Recent Favourites #3

This was originally posted on my Patreon in December 2020 and I’m moving the series over to my blog. It has a wish list of things I want plus some interesting links from around the web.

Wish List

  • Kokoro Araiguma is too sweet and I need her healing powers! (I actually just bought this because it’s almost sold out)
  • Do you think I could get away with this Cune bunny hat in my small town or would everyone stare at me? It’s almost too kawaii not to care if they do.
  • Kumacrafts’ new tiny animal jewellery collection is ridiculously adorable and there are even versions with a little house to live in!
  • I DO NOT need this glitter sequin Pompompurin snowman plush from ARTBOX, I’ve been telling myself every day.
