A whole lotta kawaii…

I am a very lucky girl, and my friends are wonderful people! My best friend in Japan is especially wonderful, and knows me so well. This week I was literally squealing with delight (sorry neighbours!) at the birthday/Christmas box that arrived from Japan. Brace yourselves – this is a whole lotta kawaii…
