I really should be studying for half-yearlies, but I'm finding time to blog about this lovely Japanese goods shop: Blippo.com! They are a 'kawaii', Hong Kong based shop which sell a huge range of candy&snacks, stationary, accessories and homeware as well. This is the perfect shop to buy some gifts for friends from, I'm sure you'll be able to find a little something for every friend :)
'Blippo is your number 1 source for all things Japanese and Kawaii! Since 2003 Blippo has held the Europe's largest selection of kawaii products from all sections of Japan pop culture.'
The team at Blippo are really amazing and they make sure to connect with their customers across all bases; Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Youtube, Tumblr and Instagram. There's so much interaction with consumers that a more personal relationship is built with each and everyone of you, a huge positive aspect of Blippo's service.
In addition to this, let me just mention my favourite part of Blippo... FREE SHIPPING :D Firstly, they ship to almost every country in the world, and secondly, shipping costs NOTHING internationally! I am a huge online shopper and absolutely hate finding a cute product that's seemingly cheap at first, then at checkout, shipping costs basically as much as the product. This way, when you get to checkout with Blippo, there are no nasty surprises.
So Blippo have kindly sent me some products for review. They let me know that I could choose any products, so I thought I'd go for the range to show my readers. I received five items: a keyring, a phone case, sticker set and a makeup bag. Let's go onto these products ➢
1. Blippo All Stars Keyring
Cost: Free with purchase
So I'm not sure what Blippo has to do with the Shibuya Dance League, but this keyring came as an extra little gift (which you get with every order). I think it's very cute and great to just clip anywhere (especially as I'm going for my P's next week - might be able to use this for my potential car keys! Woo!). The pink is a great standout against the monochrome colours in the background. The key ring is made of rubber and the back a little bit old and yellowed, but it's completely fine otherwise.
2. Coffee and Dessert Earphone Jack Charm
This is style 3 of the coffee and dessert earphone charm, and I absolutely love the little Starbucks mug. It looks so cute poking out the end of my phone and always gives me sweet thoughts. The cream froth of the coffee is quite realistic, along with the green syrup. The earphone jack feels sturdy in quality overall, however the link between the dessert and the hot drink is quite frail.
3. Iphone 5 Flip Case
I was probably most excited for this iPhone case to arrive, because I've been using the same cat case for the past year (just because it's protective ability is over 9000) but I've been wanting a change recently. It's not that I'm lacking in iPhone cases, but I'm definitely looking for something that is more stable for my iPhone and will keep the screen from cracking if I drop it (my nightmare).
Another great feature of this case is the hidden magnets that keep it closed. It's easy to keep the cover closed and even easier to just flip it open to check the time on your phone or new notifications. Practicality at its finest haha
This sticker pack is so cute and very Japanese as it contains heaps of stickers of the kawaii emoticons. Each of the stickers are transparent, apart from the design. Plus, the little character people at the bottom of the sheet are stickers as well. And unexpectedly, for such a low price, these stickers are really good quality. They have that contact-y feel and none of the designs are poorly printed.
5. Mentos Cosmetics Pouch
Cost: $13. 61
I was also really excited for this product to arrive, since I just organised all my makeup and needed a new cosmetics bag to put my most essential items in. The bright colours and candy print of this pouch is so cute and joyful. The canvas material used for bag is very durable and of great quality. The bag comes safely in a plastic sheet, and a foam block inside, to keep it from creasing or getting dirty.
Overall, I was heaps happy with the products that Blippo.com sent me as well as their great customer service (email responses are heaps fast). There are loads of advantages to shopping at Blippo and it's the perfect place to purchase some cute presents for friends or family :D
In addition to this, there is a HUGE sale going on right now at Blippo.com! In fact, 800+ products are now on sale, where you can save up to 80% :) What better time to buy some kawaii japanese goods!
