hello my deerlings! it has been far over a year since i updated my blog which i must apologize for. i have been incredibly busy with my life and i have not bought anything online for myself in over a year. i also haven't really bought anything for myself, either, since my trip to new orleans last summer, and even then, a lot of that was money i did not have in my possession to actually spend. but now that i have a job again, as well as a little more free time for blogging, i hope to get back into updating!

as a huge treat to myself, i went online shopping for some much needed therapy. the things i bought here, locally, are not included, and this is all just things i purchased online! there's twenty four packages in total (not counting my osheaga tickets) coming my way over the next two months and i'm excited.

♡ tales of symphonia collector's edition release ♡

though i like to immerse myself primarily in fashion, a big interest of mine is anime and video games. though i know most of my readers may not necessarily be interested in this, i know i've posted before about video games and anime before on this blog, so it's not entirely outside my view for my own personal blog. 

this is an unboxing of the collector's edition of tales of symphonia chronicles for the ps3! tales of symphonia was not the first tales of game i've ever played (tales of destiny two/eternia was), but it was the first tales of game that i have ever completed on my own. it holds a lot of nostalgia and significance for me and is my second favourite tales of game after tales of the abyss. i new game plused symphonia on the game cube at least fifteen times with at least one hundred hours each playthrough (i do every side quest and like to overlevel my characters quite a bit). and every time i started a new file, i'd transfer affection over (it took about ten playthroughs to get colette out of my top three and that was with being super mean to hear with every skit and every gameplay choice). regardless, sheena was always my number one. genis was pretty up there because he's my bby.

would you believe i never went the kratos route? i couldn't reject spending time with sheena for kratos~

i have so many feels about this game ohmygoodness.

i was the first to preorder the collector's edition where i live and i was just so excited to finally get my hands on it! the fact that you can also get a gailardia costume for lloyd and a luke fon fabre costume for genis literally makes my heart melt. it's like melting my top two tales of games together.

i'm going to play the english voices for the first game, partly for nostalgia but also because every tales of game has been dubbed perfectly in english. but i will be playing the second game with the japanese voices. i don't particularly want to hear the symphonia cast with new voices; i really do feel like it would distract me from really taking in dawn of the new world.

for those of you who played, without spoiling any one potentially;

who was you favourite female and male character? what was your favourite pairing? what was your favourite scene? and finally, what's your favourite tales of game, if it's not symphonia or dawn of the new world? c:

please let me know! i hope you all enjoyed and happy watching, my deerlings~ ♡

♡ sponsored review: spreepicky (IMAGE HEAVY) ♡

hello my deerlings! ♡ it's been a long while since i've updated! i apologize for this. i've been struggling with my responsibilities with university, dance and plethora of other factors. it's been difficult to put aside the time to really arrange to take photos and sit down and edit them and arrange them into a review or a haul post or what have you. so i am sorry about that! i'll try to slowly begin to get back into blogging, so i hope all of you lovelies are still here to follow me! c:

with that said, i have a super duper awesome haul and review for you guys!

spreepicky, much like many of the japanese fashion stores on storenvy, is a taobao reseller store. the main thing that sets them apart, however, is their huge, wide range of products for many different styles such as fairy kei, lolita, gyaru, hime gyaru, himekaji, street fashion, and more. another thing is that they offer free shipping worldwide. this, of course, is reflected in their prices, though they are cheaper than almost all of the storenvy stores in the similar style.

spreepicky contacted me on january eleventh to write a review for them based upon my interest in their store. i've separately ordered from them about six times before and they were very happy to send me some items. throughout the entire process, they were incredibly kind, responding to tumblr messaging and emails very quickly. they did not mind answering any of my questions or even offering other items when they had offered items i already had bought prior to their contacting me. they always responded within the hour or so depending on what time of the day it was. after incredibly pleasant exchanges, they sent out the parcel on january twenty first. once the package was shipped, i received it a little bit later than usual, though not by much, on january twenty ninth.

for more information about spreepicky and how it works as a taobao reseller, you can read my first spreepicky review here and my taobaospree review here .

everything in its packaging~

lil freebies!

honestly, i'm never disappointed with spreepicky. they're always incredibly friendly and super kind in regards to answering any questions you have about product availability, sizes, anything! they respond incredibly quickly and are accessible through many different forms of communication (facebook, tumblr, instagram, email). they're highly personable and even hand write a thank you note with each order saying something very sweet and friendly. and, if you've followed my blog for even a little while, you'll know that i LOVE when businesses include hand written notes as you feel less like a number and more like a real person. the people at spreepicky go above and beyond, especially when it comes to shipping as well. their free shipping will always arrive four to eight days on average.

i've ordered from them five separate times in the past. four out of the five packages arrived on my door step exactly five days after being shipped. one order arrived six days after being shipped and this sponsored order was received eight days after shipment (mainly due to the fact where i live is constantly getting hit with snow storms every other week).

so really, they're an incredible business made of kind people and AMAZING service.

my christmas and christmas eve outfits this year~

happy christmas my wonderful deerlings!! are you all enjoying the holidays? ohmygoodness, i know i certainly am! i absolutely love christmas! i love seeing my daddy and brother and baking and being able to sit down and not have any responsibilities~ heehee. ♡

today i'll be talking to you about christmas with my family and all our traditions~ so it'll be a little more text heavy with my life style~ hope you all read until the end and enjoy!

our christmas traditions begin a few days earlier on winter solstice! we wake up super duper early and a few friends of the family shoot off fireworks outside as the sun rises~ it's super pretty and very safe, so don't worry! perks of living in the middle of nowhere on an island! then we go inside and have a huge all you can eat brekkie with tea, coffee or a bitta whiskey if you can handle it! i usually go straight back to sleep, but this year i had nutcracker, so i had to go get ready for a show!

fast forwards to christmas eve~ on christmas eve, my brother and i go to my daddy's house and we do a little early gift exchange and hang out a little after noon. i had work after that, but then i would go to my boyfriend's nana's house for their family gathering while aaron, my broham, goes to his girlfriend's. my boyfriend has a HUGE family, but they're all very close. so usually there's a cold plate dinner and then they will exchange gifts between cousins (and me) a little bit early. he has a little cousin named natalie and she's the cutest little angel on earth! after his nana's, i meet up with my mama and a friend of the family's house where there's music and tonnes of people and food~ there is where my brother will catch up with us. we usually stay no later than ten thirty or so and then we'll go back to my house and put out cookies and carrots and milk for santa!! ^^ i'll usually finish off last minute things for my boyfriend as my brother finishes off last minute things for his girlfriend and then we'll sleep.

somehow on christmas day, i still internally wake up at five thirty or six and i wait until the socially acceptable time (usually seven or seven thirty) and then pounce on my brother and drag him downstairs where mama has her coffee and is turning on all the christmas decorations like the houses and the star wars and flying snowman noisey ornaments and we open up our stockings~ with the tradition of our stocking from santa, it is essentially like a large garbage bag of gifts. it's not a stocking for all the cheaper things since i got a few expensive records and video games and books in it, but rather it's the gifts from santa.

after opening the stockings, we (my brother, mama and i) take a break, aaron usually has cereal and some treats from the stocking and mama will have some toast. after about twenty minutes of me waiting for every one to finish their food, we'll then open our gifts under the tree. but that's another tradition in itself! the way it works is that the youngest (me) picks out a gift for some one else to open (not necessarily from the person who is choosing). when they've opened up their gift, they then pick a gift for another to open (could be the person who gave them the gift or some one else). it's always fun. i was so excited to give my mama and brother their gifts since it's the first christmas i've paid for all of the gifts myself. c:

after all our presents are open, it's usually the acceptable time to actually get up and get ready or chill out a little while longer and play with our gifts. our family has a no television rule unless we're watching a film we've gotten for christmas or to play a video game!

around noon, daddy comes over and brings his gifts and we give him our gifts while mama finishes preparations for christmas lunch/dinner. mine and my brother's significant other usually arrives around the same time and we have another gift exchange and then we have some lovely food~ i always have special food since i'm a vegetarian and most of the food has meat products in it or is a meat product itself.

then my brother goes out with his girlfriend and i with my boyfriend and we meet back up at my house on boxing day for our huge day long boxing day open house with tonnes of food, alcohol, christmas music and friends~ i usually hole up in my room or stay on the couch and drink and partake in my boxing day tradition of sobbing on the couch whilst watching love actually.

heehee. ♡

what are some of your holiday traditions? do you guys celebrate a lot or just a little? how do you guys decorate (if at all?) please let me know! i love learning how others celebrate with their family, significant others and friends!

stay tuned for my christmas haul post soon~
