Once again, I got very busy with work... There was some drama that meant everyone had to pull in extra hours, including me. So for a while there, I wasn't able to do what I normally do - check my email!
And it's a good thing I did because I had been personally invited to join this new platform called Bbloggers.net
They have three main purposes: Social, Connect, & Effective.
What do these words mean to this platform?
- Social: Blog out reach allows a multi dimensional approach by not only providing visibility through respected blogs but also via their social channels, as well as our own.
- Connect: We aim to connect business to blogger, to provide a mutuality benefiting relationship. The industries we work with include fashion, beauty, lifestyle, and parenting.
- Effective: By using our services your business is able to target a highly specific set of bloggers based on their blog type, location, and experience.
How unique! I haven't heard of a service like this - it'll be beneficial for someone like me who's always trying to find new things to review! As of this post, though, it seems that there are a lot of bloggers (including me) who had already signed up but no businesses. ^^
If you happen to know any business, or if you own an independent business yourself, I think this could be a great way to find bloggers you can sample your products to in order to accumulate more business! Don't you think so? Right now, it's still its beginning stages but this could be a wonderful new thing!
What do you think? Are you going to sign up? ^^

One day, Diana
had messaged me out of the blue and asked for my address. ^^ Confused, I gave it to her and within a week, I had received my package from my lovely Diana. :3
But, let me preface this post with something that had been on my mind for a while ever since I got this package.
Lately, I've been feeling a little lonely. Actually, let me rephrase that. I've been feeling like I haven't belonged in my group of friends lately.
It's mostly my fault though, because I have this problem of being a combination of shy and paranoid. It's not a good combination. Sometimes, I'm afraid to open up and, at the same time, I'm very scared that I'll get hurt again. I'll admit - I did not have a very good life growing up. My suspicions about certain people were confirmed in ways that has haunted me for years and because of that, it's very hard for me to get close to people.
However, the people I am close to - I cherish them and I'm extremely loyal to them. I will fight for them. I will do anything to make sure that they are happy. This is the sort of person I am and I will always be.
So when Diana not only send me this package, but wrote the letter she wrote that came with the package, my heart ached a little more. It's not because she said anything bad or mean. Quite the opposite, actually.
It made me realize that I should cherish and trust my friends more. I should trust that they want me around. I should trust that they're not going to hurt me. I don't want to be hurt like that again, but... I should be a little bit more open with my friends. I hope they can forgive me for the distrust I carry. It's not because I don't want them around or I'm doing this for fun and games. But... just getting this package reminds me that there are people who do value me as a person, and as a friend. I only wish I could show my appreciation more.
I apologize for this huge essay but it's something that has been bothering me for a while. Anyway, underneath the cut are the pictures. ^^

Now, I'm going to talk about this site called modeS4U! If you remember, I made a post when I actually bought the charm on January 18, 2014
. ^^ I got the shipping notice, finally, on January 20, 2014
It took a really long while because it's being imported from Hong Kong, but I finally got my charm on January 29, 2014
along with two other very important packages - one of which I've already posted. ^^
Well, all things considering, I would definitely say the shipping is really good since it got here in only 9
days. NINE DAYS! Jeez. That's amazing. @_@ It felt longer, honestly, but that's what happens when you wait for packages, right? Time always seems to be a lot longer when you're waiting for something! ^^
Here's the package~! It's pretty small but, surprisingly, it was pretty secure! It had some ties on its back and, even though I was worried it would become unraveled on its journey, it was really was tied on tightly. No worries on that~!
After I pulled it out from the package, this is what I see:
A cute kitty bag! I think I'll save it for something else when I need to send or store something. :D But what's inside?
Well first, here's my free gift! I've read other blogs that they get sticker tape or something but I actually ended up getting a piece of green fabric - along with their business card!
Unfortunately, it's a green that it's not very pleasant on the eyes but, hm. Maybe I'll find something to use for it. :o
Anyway, on to my main package! :3
As you can tell, my charm is wrapped up safely in a plastic bag so she's safe from any potential dust and grossness that could get on her. ^^ She's so dainty, isn't she??
You can see the detail on on her. ^^ I have to be really careful though because the sheer that covers half of the head and not only that, the strings on the cellphone part might tear (but that's not modeS4U's fault - it's just how it's made). Not only that, you can see the star with the R in the middle.
Let's look at that, shall we?
As you can tell, it has the official Rilakkuma 10th anniversary and San-X's logo on there! Now we know that she's an official part of the franchise!
Well, I really hope so. For the price the I paid for this charm, it came to about roughly $9.07
, including shipping. This isn't bad at all and there are options to get it earlier but, no, this came in about roughly 9 nine days.
They do have other things they sell other than charms of course. They sell fabrics, DIY kits, stuff for crafts (which is something I really need to get to), bags, wallets, stationary and much more! ^^
Anyway, here's some extra pictures I took!
"I'm not dainty!"
Rilakkuma with his steed!
||Online, but ships from Hong Kong.
||Excellent. Communication is always open and they seem to be continously active on their social accounts!
||With a variety of cute things, cute crafts, bags, and other things, there always something new in their selections!
||The prices are pretty decent but it helps when they're on sale.
||9/10 - it's really a price gripe but the service is great! The shipping is incredibly fast, especially from Hong Kong, but the prices a little high for me at times.
