kawaii addiction


One can never have too much kawaii-goodness in their life. 

I think I have an addiction when it comes to Japanese stationery. I have SO much. But… but… I never really use it! I will use the paper pads for writing my to-do lists, but the really fancy stuff remains sealed. I think it's more of an "art" collection than something I buy for actual use (I'm really smart with my money). I mean, I would LOVE to use it- but I don't think I have any friends who would appreciate a nice little letter on some cute stationery. Maybe I will find a use for a it someday, but for now- I just admire it's beauty. Do you guys collect anything?

    3. Well, Japan is a really cool place that has so many places to explore within it. If I had the chance to go to Japan or Tokyo or some place like that, it's definitely a "YES!" Kalel, you inspire me so much that you are like an older sister to me, even though we have never met before. It would be really cool to met you. I have diabetes, so the "Make A Wish" foundation should call me and ask what I want for a day. For that day (if it ever happens) I want to hang out with you and Anthony. Just to talk and sort of become friends. Thank you, Kalel. I think I found what I want to be when I'm older. A clothing designer, like you.

  23. YESSSS! Someone who gets it!!!! My boyfriend thinks that I'm crazy because I buy cute things (like Sanrio stationary & plushies and a lot of limited edition Hello Kitty items) and I don't open most of them. It's like, "Hello! They're ADORABLE! I don't want to ruin them!!!" LOL I just want to admire them and feel inspired.

    I believe that passion keeps us young. Never abandon what inspires you, Kalel! ♡

  26. When I was a child (6-13) I used to get so excited to go with the mall with my parents, just to beg for a $20 Japanese stationary set from a small stall. So expensive, but so worth it (drool). The most hardest part was choosing which out of the kawaii stuff did I wanted to take home. I was in love and addicted to them<3
    I wish I could collect them again :')

    ReplyDelete
  27. You can't really get hold of cute Japanese stuff in the UK unless you get it shipped from the US or from Japan itself, which is quite expensive...which sucks!:(I would love to collect cute stationary! It looks so kawaii*^.^* at the moment, I collect funko pops and Disney DVDs *.*

    ReplyDelete

  29. I have a disturbingly large collection of lalaloopsy dolls. Nevermind the fact that I'm nearly 23 and strapped for cash; button eyed plastic dolls are more important than paying off student loans anyway. /responsible student

    ReplyDelete
  35. I collect McDonalds Happy Meal toys! I have been since I was maybe 7 (18 now).
    I have a giant box full of them.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ugh, they're all so adorable! :O I'd probably do the same if I had all those cute books! I constantly buy notebooks that I never use, but nowadays I TRY to use them, but then I get bored of doing whatever it is I started with them and tear out pages to start again, to the point where there's nothing between the covers! D: It's an awful habit I'm trying to break! XD

    At the moment I'm collecting Manga books and comics, I even have two authentic japanese mangas my dad brought back from Japan! They're really cool but it's a shame I can't read them! :/

    ReplyDelete
  37. I used to collect stationary just like these when i was younger (but not so young!). I still look at them lol they're just so pretty. Japan knows what they're doing. As for other collections... well i tend to collect everything i like. Funko Pop, perfumes, makeup, books, games, etc. The list just goes on...

    ReplyDelete
  38. I know the feeling. I do that with new notebooks too. It takes me ages to write anything in them because I don't want to ruin the aesthetic. The struggle is real haha. Love your collection! <3

    ReplyDelete

  41. I collect stationary, pins, postcards, stickers and notebooks (kawaii ones *_*). I have many friends around the world and looove to send them letters with cute stationary and kawaii presents. I have many penpals too and they've told me they love it, mostly because nowadays it isn't a daily thing you get letters in your mail, written ones and kawaii ones <3 haha... I'd love to be penpals with you :) <3 That'd be so cute I bet, what do you think? :)
    Love your blog and vlog... (^_^)/

    ReplyDelete
  42. Kalel you're right, there's never a thing as too much kawaii :3

    you can write stories or something of the sort in them :)
    or make them into journals of your life but technically this blog is that ^^;

    I collect comics to my favorite shows such as adventure time, bravest warriors, regular show, and avatar the last airbender...those kind of things

    I'm a huge comic nerd ;)
    Love ya Gyrlllllll :D

  43. A group of my lolita friends and I recently decided we needed to find a use for all our cute stationery and are currently in the process of writing letters to each other, like old school pen pals! So happy to have a use for all my kawaii things, and to recieve more kawaii things in return. Sharing the kawaii haha.
    I love Rilakkuma myself. Slowly finding my bedroom, kitchen and study being taken over with more and more Rilakkuma themed plush, pictures, stickers, cups, utensils. It's bliss!

    P.S. You are a huge inspiration to me as you aren't afraid to be different and you've also inspired me to follow my dreams (I love writing and aspire to be an author one day). Thank you so much!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Omg. Kalel, I totally agree with you. I always buy kawaii stationary but never use it. It just remains sealed in the plastic so I can look at its cuteness

  67. First of all, I love how expressive you are with vlogging and blogging.

    Collecting stationery is one of my favorite hobbies (besides playing video games but that is a different story haha)
    1) I used to collect stickers...I used to have a booklet of stickers! I just realized I have an Android sticker that I don't know what to do with it..
    2) I used to collect fun erasers because they just looked darn cute (most were horrible with erasing pencil shavings :-/)
    3) I now collect Japanese puzzle boxes and a BUNCH of stationery (from all sorts of places) If you'd like to just look at cool stationery, go ahead and search for Stationery Bee on youtube and I'm there! :-O

    I don't think it's a waste of money if you passionately love your kawaii stationery. I always think "Hey! It makes you happy. Go and buy the items you love"

    ReplyDelete
  70. I collect cute Disney things! I have an obsession with Disney and I love Disney's Vinylmations. They be so cute! XD

    ReplyDelete
  71. If you open a PO box, respond to fan mail with it! I'm sure your kittens would adore cute stationary with a quick note from you! :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. I collect soo many things! From comic books, to rocks, coins, jewelry, multicolored shoelaces, YOU NAME IT I'VE COLLECTED IT! It's crazy, I never end up using any if the things I collect either, it's like I'm hoarding them away in my room until I find a "suitable" use for them [I.e when the rest of the people who live with me get tired of my clutter being around and decide to throw stuff out :'( ] But I never know why I start collecting things, usually it's because I'm intrigued with how pretty, and intricate something that's well crafted can look like, and then my obsession blossoms from there Lol. But hey, at least I know I'm not alone in my collecting habits :D! Your notebooks are absolutely adorable, and I can totally understand why you're so attached to them, they're so darn cute!! I hope everythings going well, and as always have a blessed evening :)

  79. I used to collect figurines of animals and ballerinas, as well as cute stationary. Now, i love to buy a cute eraser now and then, but it can't be called a collection. You should maybe collect sketchbook-like notepads with dolls on them, to let your designer self out. Just look u Top model online, you'll get it.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Why don't you write back to some of your fan-mail with it? You guys get tons of packages & letters.

    ReplyDelete
  81. What might be a really cool idea is to write letters to fans. Of course it wouldn't be a letter to everyone, but maybe to those who just stand out or a reply to some awesome mail you get from others. Just an idea to put the paper to use. I know I would appreciate fancy paper letters! (:

    ReplyDelete
  82. I collect Kawaii Stationary too! <3 I was going to send you a letter with it but then when I was about to, you shut your P.O. Box down :(
    I love the notebooks that you've collected!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I collect KAWAII buttons, I just think they're cute and I can use them one day for decoration or anything!
