Pusheen in the UK

Posted on August 26, 2016 by

Us poor Pusheen fans in the UK have had a hard time getting our hands on plushies and merch without paying huge shipping fees and crazy customs duties. Thankfully, there are more UK stores stocking Pusheen now, plus we get some exclusive products too.

pusheen at claire's

Claire’s is on every High Street and now has a small range of Pusheen items including stationery, phone cases, a mug and this cool backpack.

M&S pusheen

Marks & Spencer is not a place I expect to find kawaii, but they have some super cute Pusheen stationery and a few sets of pyjamas that would fit smaller adults too. My mum spotted Pusheen socks too but they don’t seem to be online.

ASOS pusheen

ASOS have some exclusive Pusheen stationery available if you want to be the coolest at school (or at home).

TruffleShuffle pusheen

TruffleShuffle have tons of stuff I haven’t seen anywhere else including t-shirts, bags, stationery, egg cups, chopping boards and hot water bottles!

And you can always rely on Artbox to stock all the kawaii Pusheen plush including coin purses and pencil cases, plus tons of cards for every occasion.

Some of these stores ship internationally too so Pusheen fans worldwide can add to their collections.

Pamela Barbieri offers some of her most kawaii illustrations for sale on Society6. You can find her prints on stationery, apparel, kitchenware, home goods and much more. I’ve made a selection of my favourite items, but do have a look at her shop for more cute prints.

These kawaii space friends are hard to resist!

The space pattern is also very cute, I would love to have it on a (travel) mug.

Pamela sells some art prints as well and my favourite one is this Milkshake girl. Her Sailor Moon and Pokefriends prints are also worth checking out and Society6 often have free worldwide shipping offers so look out for those.

Fushigi no Mofumofu Cafe

Posted on August 22, 2016 by

らいらっく

While I was browsing around on AmazonGlobal, I stumbled across an adorable book with bunnies and ice cream on the cover that I couldn’t resist getting for myself.

らいらっく

It’s called Fushigi no Mofumofu Cafe (which translates as something like ‘fluffy cafe in wonderland’) by Lilac (らいらっく) and features illustrations of bunnies (and the occasional bird and dog) relaxing in all kinds of delicious food. It’s pretty thick for a comic with 93 pages and every illustration is cuter than the last!

らいらっく

It’s split into a few sections: Western cuisine, Japanese cuisine, fast food and sweets. It’s so hard to pick out some favourites to show you as it’s all too kawaii.

らいらっく

The sweets is definitely my favourite section though, and the biggest too. It’s got everything from pastries and crepes to parfaits and cakes! Some bakery could make a fortune replicating these. There’s also some pages with daily menus for the week which I would like to sign up for by delivery service.

らいらっく

I’m so glad I got this – it’s completely adorable and I know I’ll be delighted all over again every time I come across it on my bookshelf. If you love bunnies, Japanese food and illustration, this is a must buy.

らいらっく

It’s available through AmazonGlobal for around £10/$13 along with another volume that I will have to add to my wish list. You can also get it from YesAsia for a higher price. Lilac also has a website which is packed full of even more cute illustrations.
