Cute Shop Alert!, Look What I've Got!

Japanese Stationery from Rainbowholic Shop

Posted on February 6, 2018 by

Recently both Marceline and I ordered cute Japanese stationery from the Rainbowholic Shop. We were very happy with our packages and would like to share our purchases with you.

Japanese Stationery from Rainbowholic Shop

Natasja’s #RainbowsForMyDad order

Currently Kaila is holding a fund-raising campaign for her dad who is undergoing radiation treatment for cancer. It’s a subject close to my heart, as both of my parents have had cancer. Also Kaila is such a great role-model for the kawaii community, with her love for Japan and her positive attitude, that I really wanted to support her #RainbowsForMyDad campaign by making a purchase.

It was quite difficult to decide what to get from the Rainbowholic Shop, as all items are equally cute. I ended up buying the Bande Sakura Washi and Sakura Petals Washi Tape, which I’ve been eyeing for a long time.

Both washi tapes come with a variation of about 15 different flowers or petals, slightly differing in color and shape. The shapes look very pretty and detailed and you can peel each of them from the tape to use as sticker. I can’t wait to make a sakura themed journal page with them.

I also got this cute Pokemon Dessert Plate sticker sack, with pastel colors and golden details. I love the way Pokemon such as Eevee and Pikachu are illustrated on these stickers. This sack is normally not sold separately at Rainbowholic, but the stickers do come as part of the sweet Rainbow Mail #9

My Melody is one of the Sanrio characters that I like best, so I was very pleased with this stationery set. Although this set is sold out now, you can find many other cute characters in the Rainbowholic Shop.

The package itself looked very cute, adorned with washi tape and cute personal notes from Kaila. I had a great time unpacking it and I’ll certainly order from her again.

Marceline’s Rainbow Mail

Japanese Stationery from Rainbowholic Shop

I started my first bullet journal this year and Kaila’s Rainbowholic TV videos have been a big inspiration. Since I can’t hop on a plane to Japan, I got the next best thing: a Rainbow Mail package. This Japan-themed set is curated by Kaila and came with so many cute stationery items. I love that you get a little bit of everything, so there’s some sheets of notepaper, loose sticker flakes and a card with different washi tape designs. Since I’m planning another Japan trip, this will be all be great for decorating my journal pages.

enamel pin Rainbowholic Shop

I also couldn’t resist the Rainbowholic enamel pin. While it looks super cute on my display board, I think I will be wearing it on my jacket to add a bit of colour and positivity to my day.
