Whew – I feel like I’ve been gone forever! So much Rilakkuma news has happened while I’ve been away!
But I was so excited to come home to a special Rilakkuma gift from the lovely Ariel at Rilakkuma Desu: the first Rilakkumagazine!!
Such a wonderful way to be welcomed home! I hope they make more Rilakkumagazines in the future!
Also, my sister has officially started her study abroad program in Japan; you can read about all her (largely food-related) adventures on her new blog!
As a thoughtful sister understanding of my Rilakkuma addiction, she was nice enough to get a magnet set from the KFC x Rilakkuma campaign going on:
Yay! Maybe I can snag a box too when I got to Japan next month to visit her :)
In other news, have y’all seen these new mascot towels?
Aww they’re each holding 4 leaf clovers! They’re scheduled to come out on June 8 in Rilakkuma Stores.
PS Remember when I submitted a photo of my Rilakkuma for San-X’s Facebook photo contest?
Well, they announced the winners, and my photo wasn’t chosen T^T It’s a little confusing to me because most of the winners had under 10 votes, and some had no votes at all! I smell something fishy! I definitely saw a lot of other photos with a lot of votes that didn’t get chosen either – what a bummer.
Oh well… Thanks everyone who voted for me – I really appreciate everyone’s support, and I’m so incredibly happy to know there are so many great Rilakkuma lovers around :) Y’all are the best!
