Kawaii Box is a selection of super cute hand-picked items from Japan and Korea.  Some stationery, some accessories, some sweets, lots of cute.

Best yet, we’re signed up for another two months. Yatta!

The only drawback I can see is the wait. From shipping notification to arrival it took just over two weeks in our case. ⇒All the way from Singapore.

In terms of value, 3 months cost about £35, with free delivery.  Well worth it we say.

It certainly cutened up our day 🌞
