what’s the buzz: weekly round-up and book haul
I’m sitting writing this post with Can’t Hardly Wait on it the background (so much nostalgia – and so many ‘before they were famous’ cameos!) I’ve been completely neglecting my blog over the last several weeks, posting only sporadically. I really need to get into more of a routine and post more consistently. I keep saying it – ones of these days I’ll actually do it!
Aside from procrastinating, I’ve pretty much been living the quiet life – spending most of my free time over the last couple of weeks gaming or reading. I can’t lie – it’s been kinda fun playing hooky lol. 😉
- Jiang Cheng pin from Foxipins: This beauty arrived and I am in awe – it’s such a gorgeous pin!!
- WangXian acrylic stand from AliExpress: This stand is seriously adorable – I couldn’t resist it especially since it took influence from my very favourite Wang Yibo and Xiao Zhan photoshoot!
- Hualian pin set from Kouzi Studio: These little fellas are just super-cute! I love them so much…
- Nie Mingjue pins and XiYao pin from Billacookie: These pins are seriously awesome and I am so happy to add them to my collection.
- WangXian pin from Cosmile Time on eBay: This pin is so pretty! I am a sucker for all things WangXian!
