Hello lovely humanoids!
This blog is all about the wonderful items that I received in March 2021. Some of these were bought by me, some were pre-ordered by me, some were gifts from fans/friends, some were rewards from Kickstarter or Patreon. Regardless of where they came from I’ll tell you all about them on this blog! (please note the date is when they arrived and not when they were ordered)
So let’s dive right in!
Banana Caramel Drizzle kitten play ears from Kitsus Creations, bought by me – March 5th
These are my second pair of kitten play ears from Kitsus Creations and I absolutely adore them! I got them specifically for an Easter themed photo set (Easter Kitten) and built my entire outfit around them.
The quality is wonderful, they’re comfortable to wear and the fact that the ears are poseable is fantastic!
Despite only being my second purchase from Kitsus Creations I’m already a huge fan. Especially as shipping is very quick, the packaging is lovely and the creator is very active online and constantly creating new and exciting sets.
I paid £46 for them.
Beetle Ita Bag from Pin & Tonic, bought by me – March 6th
I missed out on backing this bag on Kickstarter but I was very fortunate to grab a “B grade” bag that Pin & Tonic had spare. I went for the blue one (obviously) which is just stunning.
The bag is really high quality and absolutely gorgeous. So far it has my favourite pin badge divider as it’s been the easiest to actually attach my pins to. The bag is also really flexible as you have the option to wear it as a backpack or as a shoulder bag. Plus it has the cutest detachable holographic wings!
It’s a little on the smaller size but I knew that when ordering and they make the dimensions very clear on their advertising. All in all it’s a gorgeous bag and I’m over the moon with it.
I paid £55 (excluding shipping) for the bag.
Squid coins from BlackSmoke1033, bought by me – March 18th
I have been following BlackSmoke1033 (aka Fumi) on Twitter for a while but I finally gave in and bought myself two of their cephalopod currency coins. The larger is a golden squid coin and the smaller is a silver octopus coin.
Coins might not seem like an obvious item that I’d be interested in but I absolutely adore unique tokens and trinkets, so when I saw the “cephalocurrency”, as BlackSmoke1033 has named it, I just had to get some.
The coins are really cool. They’re surprisingly heavy and arrived in their own little coin cases to protect them from scratches, which is a nice touch. I also love how much effort Fumi puts into their packaging. Stickers and stamps plus hand written notes are a super cute touch.
It wasn’t long after purchasing these coins that I signed up to their Patreon mini pin club.
I spent £18 on the coins.
Lobster mini pin badges from BlackSmoke1033’s mini pin club, bought by me – March 22nd
It was such a lovely surprise to receive my mini pin club pin badges so soon after I had received my cephalocurrency coins. And once again the packaging was lovely. I really do appreciate all of the small details that some sellers are able to put into their packaging. It just makes it feel extra special.
The pins are really good quality and surprisingly detailed for being mini pins.
As part of the mini pin club you receive two mini pins, they’re both the same design but in different colours. This month was mini lobsters in antique style silver and gold.
I’m confident they’ll make great space filler pins for my ita bags as well as cute pins to add to outfits when I don’t want anything too flashy. Plus I plan on keeping some of them to act as little gifts for my friends and family.
I pay £14 per month for the Patreon mini pin club tier.
Kitten play collar from Milkittenshop, bought by me – March 22nd
I stumbled across Milkittenshop whilst browsing Etsy and looking for a collar to go with my Easter Kitten outfit. They were offering “pick your own colours” collars and had advertised that they were happy to work with people to colour match so I was hopeful that they’d be able to help me out.
And I was right!
The colour match was really good and the general quality of the collar was great. It feels sturdy enough for some gentle play but still soft enough to wear as a casual day collar and is exactly what I was hoping for.
There were add on options for things like bells but I’d opted to keep it quite plain as it was already going to be part of an outfit.
I paid £18.99 for the collar.
Phreak club Dovah dildo, gift from my Gym Bae – March 22nd
For this particular item I was extremely excited.
My very loving Gym Bae had bought me it as a gift whilst I was going through a very stressful time period and it arrived just in time for another particularly stressful time period haha. Needless to say it did plenty to help relieve that stress wink, wink.
But let’s focus on the actual product. It’s gorgeous! The colours are really pretty and blend really well. The silicone feels lovely. The one thing I would say is that despite opting for a soft shaft I would say it’s definitely the firmer end of soft – which I am fine with but it may be something to keep in mind if you plan on purchasing a toy from Phreak Club.
For the specifications of my toy, we chose:
Firmness: Soft shaft, medium base
Suction cup: Yes
Colour: Pink base fading to blue shaft
You can also watch the unboxing and SFW review video on my YouTube channel!
Along with the Dovah I got a free mini packet of Candy Kittens and a free selection of three mini toys (the free mini toys were a part of the promotion).
The outer packaging was also perfectly discreet and the internal packaging was just paper which meant that I could pop it all in the recycling bin without any hassle – which is a nice touch. The toys themselves did come in plastic packaging – obviously for hygiene reasons – but it was nice to see less plastic packaging being used.
Gym Bae paid £95 (we got a £10 discount as part of a promotion that was running at the time).
Pokémon pin badges from Popipins “Spooky Friends” Kickstarter, bought by me – March 23rd
I first backed this Kickstarter campaign as I wanted to get the Gengar pin for my Partner as a surprise Halloween treat, unfortunately due to COVID19 there were a lot of delays and the pins didn’t arrive in time for Halloween (obviously).
That doesn’t mean that I’m unhappy with them. Quite the opposite. The pins are wonderful. I really like the artists’ style that they’ve gone with. It has a “spooky” sort of vibe but in a really nice way and not an over the top ham fisted way.
The pin badges I opted for were the Gengar and Pumpkaboo versions. Gengar for my Partner and Pumpkaboo for me.
They are both really good quality and have nice rubber heart shaped pin clutches to hold them in place. The really nice thing is that each pin badge has two actual pins, so it won’t spin in place and will still be the right way up whilst pinned to your shirt/bag/whatever.
As an added surprise bonus I also received a shiny colour palette (pink) Dragonair! And a Banette Pokémon card. This was a lovely surprise and extremely nice of the seller to include.
I paid $49 Australian dollars which is about £27.47 (according to Google).
Out of the 7 items that arrived in March, I think my favourites are my Banana Caramel Drizzle kitten play ears from Kitsus Creations, my blue Beetle Ita bag from Pin & Tonic and of course my Dovah dildo from Phreak Club.

And as always, stay safe & be happy x
