If the Sailor Scouts went to Hogwarts?!

Happy Tuesday/Wednesday and welcome to another blog post! I honestly really don’t know how I got the idea for this post but I honestly just wanted to do a fun post after doing two very long (and awesome) posts and my tired brain got to thinking what if the Sailor Scouts went to Hogwarts? And if they did, what house would they be in? So if you are like me and are wondering what the answers these are you came to the right place, so let’s get right into it!

Side note I am only doing the Sailor Scouts (Inner and Outer Sensi… so yes for all you Neptune and Uranus lovers) but that’s it. I would love to do all the characters but that would just take too long, and I need to take a break from these long posts (my fingers hurt!)

Usagi Tsukino aka Sailor Moon

So out of all of them would you believe that Usagi was the hardest out of all of them to put in a house? She’s kind of a blonde so she isn’t a Ravenclaw and she’s not as resourceful and cunning like a Slytherin so that leaves it left with Gryffindor and Hufflepuff. After thinking about it for a while I finally decided on Usagi being a Gryffindor with her bravery and chivalry. So Congrats Sailor Moon, you are house Gryffindor!

Ami Mizuno aka Sailor Mercury

Complete opposite from Usagi I knew right away that Ami would be put in house Ravenclaw. In class Ami would always to be the first to answer questions and spend her breaks reading books about wizard history, potions and spells. Ami would definitely be the smartest witch of her time I would say! Congrats Sailor Mercury, you are house Ravenclaw!

Makoto Kino aka Sailor Jupiter

With her strong ambition and good use of resourcefulness Makoto would be in house Slytherin, and not because she is evil like some classmates may think she is, because she is absolutely not! House Slytherin should be happy to have Makoto’s awesome cooking skills, there’s always a cooking party in Slytherin! Congrats Sailor Jupiter, you are house Slytherin!

Rei Hino aka Sailor Mars

Rei was easy to sort in a house and that is house Gryffindor. She is very brave and out of everything she has a lot of nerve… especially when it comes to bugging Usagi! But her bravery triumphs over everything and that has earned her in house Gryffindor. So congrats Sailor Mars, you are house Gryffindor!

Minako Aino aka Sailor Venus

I know I had a special spot in my heart for Minako when I was watching Sailor Moon because just like me, Minako is house Hufflepuff! **GO TEAM HUFFLEPUFF!!** She’s very loyal, patient and yellow is just her color! (I’ve kind of noticed that with a lot of the scouts…hmmm) Maybe with Minako’s skills, Hufflepuff will finally win a Quidditch World Cup? Maybe? Congrats Sailor Venus, you are house Hufflepuff!

Chibiusa Tsukino aka Sailor Chibi Moon

So just like her mother, when Chibiusa grows up she would of course be in house Gryffindor! At such a young age she has already shown bravery and chivalry in and out of being a sailor scout and that has definitely given her a spot in Gryffindor. So congrats Sailor Mini Moon you are house Gryffindor!

And now time for the Outer Senshi!

Michiru Kaioh aka Sailor Neptune

 

So as much as I wanted to put Michiru in house Hufflepuff (for her loyalty and dedication to a certain other scout) but her intelligence and knowledge has put her in house Ravenclaw! She may not be as smart as Ami but her love for the violin and wit has landed her a spot in Ravenclaw! Congrats Sailor Neptune, you are house Ravenclaw!

Haruka Tenoh aka Sailor Uranus

Who would I be if I didn’t put Haruka in house Slytherin?! His cunning personality and ambition in fights has landed him/her a spot in house Slytherin! Also, can we picture Haruka in a Slytherin uniform?! I would not mind seeing that. So congrats Sailor Uranus, you are house Slytherin!

Setsuna Meiou aka Sailor Pluto

Because of her loyalty to Chibiusa and the Royal Kingdom, Setsuna is joining house Hufflepuff! **GO TEAM HUFFLEPUFF!** I can never get over how loyal she is and is so good towards the Royal family, they know they are safe with Sailor Pluto around! So congrats Sailor Pluto, you are house Hufflepuff!

Hotaru Tomoe aka Sailor Saturn

And last but not least, we have Hotaru! Now she is a hard one to decide but I think that she would be in house Slytherin, and not because she was evil for a little bit. She is very cunning even at such a young age and is a very powerful girl, she would be a very powerful witch. So congrats Sailor Saturn, you are house Slytherin!

BONUS!! Mamoru Chiba aka Tuxedo Mask

So of course I couldn’t do the Sailor Scouts without doing the main man Mamoru! As much I would love love love to put Mamoru with Team Hufflepuff because of his loyalty and patience (and with Usagi, you need patience) I have to put him in Gryffindor for his bravery! That man is so brave, he always puts a brave foot in every battle, because do you know how many times he has saved Usagi without even thinking about it?! So congrats Tuxedo Mask, you are Gryffindor!

Conclusion

So that’s it! What do you guys think? Do you think I sorted them in the right houses? Let me know what you guys think in the comments below! This idea was the result of a tired brain but in all honesty I had so much fun doing it! If you want me to do other Sailor Moon characters or any other animes (I have a few shows in mind) just let me know in the comments below as well as any other ideas for posts! I hope you guys enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed making it and I will see you guys on the next post!

If you aren’t following me on social media you should totally do it for first updates on new blog posts and random posts about me and my life!

My Spring/Summer Purse//What’s In My Bag??

Happy Tuesday/Wednesday and welcome to another blog post! I’ve wanted to do this post for a while and since we are in the beginning of summer (it’s already so hot here already) I thought it would be a great time to let you know what’s in my Spring/Summer Purse! Now I will be honest, a bunch of stuff in my purse you have already seen in other blog posts, but hey I love these items so much! So let’s get right into!

The Purse

First let’s talk about the purse. The purse is a mini backpack from Forever 21. The reason why I wanted a mini backpack this time around is because the cross body purse I was using before was starting to hurt my shoulder from the weight of carrying all the stuff on one shoulder. So I thought “Why don’t I just even out the pain from just one shoulder to both shoulders?!”. I knew what I was looking for, I wanted to shy away from the usual black or grey purses I normally get and get a pastel pink mini backpack. When I went in to my nearest Forever 21 they had the style of mini backpacks I wanted but not in pastel pink. So I ordered it online and in a few days top it was in my hands. I was nervous since I was ordering it online that it wouldn’t fit all my stuff but I am happy and relieved to say that it all fit! I love how it is very lightweight (even with all my stuff in it) and it is perfect for carrying a lot or a little during the spring and summertime. I’ve had it for about 2 months now and it is still in good shape, so I hope it lasts a while!

The Pin that Started it All

I knew that I wanted a new purse right when I started to get really sick of feeling pain in my shoulder, but I didn’t know what purse I wanted. Then I was shopping at Hot Topic and I found this Sailor Moon Transformation Brooch pin and I knew right then and there that I needed a pastel pink mini backpack to put this pin on. Now I did have a hard time getting this pin on (with the fake leather and loose pin back) to the point that I almost gave up on it, but I’m glad that I didn’t because it turned out so well! I always get compliments on it and asked if it is a sailor moon purse (like if the pin came with the purse) but nope… I put it together myself and I am so proud of it!

Sailor Moon Keychain

Since I was going with a Sailor Moon themed purse I wanted a keychain that would go with it so when I found the brand Sugarbones on Instagram I knew they would be perfect. Sugarbones is an artist/designer based in Canada who creates pins, patches and art prints of things that supports girl power, fighting crime and the forces of evil while looking completely kawaii :)… and Sailor Moon is one of those things. You will definately see more of Sugar Bone on my website/social media, I love what she does and I can’t wait to see what else she creates! She recently designed two Sailor Moon inspired keychain souvenirs, one from Crystal Tokyo (which is a beautiful pastel blue with pastel pink roses around it) or the Negaverse (aka Dark Kingdom) that is a beautiful purplish maroonish color with red roses around it. I was originally going to get the Crystal Tokyo keychain because of the matching pastel colors, but the dark/black loving half of me has always connected with the Dark Kingdom, so I chose that one. With this keychain dangling, if you can’t find me, just listen for a jingle from this keychain and you’ll find me!

Car Keys… aka more Sailor Moon Keychains

 

First let’s start with what is in my front little pocket. Now you don’t need to see my car keys because you know what car keys look like, but you haven’t seen the keychains that are on them! Now I had these keychains long before I had the idea for the Sailor Moon mini backpack but it’s kind of cool how it all turned out like it.

The first two has an old keychain and a new keychain. The Luna cupcake is from a dear friend who saw it while shopping and thought of me, which was so sweet of her, so thank you Tina! The bow with the little moon stick is pretty new, I found it at Barnes and Noble when I was shopping with one of my dear friends.

The last two are my two favorite keychains (not saying I don’t love the other two). The moon stick is my oldest keychain (as you can tell with how dirty and old it is), it is actually one of the first ever sailor moon items I’ve ever had. The other keychain is from of my bestest friends ever. Last year around this time her and her family went to the zoo in which even though I was invited I couldn’t go. So she surprised me with this keychain with an adorable elephant on it! Now that I have become a shift supervisor and don’t work at the same store anymore I cherish the keychain even more. Sailor Moon keychains may come and go but I will always keep and cherish this item of friendship.

Cosmic Heart Compact Mirror

If you haven’t noticed yet, but I love shopping at Hot Topic. They have a bunch of great anime items, band tees, and some unexpected great finds, this item is one of those great finds. I have been meaning to try to find a compact mirror because I am sick of pulling out my phone camera when reapplying lipstick. It just so happened that it was a Sailor Moon one that I found! And before anyone asks, unfortunately no the heart on the inside doesn’t do anything when you push it. Believe me I’ve tried, millions of times.

Chapstick and Lipstick of Choice

I also carry around my favorite chapstick and the lipstick I wore the day before. My go to chapstick is “Nivea Smoothness Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen Lip Care”. It is getting hotter by the day and the last thing I want is to have sun burnt lips (especially when I wear liquid matte lipstick quite often) so this chapstick keeps my lips feeling moisturized and protected from the sun. The lipstick is “LimeCrime Bloodmoon Liquid Matte Velvetine”. This is currently my favorite color. It gives me a dark red matte lip that makes my outfit from normal to dark and sexy.

Things You’ve Already Seen

The funny thing about this now is that I didn’t realize it until I grabbed the coin purse out of my bag that I almost have one of each of Sailor Moon’s transformation brooches. I just need one of Crisis Moon and Eternal Moon than I have all of them!

Now back to more things you haven’t seen yet!

Totoro Wallet

Recently my sister, mom and I went to the CelebrAsian festival downtown to celebrate everything in the Asian culture! Not only was it fun cause I got to have some well needed family time but I got to eat some delicious Filipino food (my mom’s side of the family is Filipino) and check out all things Asian! While we were there I got a really cute Totoro makeup bag and this adorable Totoro wallet! The colors go well with the pastel theme I have going on with my purse, and even though you can’t see it there’s a cute dangly tossle on the side of it. Plus since it folds, it fits so much easier than the big wallet I was using before.

Flamingo Notebook

I found this great notebook at World Market. I got this back in January just in time for the start of my new promotion, so it was great timing on my part. All I use it is for work but I really don’t know what I would do without it. Just having it and writing the list of things I have to do helps me get through the shift.

Glasses Cleaner Kit

Another thing I cannot live without is this glasses cleaner kit from Target. In the kit it comes with a cleaning spray, cleaning cloth and pre-moistened cloths. I love this kit because it is small enough to be on the go but does the job perfectly. My friends who doesn’t wear glasses always tease me when I pull it out of my purse, but the friends who do have glasses always ask me to clean their glasses as well.

Portable Charger

Another strange but useful item I keep in my purse is a portable charger I got from Target. I originally got it for the little day trips I have been having with my family and friends (going to be useful for a small weekend trip I’m planning this summer) but with the shortage of charging cords in my apartment, I’ve been gravitating towards using this more. Plus it’s rose gold so it goes perfect with pretty much everything I have!

Cinnamon Gum

The last but not least is just a pack of gum to hide my coffee breath. There’s not much more to say than that ha.

Conclusion

So that’s it! I hope you enjoyed this “What’s in My Bag?” post. What weird but useful things do you have in your purse? If you have any ideas for a blog post, as always you can comment down below! I also linked somewhere in this post another blog post talking about my pastel pink collection so if you haven’t read that one yet, there’s that link there! I hope you all have a great rest of your week and I will see you on Sunday!

My Favorite Anime Openings!

Happy Tuesday/Wednesday and welcome to a better late than never blog post! –>new saying for late posts tehe :D. Ever since I did my anime tag a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been inspired to do more posts like that. Last week I let you know my Top 10 Anime Crushes, and this week we’re going to talk about my favorite anime openings!

Ah anime openings, the gateway to an anime. Have you ever had chills listening to an anime opening song? Have you ever watched a full anime and have never skipped through the anime opening sequence? Have you ever listened to an anime opening song and craved more so you look up the full version of a song? I am here today to share the anime openings that I have answered yes to these questions. Like or dislike the anime, let’s totally ok! But for now let’s put those feelings aside and just appreciate the wonderful mix of songs and anime opening sequences…so let’s get started!

Bleach OP1 “Asterisk” by Orange Range

Bleach has a lot of great openings, but the one that will always come to mind is the opening for the first season. Right when it starts I get all of the feels of when I first got into anime when I was younger. I love seeing all the characters as well as the wide range of colors used in each sequence.

Sailor Moon English Opening by Nicole and Brynne Price

Speaking of bringing all the feels back, in my “Anime Tag” Post, this was the answer to my favorite anime opening post question, so of course I had to mention it here. I remember looking forward to watching Sailor Moon when I was little and I was always the one to sing along to the song. Even now as an adult, if I even hear the words close to any of the lyrics I burst out in singing.

Sword Art Online “Crossing Field” by LiSA

This is one of the anime openings that I can’t skip through the anime opening, and that includes the second time I rewatched the anime. I love how in the sequence it shows the characters Kirito and Asuna as two separates but by the end they were brought together by the game.

High School of the Dead Theme Song by Kisida Kyodan and The Akebosi Rockets

There is so much I could say about this anime, but this post is just for the anime openings so that’s where I’ll try to keep it to. No matter how I feel about this anime, I love love love the opening. The beat is great and just keeps growing until you get major chills down your back during the chorus…literally every time I listen to it I get chills. This is one of the songs I listen to when I need to get a blog post out because the upbeat gets me pumped about writing.

Dragonaut the Resonance “Perfect Blue” by Jazzin’ Park

First of all, if you haven’t seen this anime you have to watch it so good! Second, this is the anime opening that I craved more and had to listen to the full version. I love how the sequence shows each character that if it’s your first time watching, you feel like you already know a little about them just by watching the opening. And that’s what anime openings are for, they are gateways to the anime, so it matches perfectly!

Attack on Titan “Guren no Yumiya” by Linked Horizon

So I know in my “Anime Tag” post I said that the “Sailor Moon Theme” is my favorite anime opening, and while yes it is number one in the feels, but if we are talking about the actual anime opening Attack on Titan would be number one. Like oh my gosh… usually I get chills during the chorus like during “High School of the Dead” but right on the get go I was getting chills and was on my feet for the whole opening. And it’s not just chills the first time type of anime opening. Like I’m that type of person that when I find a song I like (anime opening or not) I put it on repeat. With this anime I can listen to it multiple times and still get chills non stop. With this anime opening it is also hard to try to work on something like a blog post and not get distracted by watching the opening as well because there is so much awesomeness going on with the anime sequence as well. Especially the last couple of seconds… this makes me more and more excited for the next season!!!

And that was the last one! I hope you guys enjoyed this blog post! I’m still very inspired to do more post like these and if you have any ideas for my “Favorite Anime…” or “Top 10 Anime…” let me know! Also let me know what are your favorite anime openings as well! I’m always looking for new anime openings to enjoy, even if I haven’t seen or enjoy the anime!

Thank you again for spending time with me, and I will see you on Sunday!

XOXO,

Kat
