Hello! This is going to be one of my (now) rare non-makeup posts! I really should make more of these; I feel like sometimes my blog is just a recap of my videos and it doesn't ever provide any additional content. And who wants to read that? No one, that's who! I'm not sure if I want to make this blog more personal and start talking about my everyday life along with my various makeup and "Look what I bought!" posts. In the beginning, before I was as into makeup as I am now (and before I made videos), I feel like there was a lot more variety in the things I talked about. Maybe I'll and get back to that, though I never was very good at keeping up a journal/diary.
This post is going to be about the special Sylveon Collection boxset form the Pokemon Trading Card Game! I got this boxset before it was even supposed to be on shelves; I first saw it in Toys R Us and even though it was $25 (when I buy these box sets, I don't like paying more than I would for individual packs of cards so this is a little on pricey side) I had to have it. When I went to check out, the cashier had to call a manager over since the computer wouldn't let me buy it. He said he couldn't sell it to me before the street date, and that was fine, but for some reason, even though I told him it was okay, he kept explaining to me why he couldn't sell it to me. I had to tell him it was okay three or four times before he stopped trying to explain. I used to work retail, so I know how awful people can be, so he was probably used to people getting really angry and not understanding. He was also dealing with some shoplifters at the same time, so he wasn't having the best time (there was a couple that were apparently being watched and they got SUPER angry about it and started swearing and yelling and just making a scene. It's like...if you weren't doing anything wrong, why get so angry that people were watching you? Nothing is more obvious than getting that mad). I was pretty sad I couldn't get the set, but luckily, another store my husband and I went to that night had them in stock! And were willing to sell it to me! For only $20!
Like everyone who like Pokemon, I love the Eeveelutions! They're adorable cat/dog creatures and they come in many different types. My favorite Pokemon from the first 151 is an Eeveelution; Vaporeon. It seems every game or so now, Nintendo comes up with a new Eeveelution. For Pokemon X & Y, the new Eeveelution was Sylveon, a Fairy-type. This boxset celebrates Eevee and all it Eeveelutions, including the brand new Sylveon and Fairy-type (which was also first introduced in X & Y).
In this set you get:
I think this was a very lucky boxset since I got some nice cards in my booster packs!
I'm super happy I was able to get this boxset! It has a great collection of Eeveelution cards, an adorable Sylveon figure, a special Sylveon and Fairy-type energy card, AND I got some great pulls in the boosters! If you like Pokemon, especially the Eeveelutions, I say get this set!
Thanks for reading! <3
