Stationery Review | LUCALAB
Rating:5/5

LUCALAB's products are of high quality. International shipping is fast but delayed due to COVID-19 (it's also pricey, which is to be expected). And a 10/10 for their customer service. I've sent an email asking how long it takes to ship, and they replied within 10 minutes.
QUALITY: Everything I expected. I absoutely love their Bear Remover Stickers! If I'm being picky, there was some sticky residue on the Archive Cover [Clear Glitter], but it was removeable with some nail polish remover. Everything else came in perfect condition.
CUSTOMER SERVICE / SHIPPING: I was able to ask how long shipping would take through their Contact Page, and they replied within 10 minutes. It normally takes 1-2 weeks (but expect it to come later due to COVID-19) and they do send you a tracking number. The hardest part is waiting! I recieved my package 10 days after placing my order.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman | "The Yellow Wall Paper"
Rating:5/5

“The Yellow Wallpaper” is a long, short story written in 1890 - it aged like wine. In other words, a masterpiece. It gave me the chills! It perfectly captured the oppression of women struggling with their mental health of that time. It’s about a woman who goes to a summer retreat with her husband, a physician, to recover from her "nervous depression". She is taken care of and is mostly left alone in a large room with a bolted bed and unclean yellow wallpaper. As the story progresses, she slowly falls into madness and writes her observations about the yellow wallpaper taking life.

Kiyohiko Azuma | Yotsubato!
Rating:5/5

Yotsubato! is a light-hearted, slice of life manga. It’s easy to read, but I find 5-year-old Yotsuba charming. She says the most unexpected things as an innocent child. The art is clean, and their expressions are perfectly illustrated. It mainly features her day-to-day life. The supporting characters each have distinct personalities that add more flavor to Yotsuba’s adventures. It’s like being 5 years old all over again! This is the kind of manga that you wouldn’t want to read quickly and would want to save for the future.
