Strapya Weekly: Job Gains & More Sales

So I haven’t updated this in about a week. A lot things happened – mostly depression about my current situation and other reasons. However, I was surprised this week when I got hired at a fast food place! Yay! Maybe there’s hope yet! It’s not much but a job’s a job, right?

Also, I’m planning to do a review soon – so keep an eye out for that this week! And a surprise! I honestly can’t wait. I’m just glad that things are seemingly starting to get better!

Anyway, let’s get to this week’s Strapya Weekly!

You know, I hate waiting. I hate waiting especially when I’m hungry. It gets me frustrated (or worse if there’s other things on my mind) and I get headaches when I’m hungry. So Strapya decided to release this device called the “Smart Han”! Basically, it’s a tube that caries your lunch and you can take it wherever you go!

As of this post, it’s on pre-order and the only have two colors blue and pink.

While it is a clever idea, I know that won’t satisfy me. I’m definitely the type of person who needs to eat 3 full meals a day along with little snacks. Although this could be seen as a snack in my eyes, hmmm…. What do you think?

Well, I think it’s a cute idea! I wonder if they’re going to release it in other colors as well!

Even though the iPhone 5 is delayed again, here are some cute covers for you to look through anyway!

They have these glittery cases as well as ones with pop art and even mother of pearl! Here’s what’s available: PopnGo Paisley Case for iPhone 5 (Blue), PopnGo Paisley Case for iPhone 5 (Pink), PopnGo Paisley Case for iPhone 5 (White), PopnGo Mother of Pearl Natural Shell iPhone 5 Case (Black), PopnGo Mother of Pearl Natural Shell iPhone 5 Case (White), PopnGo Glitter iPhone 5 Hard Case (Pink), PopnGo Glitter iPhone 5 Hard Case (Purple), & PopnGo Glitter iPhone 5 Hard Case (Silver)!

Again, as of this post, they’re on pre-order so I’d suggest that if you do plan on purchasing the iPhone5, I’d consider buying these now and continue to build up your savings for it. As for me, I really love the glittery purple case! I’m actually 100% sure there’s going to be a Rilakkuma cover for the iPhone5 so I would just wait for that, haha. Which one would you get?

There’s going to be a Fall Sale-a-thon, even though it probably already started. Here’s what’s going on: You’ll get 5 different offers during the Sale-a-thon. The offers will change daily and it’ll only go for 5 days (from September 8, 2012 to September 12, 2012).

A New Member of Strapya World Appears~!

So it looks like that someone new has joined the Strapya Staff! His name is Pierre Lin and in celebration of his arrival, Strapya World is introducing a sale! Whoo hoo!

You can get 20% off your next purchase (of course if your order is the minimum of 5,000 JPY). Not only that, because they’re so excited for the new arrival on their staff, this sale is going go from August 29, 2012 to September 02, 2012.

However, you can also get a an extra 10% discount if you answer the following quiz:

01. Where does Pierre come from?
02. What is his favorite sport?
03. When is his birthday?
04. What is his pet peeve?

Maybe you can pick up some hints here on the main page (especially if you watch the video)! If you do get it the code is valid until September 30th, 2012! Feel free to e-mail your questions to word@strapya.com. So what can you do with such a deal? Why, check out these items:

There’s these cute Hello Kitty plushies with leopard print on them! Here’s what they have for right now: Sanrio Hello Kitty Leopard Plush Doll (White/Small), Sanrio Hello Kitty Leopard Plush Doll (White/Medium), Sanrio Hello Kitty Leopard Plush Doll (Pink/Small), Sanrio Hello Kitty Leopard Plush Doll (Black/Small).

These are pretty cute! They certainly go with the trend that leopard print is trending in Japan now, for sure! Maybe the Gyarus there can carry them whenever they’re wearing their pink or regular leopard prints.

This cute set actually comes in full and with the entire figures (which is why the price is so high!). They’re obviously fake but ugh, I would so have these covering my desk, dresser, and even coffee table! Of course, I’d probably keep the cakes in my room just as helpful device to keep my cravings in check!

And there’s even a personal opinion from Marimo!:

Have you ever dreamed to visit Rilakkuma Cafe or Cake Shop? At this dreamy place, you will find Rilakkuma everywhere. The Rilakkuma Cake Shop Petite Figure may realize your dream! Get these petite cakes featuring Rilakkuma, Korilakkuma, and Kiiroitori!

One day, you will be mine!

Okay, these are really freaking cool! These are LED covers for the iPhone 4/4S that flashes whenever you get a call or a message. That’s… really neat, actually. I can imagine it’ll drain your batteries further though.

But can you imagine being out with your friends at night and then your phone rings? Instead of just music playing and you trying to find it, you can pick it up easier with the flashing light calling to you! That’s just so neat! Here are the designs it comes in:

LED Flashing Case for iPhone 4S/4 (UFO) (sold out), LED Flashing Case for iPhone 4S/4 (T-shirt), LED Flashing Case for iPhone 4S/4 (Slot Machine) (sold out), LED Flashing Case for iPhone 4S/4 (Skull) (sold out), & LED Flashing Case for iPhone 4S/4 (Guitar).

Honestly, if I didn’t have my heart set on a Rilakkuma phone cover and if the Skull one wasn’t sold out, I’d be extremely tempted to get one of these. But alas. I hope they can restock soon! These are really neat!

I’m going to try balance it out more and talk about both the Samsung Galaxy S III and iPhone covers at the same amount of times. Like since I already talked about a set of iPhone covers, I’m going about a set of Samsung Galaxy S III covers.

Anyway, these are super cute! Now you can dress up your Galaxy S III with a little kimono! Here are the designs:

KIMONO Samsung Galaxy S III Case (Tsubaki), KIMONO Samsung Galaxy S III Case (Takara), KIMONO Samsung Galaxy S III Case (Sakura/Purple) KIMONO Samsung Galaxy S III Case (Itomaki/Black), & KIMONO Samsung Galaxy S III Case (Hanahoshi/Sparkly Gold).

And that’s it! I hope you enjoy that sale! Welcome to the staff, Pierre!

Also, one more thing: I’m probably not going to do Strapya Weekly until Monday or Tuesday because I’ll hopefully be hanging out with my friends at Saboten. ^^

Strapya Weekly: A Couple Days Overdue But…

Well, sadly, it’s almost the end of summer. Hopefully, you’ll rack up enough grades to earn yourself a place at the top of your classes! And on top of that, my deepest apologies for being a couple of days late! I’ve gotten sick again and I had to take a few days to recover. I’m feeling a bit better now, if you’re wondering, so back to the usual!

In this edition of Strapya Weekly, we’re gonna look at some secret sales, a Facebook page sale, and as well as some cute stuff for the weekly iPhone cover as well as some Samsung Galaxy SIII covers.

New designer Okada Momo has been quite busy! First she’s designed a line of Pokemon toys that was released earlier this month and now these phone covers: Sanrio Characters x Momo Okada Character Jacket for iPhone 4S/4 (Hello Kitty), Sanrio Characters x Momo Okada Character Jacket for iPhone 4S/4 (My Melody), Sanrio Characters x Momo Okada Character Jacket for iPhone 4S/4 (Pompompurin), and Sanrio Characters x Momo Okada Character Jacket for iPhone 4S/4 (Cinnamoroll).

If anything, I would love to get the Pompompurin and Cinnamoroll ones! I actually really like the designs on here. They’re very creative and I tried to look up more information about the artist on Google and Tumblr but that’s about it. That’s sort of sad… I would love see what she offered to sell especially as an independent artist. As you can tell, I whole heartily support the independent artists!

And speaking of independent artists:

This was made by Craig & Karl who collaborated with PopnGo to create these three covers: Craig & Karl x PopnGo Collaborated Case for Samsung Galaxy SIII (Mosaic), Craig & Karl x PopnGo Collaborated Case for Samsung Galaxy SIII (Peace Sign), & Craig & Karl x PopnGo Collaborated Case for Samsung Galaxy SIII (Puzzle).

But if you recognized the art, but not the name, that’s okay! Strapya has you covered:

Who are “Craig & Karl”?

Craig lives in New York and Karl lives in London, yet they manage to collaborate daily to create amazing illustration and installation.

They’ve exhibited across the world for the clients such as Google, Nike, Apple, MTV, New York Times, etc.

You WILL recognize their work once you see it!! Their works are everywhere.

Now this hot duo collaborates with PopnGo, the world-wide phone case maker on GALAXY S3 LTE Case.

Pop and colorful Crag & Karl illustrations on the super light & durable polycarbonate case.

Express your personality AND protect your phone from scratches and smudges 🙂

Sweet! But never fear! There’s always some cute accessories to go with your smartphone if you don’t have either the Samsung or the iPhone:

This isn’t just an earphone jack cleaner but it’s also decoration for it! Here’s all the ribbons they have available: Ribbon Clean Earphone Jack Mascot (Heart/Green), Ribbon Clean Earphone Jack Mascot (Polka Dot/Black), Ribbon Clean Earphone Jack Mascot (Polka Dot/Colorful), Ribbon Clean Earphone Jack Mascot (Polka Dot/Pink), Ribbon Clean Earphone Jack Mascot (Star/Blue), & Ribbon Clean Earphone Jack Mascot (Stripe/Navy Blue).

I don’t think these would appeal to me since I always have something in my ear jack (whether it’s to make my phone calls hand free or if I’m just jamming to music) anyway and maybe it’s because I’d prefer those bows on my head. Hmm. What do you think? Would you get yourselves something like this?

Now, I’m not even sure if I’m allowed to even talk about this sale but… I think it’s a little unfair to keep these sales to myself, right? Especially since I’m constantly broke!

But remember: You didn’t hear it from me or this blog. Shhh…

But wait! This is a breaking news bulletin!:

ODAWARA, Kanagawa – On August 20th, 2012, Strapya World officially announced their plan to have a huge sale once they reach 22,000 fans on their Facebook fan page. Although the code will not be announced until they have 22,000 fans, they have announced that the discount code will be worth 22% off on orders over 4,000 yen. The sale will go on for 1 week after the code gets announced.

“Be sure to tell your friends to join the fan page so we can get the sale started asap, ” said Kosuke Fujii, the manager of the International Sales Department of StrapyaNext Co., Ltd. “It will be huge just like any of the previous sales we have had related with our Facebook fan page,” he said.

For now, the current Strapya World fans must attempt to increase the fan base of the Strapya World fan page in order for them to receive the discount. “Our Facebook fans are aware of all of the updates and events we post on Facebook. I think they might know more about Strapya World than I do since I have been running the new site as of late,” said James A. Sweatman, the operation leader of their new site, Genius Cell. “I still do all of the customer support for Strapya World and I get a lot of questions related with Strapya World’s Facebook page. I am hoping the Genius Cell fan page will be just as big in the near future,” he added.

Strapya World has made it clear of their intention of offering more exclusive discount coupons and promotions for their fans on Facebook. It is a great time to become a part of the Strapya World fan page on Facebook.

Wow!! What a way to save even more! I’d suggest to get more savings from just liking a Facebook page, I’d suggest to keep liking the Strapya fanpage!

Have a great weekend and try to study hard!
