So many kawaii able items and cute styles. I was rather surprised in so many cute items , As its not a shop or a online store I go to often.

Barry M Haul / Review

As some of you cuties now, I do love the high street brand , found in most boots and super drug stores. Barry M. I saw that they have a few new products that clearly needed to be tried and tested. I raised an eyebrow to the new lipstick liquid to matte kits. As you all know I adore a good liquid matte, so had to give that a whirl, while I was at it I picked up my normal Barry M make up items and thought why not throw together a haul/ review on them...
So lets check out the items and my over all thoughts on what I think of them.

Drug store make up - impressions

So I got a few items of make up from a product haul that are mainly high street drug store ones. Mainly being good old barry M and NYX from boots. I put in a order as I was needing to stock up on some basics and needed to save on some money as I wanted to buy some more Jeffree star products. Jeffree Star is my got too indie brand but more on that later.


So I got hold of some products foundation and foundation powder from barry M which I used as my every day make up for Kawaii mummy mode. I not got time to waste my good make up on the school run and not fussed to much if it lasts all day or not. I use different foundations for different things . So I got my typical shade and a slightly darker one in the liquid as I seem to have tanned in this Scottish weather. Wait what? So that's the basic stuff out the way , I also got 2 items on the offer that was one. 

One is a HUGE bronze powder and one is a strobe cream thing. The glow bronze powder is basic simple to use and the shade is pretty and gives a nice glow. I like to use it when I don't have much time for a full face and it does the job. 

The strobe cream stick . I wanted to like it. But I hated it, It fell off the stick when I opened the lid off. I managed to save it and yea its nothing much I was really disappointed in it that product I thought it was gona be good but no its in the bin. Never mind.


Next up the the brand NYX that was from boots online too. I got a eye concealer, I wanted to get rid of those dark eye designer hand bags but found this to be super heavy on my 1st try and it made more creases under my eyes so I will give it a other go but am not to impressed with it. Update. I have reused this now but again getting the same issues however its been better to use this as a cover up concealer for those sneaky blemishes that have surfaced of late.


The other thing I got that is NYX  was the tango with bronzing powder , which is a fancy compact and I got the one in the animal print style powder- yest that was a selling point for me . Its a nice product I have used is a fair few times now. However I found it way to dark in the pink/peach shade that I found it became more of a glowing blusher for me . But I do love the dark pink/ peach shade its very pretty. It came in a normal sided pan and had a mirror in the compact with the brush inside. Handy for on the go!





I also got a Illuminator highlight product from NYX as I was mega worried about my Jeffree star  skin frost being broken due to a issue of a bunch of orders being dropped on the delivery side of things. So I thought I would get a back up and also all the shades I wanted sold out in like 10 mins so I thought this would work until I saved up for more JSC. 

So I got the shade Riualistic- which has a golden sheen . Its very pretty and has a nice pay off in colour and I rather like this also the fact that its not crazy in price either and would say the pan is about a normal size. I think its a nice back up product to use or a spare . Or a nice starter highlighting product if you are new to highlighting. I did however find it a little chalky and had to blend it right in/

Finally I got a new setting spray, I normally use Neves own one, but I ran out and wanted to try a new one for a change and got the NYX  matte one. I have used this a handful of times . I often forget to use my spray which is why its only been a few times of using this but so far I quite like it. I used it on a 5K fun run with inflatable objects to climb over and after doing that and till the end of the day my make up was still in one place ,not much was on to being with as I was doing this event and didnt want panda eyes or anything haha.

So this is my mini haul of items and my thoughts on them I know NYX themselves state to be animal cruelty free but their mother company is not. Which kinda sucks but hey ho I do try my best to find more affordable animal cruelty UK brands that I personally like. Barry M is a animal cruelty free company.

And time for a new wig and bag!

Hey-y every cutie!
Today I wanted to show you my newest wig. Know am a complete wig snob. huhuh. Okay maybe snob is not the word. Am very picky when it comes to wigs. I often buy from the lockshop but due to the lack of shorter styles , I have not bought from them in a while, I like my mid-length and shorter wigs. They are much easier to look after! 

So I happen to be surfing on ebay when I spotted a few wigs, when I looked at the price , I thought well if the wig is so bad at least it only £6.  Right know I cant afford any Brand wigs with my debt of buying my camera and buying the equipment each month. So I thought . I would chance it. I picked this wig here.


I liked its shade and length. I didnt have high hopes as looking at the other items they looked like cheep cosplay items so I wondered it it was going to be a hit or miss.Well lucky for me mine was a hit. The wig is actually not to bad. Its super light and that will be due to the weave's of hair being super spaced apart , Its is adjustable for size. It came with a wig cap which is super handy . The fibers are soft but I have had softer than this. (see so fussy about wigs haha!) It do have the skin top scalp bit at the crown of the wig too.

The bangs/ fringe are long but not overly long that you have to trim it. I swept mine to the side. The colour is very close to the picture and very natural. ( my camera picked up warmer tones ~eeek) So here is a worn picture.

I like this wig for what I paid for its a bargain, I have no idea how long it will last or if its a good wig as I have only worn it for a day and a half. The best thing about this colour is its very close to the shade my daughter is naturally and she loves it when mummy looks like her haha  She can be so cute. The colour of this wig is very natural and works well with my skin tones. I am a natural Jet black and slightly olive in complexion so I can get away with most shades. Am not sure what I will end up doing with this wig if - I might use it for causal wear and days out and about with the little one. I have ordered 2 more wigs from the same seller. So I will be able to see if this is a case of a hit or miss from this place too. heh. I will let you know how they go - one will be an alternative wig to wear when am being a maid at Marshmallow Dream Maids.
So the other thing I wanted to show you today is my cheeky and funky bag its like a 3D effect bag, cartoon style. Its so funky and Kawaii! From the photo it looks so big right? DO NOT BE FOOLED! I was fully aware it was a small and flat bag!  Its got a tiny inside I can only fit in my purse, phone, Keys and Babywipes...yes the wise Kawaii mummy puts baby wipes in every bag! You end up using wipes for everything as a mummy haha!  I might be able to put a spare Pull up nappy in there but I would not be using this bag as I have other ''Kawaii Mummy bags'' to use lol!
The prices of these bags range a bit on ebay and they have a few to pick from. I love the over all quirky-ness of the bag and its something I will use if am nipping into the city or the local shops on my own or such. Plus is just so kawaii! Though Chibi bean has been eyeing it up - its only a matter of time of her claiming it as her own.
Hope you all enjoyed my post today!

Hey there cute things! I hope you all have enjoyed the festive period! 
I really enjoyed myself, spending time with my Kawaii little girl, playing family games and having many visitors! 
I was very happy to be allowed to visit the sales and do a bit of bargin shopping, no to much as am saving for my Camera and spent some money on some kawaii goodies that are on the way, Ive had a few requests to do reviews on more Kawaii toys so watch this space! Am still interested in what you all would like to see in the blog, in 2014!
So I went looking for a new jumper and while shopping I came across lots of kawaii goodies!! whoops hehe!


Here is my Haul of Goodies!


A cute set of UK Hello Kitty Pins, A Hello Kitty case/Wallet for my phone. A Coin bank of Hello Kitty that am keeping as a ornament, she has a small chip on her but its not noticeable. A Charm of Totoro and a Cute shoulder bag of Totoro!
Cute, huh?!
Not only that I also finally added to my small Totoro display in the dinning room by getting the smaller Totoro's and adding my gifted soot spirit. When I got my little Totoro's I got some fee gifts too.

Make-up Haul Review

Hello Kawaii lovers!
How are you all today?
Today I got my newest Haul of make up thanks to Superdrug 3 for 2 offer, on all make-up that is currently in stores and online. I took the chance to try some new make up and get some much needed foundation powders! I wanted to try this branded name Sleek. I have seen it many times in the shop but never got round to trying it out.
Any how my parcel came mid week with my products,since I have to travel to Superdrug or any other shop in that matter...Online shopping is a god send hehe! 
You can pick up Sleek make up online from them direct too here with the Link here, and also on Facebook .
What I do like about the Sleek Website is when you look at the products and read about them , they have a bit down the bottom where it tells you how to use the products too! Cool, Huh?!


Here are the products I got a Press Powder a Base Duo Kit and a pallet called Face form.
The product packages are,well sleek lol! 
They are simple and well all in black, am thinking its their trademark or something, I like black but the way they use the pallets and everything having a mirror is a great extra which you can see from my photos.






Each of my pieces had their own mirrors and the duo box was cleverly designed to fit the product into the box. The press powder has its own sponge, I will be using my own brushes for it though.
Here are some close ups for you to see.


The middle and right colours have more of a shimmer to the make-up and the one of the left of the Face form is a matt and slightly darker shade.I got the Light shade.




I got the Duo Set in Bamboo, I really should have gone for a lighter shade with the crem'e as its a tad to dark but nothing I cant adjust myself. I think White rose would be better or in the Shell shade. 
I now know for next time ,teehee.


Here is the Press powder that has a SPF 15 and is to give a Suede effect, I have noticed it has a shimmer through this but gives a nice matt finish to the make- up.
Am fairly happy with my items and love the Face form its great! Over all, I like the nice even base  they all give you and its easy to work with this make up and more so with the selection of shades you can buy.
I think can see me using and buying Sleek products in the future, more so with the reasonable prices for the items too. 
I have been requested to review more make up but next time I shall be looking into researching ...yup you guessed it  Japanese brands. As am looking for Dolly like eye make up its high up on my list of  eye make up products so watch this space as its gona be a great blog post to look forward too!
*But keep in mind its not just the brand or where its from that always matters, its how you do your make up to achieve your looks. 

Till next time.

I hope to use it as a Every day bag as its black but it has so much detail to it!
So I got my Bag in the Post today from Pinkoholic a really good online shop that I have ordered from many times before.
