Stay Super Kawaii

You may have noticed I say 'Stay super Kawaii' at the end of my post entry's.
Some of you maybe like ...oh... How on earth can I stay super cute or just be cute every day with out trying to hard?!
Well is quite easy to stay cute every day and I am not saying that you have to go around in a baby like voice because you may get some really odd looks from those who are around you all the time notice a sudden change and be like huh?!
0.o
Am also not saying you have to litter your bedrooms and houses in Japanese cuteness or Anime and go a bit over load unless you want to do the above then go ahead ....but let's take some baby steps to staying cute.
Every one can be cute in one way or a other and like cute things or personally think something is cute.
So I am going to tell you how I keep up my cuteness and it can be very easy and it depends on the way that you look at it too.
Start off with picking out what you think is cute to you,as it really do not matter what others think,If you love bunnies or kittens then you go for it and don't let any one put you down this is your style and your fashion.
So lets look into what I think is cute,Well I am a bit of a yin yang when it comes to what I think is cute as I like Gothic stuff and some girly stuff at the same time so it really do depend on what you personally think is cute
So simple ways to staying cute, accessories has a big play in this,

  • Simply wearing something cute can make you feel that little bit more cuter every day.
  • Try looking for cute piece of Jewellery that stands out  that you can wear like Kawaii charm bracelet,a Ring, Necklace and Earrings but try not to go over the top keep it simple.(but if you want to then go for it.)
  • What about taking a cute handbag to work instead of a dull looking plain one you can find some great ones online!You can also get some funky cute handbag charms.
  • Make up can be made cute also (I will be doing some how to's in the future!)Try some sweet pastel colours in eye shadow or glittery shimmers.Lipsticks come in a range of colours too and some are flavoured which I think is cool and cute more so if they have candy or sweet flavours.Again keep it simple.
  • Prints can be cute too but again you want to maybe have one item that's print with something cute like butterflies or bows all over it can work too.Or go a bit more daring and get a tee with a big bold image like a love heart or a Kawaii smiley face that's quite baggy and team it up with shorts or skinny jeans.
  • Make your stuff interesting invest in a cute and cheerful stationary and notebooks will cheer up some dull meetings,I have a Choco Cat note book I use for shopping lists!
  • Dress up your phone get a pretty and cute phone cover and add an adorable charm to hang from it.
  • Key rings can be cute too.
  • Picking out cute hair accessories are a great way to keep cute from hair bows or flowers to hair bands and pretty hair clips!
  • Be creative by adding stickers and stick on gems to your things like Decoden  ideas over in Japan.
  • Smile,Is so simple but Smiling is CUTE or make a silly face it can be cute and do not forget to laugh too.
  • Try not to have the same cute things on every day of the week change it over so it do not become dull and boring.
  • Explore other alternative cute ideas like's of Fey/Gothic/White Goth/Harajuku/Punk/Sweet and Classic.
These are just some ideas,hints and tips and not all of them will work,you have to find out personally what works for you but I hope these ideas will inspire you even if it means you go out and buy one of those pens that are in pastle green and smell of mint for work or school,Being cute can tap into your inner child and its fun to let them get out to play from time to time.

My cutest and newest thing I have got is this,Its a rubber case in pink for my phone I saw it on the internet and was like aww cute!I do like baby bunnies and I have a thing for cute ears on things like hoodies and I feel in love with the pom pom tail.

This it the front view hehe I love the ears!


This is the back view and tail.



And from the side I love it so much the tail can be removed too.
Remember, staying cute will take a while and to get used to  but just remember the following: smile, be sweet, and be friendly not annoying or fake.

So Stay Super Kawaii

Super Cute things coming this way.

Hi~Hi !
So with some changes to my accounts and social networking pages,You may have noticed Ive changed my name on some thing's.
I've taken up a new nick name ''Tartan Kawaii!''
Cute huh?
It goes well with me being Scottish and Tartan can be really cute if you can dress it up like I did in the past with my Gothic Loli (Lolita) Outfit.

So there seems to be a lot going on,Currently I am selling off some things that I no longer need as at the back of my mind there is a chance of moving away from where I am know to some where closer to the Hubby's Work  so I want to make a fresh start even if its not for a while yet its always good to have a good clear out to then make room for new and Kawaii things!

Also  I did find out that in that area there are Scottish Lolita's who meet up there about's so that's really great I joined up on their group on Facebook to get to know some of them and they are so sweet!
(Thank you to all of those kind girls whom have welcomed me x)


So over at my Facebook page Kawaii Kreations is has been renamed Tartan Kawaii and I am know a ''public figure''.
Sounds important hehe.
I will be doing lots of new and exciting things for the page and for my blog,after doing the video review and getting lots of nice comments form every one I think I will be doing lots more.Even thought Im sorta blushing at the thought of it.

I was asked if any one wanted to see how I do my make up and there seems to be an interest in this,so watch out for that space,The other topics on the page are Wigs.
I love my wigs,And Asked my likers on the page what wig I should go for I have narrowed it down to 2 wigs one from GLW and one From the Lock Shop but then this morning I found out that Lock shop have new wigs coming in...DRAMA!
Okay That is no not fair I was so close to getting a new wig  with a well long thought out choice and picked one for you to do this to me!!

;__;
*cries a little*

Know I have to wait thanks to you Lock shop just so I can see your newest wigs to then be back at square one again over picking one!
*grr*
¬.¬'
Love the lock shop!

So I think I will do something fun on my Facebook page with the wigs and I have some reviews to coming up and cute findings to show you all.



so stay supa Kawaii 
Tartan.

My very 1st Video Review

So I did a video review for Keep it Secret,I have a couple of the items they sell and saw that they like to get reviews via video ,So this is my 1st ever review I must have taken about 8 attempts to get it sort of okay and tried to keep it in some kind of structure.
I finally loaded it up  and watched it back.
*blushes*
I had no idea I was the hi pitched in my voice!
¬.¬'
I guess it add to the Kawaii factor but I thought My voice was rather low.

Anyhow the quality of the video is not the best and same with the lighting sorry about that!
So over at my Facebook page I asked if any one wanted to see my video so after lots of comments and likes I have put it up here for you all to watch!



Any advise would be great but be gentle on me as this is my 1st ever filmed piece,I'm not Camera shy but I'm shy and know more aware of my squeaky voice that I have.

Enjoy and Stay Kawaii x

Hello Kitty

Many of you Know who Hello Kitty is but I wanted to do a Blog post about who she is also done some hunting on information that some who do not know her so well find out about where she came from and her rise to fame.

Hello Kitty was created in Japan by the company Sanrio and 1st designed by Yuko Shimizu.She Is a Japanese Bobtail Cat,ever wondered why you don't see her tail.Well know you know!
Her 1st appearance was in 1974 on a coin purse  pictured with a milk bottle and Fish Bowl and ever since Hello Kitty has become World Famous loved by mostly females of all ages.

Who would have thought this small purse would have become the well known Character Hello Kitty!
Hello Kittys full name is Kitty White but was only named in 1975 as Hello Kitty .Her Family were also created Mama (Mary) Papa (George) and her Twin sister Mimmy (Mimi) .




 In 1976 Sanrio gave kitty a new pose and then in 1976 Sanrio gave kitty a new pose.1977 she was found flying a plane and in 1987 she was on the back of a dolphin.

In 1979 Kitty's Grandma (Margaret) and Grandpa (Anthony) were also introduced.They all live in London together with Kitty's Family and Friends.
Oh and she has a Boyfriend Dear Daniel who she has known as they were babies together.
= ^_^ =


It was not till 1993 when her bow got a new look and they changed it to a flower creating a opening for new outfit ideas.In 1998 Hello Kitty Puroland opened a indoor theme park its like a hello kitty fans dream place to visit.
Hello Kitty's Birthday is the 1st of November.
Right Know Hello Kitty will be 38 years old this year.
All this time they have been bring out so much kitty stuff and the ideas seem to be never ending when it comes to Hello Kitty.
On her 35th Anniversary in 2009 Sanrio really pushed out Hello Kitty and her products.
So I am in hope that they do something Big for her 40th!



Hello Kitty's current designer is Yuko Yamaguchi .who keeps coming up with super cute ideas and designs for me to fall in love with!
Have you noticed Hello Kitty's Head is more roundish looking theses Days to her 1st appearance but apart form that she has been left pretty much unchanged.

Also you may have noticed that Miss Kitty has no mouth!
They say the reason is that she has no mouth is that she speaks from her heart,But its also a cleaver selling point to she has no expression so you can project it on to her face and what you feel becomes what you see.They did give her a mouth for her TV shows though.

My Love for kitty started when I started to earn my own money and I still have the very 1st kitty I got I must put a picture up of her she is a small Kitty with a blue dress and angel wings but I am not sure but think she is similar to a TY beanie version  or a very old one.
Hello Kitty's Adorable outfits and cuteness captured my heart and ever since I have been buying her in plushes and other things that I have found for myself and for my daughter.
Hello Kitty has always been in arms reach for a hug when I  have found myself  in a gloomy day.
She seems to make every one who loves her smile no wonder she sells so much!

Stay Super Kawaii!

The Queen of the Gothic Realm

Lady Amaranth is a Alternative Gothic Model,She is the most elegant beautiful woman I have ever seen in my whole life,I came across her work through the online shop,The Gothic Shop then on many other pages,
I became a fan on her Facebook and have been amazed by her work,no work is not the work its Art that she has produced and its the most stunning Art ever ! 
>w<
I contacted Lady Amaranth and asked if she would be kind enough to let me feature her and her work in her Blog,I was so excited to get a lovely message back from her saying it was quite all right to do so,Bless her.

I give there the title The Queen of the Gothic Realm she is well known among Gothic Fans and Goth's.
She has a portfolio that has such a vast range of Gothic Fashion to Fantasy images.Every piece of Art she has done is wonderful.I can see why so many new Models wish to be like her.
Lady Amaranth has also been featured in many well known Magazines such as Unscene,Alt Fashion and Fea Magazine.

You maybe wondering why I picked Lady Amaranth,To me she is a inspiration and through her work she has shown that Gothic Fashion has such beauty in each photo.
She can take on any theme and make it work.

Lady Amaranth has attended the WGW (Whitby Goth Weekend) in the past,A small sea side village that holds a Gothic even twice a year.This place is a place where I went for many years on holiday,I hold it dearly in my heart with the sea side and Gothic tales of Ghosts and even the Dracula walk,Its called to many Goths,Fans and know Models over the years.
I'm actually surprised I never met her down there!?
 >__<

Whitby was the place that got me into the Gothic Scene when I was a Teenager.I bought My 1st Spiked Dog Collar there with my Dad (Still have it!) and then many Gothic outfits,So I find that with having this old fondness of Gothic wear and new interest in Lolita it makes it easy for me to mix the two to create lots of ideas for my own outfits.

I also think that Lady Amaranth can even do her own Lolita inspired work with ease,as she suits Lace and Ribbons with her Gothic outfits and her Make up is done so well with such detail and skill.Not only is she a model she is a Web Designer and Writer too.
So here are some Pieces of her Art I wanted to Share with you.

(Please note I do Not own any of these Images these belong to the Photographer/Designer and Lady Amaranth.)

''Gothic Fashion has gone from its post punk roots, through velvet and fishnet and now many people incorporate historical elements into it. 
I find each evolution has something to offer and for myself particularly indulge in the more elegant variations. 
Many of my outfits actually contain Elegant Gothic Lolita pieces, and I will always wonder into stores and sites selling the style as I find the attention to detail and quality tends to be far higher than some of the high street Gothic brands. 
However, I’m not too keen on the more colourful pieces or those that tend a little too far towards a child/doll-like image. While it is visually stunning, and can make for beautiful themed photographs, they wouldn’t me my choice for normal attire. 
Lolita fashions, to me, imbue the wearer with traits that don’t match my artistic expression and is indeed a scene unto itself. 
I have found though, that the cybergoth and UK Goth scene in particular have also adopted some of these “cute” fashion statements. 
Bright pink being favoured, as well as handbags made from toys even while the rest of the outfit may be of a more traditional Goth fare. 
This juxtaposition is perhaps a statement that the wearer is not wanting to be seen bending to the conventions of their scene by adopting this idiosyncrasy.'' 
Lady Amaranth


These pieces of Art are only a taste of what The Queen of the Gothic Realm has done you can find all of her work by her and her Photographers at her Website,Her Facebook and why not send her a Tweet.
My beloved Whitby at Whitby Abbey.
