Kawaii lip balms

Winter...its cold,you come in the house or office and the heat dries out your skin and your lush lips,it is so annoying,chapped lips are not Kawaii at all or nice to have, so why not lacker them in some Kawaii lippy gloss and give you a reason to smile through the winter months.
Here is some cuties I have found on the Internet.

Weather with a Kawaii Kitty twist

The weather is a huge topic,no matter where you go,some one comments on the weather and its been so so wet damp and cold here that means only going out if I really have to with chibi bean but the good news is that hubby has passed his driving exam we could take the car some time.
I am awaiting a harsh winter,I have a feeling it may be long snowy and very very cold. It would be nice to get some snow for chibi bean but it brings some problems along with it,but I really like snow.
So I decided to try and make a all weather post with super cute images and weather themed items that I love and are related to hello kitty !
Let the image spam start!

Make up and Why I wear it.



On the facebook group Kawaii Bloggers that I created I saw a blog entry that was really interesting and I wanted to take part and do a similar post about make-up.
Make up, not every one can leave the house with out make up on,some like to use it to express themselves too,I have seen some wonder make up skills online and to me make up can help enhance the beauty one already has.
I love make up but I can go for days with out any on at all,maybe its cause Im a stay at home mummy and it dont bother me even if I have to run out to the shop for milk ect.

So to start off, you've got to upload a photo of your face with only one side of your make-done, the other side has to be natural. Editing your natural beauty side is not allowed!

Decoden Kawaii nails

So a few posts back I spoke of nail art and Deco den nails,I did in the end get some  4 packs of them (one is being sent out atm),I love how Kawaii they looked on the models and photos and its very in over in Japan in lots of other fashions not just aimed at one style.
I got them rather cheep spending no more that £3 on a set of 24 pre made deco den fake nails.
I got them from eBay I didn't have much hope for them being anything to amazing.
Here is a photo of them.

Origami lets make it cute.

Origami is the art from Japan of paper folding, ori meaning "folding", and kami meaning "paper" (kami changes to gami due to rendaku).I have been admiring the art since a small girl and only this year bought a starter kit to learn to make some.I through myself in the deep end and attempted advanced projects...My hope faded as my cranes looked like mush and my flowers looked like paper aeroplanes.

However like the Amigurumi,I kept trying over and over with scrap paper,then like the Amigurumi it clicked in place(maybe I was from Japan in my before life.....)Eventually I made a crane and was overjoyed after that,I went looking on the net for more things to make.

Kawaii Nail Art

So a few of you wanted to know how I do my nails.I wear fake nails from time to time,As a mummy and house wife when I am not on the hunt of Kawaii or bring you Kawaii. 
Its all chores and hard work and my nails don't get the love and attention to stay long,so I keep em short even though I love long nails and more so if they are super Kawaii!

Barry M review

I spoke of Barry M cosmetics before,the reason i like these products is cause they are NOT tested on animals  like other brands so I don't feel so guilty,I like other brands too because the good but really that is not the best excuse...so maybe I could look into swapping all my stuff to BarryM.
So I put in a order via the web site,I do have a local store that sells Barry M but they never seem to restock often so I bought from the web site here.

Wig lockshop review

I have been selling off my other wigs that I no longer wear due to them having bangs/fringes.
I have been using that money to save for a few things one being a camera. ^^
but I had enough to get a new wig.I returned to the lock shop for my wig,I have got my eye on a few know!

This is one of the newest wig that is very long and is hand dyed at the ends its stunning and of course looks lush on the model.I like the style and the colours of this wig,like all the wigs in the lock shop there is a selection of colours that  look like colours that you could get by going to to a salon.

In the name of the Moon with Pretty Hell

So am a big sailor moon fan and when I saw Pretty Hells newest t-shirt design I just had to get my paws on the most Kawaii sailor moon t-shirt ever!
This is my 2nd t-shirt,they are made from a soft cotton fabric and the images are transfers so you will have to take care to look after you t-shirts for them to last at the fullest,You will find the instructions in with any of your order,I bought mine via esty as is was  more easy to spend my money.
Ha ha...

Kiss Kiss Chu

It may be cause I am wearing some lip stick to day,but  felt the need to to Blog about cute lippy.
Personally I love lots of bright red pillar box shades,but I also like to venture out and try other colours too.
-its fun trying new looks too-
I think its a bit of trail and error when it comes to lip sticks and make up,but as a nice simple rule to keep in mind if your wanting to show off the eyes then use a light/pale colour on the lips and the other way round bright lips and natural/light eyes.Some times it can be done with both or look a bit well daft (silly) like.

I like the cute doll like look with make up,so when i use that sort of make up style I will pick pale nude shade or rose like pinks with a hint of shimmer .I like to add a clear gloss over the shade to make it look fresh and sweet looking and or doll like.

Keeping warm and Kawaii~Hints and tips

Keeping Warm is a number warm thing for me as I happen to feel the cold,Even though every one has only t-shirts on,I am frozen and like to wrap up warm,May it be I wear a extra t-shirt or a few more layers.

Maybe because I am in Scotland?!...errrmm...You would think that I would be used to it since I lived here all my life.
Even today I am feeling a chill around me.

 T^T
So here are a few hints and tips with keeping warm but still Kawaii for this winter!


Hints and Kawaii Tips for the winter!

Jumpers! Big thick cosy jumpers are in the knitwear selections,
There are 2 kinds pain ones or ones with detail.

Picking the detailed ones with cute images on them are super cute and easy to wear with out thinking to much about them by wearing some nice jeans.Currently is all about skulls and crosses with fashion at this time so its proven hard to get some cute images on jumpers right now.


New Look Love heart Jumper

The other is plain but wear some printed Jeans or cute leggings to make a Kawaii outfit and keep warm at the same time .Choosing the idea of a plain jumper makes this a big easy as there is lots of prints on leggings,tights and jeans that can make the outfit cute.Most of the colours at this current season are all dark looking too but there is a small handful of lighter colours.


New Look,Sweet cute Bow Jumper

The other ways of keeping warm and Kawaii is playing about with Printed Leggings and Tights though there is not as many printed tights as much as there is overseas its work going on ebay to have a look for some,These can brighten up any outfit that is plain and warm and by there is thicker leggings out for the warmer months too.
A other idea is even though its not quite snowing over here it means you can still use the shorts that you had this summer (or Lack of Summer in Scotlands case).
By wearing some think tights to keep your legs warm!
Right know in the shops there is a range of coloured tights (again Dark colours) that are fab for wearing with shorts,and also with all this seasons colours and prints you can still pick up a new pair of shorts in October!
Footwear can be cute too and thank's to the popularity of Festivals Shops have caught on with the Wellies boots.
That's Right you can know get super cute Welly boots ones with bows,lace and prints,My own are poka dots and I make sure I have some nice thick (Kawaii )Socks to keep my feet warm too.




There is lots of cute welly boots.
^_^


My current OOTD are mostly Jeans with thick jumpers and cute accessories,or its ifs mild I wear my cute shorts tights and tops.But its hard work keeping Kawaii and warm at the same time.
Why not look into some Kawaii and Adorable Lolita Jackets and even Anime plush slippers too.
And if all else fails simply buy a kawaii fleece blanket and wrap up cosy with a few of your most loved Plushies  like Hello Kitty of course and get a nice cup or warm hot chocolate with mini marshmallows 
^^ 
Stay super Kawaii

Kawaii Halloween ideas and sugestions

Hello My Kawaii Lovers
Halloween is drawing near,I love the fun around Halloween,but its more than just about the trick and treats to me. *nods nods*



Halloween is the time were the links to the living world and the other side are lifted and thinned out.

The idea of us dressing up as zombies ghosts and witches and other scary things was to confuse the departed  and lost souls that walked with the living on Halloween night. That they could not tell who was who, to spook and scare on this long dark creepy night.
Jack 'o lanterns made from Turnips and Pumpkins craved with faces sat out side homes to scare away evil spirits and Candles burned to guide the departed loved ones back to the other side safely.

I love the darkness of Halloween but I also find that us Kawaii Lovers like to make it very Creepy yet very cute.

Dressing up is one way to do it,You have a range of Kawaii Ideas to pick from Hello Kitty outfits to becoming a Princess from Disney though how that may confuse the walking dead beats me 
@.@'



Decorations have changed a lot  you can know get some really creepy real looking ones and then the more light hearted fun and child likes ones.Pumpkin Carving also seems to become a art and contest in some places too!




Some like to go crazy and Dress up and put alot of work into there Halloween outfits,some look so real and some are so scary and others are utterly KAWAII!
Others may theme their day to day outfit a bit more spooky than normal than dress up.
As you all know I'm dressing up as a Fairy and Chibi bean is dressing up as a Witch.
^_^




Here are some cute ideas for you all!
Why not look for cute spooky t-shirts that tend to come out at this time of year.
Look at Halloween themed Jewellery that most small businesses like to bring out at this time of year.
Look at clip in colours for your hair likes of orange green and purple for some fun and check out some nice wigs too.
Dress up your house with cute looking spooky decorations.
Try making your own ones too.
Or why not be a bit more daring and Cosplay from a anime that's related to Halloween.
Your pick how you want to celebrate Halloween but most of all Have lots of fun!
I will post up photos of my outfit and decorations for you soon.
Look out for more of my Halloween Posts!
Stay super Kawaii

Its all about Kawaii!

Hi~Hi Kawaii Lovers,I hope you are all well and keeping super cute!
Myself  I have  been looking for a cute necklace with ''Kawaii '' on it while I have been x-mas shopping,and
I am soo bad for saying Kawaii out loud in places.Unless you know what it means I get lots of Funny looks in shops and the kids sections in too.
So I thought it was only fitting to get a necklace because I love ''Kawaii''.
I spoke to a few companies about a custom necklace but they were all to busy I all most gave up but House of Wonder land came to save me!
I was so happy,though it took a while to get the right fount to work with the word 'Kawaii' so it looked like 'Kawaii' rather than 'KawaII' and then asked if I could have a purple shade and left the rest up to the magical lady at the House of wonderland and OMG!



ITS STUNNING!
I also got the 'Harajuku' necklace a week before,cause I thought well if I dont get a Kawaii one I will have Harajuku,Hanging by my heart.(A place I so want to visit!)
So here is a few Photos ^^



My Harajuku Necklace

My outfit run down
Hat from Dobbie's that I revamped with felt hearts,That I sewn on.
Top from  Cute Japanese Fashion
Shorts Primark
Tights New Look
Lock Shop wig


Other outfit Run down.
Kawaii Necklace.
Unicorn top from TKmaxx
Lock shop wig.

So We are nearing the end of the month,I have been selling off some of my Lolita and my Wigs as I really do not like ones with Bangs/Fridges and Lolita is not practical for me,Even though,I do adore it all .
TT^TT
I also need the money to be put towards a new camera and for chibi bean's xmas and birthday.
I have started my shopping list and can say I have one or 2 things ticked off.
Also I have got finally pieced all y fairy Halloween outfit out!
Yay!
So I am looking forward to getting lots of photos of it all for you all to see!

Till Later
Stay super Kawaii!

Kawaii Club -Package 2

The Kawaii Club,I love the Kawaii Club run by Keep it secret,Keep it Kawaii.
I have been very happy with my monthly dose of Kawaii Goodies.
This month I was over the moon with my package.
It came on Tuesday Morning just as I was heading out to the local shop for a stock up on Milky buttons...
(yes its how I roll!)
So I put it to one side even though I wanted to rip it open there and then!
Once I got back with my milky button supplies,I sat down to over dose in Kawaii-ness!

This months bunch of goodies was,
A bean toy key chain,Where you press the bean pod to pop out the happy face beans,Great for passing the time but also for stress release too. I attached mine to my keys,Also chibi bean thinks they are magic!

Also there is  Kawaii Tin of Rilakuma and Co,great for storing your kawaii bits and bobs,In my case...I'm using mine for  storing my eyelashes and stick on Gems
(lol...What? I think its a great way to store eyelashes that you plan to clean and reuse,That way I'm not going to lose em or my gems!)
^__^









Also taking of Weekend bags and or Holiday cases why not attach the super cute the Doremon Suit Case tag.That way you will not only be able to tell who case is who when you are at the airport or waiting on your cases but you can be super kawaii while you travel!
Last but not least is the Hello Kitty head phones (only available in Japan which my sources at keep it secret HQ have reviled.) This is a plus in my book! As you all know how much I adore Hello Kitty but also I have a Hello Kitty ipod cover...BUT! Not only that,
If you have been a member of the Kawaii Club from the start (this is the 3rd delivery of Kawaii-goodies) You would have also got the Hello Kitty Cable wind up wire clip.
So I am 100% Hello Kitty kit out with my itunes and ipod as well as adding to my Hello Kitty collection.

Also in the package before this one (the 2nd package) you would have received a Chi the Cat compact mirror.
I want to say that I do use mine all the time!
Believe it or not,I really do.
*^__^*
When I am applying my eye make up and lashes,It sits on my dressing table with all my make up and its a handy and great little cutie that no only makes me smile seeing its expression but great for applying my lashes as you ladies will all be aware they are rather tricky to get on at the best of times.

So you want to stay Super Kawaii then Team up with me and join The Kawaii Club Here.
And check out the shop while you are at it,Its where I got my Hello Kitty Glasses that I wear.
You can also keep up to date with the Keep it secret Page on Facebook.
Also in November there is going to be a Tartan Kawaii Take over on the page where yours truly will be keeping a eye out on the page and acting as your moderator while the team head out on operation: 'Bring back Kawaii' for us all!

So Stay super Kawaii
