New shoes- Lolita Tartan and Sweet

Ah I think I have a bit of a back log of Blog posts here- with being so busy I forgot about my new shoes,
How that happen?!
Never mind here is a small Blog review on my 1st lolita shoes from Bodyline. I felt super nervous buying from them as the site is rather scary looking in some ways with charts and pop ups of ARE YOU SURE ?!
But I took a deep breath and only spent a small amount in case it all went wrong and ordered my 1st Lolita shoes!


Well the came in one piece and no damage.

Tartan Updates and Adventures

Wow , What on earth is going on? My world suddenly has started turning in a crazy but a good crazy spin.
With us working on a kitchen which has left me stuck in the house for over a week- don't fancy leaving my house unattended with work men and such walking in and out.I been a bit bored so I took part in a few contests,I think am gona have to stop them cause every time I win. That company become interested in me -teehee!

Sort of funny in a way. I think these things do happen for a reason though.
May it be the universe on my side but this year is looking so promising for me!
After talks with a other company which I won a prize from a huge set of Hello Kitty Chinese New Year decorations!
I agreed to being a Guest Kawaii Blogger for them .Which they will announce today!
Its going to be a lot of fun and extra work but this will still be my baby.
I think it will be a more personal Blog- I hope that I can keep it running for you all.

Lockshop Review- Dolly Collection

Few weeks back , Lockshop released a new range called ,The Dolly Collection.
A new range of styled wigs inspired by Dolly Kei or Cult Party Kei Fashion. I have looked at these styles but with any of the wigs from the Lockshop they can be used with any style or personal style you like.
The wig that caught my attention was the Chocolate Cherry, its a very pretty and fade colour a very light Mauve colour that fades to a dark deep Mahogany shade.
There are also a range of other shades to pick from at the online Lockshop store.


So Lets move onto the Review.

Postage and shipping.
There has been new shipping added to the Lockshop, Its gone up a little in price however,This got my order to me super fast,I have never had any issues with shipping from the Lockshop and I got emails from the store owner to keep me up-to date all the time. So even with a Lockshop office relocation , My order was not effected in the slightest!
The wigs are always in high standard presentation.


How she can fold them and wrap them ,in this light paper-I will never know,I would end up ripping it
>.<
So pretty!
Also my order came in a flat shaped box.


The Product

As I said  went for the Dolly style in Chocolate cherry.I normally don't go for a wig with bangs.
The Image to the product are spot on.(depending on your monitor settings of course)
The Wigs is super soft and silky,the colour is so pretty too.
Am glad I picked this shade,The store does advise that you can cut and shape the wigs bangs/fridge.
Due to the wig being flattened to ship out that you man need to reshape it.

When I took my wig out I have its a good shake to bring some life into it and put it on right away. So yes, you do need to style the bangs but I feel like I didn't need to cut them they are the right length for me.
So here s a photo for you all right out the packet.


My photo was taken with a crap photo self app, so it looks a lot lighter here and but you can see even though the wig has been flattened it seems to shake out really well, I will take my styling tools to sort the bangs out.
But still rather impressed !

Here is a slightly better image of the colours.
Kawaii!


I will upload new photos on facebook to get a better image.
*watch this space*

Over all rating

10 out of 10 
Would highly recommend lockshop wigs to any one.
Good prices,postage,shipping and Customer service.
Lockshop have never let me down in product quality  or service.

Till Later

Kawaii Kitty Hunting

So I have been Kawaii Kitty Hunting yet again.
Its an addiction, I say a it is unhealthy but it's only unhealthy for my bank account.
We all love a good bargain when it comes to buying which is why I swear by eBay, like the saying goes.
One man's rubbish is a other man's treasure.
I like to check there every so often to see if I can pick up a few kitty s on the cheep side.
Though I do like to buy them brand new from shops if its a Kitty that I really want.
Here is a few goodies I have got off eBay at a good price.

BJD Project Update

My Project Hujoo Doll has been sitting for a while as I had to wait on its new wig and eyes,They came in the post the other day.I was really happy,the eyes are so pretty, I've not installed them in yet. I need to face her up.I got a pretty wig for the doll that is very close in colour to my own auburn wig from the lock shop.
Here are a few photos.


The eyes look so creepy lol!


The wig in its bag.
When I went to put on the wig its super tight that it kept popping off.I got a rubber band and put it around the dolls head to help keep the wig on.
It seems to work well.
I put the wig on the doll so see how it looks,I keep calling it a doll until I have picked a name for her.



With the wig she looks more doll like,I need to get supplies to do her face up the colour of the wig is making me think of doing a warm complexion for her.

Kawaii Club - January's Package and updates


Wow so much is going on!
Its just a bit crazy with getting a sponsor with a company,handling two blogs,playing in the snow and taking Chibi bean up to toddler group-plus the many other crazy things I do in between!
Not that am complaining-I love this busy-ness and enjoy it.
^_^

As most of you know am a huge fan of the company Keep it Secret who run a subscription of The Kawaii Club,which started back in August (2012).You sign up with them and each month they send out a super Kawaii package to your door and its full of Kawaii goodness.You can find lots of reviews on my Blog about the packages we already have had.

Not only am I going to be showing you what I have got in this months Package but also the new site for The Kawaii club-Yes the Kawaii Club has its own little place on the internet!
You can find it with the following link Here and it even has its own Facebook page is here the Link.
Not only just that but they are offering a new package!

The Ookii package which is coming soon to sign up for.
Its even bigger,Which means more Kawaii things.
Oh and did I mention that am also the face of the Kawaii Club?!
I love the images of Tanuki the mascot packing everything up and his little legs carrying the packed up.
So Cute!
Well then lets look at January's package.



In this month package there is a super sweet note pad,that fans out into a apple,a phone accessories of Mickey mouse that is a handy little thing to use for touch screen phones,a pair of crazy yet Kawaii faced sock's that made me laugh so much and a cute little Miffy Bunny.
Now this little Miffy Bunny may look very sweet and like a toy,however it took me 3 hours to work out what it was,I could hear it rattle inside but I didn't ever think it was a pen- HAHA


Who would have guessed it was a pen?!


Once again,a great package from The Kawaii Club!


Stay Super Kawaii

New Kawaii Shopping

Its been a while since I have posted on my blog about my own kawaii findings,Ive been lucky and picked up alot of kawaii goodies but they have taken a while to get here due to the post and the christmas holidays and some of it coming from over seas.
Feels like am forever waiting on post.

 Do any of you mind the beanie/barret style hat I have with the cat ears? Well I found it again but in black so I went ahead and ordered it as I love those had they are more mature looking and I can get away with wearing it most of time when I have to head out or meet others but dont want to be hugely Kawaii and in the face to attract to much attention.So I got that in black so it can go with my more red shades of my wigs as the creamy ones sort of clashes a bit.

Lock shop wig Review


Hello Kawaii lovers hope you are all looking forward to excitement of Christmas since its so so close *^_^* Yay! I am teehee.
So couple of weeks back the Lock shop had a restock of wigs and some new wigs came in,the wigs were not my sort of thing but the Mermaid in Honey had been restocked and I got my chance to get it ordered.
The mermaid style is really nice,It was the black to purple fade I liked but it was discounted due to it not fading well?

If that makes sense? >.<

Any how I have never been one for the longer types of wigs and also the fact they no longer had the black on in ,I choose to go with the Honey wig,it was the colour that drew me to it more than anything,Also the style instead of curls its more waves,but not like the krimp style that GLW has in Rhapsody which looks a lot like candy floss,I sort of like those but they are soo pricey !
;~;
Before I got right off track here is the review.

Postage and Shipping.
The Lock shop has provided a new faster shipping,which makes it quicker to get  your wig posted to you,however I picked the medium rate for shipping .
I ordered on the 11th and it was dispatched by the 15th and got to me on the 19th,My wig came in a plastic sealed bag and the item was wrapped up in tissue paper and the wig is held in a plastic bag reseal-able,its a idea to keep these bags for storing the wig.

lockshop image


Product.
The wig is covered with a net and the wig cap has been stuffed with paper to keep it from being flatted in the shipping.
It comes with a free wig cap and it all gift wrapped up.
The wig itself,has super soft long wavy fibres,you can run your fingers through the wig and its silky to touch.
This is one of the longer wigs about 70-75cms in total,which reaches just past my bust,
Its light and easy to wear.
The colour is lush,Its like a nice blonde colour,I would say its a very slight bit darker in natural lighting to the photo on the web site but its a very natural looking colour and that's why I really like it.So this didn't bother me in any way.
My wig is the newer style with long bangs,so I with ease swept the bangs to the side,I am not a big fan on bangs but like the option to pick what style I like to make my wig.

Price.
I was happy to pay the price as I know how good the standard of the wig are from the past.

Over all thoughts.With every wig I have bought from the Lock shop I have never been left disappointed,The products are high standard and super quality. 
Its one of my top places to buy my wigs,Sorry GLW you are lower in my list!
Every time I put on my wigs from Lock shop,I get a sense of glamour and feel like a model with them on.
If there was one thing I would want to see would be new darker shades and other darker colour ways,as  much as I enjoy being a Blonde...I like my darker shades too.
so I give the lock shop...
9/10
Only cause I want more darker shades 
\^_^/

So here are a few pics that have been taken *note these photos are with the wig taken straight out of the bag.




Till Later

My Eternal child -BJD

Kawii lovers,how are you all doing,are you all getting excited with Christmas being so near now?
Finally got my BJD Eternal child,Yesterday.
I was super excited but at the same time I wanted to be super careful opening up the packet she came in.
Every thing was neatly wrapped up.
It like a early Christmas gift,I'm waiting on so much in the post its annoying that this time of year the postal service is so slow.
So here are some photos for you all.

The Kawaii club - package 4

Its that time of the month again!
Its the Kawaii Club Insight to what Keep it Secret have sent in their monthly Subscription! 
^.^
Yay!
They are still running high with lots of ideas to send out to use each month and well ....I have a slight confession,I am know 'working' alone side with the Keep it Secret team,ever since they came back from Hong Kong and their hunt of all things Kawaii,they asked if I would be able to take on being their extra set of Kawaii eyes and a helping hand on the facebook page...what do that mean to you? Well it means I can keep you all up to date with the Keep it secret team,but I will not be asking them to tell me what's in the Kawaii club packages,cause that would not make its as fun for me or much of a surprise
-That would just be silly!
But I can say that next months package may be on a very slight delay due to the seasonal holidays and postal service so please bare with the team on this and if your new and want to sign up for the Kawaii club,sign up fast so you don't miss out okay.
So lets have a look at the Kawaii goodies sent for Package number 4.


Here we have the items from the packet,Every month you get a newsletter from the store,and an exclusive discount to a kawaii retailer of some sort,Which is one of my most loved shops Jiji Kiki,*goes off to spend more money aha*
The nom a nom goodies are Pocky yay!
*drools*
An Kawaii lil fella in green who is a tape measure,now I can look super cute when I head out to B&Q for my kawaii DIY needs!
There is also what I want to call an Eejit ( Idiot in Scottish slang) proof Sushi chopstick set.its a small case with chopsticks that can be changed to a fork or spoon by simply clicking them apart and swapping them over,This I found slightly amusing,How many of us think its easy to use chopsticks and then all fall at the 1st attempt....some of you must have had this happen.
Well fear no more and keep this in your bag when you next go to the sushi bar!!
Ill be giving mine a try as I refuse to use my chopsticks made from wood from Japan in-case I stain them  when I have my next Katsu Curry haha .
And last but not least see that cardboard like thing,well I was a but like huh what is that a note book or summit.
o.0
But its not its a super sweet fold up box with sentimental circus decorations all over it,I have been eyeing that stuff up on other Kawaii websites.


It even holds all my Kawaii goodies,not sure but I have a feeling this would make a super cute make-up brush holder when I have eaten my pocky...
I can not wait for next months Kawaii club!
*items may differ in colour shape or form in each package*

so there you have it my kawaii lovers!
Stay super kawaii
