Enji Review!

Hey every cutie! I hope every one has enjoyed my my past blog posts of interviews. Today  I have a review to share with you . Last week I got my 1st ordered from Enji an online store who sell some Japanese inspired Jewellery, who also collaborate in the past with (my idol) Rainbowholic! I  have admired this stuftf for long and finally the pieces are back in stock that I wanted. So I wanted to share this review with you all.



To Order from Enji you will find her online store here
Enji on storenvy. Some retailers also stock her stuff such as Kawaii NOLA *waves* It was actually Kawaii Nola's instagram who were showing off the products from Enji that pulled me into making my own order!
Am so happy to be a proud owner of these pieces and I may have ordered a (Rainbowholic x Enji ) more for this month. huhuh!



As you can see, I order 2 pieces that came to $27 dollers which is about  £16 something. I got the '' KyAAA'' long chain necklace and the 'Suki' (Love) in Japanese earring. (Note the earrings come as a single item NOT a pair.) I picked the one with the black and red , it was a hard choice as I wanted the more colourful one but I wanted one that I could wear with any outfit and I find black is the best option.
My order was placed on the 9th of the month and it came about 2weeks or so after . I can not mind the exact date but it was rought 2-3weeks which I expected and was happy for the wait. Well they are coming all the way from Indonesia! 


When I got my order it came in a box shaped parcel unforntailly - this had been battered about in the post . *tear* I was a bit worried about the products because acrylic can snap . However all the products were wrapped inside and nothing was damaged. no wonder because it took me like 20mins to get into the securely wrapped items! haha! After 20mins of tackling the bubble wrap I got to my items.
 The items are lovely very bold looking and in a way very simple colour are in black in text ''KyAA'' Which is a word often anime characters often say when in shock - its quite cute! I guess its like the word for '?!?!'  it is placed one a  big white speech bubble and on a very long black chain. I have only tried it on to see how long it is- hehe.I'ts so cool!

The earring is made up of 3 pieces of acrylic the Japnese is Suki which means love the top and bottom pieces are the Kanji and the middle piece is a cute pair of red hot lips! I love the red lips heehee, it is also a dangle style of earing and its adorable . With the fact is acrylic its light weight so, no pulling on my ears! yay!



I have worn it many times already it looks so cool on and many folks have commented on how cool it is and wanted to know what it means - its a pleasure to tell others it means love- my love for Japan. My order also came with a cute business card from the store. The best thing and maybe why I love this shop a lot is the fact the owner has a keen love for Japan, I have spoken to her in the past and she is very polite and very lovely. Also when my items where posted she found out the items shipping was less and even refunded me the difference- which I thought was extremely thoughtful and honest, as some folks or companies would not bother and say nothing! That really tugged a string on my heart and made me a retuning and supporting customer more so thanks to the great customer care, great products and service.

Am really looking forward to what is in store for Enji and its Products so please do give them some support by checking em out and show them some love!

Kawaii Club Upgrade!


Hey every cutie well I got my Kawaii Club Subscription this month but I have finally UPGRADED to the bigger Parcel, why?! Well Keep it Secret who run the Kawaii Club are no longer doing the Chibi (Smaller) Parcel , so you can no longer subscirbe to it any more However there is new Ookii Subscriptions you can sign up for ans save some money with the new selections. YAY!So I will be review my very own Ookii Parcel! YAY!


The Parcel is actully a super cute box that has the most kawaii label of their company mascot Tanuki. Its a fair size of a box to fill with goods. When you open it you will find your newsletter which will have a list of your Kawaii products for the month- This month was a food theme. Yummy!
You will also find your products are lovingly wrapped in a Kawaii coloured gift paper which adds to the cuteness of presentation! Kawaii-Check out the photos of the parcel and presentation .

So lets have a look into the goodies this month, Well the 1st thing I spied was the DIY grape soda, its a soda drink you make yourself. In Japan there is a lot of these DIY candy snacks they are all very cute and often miniature size in the tools you get to make the candy/drinks.

I and Chibi made the drink together,it had a very strong flavour and was a shade of purple and the mixture fluffed up like a milkshake.It was very yummy , I think that Chibi bean enjoyed the making part an the taste too.

There was a sheet of cute looking stickers again food themed they were rather enchanting with the food having faces on them, also they were more like plastic/stronger stickers than the ones that you can buy that often rip when you pull them off the backing sheets- which is a bonus, no stickers will be wasted! And these will be treat to put on my pen pal letters - am sure that they will bring a smile to my pen pal friends.

Also to be found was a lollipop shaped item , which after reading the newsletter it was a face wash towel warped as a cute swirl lollipop, which was so cute and something you could keep to take away for travels and such. It would be so cute to pack it way and then have a piece of cute with you when away from home.

The other food item was a box of pocky...but it was not real pocky to eat (tear) But it was a box full of pencils that were shaped and wrapped as Pocky! How Cute! - Though I think I might get so hungry when I use them for drawing and doodles I better no start chewing on them , thinking that they are real!!

Also there was a phone charm in the parcel- one of those ones are super sqwishy. I think of them as stress charms but on a cute level , even though its a charm for your phone you could attach it to your keys and even your bag- Mine was a character from Sanrio, Kerokerokeroppi (The cute little frog btw!)

So thats the round up on this months Kawaii Parcel and am soo happy to get much more in my subscription and pleased that I have upgraded.

Kawaii Interview time with Kelsey (Kimono time)

Its time for a other Kawaii interview with some one I find is very interesting and very kawaii! Kimono time  who is a Jpop dancer on youtube! so lets get on with the interview!


Hello , Hi there Kelsey, please do tell us more about yourself!
Hello, my name's Kelsey! I'm a teeny arpakasso obsessed hobbit from yorkshire and I love dressing and being inspired by jfashion!http://www.youtube.com/kimonotime
N'aww lol to cute , First off when and how did you get into Kawaii culture?

I think it would probably be after I saw Gwen Stefani and I looked up Harajuku girls. I became obsessed with the fashion and I'd look at pictures on google all the time, wishing I could look as cool!
What did you find that appealed to you in Kawaii Culture?
It's just so different to anything I see in my everyday life. I'm quite an energetic and expressive person and I feel like the kawaii culture and it's fashion really fits my personality.
What do Kawaii mean to you?
To me, it means embracing yourself fully and not being afraid to be who you want to be! Sometimes it can mean cute, but there are so many ways a person can be cute! 

I love your dress sense,(its super kawaii) and  your style can you tell us more about it and do you have any tips on how to achieve it ?

Thank you so much! ^^
I never really know what my style truly is. I just wear what I want. But there always seems to be a hint of cute in there somewhere! I'm really inspired by the street style in harajuku and japan, and I like to mix it with some U.K styles sometimes too. .To get inspiration, I look on tumblr, or instagram at street snaps. 
I love mixing styles
And I really enjoy expressing things I love through my outfits, for example pizza!

Wow cool, 
What styles would you say influence you?
Mostly street styles, but I love pretty pastel styles like fairy kei too.
Where do you like to shop for your style?
I get a lot of stuff online, mainly ebay, I also love thrifting and charity shopping. A lot of my clothes are from the U.K high street too.

How do others react to your Kawaii styles?
Sometimes I get some stares in public, but I don't really mind. I used to be scared because I thought everyone was making fun of me, but actually, I'm surprised because every person that has spoken to me in public are always interested and ask me where I get my things from. I especially love wearing kawaii styles in London! I see people smiling, and whether it's a mocking smile or a genuine smile, it makes me feel happy that my style made someone smile that day!

I have a few friends that are into the same style as me but my other friends and my family are used to it, since I've always been a little bit out there. My mum is always asking me if she's kawaii!
Wow that is very interesting!
Since being into Kawaii Culture would you say the way you do some things likes of your hair and make up ,Have they changed over time?

Yes! I love experimenting with my look, it's never the same! I'm obsessed with wigs too, they can give you a completely different look!
Do you have any 'can not live with out' items that are Kawaii?
My platform shoes and my wigs! Also, bows, I couldn't live without bows!

What kind or anime or manga do you like and what would you recommend to some one?
I'm not actually a huge anime or manga fan. But one of my favourites is Chobits because she's a cute android, who doesn't like cute androids?? It's such a heart warming story!

What kind of Music do you listen too?

I listen to lots of Jpop and Kpop. My favourite artists are Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and 2NE1. But I also love pop music in the U.K and U.S too. I love pop music!
Who would you pick Sanrio or San X its a tough question ^^!

I think it has to be San X ! All the characters look so cuddly!
Photo by *Sparkles/Beckii

And who would you say is your most loved Kawaii Character?

I love the Mameshiba's! I wish they were real things!
*^* me too!!
What has been your most creative project to date?

I entered a harajuku fashion show, and I decided to make a cord from a theme. I chose Monsters VS Aliens theme!
Do you have a Kawaii Idol or some one that inspires you?
Yes, I have quite a few!
But some of them are Kyary Pamyu Pamyu( I can't wait to see her in London!), Ayumi Seto, Kozue Akimoto and I love the instagrammer Andiautumn.
Do you have a Kawaii Idol or some one that inspires you?
Yes, I have quite a few!
But some of them are Kyary Pamyu Pamyu( I can't wait to see her in London!), Ayumi Seto, Kozue Akimoto and I love the instagrammer Andiautumn.


If you could go anywhere for a day where would you go and what would you do?
This is very obvious, but I've never been to Japan, so I would take a huge empty suitcase with me and go crazy in Harajuku.

Hehe - okay am your very own Kawaii fairy and I can grant you 3 wishes! What can I make happen for you?!
Ok, I'm going to keep them kawaii related~
1. A trip to Japan with all my friends!
2. That I could meet Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and perform with her on stage (I'm a huge fan!)
3. That is was the law that everytime someone woke up an arpakasso would appear and tell you when you woke up how kawaii you are and shout words of encouragement, to make you happy for the day! ~

Thank you so much for the interview! 
Kelsey ~<3 <3

(I added all the images in the attachments ^^)

This was the cutest interview I've ever had haha! Thank you!

Kawaii Interview Time with Misadoll

Its Kawaii interview time every cutie! Today we have a very cute person to interview and they have so much to share with us that we are going to jump right into the interview! huhuh!
so lets get to it - Yattaa!

Hi , Hi please do tell us more about yourself!

 Hello!~ My name is Misadoll! I'm 23, and I work in video games production. Aside from that, I own a Japanese-inspired fashion brand Pastel Doll (https://www.facebook.com/pasteldoll666?fref=ts)  with my friends Kaidoll and Celestiadoll. I love Lolita Fashion, and I also really like Creepy Cute styles. 

Can you remember when and how did you get into Kawaii culture?

 Since I was a little girl, I've played video games, so I think those were the gateway into understanding more about Japanese culture and being interested in Japan generally. I started having an interest in anime, and later on in my life I started taking Japanese classes. After visiting Japan when I was 20, I was really hooked <3 It's a beautiful place and it's full of kawaii culture!

Hehe so your a Kawaii addict too?!
What did you find that appealed to you in Kawaii Culture?

copyright Pastel Doll
I like sweet things, and I think Lolita fashion is very elegant and beautiful. For me, it seems like kawaii culture builds communities of people with similar interests, and I think it's that sense of community that appeals to be me too.

Can you tell us what do word Kawaii mean to you ?

 Kawaii is something girls in Japan say A LOT. Kawaii is just the general essence of all things cute! I think it can apply to many different fashion styles, pieces of art, clothing and people! It's nice to hear such a positive word has become so popular <3

I love the sound of the word Kawaii myself , can you tell us what Kawaii styles would you say influence you and what would you say is your style?

I can never really settle on a particular style, and so I've got a mishmash of many subcultures in my wardrobe! My main fashion type is Lolita fashion and more recently, the Creepy Cute/Pastel Goth style. I also really like Fairy Kei, and have a fondness for Gyaru because it's a more grown up fashion. I love Ma*rs!

Where do you like to shop for your kawaii styles? ^^

 I usually buy a bunch of clothes in Japan and bring them back - Harajuku and Shibuya are amazing for cute fashion! I like Angelic Pretty for Lolita Fashion, and I own some items from GLAD NEWS and Ma*rs. And since I own Pastel Doll, I get all of my wigs from our store! <3 

WOAAH! that is so cool! Also I heard you won a model contest lately can you tell us more about it?

I did! It was all very exciting! Tokyo Royale is a store in Manchester specialising in alternative fashion, and they also have a range of Japan-inspired fashions. They hosted a modelling competition to be the face of the  brand, and to my surprise I won the contest! I was over the moon and very shocked, haha. I had a photoshoot with them not so long ago and it was really fun, I got to try on all sorts of cute clothes, and the other girls were really lovely too.

Sounds great congratulations , Can you give us a insight to what other Kawaii projects do you have planned?

For now my focus will be on Pastel Doll, I'm really excited to launch the store with my friends and I'm hoping people will really like our products. I want to bring this element of kawaii style to the UK and across the world! I love wigs, and I think ours are something new so I can't wait to show them to everyone. Stay tuned as we'll be launching sometime in the coming months!

OH can not wait to see how that works out for you *Excited* .Since being into Kawaii Culture would you say the way you do some things likes of your hair and make up ,Have they changed over time?

 I would say so definitely! Originally, I was a goth and only wore black, so becoming interesting in kawaii fashion has definitely changed my style a lot! My hair is very long at the moment with milky tea highlights, but over the years I've had many unnatural styles. My make-up is a little more subtle now for daily wear but when I'm going out or doing a cosplay, I bring out the circle lenses and lashes! 

Ah okay then do you have any 'can not live with out' items that are Kawaii?

 I have to say, I'm very fond of my pink Pokemon lunchbox from the Pokemon Centre in Japan. It's a little bento box, so I use it to take my lunch to work, haha. That's an example of a kawaii item I use everyday!

Kawaii- So where do you shop for Kawaii goodies?

 For goodies such as sweeties I usually head to Tofu Cute! Also, Artbox have a lot of cute things. I also really love Paperchase which is hugely popular at the minute and they have lots of cute stationary. 

What kind or anime or manga do you like and what would you recommend to some one?

 I'm hugely into girly anime, so I like romance stories. I really like Skip Beat because it's fun, dramatic, and the main character seems really relatable and realistic! I also like Stepping on Roses which is a lot more fantasy based. Love Com is great because it's really funny! And finally I'd recommend Peach Girl because it's a classic love triangle story!

Can you tell us music what do you listen too?

I used to do a radio show called Moshi Moshi and it specialised in J-pop and K-pop so those are my favourites! I like all the typical bands like 2NE1, Girls Generation, 4minute, Perfume, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu etc. I listen pretty much exclusively to these bands but I do like some other artists like Pretty Reckless and Porcelain Black.

Wow thats a lot of great music! Who would you pick Sanrio or San X ?

Sanrio <3 I went to Sanrioland, and omg the sparkles!

Haha!Am super jealous Sanrioland
!!! Okay And who would you say is your most loved Kawaii Character?

I'm gonna go classic here and say Hello Kitty. I own so many kitty items it's unreal (I doubt as much as you thought Tartan!) * Tartan Laughs out loud and grins*
 My favourite character would probably be Sonic x Hello Kitty which is a plush character I won in Segaland. 

Do you have a Kawaii Idol or some one that inspires you?

 I think Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is amazing because she's built up a whole unique style and brand for herself. I also really love Sugarpill, because the way they built up their business is very inspiring especially for us as we are starting a business too! 

If you could go anywhere for a day where would you go and what would you do?

Well I would kinda have to say somewhere crazy, like the moon. My friend Celestiadoll loves space, so maybe she'd want to come too! 

Am your KAwaii Fairy and I want to know what would you wish for if you were granted 3 Kawaii wishes?

-To spread kawaii culture around the world! 
-For my kawaii business to do well <3 
-And of course, world peace! I couldn't leave that one out.

Thank you so much for taking the time to interview me! <3

Well thats our Kawaii interview wrapped up with Misadoll! Check out the links below for the store and more about Misadoll and her

Kawaii Interview time with Raine


Hello every cutie! Hope you are all well! Today I have a Kawaii interview with the lovely Raine!

I do apologise my blog has been rather silent due to not being able to upload much , as my laptop is away for repairs! 
Am also struggling to see and use this machine and I am left here hoping that my lap top will be ready sometime next week *sobs* I really miss it! So until I will try and get as many as my back logged post up. Now let's get on  with the interview!
Today we are interviewing Raine, who likes Manba Japanese styles. Lets get on with the interview!



So Raine ,First off when and how did you get into Kawaii culture?

It was when I moved to America when I was younger. That was when I discovered anime/manga. The first friend I made through my parents was into the Japanese culture. She introduced me to kawaii anime/manga. I was introduced to cute characters as well as cute fashions. From there I looked at magazines, discovered more styles. It wasn't until I moved back to London that I learnt about other subcategories of kawaii style. I investigated and tried out various styles until I found out where I stood.


What did you find are the things that appealed to you in Kawaii Culture?
The fun colours, the various fun styles. You could combine so many accessories and different clothing styles. With the Kawaii Culture you're unlimited to what you want to do. There really isn't so much of a what you can/can't do which is great. To be a part of the kawaii culture is such an enjoyment unlike being part of a different style culture. 

Ah I see!, So what does Kawaii mean to you?
Being Kawaii to me means enjoying the cute side of life. It's bringing out your inner child, not being afraid of them. Life doesn't have to be black and white. It's about enjoying as you only have one life to live. Kawaii is something that everyone can do and experience. That's what Kawaii means to me. 


Great! Do you have a fashion that you would say is Kawaii and can you tell us a bit more about it?
My fashion that I consider to be Kawaii is Manba. It's got the brightness and fun qualities of being a kawaii fan. The pastel colours that could belong with fairy kei along with bright neon colours. Two of my favourite types of colours. There is also the vibrant makeup that goes along with the style that helps you to stand out even more against the crowd. I think being Manba means that you have a lot more fun and greatly express your kawaii self. 

WOW, ooh okay and What advise would you give readers to finding their styles?
Explore! Don't just find one style and stick to it, you've got to keep an open mind. If all of a sudden you find that the style you've been trying out isn't for you then don't give up. Move onto something else. Experiment as well. Take bits from one style and see if you can mix it up with the new style you're trying out.  I would also say don't go buying everything at once. 
When you're trying to find your style, it doesn't mean you have to buy an excessive amount. It could be that the style you tried didn't work and then you've just spent lots of money on clothes you wouldn't wear again. Maybe about 5 clothes items would be a good start. A good amount to also mix and match to see what works for you.  

Can you tell us where do you shop for your style and is it easy to find things?
For my style I usually go to thrift stores and see what I can find. With some of my old clothes, I sometimes alter them and create something new. Camden Town is one of my favourite places to look for clothes and accessories to add to my collection. I also buy my stuff from online such as ebay, etsy and storeenvy.

What brands of make up do you like?
I'm not a fan of super heavy foundations and such so I stick to light brands such as Natural from Boots and Bare Minerals. I don't like spending a ridiculous amount on cosmetics if I can help it so I usually go for store brands. 

What styles would you say influence you?
Manba and Fairy Kei. I like to try to mix the two of them together when I can.  

How do you feel when wearing your outfits or kawaii things?
Relaxed and happy. I feel so comfortable and myself. I don't have to worry about how others see me as I know how I feel when I have my outfit and kawaii items around and that's what's important to me. 


Since being into Kawaii Culture would you say the way you do some things like your hair and make up, have they changed over time?
My makeup style has changed a lot but hair wise the only thing to change has been my hair colour. I have also gotten a preference to wearing wigs rather than dealing with my actual hair. 

Heehee, What kind or anime or manga do you like and what would you recommend to some one?  
I'm really open minded when it comes to anime/manga. I do however prefer ones with a bit of sci-fi, action/adventure in them. I usually always suggest Gundam Wing as a anime to watch for those who love sci-fi.

Do you like any Japanese Cute Music what do you listen too?
Don't listen to much cute music. If I do it's usually the openings or closing themes to animes. The only Cute Japanese artist I can say that I listen to Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. 

The tought question here but who would you pick Sanrio or San X ?
San X. I've only really started to love the Sanrio characters. When I was first introduced to the Kawaii world my friend introduced me to San X first. I would buy everything with San X characters on it especially a lot of stationary for school. 

And who would you say is your most loved Kawaii Character?
That's difficult to say because I don't have just one. I love Sanrio, San X and another of my favourites is Disney. I can't just have the one most loved as I love them all equally. If I had to choose one however...I would definitely go with Disney's Stitch. 

Have you made or created your own Kawaii inspired stuff? (eg cosplay, outfit, deco-den ect ect .)
Nails and cute little figures made out of polymer clay. I stopped because I'm not a very D.I.Y person though I am getting into it a little more. I have plans to make my own cosplays and one day I would like to create my own outfit. 

Awesome ,Where is your most fave place to shop for Kawaii ?
YesStyle.com That site has so many kawaii clothes and accessories that I wish I could have. From time to time I like to buy items from there. All of which I can incorporate to my style.

Do you have a Kawaii Idol or some one that inspires you?

I have several. For the fairy kei style I would say that Fetsu-Chan is my all time favourite person to look to for inspiration. She's so cute and her style is just too amazing to describe. I love the fact that she's so creative when it come to mix and match. 

For the Manba style I look to the old group Angeleek. Each member of that group has their own interpretation of the style and it's great to see that even though they all share the same style the all somehow make it suitable for themselves in their own way.

And finally if I was a kawaii fairy and could grant you 3 wishes -What would you wish for ?

My 3 Kawaii wishes would be for me to be able to incorporate my kawaii style into everything that I do. That I would be able to be more Kawaii D.I.Y. and to make loads of Kawaii styled friends.  


Hehe! 


Thank you so much for your time and taking part in the interview Raine! It was great to know more about you and your own kawaii style!

Kawaii DIY Valentines Ideas Felt Hearts


Hello Cuties - again here is my last post for the run up for Valentines day! 
I will be doing all my backing and chocolate making on the Thursday so its all freshly made for the 14th to give to my Valentines. I wonder if I will get many cards ( Heehee!!) Yea right! I will  Lucky to even get a card! (n_n)But this post again like the last one can be altered to what you want to use it for!
Today let's make Hanging felt hearts!
(sorry for the crappy Phone photos I cant load up any Camera ones at this time.)
Yay..What you will need is the following.
Sheets of Red felt
A heart template or shape to use as a guide
A pencil to trace the shape on the felt.
A needle
Thread
Scissors.

To start with you should get your heart shaper template and trace around it on the red felts. You do not need to use heart as you can pick any shape you want but cause is near Valentines day I picked hearts. Also they are very cute too. You can pick any colour of felts for your hearts as well so don't let what I have picked limit you in any way. Once you have traced out your shapes you will need the scissors for cutting them out.

Once you have cut them all out I made about 12 single hearts and paired them up to make them double sided, *DON'T throw away any scrap felt!* I paired up the hearts with the pencil showing on the outside and then took my thread and needle and started to do a simple stitch around them but not completely sewing them up, as I then turned them inside out.
Using the left over felts I used that to stuff the insides of my hearts making them into tiny plushie hearts. Make sure you cut up the extra felts into smaller pieces so they fit into the hearts hehe. Then finish sewing up the cute little heart. (^.~) Kawaii!

Do this with your paired up hearts and you should then have 6 plushie cute hearts. Know with the thread you will want to cut a long piece for string them all together as well. So make sure you have plenty thread.Starting with the first heart string it from the top of the heart in the middle and then thread on the second one from the bottom and the top. That way it will swing about less when hung. And then do the same with the rest till you get to the last one. Once at the top make sure to loop your thread and then its ready for hanging up!

Like I already said you don't have to stick with my guidelines of shape and colour. Why not make some stars or Clouds or what about rainbow coloured felts. Also you could add any sort of extra decorations for extra Kawaii fun!

I cant wait to see every one making Kawaii valentines ideas!
Feel free to send me pictures of your Kawaii Valentines DIY's I bet they are super cute.

Till next time!
<3 Stay cute.

Kawaii Valentines chocolate Ideas

Hello Cuties, Here is a second post for you all (this give us a small brake from doing interviews all the time!) I just wanted to say that I am working on a tiny laptop so my post will be a bit short and to the point.I do hope you enjoy this kawaii idea and give this a try (^_^)
This Kawaii DIY Idea is super cute and its also super yummy, you dont even need to wait till valentines day to makes these and you can make them as gifts for others too!
They are also super easy to make and super cute.



You will need, Some Chocolate for melting.I used both white and milk chocolate
2 bowls for each Chocolate and spoons.
Mould shapes eg, hearts.
Candy foils for wrapping and a cute food bag to gift them in.



Melt your Chocolate in the Mirco-wave (its easy this way to check every 10 sec while it melts to stop it from burning!) >w< huhuh I found out the hard way, burnt chocolate is not nice nyaa!
^_^;
Stir the chocolate well, and put the melted chocolate into its moulds, Why not add some Silver candy balls or sprinkles for extra kawaii-ness before you add the chocolate to the moulds. (these will in effect appear on the top of your mould shapes when ready.) Once all the chocolate is in all the moulds pop it in the fridge! Check them after a while and once they are solid again its time to pop them out the moulds and get ready to add any extra decorations and wrap them.


And once they are all wrapped up put them in their cute food or gift bag, Or even make a cute box to give them to your Valentines <3 As you can see I added lots of Red to wrap and gift mine up. As well as super cute food bags. These will look so cute with your Valentines Hearts with messages inside too!
One more post coming up!
Stay Kawaii!!

All you need for this idea is a few Craft supplies and with miss chibi bean having an abundance of '' Makes things'' as she calls it , I had the following at hand...Origami Paper, Stick on Gems and left over Christmas ribbon, the one that looks so neat and pretty on gifts but is a nightmare to take off to get to unwrapping your christmas gifts . You will also need a hole puncher too.



So step 1~ is the tricky part and takes a bit of time here~

Making a Origami Heart I made a double sided one which can be found Here!! So you would make one of these with your Origami paper (or coloured paper cut to size.)


Step 2~Take the hole punch and make a hole

Step 3~  Thread the ribbon or gift wrap ribbon through the hole and make a bow.

Step 4~ Use a Sticky Gem or other decorative item and stick it on the bow to secure it.

Step 5~ Add a small piece of paper with your message on it , slide it into the folds of the heart to keep it safe and taaa-daaa!

You have a small kawaii love heart with a secret message for a loved one or admirer. 
Chhuuuu!!



These are just so Kawaii!!







I also have some more Kawaii Valentines ideas that I shall post up next time!

Stay Kawaii!
