Hysteric Kingdom review

Hey there cute things.
I have a new review post for you all, This is a small review on a few items I got send with an order from Hysteric Kingdom. I ordered a cute ice cream style necklace - an impulse buy, I really wanted something quirky and cute. I saw it was made from an Bubble tube and liked the idea of it. I also liked the colours. So I went and ordered it. My order did not take long to come even though it had some travelling to do. I sometimes thing my post is well travelled than I will ever be haha. It came in a parcel bag and was all wrapped up.I also go 2 cute rings a brooch and hair clips as well!



Now when I got my post all was fine, until I opened it up and inside my necklace leaked. It was my own stupid fault with so much travel, of course I should of asked them to empty the liquid out. I could easily replace the liquid if I wanted too. So I was lucky at the fact only the brooch seemed to take damage from the small leak and the coating of it came off.Everything else was fine but fear not, as am a dab hand at the D.I.Y Kawaii. I can with ease give it a new coating.


The necklace is long and the pendent of the ice cream is chunky and large, I went for the strawberry colour . Its light weight to wear and is on a blue colour chain. I really like it and have plans for it with a outfit I want to do sometime. But a perfect kawaii item for summer , right?
The other items are these adorable rings, one is almost matching with my ice cream necklace being a small ice cream ring and the other is a lot like a Rilakkuma bear cake which has had a bite taken out of it! Both rings are adjustable in size and really cute.



The Brooch is in a heart shape and was I think silver? but the bubble liquid must of removed that off and now its a shiny white, I revamped it with pink and lots of glitter. It is a cute size and you can wear it anywhere and everywhere as its got a pin on the back to attaching to what ever. I think it is super cute.
The other item is a pair of hair grips/slides that have these tiny little shiny pinky/sliver wings on them that look very quirky and cute. I think they are pretty adorable and magical and with them being very light and simple I could wear these with and with out a wig.



Over all am happy with my items and order, even with the tiny leak of liquid. Again I should of said that it was a over seas order and best to empty it . Silly me! All the items are super cute and adorable. I think this online shop would suit sweet styles and fairy kei or magical girl fashions . So if that is your thing you will love this shop!

Be yourself with N$VNE- Review

Hey every cutie, How are you all doing . I have been working on a few projects over the past few months and the good thing is the projects are starting to come to light which is rather exciting.Just a small warning post has some bad words in the post.Normally I avoid sweary words but these are not spelt as sweary words but that aside I apologise to my youngest readers! But they are censored..kinda. Fun Fact- am actully a very bad role model cause I have a potty mouth! So sorry about that haha!
That aside I have a post that has some strong meaning, so please read on...

Last month I was contacted by a company N$VNE which is pronounced insane by the way , Got in touch with me last month asking if I would be interested in their #beyourfvckingself project.

After a while of emails going back and forth ,being in touch I agreed to work together with N$VNE. What I liked about the project is that is all about well, being yourself and doing what you love to do.


As well as the project sell affordable apparel with a range for both us gurls and for the guys. The style is simple , with meanings behind both  the designs and slogans which are pretty strong and powerful. They even made me stop and think!
''  The focus of our brand and this project is to get people back comfortable with being themselves and their own style. Not so much being caught up on the luxuries that celebrities and artist portray but the average person can not afford. Style isn't for a certain price range, it's an attitude.''

Outfit run down
Hair- CutesyKink
Top- N$VNE
Leggings - Esty
Beanie- Vixxsin

N$VNE, were kind enough to send me a #beyourfvckingself tee and a item as a gift to wear in my own style and fashion. With being introduced to the project it really made me think about style and fashion again. I started changing my own way of thinking.

Why should I dress down if its only the shop am going too?
Why should I compare myself to other social media famous folks?
 I should be my self in the styles, I like. I reminded myself - why care what others think?
Should we hide away in our styles and follow the rest of the crowd?


It really did put my mind into over drive so I started being more myself.
Like, the other day I just threw on eye liner and red lips and no other make up, and I just didn't care what the passers by would think. (my skin has been pretty bad since vacation so I wanted it to breathe but still wear my bright lippy's.)

I stopped and looked at the other styles and fashions I adore and thought, just cause am Kawaii, it do not mean I have to just be Kawaii . So I pulled out some old fashions and wore them . Even the other today I took a vintage style and rocked with with no care in the world. These other styles are part of me as well but don't Panic Kawaii is my signature look for life. 



 N$VNE also have a contest with you uploading your style with their apparel and showing it off.
I will be checking this out and seeing what other styles have been done and may even feel inspired by others who have entered!

'Be Yourself. That's the basis of N$VNE Apparel. That's our purpose and that's what we hope for your to do. With the #BeYourFvckingSelf Contest, we want you to take pictures doing what it is that you do the most. Our customers and fans are from all over the world and range from Artist to Athletes to Models to Students to Skaters and everything in between. What we would like for you to do is take a picture doing whatever it is that you love to do with a picture saying "#BeYourFvckingSelf". 

I love this idea, and I also really dig the whole Be your Self , I think its worth us all taking the time to stop and think, Am doing this for me ? Am I being me? Am I doing this to please myself. Sometimes we need to reflect .

Turning our eyes back to N$VNE .The items they have are really good and well made items. I wanted a oversize of my Tee of #beYourFvckingself and when for a M in size in the end. I could of worn a Small but I love oversize Tee's so much for style and comfort. I am a creature of comfort ! Taking of comfort the tee is easy to wear and so comfortable. The other item was some thing a bit brave on my part. A crop top . Now most of you all are aware am a mommy. And when you have gone through pregnancy it leaves you with a lot of body change's that can really effect you on different levels. With this project I realised . Those stretch marks or changes are a reminder of how amazing us humans are, to make a life. I should be proud of them and not hide them away. Hence why I was being brave.  I got my crop top in the size S . Again the top is well made, and made of soft material. Not only do I love the Project and the products from N$VNE, I found that those who run the company are really nice, enthastic and passionate about what they are doing.

So what are you waiting for my Kawaii Kittens! Its time to #BeYourFvckingself with N$VNE sign up with the news letter and get 10% off too!

Hello Kitty Marine Mamepuchi -Tsum Tsums Review

Hello every one! My its been a while. With Vacation then coming back to my birthday and all the stuff I need to catch up on am glad to sit down and write up a review on my newest items. As you can all ready tell from the title that it is to do with Hello Kitty style Tsum Tsums. Or as Sanrio call them Mamepuchi or Mame petit plushies.

So the newest ones came out and they are a Marine style theme where the characters are dressed up. I ordered a few from Cool_Nippon, my one stop,shop for all kawaii items. It is so nice to have a reliable and trusted seller . I can place my order and be rested assured it will come with no problems what so ever. The shipping is also tracked and the seller gets the items out super fast too.


I was really excited to know when I returned from being away there was a parcel ready to appear on my door step from Japan. YAY! My order came in a brown sturdy box with no damage or dents on it. Inside my items are presented as if I had ordered from a store in person. This makes this feel very personal and thoughtful.My items were in a Sanrio bag. See the above picture.



 
Inside was the full collection for the Marine set, there is a total of 5 of them and that is the following of Hello Kitty, Cinnamon Roll, Pon Pon Purin, My Melody and Gudetama who is a recent character from Sanrio.  Each one is very like the original collection , Hello Kitty is in a pink outfit this time and like the rest it is has sailor style stripes .




Each one also supports details on the sailor collars , their own trademark details like the other set and of course a cute sailor hat in matching colours. They are super adorable looking! They are the same in size of the other set too. I can not get over how cute each little sailor hat is on them . I have such a love for palm sized items and miniature sizes. I bet it is cause it is the fact that it is far easy to display and store them all stacked up than bigger sizes!These make a great gift for Kawaii lovers and Sanrio Fan's!

 You can buy your own set here!!Cool_ Nippon shop link!!
