Tartan's top five Kawaii Christmas Shops Guide

Hey every one! Yuno what can be super hard? Buying for a loved one or a friend who is super Kawaii , they can be super tough to buy for! So I made up a list of Kawaii items that I think would make a super kawaii gift for the Kawaii cutie that has everything already! I also have done my best to stick to UK retailers as already Christmas is sneaking right up on us! Kyaaa~

Straight in at number 5 am going to show you Kawaii Club Subscription brought to you by Keep secret , Keep it Kawaii. Based here in the UK! This is a great idea for any Kawaii lover, You can pick the kind of Subscription  you want and then get it addressed to the person to the box and every month is a surprise! With goodies all the way from Japan and from licensed companies this will not disappoint!


At number 4 check out Cutesy Kinky for a full range of Kawaii Fashion from cute fairy kei to Lolita outfits. Not only that you can find a range of cosplay and other Kawaii bits and bobs , which are great for stocking fillers and small gifts for giving. I am loving the new Kawaii Winter range full of warm cosy looking hoodies ! Not only will you stay super warm you will look super Kawaii at the same time! You can find so many cute outfits here!

In at number 3 and a personal fave shop of mine will be the lovely and cute Frilly Pops who can be found on Esty. The owner is the queen of pom poms and puts my own home made ones to pom pom shame. You can get the most adorable pom pom earring and even garlands to make any Kawaii lover fall in love with such a cute gift! From wearing them to displaying them in your very own kawaii space! These will be a hit for those who like to stand out from the crowd and are super quirky earrings to wear~ I must have at least 5 pairs of these adorable earrings!


Coming in at number 2 I decided to pick ArtBox a other  online based UK retailer and what I adore about ArtBox is the FREE shipping and little extras that you can add to your basket as a gift! Find your Kawaii Cards and items here. I have a soft spot for all the Soft toys and the Plush dolls!

And in at number 1 I am picking a small business called ILoveCrafty. A really sassy and trendy yet Kawaii online store that I have also used, I have used all the shops listed here. And I love the designs and the owners style here.  I have a few items and love them dearly. From really being a mermaid to crazy cat lady items there is something for every one. I have to admit the Donut stuff is so cute a mix of yummy food ( I love iced donuts!)  cute pastels and dash of glitter is so adorable!



I hope my small shop guide will help you with your christmas shopping guys!
Later, Tartan xox

A small make up haul

Hey there cuties, How are you all, this weekend and start to the week has been very stressful with a trip to the Hospital for Chibi bean who has been unwell and a stressful few phone calls to the local GP. She has a infection and I hope its all cleared up for Christmas and her Birthday. So I not gotten round to doing this small makeup post.
Ahh the stress and worry of being a Kawaii Mummy! 
So its only a week till Christmas. Are you all getting excited?What are you all asking for Christmas?

Did you know I won a Giveaway on Facebook?! I won a drawn illustration by Jenni.Illustrations who does Chibi cute art,its all very sweet and darling, I follow her on instagram and love seeing her creations being posted,am very excited to have won! I will try and post a picture of my piece when its done,its a pic of me and my Christmas wish list! Kyaa cute ( I have asked for a Giant Domo Kun!)

So I am not really doing a review as such more a show and tell.
I placed a order with Fairy Cosmetics its a small online shop with lots of low priced make-up . Its not got the most amazing range but its got a fair few items to check out.
The best thing is the free shipping when you spend over £10!
Woah! Free shipping! Great.

I ordered some loose powder products and  some fake nails.
As well as a other product as a Christmas gift the false lashies but am not saying who its for  as they might see it on my blog haha!

The items came in a small box and came really quick.
I picked these 2 loose powder products on a whim.



They are rather cute, the pigments of these are very strong and long lasting one is a blusher the other is a body shimmer in a brown shade acting as a bronzer. They came with tiny little blusher puffies too.
Very cute!
  
The false nails set I got were the These ones!
And for the set I was only £1.99!!!! And its a big set, They are super easy to use and I have had mine on for 3 days and they are very hard wearing! I had to trim them as they were super long but they are very thin and fixable, I use fake ones a lot and often and need hard wearing nails and long lasting ones these have proven to be value for money and a great false nail set with all the different sizes to pick and then simply glue them on. Just like that!
Over all am super happy with my order, Its sort of a what you pay for is what you get web site and its a bit of a struggle to get used to its drop down menu but I can see me popping back and forth to buy the odd thing and my new fave type of fake nails!

Till next time!

Christmas shopping


Hello everyone, my goodness it is getting so cold! Okay I admit that a person who feels the cold all the time. Which does not make much sense when am living in Scotland, Right?
So I have made a start to my Christmas Shopping ,when I think about it. It is almost done!
Yesterday I went out to a shopping centre with my wee family and bought a few more gifts for my friends.Its only a week in November and am poor already! I think its due to the fact I got back online ans soon as my change of address details changed over I was itching to get spending for Christmas and treat myself! Having no internet really scarred me...(drama queen, Blogger 1st world problems LOL!) 


So on a whim we went to a near by shopping centre after my Doctor appointment- Ive got a trapped nerve in my neck that is effecting my left hand nerves too.  *Sobs* 

Nothing a bit of retail therapy can not help right? I finished of 3 gifts and got myself a new 2 new belts as my jeans slide down - Don't you hate being stuck between sizes!!
So here is some photo spam for you all!


The centre had its Christmas decorations up the size of those ball's hanging from the roof was a bit scary. I hope they don't fall!!
 

I love white Christmas trees something magic about them hehe 


Am guessing that seat is for a VIP nearer Christmas...not gona catch me near him though, Did you know I am completely scared to death of folk who dress up as Father Christmas, Really creeps me out!

The bear and the polar animals are so cute though.



Some Images below the tree so sparkly and glittery.


How cute is this little display which was found at the main doors of the centre.

 I think the little bridge was really sweet, hehe.


After a good bit of wondering around the shops, avoiding Chibi's beans refusal of going into shops and tantrums we stopped for a bite to eat and drink.
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?


I have been crazing Hot Chocolates of late am not sure why maybe cause they are so cosy and sweet!
so yummy!I also got a cherry muffin. 
It was super yummy and freshly baked too. When I got back home I found a ''sorry you were out card.''After some debate with Hubby over who's parcel it might be. We had to wait a while till we could go to the post office to collect it. But lucky for me Hubby went out to pick it up,to my delight it was for me, Haha! Yea he when in the huff as he is waiting on lots of pieces for the computer and wires and all that geeky techi stuff of his.


What was inside?! Well it was my long awaited Rilakkuma bear!


a Neko Plush, (to go with my other one from MCM Scotland.) 2 sheets of Stickers and a dust plug for my phone in the shape of a bow in hot pink. Ypu can check out my instagram on the link for more photos.
As well as a busy day I have also been working on a new side project called ''Kawaii Kraze'' I hope to do a post about it real soon!
Lots more to come to the blog!
