It's 2017, Lets make it cute!

It's that time again to reflect on the year and put some new plans for the next year. May they be dreams or plans. Maybe an event here and there.

This year has been pretty crazy for me. I have enjoyed it for the most part. I have had some stress's and bumps along the way like every other cutie out there! But I made it . No. WE MADE it! I did not know what 2016 had in mind nor did I make many plans myself .  However I did reach a few personal goals on my part and I also had a fun year of sponsored reviews and events. I also had a great time this year cosplaying. Meeting new folks and having lots of fun. I also for the 1st time in ages had a wonderful birthday. It was one of my highlights. Yup -billy nea mates here ( cause all my mates are no where near me or online.) Any way it still became an day and I felt so blessed to spend it with my own sister who knows me better than I know myself. 

I did some crazy things this year. I shaved off my hair...( ever wonder why I was wearing more wigs of late haha!) I took part in a inflatable 5K fun obstacle course ! I also had an amazing opportunity with Cutesy Kink where I designed my very own wig line! I would love to expand on that one day but who knows what the next few years will hold!?  I did more modelling and photos shoots this year , I hope that this will continue well into 2017. This year I was fully accepted into the awkward mom crew at school (LMAO!) am classed as the Kawaii awkward one .  I now go out on mom dates! ( whats that all about!?) Maybe I will blog post about those dates some time . Its like so strange to me haha.

Back in April, my busiest month  I was a guest at a Gaming convention, Which was the most amazing thing ever. I keep all my memories from it treasured even though I lost my voice  and I was granted to be press at over conventions. I was at so many conventions this year am not quite sure how I managed them! I was also invited to a few events in London but alas being the Kawaii Mom I have my restrictions!

I have also enjoyed the company of my dear friends who have stuck with me this year and loved meeting brand new ones who I also hope will stick around in 2017!




To round up the near end of the year I put my energy in to helping out a local lot , made up of cosplayers and the most friendly bunch of geeks/ nerds/ costumers/ cosplay folks you could ever meet. This lot with the help of the organisers and team from CHAS do a road show collection to raise money before the event they hold where all profits go to CHAS- a children's charity. The group together get out in the public eye and raise as much money as possible and then at the event - which is a sci fi ( but not limited to sci fi ) Convention. I have had the pleasure to join at many of these collection days and its win - win. You cosplay , you enjoy it , you meet folks and hang out with such a fun team and its all for the children who need our support and help.

Over all I think 2016 has been kind to me. I feel very blessed to have had such a well balanced year. I hope that 2017 will bring more new opportunities , new things such as events and much much more!
I also wish each and every one of you a wonderful kawaii happy new year .

Conventions so far this year.

So this year, its my year of conventions this year. Starting off with a Edinburgh based one called Capital Sci Fi Con. Which you guessed it was mainly about all things Geeky and Sci Fi. For this Con I made up a (Fem) Darth Vader Causal Cosplay. Which was really weird for me cause I had not idea how I would act or be like as Vader . I mean am a huge fan of Lord Vader but yeah am more your magical hero girl than anything like that . So that was really weird for me. However I did get to meet up with tons of fellow cos players whom I have not seen in ages and hang out with my deco girly pal too. It was also super nice meeting new folks at the Con as well as hanging out with those I already have mingled and chilled with before.

Back to being a Kawaii Mama and life again

Hey guys - how are you all?
So what's new? I have not done a Blog post in a while. I have been visited by the charm of mother nature - which have dragged me down and am back to the reality of the School Runs of being a Kawaii Mama. *sigh* Which has left me limited to blogging. See this is why I adore the school holidays I can get everything done! And not need to worry if I can get away with being Super Kawaii and having them odd looks from the other mums, in saying that am finding that they like my bright pink lippy , so I guess am braking them in slowly - heh-.

Do you ever feel that cause you love cute stuff or anything in this matter , that you have to tone it down around others cause your not up for explaining every single time that its just your style? I don't have the time to explain or express at 8am in the mornings while dropping off a 3 year old who likes to refuse to go into the class and then abandons me as soon as she see's her play pals. I just don't have time too. lol! I need to head back and use the very little time of freedom to blitz the house and tidy it up.

Over the holidays, I have been having fun with events and lots of play time with my daughter and spending time as a family its always nice and sometimes stressful. It also gives me a chance to explore and have some fun with Kawaii fashion with out getting the odd risen eyebrow from other mothers and have started up my You tube videos again - yay! On my You tube you can get enjoy my Kawaii Character Videos ! I hope to do as many as I can and try and do them every weekend. when I have the time too. Please Check them out if you like! Here is the Link!

The other week I went to a Alice in wonderland themed Cafe  which was a nice change, Its a nice place in Edinburgh City I was taken there are a treat with my Sister while we had been shopping.

I have a few photos on my Instagram from being there so check it out! Its a cute little place, that has bits and pieces form the Alice in wonderland movie and films. Such as a Table and Chair on the ceiling, The red queens rose garden and art from the movie's in frames that are all topsy turvy. It's more of a tea room than a cafe and plenty of brews to pick from the selected menu. We only had time for a rose lemonade and cake!

So while keeping busy I am also know contributing to a UK website full of interesting and up to date information from Games to Anime called Cyten worth checking them out! I will be their Kawaii lifestyle contributor along side Kawaii fashion Queen and cutie Aisha Anime! www.cyten.co.uk

I have a few upcoming projects and events at least these are a bit more spaced out that the start of the year! But I will be attending MCM - Scotland in a sorta attempt of Cosplay , keep a eye on my Facebook to find out some clues for this! As well I be at the Scottish Gaming Expo and  Aunchinawa this year.  So if you do spot me and wana come say Hello then be sure to come on over I don't bite and I will have my Camera on me too. Oh and am only 2 units away from completing my Photography course and I have some projects that I will be needing some models for! which is really cool too!

So yea sorry its a bit of a dull post but I thought maybe you all were bored of reviews and such and would love to get your feed back on the stuff you wana see, hear and know about on both my blog and you tube since am using both much more than I did in the past! - huhuh-
So till next time Laters

Hyper Japan x Tartan

Hey every one, today's post is more of  a personal take on Hyper Japan. I hope you enjoy it!
My adventure started on by leaving super early on Thursday. Spent the whole day in London and suffered from the heat!  Taking shade at the Natural History Museum and drinking lots of bubble tea.


It was super busy inside but I got some very stunning shots with my camera, I got stopped at the door for my bag to be searched  I was super embarrassed because the part they looked in was full of Lady products. -OMG *DIES*. Ending up spending most of our day in the museum and then returned for a early night to rest up for Friday the start of the Hyper Japan weekend.


Friday was a case of getting up dressed, wearing a Tartan Fuku( but of course!) , bracing the heat as the even started at noon and heading over to the event , my hubby joined the queue and I found Angela from the blog life in the kawaii lane, which was so nice to meet a fellow blogger and Kawaii lover after that I had to exchange my paper work for my press pass, I meet some lovely members who were press too and  walked into the event. Only staff were in there, staff and the vendors setting up. It was empty. I was over whelmed and the first thing you feel is the sheer size of the event and size.

I enjoyed looking around all the stalls and exhibitor's. The Traditional performers were breath taking and the other performances where so enjoyable. I also meet up with Cutesy Kink a UK clothing  retailer and spoke away to the awesome store owner. I loved the fact that these events bring folk together. Then I headed over to a other store stall Artbox, I been a fan of ArtBox a long long time and they recognised me haha maybe cause I spent most of my birthday money at their online shop, I bought a few things from them and enjoyed the rest of the day. It was much more relaxed that day and not as busy you could easily walk about with out getting in any ones way. I also meet the lovely Aisha from The Anime UK show and we got our photo taken with digital Domo...we were a bit gutted about this we wanted the REAL domo! As a big Domo fan we want the real thing haha. Soon enough we found out that the real Domo would be around later so like a hawk, fangirl... I kept going back to find him and got my photo taken with him!! YAY!!

Doj-con Event

Hello Kawaii Fan's.
So at the weekend I went to Scotland's free anime convention. Doj-con.
I arrived about a hour into the event, it was a really good event and more so for some one that has never been to a event. Like myself.

When I got there there was no need to stand in line,more a less walked right in, I went with my sister who wanted to take some photos and see what all the fuss was about.Any how the event was on all 5 levels.I didn't get  into see any talks or join in any battles or games, I really was just wondering around taking everything in to be honest.I felt sorry for those on the stalls they looked all very crammed in and thought that they would have been better having spread them out on all the other levels but hey that's just me!.The amount of folk there was impressive.At points it felt like you were just standing in one place to get past or trying to join a flow of cosplayer's and people to get out of the levels to the next.I was actually dreading stairs with so much traffic but it was fine once every one stayed to the left...It was like being back at school haha! 
Any how here is a bunch of Photo spam for you all to enjoy!




My sweet yet toned down outfit co-ord for the event,I wore my brand new wig from Lockshop too and really liked the whole outfit .I really love wearing beret hats too hehe
Here are more photos from the event its self.
