CutesyKink Wigs Review

Hey all you cuties!

I hope you are all well!  Today's post is all about CutesyKink Wigs! As most of you know I do model these wigs now and I have had so much fun doing so. Am very happy to promote such affordable and wearable wigs! I thought I would go through all the wigs I so far have modelled and share my personal thoughts on them with you. 

So lets get on with it!


The very 1st wig I got was this wig here the Pink Lustre wig. I was over the moon modelling this wig. I adore the shade and the softness in pastel colours of dusty pinks and purples. I styled and tend ot style the wigs with a side fringe its a habit as I do this with my real hair. But I found this a great every day wig and it gets so many nice comments when it is worn. Its a great length not to long to worry about and it also barely tangles.It has large like loose curls that sit well when worn. This wig can be just like hair and be put up down or styled. I have washed this wig and it has not faded or lost any colour, shade or its quality .I have worn this wig so many times and it quickly became one of my favoured wigs! 




The next wig is this big one! Bubble Gum Kiss Pink, a Curly like ringlets, dusty pastel pink wig. This wig has 2 clip in extras that give it more volume and bounce! The clip ins can be used in any way or just one can be used. It had a pre cut fringe which you can see in the photos or you could trim it and or style it to the way your wish to wear it, I adore the curls in this wig. It is a very fun wig and great for a crazy day of dressing up and having fun. You could really fluff up this wig to add even more if you wanted and like I said wear the clips to the way you want.


The other wig I modeled is the Pastel Wings Crimp Wig. I fell in love with this beauty, I loved the idea of crimped hair, this is a super long wig but like the rest of the wigs its light weight and you can wear all the wigs pretty much all day with ease. What I love also is the honey blonde shade and then the pastel colours after as it looks very harajuku and pastel . Something you can really play about with when dressing up and something that gives off that , I just dyed my hair look. You could use this with a range of fashions.

The Ash blonde Flame is a other curly long wig, I love the blonde on this not quite bleach blonde but a nice natural blonde shade! It is quite a girly wig to wear, The other wig Forest wind blonde and green, the one with the teal and green shades. To be honest I was not so sure about this wig and the colours as I never have liked the shade green much and never really worn a straight wig. After a few times wearing this one , I found that I really loved this style and the green really grew on me. I have worn it many times and it can be used widely in styles and such. This is something I am noticing that these wigs can be used for more than one style - if you think outside the box.


The next 2 wigs are really cute.  Lolita sugar brown ,the short one is made up of a base bob wig mixed with browns and has 2 twin tails, clip ins which look like cute pony tails! They are easy to use and are easy to fluff up for extra poof too. The other wig is Choco- Orange which reminds me of a beachy wave mermaid style that looks so casual and pretty with the mix of shades from blonde to a blend of orange. Again easy to look after and each one is easy to restyle to a way you like to wear your wig.


The last 2 wigs I have modeled of late are the Strawberry swirl blonde curls which keeps its curls in so well and you can wear with or with out a fringe and the shade again its a warm blonde so it will suit many skin tones. The last wig is the red bob called Rose Maiden is one which I adore. I really love its curled under style and the way it fades into the other red shade at the ends.

Every wig I have restyled to the way I wear them, I dont really do fringes and bands. Though the side swept fringe is a personal thing , and as the fringes and bangs are pretty long you can  pick and choose how you wear it.
I find these wigs can be worn all day and not have any issues with it being annoying or itchy. These are light weight wigs. These wigs can be restyled, washed and have heat on them. But I favour to let mine dry naturally after a wash and none have lost any shape. Over all these wigs are value for money and you can track your orders with Cutesy Kink so you know its on the way. No need to wait months on end for oversea orders when you have this UK company selling these wigs on your door step. Find the full range here!

ReinboNeko Review

Hey every one - Todays post is a review* that I shall be sharing with you all. The item I am reviewing today is from Reinbo Neko. A UK online retailer who has the most colourful designer in jewellery. It is always a treat to see my news feed with products from Reinbo Neko. They are bright fun and all the shades of a pastel rainbow! Any way I have been late in putting this review up, I have fallen ill and no energy about me at all! Also thanks to being unwell its taken a awfull troll on my skin - meh! So no photos of my face but you really dont wana look at my face anyway, cause you all wana see my item to review.
So my parcel was sent out on Saturday and came to my door on Monday. I didn't even get to open it till the following day but it was worth the wait. Inside was a professional rainbow of presentation of my item. Wrapped in its own bag and came along with promotional items such as business cards and flyers. I always find these a neat touch to a order. Also loved the fact this all came inside a shiny bright pink bubble postal bag. - Love! Kawaii and protective!



So moving on to the item, The item inside as you can see is one of Reinbo nekos newest designs of a unicorn,necklace. Which is also on a range of other items too.
The design is stunning and so so so cute!

The necklace is a 17 ''chain, and even the chain is all colourful as well! The unicorn itself is 3 inches in size, fairly large so would say this is one of your kawaii statement necklaces and it hangs quite low down, I pretty much like this length with such a kawaii statement attached. The unicorn is printed and gloss finish and made of acrylic ,which is really light to wear so your necklace is pretty light weight.I also like to check items made of acrylic that they have been finished around the outer edges- which this one has nicely polished edges, so nothing will catch to it ! 




The design of the unicorn is just so cute, covered in the shades of pastels it looks so magical and has a lovely flow of movement to it - like its ready to leap into life. I find the image enchanting. I love the fact it is covered in stars through the tail and mane,The hearts on its side ( cutie mark?)  And love the colours and those cute little touches of sakura flowers . And not forgetting that blushing little cute face! Over all I very much adore this product, its cute and cheerful. I love the sweetness of the art and wonder what the inspiration is behind the designers thoughts behind this piece. I wonder if she might of met this unicorn in a dream as it feels very dreamy to wear this. I guess its every little girls dream to have the chance to meet a unicorn -hehe.




If you like the look of this adorable unicorn necklace, as much as I do love it. Head on over to the website HERE to get your very own for only £12!! How good it that, even the price is amazing! As well there is tons of items you can have your magical unicorn on such as a cute pillow or tote bag.- kawaii.
But do not fear if unicorns are not your thing cause there is a range of art and items on the website to check out as well!
While your on facebook , why not give them a like and check out the facebook page too!
They can also be found on Twitter, Instagram pinterest and tumblr- Links can be found on the website.

Till next time guys!

Kawaii is not just one type of Fashion or Colour Pallet

Hey every cutie, am sure that all of you know that ,Kawaii is used in many kinds of fashions.

source Google
But have you noticed it gets more of an association on more fashions than others, Lets focus on J-Fashions, There is so many kinds and many sub fashions.But have you noticed once  these reach out of Japan and slowly make their way to the UK there is  are only a few main ones that stand out and some even stay in the UK. Some times Trends come this way but they don't last as long as they do every where else.

source Tumblr

Am gonna pick a few like of Sweet Lolita, Fairy Kei and say Hime Gyaru. Okay so I may or may not have picked  some fashions there because they are all often have the use of Pastel shades.
It did not take long for then Pastel shades to also become kawaii, I have no issue with that at all. These colours and styles seem to be a bit more accepted in the alternative fashions and in the UK, But what about all the other  brighter

Fashions. I wonder if  and why they are being left out?
With so many styles getting more attention that other ones ,you often find these  Lighter colours will come up on a Google search more often and tagged a lot more on tumblr, than the other colours, I guess I wanted to share that Kawaii is not just one Colour Pallet or shades, its every shade and Pallet. Its also can be in every fashion and style.

 I wanted to do a post on more colourful , brighter and more Creative styles of Kawaii. Personally I wonder why many do not wear these sort of fashions -


Is it because the UK in fashion and in the public eye, is not very brave to stand out and be Brighter. Is it because we are to wear dull colours to work/school and get so comfortable that we forget about a splash of colour? Or are we scared to stand out from the crowd and be different?Are we scared to look like we are clown's escaped from a circus? Can we wear Kawaii and Bright Colours together? Maybe we are to mature to wear something that might look childish to on lookers which is why Pastels are easier to wear and not stand out as much.

 I know am very lucky to be able to wear what I want  more a less every day but even I find I end up wearing darker colours at times.

But because I have made a promise to be more colourful in outfits and more kawaii maybe my post here might inspire you. Its also very easy to do is well ! But let's get some inspiration form the streets of Japan where I think we can at least pick a few ideas and adapt them to our own styles.

I guess most inspiration comes from Harajuku Fashion trends, then adapts its way into other fashions. I can imagen that there is new and wonderful ideas coming from there all the time. I love seeing the styles that are colourful in primary shades of colour (Red Blue and Yellow btw.)

There is lots of over the top and layering in some Kawaii fashions but you don't have to do this you can make your outfits kawaii in a simple way and can you can bring in brighter colours with this too.

Mixing styles together is so much fun too. What about Pastel shades with Street styles or Adding brighter tones to your normal Lolita wardrobe? Do you have any crazy accessories or items that you could easily use or even re-vamp to use. DIY Kawaii and hand made are a huge thing over in Japan fashions too.

What do you think? Do you think Bold colours will make a come back. Do you think Bright colours are Kawaii or not? What are your thoughts is Kawaii limited to only girly pastel shades or your imagination is the limit .

But remember , Wear what you enjoy wearing.

Hello Kitty Searching


Hello you Kawaii Lover's .
Do you remember the post I did a while back about the Hello Kitty's Plushes that I found overseas and was so gutted that they were not in the UK at all..(T^T) So sad right!? I wanted them so bad I asked Friends of mine in Japan and even my ''contacts'' to search for them...but it seemed it was Sanrio was wanting to keep them from me...
(see the old post here!)
My ninja Hello Kitty skills failed me.


OR SO I THOUGHT!

Its all about Kawaii!

Hi~Hi Kawaii Lovers,I hope you are all well and keeping super cute!
Myself  I have  been looking for a cute necklace with ''Kawaii '' on it while I have been x-mas shopping,and
I am soo bad for saying Kawaii out loud in places.Unless you know what it means I get lots of Funny looks in shops and the kids sections in too.
So I thought it was only fitting to get a necklace because I love ''Kawaii''.
I spoke to a few companies about a custom necklace but they were all to busy I all most gave up but House of Wonder land came to save me!
I was so happy,though it took a while to get the right fount to work with the word 'Kawaii' so it looked like 'Kawaii' rather than 'KawaII' and then asked if I could have a purple shade and left the rest up to the magical lady at the House of wonderland and OMG!



ITS STUNNING!
I also got the 'Harajuku' necklace a week before,cause I thought well if I dont get a Kawaii one I will have Harajuku,Hanging by my heart.(A place I so want to visit!)
So here is a few Photos ^^
