Doki Doki Box - Review

S'up, So I do have a new post for you all . Again its a Review. Am sorry if they bore you . However I hope this one will not bored you cause it really is a cute one.  So What I have today is a Doki Doki Box* to share with you. I was going to do a un boxing video on you tube but for the past 2 weeks I have been very unwell and I didn't want any of you to be a subject to watch such a thing. Cause gurl that is sure not kawaii , is it now? So with all that outta the way let's check out this Doki Doki box.



Doki Doki is a monthly subscription box by Japan Crate which is new on the Kawaii market, There is a fair few boxes that I have tried and subscribed to and this one looked a little more promising as with all the ones out so far have been very similar and the items are sometimes repeated over and over. Any way this one seem to bring more to the box. Doki Doki is Japanese for the sound of your heart , like a heart beat. I really liked the idea of the name.

Back to School Haul - Kawaii Style with Modes4U


Hello every one , I really can not get over the fact here, the schools are back . And where did summer go!? Ah so much to do and get ready..Any way myself and Modes4U got together and they have sent me a few items for going back to school! ( Am not really going back to school but these items could be used at home or even at work. Am not forgetting about the mature kawaii lovers here!) I will be giving my stuff to my little one to use ,who is starting school.


Modes4U is a Kawaii Shop who have lots of items from  Japanese Stationery to Hello Kitty and that is just the tip of it.There is many items to pick from and this is your one stop shop for getting all your back to school items in one place. The prices are good and with such a range of items you might spend a good few hours picking the products you want!
Mode4U send me over a good few items for getting back to school started and of course in the most Kawaii way possible!



For getting ready and back to school I got a few must have items, Such as the adorable and ever so fluffy pencil case of Hello Kitty!  Not only is she so cute she is a good size with her zipper, lined inside and can hold a fair amount of pens. I adore her polka dot bow!

As you can see all these items are based on my favourite darling of cuteness Hello Kitty!
Also we have a exercise book, this is a square style one that you most likely would use in Maths but you really could use it for English too. I adore the fact its cute , roughly a A4 side and covered in pink leopard print with Hello Kitty and her stylish purple bow . ( my all time fave print and style!) I hated Maths at school am sure if our jotters where this cute I might of taken more of an interest. Ha..


Of course we will be needing to fill up the pencil case and use something with the work book. So I also have a pencil , one of those mechanical ones where you press the top a few times to get the led out. No need to mess about with a sharpener again! And its a pretty pink one and has the adorable Kitty chan on it in theme and decoration! Its so nice I might have to claim this one as my own! Of course an eraser was included for all those mistakes and spelling mishaps I will most likely make when am writing things down . Again this is a Hello Kitty themed item that has a cardboard sleeve to hold when using and looks so cute!



The other item with my back to school haul was a Re-ment Box and again it was a theme of going back to school miniature items in a hello kitty style. I got the School bag or the Japanese style School bag with a pair of gym shoes and gym bag. I have a soft spot for Re-ment boxes even though this is my 3rd one I have ever gotten! I like to use them for my very own BJD who is called Mimmy!

So if your starting a new year in the next few weeks then you need to go on over to Modes4U and bring on the new term with lots of Kawaii style. Am sure with all this super cute stuff that your gonna learn so much more and keep super kawaii at the same time!

Shop now!!!

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!!

Maison de Moggy ~Edinburghs Cat Cafe

Last weekend I went with some friends of mine to Maison de Moggy. Edinburgh Cat Cafe 1st Cat cafe opened and soon as I heard about it I had to go. Now if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you might have seen some photos already but its Cats! Am such a Cat person. So yes, Cat cafe...
what is it? Well it is just a normal cafe but while you eat and drink you get to enjoy the company of furry babies as most of the cats, who were very young and looked so tiny to me as my own cat is 6 this year and is a huge tom. 
There was a small selection of cakes, treats and drinks and no the cats are not near the food , all the food is sealed away from the cats. The rules are simple- once in shoes off and disinfect your hands. No waking up the sleepy kitty's or picking them up.


Apart form that you can enjoy your booked time - we booked for 2 hours.-with your new furry friends. The cats were content and happy in the cafe which the staff or 'Cat Nanny's' have created into a very calm environment for the cats.  There is plenty toys and climbing activies for the cats to amuse them selfs and they get lots of love and attentions from the customers and the Cat Nanny's on watch. They have lots of room to roam about in. There was also a down the stairs was a second room where 2 cats were found and seemed to be having a sleepy day where the more active cats were upstairs having all the fun. I think one was Coco who was a black British  short haired cat, All the breeds were pedigrees. From Ragdolls to Bangles.



There was lots of places for a Cat nap or a place for the Cats to get away and have some me - time alone away from customers. Lots of hiding places to play and jump out on each other too.
All the Cats were friendly once they got used to you and some would be happy to sit on your lap for a cuddle and pet, where others were game for chasing toys or string around the room.



I loved seeing all the cat like towers and climbing frames to keep them active and happy, its like a Kittys playground wonderland. Also there was plenty beds for the cats to curl up on and sleep.The current location is not a permanent place for the Cafe - they will be moving later this year but it was only a 5-10mins bus ride from Prince's Street.


Over all I enjoyed my visit to the cat cafe, it was very relaxing, delightful and lots of fun, more so because I went along with my kawaii girls and we all had a giggle wearing cat ears and most of us ended up in pastels, the Staff loved our cat ears. For some reason I thought it would of be a noisy busy place but no it was purrrfact. I can not wait to return, to play with the kitties again and would love to take some other friends to share the experience.  If you love cats and cake and looking for a nice place to chill out with the fur babies then this is the place for you!


Till next time!

Hello Kitty - Cute bags

 Hey every one!
How are you all doing. Sorry about the lack of posts and such, Oh if you have not already noticed that there is a few blog style changes - Don't worry these are temporary as I have a new make over for my blog coming soon! Yay.
But that aside, I have a nice email found in my inbox - a sneaky look into some upcoming products from Sanrio.  Don't ask but I am a bit of a internet ninja haha. I do enjoy that thrill of hunting down kawaii products as my prey to add to my forever growing collection. 


Check out these handbags, Hello Kitty  seems to be a master at making bags look cute , Right?

Hello Kitty is going eco with re-useable bag friendly with these adorable fold away bags  with cute hearts on the zippers and you just pop them into your hand bag. Now that we have to pay extra for a plastic bag in the shops we can be caught short of a bag. So these are pretty handy to have a few and of course look super cute at the same time. I have a bunch of eco bags- they are really handy to have and do not rip like the plastic ones and can be used over and over again.

I also spotted this and these are so cute. I think they are the kind you place on your nails and file them to fit on the nail and ta-da! Wonder looking super cute nail art with our favourite Kawaii Character Hello Kitty! I wish I could use these nail wraps/ foils and make them look as good as these ones! I like colourful designs!





These pouch bags are pretty cute but am no the fence with them as I never use these things much . Like I have 5 make up bags and epp I do not use them! I keep all my make up in a drawer and a storage fabric box.  But loving that cute little pearl on the zipper!

What do you guys think of these upcoming items from Japan. Anything take your fancy. What would you like to see come over  to the UK. Am sorta liking those Eco bags even if I already have a few in other kawaii characters.

How to make a Kawaii Christmas

AH I love Christmas, I love the whole setting it up and decorations!
I often take some down time to get ready as most of you know that I also have a sweet Christmas star's birthday on the same day. Yup Chibi Bean will be a whole 4 years old on Christmas day! Kyaaa!!! She is already excited with seeing me getting it all ready.
Before Chibi came along I did not really do much at Christmas at all, I even tried to work it if I could so I didn't have to do the whole Christmas thing, I lost interest in it. But of course that has all changed since Chibi bean came along! I put all my energy into it every year now!
This is the 4th year of my some what famous Hello Kitty tree but am not giving out details of it all just yet!
Instead this post is showing off my DIY Kawaii ideas and other Ideas to make things Kawaii!
Wanting to give a kawaii make over to your Christmas is pretty easy, you just have to think...well think Kawaii!
Recycling old Christmas decorations is a cheap option and you can make them as good as a new item in the shop!Changing the colour theme to whites and pastels or mixing soft colours is also a great idea!

I took this old mini white tree and a mini pink wreath I had that I wanted to recycle so I took the pick like branches off the wreath and attached them with strong glue to the thin and some what looking sorry for its self tree. I was very happy with my new pink and white tree that not only looks Kawaii but much fuller too!


But what happened to the wreath's base? Well I wanted to add more colour to my Kawaii Christmas theme and happened to be making Pom poms and created a new Pom pom  wreath along side a new Pom pom Garland to hang up! And I even used sparkly wool and added extra glitter for fun.I can not wait to hang it up on the wall! Pom poms really can make something look super cute!


 I also made with Pom Poms cute Candle bases ( mind you might not be very particle with wool and a open flame.)Which some of you might see at the next up coming Maid cafe as well as the garlands too! Also keep a eye out for my new Pom pom hair band I made thats pastel and Kawaii with Glittery like snow !

Check out this cute Kawaii Christmas Bauble!


As well as having fun with pinks whites pom poms and glitter I also have been having lots of fun with Christmas Baubles, which I wanted to make more of but never mind I have next year to make more right?
I wanted to make my own ones and it was really easy to make these! Getting hold of material was also easy to do , well I did get my baubles a bit to big for the kawaii things I wanted to add to them - whoops!- But then I found something to go in them and found smaller baubles to use.
I have made a DIY kawaii video to share with you all here on my youtube Channel!!!

Aswell you can follow the easy steps shown below in photos too cause they were so much fun I pick Kawaii Characters I love lots of Hello Kitty and my fave kawaii bear Rilakkuma and his friends too! Not only that they each live in their own wonderland of snow!

You will need!
Clear Plastic Christmas Baubles that can come apart.
Craft Glue
Small Toys or Kawaii Characters to fit inside the Bauble.
Glitter Snow of your choice.
And some Rhinestones to decorate.

Split the bauble and attach your rhinestones both in the inner side and outer side. Make sure you leave space between the rhinestones. I used tweezers to pick them up and place them in the Bauble!



Using Craft Glue or Strong glue to  place your Kawaii item inside and leave to dry!
Mine too 5mins or so. Then you want to add in the Snow, I added mine to the other half of the bauble to make it easier, not to much you don't want to lose your Character in all the snow!



Then using glue to seal the outer edges but both sides together and then add some string .
And there you have it Kawaii Characters in Christmas baubles! Just like that Easy!!!
Of course you can make em any size you want or any theme you want! I can not wait to see any you make and how they will look on your Kawaii Christmas Tree's!
I am looking forward to having these on my tree so much! Way to cute.


Not only making you own stuff will be fun but also it will be unique to you and your Christmas!
Keep a eye of my final Kawaii Christmas post coming real soon.
Till Later.

Hello Kitty prize!

Hey every Cutie!
Guess what, A about a week ago . I won a contest by The cute shop, an online shop that has lots of kawaii items mainly Sanrio and other kawaii characters and you all know how much I adore miss Kitty chan. It has so many cute products, I have shopped with them in the past and there is so much to look at.
Anyway I thought I would see if I was lucky and entered the contest give-away. You could win some items for your kitchen, My kitchen is the least kawaii room in my whole house lol. So I thought, how cute would it be to have so kawaii in my kitchen too.

So I was pleasantly surprised to be contacted to say I had won some Kitty prizes! Yay 
I got my prize sent to me in about a week it was with me , I was really excited to get my prize.




  My items came in a cute pink bag and were well wrapped.

  
The apron is so cute and fits well it has ties at the back. This is the image on the front of it and its says ''Kitty's room is full of fun and play.'' I have worn this 2 times and it has 2 front pockets on it very , its very light weight and pretty.





Also in my prize was this super kawaii oven mitt. Its so cute and fluffy with Kitty and a rose decoration on it on the outer side and the quilted side. I have used this mainly for holding the hold handles from my posts after they have been used to boil water. Its very handy to have and cute in my kitchen -Kawaii~




Lastly I got a very sweet hello kitty dish/hand towel , It has a cute decoration to it and very is very soft. I like how it is a nice pastel shade of pink and is so pretty. I use it more of a hand towel in my kitchen.
Over all the products are very good quality. Also I was given a gift discount in my prize gift. Yay! So I have ordered a small amount of goodies from a Kitty range I love the most. I am very excited to get them. 
I hope you like the review of my prize goods.

Kawaii Rainbow times.

Hey every Cutie!
Cute pillows!
How are you all doing!?

I wanted to share with you some new Kawaii items I have bought of late, Once again I caved in and bought some cute jewellery items form Enji! *waves*

I love her jewellery so much, its so original and Kawaii! So I was playing about with new things I have learnt with my camera and got some super Kawaii shots with the jewellery nyaa! I hope you like them.

So I also got myself some cute pillows to use in my room they are rainbow themed. They are very lovely and soft.  One is a Rainbow shape and the other 2 are heart shape with Rainbow colour's on them. Very cute hehe I also added my san-x bear pillows in the photo for added cute-ness.  They look very cute in my spare room which I have been working on .
 Now I have made the choice that it will be my 'Kawaii room'' A place I can escape too. But will be doubled up as my *Drum roll* Photography studio room!!! It was meant to be the Guest/ Rilakkuma room but things change haha, It will still be a Guest room too though.
With re painting items white and putting up white shelves to keep the room light and airy for shooting with the (pop up) Back sheet frame with drop, lights, kit ect. I will be needing this, for the next coming months for my photography projects.

Kawaii Ham - Ham loves Enji!


So  I have been setting up my Kawaii and cute items up on the shelves in the room and because I repainted the book shelf there is some kawaii on that too! Yay.
 I have my cute anime and vocailoid figures up on the shelf easy for me to get hold of them as I like doing toy photography, I also have a few smaller plush dolls on this shelf   I have a few Hello Kitty's and Mimmy's here too. As well as a couple of Cat themed things. I do like my Cats. Oh and of course dont go forgetting about my Lucky Cat and Domo too! Am also a Momiji Fan, I have been for ages and I felt like my dolls were not getting much love in the Kitchen so I moved them into the spare room to be admired instead. 

Also this month I caved in - 3 months into this year and I failed. I bought something Hello Kitty
Yep, I was trying to get at least half way through the year and not buy anything Kitty..whoops!
How ever I really happy with the new bag I got. Its bright and a great size - Ah  I just love it! So I have been using it a bit more than my other bags and every time I have used it, I have had a great response and comment on my bag. From '' OH MY LOVE THAT BAG'' to''Wow that is a cute bag'' from other Mummy's at playgroup. Who also admire my other ''funky'' as they say bags and even the staff and customers at the local shop comment on my bags. Which then they were left drooling over my purse too. I some times wonder if these folks have never seen cute before and maybe like to see more of it appearing. hehe its nice to get positive reactions- regardless.
As I  said in the past month or so am going to many events, in April so I should be able to blog lots more. If there is any thing you want me to cover or take photo's of ( keep it clean.) I would like to hear your suggestions!
I hope to put up a post soon of my Toy Photography yay! so watch this space.
Till later <3 Tartan.

Kitty and her twin Mimmy

Have you ever noticed that Hello Kitty get all the glory and fame?
I was watching Hello Kitty the Tv series with my daughter and I found that I was rather fond of Mimmy.
She is a bit more Shy than Kitty but she quite a funny character and can be rather sarcastic about how Kitty eats way to much and is so lazy at times.I have to say I equally love them both.


It got me thinking, You really do not see much Mimmy Products, Well not many at all unless she is with her sister Mimmy. Maybe it is a UK thing but even I (Addicted to all things Kawaii.) Maybe own 3 Mimmy items that all came as a set. Two of which are Plush sets and the other is a Plastic Figure. I did buy one tiny Mimmy but it was for those cute Hello Kitty Play sets for my daughter- I like to make sure she builds up the sets and have the full collection.
I would love to see more of Mimmy and her own style in products, I think Mimmy needs to shine out and be given a chance. I do love Kitty but because they are twins, I would adore even more that if there was more 'Twin themed' items or even 'Best friends' ones that include Mimmy as well .
What about matching Twin baby-grow's made for baby twins or all in ones aka oneies for us older fans.
I would love to see just a range for Mimmy but I do doubt that as a company Sanrio may have thought Mimmy would not make as much money as Hello Kitty. Some times I images that Mimmy is crying in the corner as her sister claims all the benefits lol!
Any way I guess am just rambling a bit... But I thought I would share my new Mimmy and Kitty Figures.
I got them at a great price £5 and that was with free shipping! The only annoying thing was the box that the figures were are displayed in got damaged in the post.
However there is no damage to Kitty and Mimmy! So here is some photos.

They are super cute in there famous outfits that match and wearing their bows. They are 10cm tall and light weight plastic material. I will be using mine for displaying on the shelves. I would like to put up in the spare room.


Till next time, I hope you enjoy my post!
Stay Kawaii!
