Let's Talk Mermaids and Unicorns


The Unicorn and Mermaid trend you either love it or hate it. Or maybe your on the fence like me and not sure which mystical creature you dig the most. Go back last year and even the year before that. We got hit hard with these creatures surfacing online , making it easy to find a cute mermaid gift or those unicorn accessories you really needed.  Heck even my bedroom has a hints of unicorns in the room , such as the wall mount head of a unicorn and a unicorn bedspread. Don't worry its not overload but there is hints around the room I like them. I mean what is there not to like. Oh and don't get me wrong I do love mermaids too. Now we can walk into every shop form a stationary shop to the discount stores and find some of these trends ,all way up to the shops your own mother in law shops in and you will discover that yes. Yes even Next, have adult size tops with Unicorns on them. So with every one jumping on the trend train even your make up has had the Unicorn/ Mermaid trends too.

In this post am going to talk about some make up I have tested out. So let's do this.

Are we over , You Tube ??

Thank you Youtube for the new requirements for being a youtube partner...its been fun. We got together in 2007 and its been a ride. But now you want to brake up with me and stop any channel or small youtuber earning any extra money cause we don't have the requirements for this relationship any more. I was a bit hurt at first but then after letting this brake up set in. Am so over it.

My newest obsession...Ufufy's

Hey Kawaii cuties & Happy new year its 2018!
Wow I have gotten so lazy with posting but Christmas is a crazy time of year not that anyone is interested in my excuses for not posting in months lol. ( like anyone even reads my blog these days.)


So my newest obsession is this new range or collection that started in Japan.
Disney Ufufy's are egg shaped cute often pastel Disney characters that have come to the UK- yay!
They are scented and the most Kawaii cuties I have seen in ages since the tsum tsum craze. I am not sure if these will take off as big as the Tsum tsums but am addicted to these.

The 1st set that came to the UK was Mickey and friends , I think I got them all but 2 all of them were scented with apple blossom. There was also a HUGE size Donald duck and Winnie the pooh , of course I had to get the large Donald. He is far to cute! Then a while later came the Beauty and the Beast set came along which were rose scented, a rather strong rose scent might I add.


Out of the whole set I only wanted Belle but in the end got both Belle and Beast as he is stupidly grumpy looking so much so he is cute haha. I was not keen on the others in this set as I felt the egg shape didn't really do it for me. Just before christmas a new set came to the Disney store and I HAD to get them as it was Snow White and as a Snow white fan..I picked 3 from that set .

Snow, Dopey and Grumpy were quickly added to my new growing collection.





I love how adorable they all are the dwarfs really suit this new kawaii look . These ones did not come with a new scent but the apple blossom like the other ones. I guess the BATB ones are rose for some reason. I am always looking out for leaks on which new Ufufys are due out but I do love some of the cute ones that are only in Japan at this time. Most are the same characters over and over for celebrations or Holidays . I wonder if we will be getting any more or if we will get all the princesses as ufufy's in the future?

Which Character would you like to see next come out?

Stay Kawaii xox

YouTubers and Make Up Inspiration


Hey there cuties!
Today am sharing a few of my all time favoured you tube channels/ accounts. These are you-tubers I really like personally and follow. I thought some of you might be interested in the accounts and maybe you all have a suggestion of channels I need to check out too.

My all time loved you tuber is the channel 'itslikelymakeup'.
Jordie, I adore her so much she is such a button.I just love everything about her , I feel we could totally be gal pals haha! I guess I can relate to her a lot with also being a mom too and a cat mom, oh her cats are just so sweet they are Sphinx breed cats - all the love for them ! I love her make up and love her videos and follow her on most accounts.She also was in the nyx cosmetics face awards and was in the last of the runner ups. As I like nyx make up I find I get a lot of inspiration form her videos with the make up. She has been a bit quite with moving and all but I really adore her channel and content, she can do really creative make up to every day make up that I love so she is my top make up you tuber! So please check her out! 

Secondly I like Sophie Li Ying,  her make up is very goth/ nu goth/ alternative and grunge. She uses a lot of make up brands I use myself. Such as Limecrime, Jeffree star and some Kat Von D. Oh and she also did a whole range of looks with Jeffree Stars Eye shadows ,So this was very useful for me . Also I like how her videos never go on and on and on with chat as some times that is to much with me. Simple straight to the point videos and great make up. Sometimes she will do other kinds of videos but make up ones are more her thing.

The next make up channel I follow is AtLeeeey
I enjoy her videos and make up get ready with mes. I used to follow her more as she used to use a lot of lime crime products but then stopped. I don't watch her as much as I used to but she is worth checking out.

 I do follow many other make up channels such as Dupe That, Jeffree Star , Laura Lee and Manny MUA but the above are the channels I really like the best for different reasons but I think each one can bring something to the table for viewers.

Who do you like to watch on youtube?!

Kawaii Life but am a Alternative girl


So it has been like a minute... I have had some ups and downs over the past wee while. Processing the of late labels that now are part of the House of Tartan ,so I took some time out . Pretty much I have been only been active on Instagram, which seems to be my go to at the moment . Even shut off chat on facebook for some headspace. Last time I did anything for my you tube channel was for a gaming festival/ Lego convention and then it has been left to sit and well do nothing. 

So..What's new? well not much to be honest with you all, a few things is that am now trying to support some UK online shops such as Alluraura and Flame-Lilly . Alluraura have a check out discount code TARTAN15 so save some pennies guys! (Disclaimer I do not earn any commission on any of my codes!) Am not doing much else .



It has been a month since I spoke about nugoth fashion and yuh I get it am the last to get on that train but now that it has been a month of dressing and styling myself in this fashion . I really like it . Don't yall go running thinking that I have left Kawaii lol! Naw I adore my kawaii life and lifestyle but nugoth and grunge is for sure the way I like to dress and something am wearing in comfort. I like mixing these 2 things, styles, together. It has been fun. I guess when every one things that once you start dressing one way or a other you are to like make everything about that. But I just can not tear myself away form my kawaii life . I am discovering that there is a lot of kawaii even in goth/scene/alternative niche fashions . Am I slipping into more dark vibes and stuff? I honestly think its more my fashion  cause it just fits so well ..however I am thinking its all more alternative styles than like pure goth- white face and black lippy only. I mean, I still pick up pink and then I pick black haha! I think its totally cool to have dark vibes mixed with the cute . I mean we don't have to all fit inside a fashion or style box . There is no stopping me falling head over heels with Pusheen , Kitty and Rilakkuma! Nor is there no stopping me buying kawaii stuff so I would say I have maybe matured in style? Who knows.





 I even been looking at spreading my wings out with make up shades , I even wore blue eye shadow the other day *gasp* and for once in my life it worked , I did not look like a 6 year old who broke into some naff teen aged marketed blue powder. Lmao!!  I picked up 2 eye shadow pallets from NYX cosmetics feeling brave picking those blue tones and cool tones. I do feel nervous when I use the colours but I have been looking to my favourite ig accounts and you-tubers for inspiration and even looking at more nugoth / grunge videos to go with my new style. I have to say that the new eyeshadows are really nice and easy to blend and use. I recommend them. I might make a blog post of a list of those I follow and find inspiring at a later date.

Anyway just a short post of my rambles and musing. Will try and post something more of interest later.

Cute Squishy Review!

Kawaii Cute Squishys!

Normally when I think of squishies - I think of cute small stress ball charms but I was very delighted to see that the new online shop over at  www.cutesquishy.com  has many sizes, styles and different kinds! It is a squishy fans heaven.  They have so many to pick from and I have a few to show you from the ones that I got in the mail. As these were sent to me I can not say how easy it is to check out on the website. However when I was on the website it was very easy to find products and navigate around the website too. It is also a very clear and cute looking website.
So I got a few squishies to show you all!

Really a Princess

Yuno as I write this I sure do not feel like a princess. 
Am in sweat pants and a jumper okay the jumper is baby pink and cute as possible while I nurse myself with some dreaded Con Flu . Which is why I have some time to blog about this. 

My newest adventures of late have been becoming a Princess, Well a cosplay/ costume princess. Years ago I never dreamed of putting of puffy full sized over the top dresses. But it did happen thanks to meeting my cosplay sister last year. And then we had this crazy idea of doing more Princesses together.

Barry M Haul / Review

As some of you cuties now, I do love the high street brand , found in most boots and super drug stores. Barry M. I saw that they have a few new products that clearly needed to be tried and tested. I raised an eyebrow to the new lipstick liquid to matte kits. As you all know I adore a good liquid matte, so had to give that a whirl, while I was at it I picked up my normal Barry M make up items and thought why not throw together a haul/ review on them...
So lets check out the items and my over all thoughts on what I think of them.

In Disney Paris in Kawaii style 2017


Getting up at the crack of dawn did not seem so bad when booking the holiday. At least it means getting more time of day one in the park when arriving! After running around checking all is in order getting a last minutes large case cause I just knew - I would need more space!  All outfits planned out for both us girls and that extra space to buy some Disney jumpers  or clothing - see what did I say about needing the larger case. It was a case of hop in the car, on a bus, on a plane, on a bus and thank goodness - we got in the hotel checked in, dumped out stuff and hit the park, well as quickly as possible can be a task as our room was so far off and it was a maze getting from the room to exit hahaha.




Any way... Welcome to the most magical place in the world. Leave your worries at the entrance and enjoy the magic of Disney!
