A catch up and Insomnia Scotland

Ahhh. I forgot to post about one of my most exciting event this year! -My bad.

Any way back in April, I went to the 1st Insomnia Gaming festival in Scotland. Which was rather exciting. I never done a Gaming festival before and I had been invited by the cosplay team as a Judge for the cosplay masquerade and community guest.  It was such a huge event and took up all the space at the events place at EICC in Edinburgh.
I was in cosplay, There was a fair few others in cosplay also. I was both Sailor Moon and Asuna from Sword Art Online. I also had a personal photographer with me the full weekend and did lots of photo shoots. As well I was playing , trying ans testing out lots of games. I also was on stage with the rest of the cosplay crew and we did a panel on Cosplay . And  I also met some new folks and hung out with fellow cosplayers. I really enjoyed my time at the event and I have a vlog and video on my you tube for you all to check out. As I kinda forgot of all the stuff that went on you can check it out on those!




As well I have been busy with a few other things, Such as modelling wigs from the amazing UK kawaii fashion store Cutesty Kink!   And am still working my way through the shoots and images of such cute and harajuku style like wigs. Which as so worth checking out. Also I have been working on some clothing model work with Cutesy Kink as well. Something I have not done before- As I only did wigs in the past! So it was a learning curve for me.
So I had fun with cute tops and jumpers that look like they have come right off the streets of Harajuku and the other stuff is the Pusheen range of cute and adorable tops! Which every thing is so cute and super soft when worn.



What else is new with me? Well not very much apart form modelling and indulging in Kawaii fashions and make up. School has been pretty demanding and with meetings and appointments so I really not had much time to get anything else sorted. However am in hope to get some more blog posts up for you all really soon and share kawaii stuff with you all . So this is a pretty short and sweet post!

So am gona catch you guys later!
Later Kawaii Crew

Oh wait we are talking about my blog right?  Back up , Back up to the part of being a blogger bit , that is true. As for the rest...not so much.

Having a Kawaii blog -Life Lessons

Of late , I have had many of you ask questions, from should I start a blog to how can I be as popular as you. I felt ,I should maybe do some kind of post of guidance or hints and tips . Maybe it would make life easy for the rest of you. But giving some one hints and tips is all fair and well but really in my personal opinion blogs are a personal thing and it can become a over night hit or like my blog take 2-3 years to even be noticed in the big world wide web of the internet. So I thought I would blog about well..  my blog  and maybe answer those questions you sent me.


When I started my blog, it was so bad! I cringe to think about all the emojis I used and animated .gifs I some times use text ones tho! ^^; Thinking about those really bad photos that were filling up my side bar with useless crap. haha. Am so glad my blog has well...matured.
Over time I invested in myself - no one wants to see a sloppy blog with borrowed art work and looks all a bit over the top. 
Which is why, I decided to invest in myself getting a wonderful artist for a start and with her help given the Blog its now 2nd make over.  I cut out a lot of the small un-readable text and made things clearer and cleaner looking but still super cute! ( But of course!) Am so in love with my doughnut themed blog right now!  I think having a clean easy read blog is the basics for making a good blog others might want to read.



Why did you start a blog?-  I started my blog for fun, it's my hobby , I never expected any one to read it or get seen.

I try to keep my topics in a nice amount of range because sometimes blogging about the same thing can be dull but to give it a overall thing, I just its about my personal Kawaii lifestyle and sharing it. I never ever expected any one to read my blog or take an interest unless it was a reviewed item that was on trend at the time. My blog is my Hobby - I think you must work very hard to make it a profitable income. Since I started my blog and been blogging I maybe have have about 10% of reviews or features sponsored to me. I get many a time of others asking things such as

 - Do you get free stuff all the time?-
 -Do you get paid in items/products ect ect?-

The simple answer is no.
No not  all the time.If I do get sponsored at all, my sponsored items are time for time ( a term used a lot in modelling too.) . Its like a exchange of each others trade. Meaning if I review the item or product ( my trade )sponsored by a company and once they get the review then I am allowed to keep the product ( their trade) after the assignment.



-How do you get sponsored?-


Haha, Well if any one has the answer here feel free to let me in on it. As I rarely am sponsored I can not really answer this, However contacting companies and asking if they run affiliate programs or are looking for blogger's is one way to start. However you might want to think very carefully on the way you ask and make sure to apply to a company that fits your blog and self. I mean I would never review body piercing or plugs jewellery as I don't have any piercings or the need for plugs - so I can not really review them! Or Say you have a blog about Cats and you then ask a Make up company for Make up but your blogs all about pet cats. It is very likely the company will not be interested in you. 
When you do contact companies it is worth to take the time and come across as polite and hard working. Also this is also important to make sure your blog looks good to a company. Also do not get upset if a company never gets back to you or refuse you. It's okay just pick your self up and try again!

-Should I start a blog and where should I start?-

I don't see why not , many have blogs and website's , If you think you can devote the right amount of time to a blog then go for it! Picking a blog host might take a of time to research such as blogger or wordpress. Pick something you like the look of and find easy to use. And Blog about the things that you like and interest you. Also take your time on the blog and make it yours , keep it original and fun to read.

-Do you have any tips to share?-
Enjoy your blog, but also go out and do things, its easy to be like omg- need to do a blog post and forget about going out. Live your life and fill it with wonderful things then you can blog about it and share. And also try and link up other social media formats to your blog and have them listed for your readers to find you on other formats such as twitter and instagram. Its a handy thing to have too. Do not get upset if you have not as many followers or readers as others, It's just a number at the end of the day. It really do not mean much in the real world.

Tartan Kawaii in DisneyLand


Hey guys, am back. well I was not away very long but it me it felt like I have been away a life time, I have started 2015 with some Disney magic and adventure.

 I and my little family went to the wonderful world of Disney- A dream I have had since I was a kid. Though mind you I was a complete kid while I was at Disney. But then I think every one is who goes to Disney. I went to Disney Euro in Paris and had a mission to meet many characters and get many photos as possible. Donald Duck being high up on my list! 
I love Donald Duck.
So I could go on and on about how much fun and exciting the place is but am not going to, am gona be honest.... THE PLACE IS FRIGGEN AMAZING! I really loved it, however with taking Chibi bean it had a lot of draw backs from long waits with grumpy child or a hungry child or a child throwing a tantrum..oh wait. No that was me throwing the tantrum on the way home cause I really did not want to leave. lol

I think my highlights were just being there, hunting down and finding Donald duck and getting a photo with him. Meeting both Mickey Mouse and Minnie and being able to buy lots of cute things to add to my kawaii collecting. As well as spending lots of time together with my little family and having fun.
So here are some of my phone photos ones I took.

Lime Crime-Kawaii make up review

Ah finally, getting round to a new review blog post yay!

So this posts review is about my latest purchase of products by Lime Crime. A product that is made in the USA and known for its bright colourful shades and tones. I have come across Lime Crime in the past and always liked the look of the brightly  products but never really got around to purchasing them -manly because I didn't know if I could in the UK or not. However in the end I did realise I could get the products on ebay and a few UK online make up shops or just ordering from Lime Crime in the USA its self. So far I have tried all these methods and not had any issues with shipping or such. So I know if I can not get it on one of these ways I can with a other.- great stuff.
So what did I get?!
The 1st product I ordered was one of the Velvetines, I picked the pink one as the red one was out of stock everywhere or I had to play way over the odds for one! But I like pink and wanted to try it- I heard a lot about this product about how amazing it is and how bright and colourful the shades are.
I also heard and read many reviews on how long lasting the product were when on the lips which really took my interest. Also the Velvetines are a Gloss product that dry into a matt once on.
I was super over the moon when I item came and I fell in love with the product packaging and the product itself. I knew from that point I had to get myself some more of the Velvetines. I now have the following , Pink Velvet, Utopia and Red Velvet. And I love them all.

Why do I like these? I love the long lasting colour, I barely have to touch up my lip make up as its like the stuff is bullet proof , Kiss proof and compared to other bright colours there was barely a trace of any left lip mark on my mugs of tea or on toast! I love the colours and the fact its a matt finish. I also noted they had a nice scent to them as well.I did find it was hard to get them perfectly lined with the brush that they come with so I use a lip brush to outline my lips when I use these. I am not personally keen on shiny gloss looks on my lips so these are perfect for me!Moving on to the other products I ordered 3 Unicorn lipsticks in the end, I really wanted to try them to see how they matched up to the Velventines.





 The colours I ordered were, Airborne unicorn which is a purple - Lavender shade. Centrifuschia  which is a fushica like pink shade. The other one being Pink Planet which is more of a baby pink pastel shade.Pinks and reds are more my sort of colours but I found the ones I have got in the past have not being bold in colours even in a pastel shade so I wanted to test these out to see if I get the shades I wanted on my lips.The 1st time I tried them I fell in love with Centrifuschia I love the colour and it applied well, don't need to much colour might I add to get this shade in its full glory.As for the others well its a bit of a love hate feeling with Airborne unicorn, I personally love the look of it but am not sure if I really suit it, I feel its a bit weird in tone on my lips I did find if I apply it very lightly I get a better tone but its a hard one to use, -just my thoughts there or I am not applying it right! haha! Again seems to be the same with the pink planet all the pastel shades maybe? But again applying them lightly seems to work well .All of the lipsticks are all scented in a lovely vanilla smell. Over all I do like these but have to really apply with care and thought. 


The last item I got was a eye liner in reason a slivery glittery shade its a lovely eyeliner and glides on with ease when used. Its not very noticeable but then I have not really used it for a over all look yet. I would love to try 2 other shades one being blue milk and a purple shade one. I will be trying out the new Venus Palette full of really nice shades of eye-shadows that took my interest- I hunted high and low for other brands offering same kinds of shades but nothing has turned up close so I went ahead to treat myself to this so am rather excited.

Over all what do I think of the products? I think you get a lovely kawaii looking product that gives lovely shades and a variety of bright bold and pastel shades, they might not be for every one. I guess I might buy some other shades in the Velventines as they are my fave so far. I do find they are quite pricey but not as crazy as high end priced brands. I would like to see new shades and variety. I would recommend the Velventines over the lipsticks personally. I do however love my purchased products so far! 


What do you think of these products- should I do a video review on these? Do any of you want to see these on me then check out my Instagram here !!

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

What's in your Bag, A Kawaii Mummy Post!

Hello every cutie!
Hope you all  seen doing well! Nya! So I thought I would do a fun post, I've seen these on you tube and other formats of media and thought I would give it ago . huhuh! Am the type of person to like to have a range of bags for different things so I will give you a run through on the ones I used the most! 

My first bag is my cute personal bag which is not used as often, I used this bag with my close friends, itsoften a smaller bag that only fits my must needs. Which contains the following of my house keys, phone and purse. Yep- I only use this if we are shopping or a day trip out. Maybe if am not straying to far from the house , I might use it. Or heading to the movies with my friends. I would use the likes of my cartoon 3D bag or some thing like a clutch bag .  Or if I really want to show off I will pick some thing bright or fancy like my loungefly bag. (Love that bag!)

The next bag  would be my bag I used the most which is often my larger sized bags or a tote shopper style bag, those bags are great, right!? I guess I would call this the Kawaii Mummy bag  I really do like my handbags hehe. These are only some of them mind you. Most are the shopper style which helps get everything inside for what am needing . I like my bags to look fun cute and quirky so am always looking for cute new bags! (shh don't tell the hubby! ' I have enough bags...said no woman ever!)  I will used these shopper bags a lot  they are much more cuter looking that plastic bags, so I tend to used these when I need to pop out and get some stuff from the local shop.

When it comes to events I will be using these bags or my more smaller ones, maybe some bags will go with my inspired outfits too,( watch this space!) but they will be teamed up with my Camera bag.  I have not found a super kawaii looking camera bag yet- I need one that is super safe to use for my camera to keep it from damage when travelling.

So what do I keep in my Bags? 
Well because am a Mummy I have
to be on the ball! Ready for any thing well as much as I can be lol.

Well here we go, First off in my bag I have my personal items one being my Kawaii cute looking Purse- I love using this purse, its so colourful and bright. It seems to soften the blow when I spend my money  I also carry my Phone in my bag or on me when I have pockets!
I also  have a small compact mirror, A pen that is both red and blue ink, very handy to have one in my bag, I have My Dairy which I need alot with all these events and dates and a small note book which was a gift form a Fan! Its super handy to have a note book at hand when am out and about. I also have my 'Baby' Lip colour balm. All us yummy kawaii mummy's still need a treat of make up right!? I also keep pair of finger-less gloves cause its still pretty cold-ish weather. What else?
Oh I keep a book on me for the times at play group when none of the friendly mummy's are not there and handy to have a book on the train too to keep me busy.


Because Chibi bean is more of a toddler than a baby now she is over 3 she no longer needs bottles. So what I have in my Kawaii Mummy bag will be things I take such as a change of clothing if am taking her some where that is a good ride away.
What I don't have shown also is the juice cup I bring about with me you can never be over prepared, haha and some very important  bribe   treats in my bag too. hehe.  I have a few spare pull up pants for chibiThese are a must have in case of accidents! Baby wipes are also very important too, Any mummy can tell you that they are very handy to have. From wiping messy hands to those awkward moments when you find yourself in a public toilet with no toilet paper!  Gah!
Oh also the last item that I have in my bag is that funny looking green thing, which is a jungle themed fold away potty lid/seat, A few weeks back we were caught short and Chibi did not like the idea of using a adult size potty and refused to use it. So I hunted high and low for something to take on the go! It's a clever idea, you just unfold it and place it over the toilet. Sorted! It is also super light weight to pop into my hand bag, even better!

Well I hope you at least found my post some what interesting or amusing with the random things I have in my handbag! huhuh.
Enjoy the rest of your day cuties!

Tartan <3
