Tartan's top five Kawaii Christmas Shops Guide

Hey every one! Yuno what can be super hard? Buying for a loved one or a friend who is super Kawaii , they can be super tough to buy for! So I made up a list of Kawaii items that I think would make a super kawaii gift for the Kawaii cutie that has everything already! I also have done my best to stick to UK retailers as already Christmas is sneaking right up on us! Kyaaa~

Straight in at number 5 am going to show you Kawaii Club Subscription brought to you by Keep secret , Keep it Kawaii. Based here in the UK! This is a great idea for any Kawaii lover, You can pick the kind of Subscription  you want and then get it addressed to the person to the box and every month is a surprise! With goodies all the way from Japan and from licensed companies this will not disappoint!


At number 4 check out Cutesy Kinky for a full range of Kawaii Fashion from cute fairy kei to Lolita outfits. Not only that you can find a range of cosplay and other Kawaii bits and bobs , which are great for stocking fillers and small gifts for giving. I am loving the new Kawaii Winter range full of warm cosy looking hoodies ! Not only will you stay super warm you will look super Kawaii at the same time! You can find so many cute outfits here!

In at number 3 and a personal fave shop of mine will be the lovely and cute Frilly Pops who can be found on Esty. The owner is the queen of pom poms and puts my own home made ones to pom pom shame. You can get the most adorable pom pom earring and even garlands to make any Kawaii lover fall in love with such a cute gift! From wearing them to displaying them in your very own kawaii space! These will be a hit for those who like to stand out from the crowd and are super quirky earrings to wear~ I must have at least 5 pairs of these adorable earrings!


Coming in at number 2 I decided to pick ArtBox a other  online based UK retailer and what I adore about ArtBox is the FREE shipping and little extras that you can add to your basket as a gift! Find your Kawaii Cards and items here. I have a soft spot for all the Soft toys and the Plush dolls!

And in at number 1 I am picking a small business called ILoveCrafty. A really sassy and trendy yet Kawaii online store that I have also used, I have used all the shops listed here. And I love the designs and the owners style here.  I have a few items and love them dearly. From really being a mermaid to crazy cat lady items there is something for every one. I have to admit the Donut stuff is so cute a mix of yummy food ( I love iced donuts!)  cute pastels and dash of glitter is so adorable!



I hope my small shop guide will help you with your christmas shopping guys!
Later, Tartan xox

Cute Japanese Fashion Haul review.


Hey every one, This post is a Fashion review on a parcel of goodies I got in the post. All the items are from Cute Japanese Fashion  who part sponsored me in this review.
So I put a order in on Thurday last week,and my order came a few days later (Saturday.)

 The site is easy to use and its easy to find items. I like the wish list where you heart the items and can keep them saved and then later buy them when you have the money. It's maybe too handy haha.  So I ordered 2 wigs (love wigs.) and one top and a jumper.  There is a nice selection to look and and pick from and its easy to find the stuff in your size. Most items listed on the site have been changed into UK sizes and are a range from size 6- 14.

Again the wigs are a new thing which they do not have to much of a collection but it seems to be growing each week with a few wigs added.





So here is my haul of goodies  It always exciting to get stuff in the post, I would like to point out that the wigs do come with a wig cap and they are currently being posted out to me - its nice to get good customer service! As I said I got a jumper , top and 2 wigs.


I can say the items are true to the stock images on the site , so no worries there.
As I have ordered from the store in the past, I know the stuff is pretty long lasting and one of my tops I got ages ago is still my fave one ,its a a top with stripes and a red heart on it. You most likely have seen it on facebook somewhere in my photos.

So the tops, one is a Black Milk Logo one with pink and sunny yellow paint blobs on it. Paint ball, any one? I really liked this one cause as much as I adore being all Kawaii Queen I like the street sorta look too.
Its a 3/4 sleeve top in white with the Logo and its a pretty long one in length. It is pretty thin so you could wear a tank top under it or keep it for summer days or holidays. Either way I really like it. Its Price is £10.99
I would say it s size 8-14 cause its super baggy and lots of space.


 The other item was the Jumper top. Its really cute , Its a thin jumper which is great for summer nights or those slightly chilly days, again colder months I would throw a tank top under it. Scotland is always cold. You think I would be used to the cold - haha! I love the Black little hearts all over the jumper its very cute and I feel as a Kawaii moma, I could wear this every day or causal for picking the Chibi bean up at pre-school and not stand out to much from the other mum's...(kinda haha) 
This one I would say size wise is about a 8- 12 with a bit of room to slip on a t-shirt under it. Its price is £15.99.


I also got 2 new wigs the first one is a Blonde wig its a short straight one. I liked the colour of it and its price is £10.99. Its quite a shocker being Jet black and putting on a Blonde wig. I like its style. The shade, its more of a warm blonde and its not the most natural looking shade. I have noticed all the wigs are pretty light weight and not heavy when worn. I found this wig a bit shiny for my taste and am not overly keen on the bangs/ fringe. It might just be me but am not use if it suit me at all. However is cute fun and really quirky , I would say its more a cosplay style wig, maybe. Am not sure. But for the price its a pretty cute wig.


The second wig- OMG its soo cute, I saw this one ages ago and was like , its so adorable I gotta have it!
The wig is  £17.99 the main stock image shows it in twin tails that have been plated but I can say its the same colour as the stock image baby blue and baby pink and its a lose curls style style. Again its light weight and I just love the colours . Even though its pastel shades its not as shiny as the blonde one. I have noticed the fibres are a bit thinner but at that price you can not go wrong. Talking with knowledge here as I have shed out up to £50 for wigs, I would say these wigs are well priced for the products you are getting.

So over all am super happy with my items, the service and such from Cute Japanese Fashion. I would love to see more personal touches to my orders ( but that is me being fussy haha) . It is a online store I would recommend if you are looking for some cute mature looking items and the wigs are a lot of fun too.

So here are some Kawaii photos I took with my items to let you see them worn and on.





Any way I hope you all like my blog post and I should have a video up in the next few days!

Till next time

Cute to the Core Review

Hey you cute things! Hope every one is well and oh my goodness its only 4 week's to Christmas and am so excited, cause Christmas is crazy here with it being my little girls birthday on the same day!!! Nyaa
  I know its not quite December but am itching to get my tree up and I know your all wanting to see what I plan to do to it this year as it was a White Kitty them tree last year. Teehee!!
Any way Last week I was scrolling down my Facebook news feed and came across the brand Cute to the Core, I have admired some of the stuff they have and then it hit me..by chance in the news feed showing ....The most Kawaii ...Street style... Hi top shoes... ever ...That ,I have ever laid my eyes on. Normally I sent a link to Hubby saying look!! Next think he bought them. Wait what?! Hubby never buys me anything there and then- it often takes a few days of begging,being sweet and nice for a few days- huhuh! but Hubby thought I was wanting these for my Christmas but I wanted to get a new pair of Hi tops to wear instead of only wearing my Kitty Vans. Tbh its not very Hi top wearing weather atm but I saw that they were 50% off ...And to me and in my mind these were made for me! So Hubby bought them for me as a treat for the stressful and successful achievement of getting Chibi bean potty trained. It is super hard work btw!
So these were ordered on Friday and were sent out by free shipping,and came today!
I was super excited to get my hands on them.


My parcel came in this Purple packaging which was so cool.


This is the awsum box they came in, I love Black with bright pink hehe.


The shoes were all warped up safe and sound with a extra pair of laces in Black but I love the pink ones on them already!


I love the Leopard print and pink together . Such a sucker for Leopard Print haha!
The Leopard print is furry and soft to touch.


The back of the Hi-tops have black panels on the sides and back and they are a hidden wedge style, The wedge is 4cm high, I cant walk in ''Heels'' but this is high enough for me to handle haha!


As you can see these are so Kawaii and will fit in with my personality and my style of cool J-Fashion Street styles mixed with my tastes. Am in love with these and have worn them around the house and much to my surprise they are so comfortable on! Think I have a new Fave pair of Hi tops! Cant wait for the better weather to wear these out and about!
Oh I also added my new KawaiiGoods.com Kawaii Batty clip on Accessories to the shoes too hehe!
Nyaa!

Cute to the Core has a lot of cute styles and worth checking them out!
