Super Cute things coming this way.

Hi~Hi !
So with some changes to my accounts and social networking pages,You may have noticed Ive changed my name on some thing's.
I've taken up a new nick name ''Tartan Kawaii!''
Cute huh?
It goes well with me being Scottish and Tartan can be really cute if you can dress it up like I did in the past with my Gothic Loli (Lolita) Outfit.

So there seems to be a lot going on,Currently I am selling off some things that I no longer need as at the back of my mind there is a chance of moving away from where I am know to some where closer to the Hubby's Work  so I want to make a fresh start even if its not for a while yet its always good to have a good clear out to then make room for new and Kawaii things!

Also  I did find out that in that area there are Scottish Lolita's who meet up there about's so that's really great I joined up on their group on Facebook to get to know some of them and they are so sweet!
(Thank you to all of those kind girls whom have welcomed me x)


So over at my Facebook page Kawaii Kreations is has been renamed Tartan Kawaii and I am know a ''public figure''.
Sounds important hehe.
I will be doing lots of new and exciting things for the page and for my blog,after doing the video review and getting lots of nice comments form every one I think I will be doing lots more.Even thought Im sorta blushing at the thought of it.

I was asked if any one wanted to see how I do my make up and there seems to be an interest in this,so watch out for that space,The other topics on the page are Wigs.
I love my wigs,And Asked my likers on the page what wig I should go for I have narrowed it down to 2 wigs one from GLW and one From the Lock Shop but then this morning I found out that Lock shop have new wigs coming in...DRAMA!
Okay That is no not fair I was so close to getting a new wig  with a well long thought out choice and picked one for you to do this to me!!

;__;
*cries a little*

Know I have to wait thanks to you Lock shop just so I can see your newest wigs to then be back at square one again over picking one!
*grr*
¬.¬'
Love the lock shop!

So I think I will do something fun on my Facebook page with the wigs and I have some reviews to coming up and cute findings to show you all.



so stay supa Kawaii 
Tartan.

Miss Pixie_Late

You may have come across the Lovely Pixie_Late in my Blog before .
Pixie_Late a well known Lolita Model and spokes Model for Gothic Lolita Wigs.
Some of you know I am a bit of a Fan of her's.I Found her through Facebook and Lolita pages on the web while searching for my own Ideas for outfits,make-up and hair.
What I like about her is that she can create a range of Lolita looks and is always find new and inspiring ideas for her other outfits and is so well presented is like she waved a magical wand on her outfits utterly magic.
No wonder she is so popular!

Pixie_Late has been promoting other things other than Wigs,Roxie Sweet hearts Items and keep it secret have her modeling their products of Hello Kitty Glasses and she is a Hyper Japan fashion consultant & Founder of Frills and Frolics on Face Book.She also Has done a small interview on Mode Lolita.

What I like is the fact Pixie_late is not always Dressed up every single day and do not wear a Wig in every 
photo showing that she is a down to earth and pleasent Lady ans she is such a natural beauty!
I can so see her doing this for many many years to come as she has clearly been blessed with young looks!


When I contacted her to ask for permission to use her Photos she worte the nicest message back to me and she liked what she saw on my Blog 
*^__^*

All Images belong to Pixie_late.


I love the above photo of Pixie_late she looks like a Flower maiden of Spring with Her lovely bunny Rabbit,she loves Rabbits.

''I find modelling and spreading love for Lolita fashion is something I'd like to continue to do even with I other commitments outside of the fashion because it's something I'm passionate about. I think if you put your heart in anything you do, it'll be rewarding to both yourself and your audience so keep doing what you love.''
Such kind and wise words !
I do like seeing her in a new wig and outfit  its a surprise every time and she is just the Cutest thing! 
So I thought I would share some of her Model work.


Flower Girl she is just so cute!



She suits these pastel colours so well



She is a complete Princess in this photo.




Adorable



A hint of Gothic in this photo and I think this wig is so cool.



I adore this outfit and I have the same Wig arrive the other day.


In nature and can so suits being a blonde.


Winter Photos


I love this outfit and think she should do lots more Gothic Outfits soon!

Miss Pixie_late has her own Blog so you can keep up with her here!
And on her Face Book page.

Stay Kawaii x

My Lolita Outfit

Oh I have been bouncing off the walls even since I got my new skirt in the post the other day and dying to put it on and skip through the fields of flowers and under Cherry Blossom's gently falling around me as I walk beneath them...
Okay maybe not quite as the weather will not make its mind up with these pesky showers and Gloomy black clouds trying to rain on me. *shakes Fist at the weather*

Any how I still wanted to at least try out my new skirt,Which I got off of Ebay for under £20 inc postage I fell in love with it right away.


Here are some close ups of the print which are Poodles I love how its got a French feel to it.


And the Bow


I went more for the Skirt as to a dress as a skirt you can Dress down as I am more of a Weekend Lolita Fan    where I tend to Dress up at the weekend where I get the time to do so as during the week it can be a interesting task with Chibi bean,Chibi bean is at the stage of not wanting to stay still and in to everything and anything.
So while she had her nap I took the chance and created my outfit

Im a bit gutted as it was not till later I saw the blouse is a tad tight looking.
 ; __ ;
I forget that I am a bit more busty these days 
*Blush*


My old bow tied in nice with the outfit I have my jeans on in this one above.


This is with out the Extra Hair.


Stay Kawaii x

Lolita on a Budget (Part 1)

This whole week has been gloomy and rainy,Im quite gutted about it with the April showers and even Hail!
>w< 
What on earth is that all about?
This Blog entry is about getting this Lolita look but at a lower costing price! 
This Entry was sparked by some one saying how expensive Lolita outfits are and its very true and sad news for us having to ship and order over seas as the postage adds even more to the price! *tear*

So how can we get around this.

One idea is get into the Lolita community its rather hard to with being Scottish but if you look on the web for Lolita groups online and forums its a good start and get talking to them,I found a few on Facebook under the groups in a search.They may have some hints and tips for you and your hunt for Lolita goods at a lower cost.
I had to search myself  and on a budget I came across enchanting online shops that ship from Japan but the price was so high!

So I looked at what I was looking at and thought can I make it /some one else or can it be broken down into something more simple?
Then I headed over to a few Lolita models/Idols and looked at the outfits in a new way,What are they doing to create the looks,I noticed a few would have the same dress on or skirt and would team it up with other tops or wear it in a different way by adding a jacket or change the other items colour theme.Looking at the tops and dresses I then  looked online at your normal high street shops and found a simple version which cost a lot less!

So lets this dress here its black and white and classic looking.
This Dress is from here but I don't want to spend about £40 on it so lets make it our own,
A lot of Lolita actually make a lot of there own stuff on a side note.

So here is how I would do,Look at the shapes and the details and then remove them in your mind or you could use Photoshop here (I use GIMP btw).
The Dress could pass as a Skater Dress which seem to be in at the moment in the shops so you can get one rather easy and cheap.
For Example :New Look



And its only £11.99 see here.


Yes I know its not every Lolita like but take that Brown belt off and purchase a high neck Blouse like the one form Kate's Clothing,with the dress on top you will get the Pinny style dress look of a Lolita.

You could use a White or a Black depending on the style you are after.
You can also get very low priced Blouses more a less anywhere or you could try a Vintage shop,charity shop and Gothic shops for a blouse with more detail.


The Bow Can be very simple to make with Ribbon or again you can find oversize bows made at Esty,Esty has a lot of treasures to find.All You have to do is add the bow to the blouse make sure its nice and big.


Lets take a other look at the Lolita Dress,Which has Lace around the Neckline,Hem and Shoulders,Know if your a dab hand with the sewing machine not a problem or if you are like me and can not use on to save my own life then its best asking some one or going to a tailor shop to help.

All you would need to do is get a Lace material  from a fabric shop or a Craft hobby shop they would have such things and attach it to you skater dress.


Then you can team it all up with Bows,Ribbons,Hair Pieces and Jewellery and really make your new outfit your own and best thing is no one will have the same as you because you made yours your self! Its Kind of Easy once you know how.

Gothic, lets make it Cute

As I still have a fond love for Gothic stuff becoming a Gothic Lolita is rather easy to achieve in outfits,one of my liked shops is a shop called Kate's clothing Which is in the UK.

What I do really like about this online shop is its range,It is more Gothic Retro than others but I like that because the items are colourful and not all Gloomy black.
I have ordered ,well My hubby has for me,which I got the pink and black Petite coat skirt and this Gothic Top.I had no problems with ordering from them and the dispatch was also quick and those whom know me well I hate waiting! ^__^''

The Range of stuff is Great  Corsets,Dresses,Punk,Retro,Gothic,Romantic,Emo, Steam-punk and with this kind of range for both Men and Women then add the range of Accessories of leg warmers tights, Jewellery,outdoor accessories  umbrellas and hair dye there is something for every one.
So I had a good look at what they had to offer and picked a few things I thought would work and you could add to your closets with Gothic pieces that would create a new look!

I thought this would be great for a Casual top teamed with a cute black and white skirt below to make a semi cheeky Gothic outfit.

Then I found this dress and thought it was the cutest thing ever!

Its got a cherry and fruity print its so sweet and great for summer for a Sweet Lolita or a retro kind of girl!
And this one too for a more Gothic look!

there are so many things Id love to show you but we will be here all day!
so finally one of the things I have set my heart on is this...

I love this top and it would be perfect with any skirt or to put under a dress for any Lolita style its simple but its so pretty with its lace and high neck even the slightly puff arm sleeves,oh and at the back its go a lace up corset style design *LOVE* so I would wear it with a skirt.
Take a look at the back.


I recommed that you have a look at Kate's Clothing where you can zoom into the photos (handy) and see the prints more clearly and see what sizes they have in store and you can easily contact them with any questions.

You can find them hear at
The online shop
and 
the link to their Facebook page.
Also they have a Press and news page so go check them out and make Gothic Kawaii!

Outfits and Family

So its only just Monday and with the power of Ebay I have purchased 2 Lolita Skirts
Yay!
One is a Pink and Black Lolita Gothic Style skirt a part of if in the same colours as Tartan,Which I am very excited about because its my all time favourite colours pink and black and Gothic.Also some one has suggested  its fitting with be being a Scottish Girl and that I should be know as the Tartan Lolita >w< 
The other skirt is a lilac and Poodle Dog print one that utterly cute I hope it fits either that I'm going have to cut out eating so much junk!It was a fight to win this one but My last Tarot Reading has paid for this skirt and my hubby (Bless him <3) got the other one for me and each of them for under £20!
Which leaves me only to get some pretty blouses and I can create some Lolita looks which my be interesting as I want to get a white and black one with a high neck and a bit of lace ekk! 
This may prove hard to find here and with a low price!
The other thing I have purchased is a a new wig from Gothic Lolita Wigs! *^__^* yes the one I was on about a few Blogs back well they had a 20% off and I could not say no to that! However I am vowing not to spend any more money know I won that Lilac Skirt >__<''
But will do a Review on the wig once it comes I got a email saying it was dispatched!
(*^__^*)

Mondays are when I take Daughter (whom kept me up most of last night we were both in tears cause we were both so tired) to see My Gran (her Great Gran),
As my Gran has become house bound I see it as my duty to at least visit her each week,She did do a lot for me but its my turn to give back to her with Visit from myself and Chibi Bean and Ill go make her a Cup of Tea and have a bit of cake together its nice,I like spending time with her even though it brakes my heart when I seen her age so much and become house bound.
I gave a lending hand while Chibi Bean played with the Fridge magnets,I did Gran's Dishes and made her dishwasher a bit more user friendly as she had to put the cutlery in a stupid way and left her standing for so long I hate her to have a fall  with bending over so much so I sorted it for her making it a little more easier for her.
I think she still see's me as a Little girl and forgets I am a mother (Bless) I actually wish I could do so much more for her but I do not drive making things take twice as long when I travel via Public Transport or ask others for lifts!  >__<''

So when I get my skirts and outfits made up I will get some pictures up of them,May even ask my Photographer to do a shoot with some Cherry blossoms that would be so cute!

Here is some Pictures I took of a new Kitty Item I found in the supermarket mega block Kitty!

Hidden in the shadows

Happy Friday the 13th!
 *@__@*  I do not see this day as unlucky ( a superstition before the 19th century) I think is Lucky for me with being pagan  we see it as a magical date,thirteen has a strong association with the moon and there are thirteen lunar cycles each year.
So I thought Id tie my Blog Entry of my Kawaii Finding with a Alternative shop that happens to be in Scotland *^__^*but not only that its online too! 

And I have found some Goodies to share with you and even some Gothic Lolita Looking Dresses are you Excited? 
I am!

The Lovely Lady that Runs Gothica Jewels Contacted me and said.

How Kawaii is this very Gothic Lolita and its only £30*! A Cute mini Lolita Dress!


This one is a eye catcher! I love the Tartan Look and team this one up with a Black high neck Blouse and it would look STUNNING! *^__^* Heart this one so much it also reminds me of my Wedding day.
At only £35* its a Bargain!


This one here is £40 but Again it would team up with a pink of white blouse that would pass off a semi sweet/Gothic Lolita look its very pretty Id have to add a pink bow in the hair with this one!

Kawaii and the Cuties

So the other day My Hubby's client was asking about Facebook and how to get a Page direct like for example likes of  http://www.facebook.com/KawaiiKreation,So my hubby put in Kawaii Kreations and lots and lots of things came up,I just had to have a look at them since they were Kawaii Related!

This one here called Kawaii-and-the-Cuties came up and I had a good looky around the picture of their stuff I had to translate a few things as it was in Italian! @__@ but I have a translator so here is what I found!


 This is a cute necklace with a love heart macaroon very Lolita like!


I also come across these sweet and adoreable earrings with Kawaii little smiles


I love this new Craze of what I called Fairy Bottles but they may have a other name but I think any princess would love this! *insert Starry eyes here!*


I like this one the most and the Stars in the bottle above soo cute!
*^__^*



To order you contact the Ladies that are both Lolita's from Italy and they say... 
'We love Kawaii and one day we decided to Create a new world full of sweets,Ice-creams and colours and want to share this with other people so we created Kawaii and the Cuties.'' Marty and Jazzy. :3

I like how you can tell its Handmade and the fact these are utterly Chuuuuu Cute!
Each item is different and unique.
Some are also listed here.

Stay Kawaii x

*All Images are from Kawaii and the Cuties

Staying Kawaii with me!

Its hard work Staying Kawaii Which is why I Changed the Direction of my Blog though don't worry followers of the Craft I will still post some things regarding those topics,However up here in Scotland its extremely hard to get hold of Kawaii Stuff which can drive a Kawaii Lover mad!So I thought would try and make it Easy for not just those in Scotland to get hold of those Kawaii things out there.

Kawaii means Cute in Japanese.

Kawaii in Kanji .

Online is the best way I have found stuff but you may have to Google more that the word Kawaii as a lot will come up,Try words like Lolita,Gyaru,Kitsch,Cute,Emo,Punk and Harajuku help too.
Places like Ebay and Esty have hidden Gems but can take a long time to get through all that stuff and sorting out the good stuff from that bad again this is where I come in,I search out and hunt down Things that are Kawaii to save you the time and review or show pictures of what I got but also I want to help out those on the other side,such as the shop owners and sellers.


So going back to keeping Kawaii its hard work,I like to wear something Lolita inspired or cute looking most days and where I live right know its really hard to find that sorta stuff so I have to create my looks form scratch or spend a insane amount of money out on a real Lolita outfit and the range is very limited too!So half the time I don't even like what I do find,So have to resort to high street shops or markets to find something that even hints on a Kawaii Style, Accessories seem to be a bit easier mind you and I have gotten hold of some gems that have gotten lots of notice and complements too.
I also like the idea of home made items to mass production items when it comes to Accessories and outfits and things that you would not come across in Primark and Top shop so to say.
But they are starting to produce a lot of cute things slowly.
The other thing is I have found is that i have to Travel to big city's likes of London Glasgow and Edinburgh to get an Alternative good shop for things Kawaii and semi Gothic Lolita/Emo that happen to look very cute and would work with outfits and for around the house.Yes my kawaii-ness has spread out to the bedroom...my poor husband!

So If you are a Seller with Items/clothing/Other products that are Cute looking or smell sweet and are down right adorable then please get in touch with me as Id love to hear from you !

You just need to send the products details and information or even any give-aways that you are doing and if your really nice send me the product! 
 *Big cheesy wink*
That way  I could even write up a review of the product for you since this is like a free advertising service for Sellers and My posts get uploaded to my page on Facebook KawaiiKreations for my Likers and of course I tweet too!
You can contact me at my email marna@aurora-healing.co.uk
