Cherry blossom weekend

Hey every cutie . How are you to day?
 Thought I would share with you what I got up to this weekend.
 I got my self some cute new pieces for my wardrobe and made sure that they can be mixed and matched for the summer months too! I was quite happy these came for this weekend.

Some new lippy stick by BarryM and new mascara which I picked up in blue by mistake! Silly me.But I have been using both the Red lippy and Blue lash statement , I really like having blue eyelashes hehe.



Hopeful for summer. Sunglasses in the shape of Hearts, A tartan dress and new red blazer, I seem to have a thing for red right now.

I seem to have a few more kawaii hauls still in the post so I will post about them when I get them too. But I wore my new Tartan dress at the weekend when I met up with a local lolita friend. We really just spend the day wondering about looking for some Sakura trees and made a stop in at the Cutie shop. A tiny little shop of Kawaii-ness, ( I really need to ask next time, to take photos of inside the tiny shop!).



Yummy treats and some Kawaii goods of Domo and Rilakkuma.






The Meadows were in full bloom and looked stunning . There was a lot of others taking photos and videos of the cherry blossoms. I guess they will not last much longer the wind has blown them about .

Hope you enjoyed the Cherry blossom photos !

A bit of a Geeky Weekend .

Hey every Cutie,
How are you all? Last weekend I went to a Edinburgh Convention called '' Something Bl**dy Awsome''.
It was a small convention to what am used to. However it was a interesting one as it was all Sci-Fi and Super Heros.
I went along for out of sheer nosiy-ness and two, Photos. To my own disappointment, I did not get as many Photos as I wanted but the day I went.However it seems that the following day was some what more busy. Oh well. There was only a few or a handful of Cosplayer's and again they were all Sci -Fi ones or Hero's. And am more of a anime gal. So it was a bit awkward for me.
I ended up meeting a other photographer who I got chatting to which ended up chatting to for a good few hours.So I did enjoy myself. Maybe I needed to come later on in the day or try the following day for photos. But you do not know what these things are like until you get there. I was to meet my friends once I been to the event as we planned to go Geo- Cacheing. Yea it was a bit of a geeky weekend haha!
So with both of my friends armed and set with the GPS and their coordinates, We went hunting to find these Cache's. We got a only a few of them as 2 we could not find . This was my 1st time doing this and really just tagged along. I have a feeling we might head back to find more in Edinburgh.
While we happen to be near by a Cake shop called Bibi's .I got myself a really yummy Cup cake to eat on the way home and and a bunch of HUGE Macaroons in a box to take home( for family.Huhuh... I don't like not returning empty handed and kawaii-less haha!
Any way I thought I would share with you the photos I took- So please do enjoy them!

Kawaii Easter ideas!

Hey every cutie!
Its almost Easter time, where all the shops decorated with spring themes, Easter eggs and chocolate sections are full to the brim and fashion goes to pastel shades.

There is a spring in our step and finally we can feel like wearing cute skirts and tops. Yay! Rabbits Chicks and baby animals are easy to find at this time of year and most of all baby animals are Kawaii .So here are some Easter Kawaii ideas for you all.

Lets being!
Easter decorations, what is else is super cute to dress up your bedrooms and rooms around the house.
I love those flag buntings you can either make or buy with ease. They can be both used for in doors and outside.


You can also be super creative with these as well why not make hanging Easter egg shapes, bunnies or maybe even some cute chicks to have on your bunting instead.

If bunting is maybe not your thing then why not  try stinging decorative kawaii spring items on some string or thread and have them hanging from a window or wall too.

As well as Decorating the house you can easily paint eggs with little ones over the easter holidays to keep them busy and have some fun. Why not make your Easter painted eggs into your kawaii characters from Sanrio and San-X.
Am sure you can come up with very cute and kawaii ideas for painting the eggs, these will make a cute centre piece on the table when you have guests over for Easter Sunday lunch.

Also did you know that you can get cute Easter themed Kawaii goods that you can give as gifts to your loved ones and kawaii friends! 
Yep you can find likes of Hello Kitty, Rilakkuma and friends dressed up as the Easter Bunny and even a spring chicken, Kyaaa Kawaii!
What a great gift to give to some one.

Other ideas can be baking , Every one seems to like or enjoy baking at Easter, hot cross buns and many other things too, but you can make those just as Kawaii as anything else. From turning your normal cupcake into a Easter cupcake nest of mini eggs to making your own Kawaii Bunny shaped macaroons! Kyaa!

Oh and dont for get about wrapping up and presenting your gifts and displays with cute coloured gift wrap and picking cute Easter greeting cards too. Or why not have a shot at making your very own Easter bunny rabbit envelopes and letters with the use of Origami and picking pretty paper to leave a lasting impression for all your friends and family!
(You can use the bunny making evelopes as a skill for any birthdays and celebrations too, as they go down a treat like any other hand made gift.) *nods*


Have a Happy Kawaii Easter every one!

SassyNpunk

Sassy N punk is a online Boutique.
I love there colourful stuff and with my soft spot for Sailor moon who can not resist a good look on what they have to offer! I have been looking at all their things and loved so many Kawaii products that are loud colourful and different to some of the UK online shops.I like to vary my Kawaii stuff.
>__<

You will find sassyNpunk here and I highly recommend that you check the out,I have seen a few things I really liked,Though I am a child in a candy shop when it comes to Kawaii products but One product caught my eye that really is cute 

I ordered this necklace.
There is a reason why I fell in love with it is these Macaroon's are quite popular in France and with my other half being in jersey it was his folks that were telling me all about them  when they were in France and I have been allured by them ever since to maybe this is why I got this one in the end.


When I opened it up I was like a child all giggly inside and loved the attention to detail of the Macaroon the outer of it being smooth and a Gem on it and The edging having the detail of a Real Macaroon.


.The inside or Filling I should say has glittery mini gold balls and one large Gem in it and is in the perfect whipped filling shape its just Magic!
*^o^*
~Can you tell I am impressed?!



It came on a pretty shiny Ball style chain and its quite sturdy,It needs to be with my little Chibi bean with her grabby hands.
¬.¬'

And There is actually some weight the product,But I am glad cause that way I would notice if my lil Macaroon was to be lost and lets hope that never happens cause I would be very sad.The shipping also took about 15-18 days and was not expensive at all and the website was easy to use thought sometimes I felt like I had to dig through all the Kawaii stuff but in a good way!


I already have a Great idea for a shoot for this to be in with my outfit and accessories so sassyNpunk Watch this space!

*wink's*


The other things I really loved from sassyNpunk was this necklace that was done in Kanji and means Beautiful in Japanese and this other one that you get it made with your name !
