Be yourself with N$VNE- Review

Hey every cutie, How are you all doing . I have been working on a few projects over the past few months and the good thing is the projects are starting to come to light which is rather exciting.Just a small warning post has some bad words in the post.Normally I avoid sweary words but these are not spelt as sweary words but that aside I apologise to my youngest readers! But they are censored..kinda. Fun Fact- am actully a very bad role model cause I have a potty mouth! So sorry about that haha!
That aside I have a post that has some strong meaning, so please read on...

Last month I was contacted by a company N$VNE which is pronounced insane by the way , Got in touch with me last month asking if I would be interested in their #beyourfvckingself project.

After a while of emails going back and forth ,being in touch I agreed to work together with N$VNE. What I liked about the project is that is all about well, being yourself and doing what you love to do.


As well as the project sell affordable apparel with a range for both us gurls and for the guys. The style is simple , with meanings behind both  the designs and slogans which are pretty strong and powerful. They even made me stop and think!
''  The focus of our brand and this project is to get people back comfortable with being themselves and their own style. Not so much being caught up on the luxuries that celebrities and artist portray but the average person can not afford. Style isn't for a certain price range, it's an attitude.''

Outfit run down
Hair- CutesyKink
Top- N$VNE
Leggings - Esty
Beanie- Vixxsin

N$VNE, were kind enough to send me a #beyourfvckingself tee and a item as a gift to wear in my own style and fashion. With being introduced to the project it really made me think about style and fashion again. I started changing my own way of thinking.

Why should I dress down if its only the shop am going too?
Why should I compare myself to other social media famous folks?
 I should be my self in the styles, I like. I reminded myself - why care what others think?
Should we hide away in our styles and follow the rest of the crowd?


It really did put my mind into over drive so I started being more myself.
Like, the other day I just threw on eye liner and red lips and no other make up, and I just didn't care what the passers by would think. (my skin has been pretty bad since vacation so I wanted it to breathe but still wear my bright lippy's.)

I stopped and looked at the other styles and fashions I adore and thought, just cause am Kawaii, it do not mean I have to just be Kawaii . So I pulled out some old fashions and wore them . Even the other today I took a vintage style and rocked with with no care in the world. These other styles are part of me as well but don't Panic Kawaii is my signature look for life. 



 N$VNE also have a contest with you uploading your style with their apparel and showing it off.
I will be checking this out and seeing what other styles have been done and may even feel inspired by others who have entered!

'Be Yourself. That's the basis of N$VNE Apparel. That's our purpose and that's what we hope for your to do. With the #BeYourFvckingSelf Contest, we want you to take pictures doing what it is that you do the most. Our customers and fans are from all over the world and range from Artist to Athletes to Models to Students to Skaters and everything in between. What we would like for you to do is take a picture doing whatever it is that you love to do with a picture saying "#BeYourFvckingSelf". 

I love this idea, and I also really dig the whole Be your Self , I think its worth us all taking the time to stop and think, Am doing this for me ? Am I being me? Am I doing this to please myself. Sometimes we need to reflect .

Turning our eyes back to N$VNE .The items they have are really good and well made items. I wanted a oversize of my Tee of #beYourFvckingself and when for a M in size in the end. I could of worn a Small but I love oversize Tee's so much for style and comfort. I am a creature of comfort ! Taking of comfort the tee is easy to wear and so comfortable. The other item was some thing a bit brave on my part. A crop top . Now most of you all are aware am a mommy. And when you have gone through pregnancy it leaves you with a lot of body change's that can really effect you on different levels. With this project I realised . Those stretch marks or changes are a reminder of how amazing us humans are, to make a life. I should be proud of them and not hide them away. Hence why I was being brave.  I got my crop top in the size S . Again the top is well made, and made of soft material. Not only do I love the Project and the products from N$VNE, I found that those who run the company are really nice, enthastic and passionate about what they are doing.

So what are you waiting for my Kawaii Kittens! Its time to #BeYourFvckingself with N$VNE sign up with the news letter and get 10% off too!

Cute Japanese Fashion Winter Review


Hey everyone today's post is a sponsored review by Japanese Cute Fashion.
Here is the link for all your cute Japanese fashion needs here you can also find them on facebook too.
Kyaa~ any one notice the change in the air we are already half way through November and its the season to keep cosy cute and warm.
Is it cold where you are? It has been wet and slightly mild here but to be offered to select some items to review I had to pick some cosy looking knitwear , one of my top kawaii tips for winter for staying Kawaii and Warm.

I picked 2 items from the knitwear section from the shop which has many other sections to browse. I chose a jumper and a cardigan both new items in store. The 1st item is a fuffly style cardigan, I am a creature of habit and still love black but try not to buy it cause it can be kawaii too. What I liked about this , is that it looks so warm and cosy! I also liked the cute skulls and cross bone details. This eyelash style wool seems to be rather popular in the high street shops.



The 2nd item is a jumper in a white shade that I picked. I loved this for its Kawaii sweet over all look again with a similar looking eyelash wool this one is covered in lipstick lips all over it - which is so cute!
And very fitting cause I love my lipsticks.
 
My Parcel was all wrapped up well and neatly for the post!
I had to collect it as the postie came when I was out on the school run, Thanks to that it meant I had to wait  from Tuesday which was the day it came. Till the following day to collect it! Item was shipped the Monday!

What I think of the items~
 The cardigan I love it! It fits well (8-12 UK size) I wore it for photos and it kept me soo warm I had to take it off for a bit! The only snag is there is no way to close it, so its a open style cardigan .The colours are the same as the stock photos and the skulls are way to cute!You could create many cute pastel gothic looks with this item as well as soft grunge looks.  There was no lose eyelash fibres either and none that I could see come off on my top underneath it when I took it off. I really like this cardi lots and it comes in a nice price on the website. I rate this this a 9/10 it would of got full marks if it had buttons or a zipper but that's a personal thing ( just being a fussy lol)






The other item was the Lippy Jumper as I call it lol! Again its the same as the stock image, it said it was a size UK 6-10, It did look small but I would say the sizes are spot on. Like the Cardi the martial is stretchy-ish. Is that a word?! I LOVE this Jumper its mega cute and sassy. The lip sticks marks are so cute haha. I also like how the base colour is pink and the fluffy eyelash wool is white giving it a nice cream colour.
I rate this one FULL marks 10/10! Would I recommend this online store? YES!
 This order has been great and stylish for winter cosy items

Here are my worn photos!







Hope enjoyed my review!

Kawaii Haul of Cute and MCM Glasgow


Every one ! How are you all ?
Seems like forever since I did a blog post - whoops my bad! So I thought I would get back on my laptop and blog away some stuff , Oh but my typical luck my laptop broke on me so I had to delay it even more. - sigh-.
So to cheer myself up with all my bad luck of late, I swear some one is cursing me. I treated myself to some fun Kawaii goodies. 
I ordered from one of my fave online esty stores, Frilly pops and order a pair of HOT pink pom pom earrings I saw the colour and fell in love with them and also I got a gift from the sweetie store owner which was such a surprise. A other set of earrings of mini pom poms in a leopard print style, they were so cute and stylish.


I love these pink pom poms so much they are so sassy and cute. I am not much of a girly girl but I do love my Pink stuff, The brighter the better!

I also got on order from 2 shops in the USA. A place I love and admire all the time I  am chubby bunny for her stylish and bold Kawaii looking hair bows , I have seen. I eventully picked one I have had my eye on for a while , I like ordering from here cause it comes so fast and its such a delight to open!



As well as getting my bow I also picked a pair of stars and heart earrings.
Am very happy with my order. Everything is soo cute!
The other place I Ordered from is a place I have not shopped with before I am your Present which is a Esty store, I picked up 2 super kawaii pieces that are soo cute and fun looking.
One is a collar clip with unicorns on it , that looks so magical and a pair of crazy colourful earrings.



I Just love these, they sent me a extra pair of earrings that I sent off to a pen pal as I cant wait really wear small earrings am scared I will lose them lol! I love the clips cause you can play about with many ideas with them. And Unicorns!! Who don't like Unicorns! The Stars are so fun and bubbly and cute.

Last weekend was the weekend of MCM Glasgow comic con. It was lots of fun and I got to hang out with my friends who were all dressed up form Lolita to Cosplay which was so cool . I only bought food and a plushie for my Chibi bean- a Yoshi one.  As I have seen other things I wanted to buy online later this month.
I ended up meeting a great cosplayer as the Joker ,in the queue. I was meeting my friends inside the event and spoke away. I seem to mange to be myself at conventions cause every one there has something in common with you and you don't need to spend long to find out what you have in common. I have a video to edit and up load and also got more you tube videos to do - watch this space !
So here is some of my photos!








So this was Glasgows 2nd MCM , I have to say that this year they were much more prepared for the numbers! A bigger hall was picked and the queue system ran smoothly . There was so many stalls and merch to let your eyes wonder too. I really went for the cosplay more than anything. But with a 5.30 am start I really did not get in the mood for taking photos this time. which is gutting but never mind. This year I was semi- dressed as Super Mario!

The only problem I had was my moustache kept coming off! Gahh!! I also did get to take photos of the Stunning Sailor moon who my friend Keara dressed as in cosplay! Which you can find here on this link.

I had a good weekend even though I was still recovering from the cold I got, and its nice to go and meet up with friends and do something we all enjoy. It was super fun maybe a bit awkward when others asked for our pictures, I really did not think my cosplay was very good haha! Next time I will defo pick a better cosplay and take way more photos!

so till next time!

Kawaii Pastels fashion on the highstreet

Hello every cutie. 
How are you all doing. I thought I would share some Kawaii fashion finds that you can get on the local high street brands and some online retailers too. There is still a lot of Pastel shades in the shops. I guess with it bring spring every one likes to wear pastel shades.
And then there is me shying away from them and picking more bolder shades to wear, personally I do not think I suit pastel colours. But I do like looking at them and think they look super cute too.

 I spotted this cute powder pink cross over bag from Boohoo.com. And I love the shade and style of this bag and its a steal at a mere £15!

The other thing that has surfaced to the fashion world is the Wrapped skorts and skorts.
Looks like a wrapped/skirt but worn like shorts. These are not new, I used to own a pair once upon a time but what I love about them is the fact when there was no worry of the wind to catch your skirt . They are so Kawaii!  Yay! I hope they catch on again hehe.
Mind you am not very keen on the Wrap style.

The other thing that I found was cute beanie hats that still are found in the shops, no wonder it feels like spring and summer are so far away! Its not been a nice start to the year weather wise. But this spring themed daisy cosy beanie hat has caught my eye. It is so adorable looking.You can find it in River Island by the way.

A other cute bag I found was from Boohoo.com again. I find that place can be a hit or a miss but then I guess it depends on what you are buying however I saw this and thought it was super cute a Lavender shade back pack. I really like its colour and the over all style of it .

It would be pretty cool to use it as a school or collaged bag. And a nice change from the dull back ones. hehe.




To keep with the spring time pastel themes here I found this cute hair band. Which is rabbit ears with Daisy flower heads on the ears. from River island. Hehe its adorable and would make a cute hair statement and for a themed Easter picnic too.

There is so many cute things in the shops right now, its just a case of keeping a kawaii eye open.

Oh and don't forget about your chemists and make up sections in stores because they also have jumped into spring! With really nice pastel shades, colours and textures in nail polish and there is some really cute baby pinks in the blusher counters and sweet soft mints and baby blues for your eyes!
For example look at this stunning pallet by Barry M and its cute packaging too, Kyaa! 

I do like seeing these pastels and spring themed items at this time of the year - it gives a bit of hope to warmer weather to come and I look forward to wearing more dresses and skirts in the year too. Have you already picked up your pastel shades in your own styles and fashions or are you looking for more bold colours and prints for spring?!

Weather with a Kawaii Kitty twist

The weather is a huge topic,no matter where you go,some one comments on the weather and its been so so wet damp and cold here that means only going out if I really have to with chibi bean but the good news is that hubby has passed his driving exam we could take the car some time.
I am awaiting a harsh winter,I have a feeling it may be long snowy and very very cold. It would be nice to get some snow for chibi bean but it brings some problems along with it,but I really like snow.
So I decided to try and make a all weather post with super cute images and weather themed items that I love and are related to hello kitty !
Let the image spam start!

Wig lockshop review

I have been selling off my other wigs that I no longer wear due to them having bangs/fringes.
I have been using that money to save for a few things one being a camera. ^^
but I had enough to get a new wig.I returned to the lock shop for my wig,I have got my eye on a few know!

This is one of the newest wig that is very long and is hand dyed at the ends its stunning and of course looks lush on the model.I like the style and the colours of this wig,like all the wigs in the lock shop there is a selection of colours that  look like colours that you could get by going to to a salon.

Keeping warm and Kawaii~Hints and tips

Keeping Warm is a number warm thing for me as I happen to feel the cold,Even though every one has only t-shirts on,I am frozen and like to wrap up warm,May it be I wear a extra t-shirt or a few more layers.

Maybe because I am in Scotland?!...errrmm...You would think that I would be used to it since I lived here all my life.
Even today I am feeling a chill around me.

 T^T
So here are a few hints and tips with keeping warm but still Kawaii for this winter!


Hints and Kawaii Tips for the winter!

Jumpers! Big thick cosy jumpers are in the knitwear selections,
There are 2 kinds pain ones or ones with detail.

Picking the detailed ones with cute images on them are super cute and easy to wear with out thinking to much about them by wearing some nice jeans.Currently is all about skulls and crosses with fashion at this time so its proven hard to get some cute images on jumpers right now.


New Look Love heart Jumper

The other is plain but wear some printed Jeans or cute leggings to make a Kawaii outfit and keep warm at the same time .Choosing the idea of a plain jumper makes this a big easy as there is lots of prints on leggings,tights and jeans that can make the outfit cute.Most of the colours at this current season are all dark looking too but there is a small handful of lighter colours.


New Look,Sweet cute Bow Jumper

The other ways of keeping warm and Kawaii is playing about with Printed Leggings and Tights though there is not as many printed tights as much as there is overseas its work going on ebay to have a look for some,These can brighten up any outfit that is plain and warm and by there is thicker leggings out for the warmer months too.
A other idea is even though its not quite snowing over here it means you can still use the shorts that you had this summer (or Lack of Summer in Scotlands case).
By wearing some think tights to keep your legs warm!
Right know in the shops there is a range of coloured tights (again Dark colours) that are fab for wearing with shorts,and also with all this seasons colours and prints you can still pick up a new pair of shorts in October!
Footwear can be cute too and thank's to the popularity of Festivals Shops have caught on with the Wellies boots.
That's Right you can know get super cute Welly boots ones with bows,lace and prints,My own are poka dots and I make sure I have some nice thick (Kawaii )Socks to keep my feet warm too.




There is lots of cute welly boots.
^_^


My current OOTD are mostly Jeans with thick jumpers and cute accessories,or its ifs mild I wear my cute shorts tights and tops.But its hard work keeping Kawaii and warm at the same time.
Why not look into some Kawaii and Adorable Lolita Jackets and even Anime plush slippers too.
And if all else fails simply buy a kawaii fleece blanket and wrap up cosy with a few of your most loved Plushies  like Hello Kitty of course and get a nice cup or warm hot chocolate with mini marshmallows 
^^ 
Stay super Kawaii
