Tartan's- Summer Kawaii Ideas


I love wish list's, they are so much fun. I love shopping too. Are you one of those folk who just add everything to the basket you like online , like - I want this, that , oh that too! To then get to the basket that is in the cyber world over spilling of stuff that your bank account would never handle. Yeah..sounds just like me!
Well this year I have taken a few steps to my many wish lists, some are more to do with my self than products and items lol. But one thing for me is being more colourful every day.
I have been looking at cute skirts to take on a more feminine side to myself- am so bad for wearing Tee's and jeans . So I got myself some skirts like the ones form Cutesy Kink!




Am loving these pastel cute shades in these cute skirts with braces, they are light weight and trendy. These will be great pieces to add to your kawaii clothing. I think they come in pink, blue and lavender. They are just so cute and floaty ! I think the best thing with these also is when it comes to summer layering these would look really cute with tights or socks and pretty shoes in the same shades.

Talking about summer , makes me think of flowers and I adore wearing flowers with my fashions and Wigs. They were in fashion last year but this year they have come back bigger and bolder. With so many shades and flowers to pick form it is some thing you can use with ease to make a kawaii outfit super summery and adorable. They remind me of festival boho looks and summer days at the beach with your sweetheart.



Kawaii sunnies! I love shades- My fave kind are the cat eye shape sunglasses and both of mine are pink but they are not as kawaii crazy as these ones! It would be super fun to make your own DIY Kawaii sunglasses like these. There is lots of cute sunglasses on places like Esty and Ebay. It is a matter of hunting and looking for that Kawaii statement piece!
Summer make-up is my other suggested idea, in summer it is far from a good look to have caked up make up and having the heat melt it all off so why not swap your make up to light formulas such as BB creams that often have a sun factor in them to help protect your skin in the sun. I used one from etube house and its so light to wear. As well you might still use more shimmery shades or natural shades but don't forget that bright lippy that you can't forget or leave it in the house! I like to use my bright matte shades to last longer on warmer days with a gloss on top for that summery look!

What would you say are your Kawaii Summer ideas and hints/ tips that you would share? What thing would you like to add to your summer outfits?

Marshmallow Dream Maids Anniversary Event

Hey sweeties, Last weekend was a busy one for me my goodness! Now it is all over I turn my attention to Christmas stuff that has been neglected. So it was the Marshmallow Dreams Maid cafe 1st Anniversary there and this time it was held in a little cafe called Cake and Cushion in Glasgow.
Where we had 2 time slots for our customers to celebrate with us in super Kawaii Christmas style!
Last time the maids hosted an event in a cafe style I could not attend so this time I made sure to bring as much equipment as I could for the event (which makes me stress out as am carrying expensive stuff and I worry..)

This time I matched in with the other maids in a maid outfit, Only because I felt out of place last time being in casual and surrounded by so many cuties heh. So here are the results of our event, Cake, Smiles, Festive cheer and of course lots of KAWAII!


Enjoy the photos!















The event was a success and a great way to end the year with such a hard working team of adorable maids!, here is to many more events for the coming year and keep a eye on the facebook page for more photos and updates for next year!
(video coming soon!)

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 !!

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?!

Is Kawaii hitting Topshop?


Hey Cuties,
So its not very often I will buy Glossy Magazines. I normally will pick up Hello Kitty or Peppa Pig for chibi bean or Neo Mag for myself but today I saw a offer on 3 magazines and bought them and found that one of them had a feature on Top Shop's new designer range .. my mouth fell open when I saw this stuff. I had to do a double take!
So I thought I would show you some of the stuff I found!
Some of the Range by Meadham Kirchhoff is uhum...bright and not really my style but what sprung to mind was Pastels and Kawaii with the other pieces.
Am sure you Fairy kei and pastel /White Goths, Decora , Magical girls are going to love some of this stuff!

Okay, Okay.This one I fell in love with it but am a complete sucker for pink animal print ..huhu so cute!
But here is the other stuff below that I want to show you!


As you can see its a mix of pastels and very flowing items. I really love those shoes those are just crazy! I would not wear them myself but I bet they would look adorable on a sweet lolita! There is a Baby doll style dress and even cute Skirts to be found.


There is a ton of cute pastel shade tights and very cute cherry themed socks that are utterly adorable!
The blouse is also so Kawaii and I would love to see some of the j-fashion enthusiast's online collaborating it in with their own styles! Maybe some on could send me a photo - I so would show it on the Facebook Page. I bet it would look so Kawaii.



Check out these cute hold ups! nyaa so sweet. hehe.

I have to admit the price tag is rather high for myself but then I would want to spend my money on other things hehe! (or maybe save up for that lush top...*plots*)
Since this was on the higher gloss fashion magazines I wonder how long till the others take on pastel shades and cute looks.Am rather shocked its in a ''High Street'' Shop but its rather nice to see the High street explore new trends (okay, not new to us J-Fashion lovers.) But yea..you get my drift.
I wonder if the public are ready to take on Kawaii Fashions now that it is slowly being seen more and more with J-Fashion lover's and stylish idol's daring to be different.

Do you want to see more Kawaii in ''normal/casual'' high street fashion?
Would you like to see more people dress more Kawaii? Or do you think that the style here in the UK is to mature for dressing in Kawaii styles?
I'd love to hear your views on this so comment below...

Pastel Haul


Step into spring every one Pastel colours are back in with this seasons trends (like last year but more shades.) Last year I didn't get into them. I felt they were not really my thing but then I came across those mixing it with Gothic styles.
Pastel Goth and I though yuno why not give pastels a shot.I really like pastel nail polishes and feel in love with the new Barry M range of Jelly's- which I am going to review for you all soon.(*^_^*)

So my haul, I went with my little family out to the local shops- which may I add there is not much of but it was so cold it was a case of going in and getting what I needed!

Lil Mizz Kitty

I have been searching for some cute and sweet accessories,I also needed some cute things for a upcoming photo shoot.

I searched for a while and eventually came across this Gem of a shop.




Who can be found both on Facebook and Esty for all your Kawaii needs!


I found some of the perfect accessories I was needing and had in mind for my shoot.
The prices are good as well and I got great customer service which was friendly and sweet!
I also love the cute touch to the business card with the the bobby pink bow and the small gift wrap.
KAWAII!



The postage was fast and I was overjoyed with my new things!
I fell in love with this super Kawaii fuzzy heart I really like it !
I want a other one.
Hehe!


And I finally found some cute star bracelets and These are all made by the girl that runs it,I have already seen a few other things that are just so cute!
You can even pick your colour theme and add pearls to these bracelets.
