Pom Pom- Frilly Pops Review


Hello every one, am back I have a few things to post. I thought things would be quite, so I did some videos on Youtube. But Then I got some kawaii goodies in the post and wanted to review them for you.

Today's Review is a online store run on Esty called FrillyPops! I was searching Esty - you always can find some neat looking and kawaii one of a kind items and found this seller, selling the most adorable and Kawaii looking earrings!! 
There is not much on the Esty store at the time being as the seller is working on other projects but it gives you a good idea of the pieces she makes. 
I did have a hard job picking which earrings I wanted and in the end picked the ones here! The Strawberry Milkshake ones. Kyaaa! I thought I might use them with my maid cafe outfit but then I got 2 dresses for my birthday and it goes with them too. 
My items came with in a few days and were packed well inside the post parcel. This is was how they were presented.




All Wrapped up in stickers with a Flyer -Kawaii. 



*Note- I didn't open these till later on on my birthday as I was out all day on a workshop , So I had to use my flash.



How cute are these? OH I just love them soo~ much they are in a soft pink shade and on a pink chain that links them to the earring piece. The also came with plastic backs on them. First impressions were KAWAII!!
My earrings with postage cost me £9.40 and for something hand made I think that is a very good price.




They are well made, no they look very professionally made as there is not a trace of imperfection on any of the pom pom's or the jewellery and the jewellery findings. Second impression- Am in love with them.
I will point out these pom pom's are the perfect size and the perfect lenght for my personal taste. They are super fun, cute and girly. The pom pom's  l have a nice weight when worn. They are t not light weight enough to become easily moved in the wind when  standing still , but they do swing kawaii style when your moving about. And they are super super soft so you will not mind them brushing past your neck.

I just Love them soo much!

If you love the look of these as much as I do. Then please check out the links already above and below.

Kawaii Crafts -Washi Blossom Garland


It is time to get crafty every Cutie, here is a Do it your self - How to make your own Washi Blossom Garland. To hang up and enjoy in your home, room or kawaii space!
Its a simple thing to make  that recycles old plastic bags and looks so cute hanging up. So lets go and get to the how to ...

What you will need it the following~
A bunch of Plastic bags
Some Washi Decorative tape
Thread
Scissors






Start with gathering all the things you need and set up some space.Take next your plastic bag and flatten it out. You want to cut it up into strips but discard the handle and the very end piece of the bag. You can play about with the widths of the ''Blossoms'' you wish to make. You might want to collect a few plastic bags for this! 





Once you have done this you want to take you Washi tape or decorative tape and place it along the sides of the strips of plastic bags. You can pick any cute tapes to make your 'Blossoms' look really cute. This can be a tricky bit taping up the plastic bags strips so do take your time! Make sure you do both sides.




Once all the sides have their washi tape on them, you want to fold them up. so if you pinch the ends they will fan out. This is where you are going to need your thread to tie them up and keep it them from spring flat again. Make sure you try and tie the knots nice and tight in the middle of the plastic strips. 






The next step is to take the folded strip and then cut around the ends in a rounded trim on the edge, This will give a bit of shape of a semi circle on the ends to make your ' blossoms'. 
Once you have done this very gently  pull the sides to puff them out and then separated them even more to give some volume and shape to the 'blossom.' You should have something a bit like these..





Taa Daa!!
Then simply either string them along a thread like a garland or even bunch them up together. Hang them verticality across or even let them dangle like floating blossoms from above by attaching them high up. You can really put them any where you want and they are just so cute and a great little project to do with friends and family.

Colourful and Kawaii!


Hey every cutie.

This week I got a new purse in the post , I found this little cute online store called 'Very Kawaii.'

It has a small selection of kawaii goods, But one item caught my eye. See ,I normally use my Lounge fly x Hello Kitty wallet but cause its made with very tough material and is so new ( I got it at Christmas.) I find it a bit annoying to use and I end up looking so silly trying to open up this purse, trying not to spill out all my money every where.

So I had made a point to get myself a nice stress free wallet. Because having a 3 year old tugging at my coat because she wants a kinder egg, when I am paying for my shopping is stressful enough now she has so much more freedom being off the walking toddler rains. So finding this little kawaii gem was very handy. 

I saw this cute wallet and fell in love with it , It's about the same size as my Hello Kitty one but I have to say it was the colours that attracted me to the item. Its got some cute buttons on it and is made up of cute colours,even inside it has bright cute colours. It has got a place for your cards, A place to add any kawaii photos you like to carry around and then it has the part for coins's that has a zip to keep them safe. As well as other parts to keep notes and even bits of paper which happen to have a list of the thing's I need to buy or remember- huhuh.

It has a popper button to fasten it together and its very light weight.The material is very  soft and has a nice glossy look to it too.It cost me £9.99 plus the postage. It didn't take long to get here either. I came in the post very fast. That might be due to the fact this online shop is in the UK.

At the moment there is not much in the online store but I do hope they will be able to bring in some very cute items that are different to your normal kawaii retailer. With this purse being a great example. As I have not found anything as cute as this in other shops and I happen to be quite active in looking for great Kawaii buys! 

So they are worth checking out!
Online shop link found here!

The other thing I have bought that is super colourful and cute are these hair bands/ hair bobbles, they are from a ebay seller/shop called Gobboline. Who sell a huge range of Kawaii/ Harajuku clothing, accessories among other things . I bought from them in the past. This time I bought these cute hair bobbles to use as Pom pom bracelets for some photos for a outfit. Am not sure if these are the real fairy kei style but I might have sweet heart in Japan who can find the ones you find in Japan. Till then these ones will be useful for other things.

The other thing I bought a the start of the year was a custom piece of jewellery made by the lovely Roxiesweet Heart! I came up with a idea  ,that I was inspired from a other necklace but I wanted it too look even more kawaii and colourful! More funky looking and super fun and cute. I wanted it to look bold and be a statement piece too. Roxiesweet Heart was up for the challenge and with her magic made a magical piece of Kawaii for me! I only got it in the post and its just soo cool. I love the colours and the magical acrylic that has been used its mirror like effect but its also see-through and shimmers in different shades! Its also got the cutest looking font and text with a chunky cute chain. Oh and the extra added gems added to the piece!Am super happy with it - I do like my statement pieces heehee!

Well that's my current Colourful and Kawaii update for you all! Hope you have been inspired to bring more colour into your life too!

Stay Kawaii!
