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!

Hello Kitty prize!

Hey every Cutie!
Guess what, A about a week ago . I won a contest by The cute shop, an online shop that has lots of kawaii items mainly Sanrio and other kawaii characters and you all know how much I adore miss Kitty chan. It has so many cute products, I have shopped with them in the past and there is so much to look at.
Anyway I thought I would see if I was lucky and entered the contest give-away. You could win some items for your kitchen, My kitchen is the least kawaii room in my whole house lol. So I thought, how cute would it be to have so kawaii in my kitchen too.

So I was pleasantly surprised to be contacted to say I had won some Kitty prizes! Yay 
I got my prize sent to me in about a week it was with me , I was really excited to get my prize.




  My items came in a cute pink bag and were well wrapped.

  
The apron is so cute and fits well it has ties at the back. This is the image on the front of it and its says ''Kitty's room is full of fun and play.'' I have worn this 2 times and it has 2 front pockets on it very , its very light weight and pretty.





Also in my prize was this super kawaii oven mitt. Its so cute and fluffy with Kitty and a rose decoration on it on the outer side and the quilted side. I have used this mainly for holding the hold handles from my posts after they have been used to boil water. Its very handy to have and cute in my kitchen -Kawaii~




Lastly I got a very sweet hello kitty dish/hand towel , It has a cute decoration to it and very is very soft. I like how it is a nice pastel shade of pink and is so pretty. I use it more of a hand towel in my kitchen.
Over all the products are very good quality. Also I was given a gift discount in my prize gift. Yay! So I have ordered a small amount of goodies from a Kitty range I love the most. I am very excited to get them. 
I hope you like the review of my prize goods.

A magical bag with wings

Hey there cute things, I hope you are all well and staying cute.
Today I wanted to show you my new backpack, I have not used one in years! teehee but when I found this bag I thought it was to cute to not get and because I found it much cheaper over at Jill Punk x Loli compared to all the other online stores I was quite happy to go ahead and get it with saving a few pennies . Yay!

I ordered from Jill Punk x Loli via their ebay store and every time but once due to a stock issue every thing takes about 2 weeks to get here. Whoopee! This time my order came in a box.
I love that they have the logo on the side of the box nyaa, to cute!


I was starting to wonder how big this bag would be.
My item was wrapped up well in a protective bag and was inside a plastic bag. It got here safe and sound.


I was excited to have this bag in my hands and get to see it for real as the stock picture looked so amazing!




I went for the black bag instead of the white, simply because I much prefer black over white.
I was really happy when I saw that it, as it's just like the stock picture and so cute!


Its a simple shape bag with wings, how adorable!
The best thing about this bag is that if you don't want white wings...


It comes with extra wings to switch them over to whatever mood you are in!
Yay!
I love the pastel blue and pink shades. The wings just snap on with the poppers and easy to change! I found my spare wings inside the bag also the straps are fully adjustable and you can remove them too.


Also as you can see it has 3 poppers on the bag means you can change the way the wings sit too!
It is a bit of a novitiate and fun but the big plus on this is that this bag is really big. Its got a inside piece with a rip , great for your phones and things to keep from rolling about to the bottom of the bag and on the other side a inner section , Its got a ton of space inside you can fit in so much! Also it has a nice think looking chunky zip for closing the bag up for when your out and about.
Over all I love the cuteness of this bag and that fact is super practical.  I have used it a good few times and love it! I do with it had a 2 way zip up for easy-ness but part from that tiny thing its super. I managed to cram so much inside while out shopping! hehe!
The Price was around the £20- 25 mark with the shipping. I can not mind off the top of my head but I think that is a very reasonable price. 

Hope you like the review every one!

Fluffy nail art...Kawaii

Hey there you cutie's.
I hope you all had a great weekend, I had such a busy one that am so tired, I need to catch up on some 'ZZzz'z' but I sure did have some fun. Today I wanted to find this cool and fun
 nail art effect, there is a lot on the market and in high strret brands in the shops but I saw this and was like ''Kyaa its so Kawaii!''
I used my BarryM nail polish for my night out at the weekend so I still had it on when I got this magical little tub of Fur-effect nails by MUA which was about £3-5 ( cant mind of the top of my head the price- as I got 2, and 2 new polish's.)


It comes in a little tub .


You can add it to your nails,as it says on the back with the shaker seen here in the above photo.


Or you can take the shaker part off and paint your nails and ''sprinkle'' the fluffy fur on it.


I found that I had to really pack it on my freshly painted wet nails to fully cover the nail and by placing a sheet of paper under my hands. I could catch the fur that escaped as it was a bit messy with fur every where!!

I have BarryM Dragon Fruit shade on underneath.



As you can see at first they are super furry but they lost their puff as I didnt push the fur into the wet polish to well, But I since washed my hands many a time, run a bath, dishes and lots of cleaning and the fur is still on! Not only that but its still super soft to touch too.

So am really impressed, I got this hot pink fur in colour and a cotton candy one too!
I cant wait to try that one out too!
Hope you like my fur-tastic find for new nail art fun!
Till next time!

It's all about Kawaii- How to be Kawaii




''What is Kawaii..?" ..."How can I be Kawaii?!"...'' How can I be Kawaii like you?!'' '...''How can I be more Kawaii?!''...


I get these questions thrown at me a lot not just online but offline too often the ''What is Kawaii?'' one. So am going to brake these up and help all of you cute blog readers how to be Kawaii or extra Kawaii!!

What is Kawaii?!
(Based on the Blogger's own personal thoughts.)

Kawaii is a Japanese word かわいい Kawaī , It means in English likes of ''Cute, sweet, dear,adorable,pretty,charming ,childish,and lovely.'' Its a word used a lot by girls, teens and even mature women. Its even being used all over the world now because Kawaii things are becoming popular.
But what does it mean then  Well Kawaii can mean anything ''cute'' to every one because we all have different tastes. Some of us like cute animals, or cute funny photo' , others like cute 'n creepy or the Geeky cute stuff and others like cute and girly for example.
The list is endless!

Kawaii to me is a bit different to the above maybe because am such a lover of Japan and everything from Japan. So to me Kawaii is a Japanese thing that is Cute in Japan.. think Hello Kitty Rilakkuma and Mameshiba. But its not Limited to cute Characters!  To me its also Style, Fashion, Music and Culture from Japan, Well that's my personal primary meaning of the word Kawaii and I don't try to limit it on purpose or anything I just feel it needs to be rounded off as a word  as it means many things to every one but I will hands down admit I  do use Kawaii for many other thing's like, to me my daughter is also cute or will do endearing things that are cute. So that is why I think Kawaii can be a personal thing!
copyright www.JapanLover.me
 I often say Kawaii a lot, But I really like the word. I also interchange with both words Cute and Kawaii. Over all Kawaii has many meanings and its other main meaning to me is...
 Kawaii is something that you like, makes you smile and feel cute and happy at the same time!

''How can I be Kawaii?'' ''How can I be Kawaii Like you?''

So, How can some one be Kawaii? Well its all down to personal taste and interests at the end of the day. What you might find Kawaii might not be Kawaii be for others not but its not hard to find others whom are Kawaii Kinder spirits- thanks to the cyber world!
To be Kawaii think of the things that interest you, Is it food, culture ,fashion style? ect ect and form there you can work on what you already have as a interest and research it along side Kawaii.

So lets have some steps on How to be Kawaii.
(From the Bloggers personal point of view.)

Being Kawaii is something personal. You don't need to change who you are to be Kawaii.
The best thing to research!  Get on Google and Search Kawaii. 

Depending on your interest of Kawaii you might want to look into the meaning of the word and the culture and Japan. If these things interest you, you may find yourself in heaven.
Do you like art, comics and TV shoes then you will want to look into anime and manga.



Do you adore cute characters and soft toys such as the famous Hello Kitty ? She is also a good starting points as she appeals to all kinds of people and will introduce you to other cute characters.
Or are you into make up- why not look into Japanese Make brands and Make up How to's Videos. Don't forget to look into cute fashions and more so the styles and sub styles from Japan ( J-Fashion.) Worth checking them all out by the way!!




The reason for taking your interest and looking at it from a different view the Kawaii view I guess....Is so that you do not look and seem Fake or a Wannabe around your friends and new Kawaii Friends, We are not changing you or your personality here.


Acting Kawaii...

Acting Kawaii...okay this is when it can look fake, over the top and childish. You don't want to do something you don't normally do, as it will look odd to friends and family. 


Being Kawaii and acting Kawaii is simple, Its okay to act a little over the top with excitement in your interests, or when you have found that dream dress or got a Hello Kitty plush at sale price ect ect.Putting on that extra drama to your emotions can help, and you will be Kawaii in no time!
 The other thing is to stay polite, sweetly smile and respect that others may or may not like Kawaii.
''How Can I be more Kawaii?''

This really depends how far you wish to take Kawaii, some want to dress Kawaii where others might want to be surrounded by Kawaii items or want to create a Kawaii Lifestyle.



Its quite easy to be more Kawaii by adding little things to your  every day, from drinking out of a cute mug of coffee or making a emoji/smile cute face with ketchup.Picking cute charms and adding them to your smart phone and keys. Using a cute school bag or decorate your school stuff/ note books with Japanese stickers and Deco tape is also a great way to add more Kawaii.



Looking into the other areas of your interests and see if they can be made Kawaii is a big key to becoming more Kawaii.
At the end of the day Kawaii can really be anything to every one, its what you find cute/Kawaii is what matters and don't forget to have fun too!
