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!

How to be Kawaii -Skin Care

Hey cuties!
Oh am so sorry I have been so half bothered about my blog, I suppose I really have had no motivation of late to blog about anything, everything has gone so quite! But I have not forgotten about my blog!
I am actually going to give it a bit of love and attention by giving it a make over! but it will take time . Talking of Make overs my blog post today is going to be all about my Skin Care routine.
Having Good healthy clear skin is a start on becoming and staying super Kawaii!

I am often asked, ''What's your secret?'' '' How is your skin so clear and perfect?'' ''Do you suck the youth of children to look so young?!''. Well yes I do suck the youth of children to keep my eternal young looking skin- that there, is my secret...OF course not!! *stares blankly* So I thought, I would share what I do. It really is not any secret at all. And if it helps you in any way or might give you some ideas then its worth a shot then.

The Brands that I use are Simple its a nice easy to use range of products , The Moisture, Toners and make up removers .These are products I have used for years and like them as they are gentle and light on my kind of skin..I have no idea what sort of skin I have but I will take a guess and say its c
The other products I use are the Good things Range from Boots which are the Manuka and Honey products of a Mask and Face Scrub. These I use either once a week, or every second week, I try to keep it to once a week to keep on top of giving my face a good clean but sometimes that is not the case. The Mask and the scrub smell so nice to me it is like giving myself a treat or some me time. As having a 3 year old little one clinging to you 24/7 . Some times you just want a bit of time to your self!

I admit I do not aways remember to use my Moisture and Toners, I try my best to mind to use my products before make up and such but am just being honest I do not always have the time. But one thing I do do, which i think plays a big part of keeping my skin nice and healthy is. I take off all my make up before bed, There was a time * hangs head in shame* where I would roll in from the dancing ( back in the day.) and be like out for the count or not be bothered to remove the make up and wake up the next day with make up smeared all over my face and pillow.. Not a Pretty sight haha!
Now I have a go to bed routine which is using my Simple products of Make up wipe removers. I switch from a cleanser one to a ex-foliate one the both do the same job. Once I get all my make up off I pay close attention to the eye area and be gentle around that and my lips.

Now if any of you know me well..I LOVE bright coloured and high pigmented lips, From Hot Pink to Bright Red! I love to have bright colours but those sorta colours can be powerful and some times dry your lips out or those ones which have high staying power ...yuno the ones, that are like water proof smudge proof and bullet proof, yup those's ones! They can really take it out on your lips so I like to use a lip scrub I got an Asian brand one- the name I have  forgotten- I use that every week when I do my face skin scrub and Mask.
But the other thing I do every night is layer on some chap stick or lip balm for my lips to get hydrated while I sleep.

Talking of sleep! Sleep is also a great thing for your skin. When you sleep your skin repairs its self, and a other top tip is drinking LOTS of Water! Yea when I have a cheeky day of junk food ...What? It's okay.. some times you have to eat all the things and junk and fizzy drinks but...I take the next day to snap out of it and avoid all junk food and flush it out my system by drinking more water, its good for your system and your body!
The other thing I like to do when I can is I take every so often a NO- Make-up day(s)! Yup that means NOTHING AT ALL! I go about my day bare faced and face all so natural, Its a good idea to let your skin breathe every once and a while , if you are not keen on the idea why not pick it as a day where you are not up for doing anything  or on holiday. I am not a person who can not leave the house with out make up but I do like to keep my best. But its something I do suggest you try.

Remember every one has different skin so some of the products I use might not be best suited for you - so best talk to those beauty girls at the department stores and am sure they can help you with products and skin care too!

So every one that's the big old secrets to my eternal youth *cough* I mean the secrets to my Skin Care, its just basic stuff and like every one else some times am on top of my game other times am not, but that's okay. I will just pick up the pieces tomorrow

Luna.TU Review

Hey every one, how are you all doing?
I have a review for you all and some links to my newest Videos! Today review is from the online line store LunaTU . It is a new online web store that sells Japanese and Koren make up , skin care and beauty items. There is even a Kawaii section too. Any way I put in a order with them last Thursday and my order came on Saturday- yea my review is a tad late but I had some beauty out brakes and my skin was like woah!! Easy now, take a time out and go all natural. But after a lot of detoxing .So did I get around to testing the items from my order. So here is my review for you all!

My order came really fast and was well wrapped in Bubble wrap.I ordered 3 items. The website gives a clear description on each item. I got a lip mask, a lip moisture/concealer and eye-liner. All the items came in a super cute packaging. Kawaii ~
Sorry in advance of the , lack of photos- I happend to use the items in a video before I wrote in my blog!


So lets check out the items! 1st up is the lip  concealer, made for toning down red lips and moisture. Doubled up as a lip base for under your fave lippy or gloss. The product is cute and small with a stick of shimmery nude pink. I used it under my own normal bright lippy for a even tone and bring out the shade from the lippy I use, ( Barry M btw.)



This item can be used alone as well and I think it would be a girls best friend for doing 'Dolly'' or 'Rose bud style'' lips. It glides on very easy and smooth and shimmery. The other Lip product I got was the Glossy Lip mask. Omg this product was amazing. weird at first to use but yea wow. I love it it left my lips feeling super and I mean super ,soft and moist. You can have it on for 5- 30 mins. It looks really creepy on but its really amazing!


The final product I ordered was the Sailor moon Miracle Romance, Black Eye liner. A 20th Anniversary product. which came packed and all pretty. The eye liner pen is also cute. Pastel pink with gems and images all over it such as a moon and even Luna the cat. Its quite a small eye liner pen to what am used too.I picked the Black shade.
The eye liner is a felt thin and I mean super thin tip(0.1mm)!! That is something I have not seen over here in the UK market of eye liners. I have given this a go and it glides on so well and you can layer it up to thicken the liner on your lids.


Over all am very happy with my order. Again because there was a lack of presentation my order didn't feel very Kawaii when opening. (Again this is a total personal thing of mine. I cant help it that I think every thing must be super cute!!!) Hehe.
However. I can seem me ordering again. I would say from what I have tried already . I would like to try the lip mask again it was really good. I would want to try other products too such as the skin care and would recommend this shop . I look forward to all the new exciting products that will be stocked soon.

Hope you all like my review!
Till later Tartan <3

How to make a Kawaii- Workspace ,Desk and Office.

Last week I got a new item to add to my kawaii collection- it is the biggest item. Okay it might not be super kawaii right now but its my new work space and new Desk. My new desk is really cute ,its white with pink drawers and I ended up getting a cute pink matching stool as well!

I hope this work space will bring about new and wonder kawaii ideas. It took a while to build *sigh* and so far I have not really set it up to the most kawaii way possible ,As you can see, my Laptop is not even set up on it yet. It has become home to my kawaii funko figures and stationary boxes for the time being. I plan to keep all my Pen pal stuff, Camera and Laptop here too. I hope to add lots more Kawaii things to my new desk/ Workspace. 


Cute idea and handy information the stool has a hidden storage area inside, It's such a cute colour. Its rather comfortable as well.The tiny one belongs to chibi who likes to copy everything I do! 


Got some of my Kawaii friends on my desk too!


Can you spot all the items that I have received with the Kawaii club? And Look I have got my stuff at hand for all those kawaii ideas that will come to mind for upcoming projects.



How to make your own office, workspace and desk, super cute!
*Make sure its okay with your managers to revamp your desk.*

Because my desk is at home, I am very lucky to get away with anything on my desl, so please check the rules for your work before revamping your workspace.


  • First thing to do is clean away everything on your desk, its best to work from a blank canvas. Dust, wipe and take everything off the desk. Best to start with a clean slate.

  • If you can pick a new desk, pick one that is in a nice shade or colour that is kawaii.Or you could even paint the desk yourself. If that is something you can't  do , then look into buying a desk mat that you can lay down on surface of your desk and these come in all colours, shapes and sizes. These will add a splash of colour to a dull looking desk

  • You could also look at your chair or stool for sitting at your desk, You can pick one that matches your desk or even recover a office chair with cute looking fabric.

  • Look around your environment and see if there is space on the walls to put up Kawaii style posters. Or if posters are to big then print of small sized images to decorate your walls.

  • Or why not peg up with mini pegs on a string and have that hanging near you, with all of your Kawaii decorative polaroid photos.~Happy times!

  • Place useful items on your desk for example desk tidy pots, file storage and other items. But see if you can find them in a cute colour shape or even with your favourite characters on them.

  • Decorate everything! Simple yet effective and can be lots of fun. Use stickers, washi tape and colourful pens.

  • Add objects such as kawaii toys, figures to arrange on your desk, Cute photo frames and clocks would work or why not add some colourful flowers to brighten up your day. These things will make you smile and keep you motivated! Pick things that are Kawaii to you.

  • Pick cute styles and kawaii characters on Memo and sticky pads instead of these dull neon yellow sticky notes! As well as cute letter sets, stationary and note books.

  •  Why not make a inspiration or Kawaii pin board to have on your desk or wall above your desk.
  • Remember to keep the drawers to your desk cute and clean with drawer organisers , this will keep everything neat and in place.

  • Lastly , Keep everything neat and tidy on your desk. Put things back in own home.Clean it often as well as keeping it clutter free! And you will have a super Kawaii workspace every day to enjoy!

Kawaii Club April un-boxing

Hello every one, Today I have the April Kawaii Club subscription to share with you!

Yay, for a other Kawaii club un-boxing! Not only do you get to see what's inside but you get to hear about the items.This month is crammed with super, super Kawaii items . Like SUPER KAWAII! And I bet your dying to see them!Yatta! Lets go have a look!



This months theme was *drum roll* Rilakkuma Homewares...Kyaa!
I have to say this is my favourite Kawaii Club box so far! Maybe cause am a sucker for home wares that are adorable, but I think its cause its all rilakkuma stuff! Eeee~
Also am sorta glad as I had been eyeing a few of the items in my kawaii club online too! So am super happy !



This month in the box we got your new letter with information in it about your items. The 1st time I got with the Ookii Parcel was a huge Rilakkuma re-useable shopping bag I love these things!

You roll it up to keep in a pocket or handbag when out shopping , whip it out and you have a large more stronger bag than the plastic ones from the shops! Once you are you, just roll it back up for using again! Its so handy! The plus side is its huge so its a great excuse to buy even more when shopping ~Huhuh! Also you will have the added bonus of using a super cute bag too!


Also we got a Rilakkuma phone number message board, which you stick on the numbers to the board to keep them at hand when you need to mind say your moblie number , home land line or any other important number, I never mind my home number so I used mine for that haha! Is so cutely decorated with Rilakkuma and Kiriotori on the board.
Also I got a Desk top Tidy box a handy item to have, Mine will end up being used for pens and paper notes my one is Yellow with Kiirotori on it, thats the little yellow bird by the way - teeheee!


 I found also a Kawaii Pump of Rilakkuma's head you could use in the bathroom or by the kitchen sink as a soap dispenser. I really wanted one of these for a while and am using mine to encourage chibi bean to wash her hands with Rilakkuma after using the bathroom. It seems to be working as well!

There is a set of memo pads that are adorable the are in different sizes too so there is 'tabs' that can be used for bookmarks and memo stickers to plaster everywhere and anywhere heehee! And they are all themed like Rilakkuma too!

























The last 2 items are a San-x stapler, mine came as Korilakkuma as a stationary junkie and keen penpal writer this is a handy thing to have and my goodness its so cute!! I cant wait to have a new deck and have it sitting by my stuff haha!

The other item is a set of cute food resealers, you can keep your left over snacks fresh with these and seal up half eaten snacks,with cute Rilakkuma to keep watch over them too- heehee. A very handy gadget to have in the kitchen or when out and about too!


Well that's the un-boxing for this months Kawaii Club, keep a eye out for my post for next months when it arrives! Yay!

Enji Review!

Hey every cutie! I hope every one has enjoyed my my past blog posts of interviews. Today  I have a review to share with you . Last week I got my 1st ordered from Enji an online store who sell some Japanese inspired Jewellery, who also collaborate in the past with (my idol) Rainbowholic! I  have admired this stuftf for long and finally the pieces are back in stock that I wanted. So I wanted to share this review with you all.



To Order from Enji you will find her online store here
Enji on storenvy. Some retailers also stock her stuff such as Kawaii NOLA *waves* It was actually Kawaii Nola's instagram who were showing off the products from Enji that pulled me into making my own order!
Am so happy to be a proud owner of these pieces and I may have ordered a (Rainbowholic x Enji ) more for this month. huhuh!



As you can see, I order 2 pieces that came to $27 dollers which is about  £16 something. I got the '' KyAAA'' long chain necklace and the 'Suki' (Love) in Japanese earring. (Note the earrings come as a single item NOT a pair.) I picked the one with the black and red , it was a hard choice as I wanted the more colourful one but I wanted one that I could wear with any outfit and I find black is the best option.
My order was placed on the 9th of the month and it came about 2weeks or so after . I can not mind the exact date but it was rought 2-3weeks which I expected and was happy for the wait. Well they are coming all the way from Indonesia! 


When I got my order it came in a box shaped parcel unforntailly - this had been battered about in the post . *tear* I was a bit worried about the products because acrylic can snap . However all the products were wrapped inside and nothing was damaged. no wonder because it took me like 20mins to get into the securely wrapped items! haha! After 20mins of tackling the bubble wrap I got to my items.
 The items are lovely very bold looking and in a way very simple colour are in black in text ''KyAA'' Which is a word often anime characters often say when in shock - its quite cute! I guess its like the word for '?!?!'  it is placed one a  big white speech bubble and on a very long black chain. I have only tried it on to see how long it is- hehe.I'ts so cool!

The earring is made up of 3 pieces of acrylic the Japnese is Suki which means love the top and bottom pieces are the Kanji and the middle piece is a cute pair of red hot lips! I love the red lips heehee, it is also a dangle style of earing and its adorable . With the fact is acrylic its light weight so, no pulling on my ears! yay!



I have worn it many times already it looks so cool on and many folks have commented on how cool it is and wanted to know what it means - its a pleasure to tell others it means love- my love for Japan. My order also came with a cute business card from the store. The best thing and maybe why I love this shop a lot is the fact the owner has a keen love for Japan, I have spoken to her in the past and she is very polite and very lovely. Also when my items where posted she found out the items shipping was less and even refunded me the difference- which I thought was extremely thoughtful and honest, as some folks or companies would not bother and say nothing! That really tugged a string on my heart and made me a retuning and supporting customer more so thanks to the great customer care, great products and service.

Am really looking forward to what is in store for Enji and its Products so please do give them some support by checking em out and show them some love!

New Wig Set


Hey Cuties!
Today my wig order came in, its not much of a order but am super happy cause its come right in time for the maid cafe am helping out at on saturday! I was worried my blonde in pink wig was gona tie me down with weight of the clip ins. 
which would annoy me and there is way to much hair I think it would just not work...So when Lockshop announced the new set in stock I was happy to see it was a short bob style wig with 2 clip ins. That you can add to the bob style and make it look extra kawaii!

They come in a range of colours I loved the Honey one but I knew I already had a base bob from the Candy Curl set in Pink Cherry so instead of buying a whole set I got the clip in's only and took a leap of faith that they would match in shade. 

All the colours are very nice and pretty  and you could mix and match the clip ins with the same base shade with the other wigs from the Lockshop.
So lets take a look at the photos!


All wrapped up pretty!



My new Clip in's in the shade Cherry Pink I adore that shade!
Wonder, who that fuzzy creature is to the side?! A clue to my next blog post maybe?!



Yup I got the ring too, I had been looking at it for some time and since I had the funds for it, I went ahead and ordered it too . I do not have many statement rings.

Again I used the cheaper method of shipping and I've not had any issues with shipping with this company at all - All my wigs but 2 have come form the lockshop. 


So this is the base wig  from Candy curls and these are the clip in's that are the same shade, As you can see they match. (Yay!) Again ive had the Candy curls set since they came out and compared to a brand new item from the lockshop the base wig is still as soft and silky as the clip in's. Which means I must be looking after my wigs well and the lockshop wigs are great products. 



Worn right out of the bag, You can keep them in the shape they are in. Or you can brush them out and or back comb them. I will be keeping mine in shape for the maid cafe. I might give them a back comb for my other J-Fashion styles.



The ring is adorable , its a free size so it fits every one by adjusting the back.
Sound out the letters and the symbol and its says Cutie-pie. You cant see from this picture but the ring has some glitter on the lilac colour.
Nyaaa!!




I am not wearing much make up today as during the week, I do not always have time hehe. I love my cute red lip tints though! They are great for Casual days and quickness!
Am super happy with my new clip in's, I can not wait to wear them as Maid Tartan and also what creative ideas I can come up with them.
I might think about the Honey set, but then I will have to wait till after Christmas as I've asked Santa for a Lockshop wig, hehe.

Have you tried Lockshop yet?  What wigs do you like?

Magical Nails, BarryM review.

Hello Cuties! Hope you are all well and staying super cute ,I am sure you all are!
So I have a review on some new polishes for you all these are from BarryM, My most loved brand for nail polish ever hehe.
Just of late they have brought out these sparkly pretties out and there is a few to pick from as well. I bought 3 of them and really want to get the other one.


You can get these in Duchess ,Princess , Lady , Countess and Majesty. I got the following Duchess the golden shade, Princess in the pink shade and Lady or pear white is called, in the white shade. They were also on a 3 for 2 offer when I went in Boots.
I love how magical anime princess like these shades are...to cute!


These are from the textured range, so when they dry the polish has some texture on the nails.
These shades are so cute! They come in the well recognised polish bottles that BarryM do.


Here on the ring finger is the Princess colour against the Duchess,The Princess is pink in colour and very girly I think its name is very fitting!


Here is the Duchess with the ring finger with Lady,I love the white one as it looks very Christmas like and reminds me of frosty snow outside its very pretty on and it was this shade  that I really wanted to buy. The Duchess is a mature shade of matt colours of dull pink, I cant quite pick out its shade it looks golden or nude brown with a hint of pink!?  Its a nice shade that I could wear when ever I want to get  a hint of sparkle. Cant keep a girl from some Sparkle right ?!
The Glitter also is a range of big and small particles. They need about 2 coats to get a nice shade and coverage and dry really fast.I think the lady and princess ones are my favourites. The only down side  about these is it takes a while to remove all the glitter and sparkles off... 
Please do check out Barry M more so on the facebook page as they have a game you can play where you can win prizes and discounts!

I hope you all enjoyed my magical nail review on these pretty nail polishes! 
Till next time..
