Kawaii Mummy-Ideas for little ones fun meal times!

Hello every Cutie and Kawaii mummy out there!
Today I will be letting you into some of my Kawaii secrets for ideas for little ones meals! Yep this is a post for all you kawaii Mummys out there! 

Some times it really hard to get our little chibi-cuties to eat their meals - we all have and all will go through this stage or stages of them not wanting what we put in front of them...huhuh. But don't worry its only a phase,So please don't stress your self's out, I found after stressing out over wasted food and tears. That you just have to go with the flow!

So today I thought that I would share these ideas that  would be at least a a few ideas for food for your little chibi's! Am going to start off with the idea to pick super cute cutlery plates and cups too, I have found all cute characters in your local supermarket from Hello kitty to Mickey mouse. It's good to pick the characters your little one knows of to help make it look all about more encouraging and appealing for them to use.

Or why not get it in lots of rainbow colours in your cutlery! We have lots or pretty rainbow shades of forks and knifes in our kitchen drawer that I bought from the seasonal out doors summer sections (plastic picnic sets!) Such a clever idea! This some times really helps encourage little ones to use their own cutlery .

Preparing food-

The other idea I like to do is with the use of being a bit arty and kawaii is with the use of the cookie cutter, you can come up with so many ideas with simple shapes to kawaii character shapes! If you don't have a Cookie cutter even using a scone cake cutter can make circle shapes or why not just cut up the food in to shapes.

Say good bye to dull square toast in the morning's and say 'Hello' to Kitty and some '' Love'' heart Marmite toast- yum! Its me that likes the Marmite 

Top- Tip ,If your little chibi is old enough , let them help get meal times ready! It can be very stressful if you are in a hurry but if you can give them the time to help , you may find they enjoy eating something that they have made for them self! It can be as simple as spreading their own toast!

As well as using cookie cutters, mould trays bento rice moulds can all be used to create a interesting looking meal. Why not decorate the meal on the plate and make a picture too?!

Encourage little chibi's to take part in making the pictures however sometimes the cute food pictures might not work so try cutting food up in small pieces or even grate food. And with a bit of imagination, who would say no to a Cheese (Grated) hill. My chibi loves to grate her own cheese.

Making food look fun can make it super Kawaii too! It's all about presentation!


Why not find food stamps with shapes these sandwiches look soo yummy!
Oh and don't forget to cut up the ham, cheese fruit, veggies to go inside the sandwiches too!
You can find lots of ideas form bento box websites and all over the internet , take what you want from the sites and apply it you your own ideas as it do not need to be all about Japanese food, you can pick the foods you and your chibi's love to eat and make them look so cute.
Home pack lunches for the little ones and Kawaii lovers alike will love these ideas or  why not make picnics out and about  kawaii and use bento food pickers or dividers will add lots more fun and cuteness to meals! Oh and dont' forget to make sure your lunch containers are cute looking too!!

Till next time!

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!
