A Yume Kanzanshi review.- Hair accessiores


Hello every cutie! I hope you are all well and happy- happy Kawaii! 
 Today I have a sponsored review from a very elegant company called Yume Kanzanshi. But I think I shall explain a little more on what a Kanzashi is. A Kanzashi is a traditional hair ornament or to me and you a hair accessory used in traditional Japanese hairstyles and was once thought to ward off evil spirits ~eek! .  These hair accessories are worn by (not limited to) geisha and maiko in Japan.They are very pretty and beautiful pieces and  if like me you are enchanted by the traditional side of Japan and the beautiful charming geisha.
Am sure you will very much like my review with a hint of Kawaii! Important links you will need are these Facebooktumblr and the link to the Yume Kanzashi Shop.


I got a lovely parcel in the post from Yume Kanzanshi whom is a friend of mine. She has a deep passion for all things from Japan and puts it all into her work of her items she sells.
You can find the most elegant looking pieces fit for a bride to be to a princess and each item is handmade. Or  why not take a look at the colourful Kawaii range of hair accessories.


Here is the item, oh my gosh is soo pretty! This photo makes it look small but its a fair size when you see it in your hair. It is made of a Sky Blue fabric and has coloured sports all over it on the print as well as my most favourite things to eat Macarons!
In the centre of the main flower, at the top is a cute pearl with a elegant attachment  to the fabric with give it a lovely touch. The Back of this Kanzanshi is 2 fittings, One being a alligator grip and the other like a pin , seen in the photo.


This piece at the back is firmly secured on to the accessory . The great thing about having two attachments to the accessory is how versatile it can become.  Below are my photos of it on a medium length wig  and the other on one of my blazer style jacket. You really could use this in many different ways .



I already have plans with outfits to wear this with so if you are interested in seeing my outfit ideas and my other photos you can find me on instagram! Instagram link
I hope you like my review, I suggest you check out Yuma Kanzashi and her up coming designs that she is working on and has planned, one other item in the shop are these pretty necklaces all handmade.




Till next time!

The Sunshine Daisy reivew

The weather has been so rotten over the past few days,I really needed something to cheer me up.Today I was delighted to get a tiny little box covered in love hearts with my name on it.



It was my Sunshine Daisy order!
*^__^*
I have been looking forward to my order so its well cheered me up.
Im so happy it really was a Glitter filled popper when I opened it! 
*winks*
So what did I order?!
I ordered the lavender shooting star necklace I fell in love with the Shooting star range,not only is it cute Stars are a symbolic thing of mine with being pagan as the points of the stars represents the elemental energy s around us but also the fact the range is so CUTE like a cute-ness overload, I do love stars and the moon so much.
Hehe.
I spent a long time admiring all the products,Which there is a fair range of so many sweet things.
So I got my order and was over the moon.
The postage only took a week!
(coming from the USA too!)
The parcel was secure and well sealed everything was wrapped up in its own bag  which were cuddled up together in gift wrap,to be open with a shower or Kawaii love of glitter and small shineys!
*Imagen me cooing over the shower of Kawaii glitter and shiny show*



So yea after my Kawaii shower,I opened up my new necklace,its cute I mean super cute,I wondered if the pendent was going to be heavy but no its so light!



It is also bigger that I thought and its got the main pendent being the star in lavender with glitter in it,its got a smooth but frost finish to the star too.
Either side of the Star are 2 Kawaii baby lavender safety pins again they are light too so this is like a necklace that will not hang on your neck and feel like you are being pulled down to the earth.
Its on a Pink light weight Chain which is a short  so it sits nicely on just below on the collar bone and with a really good size clasp,Know I've worked with jewellery and i can not stress how much easier life is with bigger claw hook clasp!See those small ones they drive me round the bend!
So big thumbs up there! 

no flash

with flash you can see the glitter in the star!
(>.~ ) *~chu wink!

I'm very happy with my new necklace even my Lil Chibi bean said it was ''Prettys'' Bless her.
Because The Sunshine Daisy is on Esty is super easy to order!
Also the super kawaii owner who is a total sweetheart is interested in myself doing some small advertising  and a little bit of modelling for her Esty store with a few of the products.
Which I am very flattered about as she has so nice about it!

And Im keeping that suprise for you by not showing you them products so you are gona have to go over to The Sunshine Daisy Face Book
to see those coming soon and then look out for them at
 Esty shop!
Also you may get more of a heads up on their
(^A^)

Am I mean?! lol
Well you all gona have to wait and see!
But till then,Stay Super Kawaii with The Sunshine Daisy!

Staying Kawaii with me!

Its hard work Staying Kawaii Which is why I Changed the Direction of my Blog though don't worry followers of the Craft I will still post some things regarding those topics,However up here in Scotland its extremely hard to get hold of Kawaii Stuff which can drive a Kawaii Lover mad!So I thought would try and make it Easy for not just those in Scotland to get hold of those Kawaii things out there.

Kawaii means Cute in Japanese.

Kawaii in Kanji .

Online is the best way I have found stuff but you may have to Google more that the word Kawaii as a lot will come up,Try words like Lolita,Gyaru,Kitsch,Cute,Emo,Punk and Harajuku help too.
Places like Ebay and Esty have hidden Gems but can take a long time to get through all that stuff and sorting out the good stuff from that bad again this is where I come in,I search out and hunt down Things that are Kawaii to save you the time and review or show pictures of what I got but also I want to help out those on the other side,such as the shop owners and sellers.


So going back to keeping Kawaii its hard work,I like to wear something Lolita inspired or cute looking most days and where I live right know its really hard to find that sorta stuff so I have to create my looks form scratch or spend a insane amount of money out on a real Lolita outfit and the range is very limited too!So half the time I don't even like what I do find,So have to resort to high street shops or markets to find something that even hints on a Kawaii Style, Accessories seem to be a bit easier mind you and I have gotten hold of some gems that have gotten lots of notice and complements too.
I also like the idea of home made items to mass production items when it comes to Accessories and outfits and things that you would not come across in Primark and Top shop so to say.
But they are starting to produce a lot of cute things slowly.
The other thing is I have found is that i have to Travel to big city's likes of London Glasgow and Edinburgh to get an Alternative good shop for things Kawaii and semi Gothic Lolita/Emo that happen to look very cute and would work with outfits and for around the house.Yes my kawaii-ness has spread out to the bedroom...my poor husband!

So If you are a Seller with Items/clothing/Other products that are Cute looking or smell sweet and are down right adorable then please get in touch with me as Id love to hear from you !

You just need to send the products details and information or even any give-aways that you are doing and if your really nice send me the product! 
 *Big cheesy wink*
That way  I could even write up a review of the product for you since this is like a free advertising service for Sellers and My posts get uploaded to my page on Facebook KawaiiKreations for my Likers and of course I tweet too!
You can contact me at my email marna@aurora-healing.co.uk
