How to make a Kawaii Christmas

AH I love Christmas, I love the whole setting it up and decorations!
I often take some down time to get ready as most of you know that I also have a sweet Christmas star's birthday on the same day. Yup Chibi Bean will be a whole 4 years old on Christmas day! Kyaaa!!! She is already excited with seeing me getting it all ready.
Before Chibi came along I did not really do much at Christmas at all, I even tried to work it if I could so I didn't have to do the whole Christmas thing, I lost interest in it. But of course that has all changed since Chibi bean came along! I put all my energy into it every year now!
This is the 4th year of my some what famous Hello Kitty tree but am not giving out details of it all just yet!
Instead this post is showing off my DIY Kawaii ideas and other Ideas to make things Kawaii!
Wanting to give a kawaii make over to your Christmas is pretty easy, you just have to think...well think Kawaii!
Recycling old Christmas decorations is a cheap option and you can make them as good as a new item in the shop!Changing the colour theme to whites and pastels or mixing soft colours is also a great idea!

I took this old mini white tree and a mini pink wreath I had that I wanted to recycle so I took the pick like branches off the wreath and attached them with strong glue to the thin and some what looking sorry for its self tree. I was very happy with my new pink and white tree that not only looks Kawaii but much fuller too!


But what happened to the wreath's base? Well I wanted to add more colour to my Kawaii Christmas theme and happened to be making Pom poms and created a new Pom pom  wreath along side a new Pom pom Garland to hang up! And I even used sparkly wool and added extra glitter for fun.I can not wait to hang it up on the wall! Pom poms really can make something look super cute!


 I also made with Pom Poms cute Candle bases ( mind you might not be very particle with wool and a open flame.)Which some of you might see at the next up coming Maid cafe as well as the garlands too! Also keep a eye out for my new Pom pom hair band I made thats pastel and Kawaii with Glittery like snow !

Check out this cute Kawaii Christmas Bauble!


As well as having fun with pinks whites pom poms and glitter I also have been having lots of fun with Christmas Baubles, which I wanted to make more of but never mind I have next year to make more right?
I wanted to make my own ones and it was really easy to make these! Getting hold of material was also easy to do , well I did get my baubles a bit to big for the kawaii things I wanted to add to them - whoops!- But then I found something to go in them and found smaller baubles to use.
I have made a DIY kawaii video to share with you all here on my youtube Channel!!!

Aswell you can follow the easy steps shown below in photos too cause they were so much fun I pick Kawaii Characters I love lots of Hello Kitty and my fave kawaii bear Rilakkuma and his friends too! Not only that they each live in their own wonderland of snow!

You will need!
Clear Plastic Christmas Baubles that can come apart.
Craft Glue
Small Toys or Kawaii Characters to fit inside the Bauble.
Glitter Snow of your choice.
And some Rhinestones to decorate.

Split the bauble and attach your rhinestones both in the inner side and outer side. Make sure you leave space between the rhinestones. I used tweezers to pick them up and place them in the Bauble!



Using Craft Glue or Strong glue to  place your Kawaii item inside and leave to dry!
Mine too 5mins or so. Then you want to add in the Snow, I added mine to the other half of the bauble to make it easier, not to much you don't want to lose your Character in all the snow!



Then using glue to seal the outer edges but both sides together and then add some string .
And there you have it Kawaii Characters in Christmas baubles! Just like that Easy!!!
Of course you can make em any size you want or any theme you want! I can not wait to see any you make and how they will look on your Kawaii Christmas Tree's!
I am looking forward to having these on my tree so much! Way to cute.


Not only making you own stuff will be fun but also it will be unique to you and your Christmas!
Keep a eye of my final Kawaii Christmas post coming real soon.
Till Later.

Rilakkuma and Kittens



Its time for a Shop and item Kawaii review!

Way back in July I caved in when I finally laid my eyes on these darling- and I mean darling cute, super adorable images of the new Collection with Rilakkuma , Our loveable bear dressed as a Cat! So naturally I had to hunt these cuties down and get my paws on them! Cause I love Cats! 
I had to do a pre-order and did this with Mira Plush a company I found via Facebook. Thanks to winning a small giveaway they held. 

So I ordered way back in July and the shop said they were expecting the items in around october, I was very content with the customer service and updates I got. Even to say that they had shipped my orders.
My order came the other day  so the shipping once dispatched took about 1 and half weeks to arrive. 
I placed 2 orders and they both came at the same time.*Warning heavy photo spam of Kawaii-ness!*


My items came in a bubble wrap bag and sealed in their own plastic bags.









As you can see there is so much detail as Rilakkuma as a little tabby cat, He has the markings, a Red collar with golden bell, paws on him and even little whiskers on his checks. He is super soft and soo cute!
I was going to order Korilakkuma but cause am such a big fan of Kiiroitori  ( the yellow bird) I got him in his Cat outfit instead! Again he has a lot of cute cat details just like Rilakkuma too!




I paid about $25 for each plush and I was very happy with the service and items I got I would return back to the seller again and would recommend them.



Hope you enjoyed the review!

Cherry blossom weekend

Hey every cutie . How are you to day?
 Thought I would share with you what I got up to this weekend.
 I got my self some cute new pieces for my wardrobe and made sure that they can be mixed and matched for the summer months too! I was quite happy these came for this weekend.

Some new lippy stick by BarryM and new mascara which I picked up in blue by mistake! Silly me.But I have been using both the Red lippy and Blue lash statement , I really like having blue eyelashes hehe.



Hopeful for summer. Sunglasses in the shape of Hearts, A tartan dress and new red blazer, I seem to have a thing for red right now.

I seem to have a few more kawaii hauls still in the post so I will post about them when I get them too. But I wore my new Tartan dress at the weekend when I met up with a local lolita friend. We really just spend the day wondering about looking for some Sakura trees and made a stop in at the Cutie shop. A tiny little shop of Kawaii-ness, ( I really need to ask next time, to take photos of inside the tiny shop!).



Yummy treats and some Kawaii goods of Domo and Rilakkuma.






The Meadows were in full bloom and looked stunning . There was a lot of others taking photos and videos of the cherry blossoms. I guess they will not last much longer the wind has blown them about .

Hope you enjoyed the Cherry blossom photos !

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!

Kawaii Rainbow times.

Hey every Cutie!
Cute pillows!
How are you all doing!?

I wanted to share with you some new Kawaii items I have bought of late, Once again I caved in and bought some cute jewellery items form Enji! *waves*

I love her jewellery so much, its so original and Kawaii! So I was playing about with new things I have learnt with my camera and got some super Kawaii shots with the jewellery nyaa! I hope you like them.

So I also got myself some cute pillows to use in my room they are rainbow themed. They are very lovely and soft.  One is a Rainbow shape and the other 2 are heart shape with Rainbow colour's on them. Very cute hehe I also added my san-x bear pillows in the photo for added cute-ness.  They look very cute in my spare room which I have been working on .
 Now I have made the choice that it will be my 'Kawaii room'' A place I can escape too. But will be doubled up as my *Drum roll* Photography studio room!!! It was meant to be the Guest/ Rilakkuma room but things change haha, It will still be a Guest room too though.
With re painting items white and putting up white shelves to keep the room light and airy for shooting with the (pop up) Back sheet frame with drop, lights, kit ect. I will be needing this, for the next coming months for my photography projects.

Kawaii Ham - Ham loves Enji!


So  I have been setting up my Kawaii and cute items up on the shelves in the room and because I repainted the book shelf there is some kawaii on that too! Yay.
 I have my cute anime and vocailoid figures up on the shelf easy for me to get hold of them as I like doing toy photography, I also have a few smaller plush dolls on this shelf   I have a few Hello Kitty's and Mimmy's here too. As well as a couple of Cat themed things. I do like my Cats. Oh and of course dont go forgetting about my Lucky Cat and Domo too! Am also a Momiji Fan, I have been for ages and I felt like my dolls were not getting much love in the Kitchen so I moved them into the spare room to be admired instead. 

Also this month I caved in - 3 months into this year and I failed. I bought something Hello Kitty
Yep, I was trying to get at least half way through the year and not buy anything Kitty..whoops!
How ever I really happy with the new bag I got. Its bright and a great size - Ah  I just love it! So I have been using it a bit more than my other bags and every time I have used it, I have had a great response and comment on my bag. From '' OH MY LOVE THAT BAG'' to''Wow that is a cute bag'' from other Mummy's at playgroup. Who also admire my other ''funky'' as they say bags and even the staff and customers at the local shop comment on my bags. Which then they were left drooling over my purse too. I some times wonder if these folks have never seen cute before and maybe like to see more of it appearing. hehe its nice to get positive reactions- regardless.
As I  said in the past month or so am going to many events, in April so I should be able to blog lots more. If there is any thing you want me to cover or take photo's of ( keep it clean.) I would like to hear your suggestions!
I hope to put up a post soon of my Toy Photography yay! so watch this space.
Till later <3 Tartan.

Totoro post!


Hey every one, how stormy has this winter been?! and Christmas is drawing nearer and nearer,,Kyaa am so excited! So much so when I got a box of pink Birthday decorations full of  cute-ness for Chibi bean! Am not sure who the bigger kid is me for wanting to turn the house into a pink girls zone or little miss chibi bean whom is singing in advance ''Happy birthday ,give me Kitty Cake'' to herself.... Kya Kawaii!!
I guess I will be on and off around Christmas due to the celebrations but I will pop on to show you what Santa has left for us.

Today I shall spread some Christmas Kawaii cheer with you all!
I been saving up for a new plush addition to my collection, I am hoping to be gifted a Domo Kun one this Christmas to add to my collection also all to go into my ''Kawaii'' Room that am slowly doing up. If you follow me on Instagram there will be a high chance you have seen my new plush.

Who knows this big old grin...?



This Kawaii looking face?


Yep its Totoro!

Yay! Totoro is all set for Christmas too!
He is huge! So heavy and soft too! I love him very much. He sits in our Dinning room for the time being. teehee!
 As well I also got hold of a really cute new hoodie and a new onesies- I own a pikachu

 one but its far to big for me so I might  order the size down and get chibi bean one. But its a Rilakkuma one that is due to come some time, I have really fallen in love with Rilakkuma!  He is also on my list of must get in over the top size plushes-huhu. Teehee.
Getting back on track here is my hoodie! (sorry for the not so good images but was so cloudy and dark.)


Here is it with no hood up, its rather thin but I like to throw it on at night on top of what am wearing already!
I would like to put it with a totoro themed outfit ,not sure when but it am sure it would look cute. I might keep it for a convention.


Here is the Hoodie with Hood up as you can see it has Totoros face on the hood and his big cute grin, not forgetting his cute whiskers and ears too! cute! I also took out my pink wig for a change. 


Hope you like my cute Hoodie and new Totoro!
