Kawaii Christmas Sanrio Mascots


 Hello there Kawaii Kittens. I guess its rather fitting to be doing this post as with it slowly turning into the month of all Christmas like stuff and it is spotted everywhere. As you know I often do Christmas Kawaii style , so when this parcel came in the post for me I was over the moon. Mixing Christmas and Kawaii is just the most amazing combo ever! All these items are from Cool_Nippon*. My all time loved and favourite seller on ebay. Get ready to feel all kawaii and Christmas like!



Here we have the well known Hello Kitty - the Kawaii queen herself. Dressed in her elsa snow like cape and instead of wearing a bow, she is wearing a shiny colour changing when the light hits it- snowflake.  She is adorable with her pink body and glittery shiny-ness all over. And she even has a faux fur like trim with her snow cape.

Hello Kitty Sanrio Egg mascots!

Hey every one I wanted to share my new video of my new collection of Sanrio Hello Kitty and her friends Egg- Mascots. They are the most adorable tiny things ever! Mine came all the way from Japan and yes thats the full set I have. Ah I really can not get over how cute these babies are!
You can get your very full set here on this link!

You can also find here my video on youtube of me showing you my kawaii haul of the full collection in much more detail !




My collection came in a huge box even though these are very small there is a fair few of these adorable bundles. I also ordered something rather big for myself which I will need to take a photo of, I have been cuddling it so much and using it as a pillow I forgot lol!

But yes! I love these little eggs of my fave Characters from Sanrio!
I do favour Kitty but the others are so sweet , each on is so soft with each of them having tiny detail on them . They are small enough to sit in your palm and large enough not to be lost in a collection.If you are like me I collect so much Kawaii stuff. I like how these are a good size for displaying on a shelf.

I always get 1st class service from the ebay seller I use and get tracking on my items so I can keep a eye on them and be ready for them to appear on my door step. I love it when I get a box full of kawaii in the post . I also really like the fact the seller has the items in the box wrapped well and even in a Sanrio bag, this makes it feel like a personal and professional touch being added to the order as if you had ordered right from the company itself. I am itching to order something for next month and for my birthday coming up! I just adore such cute items!

Hello Kitty - Cute bags

 Hey every one!
How are you all doing. Sorry about the lack of posts and such, Oh if you have not already noticed that there is a few blog style changes - Don't worry these are temporary as I have a new make over for my blog coming soon! Yay.
But that aside, I have a nice email found in my inbox - a sneaky look into some upcoming products from Sanrio.  Don't ask but I am a bit of a internet ninja haha. I do enjoy that thrill of hunting down kawaii products as my prey to add to my forever growing collection. 


Check out these handbags, Hello Kitty  seems to be a master at making bags look cute , Right?

Hello Kitty is going eco with re-useable bag friendly with these adorable fold away bags  with cute hearts on the zippers and you just pop them into your hand bag. Now that we have to pay extra for a plastic bag in the shops we can be caught short of a bag. So these are pretty handy to have a few and of course look super cute at the same time. I have a bunch of eco bags- they are really handy to have and do not rip like the plastic ones and can be used over and over again.

I also spotted this and these are so cute. I think they are the kind you place on your nails and file them to fit on the nail and ta-da! Wonder looking super cute nail art with our favourite Kawaii Character Hello Kitty! I wish I could use these nail wraps/ foils and make them look as good as these ones! I like colourful designs!





These pouch bags are pretty cute but am no the fence with them as I never use these things much . Like I have 5 make up bags and epp I do not use them! I keep all my make up in a drawer and a storage fabric box.  But loving that cute little pearl on the zipper!

What do you guys think of these upcoming items from Japan. Anything take your fancy. What would you like to see come over  to the UK. Am sorta liking those Eco bags even if I already have a few in other kawaii characters.

A Cotton Jelly Clothing Review


Hey cute things!

Do I have a treat of a review for you all today!
I have got some goodies that have come in the post the other day and I could not wait to share them with you. This is a sponsored review from Cotton Jelly an online streetwear fashion label based in Leicester, UK. I have heard of these guys before through a facebook page that I followed and what sparked my interest was the fact they are based in the UK, they had a great sense of fashion when it comes to new idea's trends and style oh and 2 words... HELLO KITTY!

When I spied not only do they do women wear of Hello Kitty they do men wear too.  So I have ordered from Cotton Jelly as a customer as well as being sponsored for this review. Going back to the men wear, I was delighted my dreams came true! I could finally let him share the love for hello kitty too by me getting  a loving and charming gift for my hubby ( last Christmas there.) to wear at his free will  by force and then put on the puppy eyes to make him feel bad if he did not put it on,cause am sure he really do love Hello Kitty as much as I do and he would  ,will wear it to work.  
In my defence the top is pretty tasteful and yes he wore it to work- am sure his team  at work thought it was super kawaii (staff were laughing on the floor of his work.) So I have been a past customer with Cotton Jelly so I can give you a insight to the website and how it works too!

So with that fun story out the way lets get on with the review!
I was invited to pick some items so clearly I picked the Hello Kitty items which you can find on the website.. here at cottonjelly.com, You go to the 'Brands' Section. The website is really easy to use and navigate.If you sign up with them you will get a small discount too!



Most of the items are tops for both men and women and I think there is a childrens range coming out soon! (Yay the whole Kawaii family ~we could all match!!) 
So what did I get , well this is what came by delivery man, A black bubble wrap jiffy bag, with a positive inspired quote on the back of it too.

Inside was a letter from the team who seem like a pretty awesome bunch and stickers for the company links and logo . And my items of course. Now I went for a M size cause they look rather tight but they are soft and stretchy, so I could of worn a small but am not a fan of things clinging to my body also I like my stuff a little baggy , all the sizing is on the website and easy to find but a M is a UK 12 and a S is a UK 10 for us Ladies! I would say these are good sized products .

Each top has a cute Hello Kitty design's for both men and women by Cotton Jelly ,which are approved and licensed with Sanrio. The other little beauty about these tops is the can be personalised! So OF course I had to get some done! And what better way that using the word Kawaii on the areas to be personalised. ( Yes - I also got hubby's name on his , that way he will never lose it or be able to disown the fact he has a hello kitty top. haha....) 
Mainly the personalised bit is either on the front or the back of the top and in the inner neck but my items had a '' THANK YOU from CJ (cottonjelly.)'' Which I thought was pretty smart and cute!



This is the top with KITTY all over it in black white and red. 
Its super soft to the touch and very sporty looking but of course can be used for every day wear , its not super kawaii in your face , so you can use this a lot with that hint of Kawaii to your outfit!
this is what I really like about this top. Being a mature  Kawaii Mommy is hard to keep on a low profile! But I love the fact its got my personalised Kawaii on it too hehe! OH and and and!!!
The back of the top! Check it out! everything on the back has its well back 'side' to it too!
I love this attention to detail!



The other top is a simple top with Hello Kitty's face with a moustache in a simple design. This top puts a smile on my face the whole moustache thing makes me laugh, again this is a simple white top with kitty her bow and her tash on the top , On the back it has small design to the back of the neck and a slogan saying '' Real men wear hello kitty !! Just like my hubby's one on the back! Its soft to touch and its a great top for being a little more cute or edgy in style but more of a causal cute which is perfect again for those days when you are not full on super Kawaii , or those dress down cool days with a fave top paired with skinny jeans and hello kitty vans of course!






The other top is a other Hello Kitty one ( of course!) This one is a bit more cuter! Its crammed packed with the Kitty Crew! You have all her family and friends on the front around the neck shoulders and chest and on the back too. It has a minty blue polka dot design on the top as well adding more cuteness to the top ,It is more colourful compared to the others and again its got my personalised bit on the back of Kawaii!







I thought since I show you the mens top as well , I really like the design on the mens top for the ' Real men wear Hello Kitty '' Range its pretty cool.  Hello Kitty it is actually supporting a full beard of Kitty's bows!
And when I did order his top of course I went ahead and treated myself to the crop top in pink of Hello Kitty which I fell in love with the sizing is a little different for the crop tops but this is a M size too and fits well. So it has my fave things on one top, Pink, animal print and Hello Kitty and on the back it has a 14 with you guessed it Kawaii on it.



Over all, I love Cotton Jelly products and its not limited to Hello Kitty so there is something for every one and every style. I found that they are durable products, wash well  and keep shape. They are unique and stylish . The price reflects the product quality. The whole process to order and such was all top scores everything came on time for ordering back there at Christmas and everything was well packed and presented. I am giving them a 10 Outta 10 for everything! What a Glowing report!

So if you have not checked them out already, then you are going to need all the links!

Tsum Tsum's little bundles of kawaii

Hey Cute things I thought about doing a super cute post on a item called Tsum Tsum's. Which means ''Stack Stack''.This was a online Japanese game a lot like Tetris , a puzzle game playing with pill shaped characters- being the Disney ones!
It didn't take long for them to produce palm sized plushes of all the characters and put them on the shelf's in Japan and America! It is every Kawaii characters dream to get some of these. They are so tiny and kawaii its unbearable. They all look very adorable with simple styles and designs keeping key elements to the characters from Disney .


 Even I have got my own ones Mickey Mouse, Minnie and Daisy Duck am on the hunt for Donald but of course I have to buy mine from over seas as Euro Disney do not stock them as fair as I am aware of. And its not just your Disney Characters becoming Tsum Tsum's other cute things too such as Alpacasso's 

Even Sanrio have made palm sized cute characters called '' Mame Petit Doll''  which I own a Hello Kitty one , They are very like the Tsum Tsum's but seem much bigger and filled with beans inside giving them more of a bean bag feel . The are more cube-ish shaped if that makes any sense?

San-x have palm sized cute-ness as well! These might not be ''stack-able'' as the others but they are tiny bundles of kawaii. I have a whole set of the Kiirotori's.


The best thing really is the lack of space they take up. I love big plush soft toys but when it gets to the point when you can not move from one side to the room with out knocking half of them over it is time to start re-thinking my kawaii collection- lol!

Kawaii Interview Time with Misadoll

Its Kawaii interview time every cutie! Today we have a very cute person to interview and they have so much to share with us that we are going to jump right into the interview! huhuh!
so lets get to it - Yattaa!

Hi , Hi please do tell us more about yourself!

 Hello!~ My name is Misadoll! I'm 23, and I work in video games production. Aside from that, I own a Japanese-inspired fashion brand Pastel Doll (https://www.facebook.com/pasteldoll666?fref=ts)  with my friends Kaidoll and Celestiadoll. I love Lolita Fashion, and I also really like Creepy Cute styles. 

Can you remember when and how did you get into Kawaii culture?

 Since I was a little girl, I've played video games, so I think those were the gateway into understanding more about Japanese culture and being interested in Japan generally. I started having an interest in anime, and later on in my life I started taking Japanese classes. After visiting Japan when I was 20, I was really hooked <3 It's a beautiful place and it's full of kawaii culture!

Hehe so your a Kawaii addict too?!
What did you find that appealed to you in Kawaii Culture?

copyright Pastel Doll
I like sweet things, and I think Lolita fashion is very elegant and beautiful. For me, it seems like kawaii culture builds communities of people with similar interests, and I think it's that sense of community that appeals to be me too.

Can you tell us what do word Kawaii mean to you ?

 Kawaii is something girls in Japan say A LOT. Kawaii is just the general essence of all things cute! I think it can apply to many different fashion styles, pieces of art, clothing and people! It's nice to hear such a positive word has become so popular <3

I love the sound of the word Kawaii myself , can you tell us what Kawaii styles would you say influence you and what would you say is your style?

I can never really settle on a particular style, and so I've got a mishmash of many subcultures in my wardrobe! My main fashion type is Lolita fashion and more recently, the Creepy Cute/Pastel Goth style. I also really like Fairy Kei, and have a fondness for Gyaru because it's a more grown up fashion. I love Ma*rs!

Where do you like to shop for your kawaii styles? ^^

 I usually buy a bunch of clothes in Japan and bring them back - Harajuku and Shibuya are amazing for cute fashion! I like Angelic Pretty for Lolita Fashion, and I own some items from GLAD NEWS and Ma*rs. And since I own Pastel Doll, I get all of my wigs from our store! <3 

WOAAH! that is so cool! Also I heard you won a model contest lately can you tell us more about it?

I did! It was all very exciting! Tokyo Royale is a store in Manchester specialising in alternative fashion, and they also have a range of Japan-inspired fashions. They hosted a modelling competition to be the face of the  brand, and to my surprise I won the contest! I was over the moon and very shocked, haha. I had a photoshoot with them not so long ago and it was really fun, I got to try on all sorts of cute clothes, and the other girls were really lovely too.

Sounds great congratulations , Can you give us a insight to what other Kawaii projects do you have planned?

For now my focus will be on Pastel Doll, I'm really excited to launch the store with my friends and I'm hoping people will really like our products. I want to bring this element of kawaii style to the UK and across the world! I love wigs, and I think ours are something new so I can't wait to show them to everyone. Stay tuned as we'll be launching sometime in the coming months!

OH can not wait to see how that works out for you *Excited* .Since being into Kawaii Culture would you say the way you do some things likes of your hair and make up ,Have they changed over time?

 I would say so definitely! Originally, I was a goth and only wore black, so becoming interesting in kawaii fashion has definitely changed my style a lot! My hair is very long at the moment with milky tea highlights, but over the years I've had many unnatural styles. My make-up is a little more subtle now for daily wear but when I'm going out or doing a cosplay, I bring out the circle lenses and lashes! 

Ah okay then do you have any 'can not live with out' items that are Kawaii?

 I have to say, I'm very fond of my pink Pokemon lunchbox from the Pokemon Centre in Japan. It's a little bento box, so I use it to take my lunch to work, haha. That's an example of a kawaii item I use everyday!

Kawaii- So where do you shop for Kawaii goodies?

 For goodies such as sweeties I usually head to Tofu Cute! Also, Artbox have a lot of cute things. I also really love Paperchase which is hugely popular at the minute and they have lots of cute stationary. 

What kind or anime or manga do you like and what would you recommend to some one?

 I'm hugely into girly anime, so I like romance stories. I really like Skip Beat because it's fun, dramatic, and the main character seems really relatable and realistic! I also like Stepping on Roses which is a lot more fantasy based. Love Com is great because it's really funny! And finally I'd recommend Peach Girl because it's a classic love triangle story!

Can you tell us music what do you listen too?

I used to do a radio show called Moshi Moshi and it specialised in J-pop and K-pop so those are my favourites! I like all the typical bands like 2NE1, Girls Generation, 4minute, Perfume, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu etc. I listen pretty much exclusively to these bands but I do like some other artists like Pretty Reckless and Porcelain Black.

Wow thats a lot of great music! Who would you pick Sanrio or San X ?

Sanrio <3 I went to Sanrioland, and omg the sparkles!

Haha!Am super jealous Sanrioland
!!! Okay And who would you say is your most loved Kawaii Character?

I'm gonna go classic here and say Hello Kitty. I own so many kitty items it's unreal (I doubt as much as you thought Tartan!) * Tartan Laughs out loud and grins*
 My favourite character would probably be Sonic x Hello Kitty which is a plush character I won in Segaland. 

Do you have a Kawaii Idol or some one that inspires you?

 I think Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is amazing because she's built up a whole unique style and brand for herself. I also really love Sugarpill, because the way they built up their business is very inspiring especially for us as we are starting a business too! 

If you could go anywhere for a day where would you go and what would you do?

Well I would kinda have to say somewhere crazy, like the moon. My friend Celestiadoll loves space, so maybe she'd want to come too! 

Am your KAwaii Fairy and I want to know what would you wish for if you were granted 3 Kawaii wishes?

-To spread kawaii culture around the world! 
-For my kawaii business to do well <3 
-And of course, world peace! I couldn't leave that one out.

Thank you so much for taking the time to interview me! <3

Well thats our Kawaii interview wrapped up with Misadoll! Check out the links below for the store and more about Misadoll and her
Projects!

Kitty and her twin Mimmy

Have you ever noticed that Hello Kitty get all the glory and fame?
I was watching Hello Kitty the Tv series with my daughter and I found that I was rather fond of Mimmy.
She is a bit more Shy than Kitty but she quite a funny character and can be rather sarcastic about how Kitty eats way to much and is so lazy at times.I have to say I equally love them both.


It got me thinking, You really do not see much Mimmy Products, Well not many at all unless she is with her sister Mimmy. Maybe it is a UK thing but even I (Addicted to all things Kawaii.) Maybe own 3 Mimmy items that all came as a set. Two of which are Plush sets and the other is a Plastic Figure. I did buy one tiny Mimmy but it was for those cute Hello Kitty Play sets for my daughter- I like to make sure she builds up the sets and have the full collection.
I would love to see more of Mimmy and her own style in products, I think Mimmy needs to shine out and be given a chance. I do love Kitty but because they are twins, I would adore even more that if there was more 'Twin themed' items or even 'Best friends' ones that include Mimmy as well .
What about matching Twin baby-grow's made for baby twins or all in ones aka oneies for us older fans.
I would love to see just a range for Mimmy but I do doubt that as a company Sanrio may have thought Mimmy would not make as much money as Hello Kitty. Some times I images that Mimmy is crying in the corner as her sister claims all the benefits lol!
Any way I guess am just rambling a bit... But I thought I would share my new Mimmy and Kitty Figures.
I got them at a great price £5 and that was with free shipping! The only annoying thing was the box that the figures were are displayed in got damaged in the post.
However there is no damage to Kitty and Mimmy! So here is some photos.

They are super cute in there famous outfits that match and wearing their bows. They are 10cm tall and light weight plastic material. I will be using mine for displaying on the shelves. I would like to put up in the spare room.


Till next time, I hope you enjoy my post!
Stay Kawaii!

Hello Kitty Penguin and Strawberry series

Hello Kawaii fan's.
I've just come across the cute new Hello Kitty Penguin theme.
''Everything is cooler with Hello Kitty.''Its really cute and sweet looking, all the items seem to be see- through and clear, the images are Hello kitty with her Penguin friend who also wears a bow like Hello Kitty too.
Kawaii!
I wonder when and if these will come over the the UK?



How cute are these Hello Kitty's in Plush and cushion styles, And her little kawaii Penguin friend too!
N'awww Kawaii.


There seems to be a range of cute see through bags too.
The other range I spied on the US Sanrio Website was the Strawberry range which looks very summery and mature looking.
I really love the plush, but its the plushies that I collect so, yea hehe.



Do these strawberry cuties look adorable?! They also look ever so fuzzy and soft. I love the cute-ness and strawberry theme. There is also slippers and other accessories that can be found the the range too.
So sweet.


Those slippers look comfortable and soft. I bet that Cushion would look great on my own bed, hehe!




I really hope to see more of these over here! Way to cute to miss out!
So many cute things, which ones do you like the best?
Till next time.
Stay super Kawaii!
Tartan.
