Tartan , Kawaii and the BBC

Hey , guess what. So last week the word Kawaii was added to the English Directory was announced. Which is pretty cool- I saw a program about how they 'add' words to the directory and its something to do with how often the word is used verbally and in text via social media and the internet ..( Big brother really is watching!)  The program was rather interesting itself but hooray for KAWAII!  I wonder if they counted the amount of times I use it?! huhuh!?

So any way a reporter from the BBC wanted to do a written feature on Kawaii and through the great vines of contacts. I found my self making a telephone appointment for a interview the following day.

I was excited but oh my goodness I was really nervous, What would they ask? What would they like to know, What if I screw up?! What if I looked like a fool... - gahh!!
Yup I did not sleep well that night but after the school run the next day I awaited my phone call.



I really did not need to worry, My phone call was just some questions and my thoughts and feelings on Kawaii. I did not really know what sort of angle they were after for the feature so I did my very best. I mostly wanted to paint Kawaii in the best light possible and make it interesting to some one who has never heard of it or might of wondered what it is. We spoke about fashion and Kawaii Culture as well. 
After words I got a lovely email back thanking me . Which was very sweet.

And here is the final feature, with myself and the UK company Cutesy Kink a online fashion store. 
I think I did well.





Am very pleased to see that Kawaii is getting some sort of notice and appreciation.
As well I hope its the start of something exciting and a wave of Kawaii movement.

I find it really sweet that because its to do with the BBC I have family suddenly taken a interest my personal love for Kawaii. I some times wonder if its time for me to take a step up and venture down a path with my Kawaii passions.

What do you think?
Till next time! Keep it Kawaii xox

Christmas shopping


Hello everyone, my goodness it is getting so cold! Okay I admit that a person who feels the cold all the time. Which does not make much sense when am living in Scotland, Right?
So I have made a start to my Christmas Shopping ,when I think about it. It is almost done!
Yesterday I went out to a shopping centre with my wee family and bought a few more gifts for my friends.Its only a week in November and am poor already! I think its due to the fact I got back online ans soon as my change of address details changed over I was itching to get spending for Christmas and treat myself! Having no internet really scarred me...(drama queen, Blogger 1st world problems LOL!) 


So on a whim we went to a near by shopping centre after my Doctor appointment- Ive got a trapped nerve in my neck that is effecting my left hand nerves too.  *Sobs* 

Nothing a bit of retail therapy can not help right? I finished of 3 gifts and got myself a new 2 new belts as my jeans slide down - Don't you hate being stuck between sizes!!
So here is some photo spam for you all!


The centre had its Christmas decorations up the size of those ball's hanging from the roof was a bit scary. I hope they don't fall!!
 

I love white Christmas trees something magic about them hehe 


Am guessing that seat is for a VIP nearer Christmas...not gona catch me near him though, Did you know I am completely scared to death of folk who dress up as Father Christmas, Really creeps me out!

The bear and the polar animals are so cute though.



Some Images below the tree so sparkly and glittery.


How cute is this little display which was found at the main doors of the centre.

 I think the little bridge was really sweet, hehe.


After a good bit of wondering around the shops, avoiding Chibi's beans refusal of going into shops and tantrums we stopped for a bite to eat and drink.
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?


I have been crazing Hot Chocolates of late am not sure why maybe cause they are so cosy and sweet!
so yummy!I also got a cherry muffin. 
It was super yummy and freshly baked too. When I got back home I found a ''sorry you were out card.''After some debate with Hubby over who's parcel it might be. We had to wait a while till we could go to the post office to collect it. But lucky for me Hubby went out to pick it up,to my delight it was for me, Haha! Yea he when in the huff as he is waiting on lots of pieces for the computer and wires and all that geeky techi stuff of his.


What was inside?! Well it was my long awaited Rilakkuma bear!


a Neko Plush, (to go with my other one from MCM Scotland.) 2 sheets of Stickers and a dust plug for my phone in the shape of a bow in hot pink. Ypu can check out my instagram on the link for more photos.
As well as a busy day I have also been working on a new side project called ''Kawaii Kraze'' I hope to do a post about it real soon!
Lots more to come to the blog!

Making memories-a mummy post.


Hello every one. Hope you are all having a lovely week and staying very Kawaii!
I guess this is going to be a bit of a mummy like post today .As you readers are well aware this month is my final month in this house, we will be moving at the end of the month and getting a new bigger house to fit us all in with a bit of breathing room, hehe. The main thing for me as a muma to Beanie is that she grows up in a nice place and goes to a good school. Myself on the other hand, I didn't really get to make a mark on this current house. I have always felt like I have been renting this place. Its not felt like a cosy home...maybe cause am always cold in this house.
Any way because we are moving rather far from my own family, I wanted to have some sort of photo arrangement set up in the new house with a bit of Kawaii added to it of course! 

The 1st thing I did was treat myself to a new Camera,a Instax FugiFilm 25 mini. An a adorable looking instant camera aka a Polaroid Camera.A simple Point and shoot. I have found with a Digital Camera that as they may be saved on the computers but I forget to print them off. So I treated myself to the Instax.




Its a nice cute thing and makes really cute photos that come out in seconds to develop in a few minutes later.Perfect I have had  a lot of fun with this already its a great way to make new memories.
One of my idea to show off my new photos came shortly after seeing this really cute looking memo board on Facebook and I fell in love with it.
I got this cute idea at The-Kawaii-Cupcake on FaceBook.
It only cost me 16 for a Hand made Pink and white spotty memo board with little flowers added to it and small hearts,It fitted in my idea of new decoration for the new house so I ordered it right away.
I had to share the photos of it as I did take it out wrapping to look at it, teehee.
Its just so cute and pretty.
I cant wait to add to this and hang it up in my new Kitchen! Hehe.


It will come in handy for shopping lists and to do lists, which I seem to be making all the time these days. 


The colours are just lovely .


There is some cute girly details added to the conner's.


As you can see I still need to fill it up with Kawaii over load! Most of my stuff is in boxes ,so once we move into the new house I can go a bit more Kawaii Crazy with it hehe!
I hope to add more Photos to it as well! (Ill make lots of cute memories too!)
Its very cute and been made with love, It would make a cute new house gift for some one or even for a student or Teenager to have up in their room as a organiser of some sort hehe.

Do any of you like to do Cute things to add to your homes/Rooms. I hope to be adding a lot of  Kawaii touches around my new house. Which I also hope to share with you all once I am settled and the internet is up and running.So Check out The Kawaii Cupcake Facebook page and the new Esty Shop they are planning to open too!!

Till next time

New shoes- Lolita Tartan and Sweet

Ah I think I have a bit of a back log of Blog posts here- with being so busy I forgot about my new shoes,
How that happen?!
Never mind here is a small Blog review on my 1st lolita shoes from Bodyline. I felt super nervous buying from them as the site is rather scary looking in some ways with charts and pop ups of ARE YOU SURE ?!
But I took a deep breath and only spent a small amount in case it all went wrong and ordered my 1st Lolita shoes!


Well the came in one piece and no damage.

Tartan Neko Maid


So I got my new wig last week...
I felt rather brave getting a Bright Blonde wig.
I never ever had blonde in my hair even as bright a blonde as this one.The wig I got was form the Lock Shop,Can not recommend this Store enough,More so know sadly Dreamy Stores has shut down.

TT__TT

So I will be so I will be most likely shopping at the Lock shop as I get most of my wigs there anyway.
It was interesting trying to pick a outfit to go with my new wig as I had to tone down on harsh colours of make up which is something I'm not used too,I also teamed it up with my new Kitty Ears with pearls on them and with my new Plushie Called Happy Kitty and transformed myself into a Neko (Cat) Maid.
I wore a off-brand Black and white JSK with a blouse and my hand made maid apron that I use a lot hence why there is a few marks on it from all my cooking and baking,That I do!
^ ^'



Happy Kitty is so cute and soft.Can you see the pin badge too?
Nyan Nyan Nyan!
 Review of wig from Lock Shop,
The wig is lovely and soft to touch,The fibres are silky and smooth,The wigs are so easy to look after too!
The service is great no hassles and the postage is good too.
The Store owner seeks out only the best for the quality of the wigs and you in safe hands with the Lock shop.You also get a complementary Wig cap with your order.
The Blonde colour is like a light bleach platinum blonde that fades into a powder pink.
The Wigs are light to wear and pass for real natural hair.
You can also cut in Bangs/Fringes or thin it out to a side swept look which I did.
I love this fun cute wig!
^V^

I ordered my Happy Kitty after finding the page on a group and feel completely in love with the Happy Kitty.
I had to get one and at such a great price!
There is also a ton of SUPER KAWAII KITTY goodies in there shop!
Kawaii~
Here is the Links!


Stay super Kawaii

Dollicon Shop Review

Oh Wow I know have 50 Followers on my Blog !
Not bad if I do say so myself!
I have not blogged as much as normal due to lack of time and modelling on the side but I have a nice Entry for you all.

Many a time I've seen a few Facebook share and links have come up on my news feed.
I also was Tagged in a photo of a cute necklace and got a sweet message about this online shop so I went to have a look at the web site.

This Online shop is called Dollicon,Its very new and they do not have very much on the website its self how ever they do update all the items on the face book.


The picture I was tagged in was a photo of a cute pony necklace.I really liked the colours so went ahead and ordered it.
It did not take very long for my order to arrive even though it came from China.

Its a adorable.
*^_^*
It reminds me of my love as a child of my little pony.
It came in Pink Blue and Cream with little jewels on it on a Blue Chain.
So Kawaii!
I got a good positive customer service and the young lady that makes her jewellery and is so sweet and very helpful..
The web site is clean tidy easy to use.
Their Facebook is Clean and tidy.I love the way they show case the Jewellery in the photos.


Oh so Pretty and Kawaii!
I have found a few other items that are so cute so may have to look into them.
So a big 5 star Kawaii Rate for Dollicon.

You can find them here at the links
The BRAND NEW Dollicon Website!

Super Cute things coming this way.

Hi~Hi !
So with some changes to my accounts and social networking pages,You may have noticed Ive changed my name on some thing's.
I've taken up a new nick name ''Tartan Kawaii!''
Cute huh?
It goes well with me being Scottish and Tartan can be really cute if you can dress it up like I did in the past with my Gothic Loli (Lolita) Outfit.

So there seems to be a lot going on,Currently I am selling off some things that I no longer need as at the back of my mind there is a chance of moving away from where I am know to some where closer to the Hubby's Work  so I want to make a fresh start even if its not for a while yet its always good to have a good clear out to then make room for new and Kawaii things!

Also  I did find out that in that area there are Scottish Lolita's who meet up there about's so that's really great I joined up on their group on Facebook to get to know some of them and they are so sweet!
(Thank you to all of those kind girls whom have welcomed me x)


So over at my Facebook page Kawaii Kreations is has been renamed Tartan Kawaii and I am know a ''public figure''.
Sounds important hehe.
I will be doing lots of new and exciting things for the page and for my blog,after doing the video review and getting lots of nice comments form every one I think I will be doing lots more.Even thought Im sorta blushing at the thought of it.

I was asked if any one wanted to see how I do my make up and there seems to be an interest in this,so watch out for that space,The other topics on the page are Wigs.
I love my wigs,And Asked my likers on the page what wig I should go for I have narrowed it down to 2 wigs one from GLW and one From the Lock Shop but then this morning I found out that Lock shop have new wigs coming in...DRAMA!
Okay That is no not fair I was so close to getting a new wig  with a well long thought out choice and picked one for you to do this to me!!

;__;
*cries a little*

Know I have to wait thanks to you Lock shop just so I can see your newest wigs to then be back at square one again over picking one!
*grr*
¬.¬'
Love the lock shop!

So I think I will do something fun on my Facebook page with the wigs and I have some reviews to coming up and cute findings to show you all.



so stay supa Kawaii 
Tartan.
