Cute Japanese Fashion Winter Review


Hey everyone today's post is a sponsored review by Japanese Cute Fashion.
Here is the link for all your cute Japanese fashion needs here you can also find them on facebook too.
Kyaa~ any one notice the change in the air we are already half way through November and its the season to keep cosy cute and warm.
Is it cold where you are? It has been wet and slightly mild here but to be offered to select some items to review I had to pick some cosy looking knitwear , one of my top kawaii tips for winter for staying Kawaii and Warm.

I picked 2 items from the knitwear section from the shop which has many other sections to browse. I chose a jumper and a cardigan both new items in store. The 1st item is a fuffly style cardigan, I am a creature of habit and still love black but try not to buy it cause it can be kawaii too. What I liked about this , is that it looks so warm and cosy! I also liked the cute skulls and cross bone details. This eyelash style wool seems to be rather popular in the high street shops.



The 2nd item is a jumper in a white shade that I picked. I loved this for its Kawaii sweet over all look again with a similar looking eyelash wool this one is covered in lipstick lips all over it - which is so cute!
And very fitting cause I love my lipsticks.
 
My Parcel was all wrapped up well and neatly for the post!
I had to collect it as the postie came when I was out on the school run, Thanks to that it meant I had to wait  from Tuesday which was the day it came. Till the following day to collect it! Item was shipped the Monday!

What I think of the items~
 The cardigan I love it! It fits well (8-12 UK size) I wore it for photos and it kept me soo warm I had to take it off for a bit! The only snag is there is no way to close it, so its a open style cardigan .The colours are the same as the stock photos and the skulls are way to cute!You could create many cute pastel gothic looks with this item as well as soft grunge looks.  There was no lose eyelash fibres either and none that I could see come off on my top underneath it when I took it off. I really like this cardi lots and it comes in a nice price on the website. I rate this this a 9/10 it would of got full marks if it had buttons or a zipper but that's a personal thing ( just being a fussy lol)






The other item was the Lippy Jumper as I call it lol! Again its the same as the stock image, it said it was a size UK 6-10, It did look small but I would say the sizes are spot on. Like the Cardi the martial is stretchy-ish. Is that a word?! I LOVE this Jumper its mega cute and sassy. The lip sticks marks are so cute haha. I also like how the base colour is pink and the fluffy eyelash wool is white giving it a nice cream colour.
I rate this one FULL marks 10/10! Would I recommend this online store? YES!
 This order has been great and stylish for winter cosy items

Here are my worn photos!







Hope enjoyed my review!

Lime Crime-Kawaii make up review

Ah finally, getting round to a new review blog post yay!

So this posts review is about my latest purchase of products by Lime Crime. A product that is made in the USA and known for its bright colourful shades and tones. I have come across Lime Crime in the past and always liked the look of the brightly  products but never really got around to purchasing them -manly because I didn't know if I could in the UK or not. However in the end I did realise I could get the products on ebay and a few UK online make up shops or just ordering from Lime Crime in the USA its self. So far I have tried all these methods and not had any issues with shipping or such. So I know if I can not get it on one of these ways I can with a other.- great stuff.
So what did I get?!
The 1st product I ordered was one of the Velvetines, I picked the pink one as the red one was out of stock everywhere or I had to play way over the odds for one! But I like pink and wanted to try it- I heard a lot about this product about how amazing it is and how bright and colourful the shades are.
I also heard and read many reviews on how long lasting the product were when on the lips which really took my interest. Also the Velvetines are a Gloss product that dry into a matt once on.
I was super over the moon when I item came and I fell in love with the product packaging and the product itself. I knew from that point I had to get myself some more of the Velvetines. I now have the following , Pink Velvet, Utopia and Red Velvet. And I love them all.

Why do I like these? I love the long lasting colour, I barely have to touch up my lip make up as its like the stuff is bullet proof , Kiss proof and compared to other bright colours there was barely a trace of any left lip mark on my mugs of tea or on toast! I love the colours and the fact its a matt finish. I also noted they had a nice scent to them as well.I did find it was hard to get them perfectly lined with the brush that they come with so I use a lip brush to outline my lips when I use these. I am not personally keen on shiny gloss looks on my lips so these are perfect for me!Moving on to the other products I ordered 3 Unicorn lipsticks in the end, I really wanted to try them to see how they matched up to the Velventines.





 The colours I ordered were, Airborne unicorn which is a purple - Lavender shade. Centrifuschia  which is a fushica like pink shade. The other one being Pink Planet which is more of a baby pink pastel shade.Pinks and reds are more my sort of colours but I found the ones I have got in the past have not being bold in colours even in a pastel shade so I wanted to test these out to see if I get the shades I wanted on my lips.The 1st time I tried them I fell in love with Centrifuschia I love the colour and it applied well, don't need to much colour might I add to get this shade in its full glory.As for the others well its a bit of a love hate feeling with Airborne unicorn, I personally love the look of it but am not sure if I really suit it, I feel its a bit weird in tone on my lips I did find if I apply it very lightly I get a better tone but its a hard one to use, -just my thoughts there or I am not applying it right! haha! Again seems to be the same with the pink planet all the pastel shades maybe? But again applying them lightly seems to work well .All of the lipsticks are all scented in a lovely vanilla smell. Over all I do like these but have to really apply with care and thought. 


The last item I got was a eye liner in reason a slivery glittery shade its a lovely eyeliner and glides on with ease when used. Its not very noticeable but then I have not really used it for a over all look yet. I would love to try 2 other shades one being blue milk and a purple shade one. I will be trying out the new Venus Palette full of really nice shades of eye-shadows that took my interest- I hunted high and low for other brands offering same kinds of shades but nothing has turned up close so I went ahead to treat myself to this so am rather excited.

Over all what do I think of the products? I think you get a lovely kawaii looking product that gives lovely shades and a variety of bright bold and pastel shades, they might not be for every one. I guess I might buy some other shades in the Velventines as they are my fave so far. I do find they are quite pricey but not as crazy as high end priced brands. I would like to see new shades and variety. I would recommend the Velventines over the lipsticks personally. I do however love my purchased products so far! 


What do you think of these products- should I do a video review on these? Do any of you want to see these on me then check out my Instagram here !!

Hyper Japan 2014

Hyper Japan! The UK's biggest Japanese culture convention. Held often twice a year in London.
This year was my 1st time at Hyper Japan. Something I saved up for and put aside my time just to go. I am going to spilt up my post in two, Day one and Day two. Because there is so much to show and tell. I went both Friday and Saturday. (Blog post is image heavy )

Day One:t ( A run through of what to find and discover at Hyper Japan.)
 Wow , even over a hour or so before the event there was a queue, the sun was belting down on all those in the queue and it was so hot! Any way once the doors were open it did not take long for the room to fill up, in no time there was people everywhere. The first thing you are greeted by is the huge character Chopper , signs for each area hanging from the ceiling and a sea of vendors. One main stage at the right rear and 2 smaller stages. Each one full of performers, music, fashion and even someKawaii robots. To be really honest I did not know where to start so as there was so much to take in.

There was a huge Games area from Arcade games to trying out, the WiiU and the 3DS. Am pretty old school with my consoles- lol- So I gave my best at having a go of the newer consoles and failed miserably. It was pretty fun, there was a lot of hard core gamers and so much going on in this one small area of the event. If you went walking about that area you had the chance to meet and greet Mario, Luigi , Pac-man and Pikachu Mascots, I missed Pikachu...I was so gutted but never mind! Please excuse my bad photo of me with Mario and Luigi, Hubby took it and my face is hidden in shadow! - eeep-







Game's were not the only high technology at the event! There was a on screen Domo Kun ( a Japanese TV mascot for the Channel NHK,) that you could get your photo taken with and a small section of the most adorable looking robots ever to. Adding to the musical element was Hyper Vocaloid.

Clouds and Hearts- Branded Kitty shop review*!

Hello every cutie how are you all today?
Today I am reviewing 2 super cute items for you. From the shop *Branded Kitty*. A online Asian fashion site. Its full of super kawaii items and I can not wait to show you the items I have got to review.
I found this show via instagram and then Facebook. So here are all the links that you need...

Branded Kitty have a lot to pick from and there is many cute pieces that you can help but fall in love with.
The offer you world wide shipping at a flat rate of $15 USD that's just under £9 for us in the uk. And your order is shipped in one parcel so no need to wait on separate parcels in the post. 

The website is clear,pretty to look at and easy to navigate. The photos of stock are also very clear and there is a range of clothing, accessories and circle lens. There is a lot of things to look at and check out. I got my order and it took about 2 weeks to get to the UK. My order came in one parcel and  this is how my items arrived  both wrapped in clear plastic bags of their own.
Stock image
When you order ,remember to check your size'z in cm instead of inches. Most items are only in one size or free size. I picked 2 items one being the top seen in the above image.

The top came as it as it is seen in the stock photo , I really liked the street style feel that this top has with the stripes on the sleeves and it looked very casual. I don't own much white, only a few tops.
What really attracted me to this was the hearts on the top . Way Kawaii!!  The other thing that I love about this top is that is very soft to touch . Nothing beats a soft cute top to make up outfits with.
Stock image
The other item I picked was this super doper cute skirt! I picked this skirt as I was looking for a nice pale denim coloured style. When I saw this in the order I was so happy it looked just as cute as the stock image on the web site. Mind you the skirt was crushed  - so it needs a iron. Teehee!



 I was delighted to see the print was a cute print of clouds! Nyaa it's way cute.
 Again this was a once size item and was in cms. I was a tad worried that it might not fit me - Thanks to my child baring hips of mine , oh the joys of mother nature. Huhuh  But I was very happy to find that it is half elastic at the back and would stretch for me to squeeze it over the hips.

Its so so cute , I really can not get over how Kawaii it is.  Its quite light shade of Sky Blue and the print is adorable the skirt seems hard wearing and quirky for all styles, the only dislike I have about the skirt is its a bit on the short side, but that is a personal thing  and I can easily adapt the skirt with other items to make it suit my style.




Over all thoughts. I love both of my items, the top is cute simple and casual and the skirt is quirky Kawaii and sweet. They are both look good and match the stock images, they look hard wearing and I think the price's are well matched to the items.
I would like to see more of a personal touch from the seller ,such as some business cards or flyers from the store, Or maybe even dress up in presentation of the order. Apart form those minor little suggestions I am very happy with my order and the items, I have received from  Branded Kitty Shop!I hope you all like the review and do check the shop out and if you really like some thing you can use this discount too, A very Kawaii ,Tartan Kawaii discount code for you!

Cherry Blossoms and Treasure hunting


Hey there every cutie, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I had a very eventful one, myself. It also was a lot of fun too. I went Cherry Blossom hunting and later went Treasure hunting or Geo- Cacheing with my friends.


I got lots of lovely photos to share with you. I hope that you like them. I returned to the Japanese Kyoto Gardens near by and got to see so many cute Cherry Blossoms in bloom.




 
I really liked getting such pretty images and seeing all the trees looking much more full that my last visit! 
Its such a enchanting place. You could easily forget that the City is near by.








I also went out geo-cacheing for the 2nd time, but now I am signed up and have an account to log my finds when out looking. I went to a neighbouring sea village and got 12 cache's on my trip and came across many pretty images I had to snap away. Its not the most Kawaii hobby but it was fun doing something as a team with my friends. I wanted to share the images I got from my trip.





I hope you like my photos, I took I really like the Abandoned Sofa image on the beach.
I can not wait for the day where all my images relate to Kawaii or Japan. huhuh!
