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!

Lock Shop Wig Review

Hey every one here is a new review post for you all on not one but 2 Lock shop wigs I have ordered in the past month or so!
I ordered a long wig and a short wig which are called Gemmi (short wig.) and Mermaid (long wig.)


The Mermaid wig is the Blossom one, its a soft brown colour that fades into the range of pinks that hide under and are seen near the ends of hair sections with a Ombre effect.
I really liked this wig when it came out and after a few months of saving I went ahead to purchase this one, I did sway on buying this one as I am not overly keen on brown shades.Any how I went ahead and bought it, I think this might be one of my favourite wigs as I loved the brown colour haha! As normal its easy to use the website and find updates on the Lock shop pages on facebook. I have had no problems when ordering from the web site even when I was moving house.


My Wig was packed well and secure. I have noticed that you do not always get a complementary Wig Cap as they often run out of these really quickly! So you may wish to order a few off ebay to have handy. I also find they are easy things to go missing. 
Any way here are some photos - I've not altered the wig in any way I may trim the bangs/Fringe of the Blossom wig.




I adore this wig - It can make any outfit more colourful, I feel its a youthful fun wig but its not over the top in anyway.I would love it to have a bit more body and ''Waves'' in the style since they have revamped the mermaid style but I do not regret getting this great wig.!

The other wig the Gemini Wig a much shorter and different style to any wig in the Lockshop so far, This is a more interesting wig, With 2 shades one darker than the other and has a ''puffy top''  and a visible crown on the scalp .I got this before my camera was fixed so there is no parcel photos but it was packed just the same way the other one was.


This is a more Visual Kei inspired wig, I simply bought it because there is a lack of short wigs from the Lock shop and the darker shade would work well with my natural tones. I also got a sense of Rock n Roll from looking at it. 

This wig will look very flat and odd if you are not used to this style. I didnt like it looking so flat maybe because I have a small head?! So I found with a bit of creative back combing ( thanks to my hairdressing days.) made the wig look a lot more fuller and bed head style.
I love the contrast of the wig colours and the fact it is a shorter wig.





I feel that with this wig it maybe a harder wig to dress with and work with a cord as such, its very emo/punk and extremely Visual Kei. So Perfect for all of you guys how love that look, To me I think this is a wig for my more rock chic look days. This wig also differs from the other wigs as the feel of this wig is much more matt compared to the other wigs, which made it easy to back comb this wig into a style.
I really am in hope for more shorter wigs in many styles from the Lockshop, I think the Visual Kei/ Gemini would look great in a variety of shades also.
Am just gona have to keep my fingers crossed!

Hope you like my Review!

Cherry Blossoms and Pastels


Hello Kawaii lovers, how are you all- yes I know not been posting as much as I would like -I have been rather busy and for a change not due to extra blogging but trips out and about.
The weekend was so pretty and warm-ish. Which was nice weather for taking a walk and snapping some kawaii photos of my favourite type of trees, the 'Sakura' cherry blossom tree.
So I grabbed my camera and headed out, I also wore my newest (non-lolita) dress.
Yay!
