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 !

Colourful and Kawaii!


Hey every cutie.

This week I got a new purse in the post , I found this little cute online store called 'Very Kawaii.'

It has a small selection of kawaii goods, But one item caught my eye. See ,I normally use my Lounge fly x Hello Kitty wallet but cause its made with very tough material and is so new ( I got it at Christmas.) I find it a bit annoying to use and I end up looking so silly trying to open up this purse, trying not to spill out all my money every where.

So I had made a point to get myself a nice stress free wallet. Because having a 3 year old tugging at my coat because she wants a kinder egg, when I am paying for my shopping is stressful enough now she has so much more freedom being off the walking toddler rains. So finding this little kawaii gem was very handy. 

I saw this cute wallet and fell in love with it , It's about the same size as my Hello Kitty one but I have to say it was the colours that attracted me to the item. Its got some cute buttons on it and is made up of cute colours,even inside it has bright cute colours. It has got a place for your cards, A place to add any kawaii photos you like to carry around and then it has the part for coins's that has a zip to keep them safe. As well as other parts to keep notes and even bits of paper which happen to have a list of the thing's I need to buy or remember- huhuh.

It has a popper button to fasten it together and its very light weight.The material is very  soft and has a nice glossy look to it too.It cost me £9.99 plus the postage. It didn't take long to get here either. I came in the post very fast. That might be due to the fact this online shop is in the UK.

At the moment there is not much in the online store but I do hope they will be able to bring in some very cute items that are different to your normal kawaii retailer. With this purse being a great example. As I have not found anything as cute as this in other shops and I happen to be quite active in looking for great Kawaii buys! 

So they are worth checking out!
Online shop link found here!

The other thing I have bought that is super colourful and cute are these hair bands/ hair bobbles, they are from a ebay seller/shop called Gobboline. Who sell a huge range of Kawaii/ Harajuku clothing, accessories among other things . I bought from them in the past. This time I bought these cute hair bobbles to use as Pom pom bracelets for some photos for a outfit. Am not sure if these are the real fairy kei style but I might have sweet heart in Japan who can find the ones you find in Japan. Till then these ones will be useful for other things.

The other thing I bought a the start of the year was a custom piece of jewellery made by the lovely Roxiesweet Heart! I came up with a idea  ,that I was inspired from a other necklace but I wanted it too look even more kawaii and colourful! More funky looking and super fun and cute. I wanted it to look bold and be a statement piece too. Roxiesweet Heart was up for the challenge and with her magic made a magical piece of Kawaii for me! I only got it in the post and its just soo cool. I love the colours and the magical acrylic that has been used its mirror like effect but its also see-through and shimmers in different shades! Its also got the cutest looking font and text with a chunky cute chain. Oh and the extra added gems added to the piece!Am super happy with it - I do like my statement pieces heehee!

Well that's my current Colourful and Kawaii update for you all! Hope you have been inspired to bring more colour into your life too!

Stay Kawaii!

Keep it Secret's *NEW* Kawaii Range!


Hello every Cutie!
Today I will be a sponsored review for keep-it-secret. Your UK retailer of Kawaii goodies. This is a very exciting review because these are BRAND NEW IN!
Coming soon!!
So with out further a due, I give you the most Kawaii, pop culture clothing line, that is only available at Keep it Secret in the UK.
JUIZYWOOZY!
I have been in love with this brand as soon as I lay my eyes on it! I have wanted some of their stuff so long! Its a colourful vibrate and the most kawaii designs. huhuh I fell in love- so much Kawaii.
So I got my parcel in the post and am going to show you what I got ! eee!

Item Arrival
This is the item boxed- how cute it this?! Its shaped and designed as a milk carton and is so colourful and cute.There is even a window part to see your item- nyaa cute. I love the designs and images the milk carton.
The product I got to review was inside, Its a Jumper and when I took it out the first thing I noticed how soft it was- like super soft.

The Item
Once laid out  you can see the jumper is long sleeved  has a image on it. The image is very clear and very big. Great for a statement piece.The colour is a lovely sky blue, I was super happy to get a colour I don't own or wear much as I saw this as a great chance to experiment with making up a outfit.
 I really had a hard time at 1stas I had nothing to go with the blue ...but because there is few pink details in the jumper. I teamed it up with other pinks to make a nice overall look. The Slogan on the top says '' Feeling blue.'' and the picture is a super cute bear  wearing a pink and white bow tie,whom seems to have used the paint bucket to paint lots of blue . Under the slogan it has some Kanji and  the juizy woozy signature. It also has a printed juizy woozy on the back at the base of the neck. You will find this item is also a round neck line shape. nyaa its just so cute!



Size
This line of product have their own sizing system. They are numbers 1-4 and a 1 works out as a extra small or a uk 6 , The  2 works out as small and a uk 8, The  3 a medium and a uk 10, and  finally the 4 works out as a large and is a uk 12.
I got a 2 size which is a uk 8. Am a size 10-12 UK size ( I love baggy jumpers!) and I found this jumper to be a nice size on me and it has some room so you can layer up in the colder weather! So am very happy with the size and  it is made of very soft 100% combed cotton.

Product quality 
The image is printed on to the jumper, I checked the inside to see if print was sticky on the inside. I find some times jumpers or tops often have that and it is annoying but its not the case hear- yay!
The Jumper is not the thickest jumper I own , but its not paper thin either which means you just layer up on colder weather and you can wear this jumper with out melting either. haha! All the stitching is neat and tidy. I found no lose threads .So am super happy with the quality of this jumper 

Over all thoughts
Over all, I love my jumper, is is super comfortable on and so colourful, The box is came in is so cute and the character on the jumper is so sweet and adorable If you love the fashion and pop - culture this is your sort of thing. I would recommend these to a friend who also likes this kind of style and will be looking forward to more item that will be coming into stock! I have seen some sneaky insights at Keep it Secrets Instagram and fallen in love with some of the other items.

Rate out of 5 star's..its gona be 5! I love it so much and its super cute and colourful! I cant wait to show it off - heehee.

I hope you all enjoyed my in-depth review of the new kawaii clothing range that is coming out at Keep it Secret. I hope all my cute readers will be wanting a statement piece of their own!

So till then, stay Kawaii! Tartan <3
