A Yume Kanzanshi review.- Hair accessiores


Hello every cutie! I hope you are all well and happy- happy Kawaii! 
 Today I have a sponsored review from a very elegant company called Yume Kanzanshi. But I think I shall explain a little more on what a Kanzashi is. A Kanzashi is a traditional hair ornament or to me and you a hair accessory used in traditional Japanese hairstyles and was once thought to ward off evil spirits ~eek! .  These hair accessories are worn by (not limited to) geisha and maiko in Japan.They are very pretty and beautiful pieces and  if like me you are enchanted by the traditional side of Japan and the beautiful charming geisha.
Am sure you will very much like my review with a hint of Kawaii! Important links you will need are these Facebooktumblr and the link to the Yume Kanzashi Shop.


I got a lovely parcel in the post from Yume Kanzanshi whom is a friend of mine. She has a deep passion for all things from Japan and puts it all into her work of her items she sells.
You can find the most elegant looking pieces fit for a bride to be to a princess and each item is handmade. Or  why not take a look at the colourful Kawaii range of hair accessories.


Here is the item, oh my gosh is soo pretty! This photo makes it look small but its a fair size when you see it in your hair. It is made of a Sky Blue fabric and has coloured sports all over it on the print as well as my most favourite things to eat Macarons!
In the centre of the main flower, at the top is a cute pearl with a elegant attachment  to the fabric with give it a lovely touch. The Back of this Kanzanshi is 2 fittings, One being a alligator grip and the other like a pin , seen in the photo.


This piece at the back is firmly secured on to the accessory . The great thing about having two attachments to the accessory is how versatile it can become.  Below are my photos of it on a medium length wig  and the other on one of my blazer style jacket. You really could use this in many different ways .



I already have plans with outfits to wear this with so if you are interested in seeing my outfit ideas and my other photos you can find me on instagram! Instagram link
I hope you like my review, I suggest you check out Yuma Kanzashi and her up coming designs that she is working on and has planned, one other item in the shop are these pretty necklaces all handmade.




Till next time!

New Wig Set


Hey Cuties!
Today my wig order came in, its not much of a order but am super happy cause its come right in time for the maid cafe am helping out at on saturday! I was worried my blonde in pink wig was gona tie me down with weight of the clip ins. 
which would annoy me and there is way to much hair I think it would just not work...So when Lockshop announced the new set in stock I was happy to see it was a short bob style wig with 2 clip ins. That you can add to the bob style and make it look extra kawaii!

They come in a range of colours I loved the Honey one but I knew I already had a base bob from the Candy Curl set in Pink Cherry so instead of buying a whole set I got the clip in's only and took a leap of faith that they would match in shade. 

All the colours are very nice and pretty  and you could mix and match the clip ins with the same base shade with the other wigs from the Lockshop.
So lets take a look at the photos!


All wrapped up pretty!



My new Clip in's in the shade Cherry Pink I adore that shade!
Wonder, who that fuzzy creature is to the side?! A clue to my next blog post maybe?!



Yup I got the ring too, I had been looking at it for some time and since I had the funds for it, I went ahead and ordered it too . I do not have many statement rings.

Again I used the cheaper method of shipping and I've not had any issues with shipping with this company at all - All my wigs but 2 have come form the lockshop. 


So this is the base wig  from Candy curls and these are the clip in's that are the same shade, As you can see they match. (Yay!) Again ive had the Candy curls set since they came out and compared to a brand new item from the lockshop the base wig is still as soft and silky as the clip in's. Which means I must be looking after my wigs well and the lockshop wigs are great products. 



Worn right out of the bag, You can keep them in the shape they are in. Or you can brush them out and or back comb them. I will be keeping mine in shape for the maid cafe. I might give them a back comb for my other J-Fashion styles.



The ring is adorable , its a free size so it fits every one by adjusting the back.
Sound out the letters and the symbol and its says Cutie-pie. You cant see from this picture but the ring has some glitter on the lilac colour.
Nyaaa!!




I am not wearing much make up today as during the week, I do not always have time hehe. I love my cute red lip tints though! They are great for Casual days and quickness!
Am super happy with my new clip in's, I can not wait to wear them as Maid Tartan and also what creative ideas I can come up with them.
I might think about the Honey set, but then I will have to wait till after Christmas as I've asked Santa for a Lockshop wig, hehe.

Have you tried Lockshop yet?  What wigs do you like?

All these items are perfect for the styles of J-Fashion I have mentioned already. The colours are all pastel shades and very cute items such as bows, starts unicorns, and hearts.

Hats,am addicted to Hats!


Hello every one, How are you all today?
I hope you are all keeping super Kawaii and have you noticed the darker nights! I do like this time of year cause I like to wrap up snug and cosy. However I so miss the sunshine, its been so gloomy and dark for the past month. Bleh! 


So for a while I have had a thing for Hair accessories and such when using my wigs but I have such short hair I cant really use them on my real hair.  But  then I got a thing for beanie hats and berets which I could use and its know developed into trucker snap back hats. 

Hehe any its all thanks to River Island and its sale that I know have 4 cute looking and very street like J-Fashion snap back hats. If you are following me on Facebook you will have seen lots of photos!
I am so glad they are snap back hats as I have a small head .  So they can be made smaller but also when I wear my wigs I need to change the size again to make the hat bigger to fit with the wig. So I tend to stick to the Hats that adjust with ease!

So here is a few snaps of my newest Hats sorry they are mainly instagram snaps!


A Sparkle crystals New York in Pink.

Pink and studs with leopard print hat.
a other Leopard print and black hat.

And my zebra style one hehe.
Yea...not sure why but completely addicted to hats hehe. You can find all these Hats at River Island and lots of other styles too. I really like the ones with the sparkles! I can be such a girly girl when
 I want to be...
