Valentines~ Cute Japanese fashion review!

Hey guys, Welcome to my sponsored review from Cute Japanese Fashion!
I have been reviewing a fair it but I am working on other projects and such but am keeping my cards close before I start to share what I am up too!
So I got the luxury of picking 2 items from Cute Japanese Fashion to review for you this month! And since its February and all lovely dovey and that I picked an item which was really cute and also fitting for this month!


Again before I start the review , these are my honest thoughts on the items and how I feel about the products.While I am saying this I also have been a customer in the past with this company a fair few times so I can easily say that the website is easy to use and ordering is simple and quick. The shipping I have found comes within 3 days from ordering and I have never had any issues with the shipping or postal sevice here. Also the owner is a sweetie, So big thumbs up!



So with that all out the way lets check out my thoughts on the items! So the 1st item. Right as I said I picked a valentines themed item and I also picked an item which was a bit daring for me,a bottom half item.I tend not to buy those sort of items unless am gona try em on in the shop but thanks to my new body shape and size I dared myself to be brave and go for a pair of dungarees shorts as I really like dungaree style clothing. 


So here is the stock image. The product came and its really cute, I like the fact its a lower rise style on the top that way you can see cute tops under it. It has a small pocket at the front too. Its pretty soft material and did I say already its cute? When I got it I had to assemble the straps.haha...yea that took me 20mins of guess work! That is the only thing that was a bit annoying about this and yes I had to pull put a old pair of my own dungarees to see how to set it up, I might still have it wrong though haha! 



At the price of around £13 this is a really cute item, that can be super kawaii for both spring and summer. It also fits pretty snug on so the sizes on this run on the small side and as you most likely guessed the straps can be adjusted too. So it can be worn lose like the stock photo or as how you like it. The other item is my Valentines themed item which I will be featuring in my new video over at youtube for you all to check out later next week. I picked this cute creamy shade cardigan , I loved the print on this which is what really attracted me to it in the first place . Check out the stock image here, it is adorable.

 

The item is just as the stock image and the hearts are all placed and spaced out well, I really don't like it when a pattern overlaps or looks odd when it hits the buttons or the edge of a top lol. This is a very soft to touch item and rather thick, Its cute enough but not over the top, Its not white but a nice creamy shade. Its something you can with ease dress up and make your own style or why not make it super kawaii!!! Not bad for its price of around £13 . It fits really well and really nice to wear.


Again I tend to pick more ''mature'' or more Asian like every day items from this store . As I have found these to be the best ones that can fit any style and are more versatile. Which is why I like both these and the past products.  That way I can have dress up days and dress down days in cute clothing all the time. Which are great for adding to your kawaii wardrobe.  Over all am very happy with these items.

Till later Tartan xox

Kawaii DIY Valentines Ideas Felt Hearts


Hello Cuties - again here is my last post for the run up for Valentines day! 
I will be doing all my backing and chocolate making on the Thursday so its all freshly made for the 14th to give to my Valentines. I wonder if I will get many cards ( Heehee!!) Yea right! I will  Lucky to even get a card! (n_n)But this post again like the last one can be altered to what you want to use it for!
Today let's make Hanging felt hearts!
(sorry for the crappy Phone photos I cant load up any Camera ones at this time.)
Yay..What you will need is the following.
Sheets of Red felt
A heart template or shape to use as a guide
A pencil to trace the shape on the felt.
A needle
Thread
Scissors.

To start with you should get your heart shaper template and trace around it on the red felts. You do not need to use heart as you can pick any shape you want but cause is near Valentines day I picked hearts. Also they are very cute too. You can pick any colour of felts for your hearts as well so don't let what I have picked limit you in any way. Once you have traced out your shapes you will need the scissors for cutting them out.

Once you have cut them all out I made about 12 single hearts and paired them up to make them double sided, *DON'T throw away any scrap felt!* I paired up the hearts with the pencil showing on the outside and then took my thread and needle and started to do a simple stitch around them but not completely sewing them up, as I then turned them inside out.
Using the left over felts I used that to stuff the insides of my hearts making them into tiny plushie hearts. Make sure you cut up the extra felts into smaller pieces so they fit into the hearts hehe. Then finish sewing up the cute little heart. (^.~) Kawaii!

Do this with your paired up hearts and you should then have 6 plushie cute hearts. Know with the thread you will want to cut a long piece for string them all together as well. So make sure you have plenty thread.Starting with the first heart string it from the top of the heart in the middle and then thread on the second one from the bottom and the top. That way it will swing about less when hung. And then do the same with the rest till you get to the last one. Once at the top make sure to loop your thread and then its ready for hanging up!

Like I already said you don't have to stick with my guidelines of shape and colour. Why not make some stars or Clouds or what about rainbow coloured felts. Also you could add any sort of extra decorations for extra Kawaii fun!

I cant wait to see every one making Kawaii valentines ideas!
Feel free to send me pictures of your Kawaii Valentines DIY's I bet they are super cute.

Till next time!
<3 Stay cute.
