Kawaii Squishable Review


Hey every one!
How are you all? today's post is a other review with a video which is found here on my Channel!!
 This review is so awesome! I got a parcel from the delivery man today and he came to the door with this HUGE box! 
You can imagen how excited I was! My item for a sponsored review came, Yay!



My item for reviewing comes from the online store Squishables! Squishables is the home of over sized fuzzy animal soft toys and they have a huge collection from small ones to large ones. It is super hard to even pick out of the ones they have in stock on the web site. After much debate between a Kitten or a Unicorn . I gave up and asked my facebook friends, even then I turned to my faithful Kawaii little girl 'chibi bean'  and took her advise and picked the unicorn. Yep she has great taste!


So my item came safe and sound , the item was wrapped in a plastic bag and surrounded by brown paper to cushion it in the box. Along with its little receipt inside the box too.
 Personally and this is just a personal thing but I LOVE it when companies add some cute  flyers , business cards or  have a cute presentation , Maybe something like a cute packaging like what Build a bear do with thier carry boxes . I know many folks see this as extra 'junk' but to me it makes it more business like and personal , Again that's what I like to see when I buy something cause its nice to feel that bit extra has gone into ordering from that shop.


That aside, the item.  OH MY KAWAII!! This is the most adorable thing! I love it. I am super pleased with this unicorn. A chubby, plump ,Cute unicorn. The Unicorn is shaped in a round ball style and he is pure white body and head wise with a white tummy . Blue tail and matching mane, A yellow horn and brown cute hooves. No detail has been skipped on the unicorn looking like a unicorn.


He has a dopey smile on his face and is so fluffy its crazy soft! I have a feeling there shall be a battle between myself and my daughter over who gets to keep him  in what room - haha. I knew he was going to be one of the bigger items but I really had not prepered myself and to have him (Yes I have given him a gender.) in my hands and realise how big he is.



He is one from the 15"  size collection  and he is made from polyester fibre. He is retailed at £34.99 and I would say he is worth every penny, due to his size and quailty. As a mother I did check him over for any loose threads, or parts and nothing seemed to be lose or anything as he is pretty well made.However please do remove all swing tags before giving these items to a child and it recommends that these are for the ages of 3+ ( up to 200yrs old and down again.) I freely admit I am a big kid at heart and love all things cute and am so pleased with this item , I would for sure recommend these to others to buy and buy for Children.

I  also love the connection they have with the customers on Facebook (links found at the end of the post.) and the website to Vote for your favourite designs that they are working on! I think that is really cool and it helps build a good relationship with the customers. I would love to see more Kawaii styles being made.

I really do love my new squishable buddy - the name of the company is very fitting as you really do want to squish them and hug em so much with them being super super soft.
So here are some more photos for you to enjoy and the Links to everything you will need to own your very own squishable! Kawaii!!







Till next time Keep it cute!

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.

Adding to the San-X to the family

Hey Cuties . I hope every one having a nice weekend! Wow I can not get over that its December. Yep am getting way to excited maybe because I know my own Christmas gifts from the hubby have been ordered!!
Also am really wanting to get the tree up but I have to wait as there is a few cables in the house that we need to ''hide'' and secure down with techi stuffs in the house lol! Once that is done am sure I can get started on the decorations and I have also almost completed the Christmas shopping , *YAY!!* Just have to finish one off! Have you started or finished your Christmas shopping yet? 
So today post is one about my obsession for Plushies, Fufflies and Soft toys. Am such a child at heart. Of late, I stopped buying Hello Kitty stuff from September- a big thing for me. Okay... I have bought Hello Kitty stuff BUT! not for me its to do with the Hello Kitty Group on Facebook me and my Kitty Junkies set up. Here is the newest cute characters I have bought!
I already had a Rilakkuma plush, but he was so lonely I took a while to find the right size of his friend Korilakkuma, Don't they look adorable together?!


Oh and I also found their other friend...Kiiroitori!!


Are these not the cutest ever!!
Here is more Kawaii Cute photos of them all together . Hehe.




I am going to be next year doing up the spare room to become a Kawaii Rilakkuma themed room for me to escape too! And it will be a guest room too thought I think after this post I might have a few more folk wishing to stay if there will be lots of Rilakkuma cute-ness to welcome them at my house hehe!!
I hope every one is ready for the Blog's Update look next week!
till then...

Fluffy nail art...Kawaii

Hey there you cutie's.
I hope you all had a great weekend, I had such a busy one that am so tired, I need to catch up on some 'ZZzz'z' but I sure did have some fun. Today I wanted to find this cool and fun
 nail art effect, there is a lot on the market and in high strret brands in the shops but I saw this and was like ''Kyaa its so Kawaii!''
I used my BarryM nail polish for my night out at the weekend so I still had it on when I got this magical little tub of Fur-effect nails by MUA which was about £3-5 ( cant mind of the top of my head the price- as I got 2, and 2 new polish's.)


It comes in a little tub .


You can add it to your nails,as it says on the back with the shaker seen here in the above photo.


Or you can take the shaker part off and paint your nails and ''sprinkle'' the fluffy fur on it.


I found that I had to really pack it on my freshly painted wet nails to fully cover the nail and by placing a sheet of paper under my hands. I could catch the fur that escaped as it was a bit messy with fur every where!!

I have BarryM Dragon Fruit shade on underneath.



As you can see at first they are super furry but they lost their puff as I didnt push the fur into the wet polish to well, But I since washed my hands many a time, run a bath, dishes and lots of cleaning and the fur is still on! Not only that but its still super soft to touch too.

So am really impressed, I got this hot pink fur in colour and a cotton candy one too!
I cant wait to try that one out too!
Hope you like my fur-tastic find for new nail art fun!
Till next time!

''Everything is cooler with Hello Kitty.''Its really cute and sweet looking, all the items seem to be see- through and clear, the images are Hello kitty with her Penguin friend who also wears a bow like Hello Kitty too.
Kawaii!
I wonder when and if these will come over the the UK?



How cute are these Hello Kitty's in Plush and cushion styles, And her little kawaii Penguin friend too!
N'awww Kawaii.


There seems to be a range of cute see through bags too.
The other range I spied on the US Sanrio Website was the Strawberry range which looks very summery and mature looking.
I really love the plush, but its the plushies that I collect so, yea hehe.



Do these strawberry cuties look adorable?! They also look ever so fuzzy and soft. I love the cute-ness and strawberry theme. There is also slippers and other accessories that can be found the the range too.
So sweet.


Those slippers look comfortable and soft. I bet that Cushion would look great on my own bed, hehe!
