Hello Kitty Big Face and neon range!

Hello Kawaii Lovers, How are you all doing today?!
I have noticed I have some new kawaii Followers! *Waves Hello* Thanks for following me it means the world to me and my little blog (>.<'')
Today I want to share some stylish and very cute Hello Kitty Face range of bags from Sanrio!
I adore these cute yet simple bags and they come in a range and style from your small bags to your shoulder bags!


The drawstring bag is so cute and causal.


The backpack is so stylish and the red bow really stands out on the black!




The Style is very easy on the eye, not at all babyish looking.
Very mature I find the Black colours when it comes to Hello Kitty looks very mature and elegant!
The other goodies I spied on Sanrio's web site are the neon Kitty Range,There is not to much in the range more pens and markers and the Plushie who I think looks very sweet too!



These look like so much fun to doodle with.
I wonder if any of these products will be finding their way over to the UK any time soon?
Which items do you like?
Im really liking those handbags... But I have already got a Lush bag ...may have one on order but that is for a other post for you all to wait for! 
So till next time!

Hello Kitty Searching


Hello you Kawaii Lover's .
Do you remember the post I did a while back about the Hello Kitty's Plushes that I found overseas and was so gutted that they were not in the UK at all..(T^T) So sad right!? I wanted them so bad I asked Friends of mine in Japan and even my ''contacts'' to search for them...but it seemed it was Sanrio was wanting to keep them from me...
(see the old post here!)
My ninja Hello Kitty skills failed me.


OR SO I THOUGHT!

Hello Kitty Earrings Review

Hello you Kawaii Lover's! How are you all today? I been so bad and not posted this review up yet! Wah! Can you please forgive me?

Well you will once you see my Review form House of Wonderland! They are a online store found here with this Link! on Facebook, Check out all the photos for all the ranges that they have.Everything is also hand made! Kawaii! (^_^)

So what was sent to me?
I got a cute parcel addressed to me and inside was a parcel containing my items.
Which everything was bubble wrapped in safely and carefully.


Since this was send to me I cant comment on how fast the shipping was but it was sent by royal mail 1st class which is approx 1-3 working days. But I have ordered from them in the past and shipping as always come at in expected estimated delivery.


So Cute!! I was not expecting the necklace!
What a Kawaii Suprise- House of Wonderland must know me well for my love of Kawaii!


Here is the necklace, Its so glittery and a nice size and weight to it ,when its on. Am wearing it as we type this as today am in casual and needed some thing Kawaii to add to my outfit.
Its half Glittery pink and Purple with 'Kawaii' on the scroll.
The finish on the item is smooth to touch and the glitter it not gritty to touch so it will not catch on your  tops!

The Earrings are Hello Kitty inspired Bow styles, They are baby pink with a darker pink outline and finished with a lovely shiny gloss.They are adorable!  They come with rubber backs, I much prefer Rubber backs cause with butterfly's my wigs get caught in them , So YAY! (^_^)v


As you can see they are a nice size, They are also light weight too!
I love them but then they are just like Hello Kitty's very own bows- hehe!



So! my overall review,Check out House of Wonderland they have a huge Range and bring out lots of new things every month or so and I have seen the most adorable Unicorn Necklace that is new that I think should sell like crazy,Its so Cute!!

Till next time

Hello Kawaii fan's.
I've just come across the cute new Hello Kitty Penguin theme.
''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!




I really hope to see more of these over here! Way to cute to miss out!
So many cute things, which ones do you like the best?
Till next time.
Stay super Kawaii!

Doj-con Event

Hello Kawaii Fan's.
So at the weekend I went to Scotland's free anime convention. Doj-con.
I arrived about a hour into the event, it was a really good event and more so for some one that has never been to a event. Like myself.

When I got there there was no need to stand in line,more a less walked right in, I went with my sister who wanted to take some photos and see what all the fuss was about.Any how the event was on all 5 levels.I didn't get  into see any talks or join in any battles or games, I really was just wondering around taking everything in to be honest.I felt sorry for those on the stalls they looked all very crammed in and thought that they would have been better having spread them out on all the other levels but hey that's just me!.The amount of folk there was impressive.At points it felt like you were just standing in one place to get past or trying to join a flow of cosplayer's and people to get out of the levels to the next.I was actually dreading stairs with so much traffic but it was fine once every one stayed to the left...It was like being back at school haha! 
Any how here is a bunch of Photo spam for you all to enjoy!




My sweet yet toned down outfit co-ord for the event,I wore my brand new wig from Lockshop too and really liked the whole outfit .I really love wearing beret hats too hehe
Here are more photos from the event its self.

Cheap vs Expensive Wigs

Hi every one, So for some time know I have wanted to review the difference between Cheap wigs against Expensive wigs. I am a bit of a snob of your quality wigs, such as brands as Lock Shop and Gothic lolita wigs.
You can pick up a wig with ease from anywhere on the internet.Likes of Ebay for example and get them at a very low price, about £10- £15 in value, Often with free shipping. If you a devoted wig wearer like myself you will be wanting to read this.This is my own personal thoughts and what I like in a wig. Am not saying that  all cheap wigs are crap and that you must buy because I say so! No .No its your money so spend it as you wish....but I hope my post can shed some light on why some wigs are more costly than others and such.
(^__^)
Back Ground information here, Is that I have got about 5 years of hairdressing and salon training ,I've dyed my real hair many a times and every colour, but over use I took a reaction that leave me unable to dye my hair ,and my hair is very weak and poor. Since 2 years ago I been a wig wearer.

So lets take a look and read on...

Step into spring every one Pastel colours are back in with this seasons trends (like last year but more shades.) Last year I didn't get into them. I felt they were not really my thing but then I came across those mixing it with Gothic styles.

Lolita Wish List!

Hello Every-one.
I thought I would post up my Lolita wish list hehe! This is a more cheerful post than from last time.I think I have just come to the point of accepting some things will just not work out for me.
So I thought there are other dreams and wishes I have and what better way of having them on my Blog to remind me of Kawaii dreams and wishes right?!
Soo Most of this stuff is from bodyline which makes up most of my JSK's but hey its affordable and its not a big deal if anything gets on them or damaged by accident.So yea hehe (^_^)v

Random thoughts on Lolita and Life

Hey every one so I duno but yea am in a bit of a off mood.I guess I have been for a few days. I could blame female stuff and such but I think its been the depressing weather we have had for so long and even optimist Kawaii type  gets a bit gloomy and down ( Like a sorta gloomy bear being cute and pink and all bit crazy...and such hahahaha(-_-;) Yea ?!). (T^T) uhuh.
So ... Lolita.Life.
Yea..

New shoes- Lolita Tartan and Sweet

Ah I think I have a bit of a back log of Blog posts here- with being so busy I forgot about my new shoes,
How that happen?!
Never mind here is a small Blog review on my 1st lolita shoes from Bodyline. I felt super nervous buying from them as the site is rather scary looking in some ways with charts and pop ups of ARE YOU SURE ?!
But I took a deep breath and only spent a small amount in case it all went wrong and ordered my 1st Lolita shoes!


Well the came in one piece and no damage.

Tartan Updates and Adventures

Wow , What on earth is going on? My world suddenly has started turning in a crazy but a good crazy spin.
With us working on a kitchen which has left me stuck in the house for over a week- don't fancy leaving my house unattended with work men and such walking in and out.I been a bit bored so I took part in a few contests,I think am gona have to stop them cause every time I win. That company become interested in me -teehee!

Sort of funny in a way. I think these things do happen for a reason though.
May it be the universe on my side but this year is looking so promising for me!
After talks with a other company which I won a prize from a huge set of Hello Kitty Chinese New Year decorations!
I agreed to being a Guest Kawaii Blogger for them .Which they will announce today!
Its going to be a lot of fun and extra work but this will still be my baby.
I think it will be a more personal Blog- I hope that I can keep it running for you all.
