Making memories-a mummy post.


Hello every one. Hope you are all having a lovely week and staying very Kawaii!
I guess this is going to be a bit of a mummy like post today .As you readers are well aware this month is my final month in this house, we will be moving at the end of the month and getting a new bigger house to fit us all in with a bit of breathing room, hehe. The main thing for me as a muma to Beanie is that she grows up in a nice place and goes to a good school. Myself on the other hand, I didn't really get to make a mark on this current house. I have always felt like I have been renting this place. Its not felt like a cosy home...maybe cause am always cold in this house.
Any way because we are moving rather far from my own family, I wanted to have some sort of photo arrangement set up in the new house with a bit of Kawaii added to it of course! 

The 1st thing I did was treat myself to a new Camera,a Instax FugiFilm 25 mini. An a adorable looking instant camera aka a Polaroid Camera.A simple Point and shoot. I have found with a Digital Camera that as they may be saved on the computers but I forget to print them off. So I treated myself to the Instax.




Its a nice cute thing and makes really cute photos that come out in seconds to develop in a few minutes later.Perfect I have had  a lot of fun with this already its a great way to make new memories.
One of my idea to show off my new photos came shortly after seeing this really cute looking memo board on Facebook and I fell in love with it.
I got this cute idea at The-Kawaii-Cupcake on FaceBook.
It only cost me 16 for a Hand made Pink and white spotty memo board with little flowers added to it and small hearts,It fitted in my idea of new decoration for the new house so I ordered it right away.
I had to share the photos of it as I did take it out wrapping to look at it, teehee.
Its just so cute and pretty.
I cant wait to add to this and hang it up in my new Kitchen! Hehe.


It will come in handy for shopping lists and to do lists, which I seem to be making all the time these days. 


The colours are just lovely .


There is some cute girly details added to the conner's.


As you can see I still need to fill it up with Kawaii over load! Most of my stuff is in boxes ,so once we move into the new house I can go a bit more Kawaii Crazy with it hehe!
I hope to add more Photos to it as well! (Ill make lots of cute memories too!)
Its very cute and been made with love, It would make a cute new house gift for some one or even for a student or Teenager to have up in their room as a organiser of some sort hehe.

Do any of you like to do Cute things to add to your homes/Rooms. I hope to be adding a lot of  Kawaii touches around my new house. Which I also hope to share with you all once I am settled and the internet is up and running.So Check out The Kawaii Cupcake Facebook page and the new Esty Shop they are planning to open too!!

Till next time

MCM Glasgow Comic con 2013

Hey every one, hope you are all well and staying Kawaii! On Saturday was the 1st Scottish mcm comic convention.


It was my 1st mcm to date but not my 1st convention. It was a early start for my day out, rushing about and packing up and dropping little chibi bean off at her Grannies, I fear, she is far to young and little for such events and would not enjoy herself.Also I would be in Mummy mode and I never have asked any one to take her for me to go out for a whole day.

So any way because we (Hubby and I )bought early tickets we headed off pretty early. I was going to cosplay but as I had been so unwell I was far from the mood of cosplaying. So my outfit was just casual and comfortable,also I was planning to take lots of photos.  And in genral have a nice day with Hubby. We got there in one piece but made 2 wrong turns lol. Thank goodness we had the Sat Nav! 

We were very lucky and got into a line waiting for entry, It was not to long a wait maybe about 20mins.
I took my time around the event, I was impressed with  what it had to offer lots of merchandise to buy!
There was a lot of cosplays , some really great ones too,I love to see the effort of others how put time and effort into them and see them having fun,I got to meet a few interesting Characters.Also I got to see my gal aka my fellow HK BBF at her stall selling at Jazzy Little Magpie I didn't get a photo of her Stall because it was so busy and we also chattered a lot lol! She totally rocked it out in her Batman dress! I did borrow her picture though!!

Re-wallet review

Hello every one I have a new review up for you all today! Yay!  I got a interesting and lovely email about a small online place called ReWallets, Run by the lovely Jo. ReWallets is hand made wallets made out of recycled materials which is really cool idea! You can find them on Facebook and on the online store Here! They are based in Portugal and are all hand made.
After getting the email I had a look at the sites and really liked the cute  or should I say Kawaii  looking ReWallets and the idea of them being cute and recycled swayed me into ordering a custom one. Teehee!


So I was the 1st person to order form the Store envy. Wow cool huh, Normally I think it has be run via Facebook but here are the links for you to check out!
 Rewallet store and the Facebook.


So I want with the custom choice and simply sent in 2 images for my order. One side for the front the other for the back.  Then the rest is Deco Tape which is way to cute!
I wanted some thing a bit different but still kawaii and Cat themed so I went with a “Kutsushita Nyanko”Theme (X-San btw )


I took some nice photos of my parcel and what was inside along with images of the wallet for you all.
My order came neatly wrapped up and so pretty looking!
Felt more like a gift  from a friend! Kawaii!


More so with a personal Letter and cute little surprises too! I really enjoyed my herbal tea.
And here is my cute Wallet!


Cute or what!


Nya!


Covered in Deco Tape and Cats can you spot the inside logo from ReWallets inside?

You will see from the website and Facebook these fit into your back pocket and handbag, they are very sturdy and so cool, I hope to use mine at the MCM expo that am attending this weekend and easy to slip in and out of my outfit with ease. I adore the fact these can be custom made or you can 'Adopt' one 
 

And the fact its recycled is so cool.
You get such a friendly and nice service from Re-wallets, which is so nice to get from small companies.

Hope you enjoyed the post and look out for my extra surprise which I will update here and on Facebook for all you lovely readers

Lockshop Rosenrot tights Review


Yo kawaii lovers!
Hope you are all doing well and all that, so Lockshop had released the'' Rosenrot tights'' Leg wear for pre-order a while back,They were designed by Miss Coco (That's the lady that owns the Lockshop by the way if you are like ''Who?.''  They had a small selection to pick from, so after some debated I signed up for a pre-order on one of the designs.

Here is a look at what was on offer,Link here!



They all have a nice look to them on each design.I did debate over 2 styles which was the Kitty them one and the pink one. Maybe I was feeling extra girly that day as I ordered the pink ones in the end called 'Royal Ribbon'. So these are completely not my Personal style( is more a rock n roll mummy haha .)
...but my god they looked so pretty! The bows, ribbons, Stars and the pink...what's not to like...


So any ways, they came this week, I am sorta glad they came sooner rather than later as I knew they has some delays and I was thinking ''What if am moved house by the time they get here.''
Panic aside they came lol!

Wrapped in the postal plastic bag and well presented in its stylish sleek Rosenrot wrapper as seen in my awsum photos.




The tights details are on the site  and it says ''The tights are made of a blend of Nylon and Spandex at 110 Denier, making them extremely durable and not prone to snagging.''
So Denier is high which means they are not like see throw white or pale. Which I could see appeals to lots of styles and fashions.The Tights are silky and soft to touch and they are very comfortable to wear too.
I would at a guess say they might fit up to a UK 14 as am a small 12 and still had ton's of room and lots of stretch they will also suit those Tall folk among us as am a midget at 5ft 2 and had the top of the tights really high. 





So because these are not my normal type of style I have taken some snaps of them on with out adding them to a style and trust me it took a while to cord these with my own style since am not into lolita as much but I have got a Lolita dress which I hope to team these up with sometime. So I took a quick photo of this style to as a lot of lolita's buy wigs from Lockshop, (Long story short I gave up lolita, for exploring my own styles and fashion.)So here are some of the photos for you all.


I took a photo with no shoes so you can see the feet of the tights.



More my sorta style with the tights.

Over all thoughts, I would recommend them to some one,the styles are nice as are the design's because of this I think they are worth the price.Not what I would spend on a pair of tights every day but for maybe as a treat or to wear for a extra special event or occasion .

Mummy Tartan time with Hello Kitty star Chart


Hey guys, so am sure there will be a few of you readers might be mummy's and daddy's.As a mother myself and have a 2 year old comes a lot of new adventures of teaching them new things. Myself am trying to encourage Potty training and trying to encourage good behaviour , The List is endless. Right?



Anyways I and Chibi bean set up a time a few weeks back to up a reward chart for every successful potty achievement , Chibi bean would get a sticker and get to put it on the big chart , we made together. It sorta works even if Miss bean is being very sly by asking for the potty for no reason. Just to get a sticker haha!
I also am adding new tasks to it am not sure what but am thinking of things like, Putting away toys , Clearing her plate at meal times ect.



However Chibi bean likes her Hello Kitty as much as I do and other things like of princesses and Minnie mouse. I would have loved to have made her reward chart look a bit more...well Kawaii! Its just pen on 4 A4's stuck together.  LOL! I know my Blog with often  mention my daughter but I try to keep her offline as much as I can.
Any how I thought some of you other parents would love to see what I happen to find the other day!
