Rilakkuma and Kittens



Its time for a Shop and item Kawaii review!

Way back in July I caved in when I finally laid my eyes on these darling- and I mean darling cute, super adorable images of the new Collection with Rilakkuma , Our loveable bear dressed as a Cat! So naturally I had to hunt these cuties down and get my paws on them! Cause I love Cats! 
I had to do a pre-order and did this with Mira Plush a company I found via Facebook. Thanks to winning a small giveaway they held. 

So I ordered way back in July and the shop said they were expecting the items in around october, I was very content with the customer service and updates I got. Even to say that they had shipped my orders.
My order came the other day  so the shipping once dispatched took about 1 and half weeks to arrive. 
I placed 2 orders and they both came at the same time.*Warning heavy photo spam of Kawaii-ness!*


My items came in a bubble wrap bag and sealed in their own plastic bags.









As you can see there is so much detail as Rilakkuma as a little tabby cat, He has the markings, a Red collar with golden bell, paws on him and even little whiskers on his checks. He is super soft and soo cute!
I was going to order Korilakkuma but cause am such a big fan of Kiiroitori  ( the yellow bird) I got him in his Cat outfit instead! Again he has a lot of cute cat details just like Rilakkuma too!




I paid about $25 for each plush and I was very happy with the service and items I got I would return back to the seller again and would recommend them.



Hope you enjoyed the review!

How to be Kawaii -Skin Care

Hey cuties!
Oh am so sorry I have been so half bothered about my blog, I suppose I really have had no motivation of late to blog about anything, everything has gone so quite! But I have not forgotten about my blog!
I am actually going to give it a bit of love and attention by giving it a make over! but it will take time . Talking of Make overs my blog post today is going to be all about my Skin Care routine.
Having Good healthy clear skin is a start on becoming and staying super Kawaii!

I am often asked, ''What's your secret?'' '' How is your skin so clear and perfect?'' ''Do you suck the youth of children to look so young?!''. Well yes I do suck the youth of children to keep my eternal young looking skin- that there, is my secret...OF course not!! *stares blankly* So I thought, I would share what I do. It really is not any secret at all. And if it helps you in any way or might give you some ideas then its worth a shot then.

The Brands that I use are Simple its a nice easy to use range of products , The Moisture, Toners and make up removers .These are products I have used for years and like them as they are gentle and light on my kind of skin..I have no idea what sort of skin I have but I will take a guess and say its c
The other products I use are the Good things Range from Boots which are the Manuka and Honey products of a Mask and Face Scrub. These I use either once a week, or every second week, I try to keep it to once a week to keep on top of giving my face a good clean but sometimes that is not the case. The Mask and the scrub smell so nice to me it is like giving myself a treat or some me time. As having a 3 year old little one clinging to you 24/7 . Some times you just want a bit of time to your self!

I admit I do not aways remember to use my Moisture and Toners, I try my best to mind to use my products before make up and such but am just being honest I do not always have the time. But one thing I do do, which i think plays a big part of keeping my skin nice and healthy is. I take off all my make up before bed, There was a time * hangs head in shame* where I would roll in from the dancing ( back in the day.) and be like out for the count or not be bothered to remove the make up and wake up the next day with make up smeared all over my face and pillow.. Not a Pretty sight haha!
Now I have a go to bed routine which is using my Simple products of Make up wipe removers. I switch from a cleanser one to a ex-foliate one the both do the same job. Once I get all my make up off I pay close attention to the eye area and be gentle around that and my lips.

Now if any of you know me well..I LOVE bright coloured and high pigmented lips, From Hot Pink to Bright Red! I love to have bright colours but those sorta colours can be powerful and some times dry your lips out or those ones which have high staying power ...yuno the ones, that are like water proof smudge proof and bullet proof, yup those's ones! They can really take it out on your lips so I like to use a lip scrub I got an Asian brand one- the name I have  forgotten- I use that every week when I do my face skin scrub and Mask.
But the other thing I do every night is layer on some chap stick or lip balm for my lips to get hydrated while I sleep.

Talking of sleep! Sleep is also a great thing for your skin. When you sleep your skin repairs its self, and a other top tip is drinking LOTS of Water! Yea when I have a cheeky day of junk food ...What? It's okay.. some times you have to eat all the things and junk and fizzy drinks but...I take the next day to snap out of it and avoid all junk food and flush it out my system by drinking more water, its good for your system and your body!
The other thing I like to do when I can is I take every so often a NO- Make-up day(s)! Yup that means NOTHING AT ALL! I go about my day bare faced and face all so natural, Its a good idea to let your skin breathe every once and a while , if you are not keen on the idea why not pick it as a day where you are not up for doing anything  or on holiday. I am not a person who can not leave the house with out make up but I do like to keep my best. But its something I do suggest you try.

Remember every one has different skin so some of the products I use might not be best suited for you - so best talk to those beauty girls at the department stores and am sure they can help you with products and skin care too!

So every one that's the big old secrets to my eternal youth *cough* I mean the secrets to my Skin Care, its just basic stuff and like every one else some times am on top of my game other times am not, but that's okay. I will just pick up the pieces tomorrow

How to stay Kawaii , Positive and Optimistic

Hey every one, am sorry I have not been about on my blog much . It's been a month or something like that.
I wanted to do this post though cause I have not really been feeling, well myself. Both from being un well and emotionally all over the place. It can be super hard being so optimistic all the time and all so positive. I do my very best to encourage others to also keep their chin up and always there if any one needs me. But looks like I burnt the candle at both end of the stick!  My bad.
I guess when you have dreams and goals to reach you get dis-hearted when you see others surpassing you, even though I am a firm believer in ''things happen for a reason.'' Anyway leaving all that gloomy-ness aside I thought I would share the things I do when I get a bit low in my moods and need to pick myself up. Maybe some of these can help you too?! It's worth a shot anyway, Right?

How to stay Kawaii, positive and optimistic.

Some times life can take its ups and downs and can leave you feeling down, it can effect you in so many ways some get depressed others feel down right awful. It's okay it is human nature for that to happen , we all go through it at some point in our life.When I find myself feeling down,I take myself out of the situations and find a quite place - often my bedroom- and remind myself how damm lucky I am and that somewhere there is others who are not as blessed as me. And I count my blessings from my health , having a roof over my head and a wonderful cute little family.

Then I firmly tell myself its time to'' Man up Princess!!'' I then will go and do something as if I was to take on the world one step at the time from taking a bath or go and give myself a face mask, cause you gotta look good taking on the the world right. This will include using am beauty products and skin care mixed with my Kawaii pampering products, but of course!

Those 2 steps alone can snap right out of it but if that don't work . I move on to the next step...this is a great one, turning on your most up beat CD, in my case its my Kyary Pon Pon albums. Turn up the sound and dance and sing along like no one can hear or see me. ( may be a good thing I would hate to embarrassed any poor soul to be subject to that!) Might sound crazy but it and shift a mood pretty quickly.


The other things that I find help is picking a bright colour to wear may it be in my outfit or layering on a accessories and not giving a damm about what any one things, as in one of those days you put on those crazy like earring on that do not match and damm thing in your wardrobe but your wearing it anyway and it makes you happy- It makes you feel like its your armour. Or picking that lippy that clearly you know damm well fine that it is not matching your skin tone-lol- but gurl your wearing it regardless cause you need that pick me up, so just go for it!
Taking a walk has a great uplifting effect but when its pretty wet outside I retreat to my Kawaii room where I throw myself on top of my 4ft Doughnut (rubber ring pool toy- random I know lol) and surround myself with my cute and Kawaii stuff and have a huff or a sulk because we are only human and every one needs a good huff every so often, Chibi bean is the queen of huffs and then I change my thoughts on being thankful for all the wonderful things I have. Some times you have to put things back into perspective


Lastly the other thing I do it smile, keep on smiling and then get back up dust off the dirt . Grab some glitter and throw it around and get back to your working on those dreams and goals, Some times set backs and obstacles get in the way to test how strong we are. But even though it hurts, upsets or annoys us at the time if it didn't test us then it we would not appreciate  the dreams and goals when we get finally do get them.

Doing these things* , even repeating them over and over and snapping out of feeling down helps me... Maybe some of these things might help you. Or even just knowing that even myself can not be ultra - super - kawaii every day of the year might help you. Every one has ups and downs but you can do it!

 I believe in you!

*if any of you think you suffer from low moods or depression in any way or form please seek out your local doctor . Or find some one you trust to talk to about your feelings *

Kawaii London- Item review.

Hey guys , a good while back I put a order into a Esty store called Kawaii London, that has some very interesting and quirky items. I found them via facebook which in turn lead me to the online shop.
Facebook linkShop and Esty links for ya.

What really attracted me there was the bright and bold colours, I saw a jumper that looked super cute and cosy and just of late , I went through all my jumper and am disgusted in my Kawaii self. HOW on EARTH did I neglect jumpers! About 80% of them are old, shabby, un loved ,dull and so un-kawaii ...some one call the Kawaii police its that bad!

I just can't...Any way I was like RIGHT, winter time means jumpers so I have taken it in my hands to find and update my jumpers/sweaters to the Kawaii level that they should be at.
Because my order was places through Esty it was super easy to order, put it in the basket and use pay pal . Done. So this is a small independent designer who doses these which is why I was happy to pay about £20 for the jumper I wanted.

My order was a bit delayed but this was in no fault of the seller as it was due to a bank holiday in England. These things happen. So my order came in the post, well presented and packed neatly.


Oh yea I also got a Barbie inspired  bracelet, it was so quirky and cute but after a week - I caught it on the hoover , Well the part where you wrap the cord up after you been doing the hoovering and then go to tidy it away...yea I do house work guy's , the kawaii life do have it pit falls lol! Well ,that bit yeah? My bracelet snagged on it...beads everywhere. Gutted.
So it was a short relationship with the bracelet. But I really loved it and was wearing it every day. Am such a shatter brain at times. I should have taken it off to do the chores . Any I do have it in some of the photos I took.




As you can see the Bracelet was so cute, but the jumper is really awesome too. The jumper has diamonds all over it some are glitter others are yellow -ish shade and a sky blue shade and the all very sharp and clean cut on the HOT pink over all jumper colour.
I picked a M size which is to be a UK 12, I picked it because I love my baggy jumpers to cuddle under and cosy up with and liked the idea of a over size, I think if I did pick the S size it too would be nice a roomy when worn. Inside the jumper is a soft and fleece fuffly feeling. Making it nice a cosy!



If you love diamonds and hot pink and love a bold piece of clothing then this is the shop for you.
I have already spied a other outfit I would like to purchase from Kawaii London. I think I will wait till the end or next month to pick something . Mind you it might not get much ware out of it as its more like a summery item! LOL


Laters Kawaii Cuties!

Kawaii Haul of Cute and MCM Glasgow


Every one ! How are you all ?
Seems like forever since I did a blog post - whoops my bad! So I thought I would get back on my laptop and blog away some stuff , Oh but my typical luck my laptop broke on me so I had to delay it even more. - sigh-.
So to cheer myself up with all my bad luck of late, I swear some one is cursing me. I treated myself to some fun Kawaii goodies. 
I ordered from one of my fave online esty stores, Frilly pops and order a pair of HOT pink pom pom earrings I saw the colour and fell in love with them and also I got a gift from the sweetie store owner which was such a surprise. A other set of earrings of mini pom poms in a leopard print style, they were so cute and stylish.


I love these pink pom poms so much they are so sassy and cute. I am not much of a girly girl but I do love my Pink stuff, The brighter the better!

I also got on order from 2 shops in the USA. A place I love and admire all the time I  am chubby bunny for her stylish and bold Kawaii looking hair bows , I have seen. I eventully picked one I have had my eye on for a while , I like ordering from here cause it comes so fast and its such a delight to open!



As well as getting my bow I also picked a pair of stars and heart earrings.
Am very happy with my order. Everything is soo cute!
The other place I Ordered from is a place I have not shopped with before I am your Present which is a Esty store, I picked up 2 super kawaii pieces that are soo cute and fun looking.
One is a collar clip with unicorns on it , that looks so magical and a pair of crazy colourful earrings.



I Just love these, they sent me a extra pair of earrings that I sent off to a pen pal as I cant wait really wear small earrings am scared I will lose them lol! I love the clips cause you can play about with many ideas with them. And Unicorns!! Who don't like Unicorns! The Stars are so fun and bubbly and cute.

Last weekend was the weekend of MCM Glasgow comic con. It was lots of fun and I got to hang out with my friends who were all dressed up form Lolita to Cosplay which was so cool . I only bought food and a plushie for my Chibi bean- a Yoshi one.  As I have seen other things I wanted to buy online later this month.
I ended up meeting a great cosplayer as the Joker ,in the queue. I was meeting my friends inside the event and spoke away. I seem to mange to be myself at conventions cause every one there has something in common with you and you don't need to spend long to find out what you have in common. I have a video to edit and up load and also got more you tube videos to do - watch this space !
So here is some of my photos!








So this was Glasgows 2nd MCM , I have to say that this year they were much more prepared for the numbers! A bigger hall was picked and the queue system ran smoothly . There was so many stalls and merch to let your eyes wonder too. I really went for the cosplay more than anything. But with a 5.30 am start I really did not get in the mood for taking photos this time. which is gutting but never mind. This year I was semi- dressed as Super Mario!

The only problem I had was my moustache kept coming off! Gahh!! I also did get to take photos of the Stunning Sailor moon who my friend Keara dressed as in cosplay! Which you can find here on this link.
https://www.facebook.com/LeCuirotPhotography

I had a good weekend even though I was still recovering from the cold I got, and its nice to go and meet up with friends and do something we all enjoy. It was super fun maybe a bit awkward when others asked for our pictures, I really did not think my cosplay was very good haha! Next time I will defo pick a better cosplay and take way more photos!

so till next time!

The Sake - A Japanese Performance

Last weekend I and my sweetie Hubby went to see The Sake - a Japanese performance that was on at the Edinburgh Fringe. I knew about the show as there as a preview performance on stage when I was down at Hyper Japan. 


So when we found out about this and it being on our door step we made sure to book some tickets , the baby sitter and went to on our way. I was not completely sure what to expect as the we only saw a small preview on the Hyper Japan stage all the event said was it was a story and performance with lights.



These are all photos from Hyper Japan, from The Sake preview. Which I really enjoyed so I was looking forward so much to seeing the full length show.The Show is a Story , through music dance and stunning dance with drapes and ribbons.



The Story of the Sake takes you through a year of the season in which each season there is the aspects of elements that are used to make the Sake. The performers are all stunning and the narrator is charming witty and drunk ( acting btw.) sake brewer . The Spring has light images projected  of the Cherry blossom season where you watched a stunning dancer , performing with grace and beauty which then led to the musician using something  that looked like some kind of metal drum. That created the sound of rain that soon led to a down pour and that's when we meet more artists who used ropes and outfits to represent the elements of the Thunder and Wind gods of Shinto.

 It was utterly jaw dropping stuff. This was when the Bass and guitar players start playing music to complement the mood of the Ropes spinning at top speed with the dancers on them. - Kyaa!!



Soon next came the next month of Autumn and  and the light hearted fun came into play with our narrator chasing the cheeky mice and getting people from the crowd to come on stage and par take lessons from him wielding the sword to deal with the mice snacking on the Rice. Soon after we get to admire the ' Magic' that is then performed  to make the Sake well.. Sake.  hehe which was just magical to watch.




Derpy me and some of the Cast Performers.
After some fun and entertainment of magic the Winter comes into play, where we meet more of the Elemental Gods of winter and possibly Frost while the sake ages and brews. Again a other stunning perfomace with dance and music . As well as this one performer who was spinning and dancing with only 2 pieces of  long thick ribbons from the top of the stage.


It was a very interesting performance and show I really enjoyed it very much it was just magic, As much as love the Kawaii aspect and fashions from Japan, I have a huge soft spot for the much more traditional side of Japan. 





After the performance, I went over to greet the Narrator and the Cherry Blossom dancer , I thanked them for a lovely show ( using my broken Japanese haha.) And said how we heard about them . The Cherry Blossom dancer was tickled pink with this and she was UTTERLY STUNNING! She even offered me a gift of signed post cards of her after hearing we saw them at Hyper Japan. Which then got others talking and wondering who I was to get a slightly different treatment than them! Which was kind of funny.

If you ever do find out that this show, The Sake is on near you it is so worth checking out!
Till next time!  Kanpai!!! *raises a Sake Box*

Back to being a Kawaii Mama and life again

Hey guys - how are you all?
So what's new? I have not done a Blog post in a while. I have been visited by the charm of mother nature - which have dragged me down and am back to the reality of the School Runs of being a Kawaii Mama. *sigh* Which has left me limited to blogging. See this is why I adore the school holidays I can get everything done! And not need to worry if I can get away with being Super Kawaii and having them odd looks from the other mums, in saying that am finding that they like my bright pink lippy , so I guess am braking them in slowly - heh-.

Do you ever feel that cause you love cute stuff or anything in this matter , that you have to tone it down around others cause your not up for explaining every single time that its just your style? I don't have the time to explain or express at 8am in the mornings while dropping off a 3 year old who likes to refuse to go into the class and then abandons me as soon as she see's her play pals. I just don't have time too. lol! I need to head back and use the very little time of freedom to blitz the house and tidy it up.

Over the holidays, I have been having fun with events and lots of play time with my daughter and spending time as a family its always nice and sometimes stressful. It also gives me a chance to explore and have some fun with Kawaii fashion with out getting the odd risen eyebrow from other mothers and have started up my You tube videos again - yay! On my You tube you can get enjoy my Kawaii Character Videos ! I hope to do as many as I can and try and do them every weekend. when I have the time too. Please Check them out if you like! Here is the Link!

The other week I went to a Alice in wonderland themed Cafe  which was a nice change, Its a nice place in Edinburgh City I was taken there are a treat with my Sister while we had been shopping.

I have a few photos on my Instagram from being there so check it out! Its a cute little place, that has bits and pieces form the Alice in wonderland movie and films. Such as a Table and Chair on the ceiling, The red queens rose garden and art from the movie's in frames that are all topsy turvy. It's more of a tea room than a cafe and plenty of brews to pick from the selected menu. We only had time for a rose lemonade and cake!

So while keeping busy I am also know contributing to a UK website full of interesting and up to date information from Games to Anime called Cyten worth checking them out! I will be their Kawaii lifestyle contributor along side Kawaii fashion Queen and cutie Aisha Anime! www.cyten.co.uk

I have a few upcoming projects and events at least these are a bit more spaced out that the start of the year! But I will be attending MCM - Scotland in a sorta attempt of Cosplay , keep a eye on my Facebook to find out some clues for this! As well I be at the Scottish Gaming Expo and  Aunchinawa this year.  So if you do spot me and wana come say Hello then be sure to come on over I don't bite and I will have my Camera on me too. Oh and am only 2 units away from completing my Photography course and I have some projects that I will be needing some models for! which is really cool too!

So yea sorry its a bit of a dull post but I thought maybe you all were bored of reviews and such and would love to get your feed back on the stuff you wana see, hear and know about on both my blog and you tube since am using both much more than I did in the past! - huhuh-
So till next time Laters

Luna.TU Review

Hey every one, how are you all doing?
I have a review for you all and some links to my newest Videos! Today review is from the online line store LunaTU . It is a new online web store that sells Japanese and Koren make up , skin care and beauty items. There is even a Kawaii section too. Any way I put in a order with them last Thursday and my order came on Saturday- yea my review is a tad late but I had some beauty out brakes and my skin was like woah!! Easy now, take a time out and go all natural. But after a lot of detoxing .So did I get around to testing the items from my order. So here is my review for you all!

My order came really fast and was well wrapped in Bubble wrap.I ordered 3 items. The website gives a clear description on each item. I got a lip mask, a lip moisture/concealer and eye-liner. All the items came in a super cute packaging. Kawaii ~
Sorry in advance of the , lack of photos- I happend to use the items in a video before I wrote in my blog!


So lets check out the items! 1st up is the lip  concealer, made for toning down red lips and moisture. Doubled up as a lip base for under your fave lippy or gloss. The product is cute and small with a stick of shimmery nude pink. I used it under my own normal bright lippy for a even tone and bring out the shade from the lippy I use, ( Barry M btw.)



This item can be used alone as well and I think it would be a girls best friend for doing 'Dolly'' or 'Rose bud style'' lips. It glides on very easy and smooth and shimmery. The other Lip product I got was the Glossy Lip mask. Omg this product was amazing. weird at first to use but yea wow. I love it it left my lips feeling super and I mean super ,soft and moist. You can have it on for 5- 30 mins. It looks really creepy on but its really amazing!


The final product I ordered was the Sailor moon Miracle Romance, Black Eye liner. A 20th Anniversary product. which came packed and all pretty. The eye liner pen is also cute. Pastel pink with gems and images all over it such as a moon and even Luna the cat. Its quite a small eye liner pen to what am used too.I picked the Black shade.
The eye liner is a felt thin and I mean super thin tip(0.1mm)!! That is something I have not seen over here in the UK market of eye liners. I have given this a go and it glides on so well and you can layer it up to thicken the liner on your lids.


Over all am very happy with my order. Again because there was a lack of presentation my order didn't feel very Kawaii when opening. (Again this is a total personal thing of mine. I cant help it that I think every thing must be super cute!!!) Hehe.
However. I can seem me ordering again. I would say from what I have tried already . I would like to try the lip mask again it was really good. I would want to try other products too such as the skin care and would recommend this shop . I look forward to all the new exciting products that will be stocked soon.

Hope you all like my review!
Till later Tartan <3

Cute Japanese Fashion Haul review.


Hey every one, This post is a Fashion review on a parcel of goodies I got in the post. All the items are from Cute Japanese Fashion  who part sponsored me in this review.
So I put a order in on Thurday last week,and my order came a few days later (Saturday.)

 The site is easy to use and its easy to find items. I like the wish list where you heart the items and can keep them saved and then later buy them when you have the money. It's maybe too handy haha.  So I ordered 2 wigs (love wigs.) and one top and a jumper.  There is a nice selection to look and and pick from and its easy to find the stuff in your size. Most items listed on the site have been changed into UK sizes and are a range from size 6- 14.

Again the wigs are a new thing which they do not have to much of a collection but it seems to be growing each week with a few wigs added.





So here is my haul of goodies  It always exciting to get stuff in the post, I would like to point out that the wigs do come with a wig cap and they are currently being posted out to me - its nice to get good customer service! As I said I got a jumper , top and 2 wigs.


I can say the items are true to the stock images on the site , so no worries there.
As I have ordered from the store in the past, I know the stuff is pretty long lasting and one of my tops I got ages ago is still my fave one ,its a a top with stripes and a red heart on it. You most likely have seen it on facebook somewhere in my photos.

So the tops, one is a Black Milk Logo one with pink and sunny yellow paint blobs on it. Paint ball, any one? I really liked this one cause as much as I adore being all Kawaii Queen I like the street sorta look too.
Its a 3/4 sleeve top in white with the Logo and its a pretty long one in length. It is pretty thin so you could wear a tank top under it or keep it for summer days or holidays. Either way I really like it. Its Price is £10.99
I would say it s size 8-14 cause its super baggy and lots of space.


 The other item was the Jumper top. Its really cute , Its a thin jumper which is great for summer nights or those slightly chilly days, again colder months I would throw a tank top under it. Scotland is always cold. You think I would be used to the cold - haha! I love the Black little hearts all over the jumper its very cute and I feel as a Kawaii moma, I could wear this every day or causal for picking the Chibi bean up at pre-school and not stand out to much from the other mum's...(kinda haha) 
This one I would say size wise is about a 8- 12 with a bit of room to slip on a t-shirt under it. Its price is £15.99.


I also got 2 new wigs the first one is a Blonde wig its a short straight one. I liked the colour of it and its price is £10.99. Its quite a shocker being Jet black and putting on a Blonde wig. I like its style. The shade, its more of a warm blonde and its not the most natural looking shade. I have noticed all the wigs are pretty light weight and not heavy when worn. I found this wig a bit shiny for my taste and am not overly keen on the bangs/ fringe. It might just be me but am not use if it suit me at all. However is cute fun and really quirky , I would say its more a cosplay style wig, maybe. Am not sure. But for the price its a pretty cute wig.


The second wig- OMG its soo cute, I saw this one ages ago and was like , its so adorable I gotta have it!
The wig is  £17.99 the main stock image shows it in twin tails that have been plated but I can say its the same colour as the stock image baby blue and baby pink and its a lose curls style style. Again its light weight and I just love the colours . Even though its pastel shades its not as shiny as the blonde one. I have noticed the fibres are a bit thinner but at that price you can not go wrong. Talking with knowledge here as I have shed out up to £50 for wigs, I would say these wigs are well priced for the products you are getting.

So over all am super happy with my items, the service and such from Cute Japanese Fashion. I would love to see more personal touches to my orders ( but that is me being fussy haha) . It is a online store I would recommend if you are looking for some cute mature looking items and the wigs are a lot of fun too.

So here are some Kawaii photos I took with my items to let you see them worn and on.





Any way I hope you all like my blog post and I should have a video up in the next few days!

Till next time
