Welcome To The New Super Cute Kawaii!

Posted on


With Claire and the Le Buns retiring, it’s the end of an era, but I hope you’ll stick around as there’s plenty more cuteness to come. Here’s what’s happening:

SCK newsletter


To start with, we’ve had a bit of a redesign to celebrate our 6th anniversary  – I hope you like it! Since me and Claire started the blog as Bunny & Panda, I felt like we needed to add some new animal friends. I’d also like to keep Bunny & Panda just for us, so I’m now posting with an icon of my own kawaii-fied face – hello! If and when we hire new writers they’ll also be using their own names and avatars and not one of the SCK animals. Instead I’ll be using them as our mascots for images, banners and social media.

New writers

Speaking of new writers, applications are now closed and we’ve put together a shortlist from our favourites – if you haven’t heard back, you weren’t successful, sorry! You’ll be seeing posts from our potential new writers on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the next couple of months and we’d really like your input as to which writers you like best. After that, we will hopefully be hiring one or two to join the SCK staff for more regular posts.

Advertising Offer

SCK ads are currently reduced for a short time, while we all adjust to the new regime, so it’s a great opportunity to nab an ad for those busy Christmas shopping weeks and promote your shop. Starter ads are now just $10 so don’t miss out – these price cuts won’t stay around forever.

Kawaii Videos

I’ll be sharing some of the reader survey results soon (still time to add your thoughts, and enter the giveaway!) but one new feature idea that a lot of people weren’t too keen on was video round-ups. Instead, I’ve set up a Super Cute Kawaii YouTube account so we’ll be sharing our favourite kawaii videos there instead. Check out our playlists, give us a follow and there will be much more to come!


We’ll still be organising awesome giveaways but we’d also love to hear more from our winners. A few of you have sent us videos and blog posts in the past. I’d love to see more, and to collect them here on SCK – if you’ve won a giveaway in the past, please email us with any photos, blog posts or videos you’ve taken so we can share them.

And the usual cute posts…

That’s enough admin and news for now – thanks for your patience. We’ll be back with the usual cute shops, makes, reviews and more as of tomorrow!
