Do you love kawaii? Do you love making things? Do you love watching (and making) videos? If so, you could be working for Super Cute Kawaii!

Since Frainy moved on to other projects, we’ve been a bit short-handed. We’re looking for someone to join the team to help review craft kits & books, Japanese candy kits and subscription boxes, either in writing or videos. If you also have a passion for YouTube to help us share the cutest videos and channels, that would be great. If you like creating your own crafty tutorials too, that would be even better!

This is a paid position for 1-3 posts per month starting on a trial basis. You would also receive free products for review.

Could it be you?

We’re looking for kawaii fans of any age, gender and country, who speak and write English fluently and have some experience with blogging, YouTube and social media. If you applied unsuccessfully last time we hired writers, we’d love for you to apply again.

Want to try out? Here’s what to do:

Download the application pack, read it carefully and submit your application with 3 sample posts. The closing date is 30th September so get writing and good luck!

If you have any questions about the application process please leave a comment below or email writers@supercutekawaii.com.

Enamel Pins by Queenie’s Cards

Posted on August 30, 2016 by

Queenie's Cards

If you’ve been following the pin craze over on Instagram, you’ve probably spotted a few cute designs from Queenie’s Cards. While they started as pun-tastic card designers, their pins are some of the cutest I’ve seen.

Queenie's Cards

This happy mail is near the top of my pin wishlist as I’m always looking out hopefully for the postman every day but there are also lots of cute food and drink designs. I wish I could get my hands on the Pocky pin but it was a limited edition for a US Pocky promotion.

Queenie's Cards

If you love pins – and puns! – go check out Queenie’s Cards. They also have a great range of pillows, prints, stickers and more.

If you need a new bag for school or work, these pastel kitty totes are a cute option with plenty room for all your stuff.

These might be the cutest socks I’ve seen all year and that packaging is amazing. They’re just under $6 each and almost out of stock.

Two of my favourite things: Neko Atsume and stickers! Sticker books are great for displaying all your favourites and you get lots of cute ones to start you off.

Pusheen in the UK

Posted on August 26, 2016 by

Us poor Pusheen fans in the UK have had a hard time getting our hands on plushies and merch without paying huge shipping fees and crazy customs duties. Thankfully, there are more UK stores stocking Pusheen now, plus we get some exclusive products too.

pusheen at claire's

Claire’s is on every High Street and now has a small range of Pusheen items including stationery, phone cases, a mug and this cool backpack.

M&S pusheen

Marks & Spencer is not a place I expect to find kawaii, but they have some super cute Pusheen stationery and a few sets of pyjamas that would fit smaller adults too. My mum spotted Pusheen socks too but they don’t seem to be online.

ASOS pusheen

ASOS have some exclusive Pusheen stationery available if you want to be the coolest at school (or at home).

TruffleShuffle pusheen

TruffleShuffle have tons of stuff I haven’t seen anywhere else including t-shirts, bags, stationery, egg cups, chopping boards and hot water bottles!

new pusheen plush

And you can always rely on Artbox to stock all the kawaii Pusheen plush including coin purses and pencil cases, plus tons of cards for every occasion.

Some of these stores ship internationally too so Pusheen fans worldwide can add to their collections.
