Cute Cookie Creators to Follow

Posted on August 18, 2015 by

I just love to see pictures of cute baked goods. Some people are so skilled at baking and icing cookies, that their creations resemble tiny pieces of art. It’s almost a shame to eat them! Today I’d like to share 5 cookie creators with you who make mouth-watering sweets.

Eva regularly shares her creations on Instagram and also sells some of the cookie cutters in her shop.

Micarina

Micarina is a master at icing cookies! They are for sale in Shinjuku’s Isetan Department Store so you could try them if you happen to visit Tokyo.

melililou

Mélililou is another Japanese baker who’s work is well worth watching, she makes the sweetest characters.

Sweetopia

Marian from Sweetopia is a cookie decorator and cupcake baker, she often shares recipes on her website.

I love Stasia Burrington‘s work and have a print on my bedroom wall. Her paintings are cute and dreamy with fantasy elements and some cute cats too! I’d love to add more to my collection and there are so many pretty things to choose from in her Etsy shop including prints, cards, stickers, t-shirts and even underwear. You’ll also find her on Society6 for more products on-demand.

Kawaii T-Shirt Wish List

Posted on August 14, 2015 by

I’ve got back into t-shirts recently after not wearing them for a while. It’s just such an easy option when you work from home, and there are so many cute ones available. Here’s a few that are on my wish list.

lauraillustrates

It’s never too early in the year for me to get excited about Halloween, and especially cute ghosts, so I love this tee by Laura Illustrates. There’s a cute dinosaur one too.

pete ellison

Pete Ellison has lots of cool tees that are hand-printed for for a different look. He has lots of kawaii food designs and Kawaii Invaders is my favourite – it’s on sale just now too!

threadless

Threadless is always good for a browse, especially during their sales. I just picked up The Great Outdoors for myself – with the weather we’ve been having lately, it’s the best advice.

i like cats

I Like Cats have a really fun new line of t-shirts with cat pockets! There are four different designs, all with different cats.

pusheen

How could I resist Pusheen and cat-shaped balloons, especially on such a pretty shade of blue? There’s loads more cute tees at Hey Chickadee too.

San Jose Harajuku Fashion Walk

In July a group of fashionably cool people got together in San Jose, CA to walk around, show off their outfits, drink bubble tea and shop. It was a chance to make new friends, catch up with old friends and just hang out. Jacky organized the event and is a fan of thrifting and making the accessories she wears.

Tiny Kitten Teeth Prints

Posted on August 11, 2015 by

Becky and Frank from Tiny Kitten Teeth work side by side, making hand painted comics and cute creations. Their animal giclée prints are super cute and very affordable. Most of the prints are limited to an edition of 100, so you’ll surely have something special hanging on your wall.

Tiny Kitten Teeth

Sadly the Doenut print sold out while I was writing this post, but I just had to share it with you.

Tiny Kitten Teeth

Pastel the Kitten must be a reference to 80’s comics and anime, very nice!

Tiny Kitten Teeth

This Alpaca is part of the Bustletown collection isn’t it the cutest? I think it shows Becky’s love for Japan and Animal Crossing.

Tiny Kitten Teeth

Original artwork and prints by Becky can also be found at Gallery Nucleus, I’ve got my eye on this Lucky Cat print ( ^ω^ ).

3D latte art maker

If you want to impress your friends with super kawaii drinks then check out the Awata Ticino 3D Latte Art Maker. It fluffs up your milk and then you can sculpt animals and other cute shapes (that ghost!) from the foam.

Add some details with chocolate syrup and it might even be too cute to drink. It’s not that cheap at $62 but it is very very cute and you can use it for both hot and cold drinks. Pick one up from Japan Trend Shop or just check out the video below which is hilariously over-enthusiastic.

The Redesign is Complete!

Posted on August 9, 2015 by

new-SCK

Welcome back to the shiny new SCK! We’ve had a bit of a makeover and everything should be easier to use. Here’s what’s changed:

New look

This is the biggest design change since we launched almost 7 years ago. There’s just one sidebar with all the info and ads; a more useful menu bar for navigation at the top and easier browsing of categories, plus some pretty new fonts and things.

Responsive design

That means all the content resizes to fit perfectly on your screen, whether that’s a computer, tablet or phone, so no more zooming in or trying to press your finger on the right link.

iphone6

Bigger images

We feature some adorable products and now they’ll be bigger than ever so you can see all the cute details. This only applies from the previous week onwards, but something to look forward to.

Bigger ads

That might be a negative on some sites, but hopefully all our partners are super kawaii enough that you enjoy looking at their ads. Sadly we do need ad money to keep the site running and you can help even just by turning off your ad blocker for SCK.

New content

There are a few fun new features and pages in the new site. Look out for featured posts in the sidebar highlighting some of our more in-depth posts that you might have missed, a page of links to our favourite Super Cute Sites, an updated Shopping Guide and more to come.

More giveaways and reviews

Not really related to the redesign, but we do have some pretty awesome giveaways and reviews coming up.

Let us know what you think!

We’d love to hear your feedback, and if you spot anything odd do let me know so I can fix it.
