Super Cute Kawaii on Pinterest

Super Cute Kawaii Pinterest

It’s been long overdue but there is now a dedicated Super Cute Kawaii account on Pinterest! Previously, it was just a board on my personal account because someone already took the sckawaii username and isn’t even using it (grr!). There’s nothing we can do about that so we’ve gone with wearesckawaii instead.

Super Cute Kawaii Pinterest

I copied over all the pins from the old board and now we can have lots of different boards so you can either follow them all or just the ones you’re interested in. There’s plenty to browse through already and we’ll start sharing some favourites from around the web too. The old board will no longer be updated so please come and follow us (and I don’t mind if you unfollow my personal account!).

If Pinterest isn’t for you, here’s where else you can find us. We try to post unique content on each platform so you get something different.

Instagram

Our current favourite where we share sneak peeks of review items, kawaii shop snaps and events coverage. We also post pics and videos on Stories too, which disappear after 24 hours. Follow SCK on Instagram

Twitter

I try to retweet a few things every day from indie makers, big brands, shops and bloggers with new products, offers, giveaways, videos and more. It’s also a great place to ask a question as I’m usually on it most of the day. Follow SCK on Twitter

Tumblr

I’m a big fan or Tumblr and the SCK page gets two posts a day: a reminder of the day’s blog post and something cute from accounts we love. Follow SCK on Tumblr

Facebook

It’s hard to justify time spent on Facebook as the algorithm means most of you don’t even see our posts. If you don’t see them often either click More under our cover image and Add to Favourites or make sure to like and comment on our posts so that Facebook will show you more. Follow SCK on Facebook

Newsletter

And don’t forget our new email newsletter! The first one will go out later this month and will have more fun finds from the SCK team as well as our top posts, hidden gems from the archives and cute DIYs. Sign up here!

Things To Make

Decorate Your Planner With Doodles by Sarah

Posted on August 11, 2017 by

Whether you’re looking for new ways to customize your planner, or to improve your kawaii doodle skills, Doodles by Sarah has a bunch of options to help you out.

Her planner icon doodles is one of my favorite reference videos for planning since she demonstrates a wide variety of popular planner icons. These help greatly reduce the need for stickers if you’re aiming for a simpler or inexpensive layout.

I love her simple food doodles video, but she’s made tutorials on a lot of different subjects, such as animals, plants, and daily items.

While using lots of materials to decorate your planner can be part of the fun, it can also be expensive sometimes. Sarah’s Doodle on Your Planner video series works as great inspiration for different ways to decorate any style of planner without the use of anything other than a pen. You can find the full playlist here.

If you live the bullet journal life, you might find her Plan with Me uploads very helpful! They offer tons of cute layout ideas and options to experiment with. I love her sticky note themed layout from the July 2017 video!

For anyone interested in integrating various font styles into their planner, Sarah’s simple lettering techniques cover a few methods and ideas to help get you started.

If you’re too short on time to decorate your planner, you also have the option of purchasing printables on her Etsy shop to help streamline the planning process!

Cute Characters

Hot Topic x Build a Bear

Posted on August 10, 2017 by

Hot Topic and Build a Bear have teamed up for a cute collaboration called Furry and Fierce. The line is divided between the two stores and includes plushies and clothing for both you and the bear you can build in store.

Hot Topic x Build a Bear

The bear has pink hair, fun tattoos and matching body jewelry and is ready to be made and taken home at Build a Bear stores. I have done this process before – it takes about 30 minutes and is fun.

Hot Topic x Build a Bear

The plush has lots of cute clothing that you can also buy in your size at Hot Topic. From dresses wth bear and bones print to 90s style grunge chic flannel.

Hot Topic x Build a Bear

If you can’t make it to a Build a Bear store to create your own bear, Hot Topic also sell a smaller readymade plush who is super cuddly. Both stores tend to sell out fast so get these items soon before they’re all gone.

Events, Look What I've Got!

What We Bought At Hyper Japan

Posted on August 9, 2017 by

One last post from Hyper Japan as we have to show you some of the cutest things we bought! There were so many stalls selling kawaii products that we could easily have spent ten times as much but I think we did pretty well.

Marceline’s Top Buys

Kurebayashi enamel pin

One thing I knew I wanted to buy was the Kurebayashi enamel pin from her collaboration with Dreamy Bows. It was being launched at Hyper Japan so I knew it would be a nice souvenir to remind me of the event. It’s quite a large pin and so kawaii with lots of sparkly glitter! The Kurebayashi line is now available online so check it out on Dreamy Bows.

Hyper Japan enamel pins

I added a few more enamel pins to my collection too! I’ve had my eye on the cute foodie pins at Cakes With Faces for a while and picked up the Cherry Cats and Hedgehog Nigiri. It was really hard to decide what to buy from inki-Drop but this lime crab pin was a must.

ARTBOX sumikko gurashi plush

Sometimes you just NEED something, but you can’t really explain why. When Nicolette showed me this Sumikko Gurashi Tapioca plush dressed as a bumblebee it went straight in my basket. It’s just too cute and has little wings on the back too. I’ve never seen this range before and can’t find anything about it online so perhaps it’s new. Keep an eye on the ARTBOX shop and hopefully they’ll add some soon.

pocky kitkat hyper japan

Tofu Cute had a huge range of Japanese candy so it was great to pick up some new things. I missed out on buying raspberry KitKats when I was in Japan and they’re really nice. The Pocky has a really thick and creamy layer of chocolate and might be my new favourite!

Nicolette’s Top Buys

inki-drop Toxika plush

I was so excited to finally see inki-Drop‘s cute plushies in person and had to bring home an adorable Toxika squid. Definitely my fave purchase of the day.

jinbe san ARTBOX

Jinbe San is one of my fave characters and I was happy to see lots of new items at the ARTBOX stand. This plate is perfect to cheer me up in the morning!

hyper japan kawaii plush

I also got a plush Jinbe San keyring from ARTBOX and a tiny sweet snow bunny from Tofu Cute.

6%DOKIDOKI bracelet

I loved browsing through all the colourful accessories at Dreamy Bows and got myself a pastel star bracelet by 6%DOKIDOKI. So kawaii!
