How to Create a Kawaii Bathroom

Posted on June 20, 2017 by

I love to have some “spa time” as relaxation. The bathroom might even be one of my favourite places to hang around in. That’s why I like to decorate it with some small kawaii objects. They’re not only nice to look at, but will also come to good use. Here are some ideas to turn your bathroom into a cute place.

Sass&Belle kawaii bath mat

How about a cute cat bath mat from Sass&Belle? My cat loves to sleep or play on the bath mat, so it would match perfectly.

cat bath ball

Bath balls that contain a figurine are all the rage in Japan. They will not only give a nice colour and scent to your bath, but will also reveal a small item hidden inside. At J-List you can find a meow bath ball with a little cat toy.

Kirby kawaii bath ball

Kirby fans might like to treat themselves to a Kirby bath ball from Tokyo Otaku Mode.

Sumikko Gurashi bathroom towel

One of the easiest ways to add a touch of cute to your bathroom is by getting a printed bath towel. Shops like AmiAmi offer a wide range of character towels to choose from. I think that the Jinbe-san and Sumikko Gurashi towels are especially cute.

Rilakkuma toothbrush holder

You could also use some small kawaii containers or holders to store your beauty and care products. Artbox has a nice range of San-X bathroom products, such as this Rilakkuma toothbrush holder and storage bin.

What I Bought At London MCM Comic Con

Posted on June 19, 2017 by

I wasn’t as spend-happy this year at London MCM Comic Con, compared to last year when the tokidoki stall took all my money. I did make a few awesome purchases though.

Rilakkuma Panda Mini Clasp Purse

Most of my items were from ARTBOX who had a great selection as usual. I was looking for a new coin purse as my current one was looking very shabby. I loved this panda Rilakkuma purse and can’t decide which side I like best!

kawaii cat pass case

I also wanted a new pass case and had my eye on these cute kitty ones for a while so just decided to go for it.

kawaii bandages

kawaii plasters

These plasters caught my eye with their hilarious designs. They look so kawaii until you notice the one with the brutal shark attack!

rilakkuma ice cream light

This light up Rilakkuma ice cream was from the gashapon section and it’s really bright!

Neko Dango Plush

I was on the hunt for another Neko Dango plush to add to my growing collection so was pleased to find one at Something Kawaii.

kawaii cat purse

This kitty purse was really cute and they had quite a few different designs to choose from. You can see them all at Amazon Japan.

Kawaii backpack - Tokyo Toys

My fave purchase has to be my turquoise backpack from Tokyo Toys. It’s just perfect for displaying all my badges and you can customise it to make it entirely unique. Find out how to make one yourself.

Things To Make

Cute Cross Stitch & Embroidery Kits from The Make Arcade

Posted on June 16, 2017 by

I’ve been interested in trying out some cross stitch projects, so I was very happy when I ran across The Make Arcade on Etsy. The shop specializes in cross stitch kits, but also offers kits for embroidery and even accessories like brooches. Each kit comes with everything you need to complete the project except scissors, so there is no fussing with having the supplies you need for it. Here are a few of my favorite picks!

Sweet Dreams embroidery kit

The Sweet Dreams embroidery kit would make a great baby shower gift, but in all honesty it’s so cute it would make an excellent addition to any kawaii bedroom.

unicorn mini cross stitch kit

If you’re a lover of all things unicorn like I am, the unicorn mini cross stitch kit should be right up your alley. I’m definitely going to try this one out at some point!

penguin mini cross stitch kit

I also really adore penguins, so the penguin mini cross stitch kit caught my eye as well. It might only be June, but it would make a cute Christmas gift or ornament!

flamingo mini cross stitch kit

If winter is too far away for you to be thinking about penguins, there is a flamingo mini cross stitch kit perfect for a summer DIY or craft party.

donut pincushion kit

They also carry other varieties of kits, such as this cute donut pin cushion kit. This looks like a really simple project that would be excellent practice for complete beginners to sewing!

If you’re looking for a new kit to try out, be sure to give The Make Arcade a visit!

1980s Retro Kawaii Picks

Posted on June 15, 2017 by

June is my birthday month and it is stirring up so much childhood nostalgia. I grew up in the 1980s watching Saturday morning cartoons and collecting neon colored animal stickers. My picks below are a new take on what I loved as a kid and still love as an adult!

Em & Sprout Pee Wee and Chairry pin set

Em & Sprout’s Pee Wee and Chairry enamel pin set is something I recently bought myself! I loved watching Pee Wee’s Playhouse and thought that living there would be so cool!

light up Jem earrings

Jem made me want to have brightly colored hair, glitter makeup and rockin’ clothes. Those things are easier than ever to have today but her magical changing earrings are another story – until now! Finally light up Jem earrings for those who are truly outrageous!

Lisa Frank makeup brush

My love of animals started off at an early age thanks to Lisa Frank. Her bright colored kitties, puppies and bears made it on to everything I owned with her sticker line. Now I can get ready with her using a cruelty free makeup brush!

1980s sanrio organiser

I am horrible with organization. Maybe this little storage container featuring all of my favorite 1980s Sanrio characters could help me with my clutter?

Rainbow Brite Twink Sprite plush

Rainbow Brite’s Sprite friends had me envious! I wanted fluffy magical creatures to hang out with me. Maybe surrounding myself with a plushie or two will add some magic into my life!

Lydia Deetz Beetlejuice print

Saving the best for last is this Lydia Deetz print by Mizna Wada (I actually own it!). My sister and I watched Beetlejuice so many times as a kid I am surprised our VHS did not fall apart. Lydia still is true to my heart, my hobbies and my style!
