Kawaii Hair Accessories

Posted on March 16, 2018 by

Kawaii hair accessories are one of the easiest ways to add some cute to your look, whether it’s for cosplay or every day. Here’s some fun ones to try.

Kawaii hair accessories - plush pastel cats

Candy Zombies makes the cutest hair clips – or hair puffs! These cats are my favourite, and available in so many fun colours, but there’s also bunnies, stars, bats and more.

Kawaii hair accessories pastel glitter bow

If you’re going to wear a bow on your head, you may as well get the biggest, sparkliest one around. This giant glitter pastel rainbow headbow is made to order by Roxie Sweetheart for a bargain £20. Theres other fun fabrics available too including holographic.

Kawaii hair accessories fluffy cat ears

Cat ears are always a cute easy look for cosplay and Halloween. I love this fluffy headband from Cherry Bon Bon, complete with confetti sprinkles and a pink bow.

Kawaii hair accessories - Le Cocone star hairband

For a bit of cosmic sparkle, head to Tokyo Otaku Mode. These Le coconne falling star hair bands are so kawaii with glitter, stars and ribbons. They also have a great range of 6%DOKIDOKI  hair accessories and bows.

Kawaii hair accessories Sanrio

JapanLA have a super sweet range of Sanrio character hair ties featuring Hello Kitty and friends. Perfect for adding a touch of cuteness to long hair.

Stay Calm or Unleash Your Rage With Aggretsuko

Posted on March 15, 2018 by

Are you hooked on Sanrio’s newest character Aggretsuko – the little office worker red panda that deals with her daily trials with black metal karaoke? I am and here are my picks that show off her calm and aggressive side.

If you happen to live near a Target, hop in and pick up a squishy. There are a few designs to choose from and they are selling out fast.

Otherwise, you can order online from Dream in Plastic who have all 8 cute expressions in stock.

Aggretsuko red panda ita bag

Be a show off with this roomy clear vinyl ita bag from Sanrio. It even includes a pin and detachable plush keychain.

Aggretsuko red panda t-shirt

This ‘Tomorrow is a new day’ t-shirt from Hot Topic would be at home within my band t-shirt collection. It looks like actual concert swag!

Or maybe you want a design a little more peaceful? This double-sided shirt shows off both sides of Aggretsuko’s personality.

Keep calm and wipe on? Sanrio even have a stack of Aggretsuko toilet paper!

Cute Characters, Super Cute Sites

Kawaii Anime To Watch On Crunchyroll

Posted on March 14, 2018 by

Looking for something cute to watch? Why not check out all the kawaii anime streaming on Crunchyroll! Here’s a few shows from my queue that you might have missed.

If you haven’t watched the legendary Mitchiri Neko cat march video recently, then go ahead and enjoy yourself first. Then be very excited that there’s a Mitchiri Neko anime series! It includes lots more musical cats, plus you can learn some new Japanese words. There’s ten episodes available now with new ones every Monday.

Kawaii Anime on Crunchyroll - Sanrio Boys

Sanrio Boys is a high school story but with boys who love Sanrio characters! It could easily have just been a cute fluffy show but it has a great story and should be a must-watch for any guys who love kawaii and feel a bit left out sometimes. There’s ten episodes to watch now and new ones on Saturdays.

Kawaii Anime on Crunchyroll - Working Buddies!

I need to watch Working Buddies! soon as it’s all about cats! Two cat friends work at a different job each episode so it’s a cute way to learn more about Japanese businesses. It sounds a bit silly but I really find anime helpful when I visit Japan. They always feature a  lot of everyday things and it makes it easier to know how everything works. The first episode of Working Buddies! is in a convenience store and you’ll definitely visit a lot of those if you go to Japan.

Kawaii Anime on Crunchyroll - Bananya

There’s good stuff in the archives too. We’ve featured Bananya plush and products here many times but you might not know the characters are from an anime. Bananya is one of the more insane shows out there and I find it hilarious. The episodes are only 3 minutes long so you can watch all 13 pretty quickly.

You can watch all these shows on Crunchyroll. Most episodes are free to watch, either in full or as a sample, but they have ads and you have to wait a week or two for new episodes. Premium accounts start at £4.99 a month to watch shows as soon as they’re released without ads, plus new manga too. There’s a 14 day free trial so you can give it a go before you spend any money.

What cute shows are you watching at the moment? Share them in the comments so I can add them to my queue.

Most Wanted: Cute Decole Dehumidifier

Posted on March 13, 2018 by

I’ve collected quite some Decole kitchenware and decorations over the years. Looking at them always brings a smile to my face.

I love it when they can actually be used, such as my Decole magnets and mugs. Lately I spotted these cute Decole dehumidifiers that I can certainly put to good use.

They come in several shapes and sizes, ranging from animals to cacti. Surprisingly – being a cat person – the Decole sleeping dog dehumidifier is my favorite.

From what I came to understand you can use them in humid areas or smelly places. Inside the mascot there’s Silica Gel that absorbs moisture. When the mascot has done its job you can warm it in the microwave to use it again, which makes this ceramic pet eco-friendly.

The Decole Karatto Mascots are for sale at Strapya World and Tokyo Otaku Mode. Both shops are the best places to look for cute Decole items!

Easter Bunny Jewellery by Pony People x I Love Crafty

Posted on March 12, 2018 by

If you love bunnies and pastel colours, check out the new limited edition Easter Bunny jewellery collection from Pony People and I Love Crafty!

I’m not sure there’s anything cuter than chubby bunnies with pom pom tails! The collection includes brooches, necklaces and earrings, all in colourful pastels that are perfect for springtime.

The brooches are definitely my favourite, though it’s too difficult to pick a colour. The packaging is so cute too – you get a free sticker and Easter egg with every purchase.

I kind of wish I had pierced ears so I could wear these earrings. I love the tiny pom poms.

As with all their collaborations, the Easter Bunny jewellery is already selling out fast so you’ll have to be quick. These necklaces are already gone but hopefully they’ll make some more. You can follow I Love Crafty and Pony People on Instagram for updates.
