Little Twin Stars Bag! ^^

Our spending has been quite limited most of this year with us saving for our holiday, and now that we can spend again it's been a chance to catch up on some item's we've been dying to buy! One item I have just had to get is the super Kawaii Little Twin Stars bag that I spotted several months ago:

I originally spotted the bag in a Chrissa Sparkles video when she visited Puroland and I'm super happy that I have managed to get it!

The bag is a pink star with lilac handles and is covered in Kiki & Lala on a super kawaii horse! This is such a gorgeous bag and of really high quality! The top of the star has a yellow star and ribbon in the shape of a bow.

Even the side of the bag has a super kawaii touch with gold embroidery of Little Twin Stars and the zipper has gold stars hanging from them!

I got this straight from a seller in Japan and super happy it got here unscathed! I can't wait to see what else Puroland has when we get there!

Catch you later Kawaiisters!! ^^

Brand Review - Suckered Apparel

With our trip to Japan getting closer, my hunt for the most Kawaii outfits I can find has found some super cute sellers! Suckered Apparel is a brand I found on Instagram two weeks ago and when I saw someone I follow wearing one of their tops I just had to check them out!

Suckered Apparel are a brand based in Austrailia, and one of the first things I have to tell you is how quick my items arrived! It took two weeks from ordering to arriving and it was a completely smooth transaction! Now, onto my items.

The top I originally spotted on Instagram was their Pixel Scout T-shirt!

You're probably already oooooooing over this one, as I know that was pretty much my reaction when I saw it! Its covered in varying sized pixelated Sailor Moon Scouts on a pink t-shirt! I'm so impressed with the quality of this item, the top itself it really soft and the print is of such high quality. The reverse of the top is also covered in Scouts, with the brand name Suckered across the back:

I absolutely love this top and it's already been packed for my holiday! The other top I bought was their Cry Baby T-shirt:

This is another Sailor Moon top covered in Artemis, Tsukino Usagi (Sailor Moon), Sailor Moon's brooch and tiara and the words KAWAII and Sailor Moon. This is SUPER KAWAIIIIIII!!! ^^ It's on the same pink top as the first so it's also super soft and high quality print and really brightly coloured! I can't wait to wear this in Japan! ^^

Again, this also has the brand name on the back:

This may or may not bother you if you were buying these tops but I don't mind at all! I'll probably also be wearing a backpack when I wear them anyway so you may not even see this part. 

Suckered Apparrel do a range of tops, some kawaii and some quite quirky, they also do some designs as vest and crop tops if that's more your style! They have a super cute website and are also on several social media sites, like Instagram, so make sure you go check them out! 

I have had a super smooth experience as a customer, the tops are super cute, super high quality and well worth the price! They arrived super quick and smoothly. And if you sign up to their email list you can receive a 10% off code! 

Catch you later Kawaiisters!! ^^

There's also a special range of merchandise to celebrate the event - there's a super Kawaii hugging plush Pikachu:

And for those true Pokéfans - a female version tail!

You can also get an event hooded t-shirt to show your love of Pikachu:

Seller Review - The Fuzzballs

Hello everybody! It's Mr, back with another takeover!  This time I'm going to tell you all about a super Kawaii brand I discovered called The Fuzzballs!

The Fuzzballs is an online comic (check out the Fuzzballs Tumblr) and recently they launched a crowdfunding campaign to get a range of t shirts, necklaces and keyrings off the ground.  I supported the campaign as I really liked the designs and thought they'd look great for a casual Kawaii look for Pinkuiro Pixie on our trip to Tokyo. Sadly... the campaign wasn't successful ><

But not to worry - the guy behind the Fuzzballs (Hello Marc! *waves if you see this*) didn't give up and set up an Etsy store to sell Fuzzballs items! He was even generous enough to offer the crowdfunding backers a special discount...well, how could I miss that opportunity?!

I picked three t shirts and three necklaces featuring the super cute kitties and bunnies from the Fuzzballs!  The shirts are made in America and feature direct to shirt printing - these aren't cheapy iron-on transfers like some sellers use!  You can even pick from a wide range of shirt colours to make them tie in with your favourite accessories and outfits!  The shirts are good quality soft cotton and feel really nice!

The first shirt I chose was the Will Work 4 Treats design on blue:

Fuzzcat Whisky is so cute with its little sign, who could resist that!

The second design I chose was the Tigers Are Not Cupcakes shirt on purple:

Fuzztiger Timmy might not be a cupcake, but he's definitely as cute as one! ^^

The final shirt I chose was the Eat Cookies design on pink:

Pinkuiro Pixie loves bunny rabbits, so I knew she'd love this Fuzzbunny Ollie design!

I also chose three necklaces to add to my order, these are handmade in the UK:

The designs I chose included Fuzzbunny Pika eating a carrot, Fuzzcat Whisky nomming pizza and Fuzzbunny Ollie eating more cookies!  There are loads more designs available in the Etsy store too.

You can get all the necklace designs as keyrings as well and Marc was super thoughtful and included a keyring for me in the Eat Cookies design ^^

The items came really quickly and Marc was great at keeping me informed about my order's progress along the way.

I really recommend you check out the Fuzzballs Etsy store - the Fuzzballs are super Kawaii and the items are really good quality!

Catch you later Kawaiisters!! ^^ (hope I said that right!! ^^; )

Seller Review - KandyKeepers

Mr and I recently had an anniversary and he surprised me with a super Kawaii bag from KandyKeepers on Etsy!

And yes - it really is made from upcycled J-Candy packaging and specially selected fabric to complement the Kawaii rainbow colours of the Kracie Popin' Cookin' candy kit.  Rainbow colours are perfect for Decora kawaiisters, so this is definitely my style! Check out this close up of the design:

The bag is really well made, with strong neat stitching, and a fabric lining in a super Kawaii colourful pattern.

I really loved the bag, but I was in for a surprise... inside there was a small purse made from an upcycled Kracie Nerunerunerune packet and some J-Candy! <3

The purse is perfect to hold your spare change, and the design continues on the reverse:

It's so cute and as you can see on the stitching on this zip, it has the same level of care and attention paid to it as the bag:

I absolutely love what KandyKeepers is doing, it's so unique, colourful, Kawaii and is made so well!

Mr said that the ordering and delivery was super smooth and that the seller comes highly recommended.  He also enjoyed the J-Candy! ^^

Make sure you check out KandyKeepers' store!

Catch you later Kawaiisters!! ^^

Brand Review - Swimmer

One shop I'm looking forward to visiting again in Tokyo is Swimmer which we visited in Laforet Harajuku.  Swimmer does lots of different kawaii items including accessories, bags, stationery and items for the home.  Their styles include cute forest animals (like deers and rabbits), lolita style wonderland items and even gaming themed accessories!

They don't ship overseas >< but Mr found someone selling a few items here in the UK and he surprised me with a super Kawaii gameboy inspired pouch!

Isn't it just totally cute?! The screen features a pixel art bunny knight (and he's level 100!!) and the button detailing is stitched on so won't rub off.  The zip features a pixel mushroom charm to add to the cuteness!

The pouch is a nice size to hold a few essentials - a purse, lipstick, phone - and on the back is a space for a Suica/Pasmo/Oyster/smart card:

The pouch also includes a springy attachment with a clasp so you can easily reach the turnstiles to pay for your train journey without losing it ^^

I really like the pouch and it'll fit right in with my decora style!

Catch you later Kawaiisters!! ^^
