Day Trip with the fish

Today I went out with my family,We went to a lovely sea-life centre.One I had not been to before,We took Chibi Bean ( My daughter by the way.)She has never been to a sea-life centre before.So this was a great treat for us all.
We went to the sea life centre in St Andrews.a city near the coast and seaside .I took this as my chance to find some Kawaii creatures, I love all creatures big and small but I thought we would only have to come face to face with pretty little fish..... But NO (-A-') There was some really ugly looking ones !
We met some other creatures I was not expecting  too. (n.n)
What to see?
Okay then!

It's not just Hello Kitty that is Kawaii!

Like the title says, it's not just Hello Kitty that is Kawaii. There are lots of other cute characters out there too. Maybe there are too many to pick from. I think Hello Kitty will always be the one I favour best.
Maybe because she has fitted into every possible style and variety.
But the other characters that I personally adore are the likes of Choco Cat from Sanrio.
He reminds me of my very own cat (Leo-Cat). They are both pure black and have big cute loving eyes.


He is just so cute. I only have one Choco Cat plush that sits with all my Hello Kitty's.
(n.~)


This is my Choco Cat. This one you can dress up. I have him in a cute shirt and jeans with a leather jacket.
As well as Choco Cat, I also think that Rilakkuma from San-X is a loveable character.
I love how lazy-looking his expression can be with his cuteness. I would like to be like Rilakkuma and take some days as lazy days too. I never seem to stop!
;~;

Again, I only have one Rilakkuma. He sits with a few of my other plushies, like my anime plush of Sailor Moon, a few tiny Hello Kitty's, and Tare-Panda on a shelf.


The other cutie I wanted to show you, who also sits on the shelf with my other Kawaii friends, is
 Domo Kun. I've watched some of the cute Domo Kun TV shows.
He makes me laugh. There is something very cute about him. I spent a long time looking for him in the UK but finally found one I liked and wanted.
I got him in a very, very girly and sweet pink colour. He is normally brown. I don't have a good photo of him but here is an image. I have one like the pink one here but he wears heart-shaped glasses.

Is he not just the cutest-looking monster?!
(^_^)

I have my heart set on a getting another plush. His name is Gloomy Bear. He may not be everyone's idea of cute but I think him being pink helps make him look innocent.
He tends to forget he is a bear with sharp claws.
(o.0)


I've not yet found a nice one of him. Maybe I will be lucky and find a Kawaii push of him at an expo or a convention.
Do you have another Kawaii character that you adore?

Snowy Cute Hats

Hello everyone.
Oh wow, it's been a very snowy past few days up here in Scotland.
But even with the blizzard-like weather, snowfall and snowman building, I have been staying very cute and warm. I just have to show you that in all this snowy weather, it is easy to stay very cute.
Think hats, scarfs and gloves with a twist of Kawaii.
Let's look at cute hats. I love hats.
Especially cat hats.
 =^..^= meow!

I adore this cute Luna (from Sailor Moon) Hat! It is very cool! 


Fox Ears, anyone?



High street style pompom ear hat.


Hello Kitty style hats

Anime style cat hat.
As you can see, there are so many kinds of cute hats out there. It's just a case of looking out for them.
Sometimes the best time to get your winter hats is once the winter sales are on.
Hehe I do like the hats with silly faces!
But if you don't want a hat with a face, there are lots of cute animal-eared hats, from cats to pandas!
(^-^)
Not only can hats be so sweet and cute, they can be very trendy. Last year, there were so many animal-eared hats, too many to pick from!
Because I love cats so much, I wanted a cat-eared hat that I could wear without it looking too childish. So I went for a loose oversized beanie style hat with ears in a simple plain colour.
It is still Kawaii but very mature-looking.


It's not that noticeable that it's got ears on it but I know that they are there and that makes me feel very cute. It's like having a little secret. I have it in black and cream.
Kawaii!
(^__^)
The other idea I hope to be able to do this coming winter is get hold of a very warm cute coat.
I have seen some lolitas wear such coats and they look so pretty!
I would feel like a princess to have a coat like this and feel like a snow princess in the snow wearing it too.

It is the cutest coat I have ever laid eyes on!
( *o* )
I think I like the black more than the pink as it would go with any other colour or style.
Those bunny ears on the hood are just so cute and a nice touch, right?!
Even this one is just adorable in the photo below!


That's because it's got cat ears...hehe!
I think I need to invest in a very nice lolita coat.
*Nod, Nods*
What Kawaii winter things do you like to wear? Do you like to go out and enjoy the snow or would you rather stay in and keep cosy under a soft blanket?

Its about being Kawaii


Hello Kawaii Fans!

Did you know living in Scotland, UK is tough work for a Kawaii Lover like myself. I currently live in a town, it is a very pretty and you don't have to travel too far to get to the very nice woodland and countryside. I love spending time out in nature. It's very relaxing and peaceful. *Blissful* The downside to living here is that being Kawaii and looking for Kawaii things is a challenge. Even the nearest big city only has about one or two Kawaii-like shops. It is so unfair that I have to travel so far just for these few shops. The other thing is the prices. Everything in these shops is so expensive.

I have found the internet to be super effective when it comes to Kawaii shopping. Thanks to social media, I can link up with anime and manga conventions and J-fashion, which are a great resource for all things Kawaii.
