Kawaii Kitchen Inspiration + Shopping List! ♡

Kawaii Kitchen Inspiration + Shopping List! ♡

hello

Hey cutie! How are you? Today I wanted to write a short and sweet blog post about a project I’m currently obsessed with – my kitchen! It all started with me just emptying out the cutlery drawer, then doing a massive clearout, and before you know it I’m endlessly scrolling online and basically redoing the whole place! Oops. But, in my defence, the kitchen has always been a place I wanted to work on and I feel so excited because it’s finally happening (especially now that my hubby has said I could make our kitchen kawaii AF). 

What’s really annoying though is that I’m incredibly impatient; once I have an idea in mind I have to do it STRAIGHT AWAY. Honestly. The first night after I did that massive clearout I couldn’t sleep a wink because I kept thinking about all of the stuff I wanted to do and was constantly messaging my friends lol whoops. Anyway, gosh, I’m rambling now, but here I’ll be sharing the items that I’m currently waiting to arrive and some kawaii kitchen inspiration!

Lockdown is… Kind of lonely. I keep caving in and buying unnecessary things just so that I have something to look forward to, but I really do miss hanging out with my friends. Luckily Molang sent me a lil’ plushie to keep me company, and while it’s not the same as having bubble tea with my favourites, oh my gosh I love it so much! It is so squishy and soft and I haven’t stopped cuddling it since. I decided to do an outfit inspired by this kawaii character (after having so much fun doing a Cinnamoroll-inspired one last year).

How to Style a Checkered Dress in 5 Ways

How to Style a Checkered Dress in 5 Ways

I have to admit, I wasn’t a huge fan of checkered dresses. For some reason I thought that they were only reserved for school uniforms but you know that saying that “it’ll feel so right when you’ve found The One”? Well, I found mine hanging on a clothes rail in New Look and I haven’t looked back since. And seeing Cher from Clueless rocking a checkered suit cemented my love for this print! Here’s how to style a checkered dress in 5 different ways!

Disclaimer: The clothes I wear aren’t necessarily new so I have decided not to link where I have bought my clothes because they won’t exist anymore. So take these pics as more of a visual guide on how to put outfits together!

Pusheen the Boat Out: A Trip to ARTBOX Cafe ‘Pusheen Snack Parlour’!

Pusheen the Boat Out: A Trip to ARTBOX Cafe ‘Pusheen Snack Parlour’!

I cannot tell you how excited I was to go to the ARTBOX cafe in Brighton which, I can say with confidence, is the cutest cafe in the UK. The owners had recently announced that ARTBOX Cafe would transform into a themed cafe every three months, kicking off with “Pusheen Snack Parlour” as their first theme where – you guessed it – Pusheen the Cat is the star of the show. Here’s a little peak into our trip to the Pusheen Snack Parlour!

Please note: as of February 2020, the Pusheen Snack Parlour has now been changed (as ARTBOX Cafe changes their theme every few months).

Cute Ways to Transform Your Desk Space (+ Giveaway!)

Cute Ways to Transform Your Desk Space (+ Giveaway!)

cute desk, kawaii desk accessories, kawaii box review

I have never been known to have a tidy desk. You’d usually find it drowned under masses of paper, sketchpads, books, with my phone somewhere amongst the mess. It wasn’t until I moved in with my love that I wanted to put more of an effort into making my desk space really cute, and I try to do the same at work. So I’ve put together a list of cute ways to transform your desk space if you’re a lil’ bit stuck on what to do.

I’ll Take You To The Candy Shop… Japan Candy Box Review!

I’ll Take You To The Candy Shop… Japan Candy Box Review!

Japanese sweet, Japan Candy Box, yummy candy

One of the best things about Japan are the sweets, so when Blippo’s Japan Candy Box* for September arrived at my doorstep I was bursting with excitement. I was good, though, and didn’t immediately open it but waited for the weekend to arrive before I gently lifted up the lid to take a peek inside and boy there was a lot of candy. There was no way I could eat all of it! So I asked my other half to help me out and we spent the afternoon chomping on all of these sweet goodies.

Chilling with Hello Kitty – My Trip to Sanrio Puroland!

Chilling with Hello Kitty – My Trip to Sanrio Puroland!

I first fell in love with Hello Kitty when I was around 8 years old, sporting a little red and white t-shirt with her face emblazoned against it. But like all things do, I grew out of love with it, until it reappeared in my late teens and has stuck around ever since. So you can only imagine my excitement when I found myself walking down the pathway to Sanrio Puroland, the home of all of the Sanrio characters that you could ever think of. We followed all of the incredibly obvious signs on where to go (e.g. the Hello Kitty banners, Sanrio town map, Pompompurin signs at the train station… You couldn’t really miss it) and after taking the typical snap of me looking like an excitable puppy in front of Puroland, we went in. Cinnamoroll was the star of the show as it was his 15th anniversary and everything was so on point – from the staff to the benches to the decor in general.

Kawaii Box Review and Giveaway!

“Life is like a box of kawaii goodies… You never know what you gonna’ get” is what sprung to mind when Kawaii Box landed on my doorstep. A couple of weeks prior to this event, they had reached out to me to do a sponsored review for them, and how could I resist? Get cute stuff in the post? Why not! Fast forward to the time when it came to unravelling the goodies, I can happily say that I am completely satisfied. The service was amazing, the box was cute, the stuff in the box was also cute… Need I say more?
