ootd-the-most-kawaii-puppy-ever

I would like to officially introduce, my fur baby Bella. She is a Maltese poodle cross, and will be turning ten in a few months. She has been my faithful companion since I was 19, and goes just about everywhere with me, including work! She was previously working as a therapy dog for our disabled clients on a day options program, but since she has been getting older and slowing down (and mummy getting promoted into head office!) she now spends her days napping on a pillow under my desk or sitting on my lap.

This post is part outfit post, part introduction and part ad 😛 This is my baby girl Bella, posing in her christmas outfit by the Christmas tree! I am a big fan of putting her in adorable outfits, and occasionally I share the photo’s with the world. In these photo’s she is wearing a super cute pink tutu, some matching pink bows and a pearl and diamontie necklace that I got her for Christmas. She was happy to wear them, but was way more interested in the green squeaky Christmas bone that came in her presents as well.

She is such a cute little girl, and after all my friends saw her in her flower girl dress at my wedding I was told she should have her own instagram account so they could see more of Bella being adorable on a daily basis 😛

So, without further ado, I give you Bella’s own instagram account @Bellathelittlefloof! If you need a daily fix a fluffy and adorable, we have you covered. Go give her page a follow!

Kawaii Space Princess 1

This outfit you probably recognize from my page header! I just loved this look so much I had to use it. I had never put little buns in my hair before, but  thought they just looked so cute! This outfit wasn’t for anything in particular, although I think I re did it to wear to work at some point I loved it that much. I wanted to be a kawaii pastel space princess, and this is what I came up with 😛

I just love love love how cute this dress is, and it is made from quite thick material, so although it is quite short, it is still rather warm. Its so soft and comfy to wear too! When I look at it, the first thing that comes to mind is the song “Sugar Sugar” by baby bash. This outfit makes me feel just a little bit sweet and a little bit naughty too.

Earings: Pink bows with a pearl – Rose Wholesale

Necklace: Pink pearls with a pink sparkly heart – Louvisa

The common theme for these two outfits is the pink ribbon in my hair! I really can’t stand having hair in my face, especially when I am working or dancing, which is why you will quite often see me with it pulled back. I have let my fringe grow out quite long, so I can do cute pin curls in it and what have you, and am quite a fan of pulling the rest back of my face with a cute ribbon 🙂

Outfit breakdown:

Jacket: cute pink and short sleeved – found in a thrift store in Melbourne

Top: White, with black tubing and a small peter pan collar – Found in a thrift store in Adelaide

Jeans: White high waisted – Factory

I know it is not very often you see me in fact not wearing pink, but I happen to be a big fan of pastel blues as well! This is just another casual outfit I put together for work. The weather was not to hot and not to cold, so I could get away with just a cardigan. I have been a real fan of wearing cute socks with my Jelly shoes lately as well. There is nothing I hate more than having super adorable socks on, and the no one can see them because of your shoes. This way I get the best of both worlds!

Gosh, considering I have been on holidays for so long, I was sooo unorganized for Neko Nation! (Post on the event to follow!) I think it was just because I had been feeling so sick for the few days leading up to it, that I hadn’t bothered to specifically plan for it.

Lucky for me, I have a ridiculously stuffed wardrobe and was able to pull something super kawaii together for the night!

Make Up

I was going for a bit of a magical girl look with this outfit, so I kept my whole eye area quite light with a white shimmer. Then on the lids I added a light pink and darkened it as I reached the edge of my eye. Then I covered both my lid and the area under my eye in fine silver glitter.

For eye liner, I lined the whole top of my eye finishing for a wing, and then continued under my ey until about half way. I hate wearing lower false lashes, so actually painted extra lashes on underneath with the eye liner. I then finished the whole look off by adding some super long curly lashes, and penciling in my eyebrows with a light brown colour to try match the wig a little.

As always, I went with hot pink lipstick, or the matte Lime Crime variety 😉

ouitfit of the day kawaii-ice-cream-girl

It has been so super hot in Adelaide lately, that my outfits have needed to cover less and less. It doesn’t seem to matter how hot it is though, I always feel weird without a cardigan or something to cover my shoulders.

kawaii Ice cream girl 6

I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I work in a very air conditioned building, and although it may be stupid hot outside, sometimes it can feel like a freezer inside. Plus, I burn in the sun super easy so it’s always nice to be a little bit covered.

Hair and make up

Being such a hot day, I decided to have my hair up. There is no cuter way in my mind that to little pig tail buns with a bow on either side!

My make up is done in my usual fashion, with a simple black winged eye liner and mascara. Finished of with my favorite hot pink line crime lipstick.

This super bright and colourful outfit I put together for my families yearly “Pudding day!”.

For those that don’t know, pudding day is a yearly tradition my family has. We all get together at my parents house and together we make our Christmas pudding for Christmas day, and help my parents put up their Christmas tree. it was a particularly nice day, so I went for a super bright colours look.

I have decided to take a big step, and have entered this years competition to become the next Kawaii Leader for Kawaii International!

The theme this year was “Kawaii Dolly” and I had so many idea’s for it, I just couldn’t wait to get started! I did the whole photo shoot by myself, from the hair, make up and outfit, even the photography I did using the timer on my phone and a tripod. I am super excited to be involved, and I hope to do well and become one of the finalists 🙂

Since today is the first day of voting, I thought I would share with you all some of my answers for the application, starting with which photo’s I chose to use. It was such a hard choice as I took so many! But in the end I chose this one as my full length photo:

I am a big fan of the colour pink, and I also just love to collect cute things. As you can see from the background, I have a rather large collection of adorable stuffed toys, and when it came to idea’s for this theme, I thought what better than to try to blend in and be one of my toys?

The Lolita cupcake silhouette is perfect for doing just this in my opinion, as the beautiful bell shape made from a dress and a petticoat helps to make me look like an oversized doll that could be standing on a pedestal.

The print I decided to wear is my Cotton Candy Shop JSK from Angelic pretty, as it is covered in cute bears and bunnies, and of course is a lovely shade of pink! Not to mention, it is also one of my favourite prints!

To break up all of the pink, and to help me look more like a toy, I am also wearing my purple bunny jacket from Angelic Pretty. The hood is just so fluffy, and the ears that are attached help to make this look just a little bit more toy-like.

For accessories, I am wearing the JSK’s matching over the knee socks, with some chunky purple high-heeled shoes.

Kawaii international kawaii dolly contest miss venusfury of oh so kawaii 2

On my head I have several different sized bows, the main head bow being from baby the stars shine bright. Two smaller pink and purple bows help to hold my fringe off my face and is finished with a pink dangling star clip from 6% Doki Doki.

For my make up, I decided to use bold colours that would stand out and be a little over the top. This is because most dolls you see these days have completely overstated make up, which I think has worked fantastically with this look. Eye shadow tones of light pink, purple and dark pink, finished with a heavy liner along with long bold lashes, silver glitter and some face gems. High pink blush and hot pink lipstick finishes off this look.

Over all, I am so pleased with how this outfit turned out! I feel super kawaii and adorable, an as though you could shrink me and put me on the shelf and I would fit in just like magic!

What Does Kawaii Mean to you?

To me, Kawaii is far more than just a word. To me it is everything. A fashion, a way of thinking, a lifestyle, a state of being. It’s a way to express yourself and share who you want to be with the world. It is a form of simple happiness and joy that never runs out, that you can carry around in your heart like your own little brand of unlimited cuteness to share with the world. The day I decided to stop listening to the thoughts of others and to live the kawaii life I chose was one of the happiest days of my life, it was so freeing. Kawaii is my brand of happiness.

How can you spread Kawaii Culture?

I always endeavor to share the kawaii culture in every way I possibly can!

When I am out in the public eye, I have always thought that the best way to lead is by example. That if one person see’s me somewhere, weather it is online or in real life, and that helps them gain the courage to enter a kawaii fashion, or be brave enough to stand up and be who they want to be, then I am doing my job right.

When online, I am forever posting cute snaps of outfits, talking about new releases or where to buy that cute blouse, sharing my experiences of Lolita meets I go to and generally sharing my lifestyle with anyone that is interested. To share a culture, the best way is to keep the lines of communication open so it is easy for other people who might be interested to know what is out there. I do this by posting on every single social networking media I can get my hands on, because the more the Kawaii culture is put out there, the easier it is to find.

Kawaii international kawaii dolly contest miss venusfury of oh so kawaii 4

I am always very open about my lifestyle and the things I love, and am always happy to talk to anyone who might have questions on how to kawaiify their lifestyle. To share all the knowledge I have and to be fun, open, friendly and welcoming I think is the best way to spread the kawaii culture!

This was probably a tad bit over the top for work, but I did it anyway 😛 Spring is well and truly here, and the need for skirts is becoming stronger and stronger. I’m also a sucker for pastels and these skirts are super comfortable to get around in. I’d also seen a lot of picture popping up on my tumblr of adorable girls with their hair in pig tail buns. I just had to try it 😛

Oh man, I am so in love with this suit jacket! I came across it by chance in an opshop I wandered into when looking for the lolita’s, and I just had to own it. It was quite cheap, but the colour is fantastic and the silk just feels divine. Plus, it is quite businessy, so I can totally wear it to work 🙂 I think it has a really nice suit feel to it, even when wore with jeans and sneakers 😛
