Kawaii.i Fashion Contest: My kawaii personal style VOTE FOR ME!

Kawaii.i Fashion Contest: My kawaii personal style VOTE FOR ME!

SO YOU GUYS, I KINDA DID A THING.

I entered the Kawaii international “My personal kawaii style” contest to be one of the next kawaii leaders. With literally like hours to go until the cut off deadline lol. Better late than never though right? This is the picture I entered with:

Vote for OhSoKawaiiXoxo in the My personal kawaii style contest

Vote for OhSoKawaiiXoxo

Do you like it? This is one of the pictures my darling husband took of me as we were shopping our way through Tokyo. I believe it was taken in Shibuya’s WC store just after I bought that jumper. I was struggling to decide what picture to use that would best represent “My personal Kawaii style” because for me its such a broad subject that changes a lot depending on my mood and what I happen to be doing on that day. I went with this one because I thought it was the best representation of my “everyday” kind of kawaii style. My work keeps me on my feet almost always, and I work a lot. So when I am out and about I like to be kawaii AND comfortable.

I like platform sneakers because they make me just that little bit taller (I’m on 5’2) and the right ones are super comfy to run around in all day. I think I own that pleated skirt in every colour of the rainbow, so its one of my go to garments, plus I can never go past some knee-high socks.

I think this is the best representation of my style at the moment, and I am really glad I got the chance to enter the contest. If you like my style too, I would really appreciate it if you would send a vote my way. Since I chose to enter right at the very last-minute (like a big dummy) I am quite behind on the public vote.

If you do want to vote for me, Thanks! But make sure you listen up now, because voting can be a little bit tricksy. First of all, you need to click on the link below to open up the woo-box page with my picture on it.

This link right here! Click on me!

Then you wan to look down the bottom of the blank white bit tot he right. you should see three round buttons. The first two will enable you to share my picture on Facebook, and Twitter. You don’t have to do this, although it would be greatly appreciated if you would con your friends into sending me a vote as well 😛 The button that is most important is the thumbs up on the right. Your going to want to click on that. But wait! You’re not done yet. They couldn’t possibly make it that easy 😛 When you click on the thumbs up, a little blue box saying “Like” is going to pop up. You need to make sure you click on that little guy to make your vote count. Then that’s it, your done!

You have now earned all of my gratitude and thanks. That was easy! But seriously, I do really appreciate the time you have spent reading through this post and humoring me as I am being a little ridiculous.

One last time… vote for OhSoKawaiiXoxo to be a Kawaii Leader!

 

Btw, I have totally entered this comp before, a few years ago. The blog post about it is here. Do you think I have levelled up or nah?

Much love guys, and don’t forget to tell your friends!

Hello there friends!

Today I have a super cute pastel kawaii outfit to share with you all 🙂

Last weekend I had the privilege of being invited to the commitment ceremony of two of our dear friends from dancing and the lolita community here in Adelaide. It was a beautiful ceremony on their families farm with a giant and gorgeous gum tree as their back drop. They told us to wear something nice, but that there was really no restrictions on what we could or should wear. I wanted to make sure I was representing the lolita side of our friendship (there was lots of other dancers invited) without going to OTT Lolita. They also suggested we wear something comfortable since the event would be held in a paddock!

Outfit Rundown

Shoes: Bait Footware

Stockings: Bought from a friend

Dress: Melonhopper

Cardigan: Target

Accessories: Headbow from Angelic Pretty’s Holy Lantern collection, Brand whore pin from Star Glazed Delights, Most Embarrassing Behaviour Pin from Milk Ribbon.

Having recently redyed my hair pink again, I felt like such a pastel princess in this outfit. I adore mixing pinks and purples together. I think it makes for a very dreamy and cute outfit.

Adelaide’s first every Harajuku Walk!

Adelaide’s first every Harajuku Walk!

Well I must say, Saturday was the saturday-ist saturday I have had in some time! Full of cute things, time with my hubby, getting excited about our Japan trip and of course, making some lovely new friends at the Harajuku SA Harajuku Walk!

Before I go into details on my super busy day, lets have a talk about the outfit. Since I knew I was going to the first ever Adelaide Harajuku walk later that afternoon, I decided I would kawaii up for the whole day, and just put a little more umph into it than I do on my usual day to day basis.

Kawaii outfit run down from the bottom up!

Pink bow bodyline heels, which are super cute and have a chunky heel which makes them easy to walk around in for long periods of time. Sailor moon kitty stockings that I actually had completely forgotten I owned until I was cleaning out my wardrobes the other day. Pink cakes and macaroons skirt, which has been well loved. Giant pink novelty bow belt. Cute ruffle sleeved brand t-shirt from milk, which I later added a blue cardigan to for extra colour. Also not pictured here: Mt beloved blue/purple holographic backpack from smiggle that I carry almost everywhere these days!

Kawaii make up look of the day

 

I have never been a huge fan of mismatched hair colour and brows, so for me pink brows are a must, especially when trying to be extra adorable. To get this look I used a generic pink liquid lip colour I got off ebay, and used it like I would an eyebrow pomade. Works like a charm!

On my eyes I have a few different shaded from my too faced chocolate bon bons pallet, with a light purple cream eye shadow from 3ina on my lids. My eyeliner wings were done super quickly by using my medium sized vamp stamp (I’ll be brave enough to try he large one of these days!), and my lashes I did nothing to (yes I said nothing!) as I had a set of eye lash extensions installed the day before at Le Lash Beautique. All of that sounds a lot I know, but I was pleasantly surprised by how quick and easy it was to put on thanks to my new products.

Foundation as always is DermaBlend pro, which helps me to flawlessly cover up my rosacea followed by their setting powder. Highlighter is the pink shiny one from lime crimes opals highlight pallet, cheeks are a pink (the name of which i currently cannot remember) from too faceds love blush collection. Then on my lips I have “Koala” from NYX, which is quickly becoming my favourite!

Accessories!

You may have noticed, but I kinda have a thing for big pink bows! Todays accessories, that i was silly enough to forget to put on for my outfit shot because I was too busy taking this photo lol. I had two ink bows in my hair, one in each pig tail. Some colourful heart bracelets, because you can never have too much candy. Three of my favourite rings – Sparkly heart, AP milky planet ice cream and a sparkly star. Shiny heart pearl necklace, which I adore (can ou believe i got it in the kids section at louvisa?!). Purple heart shaped shades to keep the sun out of my eyes, and my giant bow belt that I purchased at AVcon.

Breakfast adventures with Ye Olde Husband and the little floof

I have been on night shift literally alllllllll weekend, so I got home from work at 8am that morning and jumped back into bed for a little more sleep. We got up shortly after because we had a fair amount to do that day before I had to go back to work. First we were off to the post office to get our passport photos taken, and then straight to the RAA to have our international drivers licences issued! We have organised to go on a go karting tour of Tokyo, its going to be so freaking cool. Riccardo was silly enough to leave his actual licence at home, so he will have to go do his another day after work. Silly boy, lucky I was driving!

Next we headed off to go on a cute little breakfast date together at the Queen Street cafe. I absolutely adore that place, the food is amazing and the street has such a great vibe to it. We found this great art piece on a shed door near the cafe, so of course I had to get an outfit shot in front of it. Bella is such a good poser for Riccardo. I swear every time I point a camera at her she does the dog version of rolling her eyes at me.

The cafe is very dog friendly in their outdoor seated section, so we love to take Bella with us when we go out for breakfast. She is such a friendly pup (well, doggo, she is 11yo) that every one wants to cuddle and pat her. Which of course she doesnt mind. She just laps up the attention. After breakfast we usually take Bella for a nice walk , which is exactly what we did!

After our little walk, I dropped Riccardo and Bella off home and headed into town solo for…

Adelaide’s very first Harajuku walk!

I was super excited for this, having seen countless video’s and photos of the ones held in other cities I really wanted to go to one. This one was being held by a newly formed group called Harajuku SA, which is a Facebook group I had been added to a few weeks earlier by one of my friends. She wasn’t going to the meet today however, so I was a little nervous to be going on my own. Turns out, that I didn’t need to be worried about it at all, as everyone was so kind and friendly. The meet ended up being less of a walk, and more of a hang out in the park together thing which was still pretty cool, because I got to have chats with some super cool people. Oh, and a power ranger stole my phone. No I’m not kidding lol

But don’t just take my word for it, check out my vlog of the event, and if you are an Adelaide local, be sure to join the group and come along to the next one!

Love Love! <3

Bella the little Floof, the most Kawaii puppy EVER!

Bella the little Floof, the most Kawaii puppy EVER!

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!

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.

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 🙂

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 😉

Outfit of the day: Kawaii Ice cream Girl

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.
