One of the newest Japanese styles to me, along with Shironuri, that I’m completely and utterly head-over-heels in love with is Cult Party Kei. Not too dissimilar from the English style that was in fashion a few years back, ‘Shabby Chic’, Cult Party Kei is all about the layering! Put some lace on that and WHAM-BAM, you have a Cult Party influence. The layering is not just an aesthetic, in this chilly season, it’s very practical and will keep you snug and toasty even if Jack Frost is successfully punching everyone in the face. Common motifs are religious iconography, crosses in particular – RED crosses specially. You bangin’ if you have a red cross.
Cult Party Kei is really a floaty, mysterious, sweet way of dressing. I love it because you can throw a bit of goth into it and you still look very feminine rather than RARRRGH LOOK AT MY SKULLS. There’s also a slap-dash of Fairy Kei in there, and Shironuri makeup looks INCREDIBLE in CPK. It’s simple to start – white or cream base and then build, build, build! The idea is to create a whimsical image, like a fairytale.
So here’s a collection of my all-time favourite CPK inspiration specifically for winter – gotta bundle it up, BABY IT’S COOOOOOOLD OUTSIDE!
And finally, finish that look off with some CPK makeup. Pink under the cheeks, and delicate eye makeup complete your look. The tutorial by The Chokelate is perfect to get you started!
Let’s see your CPK co-ords for this winter, my fluffballs of great justice and fashion! Also, get those questions in and get chatting fashion!!

Cute Bento boxes
Cute bento… how many times have I wanted to have someone wake me up in the morning to hand me a gorgeously hand-crafted bento lunchbox, so I can run out of the house kawaii-style shouting ‘ITTE KIMASU!’ at the top of my lungs REGARDLESS if I’m understood or not? Yep, not even once. THAT WILL NEVER STOP MY DREAMS. TT_TT
But every so often I love to daydream and stare at photos and live the aforementioned scene over and over in my head with various elements added. Toast hanging from my mouth, killer bees chasing me, being followed by my Magical Mascot Character who talks but I haven’t discovered that just yet but will do once I get to school and some kind of demon attacks my entire class, at which point I power up and spin around naked while new clothes appear and doom glitter is rained down upon said demon, and yet I must retain my anonymity, and so magical mascot makes everyone forget with a swish of the MAGIC TAIL and then I eat my amazing cute bento with Hello Kitty chopsticks and a Tee-hee thrown in for good measure.
So here are some of my favourite cute bentos and a brilliant tutorial on making your own kawaii bento box!
Those pandas… HELP ME O.O THOSE PANDAS! And kitty-onigiri… I feel the kawaii squish monster descending upon me. CAN I EAT THEM ALL YET??

EEEK! …A BLOG!!
I’ve had this blog a long time, uhm-ing and ah-ing over which direction to take it, what I was doing at the time, and then I’d inevitably get distracted by either cookies or glitter and then -WHAM BAM- still no start of blog in sight….
Well no more, procrastination brain! Today we start a new kawaii-filled journey! With chocolate sprinkles and stuff on it too, with a side of strawberry ice-cream TO FINISH IT OFF.
Wait, this isn’t about a finish – this is about a start! So to bless this first post (and hopefully to punch my procrastination brain into a semblence of a routine) I shall bless it with the power of TAMAGO NIGIRI CAT.
