💘 2017-2018 Kawaii Fukubukuro Roundup 💘


I've been hunting the internet (aka lots of Twitter scrolling) for the cutest fukubukuro coming out this New Year!
A Fukubukuro is a Japanese yearly tradition where you can get brand items at a heavily reduced price. The only drawback is that usually the items are all a mystery. More recently, brands have been making items specifically for these lucky packs, but most brands still produce blind bags or contain mystery items,
They're all kinds of J-fashion, mainly girly & cute street fashion brands.
I'll be focusing on the online packs, since a lot of my readers live outside of Japan 💜

☆ INTERVIEW ♡ HARAJUKU KIDZ JUNNYAN☆



In July I asked everyone for their questions for Junnyan, the Harajuku Kidz King! You'll probably recognise him from street snaps and KERA magazine. He organises the monthly Harajuku Fashion Walk and is always doing his best to keep the Harajuku fashion communities active. He was very excited to hear everyone's questions!♡

*Note: Junnyan requested for the questions to be sent in English for him to answer in English. Recently he has been studying and wanted to test himself - he did an amazing job and I only had to edit a few for ease of reading♪

~How to purchase~

The Fancy Surprise Homepage
The homepage is easy to navigate once you understand the categories on the left sidebar. Here is a translation for ease of use!

Once you've picked your items, click "Add to cart" on the item page. 

If you're buying clothing, you can pick the colour and size.

The colour/size options chart
A size guide - note that they use flat measurements!

At The Checkout...

When inputting your address, you can just insert the whole thing into Address Line One - Leave the postcode section blank, since it only accepts Japanese postcodes.

Input it like this: 12 Something Street, City, County/State/Prefecture, Postcode, Country


Click the option at the bottom of the drop-down box - this says "Overseas"
Once you've entered everything, click the orange button to continue. The next page will show the postage options. Since we're ordering from outside of Japan we can only use the last option which is Airmail.
This option is cheaper than EMS and faster than SAL!
You will be shown how much your postage costs around here. You can decide if you're okay with it and continue!

You can now pick your payment option - I'm picking PayPal! 

After you click continue, it'll confirm your order before redirecting you to PayPal. It'll be in Japanese until you log in, but it's easy enough to work out.

Once you have entered your details and confirmed, you will see a final confirmation screen:


And... you're done!

☀Fairy Kei coordinating in Summer - How to Survive the Heat #1☀


Fairy kei = Layers = Hot = Impossible to wear in summer?
...or so is the equation most of us think about when we imagine wearing fairy kei in anything over 25 degrees celcius. But the truth is, fairy kei isn't really about layers.

 It's about the impression of layers.

With that, let's delve into the first part of my summer series - How to wear a cute, layered coord without melting!

✝️♡ Yumekawaii Motifs ♡✝️


Following on from my post on fairy kei motifs, I thought this time we could look at yumekawaii motifs! As mentioned before, yumekawa is an "aesthetic" more than an actual style. This means a lot of these motifs cross over into fairy kei territory too!
