Kawaii Clothes!

I've seen pictures of really cute Japanese clothes, but I never was able to find out which brand they were from, or where to buy them, besides through Facebook. After reading one of my favourite blogs, Lolita Charm, one of my favourite blogs (and the first blog I followed before making my own account!) I've found it after a long time of desperate searching. Thank you, Lolita Charm, for putting it up!

At one point, I thought, it could be rakuten, but I never found it. I love almost everything from that specific brand! (Yumetenbo)

The following pictures are from the princess section in Rakuten (Yumetenbo):

I love these so much!

Here's one from the Kid's Section! I didn't even know they had clothes like this for kids!

IT'S SO CUTE! (Cries)  There's a mall (Pacific Mall) about 45 minutes away from where I live that sells clothes similar to these. I know for certain that they sell clothes very similar to these (It's an Asian mall).

When I have a girl one day, I'm totally dressing her up in this stuff!

My Goals for 2011!

Now that my exams are done, I'm glad I can start working on blogs!

I began 2011 thinking that I wouldn't have any resolutions planned out. Later, I became inspired by Decoden, which began my list of goals!

1. Begin my first decoden project!
-I was inspired to begin decoden after researching on the internet. I already knew it existed long ago, but after seeing pictures of it again just recently, I really think that it could be something fun to do! I'm hoping to buy the materials soon!

Here's a picture of one, taken from Chiralicious' blog:

2. Attend anime conventions!
-If I don't have any major responsibilities on May 27th to the 29th, I'll be able to go to Anime North! If not, hopefully I'll be free on August 25th to the 28th for FanExpo. There is an anime component, but FanExpo combines Comics, Sci Fi, Horror, and Gaming, so it's not too concentrated on anime. I saw FanExpo coverage on tv last year, but they only concentrated on the Comics, and I didn't see any coverage on anime. Another anime convention that's coming up soon is the Toronto AnimeCon (March 19th to 20). From what I've read by bloggers online, there's not very many attendees, when compared to Anime North. I'm still curious to find out what they have in store.

Here's a couple of pictures that I took at Anime North 2010! (I was too scared to ask people for their pictures. It was my first time at an anime convention!)

3. Learn as much Japanese as possible!
-I'm thinking about buying a "Teach Yourself Japanese" book. My friend is a step ahead of me when it comes to Japanese learning resources. She bought herself a Japanese dictionary jusr a few months ago. I did think about doing that earlier, but I never got around to it. I spent my money on manga. :D

4. Make lots of friends!
-I love speaking to people about similar interests! I've made lots of friends on different social networking sites. One of them is OtakuZone.

5. Buy more manga!
- My friends' collections as of today are within range of 80 - 175+. My collection isn't even within that range! D: I think that by the end of this year, I should be able to reach 80, depending on how I spend, and how often I shop. I really want to complete a lot of my series too. There's a lot of gaps in between the numbers. My Vampire Knight collection so far is missing #4 and 5.  My Mixed Vegetables collection, however, only consists of #1 and 2. I have 7 more mangas to buy to complete the series!

6. Buy as many kawaii things as possible!
-I've been very successful with this one these past few years.

I made sure that these goals weren't too hard for me to keep this year. I definetly won't be struggling with the last two goals. I'll try my best to do them and write about them here whenever I can.

kawaiikawaiiyume is a blog where a kawaii-loving girl blurts out all the things that may not come out in real life that she wants to scream out to the world, where I seem more relaxed. To people who don't really know me, I seem like a quiet nerd covered in pink hovering over her notes in the front of the classroom, while my friends know me as a pink-kawaii-otaku-sanrio-lolita fashion loving explosion.

My likes and interests, as stated above, include:
  • Pink stuff
  • Anything kawaii
  • Manga and Anime
  • Sanrio
  • Lolita fashion
  • Hime Gyaru and Gyaru fashion 
  • Playing the piano
  • Jpop and Kpop (mostly Jpop)
These are the things this pink explosion will be writing about.

Without the above things, my life would be pretty much going to church, watching TLC, and school.

A little more about me:
  • I hope to be a Sweet Lolita sometime in the future, when I have more money, and I find a place where I can find ANGELIC PRETTY (favourite brand) and other brands! :D (I've already found one, but it's just a matter of the location being a bit far.)
  • I find Japanese culture to be the most interesting culture.
  • Because I'm a nerd and like to research, I bumped into Sweet Lolita during one of my research sessions. The first time, I thought it was cute and dismissed it, but the second time, I became more interested, and researched it even more deeper. That's when I started to take a liking to Classic Lolita, which later evolved into my liking of Sweet Lolita.
  • I like cosplay and lolita, but I prefer lolita. I've spent too much time just browsing through pictures, and finding as much as I can on the fashion! 
  • Sanrio is a big part of my life. This means that I buy anything Sanrio I can get my hands on. I grew up with cousins and friends who obsessed Hello Kitty, so it's had a great impact on me.
  • The first store me and my friends go to once we reach the mall is the Asian store full of cuteness (sadly retired last year!), or the manga section in the bookstore.
  • This is my first blog (not counting the one from my otakuzone account!) so please bear with me when I make my mistakes.
  • I love learning about cultures and languages! When I research things outside of schoolwork, this is one of the things I search for on the internet. I'm currently trying my best to learn Japanese, and trying to do the best I can with the French I learn in school. I know enough French to have a small conversation. 
  • I love making new friends who share the same interests! 

I picked this name because:
  1. kawaii yume and kawaii kawaii was already taken.
  2. kawaii is something that I live by, because it's a part of me. A teenager's bedroom reflects their personality. My bedroom happens to be full of kawaii items.
  3. It relflects what the blogs centres on, mostly kawaii things, otaku stuff, and anything Japanese-cute (SWEET LOLITA!!!)
  4. Yume was picked because I wanted the name to sound gentle, and childish sounding.
  5. I wanted people to know that it relates to cuteness. Specifically Japanese cuteness.
