A keen eye and a collector of all things Kawaii and Koolios ♥

Takashi Murakami, the contemporary Japanese artist who marked his name in the art and fashion world with the collaboration established between his pop culture art and the highly sought after luxury brands, Louis Vuitton. 
Murakami works in both fine arts media, such as painting, as well as digital and commercial media in art, music and fashion It is evident in his work that he appropriates popular themes from mass media and pop culture, especially pop artist Andy Warhol.
 
My TK Superflat figurine museum range. A fan can't just have one, a collection must consist of ALL or nothing, don't you think? Imported from Japan
 Warped and drawn in by his art. These precious gems need a display cabinet in their own right

Lollilop Kpop Colour top Out the box

♥  Welcome to my world, your world, how the world should be; A healthy RDA of pantone brights and colourful hues, which is required to keep the smiles and laughter in balance, agree?

Precious finds in Madame Moi's boudior

This weekend was all about the Lo..lo..lo..lollipop LOCOness! Part of my rainbow coloured, culture clashing, colour smashing outfit. Cosmetics, lustful must-haves to make a statement. Ooh not forgetting to mention the accessories which will be available very soon. *Countdown* for the Madame Moi online boutique.

Jelly Pong Pong Taffy lovely for the lips and cheeks FTW . A mix of bronzer and rose colours, highlight the right angles of your cheeks and don't overdo it. You don't want to leave your abode looking as though your cheeks have been attacked by a transvestite's blusher broom! Keep it pretty.

Eye ♥ Candy


It's all about layering and adding your personality to what you wear to create a look that makes you who you are. Don't be afraid to try new things. That dress or top, it might not have hanger appeal but it could work on you, so go for it, if you don't try, you'll never know. Work it
Any excuse to dress up (again *ahem*) the theme is 'Lollipop' I'm greedy and want all flavas (as you can see!) Striking a pose under pressure..hmmm..not sure if I've quite cracked it, needs some work, I laugh at myself! ^_^
Hair crimped, backcombed, twisted, tied up  and topped off with a diamont√© clip to look bowtastical fantastical. So Kawaii cutesy.
Minnie Mouse meets Lady Gaga, eat your heart out!
Dressed for the Occassion
Oh Yesh, how I love to colour clash
Vibrant mod eclecticsm Combining the Union Jack with the rainbow and features of the Highland tartan, apples, apple green, lime green and electric blue, golds, silvers, blings the rings!
The Fuchsia lipstick 320  Sophie-Ellis Bextor-esque Fuchsia lippeh (lipstick) ♥ I HEARTS
 
 The Korean pop hit tune titled Lollipop by Bigbang feat. 2ne1 
was the theme behind the Kpop night held at Area Club. Girls and boys looking fresh, street and colours vibrant as they come, dressed to impress wand on point, styled to a tee. The queue full of eager young wons anxious to take u their battles on the dancefloor and tear it apart.
 
Chupa Chups, nomnomnoms, *Sugar rushes* a favourite weekend request of mine when I am out. Also coinsides with the theme. The Kpop team certainly have something right.The music bouncin', drinks are flowin' and the crowd gone wild with excitement, busting their moves to the exclusive remixes of the Kpop resident DJs.
For the fans of Korean Pop check out this site Kpopmusic

Lovin' these yellow specs. My homage to Big Bang. Their video is so fresh!
