~Cute DS games~

I feel That video games can really help you feel cute- or is that just me?

Hey there- I'm sick like usual but I'm really trying to kick back into things, so I'm just going to hop in. I'm going to recommend a few of my favourite DS and 3DS games to help yo
u feel cute.

If you guys like this post at all I might make a top 10 DS-3DS game list because there are quite a few that I like that don't fit this cute category.

Kira Kira Pop Princess (DS)

You get a mix of idols, fashion combined in this cute handheld rhythm game. Its been made for young audience but I only got into it a few years ago. Its so vibrant and cute and I'm so glad I stumbled across this gem in a charity shop. I've seen it for £3 on ebay so if you find it I couldn't recommend enough to buy this game.

Animal crossing: New Leaf (3DS)

The DS Prequel Wild world was my first animal crossing game and cultivated my love for the series but I'll suggest new leaf over all because of the new fun things you can do, the new characters ,and the ability to customise your town. I've found such beautiful towns online and its such an inspirational fun game that lets you take a step into this calm little animal town life.

Animal crossing: Happy home designer (3DS)

Another animal crossing game but I'm adding this because of its difference to the other games. In happy home designer you design homes for people and you can design interiors for schools, hospitals etc. If you loves the creative design aspect from new leaf you'll have so much fun with this game.

Harvest moon DS (DS)

Harvest moon is one of my favourite franchises but I must confess I'm only a fan of their pixel games which is sadly too few for me. I endlessly play Harvest Moon DS (Yes thats its name) and its female counter part Harvest Moon Cute which was an american and Japanese release. The came is so whimsical and makes me feel truly at ease and at home. you can also connect the game with the prequel GBA game to unlock more stories- As well as the prequel game Friends of mineral town and more friends of mineral town being super fun.

Hatsune Miku and future stars: Project mirai (3DS)
I downloaded the demo- excited to see a European release of a cute vocaloid rhythm game and was not disappointed. I was happy to see Senbonzakura as a song in the game. My sister got the game for Christmas and its so so so much fun- the fact you can keep a cute little vocaloid game with you and play on your DS makes me so happy- any vocaloid fan will love this.

New style boutique 2 (3DS)

I was very taken a back when I got this game, I never expected to love it this much. its actually so much fun and theres always something to do and I've played it non stop for almost 3 months now. you can design your own clothes (no surprise that my clothes logo is an egg), cute and design hair, create your own make up and become a make up designer, a run way model, a photo shoot model, and obviously a boutique owner.

This game is so jam pack- the side characters all have their own likes and personality, and its such a wonderful game, I couldn't recommend anything more than this game. It truly brightened and made me happy when I was away from home and without a laptop. It brought this bright and fun reality to me again especially when I was far from my vibrant wardrobe.

New style boutique is oddly enough my favourite 3DS game right now, and honestly just talking about it now means I will shortly be playing it.

I hope you guys enjoyed this, Honestly these games always brighten up my day and make me feel so cute. I hope you can sit down and play any of these on a rough day. and if you
have your own cute 3DS or phone game recommendations then let me know so I can check them out and find some real gems.

~Purikura: Cute photo stickers~

Who doesn't enjoy making everything cute!? Unbearable amounts of glitter, hearts scattered around, and pastel colours a plenty. Purikura has captured the hearts of many.

From the booths to the phone applications, people enjoy the ability to customize their images in cute decor and add a new level of sweetness to their photographs.

China town had a few 'booths' many which were simple fun sticker booths, but the Photo sticker club in London actually had one old but official Japanese booth. It was super fun inside and its really cute! I'm awful with technology and Japanese though so I usually leave the decorating and usage of the machine to others~

Sadly in the autumn of 2015 PhotoSticker closed down, but I've still had so many wonderful times there!

I love to collect cute bits and bobs and collage,well about everything! I love to fill things to the brim with cuteness. Over the years my walls have been heavily collage filled, with every bit and bob I've found cute and could get my hands on. But despite this my purikura remained un-touched. That was till recently I redid my room and found a cute way to display my purikura's.

Even though London no longer has their booth I secretly hope Purikura will have a shining come back in the UK.

In the mean time, access to purikura styled phone applications have slowly become popular over the last few years with the rise of smart phones. Anyone from all over the world can experience purikura with these apps.

My top 'Purikura' Phone apps!

Now I love talking a cute picture every know and then, actually within the last year of actually getting phones that worked and allowed me to get apps I've been non stop snapping!

Over this time I've found what apps work best and which ones I stick with! I'll explain about the apps I love and how to get the best out of them!~


DecoPic is distinctively the cutest of my selections today, it just screams pastel cuteness. If you log in daily you get 100 candy and every now and then they'll update with some new cute stickers which you can buy with the candy you stack up!


This app has the most professional vibe. It has really realistic add ons and has an over all cool vibe too it opposed to the overly cute Deco pic! If you want to edit your images with quality and a slight grown up vibe then this is the app too use!


Snapee has a similar vibe to DecoP
ic but is a bit weirder to use. Although it isn't just an editing app but a photo posting site very similar to Instagram. You can also get stickers designed by japanese designers and over all their stickers are more unique but sometimes its hard to find uses for them. Like DecoPic you sign in daily for points to buy stickers and can gain points also by uploading images as well as liking others.

(Also it seems as though the android version has a different logo)


Aillis is both the best and worst for me. Its so versatile and can be used in so many different ways. With transparent images from the web you can collage your images with anything you'd like. Where as this feature is amazing and one of the reasons I stick with Aillis as my main photo editor, it also has a lack of decent stickers available without purchase. Despite that though it offers the best range in filters too which is super handy for beginning to edit and photo and to finish it off with some small details.

I will usually switch between two apps per photo- usually DecoPic and Aillis due to their amazing wide range of mediums to use.

I hope this post was informative and fun even if it was a bit wordy. I'm going to be trying super hard to post once every month now as a minimum for both my blog and channel.
