We have a YouTube channel where we posted a few videos about our office, work and products so far. Today we got our first subscriber! I know that’s nothing really special but I thought it’s a good occassion to mention our YouTube channel here on our blog. Here is the link to our YouTube channel: modes4u YouTube channel We also uploaded a video we took in Tokyo, Japan. We plan to take more movies of our products and our work and upload them on our channel. Please let us know if you have any suggestions what kind of videos you would like to see!

Expanding our warehouse space

We ordered some more shelves for our office so we can expand our warehouse space and stock more products. We totally ran out of space and had to get more shelves. I took some pictures to show how hard we worked today 😉

Before / After make up shows

We are using some pictures from Japanese catalogs with really cute looking girls on them. I know lots of people wonder, how they do their make up and how they can look so different than other Asian girls. Their eyes are super big like dolls, very long eye lashes, perfect skin, blonde hair, lots of eye make up, nice clothes and so on. My sister-in-law found 2 videos on YouTube for me to show you guys how these girls really look like and how to do this make up. The videos are from a Taiwanese TV show and is actually really mean. They show 2 girls with make up on pictures and then show how the girls look in real. Everyone makes fun of them when they reveal themselves and I think that’s really harsh. After that, the 2 girls show how they do their make up to look like on the pictures again. Enjoy!

Tip: with make up: 00:09 and 00:49, without make up: 02:18 and 4:25

Tip: posing for the camera: 03:50 and 04:45

New Category ‘New Products’

As we are getting so many new products every week, we decided to make a new category in our online shop called “New Products“. This category shows all products we got within the last 2 weeks and they are ordered by date. That means when you click into the category, the top item is the newest product we added to the shop. I hope this category helps our customers to get an overview of the latest products we have in our kawaii shop.

Magazine publishes our hairclips

I got an enquiry from a German magazine editor because they want to publish our cherry hairclips in their magazine. The magazine is a customer magazine for bank customers. Funnily, we are customers with that German bank too 😉 What a coincidence! We will get a copy of the magazine once it is printed. Here are the 2 pictures they got from us:

We finally got our first delivery of Cosmo fabrics from Japan! We are so excited, it was so hard to find those fabrics as they are made in Japan and we had to find the manufacturer first. We are now an official distributor for Cosmo fabrics! We placed an order right away, but only half of the order arrived today. The other half will arrive at the end of May. We got some fabrics with cute girls, Alice in Wonderland fabric, fabric with sweets and donuts and Paris themed fabric.
