I love the Kawaii aesthetic. The look is fun and playful and often involves pink, pastel, and other bright colors. The overall style of kawaii aims to add a bright, joyful, and cute vibe to your life with lively patterns, colors, and charming novelty themes centered around food, animals, childhood nostalgia, and Japanese pop culture. 

Since I mainly work from home, I can decorate my desk with lots of cute and colorful kawaii accessories to my heart’s content, and feel happy and creative in my workspace!
