Flower ring: Dorothy Perkins
Usamimi headband: Blogshop
Usamimi (or sometimes called usagi) headbands were a huge hit last year in Japan (and most parts of Asia). For some reason, the trend never really quite caught on here in the UK (and this is only based on my humble observations). However, recently, I've noticed that quite a few high street stores like New Look, H&M and Primark have started selling them. Even though the trend is a whole year late, at least it's in time for Spring/Summer 2011.
It is essentially a piece of cloth wrapped around a wire. Still, whoever thought of it is a genius because this allows the headband to be twisted and bended in all sorts of ways. The name loosely refers to "rabbit ears" because if you style it correctly, you're supposed to look like you have a pair of bunny ears. Mine's a bit too short so it was hard to create the rabbit ears. In any case, I don't think I can pull off the kawaii look.
You can also use it for an irregular braid, though it's a bit harder to do if your hair has lots of layers. I learned this from Bubzbeauty's tutorial.

P/S: Sorry about the awkward face-covering pose, but I didn't have any make up on. I hope my pretty nails and giant flower ring made it a bit better kekeke...
