Other neocities sites:

Shooting Stars - my younger brother's site! He likes to code things and helped make my site accessible and added those cute sheep on the bottom of the index page!

Soft Heart Clinic - a positive, mental health-focused site with a pastel/medical aesthetic!

Nostalgic - a site in the style of early 2000's sites! I especially like the goodies, it reminds me of stuff you'd put in your status messages or livejournal profiles... the resources are really great and varied too, from graphics to Japanese language to art tutorials and references!!

cloud world - a sweet little personal site that's like a cute, clickable adventure through pastel pixels!!

Straw Berry Basket - a cute personal site about Lolita fashion that also offers some nice graphics (please noooo read the rules!).

The Digital Diarist - personal site! I love the self-care and self-keeping page, hadn't heard that distinction made in name before. There's also stories to listen to (I like the fairy tale best, East of the Sun & West of the Moon).

Dollhouse Garden - my fellow old shoujo-loving friend's newly-opened site! The vintage aesthetics are quite charming so far! There's links to games and colouring pages, right now, so worth checking out for fun diversions. ^^

Other websites (fandom, graphics, cute things):

Shining Sunflower - old anime/manga fan pages and scans from the webmaster's collection of coloring pages!

ultimate memole gallery -A very sweet Italian site dedicated to Little Memole with a plot summary and image gallery.

We All Live in a Pokemon World... - (this website is defunct and offline, this is a saved copy from the internet archive!) this website was started by an educator named Kimberly who, when Pokemon was banned from schools, researched it herself and found much to love about the anime's kinder, more ideal world where humans and non-human creatures live and work together respectfully.
I especially love the listing of specific episodes with brief summaries to illustrate each point!

BonBonBunny - a very cute site with varied content on cute Japanese fashion subcultures, affordable brands, DIY accessories, tips on decor, and other things! Girlish fun and informative.
