New Years Resolutions~

3 comments
First I want to wish everyone a very happy New Years Eve.
2011 is almost here, and boy, I am so excited for it!

In 2011, I get to finally graduate from highschool! I've been waiting so long, and I just can't wait any longer! ;A; I also turn 18 in 2011 so that means I can finally get a tattoo (woo hoo!)

I have lots and lots of resolutions, but I'll just post the ones fashion/beauty-related.
  • Get a tan. I'm aiming to be a gal, so I need one of these! It's hard for me to tan naturally, so I'm going to probably start using tanning cream.
  • Get pink circle lenses! I've been eyeing them all year, but have yet to order any. I already wear prescription contacts, and when it comes to pink circle lenses, I've only seen "piano" ones. I'll have to keep searching!
  • Build up my wardrobe. This pertains to both gyaru fashion & lolita fashion. I have a few lolita items now that I've started building up again (I did a style switch), but with gyaru... uhhh, I kinda haven't learned how to style it well for my body yet. xD;
  • Find the perfect petticoat. I sold my other petticoat to a friend since it couldn't hold the heavy fabric of my Antoinette Goblin jsk. So now~ I need to find the perfect petticoat that will give the dress enough poof without kill the petticoat.
  • Improve my nail art. I just recently started really practicing nail art, so I hope that by the end of 2011, I'll be pretttyyyy darn good at it. I mainly want to learn how to do animal print/florals. I'll be looking at quite a few tutorials, to say the least.
  • Start deco-ing! I want to deco my cellphone and camera but have absolutely no idea what to do. I hope I get some big inspiration soon, because I definitely want my items to be beautified!

What resolutions do you have for 2011? And did you fulfill any resolutions you had set for this year?
(For me I fulfilled at least one -- learning how to properly wear top & bottom false lashes!)

My Meta CL Honey Picnic set!

3 comments
Much to my amazement, I received my Meta Honey Picnic set today! I ordered it on the 27th so it only took 3 days total to get to me!


They mail it in a Meta bag taped to hell, so it's a battle to even get it open...
and what's inside?


Another bag! ~ooo~ Luckily the contents are actually inside this one, so no more bag-wars.

In my pack, I received
  • Honey Picnic Short Sleeve OP in mint! (♥♥♥)
  • Embroidery Cardigan in navy (I wanted the cream one...)
  • Flower & Heart Striped OTK socks in white x pink (again, wanted cream...)
  • 2 necklaces (dual-layer gold cross & heart; black heart with silver swan)




I nearly died when I saw that I received the mint OP -- it's exactly what I wanted!
I'll probably keep the socks and the gold necklace. I might keep the other necklace as well, but the cardigan -- it's gotta go. xD;

Anyone else order the Honey Picnic set? If you did, I'd love to know what you got (and maybe trade? xP)!

How unfair ;A;

3 comments

It's been over 120 years since my area of GA has had a "White Christmas". The weather stations were all saying that snow was like on Christmas (yay!). BUT! It didn't snow on Christmas! It snowed today instead! Even though there wasn't much snow, I feel like the weather just wanted to curse me since I was hoping so badly that I would finally have a White Christmas... ):

Now, on a different note, I need some help.

I finally got bottom lashes, but I have no clue how to put them on properly. They always end up pointing downward instead of out, and it looks drag queen-ish.
Can anyone provide me with nice tutorials that show how to properly apply bottom lashes?
Also, what lash glue/adhesive do you guys recommend? I need a new tube, plus my old kind was crappy.

New Nails!

4 comments


I tried doing leopard print nails earlier!
It was my first attempt, but I think they turned out pretty good. (:
I just chose random colours, and now I regret it a little since pink and yellow don't really go well together (to me).
I'll have to keep practicing in order to get it looking great cause as it's said "practice makes perfect!" ...god I'm so cheesy.
I plan on buying new nail polishes soon, so maybe I'll try a pastel version!

I celebrate both Christmas and Chanukah (my dad is Christian & my mom is Jewish), so my holidays get really busy and hectic.

Anywho~, I hope everyone has a lovely Christmas
& thank you so much for being my followers! I love you all!

Gothic & Lolita Bible 38 PICKS ★

2 comments


The newest Gothic & Lolita Bible is... a little lacking. It shows new releases and items like that, but there are no makeup tutorials!
Out of the whoooole thing, I only found 3 coords that I like.
  • The 1st is a Victorian Maiden jsk paired with lovely gloves and a cute hat. This coord looks mature and elegant, and also shows how I feel classic lolita should be displayed.
  • The 2nd coord is not the style I usually like. OTT sweet with pink all over! All the rabbit details & accessories are just too adorable that I honestly couldn't resist...
  • Finally, the last coord I liked from this G&LB is from the street snaps. The girl actually made brown x black look nice together! (I think the two don't really go well together normally). The Innocent World jsk is simple yet still eye-drawing. Plus, she's wearing a bonnet, so the coord instantly caught my eye! Go bonnets! xD

Scans are available on multiple sites, but I got mine from laurita.
Please be sure to buy the magazine if it is available near you!

Annabelle's visit + Polyvore coord! ♥

4 comments
Awww, so cute!

Annabelle got to visit today!
She's litterbox trained and everything, so I no longer had to worry about that. She likes to hide though... a lot.
She hates loud noises so it's honestly hard to have her over. One of the guys renting out a room (my dad has rooms in our basement up for rent) is SO LOUD, like he does not know how to shut the hell up. So annoying. When he wasn't here for a few hours, Annabelle was fine -- wandering around and being curious like kittens are. But the moment he got back and started blabbing loudly, she hid. It happened the first time she was here as well. She'll hide either under the bed, behind the couch, or wherever she can get herself. It saddens me that some dumb guy's loud mouth makes my kitty want to be antisocial. I honestly don't know how this crap will work out.

It doesn't want to center the image, but oh well. Here's a rough idea of a simple coord using my Antoinette Goblin jsk. It's difficult to find bordeaux items, so I stuck with cream. Any suggestions on other coords that could possibly be done using this jsk? (:



P.S. I am so ready to get a tattoo. Come on February 9!

Professor Layton & the Unwound Future

3 comments
I took my Goverment exam today; I studied my butt off, so it was actually super easy!
Since it's been exam week, everyone gets out around 1. I took that as an opportunity to finally finish Professor Layton 3 for DS!

Oh my goodness, the game is so confusing... and reveals a lot about Professor Layton's past.
We learn that his real name is Hershel (well, this was probably said in the other games, but I don't remember...). He actually had a girlfriend named Claire (oh hoho, Professor Layton truly was a gentleman (; ), and she's the one who gave him his lovely top hat!
The game gets really interesting with the storyline as it includes a huge love triangle! There's also some Future!Luke action (to the surprise of "Little Luke"). Don Paolo even makes another appearance and we find out why he became so "evil".
If you've never played a Proffesor Layton layton, I'm gonna let you know now that these games are all about puzzles. If you like puzzles, and confusing but intriguing story-lines, this game is for you! :D

There's a lot of other mind-boggling things that happen in the game, so spoilerrrrs!
Professor Layton's girlfriend "died" during an experiment of time travel. She really did travel 10 years into the future though! Professor Layton actually meets her in the future without realizing it's her, then she later admits to being Claire. Her molecular structure is messed up from the time travel though, so she gets sent back to 10 years ago, and ends up really dying. It's a tearjerker for sure. ;A;
Also, Don Paolo is actually one of Layton's old classmates! His real name is Paul, and he also loved Claire. He witnessed Claire confessing to Layton and went nuts... so that's why he considers Professor Layton his "arch-nemesis".


But really, play the game! It's such a great one, and it will definitely hold the interest of puzzle lovers! (:

Introducing~: Annabelle!

0 comments

Sadly she didn't want to come out... ):

Yesterday I got my new kitty! Originally I wanted a boy, but in the end, I decided on getting a girl. I've named her Annabelle (it sounds so regal!)
She's only 9 months old, so she's still a kitten, and she's also oh so fluffy! ♥♥

We still need to... potty train her, but hopefully it will be done by the end of the week! She also has a respiratory infection, but with medicine that will be cleared up too. I really can't wait until she is all better (and potty trained), so then I can play with her!

I'm too excited, everything is all set up for her, and we've welcomed her nicely into our home. I love my new furry friend. ((:


PS: I added a new poll -- please vote!

I want W♥C! ;0; + my makeup! ★

2 comments
W♥C updated their webshop, and oh gosh there are so many cute items!
They're also releasing LPs soon -- I want to start actually dressing gyaru... SO I WANT ONE REALLY BAD! O:

I'm really short though (5'0)... and pale (with a hard time tanning) so idk what style of gyaru would look good on me.
Any suggestions?

Well anywho~ onto my W♥C wishlist!
It seems a lot of other girls wanted these items too since some are sold out! xD
(I think this will help with getting suggestions!)

Tops


Bottoms

So cute! ♥

Accessories




Is it obviously that I like yellow/orange and leopard? xD;

★★★★★
Also! I usually wear lighter looking makeup, so today I decided to try a little darker style!

I tried to do the smokey-eye look, and I think it turned out okay.
I definitely still need practice though.

{Review} Lemontree11 - Honey Bunka Bear & ring review

4 comments
(quarter for size reference~)
Oli (lemontree11) now has a blog solely for her crafts, and recently sold her Bunka Bears & Bunka Bunnies. The Bunka Bear only cost 11 USD shipped in the US (or 13 USD shipped Internationally) so I reserved one, and if you were someone who reserved, you got a free gift!

The choices of ribbon for the Bunka Bears (I consider it her dress) were gold/cream or silver/lavender. I chose the gold/cream (obviously). It is absolutely adorable with it's sweet little face! The bear has a hairclip fixture and a brooch fixture as well, so you can wear it 2 different ways. It's really durable! I wore it to school as a hair clip, and even though so many people kept touching it (and one of my friends even squished it with a hug...), it stayed perfectly in place!

The free gift I receieved was a sweet little cupcake ring. The colours of it go well with the Bunka Bear, and it features a cute little star as well. (: The only problem I had with the ring is that the ringbase was hot-glued on. I barely bumped it against a drawer, and the entire cupcake part came off... I superglued the ringbase back on, so maybe it'll fare better now!

All in all, Oli makes such sweet items, so if you like the way the Bunka Bear and ring look, you should check out her blog!

Score
Bunka Bear (gold/cream)
Durability ★★★★
Cost ★★★★★
Appearance ★★★★★ - Absolutely adorable!!

Cupcake Ring
Durability ★★★★
Cost ★★★★★
Appearance ★★★★★


And Happy Lolita Day to all the lovely lolitas out there!
