[Tutorial]: Simple Hime hairstyle


★ Hot curlers (large x4) ★
★ Medium or large barrel curling iron ★
★ Teasing comb ★
★ Bobbypins or barrette ★
★ Whatever accessories you want ★

please ignore the derp faces throughout this... xD;
Separate center section of hair and then separate that into a top and bottom. Insert large hot curler at the base of the hair under each section. Also insert under chosen side sections. (optional; it gives more volume though!)
Leave in for up to 10 minutes.
{alternate view}

After removing the curlers, your hair will look like a bumpy mess. xD
Take the areas where the bumps are and tease them like crazy! It will be poofing around everywhere. Pin your now attained bouffant at the back with bobbypins or a barrette. (I forgot to take a picture of it pinned back...)

Now, curl the rest of your hair. I chose a barrel (or sausage) curl.
{One side done}

Fancy up your hair with whatever accessories you have chosen. I chose a hot-pink floral headband! (I feel like floral items suit me best. ♥)

Now you can achieve an elegant (and so easy!) hime hairstyle in less than an hour!

Short nails can be cute too!


I just got my first job! Woo! Sadly, my employer says I cannot have long nails... so I had to file mine way way down. ;A;
But! It's helped me realize that short nails can be cute, too!
There isn't as much room to do designs or add deco objects, but simple designs are still just as cute as on long nails. ♥

I made mine just a simple lavender gradient --

I also found these pictures of adorable zebra print tips and beautiful lacy nails! I want to try them!

Also! Expect to see my giveaway posted on Monday or Tuesday! (:

Ange Rin Doll ♥


Ageha model Rin has decided to follow the trend of producing her own make-up line! She has named it Ange Rin Doll.
The make-up line currently includes:
  • 3 styles of false eyelashes
  • 2 eyeliners
  • 2 brow mascaras
  • lipgloss
  • kurogami (for "raising" the cheeks?)
  • 2 colours of powerpierce (supposely slims the face by making it look less puffy?)

Video shows her current products, her shoot for the product packagings, and teenagers trying out the products.
Right now, the products are only available through Japanese shopping channels, but hopefully they'll be available for oversees sometime soon!

Happy Valentine's Day + makeup/hair/outfit shot


It's the day for love! ♥
My boyfriend is taking out to dinner tonight. He won't tell me where we're going, so I guess it's a surprise. Sadly, all he's getting from me is some homemade chocolate! xD

I want to look my best for him though, so I've gotten all dolled up.
(Even sitting here typing this in my nice outfit! xP)

(Click on em for bigger pictures~)

Wow! I look 1000000x times better with circle lenses. Haha, I know he likes my normal eyes and all, but psh, I've gotta look absolutely amazing.
My outfit is sorta plain, I suppose. I didn't want to add a whole bunch of layers cause I like how the buttons really stand out against the black and white of the rest of the outfit.

What are you doing tonight for Valentine's tonight? Seeing a boyfriend/girlfriend, spending it with friends, or just staying home chilling? I hope no one is forever alone~! ;0;

{Review} Pretty and Cute webshop

I placed an order with Pretty and Cute on February 5th. Their webshop was currently not shipping orders because of the Chinese New Year and would resume on February 9th (my birthday xD).

I received my package on February 12th, and was a little surprised since they didn't notify that it had been shipped.

The 2 items I ordered were:
♥ GEO Tear Series Grey ♥
♥ Dramatic 4 lashes (10 set) ♥

The lenses were seriously priced so well! Only $7.50 per lens, so $15 total! That's the lowest I've ever seen for such wonderful quality, cute lenses!

I'm a little disappointed with the lashes though. A lot of them were not curved to fit an eye, but straight instead. It can easily be fixed by soaking them in warm water, so I'm really not too worried. (:

Service ★★★★ - Very fast shipping (Only 3 days), but not getting notified confused me.
Cost ★★★★★ - Absolutely AMAZING! My total order was only $26 including shipping!
Appearance ★★★★★ - The two items combined make my eyes look stunning!

Pretty and Cute even sells make up, so I highly recommend them for your gyaru needs!

Valentine theme nails~ + picture tutorial thingy.

I wanted to make my nails all cutesy for Valentine's Day, so I made them into chocolate dipped strawberries!

What you'll need:
♥ Base/top coat ♥
♥ Baby pink coloured polish ♥
♥ Brown polish ♥
♥ White polish ♥
♥ Long tweezers (or orange stick) ♥
♥ Nail glue ♥
♥ 2 different green rhinestones ♥
♥ Nail art brushes - dotting/detailing ♥

Step 1:
Apply base coat (duh). Let dry then apply 2 coats of the baby pink polish.

Step 2:

After the baby pink polish has dried -- use the dotting tool and white polish to make your strawberries' "seeds".

Step 3:
Now you have strawberries! Now use your detailing brush along with the brown polish.
(A lighter brown colour could even be caramel!) Trace the shape of your chocolate drips (I forgot to take a pic...) then fill it in with the polish brush.

You can finish after this step by applying 2 coats of top coat if you'd like!
I decided to give my strawberries rhinestone "stems", though. (:
I used 2mm light green & 1mm dark green rhinestones.

(optional) Step 4:
Apply nail glue along the base of your strawberry and apply the stones with large tweezers (or orange stick).
Then, apply 2 coats of top coat.

And there you have it! Adorable dipped strawberry nails just in time for Valentine's!

It's almost complete! ♥

I received my Meta blouse today that I planned to use for my Antoinette Gobelin coord!
It's made of chiffon, so it's pretty sheer & best to wear something underneath (unless wearing under a jsk, that is). A little hard to see since I used flash, but there are 3 detachable bows, so you can change up the look of the blouse! I'm in love with it! ❤

My co-ord so far!
I knew the blouse would go wonderfully with my Antoinette Gobelin jsk, but goodness, it's not just wonderful -- it's perfect!
Now all I need is a headpiece (probably a bonnet or cantonier) and socks/tights. (:
Rundown so far
Blouse: Meta
Shoes: thrifted
Accessories: Meta

Also, Drink me is holding her first giveaway!
Brand prizes will be given away -- check it out!
