my purchases from eki and d ♥ t charms

This is the package from eki. So pretty, can't wait to open it!












Squeeeeee! Pretty new purse! I really love how the inside is satiny nice. I'm currently using this purse. So far, I've gotten lots of nice compliments from my co-workers.









And the nifty extras! Thanks again eki, I really love your creation and I super appreciate the goodies! You're awesome!











Now for my package from d ♥ t charms....








yay for sparkly new charm!!!










And she wrote me a sweet note as well as another that arrived seperatley a few days later (not pictured) thanking me for my purchase and apologizing for the delay in receipt. It was really thoughtful that she sent the additional card, I didn't mind the wait because I do realize everyone has their own life and things can come up. Thank you Dana for the card! You are very sweet!












And I got yummy yummy candies from her as well. I heart candy.









Sorry this post lacked words. I lack motivation to make words today. Love!

a look at aromaleigh on me

I got my aromaleigh samples yesterday, so excited!! Right after receiving them, I ran to my room to give them a try.

I had read about this makeup on lolita charm then visited the site and was instantly intrigued. Especially with the rocks! line. I noticed that quite a few things were named after depeche mode songs (I noticed a lot of items in genereal were named after 80's songs) which struck me as super awesome. I loooooove depeche mode and I looooove makeup.

All of the samples contained generous amounts but I still used them quite sparingly cuz I want them to last as long as possible and to give me a good idea of how far the product can go.

Here is what I look like with no makeup
















In this, I just applied the glissade foundation in 1n. I had also gotten another glissade foundation in alabaster which is much lighter. I'm thinking it will look just as nice. I may try it by itself soon then depending on how I feel about, I may mix it with 1n just to give it a slightly lighter appearance (I love having pale skin).


For as little I used, it covered quite well. Plus no itching or dry feeling like I had experienced with bareminerals makeup. The matte appearance it gave me lasted almost all day. I'd say about 6 or 7 hours later I started to look a little oily but my nose stayed nice until I washed my face.




Now for the eyes...

From the gothic lolita collection I used little craving (pink) and teddy wisp (bown). These pictures seriously do the makeup no justice. They are very pretty and sparkle just right without looking like I used some crap made for little girls (such cosmetics tend to have too much glitter for me). I really really like them. I also have purchaed a few more of the eyeshadows and shimmers that I didn't use but I will try to remember to post picture of those as well.
Again, application was light and I used very little product.

Overall look without eyeliner and mascara...

For the lips is Pinafore from the gothic lolita collection as well as metamorphosis finishing powder. The finishing powder has an absolutely beautiful shimmer that really brings out the skin's glow that isn't too glimmery. It also evened out my skin tone a bit. I could definitely wear this on a daily basis. Love it! The lip color went on very smooth and felt very comfortable. The color itself I found to be surprisingly flattering.

Overall, I noticed the actual product looks much nicer and prettier in life than on a computer screen. I can't wait to try my other samples!!!


Here is the finished look with my eyeliner (bed head big fat fun in black) and mascara (covergirl eyelights in black ruby).











Can't forget to put in my blue wing lenses!
Don't I look so innocent? haha!

huuuump day/wednesday

I hope that everyone knows that I hate wednedays. Almost as much as mondays. But I am not going to let that spoil my fun.

Today I have lots to do but I don't feel like doing any of them. I will eventually. Eventually.
This afternoon I promised to take my son out and play bubbles with him. I will as soon as he gets his nap and lunch. So far, he doesn't seem to want to do either one.
I just noticed, I need more coffee.

Lately I've been using Chi Nourish Intense shampoo and conditioner. I really love the scent and it does a decent job with making my hair feel nice. I might buy it again however, I have lots of stuff I have to use before I do any repeat buying and as long as I am working where I do, the chances of that are slim. I love working at a beauty supply store but the fact that it only supports my beauty junkie habits is not the best thing. But you know what? I don't care, I love my job.

I still have liter bottle of Redken All Soft hanging around my shower. I love the stuff but I also love the other newer things I bring home from work. I only make things like this harder for myself.

A while back, I made a goal to make 1000 paper cranes. I've only made one so far that took me forever to make because I couldn't figure out how to do it and was almost convinced myself that origami is some crazy paper magic bullshit that I will never figure out. When I finally finished my first crane, I realized it was bullshit but still really wanted to make 999 more of them. I used to really love origami and still do but I am just not very skilled yet. Practice makes perfect and I have little patience. Fun stuff.
I have waaaay too many projects going on at once. I need to finish one or two like now.


OMG! Those guys in the group Big Bang are sooooo hot! It really makes me miss dating asian guys (which I used to do a lot before I met my husband). In a way, I kinda wish I would have married an asian man like I wanted to but I do love my husband more than any other man in the world and I really couldn't give him up. He is my lovie bear!

monday!!

I have to work today..meh. It is not entirely bad because today we are having our 10% off sale and it will make they day go by faster. But sometime people get cranky and lots of pressure gets pushed on us and it makes for sad employees. And on top off all that, its girl time. Yuck! I wish their was a less messy, prettier and more fun way to have girl time. and i was kinda hoping i was pregnant, i want another baby Oh well, better luck next month right?

I just recently bought a charm from d ♥ t charms. I can't wait to get it! It's super pretty. I'll post pictures as soon as I get it. ^-^

Also, this month is my daddy's birthday. I need to find him a super special gift. Not only is a super dad, but he takes care of me very well even though I'm not his responsibility any more. That's just how much my daddy loves me. I always plan on paying him back every cent he has ever spent on me that he didn't have to spend but it's also nice to get and/or make special things for daddy. I plan on baking him his favorite pie (pecan) and I'm gonna try to find him a replacement for his long-lost purple paisley shirt. I know it sounds like the biggest fashion no-no for an older man but I know he will appreciate the fact that I remembered the purple paisley shirt. I really hope I can find one!

Gotta go get ready for work now. Love!

last night's failure

So I didn't even come close to finishing my amigurumi. I ended up falling asleep around 6 and not getting up until 8 then going back to bed around 10. I didn't even start. I had to make food for the husband's lunch and get my son ready for bed.

As far as the husband's lunch goes, I made egg salad for him. He gets toast with that and fruit for his lunch. I really want to start making bento lunches for him. I have an idea on how to do that but I have a feeling he would hate it because of it being cute looking. I wrote (with food coloring) on his sandwich once and he freaked out. He didn't think it was food color I used to write on it. Maybe sometime I'll try drawing a cute picture on his bread and see how that blows over. Anyways, I really think it would be neat to send him off with a bento lunch. It would be good practice for when my son goes to school. I think he would enjoy a bento lunch.

That is all for now. Good day everyone! Love!

Lazy day

I feel like I lay around the house waaaay too much when I have off work. I should be cleaning, doing laundry and other such productive activities. I have many goals and I feel like I am just wasting my own time. I really need to get my shit together.

So tonight, I WILL FINISH my pink panda amigurumi for my nieces. I plan on making most of the holiday gifts that I am giving out and I started early for a reason.

I'll post more a little later. My son is calling for me. Love!

waiting on circle lenses

So, I am currently awaiting my second pair of circle lenses. Last time I bought the plain ck-105 from geo. This time I am getting a pair of blue wing lenses from geo. The buyer I get them from was very fast about shipping my order to me last time and it came with a free contact case (i chose the pink hello kitty case). Let's hope I get this pair just as fast as the last. I can't wait, I am so excited!! I really like the way the blue wings give the halo effect and should look really nice with my green eyes.
I was really surprised of how nice the black ones looked on me. Here's a picture of me wearing them:



When I get my blue wing lenses, I'll post a picture of them as well.
I've never been one to really like my own pictures but I have to say that those lenses really make my eyes look nice. I really like this picture.

This christmas, I am going to attempt making macaron cookies for everyone. I hope to come up with several 12-ct boxes of cookies to give out. I figured if I start baking early, I can get all the crappy practice cookies out of the way and have decent looking cookies to give. Usually I am pretty good with baking but for some reason I suck ass at baking cookies. There is also a fruit tart I plan on making that usually turns out nice to give to my parents and in-laws and is also a good back-up if I cannot pull off the macarons. I'm also keeping an eye out for mini tart pans this year. Last year they were impossible to find, especially in december. I'd love to make mini fruit tarts instead of the big ones. I just love baking small, cute things!

As well as baking, I am also devoting lots of time to crocheting and general 'crafty-bits' to configure gifts. I've starting making some amigurumi for my nieces and nephews and trying to get it done by the end of september. I really want to be finished with everyone's gifts by the begining of december so I am not stressing over it 2 days before christmas. I do love the holidays but I don't love how people get all frantic over something not worth getting worked up over and I am not going to be one of those people this year.

That is all for now.
