Winter cleaning

Every year around this time, my family goes crazy with house cleaning. It's called "oosouji/大掃除". It's basically like spring cleaning but during the winter. It's basically preparing for the new year. Out with the old, in with the new is what they say...

Off-Shoulder Tunic + Tank Top

I bought it a while back from GALSTAR. I don't think it's available anymore. It was such a good deal too. Two piece set: Tunic & tank top in white & black.
Price: 12.35

La Rose Versailles Antoinette Gel Eyeliner

Creer Beaute's La Rose Versailles Gel Eyeliner is a creamy gel that is water proof, smudge proof, and sweat resistant. There are two types: Lady Oscar Impact & Cool Eyes (black) and Antoinette Lovely & Cute Eyes (brown). A brush is provided in both eyeliners. The artwork is from the famous manga "ベルサイユのばら/The Rose of Versailles" by Riyoko Ikeda.

I've been wearing black eyeliner for many years so I think its time for a change. I bought the Antoinette Lovely & Cute Eyes. I love the rose design on the jar. The brush is alright. The line comes out too faded or soft. I feel like I need to load the brush with a bunch of gel. I used my old angle eyeliner brush from sephora and the gel comes out great. If you like the soft look then keep the brush.

pros: love the color and stays on all day. no smudge.
cons: hate the brush

Found a fan made video of Rose of Versailles anime. Can you believe this anime was aired in 1979???

Nordic Boots

Hello! Hope everyone is having a wonderful christmas!

Decided to blog early on the xmas gifts I got. I'll start off with a gift from my sister.
Lovely red, black and white nordic print. The laces are pom-poms. The inside is super warm and fluffy. Feels like walking on air.


Merry Christmas!

Hope everyone is having a lovely holiday!

Pa Ultra Volume Lush Lashes

For the Royal T christmas event, I wore eyelashes from pa. I bought this pair because how dramatic they looked. At the event, a lot of my friends said they looked really good on me. They also said I've been improving on my gyaru make-up. Yay! I was happy to hear that. After a while, the eyelashes were irritating my eye. My friend, Tricia, recommended me to cut the lashes. She also said I should wear dolly wink cause the band is thinner so less likely to irritate. I'll do that next time! ^^

Girly Doll eye-11

Pros: Achieve dramatic look!
Cons: Eyelash band is super stiff. Have to stretch it out first.

Night holiday fun

After the christmas event at Royal T, Sho took some quick photos of me as we were walking to our car. As I said before, my camera doesn't take good pictures at night. It's slow and most picturs comes out blurry. We tried to make the best of it. He says I really need a DSLR camera. I think so too.

Akihabara Winter Wonderland

Royal T had a Christmas event on Wednesday Dec 21. There were fashion vendors, two live bands, fashion show and a cosplay contest. I went with my boyfriend and met up with some friends over there. We stayed probably little over an hour because my boyfriend was bored out of his mind. I still had fun though talking to friends and buying some christmas presents from the vendors.

Rune Boutique + Kyary Pamyu Pamyu (きゃりーぱみゅぱみゅ)

The Rune Boutique world debut took place on December 9 (friday) at Royal/T Cafe located in Culver City. Rune Boutique is the new collaboration from 6% Dokidoki's designer Sebastian Masuda and illustrator Rune Naito. There was a fashion show, fashion contest and very special performance by Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.

On the day of the show, I wanted to be there around 5pm but my boyfriend insisted that I go later cause he said "it won't be crowded". I told him that over 700 people rsvp on FB but he still didn't listen to me *sigh* . We got there at 7:30p and boy was it crowded! I got so mad at him lol.

Apparently she performed around 6pm because people arrived at 5pm (I got even more mad at my boyfriend for that too). The staff told us she was going to do another performance at 10:30p. We didn't get inside until 10:29p. I rushed to the back where the performance was going to be held. They were still doing the fashion show so I guess they were running behind schedule. I pushed my way through with my friends to center stage! There was a nice press woman that let me have her spot since she was tall and could still film above me lol.

Kyary finally came out at 11p. I couldn't move/jump around much. We were all packed like sardines plus I didn't want to block the staff woman's recording. She sang her famous "Ponponpon" and "Tsukematsukeru/つけまつける". Afterwards I moved towards the left stage cause Kyary was going to do photos with everyone. They were short on time so they did group photos of 4 with Kyary and the other two models from %6 dokidoki.

Outfit + Kyary Pamyu Pamyu eyelashes

I bought an outfit two days before the Kyary Pamyu Pamyu event. At first I was going for an over the top crazy outfit but decided to go for a cute plain look. I went to H&M but they didn't have interesting there so I checked out Forever 21.

Bear Top
This is a wide top for a size small. I love the print but it kinda makes me look chubby. LOL.
Price: $19.80

Ruffle Skirt
Peach color ruffle skirt. It has an elastic waist and the ruffles are sparkly.
Price: 15.80

(hair bow, blonde wig, black tank, bear top, ruffle skirt, pink latte bag, black leggings, h&m ankle boots)

Express Sequin Sweater & Tank Top

I love Express. Their clothes are pricey but I love their classy look. During black friday, they had a 40% discount off their entire store until 12pm. The store was pretty empty so I took my time looking for clothing. By the time I was ready to purchase my items, the line was super long!!! They had 5 people attending the cashier and yet I still waited in line for an hour. I think by the time I got out of the store it was 3:40am. I was ready to pass out.

I bought this purple outfit for a christmas party that happens every year at my aunt's house. I love sparkly things so I bought a sequin sweater and matching tank top. The sequin doesn't come out good in pictures but this outfit is honestly gorgeous in person!!

Sweater: Original price: $79.90 -> Black friday discount: $47.94

Tank Top: Original price: $29.90 -> Black friday discount: $17.94
