Babe's Southern Grill

Lazy junkfood sunday!

Sho and I felt like trying something new. There was this southern type restaurant near his place. It used to be a Wiener-schnitzel. We ordered the Memphis Baked Potato and  Macaroni & cheese. First time I've seen a baked potato this jammed packed! It was stuffed with pulled pork with bacon bits, cheese, and sour cream. The mac & cheese was yummy too. There goes my diet down the drain!

Ami Goodbye Party


I met Ami (as well as other fabulous gals) at the grand opening of Shibuya La last year here. After that party, we just clicked. We started meeting each other up at local events. She's fun, smart, funny, and super nice. I really enjoyed her company. After high school, it was really hard making new girlfriends especially those interested in japanese fashion. I was happy to have met a girl like Ami.This month, she hit some hard times and had to move to Las Vegas. I was really sad because we were becoming so close. Although our time was short, I felt like I've known her for years. We'll try to visit each other every now and then. It's not the end of the world. Las Vegas is only 4 hours away and there is facebook to keep in touch hehe. I really hope she moves back to LA sometime in the future. Love you Ami 

hard to find friends like Ami :(((
Had dinner at BCD Tofu House in K-Town.

Afterwards, went to the The Grove Mall for dessert and walked to CVS for candy xD

Circus by Andrea's Choice

I'll be reviewing Somersault Circus by Andrea's Choice. Andrea is a popular make-up guru on youtube. She will be launching her nail collection Fall 2012. The collection is very neon and has a circus theme. There are 5 nail polishes: Reverso, Ringmaster, Spectacle, Somersault, and Tightrope. I get first dibs on it since I'm a myglam subscriber. :]

Product Info
Each chip-resistant shade is..
❤ Vegan
❤ Cruelty free
❤ Free of Formaldehyde, Toluene and DBP.
❤ 13.2 ml

I don't have nails cause I'm a nail bitter so I asked my friend Sayuri to lend me her nails. LOL.

We took these photos at night so the lighting is kinda dark. At first, I was going to show how each coat layer looked like but those pictures turned out too dark to edit. For the rest of the photos, I tried to make the best of it and to take photos at the best lighting angles possible.

Rating: 3/5
This is a really bright yellow color. I like the pink and yellow combination. It reminds me of pink lemonade! Okay, on to the bad news. Sayuri had to apply 4 coats to achieve the bold yellow color. She says other nail polishes should cover with 2-3 coats.  Also, the nail polish has a really strong chemical smell. Hopefully your room is well ventilated.

Shibuya LA

Yay! I'm glad to say that I'm finally over my cold. Finally! It took 4 weeks. (;¬_¬)
Time to get back to blogging!
So these photos were taken end of June. Few days before Anime Expo.

June 23
My friend June invited me out. I came late to the meetup cause I got stuck in traffic and also had trouble finding the place. The meetup was at Shibuya LA owned by our friend, Elly. She owns two stores in San Gabriel. One is a lingerie store selling cute underwear from Japan like aimerfeel. The other store selling clothing from Japan like Liz Lisa, TRALALA, WC, Miura.. etc.

Here's her store interior.

We were waiting for other girls to show up so to pass time Ellly wanted us to model summer collection of Liz Lisa. How nice of her.





Little camwhoring lol

Group Photo

I was happy to be Elly's store model for a day. The group photo would've looked better if I didn't wear those black stockings. I couldn't take them off because I had a really awkward sunburn on my legs. LOL. Afterwards, we ate dinner at June's work place Gatten Sushi. It's a revolving sushi bar.

In case you guys were wondering why I was wearing blue eyeshadow, I was initially wearing this top before.

If you guys live in the so cali area, check out Elly's stores.

Rating: 5/5
After taking these photos, I realized I have long eyelashes. They're thin but long. Not sure if it's a good thing. Both my mom and sister have short, thick lashes. I think I inherited it from my dad. Er, back to mascara. After I applied the first coat, I could easily see some volume. My lashes appeared fuller. The product description was right. They kind of naturally curled upwards. In these photos, I did not use an eyelash curler. =)

- Volume
- Waterproof 
- Curls naturally upwards

- Lashes clump together

Cat Ears

I accidentally broke my maid headband during Day 1 of Anime Expo(AX). Wearing a maid outfit without a headband just doesn't feel complete so I bought a nekomimi from a random vendor. The vendor had pink & white ones which were super cute but our AX maid uniform had to be black, red, or white colors. So I bought this headband instead.

Price: $10.00
