My friend recently came back from Japan and I asked her to buy some clothes for me~  Most of the clothing were out of stock since it was near New Years when she went, but oh well~  She did manage to come back with a Listen Flavor Evil Cutie Sweater!  >3<  It's soo adorable!  I actually didn't know it was going to be as long as it is, but I'm glad that it was!!! 8D  I was going to do some photoshoots so I was just like, hmm, might as well!  ;D

And more spam.  I really love how my legs blend into the background to look like I just have skeleton legs.  XD
 I also had tons of fun at the photoshoot~  I also did some photoshoot of other clothing so I'll post that later!  ^^  All photography credits go to MV Photography at Facebook.

plush bear wool coat.

I finally received my coat!!  ><  I've been wearing a panda coat for about 1.5 winters now and it was the only coat I owned so it was either I freeze my butt off wearing just layers of jackets for the sake of having a different look, or wear the same coat over and over again.  I'm really picky when it comes to clothes so I was just browsing around one day and found this wool coat.  I instantly fell in love with it.  They haven't released it yet, but was available for preorder.  Knowing a bit about this brand, they release things in limited quantity and discontinue it after the season is over, or something like that.  Anywho, I decided I must have it so I bought it along with a Taobao batch that I hosted.  I was so happy that the box got here in such short time~

It is sooooooo cute!  It shedded a little bit but that was to be expected and afterwards it was ok~  There's white lining inside too.  My only problem is, it's slightly scratchy around the neck area.  I think the fur started a bit too early around the neck area.
With the hood on~  I'm a bear now~  They had a pink and white version of this; I got the white x beige one.
This item was bought from bobon21 on Taobao.  It's actually sold out right now, so I'm not sure if that's temporary or they discontinued it already.

marbled tea eggs.

I was craving some tea eggs again and there was three cartons of eggs at home, so I decided, well why not!  Let's make some tea eggs~  I have always followed Steamy Kitchen recipe for the eggs when I wanted to make them, and they're really delicious~  *.*  I'm no cooking expert and this recipe is really easy to make~  And making it in bulk is a good idea!  It's better to have more one person in the house or else you'll be eating eggs everyday.  lol  I'm not going to include the recipe since it's already listed it out on the website above, but I'll just include photos of my process.

First off, I boiled 12 eggs since there's like five people in the house.  [Please visit the recipe listed above in more detail, I'm just summarizing and I also doubled up on the recipe so the amount of ingredients will be different]
Afterwards, I cooled the eggs with running water.  Don't pour out the water from the pot!!
Now, time to crack them.  Don't like break it in half or something, just do it gently.  lol  FYI this photo was hard to take; I was actually holding the spoon with my mouth with the camera in my right hand.  Dx
I took a photo of the ingredients that I used...sooo much sugar ;A;
Oops, I barely missed the mark for 1 1/2 cup of soy sauce.
Put everything back in the pot with the water to let the eggs soak in all that flavor~  *.*  If only you were here to smell it.  -drools-
AND the end result~  It looks tasty doesn't it; good thing I have 12 eggs.  lolol  Going to eat it all...not really.  8D

[review] rimmel - extra pop lash purple.

As I said earlier, I think, school has started for me already.  I had to run out and by materials and textbooks for class.  I'm taking a Theater Design class which calls for me to have art supplies so I ran to like every art/crafts store with coupons in hand.  XD  I also ran to Walgreens to look for simple things that I could get cheaper.  I walked by the makeup section [like I always do, not matter what I'm doing] and I found a section of Rimmel mascara.  I've been meaning to buy colored mascara for a while, but I wasn't ready to put down $20 on mascara that I would wear mostly for cosplay and other occasions aka not spending so much on something I won't use everyday.  I came across Rimmel's Extra Pop Lash and instantly wanted them, and they were only $4!  I wanted to buy one, but I didn't know how good of quality it would be, so I actually went back home and came back another day to grab it after researching it.  I was really hoping it would still be there since it was Limited Edition [I have really bad luck with limited edition items, too indecisive and regret not buying it later lol...], but it was still there so I went ahead and bought it!

There was no box or packaging, it just came like this.
And this is the back~  You can't really see all of the ingredients though, sorry.  ^^;  It was made in England!  Did not know that.  lol  Well it's called Rimmel London for a reason.  XD
The brush looks like any normal mascara brush to me, and I really like the color.  It's not a dark purple, but a lighter purple so it'll probably show up better.
I applied it on both my eyelashes and eyebrows with no primer and I have to say it really does show up!  I wonder what it would look like with primer~  *>*  But you do have to spend a bit of time making sure you cover every part of your eyelashes.  You can still see a bit of black on the right eye.  lol
I wanted to try the turquoise they had, but it was all gone already.  The only ones they had left were green and purple.  QQ  Hopefully I'll find the turquoise somewhere.  8D

angelic pretty lucky pack 2014.

I promised someone that I would do a review on all the fukubukuro [lucky packs] that I managed to purchase during New Years from Japan.  It consisted of me hyperventilating and refreshing pages to contacting six different shopping agents.  It was hectic.  lol  Anyways, I wanted to buy more, but I only had so much money to spend and I was late to some lucky packs.  This is my first year buying lucky packs, as I recently just found out about them.  I managed to get a Putumayo fukubukuro and an Angelic Pretty fukubukuro.

They offered four different sets including a mystery pack that would be revealed later.
The mystery lucky packs were their Fancy Paper Dolls Set and their newly released Wonder Queen Set.

I currently have my AP Candy Sprinkle Salopette Set since my friend in Japan hasn't sent me the Putumayo one yet.  So, when I found out about it, I was like "ohh this is pretty, and such a nice deal!", then somehow I ended up really liking the JSK and salopette set in lavender.  But by the time I decided that I wanted to get it, they were all sold out on the Japanese website.  The only other way was to buy it in stores during New Years, so I contacted several agents seeing if anyone could help me buy it.  They were all either busy or charging me like $100+ just to stand in line for one.  Then I found a friend that happened to live in Japan and was going to buy one as well [turns out she didn't buy it, but something else, but I was so happy she was willing to help].  I had like a Plan A, B, C, & D, it was pretty hilarious and nerve wrecking.  I managed to grab one from the Angelic Pretty SF store after a long week of "omg, I'm never going to get one" -refreshes pages everywhere-".  Though it was priced higher than the actual price, which was around $120, I bought it for $184, shipping included from SF.  Anyways, I was just so happy to get one.

The contents came in a cute tote bag~
And these are the contents!  The fukubukuro comes with a parker, salopette, pochette, hair bow, and a pair of socks.
Close up of the parker; it's really soft, but thinner than I had imagined it to be.  The back was just plain so I didn't take a photo of it.
This is the salopette with the pastel pink pochette and hair bow.  It's so cute and pretty!  *.*  I need to iron it though.  And sadly, it is a bit big on me, if you noticed how I had to tighten it all the way in the back.  lol  The salopette had the colors white, pink, sax, and pastel yellow on it, which I did not expect the sax and yellow.
This is the pochette; it's decorated with a cute bow with pearls and has the Angelic Pretty logo in gold on the bottom.  The material, I think it's pleather, but it is REALLY soft, like I couldn't believe how soft it was.  o.o
As for the socks, it is star themed with two horses near the ankle.
I hope you enjoyed the review, I'll be posting my Putumayo Fukubukuro review when I get it!  -waits impatiently-
Just a FYI, I was just staring at this page freaking out.  lol

gradient skies tights.

I haven't posted in a while...I died in the mass of MMOs I've been playing.  lol  I started playing Blade and Soul on the China server, and it's sooo addicting!!  The character customization is so nice as well, then I also got back onto Tera.  I've just been gaming all this time and lost like 5 lbs in the process, which isn't good.  So I started eating more to gain back the 5 lbs.  @>@
Anywho, I finally got the tights I ordered from Taobao~  \o/  I was so excited for them and been waiting for them for a while and I finally received them today!  I took them out of the package really quickly lol.

This is what they look like~  For some reason, they really like to put all the tights in packaging similar to this, or maybe it's just a coincidence mine all have the same packaging.
I was going to wear them later since I had to work, but I couldn't resist so I went ahead and tried them on.  They were SO soft and silky.  I had some previous pair of tights like these, but they were more of tattoo tights and see through.  These are really opaque and vibrant and I love them!  *.*
Too pretty, I wish there were more colors~  8D
Anywho, very great buy and wonder what clothing I would pair with it~
Here's the link to them if you wish to purchase them!  They're fairly cheap by itself, but international shipping is another story.  lol
