Las Vegas Summer Trip ~ Part 1


Ok so here's the extremely late post I was supposed to write about my Vegas trip back in August Dx Now that I'm... procrastinating on cleaning my room and have time lol. This is more of an image post than anything. Just short summaries of my stay :) Please be aware it might be image heavy!

The bf sleeping on the plane ride there~ (random lady's butt the background =_=)

 
At first before we went, James only wanted to stay a "normal" hotel there because of financial issues... I thought he was crazy LOL! When you're in Vegas you wanna stay at one of the amazing 5 diamond hotels that they're famous for! Because hey, the prices are extremely good/reasonable for what you get. It's probably a little cheaper or more than an average Best Western Inn and it's pure luxury.

I'm so happy I chose the hotel because I went with The Venetian ;) Everyone commonly goes to Caesars Palace but I didn't think the rooms or interior design matched up as well as Venetian. My cousin was so jealous and called me a bitch because she's been to Vegas numerous times but has never gone to this hotel and she wanted to so badly XDDD I guess cause it's more "honeymoon/couple-y??" hahaha I mean the standard room for The Venetian was a SUITE! Other hotels I checked and they all have that basic cheap room if you don't wanna spend too much but the default room for this is just... wow. And it's for about $150 a night??

I took so many snapshots of our Luxury Suite (once I come back, I'm totally going to upgrade our room, no matter the cost LOL) I just loooooove hotels and fancy washrooms. XDDD I don't care most of the time if the room is crap, as long as the washroom looks nice lololol!

Autumn British Doll Photoshoot~

This was a photo shoot done with my boyfriend as the photographer about 3 weeks ago (since my hair is not blonde anymore ToT). I guess in a way I kinda inspired him to seriously take up photography? If not just for a hobby. He wanted to also help me take good modeling pictures for my portfolio once he gets better and do that whole "camera-man dating the model thing" XD LOL! As long as I get to do the styling and he can take care of the rest. I kept poking fun of him and his "noobie" camera skills because they were pretty bad ;P Out of the hundreds of images he took, I found only a couple I really liked which includes the ones above! Overall he just needed work on the angles because so many of them made me look extremely fat... =_=;;

I coordinated this with the big retro/European style boom that has been going on in Japanese fashions lately. This is the British-styled instead of the French, which I will do again later on with proper photos! x3

Hype my look? =D <333 That's all fellow readers~

Purikura Apps For Itouch/Phones Review~

After many requests, here is the post with the two purikura apps I discovered on my itouch 4! Many other users probably already tried this but for those who haven't, I made a quick little rundown here.

They're called "DECOPIC" and "PriPri Marron" (DECOPIC is free, PRIPRI was for a limited time and is now paid) ^as shown in the above image

First up is "DECOPIC"! I really like this app because of the roller stamp controls. I think the only thing that really bugs me about it is that the image size is a square as shown above. So you have to crop your pic instead of having it the full length.

 
There's many types of nice filters you can use! You have to decorate images and upload them to be able to unlock the other filters so it kinda acts as a game. Overall I really like the roller and stamps from this app. They classified them between six categories.

The other app is "PriPri Marron" ^the pink bear mascot. This one allows you to edit the full pic without cropping but you can crop if you want. The stamps and roller isn't as good as "DECOPIC" in my opinion, but still overall very cute ^-^

 
For either, you can change how big or small you want the stamps to be or rotating it around. I prefer "DECOPIC" for the text writing since they actually glow. For this app it's either plain or with a really faded border so text doesn't show up well. It has better image frames though! Text is hard to write in general with just your finger! XD Considering stylist pens don't work on the screen it's hard to see what you're writing.

That's all for this post! Hope you enjoy downloading them and making your own purikura creations. =)
