Shops from Liz Lisa, Luminous and HoneyColor

Hello followers! Just a small update on what I've been up to and bought lately. I'll be doing a lot of reviews for the make-up purchases I made and FINALLY do a style post. I feel like I haven't done one in a long time. T_T But work is consuming my life and the most expensive month of my life is now here. (February is my b-day and my boyfriend's). My puppy Kenji is also a handful Dx

But I got some time to relax a bit when I went to a friend's party last Friday. My style is shown in these two pics :)

All my packages arrived this week with my Liz Lisa purchases! For myself and not customers this time lol

Also got Luminous lashes and I used them for the past week because they're simply amazing! Still gotta try out the Cecil McBee ones. I got new contact lenses too from HoneyColor again and it's the Mimi Cafe series. I didn't find any reviews on this one (probably missed it), so I will do one myself.

So much shopping... I bought hockey tickets for my bf's birthday which is a lot. And I'm also going to Jin Akanshi's concert when he comes to Vancouver with Katrina. I managed to get the meet and greet bundle so we get VIP passes to see him backstage along with a bunch of gifts... Which I will be selling LOL! I'm not SUPER big fan of KAT-TUN/JIN but I do like some of their music and think Jin was the most attractive. I'd go crazier over Arashi XD It's just a nice chance to go to a JE concert I guess? ;3

Gotta pay off all my bills so I have enough credit to book the limo and club for my birthday... *sigh* so much planning, it's stressful. On top of that me and my bf got into a huge fight and we've been recovering. GAH! On the flip side, I went with my mom to get a quote for Vegas again! :D This time I will be going with family for Spring Break. I asked for the same hotel LOL! I know I should try different ones every time I'm there cuz there's so many! But I just love The Venetian... And the other hotels don't have nice rooms other than for "couples". And since I'm staying in a 2 bed-room, none of them were nice. Just Venetian as always. Why not? At least I have previous experience and it's easier for me to get around right?

I still haven't figured what I want to get myself for my birthday... So I've been just debating on what I should spend money on as a pamper gift haha. I wonder, should I dye my hair blond again, get nails done or get my navel pierced?? :D

Liz Lisa, Tralala, Cecil McBee, DreamV Shops & Purikura

An update from my day out today in Richmond and recent purchases. I felt like I haven't been in Richmond forever (since around November), even downtown Vancouver. I haven't walked those streets since I graduated college... Been stuck in this boring town forever lol. Finally decided to splurg a little~~

These are just some solo purikura's I took. I really need to learn to actually have full out make-up done before I hit those booths. =_= My mom always rushes me so I never have enough time other than to put on mascara and eyeliner. Which doesn't show up well on the photos (needs fake lashes, heavy eyeliner and lenses). Turned out horrifying lol so I had to edit my own shots with applying fake lashes so my eyes look more decent and not bare Dx My hair was also curled extremely quickly  -.-*

I went to Cube Inc. and bought this DreamV sweater on sale for $35 CAD! Not bad... I would've paid more if I got it from the site with all the shipping/fees. I couldn't find a stock pic but it's similar to the one below~

I bought the Cecil Mcbee lashes too at $32 CAD. These were the ones that I was going to sell in my online shop and would've cost about $35 CAD to get anyways so it's not too bad... Expensive but I'd rather pay $30 for Cecil Mcbee or Liz Lisa lashes as opposed to Dolly Wink or Diamond ones since those are easier to get without shopping service.

This popular Liz Lisa floral dress was bought for one of my customer's. It's the authentic one and is quite pretty! The color she ordered is actually pink so I didn't like it in person, but in these photos it looks like the white version. Kinda wanna re-sell my imitation one and trade it for this XD Only reason why I like my version cuz it has more ribbons and double layered on the bottom like Lena's runway dress.

Instead I bought this Tralala coat! I originally ordered the pink one for another customer and it looked really nice in person so I had to get the beige one for myself lol. Absolutely love it <3 Perfect for that Golds Infinity Paris look I was aiming for cuz my Liz Lisa coat was too thick. I wore it up top in my purikura pics. :)

Sushi buffet today~! I got so full again I think I might get sick of sushi X_x It's all thanks to my mother who ordered so many stuff and tried shoving it down me and my brother's throat.

That's all for now fellow readers! For those who want to order from my shop, please refer here: http://www.facebook.com/groups/vixxen/

For the next post, I will do a review on an interactive purikura app called: Snapeee!

SPONSORED ~ Geo Orange Lotus Flower - Lens Review (Mukuchu)


Usage Modality:  Yearly
BC:  8.7 mm
DIA:  15.0 mm
Water content:  42%
 (views of the lens in different lighting)
Comfort: I felt some irritation on the left lens but it went away after a few minutes. The thing I don't like about it is that it's not completely comfortable. You can actually feel the lens on your eye and you know it's there. Unlike some of my other contacts where it glides on easily and it doesn't even feel like I'm wearing them. This one doesn't have any blurriness to it's vision, but it does still feel as if you have something in your eye constantly. After about an hour of wearing them, my eyes started to dry up fast too.

Color & Enlargement: At first I was skeptical about the color because the pattern looked a bit tacky. Kind of like the older Geo Angel lenses? But it really blends well with your eyes and doesn't seem too strong, quite subtle. The lotus design gives your eye a dim glitter and isn't too visible like the anime lenses. The color is orange I'm assuming, but it does in the end look brown. If I could compare, it's really similar to the Mimi series by Tsubasa. Probably the Cafe ones. And being 15.0 mm, it really does enlarges your eyes!

MukuChu: Based in Australia, though the site looks simple and beginner-ish, the content is laid out properly and easy to navigate. I just think they should provide more info about each lens or have more preview images of the styles. Other than that, the seller is communicative and very kind. Shipping was surprisingly fast too even when it was going through the holiday times. I hope to continue doing more reviews for them and help their business grow!

Alive Again After the Holidays...

Hello readers! I'm sorry I've gone AWOL again for the past 2 weeks. Christmas and New Years have been HECTIC (but so much fun)! I've just been working non-stop for the past few days and finally got a break today to catch up on things. Especially when my internet wasn't working and I had over 200 emails to go through Dx Surviving off of my ipod's wifi in Starbucks sucked lol.

Here's a little update on what I did for the holidays! For the next post, I will be doing a lens review for a new sponsorship. :)

As you can see from the first image... This was the madness that I had to shoot for the New Years party Dx ABC = Absinthe, Bacardi 151 and Chartreuse, all equaling to 200% alcohol... Yup lol. I'm usually really good at drinking (I get pitifully tipsy/drunk EASILY BUT I can hold it well. Meaning I've never puked, blacked out or gone to the point of forgetting everything or doing something stupid. I've never lost myself no matter how much I drank haha. It's interesting to find out what my limit is... Even the day after I remember everything. Which isn't always a good thing =_=) But man that shot burned. I usually have vodka, rum or tequila but this thing was nasty... but good XD I only had 3 of those and I had the worst stomach ache after for an hour. Kinda ruined the party for me since I had to lay down and everyone got worried. :( This never happened to me before so I got angry lol I thought it was because I was super full from eating sushi buffet before, but they said it's a good thing my stomach was full instead of empty. It's probably because I drank them too fast.

I had to work the day after this madness! But it was a fun night. We did the countdown, danced and played Taboo, along with a drunk Guitar Hero x) The line-ups to clubs were unbelievably long so definitely not going there.

This is what I got for Xmas! James got me a necklace, another Sanrio character stuffed toy (Cinnamoroll) and the huge couch dog bed for Kenji hahaha, it's not even for me! The rest are from his family to me. All I got from my family was just money. My parents still owe me something ;P

And that's all! Thanks for reading guys! I'll go get that review up as soon as I can!

Btw my online store now has the new Dolly Wink items to order! :) I really like the new lashes and think I'm gonna get some of my own~ http://www.facebook.com/groups/vixxen/
