DreamV NuBra Review

I finally got around to buying these NuBras that I've been wondering about for awhile. Not being blessed with the biggest boobs around (I am an A cup), I didn't want to be ripped off with breast enhancement stuff (not medication) like "miracle push-up bras", gel inserts or those chicken cutlets which I remembered buying for my grad dress in the past because the sellers said it guarantees to enhance my cleavage. Nope. Those things popped right off when I tried to pull it up to create bigger cleavage. So it required me placing them quite far back to my side and gather up my entire breast.

I saw these on sale numerous times, even Chinese versions at stores over here and I didn't know if they really worked or not. I didn't want it popping off again. -.- But from the pictures, it shows that the bra is strong enough to hold a full water bottle! And because this is more Asian-oriented and I know typically Asian girls aren't blessed with C's or D's so I thought I'd try it. After all, the bras over here are more marketing towards westerners with already big boobs. They don't need much push-up.

Here's my results:

Mini Update on a Few Shops and Sales Post

Hey readers! Just a mini post of a few shops I got in from the past weeks. The DreamV boots and Liz Lisa dress are ordered for a customer of mine! If you didn't know yet, I do have an online boutique store on Facebook (Vixxen). Feel free to contact me or browse through the products :) I sell mainly Japanese branded clothes and can order stuff for you, acting as a shopping service too.


My wonderful NuBras from DreamV as well as the numerous stockings lol. My friends all loved the ones I wore so they asked me to buy some for them too. I actually have one garter stocking available in my sales tab post above ^

This was a small post indeed. I'm now off to make another "review" entry coming right after of these NuBras I got. Look out for it!

Vegas, Shops, Food!

I guess before I post about my second Vegas trip, I should've finished writing about the first one yes? Lol well it wasn't AS fun as before because this time I went with my mom and under-aged brother. =_= So it felt more of a "relaxing boring vacation" than ever. Filled with food and shopping and food and... more shopping. I'm so tired of those two now. I drank my life away because I was so bored waiting for my mom to finish in the change rooms... Of literally every store we went into OMG! Didn't watch any shows either. Ah well it wasn't bad in the end, just boring since I went with the worst people. XD I bought a bit of stuff though.

These are the d.i.a tops I bought online that arrived. The second one doesn't quite fit as well as I hoped, so I'm going to use it as my motivation lol.

My only goal for shopping was really to get black heels, cause unbelievably I didn't own any. :| I had crappy super low pumps that I wear to job interviews (doesn't even fit my foot properly). So somehow I ended up buying two heels since it was shoe glory *o* I bought these Betsy Johnson ones at Macy's. I LOVE that department store. Every time I go to the States I have to go there lol they always have cheaper stuff and lots of sale promotions.

Then these beauties... I bought it at the hotel I stayed at (of course Venetian again ;P). They're Wild Rose shoes. I honestly don't know much about that brand other than the fact that they have REALLY nice trendy stuff. Devon's Shoes at Metrotown used to (or still does) carry the brand since I bought stiletto boots of the same name before. They're really affordable. Around $50-$100. But I couldn't find an online site. I found sites that sold their shoes for $150+ though O.o so I wonder why it's more expensive than in retail?

Gotta love Alexander McQueen/Lady Gaga shoes. They're actually pretty light and comfy too despite the height. It's almost like wearing those super tall geta sandals that oiran wear for their dances.

Pic with me and my blurred out mom XD this was the only pic taken of me and surprising I look decent for once.

And now I leave you with taunting images of delicious food I had in Vegas haha~ After that four day "binge" moment with buffets and fast food... I feel so sick now that I'm back home and don't wanna eat much anymore. Guess that's a good thing? 8D

I'm already planning a trip to go to Cali in May!! :D Really in a trip-mode and want to go to Disneyland as well as visit Emily. I wanna finally meet all the other gals there too ^_^

Japonicana Tour - Vancouver (Jin Akanishi)

Hello readers! Another update from me (after sleeping almost all day from the time changes =_=) This is just a little summary of Jin's concert that I went to last night with Katrina.

I bought VIP tickets to get a meet & greet with Jin, and sit in the 6th or 7th row from the stage which was pretty good. We were dead center too and not that far away. But I seriously wondered how so many other girls got the seats in front of us -.- Fan club maybe? Haha~

(wow my face looks so round)

Photo Shoot Preview Images & New Hair

Hi readers! A small post of what I've been up to in the past week~ That photo shoot that I posted about? Here are some preview pics! I edited these myself from the originals for personal showing ONLY so it is not good quality with a logo that prevents people from stealing. It wasn't a free event and I technically paid for my photos but because these are not Pete's edits, it's nothing official to be distributed. I'm still waiting on the final edits from the photographer.

As my first time modelling, it felt so awkward lol I wanted to do boudoir originally but decided to pass once I gain more experience. Plus the camera really does make you gain 10lbs so I gotta lose more weight before doing that =_= I felt so nervous/stiff the whole time and tried to get poses right while varying them up since most of the poses I did are practically all the same with some variations lol Didn't exactly practice much before the day so that was my fault. Probably would've been easier if I had a mirror in front of me so I can see myself hahaha~ MAN I LOOKED SO FAT IN THE IMAGES I'M NOT EVEN EXAGGERATING Dx I hope he photo-shops the hell out of them lol

The make-up artist was really funny/nice, I love her. Unfortunately she didn't get the whole gyaru make-up style right so we re-did some things twice. She only used the basic department store bought lashes too which looks too natural to show up in the images except for real close-ups. I didn't bring any of my thick Japanese lashes so the make looks quite strange in the original images ^^;; Which I also had to fix in the previews above by added false lashes manually. They didn't show at all! She kinda made my eyes look more Asian than it ever was... Which was the opposite of what I wanted XD;; But it's all right. Her make skills is really nice in general, just doesn't suit me. Unless I gave her the wrong instructions and should've provided example pics of a dark-eyed look instead of the light shadows she put on me. Next time I'll probably do the make-up myself lol you can only trust yourself when it comes to age-jo/gyaru it seems.

And then just few days ago I finally went to the salon to get back that beautiful ash blond hair color :) I only do this like once a year because it costs so much to maintain that shade of blond. After the roots grow out like crazy, I just suffice with box hair dyes.


All made up and just in time for Jin Akanishi's concert next week and Vegas the week after! :D
