Happie Nuts/EGG-Style Look


Hey guys! I haven't posted any recent style photos and there's been little changes. Of course the purple hair and my blonde is now a lighter ash. I also tried out a new makeup style here inspired by Sakurina and Nino! ;D I haven't done the whole drawing the bottom eyeliner lower thing to make your eyes appear bigger so I tried and definitely loving the results~ It's also my first time trying to contour my nose (successfully) if you even noticed ^^;;

New Purple Streaks - Joico's Intensity Color

 

Hi readers~ If you've been on my Twitter or Facebook page, you'd know that I had recently dyed my hair purple ^-^ Just some strands underneath all my main hair color. I've been meaning to get it multicolored streaked like this:


That's my ultimate goal! So I went on Sally's and ordered some colors from Ion Brilliance with the bleach since my current blonde hair isn't light enough apparently for the pinks/blues/greens to be pastel. I have to dye it to a white platinum blonde O_O!! But while that's in pending with shipping, I got bored of course and decided to just go ahead and use my mom's tubes of hair dye when she had it purple before. And voila, this was the result. I used Joico's Color Intensity for this.  The purple is pretty vibrant and some parts are already fading into a silvery color instead of the lilac/lavender I was looking for since my blonde is a bit too dark. But it was a fun experiment. Surprisingly I got rave reviews lol

I think I will add on the other colors once it arrives to see what they look like on my ash blonde first before dyeing it white.

Joico is highly recommended for anyone who plans to try it out. It doesn't smell that strong at all. Smells nice actually and doesn't have any burning sensation. The colors really stick as long as you continue to just use conditioner on your hair since shampoo really washes it out. But since I like the faded washed out look, I'm using shampoo every now and then. Wouldn't really mind if the streaks came out silver though, I think that would look cool!

SPONSORED ~ EOS Violet Daisy Series - Lens Review (Mukuchu)




Usage Modality:  One Year Disposable
BC:  8.8 mm
DIA:  14.8 mm
Water content:  38%


Comfort: As with all EOS lenses that I've had in the past, these ones were also quite comfortable. The left one was ok, the right one had a little sharp edge at first that quickly went away after a few seconds.

★★★★
Color & Enlargement: The color isn't usually what I'd pick, cuz I'm not that big a fan of purple contacts (although it matches the hair color that I currently dyed). Up close, both design and color are very bold and looks similar to the King Barbie series by Sakurina; so it's very vibrant and shows up well even on dark eyes. At the same time the color can seem subtle when you're a distance away like in the photo I took above. It can just almost pass off as another color.
★★★★
 

 Hope you also like my new make-up style! ^^ It's been awhile since I've used really dark colors and black eyeshadow. Please also bear with me with the horrifying quality, my camera is broken as mentioned in the last post so right now I'm just using my 8.1 MP Japanese camera phone Dx as opposed to the fuzzy Itouch one. My new camera should be arriving in 2 weeks or so! ^o^

Second Trip to California~


Wow, now that I'm back on track and recovering from a tiring vacation, I can now blog about it! Last week my boyfriend and I drove down to Cali for the summer trip. We stayed in San Francisco for a night and went straight to LA. Driving was BRUTAL. I hated it. So much. With a passion lol. And I didn't even drive XDDD so that being said, everyone should feel bad for my bf. Considering it's a 22hr transport from here in Canada to down there. Usually that would take at least two people to switch back and forth but I don't have a license (until now) so... x3

We drove for 6hrs at first, hoping to pass through Washington and once we got to Oregon we TRIED sleeping in the car for a bit. Like, really a bit. It got SO cold and the car for uncomfortable cuz we we're just using a regular car, not some van or truck. Then we continued straight onto to San Francisco and arrived early afternoon. James' leg was literally dying, I felt so bad ;_; But going through WA and OR wasn't bad... It's California. HOLY HELL once we reached there it was blazing hot. 8hrs in the car to reach Anaheim. No AC. Sun directly on me. I wanted to die lol. I came back from the trip looking like a Mexican and most of the tanning was from being in the car! Then we decided to hit traffic once we were so close to the hotel. Dx Just ugh... No more trips to hot places in the summer haha~

But enough of all that lol here I will show you some pics of my trip when meeting with my beautiful little sis, Cindy and the Cali gals.
