JTD gets!

Hello from sunny Newport Beach, CA! I've been staying over at my boyfriend's house a lot here, but finally brought my computer so I can blog properly again.

I drove back home to get 2 packages waiting for me: one from JTD and one from Yumetenbo! Since I don't like taking pictures of the Yumetenbo packages (because I always order too much), I thought I'd share what I got from my JTD package.
I ordered from the corner (Vanquish's online store), Candy Walker Shop (Jewerich and Candy Doll's online store) and Diamond Beauty.

New brand of eyelashes for gal, Eyelash Laboratory

If you have seen the last couple of month's issues of gal magazines, you'll see that a new brand of eyelashes called Eyelash Laboratory has been taking out 2 page ads to start promoting their line of eyelashes. Taking a team of gal magazine models (mostly from Popteen), they helped design and create these new eyelashes. You can see part of the process in this video that was uploaded to YouTube:

For a new brand, they already have a ton of options! All of these lashes come in 5 packs and are priced at 1050yen (tax-in). Currently they're only being sold on the Popteen store online and Don Quijote stores in Japan.

Eyelash categories:
- Cute Princess (9 styles)
- Sweet Fairy (5 styles)
- Natural Angel (3 styles)
- Rich Venus (2 styles)
- Sexy Doll (5 styles)

Some life updates! (finally)

So sorry to leave all of my lovely readers (and new followers, thank you!) in the dark about what's been going on in my life!

Around the time I declared the hiatus, I found out from the doctor that I had nasty stomach bacteria and was put on an antibiotic regime. The stomach bacteria was causing me to throw up all the time and I wasn't able to keep food down at times, all the while not losing any weight (boo). That same time I was slowing my pace down in school, and knew I needed to kick back into gear because of the fear of failing some classes. Luckily I didn't fail any classes and did better than I thought, but the stomach bacteria is still persistent and I will have to go back to the doctor soon.

This month has been busy as well, as my boyfriend moved out of my family's house into an apartment with our friend in Newport Beach, CA! We still need to network my boyfriend's room and also get desks for our computers before we will be fully settled in. That's kind of why I have been relying on my BlackBerry phone and PlayBook tablet for internet in the last few weeks.

I've been using the time since finishing up my finals to relax and get a little bit more active as well. Being in Newport Beach (specifically Balboa Peninsula) is really nice since you can walk everywhere, but also a pain if you can't find a parking spot! I also worked at the toddland warehouse sale that I advertised in my last post, which was very stressful but good experience at the same time. Toddland is the type of company I would love to work for in the future after I graduate, since it's a clothing brand that makes stuff that I really like and that people can really believe in.

I wish I could take more pictures of myself, but unfortunately I have a very limited wardrobe at my boyfriend's place!

But here's a few pictures that I've taken on my PlayBook recently~
Walking back to my boyfriend's place after going out somewhere. His place is steps from the beach so I get to see this everyday!
Couple picture, we totally both look like hot messes. After I saw this picture I had to cut my bangs because they got too long ~_~
LOTD picture from last Friday. I was wearing a tank top plus a sheer knit poncho top that has been popular for Spring. I love the necklace that I'm wearing too, it's a cat face carved out of wood!
My NYX order that I made during the 12th Anniversary Sale. Most people weren't able to make their orders through the duration of the sale, but I was lucky that one of my transactions actually went through. It's mostly blushes and eye shadows. I plan on giving away a few of the items since I had to get some duplicates.

Hopefully once I'm more stable I will get to posting again! I missed posting on here and sharing things with you all :)

Advertisement: 5/21 toddland warehouse sale (Newport Beach, CA)

I am now at my final few days of school left, so I will come back from my hiatus very soon!

But for now I would like to advertise the warehouse sale for toddland! They make rad men's clothes and accessories, perfect for the men in your life ;) They're sold nationwide at Urban Outfitters stores and are the creators of the famous cheeseburger and manstache wallets along with the world's largest gummy bear :)

Despite them being a men's label, I do actually own a few toddland pieces myself! My favorites being their hats and otter tee (which incidentally I'm wearing as I'm posting this). They are super comfortable to wear and I love wearing the otter tee over my black lace/sequin tiered skirt~
This sale is taking place in Newport Beach, CA and will have great deals on all toddland products, including new and old seasons! The sale prices will NOT be found online, so you have to go to the sale in person for these amazing deals.
