I finally caved in, so please add my Tumblr if you please :D

I will be going home tonight and heading out to NYC on Friday, so hopefully I can make a few posts there or before I leave~

Thursday at San Diego Comic Con

Comic Con tickets are hard to come by, but luckily my boyfriend's brother was able to get me a ticket for one day (Thursday). Hopefully next year I'll get a 4 day pass, but we'll see!

I only had a few objectives, which were the following:
- Get the KidRobot figure for Mysterion (South Park) and a couple of the Street Fighter figures for my boyfriend.
- Go to the Pee Wee Herman, Street Fighter x Tekken and Penn & Teller panels.

I have a couple of pictures from when I went, but not too much since they're mostly on the SLR... which was left by my boyfriend in his mom's car! But I'll start with a picture of a burned down trailer on the way to the convention (on Pacific Coast Highway).

What is an "American face"? - Ranzuki 8/11

I was flipping through my newest issue of Ranzuki and found this interesting article that included face shading for different sized heads. This article features Natsumi Saito and she shows how she tries to achieve an "American face". From shading her face to make it look small, shading her nose, doing her eye makeup/lenses and even massaging her face to make it appear smaller. Definitely a must read/see for people who are having a hard time with knowing how to contour their face!

Skin Food's first US Store - Irvine, CA

Being a fan of Asian cosmetics, the brand Skinfood isn't news to me. However, it is news that they decided to open up their first US store in Irvine, CA, which is where I live! It is located at Irvine Spectrum next to Charlotte Russe. I took sneaky pictures of the store with my BlackBerry PlayBook, since my camera battery decided to die that day.

NKOTBSB - 7/1 & 7/6

I try not to make it a secret that I'm a teenybopper, so when I found out New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys were doing a collaboration tour together it was like a dream come true! I was fortunate enough to go to their 2 concerts in my area with my wonderful best friend in the world :)

What's in my makeup bag!

I always wanted to do one of these posts, so I finally got down to it and took pictures of what I normally use everyday (although some products depend on what mood I'm in). I don't have a proper makeup case (most of my other makeup is in a shoebox right now lol) but this will do~
Jonas Brothers VIP bag from their 2010 Summer tour and a Pokemon pencil case :3

Long time no post! AX ParaPara Panel recap☆

Sorry for the lack of posts, I wanted to entertain Jim (who did the male circle lens review below) while he was here so I didn't want to spend too much time blogging!

A couple of notes:
- My summer giveaway ended on 6/30 with the winner being Wen, so congrats to her! The next giveaway will be coming up around October/November. :) I have one of the prizes already and it is different than the usual prizes~

- I would love to do a FAQ post in the future, so if you want to ask me questions please drop them off at my formspring page. Feel free to send them anonymously if you don't want your name on here. :)

- ParaPara fans, the Disco NRG site will be up and running soon! We are moving hosts and are currently setting it up right now. Keep up to date with us by checking our Twitter and Facebook pages.

- I will be heading to NYC from 7/29-8/4. I go every year so it's no different, mainly to film an upcoming Disco NRG DVD! If anyone wants to meet up I will try to see if I can make time for it. Or if anyone wants to give me some store recommendations please do so as well!

ParaPara Dancing 101 Panel Recap:
For anyone that came to my panel, thank you very much for coming! I know a couple of girls came up to me after the panel saying they knew me from everyday_gyaru and my blog but don't comment... so get to it! lol

I could only find one video from the panel, but if you know anyone who went that has one PLEASE tell them to upload it!! In case you're wondering, the song is "I Won't Fall Apart" by Jager, which you can buy on iTunes.

Male circle lens review: EOS Adult Series Grey from mukuCHU (Guest review)

Today I have a guest review from my good friend Jim, who is from my circle Disco NRG and we're ParaPara partners. I have previously done a review for the toric version of these, and recommended this for him since he wanted something very natural looking. These lenses are from mukuCHU and require a review, but were purchased by me.
