So I graduated from university...

It's been awhile since I've made a post since I've had a turbulent past few months working in Hong Kong, going to Tokyo for vacation and then coming home and being super jetlagged! All of this was in preparation for a big moment in my life: graduating from university!

 Of course I had to look fabulous, and walk down in equally as fabulous shoes!

Not dead! But...

Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates, but it's with a good reason. During a rainstorm my computer got damaged and is no longer usable. I just purchased a new laptop and will get it shipped from the US so I will have it within the next week or so. Just wanted to update you guys quickly since I'm at work.

Going around Tsim Sha Tsui~

Although I had gone to Tsim Sha Tsui the day before with my mom's best friend, my friend from the ParaPara community here in Hong Kong wanted to take me around the area as well. I have been talking to him online for about 10 years, so it was really nice to finally meet him in real life!

Festival Walk, Kowloon Tong

I wanted to make a post about the mall that's walking distance from my apartment: Festival Walk! It's a major mall featuring many Western stores and a large food court. It's also across the street from a university, so you'll see a lot of overseas students shopping and eating there. My favorite part of being here in Hong Kong is that you can speak English almost everywhere you go!

My apartment in Hong Kong

Hey everyone! I made it safe to Hong Kong a few days ago, and have just finished unpacking all of my belongings and have gotten settled in. I'm staying in the Kowloon Tong area of Hong Kong and live within a 5-10 minute walk from Festival Walk. I haven't explored too much with public transportation yet, but will very soon so expect some more updates regarding shopping and such in the future. For this post I'd like to show you guys the apartment I'm staying in while I'm here.

Update and possible hiatus?

Hey everyone! Sorry for being MIA for the past month. After I got back from my trip in NYC I became really ill and only just recovering from it. I had a really violent flu and sinus infection.

As some of you know, I will be leaving to stay in Hong Kong for a month and then I will be in Japan for 10 days. I am leaving this Sunday! I have heard Blogger has some restrictions in HK/China, so there is a chance I won't be able to blog while I am abroad. I will of course use my Tumblr while I am away in the case I don't have time for longer blog posts, so please follow me there if you want to see quick glimpses into what I'm up to!

Anyone that's interested in my custom Diamond Lash packs, please inquire and pay for them by this Friday, 3/15, in order to guarantee you will have your lashes before I leave!

For those that have been to Hong Kong, please recommend some places for me to check out! I got some recommendations from Rin already, but if anyone else knows any gyaru specific clothing/shoes and beauty stores... let me know! :)

Valentine's Day

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day (or Singles Awareness Day if you're single). I had a wonderful time, and also just found out very good news. My internship in Hong Kong was accepted, so I will be leaving for Hong Kong in a few weeks and stay for a month. I will also be heading to NYC next weekend to hang out with my friends as well, so I have some busy times ahead!

In the day time I had an appointment to go shopping for OBEY Clothing's Spring '13 line at their warehouse. It has its perk being a former intern at times ;) At night, Tony and I had dinner reservations (of course) and decided to eat at The Globe in Garden Grove. It's a Belgian restaurant that has a regular menu and a monthly menu depending on what country they want to create a special menu on.

I'm very happy with the way my look turned out overall! I just wanted some natural looking waves for my hair, and I think I succeeded with that.

FOTD (I wore this all day):

Circle lens review: EOS New Adult Brown

I made an order recently with for some more "natural"-esque everyday lenses, since I have an opportunity to do an internship in Hong Kong very soon. I'm finding out this week whether I'm going or not, so I'm crossing my fingers!

So I tried out being blonde...

I've been looking at a lot of Sakurina pictures the last couple of days and made the plunge and purchased a blonde wig. I decided to get one that was particularly golden blonde in color to play better with my skin tone since I'm warm toned. So did it work out for me?

Important information regarding Diamond Lash Custom Packs

Hello everyone!

I know a fair amount of my visitors come inquiring about my Diamond Lash Custom Packs, so I would like to announce some important things.
First off, from 2/1/13-2/18/13, anyone who orders 5 or more pairs of Diamond Lash will be eligible for a 10% discount! So definitely plan to order some while supplies last.
Secondly, this part is pretty much bad news overall. The US Postal System raised prices dramatically for my overseas customers, so prices have gone from $4 shipping to $7 for 1-2 packs and $10 for 3-5 packs. This is so unfortunate because I know I have many overseas customers! US Customers aren't too negatively impacted, but for those who order more than 2 packs will see an increase in each additional pack from .50 cents to $1.

Review + Swatches: Lime Crime Opaque Lipsticks

This post was requested by Lolo! Since there are a lot of mixed reviews for Lime Crime, I'll definitely post an honest review along with lip swatches for the lipsticks I own from them.

Review: SKINFOOD Black Sugar Cleansing Oil

Since I've been on a cleansing oil kick I decided to get one from SKINFOOD, since they have an official store where I live. It's the cheapest one they have, and actually I'm in love with it!

♥ Valentines Day Giveaway ♥

I haven't done a giveaway in awhile, so I decided that it was time for one! This time around it's for Valentines Day with a dolly theme to it.

IMATS 2013 Event Report & Gets

It wasn't too long ago since the last IMATS, but they made it earlier starting with this year so I went again! I got my ticket a month in advance, but didn't have quite as pleasant of a time as last years event. I felt that too many people were let in and because they switched the dates there were many vendors that usually attend but didn't, like NYX Cosmetics. I shouldn't complain too much though, because I got there early enough to get to almost all of the vendors I wanted to buy from and got out of there within 3 hours!

My FOTD (sorry the lighting is washed out, it was 6am!):

Review + Tutorial: SKINFOOD Peach Sake Pore BB Cream in #5 Honey Beige

I should be very fortunate that SKINFOOD's US office is located where I live, because we also have a retail store and some special things not available in other stores. One of their most famous products is their Peach Sake BB Cream that is originally offered in only 2 shades, but in-store they have 5 or 6 shades that range from very light to dark toned skin! I bought it immediately when I saw the extended shade range and picked up my perfect shade, #5 Honey Beige. So what do I think of this Korean BB Cream?

Review: FANCL Mild Cleansing Oil

Previously I wrote a review for DHC's Mild Touch Cleansing Oil, but since then I have tried out more cleansing oils and have become addicted to them! I currently have a rotation of 5 different cleansing oils right now at all different price points, so I will definitely do a review of all of them.

When I spotted FANCL's Mild Cleansing Oil at the checkout counter at my local Mitsuwa Marketplace, I decided to buy it!

Makeup tutorial featuring Smashbox x Curtis Kulig's Love Me Eyeshadow Palette in Entice Me

I'm finally back on the internet! It has been a painful half week without internet, but I have been productive in household chores so I guess it wasn't too terrible. While I was gone from the internet I decided to make a makeup tutorial featuring one of the new Smashbox x Curtis Kulig Spring 2013 Love Me Eyeshadow palettes in Entice Me!

I originally fell in love with Curtis Kulig's Love Me print after interning at OBEY Clothing and getting to work with their Spring 2012 Love Me collection. So I was very excited when Smashbox announced their partnership with him!

How gorgeous is the packaging? I want the rest of the collection but might wait until IMATS Los Angeles to see if the Smashbox @ Naimies booth will have it :) The tutorial is after the jump!

New Years in Las Vegas

Happy belated New Years 2013 to everyone! I've been sick since returning from my trip but I would love to share some photos with my readers.

I usually go to Vegas every year for New Years, since my mom plays at casinos and we always stay for free. This trip was more special because Alex, one of my dearest friends from Canada, came to visit! Since it was his first time there, we spent a lot of time on the Las Vegas Strip since he's a tourist.

There aren't too many pictures, since we spent a lot of the time drinking and not being sober! Even if I did have photos during that time I wouldn't want to show anyone unless it was really funny.
