About Me

Hello, my name is Dominique (aka D~tan) and I'm currently a student at Concordia University, Irvine. I'm 23 years old and I reside in Orange County, CA. This blog is going to be a multi-purpose one with posts about makeup, fashion, life, events and food.
A few facts about me:
- I am in a dedicated relationship with my boyfriend Tony, and we've been dating since 11/04/08.
- I have been dancing ParaPara for over 10 years, my ParaPara anniversary is 4/18/01. I have learned probably around 1500ish routines through out the years, although I can't say I remember them all 100%.
- I am a member of Disco NRG, which is a ParaPara circle dedicated to spreading ParaPara information through out the world.
- I became interested in gal during the Yamanba era of the early 2000's. I incorporated gal with my Pop & Cute style around 2005, and fully transitioned into gal in 2007.
- I'm a Business Marketing major. If it sounds like I'm trying to sell things to you, I probably am or don't do it on purpose.
- I like eating food. Especially from food trucks, my favorites are The Lime Truck, Dos Chinos and Dogzilla.
- I am a serious Eurobeat/Hyper Techno CD collector. I can safely say I have one of the largest physical collections outside of Japan.
- False eyelashes is one of my obsessions, and I probably own way too many pairs for my own good.
- I like helping people, so I hope I'm helping you with my posts!

I would like to mention that I do not photoshop my photos, except for minor cropping and color correction. I don't believe in photoshopping my face since I want the makeup to speak for itself. What you see is what you get.
