Anyways, yesterday, it was me & my boyfriend's date day! Let me all present to you.....

Well, really, my boyfriend's puppy. T__T Her name is Cookie! ^__^ She's a beagle/terrier mix. I tried taking some pics of her, but she is sooooo hyper. @__@
Finally got some good ones of her! Only cuz she was tired though xD
She liked playing with that bone! It's about the same size as her x'3
Anyways, we went to Kobe restaurant. This was my outfit.
Like always, plain and boring. Pretty "normal" style. T^T ..

For start, we had a salad and small broth.
Our food being made...

There was more food, but if you've ever been to Kobe, you know that you kinda eat the food along the way.. xD

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a Bear

^ I don't know what's up with that title lol~ xD Today I went to Macy's and discovered that they were having a one day sale! :O When I went there a few weeks ago, I fell in love with this fuzzy hooded vest. I didn't buy it because it was $50. But today when I went again, guess how much it was? $19.99! :DD <3 I had to buy it.
Soooo cute! :3 It's so fuzzy and has pom pom balls and bear ears (hence the title lol). It's so warm and cuddly~ Anyways, for some of you, it may not be too late to go to Macy's! They have great deals right now~ Hurry hurry!

Trend Alert: Two-Tone Hair

I've noticed that many, many gal models these days are ditching their simple blonde hair and opting for a more dramatic two-tonal hair. This old but popular trend has caught the eye of many gals, such as Yuma Takahashi and Sakurina, for example.

While color combinations such as blonde-brown, blonde-black, and brown-black seem to be seen everywhere, bolder colors, such as pink or orange, are popular as well.

I personally love this trend on others, but hate it on myself! >__< I've tried a blonde ombré effect and I just didn't like it. What do you all think of this trend Would you try it?
(That last one's just for fun lol~ :P)

My first lens review!! *0*

I have never done a lens review before, so I'm not quite sure what to do!! D: I'll try to keep it to the point. I'll be reviewing these contact lenses from! I haven't always had a great experience with PinkyParadise, but I decided to try them again.

Firstly, I ordered Gothic 3 Tone Turquoise lenses. Here's some of the details:

Manufacturer: G&G/Dueba
Diameter : 14.5mm
Water Content : 38%
Base Curve : 8.6mm
Life Span : 1 year disposal
Shipping was alright, they arrived in about 2 weeks. They came wrapped in red styrofome wrap.

I liked the fishy cases they provided! ^w^

I wanted to have a more natural looking eye, so I chose one without a black ring around it. In the photo, the eyes seem really vibrant on the model, right?

I thought they would be a nice vibrant turqouise color. But actually, they look really bad! >__< The turquoise color is barely visible. It looks more like a teal-gray. It's very dark and mushy looking :c The color must be very see through.

Makes my eyes look like poo lol~

*My make-up looks different in some of the photos cuz I took some pics before school and some pics after, after my workout. >__< So it got ruined.*

Without flash:

With flash:

Because I thought my 14.5 mm lenses looked a little too alien-like on me, I ordered 14.0 mm lenses. However, I think these are a little too small! :/

But, they are very comfortable! ^^ I wore them for 7 hours with no problem. However, I tried to work out in them and they were a little uncomfortable. I also noticed that they slide around in my eye a little, but not too much!

In general, I would give these lenses a 6/10. The mushy color is barely noticeable and makes my eye look dark. But, they are great if you want a natural effect! I like these lenses, but I don't love them! 

*Note: all photos are unedited!*

OOTD & New Hair

Hello all! How are you?This is what I wore to school today:
Up close:
Shirt: Love Culture
Necklace: Forever 21
Jeans: Charlotte Russe
Boots: Rue 21
Quite simple, but I thought it was kind of pretty~!
Also, my curly hair arrived today! :D Here's what I ordered:
Brand: Silvi
Style: Clip-On Extension
Length/Width: 50 cm x 23 cm
Weight: 130g
Type: Synthetic
Color: Natural Black #1B

I ordered them on the 27th, so they arrived within 11 days! Shipping was FREE! Guess how much they cost?
$6.98 each!

At first I was a little skeptical because of how cheap they were. I thought there was a catch somewhere! But I ordered 2 anyways, just in case they lied about how thick the hair was. However, when they arrived, I was pleasantly surprised! This hair is really thick!

Also, I liked that it was CURLY like it's supposed to be, and not wavy. It was soft and silky, and not an obvious fake black color! <3 I also liked that it was really long like it said it would be. ^__^
Failed at taking a pic of the back of my hair... ended up with shitty mirror pic. :c
(The top of my hair is pulled up to show off the extensions.)

However, there were a couple things I didn't like.

Firstly, this hair is really HEAVY. I feel like all the weight from the hair is pulling down on my real hair, and it will fall right out.
Also, it seems like it will tangle easily. However, I find that's the case with a lot of synthetic hair! I feel like I'll have to carry a bottle of finishing spray with me when I wear this~

... but overall, I'm pleased with this hair and with the seller! They give you exactly what they say they will! I give this hair 8.5/10!

You can order here if you like! ^__^/
