Fooling around




~New profile pic~

Had my interview with Victoria's Secret on Thursday~
I dressed pretty nice, but once I got home I started drawing on my face

A lot of times I feel that my most favorite makeup shots are when I'm lounging in boredom, rather than when I actually dress up and go out with friends = w=




Pedobear bait




"Master Plan" face

Valentine's Day~




Since my birthday I haven't been outside at all. Besides yoga once a week with Mei, and some errand-running locally, I haven't been spending money at all (or at least not trying to = w=)... this is what happens when you're broke and owing money for stuff LOL

Kind of sucks that I've been missing out on things like church for 3 weeks but I tend to throw the most money towards either eating, transportation or donating to the church.. so I had to cut myself off from doing that to save... but once I start making money again, I'll just give tenfold of what I usually do xD In the meantime I'm reading the bible every night..

Of course, me "saving money" didn't stop me from blowing 30 dollars on magazines LOL fucking Ageha = A=


January 2011 issue



March 2011



And (the most expensive) kimono special xD



I don't know what's wrong with me when it comes to Ageha magazines... I am absolutely obsessed with them, I scour Book-Off, Kinokuniya, and Mitsuwa when they have special sales just to see if they ever get an older issue... I'm pretty sure I have like, almost every issue between 2009 to now... that's at least 30 mags x___x one day I'll probably stack all of the ones I have to see if I could make a tower out of them LOL
And then of course I'm planning to buy all the old ones I missed...
Told you I was obsessed.


Lately I've been observing the way Satomi Yakuwa does her eyes... not so much as the whole thing as the way she applies her liner... I know fake lashes give a different look but the way the models apply their liner makes them more distinct and different from one another.

I always looked at Sayaka Araki when it came to makeup, but I'd like to try out different looks as well. I liked Hina no Riku's style, but then she magically disappeared (guessing that maybe she either a) got a new blog on another site or b) she quit the porn industry). Satomin's is similar but it's softer which for work and stuff would be much better.



I need a new eyeliner brush so I can start using my gel liner again... pencil + pen just aren't working for me anymore = w=

Haven't came around to experiment sujimori styling my hair again.... my hair desperately needs a new touchup before I dare try doing anything special to it. LOL But it'll be hard for me, especially since NYC is still in some pretty dry weather.. don't need my hair to fall out again x_x



Anyways, but besides staying in all day/going to yoga/missing church/etc, of course I blew my money on Valentine's day. Didn't do anything for my... person in which I desire affection from LOL but! I did visit him while he was working.

Me and Mei went to Applebee's >:3



moi~



Mei


My mudslide = w= needed more booze in it though


Mei had gotten this spinach salad w/ shrimp which was too good... we don't know what kind of sauce they put on it but it was nice and sweet hnnghhhh. I know it had like red/sweet onions in there but I don't know what else. Other than that, I just got a philly burger while she got the Bourbon Street steak.

There were.. one too many acts of niggadom in that restaurant. You had some crackhead chick nearby yelling on her phone with her boyfriend or ~whoever~, yelling like "STOP HARASSING ME" blahblahblah.. how about you just hang up the dang phone and turn it off. After a while trick stumbled her ass in the bathroom with her nappy hair = w= I don't understand why people like that even come into a restaurant like that..

Iono, and then you had this other group next to us who were dissatisfied with whatever food they were trying to get.. but they were much more quiet about it. But then on the other side of the restaurant, you had these three broads who decide to provide even more entertainment, yelling and saying this that and the third mad loud when the people was trying to work out the problem.. or whatever. Anywho, then one of managers or whatever went over to them and started sass the chicks back and they just weren't stopping... and then chicks were still going on outside of the place like.. okay = w= It was a good laugh though. But it was hella annoying, especially for the people surrounding them.

But the lesson to that? Don't go to an Applebee's in the middle of Bed Stuy for top-notch quality service LOL. Go to Manhattan for that. It was whatever with us, we got our food and our laugh lololo


I did the bow-hair, since it was pretty windy that night = w= I had to maneuver some way for my bangs to get covered with my scarf so they didn't get completely raped... thankfully they stayed together at the end. He said he liked this hairstyle the best too, so~ I decided it was the best choice at the moment LOL

Today's his birthday... but I don't have anything for him ; w; There was an outfit set I had in mind to get him, but none of the Zaras had the damn thing = A= augh, oh well..

But now that V-day is out the way, there's nothing else special for me to look forward to (other than the Final Fantasy concert on Apr 1st, if I get a ticket >A>;;) until Easter and Pentecost, so hopefully these next two months will be pretty chill....


edit: Got a call back from one of the Victoria's Secret ;____; Got an interview on Thursday. I'm sooo happy, it's my first response from anyone so far, I hope I get ittttt. WISH ME LUCK

21st birthday~ photo post



Sooooo I'm finally 21. FINALLY. Everyone kept on asking me how I feel, but I don't feel any different lololo. Though I'm sure sooner or later I'll throw my back out, get Rheumatoid Arthritis, etc...


Anyways. I stayed over my bby Laura's dorm for the night, right after some last minute shopping at Zara.. got a dress I ended up not liking too much xD

I originally wanted this dress...




But for whatever reason, I checked more than HALF of the stores in the city and they did not have this dress at all :| The only stores I didn't check was the one on 66th on the west side, 34th street and the SoHo store... and I swear to God, if I ever go to any one of those stores and the dress is there, I am going to flip a shit E____E Because I gave up and took the tag off the dress I -did- end up getting, so now I obv can't return it. (though if I ever found this dress anyways I'd buy it = w=)

So I ended up getting this dress..





Laura grabbing my ass = w= I love you too, bby.

The dress itself is -nice-, -okay-, not so much for church (which is why I was buying the dress). The top was way too drape-y, I have a thing against kimono-styled stops and besides the fact that my ass totally filled the crap out of this dress, the top area was too big. Oh, and it was a bit short. So it was a problem for me, I felt kind of insecure when I wore it out. (This is why I'll stick with loli when it comes to church. No matter how much of an eyesore I end up looking = A=)




Laura camwhoring with her dyed bangs. She was also taking snaps of my ass = w= which will not be posted.



Unfortunately my day started off with me waking from a dream about my father.. :| I stopped talking to him like 5 years ago and the dream was just a painful reminder of the crap I'd probably be going through now if I still talked to him. I admit I do miss him but imo his bullcrap would've been more damaging.

Laura's little dorm living room. Sat in there until the sun rose.

Mmmmm them knaps = w= morning hair + new growth blah

I went to IHOP for breakfast while Laura went to her morning class~
French vanille coffee
Their Cinn-A-Stack pancakes. God this thing was a not-sure-if-want. It was sooo sweet and my brain started crashing halfway through eating this. I'm pretty sure I'm halfway down the road to Diabeetus thanks to this pancake. It was good as fawk though

After searching more Zaras for the dress I wanted (with no success), visiting a sister from church, getting macarons from MacaronCafe (the guy gave me 3 free ones with a box of 6 for my bday ; w;), getting my free gifts + samples from Sephora and getting lost in a hunt for Nakano hair wax, I made it back to Laura's place super late to get ready to go to Rose House and meet up with the other lolis.

For whatever reason this chick decided to relax during the 2 hrs waiting for me instead of getting ready.. and we were hella late LOL


Totally regretted forgetting my circle lenses at home. LAURA'S EYESSSS FFFFF


When we got there we were greeted by the International Club of Mustaches.




Susan thought she was super special with her Confucius 'stache.


Alex exercising her usual creeping tendencies

I don't know why we didn't take a full body shot together, but since we didn't get our Little Bear Cafe print, we just ended up twinning polkadots. Her lavender x pink and me blue x white.

Afterwards the waitress moved us because our group got so huge. = w= Huge migration to the private room, with our food and tea and stuff. blah





After Rose House I went home... while everyone else went drinking LOL. I had church in the morning, cakes to bake and etc.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



How my hair ended up after fixing it for chuuuuch the next day. (read: before the grubby hands of little children and peers killed it = w= ) This is probably the closest I've ever gotten to sujimori. I need a bigger barrel and more time to learn to control the direction of my curls. But it came out pretty nice with the outfit and stuff. ((You should also guess how much of a pain it was to comb it back straight afterwards.))

Better view of how I tried to cover up = A= And also a friendly reminder to self to clean my mirror.

I didn't do my eye makeup heavier because I was going to church, of course.



Diamond, the main hair rapist. Who also stole my camera to camwhore.

But it's ok, I love her :3




That day ended on a... odd note though, depressing. I've been sleeping all day for the past 2-3 days, and now I'm just ready to get over everything. Hopefully the ice in the city will be cleared tomorrow or Friday, then I'm going to force myself to get up and apply to more jobs. Now that I'm 21 I can finally get into whatever clubs I want, and already I'm missing 2 events I'm too broke to go to = w= that's obviously not gonna fly.
