New Gets~!


I kind of wanted to wait until I caught up on my lolita day post and etc. but I'm gonna go ahead and post this anyways xD


So obviously International Lolita Day (this past Saturday) is always a very anticipated event. Me having my own tea party at Lady Mendl's, I really wanted to try and go get some accessory shopping. With that in mind, I got these~


I bought those bunches of  roses from the floral district (if you don't know, it's around 26th-28thish streets in Manhattan, mostly between 6 and 7th avenues). I meant to make actual combs out of these but not having enough time or money to waste, I just trimmed the wire stems and stuck them in my hair, which did just as good xD

These are not fabric flowers, but foam~ so I honeslty don't know how long they'll last, but the colors and the look is so realistic that I had to get them.


When I looked at the big roses, I realized that I can mod my sister's wedding shoes like I always wanted~ so one of these days I'm going to get a bunch of lace and DIY the mess out of those shoes xD they're going to look fabulous~


I also had bought this tiara comb from a local beauty store near my church~ I've always wanted a tiara for YEARS but never went through with it. A lot of Manhattan stores always sold designs I didn't like, or tried to sell them for 15-30 dollars, which wasn't really equal to their quality... but this I only got for 8.99. So glad I was able to get it!





I also had my boo Aisha ship me some new Diamond Lash bottoms for me~ I got my usual Princess Lash, and this time I also got Nudy Lash.

At first I was a bit afraid about the Nudys being too natural for my eye, but they came out looking great~ Very happy with my purchase. Now that I have three different bottom lash packs, I might actually make a video on all three of them, just to compare them as far as quality and whatnot, and trying to mix and match different looks and stuff~ I also didn't realize that the hot pink Diamond Lash packs were like 2-3 dollars less than the Purple packs xD So I plan to stock up on whatever of those I like, before I go on with my other ones~



This make shot is actually from lolita day~ excuse the band showing and stuff, it was the dead end of the night and my makeup was pretty much done. But it looks so good!



Now as far as party swag~ didn't get too much (didn't participate in the White Elephant since I was spending enough for the rest of the party), but I got a couple of sweets from Lady Mendl's, some Frilliation magnets after meeting Anna after the party, and also a little gift bag of cosmetic stuff from my Atsuko-boo Nicole~ now I can delay my much-needed cosmetics shopping LOL. She gave me a little thing of Lancome Hypnose STAR mascara, a pack of boscia pink peppermint blotting linens, a sample of Dolce & Gabbana's 'The One' fragrance, a sniff of Viva La Juicy, and some moisturizing hand cream. ♥ bawsss

Now yesterday, I was *trying* to give myself a reason to shop, and I failed xD I couldn't force myself to buy a pretty dress from F21 or anywhere (in my mind I was going "But I can get burandou with that 30 bucks!!!"), so I just went sock shopping -  w-



Some 6-pair black sock set for work.... and then I treated myself to some Betsey Johnson tights. I really liked the thigh-highs I had gotten months back, so I went ahead and got these~

Also went around to Victoria's Secret, plotting my next purchase there~ LOL

Then I went to Kinokuniya and Book-Off... the new Janurary mags don't arrive in shop till this weekend, so there wasn't much to look at that I haven't seen already. But then at Book-Off, guess what I managed to snag for A DOLLAR?



Awww yiss. Motha. fkin. Jet Set Radio Future. (plus the driving game that came with it). For a buck.

Now, I'm not at all sure if this Xbox CD will function on my 360, but either way I'm so happy to have gotten this game. Back when we had a Dreamcast, I was in love with Jet Set Radio (and does anyone remember Crazy Taxi???), and I never played JSRF, so I was trying to search Gamestop for it but none of them carried it anymore.. so imagine my face when I saw this at Book Off for the price it was. (Let me remind you: A DOLLAR. 1.09 after tax. Yissss.)

That's pretty much it for now~ I'm hoping that I won't end up spoiling myself rotten and getting myself things for Christmas, rather than for my family.. >w> ♥ but we know how hard that gets~
