So this is my second time buying from GabalSpice~ I bought a brown gradation skin wave extension wig from them and I love it! It’s so realistic looking it’s amazing. Customer service is very prompt and helpful.
I don’t know what this is but I just made it because I was hungry. XD
The broth was chicken broth with cinnamon and star anise.
It had sauteed shitake mushrooms with soy sauce, mirin, and sugar.
I separated the egg, with the egg white mixed in the broth and the yolk shaped into a 6 pointed star.
Those were the greens of scallions on the side and the noodle was just plain spaghetti noodles since I didn’t have any rice noodles ;<
I went to the mall with my friend today to treat her to some Godiva Chocolate and we ended up window shopping. I recently just bought red velvet looking leggings and I wanted to find something to match it. I found the black skirt on the left and wanted to try it on, but I needed to find a top to go along with it. I picked the white top because it looked interesting and turns out I liked the white top better than I did the skirts I found. lol I didn’t buy it, but I think I might go back to the store and buy it. XD
Please excuse my red socks. >3<
Momo Con finally arrived for me on March 8!! I was so ecstatic. Only problem was, this was the first time I’ve ever not worn a cosplay. I actually bought one of my cosplays this time, but turns out it wouldn’t be finished until 4 months later. So I panicked and tried to find a alternative. Turns out my friends were cosplaying from K Project so I jumped on the bandwagon and decided to go as Neko. Hilariously enough, my fabric didn’t arrive on time, so I went cosplayless anyways. -sighs- Instead on Friday and Saturday I wore my normal clothes and Sunday I went sweet lolita. Good thing my “normal” clothes isn’t particularly normal in itself. So it all worked out.
I also got to meet all my friends again and also got to meet my boyfriend again. >3< We had such a fun time. I would say this con was mostly just hanging out with friends. It was nice to just relax and not worry about cosplay once in a while. XD
Yes yes, two posts in a day! Trying to catch up. lol This was what I wore.
Hubby and I~
I am currently enrolled in a Costume Design Course for making corsets!!! I already finished making one corset for a theater production~ A lot more work than I expected, especially with grommets. XD
But now we get to choose our own corset we want to make for ourselves; I am so excited! *.*
I wanted to do a review on a Japanese shopping service I recently purchased from here.
My friends decided to buy me this outfit from the Japanese store Putumayo for my birthday, so they all just forwarded me the money so I could go ahead and buy it online. Sadly, this store doesn’t have an English site, and doesn’t ship internationally, so I had to find a shopping service. I stumbled across rainbowholic and the owner of the page Kaila. I emailed her my order and she replied back to me shortly after. She made sure everything was correct before the order was placed and she is very friendly.
Kaila would tell me when she had received my money, when she placed the order, when it arrived at her doorsteps, and when she had shipped it out. She also provided me a tracking number for my package and told me it would arrive in 4-7 days. EMS shipping was used, and with my experience with EMS, I always got my package in 3 days, and to my delight, it was at my doorsteps in three days!
Packaged with rainbow deco tape~ XD
It says “otanjoubi omedetou gozaimasu”; Kaila was nice enough to write a small birthday note to me after I mentioned it to her! >3< Thank you!
The package was nicely wrapped in bubble wrap.
Wahh, she was even nicer to include a bunch of Japanese goodies as well! I thought the bag was too cute, and I really liked the almond chocolate sweets [behind the bag of chips].
This is her shop’s business card, I thought it was pretty. XDD Keeping the card definitely.
AND…..This is what I bought! A shirt and earrings from Putumayo~ I loved them soo much!
My first clothing item for my future Putumayo collection! ;D
This was the earring, couldn’t resist not getting them. No pictures of the shirt yet, but I will have some soon!
All in all, I would definitely use rainbowholic’s shopping service again. Really great experience, and you have NO IDEA how much I jumped today when I received my packages. lol
I’ve pretty much finished, well almost, finished my Flandre outfit but now I have to make Inori’s dress. I thought it was going to be simple, so I make a mock up and I’m getting ready to sew and what not to find out there’s much more to a simple dress. I look back on my reference again and she has small details here and there that I would have to incorporate in the pattern myself. More modifying again. lol But I’m now on a small hiatus from sewing since I have tests this week and I’m scared for my scores. To relieve stress, I started drawing again. I was never a good artist, but I liked to doodle for fun. A friend wanted to do an art trade with me so I decided to draw a quick sketch.
*NOTE* I am only the artist. I take no credit for the design. This is my friend milkuro@gaiaonline’s OC.
So school has started and there’s hardly any time for me to sew now since I attend to school and work two jobs. Dx As far as sewing goes, I’m in a costume design class so I’m really looking forward to that class!
I went out to the mall on the way from buying fabric for my Inori outfit and ended up buying more clothes…
That’s what I wore to school…reminder to not wear heels. Oh dear, my feet died. DX
And new clothes!!
I can’t stay on a set style can I? One moment I’m wearing pink and frilly things, next thing you know it’s all black. .-.
OPPAN GANGNAM STYLE. Enough said. lol Yea friend and I wanted to try and learn this dance. We video recorded it but we sucked so badly so I just made it into screenshots instead. XD
