I was at Markville Mall Yesterday with my boyfriend because he needed to do some shopping at Walmart for electric stiff for the store we are opening up next month. I naturally have my head too full of otaku and girly things to remotely understand what him and his electrician are talking about and needing to buy. So After eating some greek food and a yummy fruit smoothie for lunch he gave me about an hour to roam around the newly renovated mall.
If you know me, I love to shop and I love sales. So much so that I was a shopaholic for the longest time and in order for me to control my spending habit I AVOID MALLS. So I haven’t been in a mall for a while. So even this little bit of time at the Mall was exciting for me & I couldn’t resist buying a few things.
I ended up getting everything from Forever21 on sale which was nice:
The Oversized Bunny Crop Top was only $7.99 and when I tried it on it fit me just the way I wanted it to. It was not too short so It didn’t show any belly and It was loose enough to go off the shoulder a bit but not make the bunny look weird when I wore it like that. I’m such a big fan of cute graphic tees.
The silver pair of earrings were on sale for only $1.99. They are very Aztec and industrial looking which is great since most of my accessories are on the girly side. They would look great when I’m wearing Funky, rocker style stuff and I have my hair up.
The Gold Leaf earrings were $3.99 and they look really nice on. I will probably wear them with a dress or something that is more understated, ad definitely when I have my hair up. They look amazing when i feel like going a little bling bling. And despite the price they don’t look cheaply made at all. Pretty happy with that =)
I also ended up in Lush Cosmetics because reading and seeing so many scenes in anime and games about ‘taking baths’ I wanted to get something nice to put in the water for my bath. It may sound silly but it was intriguing me that everyone in the games and anime… they take baths like every night! I guess its normal over there to take a bath. Personally I don’t have time to take baths – it’s usually a rushed 5-10 minute shower and I’m flying out the door with my hair still dripping wet trying to make it to work on time (lol). And at night or after I work out It’s a 5 minute shower then I’m on the computer to do work or blog. Anyways I knew that Japanese people like to put cool stuff in their baths that do different things, so I thought I wanted to try it.
I ended up buying this Carrot Bubble bath thing from Lush which is a Limited edition Easter product I it was like $7.99 before tax or something like that and I can use it like 4 or 5 times and It is supposed to make my bath water super bubbly, smell nice and supposedly make my skin feel super soft. I cant wait to try it and I didn’t even realize until I took the picture here that the Bath Carrot matches my Shirt! LOL. It was expensive in my opinion but lush products are usually expensive. I’m sure I’ll enjoy it but, I’m going to try to find some cheaper alternatives to relaxing bath aids for myself and you all.
Anyways I’ve gotta go Workout, Write Takudo’s Main Story Review and go to work! I will see you all later!
Want to learn about Makeup FREE? These are my Top Favourite Beauty Gurus that I follow and have learned everything from!
Suzi has to be my favourite beauty & style guru. Her style of makeup, hair and fashion is very similar to what I like which means every tutorial that she comes out with I will watch in excitement. She has the AsianDoll/Punk/Gyaru style that I have always been into and I’ve always strived for. I get so much great information from her tutorials, and very honest opinions on products that I am interested in – She uses a lot of asian cosmetics, and also a lot of drugstore products. I’ve gone out to buy so many things that she has recommended that I have fallen in love with. I’ve been following her for a VERY long time and I haven’t even gotten close to ever getting bored with her channel. Her VLOG channel is amazing too very entertaining and she has the most darling fiancé. It’s great to watch her have fun in her every day life!
Sam & Nic from Pixiwoo are honestly the most knowledgeable, most skilled, and most versatile of any makeup artist I’ve seen on Youtube. They upload several times a week, with amazing in-depth tutorials and every look in itself is unique and different from all the others. They use a wide variety of products from high-end to drugstore to fit anyones budget. They also give thorough opinions on the products that they use, and suggestions for dupes etc. They also have the most sweetest personalities! I love watching their videos!
Pinay Power! This beautiful fellow Filipino goes out of her way to do very extensive reviews and trials of requested & popular products to share with her followers which I think is the greatest thing IN THE WORLD. I see one or two every week, and these are important to me because her skin type (oily combination skin) and her skin tone (beautiful Philippine Tanned skin). Not to mention she does amazing makeup tutorials that suit my skin type & colour and some really awesome but easy hair tutorials.
Holly is the Makeup Queen! She buys, owns and reviews makeup so frequently that her videos sometimes can get up to 30 min long! She is very good at voicing her opinion about products and also because she is a little more tanned, the products that she wears will complement my skin pretty well. She has a similar style in makeup and fashion as me as well and she loves neutral eye palettes and nude/slightly pink lips as much as I do. So if she’s raving about a product I will FLY OUT THE DOOR RIGHT AWAY AND GET IT! She’s got an amazing personality as well and does great up-close eye makeup tutorials.
Jen is a korean cutie with beautiful fair skin and great sense of style when it comes to makeup and clothes. She does a lot of tutorials on popular asian makeup trends and I especially love her K-Pop makeup tutorials. I also look forward to her monthly hits & misses videos because she is honest in her opinion and she has acne prone sensitive skin, which I also have trouble with. She also uses a lot of drugstore and asian makeup which I really like to see used, and reviewed so that when I go out of my way to find and buy them I will not be disappointed or waste my money. I prefer asian makeup to Western, because it suits my skin and makeup needs better.
