Blog Challenge- Beach Jewelry!

 Hi there! 

Last night, I started my blog challenge with the beach accessory prompt! Since it's summer I've been really into beach things lately, so I was really excited to make some bracelets! 

I've never used cowrie shells in jewelry before, so I'm really happy with how that bracelet turned out! It was a little confusing to make because you have to tie knots in a certain way to make the shells stay, and I forgot to leave a loop at the end to make it so that you could wear it. So instead I found the flower clasp in my jewelry supplies and used that! 

Today's co*de and make (✿◠‿◠)

I tried to do something kind of like these gals: 

But I think I need to blend out the lower liner a little less next time! I'm actually getting the newest Ageha in the mail tomorrow so I'm hoping there will be a few more closeups of looks like this!!

I felt really cute today (▰˘◡˘▰) I recently got this jacket since my office is really cold and a lot of my dressier shirts are tank tops. I have a regular jean jacket too but I was afraid of all that denim together. Tomorrow, I might go to a local arts festival! I have a lot of chores and grad school things to get done too, so I don't know when I'll get to do the next prompt from my challenge! If you missed it, the challenge is on my instagram as well as my last post! 

See you soon (✿◠‿◠)

Office Co*de and Blog Challenge

 Hey there (◠‿◠✿)

Today I finally got to wear this super cute co*de I've been thinking about for a long time!! 

shoes are Betsey Johnson
I felt so cute and summery! I had a few accidents though ●︿● First, my shoes even though they're SO CUTE, cut my feet. Then I went outside to eat lunch at work and I sat on those gross tiny red bugs and they stained my skirt o(╥﹏╥)o Luckily the bathroom had a stain stick and I could fix it!  I didn't feel super good about my makeup today either but that's ok, because I felt so pretty in my dress ≧◡≦

Blog Challenge (✿◠‿◠) 

I've been wanting to get back to blogging and crafting, so I thought I would combine those and make myself a blog challenge!! I just made it for my own fun, but if you are inspired by it feel free to take part and use the list too! ♥‿♥ I'm not doing it 7 straight days, hopefully I'll do one a week! And probably out of order too, lol. I'm hoping by the end of it I'll feel really accomplished and have cute decorations for my new apartment!

Most of these are inspired by supplies I have and need to use up (⊙︿⊙✿) Maybe "using up all the stuff you're hoarding" can be the 8th challenge, lol. 

That's it for today, see you soon!

Girl's Day

 Hey there (✿◠‿◠)

Today my friend and I explored the city and then drove out to the discount mall! Can you tell we like shopping? ❀‿❀

Last night I put on a tan, and I decided to wear this neon shirt since I thought it would look super good when I'm tan! It was 90 degrees F today 〴⋋_⋌〵 which is so much hotter than it usually is, even during the summer. 

This was my make for the day! I love being tan, I feel like I look so summery. ★~(◡‿◡✿) I've been trying out thicker eyeliner like I've seen Nana and some other girls from Egg and Nuts doing. I think it turned out really cute! I was so surprised my makeup didn't melt or smudge at alllll even though we were outside in the heat! 

Anyways, we explored the area of the city I just moved to! Even though I have worked here a few summers, I had to drive in from about 40 minutes away so I never got to walk around. There's some interesting shops and restaurants around, and I think I'll want to go back soon! I really liked the bakery I got this macaron from, and we got tea from a cafe next door! 

These are some of the accessories I bought ♥‿♥ I've been looking for a sunhat for a while, and I'm excited to coord it in the future! 

I didn't get a picture, but there were 2 Asian grocery stores! I was super excited by all the variety, and they're pretty close too! I think I can save a lot of money by shopping there instead of the larger regular grocery stores. I also got some soy sauce dishes that I'm super excited to use!

Today, the woman who has the litter of kittens I'm adopting from sent me this! My kitten taking a nap with her mom (◠‿◠✿)

That's all for tonight! I hope I'll blog again soon! 

Recent Gets

 Hey there (✿◠‿◠)

Today I wanted to FINALLY update you on some of the things I bought recently! I went to a local store that has a lot of kawaii things, it's mostly stationary and plushies but they sometimes have lashes and accessories too (✿ ♥‿♥)

I've never tried bottom lashes so I decided to try these out!

I'm going to add these to my Disney Charm bracelet ≧◡≦

I really want to start writing letters to my friends ≧◡≦ so I'm hoping these will motivate me 

I've had my eye on this Hello Kitty for such a longgggg time and I'm so happy I finally bought her! I have her on my desk at work and it makes me so happy. 

Ok I think this is my favorite thing, maybe only tied with the Hello Kitty. By now you've probably seen that I'm Gal and Dino's #1 fan, and I'm so happy to have another piece of merch especially since I can display it at work! (✿◠‿◠)

These are some things I got at TJMaxx! 

I was super excited to find this! I'm so happy that Juicy is back ♥‿♥

You can't see it very well here, but this has leopard print! I haven't decided how i'm going to coord it yet though.

Swimming Code and tanning

 Hey There! 

Today I went home to my parents' house to swim and have a picnic since some of my extended family was in town! It was SUPER HOT here, like almost 90 F/32 C (i think lol).  But I enjoyed being outside since I don't normally get to since I work inside a building with only frosted windows ●︿●

I was really excited to wear my Juicy Couture tank, I found it on Mercari US a few months ago and until now it's been too cold to wear it! I used my Mamegoma purse to carry my bathing suit, and I have cute sandals from Kate Spade. The jewelry I wore has been my favorite recently, I think I wore those earrings 3 times this week ≧◡≦ 

Something else I've been into lately is self tanning! (✿ ♥‿♥)

My skin burns really easily unless I wear really protective sunscreen, so I've never seen myself with a tan! I was nervous about it, but other than a few problems on my knuckles it turned out SO WELL. It's hard to read from the picture, but I've been using Tanologist foam in Light and their Day Glow serum that is a gradual tan for your face. I don't really think it's gradual, at least not on my skin, so I think the bottle will last a long time! Next time I might try the medium foam though, because i've been using 2 coats of light. In between tans, I've been using the Bondi Sands gradual tanning milk in the blue bottle. I don't think it does a ton but it does really even out any weird areas during the week! Tanning has made me feel so confident and SO Gal. (◕‿◕✿)

That's it for tonight! It's so late here, almost 2AM so I need to go to sleep! Tomorrow I'm seeing my friend and we're going shopping.

New Kitten

 Hey there! I missed you! 

I've really missed blogging recently, and there's so many posts I want to write! For now I just wanted to write a short post about something SUPER EXCITING. I'm getting a kitten! 

I've always wanted a cat, but since my mom is allergic we never had one! Growing up we always had dogs, which I love almost as much. But there's just always been something about cats that I love (✿◠‿◠) I haven't decided on a name for her yet, but I think I like Marie the best so far, especially because of how much I love Aristocats. ♥‿♥ I knew we were meant to be together because she was so happy to sit in my lap the whole time, and that's really what I was hoping for in a pet! My sister got this picture of us together, it melted my heart when she was listening to me talk like that (✿ ♥‿♥)

I also recently moved out of my parents' house into an apartment close to where I work! I'm so excited to be on my own and able to walk to work. I think I want to do some DIY paintings and decorations, if you have any ideas let me know!

See you soon!!

Japanese food date and gets

 Hey Gals <3 

On Saturday, Bryan and I had a Japanese food date! We went to the local Japanese grocery store we'd never been to! 

I wore a lot of new gets on Saturday! My hoodie, necklace and jeans are new!

I really liked my make on Saturday too! I used my Elf Pumpkin Pie palette for the first time! I really liked it, I liked using warm tones since I haven't in such a long time!

Hoodie- Hollister
Necklace- Bunny Crafty Dream (instagram)
Bracelets- handmade 
Jeans- American Eagle (90's boyfriend)
Shellie May pouch- US Amazon, but from Disneyland Hong Kong

I LOVE my new neckalce!! She really did such a good job and I got to pick the colors and everything. 

This is what I got at the japanese grocery store! I'm excited to try the sakura tea, i've never had it before!

Bryan  made us a really good dinner (✿◠‿◠) He made Miso soup, roasted daikon and the rice had an egg and seaweed seasoning on it. It was my first time ever eating these foods and I really liked it!!

Now for my desserts  (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

I got this pastry only because it looked like Doraemon (✿ ♥‿♥) but it was really good. I'm not sure what it's called, but it had a chocolate filling and the top was something special too... cream cheese maybe? 

And I got these orange flavored mochi! I like orange but the flavor was a little strong. Next time I'd like to try the other flavors if they have them!

Sunday!!!  (✿◠‿◠) I ran some errands and was able to get some cute stuff too!

I know my hat is from victoria's secret, and my sweater is from Target, but I don't remember anything else haha. I don't know if I like this outfit, but my coat was really soft and warm!

I felt super cure with my make on, so it made up for it lol. I wore my canmake palette, I think it's called "juicy pure eyes" and mine says its shade 01! I like the cool colors a lot, and it has a really nice sparkly topper. 

I did my nails Sunday night! It was my second time using polygel, it isn't perfect but it turned out really well  (・∀・ )

Then today (Monday) I ran out to the store to get some glitter nail polish to finish them! I also added these gems, and I'm soooo happy with the final product. 

Onto my recent gets! 

On Saturday, I got these jewelry sets at Tjmaxx from Betsey Johnson 

And this shirt from Target! <3 

Today I finallyyyyy got my sanrio tamagotchi. It hasn't been a super long time but the tracking got weird and I was stressing lol. I showed Lizzie this my melody shirt the other day and she encouraged me to get it, she was ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. It's super cute and fits perfectly! It's more like a tunic shirt that you'd wear with leggings, but not quite long enough to be a dress. 

These are what I got today! Now looking at the picture you can't see them as well as I thought  (╯◕_◕)╯ But nail polishes are rose gold, silver, variety colored, and gold glitter. Makeup is Hard Candy Glitter Mascara and Hard Candy glitter liner. I used the mascara in high school and was really surprised to find in the dollar store, since I didn't think they still made it! The nail art pieces are REALLY cute flowers, leaves, and butterflies. There's even a hot pink hibiscus, I'm so excited.  ლ(╹◡╹ლ)

Thank you for reading! <3
