It Shall Come

So I've told you I am going to make a post with pictures of presents and such. I AM--- once I get hold of a digital camera. I don't have a working one right now and it's quite hard to take pictures of everything with the webcam on your laptop, y'know? My blog has been quite, no let's say very, dull lately and I'll fix that once I'm not that busy and have a digital camera and before  I travel to Maine for a trip on Friday. I'm stressing now because that means I'm going to have to take the pictures today and make the post at my mom's house before Friday, IF I'm not too busy. So, maybe I'll do the post after holiday ends??? You won't mind will you??? Holiday is just so busy for me I never have time to blog and take pictures.

I'll keep you interested with some music and such for now until I get that post done! ❤
❤❤❤XOXO❤❤❤

✳☃Merry❤ Christmas☃✳

Merry Christmas! 

Hiya guys!! I'm sorry I said I was going to post stuff and I didn't. I've just been so much busier than I thought I would have been!! I mean on Friday we were wrapping gifts and getting ready for Christmas, on Saturday I had brunch and hung out with my cousins and their friends, then I went over my mum's house to visit, today I came home and opened presents, had a Christmas party with the family, and opened more presents, and now I'm upstairs enjoying that wonderful Christmas feeling while writing this post. So, yeah, but I do promise that I will show you some of my Christmas gifts and pictures of me. So, stay tuned, or maybe not so tuned because I have no idea when I'll get the posts done!!
❤XOXO❤

Update 4 Today!

Pictures on their way. I'm going to take some webcam photos of my circle lenses today since I don't feel like downloading those pictures and then the Christmas ones, it takes too long! So, this is kind of like a preview, if you will, of my circle lenses. So stay tuned for like this evening and there will be crappy webcam photos of them!!

Circle lens review preview:
Anyways, about the lenses. They were really tricky to put in. Especially the left one! Oh my god, it kept folding and moving, but then finally, they stayed put and went on smoothly. So, few I thought that one didn't fit, but it did, thank god. I scared myself when I looked into the mirror after I put them on!! In low light, they are really intense and dark. I love them though, they feel like they're not even there and they aren't as noticeable with my family as I thought they would be.

Stay tuned Luvs!!!
❤XOXO❤

Review Time: HoneyColor.com Continued...

I wrote a post regarding the site HoneyColor. I will now review how their service was.

This is my first time ordering from them and it was really GOOD! My order arrived way earlier than they said it would arrive, which is really good. Also, they replied to all of my emails right away and sent me a tracking number and such, like I wrote about in the first review post. So, I guess the experience with HoneyColor wasn't that good for some people, but it a good site if you want a large selection of circle lenses. They also sell Dollywink and eye care products along with different cases and automatic lens cleaners. They also give you free animal cases with every purchase and free express shipping on order of 100+. Their site also has a very good layout and they people are polite. They give good information on how to care for lenses, as well. So, if I would recommend this site.
❤❤❤XOXO❤❤❤

❤Ahhhhh....❤

Oh yes, my circle lenses will be coming tomorrow. Wow, that shipping was very fast; much faster than I thought it would be. That makes me happy. Now I have them for Christmas!! That also means I will be able to review them sooner and post my Christmas post sooner, as well!! How lovely!! ❤❤❤ They are patiently waiting at my post office. I will go and get them tomorrow after school. I hope they are good and everything ordered is there. Meanwhile, a little later tonight I shall review my experience with HoneyColor!! ❤❤❤

Tag: Get Your Freak On

This is, yet again, another tag post I got from Mei's blog. It about things that are really strange about yourself. You guys probably know nothing strange about me, so now I shall tell you who I REALLY am! Mu-ha-ha-ha!!! (^V^)

1.What's a nickname only you family calls you?
I don't really have a nickname with my family. They call me Haylea, which is my name. My sister calls me London--sometimes. Other than that, my friends and teachers call me Hales or HayHay (HayHay was a nickname that stuck at my old school) My friends online call me Yumi, which I came up with this year (clever, eh?) So other than that, those are the only nicknames I've ever had.

2. What's a weird habit of yours?
Oh, haha, probably the weirdest habit of mine is counting calories. I don't know why I do it, but I know the amount of calories in every kind of food, and I don't know how I ever learned them all.  I do it in my head throughout the day without even thinking. It's not really weird, but everyone thinks it is. Another thing is I sleep in a cocoon. I wrap myself in my blanket-- head and everything and curl up in a tight ball and sleep and oh, if people wake me up and try to remove me from my cocoon it's hell to pay!

3. Do you have any weird phobias?
Of course I do! I have so many phobias, you don't even want to know! I think my weirdest one is that I'm terrified of peanut butter. I'm afraid that it will stick to the roof of my mouth and I won't be able to breath. That I'll die if I eat peanut butter. I don't know why this phobia started in the first place, but it's really strange. I also am afraid of the look of it, but I'll deal if I have to make a PB&J sandwich for my little sisters!


4. What's a song you LOVE to blast and belt out when you're alone? 
There is a lot! I'm always singing songs out loud, even though I might not even like that song! But, recently I can't stop singing "Oh Christmas Tree" at the top of my lungs in an opera lady voice. I even looked up the lyrics on the internet so I could sing the entire song while I was home alone.

5. What's one of your biggest pet peeves?
Um, should I tell you all of them? The list is ENDLESS! I think my biggest pet peeve is when people assume things. Like when they misquote you, or say you said things you never said, or say you did something that you never did. It's like they know you, but most likely they don't know you at all! I wanna punch them in the face. I guess I'll share with you one more pet peeve of mine: people talking too loud. You know, when there is no need to talk loud, AT ALL and they are like talking over everyone? It IRKS me.

6. What's one of your nervous habits?
I don't know if this is a habit or not, but I get anxiety. Every time I'm scared or just plain nervous and stressed my heart beats irregularly and I hyperventilate. I thought I was having a heart attack one time, so I asked my doctor what the hell was going on and he said I was having an anxiety panic attack. So, they aren't dangerous, so now it's just a frequent part of my life.

7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
Um, I'm not currently sleeping with anyone right now, but I sleep on the outside part of my bed, not the side against the wall. I am scared something will grab me from inside the crack between the bed and the wall. So, I usually wake up with some body part hanging over the side of the bed. That's how I know I sleep on that side for most of the night. Sometimes I even wake up lying horizontally on my bed with my legs hanging over the side. This happens quite often, actually.

8. What was your first stuffed animal & it's name? 
OH GOD! I've had so many stuffed animals when I younger, how can I possibly remember?! Can I tell you what my favourite one was and still is? I think that'll be okay. My stuffed cow named Floof. No one shall touch her, she is my Floof! I named her that because I had a hot pink feather pin that I pinned onto the top of her head. So it looked like a floof of hot pink hair on her head, hence I named her Floof.

9. What's the drink you ALWAYS order at Starbucks?
I really love chai lattes from Starbucks, but I don't always order them. I always order and expresso with caramel in it instead of sugar. I also add vanilla in it. That is what I usually do and I LOVE it!!! Without my coffee, I wouldn't be blogging right now. I'd be sleeping.

10. What's the beauty rule you preach... but never ACTUALLY practise? 
Wash your face with cold water, then hot water, then cold. I always tell people to do this when they complain their skin is dull or chapped. Since I don't really have that problem with my skin, I don't do it. I only do it in the Summer when my face is kind of burnt and dull. Overall, I preach this a ton, but never actually do it.

11. Which way do you face in the shower?
I face both ways throughout my shower, but for most of the time I am facing with my back to the water. I face the water to wash my face and rinse soap off the front of my body. And the funny thing is, I never really thought about any of these things being asked until today when the questions were asked!!!

12. Do you have any weird body skills? 
Yes. I don't like to admit it because for some reason every time I bring it up, people say "that sounds wrong!" or "that'll impress guys!". I am REALLY flexible... I mean sometimes people say I'm like a contortionist  (which is someone that ties themselves up in knots). I can bend backwards onto my hands from standing up, lay on my stomach and touch my head with my feet, do splits, and even put my feet behind my head when I'm sitting. It's scary really. I also have flexible feet. I can almost turn my entire foot backwards while standing. I scare myself when I do that.

13. What's your favourite comfort food/ food that's bad but you eat it anyways? 
I don't really have a comfort food and I don't really eat junk food so... Oh, I know, I really love sweet potato fries. I guess fries are pretty unhealthy, right? Well, I really like them, but barely anyone buys them in my family so I can never have them. How sad...

14. What's a phrase or exclamation that you always say? 
I'm always saying "AMAZING!" with much enthusiasm. I do that, not only in my blog, but in real life. Another thing I'm always saying is "Oh" I say it when I get hurt, when something surprises me, when I find out I'm wrong, etc... Another thing I say is "You know" or how I say it, "Y'know?" I say it at the beginning of sentences and the end of sentences.

15. Time to sleep - what are you ACTUALLY wearing? 
I sleep in a T-shirt or cami with yoga pants. My love for my yoga pants is insane. I live in them on the weekends when I'm at home doing nothing and when I get home from school, I usually strip off my jeans and jump into my yoga pants. And, haha, oh, sometimes I'm wrapped up in a blanket around my house before bed. My house is pretty old, so like when the heat is on, it doesn't make much of a difference so it's like really cold in our house during the winter. I don't like sweatshirts or too much clothing on my skin, so a blanket works just fine to keep me warm.

OH HELL NO!

So, I DID say I wouldn't be going on gyaru secrets anymore, but I heard something about ZhiZhi being on it a lot this weekend, so I had to look at it... OH HELL NO! ZhiZhi shall not be posted multiple times on gyaru secrets! She is AMAZING and that troll poster can say nothing bad, at all, about ZhiZhi! No! I know I shouldn't get worked up about it, but.. NO! I don't like perfectly AMAZING people being trolled on gyaru secrets! See? This is exactly why I HATE gyaru secrets! URG, these posts make me angry!!! I swear if anymore posts end up about my favourite people, I shall make a badass post about gyaru secrets and the trolls on it! Why waste my effort? Because! It makes me very angry!!! I don't think you've ever seen my hostile bitchy side, but here it is. So now you know. I am very much against hating people for no reason.

Let's analyse the secrets, shall we???

To the posters on G_S:
"You're just jealous that Zhizhi is gorgeous, nice, and AMAZING! Also, you envy her blog-- how awesomely successful and popular it is! Get over yourself and realise ZhiZhi will always be better than you! Muhahaha!"
Sincerely,
Yumi
XOXO
P.S. the analysis is really for people that post secrets on gyaru secrets, but other readers can enjoy themselves if you want.
⇑ ⇑ ⇑
-_- she does put a lot of effort into her makeup! Just look at it closely and see the skill! The skill that you poster of this secret doesn't have! 

⇑ ⇑ ⇑
How do you know she lives somewhere where the drinking age is something other than 21, you assuming American (again, nothing against you wonderful Americans, just the assuming ones). If you weren't such a troll then maybe you'd get your facts straight before you start posting senseless secrets! 
        ⇓From Zhizhi's blog⇓                                                ⇓From Gyaru Secrets⇓
                                                           ⇑ ⇑ ⇑
See the difference?I know I do!!! ZhiZhi is not fat! She's has a beautiful body, you need to shut your mouth. You should probably go to the gym and cut back on the cupcakes yourself (^_^) You also totally shortened and widened that photo!!! Look at the one on the right that I put. See? It's longer and narrower. What kind of psychotic, sick, jealous person tries to make someone look fatter??? The picture on the right... does it look fat??? No! because I didn't do anything to it! I kept her body the way it was!! You bullshitter. 

I hope you have enjoyed my wonderfully grand rant!!! Oh, I bet this isn't the last you'll see of my hostile bitchy side.... it comes out when I see things I don't like. And today was one of those days when it comes out... Yeah, don't mess with my hostile bitchy side... (>.>) 

Long gone blogs

I've noticed that I don't read a lot of the blogs I used to read. Mainly because the authors of them have stopped blogging all together. Even some really successful bloggers have stopped blogging. If your blog is successful, why would you want to throw it all away??? I know that some bloggers have made new blogs, but they usually inform their readers that they have made a new blog one way or another. It's not a big deal if someone stops blogging, but it makes me, and probably some other readers, to go check their blog and find out they haven't written anything since forever. Where'd they go??? Something else I've noticed is that some beginner bloggers quit blogging after a month or so. I don't know for a fact, but I think that it's because they don't get a ton of views right away. If that's the case, I don't think they should have given up. If you don't blog, you won't get any views. So if you blog more there is more of chance that you'll get some new viewers. New viewers= more views. That blog that they quitted after a month or so could've gotten really popular for all they know. I think you should at least try to keep blogging. I know that, frankly, it's none of business why bloggers quit blogging, and I shouldn't care about other's blogs, but I'm just saying, that having a successful blog and getting a lot of viewers takes time and A LOT of blogging. The best way to get a lot of views really fast is by blogging once or more a day. This way more shows up on searches for certain topics and your blog will also show up more in the next blog feature in blogger. So, take you time and get blogging and you'll see your amount of views go up! Don't give up so easily!!!
❤XOXO❤


Christmas update

I want to tell you that I'll be taking pictures of all my Christmas presents and showing them to you! I don't really like flaunting my stuff, but people seem to like that. Well, once it's Christmas and I get all of my presents I'll post it. Maybe not all of the presents, but the ones I like the most! So, check my blog around Christmas and if I haven't posted the post yet, it's probably because I'm busy with Christmas or I haven't gotten all of my presents yet. So, I promise I will do it even if after Christmas. I will also take pictures of me on Christmas and review my circle lenses after Christmas. So, there will be some semi-intersting posts soon, don't worry. I know my blog has been a drone lately!!!
P.S. wow! I said Christmas eight times in this one short post!!!
XOXO

❤ New Look ❤

OMG! I'm so happy! I finally finished my header! Finally! It took so long; although it looks very easy to do. I made it in photoshop. I made it have a cute, girly, wintery look with a snowflake background. The girls in it are models from Ageha and Jelly. I also put a snippet about what my blog is about so people visiting know what they are going to be reading about. I made sure the layout looked good.

Also, I made my blog less crowded looking by making the background a solid colour and the header have a print background. This header is not that boring compared to my old one and I'm really happy with the results!

How does it look??? I hope it looks good! It took so much effort, and time to do!!!

Creepyness (>.>)

I am going to talk about some useless, meaningless, completely senseless creepy stuff today...

well don't stop reading, you might not find it useless, meaningless, or completely senseless creepy stuff!!!

Creepyness #1
I saw this circle lens series on a couple blogs before and I always thought there were... well, kind of creepy. They have really light, foggy-looking colours and they have no limbal ring, which makes it look like that light, foggy-looking colour is going into the whites of the eyes... which is well, you know, kind of infectious disease like. For some reason I just don't like them... You know what I mean?







Creepyness #2
I also wanted to share with you today some creepy photoshop I did recently....
Seriously, it's really creepy, I'm warning you. You might just gasp, or scream, or just sit and stare thinking about how oh so very creepy it is. Haha!




↑ Creepy aren't they??? ↑


Creepyness #3
Another creepy thing I want to mention... manba... yeah, you know the Japanese fashion that is like a sub-style of gyaru? You know, the girls with the really dark faces, the really heavy white makeup, and the vibrant hair and clothes? The style that is known to resemble the yamamba, the mountain hag?  
Yeah, they scare me. I never really noticed how insanely creepy that style was until like a week ago. Now, for some reason I can't look at some of the pictures of girls without getting chills. I love Japanese fashion and all, but I can't help but not like this style. I don't know why I'm creeped out by it. It's just... really... creepy (O.O) 





I hope this post has been creepy! (^_^)

G_S is no more for me

I have decided, as of today, that I am no longer going to follow the gyaru secrets community. It's childish and a big waste of time. I understand it's really popular, and me mentioning it on my blog has earned me a lot of views, but I don't like how it's bashing people for no reason. It's a really useless site in my opinion and I don't think anyone should post on there. But... those are just my thoughts and I really don't care if you post on G_S or not. Go ahead, it just makes you the ugly person. (^_^)

Origin post is preparing shipment???

So, my circle lenses package was shipped out on the 12th, I received a tracking email from USPS and it's been stuck on origin post is preparing shipment since the 13th. I have no idea what this means, so I looked it up. But, I couldn't get a straight answer. I got three really popular ones such as:

"Your package is where it's coming from (in my case Malaysia) at the sorting centre. They are waiting for the bin to be full, so they can ship the load to the US."
"Your package is in the US where it's going to travel to your house. It's waiting for USPS to pick it up at the sorting centre."
"Your package is basically sitting in customs waiting to be shipped out. Once your package goes through customs, you're package will be handed over to USPS"

Do any of you know which is the right answer???


Here's what my tracking info looks like:

Has anyone else seen this???

Circle Lenses Harmful?

Recently I've heard some bad things about circle lenses in the USA. As you probably already know, I've ordered circle lenses. Apparently they are harmful and cause blindness. But, how come I never hear, nor ever heard, bad stories from actual people that wear circle lenses??? That's weird. What I'm thinking is that maybe the people writing it are stupid, stereotyping, assuming Americans (sorry perfectly awesome and knowledgable Americans, but sometimes some Americans are what I described above) that hear the American contact brands complaining that people stopped buying their colour contacts for ones that actually benefit the size and sexiness or your eyes and write a rant about it just by the rumour-has-it method. Hence, other assuming people hear this and rant, as well. I also noticed that articles (I researched the harmful effects of circle lenses my whole study period, which is two hours) mentioning the harmful effects were written when circle lenses became popular or when the US FDA heard about them. Hmm, fishy.

That brings up something else I've heard about circle lenses. They aren't approved by the US FDA. BUTT, they are approved by the Korean FDA!!! I don't get it!!! How come the US finds circle lenses so bad, but Korea approves them and manufactures them legally? That just sound really peculiar to me. Maybe it's because doctors are losing money because people aren't coming to them for colour contact fittings and such? I don't know, but I really don't think Asian countries would legalise  and approve the health of something that is harmful. If you don't know, Asian countries are kind of more advanced than the US in many ways. They are also healthier than the US. How come cigarettes are legal and they legalise marijuana in certain amounts in California, but disapprove circle lenses? It's not like people will become addicted to circle lenses, or get lung cancer, and stuff like that. I'm not expert, but I think it has something to do with income. Yeah that's right, the dough, the cash, the MONEY!!! I mean drugs bring in income, cigarettes do, and guess what? So do colour contacts. So when Asian companies were making money off Americans, the US was probably like, "OH, HELL NO! Those Asian countries can't take our money! We shall make circle lenses illegal for sale in the US!"

Studies also show that almost 2 million women, girls, and even guys (yeah, guys DO wear circle lenses) wear circle lenses in Japan! That's more than 30% of the population!!! So that means if circle lenses did harm people, wouldn't I hear more about the danger of them on the internet from people other than ranting, KnowItAll Americans??? It's because circle lenses are only harmful if you don't take care of them the right way, or have freakishly small or big eyes and need a bigger or smaller base curve.

This is my opinion, and it hasn't been approved by anybody (the US would probably arrest me for bashing them this way since I'm a USA citizen, or maybe not haha)

Happy Sweet 16 Sammyboy!!

Umm, excuse the title, hehehe... so yeah, anyways, yesterday was my bestie Sam's 16th birthday!! Isn't like your 16th birthday supposed to be really awesome??? I think so!!! I think I completely vetoed writing a post about him out of my mind without putting much thought into it. I do that a lot... so here's the post today!!! Sammyboy is a funny, amazing, sometimes creepy friend!!! So send him best wishes for his sweetest sweeter sweet 16!!! I love ya' Sammyboy, and you know it!!!

These pics are for him, but you can take a look:

The giant cupcake of your dreams, Sam!!! Mu-ha-ha-ha!!!
Chowder is gonna eat it!!!







↑ Hardy-har-har inside joke↑





So yeah, if you're not Sam and you don't know me and you're reading this then you're probably really confused on why the heck I did those pictures!!! You'll never know... hahaha!!!

❤Yayz❤

Guess what arrived today??? My curling iron!!! I decided not to go with any of the ones I made a post about in my new curling iron post. I decided to buy the Bed Head Tigi Hot Body 1" Curling Iron. It has a clamp instead of a mini, and or no clamp. I thought a curling iron with a clamp is probably easier to use than one without a clamp, and forget about a mini clamp, how the heck do you use that? Well, my sister's great grandparents sent it up to me from Florida!!! It arrived right after I came home from school today, how convenient!!! Yay!!!The next package to come is my order from Victoria's Secret which is coming on the 20th!!! Right before Christmas how convenient!!! The only thing that isn't going that well for me is my order from Honey Color because it's coming on the 29th, fashionably late, i guess you could say... I know I still have much more presents to come, but not that I know of!!! Oh, how I hate surprises!!!

❤Merry Kanishmas!❤
From,
Chowder

Review Time: HoneyColor.com

So, if you have read my last post, you probably know that I ordered circle lenses from Honey Color (I'll review them when I get them). For now, I'll review the site and customer service of HoneyColor.com

I thought the site was pretty and professionally designed. That is a big thing to me because I won't buy from a site that is unattractive and unprofessional design. So, my Dad place the order for me on Thursday. I received an email saying they are processing my order on the same night, which is pretty good I think. They sent me an email this morning informing me that my order had been shipped and that I will receive my package on December 29th. WHAT!? I mean it's great that they shipped my order at the time they are supposed to, but after Christmas??? When I first ordered it, the confirmation email had said it would arrive right before Christmas! It is my Christmas present and I really wanted it ON Christmas. So, there's a thumbs down for me: they lie about delivery times!!! Anyways, now I have to wait four days after Christmas to get my package. Great!! (not) Well, I did want express shipping, but my Dad ordered without me with my Uncle and he said I didn't need express shipping, that my package will come before Christmas even with standard shipping. No, Mr. KnowItAll, it's coming all the way from Malaysia! Don't you understand that if it's coming all the way from there, it will take a long time? No, because you're a KnowItAll. So, thanks to him, now my lenses are coming four days after Christmas!!! I'm not the happiest person right now...

So, I've been hearing some pretty bad reviews on HoneyColor. Complaints such as: they don't reply to email, they don't send tracking numbers, they never ship their packages, they don't refund, they send refunds quicker than it takes to ship packages, they don't give reasons why they didn't send their packages, it takes forever for packages to come,and many more. But, they replied to my emails and they already shipped my package. Hopefully, nothing bad happens from here. I thought the customer service was the same as Zappos, which has very good service reviews. They sent my package out at the same time and it took the same amount of time to reply to my emails. They both sent me tracking information that didn't work right away, but that's how tracking numbers work. They don't give information right away. Overall, I thought HoneyColor's customer service was decent and acceptable.

When I get my lenses, if I don't have problems like other people, I'll tell you how my service has went from this point and review the lenses.

Wanna buy lenses from them?

I also have their site banner on my sidebar. Yes! That is what I wanted! Woo-Hoo!!!

❤ YES ❤

So, Oh, finally I can cross one thing off my wish list! My circle lenses! My dad bought them for me tonight! It is my Christmas present this year! I am so happy!!! I can't wait until they come! They're coming around right before Christmas, so it works out pretty perfectly! Again, in case you don't know already, I'm getting EOS Candy Magic King Size in blue/aqua and Rhoto Moist eye drops.

Also, some other things I am soon going to be able to cross off my Christmas list is my new curling iron! I decided on getting Bed Head Tigi Maxxed Out. The pink one from my last post. And, another thing, I never made a post about this but it is so on my wishlist, my outfit from Victoria's Secret! No, it's not naughty, sexy time clothes. It's jeans (my deep love for VS jeans) and a sweater (my unconditional love for sweaters). They are all going to be Christmas gifts. The curling iron from Nani (my sister's great grandma) and the clothes from my godparent/ aunty. Yayzzz!!! \(^O^)/

Here's some pictures from Ageha showing models wearing my circle lenses and some hair photos (not from Ageha, but from Victoria's Secret, because of the outfit and curling iron mixed together) of big, loose curls of my dreams:








Wishlist: New Curling Iron

I have a boring, old school, small metal barrel curling iron! I want a modern, adjustable heat, ceramic barrel curler that is much easier to curl hair than my current one, that takes forever to heat up and gets really hot, and takes a long time to make satisfactory curls.

But... the question is... which one do I want?! There are so many good sounding curling irons! Which one is the best?!

Here's what I'm thinking:

Conair You-Curl???


Here's what the Conair site says its features are:
-Conical iron
-Instant style with no clamp-- simply wrap
-fast and easy, with no kinks
-tourmaline ceramic technology offers more protection, reduces frizz, helps eliminate static, and no damaging hot spots
-powerful ceramic heater
-30-second instant heat
-Ultra-high heat levels-- 400 degrees F/ 204 degrees C
-Auto shutoff
-LED indicator lights
-Professional length line cord
-Limited five year warranty on the You Curl iron

Depending on where you buy it, it cost from around $40.00- $30.00

Sound pretty good huh? Some of the things are just fancy talk to make you buy it, but overall it has everything I want! Especially the fact that is creates loose, bouncy curls instead of tight curly-Qs; it has no clamp, as well. Clamp marks are so annoying -_-

Bed Head Tigi Maxxed Out Curling Iron???



Bed Head Tigi says it has these features:
-Ceramic Technology; for softer shinier loose curls, high heat preserves hair's natural moisture for styles without frizz
-Tourmaline Technology; for ultimate shine, volume, and healthier looking styles
-30 Second Fast Heat-Up

My Book: Chapter 1

Hai!! I'm writing a book! Well, I have been for a while. Like a long while. I'm going to show you the first chapter of it! It's quite sad, so for those of you that don't like sad, dramatic stories, I wouldn't read this. So, read it and tell me what you think!! It's not about gyaru or anything like that, so people that aren't into gyaru reading my blog can read this!! It's pretty long and I didn't want it to take over my blog so click read more to, of course, read more!!

here you go:



Chapter 1
     
Now, Lilia Silversmith has been given the opportunity that every young ballerina dreams for, to have a chance at being big; to have their graceful steps and twirls mean something. This is a dream, so it seems, but little do these girls, including Lilia, know the harsh reality of the ballet world. Of course you’re probably thinking, “Working in a ballet company must be an amazing experience; your own vanity stall, new, shiny pointe shoes, beautifully elaborate costumes, day after day of dancing and nothing more. What more could a girl want.” You see, that’s the illusion. Of course for some people this experience can be life changing in a positive way but for others it might be life changing in a, let’s say, slightly negative way. Well for example, there’s Lilia; a sweet, innocent, smart, little ball of radiant light thinking she’s going to become a famous prima ballerina, to travel the world and perform in all the greatest ballets and meet all of the world’s most famous dancers. This is Lilia’s story in this journey many young dancers decide to make. This is her story of growing up and facing cold, raw reality.
      Lilia felt so alive every time she first walked into the Ballet Le Mystique Ballet Company building. The smell of powdered resin and oak wood filled her nose delightfully. She passed dance studio after dance studio, everyone in them working for the same thing she was working for the leading role in one or more of the big ballets that are put on by Ballet Le Mystique, like Giselle in Giselle and Odette in Swan Lake. She was new while so many girls at this company have been here for several years and have such a better chance at succeeding. This isn’t what Lilia really believed. That was what her mother, friends, and old dance instructors believe. Lilia believes she is a wonderful, outstanding dancer that is fresh-faced and willing to put her biggest effort into getting the part she desires and devoting her personal life to dancing. Well, she really is. Lilia does know that she is shy, quiet, and innocent, but she isn’t about to let the personality flaws that made school a living nightmare for her ruin her hopes and dreams at becoming a prima ballerina. She was independent and relied on herself. She never had many friends and she never really thought she needed them. To her dance was a friend; dance was her life. When she woke up in the morning, the first thing she thought of was dance. During the day, dance steps and routines filled her brain. At night she’s lie awake thinking about tomorrows dance class. In her sleep she dreams of dancing on stage in front of four thousand people. Dance seems to control her body like a drug addiction. She admits she is a little bit obsessive over dance, but dance is all she has ever had. I mean her family doesn’t understand what she wants to do with her life. Her only friend, Jesse, acts like Lilia is invisible and hangs out with a group of girls wearing Abercrombie, with straight hair and glossy lips. Lilia could never be one of those girls. She wasn’t ugly. She was very pretty. She could look the part if she tried, but she didn’t act like them. She didn’t giggle constantly or talk all the time and she never could. She was serene. She liked to wear soft ballet warm up clothes and natural makeup to school and she had wavy, light brown hair that she left down except when she was dancing. She was also quiet. So quiet that often, she would go whole school days without talking. Even though she was pretty no one seemed to notice her. They would talk about anything with their friends around her. She saw and heard everything but they never saw or heard her.
      Jesse had been the only person that she could turn to when she needed someone. Jesse liked to help and comfort people. Lilia would come and cry and moan about how she injured herself at dance or how the teacher is too hard on her even thought she works the hardest out of everyone in her ballet class. Lilia stuck to Jesse for the longest time, but when they got into high school they slowly began to drift apart. In their sophomore year is when Jesse started talking to Casey, a tall, tan, blond with everything Abercrombie and the straightest, shiniest hair. Jesse began to ignore Lilia more and more to the point where Lilia would call and Jesse would pick up the phone and hang up so she didn’t have to hear the phone ring over and over, let alone talk to Lilia. At school, Lilia would try to be with Jesse but Jesse would glance over her shoulder, pout her lips a little more and walk fast to catch up to Casey and the rest of her friends. Lilia didn’t take it that hard, however. She had other things to focus on; like schoolwork and dance. She would sit alone in classes and eat alone in the crowded cafeteria. She didn’t mind and nobody seemed to care.

      In Lilia’s junior year of high school, she decided that she had other priorities besides sitting alone and working on maths papers. She had to focus on the thing taking over her body. It seems silly to say that dance told her to quit school and audition for ballet companies in the city, but without dance she wouldn’t have even thought about quitting school. When she told her mother about her plans, her mother was devastated. She reprimanded her about throwing her future away and ruining any opportunity of becoming a successful lawyer like her. Lilia didn’t want to be a lawyer she wanted to dance. She only wanted to dance. Didn’t her mother understand that? Lilia told her that she was going to the city to audition for ballet companies. Her mom just snorted and said, “You’re going to choose a one out of a million dream instead of choosing over a successful, good paying job as a lawyer?” Lilia didn’t care what her mother said. She was used to people saying that a future in dance is virtually impossible. She would tell them of all the famous dancers and their success stories. They would only explain to her that she is not them she is only a little girl and that her plan isn’t practical. But she wasn’t about to let someone crush her dreams like that. She believed that if you want something bad enough and you really work for it, you will get it in due time.

Growlsss...

Review Time!: Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque


This used to be a remedy sworn by my mum. I was always trying new products to try and get rid of stubborn little blemishes that just won't budge. She was always telling me, "when I was your age, I used Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque. It dries up blemishes over night." I had not idea what that was, nor have I ever heard of it, so I never really tried it or thought much of it. So one time I was at my local beauty product store, when I saw a jar of the tell-tale Mine Julep Masque. I bought the small jar; because the product was really cheap! Like $2.00 for a small jar. The large jar was $4.00. So I used it and it really worked! Unfortunately, I could only find it at that one beauty store! I ran out after I moved, so I was desperately rationing my one small jar. Then, while picking up some stuff with my dad at the local drug store, guess what I see? A tube of my beloved Mint Julep! I didn't buy any though because we hadn't gone to the store for my beauty needs. But, when I bought my Neutrogena Deep Clean facial cleanser, I also bought a tube of Mint Julep masque!! This big tube was only $3.50! That's so AMAZING! I'll tell you it's said benefits on the front and back.

Front:
Helps dry up acne pimples, rinse away blackheads & shrink enlarged pores

Back:
Mint Julep Masque is the original natural home treatment developed by a dermatologist that helps dry up acne pimples, rinse away blackheads and shrink enlarged pores. Simply apply Mint Julep Masque to your clean face and neck. Within minutes it firms and hardens, drawing out impurities from your pores. After the masque is removed, you skink will feel clean, refreshed and smooth. Even for individuals who are fortunately free of skin problems, Mint Julep Masque is a refreshing facial treatment that helps relax tired muscles and ease tension lines on the face and neck.


Is it true? I shall tell you...

Of course it's true! It dries up, sucks all the toxins and dirt out of your face and then rinses away clean, leaving your skin tingly and fresh. It doesn't dry out your skin either. It takes care of spots over night! just dab on the blemish and sleep with it on, wash it off in the morning, and voila! no more spot! I do a full face treatment with this once a week. I love how it keeps my pores small and my skin clear. This is a magical skin product! Don't we all want a product that magically dissolves blemishes. Even if this doesn't dissolve them; it dries them up and defeats them. It's also a very refreshing thing to do after a long, stressful week.

Review Time!: Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser


This is my first time ever using this cleanser. I just bought it last weekend when I had run out of my St. Ives Green Tea cleanser, which wasn't that good at all. So, I've heard quite a few good reviews about this cleanser and that's why I wanted to try it. I've always loved Neutrogena because it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. First, I'll read off what it says on the front and back. I think that's important to do, so you know it's properties!! (^_^)

Front: 
Normal to oily skin
a penetrating and thorough cleanser that improves you complexion

Back: 
cleans so deeply and thoroughly that it improves the look and feel of skin. Skin is left clean-- with not pore-clogging residue. Your complexion looks fresh and healthy; feels smooth and soft from deeper, more thorough cleansing. 
This effective face wash contains a hydroxy acid which penetrates deep into pores, dissolving dirt, oil and make-up. It also removes dead surface skin cells that can dry, roughen and dull your complexion. 

Oil free - Alcohol free - Dermatologist tested 


Is it true? I shall tell you...

Yeah it's true. I have no idea if it's penetrating into my pores and such, but it gives me a deep clean feeling I've never felt before. My skin felt so soft and fresh after I got out of the shower. My skin also looked very matte, yet dewy throughout the day, and my foundation didn't look cakey. I think that's because the cleanser improved the surface of my skin. This cleanser also evens out skin tone because my skin is usually redder in some spots, but after using this cleanser, my face is all one tone. How magical??? I would totally recommend this product, it's great! Neutrogena never fails me!! 

Purikura

Do you like purikura??? Well, who doesn't like it??? Here's a site that allows you to make purikura without going to Japan. You can do it right where you're sitting!! Seriously, try this out!! I love it!
Purikura yourself!!!

Change, change, change...

I've changed my blog a lot!! Well, not a lot. Maybe a little, but not so much. Okay, I changed my blog somewhat. I changed the size of the blog entirely,I got rid of the left sidebar because I thought my posts looked pretty crammed with the two sidebars. So, now I have all my stuff from that sidebar on my right sidebar. Of course I had to change the font size, style, and header size!! I didn't even realise that the size of the header doesn't change with the size of the blog. I have to re-upload my header and shrink it to fit.  By the way, I'm working on my header and making it better, so that'll be done soon. I can't wait!! I really really want to make this blog beautiful.

I'm home today because I have a fever! Oh boo. Well, I need to rest or I'll never get better, right? Isn't that how it works. I never really like staying home, but today I kind of wanted to because I feel really crappy. I mean I have no energy whatsoever, I can't breath out of my nose, I have drool on my face from sleeping, I can't stop coughing, and I think I might be overdosing on cough drops in hope of soothing my sore throat. Can you even overdose on cough drops? (O.o) So, yeah, I think I'm going to blog some more today because what else is there to do when you're home besides sleeping, which I can't do in the daytime. It's just not physically possible for me.

Old Friends

This post might seem kind of sad, since I've been sick and feel kind of melancholy, but I'm feeling better and I'm going to load you with a ton of words so prepare!! There's something I've noticed or thought about lately. Have you ever just thought about your old friends or people you never talk to anymore that you used to be so close to? It happens to me all the time. I just can't help but kind of miss old friends. I've never had good history with girls. I'd rather be friends with guys. Thinking back to my middle school years, I can think of so many friends I don't talk to anymore.
So anyways, I'll tell you a few stories about past friends, hope you enjoy it (^_^)

Sixth grade:
When I was in sixth grade, I guess you could say I was really popular. I mean I hung out with the "cool" group of girls; not that I really thought much about it then. I was so carefree and funny. I was so loud and exuberant compared to a lot of my friends. My best friends were Maddy, Monica, Summer (she and Maddy will come up in later grades), and Taylor. I know there were more, but I can't remember who was in our group of friends. Everything was great for like half the year, but then drama started. There was this group of three girls: Megan, Gisele, and Mckenzie.Oh, they were always trying to find something to say about me. I got that tooken care of though. They got in so much trouble when they drew pictures of me and gave them to me after. Then, after that feud was died down;  for some reason Summer started to tell me I was rude and annoying or that I followed and copied them. I was so confused because I never followed them. I've always been my own self and pretty independent. Pretty soon she started ignoring me and she got Taylor and Monica to go along with her. Maddy still talked to me, but didn't hang out with me all that much. I still sat with Maddy at lunch, though. Then "war" broke out. Summer and Taylor started fights with me; harassing me. Mckenzie, from the group of girls that had harassed me earlier that year started talking to me when she heard me and Summer weren't hanging out anymore. So I fell into her group. I changed. I was not the sweet little innocent, exuberant girl anymore. I was the bitchy, snobby, "don't talk to me" girl. Pretty soon, I started dating Oscar, my on and off boyfriend, who was known to be quite the man-slut. I guess I just wanted to fit in. Most likely, I'm not the only one that has done stupid things to fit in? Anyways, I hung out with them until Summer and Megan started talking. That's when our two group joined together; and I was in the middle of the two. Maddy wanted me in her group and Mckenzie wanted me in her group, so by being together I was finally in a somewhat safe place. This is the year I met my bestest friend in the world, Sarah, as well. Everything stayed the way it was until Summer time going into seventh grade.

Seventh grade:
In the summer before seventh grade, I was still hanging out with all the people I was before, but for some reason Gisele and Megan didn't like me anymore, so along with them left Mckenzie. So I was again with Maddy, Summer, and Monica. This time Taylor was out of the mix. Summer had decided to get rid of her. So on my birthday, I had invited Sarah, even though I barely even knew her (>.<) I just felt like she needed some friends and a good time. She was never fond of me before this. I guess our friendship was meant to be (haha cheesy) because I wouldn't have done that for anyone else; it's just not me. So a few weeks after my birthday, Summer invited me on a camping trip. I went of course  because she was considered my best friend at the time. So, it was so fun and everything I thought it would be, but at night when we had nothing to do, she talked crap about Maddy, Megan, Mckenzie, and just everyone. I didn't want to seem like a goody two shoes so I just kind of nodded along, I NEVER said anything bad about any of my friends. So after the camping trip, Summer stayed over for a night. I noticed Summer was texting Maddy a lot. Summer said she had to leave, so she did. Maddy apparently had to go to a wedding, but that was NOT true because Summer went straight to her house after she left mine. Maddy and Megan started texting me telling me that I'm such a shit talker and that I'm rude. Maddy asked me all these questions like "you said you think I'm too much of a flirt?" and "you called me fat?" and "you think the way I dress is ugly?" I was so overwhelmed by this because I had never said any of those things. Turns out Summer was over there telling them I said that. I know because I asked Maddy why she thought I said these things, and she said I believe my friends. I asked her who is telling her these things and she says Summer. So there you have another time Summer ditches me. So I was so alone feeling. I didn't know what to do. I mean what did I have? That group of friends was long gone, and the other group of friends had left me long ago. I spent so many days crying and being depressed. I didn't have any friends all because of something I never did. What was wrong with me? I still wonder that. But (lightbulb) I had Sarah. So I texted her and she told me to call her. She sat through and listened to everything. I even cried over the phone. For three hours! That's when I knew Sarah was a good friend.

So for the seventh grade I was with Sarah's group of friends (Taylor was in it). I was made fun of and talked about by my old friends for such a long time.  As for Oscar, I started going out with him again. So, what did that result in? Me not hanging out with Sarah and her friends  anymore; she hated Oscar. So I hung out with his friends. That's when I became good friends with Haleigh. That's how it stayed for a really long time. Towards the end of the year, Oscar broke up with me. All I had was Haleigh and she was never a good shoulder to cry on. So I went to Sarah and stayed with her. Pretty soon Summer was my friend again. It was all so confusing.

Eighth Grade:
This grade was one of the most consistent years I've ever had and I'm so happy about it! I hung out with Summer, Sarah, Megan, Amanda, Sarah, Mckenzie (a different Mckenzie from the beginning), Caity (a new student), and Courtney (another new student). We were a humble group, but we were close and happy!! But then for some reason Summer and Megan I guess started not to like me. Pretty soon Caity didn't like me either. Amanda and Courtney didn't mind me, but they weren't as friendly to me as they once were. That year I had been quite a quiet girl because I had learned to keep my mouth closed, since I guess it had caused me some problems in the past. So one day, at lunch, Megan tells me not to sit with them. I was so confused. I mean, I've never done anything to them. I've always been so nice to them! So for the rest of eighth grade I was pretty alone. I still had Sarah, since they stopped sitting with Summer and all, but we were never as close as we used to be. So I was depressed a lot because I felt alone. I also had insomnia a lot that year, towards the end of the year, so I was out of school a lot.

At the end of the year I moved and made new wonderful friends at a great new school!! I've been loving it and wish to never go back to that school where I was taken for granted and mistreated. These girls at my new school are like me and accept me for ME. I want nothing more. I am so glad to have made that change. I know some day there will be tension and feud between me and some other girl, but for now I'll appreciate what I have for friends. I have no really close friends because I've learned not to get too attached to people because they will someday leave you. Or maybe they won't, who knows?

By the way, I'll be writing in a slightly larger font because I find the old font harder to read. I know this has been a long post, I'm sorry for those who have read this whole thing. I really feel quite crappy so I'll go to bed, I think. Good night!! Hope this post enlightened someone!! ❤❤❤




Food Diary 4

I've been forgetting to record my calorie intake, since I've been sick. So, good thing I have a good memory of what I eat, because I recorded everything last night when I still had the effects of my medicine and feeling slightly better; I felt good enough to blog. So, I'm in school right now writing this; I'm in study. I didn't think I should have gone to school since I'm having a hard time talking and I've had a really bad cough since this morning. I don't know what I have, but I think I need to go to my doctor or something, because I'm getting worse everyday. So, anyways, since I was late on recording my calories, I am late posting my calories. I have some more things to blog today, but I don't know if I'll get to it, because I'm feeling pretty sick and all I really want to do right now is go home, lay in bed, and drink some hot tea (^_^) that would be great right about now. Too bad my aunt is working, she could come pick me up at school. Oh boo.

Here's my calories consumed in the past week:

***p.s. I'm trying to write this so it looks neater, because I noticed the numbers looked all jumbled and out of place on my past food diary posts. I'm basically making the numbers line up.

Monday:         263
Tuesday:        135
Wednesday:  166
Thursday:      279
Friday:            252
Saturday:       200
Sunday:          336

Total:                1632


I know this post is longer than usual, but I just keep on getting ideas. Maybe my sick brain works better than my normal brain (>.>) So, something I've noticed about the numbers of calories I eat in a day, is that they are very low! This is the amount I eat. I don't eat if I'm full and I'm barely ever hungry. It's like I just eat what I can and if  I'm not hungry anymore, I don't eat anymore. I find myself forgetting to eat and skipping meals because I just don't have an appetite. I don't know if I have something wrong with me because these amounts are too low for a person my age, height, weight, etc.

So, what do you think? Do I not eat enough? What do you think is wrong with me?

❤My New Obsession❤

I shouldn't  be blogging because I'm sick with a head cold or maybe strep throat.. i don't know. All I know is my throat is on fire, I have the chills, a low grade fever, heat flashes, a cough, and a stuffy nose plus nasal pressure. I love winter, but i hate the evil colds it brings with it. Ugh, I hate cold season.


So I should get to talking about my new obsession!! Earlier today, I discovered some j-magazine scans. I downloaded Ageha!! I've never read Ageha that much. but now that I look at it, I think it's wonderful!! Everything is so pretty!!  I love the special effects they put on their pictures!! So cute!! For some reason I couldn't find a download for anything newer than February 2011!! Oh boo. I love Ageha because the style and makeup in it is still young and girly, while also being more mature than Egg, Popteen, etc. So I would love to come across some newer issues of the magazine if any.



➜➜➜Excuse me if I leave any misspellings and such; I took some cold medicine and I can't really concentrate since it's making me very drowsy. My vision is very blurry.  Now of course there's spell check, but sometimes I still find I make spelling mistakes when I proofread. Perhaps the words I misspell turn out to be actual words?

So, you wanna see some of my favourite pictures from Ageha February 2011???
Well, of course you do!! Haha, maybe you don't, but I'm going to show you anyways (^_^)

Here you go:
*** I'm not going to put captions because; one: I'm too tired; and two: the pictures can explain themselves with their amazingness and cuteness!!

♩♪♫❤Early Winter❤♫♪♩

Today was such a cold, frosty winter morning. No snow yet, but I can just feel it coming soon!! (^_^) I can't wait till it snows for the first time!!! I love, love, love winter!!! When I walked out the door this morning I started singing an old favourite song that reminded me of mornings like this.

Here are the lyrics to it:


Early Winter by: Gwen Stefani 

You, you know how to get me so low
My heart had a crash when we spoke
I can't fix what you broke
You, you always have a reason
Again & again this feelin'
Why do I give in?
& I always was, always was one for crying
I always was one for tears

The sun's getting cold, It's snowing
Looks like an Early Winter for us
Looks like an Early Winter for us
An Early Winter
Oh I need you to turn me over

It's sad the map of the world is on you
The moon gravitates around you
The seasons escape you
& I always was, always was one for crying
I always was one for tears
No, I never was, never was one for lying
You lied to me all of these years


The sun's getting cold, It's snowing
Looks like an Early Winter for us
Looks like an Early Winter for us
An Early Winter
Oh I need you to turn me over

Why?
Why do you act so stupid?
Why?
You know that I'm always right

It looks like an Early Winter for us
It hurts & I can't remember sunlight
An Early Winter for us
The leaves are changing colour for us
& it gets too much, yeah it gets so much
Starting over & over & over again
& it gets too much, yeah it gets so much
Starting over & over & over again
& it gets too much, yeah it gets so much
It looks like an Early Winter for us

Favourites From Jelly and Happie Nuts

So, you know I was reading Happy Nuts and Jelly magazines, sooo I thought I should post some of my favourite pages!! I know, yeah so exciting, right?? I love how the fashion in these both focus on cute, fashionable warmness!!! (^_^) I LOVE cute fashionable warmness!!! I noticed that a lot of the outfits have boot, including Uggs!! Those are my favourite shoes in my closet and now I can wear them while being cute and warm!! I know, I rambling, so here are the pages I thought were AMAZING!! You might wonder why so I have been so kind as to include captions telling you why!! (^_^)

These are from Happi Nuts:
I find the outfit to the right very appealing; it's like my favourite things just gyaru; pretty feminine top, skinny jeans.... and UGGS!!!!!

I like this because of the sweater dress!! I love sweater dresses, but I can never find one that is off the shoulder, loose, and short.

I love this whole outfit head to toe; the coat ❤ the little black dress, the purse,and the thigh high boots!! I usually don't like thigh high boots, but in this case i love it!!

Why I like this one? It's like the Victoria's Secret of gyaru!! Look cute and frilly and absolutely positively pompomtastical it is!!

This makeup is so natural and pretty compared to most gyaur makeup. She's not even wearing falsies, which is very different compared to most gyaru makeup. Just everything about it is pure, clean, and simply gyaru!!

These are from Jelly: 
-for some reason the pictures from Jelly are smaller than the pictures from Happie Nuts and it made me OCD

I like this because of the feel of the picture; the adorableness and sweetness of it. I also very much like the trench coat (^_^)




 I think this picture is so cute!! And there, yet again, is a perfect sweater dress!! I don't know, but for some reason I can relate to the girl in the photo. Haven't we all had that time when we sit on the counter and eat marshmallow fluff out of the container with a spoon


 I absolutely love the outfit on the right!! The shirt is fuzzy and adorable, the pants are skinny and comfy looking, and the shoes are CUTE (@.@) and the purse is nice!


 I like the picture on the bottom right, it's a cute outfit. Again, I'm loving the trend of sweaters and Uggs!


This is the cover model!! Isn't she so pretty?? She is so fresh faced and cute and natural looking! I love it!! (^_^)


Why this photo? Hello the puffy coats and two tone hair!! I love coats; fluffy, stylish coats in particular!! And I love the models' hair; all dark on the top and light on the bottom, it reminds me of my own hair right now!!
