I'm back ♥ NOTD + hauls [pic heavy]

Hello loves & new followers! I'm back from Oahu with a few things to share ♥

Glad to say that the shipping nightmare is over and the new toy should be arriving tomorrow! Last week I finally got around to yanking out my tail lights (one had a crack on the bottom) and stealing swapping em for the boytoy's pristine ones. Effed my poor, brittle nails in the process... which I guess was good, because they'd been needing a new look!

Hime-gyaru inspired NOTD

What I used:
- 2 coats OPI "Oh So Glam!"
- 1 coat Ulta Super sheer nail gloss "Princess"
- 1 coat Wet N Wild "Kaleidescope" glitter
- 1 coat Nailene acrylic strong topcoat
- Konad nail art rhinestone stickers

It turned out a metallic milky pink w/ silver glitter. Looks like doodoo in the pix but a lot nicer in real life. My fav part was the nail art stickers, I bought them from the craft fair I wrote about awhile ago and they are SO CUTE!

Unfortuneately they do not last very long, even with top coat, unless I needed to add a lot more :/ I've had them on for only 3 days and plenty of the stones are peeling off :(

↓ My favorite was my thumb ^^

Onto hauls! ♥
Sorry if you don't like reading long posts, I interspersed with some mini overviews about my thoughts on the products :P

From Don Quijote:
  • Sana concealer (light beige)
    This is really lightweight and goes on smooth. Coverage is sheer but I haven't worked with it enough to know if I like it or not... it's just so cute!
  • Shiseido Water in Lip lipbalm (Unscented & Raspberry)
    Super smooth and creamy, moisturizing. The pink one smells great!
  • 24hour waterproof eyebrow pencil & liquid
    Idk the brand but it was expensive -_- haven't used it yet but I did swatch it on my hand, rubbed it around and it didn't budge! Promising!
  • 3 NYX nail polishes There's extras for a reason (;
  • NYX cupcake gloss... they're just so cute! There's extras for a reason (;
  • 3 NYX round lipstick (Orange soda) There's extras for a reason (;Creamy & lovely slight peachy nude ♥
  • Kanebo Naive facial cleansing foam (aloe)This stuff is super creamy and rich and leaves my skin feeling ultra-squaky clean. Smells good too.
  • Hair brush
  • Gatsby hair dye for the MisterJapanese dye is pretty much the shit. His hair is now exactly the same color on the box.
  • 2 Pairs Red Cherry falsies
  • Don Quijote spray hand sanitizer
    Cause I can't resist the DonKi penguin XD
  • Don Quijote lip balm

From Sephora:
  • I ♥ Sephora brush set.
    Saw it in a magazine and fell in love. Have not used yet, but the bristles are super soft!
  • Philosophy Purity made simple one-step facial cleanser (not pictured).
    I expected to be WOWED with this cleanser for some reason... but to me, it was just Okay.

From iKandy:
  • Pink cupcake charm = SO KAWAII!
  • Turquoise heart throb tee. I am no "heart throb" :P but it was one of the few size smalls she had. I love it though!

Represent ♥

From Marukai mart:
  • 3 Rilakkuma/Korilakkuma folders. Yay!
  • Falsies... wanted to try them out. I donno the brand.
  • Mini wet wipes... again, one of those things that's just so cute, you have to get it.
  • Dr. Grip Korilakkuma pen. Another $12 wasted (I just bought a similar one), but I just can't help myself! ~_~

And now, what I REALLY went up for...
From Nordstrom Rack:

I've been needing an actual wallet even though I don't carry much cash around... lovesit!

I bought this earlier today and deeply regret it, as later in the day I came upon the Heritage Crest Baby Fluffy at Nordstrom... and decided to pass it up because I had already gotten this bag ;_; *tear* so if anyone has one of the aforementioned bag and would want to sell, PLEASE lmk :(

From LeSportsac:

I love leopard print (and any animal print)

And PENGUINS, of course! Been eyeing this print for awhile now ^^ This bag is super spacious! It has 3 big compartments + lotsa pockets

I have drooled over
Kidrobot hoodies, bags, & toys for the longest time (I really want a Labbit!) and finally got on my 1st Kidrobot bag, yay! And I found it at Ross for deals! (even though I stood in line for more than 30 min)

And... my new love ♥
What can I say... it was love @ first sight (not for my wallet). I am not much of a fan of the Heritage Stripe collection but this just called to me. The interior is pink too *dies*

I hope you don't think I only thought of myself on this trip :P I bought a lotta junk for the Mister too.. he is sucha spoiled brat but I do like to spoil my boy so that's no help either *sigh* ♥ Oh and there's a Victoria's Secret now! I went in but the lines were SOOO long so I didn't get to buy anything :(

I hope you're all having a great week, and Merry Christmas in advance!
