DIY Wedding Mascots^^

What's the picture in my avatar here in blogger? It's my wedding mascot!

Ladies and Gentleman, please meet the groom and the bride!

This all came from a doodle that I did, plus some 2 weeks for sewing them to make them alive!

Even on wedding day, the groom is not quite finished...

The doll's wedding gown was inspired by Vera Wang's bridal gown, "Bouquet"

I especially like the juxtapositioning of different layers of delicate laces...

What do you guys think?

Canmake Melty Nude Lips 04 Peach Beige

Canmake Melty Nude Lip in 04 Peach Beige

One of the items I got from my beauty haul is the Canmake Melty Nude Lip in 04 Peach Beige.

I think it has been my obsession to achieve a nude lip look that has been so popular lately in Asia. My reasoning behind it is with a neutral looking lips, more attention can be given on the eye make up (yes I love putting time into making my eyes look pretty!)

Let's take a look:

Canmake Melty Nude Lip in its pretty casing

The packaging looks so sleek with copper chrome finish... but it also means finger printing all over the lipstick.

Swatch on my hand:

Swatch appears to be more pinkish

Lippie on my own lips:
(FYI, I am a NC-30)
Natural daylight

Under fluorescent lighting, it appears more beige

After thoughts? I think this lip stick is quite matte in my opinion, it's not a bad lip stick because it is quite moisturizing, but I prefer a hint of gloss a little more so I would pair it up with Nudy Lip Glow over it to achieve my desired look.

Parcel arrived!! Sneak of my haul!!

Glimpse of my beauty haul!

The beauty parcel from Lala has arrived this morning! Thanks to EMS, it only takes 2.5 days from Hong Kong!

I just lay it out quickly on my desk and is still in shock and happy about the package from Lala

As I am heading out, I will be reporting on the items I got from this haul later!

Once again, thanks Lala!

Kanebo KATE Crystallise Quartz Eyeshadow

Kanebo KATE Crystallise Quartz Eyeshadow

One of the items that I have my friend Lala. to send me in the heavily loaded beauty package is the above KATE eyeshadow palette. 
KATE Crystallise Quartz Eyeshadows are available for Spring 2011 in Japan. Total of 5 colors, PK-1, BR-1, BR-2, GR-1, and PU-1
I have not owned any of KATE's eyeshadow but I have heard great things about them from Japanese users that I am friends with on my iphone games :) Interestingly a lot my Japanese gamer friends recommend KATE for its affordable price and quality. 
Let’s have a look!
Product details from KATE's website

My friend, Miss A. was sending the package from Hong Kong and at that time KATE Crystallise Quartz Eyeshadows are still not on sale in drugstores like Watsons and Mannings. But on the day before she was planning to send out my package, she spotted them and pick them up for me! I have requested her to get me BR-1 and GN-1 for me and I will be posting them here when I receive them!

It’s my addiction to shiny, shimmery, and sparkly things.
Also, here's KATE’s website in English located at

However, I think their English website is not quite updated and I got the recent spring product info from their Japanese site at

Incoming Beauty Package alert!!

A preview of my beauty items prior to shipment^^

My friend Lala. is mailing me a bunch of stuff from Hong Kong.

Lala is a very nice friend of mine and she helped me gathered the punch list I sent her back in late January in order to satisfy my cravings for the newly released Japanese eyeshadow palettes and a bunch of other skin care items, such as skin serums, eye masks, special gold leaf oil soap bar, etc...

Details will follow when I receive this package in a few days!

I can't wait. I am so excited!! Thank you, Lala.!!

Sweet Lolita

Sweet Lolita, kawaii^^
Sweet Lolita:

It's a continuation from "Black Lolita," instead of black swarovski crystals, I used creamy white freshwater pearls instead, and the overall effect is a subtle, sweet princess look.

Overall size and length on me^^

Gothic Lolita

Gothic Lolita, posed on my Money Tree Pot!!

This pair of earrings is inspired by grand chandelier found in ancient castles, and I have created this piece of earrings around Halloween, for a spooky, gothic feeling!

I used all sterling silver components with this piece, with the glamour of black swarovski crystals.  The delicate chains move along with your body movement, I really like this dynamic aspect of the piece!

This is how the piece looks on me^^

I have been blogging in Yahoo! Blog for sometime but unfortunately most of the entries were written in Chinese, and I hope to share my blog with more users, and hence I started fresh on this blog.

Moving on from my old blog.

What should I blog about here? The first thing that came to my mind are all my little DIY projects, anywhere from crafting to jewelry making, or mini beauty hauls inspired by other beauty bloggers like Lotus Palace, the Muse, and Fuzkittie?

(though I know I am anywhere close to being resourceful as them... *blush* but I will try... in the end I am a girl that like to play with makeup, haha!)

Perhaps I should first blog about my craft projects in my next blog?
