☆Liz Lisa Summer 2015 Lucky Bag Unboxing☆

It has been awhile since I posted anything on Youtube! So here goes… my very first lucky bag from Liz Lisa!!! It’s the Summer 2015 version from Tokyo Otaku Mode. As of today, it is still on sale! So grab it if you can if you are a HUGE LIZ LISA FAN!

As you can see I was out of breath most of the time cuz I was just super excited that I finally have one of their lucky bags! I’m so using it as a carry on when I go to Cancun this September for my bachelorette party!

Hope you enjoyed the video!

Jamberry First Impression!

I first saw Jamberry on facebook where I had a friend sell them. They looked super cute on pictures.

Here’s my first time trying them out:
 photo IMAG0814_1_zpsntouzspd.jpg

Cute right?! And I didn’t use any nail polish!

What Jamberry is, is that it’s a sticky press-on nail design. Using heat, it’ll stick to your nail and it lasts really long like gel-like nails. Now, you can do your own manicure and stick this baby on your nails! I was pretty impressed with this.

Here’s a video on youtube on how to put them on:

Here’s what I used:
Of course you need to order some Jamberry nails

My materials I used around the house:
-I forgot to take a pic of some scissors. So you will need that too.

Here are my natural nails:

And the finished product of my right hand!!!
 photo IMAG0812_zpsputh2ap8.jpg

And my left hand:
 photo IMAG0813_zps9ffzexc8.jpg

Pros:
– Very easy to get the hang of, must need practice though.
– No nail polish smell.
– Very cute design that does not take hours to do!
– Took me about 45 minutes on my first try doing this for both hands!
– No drying time!!!

Cons:
– Hard to remove some bubbles underneath once put on, but like I said, there’s some needed practice to remove the bubbles off underneath.

Now, as a nurse, I find this really handy since we are not allowed to have cracked, chipped nail polish on our hands. And I can’t afford lots of time to remove and put gel nails again and again. Not while I’m put on call and such. So I’m hoping these can last long for me. I’ll be washing my hands a lot during work and I’ll update this post once I see a little wear and tear on these nails. But for now, I’m pretty excited about how they look!!!

If interested just go here:

Let me know if you are trying them out! Good luck!

UPDATE!!

Ok so in ONE WEEK… these are my jamberry nails:
 photo IMAG0839_zpsolcmv5ou.jpg

 photo IMAG0840_zpsowjgtbio.jpg

As you can see, I had to remove them in ONE week due to them coming off already 😦

They get caught on my long hair and I couldn’t stand it when I shampooed my hair.

BUT! I will not give up yet. Jammin’ With KeLeigh has given me hope that I probably have a “DOME SHAPED” nail shape. And that I’d have to use the Baseball method. Which is right here:

And she was sweet enough to send me a free sample of more Jamberry nails!!!! So check out the expert on these nails if you want to try some out! Just contact her! So, until then, I will try try again!

Spreepicky In Depth Review

Hi all! I wanted to do an in depth review of my purchase with Spreepicky!

 photo logo_zpsiqrkis7t.png

First, I want to introduce you Sweetie Rose Thickening Sweater Dress
 photo P1080098_zpsd588e795.jpg
 photo P1080097_zps2e0b33eb.jpg
 photo P1080104_zps2f546b65.jpg

I love how this sweater is a dress because you can pair it with some thigh highs or stockings or even leggings! It can have various looks if you just get creative with it. The only downside I don’t like is that it’s very wooly and it can come off the sweater. I’m really wondering how to wash this. It may be separate from other clothes or by hand. But it is really comfy and stretchy. The shoulders are see-through and lacey which gives it such a girly touch. Reminds me of the Liz Lisa brand.

The next purchase I bought is Lovely Donut hoodie Jumper Treats

 photo P1080130_zps0cfe1570.jpg
 photo P1080132_zps3021764f.jpg

What I love about this sweater is that it gives you that cuteness look! And like the Sweetie Rose Thickening Sweater Dress, this one can be paired with many things as well!!! I love the quality and the warmth this brings. Just… just.. too much kawaii! Any cons about this product would probably be the price. But other than that, I think it’s worth it if you want to add more kawaii to your closet.

This last one is Pastel Galaxy Stars Loose Long Jumper Top

 photo P1080148_zpsd2d49acd.jpg
 photo P1080150_zpsc6a999c6.jpg

This sweater is sooo cute with it’s pastel colors of the galaxy! I love the design of this and again, like the other two sweaters this can be paired with many clothes as well. The only biggest con for this product is that it is not very stretchy. So just keep that in mind if you want this sweater. It really is not stretchy at all. It fits size small or petite.

Pros: The material is sooo adorable! I love how it fits me just right for being “one-size”
Cons: It’s not too stretchy, which can be too tight for some other users.

Cute Kawaii Slouched Bow Bag

Hi there! First of all I wanted to say that I bought this bag with my own money and this was not at all sponsored… With that said, here’s my review!

 photo 2014-10-02_164309_zpsca0791f3.jpg

I bought this at Cute Kawaii store.

Here are some closeups of the bag with my glasses ^^

 photo IMAG0253_zps455e271d.jpg

 photo IMAG0254_zpsc75e9e9a.jpg

The very front pocket with the lace does not open out. Just on the sides where I just placed my glasses.

 photo IMAG0255_zps459bf426.jpg

This is what the inside looks like. I love the fact that it has some pockets on the inside for my phone, ipod, or whatever that is needed.
 photo IMAG0256_zps1710c495.jpg

This shows how much a small book fits.
 photo IMAG0257_zps663100bc.jpg

Easily adjust the straps to your liking.

Small back pocket in the back.
