I know, the past two videos I've made on my channel are reviews. But, I only give my honest opinion on how I feel about products given to me~
The FIRST video is a hair extension review sponsored by Irresistible Me. I purchased one set, and was given one set. Giving my own opinion, I think that both sets are actually very similar despite the big difference in prices. The only big thing is that the color on the Royal Remi extensions looked a little better and the hair was softer. Make sure to watch my video for the full review! I just started coloring the Royal Remi extensions to match my hair color now, and I must say that it hasn't been easy coloring these extensions, so I really recommend requesting a color match so that they do it for you. One reason is because the process of coloring these extensions is a long one since (in a previous hair extension coloring tutorial I've done before) I'm starting with toning the hair to a grey, then add blue, then lately add black to achieve the ombre: this makes it difficult to color with color getting everywhere and the extensions tangling. I mean I managed, but now I know that it would be better if you request that they color a certain color to match your hair (unless you want to experiment with hair coloring of course). For the second set of extensions, I will make a hair coloring tutorial when I can and maybe color it a more fun color? Maybe a color I haven't tried before. Pink? Red? Or maybe even purple? I'm still deciding ^^
The SECOND video is another circle lens video! I was so excited to receive two lenses from PinkyParadise because I previously purchased from their site before. So this is my second review of their site. They sell many well known circle lens brands like GEO, G&G, EOS, Princess Pinky, and many more. This time I picked out two lenses by G&G that I knew I would love, and been wanting to get. I must say that the G&G Tulips Blue is by far my favorite lens mainly because of the appearance. it's actually comfortable, very natural, but the flower effect is just so different from any lens I've had. G&G lenses are starting to be my favorite brand. Go watch the full review!
DISCLAIMER: I was sponsored these products, NOT paid to make a review.
I have actually been thrifting a lot! The video shows some pieces that I picked up for very inexpensive prices. Here is why I love thrifting:
-Finding one-of-a-kind pieces
-Thrill of finding something great
There's so much more to it, and so many ways to go about it. Some have requested that I make a video showing how I actually go about thrifting. Hmm...maybe! I will keep it in mind and next time I go, I will show you around^^
I definitely find pieces that are different from things you see as a department store. Also if you are in love with vintage pieces, then thrifting is great for you! If you are on a budget then go thrifting for some pieces that you will love! The hardest part to it is finding a great thrift store. The first thing is to find your nearest thrift store, then find a chain thrift store (Goodwill, Savers, Crossroads, etc), if you can't come across anything good in those thrift store then I recommend going on Yelp to see what is close and has great items!
There is a thrill to thrifting and that is to find something amazing! To me, it is like a surprise to find something great and it really makes my day (also, hold on to the item because you don't know when someone else will steal it from you). I usually get inspired to thrift by watching thrift hauls by other YouTubers. I always see girls picking up pieces that are amazing, inexpensive, brand name, and great quality. There are also many time where I think (How did you even find that?!) Well, it is a combination of luck and searching!
Search well, and go thrift for yourself. I'm sure it will be fun!
Hello loves! I'm totally over a week late with posting anything about Valentine's Day. But, it's okay! There's always next year, and also there doesn't have to be a special day to give a gift, dress up for a date, or wear stunning red colors.
The video below is my makeup look for Taeyeon's Rain MV, the look was also the perfect colors for Valentine's day. Maybe next year, I will make a look suited for Valentine's day date and some things to do on Valentine's day. How does that sound?
I'm also not sponsored or anything, but if you want to send some chocolate to a special someone or just give it as a gift I found out about Chocomize.com, where you can customize your own bar of chocolate and even a message to send to someone or to give to yourself as a treat. I was very unsure at first how the chocolate would taste, but once I received the chocolates, I just thought it was really good! They have some macarons on their site also, so it's not just only chocolate. I love anything about food, so I could probably talk about chocolate all day xD.
So that is all. I hope your Valentine's day was amazing! If you didn't do anything that's okay, because I didn't either. You don't need a date with someone to have fun^^
Much Love! I also hope you enjoyed the makeup tutorial :3
Why did I want a new theme? How do you choose a "theme right for you?
Actually, I don't know why I chose this white/blue theme. It just came to me as I was editing photos. I thought that this theme would look better on my Instagram feed then my old faded theme. It just looks more pleasing to the eye, and suits me a little better. I chose the theme around an accent of blue color because I love the color blue, and my hair is also blue. I also have colors of grey, black, and white in my photos to go with the color blue. Most of my closet consist of those colors already so it's simple for me. I know...so many people are doing themes, but I just see a theme as something appealing to the eye. Of course, the content that I post is important too. I wouldn't want to post photos of just blue objects, as that would be a little bland for you to look at also.
Well, to get this bluish white color I take pictures usually in front of white backgrounds and of white and blue objects. Then, I use Meitu Pic and VSCO cam to edit. If you would like me to make a full video then leave a comment and I will plan to make a video on my YouTube channel on how I edit my new Instagram photos using this theme.
To choose a theme, I recommend that you look at your surrounding and see what colors are around you and what colors you love most and make your theme around those colors. Remember that photos still need to have some variety and some meaning. I've known someone before who post the same photos all the time with the same pose etc., it get's tiring to look at and creates no meaning. I also revolve a lot of photos around simplicity. When there is too much to look at in a photo, it distracts the eye and there is no focus. But, I'm not a photography expert in any way. There are many other blog posts on how you should take the best Instagram photos, and I'm not someone to give the best advice as I am learning this art for myself. But remember to just have fun with it! It is something that you will look back on, something I call a memory. Something little for me to share~I hope you enjoyed^^
I'm the type that loves to be comfortable and look nice, even when I'm not going out. During winter break, it was cold and I was really lazy at times to dress up. If no one saw me, I could wear the same outfit for 3 days in a row! I loved wearing big loose sweaters or t-shirts with leggings. To me, it was really stylish to take pictures in, but it was also very comfortable. I usually change out of my sleepwear even when I'm going to be home to whole day. I guess I feel nice when I dress up, and feel less groggy. Of course on these kinds of days I don't go all out with accessories and such, but I still manage to throw on a sweater, some leggings, and even put on light makeup when I'm feeling like it should be a "making video" or "photoshoot" type of days. Dressing up is not for everyone, but even trying to look nice or taking the time to put on a sweater and some leggings can lighten up your day and even make you feel more awake. I think that when I take the time to look good, then I feel good. Never need to go all out, but getting ready a little doesn't hurt. <3
Their styles fit me so well! So I thought to myself, "When did this site open?" and "How come I've never checked it out before?" I love the fashion style on Mixxmix.com. Some of the clothing could be more expensive then I want it to be, but the prices are very reasonable. I just don't have money because I'm a broke college student^^. In the picture above I received the KNITTED BLACK TOP. When I opened the package I thought the top was so large on my, but when I tried it on I thought it fit perfectly. The material on Mixxmix is definitely top quality and shipping is not that expensive either so it really is worth the money! I'm not sponsored to do this, but I wouldn't make a review if I didn't really like the shop.
The second item I received is the BEIGE MOCK TURTLENECK SWEATER. I thought the size of this sweater was perfect. I bought a medium since I like sweaters to fit a little bit more loose, and the material of this sweater is really nice also. The fabrics feel like they are sturdy and will last a long time which I love! Also Mixxmix USA even featured the picture on the right on their Instagram page. I was so happy when that happened!
Overall, I loved the pieces I received. I also received a pair of socks also for only $2.50! I will also have a video review of Mixxmix on my YouTube channel as soon as I get the chance to film it. I will also have a YesStyle review with it! I just need to wait until the items come in. My YouTube channel is featured in my ABOUT ME page, so check it out when you have time! Also click the pictures above for the link of the items I received on Mixxmix. See you next time!
Matching couple looks are in! I see this all over the internet and it stems from Asia. So people walk around with their significant other or even best friend and most of the time their outfits coordinate with each other. I just thought it's fun and different. In a way it shows the level of friendship you have with that person. It also shows that you both took the time to pick out your outfits.
Of course there are many people that think it's odd or too quirky, but I love it. It shows some creativity. You can match with your close ones and there is a sense of unity about having coordination. What do you think about it?
I didn't put this under the world trends tab since I might discontinue the tab and continue with blogging about my own styles instead. This is just one thing that caught my eye lately and is very TRENDY! But I love the creativity within it!
I used to have a different thoughts about matte lipsticks. I saw so many reviews on NYX matte lipsticks that I thought I had to try out! I went over to my local ULTA and picked out a couple for only $4 each! I thought that it was a great price for lipsticks since many lipsticks can range from $6 to $10. The ones that I picked up the first time I went were in the colors Alabama, Merlot, and Maison. My favorite out of the three is Alabama which is the dark red out of the bunch. Merlot looks like pinky-red kind of color and Maison is a brown color. Maison isn't my favorite because the brown color doesn't match my lips well, so I have to find an occasion to wear that kind of color.
Yesterday I picked up a couple more NYX matte colors. This time I chose the soft cream matte colors that I didn't find last time since they had to restock. I got the colors Monte Carlo and Transylvania. Monte Carlo is a dark red color, but it shows up on my lips to be a brighter red. Of course, it would look different on others depending on the pigments that your lips are made up of. Most reviews that I have seen said that Transylvania showed up almost black, so I was hesitant to try it out, but I actually loved it! The color actually shows up as a deep burgundy color on my lips, but if I layer it on a lot it could end up being a very dark color. I love the color anyways, and I can't wait to wear all colors more often!
I'm the type of girl who's fascinated by circle lenses and how they change the way you look. I really love the nice appearance of eyes and when I was younger my eyes were too sensitive to have false eyelashes or circle lenses, but since last year I've been loving them! I started wearing lashes from Eyecandys.com last year and I was in love with the way they made my eyes look. My eyes have soon adjusted to wearing circle lenses without being overly sensitive to them.
Lately I bought 3 pairs from Pinkyparadise.com and it's my first time purchasing from the website and I'm surprised by how comfortable the lenses are. I really love that the website has a bigger variety of lenses than Eyecandys.com. Although Eyecandys has better deals and usually are less expensive. I was looking for more natural and comfortable lenses and I love the ones that I received!
Feel free to watch my review below to see how I feel about each pair of lenses I received.
Remember that circle lenses get some getting used to so if you are starting out I really recommend these three pairs since they are on the smaller, more comfortable side.
You would think there is a small selection of things to wear in the winter because of its cold weather. The best thing to do in the winter is to layer. I always layer on a cardigan for warmth and to look nice. You can also do this with a large coat. I had on 3 layers in the picture on the right. I had a thermal under everything, the button up, and then a cardigan to add the warmth.
I love the season of layering, because I think there is a bigger variety to what I can wear. I also love layering outerwear!
Sweaters are my favorite also. If you don't have that cardigan that you would love to have then layer on a sweater and some jeans/leggings. What I do to make it look nicer is to layer something underneath the sweater whether it is another shirt or a button up. It definitely adds to the look!
I hope your winter won't be way too cold. Make sure to dress nice and comfortable at the same time. Play around with textiles and colors. I usually just put it on and if it looks good when I see it in the mirror then I'm good to go!
