a canadian beauty, travel, and cosplay blog


online shopping addiction

So, I've just spent the last 3 hours browsing wholesale clothing websites, Etsy, eBay, etc. Before that, I spent an hour lurking lookbook accounts as I browsed through different outfits to give me inspiration.

This is what I've ordered so far:

White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland necklace - Etsy. (bought the only one, hehe!)

SD Card reader - so I can download the pictures and files off my phone/ load more games onto my R4. I think Alice was getting a bit annoyed that I kept asking to borrow hers.

Lacey Apricot/Pink coloured skirt. Not so sure about the quality, but it was only around $7.
It's cute, hopefully the quality isn't too bad.

wholesale Hot Sell Edging Studded Shoulder Bag Camel
Shoulder bag! I need one. I don't have any cute shoulder bags, only totes and handbags!
Hopefully the bag comes in the same colour as the picture. It would match my really nice shoes that I bought a while back! (The ones in my Mio cosplay )

I'll review the items when they arrive! Super excited! 



Recently, I was watching Ackson's new video;

When I noticed what looked like Tissue Hime in the background.


For those who don't know who Tissue Hime is, he's basically a crossdressing bass guitar player who became extremely popular on the japanese video hosting website called Nico Nico Douga.
He has amazing bass guitar playing skills, and has performed many covers of japanese/anime songs.

Sorry for the random post, I just really love Tissue Hime. XD Never expected anybody to cosplay him!
(Or, what if that actually WAS him? :O??) I hope to learn bass and maybe one day become as great of a bass guitar player as him! 



I've always loved patterned tights.

Recently, I've noticed that many girls at my school/fashion bloggers online have picked up on this trend. I love it.

Being the tall girl that I am, standing at five foot nine-and-a-half inches, I've wanted to wear tights. I have very long legs, so a little voice in the back of my head has kept pestering at me to showcase them by wearing cute patterned tights. Before I can get to the mall, reason counters with "It's too cold to wear tights, so there's no point~!"

It's winter here in Canada, and we have a good amount of snow. I get cold quite easily, therefore I tend to steer clear of wearing leggings or tights in the winter/fall/early spring seasons. Plus, I have to sit through a 45 minute cold bus ride in the morning on my way to school. ( I know, so many excuses.)

I'm trying to break out of this habit of comfort > style, but it's kind of hard.

Two weeks ago, I was at the mall and passed Bebe. A mannequin in the window had the prettiest pair of sheer black tights with little black bows on them, and I fell in love. I went back on the weekend to buy them and found that they were sold out. Which made me very sad.

I don't give up that easily! When God shuts a door, he opens a window. An internet window, to be exact.  I went online. Here are some cute tights that I found!

(These were found on eBay. If you want to find cute cheap tights, search 'Women's tights' or something along those lines. Most come from wholesale shops/warehouses in China, so the price ranges between $2-$8, usually with free shipping)

The ones that I saw in the window of Bebe were like the first picture. Although the grey ribbon rights on the right are cute as well!

I also tried putting together an outfit that I would wear with the tights. I don't really own any clothes like the following picture, but it was fun putting it together! Hopefully my fashion sense doesn't really prove to be that bad.

I was going for the cute/girly/casual look. (Heavily inspired by what I've been seeing in gyaru blogs and japanese fashion magazines.) This outfit is mainly from forever21 (I just went on the website and picked out some pieces!) I love whites/pinks/light browns, so I tried to incorporate that into this outfit.

Components of this outfit (click on the listed and you'll be directed to the actual webpage where it's being sold):
