A Beauty Haul

Hello everyone!

Today I went shopping (again)! xD I know I know! You must think that I'm crazy, but I can't help myself! It can get so addicting sometimes all the time. I don't know how Violet does it browsing through all that stuff without buying anything, but what I do know is that she has a lot of self control (Which I think I need to work on. Time to go back to my "hermit" shell...). On a serious note, I actually went to the mall to pick up some items that I will definitely need in the future if I ever wanted to improve and perfect the himegyaru look. I mean I'm pretty sure that I don't want to go on relying on the "Bump-its" stage forever...

Before I show you the haul however, I have some good news to share. Remember a few posts back that I had been going on and on about hating the blurred macro focus quality pictures for a while now and how I wanted to buy a new camera so badly? Well it turns out that my dad has a Canon Powershot A1100 IS, which long story short is definitely better than my current camera, having 12.1 megapixels instead of 6. :) So now I don't have to worry about the picture quality anymore, though feel free to let me know about the quality.

Stylize Velcro Rollers

Location: Shoppers Drug Mart
Price: $16.99 CDN
Thoughts: Yup! I got rollers! I didn't actually have rollers before so I got them. When I went to Shoppers Drug Mart (actually it's at every drug store), they have individual packs in just only one size at around $4-5. Now I wanted just the big ones, but they only have 4 rollers in a pack, which I'm pretty sure that in order to get the hairstyle right, I might need more than that. So I got this bulky set instead. Sure it might seem expensive at first ($16.99), but it's worth it when you consider that there are 31 pieces in here. That's a lot of pieces. I can't wait to give them a try. ^^

Aussie Aussome Volume Hair Spray

Location: Shoppers Drug Mart
Price: $3.29 CDN, was originally around $5.00 CDN 
Thoughts: While I was in the hair aisle deciding on which hair spray to get, I happen to find the Aussie sprays on sale at the time and decided to get the Aussome Volume one. Along with the rollers, I didn't buy both the rollers and the hairspray immediately at the time, since I wanted to compared the prices of similar items found at Walmart. Unfortunately, Walmart doesn't have the huge pack of velcro rollers (they however do have those foam rollers) and the Aussie spray was a little more expensive than the one at Shoppers. What I found interesting was that while I was at Walmart, they have these Fructis Style Crystal Resist Volume Hairsprays (at least that's what I think it was called) on sale for a limited time. I think it might be a new hairspray, since I couldn't find anything like it at the shelves and I couldn't find any reviews for it either. What do you think? 

That's all for now. For the next posts, I will be focusing more on craft projects and less on hauls, since I'm pretty sure that you are all tired from it by now. I'm pretty much all set when it comes to hair stuff, so here's to practicing on doing the hime puff hairstyle. ^_^  


  1. How exciting! I use straighteners to curl my hair, but I wonder about getting some rollers.. I'm so much more inspired by hime gyaru eye make up and hair than Lolita hair and makeup!

  2. @The Glass Princess ^^ Well you have plenty of room to practice the big pouf that's for sure. I can't wait to use these and see how it goes.

  3. Nice buys ^^ I love the roller set! i use rollers all the time :) I hope they work well with you! ^^

  4. @Lita Thank you Lita! I can't wait to use them! So many different kinds I can use and try out! :D
