Liebster Blog Award

Hello everyone!

I had been given the Liebster Blog Award by the Glass Princess a few days ago! One thing I did not mention however was that she had actually given the blog award to me twice, but since I figured that I haven't done the actual award post yet, it would be treated as one time. Isn't that a convenience?

Anyway, I had been following the Glass Princess for a while now and I think that she is an excellent Lolita! With impeccable coordinates and a wonderful personality, how can she not be awesome? Plus, you can't get anymore awesome than modeling on an occasional basis! Please feel free to check her out here:

With that being said and done, let's get onto the award. Here are the rules:

1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, plus create 11 questions for the people you've tagged to answer.
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
4. Go to their page and tell them.
5. Remember, no tags back!

First off, for the 11 things about myself:

1. I have an admiration and fascination with waterfalls. They are breathtaking and beautiful creations of nature.

2. My favourite food is pho and noodles.
3. I have a little sister.

4. Most of the time, I can come up with a multitude amount of ideas in one day and maybe only one of them comes to fruition.

5. I have a bad habit of buying things that I don't need as of the moment.

6. I procrastinate a lot.

7. I usually have an intense decision making process going on in my head and therefore it takes me a long while to shop, even online.

8. When I buy something, I don't usually get back to it until at least 3 days later unless it is something I really love and can't wait for.

9. I like keeping things as new as possible.

10. My zodiac sign is Gemini.

11. I love Hello Kitty and friends. (No surprise there huh?) 

Now here are the questions that the Glass Princess asked me and my answers to them:

1. Do you have any pets?

2. Whats your favourite beauty product?
Don't really have a favourite, but I guess I'm particularly more inclined to eyeshadow and eyeliner.

3. Whats your favourite song?
As of right now, Day By Day by T-ara.

4. Whats your next purchase?
An alarm clock for sure! I want a new one and I need to prepare for the upcoming school year!

5. Whats your favourite band?
Don't really have a favourite. I just listen to what I'm in the mood for.  

6. Have you ever been to any music festivals?

7. Whats your favourite picture of you?
One of the pictures in my past outfit shots. I really love this one:

8. Do you like where you live?

9. Whats your dream item?
A Jesus Diamante dress.

10. Who is your favourite celebrity?
Don't really have a favourite. (Wow do I live under a rock)

11. If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
Japan! I'll die happy if I'm able to visit a Jesus Diamante boutique at least once. Of course, visiting other places like Shibuya 109 is not so bad either.

Now I present the award to 11 lovely people:

1.  Hime Gyaru Geisha
2. Closet Voyage
3. Cupcake Doll
4. Magic Pearl Heart
5. Nuella Source
6. Princessly Living
7. Star Princess
8. The Princess in Training
9. Jennifer's Blog
10. Like Candy Floss
11. Lita's Blog

Here are the 11 questions to the lovely people that I had picked:

1. What is your favourite colour?
2. What is your favourite food?
3. What is the fashion style that you are currently into? 
4. Are you content with your life right now? 
5. Have you visit an anime convention before?
6. What do you do on a daily basis? 
7. What would be your dream pet?

Bringing Back the Forgotten Beanie Babies

Back when I was still a child, I recall seeing these small stuffed animals sitting on store shelves behind glass windows. To the regular human naked eye, these would have just look like any other ordinary stuffed animal that are commonly sold in toy stores and toy departments, that is if it were not for the large bright red heart tags that are found on the plushies. Having the familar name "Ty" on the red heart tags, these plushies were known as the Beanie Babies back in the nineties and they used to be quite the popular toy. They were in every specialty store and quite a few had even showed up as a McDonald's happy meal toy. I had gotten a few of them before, mainly in the form of a black cat and a white tiger. Being priced at only $5, they were quite cheap and hence were easily affordable. Basically just about everyone had at least gotten one, and from then on had went on to being a collectors item. Most people had "cashed in" and collected these adorable critters in mass quantities in the hopes that they would increase in value. With the exception of the "rare" ones, they had not, at least from what I had searched up on Google. What also had differentiated the Beanie Babies from other plushies was that they were very soft in texture, and as hinted from the name, were filled with small beans.

I Just Bought a (Small) House!

Hello everyone!

Now before anyone goes all crazy on me and starts demanding for my "credentials, papers, and credit rating", no it is definitely not what it looks like or sounds like. Yes I'm aware that it sounded like I had actually bought a small house, but it really isn't. Allow me to go into farther detail!

Hime Picture Frame Tutorial/Guideline

Hello everyone!

Presenting my ever-first tutorial in a long time! It has been a while since I had done a tutorial and I have been missing them, so I am planning on creating new ones in the near future. Personally though, I don't think this is truly more of a tutorial than a detailed guideline on how to approach a project from my point of view.

Anyway for this post, we are going to be changing an old wooden picture frame into a princess bedazzled creation worthy of sitting on your shelf or where-ever you feel like putting the frame. I'm not quite sure if you all still use picture frames or not, but for me I love using picture frames. Ever since my childhood, I recall having a ton of photo frames sit on top of my bedroom shelves. Particular attention will be on two golden frames that I had for a long time.

To make a long story short, the two golden frames didn't age well. They were constantly flopping back onto the shelf because of the kickstand, which was made out of a flimsy cardboard-like material and was essentially the same material that the back was made out of. In fact, the back was one of those cardboard "cutouts" and was not a separate back stand that was built in like other picture frames. Eventually the stands were no longer "usable" and I had to lean them against the wall that's behind the shelves. Even then, the frames occasionally fell flat whenever I made a slamming sound or bump against the drawers, which are connected to the shelves.

After a long while of putting up with constantly falling picture frames, I finally had enough. Plus I think it is high time that I start personalizing the frames to make them fit my tastes, which is of course is in the hime style. Making a short trip to the nearest dollar store, I bought two black flat wooden frames for $1.50 each.

Bag Modification, Cute Stationary, Outfit Pictures, and a Juicy Couture Surprise

Hello everyone!

After what seems to be a month full of blood and sweat and tears, I am finally finished with modifying the bag that I had gotten a while back. Now if you had been around back when I had first started the blog, you would've noticed that I had gotten a large black "The Bay" bag from my mom that looks like this:

Introducing Lavender and Roses V2.0!

Hello everyone!

Just a quick short post as of now, since I am technically posting this at around 2am. Not exact ideal blogging conditions except for the sleep deprived and/or the usual insomniac...

Anyway, as you can tell by the title, I had been secretly working on revamping up the blog. In total I think it took me about 4 days? At least it feels like 4 days anyway. This was also why I have not been updating recently. I figured that I might as well get the revamp out of the way before posting up any new content. Perfect sense right?

Now with that being said and done, what do you think of the new layout (a.k.a. V2.0)? Feel free to leave any feedback in the comments below. Also, I had just found out while updating that apparently Blogger had now integrated the threaded comment feature, so now I should be able to reply to you all properly compared to the "archaic" method that I had been using before. I'm quite aware that in this aspect, I am "late to the party", but I guess that it is better late than never. Going back to the layout for a bit, it is not fully done as of now, so please be aware that there might be some tweaking here and there. Of course, that is for later when I have the time to work on it rather than 2am in the morning. None-the-less, something I thought that you should all know about or be aware of.

Other than the whole layout news, I had finally gotten off my lazy butt and created a Twitter account! My address is here:!/lavendernroses

Thank you for hearing me out!
