Bodyline Haul and Review

Hello everyone!

Halloween is fast approaching around the corner, and if you are as excited as I am, you would probably be scrambling around and trying to look (or make, for the crafty type that are out there) for a costume to get into the action! Frankly I love Halloween. Other than the copious amount of candy and the scare fest, Halloween is that time of the year where you get to be something else for the day. Whether it be your traditional vampire or something out of a fairy tale, there are definitely a ton of costumes and stuff out there that, on a regular day, will leave your head spinning.

After what seems to be some serious contemplation on what I wanted to dress up as, since there will be an upcoming Halloween event coming up that I will be attending. For quite some time now, I had been thinking of wearing Lolita, which I eventually decided on, since I admire the aesthetics.

Ok, so I wanted to wear Lolita for a day. Now what? Well, now it is time to do some serious research on the "components" and generally what makes up a Lolita. After getting the hands of the basics (such as maintaining a bell-shaped skirt or dress, quality of the pieces, and the importance of outfit coordination), it is time to hit up a Lolita store.

This is where Bodyline comes in. I've heard of this particular online store enough times to get the words "Body" and "Line" permanently stuck in my head. Basically from what I have seen from around the web, Bodyline is the ideal store for first time or starting Lolita, with prices more than reasonable while at the same time maintaining decent quality. I'm not going to lie, but I had seen the store back when they still had DHL and SEA as shipping options, and I was a bit iffy potentially ordering from them. I'm still a bit iffy ordering from them, due to the horror stories about ripped packages and what-not. But I figured, well, if the good reviews are still flowing in by the dozen and nothing majorly bad has happened, it must be okay! So chanced it I did.

Interesting Craft Finds: Let Them Make Cake!

Hello everyone!

^^ Please pardon the altered Marie Antoinette saying, but I felt that it would fit very well with the craft find in the blog post. Anyway, if you had been lurking around my blog during late August, I had posted up a (mostly) Dollar Store haul, and one of my finds was a 3D Origami Sweet Cakes set as shown:

Well fast forward to today and we finally get to see what is inside! I'm currently on a long break right now, and, while my homework amount is still tame and the sun is still shining brightly, I figured why not get the set opened up and bak-err fold some sweets! ^^;

Warning: The following content are picture/photo heavy. A fast connection (and a sweets tolerance) is strongly advised!

Changing a Headband into Something Beautiful

Hello everyone!

Sorry to disappoint, but this is just going to be another short post, at least until all my priorities are done or at least until I have some more free time. Anyway, just as a short "recap" from this post in case you have not seen it yet, but basically my two good friends had given me a beautiful ring and decorative headband. The unfortunate thing is that the beads on the headband had broken off during transit and therefore I had to "salvage" it.

Fortunately after what seems to be multiple attempts at getting the beads to stay on and failing horribly (;_; the horror...), I was able to successfully repair it and now it is in (relatively) good condition!

As you can clearly see, there are a couple of flat-back pearls on the headband. Why is that, you may ask? Well, it turns out that while I was in the stage of repairing it, I had ran out of the available beads in the bag. Apparently, it seemed that a couple had fallen out during transit, and while I could've left it empty, it does not seem right so I just ended up just filling up the rest of the section with pearls.

Now I am just going to conclude with a short "moral of the story" and a somewhat cheesy saying. If something is "broken" or flawed, not all hope is lost! With patience (and lots of it...), perseverance, and creativity, just about anything that exists under the sky can be fixed! And who knows? Something beautiful might come out in the end too!
