Hime Creations Series, Prisila Half-wig, and Misc + Claires Haul

Hello everyone!

Time sure flies when you are having fun, especially when it is during the month of August and that the school term is quickly advancing. In some cases, it might've even arrived for a couple of you judging from a couple of posts that I had seen so far. ^^; Like I had previously mentioned, I want to savour what precious moments I have and get more to crafting in particular, since I have a feeling that I will not be able to do as much during the school year.

I had already created a couple of jewelery pieces, which so far consists of a choker and a couple of rings. Main inspirations were from Himena's Princess Melody line (in particular her early release chokers, but with a touch of lace) and PinkHime's famous rose or "crosage" ring. 

On the side, I had (finally) ordered a half-wig off of Moery and it had arrived a couple of weeks ago! The half-wig that I had ordered is the famous J-807 in the colour TBK to match with my black hair, since I honestly don't feel like dying it and what-not. I had only gotten the half-wig, since I think that 1) it is a great hair piece to start off with and 2) it will take me a while to get used to the weight on the back of my head.
Regarding Prisila itself, the half-wig came wrapped up nicely in a small bag. A "wig-net" keeps the half-wig secure in the packaging and preventing it from being tangled. Quality-wise,  it feels really nice and as you can see from the pictures below, it blends in nicely with my own hair. Now I'm not really an expert on hair pieces, so I will just leave it at that, but I will say that it is definitely worth the $60 something dollars that I had forked over.

Now if only I can find a way to make the bump bigger so hair accessories can sit perfectly without it looking all awkward...

Now for the hauls! For the miscellaneous one, I had helped place an order at Cool Pencil Case for my sister's back to school shopping, and had ordered a couple of items myself. If you are a huge fan of cute mechanical pencils like I am, you would quickly notice that it can be extremely hard to find cute yet cheap stationary outside of a Chinatown, and even then it would still be on the pricey side. Though I think that most of the items on the site err on the pricey side of things as well, I find a couple of their mechanical pencils to be quite reasonable. Shipping is quite pricey however for anyone that lives outside of the states.   

For the Claires haul, after finding a dotted bow headband in the same colour (and material!) as one of my Yumetenbo dresses and after a little bit of persuasion from family, I caved in and bought the item. Naturally since all hair accessories are part of the "buy one get one 50% off" sale, I bought a black rose clip along with it when none of the other hair accessories had caught my eye. I am very low on black hair accessories as it is, so it all worked out in the end. In addition to the headband and the rose clip, I had bought a tiara that was on sale at the time. I had missed the time when tiaras were used predominantly in Himegyaru fashion, so hopefully I will be able to use it in future outfits once I get fully into Himegyaru. 

Now last but not least, I had splurged on a beautiful pair of floral and lace oxfords. Up until now, I did not have a pair of decent close-toed shoes with the exception of my extremely ancient pair of runners that I had since my junior high school days. Now I finally have something that is function yet fashionable! ^o^

Another Lifestyle Post: Movies, Outings, and Dinner

Hello everyone!

Once again, it has been a while since I had made my latest post, but lately I have been feeling a bit on the lazy side when it comes to posting. There will be no crafts or deco this time around, as it is strictly a lifestyle post. 

Back in July during the afternoon, my friend and I went to watch Pacific Rim during a Tuesday special. Unfortunately, there were a couple of complications when I got to the theater: 1) the movie we were planning on watching doesn't actually start until a later time, 2) the movie that was available at the time was the 3D version of the movie we were planning on watching, and 3) my friend was not there yet due to a prior phone call. At first we decided to switch the movie to Despicable Me 2, but thanks to the 1) numerous kids lining up and 2) the next showtime being roughly the same as the one with Pacific Rim, we ended up settling for watching Pacific Rim instead. With that being decided, we went to go kill some time, mainly in the forms of shopping and more shopping!
