♥ Food, Cosplay, Giveaways, and ALL that good stuff! ♥ Loaded with pics!

My recent outfits! Seriously trying to document what I wear so I can see how my style evolves. XD
Ended up switching outfit. Mom says I need to be more colorful ;x

Now about my past few weeks!

I have been eating a lot but that's only when I go out with friends and family (so almost every day..)! ( ´∀`)so much food, I will just let the pictures do the talking for me!
Recent non-caffeinated (YES) beverage! I am weak when it comes to caffeine, so I can never drink ANYTHING with caffeine in it starting 4pm. If I do, I will be hyper for hours. Mixed fruit tapioca milk drink!

This is from DineLA! Basically some nice restaurants will collaborate with this event and have a set menu for registered guests. Went back to Bazaar with Mio, John (photographer), Gilbert (photographer), Nicky (my hubby), and another friend. We got to choose one appetizer, three dishes, and a dessert for $44 (excluding gratuity). Because the portions are tapa style, we all just ordered different things and tried a bit of everything. Portions look small, but really, you get SUPER full from them! And so sorry, the pictures are in backwards order, so dessert is first!

My grandmother's birthday is in January, few days after Chinese New Year. Lots of relatives met up to celebrate. And it IS my grandmama after you can only imagine her birthday cake..s:
All my cousins instantly started instagram-ing this. Haha  O(≧∇≦)O

Now for random hang-outs! Went to eat with a few friends and decided to take pics. Sadly, the seats were deep violet velvet, so it looks black on my phone! m(_ _)m ゴメンナサイ

With Stef and Stae!
Stae, Kai, and Anna!

During one of the days, I had to go with Koto to buy some fabrics for cosplay (which cosplay?!) at Fashion District. Went to Koto's and what do I get? Her two dogs hyperactively (?) attacking me. In the end, they look like this:
The white fluff is Shia, and the little chocolate one is Pocky! ♥

So finally when Koto was ready, we went to buy fabric with Erri! Some pics of me having Mikuri.. everywhere!


And this is what I will be cosplaying as:

Megumi from the anime Shiki! :) Got all my fabric, just gotta' sew everything!

Did I mention my giveaway yet?


Yes that is Koto and I cosplaying from Arakawa Under the Bridge! -(*0*)- Koto is the cutest P-ko EVER!

Also, my recent hauls! (~ *0*)~

What is this?


 That's right, MY FIRST PAIR OF JEFFREY CAMPBELL SHOES! キタ━━━(゜∀゜)━━━!!!!! These are my DREAM wedges, Jeffrey Campbell Mariel!



 So let me do a short review! These wedges are in black suede! Though they have many different colors/materials available, I felt this was the most classic go-to material/color a girl can have! It was a challenge deciding between leather and suede, but fortunately, they were out of leather in my size ( ̄□ ̄;) so I had no choice but to choose suede ;x (at least I got to the decision fast!). It fits true to size, and is extremely comfortable! I cannot walk in high heels, and these wedges are 5" high ☆⌒(>。≪)イタイ (including the platform)!! ( ゚ Д゚) HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT I CAN WALK IN THESE?! I can walk perfectly fine, I am just more elevated. -feels supermodel status- ( ̄ー ̄)

Now, on Jeffrey Campbell in general..
I LOVE the price ($120 for Mariel). For most high end heels (D&G, Theysken, etc.), you can expect to pay $250+ for a pair of shoes (T▽T). Jeffrey Campbell is much more affordable for the common gal, and there are a lot of different styles of shoes available for each girl! The boxes each shoe is contained in is different almost every time (I think), and the designs on the boxes are SOOO cute! ♥ The packaging inside, as you saw, is REALLY nice. My wedges had tissue paper stuffing on the sole to keep the shape of the wedges, as well as a Styrofoam-like material to shape it. Each wedge had it's own mesh bag (EACH ONE HAS ONE!) to prevent any damage from the other shoe. Such quality! ~(*0* ~)

Now, for some of you, you're probably thinking,"It's suede. It's going to get dirty. YOU ARE SCREWED." At those of you who are thinking that, I laugh at you. I ALREADY FOUND A SOLUTION!

Kiwi Suede Protector! In this small bottle is enough liquid to spray on all your shoes (ok, maybe just most of them) and make them waterproof AND stainproof! AMAZING? AMAZING!

SPRAY ALL THE SHOES! ( ^)/占~~~~~

So what else did I get?

Made a splurge on! Spend over $25+ and get free shipping, and spend $30+, get $5 off! Total after discount, $25.01. JUST MADE IT FOR FREE SHIPPING! -insert winning face- ( ̄ー ̄)
Purchased Biore eye cream because when I stay up late, my eyes are like (9_9). Also got Neutrogena 2-in-1 Fight and Fade Toner. It's really good for getting rid of any pimples growing or already present.. AND IT FADES SCARS! Third, got an eco-friendly kabuki traveling brush. And lastly, NO PAIN SCRUNCHIES!

So far, this is doing great for me. I sometimes break out around my hairline, and so after I wash my face, I just use a cottonball dabbed with the toner, and brush around affected area. I did notice my breakouts going down, and some scars I had when I was going through puberty are fading! I recommend this for normal/combination skin! ☆彡

One of my really good friends Nicky (I call her "hubby") went to China a few weeks ago (in December!). She brought me back two lovely gifts!

 Customized ring! It's a customized ring with the number 8 (a lucky number, for those of you who are Chinese! I say it's an infinity sign as well though! ∞) and a black loose blouse! Really light and comfy! ♥

 This is a puppet. I have NEVER owned a puppet before! Gilbert (photographer) got this cute San-X Sentimental Circus puppet for me. Played with it on the way home after Bazaar! Note the cute hat with the word "Master" on it? IT'S GOSHUJINSAMA! XD

 Finally! A pin. LOL! XD This pin was purchased at Macy*s for $2 to donate to the American Heart Association. Along with this donation, you will receive a 20% discount with purchases for the next 3(?) days (not too sure how many days, they told me until Sunday).

Sorry for not posting as much as I did before. I know it used to be every week (almost), but now I actually see some daylight ;x. Please do stay tuned for more posts though!

Also, don't forget to join my giveaway on Facebook for your chance to win lots of cute goodies! ♥ Gambatte!
