April Favorites

United States of Tara
Siberia Acoustic
Pom Pom Purin ring

Just a few things that have me smiling this month. I started watching United States of Tara this month and I love it! Few of the characters pissed me off (that's big) and it was funny and sad and great. It's a shame it was only given three seasons before it got the ax. My favorite alter was definitely T- although it sucked to see that she was used less and less as the seasons progressed. 
I've only just heard Siberia Acoustic today (bought the pre-order bundle which included a digital copy of the album) and I know it's definitely a favorite for years to come. Hopefully I get to go to her Chicago concert in June! I will be posting a review of the album by the end of the week.
I realize it's a little silly to put a plastic ring on my monthly favorites, but I absolutely love it! It always brings a smile to my face.

Recent Purchases: Mall Haul 2


I went to the mall over the weekend and picked up some things! I was only planning on getting a couple of items at the Disney Store but I ended up buying a couple of more items.

(Remember, you can always click the photos to view them larger!)

Sparkling Citrus Luscious Crush - Victoria's Secret

I normally don't like going to Victoria's Secret but I was dragged in so I went straight to their beauty section. I saw that they had some new(ish) products and I was just testing them and I saw this and it smelled so yummy! Not too strong!

Cutesters en Vogue Vinylmation - Disney Store

Of course, I had to go to the Disney Store and buy a vinylmation figure. Yet again, I bought an en Vogue one and I got the poodle! I was really bummed at first because I really want one of the girls! Just my luck to buy three vinylmations in total and get the only three non-girl figures, right? Well I wasn't too bummed after since I noticed that the pink poodle was insanely cute AND I didn't get a duplicate (never have *knocks on wood*)!

Goofy's Candy Co. Keychain - Disney Store

Had to get another GCC keychain and I got this one. Again, I was bummed because this literally was one of the two keychains from the collection I DIDN'T like (the rest I LOVE) but the more I look at it, the more I love it! It's so colorful and cute. I'm starting to notice that I really don't care what vinylmation (3 inch and Jr.) I get as long as it's not a duplicate. The only 3 inch vinylmation I don't like is of a villain from a movie I haven't seen.

Black & Gold headband - Forever 21

Always have to take a trip into Forever 21, right? Well I wasn't planning on purchasing anything, but I remembered I had a couple of dollars left in a gift card I got on Christmas so I decided to spend it and buy this cute and simple headband. I've been looking for a simple black headband and this one is perfect!

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese - Sears 

I know what you're thinking... makeup from Sears?! I know, I know! Weird, right? But Sears actually has a pretty great makeup section. All of the NYX makeup was 30 so I decided to buy this! I've been wanting the jumbo pencil in "Milk" but strangely they didn't have it. This one looked pretty (tried it today- it is!) so I bought it.

 They're Real! Mini Mascara - Ulta

My sister received a sample of this mascara (the same mini one) when she ordered from Sephora and she said it was great. We went to Ulta over the weekend and she bought the full-sized one while I purchased the mini one. I've tried it one and I have to say it is great! I'll be sure to make a review in the coming weeks.

Tony Moly Pete Bunny Gloss Bar - eBay

I bought this peach bunny gloss off eBay a couple of weeks ago and it arrived today! I didn't get it at the mall (obviously) but I'd like to show you that I got it much sooner than what it said in the email from them (I've ordered from the shop before and this is what happened before).

Novelty Hair Clip - eBay

I got this in the mail today as well and it is so funny and cute! It's SO BIG and a little clumsy but it works very well at keeping my bangs out of my face! I think this would look great when I have my hair in a bun and this is keeping this stray hairs in the back up!

That's all I bought this weekend. Definitely going back to the Disney Store in the coming weeks and buying more Vinylmations!

Today's Nails

VAN D'GO - Essie
Rhinestones - Delish Beads

The color is a little off because of the lighting. The color is more of a peachy pink! I only put a single rhinestone on the middle finger because I figured it would look less crappy if it fell off later than if I had them on all the fingers and they all fell off (resulting in all my nails looking bad instead of just one)

Friday Favorites: Cute Technology

Hangyodon x MIMOBOT - mimoco
Tokidoki Sandy x MIMOBOT - mimoco
Etude House Pink Prism Polish in "Sweet" - eBay
Pill tattoo tights - eBay

So I found an amazing flash drive website called mimoco and they have the cutest flash drives with pre-saved icons, backgrounds, and more that correspond to the flash drive you bought! I'm not sure if I'm willing to purchase a flash drive for over $20 but they are very cute. The Pink Prism line by Etude House is new and I'm in love with it! My favorite is the confetti glitter "Sweet" and the other glitter polishes in the line! I'll buy this one one of these days. The pill tights are freaking awesome and my favorite (surprisingly) out of all of the tattoo tights that seller has to offer. They would look awesome with a baggy t-shirt, shorts, and some sneakers. The only reason I didn't purchase them when I was buying a bunch of stuff last week was because I didn't know if the quality was good :\

Today's Photo

My Disney Store package arrived very quickly! I ordered the Cutesters En Vogue Vinylmation. I was hoping for one of the girls but the kitty was very cute! I'll be ordering more from this series when disneystore.com has free shipping for their Disney Parks items again 
At first I was bummed that I got the kitty then realized she reminded me a lot of Marie from The Aristocats!

Recent Purchases: Mall Haul!


Yesterday I went to the mall and spent a lot of money ... but it's okay! I bought so many cute things! Sadly, none of it was clothes like I intended to buy, but I don't care. We ate at Red Robin (my first time there) and I had the Boca Burger. It was delicious! The first store I went to was Sanrio and they had too many cute things I almost exploded! We went to some other stores and I ended up buying something from Forever 21 and the Disney Store. We got some bubble tea (my favorite is Almond) and we left! 
Here are the things I ended up buying:

My Melody Sunglasses Case for $12.50

Bento Mechanical Pencil (sadly they didn't have the phone plug with the hot dog I wanted D:) for $6.50

PomPomPurin change purse for $6.95

PomPomPurin ring for $5.95

Free Little Twin Stars tape! Sanrio always attaches a free item to your bag

For some strange reason a bunch of the stores at the mall I went to were under construction! It was so frustrating since it was all the really popular stores like Forever 21, H&M, and Victoria's Secret (and those were just the one's I noticed!). All three stores weren't completely closed and they had their stores open somehow. H&M had this really cramped store that was literally half children's and half women. They used to have a two floor store but they closed one floor, made the cramped one, and made a Men's H&M. I honestly don't know if it's temporary or if that's just how it's going to be. Forever 21 had a store open that sold their Heritage stuff (no pastels in sight). We figured we should check if they had anything and I found the flip flops pictured below with a handwritten price tag marked "4.80." I figured that was a great price for such cute flip flops and went to buy them. The cashier told me they were on sale and would be $2.17! Best steal ever!

Sanrio for Forever 21 Hangyodon Flip Flops for $2.17

So the last store we went to was the Disney Store and I wasn't really planning on buying anything then I almost flipped out when I saw they had the two items I least expected to be there- the Goofy's Candy Co. keychains and the Cutesters en Vogue Vinylmations! I could have sworn they were only available on the website and the parks! I immediately bought them and was happy with my pull from the Vinylmation Jr. series but I was a little meh with my Cutesters pull to be honest. I really want one of the girls! I will get one eventually.

Goofy's Candy Co. Vinylmation Jr. Keychain for $9.95

Cutesters en Vogue Vinylmation for $12.95

That's all from my trip to the mall! I actually received a free Badtz Maru poster from Sanrio but I didn't really want to include it since I haven't put it up on my wall yet.
