Tutorial: Glitter Gradient Nails


Hello everyone! I'm back with a new SUPERRRR easy nail tutorial which is great for summer! I used my BornPrettyStore glitter polish which I received a few days ago :-) It's actually the easiest way to do your nails. It just takes two to three swipes of the glitter polish and you're done! But there are some basic things you need to remember when doing this type of nail art. 

FIRST: You need to apply small layers at a time. You will not want to have a chunky mess on your nails so be patient and apply the polish little by little. 
SECOND: You should apply it just at the ends. Covering 3/4s of the nails look quite nice IMO. And concentrate more on the ends.
THIRD: This is quite hard and I don't usually follow this but let the layer dry before applying the next one. But if you're impatient like me, you can always cheat and not do this. Hahaha!
FOURTH: Remember to put top coat so that the chunky glitters won't fall out. -____- Sometimes, these chunky glitters will just escape and make their way on to your face or somewhere. Hahaha.





And that's it. A super easy way for fun and fabulous way to decorate your nails for the summer! If you don't have any glitter polish, I recommend this one by the BornPrettyStore and I also like the one by OPI which is in the shade Rainbow Connection. Oh and for people living in the Philippines, Bobbie's sunburst looks amazing too! :-D They kind of look like Gel nails with glitter tips! I love this technique. Super easy ~ No sweat at all even for me and my shaky hands! HAHA!

Review: Firmoo Sunglasses


Hello everyone! As promised, I'm now typing a review for my new Firmoo sunglasses! :-) I've been looking for a pair of pretty brown sunglasses for a really long time and I specifically wanted ones with round lenses. Sunglasses here are mostly aviators and wayfarers so no deal, I have wayfarers but I'd love to try out the round ones too! Sunglasses aren't so Mori but I have seen some Mori girls wearing round glasses hence the new addiction to round lenses. 

This pair is available in black and chocolate brown. The black one was also cute but I loved the brown one more. Maybe I'll get the black one next time. :-D The frame was gold/brass-ish looking piece of sturdy metal, so no complaints here. It definitely looked and felt sturdy but they were still lightweight. I have sensitive eyes so I like the fact that these have wrap around UV protection.

The shipping was really fast too, It took less than a month to reach me. Most of the packages that I receive aren't this fast. :-O So I was amazed. 

See how pretty they look! :-D My nails look cute too ne? I'll post about them too! 




Tried doing hipster poses and failed miserably! HAHAHAHA!






It came in this plastic case which I don't quite like ; u ; Hahaha. I think it looks not that nice. A leather case would look 10x better IMO. But the gold embossed logo looks really great but then again, purple and gold isn't quite my style :'< Hahahaha! BUT one thing I liked the most is that these glasses came with extra screws and whatnots, for instances wherein you lost one screw or something. It also came with a little screwdriver which was so cute. :-D





I recommend Firmoo's sunglasses. They're really worth the money! :-)

Outfit: An overall flair


Hello everyone! As you all know, I'm having my OJT now so I'm pretty much in my intern uniform all the time, except for today! Today is my restday so I can now wear pretty clothes! I bought a denim overall dress last week in a thrift shop and I've been dying to wear it ever since. I missed mixing and matching my mori pieces!

Well anyway, I wore my denim overall dress with my white 3/4s shirt with some floral detail. You can't really notice the green and brown flowers though. I also found my lost Dr. Martens sandals! Hahaha. I was soooo happy to finally see them again. I last saw them about a year ago. I matched them with my green socks. And because it's summer, I wore my round sunglasses to complete the look. Many people were asking where I got these, they're from Firmoo! They have these round sunglasses in black too! For a grungey approach, black is definitely better but for Mori-ish styles, these chocolate colored ones are PERFECT! :-) I will review these on my next post! I just love these sunglasses!

Haul: Is this what my skin Kraves?


My title is meant to be spelled that way. So no Mr./Ms. smartypants has the right to comment about how I spelled crave wrong! :p Well anyway, I've been using Krave Minerale skincare products for a month now and I will review the items soon but for now, I will show you what I got. But before we start, heres a quick introduction about Krave~

Being a person with really sensitive skin, I wanted to try their products out and crossed my fingers and hoped they'd work on my acne prone sensitive skin. The people at  Krave Minerale showed me a skincare regime for my skin type and I've been using it ever since I got them. Here are the stuff I got: 





I got the Cupine Aloepa facial wash, Anti-zit Splash, Panacea Olio Nutriente, Moisture Souffle, and the Triple P fruit masque. I personally have my favorites between these products but I will review them individually soon so wait for that.

Review: Koji Eyetalk Double Eyelid Tape Slim


I've been a huge fan of eyelid tape last year but I kind of forgot about it but then when I went to Daiso to try out their eyelid tape, my forgotten love for the item was revived but their eyelid tape was kind of wide for my eyes so I looked for slimmer eyelid tapes. I got one from ArtieStyle, it's the Koji Eyetalk Double Eyelid tape in Slim; It has a wide version too but I don't like wide eyelid tapes so I didn't choose it.

Each pack came with 30 pairs of eyelid tapes and it also included the stick thing, UNTIL NOW I STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT TO CALL THIS STICK which reminds me of those dental flosses on sticks. HAHA! Well anyway, here's what it looks like:


What I really loved about this eyelid tape was the fact that it had these things that you tear off on the sides which help you put them on without actually touching the actual sticky part of the tape! :-D What a neat idea. 


And I must say that this will have to be the less obvious eyelid tape that I used. Plus two thumbs up for the stickiness. I found it really easy to apply and it did not budge throughout the day considering my super oily skin. Hahaha. It seriously amazed me. It makes my eyes look wayyy bigger too! I really recommend this. The flaps at the ends makes the product really special and easy to use, especially for clumsy people like me. 




It's thin, transparent and really easy to use. And the website also states that this tape is sweat and water proof. OH BTW, It's easy to remove too! So, definitely two thumbs up! 

One pack is worth $5.99 but it's worth it. I got mine here:

Dried flowers and glitters!


Hello everyone! I've been so busy with my On the Job training that I have zero time for blogging but since I got home a wee bit early, I'll just sneak in a little post before I go to bed. Oh and BTW, I got my new school uniform which is required for my OJT. I will show you my uniform soon! :-) Hahaha. 

Well anyway, I received some pretty neat stuff from the BornPrettyStore! Which I plan to use soon as I have the time. Being a lover of flowers and dried stuff (This includes dried fish! YUMMM), I got pretty dried flowers to put on my nails. And I also got a glitter polish, I chose this one because it looked somewhat like those OPI polishes that have the chunky glitter which looks so goooood! 

These dried flowers come in a pack of 12 :-D You get 12 unique designs but I have 2 favorites! ~





Here are my two favorites! Turquoise and the green! :-) I still have to look at some inspirations on how to do nail art using these. I tried using the yellow one and I failed miserably! HAHAHA! I can't even dare show you what I did!





Here is the glitter polish I got! :-) Just right for the summer time. Will definitely use this soon! I bet this would look great with a black base! You can check this out here: http://www.bornprettystore.com/gold-color-glitter-nail-polish-nail-p-1313.html




I hope I have the time to do some dried flower nail art soon even though I have short nails. I saw these and I hope I can try these out! ~ Images are not mine btw. I just found them on google! Super pretty and I know I can't do them as good as these ones! HAHA!

Outfit: My safe spot


It's been a long time since I posted an outfit post because this summer, I'm either in jeans and shirts or my school uniform so I can't wear skirts as much as I want. Schools and their crappy dress codes. Hate. The summer weather is not scorching when you wake up at about 6am-ish. These photos were taken 630am I think. I love the early morning weather so much. Nice chill weather good for strolling around the city. :-) I wish that kind of weather would last all day. 

Anyway, I wore a flowy white top with a crochet cardigan and a denim skirt! :-) I love wearing white with denim. It gives such a breezy vibe. IDK. I like how they look together. Even white shirts or white button downs with denim jeans look nice together. 

ANYONE WANT TO SEE ME IN MY UNIFORM? Comment down below! :-) Hahaha! I promise to blog a lot soon. School is being such a pain in the ass and I have zero time for anything but school. *Sigh* I miss blogging and taking photos!






Hype this on lookbook here.

Review: GEO LAVENDER GREEN WFL-A53

Hello! I'm back with a review. It's been so long since I last wrote a review, I have so much stuff so review. I need to rush. Well anyway, I have a bit of free time on my hands now because I'm done with my OJT interview and on the first interview, I got the job. Yaaay. Well, anyway, enough about me. On to the lenses!

Reading so much negative stuff about a certain brand of circle lenses made me think carefully about the brands of contact lenses I use. GEO is the most famous brand of circle lenses I know and I trust them, mainly because of their authenticity checker. They're the first brand I tried and I love their lenses. I got my new lenses from Geocolouredlenses. They sell GEO lenses only. They offer FREE standard international shipping on all orders 1-5 pairs and FREE express international shipping on all orders 6 pairs and above. My package arrived in perfect condition. I chose green lenses this time. I'm usually in brown ones and I think these are my first green lenses! I have pink, blue and gray ones too! But I'm never caught in green lenses. Soooo... This was a first! But I think there will be a second pair, I quite like the green on me. 


The stock image of the GEO Lavender Green:


Power Range: 0.00 (Available in Plano only)
Diameter: 15.0mm
Base Curve Radius: 8.60mm
Water Content: 38~42%
1 year disposable

I quite like the lens case because it's green. (Green is my favorite color BTW) Hahaha :-D Even though it's plain, I still love it because it's green. Hahaha. Okaaay.





I personally love the pattern on this. It looks like pretty art! :-D





Look! It blends in so well, Even though I have dark brown eyes. Hands down, I think this design is one of the prettiest ones I've seen. I can't wait to use these lenses with my lashes! The green shows up on my eyes but it's not super vivid that it scares people! ~








Design: /5 -- I love the design so much! And I think I'll try more green lenses because of these! :-D
Enlargement: /5 -- They make my eyes look dolly but the limbal ring isn't thick so it's quite nice and natural. Less alien-ish than other lenses with super thick limbal rings :-D
Comfort: /5 -- Quite comfortable and they're thin too! 
TOTAL: /5 -- Love them and I can't wait to use them with eyemakeup! 


You can check out these lenses here: http://www.geocolouredlenses.com/products/GEO-LAVENDER-WFL%252dA53.html And be sure to check out Geocolouredlenses for more GEO lenses!

BTW, you can use the code "FORESTDOLL10" to get 10% off on your purchases!

Inspiration: Get loose!


Yes I am obsessed with boyfriend jeans recently. Maybe it's the weather but I'm wearing jeans more often now. After I wore my first Mori Girl with jeans outfit, I'm definitely wanting some more coords involving jeans. They definitely make my outfits wearable and comfortable. See? Nothing can go wrong. 

Well anyway, I was on tumblr a couple days ago and I looked for summer/spring Mori Girl x Boyfriend Jeans inspirations that I can get ideas from. I found all these outfits really cute and adorable for the hot summer weather we have now. From something really light and airy to something layered and busy, it suits everything! AND IT'S ALWAYS CUTE IF YOU FOLD THEM TOO!

I will leave you with these awesome photos because I need to wake up early because it's my first day of summer class tomorrow. :-D I hope nothing will go wrong. I will go back to posting reviews, hauls and outfit posts soon! AND A CIRCLE LENS GIVEAWAY WILL BE POSTED IN A FEW DAYS TOO! :-)
