Music memeCollapse )

Day 25 - A song that makes you laugh

"Chicken Song" Jed305

This needs no words.

And with that, I leave you. UNTIL NEXT TIME.

I feel like I've been neglecting this thing! I'll try to make a "real" update soon with pictures from the past week or so, as well as another update (more like a shameless dump) of the music meme that I am so far behind on. I've just been so busy trying to accept that 1. School is back in session and 2. My best friend and my boyfriend are now hours away D: Boooo. I've been so spoiled by their constant company this summer. I've been trying to keep very busy so that I don't realize this loss even more ;P

For now, I would like to show off these lovely earrings that I bought from PersephonePlus at Etsy.com! I mentioned them in a previous post and I recently uncovered some photos I took of them when I first got them, so here they are, along with my thoughts.

"Rather Fabulous Victorian Bat Girl Earrings" from PersephonePlus

So basically, I. LOVE. THESE. This has probably been one of the most satisfying purchases I've made in a while. PersephonePlus' earrings are handmade to order, and they are so wonderfully unique. I'm a total sucker for bats (no pun intended?).. my first car was half-way customized to become a Batmobile until I had to give up the project because she died (briefly) :( Now she is my dad's primary transit car. So anyway, I was super excited when I saw these! The artwork is absolutely gorgeous and the bat charms add a really adorable little twist. This particular pair costs $22 (I think it ended up being around $24 with shipping), which I find to be an extremely reasonable price, especially for a nice handmade item. They are also very good quality, and include clear backings. There are not many cons that I can think of.. it should be noted that they are not completely waterproof because of the paper art used, but I don't know why you would be wearing these pretties in water anyway >< I suppose that if you need to clean them, you should not to submerge them in any cleaner or water, but only spot clean carefully. They are also a little on the heavy side, as you can see from the picture. The weight does not bother me personally, but it is something to be aware of (I know my mom says she can't wear heavy earrings). I would definitely recommend PersephonePlus jewelry if you like bold romantic and steampunk themed pieces (she also makes necklaces). Plus, the seller/creator is a real sweetheart! I experienced a very friendly transaction and the shipping was notably quick and very reasonably priced. Overall, 10/10.. I look forward to purchasing again from PersephonePlus ^_^

Here are some more close up pictures that I took of my earrings, along with some other examples of PersephonePlus products, AKA stuff that I'm lusting over hardcore ;)..

Cut for pictures!Collapse )

Alright, that's about it for now. Hope you all have been well!

Fear not, for you can see these pictures and more in all of their 480x640 glory under the cut. I'm just being considerate or something of your Friends page. Can you guys see these pictures? I hope so.. Flickr no longer volunteers a direct link, so I had to ninja the photo location the old fashioned way.. so let's hope that worked. Or, for the sake of these pictures, let's hope it didn't.

Moving on.. Cat, David, Will, and I went to Saigon Palace last night for a suave dinner date. It was ridiculously delicious as always.. I still have half of my Phở Chay calling my name from the fridge. It's always so much food! Anyway, we had a royally horrible time as always, complete with a second viewing of R.L. Stine's The Ghost Next Door.. Well, Second for SOME of us. Ahem. BTW, dinner the other night with D. and the family was amazing as expected. The entire group together is always a hoot and a half. I have no pictures of that event.. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT I DO HAVE PICTURES OF?


We need to do this more.. plus, we may have another Albemarle trip coming up!

Also, I got my earrings from Persephone Plus in the mail the other day and they are SO amazing. I'm wearing them in these pictures, but you can't see them very well. I'm a huge fan of handmade things.. I don't know how much time I've wasted window shopping on Etsy lately. I need to take better pictures of these.. I'll probably just end up making a post of lovely handmade stuff that I've acquired recently.

That's all. I'm at a loss.. have some meme!

Catching up with the music memeCollapse )

Day 08 - A song that you know all the words to

"Lucky" Lucky Twice

Idk.. first one to come to mind. I'm not even sure why I know all the words to this song. I don't listen to many sing~along songs anymore.. either because they're not singable or they're in a language that I'm not even going to insult by messing with. Watch Yuna dance sexy or watch people get shot. Win/win fan-made amv.

This is a requested make up look for Utau Hoshina from Shugo Chara!. I do not have the camera that I usually film with, so I made a picture tutorial since it is fairly simple.

Cut for large imageCollapse )

On with the rest of the post! I'm very excited about tonight's dinner date.. I miss my friends, and I miss Mr. D; he's one of the only cool teachers we all had as youngsters. This night should be pretty EPIC. I'll be happy to be going out again. I've been trying to dress up and go out more since I started feeling better. Last night, Will and I went on an evening stroll around the lake in my neighborhood which was very nice. After that, we went to Cold Stone Creamery for ice cream and I made the most magical concoction: Strawberry ice cream with Oreos and chocolate chips! You should try it ^_^

That's all for right now, this post is already loaded. Here's day 5 of the meme..

Day 05 - A song that reminds you of someone

"Du Hast" Rammstein

In honor of our date tonight.. This song reminds me of the family. THAT IS ALL.

I finally dyed my hair this evening; it had been about 3-4 months since my last colouring. It's finally getting long(!!) Anyway, here's the colour I used..

Revlon Colorsilk in 20 Brown Black
Revlon Colorsilk ReviewCollapse )

That's pretty much it, nothing special. I'm glad to get back to my roots though. My hair was getting pretty bad.. check out this brassy frizz wad..


Haha, that's all. Here's more of the music meme..

Music Meme HousekeepingCollapse )

Day 04 - A song that makes you sad

"Aerith's Theme" Uematsu Nobuo

I mean, old news is old.. but just in case, I won't tell you any background on this song aside from the fact that it's from Final Fantasy VII. It's quite pretty though.. makes me wish I could play piano. I dunno.. I get more emotionally involved with fictional characters than I do with real humans. Such is life.

Bon Odori 2010 with my strawberry Ramune

Well, hello there. I have finally returned to this place after an epically long hiatus. I tried to make a Blogspot account in conjunction with my YouTube channel, but it was too lonely to even begin customizing and I already keep up with a few friends and communities here. So, of course, I fled back into Livejournal's loving arms once more under a new name for a fresh start.
I intend to keep this journal updated (for real this time) with my every day life and projects, as well as extra info to supplement tutorials on my channel and reviews on products and services that you lovelies may find useful. I also really need motivation to stop dressing like a lazy college kid, so maybe if I tell you guys that I'll post looks, I'll actually do it.. not to mention the PIX OR GTFO rule of all blog posts ever /points to obnoxious head shot in this post.
I actually stopped blogging at my last journal because I got majorly creeped on by someone I knew (read: looked over my shoulder to grab the URL and lurk my shit) and it was just.. too ridiculous. That said, I'll have any really personal posts Friends Only locked. I anticipate this being a 99% public blog, but do add me! I'd like to make more friends on here. If you don't have an LJ, feel free to interact via the anon feature in the comments. I know I am just asking for it by allowing such a thing, but you know.

Enough about that, what's new here? What have I missed? Leave me your favourite journals/communities to read/look at! I need some good material on my friends page.

Since it's the start of the month, I'm going to begin this music meme that I stole from Cat..

Day 01 - Your favorite song

This is my favourite song at the moment; I've been into Vocaloids a lot lately. As with most Vocaloid songs, I'm more impressed with the mechanics than anything else. Luka is the most human sounding of her kind in my opinion, or at least, she's MY favourite. If you're already lost, this is not a girl, it's a program. I love everything about this song though, especially the SIQ BREAKDOWN near the end. It is my goal to cover this song via violin and make an accompanying music video with my own art.

Rules for this memeCollapse )

Here's to the first of many posts!
