Pretty Necklace from Oasap and New Haircut Preview-ish :P

The weekend's almost over! D: But I just got my hair cut, and also received a package from Oasap so I'm a happy girl :P The package they sent me had a sweater and a necklace, and for today's post, I will be reviewing the Exquisite Elegant Necklace with Embroidered Design.

This necklace is a old dusty antique gold, which I really like! Gold looks way better on me than silver :P The detailing is also very intricate, lots of small details. The only question I had though, was that you can see there are five pieces of metal connected to make up this necklace. The first and second piece from the right aren't connected at the bottom, while the pieces from the left are. I think it might be intentional, because the pictures online are like that too. Idk, I just think it's a bit odd, so I wanted to tell you guys that haha.

It has a classic easy grasp hook closure, and it is very convenient to adjust lengths because the hook fits into all the little rings down the chain. Fit for those with big necks and also skinny ones! I usually wear it with 5-6 rings into the chain.

Heheh, and here is a picture of my new hairstyle! I think my hair stylist cut off around 5 inches. Super short now >.< Not used to having my head feel so light haha, but I really love it! Makes me feel young and fresh :P

Anyway, back to the necklace. I really love the shape and I think it would look great on low cut shirts as well as underneath collars! The detailing on it is very pretty too can definitely see it as one of my favorites! Very versatile piece also, because of the antique gold. However, it is $13.00 and I do find it a little bit overpriced. It's a gorgeous necklace, though but the lack of a connector between the top two pieces of metal on the right side is a bit strange hahaha. Therefore, I give this necklace a:
If you are interested in this necklace, you can find it here, and please go ahead and check out the other beautiful jewelry products that Oasap has to offer! Free Worldwide shipping, what's more to ask? :P

That's it for today's post, sweeties, talk to you next time!

Spring Pastel Leopard~

Hi my sweetie pies! Hope you're all having a wonderful Saturday! I definitely am, because I went out last night with my girlfriends and had a blast! So today, I want to show you guys this manicure I had on for the past week:

Yay leopard print nails! :D And since it's spring, I felt like using some of my pastels:
China Glaze Dance Baby, F21 Nameless Shimmery Black, Sinful Colors Cinderella
 I first put on 3 coats of Cinderella to achieve an opaque baby blue, and two coats of Dance Baby, although it was already pretty opaque at one. Then I just made random shaped dots on my nails, and omg. It looked horrible looool.

Eeeks! Looks like some kind of pastel sea monster lol
 But after I went around the dots with the shimmery black, it actually started to look like leopard prints! YAY :D

And lastly, here is a picture with flash to show you the beautiful pink/orange specks in Cinderella! There's a reason it's my FAAAVORITE blue, you know (;

Heheheh, that's it for this short post! I'm off to get a haircut, keeping my fingers crossed that it will turn out well!
Love you guys,

Fashion Friday: Laid Back Casual Look Featuring Pink Knit Hat From Miako~

Happy Friday, my sweet little pumpkins! I have another outfit post to share with you guys, and the key item in this outfit, the pink knitted hat is sponsored by the lovely Miako store, which I talked about a few posts back. California weather is bipolar! SO HOT during the day, and super cold in the mornings and at night! Which is why I chose this cute knit hat~

I love how toned down this pink is! It's a muted mauve/peach undertoned pink, so it's very wearable and easy to match!

The knitting is done very loosely, giving it a very lightweight and slouchy feel. Love it! And also, the end of the hat is a very small line, unlike other hats out there that have thick bands at the end. I don't like those! They make my hair super flat =3=

And here is a close up of the little ball of yarn at the top of the hat. One of my favorite things about this hat! I have to apologize a bit though, my camera can't really capture the real color of this hat in indoor lighting, so the most color accurate pictures are the ones where I'm outside!

Shirt from Venice Beach California
Parachute Pants from a local store in China
Green Leopard Bandeau from Tilly's
Leopard Ring and Chain Bracelet: Forever 21
All in all, I would give this adorable hat a:
It fits my huge head very well, and those with smaller heads can use bobby pins to secure if it feels loose! Love the color and knitting on it, and most of all, the ball of yarn! Such an adorable piece, I can definitely see myself wearing this everyday in the winter!

If you guys would like to check out more awesome products at an inexpensive price, here's Miako!

That's it for today's post~ Thank you guys for reading, and I'll talk to you guys again very soon! :D


All opinions and ideas are 100% truthful and my own. I'm not paid to provide false reviews to my beloved readers!

Quick Nail Post: China Glaze Hunger Games Riveting and Electrified Gradient

Hello my sweethearts~ I'm just going to take a quick break from some make-up homework and write up a quick nail of the week post for you guys. During my stay at Washington, I had these nails on:

The below pic is taken from my phone, so the color is a bit off. Just wanted to show you guys a fuller picture of what this mani looks like (:

It's a sweet and simple glitter gradient with two China Glaze colors I got from their Hunger Games collection last year: Riveting and Electrified. Riveting is a gorgeous deep orange filled with sparkling gold bits that shimmer like crazy! I only used one coat of Riveting because it's such an opaque polish already! As you can probably tell from the below pics:

1 coat, I swear! Look at the gorgeous shimmer :D
 And here is a blurry pic with flash to show you how much shimmer is in here! You can also tell from the bottle that this polish sparkles like CRAZY under direct light! So gorgeous :3

I've gotten so many compliments on my nails already, but honestly it's the polish. Glittery and gorgeous, not to mention very smooth and easy to apply AND LASTS SUPER LONG! I'll definitely be doing more glitter gradients because they're so simple but eye-catching! And it makes people think I spent lots of time on my nails xD

Okay, that's it for the quick post~ I'm about to continue doing my homework now! Hump day tomorrow, hang in there, sweethearts :P


Cute Affordable Online Shop: Miako~

As you all know, I'm a sucker for fashion. Especially inexpensive and pretty clothes! But sometimes, these stores don't have much selection to develop your style with. This is when I stumbled upon Miako! Miako is a
"A cute online shop, by an asian-lover owner, who wishes to help anyone to get anything they want from Asian countries. 
We know that in places like Japan or Korea, there are a lot of interesting things difficult to get in other countries. So here, at Miako's you can get anything you want at the lowest price!"

Their layout is adorable, pink, polka dots, and cute little animals! :D Also, very easy to navigate. And, not to mention, they have free shipping! Some stores only provide free shipping to orders $50+, but Miako offers completely free shipping, how convenient~

Miako has a huge selection of clothing including this leopard shirt which caught my eye:
For only $13!!!! No wonder it's all sold out!
They also have really cute dresses too! *o*
Only $20!
Omg, you do not know how many times I've tried to use Taobao and fail because of the shipping and all the other complications, now finally a cute asian clothing store~ I'll definitely be shopping here more often, and if you guys have any questions or concerns, feel free to email them, they're SUPER FRIENDLY! Which makes me love them even more :P 

Alright sweethearts, go ahead and check them out, I'll see you guys in my next post :3

Casual With a Touch of Edge~ Featuring Michael Kors Cowlneck Shirt :3

Hi everyone! :D I'm in a really good mood today because 1) I volunteered 2) I got my paycheck 3) I practiced piano so I feel productive 4) I talked to 哥哥 and 5) I have a post to publish today! WHEEEE.
Anyway, hyperness aside, I want to share this outfit with you guys. I like it because it has contrasting colors, lace, pleather, and studs! YUMMM :3

Pleather pants with knitted panels inside the legs. I've had these for a bit now, and they're starting to stretch out at the waist so I HAVE to wear a belt now ): But oh well, I still like them! Makes me feel badass :D And I have to apologize because I cut off all the tags on these because they were bothering me, so I can't tell you what brand/where they're from D: SORRY!

I really love the cowl neck style of this shirt because it adds lots of dimension and depth to your look without having to layer tons of stuff over it. And plus, this shirt has triangular and circular studs on the shoulders! :D Loooove it :3 It's also quite a thin material so you can wear it all year round!

Loool, and I wore blue earrings because I wanted to match it with the blue cami I had underneath xD

Top - Michael Kors (Size M if anyone is wondering. A bit loose and baggy on me still.)
Jewelery - Wet Seal (Bracelets are from this haul)
Leopard Ring - F21
Fringe Boots - F21

And one last camwhore pic before I go, just cuz I really like my hair today :P

Heheheh, okay, that's the end of today's post! Hope you guys are having a great week so far! I'm still enjoying my Spring Break~~~
Love you all,
