Basic Accessories Essentials

1) - A hat of some kind. Always good to keep your head warm, or to add that something extra to a outfit.

2) - A scarf. Scarfs are good for winter, but also amazing for changing an outfit.

3) - Skinny belt. They to can change an outfit, but they can also give you a waist if your wearing something that's baggy.

4) - Versatile bag. One that is big enough to carry all the things you need but can be used with almost all outfits.

5) - Necklaces. So you don't end up with a lot of them, buy ones that are versatile.

6) - Rings.  So your fingers don't look bare :) They can jazz up a outfit.

7) - Headbands. To get the hair out of your face if you're going to be busy, or to simply add a little something to your outfit.

8) - Waist belt. Again like the skinny belt they give you a waist, but they can also jazz up an outfit, black or brown is the most versatile.

9) - Earrings. Always good, you can have some to go with everything.

10) - Umbrella. Because you never know when it might rain.

I wrote this post a long time ago but i never posted it.
Since my internet is been slow today i'll have to post this instead of something else.
I think i will do a favourites post next.

Outfit Of The Day + Shopping

 Green harem pants woooh :)
They were originally bought for a friend but she didn't like how green they were, so i figured I'd wear them. Even though they are a size to big.
 I like the studs on them :)
The last one i was mid dance lol. I can't dance but i like to.

Outfit;
Black Cardigan - I don't remember were i got it.
Black Top - Primark
Trousers - CuteJapaneseFashion


 Hehe when i saw those t-shirts i had to buy them. Even though the you wok one is to big.
They are to cool to leave in the store. I got them from tk max. I don't normally like tk max. But they do have some funky t-shirts.
Over sized jumper from Select. I like over sized jumpers. They are so comfy. This one is long and goes past my bum, which is even better :)

Hehe kpop socks!!
The yellow one is of Dara from 2NE1. The blue one is of EunHyuk from Super Junior.
I love 2NE1 because they aren't like other girl groups. And i slightly became obsessed with Super Junior and EunHyuk is my bias. I found them on eBay ^_^

Do you like any kpop groups?

My Beauty Diary FaceQ Face Mask




This is a Taiwanese brand, which i believe is popular.
I've seen them around on the Internet before while looking for products.

First of i have to say this is the best face mask i have ever used.

This face mask is supposed to;


Face Q Red Pomegranate + Co Q10 Mask Mask is made from 100% wood pulp with silk, it fit your facial contour twice as best as normal paper mask and rapidly infiltrate nourishment for your skin.
Red pomegranate and Anthocyanin are two powerful anti-oxidant ingredients. It fights against dullness and dehydration. Camomile extracts is also added to avoid further dark pigment formulation, helping skin to restore its natural glow.
After application your skin will become supple, smooth. Its mild and gentle nature makes it suitable even after sun bathing, it will soothe and calm the redness due to long sun exposure.

  • Whitening & Brightening
  • Oil Control
  • Lightening of spots & fine lines
  • Anti-Oxidant & Regenerating 
 
 
 Suitable For
all skin type / dry and delicate skin 
After using this face mask my face felt a lot softer than it normally does.
My pores looked smaller and my skin looked brighter and felt less dry. The face mask is thinner than the ones I'm used to. I think the product absorbed better into my skin because it's thinner. The mask is white and a little see through. I will be buying this mask again as i think it really did work well.  
 I bought the mask on eBay, i decided to buy some lose ones before i bought a box of them.

Etude House Proof 10 Jewerly Pencil #3 Metallic Aqua


This is my first Etude House eyeliner.
This product is endorsed by 2NE1. If you don't know who they are, they are a Korean pop group. They are amazing :)


I really like the packaging, it's so shiney :)
The pencil its self is not one that you need to sharpen, it's a twisty one. Like Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Definer. Which makes it better to use, since you don't need to sharpen it. It even comes with a sharpner on the end, the blue bit pulls out. Not that you need it.

It's creamy and glides on easy. It says you can use it as a eye shadow, but i'v not tried that.
The colour is pigmented. 
It says it will last for 24hours. It really does last all day. I thought it would last for a few hours then start to fade. But it doesn't.

It is water proof, so if you were in the rain or cry you would be fine, but i'd say you couldn't go swiming with it on. I swached it on my hand and hold it under water while rubbing it, and most of it rubbed of, but some of it stayed.


No worry's if you can't read Korean, like me, there is english on one side of the box.

Overall - I love this eyeliner, and i will be buying more. I would recomend this to anyone.

Etude House Nail Polish

 This is my first Etude House nail polish. I love the shape of the bottle and the cap. Different from what I'm used to seeing.

That is with just one coat of colour, and i really like it. It's not obvious and doesn't stand out. But right now i want my nails to look like that. I might try adding another coat next time.
I bought this for around £4. Which isn't to bad.
The formula is nice, the polish went on smoothly and dryed quickly too.

The colour is quite close to the colour in the bottle too ^_^
I think i will buy more from Etude House. I bought this one because I've been looking for a lilac shade for a while. But couldn't find one.

:O It's been 7 days since i last posted oops. Sorry.
My next posts will be on My Beauty Diary face mask which i am going to try out tonight and Etude House eyeliner.

Drama Of The Month

So i love to watch Japanese Dramas, sometimes Korean ones.
So i figured I'd do a post every month on the one/s I've been watching.
If it's a old drama i get through it within a week. I get addicted to them and watch them instead of the TV channels i have. If it's a drama that's currently airing, i still get addicted and impatient waiting for them to be subbed.

Yes i watch them with English sub titles, my Japanese isn't good enough to understand it.

So this months will be... Ermmm...

Hungry

That is the title.
So it's about this guy called Eisuke, who is a bassist of a rock band. But the band gave up on their dream because they weren't getting anywhere with it.
So Eisuke opens a restaurant after his mother dies and her restaurant his taken away. Since he promised his mum that when he turns 30 he will go back to cooking.
It's a french restaurant he opens.
The people that were in the rock band with him, also help him to set up and run the restaurant.
There's a girl called Chie who's always wanted to go to Eisuke's mother's restaurant, but never had the chance. So she goes to Eisuke's and falls in love with his cooking. She helps them along the way by doing little things and encouraging Eisuke.

It is very entertaining and not all about food.
I would recommend this to anyone!
The drama had me laughing and crying at some points.
It isn't a sad drama, so you won't be crying a lot.

That link will explain it a lot better than i did. And you can also watch it there too.

It is a new drama that had just finished airing, all the episodes are up and subtitles.

What's in my makeup bag

The makeup i keep in my bag with me while I'm out, so it's what i keep on me for everyday use.
I don't carry much, since i don't need to.

 Not the nicest of makeup bags, but it will do. It came from the body shop, it had some stuff in it like face wash and toner.
Starting from the top left;
H2 Zero Hand Sanitiser - Keeping germs away.
Pain killers - You never know when a headache may pop up.
Pocket Mirror - Everyone should have one.
Carmex Lip Balm - I don't like lip gloss or lip stick, so i always wear some kind of lip balm, this just happens to be the one in my bag at the moment. But it's almost empty.
Sleek Consealer - For consealer touch up's.
Gatsby Oil Clear Sheet - These are mainly for summer, they are for getting rid of extra facial oil/sweat.
Comb - For hair touch ups.
Folk, Spoon, Chopsticks Travel Set - You never know when you may need a folk. I found it on ebay i can't remember the price, it came from Hong Kong i think.
Rimmel Waterproof Eye Definer - For eyeliner touch up's of course
Bobbles - I might need to tie my hair up.

Well that's all, i don't carry anything like foundation with me, because i use BB Cream and it stays in place, and most of the time i don't have much eye makeup on apart from eyeliner.
