Sketchers Lunacy Dragon Tattoo boots are here! + my first Putumayo skirt~

Yes, well my boots arrived today! I ordered them from Shoebuy.com. They also have them on 6pm.com (great HD photos there from all angles!) but sadly they didn't have my size. Amazon also has them but they cost more--mind you, Amazon lists them as made of leather but they're not (well, it's fake leather).
I ordered a size 7, even though my foot measures 23.5cm, which is a 6.5. They fit snugly with cotton socks, but aren't uncomfortable! I wore them a bit about the house and they're very comfy!

 OOTD (with different boots though):

As for my skirt, I bought it off the EGL comm sales, and I think I'm totally done with tracked packages from Canada--this one had no tracking and arrived in one week (yesterday)! The brand is Putumayo but I have no idea if this piece has an official name. Either way, I ♥ butterflies!

New Liz Lisa dress, 4 Oufit Ideas!

Hello dears, I meant to post earlier but I had a very long paper to write by Monday ;___;

Thankfully that's over, and I did receive my latest Liz Lisa dress in the mail the other day, of course I couldn't wait to try it on and see how I can wear it with the shoes and stuff I already have. Here's what I came up with.
Which do you like best?

I love the contrast of #2 but I also like the boots with it, in #4. I really like how this piece can be dressed up or down. They're hard to see, but the heels in #1 have bows on the sides.

Unfortunately, the weather in Chicago is awful, and by no means is it dress weather.I can't wait for summer.

Ubran Decay Naked2 Palette Review

So today I decided to actually try my new stuffs out! I put on the busted shade in my crease&lower lash liner, the verve shade on my lids, and the foxy shade for my browbone. I also tried out the Supercurl Curling Mascara, and I used the lip plumping gloss that came with the palette. Sadly the photos I took were with my phone and they're tinted yellow so I don't have any photos to share!

My thoughts on the shadows: Excellent! NO creasing, I used some of the primer potion that came in one of the sample cards as well, and I applied this makeup at 9:30am, and right now, it's still just as it was this morning!

The lip gloss: Tastes sweet, smells sweet. It actually reminded me of Burt's Bees Beeswax lip balm, because when you put it on your lips start feeling nice n' cool! I love it and hope I don't lose it, the tube is fairly small!

The mascara: I love it! I've tried many different mascaras, but this is my first one with a curved brush. It applied evenly to my lashes, separated and spread them, and it is the only mascara I own that also evenly applied to my lower lashes too, with absolutely no clumping! It fans out my lashes and curves them upward. I've been wearing it since 9:30am, and it has not flaked whatsoever, and my lashes are still curled!

I would recommend all of these items!

Urban Decay 50-for-50 Review!

In celebration of rediscovering this blog that I had completely forgotten about, I have decided to do a review on the Urban Decay order I just received today! Urban Decay is currently running a "Spend $50, get $50" promotion, so I decided to take advantage of it, and ordered the NAKED2 palette. I placed my order on April 10th, and chose the USPS Priority Mail option, which was free for order $50+.

The items arrived safely in a box stuffed with Styrofoam peanuts (I don't have a photo, sorry!), and everything was wrapped up (click photos to enlarge!):


When I unwrapped the first layer of tissue:

Inside of NAKED2 Palette--the mirror isn't funky, there's a film over it!

Bonus bag is a zippered travel bag:


And the contents:
-Primer Potion sample
-Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup sample with a shade matching card
-All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray ($12)
-Eyeshadow in the shade "Sin" ($18)
-Supercurl Curling Mascara ($20)

So altogether, the bonus items to add up to exactly $50! Even if they didn't, it's always nice to get free stuff :D

I am pleased with the order, and I really can't wait to try out my new palette!
Although...after paying so much I kind of want to use is sparingly! It is my most expensive makeup item right now. I do think it's going to be worth every penny, though.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoyed it! ♥
