PLNDR

Woah, first of all.. can you smell something special coming? Don’t peak! Don’t scroll down!!

Okay.. you might be able to see it infront of you anyway (if your screen is as big as my 24″ iMac screen). I’ve uploaded a new video! HELLO!

Not too exciting because it’s not a “tutorial”, yes yes, I’m getting to that, but it’s a haul video? *clap clap*

 

Let me introduce.. PLNDR.

PLNDR is the sister website of Karmaloop and is an exclusive “member’s only” area for Karmaloop customers! The concept is much like Ozsale, BrandsExclusive, and I’m sure many other websites out there. But the good thing with PLNDR is that it focuses on fashion.

 

The items I chose:

1. As Sweet As Sin dress ($44.99) – Size S

 

2. The Burning One Shoulder Party Dress in Black ($39.99) – Size M

 

3. The Jack Ring in Silver ($36.00) – Size 7

 

4. The Made with Love Ziggy Tank Top ($19.98) – Size S/M

 

5. The Tell It to the Rain Top in Vanilla & Ivory ($27.00) – Size S

 

6. The Midnight Lullaby Playsuit in Chevron Print ($71.98) – Size M

 

 

My thoughts?

I go into more detail in the video but in a few basic words, I think the site is “trendy”, “fun”, “affordable”. I will definitely repurchase.

My favourite pieces were definitely selection 6 – The Midnight Lullaby Playsuit in Chevron Print and selection 5 – The Tell It to the Rain Top in Vanilla & Ivory.

DIY: Volumising your old false lashes

April 2, 2013 | 9 comments so far - join the discussion!

I’m finally back. I’m actually a little embarrassed that I haven’t blogged for such a long time. I want to have the perfect reason, but I don’t.. so I have come back with a Do-it-Yourself tutorial!!

Since purchasing hundreds of false lashes from Taiwan, I’ve realised that most of the ones I purchased are quite natural! I’m not a big fan of “thick thick” lashes because I feel like it drops my eyes down or looks really “fake”, but on occasions where you want to bring a little more attention to your eyes, the typical natural lash just isn’t enough.

This technique will also work for volumising your old false lashes which you’ve probably worn for about a week or two, and really need some freshening up!

It’s really a simple idea really, and I’ve definitely talked about it in my videos or posts before. The “doubling” technique.

 

By using this technique, you can upgrade the most simplest lashes to look more perky.

 

Lots of us spend hundreds on our favourite “style” of eyelashes, but we do not realise that these could be easily made ourselves with the hundreds of lashes we do not use.

 

Let me show you what I mean.

 

I’m taking the below two types of lashes.

The first box is a box I purchased from Taiwan. These lashes are extremely nice as they are long and really bring out the eyes, but after a few wears, I realised they didn’t have any volume in them. It was just long. I wanted to make a pair of lashes that would help my eyes stand out with miminal eyeliner and eyeshadow.

The second box is a box I purchased from Ebay. I’ve had a few of these sets of lashes for a long time. They were cheap but the band is stiff and really hard to wear. They would keep poking my eyes and I really did not find much use for them.

Our first step is to take the cheap ebay lashes and snip it in 3. I use a nail clipper because I find that it’s easier to cut. Ofcourse you can choose to use anything from a pair of kitchen scissors to a pair of nose hair clippers. ^O^

The step is to choose your piece. I like more volume in the centre because I feel like that creates more of a dolly (larger looking) eye. I know many of you may like more volume on the outer corner to create more of a sultry (sexy looking) eye so feel free to use the outer third of the lash.

I chose the middle piece.

Although this is a very simple technique, many people do not actually remember to “bend” the two lashes together. This will help to blend the lashes to help the lashes look more realistic and less “chunky”. It is almost to do so whilst it’s drying because once the lashes are dry, they will be stuck and will be hard to alter.

 

The result is subtle, but definitely noticable. I’ll let you judge. Excuse my eyes as I am not wearing contacts. I’ve cut down on wearing contacts now. :)

If you analyse the two lashes below, you can see exactly where I stuck the extra piece of lash. Be creative, you can add smaller pieces to different areas of the lash. Experiment with it and you will find which style of lashes suit you best!

 

Stop wasting money on purchasing lashes which do not suit you! Utilise what you’ve got. ;)

If you’ve also done this, show me your creations!

I’ve never been a huge fan of blue lenses.. mainly because they stand out so much – especially in flash photography!

For some reason, I’ve never liked the light eyes look because I’ve found it so hard to match it with my eye makeup. But, I’m trying these circle lenses because I think it’s one of Xiaxue’s favourite circle lenses!

I love the design on them because it is so bright – It’s hard to find bright circle lenses that stand out on dark eyes.

 

With or without flash, the lenses appear amazing in photography! Lighting used here is just a ring light with my SLR!

Although these lenses are not large – only 14.5mm in diameter, they are still not very comfortable. I can’t say I can wear these for over 5 hours.. which is disappointing because I love the effect of the lenses so much!

I don’t know if it’s just me, but for some reason, I feel like the lighter the colour of my lenses, the more uncomfortable it becomes. My Shinny greys were alot more comfortable than these Shinny aquas! You can see my review on the G&G Shinny Greys here.

 

Comfort: ✰✰✰
Enlarging effect: ✰
Design: ✰✰✰✰✰

 

Overall: ✰✰✰✰

 

Anyhow, overall, I would still give it a high rating just because of the amazing colour!!

 

Without flash, it obviously does not look as bright, but it still sort of reminds me of husky eyes!

 

 

 

Anyhow, last camwhore photo because I recently wore this top out and got laughed at by a few restaurant staff.

 

It is supposed to read “I (heart) Angry Birds” but because I wore a high waisted skirt, it only showed as “I (heart) Angry”. Just a little laugh!

Until next time! <3

After what seems like months of waiting for my ring to arrive, it’s finally arrived!!!

 

“Oui” means “Yes, I do” in french. ^O^~

 

I purchased this ring from Etsy early November, and it’s only just arrived at my house yesterday. It is made of sterling silver wire and a CZ stone on the dot of the i. Inspired by the Dior Oui ring, it’s one amazing ring I’ve added to my collection.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sorry I’ve been so MIA. I’ve been away on road trips and spending time with friends and family. It’s almost christmas and I’m feeling really festive. What is everyone else doing for Christmas?
