It's finally here! The 200+ Followers giveaway that I promised you all wayyyyy back! WOOO! -parties- I'm so effin' excited.. like a kid in a candy-store or something. lol.

Enough babbling, I let you all wait for wayyy too long already \(^o^)

Let's take a look at the prizes, shall we? For some reason they don't look like much, but it still took me a lot of time and money to get it. lol. Anyway.. here goes:

The main prize comes with:
1 Nail polish from 'Color Club' in the color "Peppermint Twist"
1 Nail polish from 'Canmake' in the color "005A"
1 Hello Kitty satchel bag

1 Box of my favorite, soft and natural eBay lashes
1 e.l.f. Nailpolish in "Mod Mauve"
1 NYX Jumbo Eyepencil in "Lavender"

Now, the rules may seem rather long and overwhelming, but I tried my best to make this fair for everyone - both long-time followers and newer ones.

The main prize is for long-time followers ONLY
The other two 'extra' prizes can be won by anyone

☓ You must be a public follower of my blog through Blogger.
☓ If you enter with a blog that has only been made to enter giveaways, you will be immediately disqualified.
☓ If you’re not one of the lucky 3 winners this time around and you un-follow my blog for whatever reason, you will not be able to participate in any future giveaways. This is mainly to ‘protect’ my loyal followers, as it isn’t really fair to them, if people can just follow and un-follow depending on current giveaways.
☓ The giveaway is open internationally, HOWEVER: I will not be held responsible if the prizes get lost in the mail. Make sure that your mailing service is trustworthy before you enter.

The contest runs from Jan. 29th till March 1st.

+1 Comment on this entry with your name and email address.

+1 Add to your comment what you would like to see more of on my blog, what you’d like to win in a future giveaway etc.
+1 Post an entry on your blog with one of the pictures above (preferably the one with all the prizes gathered) and a link back to the giveaway post. Comments with ‘I’ll blog about it later’ will not be considered a valid entry and therefore won’t count. Remember to post a direct link to your entry.
+2 Post a picture (preferably the one with all the prizes gathered) and link on your blog at a constantly visible spot (below your banner, either of the sidebars etc. – putting it at the bottom of your site doesn’t count, lol. Not really that visible, aye?) Remember to include your blog link.

This concludes in a max. of 5 entries per person.
The main ‘pink themed’ prize is for long-time, active followers only, as they’re pretty much the ones who got me ‘this far’ in the first place. The two extra prizes are for everyone to try their luck with. Don’t worry about what category you fall into. I got all that figured out ^^v
The main prize winner will be picked by me – the two other winners will be picked randomly.

Good luck everyone and thank you so much for the support ♥
Remember, this is only my first giveaway so far – even if you don’t win this time around, there’ll be plenty of opportunities for you to win in the future.

Don't forget to spread the word!

♥ ♥ ♥

You cannot enter as anonymous as I need the link to your profile on Blogger to make sure that you're actually a follower. And as stated in the beginning of the entry, the main prize is for long-time followers ONLY. You cannot request winning it - that just proves that you didn't even bother to read my rules, and that's kinda rude..

SWAPPIN' with the U.S of A

Hey guys..
So, in favor of Tuan's request, here's the post on all the stuff I got from him. He also shipped over my YesStyle order (with my fab. purse and some stuff for the giveaway), but let's stick to the purse and the stuff for ME. Bahha

WARNING: Picture heavy!!

So here's all the stuff I got.

Of course I got my FABULOUS purse! Photos on YesStyle don't even do it justice, I swear. It's so pretty and fluffy and soft and spacious. Ahhh, I love it! I was kinda worried that it'd look like a kinder-garden bag for a 5-yearold, but it's pretty damn stylish for a faux fur bag! \(^o^)

I'm not gonna show you guys what I got for the giveaway.. Cause it's a secret ; D haha! Next entry up - shall be my 200+ Followers giveaway! WOOO! I already got all the rules and dates down.. So yeah, BE EXCITED! (I know I keep talking about it (all talk - no play), but I'm really so damn excited!)

So yeah... NOW to the stuff that Tuan got me : D

e.l.f. Lipglosses

Houston, New York City, Los Angeles, Wild, Perfect Pink

He got me 5 Super Glossy Lipshines w/ SPF 15. I have one of those already, and I actually really like it. They're not really that sticky, but they're just sticky enough for you to know that they will last for a few hours. I don't really use dark colors on my lips, but I'll definitely try these out. They're sheer, but they still give a nice color payoff.

Raspberry, Berry Cherry, Pageant Princess, Ruby Kiss
--- (the last one was missing its sticker)

He also got me 5 of the Hypershine Glosses. These are similar to the one I bought a while back in the color 'Bubble Gum'. The texture of these is SUPER nice. However, I feel that the dispenser of the product is very cheap. The way it dispenses the product into the brush makes it smear everywhere in the tube. The colors are FAB tho! I can wear all of these, actually! My mom would really like the darkest red-ish color tho ; D

Then I got the Shimmering Facial Whip. I'm honestly not quite sure what this is.. I'm guessing it'd be good for some sort of blush/highlighter-thing. I haven't opened it yet, but I'm gonna go with the highlight-theory. lol

Here a few samples. First off a Tom's Daily Moisture soap bar with olive oil and Vitamin E. Then a sample sized Burt's & Bees nourishing body lotion (which I use as a hand cream. MAN it smells GOOOOD *_*) and lastly a Burt's & Bees chapstick. I really like the chapstick. It gives a cooling, prickly feeling on the lips. Nice : D

Philosophy, y'all! I got the Purity cleanser the last time, and this time Mr. Tuan got me two items. The Hope in a Jar moisturizer and On a Clear Day facial primer with salicylic acid. I don't have a tendency to acne, lol, but I'm very excited about the primer. I never had a primer before (except for UDPP and TFSI), so this is definitely interesting! : D Also I've been wanting to try out the Hope in a Jar ever since I read this massive article on how amazing it was. I've been using it for a few days. It's definitely moisturizing, but it's quite difficult to figure out how much to use at a time. -sigh- I'll get to it tho.

I heard a lot of hype about the Sonia Kashuk Full-Glam Lashes, so I pretty much asked Tuan to get them for me.. However, these were the only ones they seemed to have at his Target, lol. They look pretty natural, but from what I can remember, the Full-Glam lashes look a bit different - more spiky and edgy. These could almost go for being a pair of eylure lashes tho. I dunno about the softness of these tho, as I haven't opened majority of these things yet, but I'm pretty sure they won't be too hay-ish.

A HUGE pile of Melties! NOMNOMNONMOM! Meiji Melty Blends in caramel, strawberry and milk chocolate. Deeeelicious! Tanja prefers the strawberry and milk chocolate ones - I really like the caramels. Haha! I guess it all works out fine then, huh? : P

And to the MAJOR surprise!!!
- you sneaky bastard, Tuannieeeee!

MAC items! As most of you may already know, I only own ONE MAC item - the creme sheen glass in 'Boybait', which Yinnie so generously got me in our last swap. This time Tuan really surprised me tho.. He got me THREE items! A foundation, a lipstick and a blush! WOOO! ~(^o^~)

He got me the Pro Longwear foundation in NC20. I reckon that it's a pretty good guess in shade, as I've become rather pale lately. I have no idea how the MAC shades work tho, but I'm gonna try this one out during the weekend, I guess. We'll see then.. I'm VERY happy about it tho! : D I got a foundation from MAC! I'm one of the cool gals now ; D

Next up is the lipstick. I got the Viva Glam V lipstick. I only heard about the Viva Glam Gaga, but this appears to be a very subtle, shimmery, neutral color. I really like it : D I haven't swatched it yet, lol. BUT I SHALL! I promise ^^"

Last is the blush. He got me the mineralized blush in 'Warm Soul'. VEEERY pretty! It has shimmers tho, but the pigmentation and color is very nice. It's kind of a neutral, peachy-pinkish color. It could pass as a blush/highlighter, I reckon.

Wow.. all this stuff - FOR ME :''D WEEE!
A HUGE-ass thank you to Tuan for sending me such goodies! You definitely overdid yourself this time... and now I have to buy you a ferry or a basketball team to ever top this. lol. DAMN YOU! But I really love these items : D
♥ Again; thank you SOOOOOOOO much! ♥

Next post up will be my 200+ Followers Giveaway! WOO!
Excited exciiited! And after that.. probably the haul from Wednesday. lol. I shopped for about 250 bucks. *hangs self*

Anyway.. Until next time!
Much love

OMNIA, NULA & a bunny

... aaaand she's back! WOO!

lol. hi guys! (^3^)/

I got TWO boxes in the mail today.. however, Tuan made me promise to not open it until he could get on Skype and watch my reaction (he's a total stalker, I know Ö).. Hah! Joke aside.. I got my NULA lashes and my SUUUPER cute wallet! So yeah.. here we go.

I got my NULA lashes a while ago. I ordered them in the style W71 and they're absolutely gorgeous. I had planned to do an entry with a look of me wearing them, but they're honestly so beautiful that I cannot make myself wear them. lol. What am I gonna doooo? They're super soft, manageable and just.. ahh gorgeous!

Now to the item I've been having a bit of trouble with. From my last entry you'd probably remember that the seller was a bit annoying - he went out of stock and didn't bother to tell me. I left him feedback saying that the wallet was fabulous but his customer service needed an upgrade. Haha! \(^-^)/

Omnia Crystal Gold Leopard Wallet

It all looks pretty genuine. But what do I know? Nothing about OMNIA that's for sure. Anyway, packaging was super pro. It came in a hard mailing box and was in its own box from the 'fabric' or whatever. The wallet itself was wrapped in thin paper and has clear protecting tape across the rhinestones.

It also came with a sheet of thin paper inside the wallet along with this thing. Now I'm not quite sure what it's for. I'm assuming it's some sort of fabric sample and description of which item you got. Some sort of 'your item is legit'-sheet or something.. lol. The text is hard to see, cause I photographed it in the sun. I fail. But it says 'sogajuk/sokajuk'. Feel free to enlighten me on what that means. Haha! xD Maybe it means 'leopard'?

Anyway.. here it is. The beauty that is my new wallet

Comparing the photos on the sellers page to the real deal - BIG DIFFERENCE. The real deal is WAY more sparkly. It's apparently made of Italian cowhide, which would explain the smell. lol. I'm against real fur, but I can live with leather (we eat the animals anyway, so it's not like they're bred for just the skin like minks, foxes and some bunnies). I just don't really like the smell of leather. Anyway, just by feeling this thing, you can sense that it's great quality and not just a cheap knock-off.

Some details:

I'm SO loving this wallet. When I first pulled it out of the case I was like a little kid in a toy store! GOSH so pretty! I love it!

Lastly, I wanna just let you all know that my swap haul (with Tøøøn) and my giveaway will be up this week. Just gotta wait for him to get his lazy ass home so I can unwrap this stuff! : D eeeek excited!

ALSO.. a HUUUUUUUUUGE thank you to all my followers! I LOVE YOU GUYS! We actually made 209 followers per today! (which is gonna be embarrassing if someone un-follows. That certainly has happened a few times >_>) lol.

Your reward iiiiis

A pic of Saya on my pillow. XD Hahahha! Batman bedding sheets ftw!
Have a great day guys!

Love y'all

FOTD + a little haul


So I'm back with a little tiny petite haul. lol.
As most of you may already know, I got my license on Wednesday last week - and I haven't been driving since. I'm TERRIFIED of driving my parents' huge-ass Kia Carnival. Its steering skills are TERRIBLE. It's like driving a ferry -__-" Anyway.. I finally got over my fear of breaking the car to pieces and got in it, took Tanja and myself downtown and got a few things.

Of course I bought myself a bag of candy, two bars of Ritter Sport and 10 bottles of 1½ liters Pepsi Max. lol. But that aside, here's what I got - both today and from the past 2 days : D

Now, first I got the Revlon ColorStay Active - I bought this on eBay (my only source for Revlon and NYX items) for about $7,50 or something.. It's in the color 150 Buff - I got the one in 04 Nude, but I reckon it's become a bit too dark for me. Can you even imagine that? I went from Natural Tan in the summer to 004 Nude in just two weeks. And now I got all the way down to 150 Buff. *sigh*

The next item is actually an anniversary present from Tanja. Haha, we celebrated our 11 months anniversary at Kebab House with my younger brother. Anyway, this one came in a bit late, but we already went through disc 1-4. Got two discs left! UGHH this stuff is so addictiiiing! However, Cameron needs to stop being so damn annoying! lol

To an item I actually bought TODAY, downtown.. The Biotherm Rides Repair Nuit - night cream. I realized recently that this one is actually anti-wrinkle-repair-stuff.. But nonetheless it works WONDERS. I had a tiny sample that lasted me 2½ days.. and just on those two days. Gurls, lemme tell you. This may be $90, but DAMN it's amazing! I had a giftcard - so yeah.. I paid nothing. Haha, but still! It's worth it! I do believe that you can get this on eBay and Amazon. Not sure tho.. I'd be rather hesitant to buy expensive skin care on eBay tho. AND Amazon - we've seen fakes on there before -__-"

So.. speaking of eBay AND expensive things.. Next and last item up is this AMAZING (at least I think that it's amazing -__-") wallet. It's medium sized and by the Korean brand OMNIA. As mentioned I got this off eBay.. The seller didn't ship it out yet and I paid for the item like 5 days ago. I messaged him like ''Hey, when will you ship my item out? Am very excited to get it : D'' and his reply was something like ''Oh happy to deal with you.. Sorry but I'm currently out of stock. I'll message u around Friday with a new shipping date''... O____O EXCUSE ME WHAT? The moron didn't even send me a message after checkout with ''Thanks for your purchase, we had an update error on eBay and the item is currently out of stock. I'll order it for you and contact you with new shipping details on Friday'' OHHH NO, I had to ASK myself.. Gosh, I hate stupid people. -___-" It better be FABULOUS quality for an effin' $57.

to wrap this up.. after rant, hauling and what not.. FOTD : D yay!

Revlon ColorStay Active in "150 Buff"
e.l.f. Studio HD Powder
e.l.f. Mineral Blush in "Joy"
Shitty L'oréal bronzer

I truly appreciate the support!

NOTD+FOTD &' a Giveaway update! ☆

Hey guys!

I'm sorry about the last post.. I guess my inner fangirl took over and I just HAD to post about the album. It completed my Miyavi collection of full-length albums so far, so I kinda just felt that I had to... to settle my soul in peace and what not.

Anyway, my YesStyle stuff arrived at my friend's house in San Diego yesterday! WOO! The purse actually came in a bag.. How stylish is that? I'm so excited. He posted a photo on my wall of the purse just for a tease -__-" Boys suck like that.. anyway, he apparently ALSO investigated the purse a little bit. Hmm... there better not be KFC and bbq sauce on my purse when it gets here Ò__ó lol.

I attended a birthday party in Aalborg today with my parents. It was a very casual brunch-thing, so I didn't really do much with the outfit and all.. mostly because all my clothes are in laundry bags and boxes. lol. I SUCK so bad at getting my clothes into the laundry bags and putting them in our laundry room here at home. I take WEEKS to do it.. and by then.. I'm out of clean clothes - sexy much? lol. Baby, I know..

I apologize for looking absolute crap. Bad hair-day, bad lash-day, bad face-day in general.. oh and look at my nasty lips. Ew.. I'm sorry : ( My poses are so awkward these days.. -__-" I need a better camera that can just magically make me look pretty.. AND I should REALLY have fixed my hair. lol. Stupid waves all over the place..

Revlon Colorstay Active in 004 Nude
Elf HD Setting Powder
Elf Mineral Blush in 'Joy' (PERFECT for that wintery blush on fair/medium light skin)
Shitty bronzer (the L'oréal one that I hate and am ashamed to use)

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Elf Duo in 'Mocha Swirl' (the light color - lid)
wet'n wild coloricon shadows in 'Kitten' (crease and outer corner) and 'Nutty' (outer corner and V)

Mentholatum Lipbalm (my ALL TIME favorite - look forward to getting a pack of these, Yinnie!)

O.P.I Strengthening base coat
Essie 'Fill the Gap!' Ridge Filler
Nail stickers from Korea
Top Coat

I love the Essie ridge filler, cause it brightens the nails - takes away all yellowness and grossness. AND it makes it look like you got a manicure ; D

Also, I really wanna share my current shampoo and conditioner with you guys. A LOT of people are raving about Tresemmé - and we do have that here.. But I LOVE Schwarzkopf (happily unaware whether they test on animals or not ó__Ò ) - they were also the 'creators' of my previous shampoo and conditioner under the name 'Gliss'. Anyway, my mom brought me back two bottles from Germany before Christmas. Instantly FELL IN LOVE with these! They are SO amazing.. they wash my hair, make it soft and just super shiny. And they come in huge bottles of 500 ml. each. These were on sale for 29 DKK (about 5 bucks) per bottle (they're usually 54-60 - which is 10-12 bucks)) - sooo awesome! Anyway, the bottles my mom got me were the Nutrition Oil ones - these are Repair Therapy. Got two bottles of conditioner and three bottles of the shampoo - cause we all know that the shampoo goes faster than the conditioner. So yeah.. definitely check these out \(^o^)v

I'm reaching 200 followers (hopefully) soon, and the final items for the giveaway are on their way (hopefully). I'm hoping that I can get it up in about 2 weeks. Maybe less : D So yeah.. be excited! I changed up some of the brands tho..

☆ Brands included in the giveaway
Color Club

Also.. Saya says hi this time : D

Much love

Confessions of a Collector

What you may not know about me, is that I've been a huge jrock fan for AGES. Okay, maybe not ages.. But I found out about it back in 2005/2006 and have been collecting both albums (preferably limited edition) and dvds (limited ftw!). If I can get my hands on a limited edition album that turns out to be sold out a short while after I got mine - or if they sell out immediately, but I got to order mine first.. then I'll be in heaven! Haha, even if I don't like the album - doesn't matter. As long as I got it. There's just a special feeling that goes through me (no sexual -__-") when I stand with that particular item in my hands.. It's difficult to describe.. But it's kinda like when you FINALLY receive that huge makeup order you placed a long time ago and have been eagerly awaiting : D

To make it short, I finally received my Miyavi album in the mail - Limited Edition First Press, of course. I'm surprised it didn't sell out a long time ago. It finally sold out on CDJapan, but I got mine from YesAsia anyway. I prefer paying a dollar more for the item and then receiving free shipping, than saving the dollar and having to pay 10 bucks for shipping. Also with CDJapan the items almost ALWAYS get caught up at customs and it ends up with me having to pay $100 to even pick it up. It's ridiculous.

Anyway.. to the album itself.

Artist: Miyavi
Title: What's My Name?
Edition: Limited Edition, 2in1 First Press. (comes with a Be@rbrick figure)
Release date: 13th of Oct. 2010
Description (from YesAsia): Self-proclaimed "Samurai Guitarist" Miyavi made his re-debut in September 2010 with the single Torture. A month later, the immensely talented artist unleashes a full-blown comeback with his sixth original album What's My Name?. Working with Yoshioka Tokanzu as co-producer/co-engineer once again, Miyavi serves up 14 wicked new tracks, including Torture and many more. By the end of the album, you will definitely remember that this is Miyavi.
First Press Edition comes with a special Be@rbrick Miyavi figure and volume two of footage from Miyavi's Neo Tokyo Samurai Black World Tour on DVD.
Purchase: YesAsia, $80,49


The box is HUGE. For a second I feared that the box itself took up the shown volume - but luckily the box with the little be@rbrick figure detaches from the cd/dvd box. I honestly HATE big packaging (which is why most Kpop releases ANNOY me when it comes to the packaging)
Other than the size, I'm pretty happy with the packaging/looks of the album+dvd. It's gonna look awkward on my shelf with the other releases as they're pretty normal sized albums, but I can live with that.. I need to re-arrange my albums anyway, as space is getting limited. -sigh-

However.. that bear.. What is it for? Did I miss a PV with him having this bear attached to his outfit, guitar/something somewhere? It's obviously a cellphone accessory.. but it's rather big and chunky (and made in China, lol) so I doubt it's gonna be as convenient as I'd want it to. Besides.. I already got a strap on my phone.. with a Pokémon on it. lol. I like how all Myv's tattoos are on the bear tho.. That's kinda cute. I guess it's just a fangirl-item. I'm over the fangirl-days, but I guess it's cute for just having around.

Overall: I haven't listened to the songs or watched the DVD yet. But I'm definitely excited to check it out! I guess the bear is cute.. Generally the Japanese artists sure know how to ROCK a limited edition item. They pimp it up with awesome stuff! The Koreans could learn a lot from them!

Lastly, Sasuke apparently wants to say hi. xD lol
