strawberry nails

August 18, 2011
I painted it yesterday because I was bored. It actually took me a while because I couldn't decide rather to paint all of them into strawberries or just some LOL.

This was inspired by a nail tutorial that bubzbeauty did a long time ago.

Cartilage piercing

August 11, 2011

I've already talked a little about it on my personal blog, but I'm going to go in more depth with what I know about it for those that are thinking about getting it pierced.

Okay, just like any other piercing, if you are under 18, you will need parent's or guardian's consent because there are paper works to do. Since I was already 18 I didn't need to have my parents with me when I did it.

I got this piercing yesterday, and the reason it's a little pink is because when I was putting my hair up to take this picture I accidentally touched it, and I just put on the solution.

The Experience:
The overall experience was good. The girl that did my piercing was nice and she seems to know what she was talking about. It was actually really quick. She used a need gun to pierce my cartilage. Before she pierced it she marked a dot with a marker to make sure that was the place I wanted it to be pierced. I'm not going to lie; it did hurt, but only for like two seconds.

How to Take Care of It:
She told me that I had to clean it twice a day and make sure my hands were clean before I apply the solution. The solution was free with my piercing. I just had to pay for the earring.
  • tie hair up
  • wash hands
  • take cotton swab or cotton ball (I prefer the cotton swab/q-tip so I can reach my inner ear better. I have small ears) and pour the solution on it
  • apply it on the inner ear around the earring and behind the ear
  • then, twist the earring around 2-3 times
  • done!
***Remember you have to do that everyday at least twice.***

Other Things You Need To Know:
  • Don't remove your piercing for the first 10-12 weeks. After the 10th-12th weeks you can remove it, but you should still have something in the hole or else it will close up.
  • You should definitely have a stud earring in the hole for a year. You can't wear hoops until after a year.
  • If you had a choice to choose which earring(s) you want, I would opt for a small stud because it won't get caught in things as easily. You can get bigger ones, but still be aware that your hair or anything might get caught. 
  • Try not to touch it. It's very sensitive when it's first pierced and you don't want to have an infection because you touch it with your dirty hands.
  • Try not to apply any pressure in that area because it will hurt. I slept on my back and on my left side the whole night and if I really wanted to sleep on my right side I made a little cuff with my hand and just laid on top of it LOL.
  • Try not to go swimming for the first 10-12 weeks because the chemicals from the pool or ocean/lake/sea/river/other bodies of water can make you have a higher risk in having an infection.
The key to avoid infection is to take care of your piercing. Clean it 2-3 times a day and try to avoid irritating it.
Cartilage piercing is one of the piercings that heals the fastest besides the lobes.

I got my piercing done at Claire's for about $33. I got some coupons - a 20% off one and a $10 off of purchases that are $20 or more. :)

YesStyle mini hual and review

August 09, 2011
I ordered from YesStyle on July 31, and the stuff I bought came yesterday. It wasn't that bad since it said that it should get here 6-14 business days. The packaging was okay. I was kinda expecting a box, but it was just a plastic covering. No biggie since the products were still in pretty good shape or so I thought.

I got a set of tops and a purse. My sister got two purses.
These two tops (shirt and tank top) was pretty much what I expected. I knew it was going to look more like a tunic on me than an actual shirt and tank top. It looks almost exactly like the one on the model.

I'm actually pretty satisfied with this one.


no flash
The purse on the other hand was NOT what I expected. I really didn't think it would be that reddish in person. The picture I took of it doesn't even look like how it does in person. All of the pictures I saw on YesStyle was of a caramel-like color. Maybe it's the lighting in my room but I dunno. It looks really red brown to me in person than just a caramel brown.
Yea, the material for it isn't so good either. Look, the stitching where it's supposed to be adjustable is coming off. I don't know if I should return it/exchange it or not. I was just trying to adjust it and the material of the purse was so flimsy and stretchy that the stitching just just came right off. I'm kinda pissed. NONE of the purses I got that were brand new ever had the stitching come off from adjusted the strap. This is the most expensive purse I got too so I expected it to be more durable than my other purses.

Also, when I opened up the bag that had this purse in it, it smelled SO BAD. It smelled like fish and something else combined. I don't even know how to really describe the smell. It was just awful.

For one of my sister's purses, the stitching was kinda coming off, too.

This is my first time ordering from YesStyle and I was really hoping it will be a nice experience. Now I don't even really know if I should purchase from them again. :(
