Hey guys

Was going to spend some time today and maybe do a bit more on my blog and add pics to my bento book, but domestic things have to be done. Including laundry. :(

But never mind, for when I finish I want to make tomorrow's bento (in the new box; the ice cream set came on Friday!) and I will try and take a photo.

Really wanted to spend today cleaning out my closet and make way for some new winter clothes on my day off (ANZAC Day holiday here!) and re arrange my bedroom.

So I guess today is a shout out for all those that are spending the day doing household chores.

New Bento Oops

Lol I said I bought new a new bento but didn't attach a pic. Doh!

New Bento and Purikura

Hey Guys

Been really lazy as of late when it comes to updating ANYTHING but with the return of school means that I have to continue work. Been having a bit of slump week in terms of mood but the sunshine of this morning (albeit there are a few grey clouds lurking in my perfect blue sky but it shouldn't rain til later) and a good night sleep does wonders. Well, that and discovering a really cute new site to use all my printer's ink with lol.

Purikura! The art of taking photos and putting new, cute frames, 'stickers', asian phrases etc onto the picture to make it animated (excuse the pun, lol) and then printing it off. In Japan they have booths where you take the pics and then have a big screen to change them with. I think they also have sticky backs. But anyway, here in country-ish (not big enough to call a 'suburb of sorts' but not small enough to call inbred and middle of nowhere) Australia that doesn't exist. Hell we don't even have normal photo booths here. Sigh.

But this site is free and you don't have to sign up for an account if you don't want to (excuse the sales tone of my voice. I get like this when I discuss hair heat stylers or anything skin care.I'm a little ashamed of this lol) but unless you crop it out, there will be a small banner at the bottom of the 'done' pic for advertising purposes.

I did my 1st purikura pic to my facebook profile pic last night. Ta - Da!

Since I would be using it for my facebook, I didn't go too OTT with stickers and deco.

OOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOH! I also bought a new bento today. It's been so long since I've been bothered to make cute bento or cute nails. Getting back into the swing of things!

Anyway, my battery is about to die and it's cereal-for-lunch o'clock.

Shopping Weekend Buys

So excuse my lazyness over not taking pics sooner. I still can't find my camera batteries and NO, they're not in my camera. Scarily enough that's happened where I thought I had list my batteries and they were in my camera the whole time; I was pressing the wrong button to try and turn it on. Sigh, but anyway.

The last weekend was filled with shopping (and I also went and saw Kick Ass, more on that later) and while I am now completely broke and it's good to see that there are things in my wardrobe and on my desk to compensate. Moving On!

Ok, now I'm still new to this whole Blogger thing, so I haven't quite figured out how to do typing directly above pics so instead will just make a list up here of each thing. Oh and the clothes were taken in the morning and everything else at night. I just used the camera that's integrated with my laptop so excuse the quality!

1. Top from Supre. French-themed fashion is everywhere lately and this top is really cute. Not exactly winter-y, but meh.
2. My laptop! Got woken up on Thursday morning by my Mum who said
"Wake up and get dressed, we have errands to do and we might look about getting your laptop." Um, hell yes?
3. GHDs. I actually got these for my 17th (22nd of March) but this is the 1st time that I've documented their existence.
4. Earring from eQUIP. These were on sale at $7 off and are so cute! I don't really like wearing dangly earrings but I'm going to try these at least once.
5. Tofu plush mobile phone holder. Another item I haven't been able to document. Have had this for a few weeks and it looks really cute next to my HK bedside table.
6. Assorted gum from the international food store in town. I don't really like gum but these were really cute to not spend a few dollars. Don't want to open them!
7. My limited edition Hanari Tofu Reindeer Plush. This still has tags and was only sold in Japan. An eBay find a few weeks back.
8. VS Sasson hair dryer on sale at Harvey Norman. I've never owned my own so thought it was time to break the bank and spend (GASP! SHOCK! HORROR!) $19 on a new one. It's actually really good.
9. Hello Kitty head bands! I didn't actually buy these but when we got home from shopping my Mum pulled them from her bag. I haven't worn them yet but they're so cute!
10. Supre A'Line Cardi. Supre was having a big 20% off everything sale so I bought a few newpieces from there. This was meant to show my Mum that I at least TRIED to buy winter clothes. Try being the key word here. lol
11. French tee from Cotton On. I originally saw this in an issue of Dolly or Girlfriend for $24.95. I bought it on sale at $5.
12. Purple top frpm Target. I haven't really got anything to say about this one, except that it has a cool design and fabric contrast.
13. National Compliments Day (which is today!) top from Supre. I wore this on the second shopping trip and felt like such a Supre addict when I went up to the counter to pay for the second wave of clothes (the rack that they were on was right next to the counter and the girl that served me was wearing one too. Love those girls.).
14. Faux necklace top by Free Fusion at Target. I don't normally fit into their clothes but this top fit like a charm. On sale too.
15. Oversized Bow Top again, from Supre. And, yet again, the salesgirl was wearing this top and she looked really cute, so hence, it was run and grab while she bagged up my other items.

New laptop! I'm typing on it now!
And I think that now that's it for the shopping part. On Sunday the family went out to lunch at Sizzlers and we went and saw the new movie Kick Ass, which has Aaron Johnson from the Angus movie and McLovin from Superbad in it. A lot of parent groups have slammed the movie cause the main girl that swears and kills people in awesome ways is 11 and that it's advertised for kids. As you will find yourself aware of as of now, I hold a very high level of contempt for any parent and religious group that bitches about the ratings system and of violence in movie and (in particular, this annoys me the most) video games. It's a very simple case of 'Don't like it? Don't let your kids play/ see it." Pretty damn simple really.

I remember that there was so much hooha when they released Condemned 2:Bloodshot. I've played the game and while it has graphics that are photo-realistic and it's in first person, people seem to forget that it was violent and bloody FOR A REASON. In the game your in the 'condemned' parts of the city where people are killing everyone around them and when you're going a tad insane yourself and have no real weapon to defend yourself, natural human reaction is to just find whatever you can and stay alive. Your tracking a serial killer!

But enough of that now. I hope you guys enjoy the rest of your day while I go and play Gears of War 2 on the new TV. Another game named and shamed by parents for it's MA15+ content. Guess I'm going to Hell then. Better see if I can reserve a front seat ticket.

talk to you later

Just a quick update before I hit the hay.

Went out today to do a bit more shopping (even after the big expedition that was had yesterday; pics of my purchases and all that jazz will be up when I find my camera batteries! :( ) and apart from buying a few more tops and a cute PRINCESS lanyard, I also scored myself a new desk.

While it isn't the best color (I wanted white but they only had one colour!) it is brand new and semi-completed. It's 1:30am here and I only just got out of the shower. If I look to my right I can see the left over pieces of it on my floor that will be assembled into the hutch that will go on top tomorrow.

Just me and my blue Hello Kitty sheets tonight as I'm sitting up in bed (makeup-less face in all it's glory) nursing a bleeding finger that I just slammed into my window (its bleeding from under the nail. Owie) and bid you all good night. Lots of assignment work and the like that need to be completed before school resumes on Tuesday. Let's hope for the best!

love you lovelies

Oops! I almost forgot to include a quick pic!

Tokyo Trip Plans

Hi All, me again.

Well, since my last post, things that are good and things that are bad have happened in my world. I won't be going into specifics, but its not looking good. But back to the title of this post.

Tokyo Trip Plans!
I've always wanted to go there ever since I learnt it was where Hello Kitty came from. Well, I got a suprise yesterday from my Mum; she said that if I saved up to pay my way there, she would pay for a return ticket to Tokyo when I turn 18. SO HAPPY! I really want to stay 16 odd days, but I'm going to aim to save enough for a week and any extra that I can save on top of it will simply go to a shopping fund.

After just reading the last blog post from Foki (she missed her flight! But she's back on her way to Sweden now) and all those beautiful images of Tokyo it's only made me want to turn everything into a reality.

Grr. I'm trying to call my best friend Elfy so that I can finalise our plans for Friday, which involves lots of shopping! I love shopping but she's a recenssionista and I'm a bit impulsive, so it's always good to get another person's opinion in case I decide on something thats just unnecessary. But she isn't answering her phone! I know it's a tad early but she is meant to be here in a few hours! Cry and sob loudly.

Anyway, I really need to get out of bed and grab a cup of tea so that I'm fully awake for when Elfy gets here.

love you lovelies!
