WISHLIST ♥ My Pretty Little StyleWe Wishlist ♥

Monday, August 22, 2016

I thought it was way past time for a wishlist! Yay! I squeezed in some time to put this together after I found this gorgeous website called StyleWe.com. OMG, they have so many beautiful dresses, purses, skirts and the like...I could hardly choose my favorites there were so many I wanted to include. Here are a few that caught my eye....and yep, there's lots and lots of pink in this wishlist. I really need to add more pink pretties to my closet. I hardly have any! They're all very fun, girly, classic and sweet....like me! *dimple*

Don't you just love them all?!!! Those purses are absolutely adorable, oui? Cats and pineapples!!!! ugh...so cute! If I had to choose what to get first I'd probably go for #6 and #5 first! Utter prettiness....what do you think? Do you like any of these pretty dresses? I'm off to go drool over more of their pretty fashions...you can check them out at StyleWe.com. *wink wink* 

Have a beautiful day!!!



MUSIC ♥ Bananarama - I'm Your Venus ♥

Friday, August 19, 2016

Summer is almost over...I'm so not ready. *pout* I love all this lovely hot weather....though it could be a tad bit cooler on some days. You could cook an egg on the sidewalk it's soo hot! I went outside for literally five minutes in the direct sun and immediately became covered in sweat! I wasn't even doing anything to work up a sweat! Whew!! 

So it's time to start thinking about Halloween! I love Halloween...all the spooky stories, getting dressed up (which I wish I did more of!), and coming up with a spooky beauty collection for our beauty brand. This year we're going to create a new one called "Witchy Things" which was partly inspired from the Netflix TV show "Stranger Things" and my love for all things witchy! Man, I can't wait for the next season of "Stranger Things"...it was SO good, wasn't it? and I do love Winona Ryder. 

I'm currently working on our Halloween collection "Witchy Things" right now... a Custom Beauty Bar where you can pick a scent and product and make up a puuuurfecty witchy product just for you. *wink* We're going to have one product called "The Blood of Thine Enemies" which is a face mask with goodies like clay, sandalwood powder, rose absolute and more! Such a cool name, right? Spooky and totally got a Game of Thrones theme going on there. Bwahahaha!!! 

Here's a fun little Halloween tidbit...did you know black cats weren't really the first familiars of witches? It was the tabby! My Zeus is a tabby and my first kitty I ever had. He actually found me by ending up at my front door so does that make him my familiar? lol.. Tabbies also are considered to have magical powers! I definitely think he's magical! 

For black cats, I think it was around the Medieval Period when people started associating them with witches because of their black color and the fact that they like to roam out at night. Some might say they're bad luck...but I know that isn't true! They're good luck and SO awesome! I have a new kitten James, and he's all black and just as magical and sweet as my Zeus. You can see sweet photos of them and all my other sweet babies which are all Japanese Bobtails! (except of course Zeus!) and in Japan are considered extremely good luck, up on my instagram.  Feel free to follow along...there's always photos of kitties, fashion, our beauty products and lots of inspo going on. *wink*

So to help celebrate Fall and Halloween I decided to feature this song by Bananarama - Venus. Believe it or not this is the first time I've seen the video of this song! and OMG,it's perfect. Devils, Witches, Goddesses, French Femme Fatales and Aphrodite!!! It's actually the inspiration behind a new product coming to our "Witchy Things" Collection. A "Crushing on You" Fizzing Bath Powder called "I'm Your Venus" that will be hot pink with rose buds, epsom salts, soothing baking soda and moisturizing oils that smell like cotton candy, vanilla and caramel. You just toss it in your tub, watch it fizz and bloom in the water making it smell & look amazing! Oh, yeah, baby she's got it! *wink*

LIFESTYLE ♥ Meet my New Kitty James! ♥

Thursday, August 11, 2016

Hey beauties, hope you're having a super sweet week. I thought I'd take the time to introduce you to my kitty. I know I said I wouldn't get another kitty...I mean, four was my limit. Whew! I only ever wanted one pet, cat or dog, I've love them with all my heart but here I am now, with five kitties!! I can't help it...my heart is just way too big and squishy for it's own good. I have to admit I've always wanted a black kitty. I never understood why some people didn't like black kitties. I think they're gorgeous and super special. And James here is all that and more! 

I decided to call this sweetheart James well, because he looks like a James to me. lol... but also the name James has some good feelings attached to it. James was the name of the first boy I had a crush on...tall, dark and handsome. haha, James here has the dark and handsome in his favor even if he is a tad short. I also named him after James Dean..one of my favorite actors and James T. Kirk...because I'm such a Trekkie! Take a peek at all the cuteness in the photos below!   

Look at that adorable face! He really is such a sweetheart too.
Within one week he was fast friends with all the other kitties, especially Zeus!

Holding hands. He actually did his first love dance after I took this photo! He's just like Zeus in that he is very, very affectionate & loves to do them as much as he does.Look! he's waving to you below! ha! Awww, kitten paws.  

Fast asleep on my pretty rose bedspread. He's SO fluffy and soft too. 

James is a pretty special kitty (I think all my kitties are special by the way! *wink*) He's half the size of all my kitties but act's like he's bigger and boy! can he jump! He follows Zeus around everywhere and loves to play with his tail...it's a constant source of delight for me! And the sounds he makes...cute little warble sounds. I'm so glad this little cupcake is a part of my kitty squad now. 

You can expect to see lots more photos of him and all my other kitties up on my InstagramFollow along if you're not already. *wink wink*


REVIEW ♥ Bamboo Franck Olivier Perfume ♥

Monday, August 8, 2016

I'm spending my day sniffing perfume and taking pretty photos of this even prettier bottle. I got the chance to try this beautiful perfume below called Bamboo by Franck Olivier from the wonderful store The Fragrance Outlet. And what a store it is...there are lots of pretty perfumes I want to get from them...there's this Barbie one I have my eye on and a Cinderella one too! heehee..I'm a sucker for whimsy and girlish pretties.

How pretty is the bottle? 
There's a Bamboo embossed on the bottle itself and the 
perfume is light pink!! So pretty...totally vanity worthy. 

It smells sooo light, fresh and green. 
Definitely a scent that I think most peeps would love.
You only need one spritz to smell oh, so pretty! This bottle will 
last a long time so it's such a great value in my opinion. 
I really love it and apparently so do my cats! 
They were sniffing me like crazy and the bottle too. lol..

Top notes: Blackcurrant, violet leaves, ivy
Middle notes: Lily, rose, ylang-ylang, freesia
Base notes: Musk, cedar and vetiver

I couldn't resist taking some snaps with some of my current fav products and my new phone case...it's sooo magical! Holographic glitter and unicorns? Yes, please! I got mine on ebay because I couldn't find one for compatible for my phone but you can get it from SkinnyDip London here. I LOOOOOVE that store. I want everything there. 

That gold jar is my new eye concealer from Skin Food in Korea called Salmon Dark Eye Concealer in Blooming #1. Yes, I know...I'm addicted to Korean Cosmetics and I LOVE it! Super moisturizing and creamy. It really brightens my eyes up. 

And next to it, is my Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color in Blueberry Cheesecake. Love that cute jar so much. I use it mostly for blush. I call it my fairytale blush because it reminds me of Snow White's blush. *dimple*

Oooooh...and that Innisfree Pink Nail polish...the PERFECT shade of pastel pink. 
I need to get another bottle ASAP. 

You can really see the embossed Bamboo in the photo on my Franck Olivier Perfume Bottle. I love how the perfume is pink. Aesthetics, peeps! Aesthetics. *wink* 

Below that is my Cat Winks Pressed Powder Compact (It's empty.... (whispers)....ha!!) but that won't stop me from taking photos of this cute compact. Meow!! I need to get more. And next to that is my go to face makeup. I don't like heavy makeup so I just use a tinted moisturizer and I've been using Radiant Sonia Kashuk in Fair for quite awhile now. Pretty addicted to it.   

And below a new love...my NYC Matte Lip Creme in Cannes. I absolutely love this shade...like a rose chocolate...never thought anything other than pink and now red would look good on me...but this is super...super pretty! 

 You peeps need to try this perfume or at least take a looksie at The Fragrance Outlet.  They've got SO many perfumes to check out. What do you think of this perfume? Have you tried it before or gone shopping at The Fragrance Outlet? Let me know if you did and what goodies you got! Love to you!!

MUSIC ♥ I'm Feeling Love for August ♥

Tuesday, August 2, 2016

August sure got here fast, didn't it? I feel like things have gotten a little slow on the beauty front...I'm going to need to hustle in the beauty lab to get things revving again. Maybe some new potions...I know I want to get a new website...but I can't seem to decide on a template. sigh... So many to choose from!! I'm very picky, all right. hahaha...

Anyway, I've got a lot of great ideas for new potions that I'll be working on and hopefully they'll be coming soon to our shop. Maybe some fizzy crushed bath soaks, bath melts, new cleansers and facial soap bars and masks and more!! I'm so excited! If you have any suggestions on products or scents you want to see in our shop, comment below. Until then, let's enjoy some sweet music and let's welcome August!!

REVIEW ♥ Japan Fun Box ♥

Monday, August 1, 2016

I'm a big fan of candies and foods from Japan. They're so unique and always so tasty so I squealed in excitement when I got to try this fun little box called Japan Fun Box. Look how cute their shipping box is. You can choose between three different sized boxes ranging from $15 to $50...Mini, Original and Family. Mine is the mini which comes with 5-7 yummies to nibble on. They even have free shipping worldwide and who doesn't love free shipping? 

It comes with an info card that tells you all about the snacks and treats inside the box you get as well as the Original box too. I kind of got really excited when I saw all the listings on there, especially the Almond Pocky (I LOVE Pocky!) haha, and then realized that my goodies only consisted of the left side and there was no Pocky. *sad pout* But there were some delicious treats in there that I couldn't wait to eat! Look below! That's everything that came in the box.

These are potato chips that taste like pepperoni pizza! and they really do!! 
I quite enjoyed these and they were one of my favorites in the box. 

These next up are my favorite of all the treats. They're called Pretz Tomato Taste. They're like bread sticks and pretzels and literally have a tomato-y? taste to them. So good!

 Grape whistle candy! I've had these before in strawberry and they're so good. They even come with a little toy in a box on the bottom and you can actually whistle with it by blowing through the hole in the candy. I kid you not! hahaha...

These were interesting. Not really my favorite. I didn't like the flavor. They're called Ume-pachi and it crackles and bursts in your mouth with a sour plum taste. 

No, this is not a cheese stick but it kind of looks like it, doesn't it? Ha!  It's called Shuwabo. a soft candy that tastes like lemon and orange and it has bubbly powder on the inside that when combined with the candy creates a coke flavor. Pretty neat. I liked it. 

And finally, something chocolaty! These are called Alfort which are bite sized biscuits covered in milk chocolate. Mine came melted partially but that didn't stop me from eating it! These were yummy! I love the ship embossed on the chocolate. 

So what do you think? Anything you think you'd like? You should totally check out their website and see if you might want to try one of their cute little boxes. I'm hooked!! *wink*
