Ebay Order Surpriseeeeee!

Hello~ If you're reading this and you've been here before then thank you for sticking around and giving me the motivation to keep this blog going. I seriously love each and every one of you ❤

If you're new, then welcome! Don't worry, I love you just as much as returning readers ❤

Okay, now onto the good stuff: the wait is over! My package came in the mail about 2 or 3 days ago but no one was home to answer the door when the delivery guy came, so I had to wait for my mom to get it at the post office. I bet you're all dying to know what I got. (who am I kidding, no one reads this blog lol jk)

I got... *insert drumroll here*... a pair of lace up leopard-print wedge heels.. WITH WINGS!!! Ahhhhh they're so cuteeeeeeee!

Aren't they just the cutest things in the world? I got them from a seller called: 2009skylight who actually delayed my shipping because of defects on the shoes they already had ready to ship for me. They emailed me to ask if I'd like to wait or get a refund and, well obviously, I waited. But I was super impressed with their consideration and communication. Definitely look them up! I'd totally consider buying from them again.

One thing I did note though, was that they smelled really bad when I took them out of the box. It smelled heavily like... a paint smell or something. I think it's the material on the inside of the shoe; it's sort of a fuzzy suede-like material. I dunno, but I put them by an open window for a few hours to air out and they're okay now.

Comfort-wise they're not bad, but I did slip in some insoles because I have flat feet that get tired easy Q__Q Overall I do absolutely love them to death ❤❤❤❤❤

Lately I've been experimenting with my makeup, I've been trying looks with no eyeliner because let's face it, I'm the laziest person in the world. I liked how it turned out (please excuse my crappy non-edited lighting):

I thought this photo turned out so cool
the way the background looks and all
with no editing, although I look derp.

Here's a closeup, not that you can see anything anyways
(blackberry camera doesn't do it justice... ever.)

Also I've been bored with League recently. So I started playing some old champs I haven't touched in a while like Leona, Katarina, Kayle, Evelynn, and a bunch of other ones I don't remember at the moment. I know I said I played Eve. So I bet you're wondering what I did.... (By the way, I'm not claiming to be mlg pro and my posts will never in any way be a guide of any sort. I just like to explain the things I do which are based on my own personal playstyle and if you like what you read, by all means try it out, but I don't guarantee it'll work exactly the same for you.)

First off, I have to say, Eve is so fun to play (not trolling, totally being serious.) She's not my favourite character, but there hasn't been a time where I didn't enjoyed playing her (being honest here, I sometimes have more fun playing Eve than any of my actual favourite champs). I always played her AD but after watching RusPiglets play her AP all the time I thought I'd give it a shot. 

I don't like the idea of taking the ranged carry out of the picture (ruspiglets goes bot with support), so I always play Eve bot lane as the support (AD or AP) Don't flame me yet. Let me explain how this works:

The way I used to do it (AD way) was take flash + smite for summoners, and start with regrowth + 1hp pot. Then I'd go bot lane with the carry and smite like, 1 minion every wave (let's be real, they're not going to last hit ALL those minions okay? So don't be all "HERP DERP Y U STEAL CARRY FARM")

Hopefully jungle comes to help gank your lane. If they're successful, and you get a kill/assist, you can shop. If not, just keep trying to slowly farm up enough for philo and boots and 1 ward. (<--- this is super important because your carry lacks a warding support so you have to make sure you cover for them so that they can farm safely). Pop a ward by drag and now the fun begins. You go around ganking other lanes or counter jungling for a bit. The best part is you can always go back bot for a gank/farm and securing dragon/baron is a lot easier with 2 smites. I build whatever I feel like but it usually looks like this: 

Philo > boots > wriggles > triforce (FOR TONS OF DAMAGE LUL) > G.A

Again, this isn't really a formal guide or anything so don't hate okay? Lots of love only please kthx.  ❤

Now the AP way is slightly different, in a sense that you focus more about annoying the absolute crap out of the enemy carry. Also I take ignite + flash instead of smite. I start with dorans ring and get stealth first (obviously). At level 2 get your E (ravage) and start being as annoying as possible with your stealth + e combo. If you have AP runes, you should do some really good chunking which will hopefully lead to an easy kill via gank or if you and your lane partner can get the kill on your own that's great too.

Item-wise I build the same as RusPiglets. Rushing stacks (because I can), grab Rylai's and then you know, standard AP stuff.

Here's a few screenshots just to show you I don't fail horribly:

The Yi ragequit lol.

I played her AP this game

Stats for the previous screenie.
So yeah, I just wanted to share that with all of you. Thanks again for reading. I hope to make another post really soon ❤ Bye for now~

Forever21 Package Arrived & HUGE update~!

It's been quite the wait, but my Forever21 order finally came in! I'm currently still waiting on my ebay order but I thought I'd make a separate post for that later because I've been dying to share what I got from f21. Also I wanted to take this time to massively update my blog since I've been MIA for so long QQ. I did however get the time to make a watermark for my pictures. Tell me what you think!

First off, happy late Valentine's day! I personally never really liked Valentine's day because I think it's gotten way too commercial. (Besides, I don't need a specific day of the year for my man to make an effort to show his affections when he does it every single day of the year regardless.)

Here's my makeup as well as what I wore for Valentine's~

I made my bottom lashes myself by using tweezers
 to re-position the fibers :3

But enough of that, now we get to the good stuff: The Haul.

I'm a super neat freak so I like to have everything in my room organized in drawers, shelves, boxes, etc. I was looking at my jewelry and I was bothered by how I kept it all in an "organized mess." I've always liked the jewelry displays at Forever21 so I decided to hop onto their website and do a little browsing. To my surprise they actually sold jewelry stands! I picked out a white/cream colored 3 tier stand for just around $15~ They offer free shipping for orders over $60 so I browsed around for some cute accessories while I was at it. I'll be posting the name of each item as well as the price [in Canadian $'s] underneath the picture in case you're interested  (*^▽^*)

Here's what I got:

"Floral Jewelry Stand" - $15.80

"Rose Bracelet" - $6.80

"Roses & Rhinestone Ring" - $5.80

"Twist & Rhinestones Bangles" - $6.80

"Rose Heart Necklace" - $5.80

"Pearlescent Hearts Earrings" - $4.80

"Two Layered Beaded Necklace" - $5.80

"Leaf Accent Necklace" - $5.80

"Scalloped Filligree Earrings" - $3.80
I'm LOVING these

Here's what the stand looks like with
all my jewelry hanging off it~
I'm super pleased with f21's fast shipping and everything I ordered came in perfect condition. The scalloped earrings are definitely my favorite piece in this order (≧∇≦)♥ 

My aunt, sister and uncle share the same birthday, but every year my aunt throws a huge party for herself on the actual day of and we all have to go. I don't really mind, but sometimes it gets a little repetitive and boring, especially since there are a lot of people there that I haven't met before. This is what I wore that night~

I've been dying to wear this dress since
I bought it from HK.

A closeup of my hair. Super simple braids
on the side, bobby pinned back~

Finally, I wanted to post an update on my makeup. I've been trying to get into wearing false lower lashes but I could never really get them to work with me. I saw a few youtube videos on re-designing your false lashes by using tweezers to re-position the hair fibers and here's what I ended up getting:

I absolutely love the results  They look so natural but at the same time they add so much more emphasis and drama to my lower lashes. I could definitely get used to this look (´・ω・`)

Anyways, thanks again for reading! Until next time~

Message from Forever21 and Ebay; Valentine's Nails (´・ω・)

Why hello (insert emotionless Dyrus impersonation here)

I'm pleased to announce that my ebay and forever21 orders have been updated! Here are the emails I got from both (you can click the pictures for a bigger image):

Email from Ebay Seller

Email from Forever21
I emailed the ebay seller back saying I would wait for my order so that will take a little longer than I planned. Oh well, it's good to know that they value their customers so much.

Not a lot going on right now I guess. I did do my nails, hoping they would last until Valentine's. I used Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear polish in Strobe Light then decorated them with some nail stickers my friend had bought me on her trip to Hong Kong a few years ago. Originally I bought this polish for a New Year's design but I never got around to using it so I was really anxious to try it out. I think it turned out pretty well  (^_^;) 

Anyways that's it, just wanted to give a brief update to keep this blog alive~ Thanks for reading  >‿‿◕

Update! ft. Gamer Post --- Ziggs, the Hexplosives Expert

Hello! So I haven't made a post in a while but don't worry, I didn't abandon this blog yet~ I was studying for some midterms so I didn't really have the time to post anything. I'm super excited for an upcoming post (which will hopefully be sometime within the next week) because I just put an order in on ebay and forever21 yesterday! I've always wanted to do haul blogs but since no one really followed me, I never did. Now that I have somewhat of a interest in keeping this blog alive, hopefully I can draw in more readers and make those posts matter ^^

On another note, for those League of Legends lovers out there who happen upon my blog, I bought Ziggs the day after he came out. I have to say, I'm absolutely loving him. He might be my new favourite caster in mid. Here's how I did in the first game I played with him:
Click for a bigger picture~
For that game, I messed around with his build. As you can see it was a really long game, but I had Mejai's and actually a second Deathcap before the game ended with the items you see in the screenshot. For people that are interested in my thoughts on this champ, here's a summary:

High damage ult (has decent range)
Relatively high ratios on his skills
Great autoattack animation (easy last hitting with his passive)
Good harass and utility in his kit
Relatively low CD's (especially on Q)

Can be mana hungry in lane (kind of a blue buff hog)
Skills are fairly easy to dodge, especially his ult
Not exactly a reliable escape with Satchel Charge

I haven't really played him enough to really judge him, but my guess is that he'll probably be nerfed in an upcoming patch. For those wondering ---I like to build dorans/boots x3pots to start and go either doran stacking (I stop at 2 but you can do 3 if you need it I guess) into deathcap, or rush tear and build rylai's. Mejai's is for the lulz and if you have to skill to keep them stacks going then obviously it'll pay off later. (Keep in mind your ult gives mad assists.) I always build at least 1 doran's though because he's super squishy like most casters. Also I like to pick rylai's over RoA because of the slow + Hexplosive Minefield = lulz, but that's just me (makes it easier to land your Q).

Anyways this post is getting sort of long and I'm sidetracking into territory I don't really want to get into sooooo I'm wrapping this up for now~ Stay tuned for my super exciting haul post! Thanks for reading :3
