Happy Holidays!// new hair color + various snaps

Hope everyone's spending a lovely day/time with their family and other loved ones!

I'll just quickly post some instagram pics and other things just because I have some time before a Christmas party my family is all going to!

My friend Kyleigh puts up with my butt-ness and my hair. It's too too much HAHA but now she lifted the roots and gave me a much warmer brown so I can wear it more easily.

Be sure to check it out!

And some snaps

I wanted something bright/fun to keep from looking winter dreary

which is also why I dyed my hair lighter for the winter months /rebel

New boots from Black Friday shopping in the states!
from: BASS
they're [so far] waterproof and very few scuff marks! So hardy
and perfect for this dreary sometimes snowy weather.

Mikebb bought me these earrings and they are SO fun. I think I'll wear them to the Christmas party.
We joked about me being house Baratheon [from Game of Thrones]
they're a bit heavy but not to the point of irritation.
WHATEVER I love them and I'd wear them to the ends of the earth.

gradient nails going from peach to pink tips

PINK leggings by Victoria's Secret Pink
a little unsure of how the size will stay true because I bought an XS, the smallest size there is and it's a bit loose on my ankles/calves.

Love the studded detail on the back and not too ostentatious like some of the other designs/patterns. No offense
Super comfy and light material so I can work out in the winter [WHEN I HAVE TIME]

Our friends [Mike's and my] got a new dog from the shelter! He is 4 years old and a pure bred [perhaps] Dachshund who is just the sweetest thing. He's quiet and loves giving kisses and chewing on his toys and such a good lapdog. As the pic demonstrates.
Best wishes to him in his new forever home with his new loving parents.
They do dote on him~

A few of my friends have flown in from other parts of Canada to come back home and I can't wait to see them all again and hang out!
I missed my ladies ;_______;

HAVE A MERRY AND SAFE TIME. Don't drink too much nog/rum and drive and all that! IF YOU MUST MISTLETOE, MAKE SURE NO ONE IS SICK!

New haircut // + LUSH golden wonder bath bomb review// + I.fairy kirei grey/gray review

new haircut/blunt bangs!!

Whoaa sorry readers I've been busy.

ALA aka Anime Los Angeles is coming up and I'm super stressed getting ready for it and also work is busy too since it's Christmas soon and everyone wants to buy chocolates.

For ALA I'll be making Shego from Kim Possible, Zatanna from Young Justice season 2, and two more cosplays that are already done.

Since Mike is cosplaying with me I have to make Drakken and Nightwing too hahaha

Here's some progress pics though!

I bought a base suit from eBay as well as the base mask. But as you can see it's still a lot of work to do yet.

I've only been taking progress pics occasionally.
And all of Mike ahahahaha

Anyways onto the reviews:

LUSH advertises this as a really fun bath bomb WHICH IT WAS OMG

Mike bought this for me as a little gift to cheer me up when I was even more stressed out
and then I used it and bought another one because I loved it so much.

When you drop it in, it starts out as gold and transitions to blue AND THEN YELLOW STARS COME OUT. They dissolve over time which is handy.

And so the bath water turns blue, but there was golden swirls of very fine fine gold dust swirling. So everytime you move, the water glimmers.

It's gorgeous and a really great way to pamper yourself.


And finally onto my kirei greys!

I bought them from iszocirclelens and I love them!
They came faster than my other package from Lensvillage which I ordered first. So they're quite good!

Came in bubble wrap envelope and with these super cute lens cases! I can't wait to use them hahahaha. And even with a keychain. Not sure how practical it is but it helps me differentiate further from my other cases.


And finally.

Some close up shots with flash/without flash.

The limbal ring is decently thick and keeps it from looking too unnatural. 
The enlargement is really good but not freaky. I feel like I can get away with wearing these with minimal makeup too.

The blending from brown to grey is really really nice. It only looks blended from far away though. 
Any closer and you can see the pupil opening.

Super duper comfy and exactly what I needed color wise. 

Not too dark but not super light either. 
I wanted a nice in between grey and that's what I got.

Also I reviewed these since there aren't nearly enough good reviews of the kirei's on dark eyes, especially this color. And since my eyes are a very very dark brown, this is as dark as they're going to get on eyes.

That's it for now. Hope everyone is having happy holidays and some quality family/friends time!

Until next time.
I leave this photo of my home area. It's snowing like crazy recently.
