Baby Powder Fragrances/Lotions

A while back, I purchased a Tony Moly Hello Bunny Perfume Bar in Bebe Powder. Yes!! I've found my dream scent!!!!:O So, I decided to buy a few more baby powder scented products, as Korean beauty brands tend to have quite a few.

Here's my list of amazingly delicious baby powder scented products!

1. Holika Holika Holi Holi Magic Drop - Make Me Pure
A little bit fruity, a lot baby powder, very nice scent from Holika Holika. Described as ''Elegance sandlewood, Vanilla fragrance wafts through the air with a delicate mild white musk fragrance. This pure white woody musk fragrance changes you into the innocent girl like a baby.'' It's true. A definite one to try if you like the powdery scent.

2. Intimissimi EDT
This perfume is amazing. Has the staying power of a EDP. It smells just like pure talc, or Johnsons baby powder, but has a really subtle hint of citrus which makes it a bit more grown up. This is my personal favourite; I'm sad to say it's no longer in production. A look on eBay should find you some bottles if you are interested!

3. Etude House Cotton Snow/Baby Bubble
I bought Baby Bubble all-over spray a while back, and I loved it, but the staying power wasn't great. So, I thought i'd continue looking for a similar product. Etude House do this Petit Bijou range, which smells AMAZING, and the lotion especially is very strong and will leave your skin smelling like fresh, clean baby powder all day. The EDT however, is difficult to get a hold of, and I am still yet to find the cotton snow variety. :( If you know where I can find one, let me know.

4. Hello Kitty Tender Powder EDT and Cake Fragrance
Not much to say about this one, it's not my favorite - the EDT is expensive for it's size (it's TINY), and it smells super strong when you first apply it. It's hard to apply from the bottle, but it does smell good a few minutes after you put it on, and it lasts.

The cake fragrance is the same... you have to put it on your finger to apply it, so the thing that smells most is your finger.

That aside, it does smell really good, and I still recommend it to fans of a baby powder scent. Also, the EDT is perfect handbag size, or great for a gift.

5. Etude House Missing U Fairy Penguin hand cream
Lovely, creamy, baby powder scent. Lasts a good while, and absorbs into the skin quickly. I think it's more of a perfume product than a cream for seriously dry skin though!

So, that's it. Would like to know your favorites too.

My Beauty Diary Strawberry Yogurt Mask Review

I'ma huge fan of sheet masks, and I have used many, many vitamin C, caviar, snail and hyaluronic acid masks in my time. They have all worked pretty well, but as I'm all for sweet scents, I really wanted to try this My Beauty Diary strawberry yogurt mask. Well, I really love these masks. they smell exactly like strawberry yogurt.

I bought mine on eBay from a UK seller. They were delivered in 1 day. Very impressed. They were #11 for 10 masks. Also impressive. I know they sell these in China Town in London too, but they are probably much more pricey.

They have a lot of essence on them (they are heavy and very wet) but this is nice as it cools down the skin and leaves you feeling instantly refreshed.

Weirdly, my skin around my nose and mouth felt a little stingy, something I have never experienced from the other masks. I will add that I am currently sick and my skin is very dry at the moment, and it's snowing out; i think my skin is just having a hard time. I don't blame the mask, I blame me.

I left it on for around 20 minutes, this seemed perfect. There should be - unless your skin is very thirsty - quite a lot of residue left over from this mask, so you can wipe your body with what's left over to get a nice hint of strawberry all over. My face is now fully refreshed, bright, smooth, soft and to top it all I smell like a strawberry. I want to eat my own face.

Tip: don't wash off! It's fine to leave on. Oh, and one last thing - my only negative point too. The mask is waaaay too big for my face; but I have a very small face. So the chin kind of hangs off and I was eating the nose section. But whatever, it tasted good. However, this definitely wont affect everyone.

So; to round up:

  • Great value for money
  • Very refreshing and softening
  • Really nice scent
  • Instantly brightens your skin
  • Size won't fit everyone - but who cares
  • Plenty of essence on the mask

During my Google image search I found this line of masks from MBD - I have GOT TO TRY THESE NEXT!!! Stay tuned.

GIRL'S DAY Yura Blonde Hair - Kpop Blondes!

Just read something about this. I thought her hair looked cute blonde (although I do have a thing about people with naturally black hair leaving it dark - because it's beautiful dark) ut anyway, it makes her look unusual and cool, it's a shade of blonde I haven't seen much of - it looks quite's nice.

I looooooooove this hairstyle....

Then I found A Pink's Eunji, (I don't know much about k-pop, so this is all quite new to me!) and she has very cute hair too....

Just wanted to include some pictures of CL from 2NE1 as I really love her whole look and general being alive.

Dara Blonde?.........Hmm

That's all for now! Go Blonde!!!...Or not.

Braided Hair/More Hair Scans!

Just some more cute hair scans, I found some braided styles but it's a hard task!.. Mostly from Popteen, I think!

CUTE and CHEAP Japanese Online Fashion Site Links!

I just got back from Osaka and I was obsessed with the amount of amazing fashion (especially coats and jackets) while I was there. I geekily wrote down the names of all the stores I visited.. but was watching my money too much to buy anything at the time. But, with the help of a Japanese friend who knows what kind of clothes I like, I have come up with a little list of nice, and CHEAP Japanese fashion sites.

Infamous hime looking shoes ..cute handbag too^^

I know many many people look for shops like this every day, and when I first became interested in Japanese fashion (and before I could speak, read and write Japanese) I found this search very hard, if not impossible. Tip - If you open these sites in Chrome it should translate them for you.

This is a very English friendly site, with Korean Chinese and Japanese fashion. Very fast shipping and really high quality with a masssssive selection.

One of my personal favourites, this site has loads of REALLY cheap stuff, little gyaru/cute styling, and they sell Body Fantasies body sprays which I love, as well as some really cute and cheap nail accessories and sleepwear. Definitely worth checking out.

Cute, simple fashion, accessories and lifestyle products.
Nice outfit idea....

This site is my number 1. The fashion is super cute, everything I'm looking for in clothing. A mix of rock, gyaru, girly and just average fashion, it's all priced fairly and has nice promotions and events happening on the site too. Be quick, things sell out really fast.
Very cute coat!! Sold out :( Give!

Again, cute, high quality simple fashion. Perfect for basics and staple pieces.
I'm gonna buy them all!

I will add to this list as I go but I'm pretty sure this is enough for now! Happy shopping! xx

ギャル Hairstyles//Gyaru hair

I've recently been thinking of having bangs cut, I already have long bangs, but I mean Tsubasa style bangs. Straight. But I'm really 50/50 on it. Anyway, I've been looking at images of hair all day so just thought I would post some cute ones.. and maybe I'll look at 'bang extensions'. Or just have a trim.......

Pointy Heart Nail Inspiration

I have always loved this style of nails, but never had it done with fear of poking my own eyeball out. Finally, I have decided, for my birthday in a couple of weeks, I will try it out. Here's some nice ideas if you are also thinking about getting a manicure like this.
