Apparel Dynasty: Box full of Rainbows!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a great Black Friday!
I spent my Thanksgiving weekend at work dealing with the crazy mall filled sales~

Alright ya'll here is the second part to my Holiday Gift Guide!

For the Rainbow lover!
I'm sure everyone has at least one friend whose wardrobe reminds you of a box of crayons. For me I have several. I hate picking out gifts for them because I don't want to get them all the same thing. And when I do find something that I think they would like I have to ask myself "Would they even use this?". Well I've finally found a solution to this problem! Apparel Dynasty has just what you need for the perfect gift. Artist Acrylicana has transformed her fun and colorful art into everyday apparel/luggage. If you have yet to see her work I highly recommend you check it out. It seriously is magically and she works with different media including digital, acrylic, watercolor and ink.

Apparel Dynasty was so kind to send me a big box of goodies to show to you all! 

First up we have their popular item: Scented Shoelaces! Crazy right? I know I was like..seriously scented?? And indeed they are. Below is six different versions of the styles you can get from left to right.
Ice Cream, Cotton Candy, Hot Dog, Fortune Cookie, Pizza, and Tutti Frutti.

You don't have to open the packages to smell them. Just scratch the orange star.  I ended up given a pair to my younger cousin because I know she likes these kind of things. I mean who doesn't like scratch and sniff though..its fun! Even the package itself looks super cute! Little pictures of food with faces run along the side of the lace.

(you can't really see the faces but here's a close up of Tutti Frutti)

Next is the Welcome to the Disco Cosmetic Bag.
With this you will never lose your make up bag ever again. It is a pretty decent size
 Measures 8.5" x 6.5" x 3 and I was able to fit all my cosmetics in here. 

Close up of design.

Signature initial on zipper.

Here is possibly one of my most favorite items I received in the box..
Party Party Platform Pumps...let me tell you. Straight up....these are even more magical in person.
Nah like FO REALZ. DISNEY MAGIC STATUS. The design consist of giggling ghost and rainbows along with a lot of other random images and her initial A on the top heel section. Ignore the random flowers my bra was in the photo and I didn't want to take the picture over again. I have not even worn them yet that's how much I love them. I'm waiting for the perfect event..although I should be breaking them in. They also come with extra heel tips.

Last but not least the Harmony Pull Along Luggage Bag. It's so big! And the design is beyond amazing. It makes me want to visit my cousin in Vegas just so I can have an excuse to use it. The best part is it's not only a duffel bag. There is a zipper on the side that reveals a extendable roll along handle. 

Bottom of the bag. 

YAY! Instant vacation bag. I won't be getting this luggage confused with anyone else's.
First thing my mom said when she saw it was "THATS MINES!" Um..sorry mom...I love you but...just no.

Well that's all folks! I appreciate Apparel Dynasty's generosity with all the great gifts they sent. I was not expecting all of this!!! Before I forget I wanted to let you all know that the Party Party Pumps featured in this review are now available on>LINK HERE

NuMe Style Curling Wand (25mm Hot Pink!)

Hello Hello!
So now that Christmas is coming up and everyone will be doing their Holiday shopping, now is the best time to start checking people off your shopping list! Over the next few weeks I will be posting Gift Ideas. Basically writing about items that would be perfect for your friends or family.

Gift for the Beauty Lover. 

What do you get for the person with super straight hair who dreams of sexy curls/waves? The NuMe Curling wand is a no "clamp" curling iron that creates quick, easy, beautiful curls. You just wrap your own hair around the barrel and release after a few seconds creating beautiful wavy curls each time. I was so excited when I received this in the mail! I had seen other reviews on this product and loved the way the curls came out for others. Sadly when I received it I realized that there is no heat adjustment setting for this product. Meaning there is one heat and one heat only. You can not adjust it to make it any "cooler" or any hotter. The temperature setting for the curling wand is 410 degrees F/ 210 degrees C. Sadly it is just way too hot for my natural hair. Luckily for me I wear a lot of wigs and sometimes weaves that are human hair so I can use the curler on that. For those who have hair that just refuses to curl, this is the curling wand for you. 

I choose the 25mm Hot Pink one! They have various different styles and sizes you can choose from.
Below is the box it comes in.

It also comes with a heating glove so you do not burn yourself when you're wrapping the hair around the barrel....believe me I forgot the glove and already burnt my hand. Don't be a Mie use the glove~

I found this product super easy to use! It heats up fast, and the curls came out beautifully each time.
I thought it would have been a bit difficult to use but its actually not. Other than it not having a heat adjustment setting I have no other complaints about this product!
Overall: 4/5!!!

Check out the video of me actually using the curling wand and the beautiful results at the end!
Please watch and subscribe <3

So sorry for the audio issues going on here. I don't know why its so low and it doesn't match up at the end.
Which is why I typically don't do video reviews because of how much video editors hate me.

***SPECIAL DISCOUNT*** wanted me to share with you all a special coupon code for you to use
now through 12/31/11. Use code Nobeautylimits11 on all curling wands when you go to check out :)
Believe me this is a really awesome discount!

Lace Pink Princess Nails

Hi Hi!
I am super excited you guys~ I am trying to put together another EPIC giveaway and so far im doing pretty good. This will probably be a Christmas themed giveaway^

I had been waiting on this package for awhile and I was kinda scared that it might have gotten lost in the mail.
Kkcenterhk sent me two pairs of false nails. The first pair is a light pink/black princess style design with black bows and pink stones to top it off. The black section is lined with a cute pink lace design that gives it that girly elegant effect. Each set contains 12 nails that each vary in size and pink tinted nail glue.

12 Pieces Pink Black Lace False Nail Tips [N300]

I found that the glue wasn't messy at all and made it easy to apply. The design is very cute and works perfectly with any type of fashion your into whether it is gyaru, lolita, fairy kei, decora, chic, etc etc.
I did notice that on the website these nails are under a different brand and have a different packing, so do note that when if you do plan to purchase them~

I think their sizing is a bit weird when it comes to the nails. I prefer to have only 1 of my nails decorated with the bows and rhinestones but because of the sizing I had to choose two. When applying press down firmly and let the glue dry for 20 seconds before going back on Tumblr. They have a good selection of designs that are perfect for special one day events that you don't want to go to the salon for.

Overall 4/5!

Hey everyone.

I really hate it when i'm waiting on packages and those are the things that are delaying me from posting.
I have a list in mind on the order my post should come in. I like to follow that order to keep myself sane and organized. But it also makes me behind on posting. It seems like each time im coming up with 1000 excuses on my delays. Which is sad and uncool.

One week of Halloween!

Happy Day After Halloween~

At my job we all dressed up everyday for the Halloween Season. I can't believe how fun it actually was.
Seriously a whole week just coming in costume I loved it. I kept forgetting to take photos of my outfits but on the first "dress-up" day I was a vintage black and white Minnie Mouse. Basically my outfit from the Beautylish event  paired with my Mickey Mouse Top Hat! I thought it was kinda plain.. but it went over with our male customers. REALLY well...maybe a little too well ya know?

The following day I came dressed in one of my lolita outfits. My coworkers were shocked to find out that this wasn't even a costume. Just generally part of my wardrobe.
Bow: Btssb
Blouse: Bodyline
Dress: Btssb
Socks: Btssb
Shoes: Bodyline

The following day I dressed up as a dinosaur! I just simply wore my Dinosaur Kigurumi. I don't have good photo of this but here a laptop cam shot I took after work~

The last two days I just wore my Space Cadet costume I got for 3 DOLLARS at my job ^o^ It didn't come with the sequin bow or the star clip. Just the costume and arm warmers.
Time for really bad Itouch photo camwhore shots~

So those were my Halloween Costumes! And I spent Halloween at work~ Well at least everyone else had fun. I also made time to visit my friend coming from Utah. We met up at Disneyland in the evening and chilled for the rest of the night. I had fun.. for a little bit. The people she came with (minus one) was certainly getting on my last nerves. Like seriously Debbie downer people. Leave that in Utah don't bring it Disneyland. I tried to make the best of it and put up with them for the rest of the night. I just don't see who would choose the Winnie the Pooh ride over Fantasmic.
 Baily and Minami

I think the best part about it is I got a Disneyland Annual Pass! Help me make the most of it kay? I got the deluxe pass so I have more available days to go ^^

What were you for Halloween?
