Stay Cute Deco custom phone case Review!

Hello Everybody~!

Here comes a long awaited review that I actually did a loooong time ago, but that I 'saved' instead of published ... And here I was wondering why nobody would comment on this ... (boy don't I feel stupid right now...)

Anyway, so here I am with a review on a custom phone case from Stay Cute Deco! Stay Cute Deco is a little deco shop that is run by the adorable Staci! She contacted me asking if I could do a review on one of her phone case and I felt really honored! I usually do reviews on circle lenses and stuff like that, but making a review on an item that is custom made for me something completely different! Ofcourse I wanted to do a review, but at the time I had a HTC one X, that usually doesn't come with a lot of cute covers so I hoped she could make one for my phone, and she could~! She can basically make phone cases for every phone that has a cover available somewhere.

She asked me what i'd like to have on it and I basically said I love everything pink and let your imagination run free! So I got really excited and couldn't wait for my cover to come in! And it came in really fast! I think I waited about 2 weeks, that is including making and shipping~! So I was really surprised by that! It came in a cute envelope and it was securely wrapped and packed, but because I was so excited to see it, I didn't take pictures of that ... But lets get on to the pictures I do have, an those are the pictures of the phone case itself!




Needless to say that I absolutely loved it~! It's gorgeous, pink, fluffy and glittery, it has roses, bows, pearls and cakes, basically everything I love! Oh and did I say it's pink yet? It is beautifully crafted, very detailed and it's not heavy at all :o I had heavier phone cases than this that didn't have as much on it! She paid close attention to where she put her deco~ For example I love that she worked around the camera, so the deco is never in the way of the camera and she didn't put too much deco on the side so that it is still easy enough to hold on to! I have small hands so holding a big phone is usually an issue for me :P 

I absolutely love the phone case and I haven't taken it of ever since! I would recommend keeping it away from places that contain sand and lots of dust, cause the whipped cream on the case can be a little sticky and attracts little dust etc. Its easy to clean, but if you're lazy like I am try to avoid getting it dirty haha.

If you want an adorable phone case like this, visit her store here: http://www.storenvy.com/stores/17964-stay-cute-deco or give her a message on facebook~! Here are some other examples of her work:

 
 

Isn't it adorable? I'd almost eat it! So go to the facebook page, give them a like and get your adorable phone case now! :3

[Sponsored Review] E-circlelens.com ICK Fresh Gray and Brown

Goodmorning everybody!


Today I am back with yet another lens review for you, and I hope you're not sick of them yet! ^^"

This review is sponsored by E-circlelens.com and I got to choose from a new brand called ICK. So I chose my two favorite colors for lenses, brown and gray! I picked the fresh series because they looked both natural and vibrant. And I wanted lenses that I could do a more natural look with. The shipping was fast and secure and their service is really good!

So lets go on to the review! Excuse my simple look, I've been a bit ill lately but I tried!



Design/ Colour 5/5:
I love the colour of these lenses because they fit my natural eyecolour so well! It gives my own eyes a little extra by the soft yellow ring that's in the middle. The design is grainy which makes it more natural and makes it blend better with your own eyes.

Enlargement 2/5: 
These lenses hardly enlarge, but then again that is not the thing I was going for anyway! Like I said I wanted lenses I could wear with more natural make-up.

Comfort 5/5:
Nothing to say about this! They are comfortable to wear and easy to put in! I can wear these lenses for hours on end before they start to feel a little dry.






Design/ Colour 4/5:
Though I really like the color of these lenses, they do have a big opening in the middle so you can see a lot of my own eyecolor. This is why I usually stick to light lenses because brown lenses like these show up a little weird on my eyes. I think these would do really well on brown eyes though!

Enlargement 2/5: 
Like the ones above, they don't enlarge a lot but are good for a little extra with your daily make-up!

Comfort 5/5:
Saying the same as above: Nothing to say about this! They are comfortable to wear and easy to put in! I can wear these lenses for hours on end before they start to feel a little dry.

So that's it for the review, I hope it was of some use for you! I will soon update with some other stuff as well, because just reviews are boring :') But I always find it helpfull to see lenses on light eyes first! Because unfortunately most stock photos show them on dark eyes which give a whole different effect.

Lensvillage Photoshoot Program // Barbie Forest Series

Hello Everybody, long time no post!

A little while back Lensvillage.com contacted me to do a photoshoot program for a serie of their lenses! And ofcourse you know me, I always love to do these type of things!

So I decided to try and do some different looks for every lens color. Did all of these in one day so my eyes were a little sore afterwards from putting in and taking out the lenses and changing my make-up :') So without further ado, let me show you the pictures!




 


Okay so I admit, those are quite a lot of pictures and the post looks a little unorganized but I figured doing them all in separate posts would be even more of an over kill ^^"

My overall impression of these lenses are pretty good! They are comfortable, but most of them are a little dark for my taste. I like my light eyes and often pick lenses that light up my eyes but I think the color of these lenses will look really really vibrant on darker eyes! The design is quite interesting, the dark stripes through the color add to the overall darker color of the lenses. I like the grey ones best!

So if you would like any of these please take a look at www.lensvillage.com!

Annual Lolita Meet!

Hello everyone!

Here is a post about a topic that I haven't blogged about in a looooong time. Lolita! Most of you know that I've been into lolita since 2003, but I stepped over to Gyaru around 2009. Since then the dutch lolita community has been growing and growing, and a lot of my friends grew out of the style as well. But every year there is this Lolita Picknick that I try to go to with my friends, to chat up with some lolitas of the older generations, that often come to this meetup as well!

This year we were, as always, supposed to have a picknick. But unfortunately the Dutch weather is super shit so those plans had to be canceled last minute, and there had been decided to go to a pancake restaurant! Let me show you the look of the day :) It felt really weird wearing lolita again after such a long time! I honestly think that I haven't worn it for over a year or so~ But maybe I was just also nervous about all the new people that took our place xD




The outfit has been completely handmade by your truly, the skirts, the blouse and the bow necklace which you can get at www.princess-apparel.com!
The day started off with me being very nervous meeting everyone at the central station, but luckily there were some girls I know already there! And not shortly after Charlotte arrived, which calmed my nerves a lot more. So after everyone gathered at the station, and loads of people came up to us and asked for pictures and explanation etc etc, we started walking to the pancake house! It was pretty fun because there was a huge group of nearly 50 people and I was wondering if everyone would fit in the restaurant xD But the restaurant was huge so that wasn't a problem! Most people ordered pancakes, ofcourse, but I'm not a huge fan of pancakes so I decided on a different dish. And it was the best decision since a long time cause I got a delicious sandwich and I'm definitely coming back for another one some day! I won't bore you with longer stories, here are some pictures!


Charlotte and I were wearing the same ring from Princess Apparel! xD So ofcourse a picture had to be taken. 


My delicious sandwich   It had grilled goat cheese, honey, nuts, salad an all kind of other goodies on it! 

Charlotte and her pancake with apples and raisins!
These are all the pictures from the restaurant~ But after lunch we all went to another place in Utrecht to take some group pictures and other pictures, so I have more of that!


Here is a group picture that I stole from Miranda, a lolita that was active during the same time as me so it was fun seeing her again!


HYPER Crew going Lolita! XD

 
Charlotte, looking too adorable to function. She made the skirt herself! 

Kari, who's radiance blinded my camera in her gorgeous handmade dress :D 


And then there's me xD With the adorable cat bag Charlotte gave me when she came back from Japan!


Derping around~ 


Everybody chatting up and taking pictures


Me being unable to properly aim my camera xD


And yay, it worked!


With the lovely Irvina! I love hanging out with her, she is so funny xD

After all of this the group parted, some went to a church garden to take more pictures, and a small group (where I was in) decided to go and have a drink somewhere. It was really fun to be with a smaller group, it makes it a lot easier to talk to people! I had a lot of fun at this meetup and I hope I will see a lot of girls again soon! And a big thanks to the organizers for organizing this meetup!
