Recently I participated in a Reddit Gift Exchange. The theme for this gift exchange was all things Rilakkuma!

… and how can I not participate? I LOVE RILAKKUMA!! wp-monalisa icon

Here’s what I got from my Secret Santa.

So much Rilakkuma goodness, huh? wp-monalisa icon

I am having a mini-heart attack from the kawaii overload from looking at the photo above. It hurts my heart, lol.

When I first opened up my package, I found this cute pink and blue Rilakkuma bag with a note and two pens taped onto it. Inside the bag were a ton of other goodies!

Here’s a front view of the bag, since this is probably my favorite part out of the entire gift. wp-monalisa icon

Most of the items that I got from this exchange are all stationary related. You can really never have enough stationary~ I’ll probably be using all of these things for the little notes that I write to the winners of my blog giveaways, hehe.

This is a booklet that has lots of cute papers and sticky notes! wp-monalisa icon

I also got two stickers and a roll of Rilakkuma print tape. Gotta figure out where I’m gonna stick these stickers!! wp-monalisa icon

These are all of the writing utensils that I got. Two Rilakkuma pens, Rilakkuma purple highlighter, and vitamin ballpen.

This is enough for me to write a book! Haha wp-monalisa icon

And here’s a ton of loose sheet paper. These are the small sheets meant for cute little notes. I go through these quickly, so I’m happy to get these!

As an added bonus, my Secret Santa gave me these cute nail art stickers. I’ll definitely use these the next time I paint my nails! wp-monalisa icon

What made this gift even more special was that I could tell that my Secret Santa really took the time and effort to put this gift together. I could tell by all the little hand written notes scattered throughout.

Also loved reading this little folded up note. It made me feel like I was back in middle school when I used to write these sorts of notes to my girlfriends.

Vassen Color's Cloud Nine Blue Circle Lens Review

Happy Thursday~ Just one more day until the weekend!  Today I am happy to share another circle lens review with you gals. I know many of the recent reviews that I’ve been doing have all been for brown lenses (since I’ve been going through a more natural looking circle lens phase due to my past wedding and current working life). But today’s is different — we are going to have a look at Vassen Color’s Cloud Nine BLUE circle lens. These lens were sponsored to me from LoveShoppingholics.com for a cosplay that I was supposed to do for AX 2014. Unfortunately, my cosplay wasn’t up to my standards and I didn’t want to wear it just yet. You’ll get a quick preview of my outfit if you scroll to the bottom of this post.  As always, Love Shoppingholics packaged my lens in a very cute secured parcel. It came with a blue circle lens case, thank you note, bubble wrapped gift box — all placed neatly inside of a kawaii clear plastic bag. Cloud Nine Blue circle lens can be bought here for $22 About the lens: Available Colors: pink, purple, brown/orange, blue, and grey Origin: Korea Brand: Vassen Color Diameter: 14.5mm Water Content: 38% Base Curve: 8.6mm Life Span: 1 year disposal**

8 Fashion Essentials Every Mid-20's Woman Should Own

Hello~  Today I have for you my 8 fashion essentials that you should own if you are in your mid-20′s! First off, I want you to understand that this is a very materialist post. You can even say that it is “status” related. My opinion is that if you are in your mid-20′s, you should be at a place in life where you can afford to own each item on this list. Besides, I think you owe it to yourself because most likely you are a working woman. If you already have most of these items and you are in your early 20′s or younger, I think you’ve spoiled yourself a bit early. But I guess there’s no harm in that if you, your parents, or significant other can afford to. However, there’s more appreciation and respect when you buy things with your own income. Now let’s have a look at my superficial must have list!  #1  A Timeless Watch It’s good to be able to tell time without having to pull out your cell phone. Not only is it professional to wear a watch, but it can also be very fashionable. A woman who wears a watch, is a

Happy 4th of July & Lulu Pink Circle Lens Review

!! H A P P Y . F O R T H . O F . J U L Y !! It’s Anime Expo 2014 weekend. As you are reading this post, I’m most likely at the convention or partying it up for Independence Day! Today I have a special 4th of July themed circle lens review for you. I got the Lulu Pink circle lens sponsored from Klenspop.com. Klenspop also sent me another circle lens product for review, but I won’t be posting that for another couple of weeks. Here are all of the goodies that I got from them. This lens case is something new that I don’t typically get, so I was pretty excited when I saw it. I just love that it has such a huge mirror inside, and I feel that the overall quality of this case is on par. I will most definitely be carrying this with me in my purse everywhere I go! I find it useful to carry a lens case (pre-filled with solution) and glasses with me when I go out incase I end up staying out late or sleep over at a friends place. I’m spontaneous so it’s always useful to be prepared!

Danni Professional Mousse Concealer Review

Earlier today I messaged my friend saying, “Happy Hump Day!” — and she replied back saying that today doesn’t count as a hump day since it’s a shorter work week. Oh well, at least I’m grateful for the shorter work week because of Independence Day! Are you gals doing anything special for 4th of July? I decided last minute that I’m going to have a BBQ. The funny part is I have no idea when I’ll be able to prepare for the party, hahaha. Alright, enough with my useless jibber-jabber. Let’s move on to what this post is really about: Danni Professional Moose Concealer This product was sponsored by BornPrettyStore.com and can be found on their website for less than $6! The concealer comes in 3 different shades: 001 – fair 002 – light to medium 003 – medium to tan I personally wish that there were more shades available since 3 shades are sort of hard to match between. The lightest shade is actually too light for me, and the middle shade is a bit too warm for my skin tone. I guess you get what you pay for (a limited selection). However, if you do find a shade
