Week update ❤

Hello loves~ this is Mei,

It has been a while since I've posted (°_。) been busy. Well, last week, I had my junior recital - it went pretty well I think, hahahaha. Usually when I rehearsed, I'd normally have a slip up somewhere but the actual recital flowed seamlessly, which was great! 

Here's my dress, I forgot to take a picture of it while standing up actually...

I realized after the recital that I like the hair better when it's down. Oh well.

Grace wasn't able to make it to the recital so she brought some Macarons for me with a card ❤❤ so sweet.

From Bottega Louis. There was a green one too but I forgot to take a picture and ate it, hahahaha 

It was the first time I had ever had Macarons. It was so goooddddd~~~ the pink one was rose flavored with a smooth buttercream filling. It was great, loved it so much. 


This past weekend, I hung out with a whole bunch of people. Soooo, Saturday, we went to Macaroni Grill and Round 1 with two of Jaz's friends from school. They've never been to Macaroni Grill and Round 1 so we decided to take them there. 

Here's Tammy and Jaz

Will and Gene

Kevin and Oppa (Josh)

My crab stuffed mushrooms. They tasted...... not too great that night. The cream sauce was watery, the stuffing was dry and the flavor was bland. Definitely not a great night for crab stuffed mushrooms.

The Panna Cotta however.... was DELICIOUS!! ❤❤ Loved every single bite of it. Totally made up for the mushrooms.

After, we went to Round 1 and found these babies:

Yeah, looks easy? HELL NO! These buggers are freaking hard to get like this. Either that or we just suck. 

There was this couple that watched Jaz and Will the WHOLE time they were trying. They spent like a good 50 bucks or so trying to get that thing and they finally gave up. Then this couple tried it, got it, and flaunted it around while conspicuously following our group. Needless to say, Jaz was pretty seethed. 

I mean, EVERY AREA WE WENT TO. SERIOUSLY?!! (=∇=;|||) 
Even when we exited the building towards the parking lot. A good two minutes later, they emerged from the exit and walked RIGHT past our group. We all kind of just wanted to mob them.

Aside from Rilakkuma, there are also these other babies:

You see the pink one in between all the blue ones? The light pink one? IT'S ADORABLE!!!! ❤❤

My outfit for the night:


The next night, we went over to Jaz's for dinner. Dishes were mainly prepared by Oppa and Jaz. Both are awesome cooks. Oppa is like master chef, hahaha. 

Sab and Robert, aren't they cute? ❤(●´―`●)

Oppa made creme brulee and garnished it so beautifully.

I look so tired, hahaha (>∇<;)

With tiff~~

The Big 2-ers. Jaz looked away, hahahaha

After, we played Mafia which was pretty hilariously epic because of the settings we chose. Townsville and UCLA (post Alexandra Wallace) so there were a lot of hilarious jokes made during the round correlated to that video. 

Hope you guys have a great rest of the day~~ ❤

❤ Mei

Problematic Hair.

Hi beautiful gal and guys!
Rina Here!

Having a hard time with super frizzy, retarded, over dyed, damaged, dry hair?

VOILA! My boyfriend's mum recommended VO5 Hot Oil treatments!

She said my hair was sooo unhealthy at the ends. So damaged. And SO!

We went to buy these at CVS. :D Since I couldn't find them at Target.

I also bought:

You leave them on for like 5 minutes. Like it's kinda stinky though. Not a bad stinky..

Like honey? I don't know.. But! It makes your hair UBER soft.(Oh no my nerd-ness typing)

This one is weird. You leave it on for the whole night, hence the name Overnight Repair Treatment. Hehehe. It's stinky as well, but I don't really see a difference when I wake up.

Oh Dove. I love Dove. It smells pretty and the after effects... Are just wonderful. It's like super soft-ness in the hair. I just love it.

Anyways, to all you gals that dye your hair, keep them healthy and strong!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hihi! Rina Here!

Happy St. Patricks Day!

I hope you all are going to have fun tonight! ... You know what I mean? (:

Today was.. kinda.. eh. We went to look for more cars, but ended up that we went to a dealer that sold their company. So the lot was freakin' empty. And the customer service wasn't that great either. The man had NO motivation whatsoever to sell us a car. But I did go to the mall.

Nothing much that's new though. (:

I hope that you guys have fun today! And be super safe!


PPS: Let's all keep Japan in our prayers. I hope they're doing safe.

Praying for Japan

Hello loves, this is Mei

I'm sure you guys have all heard about Japan's earthquake and tsunami disaster. My aunt's sister and mom are in Japan, but thank God they are alright. My aunt's sister was stuck at work because transportation was not working, but she's okay.

Anyways, I have friends who can't get in touch with other friends in Japan, so it's scary and a bit heartbreaking. However, we're not losing hope. I know that God will be there, and we have been praying for Japan.

I have no monetary power to help, which makes me feel so useless. So, I want to contribute in some way, shape, or form.  I've been praying for the people in Japan and I've also been composing a song. I remember, the last time there was a large disaster - Haiti - I tried to compose a song, but I still wasn't very good at composing so I ended up scrapping it in shame. Now I'm trying to compose again for the disaster in Japan, so I'm hoping I can finish it. Honestly, I don't think I will completely finish, but I'm going to do my best.

For those of you with the monetary power to help, please watch this from 'manwomanfilm' and donate. If not, it's alright, but please keep Japan in your prayers:

Thank you all,
❤ Mei

Busy Busy Busy!!

Hey guys, this is Mei ❤
Waahhh, I've been so busy with midterms and junior recital preparations. I'm so sorry I haven't been able to update 

I have my junior recital poster done:

This is my main poster, hahaha. The one below this one wasn't approved because the lollipop may be too suggestive (>∇<;) I wasn't exactly thinking about that when I did the photos for my poster.

I just thought, " Okay! This is going to be dream-themed with lullabies, visions, nursery-esque... striped background, lollipop... etc...." I kind of forgot the double meaning lollipops had. Sad day. I like the way it turned out. Oh well!

If anybody would like to attend, it's going to be in Azusa Pacific University in California.
There's going to be 30 minutes of classical repertoire, and the program will center
around the theme of 'dreams'.

It will be featuring the works of Monteverdi, Handel, Schubert, Mozart, Brahms, Reger, Faure, Rich, and Copland.

I'm sorry this post wasn't too great, hahaha. I just wanted to let you guys know I'm still alive and... well... living the college life and hitting the books. (I'm pretty sure I've fried my brain these past couple of days) (=∇=;|||)

I also want to say hellooo!! Thanks and welcome to new followers!!

Well, I hope everyone has a good rest of the week!

❤ Mei

Hair Tutorials and Mie's Giveaway

Hi guys this is Mei~~~

Sooo, sometimes I have trouble figuring out how to style my hair, and when I go online. I have a hard time looking for gal hair style tutorials that I already haven't seen before. 

So I would like to help you guys out with a link!

Here are a few examples of the finished hairstyles.

This is my favorite, the mermaid half up style. 

She provides step by step tutorials with pictures, and even though it's in Japanese, I find that the pictures are helpful (but then I do read and understand a little, little, liiiitttlleee bit of Japanese, so if you can read, it will help very much!!)

I'll help you guys navigate through the site.  

The first link: コテの選び方 and the bullet below it is  information about the types of curling irons.
I think the one below it is basic hair techniques. (基本的な巻き方)

Then, the section below it has the tutorials (挑戦!!ヘアアレンジ)

The first bullet point is "Up Hair" or Up-dos I believe. 
The Second bullet point is "Half Up" or hair styles (like the mermaid hair) that are... well... half up! (>∇<;)
Then, the last bullet is uhhh, I can't read this, hahaha but they're basically fluffier styles. (I think, correct me if I'm wrong)

The link below that one has pictures to a variety of hair accessories. (ヘアピン•ヘアアクセス)

I don't really check out the other links, because the ones I listed above are mainly the ones I use for tutorials and suchness.
So, I hope you guys find this useful at least to some degree, haha!! (´・ω・`)


and I would love to turn your attention to Mie's ME! Bath giveaway~ ☆ミ

She is giving away one of their Green Tea Ice Cream Bath bomb 

I think this picture is a chocolate one, but she will be giving away the green tea one. So visit her here and check out how to enter!! ❤

Have a great night loves~ ❤ Mei

Mini update!

Hello! Rina here!

I've recently passed my DMV driving test and is currently GOING CRAZY!
Because, I need a car. (: Hehehe. But you see, I want a beautiful car so I can stick with it for like a long time. :D And not regret it.

Anyways, on to the mini update-ness.

"Coffee" Cake. You think it'll taste like coffee...

WRONG! it's actually coconut cake inside and the top frosting is almond vanilla. (:
Made by mom for my step dads birthday.

Frost design L'oreal Highlights.

My review: It practically bleaches your hair. (: And it's actually quite fun to do since you have a cap and you pull your hair through small holes with a hook. BUT! it takes a while to do the whole process. Honestly, I should've left the dye in longer to have the light blonde colour. ): Oh well.

It was on sale at Target. (: So I have no idea if they're keeping this brand or if it's like getting rid of stock. I don't know.

Telescopic Explosion. (: Amazing. It has like this super cool brush thats... A ROUND BALL!

My review: It works well.. I just don't like the fact that you have to work hard for lash coverage. Like when you use a normal mascara, it's a long big brush, but with this, it's like... brush here. brush there, brush here, brush there, brush, brush. yeaaa. It's a lot of work. But I do like the results. No more clump-ness!

Forever21 panties. Yay!

Forever21 Bras! They're soo cute right now. (: and super sexy!

Follow Up Review and Satomin make-up

Hey guys!~ It's Mei here

I thought it would be a good idea to do a follow up review of two of the make-up products I'm using. 

First, I'm going to do a follow up review on 

The Milani Infinite Liquid Eye Liner I bought maybe two months ago or so.

Recently, whenever I take it out to use it, the consistency has been clumpy, coagulated, and thick. I like to take my time with applying my liners, and usually, it doesn't affect the liner when I keep it opened. 
However, I think it affects this liner, because since the day I've bought it, it has become thicker and stickier. Kind of makes me sad (*゜―゜) I really like the way it stays on (as well as how painstakingly difficult it is to remove). 

Well, I bought it for what? 7 or 8 bucks? Although there are resemblances to M.A.C's Liquidlast Liner, it's still not going to beat it. You get what you pay for, haha.

Second, I want to re-review the Melliesh Honey Apricot Gloss I bought

Recently, something that I've been noticing with this one is that the top layer of the gloss doesn't stay on for too long. I will usually have to reapply after every two or three hours to get that nice liquid shine (which I tend to LOVE). It's still great with moisturizing after long hours.


So today, I've been trying out Satomin's make-up style. I love her make-up!! It's very sweet, with pink lips, cheeks, and round eyes. I really like the round dolly eye effect she has, and I realized that (in my case) it has a lot to do with the placement of the lashes around the eyes.

I hope you've all been having a good week so far. I've been so bogged down by midterms, homework, and recital preparations, hahaha. So hopefully, things will settle down after this month.

❤ Mei
