Lastly, wanted to share my new Nike purchase that should be coming in the mail any minute now…

Nike Air Jordan 1 Anodized GS in Voltage Cherry

Cheee! Way excited to get these :)

Ahhh, I am seriously such a sucker for anything with Hello Kitty on it!! I want everything in almost every collaboration Sanrio does, and I will shell out the $$$$$ (ugh, what I would do for an iPad so I could get this). Case in point: I almost considered buying Hello Kitty Doc Martens, even though that’s not even my style. I also found myself wanting a Hello Kitty humidifier… I haven’t EVER used a humidifier (but maybe it’s time to start using one…it’s Hello Kitty! No?)

It’s a sickness. A horrible, cute sickness. So anyway, I had found out about the Hello Kitty x Vans collection a while ago and I even put it in my calendar that the collection was launching in June. I actually like Vans, well more than Doc Martens (and btw, if Hello Kitty ever does an official collaboration with Nike, it is OVER, I am buying the entire collection).

I happened to browse the website last night and found the collection had already launched (yes, I browse Sanrio.com sometimes… don’t judge me). Those sneaky people over at Vans and Sanrio knew that many adult Hello Kitty fans are petite ladies with small feet… and so they only carry girls sizing up to size 4 (just shy of my 5.5!). Thus, I had to pay $15 extra dollars for my shoes :(

But anyway! Here are some pictures of the style I picked out - pink Hello Kitty print lace-ups, $50. I’ll post more pictures once I receive them!

(All pictures are from Sanrio.com, where you can buy the shoes). I got mine from the Vans website here, since shipping is a few bucks cheaper.

So, on a different note… I have no money!! I can’t believe I just spent $50 I don’t have!! So I thought I’d also try to publicize this item I’m trying to sell on eBay… if you or someone you know would be interested in purchasing a sold-out, rare Lanvin x HM dress, please take a look here! (If you go back in my blog, this is the capsule collection I camped out overnight for. I bought an extra for a friend who didn’t end up needing it, so I am selling it on eBay)

Here are some pictures of the dress I’m selling:

Sorry I’ve been so MIA… school’s been killing me. Let’s just say I have six weeks of six exams - one exam per week. Three finals (3 hours each) and three comprehensive exams (4 hours each) that cover the entire year. I’m planning to blog something a little more personal and interesting than outfits and makeup, but for now I just wanted to share these pictures and swatches I took.

First, outfit of the day! Except I wore this maybe two weeks ago… lol.

What: striped button down - Forever 21; white jeggings - Zara; sandals - Steve Madden
Where: school, what else…

Next up: Hello Kitty x Sephora’s new eyeshadow and blush palette, “Memoirs of a Kitty”. I was MUCH more excited about this palette than the other two that launched with the original collection. They replaced the lip glosses with two blushes, made the packaging 10x cuter and more unique.

Cute packaging!

Super kawaii cherry blossom print on the compact

First tier of the compact: mirror + four eyeshadows (hehe you can see me in the mirror… wearing a Hello Kitty tank top of course :P)
img_7637.JPG
Second tier: peach and pink blushes!
img_7639.JPG
Close up of the blushes. They are pretty matte for the most part, though there is a tiny bit of shimmer/glitter, but it’s very subtle. Actually, I really love these blushes

I actually really love these blushes; they are very pigmented, soft, and blendable. I find myself using these blushes more now than I did my NARS Orgasm blush! It’s a nice flush of color without very much shimmer.

Overall, I really LOVE this palette. It is SOOOOO ADORABLE! Not to mention the product quality is great. I use the blushes a lot, and the eyeshadows are also very nice (though not the most unique colors). Still, it’s just so cute…

You can purchase it in Sephora stores or online here for $35.

Anyway, that’s it for now! Promise I’ll update with something a little more substantial once I find time!

I’m hungry and need to make dinner, so this will be short and sweet.
