How to buy from Taobao

...Finally its here!

So as many of you know I order from Taobao fairly regularly and many people have been asking just how I do it. After contemplating and promising to make this post for months I've finally gotten round to doing it.... lol soz.

To order from Taobao you'll need a shopping or forwarding service. I use so this tutorial is going to be based off using their service. I tend to order every few months and I always stick with Taobaospree because their service is excelent, they're always extremely helpful and quick to reply to any queries. (Fyi this isn't a sponsored post, all opinions stated are my own.)

20th Birthday Karaoke & Gyaru meet

Sup guys,

So this weekend was pretty damn amazing, it was my actual birthday on Friday but I didn't really do much apart from going for a Korean BBQ with the fam.

Birthday presents from my family~

GLAVIL Monster parka which I am IN LOVE WITH, boots with gold details, earrings and grumpy cat book haha!

I also bought some extensions especially to wear for my birthday although the colour wasn't a perfect match :C

They kinda blend well when you first put them in but as the day went on and my curls fell they became more and more obvious;;;;;

On Saturday we had a gal meet as well as my birthday karaoke later on. I was running an hour late so I forgot to take an outfit picture before I left, so heres a derpy one with bad lighting that Amelie took later on that day....

Lmao Chriss SHE WAS PROPER BULLYING ME THAT DAY!!!!1!! (Chriss isn't gal but she likes bullying us so she always comes to our meets....)
Outfit rundown; GLAVIL lace dress (although its more like a top on me LOL), GLAVIL handcuff choker, MA*RS lace with pink trim skirt and MA*RS stockings. 

One of my fave pics from the meet with my adorable Chewiee<3 

Some polaroids from the meet and karaoke~

Later on was my karaoke party, which was a mixture of gals & other friends. Sadly my phone had pretty much died at this point so I didn't get to take any photos or videos apart from polaroids, BUT it was amazing and I got to sing all my fave songs!!

But that's not the best part
Look at the amazing cake Emilie got me!!!

A cake with the god that is Jaejoong on! ;^; Anyone who follows me on anything will know just how much I love this man;;;;;;; It was chocolate inside with vanilla cream WHICH IS LIKE MY MOST FAVOURITE FLAVOURS EVER EMILIE HOW DID YOU?!?!?! (Plus red is my fave colour 8D) I feel so guilty for eating him though... On top of this she also got me the lightstick from JJ's WWW tour too! I am honestly so thankful and I know I've posted how thankful I am on like every social media platform already but ahhhhh, considering I haven't seen her since before she went to Japan it was really sweet of her.

After that Emmie and KK came to stay at mine and we made disgusting jokes and watched Saint Oniisan~

This whole entire weekend basically felt like one super long Birthday, it was really memorable and I'm really thankful to everyone who came and made it such an amazing weekend!

(P.S. I recently made another taobao order and I always get asked how I do it/use it so I'll be posting on how to use them etc. soon!)

Thanks for reading!

GLAD NEWS 2014 Fukubukuro/Lucky pack

So uh... Happy new year I guess... even though its halfway through February already.
I know I'm really bad at blogging;;;;
Either way, last year was a terrible year for me and I hope this year is going to be 100x better.

But yes, back to the point of this post, I pretty much thought I'd missed out on this years lucky packs considering they tend to sell out fast and it can be pretty pricey to get your hands on them outside of Japan. However, the lovely Mitsu posted about Mobacolle [read the post here] and they just happened to have some pretty decent lucky packs still in stock, including brands such as GLAD NEWS, EMODA, GYDA etc [just go take a look for yourself, k?].

Now Mobacolle is a Japanese site, so I had to use a forwarding service (Tenso) to get my stuff, but lucky for ya'll Mitsu also has some very helpful posts on how to use such websites.

Now onto the actual contents~

It all came it this pretty useful bag, which I'll be sure to re-use.

Yup you read it right "Bondage Bear". This is legit my most fave thing ever.  

I was a bit iffy about this top when I first saw it, but the cut is really nice on, especially the neckline! (Plus who can resist a pumpkin saying "Fuck" lmao!)

 I honestly didn't think these jeans would fit my 37" hips but to my surprise they do! However the cut sucks (they're straight cut whilst I only wear skinny jeans) so I wont be wearing these. 

Wearing the Bondage Bear top haha! 

It's freezing in the UK right now so I'm really feeling big warm baggy clothes. 

Make up shot (sorry I'm not capable of pulling a face that doesn't make me look ridic). Also, as you can see I went blonde. I had to have my hair cut quite short too because it was so damaged. But yeah I'm really feeling this colour, I've only ever been brunette so its a welcome change. 

 In other news, I also got my first tattoo done last Monday,

It reads 永遠 "Eien" which means forever/eternity in Japanese. It's obviously not healed yet, so I'll take a photo in a couple weeks time when its all nice and healed (It's really scabby and gross rn lol).

This Friday (Feb 21st) is my 20th Birthday! So I'll be having a meet and party to commemorate no longer being a teenager I guess... I'll try to schedule a post for that after but uh, we'll see lol. 

Oh and one last thing, I'm not really feeling my blog url/theme anymore so this is just a heads up I'll probably change it soon. [EDIT: I actually changed it now! Goodbye pixel kitten, hello mirai devil]
