Dreaming Of A Kawaii Christmas | My Kawaii Wishlist <3

If you are anything like me, you have a long kawaii wishlist of things you have just been pining over this year, but being the responsible adult that I am (don’t laugh!) have decided against spending all of your money on. It is times like these, we turn to the good man himself to make our kawaii wishlist dreams come true 😛

Dear Santa,

I believe that this year I have been a very good girl! (Well, mostly 😛 ). Please put me on your list under nice, and help me be my super kawaii self next year by climbing down my chimney (or, you know, dog door since we technically don’t have a chimney) and putting some of my super kawaii wishlist items under the christmas tree!

Lots of Love,

Sarah

Yes? No? yeah, I wouldn’t fall for it either 😛 It was worth a try! But hey, here is my list anyway.

iScream Nails full polish set and nail art book

I have been obsessing about the amazing pastel colours that these adorable ice cream shaped nail polishes come in since I first laid eyes on them on instagram. The pastel colours that they come in are just the perfects shades of everything, and they even have a nail art book to go with it. I am just dying to get my hands on the full set of colours so I can expand on my hand painted nail art. Everything I do right now is usually based around 3d nail art purely because I don’t own a great range of colours.

Gamer Crop top from Pastel Pixie

I wanted to take this one home with me when I went to their store up in Queensland. Unfortunately they had sold out and I never got the chance 🙁 The precious will me mine on day!

ALL OF THE TOO FACED PRODUCTS! 😛

Ever since I got my hands on the Grand hotel Cafe Christmas box set I have been obsessed. The better than sex mascara is so darn good, and I have been in love with the pink and Chocolate Bon Bon palettes forever.

Starry Party Pink Sleeveless Skater Dress From Holley Tea Time

Bait footwear Ione shoes in Pink/Lavender

I think these have been on my list for a few years now as they are just so cute. I love how the cut of them has a bit of a vintage flair, but they adorable pastel colouring keeps it super Kawaii. They look so comfy too!

The Sims 4 Stuff Packs!

I have been playing The Sims a fair bit as of late, and they have so many stuff packs out! I would love all of them so I can continue making my pink town the cutest place on earth <3

World Of Warcraft – Legion

For those of you that have been watching me stream WoW with my husband each night, you will know that I am currently playing my highest ever toon, a Lvl 84 Warrior. I will be hitting eng game content real soon, and I’m going to need to get this expansion if I want to keep going!

Nail Art Of The Month | Crystal Nails, Big Bows And A LOT Of Glitter!

Ok so maybe this isn’t nail art from just the past month. Maybe, just maybe I have been a terrible blogger and haven’t posted my nail art in a while. oops.

Lately, I have been all about the crystal nails look, ever since I saw it on tres_she on Instagram. I fell in love right away and knew I had to try it. So I jumped online and purchased myself some shiny things and have been having a ball with it since.

Nail Art Of The Month | Oh So Kawai | Pink + Purple Crystal Nails with bows and heart diamonties

I think these are my favourite version of this so far. I love the shades of pink and purple and the little heart rhinestones are just too cute. One thing I have been meaning to retry this with is doing my own bows. I like the effect the bows add to the nails, but using pre made ones are a little annoying as they stick out and I am forever getting them stuck in my hair.

Nail Art Of The Month | Oh So kawaii | New 2 tones bows and flower petals

I have been so into trying out new things lately. I watched a tutorial online for a different type of bow to what I usually do and wanted to give it a go. I have never tried two tone acrylic sculpting before, but I think it came out ok. I tried a new way of doing it this time, so rather than sculpting the bows and flower petals right onto my nail, I used a rounded surface that i could move about to make them and then stuck them onto the nails. i think I will definitely have to give that one another go, because it made life so much easier being able to move the surface about in more directions than my hand can bend 😛

Nail Art Of The Month | Oh So Kawaii | Purple glitter nails with hear crystals and pink diamonties

…aaannnddd enter the glitter. When I ordered all of the crystal foils, I also bought a bunch of super cute glitters as well! This purple was just too gorgeous to not cover everything in, so… well, I covered everything in it lol.

Nail Art Of The Month | Oh So Kawaii | Pretty blue glitter nails with pink foils and big 3d bows

This is the second glitter that I ordered, but I tried to not go too over board with it on this set. I wanted to have two different colours and to use a bunch of different coloured diamonties to my usual pink/clear combination. I hadn’t done proper bows on my nails in quite a while, so I thought I would throw a few in there for good measure 🙂

Nail Art Of The Month | Oh So Kawaii | Matte pink nails with pink glitter and 3d nail art bows and heart rhinestones

Last but not least, we have this super adorable set that I did on my sister-in-law when she came over from Melbourne to visit us for the weekend. She wanted something cute and matte with bows and diamonties. She love pink about as much as I do, so we went for this gorgeous shade with a bit of glitter thrown in. I am super pleased with how these turned out, I might have to do a set on myself! 😛

What do you prefer, crystal or glitter nails? Let me know in the comments below!

Valentines Day Fancy Hat Lolita Meet | Angelic Pretty's Toy Fantasy Coordinate

 I am so far behind on my blogging, that this meet was all the way back in February for Valentines day! I almost wasn’t going to post about it, but I got such lovely photos of the group, and I was so proud of my hat that I thought I would just do it anyway.

So for Valentines day this year the Adelaide Lolita Community held a fancy hat meet. The premise was just that, put together a coordinate and wear an OTT hat to go with it. I had just obtained Angelic Pretty’s Toy Fantasy in white and way super excited to wear it. This is the first print I have ever owned more than one copy of (I have the skirt in sax) as I just adore the print.

Valentines Day Fancy Hat Lolita Meet | Angelic Pretty's Toy Fantasy Coordinate

In making my hat I decided to stick with the toy theme. I had a cute pink top hat I had purchased around Easter the year before, which I covered with different toys and cute things with a glue gun.

When we arrived they handed us all a champagne glass of sparkling fruit juice (I later discovered that this is because they do not have a liquor licence) as we sat down. They then started bringing out share plates of food and big pots of tea.

All of the food was amazingly decedent, they had everything – scones, various sandwiches and cupcakes to die for.

As always I got my own plate of gluten free treats which were quite delicious, although I was a little disappointed to find there wasn’t any GF scones.

There was a a prize for best hat, the winner of which was chosen by the staff at the cafe. Tamara Took out the prize for best hat with her gorgeous rose tiara.

Everyone really dressed to the nines for this meet and it showed, every single member of the group looks amazing in their various coordinates.

kawaii-gamer-lets-play-politicats

Welcome to my first instalment of Kawaii Gamer. The first video of what I hope will be many, revolving around reviews of cute Kawaii games you can play either on your phone or your computer. After my amazing and eventful weekend at PAX Aus this year, I was feeling super inspired by some of the cute games I discovered in the indie section. On my way home I started looking up Kawaii Games I could play on my phone and found a whole bunch of them I am just itching to play. For these video’s I will download a game that looks adorable, then run you through how to play it, as well as review it for kawaiiness, enjoyment, ease of use and price.

Considering all the horribleness that has been happening in world politics these last few weeks, it got me thinking. Do you know what the world needs more of right now? Kittens.

So without further udo, I would like to introduce this weeks Kawaii game – Politicats!

This is a game I found on the iTunes app store whilst looking for a cute game to play. It was free, and created by a company called Reality Squared Game Co Limited. This is what their game description said:

In a reality where cats are the most adorably devious creatures in existence, it’s only natural for them to seek unlimited political power – and they need your help!

Create your cute, cuddly candidate, and realize your dreams of world domination by assembling a team of tiny humans to manage your campaign and get you elected. You’ll start out as Class President and work your way up to become Supreme Earth Cat, earning endorsements from Celebrity Cats along the way! Watch as supporters flock to hear what you have to say, offering up their hard earned cash to fund your global campaign.

So get out there, Vote Cat, and make 2016 the year of the kitten!

I don’t know about you, but I am already sold. So lets dive in a see if this game is any good or not!

If you would like to play along with me, you can download Politicats from the iTunes store here.

What did you think of Politicats? Do you have any suggestions of cute games you think I should play?

lolita-twinning-meet-pink-lavender-cotton-candy-shop-print-by-angelic-prett-smally

I think one of my favourite things about Lolita is that it is perfectly acceptable for two people to be wearing identical outfits – it is even encouraged! To that ends, the Adelaide Lolita community hosted its yearly “Twinning” meet a few weeks ago. You are all probably quite aware about my feeling about Angelic Pretty’s Cotton Candy Shop print by now, so I was so pleased when Katie said she would be my twin for the day!

Sarah and Katie – Angelic Pretty’s Cotton Candy Shop

Adelaide Lolita community | twinning meet + Angelic Pretty Cotton Candy Shop

We went all out on the “twinning” part and matched almost everything. We even went so far as to do our make up the same!

Outfit rundown:

JSK: Cotton Candy Shop by Angelic Pretty, myself in pink and Katie in lavender.

Matching special set pieces: Socks, bags and headbow

Shoes: Gold heels from bodyline

Accessories: Heart necklaces and bracelets from louvisa

Wig: Blonde, pink and purple

We all met up and had a lovely lunch at My Kingdom for a Horse! which is a little hipster cafe just on the outer ring of the city. I was really impressed with all of their food as they had many super Sarah friendly options (Eg they catered to people who are intolerant to everything). I went for my usual, eggs Benedict and got a side of halumi, it was the greatest thing ever. I am ashamed to admit though, that I was having such a lovely time chatting and eating delicious food that I never actually got around to taking any photo’s in the cafe! Oops!

Once we were done eating we all decided to go for a bit of a walk to the local park to take some photos. As is my usual, I couldn’t help but snap a few selfies with my favourites <3

Corrina and Enken – Angelic Pretty’s Sugary  Carnival

We had such an awesome array of different styles and amazing twins I just had to share a few of my favourite outfits. First up, is Corrina and Enken! Enken actually had my sugary carnival dress on load specifically for this meet, which I was so excited about as she is not usually one to wear “sweet” Lolita. Don’t they both just look so darling? I think the cute little pig tail buns are what set it off for me. Sooooooo cuuuuttteeee!

Colin and Birtt – Metamorphosis Happy Balloon

Colin and Britt were one of my favourite pairs of the day wearing Metamorphosis’s Happy Balloon print! They even went all out and got themselves some matching helium balloons to match their dresses. I love how they are twinning, but both still put their own personal flair into the mix with different wigs, shoes and accessories.

Adelaide Lolita community | Twinning meet + Metamorphosis Temps De Fille Happy Balloon

Sophie and Finn – Fan Plus Friend

Sophie and Finn are one of my favourite Lolita couples, as they are almost always matching each other. For this meet, they both wore Fan Plus Friend outfits in different colours. I love that they are both even doing the same pose! kawaiiiiii! ^_^

Adelaide Lolita community | Twinning meet + Fan Plus Friend

Next we broke up into groups of “Gothic” and “Sweet” for more photographs! This is our gothic (ish) group below, they all looks so darling <3

Adelaide Lolita community | Twinning meet + Gothic Lolita Group

As always with our comm, the sweet group was pretty huge and was a mess of adorable pastel poofy perfection 😛 and a lot of pink. I approve!

Adelaide Lolita community | Twinning meet + Sweet lolita Group, Pink, Pastel and kawaii

And of course, not meet would be complete without the obligatory whole group photograph!

Adelaide Lolita community | Twinning meet + All coordinates

Once we were done with photographs, we went for a wander through town and ended up getting ice cream and coffee at Cibo, and gossiping some more. By the end of the day I was so full of food I felt like I wouldn’t need to eat for a week!

What was your favourite pair from the day? Do you prefer sweet or Gothic coordinates?

So I totally entered a kawaii make up competition for a lovely brand called Lady Kawaii. This is a thing I did over a week and a half ago. I am so totally late to the party on this one, as I kept completely forgetting to write about it. So here I am, the day before the competition ends, saying hey! Check out this thing I did! And if you like it, do you think you could spare a vote for me?

I would love to win this competition, not just for the super sweet prizes (Lady Kawaii’s logo T-shirt with my name on it, plus a whole lot of Lady Kawaii’s products), but also because I think Lady Kawaii is a super cute company, and I would love to be involved with the and an ambassador.

It was almost like it was meant to be because a few days before I heard about the competition I had my Jeffree star order arrive! I ordered the Beauty Killer Palette as well as “Virginity”. Lets all just take a moment to appreciate how pretty it all is <3

The Make Up

I had been itching for a reason to go all out with my new colours, and this was the opportunity I was looking for! I decided to go for a pinkie purple look, because well, lets face it, they are pretty much my go to colours for everything lol. To begin with, I did my brows just a light brown, then covered my lower lid with “Princess” and my upper lid with “China White”. I then filled my outer crease line with “Violence” and then blended, then blended some more with a lovely fluffy brush. I have a gorgeous purple shimmer loose eye shadow that I picked up in Vegas a few years ago that I then dusted over the whole lot. Of course, black winged eye liner is a must for me every time (I just really love it 😛 ) so I went and added that next with a black oil base liner and an eyeliner brush. The finishing touch was a set of lashes from Model Co. You can see the close up of my eyes in the picture below.

To get my cheeks such a lovely pink colour, I used a light pink highlighter along with a dark pink blush. My face is naturally always rosy red thanks to my Rosacea, so I enjoy being able to control the colour and contrast when I do my make up. For my lips, of course I just HAD to use Virginity. It is such a pretty colour and goes on so smooth. And OMG, it smells so DIVINE, I could almost eat it.Whilst it was still wet I got some loose dark pink glitter and pressed it onto my lips to give it a more textured look. And sparkly. We can'[t forget sparkly, because who doesn’t love glitter?

The Hair

Since I did this way before Vanessa at The Cutting Concept fixed the disaster that was my not-quite-so-black-anymore hair, I opted to put on my favourite pink wig and do a little bit of an up-do with some cute pig tails 🙂 I love the colour of this wig so much, that I hope to one day get my natural hair dyed to this colour. But we will see, I still remember what happened last time I went pink :S But hey, a girl can dream

The Outfit

Of course no photo shoot would be complete without a full matching outfit, so I put one together that I thought would match the style I was going for. It was a miss match of colour, and a little bit preppy, but still cute.

Outfit run down:

Wig: Long and light pink, with bangs. It also has a lot of white strands through it, so the ends look even more light and pastel

Top: This top is actually a dress! (although, a very short one 😛 ) I purchased this off an Etsy designer a few years ago because I just adored the print, and i thought the little chiffon ruffled sleeves were just too cute to pas sup.

Skirt:The skirt is just a plain white pleated skirt, which I believe I bought off Ali express. You will see me wearing it a lot, as I love it so much it is one of my regular go too pieces for cute outfits.

Socks: are a baby pink colour, with a cute fat lace around the top, and a little love heart sewn on with a bow on either side.

Shoes: My shoes I bought in some little store in Tokyo several years back, and are the most adorable shade of pink!

Accessories: For my accessories, in my hair you will find a big white bow and a small purple bow on either side. Around my neck is my favourite necklace at the moment, which has a pink rhinestone covered heart hanging from a string of pink pearls. All of which were purchased at Lovisa (In the kids section, lol!).

omegathon-omeganaut-pax-aus-2016-ohsokawaiixoxo

Hello this is Sarah speaking. I’m sorry you are who? NO WAY! Hang on, you want me to what?! Me, be in the omegathon? are you serious? Do I want to? FUCK YEAH I DO! I mean, sorry, yes please that would be amazing. My email address? sure. You’ll send me the details this afternoon? wonderful, I’ll keep an eye out for the email. OMG thank you so much. I can’t wait to meet you either. BYE!

*internal screaming* *massive excitement* *extreme freak out* *SQUEE!* WHAT THE FUCK JUST HAPPENED?! OMG DID I JUST GET INTO THE OMEGATHON? HOLY SHIT. I need to call my husband.

lol, that was pretty much how it went down when I got the phone call. Yes, I actually got picked to be a contestant in the Omegathon at PAX Aus this year. I know right? What are the chances of that happening? I had been pottering around the house cleaning when I got a random call from an international number. When I answered it and it was one of the organisers of PAX I couldn’t believe my ears at first! After mumbling out a few star struck almost unintelligible yes’ and word vomiting my email address at him, the conversation ended and I frantically started dialling Riccardo and then my brother to tell them what had just happened.

pax-aus-2016-banner

Everything since then has happened pretty quickly. I was emailed with a consent form I had to fill out, sign and email back, there was a questionnaire to fill out for the PAX schedule books, and I had to send them a head shot for the posters. Man, I think I took about a thousand photo’s trying to get a good one. I kept getting more and more frustrated as my phone camera was just not doing any good, and it was starting to rain outside and take away all my light. In the end, my lovely neighbour came over with his good camera and took a few shots for me and I settled on this one.

ohsokawaiixoxo PAX Aus 2016 omegathon photo

I swear it was the only one I took where I managed to not pull a stupid face. It wasn’t until after I had sent the photo in and it was too late to change it that I realised I have lipstick on my teeth lol.  Oh well worse things have happened, right? Hopefully it looks ok and not to many people notice! I can’t believe my face is going to be on a bunch of posters. This is just wild.

Once the initial shock had worn of, then I started to have a freak out. I had a bit of a google to find out how the competition usually goes down and what to expect. I was soon added to the Omeganaut group on Facebook, where I was shown an awesome video of what to expect and given tips on how to best take my photo. Al the previous Omeganauts are super nice, and I have spoken to a few of the new PAX Aus ones as well. Everyone is really friendly, which is nice.

Now I am just stuck with the panic of, OMG I HAVE SO MUCH PRACTICE TO DO. I have been waiting with bated breath to find out what the game line up will be, so I can make sure I have at least played each one of them before so I don’t look like a stunned goose in the comp. I have decided I am not aiming too high, although enthusiastic and eager, I am not the greatest gamer in the world. My aim is to not get knocked out in the first round 😛 I think it is a good goal.

One of the good points about this whole thing is that I have been forced to finally settle on a tag that I like. I have never been the hugest fan of “venusfury”. I picked it as a nickname a long time ago for a burlesque performance I was in, and it just kind of stuck. Though I never really thought it suited me all that well. I figured that Oh So Kawaii has been my catch line for so long now, that I might as well use it. So I have finally decided on “OhSoKawaiixoxo” as my tag, and as I mentioned in my previous post, I have changed all of my socials to reflect this.

Since I have never actually watched any of the Omegathon in previous years ( 2014/2015), my question for you guys now is:

What should I do to prepare myself for the Omegathon? Any tips on games I should play, or skills I should work on to best help me not suck at this too badly? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

holy-technical-difficulties-oh-so-kawaii

Oh my lordy, it has been way to long since I posted on here, and for that, I am truly sorry! Life became reasonably more complicated than I had ever anticipated and then I started having some serious technical difficulties in regards to the site. Its been quite the disaster, but I think I am slowly managing to put it back together.

You see, Shortly after the wedding, I started having some family issues. I was originally planning to write an essay on what happened and share a bunch of my feelings with you all after being inspired to do so by dorkface’s 2am existential crisis, but have since decided that the story really isn’t worth my time or yours. So in short, things got shit for a while, but now they are much much better.

I quit my job! (!!!!! 😀 )

Which is a thing I have been thinking about for a long time now, but finally reached the point where I had had enough back in August. It was the greatest feeling in the world and not only has it taken a lot of unnecessary stress off my shoulders, it has also opened up a lot of new opportunities for me that I never before though possible. I have picked up some casual work with two different companies in the disability sector, and I have also started up my own business. I have to keep it all hush hush for the time being as it is still under development, but I can’t wait to share what I am doing with you all!

I have also started learning how to code properly. It has been something I have always had an interest in since I was a teenager, and have managed to self teach myself enough to put together a blog. My knowledge of how and why things work though are patchy at best, so I figured it was about time I learned properly 🙂 I enrolled in an online course and have been chipping away at it slowly at night and so far am really enjoying it.

As for the technical difficulties that in itself was just a nightmare. This blog was originally hosted by Hostgator, and has been for a really long time (and they are great), but their servers are in the USA and their prices were in USD which was starting to make them quite expensive for an Aussie such as me. So I decided to find myself and Australian host that would be a bit cheaper and move over to them. Enter Ehost, my host as we are now. Suuppperrr cheap hosting and their interface is really nice, but gosh have I had a time of it trying to move my whole blog over to them from Hostgator :S In the end it has taken me over a month to get everything transferred over, and some of you may have have noticed that the site was down for a good week in there somewhere. I still haven’t got everything back to how it was, but it is close enough.

So, new jobs, new company, new skills and new hosting. Its been a big few months for trying new things, but I am so glad that I have. I feel as though I am starting to discover myself as my own person and to walk a path of my own choosing. I am so excited. Life is pretty sweet!

So what else is new?

Apart from the main drama of my life, there have been a few things happen lately that I never got around to sharing with you. One of the big ones was…

  • I GOT PICKED TO BE A PAX OMEGANAUT!

I know right?! So freaking cool. I pretty much lost my ever loving shit when I got the phone call. I will share all the juicy details in my next post 😉

  • I changed all my social media tags so they all match each other.

In light of having to pick a username for PAX, I did a lot of thinking and finally picked a username I don’t hate. So I have updated literally everything to the same name, so you can find me with ease across all your favourite social networks 😛 We are talking Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr, Twitter, Pinterest and Sing! You will now find me across the board as:

@OhSoKawaiixoxo

ohsokawaiixoxo-snapchat-barcode

  • I started a new nail business (Which is not the one I was referring to above, so I guess that makes two then!)

You can find Oh So Kawaii Nails at the Facebook page below. Currently I am only doing nails locally, but plan to expand into doing press on nails to ship very soon. If you are interested in a set of these nails, or have a particular design you think I should start with, I would love to hear it in the comments below!

oh-so-kawaii-nails-header

  • I’m starting up a You Tube channel!

Lol I know, i hope this isn’t another one of the things I decide is a great idea that then promptly dies in the ass too. I have had a few requests from people on facebook asking me why i didn’t have one, so I though why not?! I plan to start by making one introducing myself, as well as a new room tour video, but after that I’m not sure what direction to go in. If you have any suggestions or special requests, of video’s you would like me to make, I would love to hear it 🙂 I will put a new post up with the channel link once I have my first video up! So keep an eye on the blog and socials 🙂

  • I have started playing WoW again. Lol.

I know I am really bad for picking up games and letting them take over my life. But I had a bunch of friends that have been playing for ages, and Legion just looked so cool, and its all so different to last time I started playing. *Sigh* I have been really enjoying playing it again. Mr Tardo and I have been playing together and it has been great fun 🙂 We play Horde on Nagrand, so If you would like to play with me leave me a comment below ^_^

Kawaii-Nail-art-Creations-since-the-beginning-of-the-year

Yeah I know, I have been so slack about posting. I am really super naughty. Although I did go on several hiatus’, I have still been doing various nail art designs, when I could be bothered 😛 so I have a heap of new super kawaii nail art to show you since my last post back in November!

I went through a phase where all I wanted was block coloured nails with nothing fancy, then I went through another phase where I just couldn’t be bothered with them at all, so I had no nails on for a while there. But then I discovered the magical world of SNS, fell in love and have been playing with it ever since. It’s so light and strong, and goes on so thin they almost feel natural. They are supposed to be better for your nails that both Gel and acrylic, and the best part is (for me anyway) no allergic reaction! woo! I used to have to be so careful about what acrylic products I used or it would make my hands itch, but SNS causes non of that.

Anyway, enough of me rambling, onto the kawaii nail art!

Hot pink Barbie nail polish

Not really nail art I know, but I just had to share because this is just the perfect shade of Barbie pink, don’t you think?! I was so in love with it, this was one of the plain block colours I wore for a while.

Crystal dream carnival lolita nail art

This is a set of nails I did for a Lolita photo shoot I did a little while ago. I had just received my Crystal Dream Carnival Set in the mail, and the shoot was going to be my first time wearing it, and I was just obsessed. This I did using SNS as the base nail, and then I decorated using different Gel colours and some pearl’s I had in the salon.

kawaii Pastel galaxy nails nail art

Pastel galaxy nails! Gosh how I loved these! There was a tutorial going around a little while ago on how to do these, and I swear I got tagged in it on Facebook more times than I can remember, so in the end I decided I needed to give them a go. As the video instructed I did these using various Gel colours, and I was so pleased with the results.

Kawaii pastel melting nail art

I don’t remember the occasion, but these nails I did to match my Milky Planet JSK, because melty anything is just way to adorable. These were actually quite simple. I used SNS for the base nail, and then painted the design on using normal nail polish and an art brush.

kawaii pink and sparkly 3d nail art

These were my “I wants pretty nails but I just can’t be bothered” nails. Lol. I painted my nails a pretty pearly white, then stuck rhinestone’s on in almost a firefly design. They were super cute, but I didn’t end up having them on very long. The metal bows drove me crazy as they kept getting stuck in my hair.

Kawaii Pink aquarium 3d nail art

These are the totally all the rage right now aquarium nails! These were another design that people kept tagging me in on Facebook that I decided to give a try. They were so cute, but the aquarium bit made them so thick, and they eventually leaked. Sigh. I will have to try this one again I think, but not bad as a first go I think! Check out the video i took of that balls moving around inside the nail below!

ootd-the-most-kawaii-puppy-ever

I would like to officially introduce, my fur baby Bella. She is a Maltese poodle cross, and will be turning ten in a few months. She has been my faithful companion since I was 19, and goes just about everywhere with me, including work! She was previously working as a therapy dog for our disabled clients on a day options program, but since she has been getting older and slowing down (and mummy getting promoted into head office!) she now spends her days napping on a pillow under my desk or sitting on my lap.

This post is part outfit post, part introduction and part ad 😛 This is my baby girl Bella, posing in her christmas outfit by the Christmas tree! I am a big fan of putting her in adorable outfits, and occasionally I share the photo’s with the world. In these photo’s she is wearing a super cute pink tutu, some matching pink bows and a pearl and diamontie necklace that I got her for Christmas. She was happy to wear them, but was way more interested in the green squeaky Christmas bone that came in her presents as well.

She is such a cute little girl, and after all my friends saw her in her flower girl dress at my wedding I was told she should have her own instagram account so they could see more of Bella being adorable on a daily basis 😛
