Adorable Owl tote and bright red hair bow!
Such a cute and unexpected surprise! And hey, my birthday still seems fresh in my mind :D
You can see Vivi & Pinky peeking out of the tote. I picked them up today. Rinka looks lovely as always in Vivi~
Lena really rocks the thick glasses look!! I wanted to share this post I found on the topic of the thick framed glasses trend. This person has comments on & translations of episodes of 東京カワイイ★TV! Here’s the one on the glasses trend.
So I wanted to talk about my new curling iron too. I love it! Well, it’s not really new. My previous curling iron of 5+ years broke this week. So when I went out to buy a replacement I decided to get the same Conair brand. It’s cheap AND 5 year life seems good to me :upheart: Of course it has had updates to the design in 5 years.
I have a larger barrel Conair that has some of the newer features too like the dial heat selector that ranges between 0 to 20 (I think,) and 60 second heat up. But my new one had a few more features. First off the on-light blinks until it’s fully heated (sweet!) My old one took 3~5 minutes to heat up by the way and this one was 30 seconds. Also it’s lighter! So light I was scared I’d hit myself in the face with it because I was used to something heavier. It has dual voltage so that’s a plus when traveling out of the country. Also the stupid kickstand to prop it up is gone!! GLORY BE!! That damn thing got in the way so badly not to mention caused 99.9% of any burns I’d receive. Instead it has a tiny black piece to prop it with a very small dot/bump on the tip that keeps it elevated.
Had to try it out of course!
So that’s taken care of. Hopefully won’t have to replace this 1″ iron for another five years!
