Paperless Flyers

Last year I made a post about using Paperless Post to send event invitations, and now they have a new function I just used: Flyers!  It didn't appear to cost me any coins to share my flyer via facebook, either.  I'm working with Paperless Post again to share this information with you (non-sponsored) if you are environmentally conscious but still like "official" invitations and flyers.

The flyer was very simple to make and can even have animated text, which we obviously cannot do on traditional paper flyers.

Personally I love invites and flyers as they seem more creative and personal than the general "facebook event" where many people don't RSVP or respond with the dreaded "maybe."

Simple Lolita Makeup for the Lolita Market

Yesterday there was another lolita market! I made better sales this time for some reason - better than any I'd previously done.  I filmed my makeup process but because I was trying something new, the footage did not come out as well as I'd have liked.

Followup Review

After using these Shop Miss A products for a while, here is a full review on the items I ordered:




Overall, I was most disappointed in the sharpener, slightly disappointed in the setting powder for how shimmery it is, and satisfied with every other item.  The L.A. Colors jumbo eye pencils are not as soft and creamy as NYX, but they still work for the intended purpose. I adore the Wonder Blender and the sponge holder, am pretty neutral about the poreless primer, like the lip scrub, love the lash curler that actually fits my eye, and like the mascara shield, though I haven't found a way to demonstrate it on camera since I need to get uncomfortably close to my mirror to use it (haha).

Fairytale Meetup

On the 14th we had our July Lolita Meetup (and oh goodness was it hot!) with the theme of fairytale/children's stories. Only Doro and I showed, and we both chose Alice in Wonderland as our story!


Small meetups are nice because you can chat more, so we had some yummy food and lots of chatting, and then went to buy drinks from a tea shop and look at UV protection items for Doro's mom.

Review: RoseGal clothing with all free shipping!


I've recently made several purchases from a website called RoseGal, which sells a LOT of Plus Sizes and offers free worldwide shipping on everything!

You can also check-in daily to get R points which can be used towards your purchases or at the Points Store to buy the clothing at an even more affordable price!  So here are some of the things I've purchased (I didn't have photos of everything) and why I signed up to be an affiliate
Bat Dress!

Get Ready with Me!

I filmed a Get Ready with Me video for the first time!  I don't know if it's boring because all I have to talk about is my exploding battery pack and the products I'm using, plus my camera overheats and cuts off randomly.  But I had fun doing it anyway!

Monthly Subscription from Apocalyptic Beauty: Spider Queen

I subscribed to an indie brand (vegan and cruelty-free) called Apocalyptic Beauty for their monthly subscription.  It costs US$22 for international buyers but only US$12 or so for US residents.  Either way, the contents are worth more than the price you pay, so here is my first unbagging for this month's theme, Spider Queen

Shop Miss A Try-on for Pokemon GO Community Day

I did my Squirtle makeup for Community Day using some of the Shop Miss A items I posted about in the previous post!

Chinese version:

English Version:

Because this is the first time I used the items, I don't want to give a review yet.  I did use the setting powder for under my eyes and I think it works well that way!

P.S. the headband is from BABY THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT

Did you participate in Community Day?  I got only one shiny Squirtle this time, but I LOVED all the sunglasses Squirtle!!  I evolved one into a Blastoise so I could have a sunglasses Blastoise ^u^v

Shop Miss A Haul

Now for something a little different!  Here's some affordable cosmetics I bought online.  Previously I've ordered from this shop and so I found L.A. Colors lipsticks to be of inadequate quality, but I liked the jumbo pencils so this time I ordered more.  I also tried the house brand AOA as I'd seen it do well online.


This was just a fun video for me to do, and I'll likely post product updates on my blog rather than Youtube as both my camera and laptop still overheat and crash randomly.
