what the SHOP?!?

guess who shopped?
well i did some online shopping so here is the latest that arrived in to my home

forever 21

i seriously disliked how my box looked. it seemed like it was packed all tacky. i dont know, i just let it go.
i ordered with standard delivery and got it in about six days.

ok so these boots, now that i got them i dont know if i like them. what the heck?!?
and i honestly thought i was buying black ones. crap! yeah i know i shouldve double checked. blah blah. whats done is done.
maybe i need to give it a chance and wear them out. how about with some nice skinny jeans or black tights? perfect for a night out.
these shoes cost a little over $40 dollars i got them for about $6.
yeah, i dont mind spending money but theres nothing wrong with saving money too.

so, what do you think?
still wondering if i like them... they look too brown but its the flash. they are darker looking.

got some knee high socks... they sort of look like leg warmers
also got a hinged wallet.
what i really want is a sapphire blue Abas. but this one here will do in the meantime.
this wallet is about the size of a small mac shadow palette.


ok, so from ebay i order the 10 blush palette.
i love it. many of the blushes are mac blush dupes.
besides that, it was cheaper than buying them from coastal scents.
this was sent from hong kong and took about 12 days to get here.


thanks to the lovely leina, i ended up buying a faux fur print purse.
this was on sale at tilly's website.
i was debating whether to get it or not since the picture they had online made it look unflattering.. but i am very happy i got it. i use it everyday now. :D
i should get the black and white prints.
so i selected standard delivery and got it in two days.

so thats it.
hope you enjoyed.
there will be more purchases and more photos to come.

love pack round 2

ok, so i did a review on rohto eye drops here in my blog (peep it if you haven't) and it wouldnt have been possible if it wasnt for the lovely pam (xppinkx). she helped me find it (which reason why i couldnt find it, i was spelling it wrong the whole time).
since she helped me find it, i bought some for my bf, myself, extra one for i dont know why, and one for pam and sent it her way. she is such a doll... just for sending some sugar her way she sent one my way as well.
thanks so much pam! youre such a doll! you didnt have to send me a thing but you did. thanks so much... cant thank you enough. i loved everything i received oh and YES!!! i will def. be heading to imats so i cant wait to meet you! im very excited.
enjoy everyone.

Love Pack round 1

it was love at first blind swap
**record scratch sound**
ok, did i say blind swap?
YeS, i did.

i'm certain many of you are familiar with swaps.
for those who don't know, basically it is like a trade.
say you have a 2/3 jar full of mac pigment and you don't want it anymore.
someone else (on blogger or twitter or makeupalley or wherever) might want it and they'll swap it with something you want or possibly they have something you'd like to have... therefore you and the other person swap.
got it? i hope so cause i tried to paint a pic here.

ANYWAYS... my lovely Rani and I had our first Blind Swap. how did it get started?
while on twitter Rani mentioned she was going shopping. later on i asked her jokingly what she got for me... from there we ended up agreeing on sending each other a pack with a surprise.
this here... well it's my love pack sent from the panhandle state with LOTS OF LOVE!

eye candy:

i'll tell ya, im super addicted to the lippies she sent me. i just can't get enough of it.
i totally recommend the lippies you see here! get them! get 'em i say!
the day i got them was the day i started to use them and since then i'm still using them and in my makeup bag.

thank you sooo soo much Rani. this is love. believe it or not, i felt so spoiled. i wasn't expecting a lot. thank you so much again. our first ever blind swap and it won't be the last either.
i hope you loved, if not, then liked what i sent your way.
you're a total sweetheart and your card.... well it hit home. your love pack came to my home during my downside. perfect timing. bless your heart.

i wish i had taken pics of what i sent her and the little messages i put on the box flaps. hopefully rani did cause i'd totally like to post my spoil box! hah. i love to give and spoil.
hope you all enjoyed!

(for dry eyes. these drops here are not for red eyes)
(i will review drops for red eyes soon)

so this is what i got over the weekend! finally! rohto!
so what is rohto and the difference from our u.s. eye drops?
rohto has been called the "hard minty eye drops" which are hard to get in the u.s.
i do have to agree, they are minty. no! they're not flavored and you can't taste it...
but it's all in the sensation of it all when it's all on your precious eyes.

when i first placed drops in my eyes, i thought i smelled the scent of mint.
then a few seconds after i felt the minty-ness. i'm going to be honest it did burn.
but the burn was a good feeling burn. sounds weird, i know.
no worries, the burning buzz goes away. then it just felt like my eyes were full of tears.
like i would close my eyes shut but the "tears" just wouldn't run.

**comparing it w/ visine**
rohto's packaging looks so much fun than visine's
people get so curious about rohto when they see it.
i feel so unfaithful to visine.
the visine you see here, i do like because it more natural than the others
as well as it's more gentle and doesn't sting.

rohto's nozzle is so much shorter but still easy to use.
visine's nozzle gets smaller at the top.
oh, with rohto there's no need to screw the cap. just twist and lock. very simple.

does it feel good?! hell yes!!!
the only thing about the drops is that your eyes have to get use to the minty feeling.
for a minute i was wondering if it was suppose to feel minty and got worried.
yes, it is suppose to be minty because these drops are cooling drops.
contains :
naphazoline hydrochloride 0.012% (redness reliever) polysorbate 80 0.2% (lubricant)

when did i use the drops?
i'm a gamer girl and played for a long while, hadn't had much sleep.
so i thought what better time than to try it now!
i couldn't find the right words to describe how amazing the minty feeling was.
i was enjoying it.
these drops can totally take the edge off when you're sleepy.
not only that, when you've been staring at the computer for a long time.
maybe when you first wake up in the morning? yes.

so what do you think? sounds different from the drops you use?

my conclusion:
this "minty" product will wake your eyes up!
the minty feeling can be intense but it is one that feels sooooooo good!
this product does accomplish what the manufacturer claims.
try it for yourself and be the judge.

*unusual minty feeling... imagine altoids but for your eyes..
it's not bad trust me on this. it feels good.
*makes the eyes feel wet

*some people may feel it more intense than others
*some people will not like this "minty" feeling (because of reason above)
*some might get redness in there eyes which fades slowly
*can't use them if you have contacts. have to remove them before putting in drops.
then you'd have to wait at least 15mins before putting contacts on again.
