ToFebruary Jewelry Haul

 Enter my Giveaway that will end January 6th 2010 @ 12 PM Pacific Time
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VilVPhVWXY

So here is a quick haul with pictures from ToFebruary.com. They mainly sell asian clothes, accessories such as bangles, necklaces, earrings and more. I tried to take a couple of HD pictures on micro, hope they turned out well! Enjoy :)


This is my Favorite necklace from ToFebruary.com! Its soo victorian and girly, ahh I'm in love.

This necklace really reminds me of something from Alice in Wonderland. I'm super excited to watch the movie in March, I think thats when it comes out! :) the graphics and colors look so amazing


This is a really cute bunny necklace with a gingham bow on the side. It also has this jade looking bead, a sunflower, and a white bead chain. This is very hong kong inspired.




 This long chained flower necklace is really beautiful and elegant. It demure and sweet for family gatherings. My mom really likes this type of necklace with the long chain.


This is a cream and gold colored flower necklace. This is really cute for casual and dressy outfits. I think the gold color makes it perfect for the holidays







These are cute lamb earrings with a cute baby blue bow and a tiny hoop on the top. I don't really like hoops so I might change this into a necklace or a keychain


This is the cutest bracelet/bangle ever! I love the rose and diamond detailing! it doesn't fit on my wrist so I have to push it a little higher above my arm. Its so darling.


These earrings, I definitely have to make into a necklace! I love love love the flower on this. its this clear hawaiian looking flower with crystal detailing in the center of the bud.


This are the toy horsey earrings. It has a cute crystal B on the bottom of each of the earrings. if you have a friend who's name strarts with a B, I think they would appreciate this piece. I would also change this into a necklace!

Overall, i really love www.tofebruary.com! They have a ton of cute jewelry that is probably made from metal.I hope a lot of people fall in love with your website as I have.

WinterBall and Christmas Cheer

So there goes a bunch of random pictures. Personally I love looking at pictures! I'm currently in love with chictopia because there are so many inspirational and fashionable people out there! It really gives me an idea of what looks good! Its also a lot of fun to share! I'm wearing the skirt that that I just finished making, which is also the one i tweeted about. Its only because I have my mini heater on full blast! :)



These are the earrings i borrowed from annie for Winterball! It was called "Let it Snow". I thought that the card/invitation was by far the best! I'm glad we didn't get the sucky ones again! And on the bottom, here is the necklace that she also lent to me! I think the cubic zirconia is really amazing and almost too glamorous for the occasion! Thank you soo much Annie for lending me the perfect accessories, now if only I had red lipstick on! Maybe I  should recreate that look for you guys! I think it would be a lot of fun! I'm not sure though, I haven't mastered how to do my own foundation yet, so I might just hold off on that thought.

Thanks to Kathleen for also lending me her black and white cocktail dress! I loved it! I felt super glam in it with my satin black peeptoe pumps! :) Thanks to my sister for helping me with my makeup! Although getting ready was super hectic, it was an overall memorable night.  Burritos and tapioca are not the most glamorous food on the planet, but it was delicious food. Haha running to the entrance was by far the craziest thing i've done. If only I had captured that on film, with my hair all blown by the wind! I still felt like a million bucks!









He and I have known each other since 6th grade in middle school! Haha I still remember when he had his gold bangs & when baggy pants were in. Those were the days.

(below) This christmas tree was so big! I think the ornament was the size of my head, literally! I would love to take this home with me! Santa, will you bring me a big christmas tree down the chimney?











This above picture is of amy, jamie, annie, me, kathleen, and sophia!



I snapped a couple of pictures in front of Macys  because they had a couple of really pretty windows! this gives me inspiration to decorate my christmas tree a little nicer :)  I
 
I must end this blog post with a funny picture! This is KJ in physics! He is trying to advertise for this Mango Juice because hes practicing his commerical look!  He is a great hip hop dancer, if you haven't watched his performance, then watch it below! Have a great night, byee.

Christmas Cheer

"So the weather outside is frightful" ... haha just kidding I don't think im gonna break into a song right now.So i took a couple of pictures of the beautiful sunset, or at least what i call the sunsetting in my city, a couple of days ago. Its this really gorgeous rich blue color.



My mom brought home a couple of really cute pretzels that were decorated with christmas cheer! With yummy snowflakes, chocolate, sprinkles, and m&ms. Sadly I already ate the m&m ones so I cant really show that to you guys! I think this company makes some really yummy chocolate covered pretzels!





Maybe I should do a makeup tutorial inspired by these pretzels! they just look too good to eat!



My sister picked up some fake Mac eyeshadow/blush in taiwan. I was surprised by the creamy texture of the eyeshadow and the pigmentation! I actually really love the colors in this small palette. I just wanted to show it to you guys in case I decide to do a tutorial using this palette. Even though its not the real thing, i still think that its a pretty cool eyeshadow. I dont really care about brands, as long as it looks good! and i'm telling you, it looks really good! I'm excited to do a how to: curling hair tutorial, even though I already did one with annie, but you guys requested it! I also wanted to set up a date for BlogTv! I wonder if anyone will show up because I don't think a lot of people know about my channel. Well I hope that you've all been well. Share in the comments what you think about imitation products! I also did my nails today, its something i mixed up at first, a frosty pinkish gold color with black polka dots

Glam Holiday Look & Setting up my Christmas Tree


My tree with the lights off in its glory!


So Last night i finally got to setting up my mini plastic christmas tree! i wonder when i'm finally going to be able to buy a real one. i guess because my parents aren't that into christmas, we might never get one. Like my hat guys? hahah i think it looks really silly and the spring part of the hat bounces! i did a video on me setting up my tree, but i don't think a lot of people will be interested in seeing that.


So yesterday I had a lot of fun filming this Holiday Look inspired by Blair or Juicystar07's "Berry Punch" look found in my Dec/Jan SeventeenMagazine. Its so cool how they are youtubers and they made it to a national magazine! So I did a combination of a purple punch/ red /green/ silver look. I wanna do a couple more holiday looks, but i don't have any cool ideas yet. For the look, i decided to wear my new hat from H&M and I curled my hair with my fav purple flat iron. I got a lot of nice compliments on my hair :) thanks everyone!

An Excerpt from my Heart

"As a bright-eyed young girl, I quickly became infatuated by the exquisite nature of art. I developed the unique ability of manipulating simple objects into beautiful creations. The dusty sewing factory where my father worked sparked the beginning of the passion I felt towards transforming simple fabrics into fashionable clothes. I saw the beautiful potential in the dirty pile of scraps dumped into the garbage bin. When I touched the pieces of fabric, my imagination became endless."

I have been touched by many people in my lives, and I want to take this time to thank them. Thank you for being apart of this journey of self-discovery. I am the luckiest girl for all this support. For that, I thank you.

Inspirational Quote of the Day

(Vivian and I working hard & painting on a huge canvas for our JR Prom )
I don't design clothes. I design dreams.
-Ralph Lauren

I am currently in love with this quote! The line is so short yet very effective! Over the past couple of months, I have been contemplating the inspiration to my youtube videos. After much thought, I have realized that I am truly happy to inspire woman across the globe to have more self-confidence and fun with fashion. I put myself out there for the world to watch so that maybe even one girl can realize that fashion does not have to be a material, but a form of artistic expression. I make and sew clothes to transform the body into a beautiful masterpiece because it makes me happy. I find a lot of joy after the hours of sewing when i have finally reached my goal. These little things are what gives me passion and drive. I hope that whoever it is that is reading this blog can understand that this is a dream that is attainable if you put your heart and soul into it. This is my dream.

Haters on Youtube

So lately, ive been getting a lot of hater comments on my youtube channel. At first i tried to ignore the hateful and negative comments, however, they seemed to grow. i noticed that the more subscribers that i had, the more hate comments i get. I wished that they didn't have to be related but they are. So I've learned to deal with these comments by sometimes deleting them because they attract negativity to my hard worked on videos. I hope that this blog can help others realize that the negative comments are only rare. Those haters are people who have nothing better to do in their lives and hide behind their computer screens with their insecurities! I pity those people for not having someone to care for them. I've heard them all, hate comments, hate messages, hate emails!? When does the list of hatred end. I'm gonna just focus on the thousands of nice and sweet comments because those deserve more focus than the hate ones.

Supergirl - Halloween Costume

So i decided to start a series on halloween costumes! I hope that you guys will enjoy them. I'm gonna be doing the costumes for an Angel, Devil, Gretel from "Hansel and Gretel", maybe a greek goddess. Im going to be using clothes that I already own to create these videos. I just want to stress that we do not have to all go out to buy expensive costumes and creating our own costumes from our own wardrobe is quite possible. I want to create videos that are assessable to young girls. through my videos, I hope to invoke self-confidence and body confidence. Love your every curve and everything about you. I hope you guys enjoy my videos.

D.I.Y Your own Nail Polish!


Check out kathleen's youtube!
www.youtube.com/aiainkiki
omgosh guys! i tried to make my own nail polish and it came out so stunningly! i absolutely LOVE IT! i mixed NYC's sheer french nail color ( a white cream color) with ElF's Seductive, and it didnt turn out so nicely, so i mixed in ELF'S celebrity and it came out in this gorgeous gold color! It looks so expensive! and the pigmentation of the polish was superb! it was so thick and easy to put on. The only downside is that it dried in the bottle cap too quickly before i could apply it onto my hands and toes but other than that, it was AMAZING! check it out guys, and support!
It looks kinda like OPI's Cosmo Not Tonight!
