DIY Tutorial: How to Kawaii-ify Your Winter Boots (Super Sweet ❤)

Hey guys 

It's getting colder outside, which means that most of you are either:

  1. Surrendering your impeccable fashion sense to Uggs in exchange for warmth
  1. Surrendering your last four paychecks to import footwear that is both cute and warm

Luckily for you, I'm here to let you know that there is in fact a third option >:)

On to the tutorial  o(^^o) (o^^)o

For this tutorial, you will need:
  • Fabric Paint
  • Fabric Glue
  • Craft Fur (I used two pre-packaged pieces of fur, but I'd recommend visiting a fabric store)
  • Two decorative centerpieces, such as bows or flowers

Start with a pair of boots no longer worthy of seeing the outdoors. This is what mine looked like after being washed, so it's safe to say that it was time for them to retire.

Using fabric paint, paint them in a shade of your choosing. If you make a mistake, use a wet q-tip or sponge to clean up the area.

Depending on the dimensions of your craft fur, this step may or may not be necessary. Fold fur in half.

Cut down the center. This was only necessary because my fur wasn't quite long enough to cover the circumference of my boots~

Using fabric glue, secure fur to the boot.

If you're left with a gap, cut a piece of craft fur equal to the length of the exposed area.

Use fabric glue to secure the smaller piece of fur. To ensure that the pieces blend seamlessly, make sure that the hair of each piece points in the same direction.

Repeat for your second shoe.

Time for bows! Use fabric glue to secure bows to craft fur.
Dry overnight.

 Enjoy *^^*

Geo Grang Grang Choco HC-246 Review ❤ My First Circle Lenses

These lenses were kindly sent to me by the lovelies at ❤

Hey everyone! 
I've been interested in circle lenses for quite some time now, so I was absolutely thrilled when I was given the opportunity to try out a pair of my choosing.

Before we jump into the review, here's a little bit of information that is likely of interest to some of you:

1. Geo Colored Lenses offers FREE standard international shipping.

2.This site supplies genuine GEO circle lenses. GEO is the only USA FDA approved circle lens brand. 

3. Most circle lens models are available with corrective power.

Lenses were shipped in a small brown envelope.
Inside the envelope was a business card, a free lens case, and my lenses (seen wrapped in protective packing foam)

Without lenses (Mascara applied on top lashes)

With lenses (Mascara applied on top lashes)
My Thoughts:

Design: The design is absolute perfection. The pattern blends seamlessly with my dark brown eyes. The lenses appear completely natural while giving off a beautifully glassy sheen. It looks like I have naturally sparkling eyes!


Comfort: I'd never worn contacts before wearing these lenses, so these definitely took me a little while to get used to wearing. The first few minutes were a little bit uncomfortable, but after about 15 minutes, I could hardly feel them in my eye. I ended up wearing them for about 8 hours when I received them, and they were absolutely fine for the duration of wear. They weren't the least bit irritating and the use of eye drops didn't even cross my  mind.


Enlargement: Put simply, these lenses provide "natural enlargement." They're absolutely perfect to wear with or even without makeup. My roommate who helped me with the whole insertion process commented, "You look like a baby!" However, no one else raised any eyebrows unless I mentioned that I was wearing them. I was looking for lenses that I'd be able to wear on the daily without looking like an alien, and these were just that.

I spent about an hour doing this in the mirror after trying them on xD

Oh, tutorials are on the way ^^~
I'm really excited about these. Hopefully I'll be able to make up for all of the tutorials that I haven't been making ;)

My Hime Inspired Eyeglass Case❤

Hey guys!

I've had this post in the making for several weeks now. I'm so sorry for putting it off X_x
I've been having so much fun in school!

Before I left for school, I wanted to ensure that I carried my eyeglasses with style, so I decorated it ^^. If you'd like to see how, please stay tuned for the tutorial.

Start with a plain eyeglass case. 

Gather any/all paints, decorations, and embellishments necessary to achieve your desired look. I ultimately used spray paint, glitter, lace, glitter ribbon, a large fabric flower, and heart shaped rhinestone stickers.

Using craft spray paint, apply a thin coat of paint to your eyeglass case. Apply as many coats as necessary.

While wet with final coat of paint, sprinkle eyeglass case with craft glitter.

Once dry, retrieve lace trim of you choosing.

Using hot glue and/or E6000, secure trim around case edges

Add accent ribbon.

Decorate with small gems and floral centerpiece.

Secure a small bow atop case closure.

Voila! Now you have an eyeglass case that requires another case to avoid damage of our decorations x)

Or if you're like me, you can just chuck in a drawer and forget about it because you find glasses to be a hassle >< (so much for carrying glasses in style -.-)

Ta ta for now my lovelies ^^~
