New Cute Arpakasso backpack

Image

As the new academic year has started I thought I could treat myself to a super cute rucksack to carry notepads and stationary in. Obviously, I love Arpakasso so I found a rucksack in pink on eBay! I know lots of people are worried about ordering Arpakasso online, but I can recommend the seller I used, Rosy61987 (Shop here)

Image

When the package arrived it was safely packed in a brown envelope. When I opened the envelope I found this. Notice the cute little free gift parcel that was attached? Little cute touches like that really make a seller seem more friendly and personal.

Image

The cute little gifts included some matcha candy, a cute usamimi style hairband, a little pony figurine and some adorably festive halloween stickers.

Sorry if the colour balance is a little off in some of these pictures. My flat has horribly yellow lighting so I tried to edit away some of the yellow-ness so everything was a bit less orange.

Image

I have a couple of Arpakasso, but I am by no means a hardcore collector so to be honest with you I probably couldn’t tell a fake from a real, but I haven’t heard of people receiving fakes from this seller and mine definitely did look very official so I am pretty sure it is the real deal.

Image

This is the back of the backpack to show you what the straps are like. The whole rucksack is extremely soft and fluffy, like I could use it as a pillow in the library very happily… not that I would ever do that though πŸ˜‰

It is a little smaller than I expected, but I can still fit what I need to into it which is great. However, if you need to carry in huge heavy books then I don’t know if this would fit them easily. It’s definitely a sturdy feeling bag and all the stitching appears to be a high quality, but it doesn’t look like it is designed to hold that much weight.

I can definitely recommend both this rucksack and the seller. This is my new favourite bag!

Angelic Pretty Salopettes

Image

These slightly bizarre dress/overall/pinafore things called Salopettes have recently grown in popularity amongst the Lolita community, whilst many others debate if it is actually something that belongs in the lolita style. When I first saw them the shape put me off, but they have grown on me since seeing more people wear them in cute coordinates and now I think they are really adorable!

Image

The lolita brand Angelic Pretty have made salopettes in the same lovely prints as their lolita dresses, but the shape is different to what most people would identify as a lolita dress. Personally, I love lots of different types of fashion so I don’t really care if these are or aren’t lolita. I just love the colourful, girly prints!

Image

You would need to wear a shirt or some other kind of top underneath, just like you would with dungarees. Lots of the salopettes have shorter skirts than other Angelic Pretty dresses, which I think is good for somebody that isn’t a lolita because it’s probably closer to what they would normally wear.

Image

I just love the cute bunny hood on this one!

I think that these would fit in really well with lots of other sweeter styles, like Fairy Kei or Dolly style. Since they are a lot more open at the top it also means it should be easier to find ones that fit a larger bust, which is a problem many westerners have with buying from Japanese brands. I have also heard of replica salopettes that don’t carry the same large price tag as the brand version, though be a bit careful because the quality will be less than that of a brand.

Silver Pink Half Moon Nails Mini-Tutorial

Image

For my summer ball last week I did these nails. Honestly, my dress was a strange coral pink so it didn’t really match, but they looked cool nonetheless. Both colours are so shiny it looks a bit space age to me. The half moon shape looks really modern and interesting.

Image

To create this look I used these three nail polishes in this order. A clear coat to start, then the silver base. Next I stuck paper hole reinforcers over the bottom of my nail (to create the half moon shape) and painted over my nails with the pink coat. Then I peeled off the hole reinforcers (carefully and before the top coat fully dried) leaving me with this pattern.

I really like all three of these nail polishes actually. The two colours are really pretty and shiny, and the base coat dried quickly. The shape was really easy to create too.

Liz Lisa & My Melody Collaboration!

Liz Lisa had recently opened pre-orders on items for their collaboration with My Melody, and as expected there are some massively adorable items available! I think this release kind of overshadows their Summer 2013 collection which looks quite limited and some of the items are not shaped as well as I would like for an item that costs as much.

These are definitely my favourite of the range. I’m not quite sure why, maybe it’s because they are so unique looking and I can’t imagine finding similar ones elsewhere. The print is so cute :3 and they look extremely comfy.

Image

A pink, comfy looking cardigan that’s also part of the range. I like how slouchy and relaxed it looks.

Image

This make up bag is so adorable and looks like it has plenty of space to hold make up. I like bags that have enough space for everything, tiny little bags annoy me so much >.< The lace frills and my melody emblem is just so sweet.
