Liz Lisa Haul

Okay! I found my camera cord... phew!
Anyways, I promised I would share what I bought from Liz Lisa... right!?
I'll try and take an outfit of the day with them when I do wear them... but for now here they are!
I bought this dress, after eyeing the orange for a long time... but I chose the pink at the last minute, the bow is actually detachable, and you can take it off and put it anywhere you like! Or leave it off, if that's how you like it! There is a concealed zipper and it's very comfortable. On me, however... it's a little shorter than what I would like but I can still wear it, I'll just have to be careful where I wear it.

How cute are these shorts?!?! Omg, I love them! I originally wanted them in pink but they were sold out... so I got this pair, online, it says it's a yellow-green but in real life, they are definitely a mint green! When I first got these I was super disappointed I didn't like the texture of these at all and I thought they fit too small...
But I tried them on again and they do fit better than I remembered and the texture doesn't bother me at all so I don't really know what I was thinking? But yeah, I really like these, they even have the 'shorts' under them, so you can be comfy and cute!
Forgot to add - the jumper is from Forever New and it's realllllllyyyy soft!
I took a picture wearing them!

 I bought this inkyami in yellow, I would have preferred pink - obviously, but it was sold out, I think this was the only colour left!? But I really love it! It's the softest cutest baby lemon yellow. This is a really nice (what I would call a singlet,) inkyami the shiny lace over the chest is really pretty and the straps are nice as well, not adjustable which is good because I like the look with out it. What makes the Liz Lisa inkyami's special is the chain detail on them! They are so pretty! Inkyami's can come with puffy fluffy ones or flowers - like proper or like the ones I got which is like a fabric flower. Inkyami's come in great colour ranges too! Really pretty! You won't be able to decide which one you like best!
The chain is detachable, so you can wear the inkyami without it or for washing! Nice touch!

And the last thing I got was this sweet mint green double chain necklace! So pretty right!? Just my style as I love dainty sweet jewelry! This necklace is so comfy and cute! Very sparkly in person!

I didn't buy this online! I'm really lucky as there's a store that sells Liz Lisa where I live, they don't sell much but the day I went in they had $20 off everything Liz Lisa and I'm a huge fan of cardigans, and since I didn't find on online that I liked, I bought this. It also came in pink but I preferred the beige!

Anyways... sorry for all the pictures -_-' I guess I got carried away!?
Anyways, thanks for stopping byyyyyyyeeeeeeeee!~~~

How to Order from Liz Lisa.com & Review

Hi! Hi!

So... the title is right, can actually order from the Liz Lisa website directly, and have it shipped. Anywhere in the world.

 So, today I will write about it and share my experiences, since I didn't even realize you could order Liz Lisa directly on the internet since I had never heard anyone even mention it or share their experiences of the site so I decided to give it a go and share my thoughts with you all.

This is my first time ordering from this site, but not my first time ordering from Japan or online shopping if you were wondering about my online shopping history. 

First things first, open Liz Lisa in Chrome.
I suggest Chrome because if you are like me, and can't read Japanese Chrome does a pretty good job of translating the page and makes it a lot easier.

If you're able to read Japanese, then view the website on any internet browser you wish. ^.^

Okay, so scroll down past the header and on the left you'll see a blue box, that says they ship internationally via tenso.com, click it and make an account, tenso can be viewed in English as well!

Tenso.com is a service that will 'lend' you a shipping address and then onship to you, anywhere in the world. Tenso.com is Japanese of course, but the good news is, the US also has a site similar to this.
Bad news is, I forget what it's called... -_-'
But this isn't about that.... let's continue with Tenso.com!


Tenso.com's HomePage!

Make an account - it's free to have an account but to use tenso.com will cost you and they will charge you, per weight of the package.

I think the service is a little on the pricey side to be perfectly honest, even though they say it's resonable but I'm used to not paying for shipping so it may just be me. :/

The plus side, is you can pay for tenso.com many ways, including PayPal which is my preferred payment method so I like this feature. Of course, you can pay directly with your credit card as well if you like.

So making a Tenso.com account is pretty easy and it's fairly standard. 
I had no problems making an account with them myself. 

Once you've done that, they'll send a confirmation email and then the address you'll send too and information regarding that. Please pay attention to that information as  I'd hate for anyone to lose a package because they didn't read the whole email.

A note about Tenso.com after going through the whole process myself, you can also pay for insurance on your package, I didn't use this feature but it may interest some of you to know, that there's also that possibility. 


 Liz Lisa - LINK! -  is hosted by VENT, so naturally, you'll need a VENT account, since it's in Japanese, you can use chrome or a translator to read it if you need the help, it's pretty simple, like name, birthday, email notifications etc. All that you would expect. 
Note: For the name they'll want phonic so;
いちご or うさぎ

Berri or Bunny.

I just translated my name with google translate, it doesn't matter if it's not right, post offices don't actually look at the name, they're only concerned about the address. ^.^

You'll need to fill in the address before shopping on Liz Lisa, so get the address Tenso.com sent you.
(tip: Make sure to translate it and you're filling about the streets and town/city right) but if you need help, you can ask me, if you want! Since I've already done it I can help I think!

It's fairly simple but if you're like me, you'll find some way to make a mistake XD anyways, it's fairly simple regardless. 

Once you've filled that out correctly you can now shop Liz Lisa and fill up your basket!!

But you'll still need to pay for it.

A warning: You'll need to pay twice when using this method of buying Liz Lisa.
Once on VENT (the Liz Lisa store - for their items, as well as their own shipping fee) and then a second time on Tenso.com - for their service/shipping fee. So don't be surprised when that happens! I warned you!

About the shipping process;

(Forenote: I wrote this as the days were happening, so that's why it's kinda a little long :/) 

So now that you've paid for everything or you understand what I said, you might want to know about the actual shipping process right!?

I placed the order on the 13th of August - a Monday, some time in the  late afternoon.

Well, it took only two days to get from Liz Lisa to Tenso.com's address! That's pretty fast since I ordered in the afternoon. Tenso.com will notify you when the package arrives and ask you too pay their fees then.

You've now paid everything and you're package will be sent to you.

I have to say now though, I got the email it arrived at about 2:00 PM on Wednesday (15.08.12) and I paid at about 6:00 PM since I was busy at work at the time. 6:07 PM I received an email that they were preparing to ship my package! That's fast!

On the 16th I receive an email saying it's coming and is being sent off for international shipping, I am also emailed a tracking number. Tenso.com has tracking. This has made my night. I was going to add at the bottom about how I thought the shipping cost was pricey but knowing apart of that cost is tracking I agree with the shipping cost.

It's the 20th of August and my package arrived! It took about a week or seven days to get to me, I ordered it on Monday and it arrived in exactly a week! I live in Australia if anyone wanted to know so it'll take different amounts of time for different locations, I assume. It was all packaged nicely and I'm in a box, with nothing else in it but the usual paper work.

I've already posted pictures of what I bought, and I'll link it here! I didn't want this post to be too long. So yes, that is my experience with shopping online with Liz Lisa and Tenso.com.

So basically, I give tenso and vent (Liz Lisa) a big thumbs up and will definitely be purchasing from them again in the future without hesitation since my first order went very well! 

I really hope you all found it useful and easy to follow.

Update; Liz Lisa Haul is posted here!

So I'll post this first and try to find my cord and then share what I bought later! ~

I'm sure you're all curious now!!

Anyways if you have Liz Lisa hauls or reviews or anything, you can link it too me, I'd love to see what everyone has!

Lioele Sun Shake Lotion Review

Hi! Hi!

I'm not too sure what I'm gonna write about tonight, I just figured I would start typing and see where my mind takes me...
Oh I know!

I want to review this product!

I will have to get better at taking photos ~ patience right?!
I'm sure we're all aware of just how damaging the sun can be to our skin by now, I don't think I need to warn you all about this.

But I will tell you what drew me to this sun screen, it was PrettyandCute's store owner Janie stating it lightened her freckles! I have freckles and let me tell you, I HATE them. I have never been drawn to whitening before though, but since she said it worked, and since, I figured even if it doesn't, at least I'll have good sun screen in the mean time, right?! Well, I actually think this worked while my freckles haven't disappeared they have faded, especially on my right cheek, one day, I realized I could see significantly less.

Enough about the whitening though.
This sun screen is really light, perfect to wear under make up as it's not  heavy or even oily! Not even a bit shiny, I tell you. (Although, I do have 'dry' skin) but it's also fun to shake as well!

It's got a fragrance, if you are sensitive to fragrance then be cautious but I find this really light and it doesn't bother me at all.

Um... what else can I say about this!?

Oh, it has really cute packaging as well.

The only downside is I think it's a little pricey, not super expensive mind you, but with shipping it can cost a bit, but nothing I'm unhappy with.

Anyways, thanks to anyone that read this, hopefully with practice I can get better at reviews!?

Yestyle haul~

I went and made another Yesstyle order XD
I seriously purchase from this site more than any other site! I'm not paid to say that either.

This time, I got sucked into Beauty and accessories the most, even though there were a few really cute clothes I wanted but oh well.

Canmake Candy Wrap Lip in Peach Shower - link! Omg, I love love love Canmake Candy Wrap Lip Glosses, they are amazing. They do not dry out my lips they are shiny and opaque but they do smell very plastic-y which is the only downside, I had the pink one but it's running out now, so I got this one to replace it!

Clair Beauty Big Happie Hair - link! No surprise since I already gushes about this brand but yep, I got this bump. I hate hate hate teasing my hair, and yesstyle had a promo, if you bought two things from some brands you would get a free gift since I already had something from the other brand I found this! Perfect!

"Cat Ear" Hair Band - link! Oh how cute is this!? I think some people will think this is childish but I think that it's pearl and not actually 'ears' makes it more grown up. So cute! Can not wait to wear this! This was the other thing I purchased to get the free gift!

Jill Stuart Summer Travel Kit 2012 - limited edition - link! I don't even know why I bought this. I think this was an impulse buy, a very expensive one. I once bought the Jill Stuart Valentine's Day set. And I really liked it so I guess that's what made me what this one!? I don't know what body jelly or body protector is so that'll be fun I guess XD I really like the bag though - It's suppose to be a beach bag, and a spa bag so I hope it's good quality and nice.

Jill Stuart Patisserie Collection Sugar Glitter Eyes in 02 Vanilla Sugar- link! I guess Jill Stuart has a new collection? I love glittery eyes so I'm looking forward to trying this.

  Jill Stuart Patisserie Collection Custard Lip Pot in 02 Apple Custard - Link! I must like 02 from this collection -_-' Just realized now! But how cute does this look?! I hope it smells yummy!

Yesstyle also has a free make up bag when you spend over $69 so I got quite a few free gifts with this order which is awesome! As you can see I went new collection Jill Stuart mad XD
