A quick post + Chubby

Hi! Hi! 
Just a quick post before I leave the country ~ Lol. 
Today is finally the day - or night where I leave and I'm really not looking foreward to the flight much at all. 
It's at with midnight - with Jetstar (Not my idea to fly w/ Jetstar dw,) but yeah, I've heard 'meh' things.
Hopefully there is no screaming kids... *fingers crossed* 
Do you know, the last time I flew, it was seven - SEVEN years ago... doesn't feel like it was that long ago to be honest. 

I feel bad, my suitcase feels like its really full but I really feel like I packed the bare minimum I can bring... Sigh. 

I packed quite a few 'mini' and travel sized things, so hopefully, I will finish them off and have more room for things. Kyah

Anyways, this was just a quick post... 

Oh, the other day at work - there was this woman that works there.... 
And she saw me, and was like... 
"I know who you are, your mum is (dah dah dah) we used to work together in (blah blah blah) I met you when you were in younger - like in high school, you used to be chubby, you know your skinny now... but you used to be chubby, am I right?" 
And I was like.... 
How rude!?
Omg. No
I did weigh more than I do now, yes, that's true but I would never in my life describe myself as chubby. Ever. 
But later I told my mum about her and what she said and she was like... YOU WERE NEVER CHUBBY! And then she told me she hated that woman and she was so happy she was gone from her area and she was a very vendictive and catty woman. 
And she was probably just jealous
I dunno of what though. 
I'm not chubby. 
Anyways, I'm going on a lovely holiday with my friend and I will have a wonderful time and SHE IS NOT. 

well... that's all I gots to say... 
Hope you all have a nice Easter Break and spend time with your families and friends and eat well.

Liebster Award

Hi! Hi! 

I was lucky enough to be tagged by the wonderful, Michelle, so thank you!! 

 • The Rules: 1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves. 2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you've tagged to answer 3. Choose eleven people that have under 200 followers and link them in your post. 4. Go to their page and tell them. 5. Remember no tag backs!

Fact Number One: I freaking love cartoons. This is why I have a degree in Animation but sadly, there's not much work where I live. I want to move to America (or anywhere that will take me really) to try and get work but I'm scared TT_TT.

Fact Number Two: Another dream of mine is to travel to Japan during the Cherry Blossom season. I love Sakura and the whole festival just seems so magical and wonderful. I would love to go to Japan in general though!

Fact Number Three: My blog user name is actually one of my old tumblrs. I used to have three, MissBaci, MiniBaci and Lolita-next-door. And one day, I decided I hated what MissBaci had become on tumblr, and I really liked Lolita-next-door and thus that's how my blogspot got it's name. But don't ask me where Lolita next door came from. I don't even know.

Fact Number Four: If I like a certain peice of clothing or shoes or accessory; I will buy it in every colour. I'm not sure why I do this though.

Fact Number Five: I have never dyed my hair. Ever. But I did have streaks in the 90s when they were cool but I started to grow them out when I was in highschool. But I sometimes consider dying my hair a milk tea colour... :/ But I'm sure I'm commited to the idea. 

Fact Number Six: I rarely see things through to the end, even as a kid I was unable to finish hobbies or keep them up, I'm not sure why, I just.. get bored I guess :/

Fact Number Seven: Maybe you all already know this; but I love anime and manga but right now, my favorite manga is Naruto! I love love love it. I have been following since it first aired in Australia and am still following it now. I anxiously wait for each new chapter to be released and sit there in silence and read it online to make sure I don't miss anything.

Fact Number Eight: A few things I do not like; Broccoli, people that are always late all the time FOR NO REASON!, chewing gum/bubble gum and people that take their anger out on other people unnessacarily. 

Fact Number Nine: My favorite Bands right now are The Killers and The Cat Empire (possibly forever), which is a really weird combination, I know (The Killers are Rock and The Cat Empire are Jazz/SKA) And my favorite Song AND album from The Killer's is Sam's Town. ^.^ I like other music too though! 

Fact Number Ten: I just ate some sorbet...

Fact Number Eleven: I am just really happy this whole thing is over. This is really hard coming up with facts and things... and I don't even know how I did it and I'm not telling anyone how long it took me and how many 'facts' I really wrote because it's actually embarassing and I'm rambling and being awkward and this is how I talk in real life. Oh hey! A new fact! Sweet.

The Girly Gamer's Questions:
Which super villain from comic books is your favorite? Why? 

 From Comics... Really?! Okay, Slade from Teen Titans. Maybe... That 'scientist' whose name I can't remember was kinda creepy too... 

2. Would you rather visit Narnia, Hogwarts, Panem, or Middle Earth? Why? 
Hogwarts... because it's Harry Potter and the others are not.

3. If you could only use one specific beauty product for the rest of your life, which would it be? Hhhmmm maybe lip balm. But I'm kinda an all or nothing type of gal. It's either all the makeup or none of the make up. 

4. Which would you rather wear through the warm days of spring: Spring dresses or shorts? Dress. Dress. Dress. 

5. If you could marry a fictional character, who would it be?

Naruto? Can I pick an anime character? I totally picked an anime character. 

6. Which Fairy Tale do you wish you could jump into the pages of? 

 Urgh, I dunno. None most likely. I feel like a weirdo, I have no affinity to any fairytales. Oh wait... I'd totally go to Never Land. Is that a fairy tale!? I don't think so.

7. Do you like video games? If yes, name the best video game character of all time. Yes, I do like video games but I suck at them and never finish them and I like Link from Legend of Zelda because he just seems like a really nice guy okay!?!

8. What is your favorite hobby? How did you get started doing it?  

Drawings and how did I start!? Oh, easy, back in primary school. I used too draw all over my work all the time. But I try to draw something every day. (One thing I did not give up on!)

 Free drawing for you all! It's a cute Hime!

9. What is your favorite (not most convenient/affordable) way of traveling long distances? (Car, train, airplane, etc.) 

Plane because it's the fastest. 

10. What's a personal goal you have that you want to see accomplished in the next five years? 

I want to be happy and healthy. I would like to have my own place to live, either renting with a friend or have my own place, I would also like a car. 
I will be an animator either at a studio or doing it on the side as a freelancer. 
I would also like to travel more in my life. Like I said, I would like to travel to Japan but I would also like to go to either Europe or America. 
I'd also like to be in a relationship.  

11. How exactly are you feeling today?


My Questions; 
1. What's a trait you admire in yourself the most?!
2. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?!

Sutewi Shopping service + Ma*rs Gets

Hi! Hi!

I just wanted to write a review of Sutewi's Shopping Service here today because it's a really awesome shopping service. 
(And warn/remind you all right this second I am terrible at reviews) 
All the info is on her blog, and I don't really want to repeat anything because, it's all quite brief and to the point on her blog and I don't really want to go repeating info or summarizing it incase I miss anything, so if you want any info... just check it out there. 

 I hope most people know about her but I will link her blog personal blog here just in case. 

My experiences with shopping services thus far are... zilch. 
I have never used one. 
Always been too afraid of dodgy people but I read Steffi's blog so I know she's a real person so I decided to give it a go! 

Lately, I've think a lot of people have been getting more and more into Ma*rs... or maybe I just noticed it more often... 

So, I decided to get a few things from the brand. 

Just to try! 

So I contacted Steffi on the 17th of Feb I believe, at night and I got a response pretty quickly, a few hours I think?!
Anyways,  I was told pretty quickly what about what was happening with the order, how long it would take and such. 
Steffi was really helpful too! She knew all the items I wanted and where to get them and stuff! 
And made sure she double checked all the colours were right etc. 
Which was really nice and helpful.

Steffi was really nice the whole way through, she let me know when she got everything and when was waiting on one thing to be posted she let me know. I was never unsure or left in the dark or anything! 

Also, the shipping time was really fast only three days! But I live in Australia so... yeah, if you live further away it will take longer. I assume.

It's nice to know your shopping with a reliable and honest person isn't it!? 
She let me know when it was posted and gave me a tracking number and I was very happy with the service. 
Anyways, I thought everything was reasonably priced for the service and I would be happy to use  Sutewi's Shopping Service again and of course to reccomend it to everyone! 

Okay, so just to recap;

-Fast response and friendly service
-Fast shopping time
-Quick Delivery
-Everything was packaged nicely. 
-Reasonbly priced. 

-I suppose I should put something here... but... I really can't think of anything XD





Got the rhinestone Ma*rs heart on it!

 Lol! Looks like I have a dimple on my back! :D Dimples are cute.
When I go out at night, sometimes I feel silly in Liz Lisa because it's so pastel so I wanted to get some darker things to wear at night and I am in love with this top. :3

I have mixed feelings towards this dress. It's really cute and I want to wear it... but it's really short. Like... in the back. :/ 

And she was even kind enough to send the shopping bags (*.*) and the book for this season!! How nice! I love the little Ma*rs bag so nice! 
 Also got Ma*rs tights but.... I don't want to take them out of the pack just yet! Lol. 
I look foreward to wearing them!

Okay, so are you all going to go check out it out NOW!?! 
(The answer should be yes!

Okay... I promise never to do a review ever again.
