Tralala Haul

Hi! Hi!

I'm kind of annoyed because I accidentally deleted this post originally, so yeah... I'm rewriting it.

 A while ago *they are doing this sale again!* Tralala was doing a 70% off sale - which is a really significant saving. 

 Earrings in Mint, Purple and Yellow - here (can't find the original link O.O sorry!) & similar - 472 YEN
If the pink was in stock I would have gotten those as well. Most likely.

'M' Jumper in Pink - here - 1,228 YEN
I'm a sucker for jumpers like this lately and I quite liked this one for some reason~ 
Rose print jumper in White - here  1,543 YEN
I really wanted a floral jumper but I didn't see any I particularly liked that much from Liz Lisa, so I'm really happy I got this one at such a good price as well~
I really liked the styling for it here; 

On a side note; these shorts sold out so fast - and I'm sad I didn't get a pair. They look so nice with so many co-ords.

Mock Two Piece Jumper - Here -3,601 YEN
I didn't realize until now that I paid a bit more than I thought for this! I still like this however ^.^ I had the hardest time deciding which colour I liked this most; 
other options are; 
 I like the colours on these two, but I didn't love the colour combinations together as much as the white x navy.
Cardigan with Flower details - here -1,543 YEN
I thought this was apart of Spring at first but I guess not. I was really happy to find this on sale in the colour I wanted however! I like that this one has longer sleeves too. 

Pants in navy- here - 1,543 YEN
At first; I was after the red or teal colour.
And then I added the navy to my kart. 
Erm... to be honest, I'm not sure why I bought pants.
Or if I can fit into these...
I am the worst shopper. 

 Mock two piece Romper - here - 1,543 YEN
I just thought this was quite a unique looking item and I have nothing like it! Normally, rompers look like... well, one piece but this one looks like two separates so it's very different in my opinion.
Mock Two Piece Dress - here - 1,228 YEN
I'm not sure why I got so many mock two piece items actually! 
And I'm really unsure about this item because those types of leather skirts never really look nice on... 


Subtotal 13,645 yen (tax included)
Postage 525 yen (tax included)
0 yen cash-on-delivery fee (tax included)
Total 14,170 yen (tax included)
Use Number of points 1,707 points

Apparently, I used points on this purchase? I'm not sure how, I tried in the past to use them and nothing happens so I'm not sure why it worked this time but yay? 

  • Usage Fee
    yen(Service Fee 980yen + EMS Fee 4,700yen + EMS Insurance 0yen+ Consolidation Fee 0yen)
The shipping cost more than I was hoping for - I was hoping for the 4500 YEN mark... so I guess I was quite a bit off. Ah well. 

So, now I guess, I'll show you everything in person!! ^.^

These look just like the stock photo so nothing interesting. When I got these, I was surprised how heavy they were! I was a bit disappointed but I wore the yellow ones the other night and they were fine - not too heavy and I forgot I was wearing them. So that was a good!

'M' jumper worn back and front. It's a bit longer in the back which is nice. It's really soft and cosy actually. It's more lavender pink than I was anticipating but I still like it. 
Also, I'm wearing the pants in most of the pictures...
I'll talk about them in a bit...

 Floral Jumper. I really really love this jumper. I was expecting the flowers to be painted on but they are sewn in to it. So I'm really happy with it. 

White x navy knitted jumper. I really like this it's super warm and cozy but it's not sloppy. Again, I didn't realize that the navy bit was knitted but it doesn't both me at all. 

Cardigan is really nice!! I love the yellow colour - it reminds me of a baby chicken Lol. So cute. 
Ah! Okay, so... pants! Firstly, they fit (What do you guys think?) !! o.O I really didn't think that they would somehow :p. They are a perfect length for me so no alterations needed either. They are a corduroy material so they're a bit fancier than regular denim but not like fancy either. Apart from the fact that they are pants... they're really really good! Really warm and if you're umming and ahhing - maybe worth trying (especially for the price!) 

 I'm surprised I liked this in the end, actually. It's very comfortable as well so that's a bonus. Not something I can wear much longer going into Autumn/Winter but oh well. 

 Mock two piece~ The leather skirt is not bulky at all so I'm really happy with this. I like the half sleeve a lot as well. 

Okay! So I think that this is everything. ^.^ I'm glad I got quite a few things I normally wouldn't have gotten because I don't really regret any of it at all.
Thank you for looking at this really long post... Lol. Glad you made it too the end :p

[Review] Jill Stuart Perfume: Eau De White Floral

Hi! Hi!

Today I will review this perfume from Jill Stuart! I always really liked the scent of the Relax line from Relax Line so when YesStyle released the 1st Anniversary Collection here. I really wanted it but I waited and I bought it with the Cyber Monday offer (15% off) I decided to get it and treat myself. Hehe. 
I was really happy this collection included the perfume because I always thought it was something I would like.

Basically, to me, this perfume smells like white flowers (roses,) scent and musk but if that's not descriptive enough - try the Jill Stuart website one; 

・An Eau de Cologne that envelops you in a soft feeling of blessings with its aromatic white floral bouquet fragrance, combining white and pink flowers with natural aromatic oils.
・The top note is comprised of highly translucent citrus and berries, a crystal fruity bouquet popping with the soft sweetness of greenery. This light, refreshing meeting opens the door to your heart, inviting you out into an expansive field of flowers. The middle note is an aromatic floral bouquet, overflowing with the sweetness of innocently sparkling flowers and a feeling of sheer elation. Natural oils from delicate and noble flowers and herbs unwind your heart, enveloping it with a feeling of ultimate relaxation. The base note brings a gentle and soft feeling of warmth, a relaxing musky bouquet that makes you feel like you want to just stay by someone’s side forever, and leaving behind a deep, comfortable warmth and melting reverberations of pure appeal.
・Represents the "clean & modern" design concept of JILL STUART RELAX. Fringed with a beads motif, a translucent design that allows the JILL STUART RELAX flower pattern to appear transparent. Comes with a removable ribbon charm. 

Much better, right?!? 

The scent is actually quite long lasting despite being Eau de Toilette. I can wear this all day and when I come home I can still smell it on me but it's never over powering. 
I like that it's mainly floral in scent but it's not too floral. The musk in it really keeps it from being too girly or too sickly. 
I really really enjoy this perfume - if your a fan of the Relax line from Jill Stuart then I have no doubt you'll like love this. 
I also this this would be a nice 'beginner' perfume, as it's not too much for a young girl and the retail price on the online store is about 3,800Yen (3,990Yen including tax) (So say, around $45.00 depending on the exchange rate or where you buy it,) so I do think it's a really modest price for a fragrance. 
Even if your not a perfume 'lover' and only wear it on special occasions then this might also be for you because it's (again,) inexpensive and light enough. 
Also, perfect for girls that want to pamper themselves and smell like a princess would. ^.^

The bottle as well is really nice (It remind me a lot of Chanel Chance,) and it feels study and comfortable when I hold it/ use it. 
I admit that I do like, more simple bottles because I prefer practicality over aesthetics (and cost,) so I really do like the bottle. The little ribbon/charm is removable if you wish to do so, but I think it's a really nice touch to the bottle overall. 
The lid is a fake crystal which is featured on a lot of Jill Stuart Products in some way. I like that it looks elegant and not gaudy.

 The reverse of the bottle also features a really cute motif pattern which is engraved in the bottle itself. 

The only thing I don't really care for is the paper sticker on the front of the bottle. I think it looks a little... 'cheap' to say. But considering that this perfume isn't that expensive I guess that's where they chose to cut corners. The rest of the bottle is really nice so it's not that bad. 

Since the Eau de White Floral smells like the Relax by Jill Stuart line you can layer it and use the lotion or the shower gel or other relax products to make the smell last longer.

- Nice bottle desgin
- Light but lasting fragrance
- Inexpensive
- Smells like the Relax by Jill Stuart line
- Lotions and shower gels available for purchase to match the perfume

- Sticker on bottle is cheap
- Might be a bit difficult to purchase on line 
- Doesn't come in a roller ball or perfume option.

Overall, it's a lovely perfume and yes you need it. Lol. I guess if you've been wondering - should I try this? I'd say go for it.
