Yui Kanno x Liz Lisa Collaboration Part 1 & Part 2

Hi Hi!

I feel like this post is a little over due so I apologize! A while ago, Liz Lisa and Yui Kanno collaborated and came out with a small collection of items. There were two parts to this collections; 

Part One: 
Shoes (Not online any more) 
Dress: Link!

 Volume Two was much larger; 
Skirt & Bustier Link!

 Bag Link!
 Necklace Link!
 Coat Link!

So, what did I get from the collab? 

I got the shoes from Part one! 

 The box is really cute! All Liz Lisa boxes look the same so recieving this was really cool! The colours are so nice and it matches the dress.

I think so far, there are the only lavender shoes Liz Lisa has out. I was kind of hoping the heart would be detachable but they aren't. They're still really cute and I don't think the fluff is too much. The shoes have a really nice velvet texture. Basically, do not wear these shoes in water or you will cry! XD
 Text on the sides - no idea what is says.
Love heart patter on the back! I love the hearts - so cute!

Second thing I got was this set! I really liked it when I saw it so I wanted to try it. To me, it looks very 'Larme' in style. 
(Larme is a Photobook or magazine from Japan read more here!

 These are the photos from Tokyo Kawaii Life. 
It looks really nice online - right? Well, it's actually even prettier in real life! There's a lot of details that aren't shown on the site. 

 The set is really pretty in real life and there's lots of detail in the garments.

 Bodice top, can you see how pretty it is?
 Cute little roses!
 Also on the skirt!
These roses remind me of clothing I wore when I was a kid and they would have this rose on the clothing. Good to see it's still around.
 Pretty patterns and little details
 Curly hem.
The under layer has text on it! This was not shown online to my knowledge - you can barely see it under the tulle but if you can it's a really pretty touch. 

Basically, this set was a lot dressier than I was anticipating. I thought it would be dressy but not as dressy as it is. When I wear this, I really do feel very 'princessy' in it. 
I have no idea when I'll wear this or what to wear this skirt/top with other than each other. 
Quite a challenging set I think!

So, how would I coordinate it? I took some photos!

Set: Liz Lisa x Yui Kanno 
Jacket: Liz Lisa
Shoes: Liz Lisa x Yui Kanno 
Hair Clips: Liz Lisa

I think that this set looks nice with denim and it really dresses the set down which makes it more wearable.

Set: Liz Lisa x Yui Kanno
Cardigan: Liz Lisa
Socks: Tutuanna
Shoes: Missshop
Hair clips: Liz Lisa

I tried to make it look more Larme style. I don't really know if I did a good job. 

I also made a video but I don't think it's that good but I hope you'll enjoy it anyways! 

Ever wonder how to store sets? I keep mine together on a hanger like this! How do you guys store sets (if you have any?) 

I feel like there's wayyyy more pictures to this post than words... :/ 
It's okay though - right? 

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Hong Kong Haul

Hi! Hi!

The title probably sounds like I went on holiday to Hong Kong. But I did not.
My friend when to Hong Kong and I asked her to pick up a few things for me since it's cheaper in Hong Kong than online.

I did give my friend quite a large list to be honest and she actually bought quite a few things - she didn't get any face masks for me (not that I really need them) but got everything else. (Thank youuuuu XD)

First things I got her to get;
Jill Stuart Make Up!! Yep, of course I made her get something from Jill Stuart for me!

Firstly, I got this Jill by Jill Stuart Perfume. I had wanted to try this one for a little while now, so I made my friend get it for me and I'm really glad I did. It's a really lovely scent. If you love sweet floral scents you'll like this perfume.

How pretty is this bottle? I got the smaller size because
a.) I wasn't sure I would like the scent and
b.) it's all they had left.

The bottle is really pretty! The detailing is actually removable so if you want to travel with it and not worry about losing a crystal or a gem then that's possible!

Jill Stuart Make up Bag.... I think this was a freebie/gift with purchase. It's really nice and a good size.
Want to see what's inside?

I got some things from the Autumn Collection! The lace on the packaging is so elegant and lady like. 

The names of the two things I got, if you're interested,
107 Romantic Candle and 102 Midnight Feline.

This is the nail polish I chose. It looks like a nice brown. I'm not sure but the other two look quite pale and quite dark so I'm glad I chose this one in the end.
This collection features black swarvoski crystals.

The other item I got was this Jill Stuart Eyeshadow Quad. It's limited edition (I think) when I saw it I thought it was really unique - I have nothing like it so I decided to get it.

The colours are so nice! The beige and gold are similar to what I own already but I use these colours often enough the teal and the black are completely unique to me. These also seem quite matte (especially compared to how sparkly Jill Stuart normally is,)

 I also got these booklets from Jill Stuart. One has their regular make up collection and the other features their newest collection.

Enough Dolly Wink Eyelashes to last a life time.
(I'll try to do these in order; (L - R)

Top Row
Dolly Wink #15 Pure Girl
Dolly Wink #20 Glamorous Doll
Dolly Wink #10 Sweet Cat

Bottom Row
Dolly Wink #19 Sweet Lady
Dolly Wink #14 Natural Cute
Dolly Wink #21 Secret Girl

Dolly Wink Point Lame in Gold. I really like this. I've used it a few times and it looks really pretty.
I think at the time, this was the latest Dolly Wink product at the time. Maybe there's something new out now, I'm not too sure.

 My friend was nice enough to get this for me as a gift! I've never tried snail products so this shall be interesting.
 I love these lotions from Victoria's Secret! They smell really nice and they keep my skin really nice and soft. I always ask people to buy these for me when they travel because we don't have Victoria's Secret in Australia.

 Another gift! Disney earrings. They remind me a bit of Tsum Tsums....which is a line game and I'm currently addicted to it. (Thanks Emiii)

This is something I really wanted to try because I use computers/phones a lot every day so I thought something like this would be helpful to use on those days when you're eyes are really sore from staring at the screen for a while.

 Dolly Wink Eyeliners and Mascara's. I haven't tried the new formula of the mascaras so I'm interested in seeing how these perform.
 My friend got me this as a gift. Brown mascara by Majorlica Majorca. 

Dolly Wink Mascara's, Brown long mascara, and both long and volume in black. 

Dolly Wink Eyeliners, three in black and one brown. The red packet ones came in a set with the mascaras. 

I actually got quite a lot of things and I'm pretty well stocked for a long time XD 
I think I got a good price for everything as well which was really great as well. 
(Yay for decent exchange rates!)

I might do a few reviews on some products from here but if there's anything your interested in especially please let me know!!

Thanks for reading~~
