People have been requesting this video for a super long time now, so FINALLY I got around to filming it. I have a little obsession with buying shoes, especially since coming back from Japan for the first time! I never used to own many shoes before, my feet are small so I could never find the right sizes here in Australia. However, in Japan it is a little bit easier to find my size!
Here is the video!
In Australia I wear size 5 shoes (most sizes start at 6 in Australia :( ) And in Japan I wear size S. It's a bit strange that shoes in Japan come in size S, M and L! A lot of my shoes came from Liz Lisa because recently last year, Liz Lisa started selling Size S shoes!! Pretty much all my Liz Lisa shoes were all on sale so they were quite cheap when I got them :P
So~! Here are just some screencaps on my shoessss!
I absolutely LOVE Forever New. They are pretty much one of the only brands in Australia that stock clothes in size 4 and shoes in size 5! Also their style is really girly, kind of like Liz Lisa!
These shoes came out for the Spring 2014 Collection. I fell in love with them straight away when I saw them! They are also the most comfortable heels I have ever owned, I can walk around them all day! There is a huge platform at the front so you aren't really tilting your feet that much.
I absolutely LOVE these shoes! Yes they are the same as the previous ones but just in a different colour. I loved the previous shoes so much that I waited until Liz Lisa was having a sale on their website, so I got these for half price!
LOVE these Liz Lisa wedges! The only problem is.... they freaking hurt after a few hours and give you blisters :( I tried sorting the issue out by putting insoles in them and all sorts of things but nothing has worked so far.. If anyone knows any tips or tricks let me know! I love them but I don't wear them out anymore because they just hurt so much :(
These shoes I got a few years ago. I didn't get them from a Liz Lisa store, but some stores in Ikebukuro Sunshine City in Tokyo. I have a feeling these are fake, but they were quite cheap if I can remember correctly! They look really pretty but are kinda hard to walk in :(
I also got these shoes from a store in Ikebukuro Sunshine City. I love them but they are also hard to walk around in... I think maybe because the size isn't right? They feel a bit big on me so its hard to walk in them
I absolutely love these! I was looking everywhere for just some simple heels that go well with a lot of my clothes! They are quite comfortable as well!
I got these like... 5 years ago? I don't really wear them much since they are hard to pair with my clothes (actually, not really I just kind of put them in the back of my closet haha). Maybe I should wear them out more!
These shoes are obviously way too big for me haha. They are a size 6 and I usually fit a size 5 in Australia. I got these for a photoshoot a few years ago, but yeah I don't wear these out at all cos they are way too big for me :(
Another pair that I bought at Ikebukuro Sunshine City! These are quite comfortable but the colour is a bit hard to match with things :(
I got these many years ago from a shop in Perth! They closed down now unfortunately but these are quite comfortable since the heel isn't very high. I don't wear them out much since they are kinda more formal shoes!
Another one from Wholesale dress! I used to shop at that site a lot back in the day haha. I had these for about 5 years but I don't really wear these ones because they are so hard to walk in. You would think the ribbons would keep your feet in the shoe but it doesn't really do that at all :(
A few years ago these style of shoes were super popular in the gyaru community. I got myself a pair from Wholesale Dress so it's a replica, but it's not too bad. My feet stay in it when I walk (lol) but the buckle is made quite cheap so it does come out quite easily
Yeah, I bought them in Japan but I can't remember what shop they were from! They were quite cheap though. In Japan you can find stores that sell shoes for just $10 each! I got these shoes from one of those stores so I'm super happy! I do wear these quite often!
And... knowing me if I do like something a lot I will buy the same item in different colours :P This one goes better with my Liz Lisa clothes!
Feminine Cafe is one of my favourite shoe shops in Japan. I absolutely LOVE these wedges... however the back has a zip, and if I do zip up my shoes then I get blisters super easily.. Need to figure out how to stop that :(
I LOVE these! I wore them so much and go well with so many coords!
Yes, I wanted the same in another colour :P
I love these little boots! They are so comfortable! The fur gets dirty quite easily (fake fur) but it still does feel quite soft!
These shoes are actually the very FIRST pair of shoes I bought in Japan, EVER! I went to Forever 21 and grabbed a pair for around $20! As you can probably see I have worn these heaps since the heel is kinda chipping away :P
I got these shoes about 5 years ago, and I still wear them sometimes to special events!
I absolutely LOVED these shoes from Feminine Cafe. It was so soft and so comfortable to wear... except I accidentally tripped on it one day and one of the buckles broke :( So sad!
LOVED these shoes since they go so well with my cords! As you can see I have worn them heaps and they're getting a bit worn out haha.
Got these in a store in Perth a realy long time ago. I haven't worn them much since they aren't very comfortable but I only got them for $5!
These white boots are so cute! It's a shame that I don't wear them much anymore since they don't really suit my clothes :(
Got these on Taobao for around $20! So happy with them and they're great!
Got these in Shibuya109 and I loved them! Wore these quite a lot but not so much anymore since they are kinda worn out a bit :(
Got this in Ikebukuro in Sunshine City again! I got them the first time I was in Japan haha.
Another one I got in Sunshine City on my first trip to Japan! This one was quite unique since it had another part that you can add to the boots and they just become longer! However it wouldn't go on properly so I gave up and didn't put them on for the video lol.
These boots were actually my very first authentic Liz Lisa purchase! I got them in Hong Kong since it was all sold out in Japan when I was there. These boots were quite expensive... around $150? It's a shame cos I actually don't wear these much since they are too big for me. I bought them in size M since size S for Liz Lisa never existed back then. I might sell these actually T_T
Got these boots earlier this year! They were on sale so I got them for around $50? And FINALLY Liz Lisa releases shoes in size S!! I was so excited!
LOVE these boots so much! So pretty and finally something that fits me well! I actually got these after the brown ones (below) because they had a huge sale to get rid of their winter stock, so I got these for $30!
I got these before the pink, but I got these for around $50? They were on sale at Liz Lisa!
Some black knee high boots from Japan! I actually bought this on impulse.. it was only 900 yen (Around $10) so I thought why not! hahaha. They are actually pretty good quality and quite comfortable as well!
Anyway that's the end of this long blog post lol. Anymore requests for blogs let me know!

Today I'm going to be reviewing some of my most favourite lipsticks of all time! The MISSHA The Style Glow Tint Lipbalm!
I actually received one of these as a gift from my friend Liah Yoo when she came to Perth a while ago. She gave me the lipstick in Scarlet Coral and I LOVED it so much that I used it pretty much everyday! I love these so much because they are SO moisturizing. Also lipstick does rub off fast no matter how good it is, you just can't help it. But these lipsticks acts like a tint as well so your lips will still have the colour even if the lipstick has worn off!
So, because I loved them so much I went onto Ebay and bought every single colour!
The colours they have are:
FFrom left to right~
RD01 Rose Read
PK02 Kissing Pink
CR01 Scarlet Coral
PK01 Vital Pink
OR01 Mandarin Orange
So lets start with the review & swatches!
Oh, my lighting is really bad in these photos... sorry will try on that
OR01 Mandarin Orange
Very natural looking, it's more of like a tinted lipbalm this one rather than a lipstick.
PK01 Vital Pink
Like the Mandarin Orange colour, this one is also very natural, great for everyday wear.
CR01 Scarlet Coral
This one is seriously my favourite lipstick ever! It such a nice colour and it goes well with EVERY look!
PK02 Kissing Pink
I absolutely adore this colour. It's such a cute colour that will also go well with any look!
RD01 Rose Read
This one I'm not a huge fan of. If you guys know me, I don't really like red lipsticks because I feel that I can't pull it off very well. Although it is still a really nice colour, I don't see myself wearing this much.
I absolutely 100% recommend these to you guys. They are SO pigmented and they go so well with every look! The Scarlet Coral and the Kissing Pink colours are my favourites!
- Cheap! These were less than $10 on each on ebay!
- So pigmented and even after the lipstick wears off, you still have the colour stain on your lips
- Very moisturizing!
- Can't think of any!
