It's confirmed! I'm going to Japan tomorrow!! It won't be for long though, I'm only going for about a week because I start university in about a week :( I am so excited because I didn't see this coming at all.
Reason why I never saw this coming is because LIZ LISA is flying me over to Japan to meet the staff! They found my blog and asked if I'm able to come to Japan to talk to them! This is going to be such a great opportunity for me, never once have I thought that my blog will get noticed by my favourite Japanese clothing brand! I first noticed Liz Lisa when I went to Japan for the first time in 2011. I remember going into Shibuya109 and straight away fell in love with the clothes. Since then, I've been collecting a lot of clothes from Liz Lisa! When I went back in Jan/Feb 2012, I bought more Liz Lisa clothes and decided to showcase them on my blog/youtube channel. I absolutely love this brand and definitely think it deserves more recognition overseas!
Even though I'm going to be quite busy, I'll still have about 3-4 days on my own, so I'm going to try film some random Japan videos for you guys. If you guys have any requests, please let me know! I've never been to Japan in summer before, I'm a bit worried because everyone is saying it's super hot and humid :(
Of course, this all couldn't have happened without all my readers. Thank-you so much for supporting my blog for the short time I've been blogging for! I hope to keep on going and hope I can create more interesting videos/blog posts for you guys!

It's been a really long time since I've done a blog post on my "normal" life. I find that it's a bit boring so didn't want to do any posts on it. However past few weeks have been... eventful for me I guess so I'll do one now!
So I guess one of the main things was taking part in Supanova Pop Culture Expo 2012 again. Supanova is a convention which now has expanded to Anime, Games, Comics etc. They travel through different cities of Australia (Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth). I've been to every single Supanova, and in my second year, I was lucky enough to meet the official photographer of Supanova, who has now become a great friend to me. Since then I've been helping out every year as the Official Photographer along with my friend for Supanova.
This year around 21,000+ people came to Supanova Perth, it was so crowded!
The day was great filled with many cosplayers too!
I have to say, this is the most amazing L cosplay I've ever seen! Along with Watari from Death Note.
Unfortunately since I'm now working at Supanova, I can't really cosplay as accessories get in the way of the camera gear :(
Also I would like to thank all my subbies/blog readers who came up to say hi to me at Supanova! I managed to take photos with one of you guys ^__^ Unfortunately I was super busy running around trying to cover events/pick up photos so didn't get to talk to you guys for a long time T_T I didn't expect anyone to say hi to me, not used to people recognizing me haha.
After Supanova, I was just so tired I crashed while everyone else was cleaning up haha.
So my friend Steven who is the other official photographer at Supanova only had another day in Perth, so my friend Henry and I decided to take him out to some places in Perth.
We went to Swan Valley!
had so much fun mucking around with those guys haha.
Quick OOTD photo?
I'm wearing Liz Lisa Spring 2011 dress, Liz Lisa Winter 2011 Jumper, Boots are from Shibuya109
We then met up with some friends to have ramen, yum!
And hung around the city to take more photos
It's too cold! can't smile! haha.
Anyway, I finally have things sorted out regarding my big news, I will post a bit about it tomorrow ^^

It feels like such a long time since I've blogged. I've been really busy these past few days.. and really stressed out lately. I have very exciting news coming up, but I have to wait until it's confirmed before I say anything T_T I'm really hoping I get a response tomorrow so I'll let you guys know!
Anyway, today I thought I'd do some OOTD photos. I have finally moved my mirror to my room so I can take OOTD photos more often now!

Other than that, hope you guys have a great week!

Sorry that I haven't been keeping up with blogging. Was super busy with work and had a friend over from Japan over at my place for a week so I didn't have the time T_T
Today I'm going to review the Liz Lisa lipgloss that Riho sent me.
As expected from Liz Lisa, the packaging is gorgeous!
Love all the detailing, close up of the rose:
Absolutely love the brush too!
The colour I have is Rose Pink, here is a swatch
It has a thick but smooth consistency, not sticky at all.
Gives you a great shine
It isn't very pigmented however, has a more natual look to it. I would probably wear it on top of a light pink lipstick.
Colour: Not very pigmented. Gives more of a "nude" lip colour finish, so if you want more colour then wear some lipstick beforehand.
Texture: Thick but non-sticky consistency. Feels really smooth when on your lips. It has a really lovely shine to it too.
Packaging: The prettiest packaging I've ever seen for a lipgloss! I might be a bit bias because I love everything Liz Lisa, but really, it is the prettiest packaging I've ever seen *_*
Lastability: I guess it's just like most lipglosses. Stays put for quite a while unless if you eat or drink.
