New layout/ background

I know it may or may not look really weird /creepy right now, but I'm experimenting with background images, and can't decide what I want yet. Sorry in advance if some things don't look right!

Outfit of the Day & My fish died )=

I'll just get right into the outfit:

  • Miss Marc Marc by Marc Jacobs T-Shirt. My sister got it for me on (not available anymore). Hehehe this time I have the tag so if you're wondering here are the specifications:
    • STYLE: M102664
    • SIZE S (but I really should have gotten an XS, because it's kind of too big! So if you're on the small side and you're online shopping, and not sure which one to get, I would suggest XS)
    • 100% cotton
  • with a white Kira Plastinina tank top underneath (100% viscose)
  • none! :O
  • Very straight, but without flat iron-ing! (= I think I've found my perfect hair routine that keeps my hair really smooth and straight. I'll probably upload a video on Youtube later on my hair routine, but I would like to try it a little more. Video of the night I realized I found my HG conditioner:
SOO, my fish died a few days ago, and I just flushed her down the toilet. She died at age 2 (approximate), and was not very healthy. RIP.

Giovanni Smooth As Silk Deeper Moisture Conditioner (for damaged hair)


Definitely my (first) and new Holy Grail Conditioner. I mentioned this in my review for the Biosilk Hydrating Conditioner, and I've kind of been meaning on review it, so here's my REALLY quick Youtube ramble:

I'll add more details later, but you get the idea, right? (;

Forever 21 Necklace HAUL!

In a previous post, I put up pictures of Forever 21 Necklaces that I adored. Well, finally, I got some! (6 to be exact) and the best part: 3 of them were only $1.50! I don't think you can beat that anywhere.

Polish I have on my nails (in the video below):

"Only Gold for Me" Top Coat by OPI for Sephora

Rush Sensories Brilliance Leave In Conditioning Spray Review

I had been looking for a good leave-in Conditioner to tame frizziness, smooth hair, and protect my highlights. This is what the bottle promised, but I'm not sure if it works as well as it claims.

It's a very good detangler, but only that, I'm afraid. It smooths my hair because it detangles it. As for color-protecting, my highlights aren't fading any faster or slower.

3 out of 5 stars


CHI Silk Infusion vs. Biosilk Silk Therapy Serums

I've been wanting to do a compare/contrast on this for quite a while. I'll get right to the point:

  • Great heat protectant for straightening hair
  • Smooths and adds shine BETTER than the CHI, so I would use it on straight hair.

Chanel's temporary tattoos

I'm quite shocked that I haven't blogged about this yet. I found out about Chanel's line of temporary tattoos (55 for $75) about 5 months ago from the June/July issue of Seventeen Magazine (Ashley Greene wore one on the cover photo).

Why am I surprised I didn't blog about this waay back then? BECAUSE I'VE BEEN IN LOVE WITH THEM SINCE I FIRST SAW THEM! Through them, I have realized that I am a HUGE fan of bird/swallow tattoos! and none of them are as classy as the Chanel one.

But to be honest, even if I had the money to buy them, I'm not sure I would want to since they are only temporary. You'd think that since they're from Chanel, they would be, I don't know, not so temporary? But temporary tattoos are temporary tattoos, and they forever will be, because I heard that they wash off in one shower. )=

I guess I'll just have to admire them in pictures.

Polaroids + "Outfit of the Day"

I am falling back in love with my Polaroid camera and Polaroid pictures! The top right picture is my favorite because of the angle/lighting/weird focus, except my legs got cut off by my stool >:O. So I tried to re-create it in my second picture (the top left one) but it just didn't come out the same. I took the last picture (bottom one) because I had one more polaroid film left in the camera.

ANYWAY, this really isn't my Outfit of the Day, it's my Outfit of Another Day. It's a business-y and semi-formal but at the same time casual look. Good for: interviews or when I am an ambassador. (We have this ambassador program at school for when colleges come to visit and a student of our school is the ambassador for them. Ambassadors for our school are required to dress nicely when their assigned colleges come to visit.)

What I'm wearing:

  • off-white Marc by Marc Jacobs ruffle button-up short-sleeved cotton blouse (sorry, I don't know the exact name!) with 
  • a dark blue Hollister ruffle tank underneath
(except in dark blue)
  • dark blue high-waisted band skirt by Miley Cyrus and Max Azria (from the clearance section at Walmart for $3!)

Hair: Half up (criss-crossing bobby pins in the back)
  • Purple feather earrings from my friend Vivian!
  • Wood peace-sign necklace (that I wear almost everyday because it makes me feel more secure) from my friend Michelle!

    Clean and Clear Morning Burst In Shower Facial Review

    I finally got around to reviewing this in-shower facial that everyone had raved about. Unfortunately, it didn't work for my skin. )=

    1.2 out of 5 stars. (Because it smells good and makes my skin tingle.) 

    NOTE: *This is the Clean and Clear MORNING BURST In Shower Facial. It is different from the Clean and Clear SOFT In Shower Facial. I have also heard many great things about that one, but I'm not sure if I want to try that one since this one didn't work so well for me. =/

    Video review!

    Katy Perry copied my hair :O

    Katy Perry has purple streaks now! :O She copied me! Hahaha You can see it really clearly at the end of her new music video for Fireworks. Her hair looks veeerryyy pretty. (=

    And can I just point out that two months ago, when she appeared as a musical guest star on SNL, she had purple AND turquoise streaks, which looked like MY hair back in April!

    So it's been..

    quite a while since I've done a product review! I've been meaning to review my Cortex Flat Iron (in Zebra Print) that was in my How to curl hair video for over 2 months!

    I promise a review on that will be coming shortly. In the mean time, my dear father brought me back a large amount of earrings from China! A lot of them are really cute, and since there are so many, I was thinking of doing some sort of giveaway. I should probably wait until I have more subscribers on Youtube and more followers on here. I'm just a bit excited to do my first giveaway though!!

    I want to be some sort of jewelry/accessory designer in the (hopefully) near future. So be on the look out for jewelry by Cindy within the next (oh, I don't know..) five years or so.

    I've got to get crackin' on my History homework now. Toodles!
