Christmas 2016 Haul
Dark Silver Body Chain
It's a pretty simple but still really cute body chain. it fits nicely and gives any outfit a little something extra. The small string of rhinestones definitely adds to the chain and makes it much nicer and "fancy" in appearance.
Harley Quinn Figure
Harley Quinn is one of my favorite characters and I'd been wanting to start collecting figures so it was awesome to receive this from my Reddit secret Santa. She came with quite a few changeable parts (such as props and hands) which was pretty awesome. The figure it pose-able and well made too!
Geometric Crop Top - Pacsun -$17
The shirt is made super well and from nice materials. It also fits great and I love that it's a longer cut while still being semi-cropped. I do feel it has a bit too boxy of a shape too it, so the shape I don't enjoy as much. other than that it's a really cute piece that's pretty simple so it definitely goes with almost anything in my wardrobe. It gives an outfit a little something extra that a plain black crop top or tee just wouldn't.
Grumpy Cat Puzzle
This puzzle was a pretty fun way to spend extra time and just relax doing. It wasn't too challenging to complete at all, though. So if you're looking for something more difficult, this wouldn't be it.
This was such an interesting gift to receive from my Reddit secret Santa. It's a super interesting concept but I haven't gotten a chance to use it yet. I'm a bit intimidated about switching the photo sheets and needing to be in total darkenss--because I don't really have a room that never gets some sort of light in it. I'll have to figure something out soon though because I'm still excited to use this!
Hello Kitty Spatula
This is super cute and I want all of my kitchen appliances and tools to be Hello Kitty someday! It works just like any other silicone spatula would and just adds such a cute touch to any kitchen.
12 Piece Eyshadow
The colors in this palette are super pretty and are the colors I prefer wearing. I apologize I forgot to snap a picture of it open but I show it in the video above. Unfortunately, the eyeshadows are as pigmented as others I owned and take a couple of layers to get the true color to show up.
FMA DVD Set
Fullmetal Alchemist is my favorite anime so I was so excited to receive the first part of the dvd box set. The box cover art is so well done, and pretty cool even with it's simplicity.
Knitted Boots - QVC
These are great for wearing around the house. I love how cute they look and how comfortable they are. they're very warm as well so they're perfect for walking around in during the winter. I would not wear them outside though, they're just not really made for that and soak up any dampness or dirt really quickly.
Lauren Conrad Lace Crop Top
This top is just so incredibly gorgeous. And while I called it a crop top, like the other crop top I received, it's on the longer side and not actually all that cropped. It'd make a great top for a professional environment when paired with high wasted bottoms.
Mermaid Corset - Hot Topic - $34
I love this corset. It's pretty sturdy and made from thick sturdy fabric. I love the design of it and think it'll be perfect for cosplay!
High Wasted Floral Shorts - Pacsun - $30
These fit so well and are super comfortable to wear. I love the cut and the fact that they're a bit higher wasted. I can't wait to wear these when it warms up for the summer.
Harley Quinn Muscle Tee - Hot Topic
I love this style of shirt and the fact that it's Harley Quinn related makes it so much better. This is definitely going to become one of my favorite and most worn shirts. It's super comfortable too!
Summer Halter Top - Pacsun - $20ish
I'm excited to wear this for the summer. I think this will make a great top to wear to the beach, especially over a swim suit but it's also perfect for any bohemian themed outfits.
Singer ProFinish - eBay - $200
I've been wanting a serger for a long time to help finish my garments and costumes, as well as aid in sewing stretch fabrics. I have yet to learn how to work it yet, but I will be looking into that (reading and watching all the instruction manuals and tutorials it came with) real soon!
Espon Printer - Best Buy - $50
I really like how compact this printer is and that fact that it has a scanner too! My last printer was nice and compact and printed photos beautiful but lacked a scanner part. This one prints really well, but I will say that my old printer (Cannon Jet Ink printer of some sort) printed photos much better--the quality can't compare and I would still use the Cannon Jet Ink printer for photos if it still worked. Other than that comparison it does do it's job and the photos it print are in no way poor quality or bad, in fact they're really great. The price for it's ink is fairly decent as well.
Purple Lace Dress - Wet Seal - $20
I love this dress so much. I like that it has just a sheer lace for the sleeves and the low back. The cut, style and silhouette is so beautiful and the dress just looks so elegant. I also really love the deep purple color it came in. It's very well made and fits like a glove.
