The life, style, and derp of a small-town girl. Dress-up misadventures, crafting frustrations, and little obsessions can be found here.

This blog is full of my face. You have been warned.

 

Thank goodness it’s Friday!
It’s been a rollercoaster week and I just want things to slow down. Been sickly, and frustrated with my lack of progress on stuff I’ve been meaning to work on. I’m really looking forward to just chilling and working on my projects at my own pace this weekend. XD

I’m still not used to seeing nyself with darker-colored wigs/accessories. O u O it’s starting to grow on me, though. Maybe I can wear it more often? :3

Cotton Candy Vanessa is back! (I think)
I haven’t worn anything super-sweet in a long time, and this was a request by my friend Rubi for our Skype date. I’m trying to figure out how to coordinate sweet lolita again, everything feels so off at the moment, I’m scared to mess up. XD
Also, can I just point out the fabulous pink unicorn sticker on my laptop? It’s covering the laptop’s logo, but I have no qualms with that. I nearly flipped the display rack when I saw these glitter decals, I want to stick them on everything I own! My laptop is just my first victim. :D

Knits in Summer (hype it on LOOKBOOK.nu)
Summer is normally hot, and it seems to be hotter in the Philippines. I’m still a big fan of knits, though, and I still wear them around, even during the hotter days.
I love this top, it feels very casual and relaxed. The lace collar details also makes it feel a little girlier, I think. Paired it with shorts just to make sure I don’t end up feeling too warm. It’s definitely more ideal to wear this in cooler places, like malls. XD

The Sweetest Thing

I haven’t shot anything sweet-looking recently, and I’ve missed my candy-colored wigs so much! I’m easing back into it, though. I thought this wig was perfect for that!

I’ve been looking for a good light brown wig that doesn’t look BLEGH with my complexion, and I took a chance on the Strawberry Latte from Gothic Lolita Wigs. Their Light Brown looked awful ON ME, so I was afraid of how this would look when I wear it. To my (pleasant) surprise, this wig was more of a honey brown, instead of milk tea brown, and it worked for me! <3 The pink streaks are a big plus in my book, because it’s my favorite color.

I also want to point out the awesome spiked floral headband that I got from Dark~Sweet~Soul! I usually get black leather and spiked headbands from there, but this was a refreshing change. :D

Gonna start wearing my sweet wigs a little more often now, so you’ll probably see more of them soon! :D

'Til next time,
Vanessa <3

Makeup saves the day!
Quick makeup look for a sick day. I went from sickly pale to normal-looking in a little under 20 minutes. I can imagine some people saying, &#8220;Why would you wear makeup when you&#8217;re sick?&#8221; I personally don&#8217;t enjoy looking like a walking corpse, it&#8217;s not my thing. I like to feel pretty when I feel horrible. XD
Spent the whole day curled up in my favorite blanket, sniffling and sneezing at everything.&#160;; A&#160;; I missed work today, because my sore throat prevented me from making sounds at all. I was mute for the day, I can&#8217;t teach without my voice. :(
Looks like I might shoot a tutorial of some sort later today, since I can record the voice over for that when my voice comes back. For now, I must return to editing essays.
