Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara Review

I currently don't have anything at home that can take off my Maybelline Falsies mascara (in waterproof) without making me look like a panda. Because of this, I decided to go out and buy a non-waterproof one. Instead of picking up a non-waterproof version of my HG mascara I ended up with this:

Rimmel Lash Accelrator: Mascara with/avec grow-lash complex. My curiosity makes me wanted to try new things hehee. I picked this up at Savers for only £5; that's I about £4 cheaper than it's average price :D :D :D

NOTD: Rawr

I got a bit bored of my gold nails I had for my NOTD a few days ago so I thought I'd spice them up a bit [:

Some of you may be thinking "I thought you said you left all your polishes in uni...did you go out to buy more??" The answer: nope. The leopard pattern was actually painted on with acrylic paints! I used to always paint with acrylics when I studied art and knowing that they dry to a waterproof finish I thought why not try it out :)

Well that's all for now!

It's Christmas!!

Last night my parents came home from work with a gift from a girl that works at their shop; homemade Christmas cupcakes! They're so adorable I just had to take some pictures and blog about them ( >w< )

None of us dares to eat them; they're too cute :'D

What did you get for Christmas??
Hope everyone's having a wonderful day! Merry Christmas ( ^__^ )

NOTD: I Made It (Tutorial)

With Christmas coming I wanted to paint my nails a festival colour . . .

Instead of the average red I decided to go for gold. And you know what? I made that colour *proud*. Unfortunately left my box of polishes in university, so I took this opportunity to make some colours I do not own. I learnt how to make your own nail polishes from reading a girls magazine many years ago and I'm gonna show you how in this post!

Review: Neo Cosmo Glamour (Blue)

Hey guys I'm finally back home for the Christmas holidays so hopefully I'll be able to update more in the next few weeks! To kick start things I'm going to be reviewing my Neo Cosmo Glamour lenses in blue. I ordered these from which some of you may know from reading one of my previous posts.

Now onto the reviews!

♪ Lense Review 

~ Enlargement: 2/5

~ Colour: 3/5

~ Naturalness: 4.5/5

~ Comfort: 4.9/5

When I was doing my "research" for my next pair of circle lenses, I wasn't a big fan of the whole jaggedy edges eventhough I read that they make the lenses look more natural which was what I was looking for. The jagged edges slowly grew onto me so I ended up ordering them and I'm so glad I did; it really does make the lenses look and blend in naturally (when someones not looking at you close up)! When I finally got my lenses the first thing I notices about them was how soft they were when I took them out of the bottles to soak; there were as soft as my normal contact lenses! Trying them on there were a dream. Comfiest. Lenses. EVER. Again, they were just like my regular contacts. A natural looking pair of comfy circle lenses; sounds perfect! However there is one slight let down which is the colour of these lenses. I do like the colour but being labeled "blue" I would have liked it to be more of a true blue. In my opinion the colour is more a grey-blue and sometimes just look plain grey in certain lighting. Despite saying that I still love these lenses :3


♪ Company Review (Shoppingholics) 

I ordered just before I went off to uni (which was around September time) so I honestly can't remember my thoughts on Shoppingholics lol! I revisited the page today and it still had the same cute layout as I remembered. As for shipping and payment, it most probably was straight forward and came on time. If I did have a bad experience with them then I would have remembered so thumbs up for Shoppingholics! One thing I do remember is the packaging, freebies and thank you card which was so sweet. Attention to detail like this really makes me happy and I sure other customers felt the same too :)

To summarize Shoppingholics: A super sweet company. APPROVED ( ^.^ )


And now to finish to this post off, an tiny bit of camerawhoring with my lenses ( =w= )

See how my eyes look more grey rather than blue ( ^__^" )

Blog to you soon!

NOTD: Neapolitan Ice Cream

Just doing some late night blogging to keep my blog alive. I had quite a bit of "me time" yesterday so I did my nails for the first time in ages. I thought I'd try out doing some simple nail art :D

My nails sort of match my purse! The colours were inspired by the colour scheme of a knit sample I made for the knit rotation on my course.

That's all for now ( n__n )

Package Haul

Long time no blog, so let's get cracking! I'll allow the photos to do most of the explaining :)

New lenses: Neo Cosmo Glamour Blue

Skin79 The Oriental Gold BB Cream

These two items were ordered from But maaaaan, they really like to pack in the freebies (which I'm not complaining about hehee)

What I received. The bb cream, lenses (they're in the box) PLUS two hair velcros, a pair of eye masks and a ring!


I also won a contest about a month ago which was hosted by Georgie who I'd like to thank :D

Prizes woo~! I can't wait to try out the stuff! Once again a BIG thank you to Georgie ( n__n )


Well that's all I have to say for now. All I've really been doing nowadays is socializing and doing my course. Being the poor student I've become I don't really do any form of shopping apart from grocery and sometimes fancy dress for parties. I'm afraid I won't be doing hauls anytime soon :\ Unless I decide to do a food haul haha~!

Catch you guys soon hopefully :3

Reviving My Blog

Hey guys just a quick update to say that I am still alive! I would also like to apologize for not posting in so long D:

Anyway if you didn't know already, I'm now studying and living in uni~! I have been here now for exactly one month and three days (yaay!) I'm really enjoying my time here; met loads of friendly people, I'm liking my course plus the partaaays. Life is pretty sweet at the moment :3

However, because of the various things going on in university, I can't seem to find time to blog as much as I could when I used to live at home. But don't worry guys! I WILL try to update when I can. In the time I've gone I've managed to gain more views than usual and a few more followers. I know I don't have THAT many followers at the moment; but it makes me happy that there are some people out there who are actually interested in reading this blog. I really appreciate it so I'd like to say thanks to my followers and you people who have stopped by and taken some time to read my posts ( ^_^ )


To end this post I thought I'd show you a picture of my room in uni :)

Well . . . just the bed at the moment. If you know me you'll know that this photo was a total set up. My rooms a bit of a state ( ^///^" )

Beauty Haul: Summer Holiday Obsessions

My summer holiday is nearly over (uni soon yay!) and I've notices that in terms of cosmetics I've developed a slight interest in lip products:

Paris: Hotel Tour

A few days ago my boyfriend and I visited Paris. We spent a total of three days (technically four if you include the day we left) there and the trip was overall really good ( ^__^ ) Unfortunately I didn't get many pictures since my phone/camera ran out of battery power early on during our holiday and neither of us packed a converter plug *sobs* Judging from the blog title you can probably tell I did capture some shot of our hotel so let's get on with the tour :)

Jing-Jing's Junk #12: Hoarding Kitty

Currently listening to: zombie - Versailles

Gosh I haven't done a junk post in ages. I haven't really had a serious room tidy up in a while to be honest. I've been too lazy haha~! Time to throw something out!

Today I got rid of an empty Hello Kitty sweet tube. It used to contain one of my favourite Asian snacks; choclate covered jellies! Pretty sure I bought these in Hong Kong so this has been laying around in my room for quite some time. What can I say, I love cute packaging xP


Whilst tidying my room I noticed I had quite a lot of Hello Kitty stuff. I can't say I'm a massive fan of Hello Kitty (though I do sometimes freak out a little when I see her (>w<) ) so I was pretty surprized by the size of my "collection".

Catching up with Technology

Oh yes, I've final bought myself a laptop. I literally just received this in the post two hours ago. I am now very poor but happy at the same time: I've got my very first laptop EVER.


Thursday, 11 August 2011


Currently listening to: Fascination - Alpabeat
Hehee I did say I'd do the song thing (: 

FFXIII game onto because we received it on the same day as the YESSTYLE order, plus to cover up our address :P

Let's get reviewing!

I can't sleep *sad face*

Ugh why did I nap :'D I didn't want to leave my room (eventhough I've ended up coming downstairs to blog) so I decided to get my creative juice flowing and did some drawing :)

Taa-daa~! Yeep it's nowhere near finished. My pencils went blunt and I couldn't be bothered to go search for a sharpener or more pencils ( =w=" ) This was drawn using HB and B grade pencils plus a not-so-good rubber (aka an eraser for the non-Brits out there). I'd say I spent roughly 1.5 hours on it.  Because I didn't scan this, was drawing whilst laying down and having not drawn for in while . . . it's might look kind of skewed ( ^_^" )

Despite all this can you guess who this girl is??
I'll reveal the answer when I've finish reworking and shading the drawing (:


This post is a little on the short side so I figured I'd talk a little about music since I don't think I've ever mentioned it on this blog. Listening to music helps me concentrate so here are the last ten songs I listened to on my iPod whilst I drew:

♪ #10: 
Tetris - Plastic Tree
♪ #9 : Chizuru - the GazettE
 #8 : Koi no Megalover - MAXIMUM THE HORMONE
♪ #7 : Like a G6 - Far East Movement
♪ #6 : We Are Always Searching - I Am Ghost 
♪ #5 : Karma - Bump of Chicken
♪ #4 : River Below - Billy Talent
♪ #3 : ET - Katy Perry
♪ #2 [Goku] - Girugamesh
♪ #1 : Beautiful Dirt - Dir en grey

Sorry if you think my music taste suck lolol. 
My iPod was on shuffle by the way :P I'm quite happy with the list and don't think I actually skipped any of the song. After all, the songs are on my iPod because I like them so I have no shame >:D The list could've been longer but it would take too long to type, plus it could also make my music taste look worse . . . but then again it could make it look good too xD


Maybe I'll start doing that thing where you post the song you're listening to whilst blogging.
For me it's currently "H.A.N.A.B.I." by Alice Nine :P

I better get some sleep so bye for nao~!

OFOTD: Alterations

Ahhh I have been gaming quite a bit like I predicted in my last entry so sorry about the slight delay in posting. Asides from playing on FFXII, Castle Crashers and Super Mario Galaxy I have been sewing every now and again during the past week and a bit :) This leads me onto my outfit of the day:

I *heart* HK top and black denim shorts. Yep this outfit is pretty simple since I didn't go out today. Both of these were altered and I just finished the shorts today :D . I'm pretty pleased with the outcome. Please ignore my bad tan line on my legs (any cures ( >_< ) ? )


Anyway moving on just a little, here's a photo for this outfit before I altered it . . .

Small person + oversized clothes = makes the person even smaller ( TT o TT ) I think I prefer the altered version hahaa.


I'm afraid that's all I have to say for today. However I did get my YESSTYLE order a few days ago so I'm going to start working on a post on that after publishing this one :3

Stay tuned ( ^_^ )

My Gaming To-do List

Let's ramble about games today! I feel my blog has been pretty beauty related recently so I'm gonna take a break from that. This post is also going to act as a warning in case of a possible hiatus if I get too carried away with gaming :P


I've always been into games from a young age and since it's the summer holidays, why not go game crazy?! Here are some games I plan to complete . . .
