Last week my bestie Gabby and I went out for breakfast and we decided to try something new! So we heading down to a Crêperie and Espresso Bar called Cafe Marcel. It was so cute and everyone was super nice!
We also had some awesome drinks too. However I didn't get pictures of that....Gabby had a cappuccino and sticking to my Nutella fix, I had a Nutella Iced Mocha :3 Both were really good! Although I preferred my Iced Mocha.
Ugh I looked so different then, also I miss those girls. T^T But I'm glad we took a trip before Sia moved away.
This is definitely a trip I'd love to take again. I might do it next year or so!
Hi everyone! So recently I tried this Brazilian Spa Clay by Nair. I have to say that it was the best hair removal product I've used so far! I given this product from a friend who doesn't really shave on a regular basis, but they really liked it as well and when they like something it's usually because she had really great results.
So some time ago, I made a beauty/lifestyle blog but due to my schedule and me focusing on Nyctophilia, I had to take a break. I'm letting you guys know that in a few weeks, I'm gonna be moving things and around figuring out a schedule that will let me work on both Nycto and other projects while reviewing things that interest me, i.e.: beauty, music and fashion.
A few plans I have are to make this site my go-to place for EVERYTHING about me, because let's face it...I hardly update this site and if I want this to be my OFFICIAL site, I want it to be in one place. (Geez, I'm so sorry for all my run ons.?
Ok, now I bet you're thinking "But what's going to happen to all your other sites?" Well~ that's a good question. My plan is to leave them where they are but have something to let everyone know to come here of course. How? I'll figure it out when the time comes.
I may even go ahead and move my old posts too. I may even move things from my art tumblr as well. Again, my plan is to make this your one stop shop for everything Arri Darling. I may leave the tumblr up just so I can send announcements to say "Hey, there's new stuff! Come check it out!" As far as wordpress...that's gonna be hard...
Anyway be prepared to see backdate posts from both tumblr and wordpress over the next few weeks, things coming down and going up, then for brand some new stuff! YAY!
TL;DR: We're moving stuff around and you should probably read all the stuff about what's going on. ♥
EDIT: Moving process is already begun. If a post has been moved, I mark it as such.
2ND EDIT: Turns out I can back date posts to when they were created on my other blog, so they'll be under the categories "Arri Reviews" or "Personal."
So Thursday evening, I opened request for my friend to have their avatars drawn. It was fun and I plan to add my favorite ones to an art book I hope to release soon.
If you'd like to add me on LinePlay, my user name is ArriDarling! I'd like to do a mini comic series about my character's adventures in this game. It sounds so silly but I really need a mini project to do for this art book. Anyway I also want to share my avatar and room, it's so cute! and I'm sooooo proud because of all the hard work I put into them. If you end up making a character use my FriendCode: MU-0995-4704
Hi everyone! I’m back from my internet window shopping spree and I stumbled upon this cute store called Fashion Kawaii. With my absolute love for shoes and bags this store definitely caught my eye! Let me give you a little background of the store. Fashion Kawaii ships from Hong Kong, China so I figure that shipping may take sometime but from what I read their shipping is great. I had some email correspondence with the store as well and they got back really fast. So If you had an issue or a question, it get’s answered. Also they seem to have a lot of Korean style clothes and a lot of himekaji style clothes. They also have some cute gadgets too. I saw this adorable handheld fan that perfect for traveling.
So here are some of my personal picks, which are up on their site now. If you click the image, it’ll lead you to the site. However if you want to check out this and their other stores the links will be at the very bottom.
I really like these shoes because not only can I see myself wearing them with the cutest Gal outfit but also with a more formal style, like having to visit my grandparents.
I picked these to because I love bags that can be a conversation piece and I just love having bags no one I know has. Plus Sailor Moon is amazing and will always remind me to be a magical girl!
These two just look super comfy and warm for Arizona winters. It doesn’t get crazy cold in Arizona so at the moment my jacket collection isn’t big but I like changing my jackets and hoodies like I would a shirt. Also I would love to pretend to a cute little angel walking around with wings on my back.
Overall if you have the money and want to spoil yourself in cuteness, check out Fashion Kawaii. I wasn’t able to find out if they had a special going on but the prices are reasonable so it’s worth it to take a peek! I forgot to mention that they also sell cosplay wigs, makeup brushes and I think I also saw a makeup pallet on Fashion Kawaii.
Where to Shop!
Hello again! I’m back to talk about another topic on my Summer Goals list. Number 5. (I should really have done these in order) I also want to use this as way to brief talk about what I envision this blog being mostly about in the future: Fashion and Beauty. Mostly my personal style of Gyaru and Korean fashion. Being a heavy girl and incredibly self confident I always told myself not to waste money on such pretty clothes, but now I’m motivating myself to stop that type of thinking.
Any way I’d like to get into more specifics about the exact style I want for myself and where I plan to draw inspirations from. A few gyaru styles I love are Himegyaru and Rokku. I used to be a bit of a Goth kid not to long ago but that style is expensive if you want to do it right. I think the Gyaru styles I’ve seen here are the same way but where I live it’s more accepted with Hime and Onee since they the pastel and soft colors. (Also it’s Arizona weather friendly, minus the jackets due to the lack of black.)
OK so what are Gyaru styles you ask? Gyaru (ギャル ?) is a Japanese transliteration of the English word gal. wikipedia. As I’ve mentioned there are subcategories of Gyaru and I would be considered a Gajin Gyaru (a foreigner who follows the Gyaru style) or Kokujin Gyaru (a black person who follows the Gyaru style). I’ll explain and provide visuals about this and favorite inspiring styles. (You may be familiar with GanGuro but it’s not as popular or the term is hardly used from what I understand) If by request I can do more in depth posts about these or more because I was writing this, I realized I have a lot of styles I like. So this will most likely be a condensed list.
When I'm not making art, I enjoy beauty, fashion and DIY projects, so this blog will include that along with slices of my life.
These are posts I have in mind to make and it's in no particular order.
