style | daisy + blue velvet

Thank you everyone for your comments about Tiger! It feels empty without him and have already caught myself expecting him to be around the corner. I already know when Bella's around I will think for a second that it's him. They have nearly the same color of fur!

I have decided to work a little less and start enjoying life more especially in time for summer activities. I wonder if I can pull this off because I think I'm a workaholic and I like keeping busy but mostly with productive things.

My lovely and super tech-savvy boyfriend recovered my whole hard drive. Thanks to some of your suggestions-- I went with a Western Digital! The day before my hard drive decided to hate me, I was attempting to organize everything and had over 25 folders from just 3 months. Too much? Not enough? haha





Also new hair! I needed a change and attempted to strip out my hair color. I'll probably make a post about that since I tried out some new products that were awesome. The middle area had a tint of green and pink. Being impossible and annoying.

All of my maxi skirts probably need 5 inches cut off. I think it's a requirement before summer hits that I pull my sewing machine out and fix it. Super short tripping over clothes forever. Is it easy to hem? (If it is, I'm sure I would mess it up.)


RIP my little lionbear ♥




This month has had some stressful moments and it got so much worse Friday. We lost Tiger. It seems unreal because he was just fine then quickly deteriorated. It was too late to do anything and I feel guilty over it. :(  I've had him since I was 6/7 years old.

It was just not the way I imagined and I had to calm down my other dogs. Eevee wasn't even out there to witness anything but she started to shake so badly and hide. Bella did come up to me and consoled me with random kisses.



Tiger has a brother from the same mother, not litter. He's the black fluffy old man puppy.  He's turning 16 in a few months and kind of freaks me out.  Generally dogs live to be around 10-12 years so I have already prepared myself but it still wasn't enough.



RIP ♥

Nautical Design

This was a fun design to put together. Played with an old program to create some freehand vectors. Never noticed how often I rely on shortcuts until it doesn't work in other programs! haha



Minty Fox Designs

Here's a little shop announcement:  I'll be raising my prices slightly soon due to higher demands. Last day to get buy at these prices will be April 30th!

Blogging will be put on hold for a short while. Our new external hard drive decided to turn into RAW randomly. Which means I can't access my files and I have to use a recovery program to get it back.  I do not recommend Seagate hard drives at all.  It's recovered 3 GB out of 65 GB so far... very slow process when I'm needing things off it! Time to get a different brand and look into online storage.. it seems so expensive right now. Very annoying.

Hope your Thursday is better than mine!

Purple EOTD

I'm so behind on posting some things. Went a tad overboard with taking pictures recently and now I have so many folders to go through. Whoops!



PRODUCTS:
MAC Matchmaster Foundation in 2.0
Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original
Purples from the Coastal Scents 252 Palette
Anastasia Dipbrow in Dark Brown
Lashes #X2


This ring was part of a cupcake from Valentine's Day. Too cute to throw away. It only fits on my pinky finger.

I'll be sharing a review for Anastasia's Dipbrow soon. I'll be comparing it to another product. :D


Rimmel London's Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Uni Voxbox + OOTD



This is one of my favorite products lately.. Rimmel London's Stay Matte Liquid Mousse foundation! It was part of the Uni VoxBox :) I received this in the shade Soft Beige and it would suit me better in the summer.  I have tried mousse foundations before and never liked it. This definitely stays matte and it's really silky smooth. A little can go a long way with it. It has actually kept my skin dry during hot days and it has only faded at my nose.



It's really lightweight and the coverage is buildable. Will be repurchasing this because it's under $10! This might be my summer foundation. I'll have to test it out then but it would be great to let go off full coverage foundation. It can almost compare to Revlon Colorstay!

Item was sent to me from Influenster for review purposes. 




This dress is from the @10dollardressshop on instagram. It's my favorite shop on there! I own a similar dress (v neck)  but after altering the bust to show less cleavage, I still couldn't wear it. :(  I already undid my alterations so it's going up in ebay soon!


Birthday Wishlist +

My birthday is in one month so this means time to put together a wishlist of everything I think I need.


1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6
Copic markers, Sailor Moon and aliens. Yes to it all! I have accumulated enough ebay bucks to get two small sets of ciao and now I want more! It's weird that I haven't really colored any of my traditional art other than the occasional watercolour or sharpie. I am currently reading Sailor Moon and hopefully can catch up on the series soon. :D





1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6


Yes... more Sailor Moon! I'll like to own some cute graphic leggings or cute puppy bags. The hot cheetos earrings seem so me. I love it hahaha. ALSO.. there are mint Doc Martens???? How did I not know this? I currently own purple ones ♥ but the quality is too amazing and I won't be needing to replace them for forever probably.

April 17th is actually our 4 year anniversary! I got him a shirt of his favorite band. He already knows since I made him choose which one & color haha.. just to be safe. A little jealous because I wanted one too but I'll rather have high waisted swim bottoms for now.

Does anyone have anything on their wishlists?!

Modcloth Dress up for grabs






I can never have enough floral. I should look into owning other things. Maybe more stripes? haha These pictures didn't come too well since shade was so tiny!  Too bright and hot already.

Some of you already know that Bella's surgery has failed. Now she's in a much more dangerous situation with her intestines out. It's horrible to have to go through it again. The repair only lasted a week and we were told to go elsewhere. Somewhere with an actual surgeon with better tools. It really makes me angry. I was under the impression that they had that already.

We would really appreciate it if you could share our You Caring page.

I have added clothes here. This dress is also up on Ebay! I'm trying to get as much as I can on such short notice. Hoping to be less of a hoarder once this is done.

Right now I'm distracting myself with some sketching and reading Sailor Moon. I read too fast so I'm nearly done :( If anyone has any recommendations for a good cutesy manga, please suggest!!

Rainbow Blythe TBL

I got a rainbow Blythe TBL doll about a week ago. I liked the idea of getting one of these dolls so I could make more instant gratification projects!!

The blue dress I made fits but it's a little loose. I also made some crochet hats and a pink fleece dress that was more of a test.

 







Here she is with one of the unicorn amigurumis ♥

I've been working on some sewn dresses that I'll post later!


Love, Teacup Kisses ♡




This cute booty is on my phone case now! I bought it from Love, Teacup Kisses. Can't wait to show it off later tonight and hopefully get some looks over it :D I can always buy more later. Need to collect them all.

I used to collect tons of stickers many years ago and never even used any. Of course, I don't have any of those now. :( I remember thinking a sticker would be ruined or go to waste if I plucked it from the sheet and put it on something. As if it was permanent haha.



I was also one of the winner's for a giveaway and look at this beautiful piece!! Octopus girl ahhhhh ♥ so perfect! This is going in a frame asap. I can't stop looking at it



Adorable branding! Have you also seen Avo Art?


Orchard Corset's Wasp Mini-Corset CS-301


@skylarsandman with the Vintage Gold News Print
 
 
I am so excited for this! I was just thinking I should look into shorter corsets when Orchard Corset just recently came out with the CS-301. It's a Wasp Mini Corset at only 8 inches which sounds so perfect for shorter torsos. You can view the video to see the difference in lengths.

It has less laces to deal with, come in sizes 16-46 and they also have it in satin & brocade. Even average and longer torsos can wear it :) A corset that is smaller AND can work with curvy body types is such a plus!! I know a common issue with corsets are that it could compress the ribs and/or hips. Not everyone can afford to go custom.




 I currently wear the CS-411 and you can read my experience about it here. It's been almost three months since I have started and I've been wearing it closed for awhile now. Since my torso is quite short, I'm waiting on this mini to be released in cotton first.  It's tempting to just to grab one of these but I would prefer cotton for summer wear. :D
 
I'm becoming more active and trying to work out in a corset is a bit restricting sometimes.  I really can't wait to get my hands on a mini. It looks like you can easily forget you're wearing one!

They just added it in cotton and leather!

Broadway Nails UniVoxBox Review


Press-on manicures are supposed to be easy and more convivenent but really wish glue was included in the box. It claims to last up to a week but these never last a whole day. I put these on my left hand as a test and was able to type for a few hours (surprisingly!) before the popping off began. It can go back on but the adhesive isn't that sticky anymore. I ended up painting over these with some L.A. Colors polish because not a fan of this brown color haha.

What is the secret to these to last? Don't move at all? The box says you can take these off with polish remover but you can just pop these off so easily. I tried a fresh set this morning for a second go and was super hopeful after pressing extra firm on these. It didn't even last 10 minutes and all I did was pick up my camera carefully. Please add some glue in this!





The only good thing about this was that the sizes were smaller and it actually fit me much better in comparison to past products. It's easy to apply.  There's 24 nail covers in 12 sizes and it actually tells you what size to place these on your nails. I'll be saving these for later when I get some glue. 

I'll be sharing reviews for 1-2 products from the UniVoxBox that Influenster sent. This will be my last box from them.  You basically fill out a survey to see if you qualify. I do remember answering several questions and receiving items I can't even use.  It just seems like a waste when someone else could have gotten those products instead of me.


Item was sent to me from Influenster for review purposes.

Shop Update!

I have been working nonstop for 2 days revising my shop's listings and making sure templates were all good to go. I did make four new designs before this. The top two are my favorites. Lately I have been welcoming pink into my designs.
