Cash Only

I was very determined, to help me get back on track with my budget, to use only cash for this month. There is of course some bills that needed to be paid online but I really wanted to use cash for any other transactions. For the most part, I was successful and if you're curious, please read on for my thoughts on how things went.

mirukuma giveaway

I also want to mention the giveaway Mirukuma is having.  The giveaway is in celebration of the new Closet Child Value Packs (available until Aug 17th).  There are some really fantastic items in this giveaway, so take look!

Mirukuma Shop and Service Review

A few weeks ago, I was looking around the internet for Paris Kids, and stumbled upon the Mirukuma livejournal and after a little more searching, the website. Kat who runs it is a student in Japan and besides running the shop with instock items, she also offers a shopping service.  This was at the end of July and I decided to do one last splurge before cutting myself off for August.  One the stores she can get to was SWIMMER and after some browsing on their site, decided to be good and just go with the Alice wallet they had; I also wanted to buy an older Angelic Pretty bracelet and really adorable SWIMMER skeleton brooch she up in the shop.

Product Love July 2013

I love watching monthly favorite videos on Youtube and seeing what people think of various items, and I thought I would start doing a favorites post here, which I will call Product Love.  Since I actually got to use and try out a few new things this past month, I thought this would be a good start.

First, The Face Shop's bubble maker. The purpose of a bubble maker (or foaming net) is to create a thicker lather from your face cleanser than you would otherwise. You wet the net, place your cleanser on it, rub your palms together to creat the foam and then squeeze it out. This is probably the best beauty tool I've ever bought.  It produces a very thick foam, and a little bit of cleanser goes a long way.
