Super Kawaii Liz Lisa Dress

Found some awesome PopSister magazine scans today over at Ekiblog and totally fell in love with this Liz Lisa (site in Japanese) dress!  It is a little short but I just love the drop waist, the lacy hem, and the big bow on the side.  I need this in my life.

Today's Random Kawaii - Autumn is Here

This cute Corgy looks so happy playing in the fall leaves.  I remember autumns in Kentucky, raking up huge piles of leaves under the big sycamore tree and jumping in them for hours.  Ahh the innocence of being a child, or a puppy.  Now fall just feels like a precursor to yucky winter :P

Bootie Babe Cosmetics - Kawaii or Crazy?

The Muse just posted on an unusual new cosmetics company called Bootie Babe.  They sell these colorful nail polishes in butt-shaped bottles.  The colors are really fun and summery, but I can't decide how I feel about the bottle.  So strange!
What do you think?  Kawaii or crazy?

I Got a New Car!!

...well new to me anyway lol.
Sorry for the lack of posts lately! I've been really sick for a week and swamped with school and trying to find a new vehicle.  But...thankfully I finally found and bought a great car a couple days ago! 
I officially apologize for the crappy dumbphone pics but it's the only camera I have right now :P

Check out that bada** hood scoop y'all!

Lolz Took this pic for my brother

Pioneer Stereo System!
For those of you who don't know, my Neon died about a month ago (transmission issues again), so I've been desperately looking for something else.  I bought Pikachu (that's it's name cuz it's bright yellow lol) brand new and paid it off myself, so I've had a really hard time admitting that it's time to stop putting money into it and look for a different ride.  It's hard to say goodbye.
But I finally found this great 2001 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport at Towpath Motors and fell in love all over again!  The guys there were super helpful and friendly, I would totally buy another vehicle from them. 
I've only had the Subaru for a couple days but I love it!  It runs like a champ, is super peppy, turns on a dime, and has all-wheel drive which will be perfect for our crappy Ohio winters,.  The after-market stereo is awesome, and the car just looks really unique and cool.  So far, I'm very happy with my purchase and I hope it lasts me a long time!

Now I just need to find a name for it...Any suggestions?

Today's Random Kawaii - Office Pup

If I had this puppy in my desk at work, I'd get nothing done.  However, if I had this puppy in my desk at work, I would know I was working at the GREATEST job ever!

『コクリコ坂から』予告編 "From Up on Poppy Hill" by Studio Ghibli

Kokuriko-Zaka Kara, or From Up on Poppy Hill (in English), is a new Studio Ghibli film that just released this year!  This film follows two teenagers struggling to rebuild and find meaning in post-war Yokohama. The trailer suggests a mysterious connection between the two.

As always, the animation looks wistful and vibrant.  You MUST hear the beautifully dreamy themesong in this trailer!  It's so melancholy and lovely.

Click over to Tokyo Kawaii Etc for another trailer and an explanation of the plot.  There, you can also read a great discussion of the impact and meaning behind Studio Ghibli films and even see an interview with Hayao Miyazaki himself, where he explains what it is like working with his son (who directed this new movie)!

As a huge fan of Studio Ghibli, I can't wait to experience this new film!  Have you seen it yet?  Any thoughts?

Today's Random Kawaii - Maaa, Ryan's on my side again!

Aah, this pic brings back memories from my childhood of long car trips down to Kentucky to see family.  Riding for 8-12 hours in the backseat with my brother Ryan meant lots of "Mom he's touching me again," "Mom, she's on MY side!" "Tell him to stop looking at me!" etc...
This pic perfectly illustrates those feelings.  Check out the absolute innocence of the pup on the right!  "What are you talking about, I didn't do anything." lol  So cute :)

Baby's Got Blue Eyes & Brief Life Update

This is just a quick look I did featuring the blue contacts I got as a sample months back when I had my last eye exam.  They're plano (non-prescription) so I can't really wear them out and about unfortunately or I'd be blind, but they're so pretty! 
Heavy black eyeliner really brings out the blue and I did a fun pink/red lip and pink cheeks to round out the look.  After seeing how these pics turned out, I really want to get some blue prescription circle lenses!  It looks so different and dramatic, but I really like it.

Also, in life news, I started back to school this week.  I'm taking College Writing II and Japanese I.  Obvy I was TOO excited to get the last available slot in the Japanese class!  I've been trying to learn for years now and am really enjoying the class so far.  I feel like with the instructor feedback and opportunity to speak Japanese several times a week, I'll finally learn it! Wish me luck :)

My car broke down a couple weeks ago and I'm on the market for new (or new to me) wheels.  Thanks to everyone who's been driving me around or letting me borrow their car!  Totally can't wait to have my own ride again though.

It's a three-day weekend, so everyone have a good one!  I've got a couple cosmetic reviews coming up, so stay tuned!
