The First Wave of Hauls
I've been such a shopaholic lately! And the first batch just arrived. Here we have: an outfit from Lenivka on Etsy, a Sylvanian Families furniture from Amiami and a Meike extension tube from Ebay.
There were wire wings included with the Lenivka outfit and the package for the wings came with this awesome note! :D I instantly thought of Velvet when I saw this, I dunno why...
All the items of the Lenivka outfit can be worn at once, but I knew I would use this underskirt separately, since it was just the right colour and style for both Lumina and Ford. But since I got another outfit coming in for Fordy, Lumina got to wear this one first. It looks so light and summery! ...It is also open at the back XD But that is why she's also wearing that waistcloth from the Ai outfit set.
Here is the rest of the outfit. It is a nice bright turquoise which doesn't really match any of my dolls so I had a hard time deciding who would model it. But I think Meringue actually pulls it off. I thought the colour would be too dark on her, but it isn't.
And here are the little fairy wings ^-^ I really like them, although I usually don't go for these kinds of strap-on wings.
Now onto the Sylvanian Families set. I read that they were mostly in scale for Nendos, so I wanted to try them out. I bought this cheapish set (like 15€?) that would decorate a bedroom.
It is actually a very nice scale for a Nendo! Nyaru-chan likes her new bed ^-^
At first I thought I'd go for one of the Sylvanian Families houses to set up for the Nendos. But in the end I thought I'd rather make my own set, using the floor tutorial Fantasywoods posted about before. Open walls would allow for more light = more photo opportunities, me thinks? Although a set of those houses would be awefully cute too. I've seen some post their Nendos living in them on Flickr.
Btw, if anyone needs this pajama outfit, let me know and we'll see how to get it to you. I have no need for it. It seems to be 1/12 scale? So maybe for a Lati Yellow or smaller?
Not all my purhases have been online though. The pink cake plate you can see in the Lenivka outfit photos was bought from a loal Tiger, as well as this clear plastic make-up holder. This was such an amazing thing to find! I've hated my make-up bags for ages, since it is so hard to find what I'm looking for. In this holder I can instantly grab that eyeliner, mascara etc. Now I need a slightly bigger one to hold my larger make-ups, like consealant and blush.
I've splurged quite a bit of money on cosmetics/hair products lately, and there are still some items I need to get. See , after I bleached my hair, I've needed pigmented shampoo and colour masks to keep it from going all yellow. And since I also cut it, I now need more hair products to keep it in shape, like hair powder and dry shampoo. I still need to buy salt spray...
And on the cosmetics side, I finally woke up to taking a better care for my skin. I read about the Korean skincare routine and I want to give it a try, mostly to see if I can actually follow it long-term. So far it has mostly been cleansing milk, toner/wash and moisturiser for me, when I have the energy to use them at all. Now I bought some cheaper-end skincare products from Cosmetics Love to get me started (sheet masks, essence, mist spray) and once I've gotten used to these new added stages for my routine I'll shop for the remaining products. Once I get a hold of them, does anyone want a review of sorts? I can also tell more about all the goos I put into my hair nowadays XD
I already got my next slip from the post office, and I'll try to get that by the end of the week. ...And there are still tons of items on my waiting-list. Send help! :P
