Say Good-bye to Chub Rub!
When I find a product this great, this “revolutionary,” I just can’t keep it to myself! Ladies, say good-bye to chub rub and hello to Bandelettes!
Bandelettes are ingenious little bands of lace that you slip over your thighs, and are a perfect substitute for shapewear or creams/gels. Let’s not kid ourselves; shapewear is ugly and can be unbearably hot in the summer, and who wants to re-apply cream on their thighs all day long? Bandelettes solve those problems for good, and look sexy at the same time! (And for only $14.99, they’re completely affordable!)
I’ve been wearing a pair all day and I’ve not had to readjust them even once! They have thin silicone bands inside that run along the top and bottom of the band, which helps secure them in place. Normally I’m stuck in shapewear all spring/summer if I want to wear a dress, but with Bandelettes I think I might be able to have a Spanx-free summer!
(I was provided a pair of Bandelettes free of charge but was not asked to do a review.)

This makes me happy

gimmie!

these are pretty awesome! I have a pair and love them! There are times I have to re-adjust, as when I didn’t put it on right the first time ~.~ I also pull them down when I go to the bathroom because of how high up I have them and I dont want to risk peeing on theeemm (ew) The skin under the silicon does get a bit sweaty if I’ve been wearing them all day and it’s hot out, but that area can’t breath, so expected. 
I’m actually thinking of picking up another pair~

SO i had bought some canned pumpkin to mix into my dogs food, instead of black liquorice, because he’s been eating his poop for a while now, and we’re not sure why, and trying some stuff, but anyway, i bought some and mixed it into his food he hasn’t eaten yet and left the can open on the counter. The cat comes in, and she’s crazy for fruit. Like if you have some, she’ll come up and fight you for it. The can is sitting there open and she comes up and is like “what’s this? Oh it’s delicious and it’s mine” and it’s just.. Taco… you’re a strange kitty.

But as I promised, here it is. If you have any questions about it, its alright to ask and I will do my very best to help you.
I’m sorry it took such time, but my free Photoshop passed the last date for Days ago and I had to wait until I could get the chance to get a membership at Adobe and then to subscribe to Photoshop. But it is done, and I hope you all wish alot more tutorials to complete your Lolita-look or even tutorials about other things. If there is anything you wish to know, just ask.
Thank you all so much, yet again. I appreciate each and everyone of you, my dear followers.

Love

seriously this dog guys… he whined at me till I brought him into my lap. My husband is home and sleeping in bed. GO CUDDLE WITH HIM! You’re fat ass is killing my legs dog!

I had so much fun at the museum and tea party yesterday! A friend let me borrow his car so I didn’t have to take a bus and train to get there (Hubby actually asked him for me, since they were out drinking friday night) and I got to the museum around 11:30-ish and spent the next hour and a half going through this tiny little east and partially south asian art museum. China, Korea , Japan India/Hindu, Buddha and New Guinea where non-instillation regular art parts I think. They had two installations there from contemporary artist; one was a language/geography memory kind of inspired piece, and while interesting, the room smelled like some weird rubber chemical. The next installation was about chinese and mexican immigrants and the issues there faced. One of the larger more prominent pieces of that was a bit of rail track covered in fortune cookies. 

I really didn’t expect this museum to be so small either! But I’m kind of glad it was, I started to get a little art burn out about half way through, and glazed over the last bit of chinese art, the pottery and the korean art. 

I actually walked into 3 different clothing stores also and didn’t buy anything! There was nothing I REALLY loved, although I could have probably gotten a white cami for 10$ from loft and not feel guilty about it, I only have some old black and brown ones, since my lighter color ones were all in really bad shape and I threw them out. 

I met the event host just as we both were arriving the venue, and then we chatted waiting around for a few more people to show up. I Was so glad to see the other two girls! I had met them briefly at the Fairytale Anniversary party and hoped to meet them again. You both are fun to hang out with! We had ordered our tea and food and I think shortly before we got it, another two girls and one of their boyfriends came. I felt a bit bad because I realized we kept sort of leaving them out of conversations and I kind of hate out that feels when it’s done to me, but I sucked at trying to include them :\ I Need to get better about that! We ate and drank tea for nearly 3+ hours, before deciding it was time to go and take photos!

Apparently where we were has asked it’s tenants if it sees people taking photos, to tell them the place wants them to get a permit. But there is 0 signage stating that, or even a “NO TRESPASSING” sign. Like nothing. One of the girls said she was there like 4 or 5 times before, and had never seen anyone going in or out of the place before. So that was a bit baffling, but we had taken a bunch already so we left and did some more browsing, before I was like “it’s 7, it’s time to part~” and we separated and I had lots of fun and glad I’m making more of an effort to go out to meets even if they aren’t “near by”.

When Marnie Was There (Omoide no Mānī), 2014

written and directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi

Anna hasn’t a friend in the world— until she meets Marnie among the sand dunes.  But Marnie isn’t all she seems…

An atmospheric ghost story with truths to tell about friendship, families, and loneliness.  Anna lives with foster parents, a misfit with no friends, always on the outside of things.  Then she is sent to Norfolk to stay with old Mr and Mrs Pegg, where she runs wild on the sand dunes and around the water.  There is a house, the Marsh House, which she feels she recognizes— and she soon meets a strange little girl called Marnie, who becomes Anna’s first ever friend.  Then one day, Marnie vanishes.

A new family, the Lindsays, move into the Marsh House. Having learnt so much from Marnie about friendship, Anna makes firm friends with the Lindsays— and learns some strange truths about Marnie, who was not all she seemed…

— from Wikipedia

I must say, I’m really excited for this movie.  I loved Yonebayashi’s work on The Secret World of Arrietty, which was breath of fresh air after some of Ghilbi’s more plot-heavy films.  Judging by the trailer, Marnie is going to be very relaxed, and definitely enchanting.  Also, I just can’t wait to see Ghibli tackle a traditional ghost story, since that’s not the sort of material they usually adapt.

I am going to be emotionally compromised after this movie

Stills from Marnie final trailer.
I like the way it seems a bit different from the usual Miyazaki graphic style.
Future of Studio Ghibli is determined by the success of this movie, which opens this saturday in Japan.

He was pretty good actually. He realized how dickish going out and coming home so late was, apologized and did good about settling into bed fast. I was probably still awake till after 3, but there was no fight to get him to bed or anything

I want a movie about a kid who just so happens to be born a Classic Gothic Hero, but in modern day. His name would be like Byron Dangerfield or something. 

Whenever he has EMOTIONS, there are claps of thunder and lightning. Every time he leans against a piece of furniture, it turns out to open a secret passageway leading to some dark secret, until eventually he’s just like “REALLY, GUYS?” All bad dreams are prophetic, even if it’s just that Starbucks will be out of pumpkin spice syrup the next day. Every girl he talks to swoons a lot and has a tyrannical heavy-browed father who are all played by the same actor. Ravens flock around him.

There are inexplicably paintings with moving eyes and moving suits of armor everywhere he goes, even McDonalds. Every time he moves to a new apartment, there is ALWAYS a screaming woman chained up in the room above his, and she invariably sets the place on fire. He’s so over it.
