A New Look: Site Edition

Hello! TGIF!

Haha I actually have today off but I wanted to tell you all that we have a new look here at prettystories.net! :) It might just be a day late or so but it’s a partyy!! Everything looks so nice and new and everything! :3

Modelling Smores

Excuse my abundant use of emoticons. Can you tell just how excited I am? Hahaha.

There isn’t too much that is exciting about this post so here is a picture of S’mores posing in one of her two new winter coats! :) She isn’t a fan of clothing but she will not try to bite them off. :P Instead she tries to shake it off but that’s no good.

I will have a post up next week about a memebox I got during the summer. :P I am a slow one! But for now just enjoy the site! If you do find any issues leave a comment and we’ll try to fix it.

Testerkorea Haul/Review

I discovered Testerkorea when I found out about Etude House’s Princess Makeup Table, and decided I needed it. (like, really. My stuff at my boyfriend’s place was kind of spread all over the top of the dresser and it was really annoying him)

I did a quick bit of research on the site, and it didn’t seem like a scam :P So I bought the table (which seems to have since sold out :(), as well as a few other things because I deserve it okay.

First, mah stuffs:

Black Phoenix Trading Post Hair Gloss Review


I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for this long (i.e. more than three hours) without mentioning my love for Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab perfume oils. I’ve been collecting them since 2009, but focusing on them never left me enough discretionary cash for their sister site, Black Phoenix Trading Post. But during their Halloween update last year, I finally got to try one of their hair glosses and absolutely loved it. I was really excited to get more, as they had some exclusive scents for New York Comic Con, but I was working there as a crew member and unfortunately when I was finally free to explore the con off-duty, both of them had already sold out. I may or may not have outwardly cried. For hours. ahem. But here is the one I bought last year, Lightning Storm!

Vivid flashes of dazzling electricity: white mint, white tea, white ginger, a jolt of yuzu, and electric green lime!

Review: Goodal Phytoshrink Andiroba Seed Pore Toner

Whew I think I’m on track with the posts! My goal is basically once a week. Twice if I’m good :P But here I am with another one! I am excite. Haha

I had a great day with some shopping luck and got a great lace maxi skirt at Urban Outfitters. Usually I don’t shop there because it’s too expensive but they had a 50% off all sale items and I had to check on what they had because that’s a pretty good deal and I actually found something nice! *___* Now all I need to do is to get in shape so I make all the nice clothes that I got look nice. Hahaha. This is forever a work in progress.

But today we are talking about this toner I got from Clio!

Review: Origins Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask

IT’S OCTOBER! Best month ever! Pumpkin everything! All the TV shows! My work schedule makes it almost impossible for me to catch everything while it airs because I’ve been trying to exercise more. But it’s all a work a progress! :) But for now I’m talking about one of my favorite mud masks, Origins Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask To Rescue Problem Skin. And yes that is the whole entire name! It’s a super long name but I really like this mask! I got it from Sephora for $25 but you can also get it from the Origins webshop as well.

Haircut!


These past few days, I’ve been an ADULT and did GROWN-UP THINGS like start a retirement investment fund and go to the opthalmologist wtf who am i. Anyway since I was spending all this money on bettering myself, I also decided to get my hair cut and recolored – I grew my bangs out and failed at trimming them so I stopped doing anything to my hair and just shoved bobby pins into it and hoped it would go away (I’m a Leo, I only know how to either go all out or do nothing at all) (also conclusive evidence of my adulthood).

PTR Lashes to Die For: The Liner Review

I have another eyeliner review! Now this one is an interesting one because I had heard a lot about this particular liner from one of my coworkers from Ricky’s. She was telling me how much she loved it that she bought a second one. After that conversation I could feel my need for this liner grow.

Pptr4

It wasn’t until I was about to leave that my store had received stock of this liner and I was excited. But not too excited because it did come at a hefty price $28, and you can also purchase it from Sephora. And now onto the review!

Disclaimer: I purchased this with my own $$$ and this review is all my own opinion.

Skin Food Haul!

I was working on this other post but I thought since time is usually of the essence I should write about this first! If you live in NYC; specifically in the Flushing, Queens area, a Skin Food store opened up on Friday 9/5! So right now is their grand opening!

Skin Food Haul

There’s not too much to add so let’s get on with the post!

The Best Brush for Your Brows


HOW IS IT SEPTEMBER ALREADY

;______; you know you’re getting old when you start complaining about how quickly time is passing. haha.

ANYWAY

This brush has seriously changed my life. I bought it at an Etude House in Singapore last summer, where it was on sale for like THREE SING DOLLARS. I then spent months regretting the fact that I didn’t choose to clear out the store’s stock, and am now seriously considering grabbing another one for more than twice that (lol I say that like it’s a huge amount) on eBay.

Year of the Pets!

Helloo~

It’s been a while hasn’t it? Heh…

smores2

Life has been a bit hectic lately and I’m just also prettyy lazy. Just imagine summer vacation. Muahaha. Okay so since Jessica’s post about her rats, I have also gotten a pet! I adopted this adorable dog as a birthday present from a very close friend. But it basically encompasses a few years worth of birthday presents altogether.

But her name is S’mores is she’s a little over 2 years old. She is definitely a welcome thing in my life and we are both two lazy souls who just love laying down together. But she is always super excited in the morning and at night so I can take her on her long walks.
