Guam Day 1: Blogger meet up!!!!!

HEY GIRLS!!!

Missed me???

I’m back from Guam!

I had a blast and hauled a lot (although not as much as I was planning to…), so it will take me some time to get through my posts.

REWIND to about 2 weeks ago…

After I had made my reservations to go to Guam, I was browsing through my recent followers. I stumbled upon Cheysser, who actually LIVES in there!!!

I commented on her blog that I was going to Guam, and I emailed her too. Apparently some of her friends had wondered if I was just messing with her or if I really was going to Guam! I totally understand… I’d wonder if someone suddenly sent me an email asking for a meet up!!!

Cheysser was kind enough to invite some of her friends, Shantee and Shar, to also come and meet me!! (side note: Shar actually works for the travel agency I booked through!! What a coincidence!!!!)

Aaannnnnddddd…
It was the first time for the Guam Girls to do a blogger meet up!!!!

WOOHOO! I feel SO SO SO special!

The girls were so sweet and so kind! I sent SO many emails asking for info on Guam, but they were so nice in answering them!

Shantee, Cheysser, and Shar!

Food porn!!!


Of course we had to take a picture at the DFS!

The girls absolutely SPOILED me with gifts!!!!

From Cheysser & Shantee…

LOOK at all this stuff!!!!

A Milky Way fun pack (everyone knows I like this now, don’t they???)

Revlon Creme shadow in Va Va Va Bloom
NYX eyeshadow trio in Princess Pink/ Flamenco/ Violet
5 different ELF lippies!!!!!!
2 empty ELF quads (which I have wanted for a long time!!!)
And the cutest HK card!!!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!
Shar sold me her MAC paint pots…

In this ultra cute box!!!

Look at the extras she threw in!!

2 more ELF lippies and an I love Guam keyholder!

Let’s take a look at the paint pots…
Fresco Rose
Rubenesque
Groundwork

My first paint pots!!!
I already used the Fresco Rose every day of my trip to Guam!!!

Thank you again to the girls for coming to meet me!! I had a blast!!!

SWAP with Linda!

I will be MIA from May 6th to Sunday May 10th, because I will be on vacation without internet access. <– sounds like work, doesn’t it?
Never fear!!
I have SCHEDULED POSTS coming up!!

————————–
Every month, I watch in envy as my blogger sisters in the US place their orders for their My Pretty Pink Boxes. Since MPPBs aren’t shipped outside of the US and Canada, I asked Linda if it would be possible to do a swap.

She sent me this HUGE box!!!!!!

Let’s take a look inside….

Holy Sh*T!!! There’s more in there other than the MPPB!!!

A Burt’s Bees overnight set in a cute case!!


OMG!!!!
It’s the Too Faced World Domination palette!!!
Oh Wow! So much to play with!!!

Some samples which I am taking with me to Guam…


As for what was in the MPPB…

Some moisturizer samples!

Oooooh Skin Refining Serum!!

Lip tint, this was a very interesting brownish color!

More lip balm, bath soap, and a body lotion!!!


Loose Eyeshadows!! I definitely need an empty palette!!!



Thank you so so so so so SOO much Linda!!!!
You have spoiled me so much!!

Thank you Iyah / EOTD: Green!?!?

I’m going on vacation to Guam from Wednesday and will be back Sunday.
Don’t know where Guam is? Here, it’s a US territory FILLED with Japanese tourists.

I’m going to be the typical Japanese tourist, but it IS a US territory… which means I’m gonna do some MAJOR HAULING off of my wishlist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOHOO!!!!!

AND… I’m going to meet up with some beauty blogger ladies from Guam!!!!

PS: Where is the cheapest place to buy NYX in Guam? The fragrance outlet at the GPO?

——————————-

Most people who have been reading beauty blogs recently will know “she who must not be named.”
You can read about her here / here / here (any other girls want to add their link?)

But today’s post is not directly about her.
Iyah very kindly sold me the 6 NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow pencils that were mentioned in this post.

SOOOOO I got to try out the NYX Jumbo Pencils that I’ve been LEMMING for… and for such a very sweet price!!
THANK YOU IYAH!!!!!!!!!

The package came only 5 days after posting! This has got to be a record!

Wait a minute…
Iyah has thrown in some extras!!!!!!!!!

Awwww what a sweet note! And what cute stationery!

I used to live in the suburbs of NYC.
Which means that I don’t have a I heart NY anything…
This would be pretty cool to flaunt here in Japan!!!

BB cream samples! Yay!

AAAAAANNNNNNDDDD the NYX Pencils

(from left, Gold / Lemon / Strawberry Milk / Pots & Pans / Yogurt / French Fries)

I did an EOTD with the Lemon because I’m so scared of green.
After blue comes green!!!

As Wuzzy commented, “the beauty bloggers are helping each other crawl out of their shells!!”

All of the next three are the same, but under different lighting.
Which looks the most realistic?



What I used:

  • NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Lemon up to crease
  • Blended out with light brown e/s
  • Dark brown e/s blended into outer corner
  • Lined eyes with Olive Green Gel Liner
  • Mascara primer + Mascara

Maybe I should try orange next, like Jamilla suggests!

SWAP with Wuzzy!

Here is the OTHER package that I got in the mail the other day!!

I am so so so so SOOOOO sorry I wasn’t able to post this sooner… I feel terrible…

It’s a package from our favorite Hawaiian girl, Wuzzy!!!!

I saw something I wanted from her Aloha Swap, and she asked me for some Japanese candies in return! I am so nervous when someone asks me for Japanese sweets… what if they don’t like them?????

How cool is it that you can call your sale “the Aloha Sale”???

If I do one, should it be called, “the Konnichiwa Sale”????? hahahaha

Anyway… I get off track too often!

Here’s the package!


Wuzzy put everything in this cute box! How thoughtful!!!
(and what bad photography!!! hahaha)


LOOK at everything she sent me! WOW!!!!

This is what we swapped for!
Clinique mini shadows in Sparkling Sage and Strawberry Fudge
Everything else is Wuzzy’s GENEROUSITY!!!
I am SOOO gonna get you back for this, Wuzzy!!!!

HK chocolate filled marshmallows & Hurricane popcorn!
Mochi Crunch & Nori??? WOW!!

Skinfood Mushroom BB Cream & a NYX trio in Guru!!!
I did not realize this was a NYX trio!
Neutrals are a staple for me and I am so eager to try the BB cream!

Hawaiian HK magnet and Hawaiian cell phone strap!
HK in a grass skirt playing the ukulele??? SOOO CUTE!
I LOVE getting touristy stuff from where you are!!!

Blueberry Swirly Twirly Soap
Jess’s Girl Eye Dust

You have SPOILED me!!!
