Good evening friend!
Didja see what I did there with the kanji in the title? :3 Trying to practice my Japanese~
But anyways, today, I thought I'd write about my favorites for the month of October!
I'm not much of a Halloween person, so there won't be any Halloween-y favorites here- sorry!
Is it okay if I start with something I made? I'm going to say that it is, because it is my blog after all :3
I really want to do art/crafty stuff more often, so I thought that each month I'd post a favorite drawing that I've done, as well as something that I've crafted.
I love Madoka Magica, it's one of my favorite animes, so I wanted to make some things from it!
(If you don't know the anime this will all sound like gibberish to you, so skip down to the next favorite ^_^)
Above, going from left to right, is Sayaka's soul gem, Homura's grief seed, and Madoka's soul gem!
They took very long to sculpt, but I'm really happy with the end results. I had never really done such detailed sculpting, and although they didn't turn out perfectly, I'm quite happy with the end result ^_^
My favorite drawing that I've done this month is this one!
I really like drawing skulls, so I just started this as a sort of quick, fun piece. I'm also fascinated by the wide variety of mushrooms that there are in the wild, so I just drew a bunch... cause fun? Some of them look really unreal, but I did them all from reference photos, so they all exist in the wild, which I think is really cool!
Anyways, now that my nerdy ranting is over, let's move on!
|First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream|
My skin has been pretty dry lately- I'm not sure why that is, but I apply this cream every night and it helps! I think it's only $10 at Sephora, and it works magically. You can use it anywhere you have irritated/dry skin. I have pretty sensitive skin, but it works quite well for me and hasn't caused any sort of irritation. Plus, it smells like a cream from my childhood that I used whenever I had a cold, so every time I use this is gives me a burst of nostalgia~ (The scent isn't strong; it's just slightly herbal).
|Shishedo Water in Lip Lip Balm (Pear Flavour?)|
Going along with dry skin products, this lip balm is great for dry lips! It glides on smoothly, doesn't feel sticky, and smells great (like pears!) It's a bit pricier than your average lip balm, I think it's around $6 on Ebay? But, it's definitely nicer than most of the other lip balms that I've tried in the past. I really like it ^_^
I got these eyeshadows a few months ago from the online shop Shiro Cosmetics. They make a lot of "nerdy themed" beauty products- so Harry Potter themed, Game of Thrones, Pokemon, etc. I think the quality of these products is great! One of my favorites is Alpaca Picnic (the pink shimmer one on the left). I'll have a review of all of these (as well as a lip balm from Shiro Cosmetics that isn't pictured here) up in a little bit ^_^
|Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer!|
Ahhhh I love this game so much! I got it a little while ago and I'm absolutely obsessed >u< I'm sure that most of you have heard of the Animal Crossing game series, but this isn't really like any of the other games. You sort of just go around making houses/rooms/venues for the villages in your village! They tell you what sort of things they like, what they want, and then you design it for them! You can also make hospitals, schools, and other such places, which I think is really cool!
This game is a great way to unwind after a long, tiring day. So much cuteness!
|EyeCandy Pom Pom Earrings|
I wrote a review for these a few days ago, so check it out here! I really love these earrings so much ;u; They're very big, so they draw quite a bit of attention, which I love >u< I think they go with a lot of different outfits- and I've definitely been wearing them too much, but eh, what can I say? Who wouldn't want giant puffballs hanging off of their ears? :3
Anyways, that's all I have for this month's favorites!
Thanks for reading!
