I've been finding some great stuff lately so I thought I would share it all with you guys.~
Maybe you all will find something new you will like through this post.


Yowamushi Pedal (watch)
Sakamichi Onoda is an otaku, an anime obsessive, who has just entered high school and plans to join the anime club. In middle school Onoda did not have any friends with whom he could talk about anime, games, Akihabara and other otaku things and is hoping he can make such friends in the anime club, but he finds out it has been disbanded. In order to reestablish the club he tries to find 4 other people who would like to join.
Since he was a little boy, Onoda has ridden his mamachari ("City Bike" AKA "Mommy Bike" in the anime) – a bulky bicycle with a step-through frame mainly used for short rides, such as for casual fun, to pick up groceries or to go to Akihabara every week to check out or buy otaku things. His fellow freshman, Shunsuke Imaizumi, a cyclist, while training, notices Onoda riding his mamachari up a steep road.
Shōkichi Naruko, visit Akihabara to get some Gundam plastic models for his younger brothers and he meets Onoda, who caught his attention because of the his cycling skill on the mamachari and later finds out they go to the same school. Later on, both Naruko and Imaizumi try to convince him to join the bicycle racing club, but will he?
I didn't expect to get wrapped up in an anime literally about riding bikes but I did,haha. It's pretty over the top,and some of the characters are really strange,but that's what keeps it interesting. It's really funny because people joke that all the characters look like they could be in a different series and it's really true,the art is so different from character to character it's really interesting. I literally watched this just because I kept seeing it on my dash and I was bored,but I kept watching it and now I'm waiting for season 2.

Haikyuu!! (watch/read)
Junior high school student Shōyō Hinata gains a sudden love of volleyball after seeing a national championship match on TV. Although short in height, he becomes determined to follow in the footsteps of the championship's star player, nicknamed the "Small Giant", after seeing his plays. He creates a volleyball club and begins practicing by himself. Eventually five other members join the team by his last year of middle school, but they are defeated in their first tournament after being challenged by the championship favorite team, which includes the so-called "King of the Court" Tobio Kageyama, in the first round. Though Hinata's team suffers a miserable defeat, he vows to eventually surpass Kageyama and defeat him.
Another sports anime,wooo! I also watched this because I had seen a lot of people posting about it so I became interested so I finally checked it out and loved it. Haikyuu!! is really cute and funny and all the characters are pretty lovable (I really love so many of them it's ridiculous). For me it's a pretty feel good anime,I watch it and smile and laugh a lot. I recommend it for sure,so don't be put-off by it revolving around volleyball. After watching some of the anime I started to read the manga and I really liked it as well. The manga is further along than the anime and so far comparing the two they seem pretty similar to each other which is great!

Tokyo Ghoul (watch/read)
The story follows Ken Kaneki, a young man who receives organ donations from a "Ghoul" after he is nearly killed. Ghouls are creatures that look human but need to eat human flesh to survive. Kaneki soon realizes he is now half-human and half-ghoul. 
So first I have to talk about the manga with this one,cause that's what was first for me. The manga is fantastic,it's one that makes me always wonder, 'what happens next?'. I do have to warn,this manga and anime are both horror based and both have blood and gore in it. I personally like horror based stuff so I was hooked from the moment I started to read it. There are a lot of cool characters and a lot of action so it keeps you really into it. Now the anime has just started airing,and ironically watching the anime previews is what first got me interested in the series so I read the manga,so all I can write on is the first episode. The animation is really nice and clean,and I really like the colors used a lot,so it's very visually appealing to me. Unlike Haikyuu!! though,it doesn't seem to follow the manga as closely as I wish it did. They also added some character appearances a bit early which I didn't expect. I really am looking forward to watching more of the anime as it comes out though and I really can't wait for more of the manga to get translated (lol I was bad and looked up all the raw scans).



♥Bright/Colorful Lip Colors♥

So everyone knows I am a huge lipstick/lip color junkie.
I probably buy lip products over most makeup items because it's honestly one of my favorites.
I've been happy to notice a trend of people wearing more 'non-traditional' colored lipsticks and I thought I would share some companies/brands with you guys. :)
Please note that I haven't had the chance to try most of these companies out,but I will do my best to find swatches and reviews.
*most information is coming from this post*

I've only heard a lot of good things about the lip products from this company,the only down most people seem to have is that it comes in a chapstick container. (that can easily be combated with a lip brush though)
One thing I find really cool about this company is that you can buy little samples of the colors before committing to buying the full size,which is really awesome because I personally know how much it sucks buying a color you like but it doesn't look great on you.
Price/Size: Sample - $2/? Full Size - $12/.15oz
Reviews/Swatches: here,here & here.

This is a company I have been dying to get my hands on!
They have so many gorgeous colors and I have also heard good things about their products.
They have two different lip products, first are their Lipsticks and next are their Wet Paints.
*says it's not tested on animals*
Price/Size: Lipsticks - $14.99-19.99/? Wet Paint - 18.99/?
Reviews/Swatches: here & here.

This is a company most of you have probably heard of already for it's longevity and good selection of colors.
I personally own 5 liptars from OCC and I love all of them.
You barely have to use any product to get full coverage and it lasts most of the day,it also comes with a mini-lip brush.
Another big up to this company is that it's 100% vegan and not tested on animals.
Prices/Size: $18.00/0.33oz
Reviews/Swatches: here,here, & here.

This is a company is one that I have personally never heard of before.
They carry a pretty good range of color from bright yellow to blue to black.
While looking at the site I found something I thought was really awesome, they are a very environmentally friendly company,so their products and vegan and most of the things they send their products in are bio-degradable.
Price/Size: $12.50/4 grams
Reviews/Swatches: here & here.

This is another company that I feel a lot of people know already,specially since it's a drugstore brand.
Recently they came out with a new lip product they call Macaron Lippies.
Prices/Size: $6.00/?
Reviews/Swatches: here & here.

This is an Etsy based company,and another one that I haven't really heard of before.
They have 2 selections of lipstick, Shimmer and Glossy
From what I see,the color selection is really great and most of the colors look very vibrant,I would actually be very interested in trying some of these colors out.
The lipstick's come in two different sizes,a lip balm size and a full lipstick size.
Prices/Size: Lip Balm Size - $7.00/? Full Lipstick -$9.50/?
Reviews/Swatches: here & here.

Melt is one of those companies I have been dying to try!
Their colors are gorgeous and I have only heard wonderful things about their products.
They are a cruelty free company which is always a huge plus.
Price/Size: $19.00/?
Reviews/Swatches: here & on their site.

Another company I stumbled upon and have been wanting to try for a few months now.
They have 8 different liquid lipstick colors and don't carry any other form of lip product.
I personally love liquid lipsticks so it's a win for me;this is also a cruelty free/vegan company.
Price/Size: $12.00/7 grams
Reviews/Swatches: here & here.

I actually found out about this company yesterday through a youtube video.
They have a great variety of bold,bright colors and I'm really itching to get my hands on some.
They have two different lip products, Lipsticks and Lip Paint.
Price/Size: Lipstick - $10.00/? Lip Paint - $12.00/?
Reviews/Swatches: -

Now I know there are more companies than what I listed,but I think I listed a pretty good amount with a decent price range.
I hope this is helpful to some of you guys and I hope to see more people wearing bold colors!~


Ⓡⓔⓥⓘⓔⓦ ES Natural Upper and Lower Lashes & COSMOS Bright Natural Short to Long Eyelashes

✧Please note:This review is based off my own experiences with the products
Hello ghoulies! Today I am back with another sponsored review thanks to kkcenterhk.com!The first set are the ES Natural Upper and Lower Lashes,and I was really excited to try these because they come with 3 pairs of top lashes and 2 pairs of bottom lashes.~

Both sets of lashes have a spiked design and are thinker at the end making that the main focal point of the lashes.
Both top and bottom lashes have a transparent stem,which are my absolute favorite,and are pretty easy to bend and shape around my eyes.

So what are my thoughts on them?
I am 100% in love with my top lashes,they are such a lovely design and really light-weight,as for the bottom lashes,I like them and think they really match with the top lashes.
I decided to do something a little different with this review,I made some .gifs to go along with the review! 

The second set of lashes are the 
COSMOS Bright Natural Short to Long Eyelashes.~

My first thought about these lashes were that they had cute packaging,lol.
These lashes come in a set of 5 pairs and have a transparent stem.

I have to say,these are the softest lashes I have ever touched!
They are really light-weight (you almost can't even really feel them on) and the design in from short to long getting thinker with every other spike.
These lashes look pretty natural on,I really like them!
Both sets of lashes have a very natural look to them and would look good with basic makeup or more dressed up makeup.~
