I swear time flies by really quickly, and then when I notice, it’s been a while since I’ve blogged lol. I can’t believe it’s July already! Here are some snaps to finish off June.

I finally got my AmiAmi may order last week! Only 2 items since my June and July orders cost more and I’m saving up for a new camera at the moment. The Masamune Date plushie is a collaboration between GIFT and Algernon Product. Masamune is one of my favourite characters and I love all the super cute plushies GIFT makes, so I immediately preordered it when it became available. The crescent on his helmet got slightly bent, which was a bit disappointing, but I guess it’s a bit hard to package it since it sticks out. He still looks so fierce in his chibi form :blood

     

The other item I got was Shingeki no Mint in grape flavour, which has 6 packets of mints in tins. I was hoping to get Armin but unfortunately I didn’t and got hilarious images on them instead. It smells like it’ll be sweet like grape bubblegum but there’s a kick of citrus in it? which is good to have after eating a meal.

On the 29th of June I got my hair cut, I think it’s been a bit over 6 months since I’ve cut my hair. I usually get my hair cut every 3~4 months, but because I permed my hair I wasn’t sure what cut to get so I just let my hair grow until I got sick of it lol.

This is the hairstyle I used as reference. I really like the hair catalogue of AFLOAT, I think they have cute and simple styles which you can style at home yourself if you don’t want to get an airy perm. I’m always a fan of short hairstyle with layers :eheh

Surprisingly it took 1.5 hours to cut my hair, including hair washing it twice, I thought it would only take 40mins but I guess there was a lot of hair to thin out. Thanks to my hairdresser for all her hard work!

I currently go to blu:/ creativity which I highly recommend! They have nice and friendly service and I really like the atmosphere of the place.

Before and after shot! My head feels so free now :bunny Now I need buy more haircut products and try to figure out how to style short hair again. The great thing about having a perm that I only needed to comb my hair and spray some leave inconditioner to quickly style it.

N2 is a gelato bar which always has really interesting gelato flavours and combinations from regular flavours such as cheesecake to pork floss. And another cool thing is that they use liquid nitrogen in the process of making it!

Last week they had kimchi served with roasted rice gelato so my friends and I decided to try it for fun. The kimchi wasn’t spicy at all and the gelato took away the taste of the kimchi so it was like eating crunchy gelato. A lot of my friends complained about the kimchi aftertaste which they had later on in the night though haha.

     

Do you like Ikea food? I’m not really found of their food meal wise, I prefer eating their desserts and soda more. I usually just order their kids meal because I don’t really like the other meals they serve. I had their seafood meal before and it was sort of like I was eating rubber lol.  Their cream cake with marzipan is my favourite, I love the sweetness and texture of it. And it’s nice getting free soda refills after you pay $2 for the glass.

I really like supporting my favourite artists by purchasing their apparel so today I’ll be posting about Omocat! Nothing like showing your love through merchandise lol /cough fandoms/.

I first discovered her through Omori Boy and I’ve been a fan ever since. Her range of work covers fanart of games and anime/manga to her own character creations. I really like her style – she has that cute but gruesome style which I like lol, with vibrant and eye catching colours.

This is actually the second time I’ve bought from her from her estore, I own 2 other sweaters and an art print by her, but I got them last year when I wasn’t posting much :gloom

Order Info
  • 1st March – Placed for order
  • 8th March – Received shipping notice
  • 19th March – Package arrived

I paid via paypal and shipping cost me US$14.00. It was packaged like generic clothing orders? In that plastic bag thing lol.

Items

I ordered 2 items:

The SHOTABOY tee is from Omocat’s webcomic, Pretty Boy which is based the relationship two guys with seemingly different personalities.

I think this is the first green top that I’ve bought and I like simple graphic tees which is why I chose it. There’s also a pink t-shirt from the series but I’m not really fond of pink clothing since I don’t think it really suits with what I’ve got in my wardrobe lol.

I bought this in extra small and these are the measurements listed for it on the site:

Chest Sleeve Waist Length
16″ 13″ 15.75″ 26.5″

This is great to wear during the warmer temperatures and the material isn’t too thin. It’s also a 100% cotton American Apparel tee so it’s super comfy! I like wearing baggy unisex t-shirts so I thought the fit was fine.

The DEMONBOY Crewneck is a cute pastel sweater which I thought was perfect to adding some colour in my Autumn/Winter wardrobe. My currently clothing obsession is buying sweaters so I’ve been getting a whole range of different types. And who can say no to buying something with a cute face like that? :shinyred

I got this in small and the site describes it as being screen-printed on a 50% cotton 50% polyester crewneck sweater with these measurements:

Chest Sleeve Waist Length
20.25″ 29.5″ 19.5″ 25″

I wish they sold the sweaters in XS as I prefer my clothing not to be too baggy, but otherwise it’s really warm and comfy to wear. I think I kinda look like a blob if I wear thicker clothing too baggy haha. The weather in Sydney doesn’t get too cold, so it’s fine to wear with a collar shirt underneath.

One thing which surprised me though is the material which the design is printed on with. I think it’s paint while the other sweaters I got previously was just with ink (sorry I don’t know my materials LOL). I just thought it was interesting because of the different texture :eheh

In comparison with the FISHBOY Crewneck

I’m happy with my purchases and definitely will keep buying from her range of apparel if I’m a fan of her future designs. I’ve seen some people complain about the cost but I’m a person who doesn’t really care about the price if I find a design I like. I’ve bought from another designer who started his own clothing line and he prices his clothing slightly more (but it’s due to local production costs) so I don’t think it’s expensive :huuu

If you haven’t heard about Omocat before, please check out her blog, portfolio and store!

And feel free to post any links in the comments to artists you follow online. I’m always interested to look at people’s artworks.
