True Blood!!!!



I am so addicted to this show right now.
I first watched it a couple nights ago with my mom and it is sooooo goood (lol, good thing my lil sis wasn't watching)!

My brother works for this broadcasting company and all the workers there got a free preview DVD CD of the new HBO series, True Blood based on the Southern Vampire novels. I didn't watch it until months later because me and my closed minded ways didn't want to believe that an American drama series could be all that great. That show proved me so wrong!

It's pretty trashy and raw with all the swearing, sex, and racism stuff but I don't know, I just like it a LOT! I think it's because of the vampire theme which I love and the characters were so well played. In my opinion, the actors in this drama series are very talented, especially the girl who plays Tera. They're just so into their characters. It's really entertaining to watch.

I'm only on episode two right now and I have to watch it online because I have no idea when it plays on TV. I know it's of course on the HBO channel but uh, I have no idea of what time. I think it's like on Sunday nights but unfortunately I work at that time. -__-
Well, I don't particularly mind watching it online. Most of the shows I like are pretty hard to come by on TV.

So, whoever else is out there who are loyal followers of this series like myself, I've come across this site and it has some great links to watch the series.
They've got the full episodes and it doesn't seem like you have to download anything. I went to the movie4watch links.

Watch it if you love vampire stuff! It's pretty good omitting the sex, foul language, and rawness. >_<

I'm planning on reading the books too! I'm so excited!

Online Buys

Recently, I've been ordering stuff online because I can't find them anywhere in stores where I live.
They're all Japanese products. lol, Yeah, I love Japan.



First product, An Cafe Gokutama Rock Cafe CD. Fun songs. ^^
There's a lot of keyboard in this one.

Second product, An Cafe Magnya Carta CD. This is probably my favorite one out of all the CD's I've got from them. I think it's because I prefer the electric keyboard not mixed in with the rock music. Sometimes it's okay though. ^_-

Last CD I got from An Cafe, Ko Akuma Usagi no Koibumi to Machine Gun.
I can never remember the name of this CD. It's waaaaay to long. lol I don't know kanji either so that doesn't help me much. xP

There's only four songs on this and the CD costs just as much as a CD with 11 songs on it! Crazy isn't it?! I bought it mostly for the first song, My Heart Leaps for "C" but the other three aren't half bad.

I don't think I'll be getting the other CD's unless I'm in the area. I'm tired of ordering online haha.

Gatsby moving rubber #1 and #2. The purple is Gatsby Wild Shake moving rubber and the green is Gatsby Air Rise moving rubber (both are 80g).

I'm thinking the main difference is what kind of hair these two are for. The wild shake is for shorter hair and it mainly spikes it and the air rise is for medium length hair and it gives it volume.

Although In the end, I believe both gatsby's can spike hair.

That's all for now. I'm sort of tired of ordering things online but it's fun waiting for stuff in the mail. ^0^

Makeup: Eyeshadows

So, here's a few of my eyeshadows. They're all shadow books except for some NYX and MAC shadows that I bought recently. :)
I'll also give my reviews on a few.

And sorry again! The pictures come out super huge so I don't really recommend anyone clicking on them unless you want to see the pictures in super closeup detail. >.<
These are the single NYX eyeshadows I've bought. From left to right, there's: Silver, Frosted Flakes, and Baby Pink.

I don't really recommend you getting any of these shadows because they're so common. The only one that seems to be good in my opinion is the silver which would work great with black matte eyeshadow for a smokey eye look. I've experimented with the silver and other colors but with anything other than black it just seems to make my eyes look washed out. xP

The frosted flakes shadow is alright for a highlight but that's about it. And it's a fairly common color that's really not all that popular, even for a highlight.

The baby pink shadow is nothing special. It's like any other light pink eyeshadow out there. And you REALLY have to pack on the color for it to show. Not worth getting at all.


The MAC eyeshadows from left to right: Shale, Trax, and Creme de Violet
Like any eyeshadow from MAC, they don't disappoint. My favorites are the shale and trax colors. Shale is like a grayish purple and trax is a shiny maroon, nice for shadowing. ^_^





Urban Decay Wallpaper Shadow Box




Urban Decay Skull Shadow Box



I do recommend you clicking on this pic... I checked this one and trust me, it's a REALLY good picture for what the colors look like. @_@

This is my MAC 15 shadow palette. I had to go to the MAC store to get the eyeshadow fillers for this which takes almost an hour to drive to from my house. It kinda sucks so I don't usually go there. I should've filled it up completely the first time I went but I usually want to have planned out what colors I get.
There's so much to choose from with eyeshadows when it comes to MAC. -__-
Colors from left to right top to bottom: Star Violet, Swish, Parfait Amor, Stain Taupe, Ricepaper, Honey Lust, and Stars n' Rockets.



And lastly, this is the sucky Sephora violet eyeshadow palette. If you can see them, almost all the sparkly colors are pretty much useless because the 'sparkles' are these big glitter chunks that fall off so the result is this blah color with no shinyness.
Other than that, this is an okay palette but I mostly got it for the shiny colors which almost all of them suck except for the one on the top, third from the left... that maroonish color.
