Geeky Goodies: Animal Crossing Stationary

Hey Fam! I would like to start a new series on my blog and YouTube channel, where I share some cool gaming, anime, comic etc. stuff that I come across. Since I am often asked, “where did you get that?” now I can show you all! So, welcome to Geeky Goodies: Animal Crossing Stationary. I also have my own ecommerce store as well, NerdyMerch, so be sure to check that out. 

I think I’ve made it clear by now that my kids will be headed to California to spend spring break and some of summer with the rest of their loved ones. As much as I’m going to miss them I strive for ways for us to keep in touch. I even have an article about international co-parenting. My kids and I are extremely close, and we all happen to love the video game franchise, Animal Crossing. We were playing one of the older games a few nights ago, Animal Crossing Wild World, and were writing letters to some of our friends in town. My daughter made the suggestion that we should write little letters on pretty stationary to each other.

I happened to have some Animal Crossing stationary, as I originally bought it for this exact reason. This stationary is handmade by an Etsy seller, CraftWithZeal and I highly recommend you check them out. They do ship world-wide, but please keep in mind that shipping to Australia will be a bit of a financial hit. This has nothing to do with the seller at all, but importing taxes. I purchased this stationary while I was in California, and was very pleased with the prompt service, and personal touches this seller added. She even drew a picture of Isabelle from Animal Crossing New Leaf on my envelope. I wish I still had it! Geeky Goodies: Animal Crossing Stationary

The Etsy seller even wrote a hand written thank you card on her stationary. These special little touches made me so happy, and I had always meant to get around to reviewing this store. I love supporting small, creative businesses and think blogging is a great platform to do just that.

I highly recommend CraftWithZeal and will definitely purchase from her again. 

Overwatch D.Va Gremlin Cosplay Makeup

 

Hiya! 

My son and I are huge Overwatch fans, and as a fun surprise I did my makeup today like D.Va, along with my new favorite D.Va Bunny decal t-shirt I purchased from Amazon. He loved it and so did my online friends.

I thought I’d share with you the products I used to achieve this simple and fun look. I prefer Korean-style makeup most of the time because it is so dewy and light. In my opinion, it’s a great way to accentuate your natural looks while maintaining a youthful element without looking like you’re trying too hard. I am in my 30’s after all! I’ve personally never been a big fan of the mature, heavy makeup look but mostly because I can’t pull it off well.

 

On Final Tip: Doritos Mountain Dew are a must to complete D.Va gremlin look! ;D I hope some of these tips come in handy for you serious cosplayers out there. Me? I just like doing this for fun! Loner Life! 😀

 

Overwatch D.Va Gremlin Cosplay Makeup

Products I used for this look:

     1. BB Cream by SKIN79: This BB cream is 100% my favorite brand and BB Cream by the brand. I’ve tried the gold bottle too, but in my opinion, the pink bottle is brighter. The coverage is great so remember, a little goes a long way. I like to mix it with the #2 product, Etude House Face Conditioning Cream for a more supple and hydrated look. A little goes a long way so I use a little more than a pea-size amount for the cream and double it for the BB cream.

      2.   Etude House Face Conditioning Cream: This stuff is a must in my arsenal. Sometimes BB creams can be a bit on the dry side. I have normal-dry skin so I need all the help I can get. This cream also brightens your complexion and protects skin from harmful rays from the sun, so a lot of times when I’m lazy I just apply this to my face as-is and head out for exercise/run errands. It’s a fantastic product!

3. Benefit High Beam: This highlighter is the best I’ve tired. I used to be obsessed with Artificial Light by Smashbox but seem to have a difficult time finding it these days. However, in my opinion, High Beam is even better. It gives an extremely light hint of a rose color which makes your dewy makeup look even more natural. I apply a small amount to the bridge of my nose, my cupid’s bow, cheek bones and brow bones. Sometimes I dab a little on the crease of my chin right under my bottom lip and finish with a little bronzer.

4. MAYBELLINE Stiletto Liquid Liner: For a drugstore brand, this stuff is really impressive and affordable. I paid  under $10.00 for it and it’s long lasting, not cakey and comes in brown and black. I love using brown liquid liner because as you age, sometime black liner can weigh down your eyes which make you appear a little older. So for my everyday makeup, I stick to brown liners and mascaras. I simply create a classic wing tip on my top lid.

   5. Etude house Tear Eye Liner: This stuff is delicately sparkly and completes a lot of my looks. I use this product on the bottom lids to emulate the famous aeygo look which makes your eyes look a little puffy and cute. I like that this product isn’t heavy. It gives a subtle pop to achieve an age appropriate version of cute puffy eyes.

  6. Missha LINE Friends Mascara: I like this mascara a lot. The price point is very reasonable at under $10.00 USD and it works very well. Is it the best? No, but definitely not the worst. I like it for light makeup days and it doesn’t clump up on lower lashes which is a plus.

 7. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow LinerI love this stuff, and have a few shades since I do color my hair and play with wigs. In this photo, I am using the Auburn pot, but use what best suits your aesthetic. A little goes a long way, so it’s worth the price of $18.00 USD. Works great with a small angled brow brush.

   8. Missha LINE Friends Lip Tint: I wrote a review a while back on this stuff, and used this shade, pink soda, for this look. D.Va rocks a soft pink doll lip and this lip tint is perfect for it!  This stuff is great and the packaging is super kawaii!

   9. LuckyFine Special Effects Body Paint:  If you aren’t interested in investing in a Ben Nye makeup kit, LuckyFine makes a really cool pallet perfect for those on a budget or starting out with any sort of cosplay, special effects etc. I love this stuff. It is oil based so keep in mind for smudging. I love this stuff because it does not stain my skin and I haven’t had any issue with it sweating off. It’s under $20.00 USD and overall a very diverse product.

I hope you enjoyed this simple makeup guideline! I loved playing around with this look and even happier it brought a few smiles to peoples faces.

Totoro Robe for Under $15 and Where to Shop!

Oversized Hoodie Totoro Robe$14.99 from Amazon

Hi Fam!

This week I wanted to share with you one of my coziest anime loving finds that I love bundling up in while at my desk and/or playing video games. This Totoro inspired cloak/robe is an extremely cute and affordable gift for just under $15.00. It’s perfect for yourself or for a loved one who is a huge fan of the beloved Totoro franchise!

I was super happy to find this piece on Amazon a while back and although I will warn you the robe is a bit short (about to my waist and I’m 5’7) the oversized hoodie and single button in front make up for that disappointment. I really love oversized comfy clothing for around the house which is pretty much what I live in!

Shameless Selfie but at least I’m adulating the right way! 

I thought I’d share this amazing find because I get so many compliments on it when I post selfies online on Instagram or video chat with loved ones. I’d love to start sharing cute clothing and accessories in the Beauty section of Amby Cakes from time to time! 

I also wanted to thank everyone for their support, kind words and subscription. It’s something I look forward to every morning when I check my blogs’ business e-mails and social media.

I hope you enjoy this kawaii affordable find Totoro fans!

CREER BEAUTE Miracle Romance Sailor Moon Liquid Liner

CREER BEAUTE Miracle Romance Sailor Moon Liquid Liner

Hey Guys!

I’m super excited about sharing this review for the CREER BEAUTE Miracle Romance Sailor Moon Liquid Liner a line I covet so much! I’m always excited to try new liquid liners since I’m pretty particular. I don’t like my makeup to look or feel heavy, which is one reason why I lean toward Japanese and Korean cosmetics in the first place.

CREER BEAUTE Miracle Romance Sailor Moon Liquid Liner

This Sailor Moon Liquid Liner has a very delicate yet sturdy felt .1 mm tip, and the product itself is long-lasting. I didn’t experience any smudging throughout the day or scattering while applying to the corners of my lids. The product is light in application and wear, but pretty bold. I’ve tried many American liners which are bold but extremely heavy and weigh down for lids after a while.

My only complaint about this liner is it’s pretty small. There is only about .4 ml worth of product which isn’t much compared to other liners and for the price which is around $25.00 USD . However, the quality of the product, in my opinion, is worth the investment. I just wish there was more product and the pen was a bit larger.
