Packing my room + D.I.Y-ing!

Finally decided to not live in a pig sty and started packing my room since yesterday haha.

Actually it annoys me coz since I stopped work, I’ve already packed my room twice!
And thew out so much junk!
It’s like I have never ending junk seriously.

Anyways!
I’ve watched the interior DIY episode on Tokyo Kawaii TV at tokoyokawaiietc a long time ago!
And was fascinated by this interior design guru who uses cheap items and transforms it to great storage ideas!

The one that stuck me was the wooden rack suddenly used to be a hanger for accessories!
I decided to try it too!
Because what I use to keep my necklaces is this really useless thing:

My mum bought it for me in Japan at a zakka store because it has an “Anna Sui” vibe haha.
As you can see, I removed a lot of my necklaces already coz all they do is tangle up like nobody’s business =A=||

So I went to daiso and gotten a wooden rack ($2) and also to a stationery store to get mounting tape (less than $2):

So cheap!

And now tada!!!:

Love it! What a neat idea! I also placed some badges and trinkets on the “beam” as you can see~
I actually have a whole lot more necklaces, but I am prone to breaking them haha .__.;;

My mum was really impressed and FINALLY is letting me get a new cupboard after pestering her for TWO YEARS!
haha. It’s a long story… (>_>);; but my current cupboard is useless as it can’t store ANYTHING (>_>):; due to measurement errors when my mum bought me a bed years back.

ANYWAYS!!
Today I decided that I would also do the wire-net display. I saw it in my old edition of cutie interior book that I bought in HK in Jan~ Although truth to be told, when I first saw it, I never thought I would actually want to put it up. To me the wire makes it look tacky and like those push-cart stores haha.
But I did it anyway! Even though daiso didn’t have a smaller sized wire net, I went ahead and bought the huge 62cm(??) one.

Didn’t take a picture of the net.. (>_<);;
Anyways my plan was to hammer a nail in and hook the net over.
So I hammered away but my mum came in and gave me a better idea haha.
She gave me hooks to just stick on.

No more nails!
Just this:

Looking at the logo, apparently this is also from daiso!

Before:

After:

To be honest, it looks more cluttered haha! But now my accessories are all within reach! I don’t have to mess up my room searching for them!
I bought a second wire basket to hook onto the wire net!
Then I just placed my hairbands there and any other smaller hair ties.
It’s really useful! I will probably buy another one because I have too many hair ties @_@

I was really lucky coz I have a smaller storage box flushed to the end, and this wire neck fitted just nicely in between the wooden rack and the storage box :3

I also went to buy a curtain rod and some curtains to fix up (to hide my mess haha):

But it didn’t turn out good because I didn’t do any measuring before… It was an impulse buy haha!:


As you can see, it’s wayyy too long.
I’m going to cut it and sew it soon ~~

I also plan to decorate my storage box cause it’s really ugly now haha.
Actually, I plan to decorate a lot of things in my room haha.
Will keep everyone posted :P

HOW TO: Clean your false eyelashes! LASH CARE!

After reading women’s weekly or something [I don’t remember, my mum brings back stacks of mags home (@_@)]
I saw that popular Taiwanese make-up “guru” has a make-up guide released in English~!

Hurrah.
Because I’m not going to even try to decipher the different techniques in traditional chinese (@_@)
Anyways this guy is really popular!
He’s always on 女人我最大, teaching the female guests how to put on make-up that suits their skin, tips and what not!

Anyways why I’m posting this is because of a particular segment found in the book!

I initially wanted to share with everyone how to clean your lashes!
BUT ! Because of my laziness, it never happened haha.

So I’ll be borrowing the pictures [I have no scanner :( So I took photos ! haha] and listing down the tips!
Also I’ll be sharing my own tips on how to clean your falsies!!

I personally don’t do step 1 and 2 but here it is anyway:

o1: Using a pair of tweezers, pin down the lashes and brush them with a metal comb.
In the book it says that, “The tweezer and metal comb must be parrallel to each other. E.g not to have tweezer pin down the lash on left side and metal comb pin brush right side” -> YES I COPIED IT WORD FOR WORD. I had to read this sentence THREE times because the English was so bad! Also the book is FILLED with grammatical and spelling errors (@_@)

Anyways what it bascially means is that the tweezers and brush work TOGETHER. Whichever part of the lashes the metal comb brushes, the tweezer should be holding down on said portion.

o2: Clean the lashes with a spiral brush
I personally think that this step is only necessary if you apply mascara on your lashes. When you remove your makeup, the makeup remover would be on your falsies anyway, so to clean off the mascara residue, using the brush and makeup remover residue, just clean it by gentle brushing strokes~

o3: Using another pair of tweezers, pluck out glue residue from the lash rim.
It’s normal to find a lot of glue residue on the lash band/rim. What I do is I hold the lashes with my fingers and pluck the glue off GENTLY using the tweezers. Sometimes I get lazy and use my nails to just tug it off. DO NOT DO THAT unless you are very mild-mannered haha. I’m very… rough ? In dialect we say “chor lor”, which means something like rough and violent. So I usually ruin the lash band and the lashes (.__.);;

o4: Apply makeup remove on a cotton bud to clean the lash band
In fact … I actually do step 4 first before step 3 haha.
I don’t know, I’m weird like that! My “cleaning lashes” technique is all via trial and error and common sense as I couldn’t find any guide on how to take care of them (@_@) Glad to know I’m doing some things right! Haha.

Extra:


Apparently this is what you do when you STILL can’t remove the adhesive sticking on the lashes.
You soak the lashes in makeup remover for a few minutes and only the rim/lash band.
(Though when you look at the picture, it looks like they just dump the whole thing in O_O)
Quote, “P.S : Air dry the fake lash”

Please DO NOT soak the whole lash in the makeup remover (@_@)
I did that before when I first started wearing lashes many years back..
The shape would be really deformed after haha.
I would suggest dipping the lash band into the makeup remover and physically hold the lashes and wait a while!

Personally, I gently rub makeup remover and use the cotton bud to wipe it more.
I hardly have to soak my lashes.

The makeup remover I HIGHLY recommend is :
BIORE’s  Cleansing Oil :

It’s fantastic!

AFTER CLEANSING CARE:
You should always keep your lashes in their original casing, or in a lash casing (Like dolly wink’s etc)
Your lashes should be kept bent/ curved!

If you have lashes with a transparent lash band, even more so, you should keep them curved !
They are the easiest to go out of shape!
I’ll be posting soon abut why I hate transparent lash bands so much another day haha!
Please look out for it if you are a inner double eye-lidder like me haha.

I hope this helped some people with their lashes (^_^)
