Hello, Fall...

Well, not exactly...but guess what? I managed to get my hands on the Limited Edition Jill Stuart mook! Yippie!! I got one of the last two at Kinokuniya. Been wanting this since I'd seen it on Rouge Deluxe and was also reminded by Yumeko.

I have a slight addiction to buying small cases, but I figured this was ok since it sort of matches the Liz Lisa case I got with an issue of Cawaii a while back ago.

Now these two cases hold my currently-in-rotation makeup, while the rest chill in my larger train cases.

It's a good size, fairly roomy but not too big. There is a removable divider and you prob already know the top has spots for brushes. You can see it easily fits 2 MAC quads, 2 MAC powder, my 2 VOV Castledew palettes, and more. Not bad!

Almost forgot, it came with a mirror of the same print. Cawaii!!

I also spotted this October issue of VOCE.

It grabbed my eye because the cover model is so pretty and yet her makeup is simple for fall. It feels nothing like fall here, what with our 80-90+ degrees weather, but the sun definitely sets earlier and nights are cooler, but it's definitely time to say bye to summer and transition style- and makeup-wise. It was also cheap for a Japanese magazine, just $7!

It came with a Paul & Joe bag too.

And also some Paul & Joe samples, woot woot!

I swung by Mitsuwa before Kinokuniya, but they had sold of of the JS mook already so I picked up the limited edition Bihada Ichizoku chocoate mask. Now I'm thinking I should have bought more since I don't want to open this one just yet, 'cause the packaging's too cute!

Tried my own version of the Voce cover model's look...

Makeup I used...

Point makeup: Visee Glam Hunt Eyes G-3, Canmake Cheek Gradation Peach Stripe 05, MAC Hello Kitty lipstick Strayin', Kiss Me lip gloss, NARS The Multiple in St. Barts and Copacabana for contouring and highlighting, MUFE Aqua Eyes in Pearly Brown 2L, MAC e/s in Texture and Mulch for eyebrows.

How unlike fall is So Cal right now? It was 100+ degrees the other day! Perfect day for a frozen yogurt treat.

Had a little self control this time! Mainly Peach yogurt with a little bit of Cheesecake yogurt + Strawberry yogurt + Dutch Chocolate yogurt, toppings were strawberries, mangoes, peaches, mochi and granola.

My cup's always filled to the max. =P

Oh yes, makes my tastebuds and tummy very happy! Now off you go to treat yourself to a happy weekend! =)


  1. I went to the Kinokuniya in downtown L.A. and couldn't find the JS mook so you lucked out girl. Haha when I was there I picked up VOCE for the exact same reason, the cover model looked so gorgeous! I love the p&j bag inside too =)
