Online spring shopping from SweetSoulShop + New video hair journey

Hello all! Thanks to every single last one of you who commented on my last blog post or contacted me on fb about my misfortunes I was experiencing. Thank you times a millionbajillionzagillion times over, seriously.

Because I work at a resort that has an indoor waterpark, spring break has been really crazy at my job so I've been working quite a bit :/ I'm going to change my availability hours back to how I had it before though because it's cutting into my study time. I feel awful since I have been feeling so disengaged with the online world this past month. But I do have good news since my last blog post! Kevin and I are doing much better now :D His boss is finally letting up on his hours and they are giving him about 2 days off a week like it should be so we see each other pretty regularly now. School is still a little uncertain but with time I have a feeling I will see through it considering that I made some new study buddies the week before school let out for spring break and we all have the same classes. My laptop is back and running smoother than before now and I switched from AVG to Avast to better protect my laptop from viruses. A co-worker told me in recent years, AVG's been falling on it's game with protecting against viruses or something along those lines and that Avast is better. I did some research and found out he was right. I was informed that I had 3 on here before I took it to the shop...no point in wasting money in a product that doesn't work. Once you fuck with my internet, it's a wrap for ju mai fren! As for my eyes, I got my new contacts from my honey's job and they are simply splendid, I can see crystal clear now! I still need to see an opthamologist about my retinas soon.

Overall, things have been seeming to piece themselves together bit by bit. Thank God, I really I feel so blessed at times like these. I actually am getting a clearer idea of what kind of style I am going to try to shoot for next. It's not significantly different from before but then again, you guys will see for yourselves. I am addicted to Wanelo and Store Envy atm. It's helped me find so many good finds! I bought some stuff off of this one shop too called SweetSoulShop, although I am pretty sure they get most of their stuff from Taobao which is cool with me :)

They sell really cute stuff, here's what I ordered last night and I cannot waiiiiiiit to get them omgomgomg~

I think it looks so sweet and girly, perfect for the summer time! As much as I love my dark monotone colors, I am going to try more pastel colors for the season plus, I feel like wearing more dresses. As a matter of fact, these are mostly dresses I got lol!

~LINK~
Maxi dresses are delightfully elegant and although I have 3, it doesn't hurt to buy one more :) Plus this style is quite pretty and was only $15!

This one right here reminded me of something I've seen from Liz Lisa so for only $20, I had to get it. I hope the quality is pretty good and the long sleeves don't keep me too hot to wear in the summer time. Although knowing Texas heat, it just might.

Saving the best for last, the most adorable pair of shoes I will own once I receive them and they have crosses on em. /dead. These were $36, so I spent the most on these out of my whole order but for these type of shoes, I say that's a good price damn it.

My total ended up being $126.00 USD and this could be the bargin for kawaii ass clothing newb in me talking but I felt like it was a reasonable amount to pay...? Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. Anyway, if I went through Taobao I have a feeling I'd be paying more so in my eyes I see this shop as a good place to look for cute clothes and shoes. They also sell circle lenses and wigs but we all know I have way too many of both. If all goes well with my items, I will be buying from them way more in the future, especially their shoes! Yes, I will do a review on each item when I get it for you guys! 

Lastly, imma leave you all with this video of my hair update. It's long overdue but yes, I'll be making more of these soon for you guys in the future so please like, share, favorite, and subscribe~

  1. Seee? Things are already getting better :)

    Everything you picked out was really cute, but.....I wouldn't exactly call that amount for Taobao quality items a "bargain" xD. That's about $30 for each item.

    Considering that the items are typically of worse quality than F21......x)

    It's not totally outrageous, (considering the style is unique from anything you'd find here) but it was hardly a steal.

    Your hair looks fantastic! I'm a little jealous :P

    1. Ah really? I never knew that, I always figured with the way so many girls rave about Taobao shops that they'd have pretty good quality. Hearing that kinda blows but it was worth a shot. I suppose I will have to evaluate it more thoroughly when I receive the items. Maybe next time I'll get brand items instead. I'm kinda just slowly working my way up the ladder to that but very cautiously as I do not want to over spend on clothes -__-" Thanks for letting me know!

  2. It's good you and your man are getting more time together! You seemed so distressed in your last post, so yay for more time together! Gah, all of those things are too kawaii ♥ I like the shoes and Liz Lisa-like dress the most :D Can't wait to see you wear them! Also, that seems like a fairly good price for all of the items you bought. Things can get so expensive, so buying 4 key pieces will be good, especially for S/S!

    1. That's how I feel too :) I hope they last me quite some time as well. I just want to incorporate more j-fashion into my wardrobe. I have a little but not nearly enough like I want. Thanks for the comment!

  3. Soooooo good to hear everything's lightening up a bit cuz was a really worried from last post tbh D': Your work, school, and having more time to see Kevin. :D Your hair looks so strong and thick in the video, it flows nicely and everything, haha<33 * 3 * Also, I really love the idea of the 3-month stretch. Will definitely try!! I mean, yea the hair is a bit difficult to manage when you go from 6wk touch up to 3 month but I think it'll really shows in the long run like yours to avoid overprocessing which will completely thin you out...learned that the hard way. :// Do you recommend any products???

    1. You sound just like me which is why I made the switch to stretch for that long! It really will pay off overtime :) I really like Organic Root Stimulator's products like their deep conditioner as well as their moisturizing lotion. I like long term relaitonship's leave in conditioner from Herbal Essence too. I just finished my last bottle of it and need to get another one soon. I have a few others like Africa's best oil blend. It's sooooo good for deep conditioning and sealing your hair. There's so much more haha I'll make a video of the others when I can!

  5. I am so glad to see that everything is going better and that you get to see Kevin more!!! You would look so kawaii in those clothes! I also wanted to say that I love your newest youtube vid. It's def a trend that I notice on AMBW tumblrs. It's so refreshing to see someone keep it real and encourage ladies to be themselves. Also, my bf is coming to see me in May and I am super ecstatic!

  7. Have you bought at asian-fashion-wholesale before? I've heard they're cheaper. I'm so hesitant to buy these online clothes because they can be so hit and miss with the fit.
