What's on my phone~ Samsung Galaxy 3 apps

So I've been getting asked a lot what apps I have on my Galaxy3 and what I used to customize my phone~ So I'll try my best to list them all.
Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, WellsFargo, AIM

Customization Apps 

Which is where I got my animated backgrounds, icons, clock and lockscreen. [You have to pay for themes, but only like, $1.99 which I find is okay because I find the background worth it]

You will need to purchase 'beans' which aren't that much~ I think I bought 300 beans for $4? And You don't even need that many! I just bought WAY too much. At most, you'd probably need to buy 30-100 depending on how much you want to customize.
Themes like Dialpads, Contacts and messengers will cost beans.. Custom facebook or twitter skins are free. [pictures below]
Most of it is in Korean, there's enough english to get by and kind of figure it out<3

If you get phone theme shop you will need:
I also installed GO Keyboard for my pink keyboard
I also installed Optimization Rabbit Booster which is a cute skin to keep track of my phones stats and downloaded apps and storage...

Photo Editing

Camera 360 Just for the Sweet filter on pictures and the anti shake feature~ It's my default camera<3

Photo Wonder I like the beauty tools like blemish fix, slim, eye enlarger and whiten tool.
Snapeee is the best Purikura app I can find! And it's also a networking application too, it's super cute!
DecoPic is also another cute puri app that has other cute stamps

PicFrame is my go to app for neatly collaging pictures!  
Other Apps

Cute Memo, a nice little app that I use for making lists and reminders. There's no alarm, but that's okay.

My Diet Coach is a helpful app that gives me little reminders and alarms to drink water and to weigh myself or to eat my snack. You can customize your reminders and also weigh in and enter you stats on it. Very Helpful.

My Fitness Pal. My exercise and diet savior. It's been so helpful to me over the years, and now I can update on my phone and see how many calories I have left in my daily allotment.

SimSimi is a cute smart chat robot thing and brings me a lot of happiness because it's so cute and has nice advice.. Or evil advice depending on it's mood...

Those are the only apps I have so far, and I'm still finding more and the database is quickly growing.
I hope this was informative for those who were curious<3

Also, if you have any cute apps to share, please tell me!

Disney Villain Governor Ratcliffe Makeup~ Purple Smokey

So, I celebrated Halloween early with my friends and I went as Governor Ratcliffe from Disney's Pocahontas.
I really loved my makeup for this costume because it was fun to play with colour, especially one I don't use that often~
My face chart was pretty spot on to my final look!
What I used:
White eyeliner for base- Pa
#92- Makeup Forever
Confessional [pearl]- Kat Von D palette 
Breathless- Buxom blusher [that I used as eyeshadow]
Blackout- Urban Decay
Foxy- Urban Decay
Baked- Urban Decay
Puro Armor- Kat Von D liquid liner
False Lashes and Basic black eyeliner

For the lid, I mixed a bit of the Kat Von D and the Makeup Forever together and used the blush to blend.

[You might also be wondering why under my eye is white, but to reduce fall out from the shadows, I used white powder underneath so I could easily brush away the fallout without ruining my foundation]

Tadaa! Purple smokey that's based of Governor Ratcliffe!

My costume was made by a lovely girl, Monet, who does amazing commission work if you're in the Orange County California area [her work email is ]
 And, my group of Disney Villains friends~<3

Hope Everyone has a fun and safe Halloween!


Vassen Rainbow Eyes Purplish Red~ Review

So, I ordered a bunch of lenses from Pinkyparadise to experiment with and play with different designs..
 I'll be slowly but surely reviewing all of them!
 This time I will be reviewing Vassen Rainbow Eyes, Purplish Red lenses... [available here]

Here's the stats~
Diameter: 14.5mm
Water Content: 42%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Type: 1 Year Disposal
What inside: One pair of lenses and one cutie animal lens case

So, I think these lenses are okay... It's not like their uncomfortable, they're actually very comfy and I can't feel them once their on and I can wear them for a long time without dryness.
But the look of them just isn't my style. They look almost reptilian in person and since they have barely any limbal ring the lenses look kind of unfinished to me.
Also, I thought they'd blend more into my natural eye but they don't so that was also a bit disappointing. But I think that I just need to get more used to them? Hopefully??
But I will wear them because they're comfortable maybe around the house or when I do late nights with the girls..
As for enlarging, they're decent. But I think because of the colour/design they don't feel that enlarging to me even though they're 14.5.
Will I buy this design again? Probably not. 
I feel like they would look better on a person with green eyes that want to go to brown because the red would cancel out the green tones.. Yeah.

For comfort, I'd give these lenses a 5/5 but look wise  [personally] I'd give them a 3/5.

What do you think? Am I crazy for not liking how they look?

Diy: Alpaca Ears

So, I've come to you with a simple and fast 'how to' pictorial on making my alpaca ears!
Just in time for Halloween, in case you have no clue what to be, why not be a cute arpakasso!

What you'll need:
Sheet of felt
Hot glue gun
1. You'll need to trace and cut out 4 semi ovals roughly 6 in across and 3 inches tall and pair them off.. 

 2. Hot glue the rounded edges together on both pairs and then turn them inside out.
3. Then hot glue the bottom edge closed.
4. Finally then to hot glue the ear onto the headband~ I recommend folding the bottom part of the ear inward on the head band and gluing it flat and doing the same to the other half, kind of like the above example... Then do the same to the other ear.

Note: I spaced my ears about 3 inches apart~
 I made a pair for each of my friends to enjoy in different colours~

It's something fun and really cheap to make<3
Great for parties, costumes and of course Halloween~

Cute Bows Galore!!!! [Sponsored]

 A lovely shop called bowkuma made themselves known to me and I couldn't be more excited!
They specialize in cute accessories like Mickey or sweets earrings and rings, to amazingly stylish animal ear headbands to their vast assortment of sweet bows~
I was able to pick out 3 things to review and I picked from their collection of bows, because a girl can't have too many bows!
The package came really quickly too which is always a plus..
[and I got a Sentimental Circus sticker!!!!!!!!!!!! Like, I flipped out...]

 I received my set of 3 standard size pastel bows, large bee bow [the size of an american apparel bow] and 2 petite drippy bows~
Each bow has an alligator clip in the back that is very sturdy and doesn't deem like it will come off and the bows themselves are made of great material!!

I was really upset at myself for not finding them before I started buying my bow collection at American Apparel, not only are AA's boys more expensive but over the past 4 months they've all fallen off their clips and I've had to re-glue them and some of them in store had icky stuff on the back of them...

Not these bow! Not only are they affordable but they're SUCH good quality and they are all so well made and come in unique designs like, with eyeballs or blood splatters or very sweet prints [reminiscent of lolita dresses]~

Oh my gosh, I'm so glad to show them off and wear them!
 Here's my favorite to wear as a pop of colour in my hair, over the past 2 days I've gotten a lot of compliments on this bow~ Probably because not a lot of people have seen a bow with drippy frosting on it!
 I love this one too, it's more subtle but the glitter on it is soo beautiful~ and it doesn't turn my hair all glittery either<3

 The pastel bows are so pretty and just perfect. They're the perfect shade of pastel and go with almost all my outfits! It's a perfect staple~
 Okay, I just really wanted this bow cause it reminded me of Winnie the Pooh and was to precious to pass up! The bees are so wonderful! I've never seen a pattern like it and, ugh, it's too cute!

 Here's a more detailed picture of the drip and bee bow<3

Also, Monsieur Alpaca and Mr. Shumon like the bows too!
I'm glad to tell you all that Bowkuma has given me a discount code for you to use!
If you enter in 'Carisse' you get 10% off orders over $5 before shipping~

I am so glad to bring you another lovely shop and a good discount!
Have fun shopping!
