Recollections Creative Year Unicorn Spiral Planner | What's inside?


Well holo again everyone.  As today I'm going to share to you guys my new Recollection's spiral bound planner which I'm suppose to use it for next year, HOWEVER it is an 18-month planner and starts from July 2017, so yeah I started using it already.  

Bitch, this planner is thick as fuck!!  Not to mention the paper quality as for me is excellent compared to the lame thin Typo planner papers.  Basically Micheal's made this as a dupe for Erin Condren (as you can see the physicals features of it) and a little bit of Mambi's Happy Planner inspired on the inside.  

No, you will not get this in Malaysia unless you get to find a personal shopper to buy it for you and no Micheal's don't ship to Malaysia, I've contacted their customer service beforehand.  I had a wonderful journey with my personal shopper who is also a planner addict and she made her brother who study in USA to get it for us.  Thank you so much again :D

Oh well, let's have a look what's inside. 

Are you ready guys? Here we go...

Told ya it's thick

When I received this, BITCH I'M SHOOK!!!

However, I truly hate the dividers.  I was expecting for something extra and over the top Unicorn-y just like the back cover but they're just some pastel blerghhh.  I saw dividers of other planners in this spiral collection and they're more (dopier?) than this.  The only thing the boosts it's sale is the shaker front cover.  

Cover (which you can removed just like EC): 5/5
Dividers: 2/5
Printing & other features: 4.5/5
Paper quality: 10/5 (seriously I love the quality)
Overall: 4.8/5

Still worth it!

I'll have to forget the idea of getting a planner for next year.  This is very enough for me to use as personal planner for next year tho..   Why I said personal? Because I have another new binder for my business planning.  

Very well, thank you so much for reading this entry. 
Happy planning!!!

2017 Goth (Nu Goth they said)

Nu goth which is in my opinion is a millennial Instagram goth that is somehow wearing less heavy clothing but they maintain the eccentricity (is that even a word?) of the sub-culture.  Nu (New) Goth is basically a modernize easy looking dark fashion with some hipster influence to it.  Honestly I don't hate Nu Goth because my country is so damn hot and minimize my goth outfits does help me a lot away from dehydration. 

Remember Mavis, the vampire kid from Hotel Transylvania?  She is an example that holds the vibes of a Nu Goth with that century old black mini dress shirt, and mary jane flats.  Another part of my observation is these fashionistas added some Wicca influence with all these aura moon stones, crescent pendants and hexagonal obsidian jewelries.  Not to forget manufacturers of this millennial dark fashion had printed white faces of the Sun and Moon, and gore looking Unicorns on jet black dress shirts.  Not to mention the hair tho.  It rather be a very black bob or colorful waves of mermaid hair.

Anyways, here's my very own interpretation of a Nu Goth.

Wavy hair.  Pardon my brows, I don't do brows.

Instagram makeup with cat's eye and dark lips.  Brighter eye shadow instead of the common black and red.

I'm wearing a liquid lipstick from LA Girl cosmetic and this color sucks on the build up.  I had to apply a few layers just to look good. Not excellent but good.

Free flow black shirt with modern cut outs.  Look what's on my neck!
It's a layered crescent and black hexagonal pendant. 

Lastly, I just had to post this.

Thank for reading ayy.
Have a nice gothy day :D

DIY fun summer danglers

Welcome back everyone, as for today I'm going to share with you all my latest DIY rainbow dangling earrings.  I was thinking that how it's fun to wear something colorful behind all the black veils and think onix hair as I am referring to the Goths out there.  For the non-Goth people, I hope this would be a fun simple crafting for you as well.

I guess let's get started.  Please say hello to my work/crafting table.  Pardon the messiness btw.

Basically not much stuff needed in this project.  You might have all of them wondering in your pile of junk but anyways I'm still mentioning them to make this post to be lengthy as it is suppose to be.

First of all you need rainbow beads.  I have like a bunch of them because I was so stressed out and all I can think about was bending some wires and make planner charms, which btw you can buy the on my online store *wink*

I have 2 rainbow flows as you can see below.  Then I added the pink tassle so I was like better to have the bead gradient ombre through all the colors including the tassle.  It's more neat I guess.

This is the arrangement of the beads.  Honestly I have no idea how to twist together the headpins with the main chain so that's why I used jump rings to connect them all.  

Adding bigger jump rings to the tassles.

And they're done!!!  Simple af!

Seriously it looks nice tho.

Here's my mandatory DIY guru selfie with the earrings.
