Anime Expo 2014

Last weekend I stopped by Anime Expo to eat (food trucks galore) and shop around a bit!

The crowd was crazy! I've never seen so many people at AX 

Attack on Titan ad LOL I picked up chibi titan keychains as well.

League of Legends booth! 

Ran into my friend Meilyne who lives in SF! 

She got this hanger LOL

With Sachiko at the Swankiss booth! I didn't pick up anything from Ghost of Harlem, KOKOkim or Golds Infinity (going to Japan in 2 weeks anyway yay!) 

None of the booths this year were my "style" but I did find some really cute things by Swankiss that anyone can wear! I ended up purchasing a sheer pale pink dress with sequins and a lace and tweed kind of material crop top which I will hopefully post outfit pictures of soon! 

With Hayashida Saaya! She's so cute in person! Her makeup looks really crazy but it's really pretty on her!!

Headed off to the food trucks and got really full but still wanted to eat more LOL

Short Rib Burrito from Bool Truck! 

Fresh Fruit Waffle from Waffles de Liege! Probably the best waffle I've had in my life... The texture is amazing 

Duck fries from Phantom Food Truck! 

This was probably my least favorite dish... If you've ever had Chinese duck in the buns with onion and that brown sauce it's basically those on too of fries instead of in your bun... Was ok but overwhelming.

There were 10+ trucks there but for some the line was way too long and it was really hot...

That's pretty much all I did this year LOL if you haven't been to AX yet you definitely should to experience it!

Until next time!


Tiffany's Wedding

I know I always say this but I haven't blogged in forever.... I was honestly thinking about not blogging anymore but decided to come back! Hope those following me and others will still read :'D 

Yesterday I went to my friend's wedding and she had me as a bridesmaid! First time but luckily it wasn't an actual ceremony just a reception so no real duties haha 

 With Tiffany! Her reception was pretty sudden they planned everything in only 4 days! 

Other bridesmaid Skye! She's super tiny and cute haha 

Aaaaand I also forced my boyfriend to come with me.... 

The flowers on each table were beautiful! I thought it was funny that they had cigarettes as party favors.

The ballroom! All purple and white~

My favorite part.... Because I know we'll get to eat it soon LOL

Was super fun and tiring and needless to say I are quite a bit... 

Looking forward to posting soon! 
Until next time~

Choker from FIG&VIPER
T-Shirt from BOTB by Hellz Bellz
Belt from Barak
Shorts from Moussy
Shoes from R&E

I really love the belt I got from Barak when I was in Japan 4 years ago! I didn't wear it much before, but it's always been one of my favorite accessories.

Also a new choker from FIG&VIPER! Really wanted to get a choker from them for a while, but the one I wanted was always sold out.

These creeper wedges are definitely in my top 5 favorite shoes that I own at the moment! I saw them in Nuts and (as cheesy as it sounds) I instantly fell in love with them.

Hopefully I'll get into the habit of blogging often again haha~~

Until next time~


Best League Games and Favorite Champions (so far at least)

First off, I'm really bad at League of Legends. If I play with people with high ELO I get like 0/6/1, so all these games are usually solo with people around my level.

My current #1 favorite champion to play is Shaco, but I'm really bad at him.. LOL 

Shaco's Lore: (Currently reading them all ahha)
Most would say that death isn't funny. It isn't, unless you're Shaco - then it's hysterical. He is Valoran's first fully functioning homicidal comic; he jests until someone dies, and then he laughs. The figure that has come to be known as the Demon Jester is an enigma. No one fully agrees from whence he came, and Shaco never offers any details on his own. A popular belief is that Shaco is not of Runeterra - that he is a thing summoned from a dark and twisted world. Still others believe that he is the demonic manifestation of humanity's dark urges and therefore cannot be reasoned with. The most plausible belief is that Shaco is an assassin for hire, left to his own lunatic devices until his services are needed. Shaco certainly has proven himself to be a cunning individual, evading authorities at every turn who might seek him for questioning for some horrendous, law-breaking atrocity. While such scuttlebutt might reassure the native inhabitants of Valoran, it seems unimaginable that such a malfeasant figure is allowed to remain at large.
Whatever the truth of his history might be, Shaco has joined the League of Legends for reasons only he knows. He is a terrifying figure, typically shunned by both his fellow champions and the media at large. Only the summoners in the Institute of War know why such a creature was allowed into the League, but most Runeterrans suspect it to be a means that allows the power that be to keep an eye on the ever-elusive Shaco. Unsurprisingly, this champion is popular in places where madness can openly reign, such as among the power-hungry summoners of Zaun and Noxus.
Whatever you do, don't tell him you missed the punch line.

My best games hehe

and then all these good KDA's but all defeats.. LOL



Diana's really fun to play too, my 2nd favorite!
Diana's Lore:
An unyielding avatar of the moon's power, Diana wages a dark crusade against the sun-worshipping Solari. Though she once sought the acceptance of her people, years of futile struggle shaped her into a bitter, resentful warrior. She now presents her foes with a terrible ultimatum: revere the moon's light, or die by her crescent blade.
Though she was born to the Solari, Diana's inquisitive nature set her apart from her brethren. She had always found solace and guidance in the night sky, and questioned the dominance of the sun in her society. The Solari elders responded to her challenges with only derision and punishment. Diana remained convinced, however, that if she could find evidence of the moon's power, the elders would listen to reason. For years, she studied Solari archives in solitude until she discovered an encoded message hidden in an old tome. This clue led her to a secluded valley on Mount Targon where she unearthed the hidden entrance to an ancient, sealed temple. Inside, among aging relics and faded murals, she found an ornate suit of armor and a beautiful crescent blade, both inscribed with sigils of the moon. Diana donned the armaments and returned to the Solari elders that night. She declared that the artifacts proved others had once worshipped the moon as she did. Her discovery of evidence challenging Solari dominion shocked the elders. To Diana's horror, they pronounced her a heretic and condemned her to death. As the elders prepared her for execution, Diana's anger and sorrow overwhelmed her desire for acceptance. She lifted her gaze to the sky, calling upon the moon for strength. Lunar power surged within her and she shattered her bindings. Raising her relic blade, she turned and slaughtered the elders. With the temple in ruins behind her, Diana resolved to destroy all those who would deny the power of the moon.
''The sun does not reveal truth. Its light only burns and blinds.''
-- Diana

And for some reason when I play Diana I win and can carry (low level) but, shes not as fun as Shaco..




& When I randomly played Ezreal first time cause it was champ rotation...

I don't know if anyone else (who follows/reads?) plays league, but if you do go ahead and add me! &If you think I'm building wrong or smth please let me know LOL

Until next time!


New Ash Hair Color & Purikura!

Since I've always been a big fan of Sayoko Ozaki, I've wanted ash/silver hair for a while now, but I've been scared since I'm on the tan side (or as Nina calls me, Samoan princess LOL) but I just randomly was at the market and was staring at the box and decided to just do it spontaneously!

I'm really liking the new machines at Round 1! This one is the Heroine one ^^ It's very straighforward and fast... they seriously take 6 photos, and then you pick eye size, skin, etc and then go decorate and pick backgrounds instead of the other way around. It takes some getting used to but they turned out cute in the end!

& My Outfit of the Day!
Leather Jacket- BB Dakota
T-Shirt- BOTB by Hellz Bellz
Shorts- Moussy
Bag- Balenciaga
Shoes- Fig & Viper

Hope everyone is well! Unit next time~
