What Got Me Hooked..

Histories behind these tiny things got me interested and got me hooked in collecting them, back in May 2011, I started with this : 

Barely had around 15 charms in my loot, I bought these not to keep them for a collection but to give them away as pasalubongs from my HongKong trip. They got lost in the storage though so I wasnt able to give them away to my friends. November 2011, I started browsing Facebook and came across selling pages for toys from Japan. And In barely a month, I was able to build my stash up to this : 

Not much as I only had around 40 at this time, and this shot was taken mid-December. 
To date, I was able to build my collection up to 421 to be exact. 
and this is how 421 Hello Kitty Charms look like : 

I remove the strings so theyd be less bulky to store. Theres still around 30-40 charms thats not included in the last photo though. Super lucky to have met friends on facebook who helped me get my hands on some Limited Edition ones. Not that Im trying to justify but these tiny things got my attention drawn away from buying makeup -- which I already have too much of and I guess it wouldnt be right if I stock up on more since Im rarely wear makeup lately. 

A lot of people would usually collect plushies or the stuffed ones but I cant have those since Im sensitive to dust. So having these tiny babies is the best option, aside from theyre too adorbs to look at, they dont eat up much space in the storage too, and they dont gather dust as long as the container's covered. I love that these charms are more detailed too than the plush toys since they hold their shape better. 

People are asking me, when would I stop collecting them? I prolly wouldnt. I plan to buy the books that tell the stories behind the designs of the charms and I plan to make trips to Japan just to help me complete the charms from the book. For the sake of those who doesnt have an idea, these charms are designed as symbols of the prefectures of Japan. Each popular thing on each destination gets represented by one charm design, and I plan to have them all. Kakaririn ko talaga to. LOL! 

Anyone here who collects charms too? I can share with you where I buy these stuff. Way cheaper than buying them from Gift Gate. *winks*

Friday na ulit bukas! Whats your plan for the weekend?

FiNALLY! NYX Xtreme Lip Cream Swatches

Sorry ladies, wasnt able to update as promised. 
After being super busy the past few weeks, I got sick and was bedridden. LOL! But heck, better late than never, right? :) 

Back in December. Sol of Digital Traincase asked me to try Xtreme Lip Creams, theyre from NYX and they are fab. I love the ease of application, the opacity/coverage of the colors and the fresh colors that are both wearable and vibrant for everyday use. 

Dont be fooled by the tiny packaging, the tube may have a little product inside but would surely last you a long time since you only need a swipe or two to have full opacity of color. 

This product doesnt need a long intro. Its great and its worth having in your lippie stash. In fact, I want me the whole set coz even the nude colors look great on me. LOL
