Time to get outside, enjoy the nice weather, and get in shape for swimsuit season. Loopy and Saucy splurged on a couple of pairs of Sketchers Shape Ups while in Calgary on the weekend. Will they work? The mere act of getting out and walking might be what does the trick but Saucy is game to give it a try anyway.
Asian treats and groceries from Chinatown! This weekend's finds include strawberry Kit Kat bars:... and more bottles of Ramune, the Japanese marble drink. Just remove the cap, invert it, and use it as a tool to release the marble into the neck of the bottle to open the drink. The marble with swirl around in its confines while you take sips.
Loopy lurrves Japanese Pocky sticks! Saucy does too. These won't help getting ready for swimsuit season...
Hair Tinsel... Beyonce wore these to the Grammy Awards. These fine strands of mylar are woven and tied to the base of about ten hairs on your head, near the crown. If attached securely, you can wash and gently brush your hair and they can last for weeks. Saucy took Loopy to a salon to have a few pieces put in at $7.50 per set of three.
Unamused, Saucy hit eBay when they got home from the Salon and ordered a pack of 2800 assorted strands for $16.99 (with free shipping) from a vendor overseas. They arrived quickly and Saucy has been practicing her hair flair on any visiting Cheerio that stands still long enough. She has this brilliant idea to master the tight little knot required, teach a few of the Cheerio mothers and some of the Cheerios... and have a fundraiser called BEAR HAIR FLAIR next year... what do you think of that, Dear Reader?
Oh, and unless your hair is quite short, make sure you order the 1 metre lengths... anything shorter is just too fussy to work with. There are plenty of instructional videos on YouTube.
Saucy cashed in her Shoppers Optimum Points for a set of Harajuku Lovers Summer Cuties scents. G, Love, Angel, Music and Baby, all dolled up for the beach and smelling like summer. Too cute for the vanity!
Jewelry artist Tarina Tarantino turned Saucy and Loopy onto embellished tiaras, over the top Hello Kitty necklaces and hot pink hairdos. Now, she has a line of cosmetics:
The packaging is glitzy and stunning... Saucy and Loopy are enchanted. An overwhelmingly beautiful selection of pinks for eyes, lips and face. Time to stock up! Can you imagine the photo shoot possibilities? Where on earth can Saucy find a hot pink wig so far away from Halloween?
Loopy lurrves her Tokidoki messenger bag and laptop case. The patterns are so cute and fun:
Now, Tokidoki has created a line of cosmetics for Sephora. It's bright and playful, just like the brand. Tokidoki means "sometimes" in Japanese... but this stuff is cute all the time.
Lastly, Saucy is way into her May scrapping challenge. She did four more layouts today alone. They're drying right now so she'll take pictures tomorrow. Luckily, she's also working digitally:
Reader, Saucy and Loopy enjoy a good tip from you. What are you into right now? Spill.
