My Project #1 Decoden


It has been a very long time since the last post. I hope everyone hasn’t forgotten me yet. I will slowly pick up this blog again. I’m very sorry about that to the people that likes this blog.


I got this wonderful Decoden kit from Strapya. It is the D’feel X Hello Kitty Sweet Kit. I have an Iphone, so I know the kit will not be enough. That’s the reason why I also got the pink box of rhinestones. I used that for the front part of the phone and filled up some space in the back.

Baby the Star Shines Bright Poodle Going Out Shoes


Want to go out with your poodle today? Baby the Stars Shine Bright’s new  Poodle Going Out shoes will be the perfect match for you. These lovely shoes feature Baby’s logo embroidery on the right, and the cute little poodle on the left.

Personally, I’m not a big fan of poodle prints. They are just too 50’s for me. But I think putting the poodle on the shoes is not so bad. These shoes come in white, pink and black. I love the black one.
