Spring Colors ~

Dear friends ~

How have you all been? I was pretty shocked about the bad news from Asia and mainly Japan. But I don't intend to elaborate how I felt and how sad the whole matter is. Unfortunately I have encountered several people (online) that joke about these happenings and I find it really disrespectful (whether you are specially interested in Japan or against) to laugh at other people's misfortunes. I'll give you just one hint: Think carefully before you publish a cynical remark about people's deaths. It just shows how immature you are and won't change other people's opinion about the matter.
To all others: Whether you are able to directly help or donate or not, compassion is all that matters now. But don't use it as an excuse to keep away from your 'normal' everyday life. We have to carry on and do our best, keeping a positive and kind attitude! ☆

btw... I want to thank you for 200 readers! Thanks! My blog is 1 year and 1 month old (as of yesterday) and I'm happy to have so many supportive readers/friends! ^_^ You give me the strenght to carry on with this project!

I just changed this blog's color scheme, do you like it? Spring is soon approaching and I'm craving some rays of sunshine! >.<'
At least I started to naturally wake up as the sun shines through the window and that's a good sign and let's me start the day with excitement!

My order from Yumetenbo arrived today! *yay* I already wore some of the items out! Will upload a big review soon! ~

Some recent sketches ~

The educational version of Corel Painter 11 finally arrived two weeks ago and I started spending hours painting randomly on the computer (which is really fun and relaxing to do at the 27'' imac *so in love*).
Here are some of my random sketches. Actually I should practice perspectives and anatomy but the relaxing part is drawing cute girl's faces ;P
I started to learn how to blend a picture by using the clone source and it's lots of fun! It gives the vibe of an oil painting (not that I've ever done that in real life though...) but feels much more "real" than just using the airbrush function. It's fun to see how the color start mixing and how you can create different shades... I really should draw much more! >_<''

Do you draw? Or what relaxing hobbies do you have? :D

Big E-Shopping Haul ~

I just indulged myself in a big online shopping spree ^_^
The last time I ordered from Yumetenbo was like... in early summer of last year!
I felt like I needed to fresh up my wardrobe and get some cute items for spring. I'm impatiently waiting for the weather to get warmer, I'm just sick of winter! I've been getting colds every 3 weeks (right now I'm already blowing my nose and shivering >_<' ) and our apartment is really cold, despite the heater and closed windows...
anyway, I also bought some new cases for my iPhone, I need a case that doesn't cover the front part of my phone (it's more useful for my workplace).

First picture: Look at all these beautiful colors!! >.<' I wished I could buy every single one of them! This time I chose the violet one ~ 
The second bag (pink with bow) is special: I already own one, but since it looks like it's gonna break soon I'm already buying a second one. I love this bag!!
I also got pink boots and a matching pink trench coat! ❤

Which items do you currently like best? ^_^
