Dream Holic – wig review

Recently, I got my first wig from the brand

It is a wig shop that designs and produces really nice original lolita and sweet japanese fashion inspired wigs to wear with all kinds of cute clothes! ^^

Here is a little collection of my personal favourites:

2013 Tea Party

Apple Jelly


... And the last one is the one I decided to get! ^^

In this review I will talk a bit about:

over all rating


Communication 5/5
It was a very quick deal I made with one of the workers in the shop,
Melva (yannmmm from tumblr), who was very kind and understanding ^^

Price 4/5
Their prices are a bit more than many other wig shops,
but given that their designs are original, unique and very pretty, and the fact that you
get such a good quality object, the price ranges from a bit under 70$ to about 30$
is not too bad in my opinion ^^

Quality 5/5
I think this is an absolutely lovely wig!
It is my second light brown bob-cut wig, but it is quite different I think. My first bob had a rather long, un-cut fringe that I have only trimmed a bit to a side-swept style. The fiber is soft and nice to touch in both, but in this one the fringe is allready cut in a very cute, straight edge that miraculously matches my forehead to the t! It also frames my face nicely, though I just wish it was a tad bit longer.

Shipping 4/5
It took around 20 days maybe, perhaps a bit less, but it was no big issue really. 
I was in no hurry to get the wig anyway, because I don´t really wear wigs in the summer anyway.
I was not bothered by the shipping time at all, and I am sure it will vary from time to time, as I am used to shippings from china being about a week and a half ^^

Over all rating 5/5! 
Because of the wonderful product, the nice quality and the lovely staff I communicated with, I had a lovely shopping experience and I would really reccomend this shop ^^
I hope everyone takes a look at the wonderful range of products they have to offer, and without saying too much I will add that I´ve heard they are coming up with some new designs soon! 
As I mentioned earlier, some of the prices are higher and the shipping time was a bit longer than I am used to, but none of these issued bothered me at all. I think all the other positive things are a lot more important really :-) 

Here are some worn pictures! 


Here is also my outfit for that day! It was a party so I tried to dress up a bit, but it was rather warm, so I had to take of the wig after a while ^^" ehehe...

Thank you for reading this review!
I hope you liked it, and please let me know what you thought of it in the comments below,
and remember to have a look at Dream Holic! <3

Until next time darlings <3

..:Taobaospree - haul + review:..

Hello darlings <3
Today I will present to you the second review I´ve ever done of the taobao shopping service 

And also I will show you my taobao haul, because I am so excited about all my new things and it´s been sooo long since I´ve posted about purchases (since I haven´t really ordered stuff for aaages) ^^

I will talk a bit about:
Over all rating

Communication  5/5
When I sendt the first email, it was around the end of may (25th), and it only took one day before they replied to me (I worked with Zeng)! After placing my order, they told me that they had to order everything and wait for it to arrive. I waited for about a couple of weeks without hearing back from them, before I decided to contact them myself. They appologized for the late reply, and told me they had got all my items allready. At the time I acctually found some new things that I wanted, and they said it was perfectly fine to add to the order. They always replied with a happy and friendly gesture like a smiley-face or a simple ask of how my day was going. Also, when I asked them to write a lower price on my package, they happily agreed to, as well as labeling it as a gift, saving me from big customs. So even though the total process of my order lasted all until now (10th of july) I will give them top grades because they treated me very kindly even when I messed up things and had to correct my order, or wanted to order something more after everything had arrived ^^

Price 4/5
When ordering from taobao, it doesn´t pay off to order small amounts of things. So if you are ordering something, make sure to make it quite a few things, because commission prices and shipping might be a bit high! I will not tell you what the price of my items where, but I can say that the service price by itself, with shipping and extra costs, went up to around 1000 HKD. 
I was not too bothered by this, as I am used to shipping being quite high when ordering from China, but I just want to make you guys aware so you make sure to make your order worthwhile ^^
I will however say that the service they provide, their nice mannerism and over all cheaper offer than I get when I order from Japan, is definitely worth the price! 

Shipping 4/5
The shipping from China itself was ok. It was sendt around the 20th of june, and as I said I got it today on the 10th of july! So it was about 20 days. My waiting time was prolonged because my package was held by the customs post-office in my country for quite a while before they sendt it on to me, charging me a small fee (thanks to the lowered price tag provided by taobaospree). 
It is quite a long time to wait, and usually I get my orders between 1 1/2 to 2 weeks when I order from China, but I suspect the customs might have held my package for a while before contacting me about it also.

Over all rating 4/5
I can´t say anything about the products in conclusion with the shopping service, as they are not produced by taobaospree, but rather from several different individual taobao shops!
So I will just say that over all, this is the third time ordering something from taobao through taobaospree, and they have never dissapointed me. In fact, I think this was the best experience I have had with them so far, as I was treated with such patience and kindness all the time. I would reccomend everyone wanting to order from taobao to look at the offers taobaospree gives you!
Ordering is very simple, by filling out a ready-made excel file and sending it to them in an email. 
So, what are you waiting for? Get shopping! ^^ I will definitely make use of their services again.

Now on to my haul!

 I wanted to get some new things for the new season that is upon us: summer!
Looking through my closet realizing I owned 2 t-shirts kind of shocked me, haha xD
So shopping was the answer!
I divided my things in kind of "themed pictures" ^^

First of all, I put almost all the accessories into one picture!
Love, hate and angel steel-cut badges, icecream and fantasy cloud buttons, horror-gore and cherry buttons, SNK scout legion steel-cut badge, daisy necklace and two freebie rings! ^^

I felt like my order this time was almost themed around smileys, haha!
I was inspired by the super cute Ayumi Seto around the time when I ordered this...
 Smiley face vest/shirt, socks, button-badge, ring and purse! ^0^

I also got my dream bag (finally) and a super cute cardigan!
School uniform pink cardigan and a super cute my melody bag (that is bigger than I expected!) <3

Oh, and the stuff I ordered after all the other things:
because I suddenly found this set and totally fell in love at once!
Super adorable short sleeved blouse with a lovely underbust onepiece dress! <3

And that was it! 

My package came to about 2 kg, and I think its my biggest taobao haul ever! 
I love all my new items and can´t wait to wear them in outfits

Which one was your favourite item?

Thank you for reading my review, I hope you enjoyed it!
Until next time, stay kawaii, happy and lovely! ^0^

☆coming up☆

I have taken a brake from this blog for a while, but now as summer is on, and I´ve got a break from school and studies until I go to university in Oslo this fall, I have planned a few goodies for you guys!
(I´d like to mention that this list is not put in any order, and I can´t guarantee when the posts will be up.
Also, there might be changes.

This is what you might expect:
  • Taobaospree haul and review
  • 5 kawaii things: summer-edition
  • Kawaii baking entry
  • Dream–Holic wig review
  • Kimura Yu: get the look!
  • Kawaii characters: Keroppi
  • KOKOkim review
  • Outfits 

The main reason for not posting until now is health and mental-health problems, the worst most crappy phone ever for taking picture, bad self-confidence, and lack of having an interesting life...
... ahaha

Well, right now I am employed in my usual summer job at the local library, where I also work with tourist information (I will buy a new phone with the money I earn * ^*). The most exciting thing going on right now is that I am moving across the country this fall to go to university in our capital, Oslo, studying japanese ^^. Also I succsessfully obtained a ticket for the live show of
Welcome to Nightvale, as they are coming to Oslo during their Europe tour this autumn!


I hope you enjoyed this brief entry, I hope you will stay tuned for future updates!
I really wanna do some reviews on stuff like games or movies also,
but I don´t know how interesting that would be, hehe ;V;
(please let me know in the commentsif there are anything you´d like me to write about on the blog)

Thanks for reading!
