♦ Convention Preparation Part I ♦
Since we’ve decided to attend the convention as vendor, we started to worry about “WHAT TO SELL?”
If you have followed our blog or Facebook long enough, you probably knew that we sell Alpacasso and… Alpacasso! Few handmade items sold here and there but mostly Alpacasso. OKAY, this is a problem for us, hmm.
We want to provide varieties of merchandise in the convention and keep our customers eyes busy. Of course quality products are our first priority. Rest assure that our items are clean, well made and kawaii! LOL. I said it “clean!” yup, as I discovered few vendors were displaying “dirty” merchandises and others were displaying merchandises looked kind of “old-ish” I told myself, I’ll not let that happen!
This is our convention banner, please look for this banner and come to say “hi” to us, we LOVE to meet each and everyone of you ^_^

♦ Kid’s Alpacaffe Are Here To Serve You! ♦
I’m SO excited to receive these cuties! Finally they arrived safely and sound without stuck in Customs this time! I was wondering which Alpacaffe is more popular than others, so I ran a quick survey on my Facebook page. I found out that they are ALL popular, it’s hard to chose! ^__^ So, I decided to get them all!
These adorable cuties are approximately 12 cm high and well made. First generation Alpacasso Kids couldn’t stand that well but after few series, they are standing tall and cute!
Yuki “open” chan!
Cute side shot!
Each Alpacaffe staff is wearing dark green coffee cup plastic tag. I love the design very much, it looked very much like Starbucks! ^^
Yuki “maid” chan is wearing pretty pink apron ♥
I love the side shot, they got perfect cute little nose and pointy nose, so adorable!
Base Jr “Welcome” chan~
Amuse even made a special label for this collection to fit the “coffee” them ^^ Love it.
Momo “maid” chan. Is the lady in pink! She’s wearing cute blue apron~
Oh, Momo, why are you so cute? :3 ♥
They are available in the shop if you want to find out more about them. I’m planning to make a product video soon, so please come back to check the video if you want to watch them in live action!
I also took some pictures with these alpacaffe, I love all these pictures ^_^ I hope you will like them too!

♥ 3CE UV Fresh Fluid Review ♥
I was searching all over the Internet trying to find reviews on 3CE UV Fresh Fluid but I couldn’t. So, I thought maybe I should write a simple review to help others. I am a “read-reviews-before-purchase” type of person. I don’t really believe 100% of what review said since it’s a personal experience and it might not apply to my case, BUT I do put it into consideration before I purchase something, specially makeups.Read More»

♥ Kawaii Japan Fashion In This Fall ♥
こんにちは (Kon’nichiwa)! I love Japan kawaii fashion! Every time I see their fashion magazines I have huge craving to buy their clothes, OMG, I wonder if you all have the same feeling like me. >_< I like Japan and Korean’s fashion, they both have distinctive styles. Japan tends to have more “kawaii” element in their design. In contrary, Korean’s fashion is towards elegant, clean design. I LOVE both! ^^
Don’t you love the red plaid dress? It is so かわいい!!Read More»
♥ J-Fashion Outlook From RuRu ♥
Hi guys! I wanted to post Japan fashion for the longest time! Since I did not find the style that I really like, therefore I didn’t want to post anything. Sorry being strange but the “fashion” I like isn’t necessarily the current fashion. So, if my style doesn’t suits you… sowwy >_< LOL.
I also want to do reviews on Korean cosmetics. Recently visited Korea and I LOVE their cosmetics! I was trying to find out reviews on some of the products that I bought from Korea from Youtube BUT, can’t find any. So I decided to make my own review. I’m still thinking to make a video? or just blog with lots of pictures. Hmm, I think later choice is faster and easier for me. (less editing…hehehe) What do you think? Should I show ma face to the world and scare everyone in front of their monitors OR just posting lots of Before & After photos?
Here we go, my pick of the day ♥
♥ Makeup Review EM by Michelle Phan ♥
I guess a lot of you already heard that the Youtube makeup guru Michelle Phan created her own makeup line called “EM”. I was SO excited because there are few products that I’m really really interested.
I guess her makeup line has sort of Korean influence, this is what I like about her line. Unfortunately I can’t afford to purchase her entire makeup line but I’ve managed to buy the most important item which I THINK I’ll love to use…” Makeup Mood Enhancer” . I bought “Dewy Skin” which has pearl white sparkling effect.
I really liked the mood enhancer, it will brighten my skin or I can use it as highlight on my cheekbone or nose.
The mood enhancer is light and it has sparkling ingredients. Dewy skin doesn’t have any color so it’s perfect to mix with any foundation to add shine. This will make your foundation look more radiant and with the light reflection, it will sort of “hide” large pores and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. thumbs up for light reflection!
2nd item that I got is “The great cover up” Very sad that I bought the wrong color I bought light warm. It’s too yellow and dark for me. I should’ve chosen either light cool or fair neutral Oh, well. I’m not a big fan of concealer. I use ONLY when I have to cover my sun spots on special occasion -_- Yup, I do get sun spots easily….because I have fair skin.
The concealer feels thick, I suggest to apply small amount and pat on the area.
Sorry for the ugly hand -_- I really need to take care my hand by applying hand cream! You should see the small amount of concealer and right under it was the blended concealer. You can see it is “floating” on my skin? That’s either too thick or the color isn’t match my skin tone. Make sure to select right color.
I find Michell’s website hard to select right colors because every monitor displays different tone and you’ll be gambling when buying…like me -_- Overall I do like her product and wish to buy more in the future such as lip balm and eye shadows!
OK, I hope you enjoyed this little blog. Please let me know what other products that you want to see review on ^^ I’m currently restructuring the whole blog site. I’m trying to write interesting things such as beauty, fashion, kawaii items more.
♥ Bonbonribbon Sanrio ♥
Oh my goodness! Sorry guys for being away from blog world. I think it’s time for me to be back
I came across this new Sanrio character “Bonbonribbon”, I was “OMG! my favorite BUNNIES!” I couldn’t resist this cute stuffed bunnies. ^^
It’s almost like crochet amigurumi but not exactly. What I’m going to do is to try to crochet like that and see how it looks like ^^ OH MY….cute bunny and can’t resist!!
Oh, by the way, I have new information on Alpacasso September collection.
Aren’t they cute? Since my last shipment still on hold in U.S. Customs, I am SO afraid that they will hold these shipments as well. :S Tell you the truth, I am very discouraged and disappointed. It’s only a small business, why they want to hold my packages fro nothing? If I need to pay for duty, let me know. I’ll be glad to pay whatever they charge me but please don’t hold my shipments.
I apologize to my customers who ordered Sailor Alpacasso… hopefully I can get it soon… or I have to replace with this September collection. *sigh*
Anyway, I’m planning to open a small pre-order batch. I’m not planning to bring anymore alpacasso to my shop because of the Customs situation, so, you only can buy through pre-order….sorry for the inconvenience. >_< Pre-Order information will be released in here and my Facebook page, so please let me know if you have any questions.

Birchbox July Sample Review
My May Ipsy Bag Review Video ♥
As usual I want to post a quick short video for what I got from Ipsy. It up to a point that I need to chose between Ipsy or Birchbox. >_< For past few months I’ve received similar products from both companies and I have to admit I liked Ipsy’s selection better than Birchbox. BUT, Birchbox has better brand… so -_- I don’t know.
Oh well, I’ll worry this later when I come back from my trip, let’s enjoy this crazy fast forwarding short video from me. Hopefully you’ll find something interesting enough. If you want to find out more about some items appeared in the video, you may go to Ipsy.com and purchase it.
My May Ipsy Bag Review
I love Pacifica perfume that I got for this month, Tahitian Gardenia… smells SO good!!
During my travel, I’ll have this new service called “Shop w/RuRu“.
It’s a time limited shopping experience. I’ll give enough time for you to chose items that you like, BUT please remember to pay for the item before time is up. I won’t be able to purchase it if time is expired Since I’ll be traveling to places, I won’t be able to go back and purchase again.
I promise the price will be fair plus regular shipping charges, I’ll bring these items back to U.S.
I shall have a test tomorrow and see how you guys think, I want this to be a special event! ^^ Let me know if you have any ideas to improve this service~~
Video: May 13 Birchbox Unboxing~
Hi guys! Wanted to post a quick video for my Birchbox beauty sampler for month of May. I won’t be able to post any sampler review till I come back from my trip so…..^^
I’m so far liked few things in the box; perfume and hair detangle serum. I’m always a big fan of perfurme…as long they are flowery or fruity. ^^
“folle de joie” is one of my favorite perfume now ^^ I’ll take it with me on the trip
My Birchbox unboxing beauty review May 2013
I want to share picture of my new pet Scratch! Oh well, he’s not a real pet BUT I love him as my pet…lol Anyway, here are few cute pictures that I want to share.
Oh, talking about Scratch, I was furious when I got him from a lady who is selling him. She never told me that Scratch were defective! One of his leg was twisted backwards and it was so obvious. I really don’t like people doing that, specially when dealing people.
I won’t sell defective items to my customer UNLESS it is the last one and I always ask customers and TELL them about the item. I do send pictures so they have a clear idea what’s wrong with the item and I always compensate them; either discount or little gift to go with the item.
As a customer, I’m not going to buy anything from her and I think she’s not treating me honestly & fairly. Bad experience -___-
I had to re-sew his leg -_- poor thing, but now he’s good!
My friend said Scratch is a big bully to Mao Mao… :’(
