Annyeong haseyo mermaids! It’s scorching hot this afternoon @.@ So this line is perfect for this hot hot September day!
Etude House is always creating lines that will tickle any little girl’s heart! Make that any one who is young at heart! And they recently came up with a collection that is derived from fairy tales. Introducing Bling in the Sea, a sparkling, arcane story of a Little Mermaid under the sea.
A little mermaid lived in an arcane sea-world and while she was looking around the shore, she fell in love with a prince at the first sight.
The little mermaid visited Ursula, sea-witch, to ask her for help and Ursula said “ I’ll give you this bright jewel box filled with the twinkling of the sea, but the twinkling will burst like a bubble after 3 days and will spread out in the world.”
The little mermaid adorned herself with sparkling and the prince fell in love eventually.
On the third day, the little mermaid generously spread all the sweet and happy things that she could get from the sparkling and shared it with everyone in the world.
Now, ETUDE introduces the dazzling sparkle to public.
A little mermaid-inspired sparkling love story under the sea.
The Bling in the Sea collection consists of eye, face and lip makes and as well as a nail polish collection. What’s special about the Bling in the Sea Sparkling Nails is that these are limited edition!
- Fancy Glitter Nail Polishes- It shines and sparkles with plenty of glitters that reflects lights, and each color has different color, size, and texture of glitter so it shows different result.
- Non-chip, long-lasting effect- Sparkling nail color maintained much longer with stronger adhesion of base so it is not chipped easily even in the water .
- The best ratio of glitter and color base- The best ratio makes it possible to apply color base cleanly and apply glitter softly.
The shape of the polish bottle is pretty plain, but good thing they adorned it with pretty prints like this! :D

Well, if you haven’t heard of it yet, Warm Bodies is a very very funny zombie movie :D Made me and my friends laugh throughout the movie!!! The movie actually made me feel good afterwards! Feels great to be kicking and living!
^The lead actress looks a lot like Kirsten Stewart!
It was rated PG13, so it was the perfect rating for me :))))) Nothing gross!!! <333 They had a lot of action scenes! Which made me feel like I was playing Left 4 Dead (^.^)/// The scenes where more thrilling and exciting than horrifying :D The only thing that was creepy in the movie was the 2 zombie children (o.o)
Lavender~ <3 I was supposed to get the Rose Oil right? But then I was drawn to the scent of lavender :) It’s so calming and just perfect!
Oh and my grandma was the one who introduced me to lavender scented stuff which I really loved! She used to give me those lavender scented lotions from Marks & Spencers and she also gave us lavender oil to apply before sleeping!
It has a rich aromatic scent that relives stress and anxiety :> Just smelling it makes me so relaxed and calm afterwards :)
