early 2013 acquisitions

First acquisitions post of the year! Because the new year calls for new things, haha :) These are stuff I purchased online a couple of weeks before the end of 2012. Mostly late Christmas gifts to myself, plus a few other purchases. Some of these arrived just earlier this week, and a few parcels are still on their way, but I'm posting this entry now because I'm quite excited to show you this lot!

Something that I just had to have: the December 2012 issues of both Zipper and KERA. Both have Kyary on the cover! I got Zipper from YesAsia and KERA from Asian Beauty Secrets Revealed.

The 12/12 issue of Zipper comes with this tiny AMOYAMO Fashion Book as a bonus, too.

Zipper 01/13! Initially wasn't going to buy this but I needed something else to qualify for YesAsia's free shipping promo. But this one comes with a cute KISS cat bag as a freebie!

f(x) Victoria's HongMa Photobook! This went on my Christmas wishlist the moment I saw it come out. Unlike most idol photobooks, this one is disguised as a travel photobook. It shows all the nice places to go to in Hong Kong and Macau. It's all in Korean though, so I can't read the notes, but the names of the places are in English. It's quite a nice thing to have, really, especially if you're a fan of f(x) and Qiannie in general.

Of course, lots of photos of Victoria being Victoria. SO CUTE.

Christmas presents from sponsors and from a reader-friend! Magic Magic falsies and lenses are from Eyecandys. The pair of falsies on the right are from Laur!! ♥

The eyeshadow quad above, I only put it there to make the photo look cute. Haha. It's actually one of three makeup-related purchases. I'm quite proud that I only spent my Christmas money on these three things, and they're all things I need. Majolica Majorca Majolook Eyeshadow in BR355, Maybelline Baby Lips in Peppermint, and Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Sand Beige (my HG foundation).

A decent neutral eyeshadow quad, finally! Like I said, all of my makeup purchases were things that I need. I didn't want to spend too much on stuff that I wasn't going to use all that much, so I limited myself to just the necessities. I've been wanting to get a nice neutral eyeshadow palette for the longest time, one that is a bit on the warm side and doesn't have blacks. Finally settled on this one after much deliberation. Also, this is the quad that Kyary uses!

Last few gifts to myself: a 2013 planner and mechanical pencil from MUJI + a cute dress from earth music & ecology.

And, last but not least, a shiny new iPod Touch! I got this as a Christmas gift from Aian.. which is pretty much the reason why I've been spamming everyone with Instagram photos, lol!

Aaand that's that! So many pretty things in this batch, so I'm really happy about it. I have a few more items on the way, plus I'll be doing reviews for some of the items above. Lots of exciting things prepared for Little Forest Girl this year, so please do watch out for it! :) ♥
