Hair Growth and Bodyline Review

Just finished straightening my hair.   In the course of about a month, my hair has grown a whole inch!  It usually grows around 3/4ths of an inch a month~  I think it's because of the kelp tablets I've been taking.  They're supposed to help with hair growth.  I wasn't sure if it was true, but that's not why I was taking them.  Actually, I just like the taste.

They are really good at suppressing appetites though, that's definitely for sure.  Good for keeping me on a food schedule, so I'm not randomly eating at all hours of the day.  I take a couple after every meal.  I guess they could be good for someone on a diet too.

Anyway, as a result, it looks like my hair as grown back ahead of schedule.   I was predicting at the rate it was going that after I cut my hair back in February of 2009, it would be back to it's normal length by 2 years that time.  In fact, just 6 months ago, I was right on schedule.

I started taking kelp in October.
My hair is actually longer than it's ever been~!  If I only measure the hair strands, it's 19 inches!  That means if I part my hair in the very center, I can get the illusion that it's 25 inches long~
I'm glad I didn't get those 18" extensions though, they'd be completely useless by now, lol.

So, as promised, it's time for another review!  And today, I'm going with my Bodyline order, since it was my biggest order.  This is a great place to start for new Lolitas not sure if they like the style enough to wear it outside.  They also tend to cater to larger sized people.  And even if you're not into Lolita, they sell tons of accessories and things that are very inexpensive.

TaobaoNow and 52Lolita reviews

Oh my, I get featured on the lovely Queenie Ichigo's blog, and end up with a ton of views!   Thank you so much for encouraging me!  And thank you, to my new followers~  I'll try my best to make a good blog so you won't get too bored!

So, I have now gotten everything I have ordered.   I've been writing out my reviews for the past few weeks, tweaking and fixing (I'm a bit of a perfectionist.).  I'm hoping these will be helpful to someone!  I know my Yumetenbo has been getting a few hits lately (I really hope people are getting use out of my measurements, because I could have really used those when I was looking to order!).  I'm still pretty new at this, but I want to be able to help people if they're making decisions on things like this.  I mean, if I was complaining about not having any info, who knows who else is out there at a loss for research, you know?
So, here are my experiences with the shopping service TaobaoNow.com and the Taobao store 52Lolita!

Updates and Room Designing

I haven't been able to stop wearing my heels.  I'm addicted!   This is the person who used to hate heels, because all they did was hurt.  But these shoes, I can walk in them all day~  I'm really just wearing them around to get used to walking in heels.  I can walk at normal speeds and up, but if I start walking slowly, I begin to lose my balance.  I can't get distracted, lol.   I can't wait until the weather warms up!


Last Thursday, Tara and I headed to Mitsuwa~!
