Puri's Doodles

So I've been on a good drawing streak, and I owe it all to fandom. Two things I absolutely love have been merged into one, and I am so on this boat: Sailor Moon and Adventure Time. Hell. YES. I've been doing a lot of drawings, but I'll keep from posting every little thing here. It would just be easier if you visited my drawing tumblr site, Puri's Doodles (lol sounds soo silly). Hope you like, plenty more to come!

Puri's Doodles this way! Enjoy! ^_^


Doodle Time: Sailor Fionna!

So I love jumping all over Tumblr, people are hilarious and I love keeping up with people's art pages. Never have I been so inspired to start drawing -immedietely- after I saw this from gurgling's Tumblr

I didn't even THINK of the possibility of a Sailor Moon / Adventure Time mash-up, even though I love both, AND the whole Fionna's bunny ears & ball gown is inspired from Sailor Moon! Bah! So I grabbed my pencil and paper and got down to it!

I already blabbed about this on my tumblr account AppleTreesRTall, so I'll just copy n paste:
So here is Sailor Fionna, with her loyal cat friend Cake ^_^ The idea of using Beemo as her magical stick was really original, but I think Fionna is all about swords, so I added an upgrade to the wand: laser sword! Beemo just has to concentrate really hard, and it’s only for a short time- super special attack? XD

More are on the way, so stay tuned! :3


A bride's glass slipper

I was just perusing my online shops, adding to my list of things I want to buy, when I came across this, and had to share:

 Is this not the most perfect Cinderella shoe? It would be perfect for a bride! Just think, a gorgeous heel also doubling as their "something blue".
Of course I went a completely different route, with a tall-ass, bright red shoe. It was a shoe that the Mr. was actually interested in ;) I gave in because I told myself I would wear this shoe every year on our anniversary.


I'm a Mrs. !!

I take it you all have noticed the extreme lack of... anything, right? Well, as of September 23rd, I am now a Mrs.! Huzzah!

With all the long-distance planning and organizing, I was really getting stressed and started doubting having the big day. Not in the way that I love my Mr., but just if having a ceremony/reception and attempting to gather people and adding the finishing touches was worth it. Many tears were shed and fists shaken in anger, but in the end ( and I mean the end of end, 7am the morning of the wedding!), I did all I could do, and I let myself go with the flow of the big day.
First the hair was done, and bam- instant mind explosion. During our trial run, it was kinda rough, because even though I had a picture, I felt like there was some miscommunication between the both of us. But that morning she told me that it was kinda annoying her that she couldn't get it right, and so she wanted to make it perfect. Friggen A, she did! Then there was make-up. Another thing I wasn't too psyched about, because after the trial, I looked in the mirror in some natural light and felt like I looked a little cake-y. That as well as my mascara was already smudging (and this stuff was supposedly waterproof?). But again, once she was done, wowza! If you ever can get faslie eyelashes, DO IT. THEY ARE AMAZING. I usually wear glasses, but I wanted my eyes to really stand out, so I donned the dreaded contacts (usually it takes me 15-20 minutes to put them in, I'm not even exaggerating, but today it was record speed, 2 minutes, huzzah!!). Ahh and the dress... since I did my fitting before moving to HK (late march), and the dress was being kept in the states, I had no real idea if it would fit or not. At the fitting, it was a little bit snug, so I knew I needed to lose weight. So after using the estate's gym and working up to 4-5 classes of Zumba a week, all I could do was cross my fingers. The first time I got to try it on when I came back home, it was a litttttle tight. It didn't look bad at all, but I was afraid I was going to walk around like a robot all day. Then the morning of the wedding... how the hell did this go to fitting PERFECTLY?! Especially after many a bad-meals and lack of gym time??? Flippin miracle!
One thing I didn't expect to go my way was the bouquet. I'm horrible with flowers, and the only type I know I really like are peonies. Unfortunately, since we were having a fall wedding, they are not in season. I had one idea set up with the florist, rather early in the planning stages, but about 1 1/2 months before the wedding day, I went back to it and started having doubts. After hours of scouring the internet, hoping for something unique, bam! Roses with White Cattleyas (with a yellow center). The florist said it could be arranged, and I waited patiently. When she brought the bouquet in, my heart just started to swell. Never had I seen a bouquet like this, so it already had the uniqueness I wanted. But simply put... it was just perfection! If it weren't for the tears in my eyes from my hair being pulled and yanked, I probably would of cried a little out of happiness.
The one thing that actually didn't go our way that we thought woulda been easy-peasy was our cake. LOL oh man... the design came out soo.... badly.. I think what happened was the consultant we met with left after we did our taste testing/design meeting. We did this before we left for HK, so again, another thing done rather early. He was actually great, and felt like he understood what we needed. After we made our stationary though, we sent the cake company a copy so they would have more of a feel of our design, and learned that our contact left and moved to the east coast. I asked if they understood the concept we had for our cake, and the new person mentioned that they had all the notes. In the end... notes are not as good as a 1-on-1 chat :/ Oh well! Maybe the cake will be more photogenic than what it was in person? ^^;;;
With all the ups and downs, you woulda thought I was a mad person leading up to the big day. You don't know how many times I had to tell my Mr.,"I swear... you know I'm not like this...", which looking back on that... seems really sad and pathetic.. LOL. Wedding planning definitely is not my forte though, lesson learned. But now I have soo many amazing memories from our wedding day, strengthening our love and commitment to each other. So with a clear mind and heart, I can honestly say that our wedding day was absolutely worth it! 
We are waiting on our photos from the photographer, so I'll probably post another entry or two about wedding times ( I haven't even told you what the theme(s) was/were *gasp*), so stay tuned! :3


A year already?

I can't believe it's already been a year since Adam popped the big question! After getting engaged in Seattle, we didn't have any idea what would happen, especially moving to HK. Our anniversary fell on our Thursday date-night, and Adam surprised me by making reservations @ the restaurant, Kitchen, at the W hotel here in HK. We love the W hotels- we got engaged while staying at the one in Seattle, and our wedding will be at one of the two in Chicago, so it was nice to add to our little trend. When we got there we had enough time to sit and enjoy some cocktails at the bar.
A shot of my first ever Cosmo. I think it's hilarious that only the very very tip of the rind peel is in focus, LOL.
The Woo Bar. I love the mood the W hotels have, there is always a real DJ mixin and setting the mood.
After some drinks, we moved on to their restaurant, Kitchen (lol, silly, right?). We were both surprised to see that there was a buffet, but when we took a closer look, it was a mighty fine selection! I was surprised to see cured meats, a fresh seafood selection, sushi, dim sum, HK style and American style food, cheese platters, and a ton of desserts. Was very grateful the dress wasn't too tight!

Adam was sweet enough to treat me to some karaoke afterwards, but before we headed out, we had to take a picture at the big W XD

Soo psyched for September. We get to come home, see family and friends, and become husband and wife! Just about 80 some days now, crazy!!!


Muh songs.... TT-TT

Sad news to report: All the music I had on my ipod got deleted, due to an accident Adam made D: All my old CDs I grew up with in HS... Japanese/Korean music I found through college... gone *sniff sniff* So I'm starting from scratch again. I downloaded three albums from iTunes:

Paramore: Brand New Eyes

On iTunes, they had a special going on for this album, I think like 50% off? I love Hailey's voice, and a couple of her songs were my karaoke go-tos in Japan. Good times. 

This is one of my fav songs from her, so amazing, I want to belt out that chorus like she does.

Dia Frampton: Red

Dia was the runner up in the 1st season of The Voice. I was a big fan of hers every since the blind auditions, and wishes she would of won! I think there was only a 3-4% difference from 1st and 2nd that season... doh! But she is still doing it! Album up, and touring :D I love her voice, and this is usually my go-to album when I am doing errands. 

After The Voice ended, I went to Youtube to get my Dia fix, and found out that she did a TON of covers (she was doing about one a week for a while!). I can't get to my favorite ones with the search function Blogger has, but here is one of her singing Adele's "Someone Like You"

Karmin: Hello

I first heard Karmin when they were the music guest on SNL. The girl's live voice is AMAAAZING, and to top it off, she raps XP. Plus, how can you deny her hairstyle?

This is their latest single, "Brokenhearted". <3<3<3

I just found this video, apparently she went on Ellen in 2011, and hol crap she is rapping SO. FLIPPIN. FAST! It's insane! (And holy crap I didn't know they were engaged, crazy!)

Anywhoo, so those are my current 3 albums. I am looking for more music, so suggestions are welcome!
