What's up all my cosplay people? Looking for the elusive affordable and high quality school girl skirt to complete your Japanese school girl uniform look? Look no further! I have come across the perfect skirt on Amazon and it comes in a bunch of different patterns including the original navy blue pleated with the white stripes going across the bottom (Which is the one I picked).
This particular skirt I got was only $22! This is a Godsend since nowadays a good quality uniform skirt can run you $35+. The material its made of is 20% cotton and 80% Teylene. It's moderately heavy and feels so comfortable. The skirt is adorable and modest on the body as well. I'm 5'3" and it hits the right length for me. I don't have a white dress shirt but that's pretty much all you need with it plus some cute long socks.
You're bound to find the print you need for your cosplay costume outfit. I even noticed a completely grey version which would be awesome for Bleach Orihime cosplay.
I'm 5'3" and 139 lbs so I went with the size Large. It literally fit me quite perfectly so if you're at my same height and a little over 140 then I would probably go with the X-Large. Don't feel bad as Asian sizing is always a little smaller than USA. Anyway, it's totally gorgeous and is perfect. I would for sure buy again from this same store if I needed another skirt print for a different cosplay.

I got the wonderful chance to try out this small bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil from the Flavor Your Life campaign which is supported by the European Union and Italy. ( www.flavor-your-life.com ) Their website seems to be in the making so for now you can check them out here on FaceBook ( https://www.facebook.com/FlavorYourLifeNA/ ) I got to try this thanks to the lovely crew over at Green MomsMeet :}
Cold pressed olive oil is simply delicious. I love cooking with it on the daily. Included in my little package was a bunch of recipe cards. There was also a USB drive and an olive oil dipping plate. This plate was my favorite thing. It's gorgeous and comes from a site called www.judgedesigns.com
I cooked so many different things with my little bottle of olive oil but one of my favorite things to make is mashed potatoes. All you do is take any kind of potato you like and cut it up into big chunks. You then drop them into a pot of boiling water and let them cook through. Place them into a large mixing bowl and drizzle in some extra virgin olive oil. You can add butter, salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme and garlic. It comes out super fantastic and my whole family loves it.
Make sure to make the true European classic apart of your family meals to delight everyone. Yum!
I actually got these last month but I was very busy moving in to my new house. As you can see my pictures just got a whole lot brighter because I actually have natural light to work with now. Anyway, I thought this set of cards were interesting. They are larger than your typical set of Warcraft cards or any playing card in general. They are pretty much the same with the stats except in the back of the card you will see a full sized art portrait of what's on the stat side.
If you get a full set you can probably play the actual game with them but I see them more of a novelty. I will be framing them and displaying them in my computer/game room. You can check out my video on them here so you can see them live. #GoldenGroundhogWOWLot
