Dresslink Review & Cooking Shrimp

I have gone through so much these last few days. I actually had my debit card info stolen and am hoping to get the money that was taken from my account reimbursed back to me so right now I don’t have anything to my name other than the paychecks at my job….hopefully not through direct deposit. I’m switching banks after this shit omg. And need I mention a week or so ago I dropped one of my contacts down the bathroom sink when I was trying to clean it? So now I gotta wait till my new one is delivered through Kevin’s work place. I’ve been pretty stressed but Kevin has helped a lot with everything so I’m definitely hanging in there. He also helped me buy my new phone. Still an iPhone 4 but it’s completely new and not glitchy like the old one I switch it out for. Wait for a What’s In My Phone video tag coming up soon ๐Ÿ˜€

On some positive news, recently I been on this photoshoot spree I guess you can call it. I want to make it a permanent thing though especially once I start learning more from my digital photography course this fall. I want to enhance my blog and YouTube the best way I can since this is something I will be taking extremely seriously. It is my passion and has been for YEARS so I hope you guys stick around to watch me grow as I learn more ways to market myself as a fashion/lifestyle blogger ๐Ÿ™‚ You have already seen one of the sets from the first photoshoot I did but here are the rest!

Vassen Daisy Grey lenses
Necklace, shoes, lower lashes, clip in extensions – eBay
Top – Sammydress
Shorts – Ross
Top lashes – Diamond la

I was playing around with some cheap blond clip ins I got from eBay a while ago and my hair chalk again when I did this look. I was going for something similar to a KERA model…or Zipper model…or both? I’m not quite sure if I achieved that but either way lots of people liked this one in particular! Here’s the next set…

Top – SweetSoulShop
Thigh high socks – Hot Topic
Skorts – eBay
Umbrella – H-mart
Top hat – Local beauty supply store

I took these right after shooting a collab video with my good buddy Moku but sadly you guys will have to wait till that one gets uploaded since she’s going through a lot yet, but it is definitely one of the funniest skits I’ve done in a while! She’s a brilliant writer.


After that, I went into the cooking madness one day and made Cajun styled peppered shrimp but I tried to get it to taste just like The Boiling Crab’s flavor. It’s so good if you have never been, you must go at least once! Try their shabang combo, it will knock you off your feet! Here’s what mine looked like after I was just about done cooking it.ย 

It was amazing! I also made a batch of puff puff but it wasn’t as sweet as I’d hoped. Next time I know to add way more sugar!

Lastly, I cooked some tempura and it finally came out tasting like it would at an Asian restaurant this time! I can’t wait to make some for Kevin next time when he comes over.

I started to use my rice cooker again too and had it as a side. I was so full that night haha! I’m slowly training myself to be that wife and mother who knows how to make the best food! I want that title so bad.

Before I head off, I wanted to briefly tell you guys about an online store called Dresslink. Some bloggers have talked about this company before so I checked it out and saw they have a lot of cute Asian style clothing for cheap! I’m always wary of these kinds of stores but if it’s that cheap, it couldn’t hurt to test out a few items here and there right? You’d be very surprised at their quality. Here’s some stuff I’m hoping I can get through them soonish…

Cute right? You can click the link above to go to their main website if you wanna see more. For now, I’m going to cook some lunch for work today. Making some yummy jollof rice. I haven’t had it in quite some time. Till next time!

    I really love all your pictures. I like the first 3 most, because they match my style more. Also, the closeup picture of you with the bleu contacts, what lashes are those? I noticed you didn't list them like the first ones. Are they the same ones?Also all your food looks amazing! I am a shrimp addict and I've never heard of a puff puff, but I'll have to look those up and try them out. Lastly, I'll have to check out the website, that skirt is gorgeous and I've been wanting to get one for the longest time.

    Omg I can't believe your info was stolen! What sickos would do that >_> Hopefully you'll get all of your money back and things!

    I too wanna' grow as a fashion/lifestyle blogger :3 I just don't have the equipment for it ;_;

  3. Once I had money stolen through PayPal, luckily it all was returned to me!!! Good luck, I hope you get it all back too!

    Ahh i really hope you get it sorted ๐Ÿ™ I had this experience a few years back – unbelievably still waiting for my money back from the bank…was it through paypal? I hope your experience is better!

    I also want to enhance my blog and post more outfits and better content, your blog is really inspiring ^^

    Love your co-ords as always and thanks for the link, always on the look out for new clothing sites!

    I hope you get that debit business sorted out soon :< That happened to me before and it was a pain in the ass. Thankfully my bank was very good and I didn't lose anything. They froze my account because of the suspicious activity and all I had to do was go to the bank and ask about it. Hopefully you will have an easy time like I did!

    Also, omg that food looks amazing *A*

  6. Yeah I was tapping into how I plan to dress this fall. I'm really excited for it to get here omgomgomg so many outfit ideas I have in mind! They are different. the top lashes are from Angel Eye in the first set of pics and the second I think was a combo of Diamond glamorous eye and something else I'm sorry I can't remember the other pair I combined them to > < & thanks! Shrimp is so good oh my heavens. Puff puff is a Nigerian kind of food made at most parties or special occasions. It's a delicious snack or side dish!

  7. I know v.v I am so irritated with it all honestly Lizzie…but hopefully it will be alright. I just hate playing the waiting game.

    Yeah the equipment is one thing I am slowly building atm. If I can get my apartment with my boyfriend and make a spare room of ours into my "studio" I'd be so set!

  8. Oh no! Not PayPal ๐Ÿ˜ฎ It's so secure. Man, hackers these days are getting better and better and figuring out how to get through the system it really irritates me.

  9. Yeah I hope it gets sorted out soon as well. I am most likely switching to Kevin's bank or my best friend's bank. Either way, I'd be with a bigger and more responsive staff than these folks I'm dealing with. I will have to wait another 2 weeks to have everything settled and possibly reimbursed to my account. So dumb.

    Thank you -^ ^-

  10. It is so irritating! I still use PayPal though, because they resolved the issue within the day! I can still trust them. ^__^

    Wah! I'm sorry to hear that your debit card info stolen! How did they get a hold of that. Scary world we live in >.<

    I do wanna grow my blog but I would literally have to upgrade every equipment I have. Takes time and money. Good luck to you! ^^

    Wow that's pretty ridiculous. Is it one of those small local banks? I like to stay away from those mostly because of how inconvenient they are, especially in situations like this :<

    Wow, you are really cute!! I love your hair <3.

  14. Jessica says:

    Sorry to hear about the debit card situation.. I hope you get to settle everything out. anyway you have really pretty dolly eyes!! you made me go hungry and crave for tempura -_- hehe

  15. I hope you'll get your debit card back! I can't imagine
    losing mine, I'll go crazy ๐Ÿ˜›
    The deep fried shrimp sure looks yum! And I can't live
    without my rice cooker really ๐Ÿ˜› You look cute with
    that umbrella! Xx

  16. I am still confused on how they did it honestly. It's crazy.

    Yeah it is hard work. I really respect those who made it and became successful. They were really dedicated. It's pretty motivational but I think people like you and I could do it if we put our minds to it ^ ^

  17. Thank you <3

    Oh and interesting I'll have to check that out!

  18. Yeah it's a pity it happened at such an inconvenient time but I know everything will turn out okay. And thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€ Haha didn't mean to make you hungry though lol!

  19. I hope so too -.- I nearly went mad when I first found out about it myself.

    Idk why I'm just now using my rice cooker! I had it for so long and am finally using it lol it makes me feel silly actually haha! & thank you <3

    Oh no, I hope things get sorted out 100% for you ^^

    Good luck on your photography course this fall, I hope you enjoy it very much, I yearn for an awesome camera one day!!

    The blue lenses suit you so well, very cute and dolly!! Plus the food made me hungry XD

    Awesome and cute posts as always keep up all the hard work.

  21. Yeah it's been a long process so far but now I have the police involved. I gotta make a few more steps to hopefully get this whole thing properly dealt with. Once I get my money back I'm immediately leaving my bank…they suck so bad omg. It was through my actual bank account which to me is worse!

    Thanks for saying that! It means a lot! I need to regularly update it though and post consistent photo quality.

    Thank you! You're welcome! ๐Ÿ˜€

  22. Yes it's a really small bank. The ones you'd find at a Walmart :/ Yeah my boyfriend told me to switch to a bigger bank like his. They deal with these matters way better than mine does.

  23. No sadly not yet :/ Still waiting on people to work out a few more things. It's awful.

    Thank you! I love the class so far I can't wait till we do our bigger projects!

    I love those ones a lot! ๐Ÿ˜€ I'm definitely going to wear them a lot more in the future. I appreciate your encouragement Emi <3

Let's engage sis!
