REVIEW: LOVEsick Kitty Ankle Socks

Reviewing LOVEsick Kitty Silhouette Ankle Socks from HOTTOPIC
     I purchased these in June from the Hot Topic website.  they cost just under 5USD, not including shipping charges.
     I thought they were really cute, despite the cost.  5USD for a single pair of socks?  Outrageous...  But I purchased them anyway, didn't I?  Below you can see the packaging.
     The are cute and comfortable.  They are made from the same material as a pair of tights.  About the thickness of a good pair of Winter tights.  I found this to be a little disappointing.  I had assumed they would be a good sturdy cotton blend.
     The first time I wore them, they worked great... The second time?... The started getting runs.  Both socks got runs and holes the first week I had them... So disappointing... I don't care how cute they are, that's just unacceptable.
     In CONCLUSION: Cute?  Absolutely.  Quality?  Poor... Worth the price?... absolutely not.  I suggest not purchasing these.  Not unless you have enough money to throw away 5USD a week on socks...

REVIEW: Black Cat Paw Earbuds

Reviewing Black Cat Paw Earbuds from HOT TOPIC
     I got these earbuds from the Hot Topic Website.  They were on sale for less than 5USD when I purchased them.  Their full price is only 6.50USD.
     My package arrived roughly a week to a week and a half after the purchase.  Below you can see the product package of the earbuds.
     The earbuds come with 3 sets of soft tips in 3 sizes (That is counting the set already attached to the earbuds).  One set is large, one is medium and one is small.  I use the mediums.  I gave away the spares because they I can't use them since they are different sizes.  They are comfortable and all in the colour black.  Below you can see the specs for the earbuds.  You can click the image to view it larger.

     These work on any device that has an audio out port for typical headphones.  I am not sure why they felt the need to say it works on "iPad, iPod and iPhone" specifically.
The frequency is 18-20KHz.
Speakers are 10MM.
Cord length is 4 feet.
     Above is a photo of the earbuds being used.  One has a paw print and the other is a cat head. There is no Left or Right marks on the earbuds.
     The sound and connection are typical for earbuds.  There is no crackling or fading.  The earbuds stay stationary fairly well, and the wire is of an adequate length.
     In CONCLUSION: I am satisfied with the purchase.  The earbuds are cute.  The price was low but the quality was decent.  This was a good buy.

Look of the Day

June 04th 2015
     I went to class today.  The last day of my first week of school.  It was warm so I dressed cooler than usual...  Though to be honest, it felt a little embarrassing.  I don't like showing too much skin in public.  I never wear sleeveless tops without cardigans, but I did today.  I also wore my new socks, which I will be reviewing later.
     The cat eared hat is from Claire*s.  The extensions are from eBay, as is the top (It was originally a dress that I altered).  The shoes were from Kmart.  The cat socks are from Hot Topic.  The skirt was purchased from Mystere Wonderland (Though it was purchased more than a decade ago.  I doubt they still sell it).
     I am considering blurring/covering my face in all future photos for this blog.  It will be easier to focus on the clothing that way.  It will also keep me from worrying about what my face looks like when I take photos of clothes for my blog.  Do you think this is a good idea?  I have an example below of how this might look.
