My, what big ears you have!

Christmas came early this year! :)

My bf decided to drop off my gift ahead of time since we will be apart with our respective families for the holidays. Upon opening and discovering a snow leopard spirit hood, I did a little dance - more for the fact that he also bought the wolf version for himself! :D (The present was curiously unveiled outside and underneath the full moon right before the lunar Eclipse - Arooo!)

So why do I love Spirit Hoods?
  • A portion of the sales go towards protecting certain animals (Product Blue label)
  • Their hoods are so absolutely cuddly, adorable, and warm!
  • Relatively hypoallergenic :P
  • I love the fact that I can rock ears! :D

Eat your heart out Tai-lung! lol. :)

Snow Leopard

Silent » Mindful » Independent

The Snow Leopard has a presence unlike any animal, its spirit is full of beauty and grace. Always attentive and aware in it’s surroundings, people with the snow leopard spirit tend to be empathic and wise. It is a solitary animal that still loves to play!

Hmmm...I like to think of myself as those things but alas, I think I can only qualify for 1.5 of these qualities T_T


My hood with silky white lining

Spirit hood

The hood itself keeps your head nice and toasty - the long flaps double as a scarf and mittens (complete with padded paws!) A tiny little zipper pouch is hidden alongside the lining of the flaps to stash away credit cards & cash on the go! The hood is well constructed and the FAUX fur is super-soft!

Wearing anything with ears may seem a little ridiculous Halloween aside - but I really don't care. I've joined the tribe and am MADLY in love! :)

So, before I opened up your post, I thought you had put up a picture of you and my sweet fuzzy Donkey Boy given the post title! Not DB, but I was not disappointed...I LOVE this little hood, although I would have absolutely nowhere to wear it :)......but I would blend in well out here! Merry Christmas sweet Irene ~ hugs, Liz

PetiteAsianGirl said...

Simply adorable! What a sweet gift from your bf. Definitely seems like something tokyo fashion would lap up. Is it easy to get makeup on the hood though? I'd be so sad to have makeup transfer on a nice furry white hood.

s said...

OMG you are so adorable Irene!!! And it's kinda sexy hehe. That is an awesome present!

Have a very Merry Christmas Irene!!!

Miss*Kimmy said...

What the -?!?!? These are ADORABLE!!! I've never seen them before and want one ASAP!

rae630 said...

ahhh!!! soooo cute! i want one, but i don't think i'd look as cute. LOL. I can't wait to see your sephora HK haul. Ya, I'm SUPER picky about my eyeliners. Its super black, which I love, but I'm so spoiled with my waterproof asian liners that I have a hard time with other liners that aren't AS waterproof. I wanna smell the perfume!!! Merry Christmas!! <3 Rina

O-EM-GEE! Sooo cute!! I've seen these hoods but never knew who made them. You're the sexiest snow leopard I've seen. =D So sweet of your bf!

I got my Sephora HK stuff today but my ancient camera and amateur photog skills made for some pretty lousy I'll try to take some decent ones to share. If not, I'm sure one of the other bloggers will have super awesome pics as well. I've only tried the eyeliner on my hand and I do like the tip. But, I noticed that the cap is on kinda tight. Not sure if that's good or bad.

Oh! White cheddar cheese! I love the sound of that...haha. I'll have to see if I can grab me a bag before they're gone! ;) Oh and I do have pierced ears.

Kate Gene said...

What a great gift! It looks so cozy. I absolutely love the ears and paws!

You remind me so much of xteeener from YT in these pictures! (I think xteeener is super pretty, so that's definitely a compliment! :D)

I have been such a bad blogger friend. I really hope you are doing well!

Happy Holidays!

Shop N' Chomp said...

Aw, you saw Totoro! I haven't seen it yet. *cries* Hope you had a fab holiday!

Sorry to hear about the perfume being a disappointment. Actually having had the brush set a bit longer now, I'm convinced the price tag is only justified if you're a HK fan. =\ The brushes are tiny! Plus the metallic case isn't the best quality. But I don't want to deter you. You should check it out at the store next month to decide for yourself. =)

Pop Champagne said...

omg that is SO CUTE! I want the vanessa hudgens one! I checked out their site, it's $129 bucks for one man that's a lot for a faux fur hood -_-

Does sells the real spirithoods like

L4pinkpetal said...

thank you for letting me know about blacklabelboutique, haha now i can't decide between polar bear, panda, or snow leopard?

xbbkay said...

i have yet to see people wear these around, but i have seen something similar to it being sold! i thought it was so cute, but i'm still a little hesitant to wearing one of these out in public!

i think you rocked it well. CUTEE!!
