DENIM FOR FALL








Is it just me or the temperature has really cooled down a little bit in the past few days? I guess it's because of the rain but I just cannot stop thinking about fall.

"Tans fade, highlights go dark and we all get sick of sand in our shoes. But the end of summer is the beginning of a new season."

The approaching of the new school year somehow reminds me of this quote from Gossip Girl. Maybe summer is only beautiful because it slips through our fingers so easily and so quietly. We want to catch it and hold it but we can't. All we can do is to savour the moment and perhaps, enjoy it a little bit longer. Sadly, I have loads of summer assignments to deal with but I'll try to make the best of the last week of summer. (at least for me)  How about you? How's your summer going? xx

SUMMER SPECIAL #3 : STUDIO GHIBLI LAYOUT DESIGNS





(My long-lost friends, Lavinia and Stacey, and I.)



(Cute stickers that visiters draw.)


(Me on the tummy of Totoro. hehe)


(I thought this poster was really funny and cute.)


(Chihiro and no-face from Spirited Away.)

I visited the Ghibli Studio layout designs exhibition in the Hong Kong Heritage Museum with my friends about two weeks ago and here are some photos we took. Too bad that photos are not allowed in the exhibition but there were plenty of photo-spots for us fans. It was amazing to see the original drafts of some of  my childhood favorites like Totoro, Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle. Totally fascinated by the productions of Studio Ghibli, I also saw the effort they put into each animation. From sketching, coloring to actual filming, it's a very long process and they had been providing us with fabulous entertainment since their first film, Castle in the Sky, in 1986. It's a pity that Studio Ghibli has announced that it was temporarily halting production following the retirement of  Hayao Miyazaki.

The exhibition will last until 31st August. Don't miss the chance and definitely go check it out if you love their films!

STAR FERRY





(I know it's so random and weird but I somehow like this photo a lot.)



(My wing eyeliner kinda failed that day.)




(Me being out of focus again. lol)



Hey lovelies! Today, I am bringing you the second part of my last post (kinda) as I travelled to Tsim Sha Tsui for cupcakes again by star ferry after the exhibition. It was such a fun experience for me as I seldom take the ferry.  Too bad that summer break is kind of over for me as there are tons of supplementary classes in August  or I will go out more often for delicious food and nice spots for shooting. Sorry for rambling about school everytime I write a blog post but as we all know, that can be very annoying and overwhelming sometimes.

Back to the casual outfit that I wore, I spiced it up with some white chunky heels that I adore and recently got from Topshop. I love how the t-shirt has a pop of blue as it somehow matched the weather that day and made the outfit more summer-appropriate with a little bit of color. I hope you enjoy this post as much as I do. xx

SUMMER SPECIAL #2 : ACGHK



As the most popular summer carnival in Hong Kong, ACGHK is packed with the best selection of animation, comics, games, toys, limited edition collectibles and a variety of hit-hot performance and  activities to keep spirit high.



(The lighting of the photo is too bad so I turned it into b&w.)




(Sakura Momoko a.k.a my childhood memories.)


(Doraemon!!)




(Actually Iron Patriot is my favorite because of the color combo. lol)




(Some cosplayers I captured that day.)

I guess this post is quite unexpected for you guys because I am not particularly into animation and games but I recently accompanied my brother to the ACGHK, an animation and comics expo held every summer in the HKCEC. My brother and I didn't find this year's fair very interesting as the portion of  animation had been reduced. However, we did have some fun in the event. Above are some photos that I took and I hope you enjoy. :)   xx

PRINTS & COLORS








Summer break has been great so far as  I finally have time to catch up on some reading, be that blogs, magazines or an actual book. Flowy shorts are my go-to bottoms right now because of its high ability to combat the subtropical heat. Really wish I could go on a vacation to refresh my soul right now but sadly I can't. The worst thing is that my schedule is packed with overloading supplementary classes in August which means practically, I have to go back to school in August. Anyway, I will probably take a few self-assigned day-offs then. (DON'T TELL THE TEACHERS!)  xx

p.s. the backpack is my newest obsession too!
