MIDI LOVE








My life got pretty overwhelming while I was gone. I guess it's normal for people to occasionally doubt their existence and passion as there is no escape to people constantly criticizing and judging. Nevertheless, I still enjoy what I am doing and this is what really matters.

The midi skirt has been my favorite since the day I got it and finally, I got the chance to shoot myself in it despite my hectic schedule. Thanks to my "professional photographer". :P

EXAGGERATION








Print on print is a rare combo from me but I guess there's a first time for everything. I have been obsessing with flowy shorts all summer but I guess it's almost time to pull out the midi skirt and jeans instead. Trying to have fun in the mist of the hectic school life is definitely not easy but I am surely getting used to it. My only wish now is that autumn could come faster so I would be able to work on some cozy outfits.  xx

MY EVERYDAY MAKEUP ROUTINE 2014


I apologise if you were looking forward for an outfit post but I figure I'll share some makeup that I love with you instead even though I'm no expert in this aspect. Anyways, it's be fun for us to exchange some tips and tricks,right?


1. Maybelline Pure BB Mineral BB Watergel: To be honest, I am currently scouting for a new BB cream but don't get me wrong, this one works just fine. Being a waterbase bb cream, it still gives me a bit of coverage and obviously, moisturizes my skin without making it feel oily. Moreover, I like applying bb cream with a damp sponge as it gives a smoother finish. I indeed have nothing to complain but I do want to try something new as this tube has lasted forever. Any bb cream recommendations are appreciated.

2. Za perfect fit concealer: I read about this product in a Japanese magazine when my Revlon one was running low so I decided to give it a try. I have to say, this is by far the best drugstore concealer I have ever tried. Covering the redness and dark circles on my face, my skin looks quite glowing and flawless after using it. Surprisingly, after doing some research online, I found that Za is a subsidiary of Sheiseido and is mostly sold in Asian countries like Singapore, Japan and Hong Kong. Unlike other drugstore concealers that sold in Hong Kong, this Za one actually provides three shades to choose from (others often have two shades only) which never hurt anyone.

3. Rimmel Stay Matte Powder: I guess there's no need to talk much about this powder as every girl with oily skin knows it and uses it. It is quite longlasting as it says on the packaging but still, it cannot eliminate the shine around my nose for long which is fine as I have super-duper oily skin in that particular area. (sigh) It controls the oil on my forehead nicely though.


4. Blush by Daiso Japan in orange: Let's conclude my feeling for this one in a sentence - absolutely loving this bronzy-orange shimmery blush, especially for its price.

5. High Beam by Benefit: To be honest, I use it only when I have more time or I want some extra glow on my face, i.e. weekends that I actually leave the house. I put it on the high points on my cheekbones, cubid bow and my cheeks but not on the bridge of my nose as it doesn't look good there with unknown reason. Wondering if it just bothers me or others find it weird on the nose too.

I use some random eyeliner and brow pencil to tightline and fill in my brows and both of the products are not buzz-worthy so I guess I'll just end my little "review" here. I am sorry for the lack of posts recently as I kind of  lose the motivation to blog due to the craziness of school. I will try to get my life together and strike a balance between studying and blogging so please bear with me. Hope you enjoy and I'll see you all soon. xx

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!
