december insta faves

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Here are some of my insta faves for the month of December. I normally edit the lighting of my photos on Photoshop by adjusting the levels and colour balance, followed by applying filters with Afterlight. My favourite filters to use are Russ and Fade. I hope you are following me on Instagram!

nail art: festive christmas baubles nail art

It is my favourite time of the year because Christmas is around the corner! I love all the sparkly decorations, christmas lights, festive tunes, hot chocolate and gingerbread. So to celebrate the season with some festive cheer, I created some baubles nail art (inspired by nailstorming). I love how sparkly this design is and it definitely makes me happy because it looks just like christmas wrapping paper. I used nail polish from Etude House's Holiday Trio pack. I'm not sure if they still sell it because it was a christmas gift from my aunt last year. Anyhow, it's a relatively simple nail art and you only need four colours - deep red/maroon, metallic glittery gold, green and red glitter, and white.

Paint two-three coats of dark red/maroon as a base colour.Next, paint on some green, red and gold glitter. Mine came together in a bottle but if you don't have that, you could paint separate coats of glitter. I tried not to pile on too much glitter so I only went with one coat …

debshops november picks

Hi all! I'm back today with yet another fall haul, featuring items from debshops! This is a rather massive haul and I also have some pairs of shoes that I got two months back but only shipped in recently. I do urge you to check out debshops right now because they are having massive sales like 50% off tops and bottoms, which is a super great time to get knits and jackets because they are usually the more expensive items. 
So this is pretty much all the new shoes that I got from debs. Which pair are you loving the most? I got the studded combat boots and floral sneakers for like $5/8 each when they were on sale. I also got another pair of sandals for $8 but I didn't include it in the picture because sandals are out of season right now. They are super comfy but the floral sneakers seem kind of cheap. They do not have any back heel support as you can see. But for $5, it was a steal. The studded combat boots do not have fantastic material quality but it was a good price for it too. …
