floral skirt haul + filtergram

It's only week 2 of my third year in uni/college and I'm already so tired and pissed at school. Well, frustrated at one million and one other things as well. As such, I went on a shopping spree! Spent all my cny money. I am high maintenance. I sold off some of my other clothes as well, like a major sale of $5 clearance kinda thing to fund my shopping spree also, so I don't feel so bad :x

So, I've been craving floral skirts for a very long time. Dark based floral skirts because I only have a white and mint floral skirt at the moment. And this was the result. The second and last one are from cotton on, one's navy and one's black based. The other two were bought from an online reseller and although I'm not totally satisfied with the quality of them because I paid quite a bit for them, the prints are adorable. I love floral prints that are tiny and sparse like the second skirt. I love my new floral skirts and I can't wait to come up with outfits to match them! 

Also, there is this great new photo app called filtergram that everyone should download! There are so many pretty filters and you can even adjust the opacity of the filters. They also handle brightness, contrast, exposure, shadows, highlights, etc pretty well. It is quite my ideal app just that it can't add text. I was actually thinking of creating such an app but I don't have the sufficient skills (read: excuse for being lazy). You'll still need to use another app to add text and overlays though. I did them on photoshop because I was on my computer. 
I also bought this sweater which has a part of maroon 5's she will be loved lyrics on it! Super cool eh. The heart all over prints are also so adorable! Unfortunately, I think it is a tad big on me, so if you are interested in buying, please contact me. There is tissue under the soles of my shoes. I would never 'step' on my clothes. 
This one is for mich! Look! I have kitty tights too! I love them so much. They are so cute and they have tails at the back too! My only peeve is that the nude parts are so thin, it runs too easily. 

Anyhow, what do you prefer? Filters vs natural colours?

Real vs Fake Adidas Superstar/Stan Smith

I've wanted to do this post for a long time, ever since I started on my crazy collection of Adidas Superstars. I mean, I think I make quite a credible source because at one point, I owned 14 pairs of Superstars and Stan Smiths. I will be migrating my Superstar collection post over to this blog over the coming days so that you can read up on where I got them.



I'm not sure if these shoes are still as popular and wanted now because I am sort of out of the loop but if you are looking to get yourself a pair of Superstars or Stan Smiths, these are a few pointers to look out for in identifying if what you are buying is real or fake. Take note that these features are mostly applicable to recent releases only. Old models and Superstar 80s are slightly different. Then again, old models are not sold in stores anymore so if you find brand new pairs elsewhere, you should be cautious. 

I owned a a few pairs of fake Superstars before I purchased my first original pair from the Adidas website. …

diy: hair bows

From the cloth I bought recently at Daiso, and with the major diy mood I was in, I decided to make a bunch of hair bows to wear when school reopens. My tutorial has been inspired and sourced through many inspirations on pinterest.  Start off with a rectangular or square piece of fabric. Squares will result in bows like the blue floral one above while rectangles will be like this bow in the tutorial. Mine measured about 24cm by 12cm. For my blue floral one, i used a 15cm by 15 cm square. Fold your fabric in half, with the insides facing out and straight stitch as highlighted. Leave a gap at the edge because you will be inverting the fabric after you're done sewing. This gap should also be of reasonable size, not to small or you will have trouble inverting the cloth. Once you are done, invert the fabric and  straighten it out. You can sew up the gap at this point if it bothers you. Using a pin or a needle, make some pleats with the fabric and pin through to get the bow shape. Once yo…

ALL ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Swatches on Asian Skin + Review

Recently, I dug into my collection of ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks and swatched all the available shades on their website. I'm missing 5 from the website and over here, I have 31. The rest have been swatched in other collection videos/posts.

Midi (Pale Dusty Pink) Against my skin tone, this is like a pastel pink. The color remains quite close to that of the tube but the formula is slightly thick and it does settle in my lip lines and feel dry. Not exactly a color I would pull off often but I can see it working with a colorful eye look or a smokey eye.

Bianca (Soft Mauve) Love this shade and it remains quite true to the tube but it is so drying and crumbly on the lips. It accentuates my lip lines and it cracks when I smile. One of the worse formulas in this bunch, especially considering that it is a nude and most companies do not mess these sort of colors.

Clueless (Dusty Mauve) This is a really cute shade. It pulls off pinker on me than in the tube and although ColourPop d…
