vday: do not know what to wear? wear a romper!


Valentine's day is around the corner and if you still have no idea what to wear, here is another idea for you! These outfits are not limited to vday though. It's just fun to blog about them for it since it is something most people celebrate. 

Do not know what to wear yet? Wear a romper! I think it is the best go-to item if you have no idea what to wear for any day. Rompers are quite like dresses, just maybe not as dressy? It's got an element of casual to them since they've got shorts. The only downside to rompers or playsuits is that you pretty much have to strip when you go to the bathroom. 

My first ever romper is the one above. I bought it at Scape from one of the regular stalls for $10. I was skeptical at first because I had never worn rompers and I couldn't try it on, plus the print is so vintage and jap-style so I didn't know if it would suit me. Luckily I got it anyway, because I went home and tried it out and fell in love with it. I haven't found an occasion to wear it out yet though :/ An idea could be for a picnic though! Or any date since this is so cute. Red bag (forever 21) and mustard shoes to match the floral prints! 


I got this turquoise hearts-all-over romper recently from an online reseller. It screams love everywhere because of the hearts and I paired it with a striped cardigan for a more daring look but if you'd like to tone down on the prints, you can go with a plain white cardigan. Accessories and bag are from forever 21. 


Lastly, this dress romper is from the editor's market. There are shorts underneath this one, though quite useless since it is hidden. I could wear my own safety shorts to make my toilet trips easier. Anyway, the cute thing about this playsuit is not only the paisley prints but the tie straps! It's so cute to have little ribbons as straps although they tend to slip off on my unbalanced shoulders. The shoes are also my favourite for walking because they are so comfy and soft. I got them from taiwan though. 

I hope you have been a little inspired from this post to plan your outfit for this Valentine's day or any special date you have in mind. These are also perfect to wear out with friends, to the mall, or anywhere.

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…
