My package from lightinthebox.com arrived on the same day as my items from hopshopgo! I waited a long time for this one. No idea why though. I was beginning to wonder if my sponsor had given up on me before starting D:

The mesh crop top (above) is super soft, thin and light. I'm quite amazed at the quality and workmanship of this. It is truly as amazing as it looks. Love the fit of it as well. The smallest size is a M but it fits me perfectly fine. I'm so glad it does because I love it so much. The mesh parts are thin enough not to feel to hot in it. Just be sure not to hook on to anything that could destroy the mesh portions because it feels so delicate.





I hadn't expected the floral culottes to be so so pretty! They come with a braided belt as well. It is made of chiffon with a stretchable back, so it is pretty free sized but it does not stretch a lot. Make sure to check the measurements on the website! Anyway, I love the pleats on the culottes and it is pretty hard to make creases on this sort of material so say hello to perfect looking skirts all day! They are so perfect, I'm looking at the other culottes the website offers! Gonna get them all if I can.



I love the cross back crop top too because all these fancy cut out backs are the rage this season! I don't own any tops with fancy backs so this would have been a perfect addition if it fit me better. It is very soft and stretchy but it is just too big for me. It's still wearable but it just looks loose. Even the sleeves are loose. Such a bummer. I would have loved wearing this otherwise. Will replace with my own picture soon. 




I've always adored this cape sleeved lace blouse that I've seen on many other bloggers so I had to get one for myself too. I was quite shocked when it arrived because when laid out, this lace top is in a rectangular shape, just like a scarf, but with a neck hole. If you look under, you'd see two sections sewn for the arms. It drapes on nicely though and there are lots of waves for the sleeves. I feel like a total princess wearing it and it's quite breezy too because it's crochet. Great for the festival season and coachella too! Tuck it into a skirt or shorts to complete the look! 



I chose this knitted sweater because of the nice cut out design and I don't really have white/cream sweaters, so this was a great addition. It's oversized and loose but not thick, so it's suitable for cali weathers and aircon for singapore. It actually doesn't keep you very warm because of all the cut-outs in the sweater, so you might want to wear something underneath. Otherwise, it's great for layering and super comfy and oversized.

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. …

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…

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…
