forever21 shopping haul 4

I finally received my forever 21 gift card prize from the 30th anniversary instagram challenge. I paid 24 bucks to ship it back to singapore though. The gift cards were split into 500, 500 and 200 dollars each and it also came with a cute little necklace. No idea why forever 21 likes to use huge ass boxes like this though. 

So the moment I got them, I immediately used up the 200 dollar gift card. I got 19 items for $199.98 altogether (after 10% discount). 

This is a cute tank top with an interesting back. It's got a little slit and overlap at the back, hence the 'tulip'. The graphic is nice too. 

As usual, I was hesitant about these shorts in case they were too big for me. I got them in XS and they are still a bit big. It rests slightly below my belly button but they can be worn higher if the waist band was smaller. Not a big fan of the cutting and shape of these shorts. 

I didn't know these were from the men's section till I got them. They totally look like raybans but they are less than $4! Since they are wayfarers, they are unisex and still the same size as the wayfarers from the women's section. Got these because basic is always good. 

No real reason as to why I got this. I don't even use cosmetics or carry along any. So far, what I've done with them is store my sunglasses in them because this bag is quite big. It feels cheaply made and printed though and definitely looks nicer in pictures. 

I've waited a long time for these sunglasses and although the lenses are not in my desired colour, I'm still very happy I finally got them. I've been wanting heart shaped sunglasses for the longest time. I know UO has them for 16 bucks but since I shop so much at f21, I figured I might as well buy from them. I am super happy with them. I wanted to collect all the heart shaped sunnies they had but I always missed them. These were super cute and I'm glad they look good on me as well. 

These tank tops are very basic but super pretty! I wanted them in white but they ran out of smalls by the time I got my gift card. They still have many other colours though! I got it in taupe and beige since they didn't have any more whites. The length is also perfect since it is not too cropped and not too long and the material of the tank tops are really soft and comfy as well. They'd go great with soft casual shorts! 

These shorts are super cute because of the tulip cutting! I bought them because they curve upwards at the thighs to show more sexy legs. 

I've always wanted this dress but 22.80 for it is just too expensive. Plus the material is so light and sheer! Even their backless dresses go for 15.80 only. I don't know why this one is priced so high. The prints are really cute though and I do love the cut and look of it so I took this chance to get this dress! I'd pair it with the peek-a-boo bralette like the model wore and wear some safety shorts underneath as well since the dress is sheer. 

This skirt had many good reviews and I can't believe I didn't see this skirt earlier while browsing the store so many times. It is quite an old design. The measurements also looked like they would fit me unlike their newer items. The material is silky and smooth, quite like a swim suit's material but I don't mind. I actually quite like it. I got it in white but the black one looks pretty as well. I might get that too. 

I took my chances with these shorts and I love them! They are a tiny bit big but they still fit me very well. The colour is pretty though and it's my first acid washed shorts. It came wrapped in a bundle (no idea why) and I was so happy when I saw that the shorts were small in size and not huge like the previous denim shorts that I got. These have a button fly which can be a hassle but I'm not complaining since I found a pair of cute denim cutoffs from f21. For the price, I think it is a must-buy!

Got this one because of the good reviews. I'm not a big fan of the prints but there aren't any nicer kimonos online at the moment. 

Because I am loving wayfarers. Impulse buy?

This skirt is a bit big for me, unfortunately. The material feels very thin and flimsy as well. It has a stretchable waist at the back but I can't get it up high waist as the sizing runs big. The prints also don't seem to look as pretty than in the picture. 

Can you believe this jacket is only 15 dollars?? The reviews were all so positive as well! I'm so glad that I looked through the jackets section for this! It's so worth it! I'm thinking they restocked this in Small only because that is the only size available. 

Yeah, I probably have a million graphic tees with 'love' in them or are about 'love'. So this is one more to the collection. 

Like how the model wore it in the first photo, this is cute for layering over a low cut tank top or slip dress! It would also be pretty for a translucent top like in my previous haul. This is not padded at all. 

I've been looking for a similar cardigan as this one after seeing one at debshops' sales section. Some how, I never could bring myself to check out my cart at debshops. So, I'm glad I found this and although it is quite pricey, I think it is cute and seriously comfy. It's got batwing sleeves and they are full length so I guess that's why it looks like a shawl. Also, it is quite light so it is a dream to wear.

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…
