forever 21 shopping haul 7

Got a few things right after my previous haul and I just realized that all these consist of florals and lace! 


Cropped Lace Cami $11.80
This is much pinker in person and I don't really fancy that. It is still cute and kinda reminds me of iwearsin tops so I guess I will still wear it. I received a defective piece though but it is nothing major. They just sewed one of the straps wrongly so it is twisted. 

I like the halter cut of this and the nice pink colour that it came in. It is sorta cropped. I was expecting it to be much longer but I'm glad it isn't. This can totally match the white rose skirt I got below. 

Free Spirit Flounced Crop Top $8.80
I got this because it reminded me of iwearsin's swing tops and I was also quite surprised that these were still around in smalls and all. They are so cute! It is such a steal if you want a basic floral top. 

Floral Lace Crop Top $6.80
I'm not so sure why I got this now. It is cute with the lace trims and all but there's also nothing to gush over. Oops. 

Unfocused Rose Print Skirt $8.80
I am loving the prints of this skirt and the material! Though they describe it as 'unfocused', the prints are not blur in my opinion. They look kinda normal but the roses are so pretty! I'd pair them with white lace tops or pink tops. 

Crochet Trimmed Floral Shorts $14.80
Fell in love with the lace trims at first sight! They are cute to wear too. It has an elastic back but they sit nice and high waisted on me, which is great. 
Floral Scuba Knit Skirt $12.80
Loving the rose prints here as well. They are a little bigger than the white ones above and they sit a tad loosely above my waist. It's kinda sad because I really like these a lot. 
Floral Bow Hair Elastic $1.80
I used to wear a hair bow elastic to school everyday because we had to tie our hair. I think this is a cute addition to my collection and I can use it for work now as well since I have to tie up my hair again. The prints are adorable. 

That's all for this haul but I have another haul post coming right up!

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…
