wetseal shopping haul 5

I spent about $60 on this haul which is reasonably cheap for everything in my opinion. All the tops were half off and the jackets and accessories were an additional 60% off at clearance which was a really good deal. 
This twill anorak jacket was only $10 after discount. Plus it is really good and well made. It is currently my favourite utility jacket in my closet. I am quite sure they added this into their clearance one fine day because I have never seen it prior to the day I shopped. I thank my lucky stars for finding this perfect jacket. I like the zip + button closure and how structured and fitting it is. The waist is not adjustable but that is fine. 
The other new thing here is the beanie that is less than $5. It actually has a golden plated batman logo on it but that really feels very cheaply made and attached on. I got it because I liked batman and I didn't mind trying out beanies for the price of 5 bucks. 
This has got to be the coolest boho top that I have right now. The heart astrology print is so pretty and super cool. The braided back straps also add to the vibe. This was $17.90 but I got it half off so it was about $9. I'd pair it with black shorts and a fringed bag or cardi for those boho vibes. 
This outfit features a bow back crop top which I actually got in black and white because it was only like $5 after discount. They had it in maroon as well. I think it is a very pretty twist to the basic crop top. I like the drop back and U-front. Super flattering. 
Over here, there is this pretty detailed crochet tank top that I got for $7.50 after discount. I paired it with tribal shorts but they'd go well with florals as well. The floral crown is also new and I got it for $2.40 which is pretty alright. It adds a perfect pop of colour to any outfit. 
I also got this linen hooded anorak jacket again but in Taupe this time and it was only like less than $10 this time because it moved to the clearance section. My piece wasn't very well done though because there were lots of extra threads sticking out every where. I really like this jacket though because it is so soft and relatively light, so I'm not complaining for the price I got it for.
This boho fringe bag has been in the clearance for quite some time and I got it at around $8 after discount. It's not bad, quite big and roomy but I do wish the straps were longer because I don't really dig short hand bags. I do suppose it will look nicer and more shaped after it has been stuffed with things. 
Lastly, I got these metallic temporary tattoos! They are out of stock already and I can see why because for $7, you get quite a lot of flash tattoos from this. I haven't tried it out yet but I know f21 was selling flash tattoos awhile ago and they were super expensive. Like $20+ for a couple of sheets. The designs here are pretty enough and perfect for a beach day. I really like the dreamcatcher one so I need to use that wisely. The long ones can be used as bracelets/anklets/necklaces so they are really versatile.

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…
