floral skirt haul + filtergram

It's only week 2 of my third year in uni/college and I'm already so tired and pissed at school. Well, frustrated at one million and one other things as well. As such, I went on a shopping spree! Spent all my cny money. I am high maintenance. I sold off some of my other clothes as well, like a major sale of $5 clearance kinda thing to fund my shopping spree also, so I don't feel so bad :x

So, I've been craving floral skirts for a very long time. Dark based floral skirts because I only have a white and mint floral skirt at the moment. And this was the result. The second and last one are from cotton on, one's navy and one's black based. The other two were bought from an online reseller and although I'm not totally satisfied with the quality of them because I paid quite a bit for them, the prints are adorable. I love floral prints that are tiny and sparse like the second skirt. I love my new floral skirts and I can't wait to come up with outfits to match them! 

Also, there is this great new photo app called filtergram that everyone should download! There are so many pretty filters and you can even adjust the opacity of the filters. They also handle brightness, contrast, exposure, shadows, highlights, etc pretty well. It is quite my ideal app just that it can't add text. I was actually thinking of creating such an app but I don't have the sufficient skills (read: excuse for being lazy). You'll still need to use another app to add text and overlays though. I did them on photoshop because I was on my computer. 
I also bought this sweater which has a part of maroon 5's she will be loved lyrics on it! Super cool eh. The heart all over prints are also so adorable! Unfortunately, I think it is a tad big on me, so if you are interested in buying, please contact me. There is tissue under the soles of my shoes. I would never 'step' on my clothes. 
This one is for mich! Look! I have kitty tights too! I love them so much. They are so cute and they have tails at the back too! My only peeve is that the nude parts are so thin, it runs too easily. 

Anyhow, what do you prefer? Filters vs natural colours?

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…

Arctic Fox Hair Dye Review on Dark Unbleached Hair

I've been meaning to try Arctic Fox's hair dyes for a couple of years but never got around to it because I feared it wouldn't show up on dark hair. It's been coming up more and more on Instagram again so I did some research and apparently Purple Rain, Aquamarine and Poseidon do show up on dark hair. So that's what I purchased! These retail for $7.99 (4 fl oz) or $13.99 (8 fl oz) on the Arctic Fox website but I got mine off Amazon.  Arctic Fox hair dyes are vegan and cruelty free. They also do not contain harsh chemicals like peroxides, ammonia and PPD. These are semi-permanent and they contain conditioning agents which means you can use these dyes as often as you want to without damaging your hair. Semi-permanent hair dyes only coat your hair so it will fade with each wash. The bottle claims that it can last up to 40 washes. These smell like grape candy so it is such a treat to use them. The instructions to use this is pretty simple. 1. Shampoo and wash hair witho…
