My package from 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: 

I'm so glad they didn't. I love the items that arrived in the mail! Items featured here are available at lightinthebox. They have been very generous to let me have all these gorgeous beauties: 
Mesh crop top 
Cross back crop top 
Floral culottes 
Cape sleeve lace top 
Knitted sweater

Their discounts are like 30-50% off and sometimes they have additional discount codes of 40-50%. Super affordable to shop. Plus, you get back 1% as reward points to use in future and they ship worldwide via DHL. 

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

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 w

Lime Crime Wet Cherry Lip Gloss Swatches & Review on Asian Skin (NC20)

Lime Crime came out with their new line of sheer lip glosses recently. I've done a swatch and review video on YouTube but I haven't done a write-up with close up swatch pictures for anyone who wants reference. There are 14 shades in total at the moment and they retail for $18. You get 2.96ml of product in each tube, which honestly is quite little. These lip glosses come in a chubby clear acrylic tube with a pink cap. The tube itself is quite big but don't let it fool you, because 2.96ml/0.1oz of product isn't as much as it looks. The applicator is a really big doe foot which is great for full lips but for me, it's just way too big and the applicator tends to pick up too much product for one application. The lip gloss has a delicious cherry candy scent to it which I love though! These go on sheer because they are meant to be sheer lip glosses. They give a nice tinted look but some colors tend to look streaky up close because of this. They do sink into your l
