make a wish

I'm so drained today! but i enjoy blogging- it's like an outlet for moi, and i guess it allows you to look over your day. I need a break and i need sleep. I stayed up till after 4am last night doing my essay and then this morning a parcel came and the item was faulty so that made my day start on a shitty note. The bestfriend then picked me up to drive me to uni (alll the wayyyy in lilydaleee) and we got directed by the GPS to the west gate freeway (thanks GPS, not) instead of the normal way we normally go cos we made a wrong turn at the start and confused it. It took us around 2 and a half hours (with detours for petrol and maccas but stilll) as the west gate was jammed in traffic at arnd 12pm cos some doosh crashed his car and the cops took up a whole lane.



I really don't like Lilydale..prolly cos their train line comes every 40 mins and it's 2.5 hrs away by public transport for me but still, we did witness a very pretty part of the neighborhood;

I also fell down the steps outside when i went out to try and put out the bins before, Let me tell you, when i'm tired- my mind is like dead. So hello big graze featuring bruise on my right knee.
I think i will have time tomorrow to have a bit of a sleep in and then clean my room- I have so much make up and clothes i NEED to sell- i have no space to move around- i am a horrible hoarder atm.
And i will do an eyeshadow look! :) i miss eyeshadow. haha ♥
Can't f*ck around too much though as i have exams approaching very soon and a class exam/test this friday, major sigh.

All in all, for a monday, not too bad :)

bestfriends, scary flicks + bows. ♥


I'm currently quite stressed out cos i have a 2000 word essay that is worth 40% of my overall grade to start writing, that's right- start. it's due tomorrow! and i hate the topic.
it's on gene engineering and i have to talk about ethical, social and bla bla implications of either the Monsanto vs Schmeiser or human genome project. sigh
i think i'll be talking about monsato vs s. but i will see. (i guess i don't have much time to decide though do i?!)
i had quite a good weekend. drove to the apple service center to drop off my macbook for repair and then did a bit of shopping with the bestfriend who was awesome enough to drive me to the repair centre. she's mega super cool :)
went exploring along puckle street, then drove the lil bro to vietnamese language school (to his dismay as he hates it but it will benefit him in VCE where he will no doubt beat my enter score cos he's a smartie)
I got a bruise on my hip bone cos i walked into the bestie's car door. :( now it has turned purple. not great. not great at all.
We visited llew (who's awesome as always) and then went to the dvd store to get a scary flick and a comedy/non scary. we chose julie & julia (boring, failed expectations) and the devil's chair (fucked up, oh so fucked up). The night in was good and we got to catch up and dnm.

i'm also after the single sportsgirl eyeshadows but my local has sold out of all the colors so if anyone can CP me some from their sportsgirl, please do, i will appreciate it a lot :) x



i picked up this cute bow beanie in both black and grey. the bow on the grey one is a bit crooked and i'm a perfectionist so i'm contemplating exchanging it. but that is my perfectionist side for you. But it sets it apart a bit from the black one so maybe that's a good thing? :)

In a bid to be a good student (in a last minute situation) i'm off to start on my essay now! hope everyone had a nice weekend :)

♥ bonjour


so today i got up the will power to go shopping, no not really but i had to get an external hard drive to back up everything on my laptop before i send it away to get fixed. ah yes...update; i accidently poured some liquid onto my laptop and i think a bit got in the keys or so cos the keyboard has stopped working. it's very depressing. my poor macbook ♥ i hope it survives.
so i did manage to pick up some cheap bargains- the most i spent on a single item today was $17. (not including the hard drive which of course cost me, cry*)

here is what i got;
oh hello priceline sell. 50% off bourjois & buy one get one free revlon. mmhmm. ♥

revlon colorburst lippie in soft nude

revlon colorburst lippie in peach
(haha i was excited about this one so i tried it out right after i got it, sorry for the mess! =p)


bourjois blushes in 74 & 48.
so excited about these, they look so pretty! theyre both matteish too which i like and a reason why i chose them. most of bourjois blushers are like shimmer overload so these were a treasured find.


diva $5 sale finds. :)


i love my dresses :)
(although i am looking for a nice pair of fancy simple nicely cut trouser pants)

and i also picked up 2x essentials (mascara etc) but i didnt take pics of them cos you know, boring.

i also went out for dinner with my mama last night. we went to quite a nice place although kinda exxy for what it was.


and sammy has been staying warm;

nostalgia



Do you ever have those moments where you just stop and think about how different things would be if you had done something else? A bit of a 'What If' moment, where you consider how everything is now- and how everything could be if...
I'm just feeling so stressed out about life right now. My head feels a bit like a blur. I'm not happy with the way things are but i'm not sure what to do about it. My feelings and thoughts are all coming at me at once.
I miss summer, I miss my bestfriend and the way things used to be when we didn't have responsibilities, I miss working all the time and having a constant stable cash flow, I miss having everything close and near, I miss laughing out loud, I miss taking chances, I miss not over-thinking, I miss being able to close my eyes at night with a clear mind, I miss knowing that tomorrow would be better than today.
I hate the little things in life- paying for petrol, worrying about siblings, liking a boy and not understanding why on earth him, feeling like shit for 'no reason', the high price tags on things you want, the higher price tags on things you need (hello education),
I like the way I think and the way i am but sometimes- I feel like there are things i would give up all the pretty clothes and make up for. I really would.
Not saying i don't like my life the way it is now, i do..I just wonder. And when priority calls- I know the things that would make me happy...I just don't know how to get them?
What if i try and don't succeed, i want these things so much that i don't think i would handle the feeling of failing or rejection. Not even that- i make excuses all the time- maybe i'm just scared- of like everything that matters. ♥
Why can't I just stop thinking and live?

smile lovely


hello lovelies ♥
long time no update :(
life has just been super stressful for me with assessments due every few days and exams coming up in a few weeks. I just have not been in the mood to dress up or apply eyeshadow. However i feel like im becoming a bit depressed (easy to fall into cos of the cold weather) and like really lethargic. So gotta get motivated babyyy!

Aside from major gossip girl marathons with hot choc, i can't say i've been up to much. The travel to lilydale whenever i have uni is a real drainer, words can't describe how much i hate it. I'm at prahran next semester @ swinburne's design campus so i may become arsty fartsy (as i quoted to krissy on an earlier discussion on facebook) I'm not so happy with having to fork out $150 (with student discount) for adobe photoshop though, as i don't have it and i need it for my design units next semester. blah

I went highpoint for a bit today (VIP night thing- did not buy much. had to go down to the bank to complain about something and then i bought a dress, a ring, a pair of earrings, some small essentails then left- imma good girl *stares at huge pile of unworn clothes in room and feels guilty*) then i met up with Carlos late in the afternoon cos he finished uni early. We discovered the funky backgrounds in photobooth;
haha! :)

what i wore;
(i really need to get a big tripod or a minion who will come around taking photos of me outside where there's nice backgrounds and stuff :p)
jacket: vintage
top: random brand
jeans: random brand
necklace & ring: diva

boots: vintage

--------
On the weekend i went to the heat cosmetics sale with krissy, brands such as covergirl, red earth, bourjois, maxfactor etc discounted mega-ly. overspent a bit but ah well it was my first time going so boo.



moi stash on my bed before sorting and finding a place in my collection;

and here's me wearing one of the lip products i picked up from the sale;
~wearing bourjois docteur glamour lippie in lilas ausculte ♥

mmm so yes, i am beginning to get motivated back into blogging. i think i will do a swatch post of all the nyx lippies i got in my last mega US haul cos ive hardly used any of them at all. im sure there's some great colors there too.
and contest give away coming up soon! keep an eye out- sleek eyeshadow palette? yess! covergirl lash blast? yesss...frreee? yes! and more? yes!

hello change! ♥




yes i dyed my hair black! :) it's my natural color but i havent had it much for the last 6-7 years. I dyed it black last year but HATED it cos i used cheapie dye (garnier?) and the black was like an eww tone. This time i used professional hair dye and my mum whose a hair dresser mixed it and did it so turned out as i wanted :) i'm just going to let my hair grow out and all now and probably won't dye it for a long time.

diamond in a rutt

hello all! sorry for the break in blogging. i have been busy with uni assessments and life in general. i had a mishap with public transport on friday, resulting in me coming 30 mins late to a tutorial in which i had to do an oral presentation, argh! good news is i think it went quite well but i know my tutor's a hard marker so i'm scared to expect anything.

I've had a few outfits + FOTDs that i've wanted to post but i have been sick and that means i've slept heaps and only waked up like an hr before i've had to go somewhere to get ready. I've always had to leave right away so no time to whip out the camera =p

However today which is sunday (though this post is on monday as it's after midnight) I spent with the family at home and then went to church and groceries shopping at night.
so i got to do a bit of clicking with the camera :) nothing exciting though- eyeshadow in church automatically makes you feel like a drag queen.

~a simple clean look, wearing Chanel's rouge allure laque in santal on lips.

Dress: Chloé - Sandals: Wittner

I regretted spending so much on this chloe dress which i won off ebay about 2 years ago but i discovered its good quality means it's lined and quite warm in winter so love it! ♥

Those who know me well will have noted my obsession with huge statement cocktail rings. Here i am rocking one from ASOS which compliments my frock! :)


Saturday night i went to a good high school friend's house to celebrate her 18th birthday- was really fun to catch up with her as i hadn't seen her for AGES. and we went to laser tag and i discovered that i will laser shoot lil kids to win haha :D it was really fun as our team was all older people and the other two teams were literally lil kids like 5-12 year olds. and they were crazy, oh boy they were! they were out to laser kill me.
oh and i also learnt how to play pool! our team won too soo yay yes yay! and i got 3 balls in :D admittedly, my first 'goal' involved the white ball flying off the table and nearly killing someone but hey it was my first time okay!




The birthday girl is really sweet and her family is super nice.
Some or well 'one' of her guests was someone i don't really like and during the movie we watched late at night she kept like bitching about everyone and i felt like turning around and suffocating her with a pillow but the birthday girl was also talking so i resisted. I just hate how high school is over but some people haven't grown up.

I've had a good think about my life lately and i've decided to put a strong ban on my spending on clothes & make up because;

1. I need money for going out now that i'm 18. Fun ain't cheap
2. I have too many clothes- many i haven't even worn
3. I have too many lipsticks and eyeshadows- many i haven't worn
4. I need money for food. i like nice food. Food ain't cheap

and also i've decided..*drum roll* i'm gonna learn how to sew! my mum is a master at it (hah asian parents) so she will be my mentor and i think it'll be great. I love vintage shopping so now if i find something that isn't right but has great potential, i can make something amazing out of it. ♥

Also, my exams are coming up in June so time to study and revise so i don't have a panic attack when it comes around.

also uploaded a video on my latest ASOS haul;


plus- a bit of a delay but i was tagged by the lovely Skye and given the beautiful blogger award a week or so ago.


As part of this i must share 7 facts about myself :)

1. I get sick every winter
2. I am obsessed with ice-cream and mocha. yum
3. I lose weight and gain weight really easily
4. I am a creature of habit
5. I have too many eyeshadows and lipsticks in my make up collection. way too many. (but ♥ it!)
6. I love my puppy so much :) he gets really annoying sometimes cos he's super hypo but i don't think i could live without him
hello sammy!

7. I dream of having a walk in wardrobe/whole room dedicated as a wardrobe one day. Seriously. I'm over my floordrobe and attempting to squish items in my wardrobe & closet.

I tag everyone who hasn't been tagged and would like to do it :)

off to begin another week darlings! first by sleeping :) 3am? i think my sleep time is way overdue.
