EYE NAIL TUTORIAL INSPIRED BY ANIMALIST

what you need: top/base coat, white, black and blue nail polish, nail pen applicator (or black nail art pen)

Hi everyone!
this was requested a lot, so i decided to do a tutorial on it. this was my first time attempting it (on both hands anyway) so forgive the crappy job on the eyelashes especially. Also, i do not take credit for this nail design in anyway, and it was inspired by Vanessa of Animalist.
hope you guys try it out! show me if you do ( :

wearing: cardigan courtesy of American Apparel (here), tank top- "torn" by Ronny Kobo, vintage belt, pants from MUJI, loafers from cotton on, bag from my mom, bow hairtie worn as ring.
thank you Emma, for the photos! (thug$ for lyfe<3)


It's gotten a little warmer today after the super cold (10 degrees...haha) of the past few days, so i decided to share a less winter-y outfit, since i didn't feel like wearing a huge coat over everything. Since we shot the photos on the street, it was super awkward when people kept walking and driving past, so i kinda have all of the same expressions in the photos (except the last one...haha)

anyhoo, i am addicted to this cardigan. It's so unique and comfy, though it does snag onto zippers and things, i can pair it with everything, including these pants from Muji. I've never bought any clothing from there before, but after seeing the cut and material of these pants, i decided i had to have them (they were on sale as well). After purchasing them, i found that the woman at the cashier forgot to take the safety tag off, and my dad had to wrestle with the pliers to get the thing off (it's surprisingly difficult) and though i have a tiny hole in the leg of the pants (which i will fix later), i'm in love with the fit and cut of them. I've also noticed I rarely wear pants on this blog, so i guess this is something different from the usual collar+skirt/shorts+tights combo! i really like the textures of the corduroy with the knits as well, and i'm going to try buying some cord the next time i go fabric shopping.

have a great weekend everyone! I will be posting the Answers video on Sunday!

wearing: cargo jacket- courtesy of sugarlips apparel (here), american apparel shirt (worn inside), ASOS shorts, vintage belt, vintage briefcase, sweater from shanghai, agnes. b shoes. 

It is so so so cold today. but anyways, i've realized i haven't shown much outerwear in my outfit posts this winter, so i decided to introduce this lovely cargo jacket, courtesy of SugarLips apparel. It's thin, for keeps me warm and looks awesome layered on top of scarves and sweaters. I'm pretty behind on the army parka/jacket trend, but i like it nonetheless. thanks sugarlips! also, what do you guys think of the nails? i'm thinking of doing a simple tutorial but i'm not sure if you guys like them or not since my dad thinks they're weird and i'm pretty sure i scared some of my younger relatives yesterday. (the nails were inspired by Vanessa of Animalist and Raych of That's Chic)

anyhoo, tonight i'm spending some time with family and friends to eat some CNY food and do some friendly gambling (even though i suck at that stuff).

恭喜發財! ♥

KARLIE KLOSS FOR FREE PEOPLE

As well as Frida, Karlie is one of my favorites. Isn't she amazing? Perfect inspiration for warmer weather. I also love the messy fishtail braids, and these photos make me miss New York so much.

p.s. since it's the holidays, i'm blogging more, and i love it!

second and last photo taken by my papa

Since it's about to get around to 10 degrees soon (which for us HKers, is pretty cold), i decided to whip out some photos taken during the summer of 2011. it's funny how we crave summer in the winter, and crave winter during the summer.

The Naked and Famous- Girls like You

Hi Everyone!
Another nice thing from American Apparel. The oversized fit makes it perfect for tucking into skirts, shorts and jeans. and you guys know i've been obsessed with this bag, these shoes, tights, skirt, etc.
I know that my outfits have been getting a bit repetitive lately...maybe its because i'm obsessed with all the same things. I'll try to change it up from now on; tell me what you guys think!

It's almost CNY holidays! can't wait for a nice break from school and work.

*remember to ask me questions on this post for the upcoming Q&A post! i will be posting answers very  very soon in a video post!*

girls- lust for life

i'm so hungry right now, but i don't feel like eating the stuff at home. don't you hate that?

anyway, do any of you guys know where i can get a pair of shoes like this? acne has a version and so do JC but they're both very expensive! leave a message if you know!

i'm about to paint more of my art poster, talk to you all later!

p.s. i just want the pizza, don't really like wine for now ( :


"Oh, I wish I had a pizza and a bottle of wine
Oh, I wish I had a beach house
Then we could make a big fire every night
Instead I'm just crazy, I'm totally mad"
