Dark and Darker

Two days ago I got my hair cut and dyed. I didn't want to post up the photos I took that day because I didn't like the photos lol so here's some I took today =)

I'm still trying to use to the dark hair. I asked for a dark brown and it came out more like black =\ I'm hoping the color will fade a bit. I haven't had dark hair for over 3 years!!! It's always been some light brown/blonde color, a color my mum really hated xD

I'm enjoying the positive feedback I've been getting from work and friends. Some people at work were, like, wondering,"Is this a new chick?" Then looked at my face carefully and were like "Oh! It's you!" One of my close friends even admitted she walked right past me, forgetting that I had dyed my hair.

My mum's reaction was super delayed though =___= I came home the day I got my hair done and she kind of...raised her eyebrows at me about the length of my hair (she likes short hair....SUPER short hair and my hair is medium long at the moment) but no comment on the color. The morning AFTER she's goes,"OMG! YOU DYED YOUR HAIR! It's a lovely color!" Geez Mum >__>

We'll see how long this dark phase goes for until I revert back to my brown/blonde-ness ~

[[Quick updates]] Shopping!

Really slack with blog posts lately due to working and lack of exciting things happening. But this week was great!

Started the week off with Boxing Day shopping with bf at DFO. I was really "urrrgh" when he told me he'd pick me up at 9am to go the shopping center, which turned out to be a good thing because yeah he was right! It was hard to get a car park that early! There was a lot of items on sale but I just didn't buy as much as I did last year...I just didn't find the need to buy new clothes, shoes or jewellery even if they were on sale =\ I'm so close yet so far from buying the two things that I actually want!!! (Rages!!)

But despite that, I did also buy two singlets from Jay Jay's just to wear to sleep lol and two cute mugs from DFO! One just has a heart pattern all over and the other has 3 cupcakes decorated around it =) My bf was all like,"Are you serious? Why are you buying two?! You just need one! You can just wash it and reuse it! Why buy two?!" ahahaha xD He's a believer in not wasting things or buying unnecessary things ~ *coughsforexamplemymugscoughs*

But the most expensive purchase of that day was Clinique's All About Eyes Rich eye cream. The area around my eyes have been extremely dry and it's a pain whenever I apply concealer on because the makeup just sticks onto the dry areas ><

According to the Clinique website it states:

"Moisture-rich formula diminishes the look of undereye circles, shadows, puffs and fine lines-immediately and over time. Helps protect natural collagen production. De-puffs with soothing botanicals. Even strengthens skin's moisture barrier against common irritants."

And I gotta say this eye cream is pretty amazing. It is very moisturizing! But I have yet to see anything happen to my eye bags T_T That's the only part I'm doubtful on but we will see how it goes.

Annnnnnnnnnnd finally I went to Collette today before work and bought a packet of rings for half price ! Hooray for sales! LOL I actually was looking for a silver pair of dangly earrings but couldn't find any that I liked then these caught my eyes *___* Actually it was the bow that caught my eye haha

I like 3/5 of them ~ the other two are too plain and boring >< I like simple rings like the pearl and bow.

I'm going to go shopping again tomorrow because I've got my eye on this particular dress but I want to try it on before I buy!

Hair color change

I dyed my hair at the end of October with Palty Bitter Cappucino and it faded quickly away to the blonde/brown. I really like this color except for the fact that there are still black roots at the back of my head lol ><

Online shopping Arrives~!!!! Or rather..arrived....>_>

Another late post where I post about things that happen a week AFTER it occurs harhar...

I went online shopping a few weeks ago and it seemed liked FOREVER for the items to arrive to my house, but really it was just like 4-5 weeks LOL

The first shopping parcel came through was from pinkyparadise!!!
My order only contained the Candy Doll concealer in 01 and cheek color in Strawberry Pink.

The concealer was securely wrapped in this pink foam thing but the blush was just as it is O_o

I also got a Velcro fringe thingy as a freebie from Pinkyparadise. I've wondered how they work and how they can really hold your hair back up but amazingly it does!!! xD

I gotta say this Candy Doll blush is amazing!!! I read a lot of reviews before purchasing it and thought the reviewers were exaggerating when they said the color was intense! Just one swipe and so pigmented! I used a medium-sized powder brush to brush it on and it works well for me =)

The second parcel was from pretty&cute
This was the one that was I was most keen on and again took a while to arrive. I ordered on 31st of October and arrived 2nd of December.
It arrived in a small box and delivered straight to my door by a courier but he left it on the wrong side of the house >< Thankfully I was home to pick it up. When I first opened it I couldn't seen anything except that white stuff. The items were at the bottom.

So I ordered the Dr. Jart's Blue Label Dew Drop BB Cream and Lioele Waterdop Sleeping Pack. Based on a video review by S2Janie in one of her videos, she mentioned that the Lioele sleeping pack is good for help tightening the skin and pores (or something like that) and to help the skin more youthful ~~

One thing that took me by surprise was that both bottles were sealed. I can't remember the last time I purchased something that had a seal on it like this >< So that made me feel secure knowing I got what I paid for!

I read reviews (again!) that the Dr. Jart's BB cream is good for combo-oily skin but then that what's I also read about the BB cream I'm currently using lol -the Skin79 pink one. I still find that I get oily on my t-zone even with powder on top. I did like that the Skin79 made my complexion whiter but it also had a downside.I wore it to work and had a customer say I look a bit sickly =____= which is why I went and bought blush! I want to use my Skin79 BB cream first before I start using the new one.

And finally from eBay! Telephone wire hair ties! Ever since my friend told me these type of hair ties won't leave kinks in your hair I've been really interested in them! Just looking at the design I thought it would but I suppose because it's made out of plastic that it doesn't...? It's been great tying my hair up and then just pulling it out without having to worry about that ugly kink. I bought a pack of 10 for $1.30 from a HK seller. Again took over a month ><

I'm really finally glad to have received ALL my items but I don't think I'll be ordering from pinkyparadise or pretty&cute anytime soon! I did, however, just make a purchase two nights ago on ebay for a Christmas present for someone lol ~~ fingers crossed it comes before christmas >< even a few days after christmas I wouldn't mind!

[REVIEW] 59 Seconds Floral Dress

Ok so waaaaay back in September I did a Yesstyle order and they came the following week but I never actually reviewed the items lol
I'm still way too lazy to review ALL the items (despite the fact I'm on uni holidays now) so here's one for now.

Being the fourth day of holidays I decided to catch up with an old high school friend. We just had a simple lunch together then headed off the museum, which practically had nothing and no one in it because they were renovating for the next show. I took this opportunity to wear one of the dresses I've been dying to wear but just didn't have time, the right occasion, or the right weather.

Brand Name: 59 Seconds
Floral Print Chiffon Dress


True to stock image! The material is chiffon and there is a satin layer underneath so the dress feels very smooth to the skin when worn =)

I originally disliked this one because I thought I looked like something out of Peter Pan with that collar/flappy thingy >__> But after wearing it today, I changed my mind. I love this dress!!! You can see on the website image the dress is very short and on me, it is no exception. It just covers my bum lol I was going to wear heels (like the stock image) but I though that would make my dress ride up even more >< That's probably my own complaint. If I was shorter it would probably be the perfect length. But I don't mind the length too much since it's so hot here now ~~ There is a green version also available.

And just a few more self-vain photos xD

My mom said I looked like a 15 year child while my friend said my dress reminded me of her grandmother's quilt and the wallpaper LOL

[[UPDATE]] Too many O_O

It's been way too long since the last blog post so here is quick rundown:

No more blonde~!
Yes just last week I dyed my hair to some brown color lol I was getting sick of the black roots being a disgusting contrast against the 'blonde' (I don't really consider it blonde anymore, more like orangey/blonde =\) so I decided to go brown. I just used a bottle from the chemist. It didn't change my black roots but now the roots blend more nicely with the brown and don't stick out so much.

I used Schwarzkopf Perfect Mousse in Hazelnut. In a nutshell, it's shampoo type hair dye. I thought it would easier but no. I personally only recommend this to people who have short long. Medium-long hair is too annoying to use this with.

Honestly, don't the End Results look all the same?

New phone~! I'm on a plan with this one. I just wanted a new phone because ... well ... the old one was ... old lol
I've noticed many of the phones on the market have pretty much similar styles and design ie. the giant touch screen and applications with a few differences in between each phone brand. My only major tiff with this phone is the keyboard for messaging! I constantly keep hitting the period/full stop button because it's right next to the space bar!! It's very annoying so my messages usually >_>

It looks prettier now since I got a light pink phone case for it =D And I got some pink themes happening !

I will make a whole new post dedicated to my Yesstyle order~! I'm actually disappointed with one of the clothing pieces I received but more in detail later.

Another Yesstyle order!!!

A few days ago, my friend and I placed an order through Yesstyle since they were having a special promo for Australians, that if customers spend more than $99 worth then shipping would be FREE!!! Of course we both jumped aboard ! Normally it's $150 & more to get free shipping. It's been a while since I've done some serious shopping and with this order, I'm going to have to force myself not to buy anything (clothes-wise) in the next 2 months~!

I've ordered through Yesstyle twice previously and I've been pretty satisfied with the clothes condition. They're not cheap and flimsy, like other asian fashion sites I've tried and good quality!

This is what I ordered:

My friend ordered these:

These are expected to ship out on the 12th of September! Can't wait! =D

Birthday Dinner

9th July 2011

Went out to dinner with the fam bam for an early birthday celebration. Just went to a Chinese restaurant and yeah. Not much to say really so here are photos!

Main meals...there were more, just no photos

Dessert! It was just 5 peeled lychees and huge dollop of vanilla ice cream =_= Not amazing at all!

My brother's deep fried ice cream with chocolate topping looked more amazing than mine T^T

Annnnd....myself =D Wanted to dress up a little bit so wore a simple grey dress with pearl necklace and earrings. I'm noticing my hair is getting more & more blonder =O

Angry Bird toy! My brother's bday gift!

I cannot believe time has flown so quickly and it is already July!
8 more days until I leave my teenage years !

So I redyed my hair after 3 months. This time I went to a new salon called Mumu Hair & Beauty. It's run by Koreans but there are Chinese too. And the best part? They play kpop music while you're getting your hair done xD Oh and they have a giant tv somewhere to watch the kpop live perfs ~

Photo from their Facebook page. More photos can be found HERE

I went from this:

to this:

Big change, yes? This is the lightest I have ever gone. Every now and then, under certain lighting, my hair looks slightly green =\

Customer service?
I felt quite welcomed when I walked into the salon. The girls were so friendly =)

$400 -> $370
The most I have ever paid for a hair dye job. Because I had to get my hair bleached then redyed I had to pay double the price. And because I came in early in the morning (10.30am?) I got $30 off the total price. I got a trim for free.

Worth it?
I think so. They dyed my entire hair properly and I don't see any patchy or missed spots, like the previous hair salon. I'm quite satisfied with it =)

Sushi Lunch Date!

Finally on mid-semester break! And the first thing I did was go on a lunch date with a lovely friend =3

We headed out to a sushi restaurant on the south side of Brisbane.
We were the first people to enter the place lol

We ordered 4 dishes which was enough for two people! We ended up doing take away for the left overs xD

Entree: Takoyaki balls! My favourite =3

Main: Green Dragon Sushi
The sushi is wrapped in another layer - cucumber.
I was a bit hesitant about eating this one but it was yummy XD

Main: Himawari sushi aka Sunflower sushi

Main: Teriyaki chicken sushi
My friend lol'd at me when I said I wanted this but hey it was still good!

It was amazing sushi XD <3 Definitely going there again one day!

New shoes ! XD

Yes I went shopping. AGAIN.
This time for shoes ><

Fashion shopping in Australia can really suck sometimes because the fashion is not cute and stylish like Asia. They tend to be more on the plain side =\

So I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into a particular store all the shoes were so cute and adorable!!! The SA then told me the shoes were imported from Taiwan! The shop was having a sale ... 20% off the first pair, and 40% off the second pair. Though when I look at my receipt, it doesn't really work out the way I think it does but I'm not too bothered. They were already on a huge discount anyways. From $150 down to $70!

Isn't the bow just adorable!??!

I used to absolutely loathe the color pink but I've found myself being attracted to it lately (pink nail polish, hair accessories etc) and these shoes are no exception. Though now I'm wondering what I can wear with them...because most of my clothes are dark =\

What's really amazing about these shoes, the inside of the shoes are really comfortable! It's like walking on cushions! Almost! XD
Can't wait to wear them out more ~
