Somewhat typical weekend

February 25, 2017
Cotton On top (men's) // Pacsun jeans // Converse shoes // Forever21 backpack // Eyebuydirect glasses

Bf and I decided to have a little casual date and explore the local area last weekend. We started with some Chipotle since we both haven't had it in so long; it was SO FREAKIN' DELICIOUS. Craving was satisfied! We then just went in and out stores checking out what they had. I bought something at A.C. Moore which is a craft store in case some don't know. I'm attempting a DIY. We also stopped by to get some Starbucks, of course, since it was a pretty warm day, and bf took some candid photos of me. We stumbled upon this comic book store, but didn't get to go in - it's closed on Sundays...so boo to that haha. Then, we just met up with bf's siblings and went to get sushi for dinner.
So yeah. This is what a typical weekend for me is like - so suburban, I know. If only we stopped buy a Target or Walmart - that will be the cherry on top!

Nunbangkok top // Charlotte Russe jeans // Public Desire booties

Really happy to add another Nunbangkok piece to my collection. I absolutely LOVE how unique this top is. The hardware is such a simple yet creative detail. Aside from the top, I have been wearing a lot more pinks and blush tones recently - not only because it's February, but I feel like it compliments my hair color more.

Elf Cosmetics x Weylie Hoang Lush Lash Kit Review

February 11, 2017
I got my hands on Weylie's lash collab! Her collab launch in December, I think?
I know I'm pretty late on this review, but I thought I'll still post it anyway.
EASE OF APPLICATION:  (3)
These were not the easiest lashes to put on. The band was not as flexible as the Ardell lashes. The band is thicker and I believe the material used to make the lashes is plastic? I just assume it's made of that because Elf Cosmetics is a cruelty free brand. Most lashes, like Ardell lashes, are made from mink hairs.


APPEARANCE:  (4)
I have never tried lashes that fanned out like this before. I've always thought that it would look too dramatic on me so I usually stray away from these. I really liked how thick it made my lashes; it subtly enhances them which makes them look really natural on my eyes. I just wished the band was a little longer, since it barely lined my upper lash line - just barely. Also, I wished that the curvature of the lashes were more - I tried curling them with my eyelash curler, but after a while it just goes back to the original.

Here are some selfie shots:

OVERALL:  (4)
I had pretty high hopes since Weylie mentioned how these are created to suit Asian eyes so I was a bit underwhelmed. Yes, they are voluminous, but only if you look closely. From afar, you can't really tell I have fake lashes on. It also barely shows up in photos for my eyes unless I look down or to the side which isn't a big issue since I mainly look down or to the side in my photos anyway haha. I do really like how fluttery and soft they are.

I am not sure if these lashes are still available. I heard that Weylie was trying to get them restocked so it's in the works?  
I thought I'll show these same pair of lashes on a different set of eyes so you can see the comparison. Here is a photo of how they look on my sister's eyes compared to mine.

Anyway, I'm really happy for Weylie getting a chance to make her own product and sharing it with us. I was one of the O.G. subscribers back in the day and seeing her grow and become so successful makes me feel so proud of her ❤.

New Hair. Who Dis?

February 05, 2017
Noticed anything different?

YES, NEW HAIR!


I got my hair done at a salon. I didn't intend for my hair to be this color, but it will fade to the shade of blonde I want after a couple of washes. For now I'm just enjoying this blue-ish grey color while it lasts. Stay tuned for my hair turning fifty shades of grey (lol).
