All The Conversations Missing Their Link

Monday, July 28, 2014

A little notice for any of you guys who ever plan on visiting Texas during your summer vacations, load your suitcase(s) with dresses. You'd be darn outright crazy walking out in this desert weather with any layers. Trust me on this. I've been spending the last couple of summers lavished in New Jersey's perfect summer weather climate thanks to the shore's refreshing breeze that I ended up packing quite a number of layering pieces that way I can easily change up my looks without it looking like I'm constantly repeating my outfits but man it is just way too hot to go through all the fuss of finding various ways to change up my outfits. Save yourself the trouble and just load up on some simple accessories to change up your looks instead. Oh and don't forget the sunnies! Can't forget them~

How To Forget? We Can't Forget

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

So a little while back, me and my sister were strolling around Vintage Park Blvd. around the Houston area and just happened to stumble upon this beautiful alley and without hesitation I just knew I had to get some quick outfit shots in for you guys! Simple and casual I know, but hey I was never into the phancy-dolling-myself up thing just to go out and have a blast with friends. Guess it's that young tomboy-ish self of mines since I was young that I can't ever forget.

Embrace the Future We Haven't Seen

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

These last couple of days, along with the next couple of days, me and my sister have the house to ourselves and have made it our ultimate mission to cook ourselves proper meals, which we haven't had for the longest time due to all the crazy hectic-ness that's been going on over here, and not cave in to instant or fast food meals. So while I know I've been slacking a bit with outfit posts for you guys, be rest assured that I'm not being entirely bummy at home hehe~ You can probably tell from these photos that I've utterly obsessed with incorporating eggs, avocados, and mushrooms into my diet ha. Nowadays I can't help but look forward to my coming meals to see what I whip together. Makes me excited for the future and the days coming ahead! Stay optimistic, even if it's through food guys.
The only picture of myself that I have to show for as proof that I'm not dead and that someone's not simply just impersonating me on my blog to give you guys some feed. (シ_ _)シ

So collectively, I'm obsessed with the Japanese Edo Period, Samurai and Yakuza modernized fashion, top-knot buns, french braid pigtails, minimalistic and simplistic yet refreshing fashion and tattoos, knee-high leg brace accessories, sunny side up eggs (always been a morning and breakfast fan!), sheer socks, . . . in all honesty guys, this list could probably go on for days, which is a sure sign that I've been scrolling bouts the pages of Tumblr posts for much too long, though as always, my go-to outfit colors navy blue, black, and white and now with the addition of mint, sky blue, and pale pink! Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend and stay tuned for another miraculous and surprising appearance from moi huhu~ toodles for now yo b(^u^)b time to go back to being a shameless otaku. Seriously though. So many good animes this season; so hard trying to stay on schedule with all of them.

PHOTO DIARY // May - June

Saturday, July 5, 2014

When I tell you that May was a hectic month, I mean seriously, it was one heck of a crazy month. Every weekend was spent doing something, it even got to the point where friends had to schedule appointments because I would literally be booked all day. Aye, now don't start getting the wrong idea here either. Sometimes being booked for me means lounging around the house to spend some family time together since it's the first summer where all my mum's daughters are away from home for the summer. No shame, I call her everyday like a lost child going ecstatic over having the opportunity speak to my all-time favorite idol! Anywho, so lets get started with this photo diary thang!

note: shrinking all these photos (just selecting the major ones) so that I can actually cram more things into this post without flooding you guys so much to the point where you guys grow tired of endlessly scrolling down through this post.

Mother's Day celebration! It was a crazy beautiful day I tell ya. Perfect for celebrating such an important person in all of our lives' existence. So glad we live by the shore (:
Received 2nd Place in the art show for my 3D sculpture of Sherlock Holmes using mixed media. After the art show, we went to watch Godzilla on opening night and then hit up Red Robins!
ONE OK ROCK Concert at the Trocadero Theatre in Philadelphia, PA as part of my sister's early birthday present hehe~ They were truly amazing live! Got blessed with Toru's water *cough* *cough* and me and my sister both got our hands on Tomoya's personal drumsticks!
Speaking of birthdays, there was a massive amount of birthday celebrations throughout May. It was literally cake after cake after cake. They were worth the additional added weight that I definitely packed on after stuffing myself with life young as long as I can.
And then you can't forget about the casual college reuniting hangouts that are always a must.

Official celebration of my sister's 21st birthday~ Our other sister joined us all the way from the east coast through Skype. Thank you technology for coming so far to allow us to do so.
VAN'S WARPED TOUR: This is honestly the highlight of my entire summer, right here baby! And no, it is by no means too early to say that because I highly doubt that anything could top this momentous experience. Getting the chance to meet ONE OK ROCK twice in one summer was insane! But what's even more insane is that I was I was actually able to hug them, talk to them, hug them, get autographs, hug them, get pictures with them...oh and did I mention hug them? (ha) No kidding though, we went into line three times. And every chance I got to hug Toru (my main bias hoho), you bet I took every chance regardless of how sweaty we both were.
Waited till after everyone was done with their single photos and autographs to properly beg their manager to allow us to take a proper group photo with ONE OK ROCK. So worth the wait and you can definitely expect me to print this group photo out onto a poster and hang in my room to always remember.
Had the opportunity to grub on some famous Coreanos food truck goodies at the tour!
So Taka was the only member that I was able to get a proper picture with using my camera because their Japanese manager was kind enough to take the picture for me! Was stoked that we somewhat matched!
Seriously wish I could have gotten better individual pictures with these guys but their U.S tour manager was rushing us so I was stuck with quick phone selfies *sigh* nonetheless, regardless of how crappy I look I can't believe all this happened!
Got burnt super badly from walking around the dessert for what felt like days but at the end of the day it was all worth it.
Spent the next couple of days chilling with my Uncle's friend's family. Glad to have had the opportunity to bond with them!
And don't even get me started with Starbucks yo. My aunt got me hooked on the green tea frapp for days on end. It was so bad but so good at the same time. I've been a huge fan of green tea/matcha goods and I've tried green tea frapps at many other places yet for some reason I never tried the one at Starbucks till this summer.
on the side note, how many of you guys are watching the newly released Sailor Moon Crystal? I was so stoked when I heard Sailor Moon was making a comeback! Seriously, this series was my childhood and idols!

REVIEW // Neutrogena Age Shield Face Sunblock Lotion

Thursday, May 29, 2014

This facial sunblock has definitely been my go-to sunblock all year round! Ever since I started using it, I've gradually started to notice that my face would not turn be so quick to turn red as it used to. Even after hours of being under the sweltering sun and sweating like a mad pig, my face would only go so far as to show a slight tint of pink tones on the cheeks and at times it would even remain neutral looking which is the best part!

However, the type of skin you may have is definitely something to always consider when searching for the ideal facial sunblock. Reason being, my sister actually owned this sunsblock lotion prior to giving it to me to use because she felt it didn't quite meet her expectations, to which I then grew to be obsessed with. If your skin tends to secrete an excess amount of oil then I would probably not recommend this product for you because my sister felt that it only made her skin more oily. On the other hand, if you have dry skin like I do, then I would highly recommend this product because it acts as both an excellent source of moisture and protection for your skin.

Both me and my sister must agree though, that the application feels slightly heavier than some sunblocks (depends on whichever you normally use) but that's why they instruct that you apply it 30 minutes before being exposed to the sun. Afterwards, you wouldn't even feel like you're wearing anything on your face which is the beautiful part because you can still apply your usual BB Cream, etc. to your face without having to worry about your face feeling too thick. Moreover, you will definitely notice your skin appearing slightly paler upon immediate application but after the 30 minute duration it should settle properly into your skin and look natural. So even if you applied this during the winter season, you won't look like a complete vampire.
