Lookbook | Belated

Time Check: 31 January 2015, 10.39pm

What the hell. One month gone. Complete insane.

Lately, with the new Samsung NX3000 that Jasper got me for Christmas, I've spent lesser time editing photos. Which, is a good thing. According to Jasper, the spec is apparently better than the first camera we bought. According to me, I know that the lens is wider, it captures a lot more details, the shutter speed is faster (no lagging between the click and the image being capture) and it makes my photos prettier. I've just explained what my camera can do in the most layman term. Smiles! 

Back to the outfit. 

Surprisingly, this outfit turned out pretty good (in my opinion alright :P) even though I was a little insecure when I stepped out of the house. I've never been a fan of cropped top, they were either too short or too small for me. So when shopkaizo picked me for their giveaway a while back, I picked this top, hoping I could make it work. And partly because Amanda pulled it off so well on their website. 


Top: shopkaizo
Skirt: H&M
Bag: Bimba Y Lola
Necklace: Lovisa (thanks Clarinda, my babeh!)

Lil' Catch-up

Time Check: 28 January 2015, 11.23pm

Right when I opened up this entry, I realized I didn't mentioned much about my birthday, how I spent it and before I know it, exactly two weeks had passed. My birthday is on 14 January and since my 21st birthday, I've been really reluctant about celebrating the subsequent birthdays to come and getting more depressed each year. 

Highlights of my January: 

- Officially 23 years old -.-
- Jasper planned a simple but awesome surprise on my birthday (he was overseas)
- Starting vlogging shamelessly

Current state-of-mind: 

Exhausted from work. I struggle to be patient with those who can't keep up the pace when it comes to work. I do realized that I have a "can't wait" attitude and somewhat impatient to get things done and not everyone can keep up. I stress myself too much. 

Exhausted from training. Been attending training lessons for a course that I've been waiting to go for. It's essentially a waste of time physically being there. I feel like we're just basically clocking time. 

Wish I did more fashion-related stuff. By stuff being - being inspired, taking lookbooks, making videos with Jasper. He's very supportive. 

And also, lately this came up - what happened to makeup? 

Ideal state-of-mind: 

Screw work. It's just work and I seriously need to take a chill pill. (like coffee everything to calm the fuck down,)

Okay, ideal state-of-mind should be chill mode... 

How about, life's too short to worry too much. I should learn to enjoy everything or just quit my job. 

Comforting word are like - when I came back from home and my mum said, "if work is too depressing, just quit". - insert halo sound effect please 

She say she will feed me. (chinese saying) 

But seriously, the ideal state-of-mind is to be happy. 

Just happy. Or simply enjoy.

Lookbook | Fine Frenzy

Time Check: 3 January 2015, 2.07am 


Almost Lover - A Fine Frenzy 

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

Messy morning. My dad decided to paint the house a few days ago, naturally the whole family hustled in orderly chaos to get things done. Gonna call it a day soon.

First lookbook shot with the new Samsung NX3000 that Jasper bought for me as my Christmas present. Thank you. I think we're both reaping the benefits from the new camera. Decided to do the least amount of editing for this lookbook. Only slight adjustments made to the exposure of the photos.

I tend to get intimidated by my new candies on the rack. Sometimes I worry I'd be putting this piece to waste, that piece I won't wear it out at all. Things like that. But, inspirations do come naturally whenever we're just about to head out to snap some photos.

Glad that I picked out a pair of badass laced-up heels instead of a pair of strappies.
