Loving Zippy's purple & grey striped sweater. I think I just adore stripey things in general. The composition of that particular image is so pretty with the matching flowers and white picket fence. Sorta makes me miss sprawling green fields and my garden back home in Oz.

This weekend was definitely a movie weekend. I ended up watching Bridesmaids (hilarious!), Columbiana, Cowboys and aliens and The rise of the planet of the apes. I would recommend watching the first (for a laugh) and last (for a cry) aforementioned. Today marks the last day of my summer break and Monday means a new semester...
let the chaos begin.

I remember I was slightly besotted with those red tie-up Marc by Marc wedges a few seasons back. I still think they're rather cute...however, nowadays I'm more crazy about sporting red on my lips with a major RED LIPPIE than on my feet. Hope you have a smashing Friday night everyone! :)

Current newbies in my life. Brown floppy hat bought from Gmarket (never buying hats online again- it sits way too big on my head), oatmeal cardigan from one of the little stores under Kangnam station and too cool for school foam cleanser. Okay, so maybe subconsciously I'm getting ready for fall...

Sort of a funny name for a French label (shouldn't it be like avril, mai ?) but it doesn't matter because the clothes are definitely my cup of tea. I don't think I'm ready for fall just quite yet even though I complain about the humidity and such. I love summer a little too much for sure and I swear I'll end up posting something like icecream and bathing suits tomorrow. You just watch and see.

Totally brings down the overall girly look down a notch. Six words.
I'd wear this to a wedding.

It's a Thursday night and I'm at the computer again drinking some steaming green tea with a dash of milk.
So delightfully creamy.
Staying inside all day today with the A/C on made it seem like it's not as stinking humid outside as it seems and probably why I'm drinking something hot for a change. I would kill for a cool, sea breeze.

I am a huge fan of make-up but the funny thing is is that most of the time I hardly wear any. The most I wear is when I go out on the weekends but even that entails only foundation, blush and a lippie. No eye make-up because everything just smudges (it certainly doesn't help that I have asian eyes) and I totally skip the mascara but I am quite obsessed with procuring the perfect eyebrow. A good brow does wonders to your facial features.
I have major brow envy when I see ladies with thick, lucious brows- think Megan Fox, Tallulah Morton, Camilla Belle. Many of my friends pluck their own, wax, go to the Benefit brow bar, grow out and do all sorts of things to obtain their perfect arch. I was plucking mine the other day and was just wondering, what do you do with your brows to keep them in tip-top shape?
p.s. Anastasia of Beverly Hills has partnered with The Confluence and they have contacted me to review their Beauty Express Brow Kit for brunettes so I can't wait to get my hands on it! Will definitely tell you how it goes.
