Giordano tank, F21 shorts, AA cardi with H&M faux fur scarf attached, Converse DIY studded chucks.
(wow, awesome way to start the post..blurry pic with stupid face, yay!)
lulz closed eyes yes! Actually this happens all the time..I mean to be completely honest, the distance that it takes for my eyelids to close is probably muchhh less than an average persons distance…so yeah I blink a lot..and no..there was no flash.
Both DIY necklaces
So again a milllllllllllllllllllion years since my last post huh…ok honestly internet was down a couple of days and I’m rarely ever home on the weekends so my laptop isn’t always with me aaaand i always work till about 7pm so by the time i get home its dinner, relaxing, shower then sleep! Yah those are my lame excuses hahaha. Anyway I’ll just get straight to my bullet points:
Halloween is finally coming up this weekend!! At first I was a bit meh about it, thinking my friend’s and I’s costumes weren’t really going to work out buttt we just got everything we needed last Saturday so now i’m getting excited againnnn :D I’m just waiting on one little package to arrive in the mail to complete the look but heeheh more on that when it actually arrives (EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
I’ve started teaching on Saturday mornings. I teach English to little local kids at a local Chinese school…I have to say that it is toooooooooootally draining. I teach 3 different classes, each for 1 hour. My first class is primary 6 (grade 5) and they’re ooookay..a little badly behaved but a little mature so they’re okay. Second class is primary 3 and 4 and jesus-fking-zomg they make me want to rip my hair out and shove it down my OWN throat. Every class, I almost lose my voice..and shout sooo loud that i swear, you can feel the walls vibrate. Okay anyways…my last class are primary 1 kids and..oh man such a relief after that devil class. They’re sooooooooooooooooooooooo freaking cute and adorable I just wanna squeeze all of them in one big giant group hug. SOO cute..I’d take photos of the cuties but…that’d be kinda creepy hahaha.
I FINALLY got round to taking pics of some my new stuff I got..initially my excuse for postponing blogging was cause I never had good enough light for taking these still shots but..whatevz my orange-y bed-light will have to do.
oh and lastly, like I said, I’m expecting a package, hopefully sometime this week and I am sooooooooooooooo excited. Can’t wait to show you guys what it is!! I mean..maybe it won’t be that great for you guys but YAY i can’t wait :D
Took my PB to a famous dumpling place last week for lunch :D and srsly this is probably HEAVEN in a bowl. Suen Lat Tong (Hot&Sour soup) with veggie dumplings and noodles from Wong Fu (Central, Wellington St). ZZzzzzzomgggg soooooooooooooo good.
lalalala pretty street lanterns
H&M print dress and shorts, Frye harness boots, Costume National bag, DIY pin necklace, H&M and Hermes black wrap bracelets and Mong Kok studded bracelet.
Okay this was last Sunday on the roof of IFC Mall. My full proper outfit shot was stupid so this is all you get. Anyway my mom was super chic and cute on Sunday and she was like “put me on your blog!!!!!” so haha here you go:
Zara white shirt, Uniqlo jeans, Chanel wingtip mary-janes, Hermes Victoria bag and watch.
hahaha her cuuuuuuuuuuuuties Chanel wingtip mary-jane flats!!! Serious ah-sum style hahaha.
Oh and here’s a close-up of her necklace. Her friend bought it for her so I have no idea what brand it is but basically it’s awesome because it’s a bunch of different vintage-looking rings looped together. The necklace was much longer before but the thing is so damn heavy I had to shorten it for her.
Heheehhe this is ninniez sporting my new extra-large nerd glasses and a wonderful Totoro fan I got for Helie heaheahehe :D
Another awwwwwwwwesome display at Lane Crawford IFC.
Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm GIANT BAG OF WONG-WONG’s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Want want…but seemed a bit too ridiculous. (oh and p.s. to whoever said it’s WANG-WANG and to get my Chinese right…..aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaactually it really is Wong-Wong because I’m speaking Cantonese and not Mandarin heahea okay!)
haehaheahe actually, this is a secret photo of the classroom before the class started…..man..what a way to spend my Saturday mornings huh? Well it only made sense..since PB works Saturday mornings too..and so does Julie, my bestfriend, so really I guess I had nothing better to do! At least I’m making a few extra bucks to fund my shopping addiction!
LOL this is my friend’s poodle PANADOL (like..HK’s version of Tylenol, lol) anyways..he loves jumping haha.
My mom has these seriously great super old (20 years +) Walter Steiger shoes and I am dyingggg to find a pair exactly the same. Too bad that she’s about a size smaller than me UGH. Not exactly sure what these sort of style of shoes are called so it’s been a bit hard to find a similar pair online..anyone have any ideas?
Aaaand finally, here’s some new accessories I got/made recently:
This amazing pin piece with random beads/studs/chains sewn on. On the back there’s a thingie for you to either pin it on your jacket/coat/clothes or a hair pin thingie that you can slip onto the lapel of your blazer or…in your hair. After being totally amazed and in love with my new find…a few days later I found a bunch of other places selling the exact same thing..and it made me sad ): I guess that’s what you get for living next to China where eeeeeeeeeeverything is made in thousands.
My mom got back from visiting my sister who lives in Amsterdam a few weeks ago and she brought back this amazing bracelet from COS. It sucks that I’ve never ever been to a COS store before..I can’t wait to go to Europe/England next year, I’m going to go nutsssssssssssss.
A new geometric necklace I made. Much more simplified..just one triangle on a long black chain. I love this piece and have been wearing it loads lately.
Another necklace I made recently. It’s a wooden black cross on a black suede string. heahehaeh scroll down for a surprise :D
Bought this awesome gold small-studded double-wrap bracelet. I’ve been wearing it as my staple bracelet on my watch hand..where I normally only wear my gold bangle and black plastic bracelet.
And theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese are my new babies! They’re Marni from..I don’t even know what season, that I managed to score at the Pedder Sale :D I haven’t worn them out yet..cos..actually they’re kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiind of small so gotta stretch them out a bit first. Any suggestions on how to?
