I’m not sure if many of you follow me on twitter (uhh, “chanel_world” are you trying to sell me fake Chanel stuff???), but if you are, you should very well know by now that I am completely bored out of my mind lately. Being jobless and penny-less sucks. I’ve resorted to staying at home pretty much everyday now and lounging around in my yammies. I know it’s disgusting, and I try not to let it happen, but I ended up waking up at 2pm today..even though I slept at 2am last night -______-
So anyway due to my complete boredom, I decided to take pics of my jewelry collection! These are basically all the accessories that I wear most of the time, but of course me, nanz and my mom pretty much share everything so this is not even including nanniez’s and my mom’s stuff, which would srsly be like hundreds of photos since my mom loves to collect stuff and hates wasting or throwing things away so she has some jewelry from like her younger years.
The mess on top of our dresser. The necklace branch that I bought for nanz was overloaded and it toppled onto the floor and all these branches broke off. So since then we’ve just thrown everything into a pile and it just piles up and gets harder and harder to sort through..or more like I get less and less bothered to deal with it.

This is probably the necklace I wore the most often cos it’s the most meaningful. Firstly, the round ring is a ring that me and my bestfriend Julie got together. Secondly, the squarish ring is, believe it or not, my mom’s wedding ring. Everyday I wear it, I unconsciously twirl with it and play with the rings and if I were to ever lose it (touch wood) I would probably be killed and would cry for the rest of my life.
DIY chain and ribbon accordian necklace I actually made for nanz.
Bunch of random chains
Some super random necklace with these spike/chilis that I found quite recently
Awesome chain I got for $8US on the streets of NY from some extremely bearded guy outside of Urban Outfitters on Broadway and Houston

Well glasses was something else that I really wanted to start collecting. About a year and a half ago I went to the eye doctor because my eyes were constantly blurry for some reason and it turns out, the contacts that I had been wearing were the wrong curvature and basically acted as a suction on my eyeball. SO BASICALLY, the eye doctor told me to stop wearing contacts FOREVER and that wearing glasses was really my only option for now. Not gonna lie, I cried at that point. I love sunglasses soooooooo much and I can’t wear them without wearing contacts so it just totally broke my heart. Now that it’s been so long, my doctor said my eyes have totally healed but suggests that I don’t start wearing contacts again, but he said it would be okay every now and then for just the day. But until I can afford Lasik, I’ll be just hording these to myself and saving them for that glorious day. What’s actually quite funny is that basically these 5 favourite sunglasses of mine were all purchased within the last year haha and I’ve probably only worn all of them probably only like 2/3 times each.
Miu Miu round glasses – gift from my momo :D had been wanting these for sooooo long and was so happy when I got them for Christmas last year :D
loooove these Chloe ones
Rayban Aviators. These are actually the only sunglasses I get to wear cos my mom changed the lens and added prescription so that I could wear them. It’s pretty expensive to get prescription sunglasses and I can’t even begin to tell you how stupid I feel switching from regular glasses to sunglasses constantly or even HOW annoying it can get -.-
Rayban Wayfarers that my mom scored for $50 from Century 21. Actually my brother wears them now cos I’m just sooOooOoOo nice I lend them to him.
Bottega Veneta sunglasses that I got for my birthday right before I was told I can’t wear contacts anymore Y.Y
and just for fun, here’s my bowtie that I bought from J.crew Kids :D
Lastly, I just wanted to introduce you to one of the best fruits ever. Mangosteen. They’re one of those exotic South East Asian fruits, like rambutan and durian. I think they’re pretty hard to acquire in America but if you CAN find it, I suggest you try them!! They’re sooo good and soooo sweet. Oh also, if you live in New York, there’s a juice/smoothie place on the Upper West Side (around the 100s) on Broadway that sells Mangosteen Smoothies and you haaaaaaafto get it cos it’s soooooo good.
You crack them open and they’re like garlic-clove looking things inside. Some of the bigger ones have seeds but most of them don’t.
Sooooooooo good <3
I think my readership is slightly failing right now? Oh wells :D
