New Lenses

So 2 weeks ago I have received my lenses that I bought from ulzzangstyle. I must say they did take long to arrive due to the holidays, reaching the required amount of orders, owner being busy. But I trust the website so I didn't worry too much.

I bought 2 this time just because I don't want to feel like I want another pair and then having to order again lol.

Geo Honey Wing

Geo Nudy Grey

& came with cute lense cases ^_^

I just opened the Nudy Grey lenses because I don't want to have so much lenses opened.

Taken with my new Canon EOS 500D ^_^ (no more mobile phone camera quality nhe nhe nhe)

I like the idea of having very dark hair and bright eyes (not too bright though), it gives a nice contrast :)
Wish my hair was black like Snow White >_< but I can't dye my hair since I'm too scared my hair will fall out even more T_T so I said to myself I will dye it when I'm much older and need to cover the greys LOL

I'm wearing Everyday Minerals foundation and blusher (All Smiles). My new fave <3 Will do a review on them in the next post hopefully ^_^

Say hello to my new camera:

Loveeeeeee it!!! Can't wait to get my tripod and remote control, then I'll be ready to go and discover the beauty of the world ^_^ YAYYY no more days at home and being bored (though the weather needs to get a bit better, it's been freezing!)

Happy Chinese New Year folks!

A piece of me in...

Oh My Days this is so late! Sorry Toothfairy T_________T

I like: My new digital SLR :) So much more to do now! Took me 4 months to realise which one I wanted the most. Reading through numerous amount of reviews and every single detail, I settled with Canon EOS 500D.

I don't like: The fact that Canon has just announced their new EOS 550D which is to go on sale in April. Madly not happy >_< it means that the one I just bought will go down in price! *Sigh*

I want you to know that: Um how should I say this? I want to blog more but time doesn't allow me to do so >_< I don't know why but it takes me absolutely ages to write up at least one post. I worry too much about grammar and spelling. One of the reason being is because I want to improve my English. Though I am glad I don't have to do English as one of my subjects any more, I still have the urge to enhance it (<-- probably a wrong word to use but I don't want to use 'improve' again). I always say this but I don't want to keep on saying it that I will try to blog more because it will just come and go. So let's just let it come naturally.

I've planned: To brush my hair more but I loathe the amount of hair that is fallen out every time I do so.

I want to say to someone special: I love all the bloggers that I have met here so far. All of you inspire me in some ways, even the littlest and very simple things. For that I thank you so much and hope that we can become great friends! =)

Boxing Day (Part 2)

Wow so sorry, this is so overdueeeeeeeeeee! These past few weeks have been so hectic, having to revise for exams and then doing them the week after. Very no good combination! This topic goes around so much and it's so boring (well for me at least) so I'll shut up now and get on with the post ^_^

Green Hoodie £19.99 (TK-Maxx)
I am on a hunt to get a few very colourful hoodies. But it's ultra hard for me to find the ones that fit me and actually look like. I am giving up on the ones in JD, there was a massive sale and they were quite cheap but the minute I put them on, I looked like something else. So maybe now I gotta look around in TK-Maxx since you never know what you come across may be something so much better than what you normally see ^_^

Skinny Grey Trousers £14.99 (H&M)
Just a pair to go to school with on the days when I want to dress smarter and more practical. They go great with pumps or converses.

Scarf £3 (H&M)
Just a random scarf I picked up. I don't know why but I guess it was the price. Better suited for spring/summer though?

Glittery Cardigan £12 (Next)
OMG I love this cardi! It's so pretty! It has reflex glitters and the shoulders bit have this really nice edge, almost looks like those blazers with large shoulder pads but this is the softer, less fierce version. Now the only problem is where to wear it.

I also got the MAC Studio Finish Concealer. I don't know why I bought this since I don't think I am going to use it very much, it just adds up the time it takes for me to do my make-up. I'm not sure if I like it or not or perhaps I should stop using my brush and use fingers instead? And maybe I need to apply more so that it is more opaque and actually hides my dark circles?

That's all I bought on that day, though I did buy some things recently, out of boredom. I was suppose to just do window shopping but then I have come across pretty nice items for a good price so I thought why not?

Leopard Pumps! I been wanting a pair of these for so long but could never find a nice looking, and affordable one. These are from Barratts and were originally £20 and that's too high for my liking. So now they had a half price offer and I got these for a tenna! I had to grab these straight away :D They are great with the grey skinny trousers and a trench coat. I been wearing it all week (& more weeks to come)!

Heart shaped fluffy rug! Aw ain't it pretty? What a great thing to prettify my dull bedroom ^_^ It was from a shop called flutterbyes I think? They sell loads of pretty vintage items, like tea sets, cushions, hanging signs all sorts! This was only £12. I saw them way long time ago but I didn't want to buy it yet, don't know why and when I decided to buy it they didn't have it anymore! I was gutted but thought oh well. Now they selling it again so I just grabbed one right away :D My socks match the pinkness too ^_^

I was in need of a good and soft blusher brush. I came across the Ruby & Millie one and immediately fell in love with it! Though for £15, I did think it was quite expensive so instead I bought the enhance brush which is smaller and angled. I don't mind the size of it because I like how you can achieve a more defined look as well. This is retailed at £12.50 at boots but I got it for £7.50 since I had a £5 voucher. Might go back and see if there are any other good brushes because I have quite a few of those vouchers ^_^

I feel as if this is rather boring post since I wasn't so excited about the purchases except for the pumps and the rug really but I hope you guys enjoy it ^_^ I'll try post more often if I can.

I want to design a new layout but time doesn't allow me to do so. So much things I want to do but I always have to push them aside and get on with what really needs to be done.

I hope you all have had a good weekend ^_______^

Boxing Day (Part 1)

Wow I am so late but better late than never right? I have already declared that I am never going out on boxing day, let's see if I do that this year.

Can you guess how many times I been shopping since boxing day? Practically 5 days in a row. It was such a chaos. Especially River Island, every single shoe was on the floor and clothes were hardly even hanging on the racks. I tripped over so many hangers and the security guard kept on saying sorry and slyly pushed all the hangers on the floor into a corner LOL! I didn't get any clothes on boxing day, but I did get some the days after but I'll post that in my part 2. So all I got was make-up which wasn't that exciting coz I was just stocking up but I did get some new things to try out :)

Ohh I did take some photos of my eye make-up I did on that day although you can't really see it, I thought I would post anyway :)

I used my Chanel palette which has been neglected to the extent that my mum took it and it's been with her for let's say a good amount of time.

The brown is literally gone but I just kept on swirling my brush like crazy monkey anyway. Wondering why it's finished before all the other colours? Well it was when I was loving the brown too much and applied it all the time! So that's why it's finished =_= Ohh and this was also my first eyeshadow quad/palette so that also explains the excitement of using an eyeshadow LOL.

Here's what I bought:

I'm such a Revlon fan. I think this is the only brand I like to buy from consistently that is a lower end brand.

I bought another brush of theirs (note: I actually want all but I am currently trying to stop this urge to go and buy them) which is the 'all over shadow brush'. It's really soft and applies the shadows really nicely so definitely a good buy!

Revlon All Over Shadow Brush
Price: £6.86

All I can say is that I love this stuff <3 There's so many reviews on this & I'm sure most of you know that this stuff is great :)

Revlon ColorStay Foundation in 180 Sand Beige
Price: £11.99

My eyeliner was running out so I got another one.

Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner in Black
Price £5.99

I finally bought my first lipstick! I thought lipsticks could never work on me because I would never know what colour to get. Lipsticks are far easier to choose from, since they suit everyone in my opinion, but lipsticks are different. They can take longer to apply too but that's where sophistication comes in. There can be so much style, culture and emotion with wearing just a lipstick. I've only just realised that so my apologies if you already know so.

This is from the matte collection that came out quite a long time ago. I wanted a matte lipstick so that I could change from the 'oh-so-glittery' lip gloss to a less sparkling and more natural option. Not that I wear much lipgloss these days anyway, I loathe the hair sticking onto gloss. I been meaning to get this but I wanted to wait until there was 3 for 2 offer :)

Revlon Matte Lipstick in 003 Mauve It Over
Price: £7.29

& here's me sporting it:

Quite a nice and natural colour which I really like :)

Ohhh and last but not least I finally bought something from MAC! First Mac purchase ever, lol got so excited.  There's not much that I like from Mac apart from their blushes, eyeshadows and maybe their brushes but the brushes are so expensive. So I finally made up my choice being there for 30mins!

Bought a...*drum rolls*
BLUSH! *applause* LOL

Took me so long to choose and I had to get some help from the staff there. I asked for a blush that was kind of pinky but has a hint of coral and just a little bit of shimmer. At the end she picked the blush in 'peachykeen' which is the one I picked up at the start! Think I should go with my instincts next time and save time to not ask the staff there.

Now I need a good blusher brush to apply this.

Woah now that was a long post. So to finish off this post I will leave you with my Raffaello that I have been munching on this whole holiday. It was truly a heaven :)

Hope you're all doing well =)
