Write Once, Run Melos

Sorry for the lack of updates! I've been feeling quite poorly these couple of days and Carmen has a lot of relatives staying over so our plans have gone awry countless times. But I thought I should at least post something before my neo-citron knocks me out cold. Carmen is planning on doing a swatch on something she got for Christmas real soon :).

Anyways, here are a couple of videos/songs that I wanted to share. Thanks Jesmer for the last one (catchy song despite the video) haha.

Tokyo Jazz Freak

Tok Tok Tokyo!
 Jazz freak~

Not that I know much about jazz, but this song by 45 has been one of my favourite songs for a long time now. Recently rediscovered it and have been putting it on repeat ever since. And well, since the world is ending, you should all listen to it ;). Also, thanks to Kim for freezing with me outside to snap a couple pictures haha. Oh, and while I was buying a couple of movies for my dad, I got carded cause well…I guess I don’t look over 18. Sigh. I guess I'll take it compared to looking 15 a year ago. Anyways, just incase we won’t be able to update this week, Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone!

P.s. I kept delaying this post because we both thought we were able to fit a makeup shoot this week, but alas :(.

Topbox December 2012

So I got my December Topbox in the mail today. I opted for the more environmentally friendly packaging so I can’t say anything about the packaging other than it came in its usual cylinder box with a lid. But wow, this was a rather underwhelming box especially for December, a holiday month no doubt. I won’t rant on the contents anymore but I’ll have to wait for January’s box to see if I’ll be canceling my subscription. And I also heard Glossybox went up from $15 to $21 Canadian per month. Ouch.

Chloe eau de parfum 5mL  Chloe's signature scent captures the creative confident individuality of the Chloe woman. Full Size: $90 (50mL), $115 (75mL.) Available at fine retailers across Canada.

Ferro Cosmetics Miss Priss Blush. A brand founded by Celebrity Makeup Artist Krissy Ferro, that makes 100% natural mineral makeup. Cruelty-free. Available at There’s no sifter, but just free flowing powder in a mini jar. It has really silky consistency, looked pearly and brown on my fingers, but quite light when swatched. I've included a swatch below.

Goldwell Hot Form Spray. Strengthening styling lotion for lasting shape and smoothness. Full Size: $20.95 (150 mL). Available at select professional haircare salons.

Kellett Skincare Developed by Dr. Lisa Kellett, one of Canadá top dermatologists. Combines technologically advanced peptides. Available at

Who is she?

So currently I'm in the process of getting owned by exams. Save me.

Anyways, I've never been exactly a neon type of girl. In fact, if anyone were to take a peek at my closet, they will most likely find black, black, more black, nudes, more nudes, and the rare colored hoodie. Recently (this past summer), I've been super attracted to neon colored accessories. I was eyeing the Cambridge Satchel in either neon pink or neon yellow/green, but being the poor uni student that I am, I made a promise to myself to NOT make impulse purchases. Yay for me, I managed to pull through =). However, I did come across this bag by Material Girl (exclusively at The Bay) that's quite similar in color and style to the Cambridge Satchel. It was $45, with 30% off, and I had another coupon back then that gave me another discount, and it somehow ended up to be a little under $25. So for anyone who's looking for a cheaper option of the Cambridge Satchel, Material Girl it is (they got it in neon pink too). After all, what's the fun of shopping without the bargain and deals?!

Tip: Neon colors against black or white attires will definitely give the entire outfit more attitude.

Good luck with exams everyone!

Le soleil est près de moi

So yeah these pictures were taken in -28 degrees celsius. Probably not too smart on my part...

While watching tv yesterday, I saw an elephant mother give birth to a dead calf, it was so gross & sad yet I was too curious to turn away.  The rest of the elephants in the enclosure gave the mother space to mourn and stuff :(.

It reminded me of my first time at a zoo. My grandma kept stepping on chicken poop, my mom complained about the heat, and my dad forgot to close the goat pen and more than half ran off with the staff chasing. But that’s a story for another time.

P.s. So sorry for the lack of updates! Carmen and I have been pretty busy with exams and with shorter days it’s so hard to find enough light to shoot :(.

Cold Dust Girl

Because of my new teacher, I have been scrutinizing piano as a whole so differently.  It’s so much more abstract in an arranged way. That probably makes no sense but, most of the practicing happens mentally now as I try and get rid of the many years worth of bad habits. There really is no real reason for me to play the instrument if I don’t get the thought process right given the other variables will then provide distractions. And I still have a hard time relaxing myself (but that goes for everything e.g. getting a massage).

On a different note, I have plan to skateboard this summer...wait what?  It’s a little late but I don’t want to look back decades down the road and feel remorse and general discontent on missing out on something I wanted to do years and years ago. People that know me will probably say I’m crazy given my clumsy nature and weakening bones, but I think people see me as I present myself to them.  And how I see it, everyone knows a different side of me. Put what everyone knows of me together, and voila you have me. Just kidding.

P.s. I’m not really looking forward to Heart of the Swarm as much as I thought I would. Probably because I didn’t even ladder that much on Wings of Liberty. 

P.s.s.  Look at this: Guerlain’s Turandot. It’s super pretty and the name is chosen so well! (I can’t believe I have become this girly)
