Pink

h&m shirt // brandy melville dress // h&m sandals // vintage cuff&rings


Summer is not quite over yet and to be honest, I can't wait for the sweater weather. I miss wearing my leather jacket and sweaters so much! University wise, the assignmnets are very time consuming, and I find juggling classes, homework, more homework, blogging, a bit of little social life, grocery shopping, and more homework quite challenging.

Anyway, to the outfit, I got this bag years ago and like some other things that I own, I haven't give it as much love as it deserves. I paired it with my go to black dress with white button up on top. For once, I didn't wear all black with this bag.

Products That Saved My Skin

the body shop warming mineral mask // philosophy purity // neutrogena skinclearing foudation // neutrogena on the spot
I had a terrible break out a few weeks ago and let me tell you, I was not happy when I found out that it was the foundation I've been using is the culprit. I love the feel of Revlon Nearly Naked foundation on my skin, but it clogged my pores. So of course, I stopped using the foundation and I try my best to deep clean with Warming Mineral Mask from The Body Shop and cleanse my skin more with the Philosophy's Purity. For the stubborn spots, I use Neutrogena's On-the-Spot, I've been using this product for years, and it helps calming down the stubborn spots. Whenever I wear makeup, I wear this Neutrogena Skinclearing foundation, it doesn't clog my pores and it feels amazing! I'm still in the process but my skin is looking a lot better now.

Do you have any suggestion for acne treatment?

My Magic Makeup Bag


1. eos lip balm / 2. gum / 3. granola bar / 4. hand cream / 5. band aid / 6. usb / 7. hair pins and ties / 8. compact mirror / 9. hand sanitizer / 10. tissue / 11. tide to-go / 12. pen / 13. perfume sample / 14. coin pouch / 15. power bank / 16. shopping bag
I know I did a bag essential post not too long ago, but I found a system that works like magic for me. I got this makeup bag at H&M a while ago as an impulse buy, I mean look at it, it's lacy and pretty, and I thought it could fit a lot of makeup when I travel. That was my justification of buying a random makeup bag, but hey, I don't regret buying it at all. In fact, look how handy it is now! I didn't realize that I actually have 16 items in it! I mean that's pretty amazing! I put everything I need no mater what, it's like a mini emergency bag, and this so-called makeup bag is always in my bag.

Why all 16 stuff you may ask? Well, I had too many moments where I don't have the thing I need when I need it the most — does that make sense? Let me give you an example, hmm, I was out and about and my phone decided to die (that doesn't happen a lot, but when it does it's not a good situation, I need google maps), I have my power bank to recharge my phone! I always have a granola bar with me because I get hungry at the most random time. 

Do you have a mini emergency bag?

Slouchy

stradivarius sweater & necklace // esprit jeans // june+julia shoes


I love seeing people wearing boyfriend jeans, I've been looking for the perfect one for month and months and I still can't find any. These jeans were my mum's and I think they're all I have for now. I'll probably alter them a tiny bit (and maybe rip them too, who knows). When I was putting this look together, all I can think about was "I really need to invest in one of those strappy heels." I'm not tall at all and I always wear heels when I have these jeans on, I need the extra height or these jeans will swallow me whole. 

How do you style your boyfriend jeans?
