I keep on running, keep on running and nothing works..

Hey lovely people!

YAAAAY it's the holidays!! Well for me at least =) On friday I went to one of my engineering mates 21sts -yes it feels like I have been going to a 21st every weekend for the past month now! It was a lovely 21st with lots of warm fuzzies from the fambam and quite literally an hour and a half long speeches! I was rather slack and didn't get a picture of my outfit at all! So tear =( I just wore a blue silk dress with a drawstring waist and a nautical blazer and topped with ankle boots =)

Saturday was spent just shopping with one of my best mates Heather so I just kept the outfit uber simple (I'm also rather sick of my wardrobe, but too poor to buy new clothes? oh the problems of an unemployed student!) and just wore a loose baggy shirt, leggings and teamed with a black blazer. I decided to make the outfit a bit more interesting with a pretty multicoloured head wrap =) (again, sorry about my camwhoring with my outfits, as i've said, i always forget to take pictures of my outfits when i'm out xD)

Here's another one of me making heather take photos with me while she was driving. She did look at the camera a few times but then i think she got bored... and had to concentrate of her driving of course.. haha

On Sunday I went to brunch at the langham!! YAY! this had been on my wishlist for SUCH a long time but I never had the chance to go since I worked every Sunday! However after quitting my part time job I finally had the chance to go! It was really good and I was sooo full after I couldnt even had dinner that night! haha. Unfort I didn't really get many pictures of the food and whatnot cos I didn't want to look uber asian tourist. HOWEVER, next time I go, I will definitely take more pictures of the food and what not. PROMISE!! And hopefully this Saturday I will be going to high tea at the Stamford with my lovely friend Devika who has already featured in the blog. Photos will be taken! =)

In the meantime here are the miniscule amount of photos from the langham =)
Only managed one pic of the food which was like a hazelnut choc brownie thing and a choc lamington:

Me at the langham -yes i look rather cruddy but the scenery around me makes up for it =) Am wearing a beaded chiffon tunic belted at the waist to create a bit of shape, leggings and over the knee suede booties =)

and this is just a picture of the lobby of the langham -the grandeur of it doesn't really show up in the photo, but it is really quite beautiful =)

So with that being said, I'm currently still really sick! I have the worst cough ever and everytime I cough it sounds so demonic when I'm out people look at me weirdly haha. Hopefully my sickness leaves me soon and I'll be able to enjoy my holidays!!

Here's my face of the day today when I just went out to run some errands with my mum. Kept it uber natural and fresh looking. Is it me or does my hair look uber blonde in this photo?

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend =)

To Dye or not to Dye?

So everyone time I dye my hair my mum throws the biggest spaz at me. She tells me that the more I dye my hair, the more frequent it will fall out (and cos i have very thin, fine hair, she thinks i'll go bald! haha), which I mean fair enough, dying your hair is rather damaging, but its also fun and plain black hair bores me!

My hair is currently an exciting [and rather gross] concoction of browns, blondes and black regrowth. All in all, it's yuck! Was thinking of maybe dying my hair this colour -

Its another japanese brand but unfortunately I have NO IDEA where to buy it from! [oh why does living in nz suck!] its called Lucido in a milk jam colour. What an odd colour to call hair dye! makes it sound very unappealing! but the colour looks so pretty on the model!

So because of the whole living in new zealand situation i may just have to opt for palty again which I'm not complaining about! This time round I think i'll use two boxes and HOPEFULLY it'll get rid of my blonde highlights! Fingers crossed! Dunno what colour to choose tho! they all are soo pretty!

So one more day until midsemester break!! Holding out for that as this half semester has been pretty pretty crappy!! Got two tests back yesterday and was just absolutely shattered. Managed to fail one of them and barely pass the other! I knew I hadnt done amazing in them but didn't realise I had done that bad either! But just one more day and then I can regroup and do better the next half of the semester. -What doesn't kill you makes you stronger right? =) [**Cue stronger by Kanye West** yeah that's the only song I can think of with that kinda theme atm! Oh wait, Britney Spears -stronger! haha **starts singing**]

On a happier note, I finished reading The Carrie Diaries last weekend! For those of you who like sex and the city this will be a great read for you! It's quite the teen fiction read but give me anything with a soppy cute love story in it and I'll enjoy it! I'm a sucker for things like that xD

So I Hope everyone has had a better week so far than me and that their weekends are very exciting too!! This sunday I'm going to brunch at the langham so that should be a lovely affair and photos will come soon for that =)

Thanks for taking the time out to read my post =)

Rando Update =)

Hey pretty people! =) So these couple of weeks have been super hectic with millions of tests and my semester long project being a pain in the ass! This week tho I did go to one of my lovely friends 21st dinner so I wore my topshop hello captain coat which I'm still unsure what I think of! It's sailor meet japanese school girl. Thoughts? I also just kept it real casual and just wore a stripey top with a high waisted skirt. I know I have an uber bad habit of not really taking photos when I'm out with my friends so sorry that half the pics are just of me cam whoring in my bedroom! Anywhos i hope you like them anyways =)

This is me and my gorgeous bestest friend in the world Devika! Please note her AMAZING karen walker coat she is wearing! Fashionista that girl is! <3

alright, so the restaurant we went to was called iguacu and they served amazing food! I had the prawn risotto and Devika had the jalapeno chicken and tortilla salad [i only took photos of our food and noone elses!] -why is it whenever i look at peoples blogs they always have these amazing artsy photos of their food but whenever i try to do so i fail miserably! oh wells!

also, uploaded another video onto youtube for a braided hairdo! check it out on

so anywhos hope you all had a lovely weekend!

New Youtube Video!

Hello my lovelies =)

I have a large forehead and always have massive difficulty trying to find hairstyles that suit me without looking like a douchebag, so I decided to make a video about the hairstyles I like and hope that these help others with big foreheads too!

Check it out on:

So had another lovely 21st on friday night at the kingslander. May I say, sheesh, amazing food! I had the squid for an entree and a chicken and bacon burger as a main, and wow they give u soooo much! Here are just a few piccys of the food!

Hope you guys are having a fab weekend.

La fin.

oh ksubi's how i love you

My weekday mornings usually go like this:

6am -alarm goes off
6:09am -alarm goes off
6:18am -alarm goes off
6:27am -alarm goes off
finally get my ass outta bed (yes my snooze is in 9minute increments, I don't know why -sony ericsson phones are weird like that -or maybe I just don't know how to use my phone -tips anyone?)

so needless to say I'm not a morning person and my enthusiasm to get dressed in the freezing morning air is about as much as a blind person wants to play 'I Spy' (that's not much at all for all you kids that didnt have a childhood). This morning I was feeling less motivated than normal so opted for an uber safe and rather boring outfit. However, I do love my ksubi spray on jeans in raw rinse indigo and paid quite the bit for them even tho I got them on sale! Sorry the pic doesn't really show them in full length but I always forget to take photos when I'm out and about. I just paired them with a lace leotard and voila. Very very plain and simple [and boring!] outfit for the day.

Hope you all had a great day.

Japanese Dariya Palty Hair Dye Review - Caramel Brown

So I finally made a video about my experience with palty hair dye review! To check it out visit:

However, cos the lighting from my video was rather bad I have decided to put up some pictures on my blog so that you can see how my hair looked when I first dyed it =)

My hair nowadays isn't quite so light however cos most of the colour has been stripped from my hair so it looks more like this now:

What are your thoughts about palty? Have you tried it? What colour did you dye it?

Hope you guys had a great day today! I finally got the arvo off from doing design work with my design group so it was fab to just be able to sit down and study! Nerd, I know! But anywhos, Stay cute

We Gon' Light It Up Like It's Dynamite

So finally after much deliberation I have finally decided to start up a blog!

After lengthy contemplation and my problematic addiction to trademe i decided to get the topshop hello captain jacket which was overly raved about in america last year after the lovely alexa chung was seen wearing it(hey, new zealand is technically half a year behind cos of the ol' hemisphere thingy!) Maybe its cos i'm asian, but it seems to just make me look like a japanese school girl! how does alexa pull it off so amazingly!

It was also one of my friends 21st's in the weekend. I wore a one shouldered grecian style dress from dotti. Unfort I didn't manage to get any pics showing the dress so instead I will leave you with pictures of the cake and the shots from it =)
