a little NARS haul

NARS has always been one of those brands that everyone loves while I was standing on my toes, trying to get a glimpse of what the fuss was about. Being on a makeup buying low for the quarter of the year, I never thought that I would actually break and go hit up a makeup counter any time soon. But what can I say, it was warranted by the situation.

[the update] seven days, seven photos ed.2

The morning was spent running around half of Taipei, scrummaging together the last minute paperwork needed to file for my student visa. Thankfully, it all went well. And I was feeling particularly artistic that rainy evening to squat down at the side of the road and take this shot.

the summer every day essentials

Oh summer, I'm in a love/hate relationship with thee. On one hand, the sun is glorious. On the other, well, if you've spent summer in a big city in tropical Asia, you'll realize living in a sauna everyday isn't as romantic as it seems. I have a selection of products that will help me get through these unbearable days while looking like I've somewhat put in some effort.

[the wants] come into my closet please

I've been on a shopping dry for the past several months - beauty and fashion wise. I thought I was happy with my closet components, I thought I could keep clothes shopping to a minimum. But once upon an afternoon, my mum and I went to Zara and while I walked out without actually buying anything, I had racked up a mental 'please magically appear in my closet' list.

[the update] seven days, seven photos

It was a NARS kinda day. Rocking red lips on the streets in Taipei is definitely a surefire way to get people turning heads - the douche ones will try to pick you up while you just want to get your cup of coffee.
