why won't you let me love you.

I'm going to make this analogy and some people are going to eye roll at how dramatic I am (but let's face it, I was never the most subtle person when in writing) but here goes: makeup products are like the people passing through your life. There are the products that you get along with the first time round, there are the pests, there are the ones that you can't love no matter how hard you try, and possibly one of the most dire situations: the ones that won't let you love them no matter how much you want to.

rolling in the deep (of my bag)

Here's the thing, despite being someone that blogs about a ridiculous amount of makeup, I'm not a person to actually have the stuff on me. That said, I was looking for my bus pass the other day and with a sudden stop, half of my bag's contents were spilling all over the floor. It was a good thing that the bus was relatively empty and my ninja foot skills stopped the objects rolling to the bus driver in front. It wasn't until then did I realize that the amount of lip products that I was lugging around in my bag was ridiculous.

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.
