I've been loving Korean music lately, and it's really getting to me because I can't stop listening to K-pop songs these days! I first got into Korean music because a friend who was into Korean things introduced their music to me on Youtube. I also took part in a university dance show and had to perform to several K-pop songs which eventually led to me being semi-obsessed with some of their catchiest, coolest tunes.
Apart from the music, another thing I love is watching Korean makeup videos. There are so many cool videos on Youtube that demonstrate how you can achieve a particular look of a particular Korean idol, usually in K-pop or Korean drama. They always look super cute! I'm always jealous of Korean idols because of their beauty, although some of them has had plastic surgery and I will never, ever get any form of surgery even though I'm far from perfect!
Thus, what more could I want when I saw that the Korean brand Missha was cutting down their stores in Hong Kong and were having massive sales everywhere? I went on a CRAZY Missha haul and brought so much makeup that I threw away all of my old drugstore products. Korean makeup is amazing as it works well on Asian skin, and also gives more coverage in a more natural way.
As you can see I've also been obsessed with Japanese Matcha foods… there are so many new shops in Hong Kong lately that sells matcha-themed desserts, and I've been going crazy with my best friend trying all these new and interesting desserts. I have to say, the matcha is delicious in Hong Kong! I'm not a foodie but I've always admired people who can take lovely pictures of food and not go crazy with wanting to eat it all when it first arrives!
I also got a shorter haircut, which was daunting because I haven't had short hair in years. Honestly, the last time I had hair this short was around 3 years ago, and it's really something for me. As a tall girl, I think longer hair looks better on me, but shorter hair makes me look younger somehow. I can't wait to grow it longer though…
I just don't want summer to end, because it's the most relaxing time of my year. I can go out and sleep as much as I want, and also meet new friends because everytime I go out I can meet new and interesting people. I've been accused of being a social butterfly, but in my heart I really like socialising and making new friends. Honestly, I think I'm an extrovert at heart!
Lastly, I've been trying to accept myself more by getting to know more people and spending more time with my friends. I guess I feel like a change because I've recently gotten out of a serious relationship and I've been moping around for a while now. I fell into depression for about a month, and I'm still not truly over him, because I think it's the first time I felt something for a person at all. I've relied on my best friends for emotional support and they have been absolutely lovely to me. I'm finally feeling better but I'm still quite sad at times. Moving on takes so much time, and it's a rather long and tedious process especially since you suddenly lost something you used to take for granted :(
What do you think of my boring life?
