i've been going round and round, up and down...

my rule for home outfits - 3 "Cs" and an "S": comfortable, casual, simple and cute 

stripey blue tee ("fun fun!"), hair bun, freudian slip when attempting to write 'frustration' for contract law,  trying to look intelligent in my roommate's black nerd glasses 


You may have noticed I tend to update and post quite frequently. Very frequently, more than other fashion/ lifestyle bloggers out there who post every two-three days. So I would like to offer a little explanation as to why this is the case with my blog... the short answer: the MACBOOK.

I own a macbook pro and use it as my main source of entertainment. Photoshop has always been my hobby, even back when I owned Windows XP, but the change in operating system really made my love for photography, photo manipulation and editing more intense than ever. 

Now, photoshop runs faster, the screen's graphics are crystal clear, and since entering college, most of my time has been spent sitting in front of a screen, typing away, munching on food and checking the piles and piles of emails.


testing another home outfit - grey vintage woolen pullover, rolled upwards to give it a cropped look, sky blue denim shorts 

I use the convenient, in-built iphoto that the macbook pro comes with for most of my portraits, especially ones of the face. It is too easy to open it up,  click the little red button and snap a shot of myself in whatever state I'm in ( just-got-out-of-bed/ all-made-up/ procrastinating-but-in-denial/ just-plain-bored).

I'm in love with iphoto. I think it's one of the greatest webcams to use when taking photos for blogs and things, especially with yourself. It creates a nice, bubbly and warm feeling to my face. And I usually snap a photo of myself quite often just so I remember what I look like when I'm old and withering. Documenting my life is fun, I see it as a record of my daily/ weekly/ yearly changes. I try to take shots every day or every other day....

This means I get a lot of photos I can use to put up on this blog. I have so much choice in the photo-book... plus I get to practice photo manipulation and share with all you awesome readers!

    (to answer your question) Yes I have used heaps of clay masks, they are very good for deep cleansing but sometimes dry my skin out too much. I use to work for Lush, and I love their face masks they use clay in a lot of them.
