Me & Team Cray

i dont often post pix of me without makeup, so look at this as much as you want because i wont post another one anytime soon! hehehe i know i'm cheating with circle lens and its a profile view...but i just wanted to show my skin the morning after my weekly MBD mask session. =D

played with my nephew Jayden before heading out. this little guy grows so fast, he's almost 2 now. do you guys remember his newborn pic? omg when i compare, he looks nothing like his younger self. he's so cute and can't stop kissing me whenever i'm around. it's hard to take a pic of him now because he's just all over the place and can't stop moving. this is the best i could do.

we were desperately looking for a coffee table that day...we just walked in and out of so many furniture stores but still didn't find any that fit our taste and budget. T____T" still on the hunt! saw this full length mirror and thought i'd take a pic for OOTD. =] CM tunic (worn as a dress), French Connection black cami dress under, silver havaianas.

---------------------------------------

i find it so awesome how people can meet and connect through social media. Because we share the same interest (BB), me, CS and DT started tweeting almost every day. We started spazzing at a specific time, but as our relationship became more "serious" (lmao), our schedule became...non existant. Now, we spazz and talk about the most random stuff you could ever think of at any time of the day, even with our timezone diff. We used to be team cray but recently changed our crew name...ahemm...

Since CS lives in the same city as me, we already met a first time. When she came back from Cali, she brought me a Minnie Mouse stuffed toy =D This time, she said she ordered BB socks and bought an extra set for me!! ^^ We finally met a second time and got to talk a little more. Poor bf, who was just walking and listening to us blab about BB. lol took this pic before we went separate ways!! wish i could meet maknae too but she lives in Cali so...we'll meet in 2012 ;)
my freaking cute BigBang socks =D thank you agashiii ily
i bought these cute earrings at Aldo Acc and gave her a pair ^^v

---------------------------------------


this pic makes me wanna go on vacay so bad!!!
that night, we went to eat at one of our fave terrasse in the old port.

i didnt buy anything at the sidewalk sale because it was collections from 10 years ago...instead we walked out the adidas originals store with these super cute sneakers. my bf knows i dont wear sneaks often but he still bought them for me because he saw how much i was drawn to them.

next day i went back to get this polka dotted firebird track jacket. WAY too cute.
and it's the jacket CL is wearing for their I Am the Best dance practice vid. =D

last week, i came back from work and ran to my mailbox to check if my BigShow dvd has arrived or not, turns out a small parcel from the states was waiting for me. i was so happy and giddy! i love receiving stuff in the mail!! it was from my little maknae. Her aunt from TW visited so she received a BUNCH of masks and skin products. me and agashi nagged her until she told us she'd send us some. hehehehe *trick* if you keep bugging, you shall get what you want!
writing this for the world to see that i'm old yet finishing up with a heart to make me feel less bad about my age. lol
her note to me =D

anyways, i love my team Crayyy so machieee =D can't wait for 2012!!!

Hair wise...

my hair is too long nowadays!! too long to tie in a ponytail (yes thats possible, when you tie your hair and the "tail" is just long and never ending, it looks awkward), too long to let loose. too weird to style. i dont know what to do with them anymore. I need to keep them long for my wedding. i always end up pulling them up in a ponytail and braid them. makes me look like an ajumma trying to stay young. T___T"

anyways, that pic up there was taken not too (too) long ago. me & Longie had to attend a wedding so i took that opportunity to try out a hairstyle i would want for my own wedding. it's tied half way, the top is pulled into a slight puff and the rest of the hair is lightly curled. my mom said this style suits me. i don't know yet, i'll try a few before i decide on the final look. what do you guys think?

Longie & me at the wedding



anyhoooo....here's a sneak peek of that hairstyle with my veil =D


BONUS:
since we're having chinese food for the reception, and the dishes will be placed on a lazy susan, i thought i had to cancel the idea of having a centerpiece. thinking about it twice, it looks much better with something in the middle. i went to the florist who did my friend, Aly's wedding and explained the situation to her. she said i can still have something, it just needs to be short so the guests can still see and interact with the person sitting opposite of them and small so the dishes could be displayed around it. i had originally planned to use peonies as my main flower, but unfortunately, they're off season in september. and even if the budget allowed, flying them in from Holland would be a waste as they will be tiny. Helen, my florist proposed a few different flowers and together, we tried to see which looked closest to the beautiful peony. i ended up choosing the esperanza rose, with lovely shades of ivory and pinkish tones at the tip of the petals. She will have to open them one by one for it to look similar-ish to my original pick. a few days later, i came back to see her as she let me know she prepared a sample for me. the centerpiece consisted of a square vase as base, with 2 esperanza roses in the middle of a cloud of hydrangeas. the piece was finished with pearls here and there and a pink organza bow. i was very happy with the result...so i guess the centerpiece up there is the one we're going to have at the reception!

Falling back...

for the last month, my hands were itching for shopping like crazy! maybe it was because YG didn't release any new merchandise, i've fallen (for a moment,) back into my old shopaholic ways. No worries guys, i did not go overboard and i got some pretty good deals too. :)

here are my fave purchases from the month of June:
M60 "Britpop"
omg i think this might be my favorite jacket of the moment. it might look slightly badass-ish, but paired with a frilly dress, it just looks perfect!!

rivets, eyelets, studs...i like!
M60 Nu Metal skinnies

Mackage "Bebe" in camel
my mother bought this jacket along with the next jackets for me & Amy to share. she said the Bebe looks better on me because its shorter than Oceana(yes, my lil sis is taller than me, *sadface*), so it should be mine and the other, to my sis..but we can switch it up. :) she picked these jackets out herself! i love me mama. ^^
Mackage "Oceana" in black with silver hardware

i bought the Mackage "Wolf" for Longie, he has lots of black leather jackets already, so i thought a grey one would look nice in his wardrobe.

another sample sale find! this lace coat is from a few seasons ago, but a gorgeous piece is still a gorgeous piece even if time goes by.



Bebe worn

Oceana worn

Van Cleef & Arpels Feerie perfume from Clarins sample sale!!
Rabito case from store in chinatown

(i named him Tabito, in honor of Tabiiii bb hehe)


this past weekend there was an extra 30% off merchendise on sale at CM for Canada Day, so i snatched these 2 pieces:

silk tunic
(SUPER TRANSPARENT, so i need to wear a tank dress under or it could also double as a swim cover-up too)

shorts that look like a skirt =]


we dropped by Rockie after brunch last Sunday and my sis bought me this La Senza bikini. on sale for dirt cheap! 6.99$ a piece plus more % off at the cash. niceee thank you sister!!

another chinatown find! cuteee teddy scarf! ^o^



a friend of mine went back to Japan for vacation and i asked him to look for these 2 albums for me. when he brought these back, my eyes lit up and i was as excited as a kid on christmas morning! thank you TL!!! (i was so excited when i asked him to get these that i totally forgot to ask for some magazines!! T___T)
