pastel nails.

A quick post on some new nail polishes I received last week by 3 Concept Eyes, a South Korean cosmetics brand. I have only used the pink shade but I really love it! Perhaps you will see them in a future Manicure Monday. I'll be going on vacation soon, so posting might become less frequent - but I'll be sure to share a lot when I get back!

congrats, grads!

Last weekend was my sister Judy and also Jeff's graduation! Unfortunately I didn't get any good photos of Jeff's ceremony but I thought I'd share some from my sister's anyways. I'm so proud of both of them! 

Also, I'm not the shortest of my sisters - they were just both wearings heels that day!

buys from nyc.

I took a day trip to Manhattan yesterday with Jeff and my younger sister. We ate ramen in East Village, did some shopping in Soho, and hunted down LadurĂ©e in the Upper East Side!  Exhausting, but well worth it.  

1) & 2) The one and only Ladurée macarons - I had to have the Hello Kitty box of course!
3) Sneaker wedges from Topshop! I loved these so much I got them in a size and half too big because they didn't have my size.
4. My favorite Japanese fashion magazines!

california dreamin'

Jeff and I are officially going to Los Angeles next month for vacation! This has been a long-awaited and I think a well-deserved trip.  Jeff is graduating from this weekend and we haven't taken a proper vacation together ever since our school trip to China!  Which is funny since our four year anniversary will coincide with the vacation dates.  I'm super excited for the warm weather and great food.  We're planning on doing a lot of shopping and eating, so what are some places we must visit?

sleepy head.

What are your thoughts about the pajama trend? I think it's hard to pull off but two of my favorite bloggers, Rumi Neely and Columbine Smille, do it well. I personally though will continue wearing my sleepwear indoors though!

manicure monday.

I'm back with another manicure! This time I attempted a rainbow design. It didn't turn out as well as I had hoped, but practice makes perfect, right? I actually used six different colors but you can only really see about three or four in the photo...

I have been meaning to get a haircut for months now, but I never seem to get around to it.  My long hair is just a hassle to me - it takes too long to dry and always gets tangled when I sleep!  I am a very low-maintenace gal.  But there's so many more styling options with longer hair, and I am scared of getting a bad cut.  I have to remind myself that hair always grows back!
