Title: City chic x OOTD

Bonjour guys, it's been weeks since i last posted so i apologise that i don't post on a weekly basis. However i thought of this in advance to make sure i post up a good outfit and post for you all!
So today it's Anna-Marie's birthday and we celebrated it by going over to Oxford Street and eat together at a Korean Restaurant called Arirang. It's been ages since we were all together in one place without school being in the way so it was a good chance to just bond with them. The theme of this outing was 'city chic' and it took me ages to match up something with this theme without getting cold.

City Chic OOTD

Batwing Top: Forever 21
White Jeggings: Primark
Low Wedged Heels: Clarks
Lion Necklace: Ebay
Black Necklace: Unknown
Snake Bracelet: Philippines

Trench Coat: Thrifted/H&M

Recently, i 'thrifted' this coat from a charity shop in Greenwhich and thought it was in such good condition that i didnt hesitate to buy it. For something below £10, it's very comfy and suited well with the outfit i had on today.

Title: BB Wonders

So after a month of waiting i finally got my order from Korea through Ebay.
I have been looking at tons of reviews for bb creams for the whole year since Nov last year. My first purchase bb cream was Missha's Perfect Cover BB Cream, since it was my first BB product i didn't know what my skin colour was and so i thought i'd go with the Shade No. 21 which was too light for me! I however was able to deal with it for the winter because it was only a shade lighter than me at the time so how i managed with it was to put a tanned shade of Macs finish powder giving me a clean finish, Missha's coverage was also not so great so i accompanied it with some concealer before the finishing powder. However who has time for that? I'd rather have one complete product with good coverage and is also my skin colour.

What is BB Cream? 

BB cream stands for blemish balmblemish basebeblesh balm.

 It is a cosmetic item sold mainly in East and Southeast Asia, promotes as an All-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturiser, primer, foundation and sunblock.
( I used Wiki for this definition btw *giggles*)

I spent more time researching for a really good Korean BB Cream and it all concluded to Etude House's Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit (or Cotton Fit, whether you'd want a matte finish)
So introducing to you, my favourite BB Cream:

Title: Hello Fashion!

So i apologise for not being able to post or blog any interesting stuff lately because im at the transition of the start of sixth form and so it's very important i am aware what will come for me with the subjects i chose.
However let's go to subject and talk about my recent fashion experience!
I had the opportunity to watch a fashion show yesterday, It was the F.A.D Fashion Futures program to present 20 finalists final garments and designs. I was able to attend such a remarkable experience because my friend Melissa was one of the 20 finalists! *round of applause* Check her blog out guys, if you havent!

With her hard work into giving up hours of her saturdays and time to work through and with the projects she managed to be lucky enough to be the chosen 20 out of 100 people in london.
Sadly, she did not manage to make win or so but that definitely does not stop me from being honestly proud of her :')
With 20 contestants they had around 6/7 months to work with the F.A.D team and build up this project, with research and determination, they put all their effort of preparation into work within 5 days of making the garment they had in mind. ladidaaaa, i'm talking to detailed and formal here but here come le photos ~
I can't post everything so apologies.

Title: Metallic Hollow Rose Flower Headband/Hairband

And so my addiction on Ebay is growing ever so slightly, buying hair accessories or beauty products such as the asian BB creams etc. However here i present to you a review on my recent bought product! A Hair accessory.

Its a really suitable headband for updo's like a high bun or ponytail. It's comfortable and spices up the look you have. Just accompany your style of clothing with hair accessories so you look classy from head to toe. I found this item on ebay and thought it was worth the buy and wait even though its all the way from hong kong! Plus to the UK buyers out there, you dont expect finding something as cute as this in a 99p store or poundland right? Well this itself is a 99p item with free shipping! KACHING! it's a money saver and its totally worth it.
