Coming Soon

Okay, I’m procrastinating now…. So going to pay for this tomorrow.

Bought some stuff lately. Will make a post about that tomorrow.

My room is finally tidy and I love it <3. It's still as hot as a sauna though to the point where I'm wishing snowpocalypse will hit Singapore for just 1 week.

I am procrastinating. Welcome to Mid-terms Week



Okay, so I went on a shopping spree yesterday and surprisingly I bought make-up! Anyone who knows me know that I don’t wear make up ūüėõ However, lately I’ve been hearing a lot about you know, how as a girl I should know the basics of wearing make-up and I think this is kinda true. I don’t think it is about being a girl, I think it is about making yourself presentable. So I tried it out and it turns out to be quite fun! I think I will have much fun experimenting with it ūüôā

So without further ado, these are what I bought yesterday:

Topshop Heart Tights

(not as nice as I thought it would be but I think it will look nice with my boots)

Forever 21 Red Anchor necklace

Make up!

Mac make-up

ZA Foundation

Brushes kit from Watson

Close ups:

Lipstick -Equality (Lustre)

Lipgloss – C-Thru

Eyeshadow РBrulé (Left) and Soba (Right)

These are all from the All Ages, All Races, All Sexes collection. I mostly bought neutral and beige-y colours because I think those are easier to mix and match and I prefer my make up to be natural looking anyway. However, I’m also tempted to try some colours (blue maybe) for my eye-shadow. Haha, but not now, probable in 3 months or so. I just want to get the hang of the basics first!

So here’s my entire make-up collection

Not much compared to others but it’s good enough for now ūüôā Oh and I apologise for the low quality pictures, my phone’s camera sucks.

I’m a PC….and proud of it

Okay, I was never one to join into the whole Mac vs PC thingy (after all, My laptop run on Windows and I own an iPod Touch, which I love) but I discovered something that cause me to love windows. Why? Behold

P.S. Click pic for larger image

This is how my desktop looks like now! In the second pic, the bar only appear if my mouse is at the bottom of the screen. The programme is called Rocketdock. As for the clocks, calendars,etc apps, it’s from Rainmeter. So basically you download the programme, after which you can utilise the various skins to personalise your desktop. I’m not explaining it very well here but you should read their ‘Documentation’ page. The programme is really user-friendly and there are so much skins out there that you can make your desktop completely awesome instead of just the regular old wallpaper and shortcuts. Oh, and as far as I know, both programmes work only in Windows. Yup.

I also bought these cute little speakers today.

They are sooo awesome. Firstly, they are only $20 (bought them at my school’s IT store). Next, they are very portable because of the magnets, as the speakers can stick together and that’s how you can safe space in case you need to bring them around during your travels (which I probably will). Plus, they have a battery port (in addition to an usb port) so I don’t have to lug my laptop around to use these speakers and I can use it with my iTouch! And they are colourful and bright and that makes me happy ūüôā Yay ūüôā

Haha, I feel like such a geek now talking all these tech stuff, but you gotta admit, they are awesome right?
