Holographic Shoes

I really want some holographic shoes. Like, now. Like, right now. But they are so hard to find!

Baggu Bags

I've known about Baggu bags for a while now and have always found them adorable. Multiples in a range of colours stop me in my tracks okay? I'm weak like that lol. Anyway, visited their website recently and they have a lot more products than the original reusable Baggu bag now. The leathers and neon especially catch my interest. I wonder if any Baggu bags are stocked anywhere in Toronto so I can physically check them out.

Sweet as Jelly Beans!

I absolutely LOVE jelly beans. It's so unhealthy, it's just sugar with some flavours added to it! But omg, it's sooo good! I could eat them all day. Just keep popping them in my mouth one after the other lol. I especially like the pink coloured ones which usually are berry flavours. One time I found strawberry cheesecake flavoured jelly beans and I was simply blown away. At that moment I felt there was nothing else in this world that could taste that good lol. Unfortunately I can't find it anymore in Toronto :(

This iPhone jelly beans cover is so adorable! And guess what? Totally guilt free since I'm not ingesting any sugary jelly beans (unless one day I "accidentally" start chewing on my phone cover, then you can charge me as guilty lol.. for phone eating :D).

Spiked Necklaces

I'm kind of obsessing over spiked jewellery at the moment. Or maybe they are called studded jewellery? It all started when I discovered designer Mawi Keivom's pieces. They are all
so gorgeous! They have a badass feel to them but at the same time they have a classic girly girl vibe. The sparkly crystals and hanging studs do it for me. I can stare at them all day..

H&M Conscious 2013

Being an H&M fan, I always look forward to their updates every season. I've quite like the Conscious Collection they come out with every year too. I sometimes find that a lot of really nice looking stuff is offered at exceptionally low prices for the Collection too, which seriously rocks since it's killing two (or more) birds with one stone. I get to be eco, not blow my budget and wear pretty things :D

This year's spring Conscious Collection comes out on March 25th. I must say a lot of the stuff is just not appealing to me this time. I liked the Garden Collection and the White Collection the most. But still I think I'll be picking up these items from this year's collection.

Red Cables

I know this winter is almost over (yay!) but I'm craving to get a bright red cable knit sweater. Maybe I'll snap one up on sale if I find one (are there still winter stuff sales going on at this time of year?). I could wear it next winter (dread.. it's okay, it's too far away to think about now :D).

J.W. Anderson x Topshop

J.W. Anderson x Topshop collection releases this week at the Queen St. location in Toronto. While the collection is a bit out of price range for me, I may just stop by the store to touch and stare (and maybe impulse buy if my heart screams louder and my brain can't send stop messages to the hand reaching for credit card in time). Here's my picks from the collection:

Tattoo Tights

This might be old stuff for most people but I'm in looove with the look of tattoo tights! They are so brilliant for so many reasons. First, I don't really like how my bare legs look, they are.. very imperfect. With these I can sport the bare legs look (in warmer weather.. ah spring, plz come sooner..) but still have a bit of cover up. Second, I can't get tattoos, I mean, I can, but my fear of needles won't let me. I forgo major medical tests for my phobia, there is no way I would willingly sit through a decorative pain session. Third, I have major commitment issues (in several aspects of my life, sigh..), I'd definitely get bored of the permanent accessory (or maybe not, the reminder of pain may make me cringe every time I think about it, shudder). So these are so perfect for me. These Harajuku girls wear them so pretty.

I wish Totoro was my neighbour..

I don't care if I'm in my mid-twenties, I refuse to grow up. One day this bed shall be mine.. and according to the measurements I fit so ha! In your face, age!

Pink Doctor

I have a pair of tartan Doc Martens and they have been a big help in Toronto's snowy weather lately (remember the day it snow stormed? Remember the day Lady Gaga's concert was? Guess what, they were both on the same day! And guess what I did? I walked down the street in knee-deep snow, stood at the bus stop for 30 mins where there was also knee-deep snow, and went downtown to the concert, which took me a grand total of 3 hours due to several delays and cancellations of services. Mum said I was crazy, but I can't just waste $110 okay! Concert was awesome. End of in-bracket story).

So I have been really appreciating my docs and looking at other awesome docs out there. Their spring line is up. These caught my eye..

Japanese wigs

It's a sad truth but I'm suffering from major hairloss. I have for a while now. It's been a struggle for around 5 years. Thing is, I'm too young to be balding! I'm not even 30 yet (not that you should bald at 30 either). It makes me so sad to have 70% less hair than what I had when I was a teenager.

Another sad truth that I am trying to accept is that, this is going to continue and I'm most likely never getting my hair back again. At least not its former glory. I used to have really thick hair, to the point that hair stylist would struggle cutting it and it would literally take hours, but now it takes a mere half hour to cut and style.

Enough sadfest! Now being not so old, and looking even younger (I'm told so anyway), I still want to channel some of the trendy haircuts out there. I read (uh.. flip through) Japanese magazines a lot and the gyaru hairstyles fascinate me! Unfortunately I don't have the hair for them anymore but no worries, wigs to the rescue!

There's quite a few brands out there. The ones I've discovered are Loves Wig and Prisila. The wigs look beautiful and are very current with their styles. And there's lots and lots of options available! And so many colours to choose from. I'm not too into the blonde and lighter shades as I don't think they'd match my skin tone so I'm leaning towards the darker shades, but even so, lots to choose from, it's mind bloggling and very exciting!

Here's a few of my favourites. I've also started a board on Pinterest for wigs so take a look there too!

If I could hold a furnace all the time, I would...

This Fall and Winter, I want to be warm and cozy. All over warm and cozy. These velvet slippers by Stubb & Wootton fit the description (not the bill though...). These leopard print ones by Lolu also look cozy and they have tassels. Tassels always make things more interesting (and unfortunately, these also doesn't fit the bill, my bill for the matter).

The fear of dying

I absolutely love these shoes by Jeffrey Campbell. Uh, their look that is. I fear for my life, and my teeth (for some reason, I imagine myself falling head first when wearing heels and my teeth cracking on the pavement, oh shudder...), and hence, I probably won't ever bother with these. I do like to look at them though. Maybe this goes in my list of 'things I shall buy but not use but I'll own them because I simply can't resist them'.

Keeping up appearances

Lately, I feel this need to check my face out in the mirror a lot. I didn't do this before, but now I just need to see if my mustache has reappeared since my morning shave or not. Okay no, I don't grow hair at the speed of, uh, grass? But I do need to check if my concealer is in place, you know, just in case it migrated elsewhere from my mustache area. I have a mustache... Anyway, I don't like carrying too many things with me, especially when I'm working and can't lug my bag around with me. The only thing I carry with me would be my cell phone (which I didn't before either but people have been complaining about not reaching me so I've started to carry my phone, and now no one bothers looking for me). I had this urge to super glue a mirror to it, but I don't want to cause permanent damage to the thing that is pretty much the love of my life. So I Googled and voila, I came across these cases with mirrors on them, and other bling-tastic things. I like bling. These cases have a little too much bling on them, but they'll do, for now, since checking my reflection is just too important.

Looks and character, everything matters

I think I listen to music for about 70% of my day. The other 30% would be when I'm asleep and when I talk to people (does that give you an idea of how many conversations I have per day? Did I just give myself away to be a loner?). So I listen to music when I'm on a computer. I'm listening to music when I work (lenient work environment FTW, but I do want a better job). I listen to music to avoid people. When I eat, go to the bathroom. Pretty much anytime and everywhere.

I also appreciate nice-looking ear-phones. I liked the Gaga ones, but I don't really take care of my things, so I've ripped the wires of those within a few months (despite the rubberized flat wire tech thingy). I've had a couple more pretty ear-phones after that, they were either bad sounding (I REALLY care about sound quality, like, REALLY, but I don't like paying more than $50 for them), or bad construction. If only the following ear-phones (click on pic to go to eBay listing) came with nice sound quality (deep basses I like) along with their cute looks, I'd buy them all. But they don't so its a waste of hard-earned moolah. Ah, these characteristics are so comparable to all the men I've met so far...

Ctrl Paste

These adhesive eyeliner patch things by Dior intrigue me. Make-up isn't really my thing. Even if I try to make it my thing it doesn't happen and I've given up hope. I can't really put on eyeliner either (yes, its true, its supposedly a basic thing, and I can't frikkin' do it *sad face*). I do put on concealer, but that's just so I don't scare people with my zombie face. So when I saw these in my Sephora e-newsletter (is that what it's called?), I was moderately interested in trying them out. Or atleast I'll wonder about how they might look on my eyes. Since they cost $59, I'll leave it to my imagination for now, to visualize my eyes with these adhesive eyeliner things. And ofcourse I'll stalk beauty blogs in hopes that one of them will try it out and put up pictures online. Then I'll proceed to live my life through them...

No straps

I know clutches are the statement making thing now, although I'm not quite sure what the statement is actually. I honestly don't really understand the clutch. It's so tiny. It doesn't fit anything. I suppose it's only meant for parties where you aren't supposed to carry your entire life with you but a lighter chicer version of it. But it's the size that throws me off. It's so frickin' small. My wallet is bigger than some of the clutches I've seen, and I absolutely need all the contents of my wallet wherever I go. Also, what's the difference between a clutch and a smaller bag with a strap attached to it to go over your shoulders? They're both small and fit nothing. And a wristlet? Is that just a clutch small bag thingy with a loopy thing attached to it. Its still small. The clutch does not fit my lifestyle and I cannot seem to accept it, even though its been so long since its, uh, popularized. So with this many complaints against the bag small, I've decided to never invest in one as it will simply sit there unused in my closet.

But all of this does not explain my desire for this particular handbag. Its essentially still a clutch, where there is no strap to dangle the bag from my arms, so I'd have to 'clutch' the bag in my palms in order to carry it around. The difference is, its bigger at 24 by 36 cm. So it does fit my life, and my wallet. Its still a clutch, but one that fits my life. Or its a fancy and expensive file folder, whichever way you want to see it. I like it either way.

Brrrrr... ffrrrr... uuurrrr.... crrrr.... kkkkrrr....

I hate it when the whether changes suddenly. Just last Saturday it was sweltering hot. It was hot to the point of humidity, hot to the point of irritation, hot to the point of miserability (is this a word?). It was so hot, I went stupid, I was drunk (no I wasn't really), I felt a weird high that I had never felt before (this I did). All in all, it was hot.

And now it's fucking freezing! Everything is so dry. There's not a drop of moisture in the air. The wind is howling (okay, I'm not really sure of this as I haven't stepped out for the past 4 days, but it sure feels like it). My body is shivering. My hands are numbing. My spine is hurting. Or maybe I'm just still for too long.

Its so coooooooold. And I'm soooo looooonelyyyyyy. Come huuuuug meeee. My sweeet heaaaaaart.

Sorry, I don't knw what happened there. I started singing suddenly. My subconcious must think I'm desperate (in many ways), it made me act without the acknowledgement of my concious. If only it would do it more often when I'm outside my room rather than inside...

For now I shall wish for these Canada mittens to keep my near frostbitten fingers warm.

Dual Meanings

Now despite what I post here, I'm actually a very boring person. I don't wear star necklaces, gothic lolita outfits, or police man hats. I don't even wear a dress on a regular basis. So whatever I post here is all just what I wish I could be wearing. In truth, I'm just a t-shirt and jeans person. Or a some sort of top so I'm not just wearing a bra and pants so my butt isn't out for the world to see kinda person. This isn't because I'm lazy. Okay, its partly because I'm lazy. But its mostly because... actually I don't know, I should be able to dress how I want to dress regardless of the environment I live in and what life demands out of me. Not mad crazy braving the cold in -43 degree celcius wearing a bikini dressing, or showing up in the same attire in a church dressing, but dress more freely and worry less about life.

Well, right now I want to wear this Batman t-shirt. I don't particularly like or care for Batman, but I do find the design very intriguing. You see, it's a bat, sure, but it could also be teeth! Oohh...

A world where the sky is blue, the grass is green, and the hair is purple

I'm going to ahead and tell you that I'm kinda of an anime geek. I watch a lot of anime. I've been doing so for the past... forever, and I don't see signs of stopping soon so I guess I'll continue watching them. If you're familiar with anime, you'll know that sometimes, actually, a lot of times, the anime characters don't sport, uh, colour of hair that occur naturally, as in reality naturally, the world we live in naturally, an existence that is not two-dimensional and completely non-fictional naturally, human beings don't have ___ colour of hair from birth and said colour is not embedded in their genes naturally. I hope you get it, if you don't, you're beyond help.

Anyway. Since I can't grow such hair colour naturally as it doesn't exist in the human gene pool, and I'm not willing to bleach and fry my hair and get ___ hair colour, my options now would be to don on wigs of desired colour. I love the idea of colourful wigs actually. I can have whatever hair colour that I want and even achieve various hair styles. It's so easy and a lot of fun. I can be a different anime character each time. And then, one day, I'll completely believe I am a particular character, I will refuse to take my wig and costume off and be certain I genetically produce such hair colour. Then I'll fall in love with a bishounen (good looking guy) who is the student council president of our high school, but has many problems in his life, such as turning into a rat when hugging girls and being a part-time deathgod. Oh drama...

Anyway. Sorry for the ramble. On to le hair... (click on pic for respective eBay page)
