I‘m in love with the summer season! It’s the season of wearing shorts~ and I bought two for this summer that I can’t wait to wear.
The pair in white is from Abercrombie & Fitch. I got them from a day trip to the States, and though they weren’t on sale, I’ve always wanted to buy a pair of white shorts. It was either this one or a white pair from True Religion but, I prefer A&F more to be honest.
The pair in teal is a favourite ~ from Guess. The store in Metrotown didn’t carry my size, so I resorted to buying online. Luckily, I got them for $2 cheaper from Guess’s website! Hey, any savings is still savings
When I went shopping with Selina the other day, we found these adorable Starfish Earrings at Crystal Mall! They’re simply adorable and suit the summer season perfectly, as I plan to spend many days lying in the sun on the beach! Hope the weather gets warmer~
Have any of you tried Lush’s Godiva shampoo bar? The jasmine scent is heavenly! It’s a bit expensive at $15CAD a pop, but the lingering jasmine scent fills up the bathroom. It lathers really well under a running shower. I really like it, but since my hair is dyed, I can’t really use it without conditioning afterward, which diffuses the scent a little.
Either way, I’m really glad I bought it to try! Lush’s products are always exotic. Here is an image:
Another product I’ve been wanting to write about is “REN” skincare products! Awesome name aside, I received a sample from a Sephora order, for their “Lactic Renewal Mask”. The scent is very citrus and milky, I fell in love using the small sample! I immediately ordered a bottle.
It’s not recommended for sensitive skin because it promotes the peeling off of dead skin cells to expose the new, beautiful skin underneath. So if you don’t have sensitive skin, like me, I suggest you give this product a try! I use it 1-2 times a week, whenever I shower it’s just really easy to leave it on~
I’m really looking forward to trying new products this 2012 Summer ~ hope it’s a great one
THANKS FOR VISITING～

Last weekend Michelle, a friend of Shan’s, came back to Vancouver from Texas. We went to the Richmond nightmarket (I went for the 3rd time~) and it was such a fun time. Because I brought my fluffy dog, Jacky, it was like we were celebrities! Everywhere we walked, heads turned and there were many comments like “So fluffy!” “So cute!” and “你的狗很漂亮！”
A girl even took a photo of my dog, and everyone from kids to adults wanted to pet him. Vancouver is such a friendly place. (⌒▽⌒)☆ It was remarkable how much attention he received, but he was nervous and a bit scared of all the loud noises and people.
We bought food and walked around, and I even saw my supervisors at the Fido booth. I stood around inside and sold a single iPhone case before heading off again with Michelle and Shan～
Another fun even that happened recently took place at home: my sister Kelsey, my brother Jenson, Shan and I dug out the good ol’ Monopoly board game and played it after dinner! It was really fun and unexpected playing this classic game again. Shan and I ended up losing so badly, haha! I was mooching off Kelsey and Shan’s sympathies to survive, but in the end my brother and sister were just too strong. I hope we can play a game together again soon, as a family.
Despite the fact that I said I would spend less in June, this month seems to be the month of my most heavy spending. I bought some lolita items, as well as some non-lolita items. Anyway, here are some recent buys:
BTSSB “Trick or Treat” JSK in pink. There’s nothing very Halloween-ish about this dress at all! It’s an older print, but when I bought it the seller had the tag still on. There’s no shirring, so I’m wondering if I should bring it to get tailored. A custom fit wouldn’t be too bad, if I like the dress enough!
Brand new, these socks from AP are quite thick! They’re really cute and I love the lace detailing near the top. (❁´◡`❁)*✲ﾟ*
I’m a bit unpleased that I bought a size ‘M’ in my Dream V heels. My feet are exactly 22.5CM, so I should technically be in an ‘S’ because small is 22CM-22.5, and medium starts at 23cm I believe. But they fit *okay*, just not as snug as I’d hoped. Oh well~ they’re still gorgeous. And they’re comfortable! I couldn’t believe how plush they feel, judging by the look I wasn’t expecting that.
This bag is really small. ;_; I wish it were bigger, but it’s only large enough to hold a phone and maybe a lipstick/key holder. I would maybe only use it when I have to walk my dog/run errands and want to free my hands up. It’s real cute though~ love this brand.
I have a lot of things on my wish list, mostly cute socks from AP and AP’s many other beautiful accessories. I don’t know! These are some of the items I couldn’t help adding to my collection.
!! Did you know American Apparel sells petticoats?! I had no idea until I stepped inside to buy some tights and saw this puffy baby hanging on the rack:
I almost want to buy it just to try it out, ehe.
I don’t know why I suddenly feel like expanding my closet.. (・_・ヾ I definitely need to save up more. Everyone says so!!!

I went shopping at Pacific Center’s Aritzia. I don’t know why I like to shop at that over-priced warehouse, but I was happy to pick up the light mint green blazer I had my eye on, along with a pair of cute buttoned shorts. I believe they are called “Talula Starboard Shorts with Anchor Buttons” on the official website.
These shorts aren’t a new item; they’ve been around for as long as I can remember. I know because a couple months back, I spotted them and resisted the urge to buy them. I somewhat regret buying them now, since they were original price at $50CAD, and also because they’re cheap (quality-wise!) as hell. Today at work, one of the anchor buttons actually popped right off!
Basically, I paid original price for a garment that fell apart on me the next day. I also happened to take the tags off, so there’s no chance of a return. Thank goodness I’m quite skilled with a needle and thread! I’ll be sewing this button back when I get home after another grueling day of work. (For some reason I work ten days in a row.. is that legal?)
This reminds me of the time where I bought a red Lush blazer and ended up having to sew back a seam on the shoulder area. That blazer cost me a hefty penny too, but I liked it too much to return it!
On another note, when I first bought these shorts I was unsure of them because I didn’t know if they would go well with the rest of my wardrobe. After a day of wearing them, they seem all right style-wise. It’s just the quality that really gets me!
Have you ever had this sort of set-back with a brand new piece of clothing? Had a disappointing experience with Aritzia? Leave a comment!
Thanks for visiting～♡
