CATMAS MEOW MEOW MEOW



















Inner Shirt- Bershka// Outer Shirt- H&M// Jeans- Abercrombie & Fitch

Clearly I don't edit very well, nor do I do the whole taking photos myself thing very well. But I want you to know that I tried really hard. Maybe not with the editing, but I tried somewhat hard.
This was my outfit for Christmas at home with the fam. Not very special, I must admit.
I very much like the inner shirt, outer shirt trend that comes along during fall/winter. Another layer for warmth and I am so into anything that keeps me warm and doesn't make me a snowman. Sidestep: I really hate it when foreigners can wear nothing and I look like a snowman.
I like basically all things leather/fake leather. The leather shoulder pads mini trend was a happy time for me. Honestly not sure if that trend is still up there or not, but I mean leather.
Hope you all had a wonderful and fun Christmas! If you don't have cats, I hope you got one for Christmas.

TAI O-SO-COLD











Shirt- Pull & Bear// Inner Jacket (you probably can't see it)- Abercrombie & Fitch// Outer Jacket- Forever 21// Jeans- Bershka// Shoes- Pull & Bear// Bow- Forever 21

Christmas holidays and my family are here so we went to Tai O!
For people who don't live in Hong Kong/China, you probably have no idea where or what this is. But essentially it is on the far west side of Lantau Island, where everything is still quite traditional, stilt houses being the most popular attraction (photos 1 and 3).
Brief introduction done with. I thought it was going to be semi-warm that day, nope. I wore three thin layers hoping that it was going to be enough. Nope. The difference between the cold everywhere else and the cold here in Hong Kong is that our cold is the wind. Does that make sense? It is because of the wind, that's why it's cold. Moving on.
Still one of my favourite jackets (see jacket story here), but sadly not warm enough. I'm also really into crazy pants, or rather, unique pants? But I am also getting chubbier by the day (plus Christmas, wowowow) and my hips are not getting any smaller. So, many of my pants/jeans are getting ridiculously tight, aka these pair of neon orange jeans. I still love them, they are just SO tight. 

Christmas post coming up soon. In the mean time, check out my instagram for almost-daily updates!

Ice Ice Baby

It's one of those days,
Where everything's the same,
Everything the same,
But with icy cold hands enclosing me.

I don't look out through warm, blood-filled eyes,
I look out through ice cubes of bitter hatred.
What is warmth? I cry.
Warmth is the sun that I will never feel.

Where is the sun?
I want the sun!
Melt away the ice of darkness,
Bring me the beauty, and only the beauty.

We Cannot Save This World

It's kind of sad,
How our world has become this ball of expectations and stereotypes.

It's kind of sad,
How our world is full of war and poverty.

It's kind of sad,
How our world is so polluted.

It's kind of sad,
Because people can't grasp that everyone is unique.

It's kind of sad,
Because we have the filthy rich and the dirt poor, the unnecessary wars.

It's kind of sad,
Because we pollute and contaminate and hurt this beautiful earth, and people hardly notice.

It's kind of sad,
Because we are the new generation of technology and media, yet we cannot save this world.

Stop Revolving

The earth revolves the sun does not,
In a daze, I am caught.
I keep revolving, revolving, revolving,
Around him is never solving.

Stop it, you can't stop.
You are just a prop.
You are unimportant,
It is he that is constant.

Wake up! I say,
Stop revolving, I pray!
Look at this world,
It is all blurred,
Because you never opened your eyes to see.

Autumn

The summer's gone,
And the autumn breeze,
Played with my hair,
And did as it pleased.

The chilly morning air,
A slap in the face,
Shiver and shudder,
Weather with such grace.

Red crisp leaves,
Lay on the floor,
The satisfying crunch,
As you step on many more.

It's time I say,
For the fuzzy blankets,
Bundle yourself up,
And forget the regrets.

ILLUMINATOR





Top- Forever 21// Skirt- Brandy Melville

Much stripes, very reveal.
Taken by the one and only BCHK <3
This top is not exactly my favourite top because it is so, so short and is not that comfortable... Stoopid me and my impulse buys. It's not as short as my topshop crop top though.
It was very cold today so this outfit probably would not have been warm. But if you live somewhere.. warmer, but getting cold, then this should be good. I don't like crop tops that are too short because when you raise your arms your boobies probably show.
This skirt is a nice skirt. Super comfy unlike my top. I've probably said this before, but Brandy Melville is severely overpriced and the first and last time I went there I tried to buy things that were sort of worth buying. This was sort of worth buying because the material is soft and stretchy. Not shopping there again though, unless it's something I REALLY want. Sorry.
I didn't actually realise that both my top and skirt were stripes. Horizontal stripes make you look skinnier! That's what my mom tells me. I don't know if it's true or not. You tell me from these photos?


I'm currently wearing my giraffe onesie because I am extremely vulnerable to cold and I am very cold at the moment.

WHY ARE YOU SO GREEN?






Top- Gap// Shorts- Primark// Shoes- H&M//Socks- IT

Taken by the one and only BCHK.
If you're thinking, WHY ARE YOU SO GREEN?, you've come to the right post.
Sometimes I like to pick a random colour and wear everything in that colour scheme. No particular reason, just because I feel like it. But if it's because it's time, then i'll wear.... another colour. Cold weather is HERE. (that's not a hyperlink) It is time to bust out the sweaters and jackets. I got my green stripey shirt from Gap last year and it's comfy and warm but thin! So iz very good. Next are my socks which I showed in my favourites post before. They are dinosaurs and are so cute, especially the yellow spine. (is it called spine?)
There were lots of funny photos but Brian didn't post them (shame shame).
I'm special, you're special, we're all special.

LEATHER BE LIGHT








Top- Topshop// Skirt- Zara// Jacket- Forever 21

Taken by the one and only BCHK. This series of photos is my favourite as well as Brian's!
(while shooting the epiphany was it was Rumi Neely-esque. "DON'T TOUCH YOUR HAIR.")
I bought this jacket start of summer. Wanna hear the story? Here's the story: I bought it in HK when summer holidays started and it was too warm to wear so I brought it on holiday. And then left it in the hotel in Cuenca... When I got to London, my mama and I went to the F21 there and got a new one because I really liked it. #dedicated Bottom line, I've been wearing it a lot because it's purdy and it's not stiff which means it is comfy, to a certain extent.
Here's another story to my top: Went to Topshop and thought this was a nice crop top. Bought it. Didn't realise it literally ONLY covered my boobs. I don't wear this often but when I do I wear it with something super high-waisted or else I feel to exposed.
My skirt is new! It's the faux leather sort of material which I love and if you look closely in the photos you can see that it's sort of shredded. I didn't think much of it at first and didn't think of getting it but my mom was like !!!!!!!GET!!!!!!!! so I got it. I likey though.
It's getting colder now so this probably isn't the most appropriate outfit but if you're not afraid of the cold, bare away!
Hong Kong is home.
