Brandy Melville

Late November Early December Haul


 After the long hours working and wrapping up my first semester in college, I'm finally back on the blogosphere. If you have been a long time reader of my blog (or just know me really well,) you would know that I shop for every occasion. When I'm stressed, I go shopping. When I'm happy, I go shopping. When I'm bored, yes that's right, I go shopping. It's a bad habit, but it's therapeutic to me. 

When it was time for the infamous Black Friday, you can definitely bet that I took advantage of the sales. Despite the fact that most of my shopping occurred around the Black Friday weekend; I also went shopping early this month. 

This should be no surprise, but I picked up many items from Brandy Melville, Old Navy, and Forever 21. 


My Face of the Day


 Hi there! I haven't had the time to play around with my makeup in so long. 
Here's a quick look that I always do. 


Collective Miscellaneous Haul


Long time no blog post! I'm just been so caught up with school and assignments. 
Anyways, I've been shopping a lot lately and it's getting to the point where I blow off my paychecks so easily. My bank account starts crying whenever I buy something. It's a real bad habit, but I am a shopaholic so what can you expect right?

July & August Favourites


Summer is coming to an end and I've been trying a lot of new things. These are the main things that I have been enjoying within these two months. 

Let's talk about music. Music is and will always be part of my daily routine. I listen to music when I shower, right before I sleep, when I'm walking around the city, etcetera. 
The songs that I've been listening to on repeat:

  •  in July are My Way (Remix) by Fetty Wap featuring Drake, Research by Big Sean featuring Ariana Grande, and Omen by Disclosure featuring Sam Smith
  • in August are Hotline Bling by Drake and It G Ma by Keith Ape.

My favourite things to gobble up are french fries and bubble tea. 
My boyfriend and I always go get bubble tea and/or french fries. We go almost every week, and it's a real bad addiction.

Anime Revolution

AniRevo 2015


This is actually my very first time attending a convention of some sort. I has the opportunity to go the Anime Revolution with my boyfriend. We only went for one day, but we could've and should've went for all three days. 

I really wanted to cosplay as Kiki from Kiki's Delivery Service, but I really had no time to come up with a last minute costume. 
Here's a quick view of what I wore:

Headband: American Eagle
Long sleeve Button Down: H&M
Dress: American Apparel
Socks: Wego Japan
Shoes: Old Navy

At Anime Revolution, my boyfriend and I spent most of the time at the exhibitor hall. We never went to watch concerts, play games, or even see celebrities and get their autographs. 

Since I spent most of my time and money at vendors, here is my AniRevo haul!

Angstchild Phone Case Review


Disclaimer: I am not sponsored by Angstchild, nor am I affiliated with their company. I just really like what the brand has to offer, so I'm just sharing my thoughts. I hope that this will help you discover a new brand and will be a future reference when you purchase from Angstchild

I received a package about 2 weeks ago. It was the longest and most anticipated wait, so when I got a notice that my package arrived, I had to pick it up from the post office right away. I ordered this phone case from Angstchild about in early July, and it took almost the whole month for it to arrive. 


Updated Brow Routine


Today I'm going to talk about my current brow routine. 
I own a lot of brow products and I switch from time to time. When I'm feeling bold I gravitate towards the Anastasia dip brow pomade. Sometimes I use pencil or eye shadow when I want to go for a light and completely "natural" look. Then there are times where I want to go light, so I use the eyebrow duo from ELF. 

These are my brows at its normal state; without filling them in. Now I understand that the hairs on my brows are thick and there's no need for me to fill them in. I actually have some "bald spots" near the ends of my brows and I fill it in that area especially to give a fuller look. 

Some days I tend to over pluck. But no fear, the magic of makeup can fix that problem. 

All in all, I fill my brows to complete them and make them, like I said, fuller.

A Little Warmth (Featuring It's Judy Time Palette)


 I haven't been wearing as much makeup as I used to. The weather where I live is so humid that I sweat my whole face off and there would really be no point in the effort of slapping on some makeup. 

Here's a really quick eye look (with really crappy pictures because I used my iPhone.)
I used the It's Judy Time palette from BH Cosmetics. Unfortunately this palette is sold out and it won't ever be restocked :( But I'm pretty sure that you can find one of eBay or Amazon.


Monochromatic, Eye See


 I haven't taken any pictures of my outfits in so long, so here's a really quick post of what I wore a few days ago!


Let the Good Times Roll LUSH Review


 I haven't been inside of the LUSH store in so long. I recently got paid, so I made that as an excuse to blow up my bank account. Ever since April (Jasmine Blu) posted about this face and body cleanser way back when, I really wanted to try it out myself.

The last time I went inside of LUSH was just to browse and I totally remember taking a whiff of this product. It smells super sweet.

Alexander Wang

Play it Cool, Just Slide By


Har-har, I thought that my title was pretty clever. Here's a quick post of 3 cool toned outfits that consist guessed it...Sliders. I hope that this inspires you to recreate outfits similar to these!


June Favourites


My list of favourites this month is really small. I haven't been consistently using new things for this month. Here are some things, items, memories, whatever whatchamacallit I've enjoyed this month.


Big Beauty Haul


Do I need all this makeup? No, not really. In my defense, collecting makeup is like having a stamp collection, or a rock collection. I've collectively purchased these during the month of June. (Or I may have gone overboard in a day or two...but still bought this month ;P)

 I went to MAC Cosmetics just because I heard that there were different scents in the FIX+ collection. Unfortunately, I didn't see any in stores, so I just got the regular FIX+. I love spritzing this on my eyeshadow brush that's loaded with product. For some reason the eye shadow is pigmented and it lasts longer! 

I have a habit of stopping by the drugstore just to see if any new Real Techniques brushes are out. I rave about these brushes and recommend it to anyone who owns makeup. 
My brush collection expanded, so I'll update you on my Real Techniques collection in a post!


Breakfast At Morika's


Just last night, I was invited to go over to one of my friend's house for her birthday party. 
The party was themed and all the guests had to wear blue or white. 
I thought that the whole event was Pinterest worthy and completely Instagrammable (even bloggable) so I had to share how cute the set up was.

Huge Brandy Melville Haul & More


I'm currently in the final exam season and all I've been doing to destress is shopping. It's a really bad habit/addiction, but I get a real good kick out of shopping. Other than stressing about finals, I shopped a lot as a graduation present for myself.

American Apparel

Plain Warm Neutrals


Hi lovelies, I had a non-uniform day a while ago and I quickly pieced together a plain jane outfit. 
Nothing extravagant, nothing bright and colourful...Very minimalistic.

May's Love List


 Hello lovelies, I've purchased a lot throughout this whole month and a couple of them made the cut. To be honest, I don't keep close tabs on what to add to my favourites list. I have a daily routine and I just pick out whatever is new to it. 

Here are my fashion favourites of the month


My MAC Lipstick Collection


 Quick disclaimer: I've purchased these lipsticks collectively throughout the year. I didn't get all of these on the spot. I've finished a few lipsticks as well as lose some. Have you ever encountered that? You just put your lipstick in your purse, then *poof* all gone! I'm embarrassed to say that I've lost a few.

 I own 12 MAC lipsticks. It's a little excessive for a makeup beginner, but you can't argue when I say that it's good to have variety and many choices.

How I style sneakers

The whole "athletic" trend has been going on for quite awhile, so here's a quick post on how I would style different sneakers. Click the picture for more details on the items!

Laid-Back Boyfriend Jeans


If you follow me on Instagram, you've already seen this little outfit I quickly put together. 
The weather is really strange where I live in - it hailed just a few days ago and now the summer sun is peaking through. 


April Favourites


Hi all! I haven't done a monthly favourites post since February, so I thought that I should share what I've been loving for last month. I apologize for the delay (and lack) of posts. 

First of all, I can't believe that it's almost halfway through the year! I'm literally on the edge of my seat eager for Summer to come by. Lately I've been so swamped by school and work to the point where I haven't sat down to thoroughly think and write out a blog post (I guess that has always been my excuse, but seriously, it's true.) 

Okay enough of how I've been doing and why I haven't been posting. Here are the core things that I've been loving for the month of April.


Superstar II


Hi loveliesI have been swamped over by school - just a bunch of assessments and projects, I  haven't gotten the time to sit and make a post for my blog. Here's a short and sweet post of a recent outfit I put together. 
(I go to a high school that requires a uniform, but since I'm a senior, we get to have "dress down days".) 

One of the major things I recently purchased were the Adidas Superstars II. I have been wanting them for the longest time and I finally got around to buying them. It's such a good classic staple shoe to have in any wardrobe. 


Recent Purchases


Here are all the things I've bought collectively over the month of March.

 I really wanted to get my hands on the It's Judy Time palette because it's been sold out at Bhcosmetics for a long time now. I am so glad that I saw someone selling theirs. 

 The colours are absolutely beautiful and pigmented. I especially love the eyeshadows on the top row. 
Fun fact, I actually met the YouTuber, ItsJudysLife and I'm in her vlog which is awesome. 

 One of my friends was selling her Kat Von D Lolita Everlasting liquid lipstick to me and of course I had to get it. It was sold out at every single Sephora in my area, so I was surprised that she got her hands on them. 


Pop of Light Blue


 Here's a quick outfit that I put together. I was feeling bit edgy by incorporating a few chromatic pieces to my outfit, but I added a light denim vest for a pop of colour.   


February Favourites


February flew by really fast. Here are a few of things that I have been enjoying last month. Most of these things were purchased during my stay in Japan. If you would like me to do a little summary of my Japan trip in another post, let me know! 

 I brought this lipstick to Japan and I've been wearing it non-stop. It's a beautiful neutral and perfect for every day wear. This lipstick is from MAC and it's called Velvet Teddy. 

 When I was in Kyoto, I broke the bank at Etude House. This really cute Panda hand cream is one of the things I bought. It has a subtle peach scent, and it is very fruity. This hand cream moisturizes my hands and locks it in, making my hands soft all day. 

 My favourite snacks for February are Ramune candy, Matcha KitKats, and Konpeito. These are way too addicting, I'm not going to lie. 


Long Time No Bath


I'm going to talk about a bath bomb from LUSH called Twilight.

Twilight has lavender oil which is soothing ad calming. I had a very therapeutic bath in the evening because I had many tests after tests.  

The lavender and tonka in this bath bomb helps fight insomnia and soothe the stress.
I completely agree because once I stepped into the bath water and inhaled deeply, I felt relaxed. 

The water turns pink and then into a deep purple which is to resemble the night sky. There are also little flecks of glitter. 

The Twilight bath bomb is great to use for a night bath right before bed. 

With love, Kathleen


January Favourites


This month is passing by quickly. Here are a bunch of things that I have been enjoying this month.

 I was gifted this body cream from Bath and Body Works and it smells so fruity! I love love love fruity scents over floral-y ones. 
Speaking of Bath and Body works, I got this hand sanitizer and the smell is so pleasant. 
My friend bought Dark Angels from LUSH and it is now my holy grail. If you want me to do a review and talk about the product in more detail, I would be more than happy to. 
I recently wet out to Sephora and bought the NARS creamy concealer and the Too Faced Better than Sex mascara. I rave about this mascara because it gives me the most natural yet volumized lashes.
For my 18th birthday party, I got my makeup done at MAC and I bought a few of the products they used on me, but the one that I've been using is the Skin finish powder. 
I've also been loving a matte lipstick from MAC called Velvet Teddy. I recommend it if you want a good everyday lip since it's neutral. 

My favourite movies of the month are
 Penguins of Madagascar 
and The Book of Life. 

Lastly, my favourite food/drink would have to be Starbucks. I have a bunch of Starbucks gifts cards loaded on my account, so I'm hoping to reach Gold card soon! I love the paninis and a new hot drink fave is a Vanilla bean latte. It tastes exactly like a Vanilla bean frappucchino, but warm and with espresso.

With Love, Kathleen
