Christmas Decorations And New iPhone Case

It's been awhile since my last update. I have been horribly sick with a cold which is why I haven't made any new blog post. I'm feeling a lot better now but I still haven't fully recovered 100% yet. Just 1.5 more day of work this week and I'll be on my 1 week of holiday break. I seriously thought I had 1.5 week of holiday off work because that's what my manager had told me but when I checked my work schedule, it turns out that I only have 1 week off. She lied to me! lol. 

I have so many things I want to blog about and things that I want to do during my 1 week of break. I don't even know if I'll ever get through to doing all of them but I guess I'll have to do what I can manage to get done. >_<

Since I'm still sick I don't really have the energy to make a quality worthy post on a good topic so here's some photos I took on my instagram awhile back. 

Christmas tree decoration at work! Everyone is so nice and friendly at my new workplace which is really nice except I feel extremely overwhelmed with the amount of work and information I need to know to do my job. X_X We also had a potluck on Monday last week which I think is what got me more sick because I was eating a lot of fatty junk food on top of having a fever. But I didn't want to not eat any of the food because then it'd look like I don't appreciate the food or I don't want to be a part of this "festive celebration" so I tried to eat what I could. 

Cute Mickey and Minnie mouse balloon decoration I spotted at a house near my neighbourhood. How cute is this scenario of Santa hanging on the rooftop, haha. 

And lastly a new iPhone cover case that I bought from ebay. I wanted something a bit more simple and classy looking. I think I might stop buying phone cases for my iPhone 4S because I'm thinking of getting the iPhone 5S in 2014. Thinking I should get more phone cover cases so that it can protect my phone screen from getting dirtied and scratched.

Winter Cardigans

I have been sooooo busy with life that I have no time for my blog anymore.

Recently started another new job last week because my current one on contract ended and I've been so overwhelmed with training that I'm so exhausted to do anything after I come home every night. I'm looking forward to have a nice long break for the x'mas holiday already!

We're heading into the month of December now and the weather is getting colder. This is when I'm glad to have my winter cardigans to help keep me warm because I don't really have a thick enough winter jacket so I usually end up wearing layers upon layers to keep myself warm. I bought these cardigans a few years back and I'm so glad that I did because they are truly a life saver during the cold winter we have here in Canada. I don't know how I will survive the cold Canadian winter without them. >__<

I got this all white cardigan from YesStyle. It's really thick (one of the thickest cardigans that I own) with rabbit furs so it's super warm! I wear it with another jacket over and it keeps warm when it's like -30 to -40 degree outside. Yes, it can get this cold in Canada where I live. This is why I dread winter so much and especially since I don't have good blood circulation so I tend to feel cold very easily! 

I also got this pink fleece cardigan from YesStyle. It's not as thick as the white one with rabbit furs but it's still good enough to keep me warm. I love how you can also wear this cardigan over a dress to stay warm and still look cute.

The last grey cardigan I got from Japan through nissen which is a website that sells clothing in Japan. It is not as thick as the white rabbit fur one but it's still warm to wear when it's -15 to -20 degree outside layered with a light jacket.   

Sorry I didn't take any pictures of me wearing the cardigans because I absolutely have no time due to my busy work life now so I did it the lazy convenient way of just taking pictures of the cardigans. The last pic is an old photo that I happen to find on my computer taken awhile back but I have a mug face so I covered it up with a heart, lol. 

What do you wear to keep warm during the winter? (If there is winter where you live)

Boobs Fat Problem

I've been contemplating for awhile whether if I should make this post private or public since it's kind of a personal topic. But then I thought maybe I could find help to resolve "boobs fat" issue that I have been very self-conscious about. And maybe some of my female readers can relate to how I feel or who possibly might have the same problem. I'm not so sure what this might pertain for my male readers though...if there are any lurking around my blog. Maybe it can enlighten you to know that girls can have such problems? 

So it never really occurred to me that I have a lot of "boobs fat" until in the recent 4-5 years when I started to develop a high interest in fashion and clothes. And I have never really paid much attention to my boobs size and taking proper care for them such as making sure that I'm wearing the right bra or how to make them more appealing and etc. I guess I was still too young at the time to care and I've always been a very conservative person. I wasn't into wearing sexy revealing clothes so there was never a need for me to care about how my boobs look. As long as I have a bra on that would cover up my boobies then there's no need to worry. Never would I have thought that because of my lack of care and interest in my my boobs have caused me now to have so much boobs fat that is sooooooo not appealing. Also nobody really told me how to properly wear a bra. My mom just gave me a bunch of bras to wear when I was about 13 or 14 and kind of left me to figure out things on my own.

I may appear to be a skinny person to my friends and most people I know and like most people, you'd assume skinny people would most likely have small boobs. Well, that's not really the case for me. I wouldn't say my boobs are big but I guess they're in the average size range? But honestly if I had a choice I would really wish they're a cup size smaller. I know this might sound crazy to some girls like who wouldn't want to have bigger boobs?!?! Not me! I've always found girls with small boobs much more attractive than girls who have really big boobs. Everyone has their own preferences. I'm just not a fan of big boobs.

Now on to the main point, so what exactly is my problem? Apparently I never knew how to properly wear a bra or what you should be doing when putting one on until I watched these Chinese movies and shows that talk about the importance of wearing a bra. The first rule is you should adjust your bra strap at the right length so that it's not too tight or too lose but just enough that you can fit about 1-2 fingers in between your bra strap from your shoulders. The second rule is after putting your bra on, you should slightly bend your body forward and place your hand in between your bra and grab all the meat from your back and slowly push it forward to the front so that it fills in the empty space between your bra and your boobs. You repeat doing this several times until you fill up the empty spaces of your bra so that it wraps around your boobs completely. By doing so you'll have a beautiful straight chest line underneath your arms with no fat/meat sticking out...which is exactly what I have because I never bothered to do this. I tried doing this a few times and have noticed a big difference, but when I do this it makes my boobs appear bigger with a cleavage and then I stop doing it because I don't want my boobs to be bigger than what they are now. I mean unless I'm wearing a bikini, then yes big boobs would look nice and sexy. But I don't like it when I'm wearing normal clothes like a really cute dress or top and my boobs become the main focus and it makes my outfit a whole lot less cute. I don't know. Perhaps I'm just weird but I do find cleavage attractive on other people. If I see someone on the bus or TV with nice cleavage, I'd stare and look too and I definitely think it's sexy. But when I see it on my own body, it's just NOT attractive at all because I only want to look cute in clothes and not sexy. You feel my complicated feels?!?! 

I mean why can't my chest look like this in the pictures above. No fat and just small boobies. T_______T I envy girls with this kind of body shape so much! 

My boobs fat problem isn't so obvious except when I wear tight tube dresses where you see all the fat squeezing out from the side of my chest and my arms. Sooooooo not attractive! Also I feel that because of my neglect care to fix this issue over the years of my teenage to adulthood life, it has caused my body to develop fat in other parts of my body such as my back, shoulders and upper arms. So when I wear sleeveless tube dresses, my upper body can sometimes appear to be rather bulky and big as compared to the small frame of my lower body and it makes me look like I have a man's body and really I just want to look more feminine. =( 

This problem of mine never bothered me all that much until in the recent year or so and I just really want to get it fixed somehow so that I can improve my overall body appearance. This means starting to actually wear and put a bra on properly and doing diet and exercises to get the body shape that I want. And while I was browsing through YesStyle a few weeks ago, I happen to find these shape wear tank tops that would hopefully help resolve my problem.

I got this body shape wear tank top that will help target to get rid of all the fat issues that I have. I also like how it helps to get rid of that belly fat problem (which I also have) due to working in an office environment where I am required to sit for a long period of time. My stomach is only flat when I wake up in the morning and it feels bloated throughout the day when I'm at work. T_T 

And I also got this other body shape wear tank top that will help to target other parts of my body such as my back and hips! Got these on sale with my 10% discount and hoping they'll work. 

Why is it so hard to be a girl? It already cost soooooo much for girls to buy bras and yet we need to spend more money on other things to obtain the ideal body shape we want to have? This is why a girl is forever broke in their life. T____T

YesStyle Purchases

Made two orders from YesStyle recently to use some of my coupons and to make good use of my gold elite club member status with 10% off discount before it expires. And I don't think I'll be buying clothes from the site again until summer 2014.

I wanted a more "holiday" sweater to wear for the holiday season and this black polkadots white sweater with gold sequins collar is just perfect!

I wanted to get a few winter skirts to wear because I absolutely dislike wearing pants now. Plus wearing pants actually don't keep my legs warm in the cold winter, especially jeans and my legs feel sooooo cold! This skirt is rather quite thick and it'll keep my legs warm paired with some cotton tights. I wear 2 layers of tights in the winter and they actually keep my legs much warmer than when I'm actually wearing pants. I like how the gold star studs accent on the skirt makes it more interesting and cute!

And lastly I got this houndstooth A-line skirt that will definitely keep me warm! Love how the style is so classic and chic!

Also YesStyle is having a CYBER MONDAY sale with 15% OFF + free shipping on all orders until December 2 for any one who is interested in buying from the site. Just enter the coupon code: cybermonday as instructed.

Outfit: 3 Coordinates With One Black & White Tee

I have been meaning to get this post up on my blog but I was so busy for the last 2 weeks with job interviews that I never had time to actually finish writing it. This post has been sitting on my saved draft for the longest time and I kept postponing the post date and now it's finally ready to be published!

It has been so long since my last outfit post. I think the last one I did was back in June? I got so busy over the summer with other things that I didn't have time to do any outfit posts so I'm hoping to get back to doing more during the winter. 

And since my friend Stephanie wanted me to show how I'd pair some of my tattoo tights for an outfit in my tattoo tights collection, I put two outfits together with tattoo tights. But I decided to make it a bit more fun by showing you how you can create 3 different outfits with one simple basic white black stripe t-shirt. I often see these type of coordinates in Japanese fashion magazines where a key basic item is used to create several different outfits so I decided to give it a try too! I'm just using whatever I have in my closet to put some outfits together which is perfect when you're low on budget and can't afford to buy new clothes. This really goes to show you can do so much with just one simple basic key item! =)

I only realized this after I took the pic that I forgot to add my black shorts in the outfit layout. No, you cannot go without shorts in this outfit especially with those nude tights with everything showing, LOL! 

The first outfit is all about spikes! Spike boots and spike black sweater paired with gun tattoo tight = super dangerous outfit. This outfit makes me feel like a tough girl with a strong attitude like don't mess with me unless you want to die! XD

Second outfit I decided to be a bit more girly and playful. Still wearing the same white black stripe t-shirt but with a spike necklace and hat added and wedge sneakers! I would have added black suspenders too but I don't have any. This outfit would also look nice with a black jumper skirt that's really in for the fall season. 

For the third outfit I added a leather jacket and poker tattoo tights for a more sort of edgy rocker look. I changed my spike necklace into a headband which can also be used as a bracelet as well. Very versatile accessory piece that I found on ebay. Isn't it so awesome?

And at last the three different outfit looks in full body shot. I took all these pictures on different days so the lighting and quality is a bit off. Lighting is so important when I'm taking pictures with my iPhone. I hate when the lighting is off and my picture quality turns out all crappy but it can't be helped sometimes with the weather change. =(

I hope this inspire and give you ideas for creating different outfits with one simple key item. Which outfit look is your favourite? =)

20% Off All My Beauty Diary Items On YesStyle

I was on the YesStyle site to check something and noticed they are having 20% off all My Beauty Diary items!! OMG I got excited and almost got tempted to buy more masks but I already have 4 boxes at home that I'm still trying to finish. I'm also currently on an online shopping ban because I still haven't found permanent full-time employment yet and I only get benefits from EI for not long. So I'm trying to save money and only buy things that I really need. 

But for anyone else who is interested, go shop away at and If you're unfamiliar with the brand My Beauty Diary then you can read about my review on their masks. 

I'm promoting this site so much on my blog that I really wish they could sponsor me to write reviews for them. It would be nice and I'm still hoping for that day to come! =D

On another note, I finally got upgraded to an elite club gold member status on the site. A few weeks ago YesStyle emailed me about this customer loyalty reward where I will receive 100 points for writing one review on an item I have purchased from the site. So I went and wrote a ton of reviews on the site and finally earned enough points to upgrade to gold member status where I get 10% discount and 4 $10 coupons!! I thought that was pretty awesome as I've never been on the gold member status before as you need to have over 1000 points and I only buy so little stuff from the site each year to earn that many points. Good to know I'm finally getting some kind of reward back for being a customer after so many years. I think I might take advantage of it and buy a few things before the year ends because my gold member status will also expire in January 2014. I'm currently thinking what I should buy though as I don't really have that much money to spend so maybe I'll only buy a few items. If only I won the lottery then I'd buy everything with my 10% discount on top of all the sale discounts too! XD

Shopping: Cowboy Boots & Lace Dress

Updating with some stuff I bought because I finally got paid from work!! I got these two items on sale too so it makes me feel less guilty for going shopping. =P 

I got these brown cowboy boots on sale for $20 at Costa Blanca. I've been wanting to get boots in this style and colour in a very long time and they're just perfect to wear for the fall season! 

I was looking for a simple white lace dress and I found this on the sale rack at H&M FOR $10 ONLY! Can you believe that?!?! It was on sale for $20 (and it was originally $35 full price) but they were having this additional 50% off the reduced price. It was the last small size they have too. I must have been super lucky to find it!! This is like the cheapest dress I have ever bought too. Super happy! =D

Halloween House Decorations

Since Halloween is coming up I thought I would share some of the house decorations in my neighbourhood. I love street and neighbourhood. Every year on Halloween and Christmas the houses are always decorated so nice and festive!

What plans do you all have for Halloween? Going trick-or-treating or costume parties?
