some new stuff

today i went shopping! :o... and i was so badly dressed today lol... (no "on-"ootd picture, lol) but i was wearing a black basic esprit top... and underneath a red sleeveless "wraptop"... and a pair of diy skinny jeans, which are too loose on me now... and my old... not-so-white-anymore boots :x lol... yes... that happens too :x when i'm not in the mood, and when it's really cold... i would just throw some random stuff on :x

but... well... my lovely not-so-white-anymore boots, isn't only not white anymore... but they also got holes in it :x it's so hard for me to find the perfect pair of flat boots... i went to every shoe store i could find, but i couldn't find any flat boots that i like :x i almost gave up... but thought i might check the store, where i got the white boots... it's not a shoe store... but they do sell shoes...

and i found these:

and i just bought them... they are real leather with suede straps... and i have to say... i'm not in love with them... but i think they are cute though... and it has the same shape as the white boots (what i like), probably because it's by the same brand (xx by mexx)... and plus... they were on sale... the original price was 129eur something and i got them for 49eur!

other than that... i also got these:

probably gonna make a diy out of this... but i have no idea how it will turn out... i just have the concept... :p never tried it out, so it will be like another experiment ^^... i really love the colors ^^ like a eggplant color and a really bright purple ^^

i really hope i can do it tomorrow... :x hope the lighting won't fail me :x since i won't be able to do it in the morning... :x hmmm or should i already try tonight?! :x


the rest of 2009...

i decided to stay in amsterdam for the rest of 2009 :p sounds long, but it's just less than 2 weeks... just because i planned something for tomorrow... and have something to do on thursday... and i will be spending the first x-mas day in amstelveen... and the second x-mas day in amsterdam again... and also spend the last day of the year in amsterdam too... so it's easier for me to just stay here, instead of traveling back and forth... it saves some money too :p

and all i took with me is 1 bag of clothing... and just two pair of shoes :s will that be enough to create nice outfits? i just randomly packed some clothing! and brought some jeans... because it's sooo cold outside :x

and i actually bought some stuff to do some diy, but my bag was so heavy today that i couldn't bring it with me... hopefully i can grab some stuff tomorrow while shopping, so i can still make at least 1 diy video before x-mas... :x and probably gonna make it a sponsored video, since i probably (?) won't have enough time to make more before it gets 2010! :p

other than that... a few days ago (thursday)... i was here in amsterdam, and had to go back to almere for a few days to pack some stuff... (to prepare my long stay in amsterdam)... i wasn't prepared for the cold weather yet... and it was so cold that week (and still is)... that i wore everything i could find in my room... i found black and white stripped tights (which i got from my mom a long time ago)! i never wore it before since i'm not a big fan of black and white stripes... but i decided to wear it under my leggings, since my leggings are so thin (and a bit sheer too)... i could see the stripes through my leggings... and somehow i'm liking it! i'm probably going to wear those tights more often under my leggings!

hmmm what else... i might be going to post some ootd here on my blog (the comming 2 weeks)... or just make short video's? :x i don't know yet... haha it depends on what outfits i can create with the clothing in my bag :p and it also depends on how long the battery will last of my digital camera, since i forgot to get the charger :x but luckily i brought my macbook with me the last time i was here... and left it here... ^^ so i can use it these two weeks! yeay!

hmmm... i think that i have nothing more to say for now :) have a nice day! dress warmly! and stay healthy! :)


my new haircut

if someone was wondering what i asked my hairdresser:
i asked to have it short in the back and gradually longer to the front... i told her not to go too short on me though, because i haven't had a short cut for about 10 years :x... like always she cut my upper layers short, so i can wear my haircut as messy or as neat as i want ^^ and she kept my bangs the way i always have it, she just trimmed it and thinned everything down, because she always tells me that i have a lot of hair :x

the picture i showed my hairdresser is actually my own picture:

the faked short cut picture i showed at the end of my last post

now some pictures of my actual haircut, since some has asked... not great pictures, but i tried my best though :)

the back - not styled

left side - not styled

right side - not styled

front - not styled

front - styled


my hair history :x

this will be a long post :x with lots of crazy pictures :x it's just me rambling about a new haircut... plus might be interesting for the people who has been asking about my hair lolx...

i've been thinking for a very long time now... about how i should cut my hair... my haircut have all grown out now, and is a total mess :x last time that i got a haircut was in hong kong... and i even didn't let it cut the way i wanted... i just asked for a shorter and lighter haircut, because of the hot weather... :x

and plus... i "have" this layered haircut for years now! :x

i think this was one of the first picture i took with this haircut :x 2007

so, now... i'm starting to get tired of this haircut... :x i want something else... but what? (that's why i have been asking other people's opinion, but it seems like no one can help me :()

let's go through some haircuts i had before... lol... (i was going through my external harddisk and just picked out some funny pictures as well... lol... i also noticed that some old pictures were damaged T_T which is a sad thing)

back to 2003, me and my best friend

i used to have very long hair :x (some more pictures taken in 2003 :p)

i'm sorry yush, but this pic is just too funny... and you can see my long hair, in the mirror... lol

it's funny to look back, and realize how much time has past...

x-mas 2003 dinner, i believe

on to 2004, still the same haircut :p

my old clothing style is so T_T

front view of the picture above :x

a better back view :p

it was a bored day and we decided to go "shopping", my friends would choose things they like, and i would try them on :p it was fun...

i think i started having bangs in 2005 :p

and i had even shorter bangs in 2006!

me and my dog

close up

full straight bangs :x

and cut it a bit shorter too, made me look even younger :x

and whenever i didn't like my hair, i would just curl it :x

lol... doesn't this look like a bowl-cut?

it wasn't a bowl-cut though...

at the end of the year, i decided to cut off my long hair, because i got tired of it :x

i kinda missed my long hair after cutting :x

in 2007 i was growing my bangs again...

and my hair got more voluminous... after this i got the haircut of the first picture of this post

another picture after that haircut

and another...

and now some other hair pictures ^^

reversed braid, catwalk inspired, lol


some classy big curls

some faked short cuts...

don't i look like a boy :s

inspired by bleach i think :p

some fake bobs... i always wanted one, but i was afraid to, and i'm seeing more and more people with this cut :x which made me don't want it... :s

and i like it messy like this...

hmmm... after browsing my history of my hair... i still don't know what to do... should i cut it short? but some certain people would kill me for that lol...

i made an appointment for wednesday at 1pm :x i might come back with a total new haircut? or would i go back to my old one, one more time?

(more pictures have been damaged than i first thought... :( ow noo!!)
