This post is super delayed (sorry Marie) however I have now found the time to blog about it. I took pictures a couple of weeks ago and you'd think I could manage to blog about it in the same week I took the photos but that's not how it is for me =[ Same with product reviews, I always take pictures and test the product weeks or sometimes even a month before I actually sit down and write up a blog post haha x[
I'm pretty sure you're all familiar with Marie by now since this is the third time I've mentioned her in a blog post (refer to my package-swap posts) :D But just in case you're not, she's one of my blogging besties and she currently resides in Perth, Australia. I love her to bits and our greatest connection is our high admiration for K-pop ♥ Did I ever mention that we're quite alike with much in common? Check out her blog if you haven't done so already: http://exuvalia.blogspot.com
Marie held a giveaway in February and announced the winner on the 1st of March. Guess what? I ended up being the randomly-picked winner of her awesome giveaway which was a total surprise to me. Of course, I was very happy and excited about being the winner because this was what she was giving away:
A brand new playsuit/jumpsuit/romper/whatever you want to call it! *__*
It's a size small so it's perfect for me and this is the first playsuit I've ever owned. I've always wanted one but could never find a really pretty one for a good price. Thanks so much Marie for this generous giveaway.
I can't just leave this post as it is, for sure I'd show you guys what it looks like when worn hehe:
Please mind the messy floor from studying ^.^"
I love this colour, baby blue (:
I especially love the ruffles on the top, it makes it look less plain!
I adore the floral detail inside the pocket and at the bottom
Although it's suitable for a size small, the top part is a bit big for me compared to the bottom part. I must be out of proportion D: But that's okay, I know I don't have the perfect body!
Unfortunately I won't be wearing this playsuit out any time soon due to the cold weather nowadays but I'll definitely be wearing it out when it's spring/summer at the end of the year =)
Instead on a sunny day, I decided to take some photos of myself 'modelling' the outfit. I am no professional model nor have I ever done any type of real modelling so don't take my photos too seriously lol, I was just playing around by having funny poses for your own viewing enjoyment ;P
Mind you, I have no makeup on, neither am I wearing any circle lenses :]
The view from the back
Whipped out my sunglasses for no reason
The hands-on-hips pose. Too common, too cheesy?
Blowing you some kisses xx
I've seen so many pictures famous Korean girls posing like this, so I gave it a shot
Except they look way better than this, and cuter :(
I don't know what this is. An 'L' shape perhaps? L for love ^o^
Yeah, that is all. I had my camera on timer and it was supported on a tripod. Makes posing for outfits so much easier and better. Sorry for the graininess in some of them, I had my camera on zoom because I couldn't have it standing right in front of me. And I'm STILL using my phone's camera and I'm hoping that I can get a new digital camera for my birthday next month.
Speaking of birthdays, I went to my friend from high school's 18th birthday dinner last Sunday. It was a lovely night and I enjoyed seeing and talking to my high school friends again. It's now rare for us to all be together at once since we're all so busy these days and school's over =[ I actually miss high school! Well not everything - I miss seeing my friends everyday and having teachers who actually care about what you do and your progress in school.
I currently don't have any photos of me and my friends on the night but I'll show you my outfit and accessories:
A mirror shot from the bathroom, lol
It was a chilly night so I wore my blazer and tights. Very glad that I did because we sat outside to eat under the shade.
I took a while to get ready, I totally lost track of time so I ended up being a bit late to my friend's birthday :/ However, three of my friends came even later than me so that made me feel a bit better haha. I really wanted to do my hair and wear my wavy hair extensions *sigh* maybe I should have done my hair before my makeup... but knowing me, I'd choose doing makeup over hair xD
I had no time to take photos before I went so the rest of these outfit and accessories pictures were taken when I got home. No face photos because my eyeliner and mascara were starting fade and smudge xP
The closest photo of my face you can get from these pictures
My heels~ I can't go out in a dress/skirt without a pair of heels on!
This is one pair of the heels I wore
A closer look at my outfit of the night:
- Pink top with lace on the sleeves, wearing a white singlet underneath
- Coral skirt with a black bow at the front (I love bows)
I wore this necklace to my graduation last year
It's a carousel with a rocking horse up the top. It's similar to those bird cage designs but more unique
Gold key earrings with a pink rose and a pearl, so elegant
A pearl bracelet with a silver bow
The birthday girl gave us all a little gift of thanks for attending her birthday, naww. She made macarons and placed them into a box!
She's too kind :D I wish I could make macarons
I don't know what the flavour was exactly but I tasted strawberry
Ah it was so delicious, no joke!!
Thanks for reading my blog post guys, hope you found it somewhat interesting. I tried to not write too much and include heaps of pictures, hence the combined post of Marie's giveaway item and an outfit of the night. I haven't done an outfit post in ages ^_^ Also, I didn't want this post to just be about me winning because for some that may be seen as bragging and I didn't want comments just to say congrats. Combined posts are better, yeah? I hope so :)
One more thing - did you notice the larger-than-usual photos I've uploaded?! I finally figured out a way to get them to be that size without using an external site to upload from. Larger photos are so much better in my opinion, but you know what would be better? Using an actual camera! Hoping that I will get a new camera within a month *fingers crossed*
A questjen for you:
Pick one for a night out - really good makeup or really good hair?
If you've read my entire post, you'd know what I mean about this questjen ;) I'd choose makeup because my hair is very low-maintenance and is naturally straight which already looks quite neat and tidy. And besides, makeup stands out more in photos than hair sometimes. I'm more face-conscious than hair-conscious, I can't help it!
