Grey tee (YesStyle), black blazer (Free Fusion), burgundy maxi skirt and bow belt (from Eleanor)
Eleanor of "Shameless Quirks" (whom I got to meet up with at the Melbourne Bloggers Meet!) had a pre-loved clothes blog sale and that was where I made my first ever maxi skirt purchase. I was so excited to receive it and try it on because it looked gorgeous on her. And for only $10, it was a steal :3 I loved how she included the bow belt - it goes so well with it!

She's actually going to be selling pre-loved clothes and more along with Melody (Melludee) and Sue (en-ce-moment) tomorrow morning at the Camberwell Market! If only I resided in Melbourne or was there again :( I would totally go and visit them at their stall!!
Anyway, I decided to wear the maxi skirt because it was quite a chilly day (quite odd for summer) when I went out to catch up with a friend over coffee.
This was good but yep... still missing the Starbucks :/
One of my favourite shops in Chinatown is Kawaii which is divided in two sections - one side sells items where everything is $2.80 which I guess is a mini Daiso. Actually it's not even half the size of Daiso :(
They also have a small range of Japanese snacks which may be more or less than $2.80. I grabbed these Rilakkuma sticks for $1.50... only because the packaging was so cute ^^
They're ok haha, I think they're vanilla-flavoured
However the other half of the store sells most Japanese cosmetics, magazine, skincare products, accessories and more! There is even a Jill Stuart collection locked up in a glass cabinet and it looks so pretty T__T I want it all!
Unfortunately I wasn't able to take a picture of it while being subtle about it. I just know that sales assistants get annoyed when customers take photos inside their store. Though I did manage to take a few sneaky ones lol.
So sorry for the bad quality >< Being sneaky isn't easy!
Dolly Wink range *_* I would much rather buy online though... these are overpriced!
I found it cool how they have a Japanese tutorial video playing of how to use these double eyelid fibres
On Thursday I played tennis for the very first time! Not competitively though, just for fun and to get a feel for what it's like to serve and hit the ball. The poor boyfriend had to put up with my noob skills and unco-ness xD But thankfully he said that he would like to play tennis with me again some time!
Afterwards we went to eat at a nearby cafe and I had something quite yummy and refreshing:
Can't go wrong with a warm chicken and crispy bacon salad!
I seriously can't believe that it's February already and I'll be heading back to uni in a month's time. Am I looking forward to it? Yes and no, but mostly yes. No because of the stress and lack of sleep but yes because I am looking forward to seeing my friends who I haven't caught up with in the holidays and... the fact that I will be starting another degree. This means that I will finish the one that I have been studying (in my final year now) and then start the next one the following year. I will graduate with two separate degrees! I was supposed to officially graduate from uni next year but it looks like I'll be staying for at least another three! Commerce, here I come :) And cheers for the offer.
That's about it for my 'life update'. Not sure if these types of posts are interesting or worth reading; though I must say that they remind me a lot of when I first started blogging back in '08 with my daily non-beauty/fashion-related recounts.
Hope you're all well and thanks for reading~
