    If My Heart Was A House

    My new go-to site, Who What Wear. It's like a Teen Vogue e-book.

    Have been trying new fashion sites these days, but so far nothing beats Sea of Shoes. Just that now that I've read all her archives, Jane's updates seem to be craaaawwwwlllinng allloooong so slowly.

    Still hopelessly addicted to Owl City songs. I want all their albums really badly! I should add that to my wishlist. Under 'Telly', probably.

    Mum bought me a skirt from Uniqlo! It's red, soft and tiered, with an elastic band round the top. It's the perfect length for high-waist! Apparently Mum also bought 2 Uniqlo cardigans which she says I can borrow (:

    Shortly after posting the previous updates I went downstairs for a walk with Dad. I saw brown bananas O_O I'm serious, they were brown and shiny, like they went for a suntan at the beach. Then we passed the shop where I used to buy shoes from (I still remember I once bought tan-coloured patent strappy sandals there and wore them till they fell apart.... fashionable from a young age, hmm) which reminded me of the North Star sneakers I saw in Bata (I think I posted about them, right?) and got me wondering if I could dye or paint them white. I love the light grey version, but I don't think NY would let me wear them to school. [Could I run in them? Another difference I've come to notice is that in Singapore, students are practical enough not to bring separate sport shoes to change into for PE. Maybe because they don't have the time. Sigh.]

    Looked for tweezers in the shops downstairs (recent notice: tweezers are Dad's ONLY impulse buys) but they were sold out of the small ones EVERYWHERE, they only carried the super huge ones that my dad didn't like. I got distracted by a "Magic Bun" pin that my dad let me buy for an amazing price of 80 cents!!! It's surprisingly effective. My hair's slightly too short for it now so little bits stick out, but my mum says it's ok. It's basically a little pin where you put your hair through it, twist a few times, then curl the pin round and connect the ends like a bracelet. I can now tie my own buns without using about one thousand pins!!! (: Hopefully it won't break. For 80c, it might...

    The fresh air was nice, plus it had been raining. I got lots of water droplets on me but it's alright, I agree with my dad in that it's not good to be at a computer all day (*cough*). Sadly in BKK we can't just go out randomly, and there's nothing like Singapore air after the rain... There's something about homely HDB communities that feels so nice. (Plus, it helps that there's a 7/11 nearly to grab Cornetto Classico cones from. ;D Wink wink, 2 for SGD 3.20!)
