glitters, sparkles, & extraordinary details

there's a cosmetic brand called "the saem"
it's basically a very affordable cosmetics line
with cute designs but that works quite effectively
this set of 3 gradation manicure polishes
costed $4.50 (or 4500 Korean won) approximately
how it works is like this:

you paint A all over your nails
B only about 2/3 of your nails
C the french tip of your nail (or 1/3)
and you will get:

nail art like this :)
it looks more beautiful up close and in real life
but i couldn't get the exact feel i wanted ... sorry
but you see how easy they are in applying and all right?

(the other way i do gradation is to get a sponge
there's a gradation sponge selling in these kinds of cosmetics stores
and then apply three or two colors of match you want
and sponge them on your nails

but it's harder to get the colors fade naturally
so you'll have to paint the polishes about 3-4 times to get the clearer colors)
I'll show you how the sponge looks like
in upcoming posts if you would like

met up with my high school friends over last weekend
and one of my friend took these pics and sent these to me :)
my hair is longer on the back side but can't tell
any suggestions for me to try easy hair-do's?
if you have any basic tips and or tricks you know
please teach me!

fab pieces from cartier, jimmy choo and louis vuitton
glued the pages in my inspiration book

i'd meant to show these to you when i first got them
few months back
but realized that i still haven't
do you like my shoes from suecomma bonnie?
it's my favorite shoes brand in Korea
costed about $600 (as far as I can remember it was about 598,000 korean won?)

for full collection views and to see where you can purchase them
off and online (sells in Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, U.S. and Middle East too!)

and for pricing in Korean won


custom monogram linens $52
this means i can get my own initials or whatever three words
I want to write in them right? :)
perfect for parties & visitors coming at for any occasions

robins egg clutch $62
perfect clutch for spring
especially for the wedding attendance

something blue ring pillow $68
feels so romantic
i guess i'm inspired by royal wedding too much

black and cream tuxedo jacket $225

kimchi pant $168

petite romance set $158

scallop skirt navy dot $128

all can be purchased at


look at those beautiful stripes fading out in gradation
waist area makes this dress perfectly long & lean
love the light fabric of this clothing

love the shoes
if you are not afraid of color blocking
then this kind of dress is for you!

beautiful dresses from kron by kronkron s/s11 collection
