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 :)

today's inspiration: garden

few years back
love how stripes are already showing this year's color blocking trend
it's from banila b
belt from furla, pouchette from Louis Vuitton

roses from my grandma's house
and my new customized t-shirt from Nike


click photos to enlarge

beautiful new vintage designed pieces from gardenhouse
i love the french lettering on the pillows
i think it'll look perfect with just about anything
because of the white canvas
love the gold metal pipes for extra accents
you can visit the page for additional information

Wild African Rose Candle
you know how much  i love candles
they are very soothing relaxing effectors
also perfect for after barbecuing or just fried fish and such smell to get away

they bring great scents for friends and visitors at your house

Mango Guava bath salt

Patchouli Sandalwood Massage Oil
usually i love body oil because it can be mixed with body cream
for extra moisturizing
and if i apply it before i fall asleep it makes me more calmed down
from all the daily stresses

new addiction to blue

painting this nail was easy
this was actually just a trial to see how it'll look because i wasn't sure
if the colors would match or not
but since the color blocking is in trend
i painted in light blue (not close to skyblue though) is it baby blue?
anyways and then

using cotton swabs I dotted yellow, blue, green, red just about
any random 4 or 5 shades I reached to

urban outfitters hat, H&M faux foxtail keychain, Christian Dior bag (seen in previous post with starbucks), bvlgari necklace, forever21 skinny jeans, customized mink cellphone accessory, gifted blazer & etc.

having a dessert time with my mom
at Novotel Ambassadors Hotel

when i'm obsessed with one food
i start with it from the morning
just like i grabbed taco bells for breakfast
at the Westin Chosun
[btw i don't recommend hanging on your tiny clutch just like i did on neverful bag GM
because it feels like my strap is going to fall out soon
yea i should get a tiny pouch or keychain from LV instead]
this was taken two years back i think

[some random shopaholic series book I somehow got on hold to, cleanser tissues, MAC brush set, another LV bag in azure for the next day, and silky blue outerwear from UO]

i got smaller inspirations book
meaning that im just using random diaries i don't use
i can't keep up with writing out my schedules in hands
because i have everything in my ipad and in my galaxy s

blue watch from Salvatore Ferragamo
