green-and-purple

outfit detail is written above in photos

location: paradise hotel in Busan

sorry I look so tired and half-awake
my constant drinking habit of caffeine is getting worse
now I think I should stop and stick to water or... some fresh juice
(maybe 1-2 cups of coffee would be fine... I think)

이번 아웃핏 디테일은 사진에 적어놨어요
커피를 계속 마시는 버릇이 있다보니
이젠 슬슬 고쳐보려고 합니다
하루에 1-2잔 정도로 계획을 삼고 주로 물과 생과일 쥬스를
들고 다니는 습관을 만들려고 합니다 :)




these days I love getting tea lattes in iced from Starbucks
(usually ordering vanilla ...something and lavender one)

요즘 스타벅스에선 친구랑 티라떼를 잘마시고 있는데요
주로 바닐라나 라벤더향 그 둘중 하나 고르는 편이에요




this week's nail - do is from thesaem cosmetics
(had some promotion over the weekend so this time no it's not my work!)

but I know how to do those leopard nails thing
the only thing was that I didn't have a tiny tiny brush
which I recently got for 3 bucks at an art supplier store near my school

이번주는 제가 손톱 하지 않았답니다
하지만 이 호피무늬 할줄은 아는데
제일 얇은 브러쉬가 없어서 고민이었는데
화방에서 하나 사왔어요 ㅎㅎㅎ




I once introduced you to vb program (search in the box or click the label below this post if you are interested)
Like I said earlier, it's owned by Amore Pacific group which I totally trust in cosmetics area
Some brands they own and I am addicted to are
etude house, hera,  aritaum etc.

VB program is what we call here an "inner beauty" products
that means we consume (eat or drink) these for beauty purposes
(for firming, moisturizing, slimming, and etc.)

and because I was picked as the best reviewer of VB program last month
I got some sample kits again
thank you so much VB and I really enjoy them!

예전에 VB 프로그램에 대해서 얘기한적이 있는데요
예전 리뷰가 궁금하시다면 위에 검색박스에 vb program 을 입력하시거나
이 포스팅 밑 라벨을 눌러주세요.
아모레 퍼시픽을 좋아하다보니 비비프로그램도 신뢰를 가지게 되었어요
좋은 impression 호감을 가지고 있던 저에게
저번달 베스트리뷰?로 뽑아주셔서 샘플키트들을
받았답니다 ^^





firstly I want to talk about the collagen drink
this is the first time for me to try it out
 I recommend this program to all females
I drank these with my mom and we both loved this program!
I heard that it is hard to achieve collagen just from eating food
so this ample (looks bubblegum pink!) is a helper to make your skin find that balance
in between your works, stress, and all that tiring, dry atmosphere
this is full of vitamin C and hyaluronic acid for restoration purposes

콜라겐 드링크는 제가 이번기회로 처음 마시게 되었는데요
엄마랑 같이 마시고 느낀점은 모든 여성들에게
추천하고 싶었어요
음식으로만 콜라겐을 섭취하기엔 부족하다고 들었어요
(족발이나 이런 음식들 가끔 피부를 위해 드시죠?ㅎㅎ)
그래서 이 프로그램은 재생이나 깨진 피부의 리듬을 다시 찾아주는
밸런스를 맞춰주는 비타민 C 와 히알루로산 콜라겐등이 풍부한
그런 앰플이라고 저는 받아들였답니다






secondly I wrote this review once
the prune juice?
the liquid can be mixed with water or milk (I prefer milk)
so it can help you cleanse your body (inside)

이 프룬 액을 저번에 리뷰 썼었는데요
저는 물보단 우유에 타먹는게 제 입맛에 더 맞았어요
몸안을 깨끗이 비우기 위한 드링크라고 할까요?








these are some checklists to see what program works for you the best
to make a quick summary

you are a prune juice type if you check
-you feel like digestion is not going on well
-you don't drink much water, nor consume much fruits/vegetables
-all of a sudden there seems to be some breakouts appearing in your face


you are a slimmer kit person if you check
-you gained weight and can see difference in fats in your thighs & hips
-don't have that much time for exercise and you often eat food after supper time
-you gained some cellulites


you are a collagen program person if you check
-you feel like you need some firming products noticing the difference in your chin area
-seems you lost some weights (especially in your face area) that makes you look older than usual



what do you think?
which program do you have to work on with?


위에 체크리스트를 보시고 필요한 프로그램을 선택하실때 도움이
될거라고 생각합니다 ^^















this is the third one slimmer dx kit.
this is not like a slim fast or that kind of detox thing
you can eat everything you want and just drink this one ample per day
at anytime you prefer
and this isn't to dramatically lose weights but to
like many other VB programs find that right "balance" in your body
to make it more efficient to lose unnecessary fats

of course it will work better if you drink this before you exercise, take a walk,
or go for work/school I guess!


이 슬리머키트는
레몬디톡스나이런방식과는 달리 이 앰플만 식사대용으로 드시는게 아니에요
편하신 시간에 드시면서
다른 프로그램들처럼 더욱더 효능적으로 밸런스를 맞추기 위한
몸을위한 헬퍼이지 확 몸무게가 몇키로가 빠지는
(갑자기 빠지시면 안좋아요! ) 이런 슬리머가 아니랍니다.
대신 저는 저녁에 드셔도 좋지만
주로운동하기전, 걷기전 (일이나 학교가기전) 에 마시면
더 체중감소,특히 불필요한 우리가 쉽게 뺄수 없는 지방들 쪽이
감소되지 않을까 생각합니다.









the clear red ample look is the difference between this slimmer and the collagen drink
(the size is the same)

슬리머랑 콜라겐은 사이즈가 똑같아서 안읽으시면 헷갈리실지도^^;
투명한 레드가 슬리머,
약간 뽀얀 느낌의 버블검핑크가 콜라겐입니다












see the difference?

차이점 보이시죠?


these programs are similar to taking vitamins
it's a daily take of course
and the longer you take and gets quite used to these programs
I'm sure the effect will be more visible (clearer and firm skin, slimmer shape of the body)
it takes your patience and the right amount of food you consume, exercise,
and the positive mind :) enjoy!

모든지 꾸준히 골고루 식단 거르지 마시고,
운동하시고, 제일 중요한건 항상 긍정적인 마인드를 가지고
생활하신다면 결론적으로 원하시는 바디나 얼굴의 변화가 찾아올거라고
생각합니다. 제 포스팅이 조금이나마 도움이 되셨길 바래요~

Interview with Compania Fantastica

totally love this polkadot trouser
I could wear it to school, shopping with friends, movies everywhere!

this time I did an interview with amazing Compania Fantastica team,
for original post check out here: http://firstlook_b.blog.me/90139391827


How did the compania fantastica born? It must have been a very hard work
and lots of efforts, time put into it.

Companiafantastica was born 3 years ago. It was Mini and Jaime (brother and sister)
who started the offer in terms of fashion that Madrid had was weak and many people could not
find cool alternatives to dress up.
We wanted to display cool urban fashion but at what we called it really affordable prices.
Later press refer to us as "Chic and Cheap" we definitely have shown that fashion is not a luxury.
Nowadays, Compania Fantastica is being sold in more than 20 countries from
Japan to USA, Holland, Germany, Italy , France, Portugal...etc.




The chicest part of the brand would be?

The naive and retro touch of all our designs and the versatility of them which makes you can wear
them either to go to work with flats and simple accessories or with heels and more
special complements to go out at night.
Always cool.


So you said that the collection is very price-efficient, right?

This is one of our main objectives and I am sure one of our strong points.
We make fashion stylish but simple and proof of it is that
Compania Fantastica has spread in the last 2 years and now more than
250 shops are carrying our brand!




If one wants to travel for this spring break, what three pieces would you recommend?

Kill All Artists T-Shirt with Dotty Trousers (casual outfit),
Three Tone Dress (daily outfit),
& Romantic Dress (night outfit)


Compania Fantastica surely seems to have a ton of chic options.
Last message to readers?

Make it cool but make it simple.
Stylish borns inside!!!

interview with Sete Di Jaipur

original post for 1stlook: http://firstlook_b.blog.me/90139298078 



Your brand features luxurious look. What image does your brand portray?

We have developed a smooth image of refined prints and embroideries, using colors
as our peculiar skill. Sensations of faraway lands and sophisticated charm in order to stress
femininity, combined with natural precious fabrics.








The lookbooks were so exotic and exquisite. How does it proceed to style it up?

The lookbook represent our actual communication message, that is expressed in the beginning by
the collection. We are NOT importers of Eastern items, but we are an Italian company which styling
pool turns other countries' visual icons into an Italian collection.
The lookbooks are shot in Turin, choosing ancient royal palaces or eclectic
furnished flats so to underline our Italian and Turin appartenance.








If one is looking for never-take-off-accessory, what would you recommend?

Embroidered silk/pashmina stole in winter,
printed + embroided silk haboutai scarf in spring.








What are some color choices often used for Sete Di Jaipur?

Bright colors are preferred ones.
Green, red, yellow, fuchsia are always used in every collection.








Can you give us any styling tips as a fashion teacher?

Easy and soft clothes in natural fibers are always giving psychogical & physical comfort.
Mix fancy items as tops or kurtas together with plain color pants and dust coat.
Never forget a scarf as a crown for the face, to underline your personal touch.

interview with Barbara Campbell






How do you create accessible collection?

My collections are usually inspired by the environment around me.
I started in the mountains of Vermont, lush and green, and then the beaches of Montauk,
wide open sands, beautiful stones and crashing waves.
I am also inspired by New York City neighborhoods, DUMBO in Brooklyn,
Soho in Manhattan. Soho inspired my black and gold glam collection.




Any layering advice in jewelry?

This year's trend is all about layering.
I love to layer necklaces and bracelets. I love to see a woman in layered bracelets.
My Black and Gold collection has many pieces that are meant to be layered.







Favorite color for Barbara Campbell NYC would be:

Black and monotone colors.







What type of women are BC women?
I can imagine already the bold beauty looks!

BC women set trends, they don't follow them.
They are bright, vivacious and bold. They are contemporary and many are fashionistas.
They are financially conscious, they seek quality and value.
They are diverse in age and race, and they are cosmopolitan.
She is confident; she likes to make a fashion statement.

oh,taco! & interview with shoesofprey









found ohtaco! where they specialize in tacos, burritos and quesadillas etc.
first heard of this place from one of the professors at my school.
I really missed Mexican food and it was hard to find reasonable place
besides taco bell in Korea.
most of the price ranged from 8 bucks to about 12.
and you get this stamp thing for 10 bucks each and for 15th stamp, you get
the quesadillas free!
pretty good deals I guess (love collecting these kinds of offer cards, coupons)

오타코 라는 곳을 생활영어회화 교수님이 가르쳐주셔서
요즘 자주 방문하고 있습니다
(위치는: 부산 부경대학교 담벼락 쪽 골목으로 들어오셔서
제일 처음 닿는 골목에서 또 왼쪽으로 꺾으시면
바로 있답니다)

가격대는 8천원에서 12000원선정도?
만원단위로 스탬프도 찍어주시더라구요
15번째에는 케사디야가 공짜라고 하니
열심히 모아봐야겠어요 ㅎㅎㅎ




















since I'm taking mostly the classes related to my major (in Eng. Lit.)
I have quite a lot of free time in between of classes
(usually 1-4 hours) so what I do is often go out and there are lots of
places to eat, shop, and to just feel the crowded atmosphere I guess
so I'm getting used to try finding new places for different kinds of food?
and for snacks my friend and I went to eat a triangle rice roll thing?
we ordered the tuna salad one (costed 1,800 won or about $1.80)

전공위주로 듣다보니 중간중간 비는 시간이 많아져서
요즘 새로운 먹을곳, 쇼핑할곳을 찾고 있어요 ㅎ
오니기리와 이규동 주위에 정말많은데
이번에 처음 먹어봤어요
가격대도 1,800원이라 간식으로 부담없을거 같았고
학생들에게 굿인거같았어요!




first time tried Japanese ramen (miso noodle) at centumcity (forgot the name of the place)
costed 6,500 won ($6.50)
was really good!

센텀시티에서 일본라멘 처음 먹어봤는데요
미소라멘 정말 맛있어요 ㅎ 가격은 6,500 원 이었던거같아요





and like always I wanted to translate this article with Shoes of Prey (for 1stlook magazine)
so you can also read them!
check out the original link at: http://firstlook_b.blog.me/90139146020

한글본은 퍼스트룩 블로그에서 확인해주세요
직접 만드는 수제화인 Shoes of Prey 정말 멋있지 않나요?

How did you decide to team up with the customers to design for themselves?

I'd been commissioning my shoe designs for some time,
because I could never find exactly what I wanted.
As my collection of fun, gorgeous shoes grew,
my girlfriends asked where I was getting my shoes.
I explained that I had designed them myself,
and started to commission designs for them too.
My two co-founders Michael and Mike were both working at Google and looking to get into online retail.
With the marriage of the two ideas, Shoes of Prey was born.




What's the utmost importance your brand believe in?

The right pair of shoes can make you feel like you can conquer the world.
Our shoes are beautifully handmade from raw materials,
and I love hearing our customers tell us about how fabulous they felt when they got to wear
their very own design.




There are some strong splashes of color.
How many colors are just about right to mix it up?

I would say three colors are enough as a general rule of thumb,
though we have seen some exceptions to the rule
that look amazing with more colors!




Any shoes from your line especially fond of?

There are far too many shoes from our collection that I love,
which explains my large shoe collection!
Today my favorite pair is one we've not released yet...
but, I promise to tell you as soon as we're ready to launch!




Shoes of Prey surely seems to be the great gifts.
Any advice for readers in terms of styling or any last message?

Shoes of Prey is the perfect gift-it only takes a couple of clicks
to order, and the recipient will be able to create exactly what they want!
In terms of style advice-have fun!
Enjoy color, texture and take a risk!
This season is a culmination of gorgeous color,
so indulge and enjoy it!
