Graduation Dress Inspirations @ 1:08 AM
It's late right now... Like 1:11am in the morning. Like usual I don't feel tired or can sleep until I'm actually laying on the bed and playing some otome game... Anyways! So I've been researching graduation dress inspirations instead online. The last graduation I had was back in high school and I wore a tres serious grey plaid pleated skirt and matching dress shirt with sweater that I got at RW & Co. Looking back, I regret it because it was such a stuffy feel. Plus I had a horrible haircut from my mom...I ♥ my mom but that was the last time I ever let her cut my hair ever again.
I'm kinda hoping to find a dress that isn't 'usual'. I just don't want to wear a black/white/grey dress. They're lovely colours but I really want something special because this is really really special to me. Looking at some of my friend's graduation ceremonies they wore a lot of black. Which to me does not seem like it's a new beginning? I don't know maybe I just have a odd mind... Here's some dresses I like from Yesstyle.com↓↓↓
Tokyo Fashion ~ I really like the colour of this one... I generally find bright colours look good with my skin colour. Plus polka dots are so cute (≧∪≦）Maybe not so modest with the lower neckline?
Tokyo Fashion ~ This one seems very appropraite for the occasion. It's a mock two piece. I like the ruffles but I'm not loving the sleeves that much.
Marloca ~ The colour is so nice! I love lace too ♥
Vividress ~ This is more neutral colour but I really like the flow of the dress. I like how the top part of the dress is almost like a cape and sits nicely on the arms~
Click ~ I really like this dress! The colour is so nice, the floral pattern is gorgeous. Sigh* but this dress is really expensive. $63 CAD... I'm not sure I want to pay such a price.
So those are my picks~ I don't think anyone else will care what I wear because I'll be under a gown the majority of the time. But I'll know, which is enough (⌒▽⌒). Which one do you guys like? Any suggestions? For those of you who've had your graduation ceremonies, what did you wear?
Oh~ And I wanted to mention that I can't believe I've almost reached 100 followers. ThankQ for following me! I'm excited! I was thinking maybe I should do something to celebrate such an occasion? Maybe a giveaway? I definitely need a new layout though... We'll see ~~
I'm going to head to bed now... I have lots to do tomorrow. Have to pack for the weekend trip, clean my room and bathe Bobby~ Good night ミ★

What's in Your Skincare? @ 1:00 AM
I'm not sure I've seen anyone post this website before but I came across it while researching about the ingredients in sunscreens ---> Cosdna
You can search up cosmetics that are in the pre-exsiting database or search up ingredients one-by-one in the ingredients search list. There is also a option to type in the ingredients of a product and it will compile the ingredients into a chart to be analyzed. Very interesting and fun to use! Language wise, the website functions in English, Chinese or Japanese. Here's an example of a product that I analyzed~
Skin79 ~ Crystal C Mist Toner
Try it out yourselves~ It's fun & informative. It will be a good tool to help you make choices on which products are right for your skin type. Hope everyone will find it as useful & interesting as I did

I'm graduating! & Recent FOTD @ 10:34 AM
We're having very beautiful weather here in Toronto~ Almost sunshine every day of this week already! I hope everyone else is enjoying life no matter whatever weather they may have, where ever they are :)
A big update on my current life situation. I'm glad to say that my 4 years spent in the program has come to an official end with my convocation on June 10th! On Tuesday, I went in for my final evaluation, which simply meant I was getting the final judgment of whether I was going to get my degree. It was nerve wrecking when you know your entire 4 years rested on this particular day... I'm sure anyone who needs to be evaluated non-academically knows what I mean! You feel like you hardly have control over the final results because you can't study hard for it, just only can give your best work. Anyways, I'm just glad it's really over and now I'll be able to concentrate on my license exam preparations. It's in a little over a month
Here's a recent FOTD of mine. I've been doing this look for a couple of days now. I've had much more time on my hands in the morning so I've been experimenting with lashes↓↓↓
This FOTD is so simple & easy to put together. I used neutral colours on my eyes, a peach blush and a tinted pink lip gloss on my lips. Especially since I am in semi-vacation mode, I'd rather sleep or spend more time outside in the sun than spend too much time in front of the mirror. Instead of using full lashes, I opted for accent lashes because I'm too lazy and SO BAD at putting on full lashes. Accent lashes are easy for first time learners and you still get a nice effect without too much hassle. However, I still enjoy the dramatic effect that full lashes give me
Here's a list of products that I've used:
Liole ~ BB Cream
Palgantong ~ Theatrical Powder in Original Beige
Kate ~ Diamond Cut Eyes BR-01
MAC ~ Gel Liner in Feline
Dawn & Maryiln 愛され mascara
Ardell Accent Lashes 301
Palgangtong ~ Pop Cheek PC21
Jean Paul Gaultier MADAME ~ Lip gloss in Grenadine Pink
I'm going to be going on a trip next weekend! My friends & I are planning to go to Blue Mountain/Collingwood, this area 2 hours from here. We're booking a 3 hour tour that includes a tour around the forest, tree top walk on a suspension bridge 410 foot above ground, cave tours etc. I'm really excited for it ! Now I must think of what outfits to bring because I'm very conscious like that

I am back...again! @ 9:33 AM
I can't believe it's been another 2 months since I made a post. Sigh* Well, good news is that classes & clinical were officially over for me since last Friday. I'm just waiting on the 20th for my evaluation which will tell me whether or not I've completed my program. In between I'm also applying for jobs and worrying about my license exam in June. Well, I'm spreading out those activities over a 2 month span~ Otherwise life actually has been quite nice! Especially the weather! The highest it will be is 13°C with clear skies. Looks like another lovely day ♥
Thank you for those who contributed comments on my last post about my hair. Ever since then I actually have cut it shorter & I quite love it. It so much easier to take care of~ I don't think I'll grow my hair for quite a while. It was a nice change from my long hair :) Here's some pictures from yesterday ↓↓↓
My shorter cut has more of a spring feel right? I love it♥ Also super love my can can/boater hat that I found on a lovely random day downtown! It looks like it'll fall off my head but I swear the end of the hat touches my head just fine. I just have a naturally big head（┬┬○┬┬）
Does anyone remember my fat puppy Bobby? He's only gotten fatter since we've gotten him... Plus his poor hair grows so fast that now his eyes are covered. We're taking him to be groomed tomorrow~ He'll be 1-years-old in 3 months ~!
I could post so much more but I've gotta take my dad to the doctor's for a check up. Will post more soon ♥
