Polyvore Contest

Polyvore almost always have some sort of contests going on and I happened to come across a contest that's a crossover with Converse & our lovely Aimee from "Song of Style". I've been reading her blog for a long time now and I immediately wanted to enter this contest. Not so much for the prizes but really just as an inspiration.

Her sense of style have inspired and motivated me to really go after what I want :) Thanks to Aimee and a few other bloggers that inspired me to start my own blog. Of course not without my supportive friends/family! Long story short.. here's my entry piece!

Make It You: Sporty


 Maybe someday I'll move to LA to go after my dreams and sunshine!

Asian BB cream VS American BB Cream

Contestant #1 : Missha BB Cream- SPF20-  50ml -$11.50
  • 7 Essential Vitamin from natural ingredients & help improve the skin
  • Multifunction to moisturize, protect, correct skin tone & block UV
 Contestant #2: Maybelline Dream Fresh BB- SPF30- 30ml- $11.99
  • 8 in 1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector
  • Titanium Dioxide Sunscreen 
  • Enhances, brightens & adjust to skin tone while moisturizing and smooth skin imperfection

I really like both of these BB cream but I'm a bit tore between them. I'm not exactly sure if Maybelline's BB cream should actually be a tinted moisturizer instead? I love how these BB cream gives a light coverage with SPF which would be perfect for summer. I don't normally wear foundation or anything so this will do it since it's super light!

Missha's BB cream is actually 1/2 a shade darker than the Maybelline's Dream Fresh which I got in a Medium Sheer Tint.
Top: Missha; Bottom: Maybelline

I wore both for the whole day to try it out and Maybelline's gets a bit oily toward mid-day but nothing unmanageable. It could also be the SPF lotion I use underneath but the coverage didn't wear off and my skin didn't flake from dryness. (I have normal-dry skin)

On the other hand Missha's has a higher coverage than Dream Fresh but it tends to be on the drier side around mid-day.

I like both BB cream but if I really have to pick I think Missha would win just because it fits in more as the category of BB cream. If Dream Fresh was a tinted moisturizer I would pick it over Missha. It has a higher SPF factor, lighter coverage that still allow for my natural color to peek through. Both products gives my skin a super soft touch while covering small blemishes.

I wish they can make one that's a combination of these two products. I'm going to Hong Kong soon so I'll probably pick up a few more just to find the perfect one :)

I just wish it was sunny everyday here but then I guess I appreciate the sun A LOT more now than when I was back home in Hawaii :) I put together a quick outfit on Polyvore for those that get to enjoy the sun like a "REAL" summer.

This time of the year is a great time to play with colors and prints. I absolutely adore the floral dress and floppy hat combo. Casual yet elegant!! Pair it with a tote bag & shades and we are off to the beach! :)

You can wear this to a brunch right before you hit the water or sand if you are just going to tan. :P Don't forget to put on sunscreen to protect yourself and those smackable lips of yours! (SPF20 in Maybelline's Baby Lips)
Enjoy the SUN for me! XoXo

Bead Shopping

Friendship bracelets & beads reminds me of childhood days! ^.^ I've spent this past week at the bead shop by my house. I think I went there 3x in 5 days. :) Definitely spent some money there buying materials but it's still a lot cheaper than buying actual bracelets for $10 when I can make at least 5 of them.

I know the skulls have been pretty popular lately. At first it kinda creeps me out but it's starting to grow on me. I got them for 25cent each, super cheap compare to getting the pre-made one.

I think my favorite one is the pink/gold and the green/silver one.. those colors just pop!  I'm going to make a few more other styles so I can use them for stacking. FINALLY something that can fit my small wrist <3

Mini photoshoot

Seattle's been pretty darn nice to us lately with the sun.. except today.. of course Fri the 13th.. Thunder...RAIN..Hail..Wind? Where's my "Thunder Buddy"?? Oh Ted.. <3 

Despite that, I was able to get some sunshine during my lunch break last week and had a little picnic w/my co-worker :) Took some pictures after eating and we had bubbles at work to celebrate the end of the fiscal year so we took some with us!! oh childhood memories!

I love this neon yellow dress from Splendid. It's the most comfortable dress ever!! I have another one of their blouses and I'm telling you it's worth every penny. I just wish I fit their sweats so I can sleep in them <3

Don't laugh but they are kid's size 14.. I mean it fits perfectly and its cheaper!! :D

July 4th

Hope everyone had a great July 4th and I'm super jealous of those that took a vacation! I remember being in Vegas last year and it was soo awesome soaking in the sun and chilling at the pool. I spent this year's 4th at the park...waited 5 hrs for fireworks. It was pretty awesome except we were stuck in the parking lot afterwards for a good hr.. Tears*
