Anna Dello Russo x H&M necklace: review and photos

Previously: Versace for H&M

Remember my previous post on the Anna Dello Russo serpentine earrings here? As mentioned, I'm not that into the whole collection for this season's collaboration, hence I got very few pieces. This necklace is the other item that I procured. It's simple enough for my taste, and not too loud. Albeit it has lots and lots of crystals and blings!

Shu Uemura Karl Lagerfeld: collection preview and review!

Remember my earlier post on the gold Shu Uemura eyelash curler? I have always been a huge fan of the Shu eyelash curler, and today I added one more to my collection: Shu Uemura Karl Lagerfeld! I bagged many items in the entire collection, and the item that I will use most is definitely the eyelash curler. But nonetheless, I also picked up other items in the collection. More on the goodies (especially the pouches that came with the collection) after the jump!

Earrings from Anna Dello Russo x H&M collection

UPDATE: Anna Dello Russo necklace review here

I recently managed to lay my hands on the Anna Dello Russo for H&M earrings that I've wanted to get for some time. I don't actually like the entire collection as the accessories are all too loud and flashy for me, and these hoops are one of the simpler designs. I've no idea what creature it is, but I think it's some form of reptile.

my new cat beret: looks and inspiration

I have been into cat ears these days, including the cat ear hairband (and DIY instructtions here). Recently, I managed to get a nice black cat ear beret. It's been really hot in the Japanese fashion scene this fall season, and is seen on models like Lena. It's a usual size of a beret, and slightly flatter than a usual trucker hat (here it lies beside my panda hat).

tokidoki bicycle playing cards: preview/review

I had been pretty busy these days, so I have not been able to indulge in card games. I used to play card games such as poker and bridge, but not any more due to my schedule. Nonetheless, I still keep a bunch of cards with me. When I heard that Bicycle was releasing Tokidoki playing cards, I had to get them. Not sure if they are limited edition, but I purchased a few packs just in case.

I've been using the Clarisonic Mia2 for the past 2 months, and I have been pretty pleased with the results. I have been changing up my routine over the weeks and tried different ways to optimize my skincare routine, and here's my take.

starbucks tumbler for mid-autumn

I have always been a great fan of Starbucks tumblers, and I've been collecting them from different years and different seasons. I also have the cups and tumblers from various cities and countries as I travel. Recently, in view of the mid-autumn festival (for those who are not familiar, it's a traditional chinese festival), I picked up several tumblers. I've been using this one for some time, and love it very much.
