black & leopard

This is a very due OOTD post.

Come and take a walk on the wild side ~ Lana Del Rey
 I wore this outfit to the mall I think about a month ago and just been too lazy to write about it. Sorry :/
The first part of the video was filmed by me and the mall segment was filmed by my little brother who has no camera experience. I think next time I will tell him to stick with one camera angle!! :) It was fun and kind of awkward being filmed in the mall! Luckily it was very quiet that night. I am brave though, and I hope to do it again soon!!!

I also want to point out that this outfit is very figure flattering for someone who wants to hide their stomach area. I wish I remembered to mention that in the YouTube video but I may do more videos that explain what items will flatter someone with the same body type as me! :)

Enough talk & more PICTURE TIME!

Behold: me and my messy room!!

Gifts for meeee pleaseee! #2

Yet another late post sorry. Here are some things I received as Christmas gifts from family and also some gifts I bought for myself recently because of all the sales! hahah ;D This is just a filler post as you can see...ahem...

COACH: Cashmere Gloves with beautiful 3D bow details from my Godparents <3

 My aunt and uncle (my "godparents") always buy me gifts every Christmas. For the last three Christmas' they have bought me items from COACH. They bought me my first COACH wristlet 3 years ago, which was my first ever 'designer' accessory/purse item! Now I love COACH and you will see later what I bought for myself from there too! These gloves are sooo soft and luxurious. I absolutely love the gold button detail and the coloured bows <3 I have yet to wear them because I'm afraid of ruining them, and I also want to save them for a nice event/outing!
CONAIR: curling iron gift from my older bro and sis-in-law <3
 Ok. My bro and his wife didn't actually pick this for me. They had bought me a gift card for Wal-mart and I decided to buy this! I needed a new curling iron because the one I had was originally my mom's from the I hope you understand that any curler is better than the one I was using!!! haha I used this once so far, and it heats up super fast and it worked very well. I hope to use it more often, and I really like that it's ceramic.
 With the remainder of the wal-mart gift card, I bought three movies seen above.  I never seen 'Sky Captain' so I decided to try it out for only $3.97! It was an awesome movie and I'm glad I bought it! 2nd is 'Arthur' with my future hubby, Russell Brand <3 love this movie!!! I bought it on sale for $10.00! 3rd is both of the 'Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants' movies in one disc-set which I bought for only $5.00. I never buy double disc-sets but since I had only seen the first movie, I decided I would buy them this way just in case the 2nd movie was shitty...which it wasn't after all. I actually would say I liked the second one better although both are good overall.
Le Chateau- black military style boots $35.00 (on sale)
 Yet another pair of boots. I have always loved military style-ANYTHING! When I saw these I had to get them and luckily they were 30% off of $60.00 but originally they were over $100! Good deal :) They are super sexy and I hope to have a outfit post with these in a future blog post!
COACH: red Satchel $70.00 (on sale)
 I love red and I have been dying to buy an over-the-shoulder purse for a very long time. I saw some of my gfs have these satchels from COACH and for the longest time I debated if I should spend a lot just for a purse. I finally bit the bullet and purchased one at the COACH factory outlet near where I live. I received 30% off when I entered the store, and I knew I was going to get one of these with it!This is actually the first designer purse/accessory I have every bought on my own :)
New Balance: exercise clothing $35.00 (on sale)
 New Balance (a high-end athletic store) was having a 60% sale on everything and it was my first time ever stepping into their store! Now I will go to the gym in style ;D
Zellers & Wal-Mart: exercise bras $11-15.00 ea
More exercise stuff I bought myself to get me motivated to workout and go to the gym more often!

Nothing else to say. I have been working a lot and never have time to go out and dress up lately :( I hope to have better posts soon!!!

My Skin Lifesaver !

I have the worst facial skin ever! It's really dry and I always get red spots and blemishes. Part of the reason is my fault because I touch my face too much when I break out. I just can't stand seeing a pimple on my face :( Also, a lot of the time the pimples are ingrown and are soooo painful I cannot bear leaving it alone! After I usually deal with them (the wrong way of course), they dry up and I get flaky skin. It also leaves large red blemishes! *tear* Recently, my brother (of all people) suggested this night moisturizer by The Body Shop that helped him diminish his acne. He actually gave it to me and ever since my skin has felt so moisturized and less dry. I use it with a day moisturizer by The Body Shop and I noticed my skin has improved so much!  I can say now I hardly even get acne because I think the Vitamin E in both products prevent it. I now only seem to break out when that time of the month is near which is better than breaking out all the time! I also haven't had any ingrown painful pimples since I have been using these products. They are now my day/night skin lifesaver <3 My bro said they are expensive but it's definitely worth the money and I WILL  purchase more in the future.

night and day

my day cream-use a light layer! (Next time I will buy the one for dry skin)

my night cream-use a light layer!

If you have tried these moisturizers or plan on trying them in the future, let me know of your skin results!! I hope they help others' skin as much as they helped mine :)

VIP @ The Bank

My friends and I from work decided to try VIP bottle service at this club called "The Bank." This post is long overdue as this event took place the Thursday before Christmas Eve! lol sorry guys...I'm such a procrastinator!It's kind of funny that we went to the club on a Thursday but we're cool like that ;D

It was my first time going to a club as a VIP and it was overall a medicore experience. I feel like it's so overpriced for bottle service when you can get the same bottles at the LCBO for half the club's price. I guess people like bottle service at a club for the experience though. I did feel pretty cool being VIP though because we got our own booth and it was nice to sit from all the dancing once in awhile in our own private area :) We all split the cost for the alcohol but it sucked because I didn't really get a say as to what kind of alcohol we would be sharing. Everyone wanted TEQUILA...and if you read my Halloween post you would know I never want to drink that stuff again! Nonetheless, we all split on Tequila and I drank it unwillingly because I wanted to get my money's worth :( ewwwww... We also got greasy pizza and 3 drinks to mix the alcohol with for being VIP. I was expecting a much better choice(s) for the food part but I guess people like greasy pizza at the club...

Later that night, I asked one of the guys in our party if he would buy me a rum & coke from the bar because I wanted to avoid drinking more of the tequila. I guess he was already drunk because when I came back from dancing I saw a large bottle of dark rum at our table and I was like "WTF, where did this come from and who bought this???!!" I asked one of the waitresses who brought it and she told me that my friend (who I thought was at the bar getting my mixed drink...) BOUGHT IT RIGHT THERE!! It had to be atleast $100!!! I felt bad and started downing the rum too!!

Needless to say, I mixed two hard liquors and ended up having a terrible end result by the end of the night. It's kind of funny when I think about it now but also very gross & embaressing haha >.< All the dancing wasn't enough for me to sober up and I got really sick. I remember I went to sit at our booth and I looked down and then...*BLARGH* I threw up all over the  floor...:( :( Then the two security guards came and escorted me out LOL. I can't believe I was KICKED OUT of the club! I felt pretty bad and was crying so much outside in the cold but my friends came outside and made sure I was okay to go home.

I had an awesome time dancing with my friends, despite my mishap. Luckily I didn't have any idiots try to dance up on me :) Here are some pics from that night!

me and baby Tegan <3

I was the only white girl in the group so here I am trying to be asian <3

All of us at our VIP booth :)

I thought this pic was funny b.c if my hand had moved there could have been a special shot;D
