Summer Favorites 2017

Hi! Hi!

I always really like watching monthly favorites however, I'm not organized enough to do these monthly so I want to do them seasonally and share items that I've really been liking or enjoying. I don't know. Sorry, I know I've done a few 'favorite' themed posts recently but this one is kind of 'seasonal' so I kind of had to do it now...

Make Up 

Jill Stuart Glitter Eyeliner

I've had this for a long time and I had never used it (it was unopen at the time I found it) however it is amazing. Whenever I use glitter eyeliners I normally find that they can be drying on the eye however this is doesn't dry uncomfortably on the eye! It's just a really pretty glitter - it's not super strong however it's so nice for everyday. 

Etude House Big Cover Cushion Concealer in Illuminate 

This is a really sweet pinkish highlight that isn't too much. I really love highlighter however I'm not one for super over done strong highlight so this is perfect. I normally apply this to my hand then from my hand apply it to my face. 

Etude House Lucid-dreaming Highlighter in 01 Hawaiian

This highlighter is also pretty old and I used it for ages a while ago however I recently rediscovered it. This used with the cushion highlighter above gives are really pretty, soft yet defined highlight which isn't too much for every day.

Etude House Pink Skull Eye shadow in PK001

 Not the best 'Summer' pallet but I've really been liking and enjoying this. The colours aren't that dramatic or that different from each other but that's why I've been liking this. I don't have the types of eyes where I can get away with just one eyeshadow on my eyes however some days I don't want to look like I'm wearing heaps of shadows on my eyes so this pallet is perfect.

Etude House Play Ice Cream Pallet 

I'm not sure if this was a limited edition at the time or not. It's not on the global site anymore however I've seen it on other websites. This pallet has great for summer because it's a nice combination of pretty, bright colours and wearable neutrals. All the colours are really nice, the only let down is the pretty cool mint colour which is more of a glitter instead of a proper shadow.


Liz Lisa x My Melody Blouse in white

I've always liked this blouse however, it wasn't until it was really hot that I kind of really liked it. It's a bit of a baggier cut and the fabric is quite light so it's perfect for hot summer days. I'm not the kind of person who likes wearing super tight minimal clothing in summer no matter how hot it is so I prefer to wear something like this when it's hot.

Tralala Ribbon Shorts in Blue

Kind of a 'forgotten' or an unspectacular item in my closet however I really enjoyed those when it was really hot out. The light fabric was super nice on hot days and they kind of look like a skirt because they're so loose and floaty. Bonus is they have pockets. I really liked wearing these shorts with the above blouse for a simple but cute look that was perfect for warmer weather.

Liz Lisa overalls

I'm just gonna leave a picture here and not say anything about these at this point. 

Liz Lisa 'Luster' T-shirt in White

I just really liked wearing this with the overalls to be perfectly honest and I think that they pair well together. The outfit is super casual and easy to wear which is probably why I gravitated towards it so much over Summer


 I actually received this for free when I made an online purchase so I didn't purchase it. I really like this and I've worn it so many times over Summer - the little triangle is super discoloured but I really like it anyways so I don't care. It's also really comfortable and isn't too tight to wear. I mostly wore this with the overalls and the t-shirt above.

Okay! That's all everything for this post. It's super late cause lately it's been so rainy and cloudy so Autumn is definitely here. I actually have a few 'autumn' themed posts planned but we'll see if I do them lmao.

Thank you for reading!

My Unexpected Favorites

Hi! Hi!

This is a post similar to one I did here although the theme is a little different.
The theme for this weeks post is my unexpected favorites, so things I really like and enjoy wearing though I wasn't completely convinced when I ordered them if I would like them as much as I did or do.
I have to admit this was kind of hard to narrow down because obviously, I like all my clothes otherwise I wouldn't have them and it's not to say these are my absolute favorite clothing items either they're just items I maybe didn't think as highly of when I ordered them or I didn't think I would wear them as much as I do.
 And some of these items are a bit older so it's hard to remember exactly what I was thinking at the time of purchase.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy this post and you all enjoy it.

 Liz Lisa Floral Jumper in Deep Pink

Omg - this jumper. I received this in a fukubukuro (here) so I didn't necessarily purchase this particular item on my own however I really like it. It's a great jumper however. It's really soft and warm and the colour doesn't exactly go with everything but tbh, I like it so much I don't even care lol. 

with Liz Lisa skirt, Liz Lisa bag and Liz Lisa 17th anniversary boots in beige.

Liz Lisa Floral skirt

 Another Fukubukuro item which I also quite like! The colours and style are actually really easy to wear and pair with other items in my wardrobe so it's really great piece to just throw on. Bonus is it also looks quite nice with black tights (which I do need in winter).

 with, Liz Lisa Knitted cardigan in beige, Liz Lisa white knitted top, Liz Lisa Fringe bag in pink and Liz Lisa engineer boots in brown.

 Liz Lisa Overalls in blue

This is kind of a cheat item cause I did think I would like this however, I don't think I anticipated liking it as much as I do. I think over Summer I wore this at least once a week - I think at one point.. I wore this like three days straight. I think if I had the choice between these overalls and like... all my other dresses, I think I would choose these. Maybe. Probably not - please don't test me on that one.

 with Liz Lisa 'luster' t-shirt, Liz Lisa yellow bag and Liz Lisa knot wedges in yellow.

Liz Lisa Ribbon knit in white 

I really love this jumper - funnily it was originally released in spring however I normally wear it in winter. I love that it's a little bit longer and I can wear it with leggings or tight fitting jeans. Plus it's cute without being over the top cute so it's easy to wear on more casual days.

 with Tralala heart 2-way bag in black, Tralala corduroy pants in red and Tralala wedges in black.

Yesstyle hounds tooth skirt

 This was kind of an impulse purchase however I'm so glad I did. I really like this skirt because it's really easy to just throw on and go. I really like this for casual looks. All though, I will say, this skirt is cut horribly, I'm pretty sure it's meant to be a circle skirt however some parts are much longer than the other (which a slightly too short) normally it's okay I'll just twist it around so the shorter 'sides' are on my hips while the longer parts are in the front and back XD.

 with Forever New knit, Tralala 2-way bag in black, Simon de Winter Socks and Tralala wedges in black.

Liz Lisa x Yui Kanno dress in Yellow

Tbh, another cheat. I kind of new I would like this dress however... I didn't think it was going to be as nice as it was. It fits me really well and it's such a flattering cut and the length is not too short. The fabric is really nice and it's a good dress to just throw on and go.

 with Liz Lisa cargo jacket and Tralala ribbon wedges in beige.

I'm not sure if these post worked out the way I thought it would, but I hoped you enjoyed it non-the-less.
I think a lot of these are more casual items but I guess for every day more casual items are more appropriate.

Thank you for reading!
