Getting Ready for Summer (Topshop & ASOS Haul)

My most recent purchases will show how ready and excited I am for summer! Everything I’ve bought has been from the Petite category of Asos and Topshop and I don’t know why I haven’t been buying from that category because the fit is just perfect on me. Regular sized items usually fit me well and the only issues I have are with the length of jeans, hence my old username idreamofperfectjeans. I wish all stores would be more considerate to us vertically challenged humans and have a Petite Section. Shall we start a petite-tion? lol! 

Story behind this beautiful Asos Dropwaist Floral Dress was that I have been eyeing this piece since I saw Zoella wearing it in another colour. I waited awhile before purchasing it as it was quite expensive and when I decided I really wanted it, it was gone BUT they had it in another colour. I kept going back to the site for about a month deciding whether I should get it and when I checked a few weeks back it was 50% off and without thinking twice, I clicked away ’til I got my invoice from ASOS! Good things come to those who wait lol! So proud of myself for waiting and I think i deserve, not a pat on the back, but another dress…kidding! Unfortunately, it’s back to its original price but it is a lovely dress with good quality material. Discounted or not, you will not regret getting this!

This Topshop Slip dress comes in so many colours and even in printed ones. It reminds me of the scene in Clueless where Cher had a white Calvin Klein dress on and her dad said it looked like underwear lol. This dress is so easy to wear. Fuss free, Would look great with layering too.

Breton Cropped Top from Topshop. Also comes in Red.

Topshop Highlighter in Sunbeam and cream blush in Head Over Heels (both sold out on the website). My photo doesn’t do justice to how great the colours are of these two products. I’ve owned a Sunbeam highlighter before and it just gives you a glowing fresh look. I reckon it would look even better on tanned skin.

Round framed Sunglasses from ASOS. I got them in both black and white. The white ones are also sold out though :(

Boyfriend Jeans and Heatless Waves

I love Selena Gomez so I decided to try Meredith Foster’s, also known as StilaBabe09on YouTube, tutorial on how to achieve Selena Gomez’s Heatless Waves. All you’ll be needing is an elastic band and sea salt spray. After washing my hair last night, I braided it and kept it overnight and in the morning I let my hair loose and sprayed my KMS sea salt spray and that was it! Easy as!

Internet Best Friends (YouTube)

When you move to another country and leave everyone and everything you've ever known all your life, it just gives you room to discover new things and in my case, I have discovered the lovely world of YouTube.

YouTube just used to be a site where I could watch the funniest or most ridiculous videos that have gone viral of random people, but over the last 2 years, it has been my source of good and happy vibes :) Just so we're clear, I do have a life and have real and actual friends to hangout with here in Auckland haha!
I don't have a channel and I don't make videos on YouTube but it I do follow a number of YouTubers that have sort of become my "friends" and by that I mean I feel like I personally know them already because I watch their videos every single day...sadly it's a one-way-friendship kind of thing haha! I get excited every time my favourite YouTubers have new videos and I especially love their vlogs and hauls. These wonderful Youtubers have emanated such an encouraging vibe in their respective channels and it truly amazes me how they can make a positive difference in people's lives by merely uploading videos for us to watch and immediately inspiring us to be the best version of ourselves. Another wonderful thing about them is that they make people feel that they are not alone and that it's normal to go through ups and downs in life.

So if you're feeling a bit down today, I have linked a few of my favourite Youtubers' channels. Go check them out and they just might brighten up your day!

Sidenote: Watching the Vidcon 2013 vlogs got me all giddy to put this post 4am :))

Everything Will Be Alright

There was nothing to do today so my boyfriend and I had a quick drive around our suburb and found this beautiful quaint spot. Everything was so serene and it was a great place to just sit, think, and not worry about anything.
