Random Photobooth pictures taken over the past couple of days. I know this is a filler post by the way, I have just been feeling terrible about how I have been neglecting this space over the past month. Clearly the best way to bribe you back is to show you a ton of unglamorous pictures of myself, preferably with stress related acne (look no further than humungous zit I have on my forehead in the top right picture). Did it work? I hope it did. Hopefully you're all doing well on your exams, because personally I'm close to suicide. Gonna head out for a jog now to clear my head, and paint my toenails when I come home. It's good to take a break every now and then.
The picture above was taken during happier times (meaning before exams), in Milan right after I got my hair done. Not sure if I'll be able to update on a regular basis throughout May, but I'm gonna try my best. Sometimes you just gotta prioritise. But on a completely random topic, I actually have a piece of exciting news! This summer I'll be going on a trip throughout Europe with Sophie! We're gonna be covering a lot of ground, and visiting Istanbul -> Athens -> Crete -> Rome -> Ibiza. I know I should be saving up for other things, but you know... yolo. So if someone could just fast forward through May and jump straight into June, that'd be great.

Sometimes I feel like renaming my blog to "How you can wear item X in 100 different ways", because I'm pretty sure this outfit is alarmingly similar to the last one I posted. There is one item that's new though, and that's my white Converse! I posted a picture on Instagram a while back, asking people to choose between a pair of Converse or Vans, and it seems like my followers and I see eye to eye. Got them sometime around last week, and I've been living in them since that day. There's just something that makes Converse look amazing with pretty much everything, plus I love the fact that they show a tiny bit of feet/leg skin. Very spring appropriate as well, which is something I'm in desperate need of, as most of my outfits are lacking in the colour department.
Threw in a camwhore (what an unsightly word) picture for good measure, and because my face looks very strange in the top pic.
I have a small announcement to make. If you've been following my blog or my Formspring for some time, you'll know that it has been a longtime dream of mine to study in Singapore. Well, the course that I'm in entails taking your entire third year abroad. Students can choose between unis in France, England, Spain, China, USA and last but not least, Singapore. So the reason for this blog entry is that I want to inform you that I did indeed apply to a school in Singapore, and starting the beginning of autumn this year, I'll be enrolling into Nanyang Technological University as an exchange student. It feels weird, sort of surreal. Obviously I'm excited, but at the same time, a big part of it all feels incredibly bittersweet. Leaving behind loved ones is excruciating, and I'm not quite sure how I'll cope when I'm actually sitting half way across the globe, so far away from everything I've ever known.
Nonetheless, I'm eager/excited/anxious/scared, all at the same time. Buying that one-way ticket was so nerve wracking. But Singapore, now it's you and me baby. See you soon.
My entry titles are getting out of hand, I mean it's obviously too long. But enough of that, as you can see from the very colourful image above, I got myself a new wallet! My much awaited paycheck rolled in this morning, and it was a pleasant surprise to see that I got a lot more than usual! So to celebrate this, I went downtown to check out my favourite stores, tried on a lot of different things, but ended up just getting this little piece of cuteness heaven that I've wanted for a while now. It's not very spacious, but it's adorable and it's blue. Very exciting.
The title mentions "youtube obsessions", which refers to a couple of channels I've discovered lately. Normally I have limited interest in vloggers, mainly because I find it rather dull watching random strangers go about their everyday lives. But I realised that there's also another dimension to why I haven't developed any kind of interest in vloggers; the fact that a lot of vlogs are usually very poorly edited... and this is where annaleeandjesse, ohhaiclaire and fourthstreetflat come in. Apparently they're a group of friends who all happen to have a talent for videography and video editing, plus a great sense of fashion and awesome taste in music. Watching their videos have actually inspired me to do some random vlogging of my own, but I haven't mustered up the courage/found time for it just yet. In the mean time, you can check those three out if you find yourself with a couple of minutes to spare. Now I'm off to watch Big Momma's House II to see if it's just as good as the first one.

Nothing exciting today, just my usual combo of black jeans + black belt + random top. Hopefully my up and coming trip to Milan will give me a chance to revamp my wardrobe and make it slightly more spring appropriate. For jewellery I decided to throw on my ying & yang necklace, and I felt it added a nice touch. As they say, it's all in the details. Regarding the messy rat's nets that is my hair, I know it looks very unattractive in the first picture. I have come to realise that my new hairstyle requires a lot more attention than I'm willing to give it, but I guess that's the curse of having short hair; it looks nice but you have to spend time actually styling it. Just a small warning if anyone is in the mood for chopping off their luscious locks. I like it though, don't get me wrong, I'm just not used to doing anything else besides brushing it out in the morning and the occasional hairspray.
