Favorites of October TwentyTwelve + Fashion Haul!

Finally I'm back with my Favorites of October TwentyTwelve!!!! 
I'm aware that I haven't done one for a while because, like some Beauty gurus would say, I haven't try out new things in that particular month. 
Now it's been what... 6 months that I haven't tried new products until now haha :P

So here are my favorites of the month! Enjoy!

  1. TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray: TRESemme is finally sold in Thailand! I've heard tons of goodies from this product for many many many years but it was never possible to get it in Thailand until just recently! I've been using this product every single time I wash my hair! I've been using other brands' heat protector spray but they are all very dissatisfying!! Such waste of money T^T This product is going to be one of my Holy Grail must have items!!! The price (which is about 389baht) will be my best friend someday! XD Just briefly wanna give a tip if you use this product: I like to spray this heat protector right after I wash my hair. Comb my hair with my finger then wrap them into a towel to keep the warm temperature. That way I can prep my face before blowing my hair dry.  
  2. Urban Decay Naked 2: Duh, I know that I'm quite late with this product. But there is really a good reason why I never thought of buying it. I really thought that I was allergic to their eyeshadows!!! My eyes are super duper sensitive and so I usually get something swollen on my eyes. But after I used Naked 2 a couples time, nothing happened :D 
  3. VS Sassoon Ceramic 32mm Instant Heat Iron: I've been using this curling iron almost everyday since I've started working. I love the combination of my curling iron and my heat protector :) 
  4. Benefit Porefessional: this is actually my second tube. I had the old packaging. This product does wonder! I only apply this on my T-Zone (nose, forehead) and cheeks. 
  5. Koji Eye Tuck Tape: I love this tape because you can't see the tape. BUT it's soooooo hard to apply! Impossible for me to use this everyday >.< I can't get my eyelids right everyday. 
  6. Daiso Double Eyelid Tape: I use this tape everyday and every night :D I use the blue one because it has this black eyeliner mark on the tape. What I like to do is cut that black mark before I apply because I feel that the tapes are too large :/ This tape is very very affordable too! 60 baht only!! 
Alright, that's it for my favorites! But I'm not ending this post without a little Fashion Haul! :D 
These are what I just bought yesterday, really happy with my new goodies!!! 

So after a few visits at H&M, I finally decided to buy something XD 
  1. Basic Black T-Shirt: I had to go back to change the size today >.<
  2. Creamy Sweater 
  3. Basic Grey skirt: I never thought of buying these basic before because I never knew how to layer clothes before! XD
  4. 10 pieces of hair tie only for 99baht!!!! SO CHEAP!!! And I love them! I can definitely make ponytails now! XD I hate those boxes placed right around the queue...all items are so tempting!! They just wanna rip our wallets so bad!! 
My friend and I also paid a visit to the newest Uniqlo at Siam Paragon branch :) Luckily they got special price for some items! I bought 2 basic lacey tank tops only for 190 baht EACH!!! The normal price is 390baht. I picked size Medium because Uniqlo sizes are really unpredictable.

Finally wanted to share my all-time favorite Prada bag :) Thank you mommy for this reward for my first job! <3<3<3 

Okay, let's end this post with my most inspiring quote I found this week. This week, I've been reflecting a lot about myself, my life for all the things I got recently. 

Before I started working at my first job, I was helping out my parents a lot. Like driving them to hospitals or deal with private stuff with my mom. So I didn't get a lot of chances to enjoy my life before I go to work. I didn't have time to meet my friends nor shopping. 
For the past week, I finally....realized how grateful and blessed I am. I never actually thought about this deeply before. I wish I realized this earlier but since I'm still young...... It's not too late. After working at my first job for 10 days now, I don't really get to spend a lot of time with my parents in a day. Since I'm still living with them and our maid quit, I feel that I still need to do something at home in return. Show my gratitude and appreciation. 
My mom have been teaching me housework duties since I was a child but I realize how selfish and stubborn I was. But i understand that my attitude and behavior are understandable. They can't be undone. So now that I understand my actions, I've been trying to find the right ways, the right path to correct myself to become a better person. And those people who I feel are bad influenced or bad doings to me, I have to get rid of them. That's all I can say for now. 

Sorry if the last part is boring but since it's my blog, I think I can share things like that from time to time :) But I also hope that it can help to some of you who are in a similar situation. 

Okay see you guys next post! :D

Slice-of-my life: First job OOTD & redefining happiness

So since I graduated, holding a Bachelor degree in Communication Management, I luckily got a job at a small company very shortly. It was introduced by one of my closest friend from high school. She's also my neighbor since then. Hopefully, once I get my own income, I will be able to treat her and show how much I appreciate for her help!

Below, you can see my OOTD I wore to work. Only 2 OOTDs because I started in the middle of the week. I had to wear double layers of jackets because the air con is quite cool by the end of the day. 

OOTD #1 (left)
  • Blue tank top from Topshop
  • Green tank top from CPS (CHAPS)
  • Grey jacket from CPS (CHAPS)
  • Black jacket I got from HK long time ago
  • Patterned leggings from Uniqlo I recently bought 
  • Black shoes with studs from GUESS 
  • Necklace from Forever XXI (I think) 
OOTD #2 (right)
  • Pink shirt from Jaspal 
  • Black jacket from CPS (CHAPS) > you can't see it here because it was a very tight jacket. I was scared to get cold at the office, but it didn't help at all. I was still cold = =" 
  • Brown cardigan from Pull & Bear
  • Black skirt from Siam night market 
Finally, I wanna share my today's OOTD. A nice sunny Sunday, great feeling, suitable outfit! :) 


  • Long floral dress from Platinum Fashion Mall
  • Denim sleeveless jacket from CPS (CHAPS) 
  • Straw hat...Don't remember whether I bought in Thailand or Singapore.
  • Rose gold watch from Michael Kors 
  • Two gold bracelets > one was bought from my mom and the other one was given by my grandma 
  • Rings, some were given by my uni friends. That heart ring on my ring finger, I have no idea how or where I got it. I found it t my old house XD
I wanna share my office desk arrangement too! I think this was taken on my first day at work. I had to borrow my boss' computer and my colleague's iPad because I didn't know I had to bring my computer :X 
To be honest, I wasn't expecting to get any work on my first day at work! I never experienced that before at my other internships! XD So that's why you see that "100 ways to Happiness: A guide for busy people" by Dr. Timothy J. Sharp. on my desk. But I never had the chance to read it since then. Only before bed time, I can find 5-10 minutes to read 1-2 pages. 

Just now, I was reading one particular page: "6. Alter Bad Habits"
But the end quote is very inspiring > "Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises." by Demosthenes, 384-322 BC, Greek statesman
The reason why this quote caught my eyes is because I've been whining about how my other uni friends are lucky to get into those "big" companies. I would also imagine their lives looking much better than mine.
But after I read this quote, I realized that I'm also lucky to have a job right now. I don't have to worry about job hunting for a year after I graduate. I was lucky. So why should I keep complaining about it right?
Like my close friend I met yesterday told me that when firms look at your resume, they look at your work experiences. Whether you have interned or worked at various companies, it doesn't matter if it's big or small firms.
So why worry about my future? Someday, my life will be better, greater. Someday, I will be a better, greater person than I am today. That's all I should keep telling myself every day. Never give up! I was lucky and I'm very grateful where I am today.
Thank you! (you know who you are, both of you! I don't think I should say your names in public!)

Lastly, I just wanted to share this picture of my student ID at Waseda Language and Culture School. I never took Japanese language seriously. I've always taught myself Japanese since I was a teenager. I watch, listen, read Japanese by myself. I had a Japanese tutor before and she disappeared at some point.  But now, I'm attending this Japanese class at Waseda Language and Culture School for a 3-month period. It's definitely "serious" this time because we get tested every week and have final exam at the end of the course. There are surely things that I wouldn't never know myself! Like writing each letter in the proper way is hard! Never crossed my mind before XD 
By the end of the course, I will find out whether I can move on to the next level! Will sure do! 

So that's it for this post! Both a bit of Fashion and slice of my life XD 
I hope it wasn't too boring. I just felt like writing my thoughts on my blog. It may sounds nonsense or hard to read at some point but I hope it's understandable! sorry about it :p

See you on my next post!
Have a good sunny Sunday!

Last month, I paid a visit to one of my closest uni friend at one of the biggest shopping centre in Bangkok near her home. 

Mega Bangna just recently opened like 1-2 years? 

Since it's very far from the city and my home, I feel its inconvenient for me to go check Mega Bangna. I have heard from my mom and some other friends that the shopping mall is far and at that time, not many shops were opened yet. So I decided to wait for the right time when, hopefully, all shops are opened. That way, I don't have to waste another trip to see all shops :) 

Also, I didn't know how to physically get to that mall since I don't know the way, if I decided to drive. I don't trust my Google Map on my iphone! So I decided to take the BTS then the shuttle bus service. The BTS trip was very quick but....when I took the shuttle bus from the train station to the mall, it took me at least 10-15 more minutes!!! That's how far it is!!! 

Anyway, the day actually went well! I had a lot of fun going around IKEA. It feels very nostalgia. It used to be one of my favorite place to go with my family back then in France. It's been over 10 years since I last went to a IKEA! 

Lunch time with my uni friend before going into IKEA :)

That kitchen and that living room will be my future home inspirations! 

Some random stuff I found cute or funny ^^"

It's so FUN playing at IKEA when you're still a little kid! *jealous*

More random cute stuff in Kid's section

Finally time to SHOP SHOP shop! I bought a scarf hanger! XD 

Visited a new imported shop from Australia, recommended by my uni friend :) 

Lol their stationaries are so funny XD 

Alright, this was a quick short post to share my little day at Mega Bangna and IKEA with my uni friend XD I would definitely go back to it IF the mall was near my home lol I guess going there once in a while can definitely be a good change of environment hehe :)

Fashion and Hair products Haul! 

I've been searching fashion and beauty items for this Fall trends :) 
Here what I've come up so far:

  1. White top from Uniqlo for 390BAHT ONLY!!! SALE period at Uniqlo now! :D 
  2. Brown cardigan from Pull & Bear for 790baht  > I got a size M because they ran out of size S. But I like the oversized feeling :) very very girly! hihihihiiii 
  3. Black pants with floral patterned from Zara for 2,990baht > It's super duper expensive because of the pattern T^T But I like it though! It's really for this Fall Fashion Trend 2012! And look at the detail of the button below!  

Another day of shopping, this time I went to Central Lardprao with my mom. We just wanted to explore the renovated Central Lardprao and also, a good change of environment and atmosphere from typical shopping centres in the heart of the city. 

So here are what I've got.....2 plaid patterned leggings from Uniqlo for 790baht each! It's definitely a must have for this Fall! CHEAP too! 

Oh! And I also added my TreSemmee Heat Protector Hair Spray that I bought earlier this month and I forgot to included in the first picture ^^" 

I have heard a lot of good feedbacks from beauty gurus online and since now TreSemmee is available in Thailand, I had to try it! My verdict? LOVE IT! So soft and smooth! :D 

Alright that's it for this OOTD and Fashion haul post! 

What do you think of my Fall Fashion picks and OOTD? 

I hope this will help you to start thinking about colors, patterns for this Fall Fashion Trend 2012!
