Tim Burton Exhibition

Hi, all!
Morning from Sydney :)
I couldn't post because I was too busy organizing this trip.
But yeah, I am here to post about the Tim Burton Exhibition I went just before I left Korea.



Good thing we went early, it got super packed a bit later! They had people line up and wait to get it..
Tim Burton brought 700pieces of his art works out here.
I had no idea how many that was at first, but I am letting you know that my feet were started hurting when I went through half! hahaha
It's too bad they didn't let us take pictures us.
But I managed to take a few pictures in the hallway.


How adorable is this drawing?!

The most admired Halloween/Christmas movie :)


 

They had costumes from the first batman movie, too!
I thought that was pretty cool :)

I am gonna try to post a bit when I get a chance,
but if I can't, I will do it as soon as I get back.
Merry Christmas , everyone!

THE LITTLE BLACK JACKET in Seoul by Karl Lagerfeld



The Karl Lagerfeld exhibition has finally came to Korea!
The exhibition features more than 100 black and white images featuring some of the celebrities' faces from the world of fashion, art, film and music shot by Karl Lagerfeld and styled by Carine Roitfeld.
I noticed most of the faces but some of them I had to frown and look at the name tag to check who they were. But you know I am always open to learn more and at least this was fun stuff to study :)
I was so surprised by how a simple black jacket can look so diffrent when worn by different people.
From Alexa Chung to Kanye West, from Alexander Wang to Hyegyo Song (a Korean actress!; the girl in skate shoes above), from Alice Dellal (the new icon of Chanel, I love her punky vibe!) to one of my favorite models,Anja Rubik! It is a jacket for all. The jacket is absolutely timeless, ageless and genderless.
I really enjoyed his last photography exhibition as well, it was so nice to see his new project so soon.
It's free and you can take one poster home (you can choose one from Alexa Chung. Hyegyo Song, Alice Dellal and Poppy Delevingne) Aw, I got to choose two because I was there with my bf :) and I chose Alexa Chung and Alice Dellal! I believe it's till Dec 16th, if you haven't check it out yet (and of course if you are currently in Korea), here's the address!

Address: Beyond Museum
49-21 Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul
(Exit.9 of Cheongdam station on Metro line no.7)


Oh, I am posting a few pictures of what I wore for the exhibition.
It snowed a day before, the streets were icy and super slippery so I had to wear sneakers to be safe..

DIY: Bloody Lips Phonecase

I've been looking for a painting for my new phonecase..
I saw this cool painting on someone's instagram and thought, hmmm this could be my next painting! :)


The wrinkles on the lips were quite hard to paint but I truly enjoyed painting these bloody lips!
I used acrylic paint like the last time I painted the rottweiler and clear nail vanish to give it a nice shiny touch.


Now...what should I paint next? :)


Layers and More Layers!

Winter is no joke in Korea.
Last weekend was super super cold, I had to layer more.
This was my Friday date night outfit :) We watched Rise of the Guardians, it was so much fun!

One of my obessessions: Socks!

I love wearing sneakers,
so I became obssessive with socks to match with...
because you know when you wear sneakers, you dress casual,
I think nice colors or patterns of the socks add a little fun to the look especially in winter!

Here are some pictures of the socks that I bought recently :)



I will be posting about my other obssessions soon :)
What are your obssessions?

Givenchy for H&M?


Is this really happening? or not happening?
I heard Givenchy confirmed that it is a rumor, but MMM did that too before, right?
Versace collaboration was my favorite one, since then I was like meh..
But if Givenchy is doing this collaboration work, I am pretty sure this will beat Versace one.
H&M said they won't have any collaboration work till November next year
because they had so many this year.
I am going to secretly wish the collaborator for next year is Givenchy :D

The Jeremy Scott x Adidas Leopard Jersey Tracktop

I didn't really feel like dressing up last Sunday because I was kind of sick and going out for a casual brunch.
I wasn't going to stay out long and it wasn't too too cold,
so I matched my Jeremy Scott leopard Jacket with a goose-down vest I bought the other day :)

I quite like this sporty look on me sometimes, you know you can't dress up everyday.
The clothes like this keep you warm and cozy and still make you look stylish in a diffrent way!

Lush / You Snap The Whip

I was chosen as a beauty tester of the month for Lush!
Yay :D

The product I got to review is You Snap The Whip.
I got the package from Lush a few days ago,
I couldn't wait to get home and try it!!


I would explain You Snap The Whip is like body scrub + body butter than just body butter.
Basically what you do is to rub the bar over your damp skin and it leaves little exfoliators and gray liquid.
You exfoliate your skin with them.


The size is quite small, a little smaller than my palm.
It smells gorgeous, just like cherry + bubblegum to me (blackcurrant supposed to be haha)
and does exfoliate my skin well.
After using it, my skin was left lightly scented and silky smooth.
but I had to put another layer of body lotion on my elbows, knees and heels because my skin gets pretty dry during winter time.

I saw a lot of reviews about how quickly You Snap The Whip melts away.
But I've been using Lush products quite long time now,
I know some of the products (for examples soap bars, shampoo bars and body butters) you have to take good care (by keeping them dry and cutting them into small piece for them to last long) because Lush doesn't use preservatives on most of the products.
Fresh is their motto and I think they are doing a good job keeping their motto.
Anyways since You Snap The Whip has the quick melting aspect, I cut it into a few pieces and put it into a soap dish, then it was totally fine to use!

I've used it 3-4 times and 1/4 of the product is gone after that.
I don't have to exfoliate everyday, I think that would be too harsh for my skin.
Just 2-3times a week is enough.
So I believe one You Snap The Whip bar would last a little more than a month.

I have to say though that it makes a little bit of a mess, left grey splatters on my shower wall.
And price-wise, I wish lush was more afordable in Korea, You Snap The Whip is 19000won(USD18).

I think that this product is like marmite.
People like it, they love it and people don't like it, they hate it so much.
Personally I liked it a lot just wish it was less expensive like in other countries.

The Camel Coat

I've always wanted to get a nice camel color coat but somehow I always chose black over camel.
But this year, I finally found the right one for me!
It works as business casual look which I go for during weekdays,
and it's really easy to wear with jeans and sneakers on weekends too :)

Christmas Nail Polish Collection!



I bought these babies last Friday,
having so much fun playing with them :)
You know glitter nail polishes can go on top of different plain colors
and they give such nice finish!
I used to hate them because these glitters are pain in the ass when you want to remove, they won't come off!
But thank God, now we have peal-off base,
I enjoy using them :)
