- City Walker / Croatia + Sweden / Love Hunter -

By Cindy A.


 I had my solo trip to Zagreb, Croatia and Stockholm, Sweden in September this year and it was amazing! Tho alone, but i was never bored or lonely because there were so much to see and explore. I didnt really have a list of itinerary planned ( im really not that kind of tourist, lazy too ) Rather than visiting the popular ' tourist spots ' as the musts, i prefer just walking and roaming around the city by feet and look at the architectures, observing the local people and their dressings and mannerisms on the streets, feeling the vibe and culture of the city life. You would discover many little surprises along the way that make your trip so worthwhile more than insisting to visit just some specific famous museums or landmarks that you ' should ' see or regret. Well thats for me! And then capture these things down in images to remember them all my life. But of course, shopping is a must for me. :)

. Feels Like Hundred Years Of Solitude .

By Cindy A.

 




 . Oversized Coat and Leather Shorts - Topshop . Grey Sweater - Cheap Monday . Burgundy Red Beret - H&M . Clemency Boots ( with heels ) - Dr. Martens . 

 Its getting colder each day in this little town where i live in Taiwan. It had been raining non-stop for the last 2 weeks ( depressing i know ), and finally i see a little bit of sunshine today :) Its nice to spend some quiet and quality time with my family now, after all that craziness in Europe for most of this year ( school, work, beach, booze, work, clubs, adventures XD ) My lifestyle can be so drastic from time to time, sometimes i over-piled myself with so much work with crazy deadlines plus after-school fun and adventures with friends, and sometimes like now, i am almost living like i am retired, passing my time in some countryside. Although this can be a little too quiet and slow for me, but i think this is a right time for me to take a short break and learn how to relax and listen to my mind, body and soul with just myself, alone, away from all the muchness of the city life i have accustomed to... pretty much all my life. 

Its just that, i miss him. So much.

 Finally something girly, dolly with a touch of lady-mixed-cuteness! I don't really wear cute retro/vintage dresses so often but i really like this dress a lot and decided to give it a go, something different from the other usual outfits i wear most of the time. I love the design of the simple folds and also the color, light denim baby blue! Boyfriend is saying that i look like a grandma in that but i dont care :p Anyway thats the style i am going for anyway - vintage but with a twist of modern cuteness. Haha. I dont wear fake eyelashes often too, simply becos im actually not very good at putting them on, always taking a longer time than other girls - i suppose. And im lazy. But its fun to play with it from time to time, who doesn't want to own beautiful thick and long eyelashes like a doll? :) Also i just want to say im happy to receive the comments and emails from you girls telling me what you want to see more on my blog, i will try to share as much as i can!

 Haha this is indeed a huge chunk of pictures for one post i have here! Not a make-up professional, just someone who loves dolling up and happy to share my process here with you guys! The kind of make-up i would wear with this style of clothes; something hip, casual chic and fun! Something interesting and colorful ( but not over the top! ) to lift up your mood in these grey winter days. Do you like this? If you do, i will try to blog similar posts on different kind of make-ups i wear in various style of clothes! And thank you guys for such lovely comments and emails, i really appreciate them! Loveee youuu.

! Its Been Quite A Journey !

By Cindy A.

I can't believe i am typing this right now, on this platform, in this blog, again. I know, i have been away for too long, frankly admitting that i wasn't a professional blogger at all for the past nine months. But that also made me realised that it wasn't really my intention to be one in the first place. I started this blog ( the old one ) when i began a new chapter of my life when i was twenty one, i blogged about my relationship, work and life in general. Then suddenly everything changed when the blog was getting the attention more than i expected after i joined lookbook and chictopia. Those were the short-lived but very pretty and exciting one two years in my life. I was doing so many things, not to mention how busy i was already with my real job - motion graphics designer. Later, i started to travel so much that now when i think back, it all felt like a dream - that came true. Im truly blessed and grateful for everything. Milan, London, Barcelona... Paris. I lived in these places. I'm not saying i didn't work hard for all these and in fact i was going through many difficulties to be staying in some of these wonderful cities. I am not a rich brat that have support from the family, i am like most of everyone else, i worked my ass off to be able to do what i did. But i am still a lucky girl who is thankful for both the good and bad things that i had been going through, it just made me a stronger person now. 

And if you are reading this now, i thank you too. As i would never expect anyone to be still following me after such a long hiatus in this blog. I guess i just wasn't inspired to be blogging so much anymore, i still love the things i loved: fashion, food, movies and football etc. But i just chose to focus most of my free time from work on the ' real ' life that i was enjoying so much when i was in Barcelona. The school, the friends, the beach, the clubs and boozes... the list goes on. It was so great! 

So why am i here now? I don't know, i guess i do miss blogging ( whenever i want to ) without obligations. Thats why i never really left, because i know someday i will be back again and for sure i know i will not have as many readers as before. But i wouldn't worry about that because then i would not even take a break from blogging in the first place, well if thats whats so important to me. I will continue to blog even if i am my only reader. But then again, i appreciate you people who are still here or was waiting for my return, thats really nice of you! 

I think i will want to share some of my pictures when i was in Barcelona, Zagreb, Stockholm and Paris. Those great moments.

I miss this blog, i miss you girls ( and guys ) and i am feeling inspired recently, what should i blog about?

 Cream Purple Sweater - Sheinside / Leather Dress - Oh Poupee / Leather Tote Bag and Sneakers - Seoul 

I want to take this time to thank all the people who have helped me in my life, making it easier for me when i needed a helping hand, needed a push and gave me plenty of care and love when i was most discouraged and down. No amount of Thankyous are enough to express my gratefulness. My family, friends and even acquaintances... that made me believe that there is something worthy to live for - love. :)

  HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEARRRR ! 






  Sweater - Sheinside / Sneakers - Seoul, Doota Shopping Centre / Clutch - Gift / Bike - Mummy's :D 





  Wish you guys have a blissful and peaceful 2013 :) So i'm wearing red for the occasion, and this color means 'lucky' in our beliefs. Lovely chinese new year decoration in every corner around the town and 24/7 fireworks going on with plenty of good food... this is how Taiwanese people celebrate. Of course, i just chopped off my hair too... a new beginning. So light, i'm loving it so much!
