Bits & Pieces #2

29 Jul 2014 | ×

Since starting up school again, I haven't been very active on social media, but I am over at Instagram trying to post daily in honor of my own post-a-photo-everyday attempt with #tokki365. Maybe I'll do weekly recaps here when I make time to post. Blogging just hasn't been a priority for me for so long that, I don't know what I should make posts about.. Also, I haven't had a good overall grasp of the cosmetic world for a few years now, and have lost a lot of my interest in nail polish and some major brands.

On another note, I do feel like the square cropping on the 'gram really takes away from photographs sometimes, so perhaps I'll include photos of how some of them were 'meant to be' and memorialize my posts that way. I had always wanted to do a 365 project one year as I have a terrible tendency not to post regularly, but I've been doing alright for about a [few months] into the new year now. Let's see how long this lasts, shall we?


post script. I immediately regretted taking on the daily posting endeavor after the first few days of the year, but I am trying to keep it up.

Icy Vibes

the bokeh from Mirrorball is always so pretty!

We got our first real snow day to start off this week and I felt like celebrating with white and icy makeup! Grey lips really do make me look more sullen than I already do, so I'm not sure how I feel about it, but it was fun nevertheless.

In terms of contouring, this was my first try using Kat Von D's Shade+Light Palette on its own (without a cream base) and it is soooo nice. Granted, I don't have much experience with various dry contour palettes, but the colors are so buttery and blendable that it almost makes me feel like contouring is easy (I've found it very challenging before).

Crisis Knight

So the first post of 2015 is this photoset from last year from my unpublished archives. I just recently found the list of products I had used for my makeup that day and finally decided to post the photos now.. I didn't like my makeup (and I still don't), but I mean, Batman. (•̀ᴗ•́)و ̑̑

Harley Quinn [ à la Jen Chae ]

Attending school again has kept me so busy and preoccupied that it's been a long time since I took the time to do something 'normal' for myself. I had been wanting to do a Harley Quinn look in time for Halloween, and then Jen [ of frmheadtotoe ] posted a tutorial that I really liked. You know it's been years that I've been following her? I've always loved her cute and bubbly personality. I think we'd get along if we ever met in person. Anyway, I had heaps of fun recreating her Harley and adding a few twists to it to make it my own. Hope your Halloween was fun and safe ♢♢♢

Hey there,

I've missed blogging, but I don't feel like writing anything out for a while longer.

Museum of Science and Industry

It's been a while since I've been touristy in Chicago. I should do it more often, this little trip was fun. These are photos from January 31st.

Before we made our way to Kending, we went to the bride's wedding banquet, F's father's hometown, wandered around a mall in Kaohsiung, and stopped by a man-made wetland. Kending was lovely; the weather was cool, the deserted beaches were gorgeous, and there's nothing like breathing in mountain air. Fair warning, this post is very photo heavy~
