So while reading a few other blogs and thinking up ways to make my blog more personal, I found a blog (I've forgotten which, crap!) that did a monthly "favourite 5 songs" post. I think its a brilliant idea and not to mention music is a really deep and personal thing to me especially when I come from a musical family (my whole family knows how to play at least one instrument each).
Okay, I'm starting to drag, sorry, haha anyway, these are my current 5 favourite songs and if this post is popular, who knows, I might just make it into a regular post.
Kana Nishino - Motto
Vocaloid (Kagamine Rin) - Meltdown
fripside - Only My Railgun
Yuna Ito - Trust you
The Gazette - Cassis
As you can see, my music tastes vary widely and it really depends on my moods, I could be listening to classical one moment and then rock the next. So these are my current 5 for the month... lets see if next month would be similar or different!

The make up that I use on a regular basis (row by row from the top left):
Bourjois Imperfection Concealer in 11 Beige Ivoire
Revlon New Complexion Loose Powder in Tranluscent #02
Gatsby Powdered Oil Clear Paper
YSL Everlong Mascara
Limited Edition Anna Sui Lipstick B in 01
Majorlica Majorca Honey Pump gloss in PK 133
The Body Shop's Christmas Edition Black Velvet Apricot Lipbalm
Kate Diamond-cut Eyeshadow in BR-2 & BR-1 (BR-2 is greyish black whilst BR-1 is more brown)
Spotlight Blemish Balm
Cyber Colours Puff Puff Blusher in Gold Bronze 02 (I use this as my bronzer)
Kate Gel Eyeliner and brush in BK-1 (my favourite eyeliner ever!)
Canmake Eyebrow Pencil in 04
Dolly Wink pencil in Brown 02
L.A. Girl Eyeliner in P626 White
The Body Shop blush in Raspberry Pink (I bought this very, very long ago, but its still good and it lasts really long)
Canmake Highlighter in 01
My lashes stuffed into my Dolly Wink case, the lashes come from everywhere like Daiso, Dolly Wink and Canmake.
My other make up collection, these are also in the 2 bags, but I don't use them as regularly that's why their seperated (from left of top row):
Anna Sui Super-Black Long Lash Mascara in 001
Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara
YSL Faux Effects Mascara
Super Quick Eyeliner * EX (I use this to line my lower eyelids sometimes, the pencil is purposely slanted for easier lining)
Fiberwig Paint-on False Lashes Mascara
Canmake Super Glitter Liner (awesome for phototaking, though it sometimes makes the whites of my eyes appear yellowish if I didn't have enough rest)
SKII Foundation in 420 (expensive but makes my skin oh-so-glowy and its really natural-looking, people sometimes think its my natural skin when I put it on)
Anna Sui Rouge G in 301
Anna Sui Rouge M in 350
Skinfood Raspberry lipgloss in 2
Eyetalk Double-lid glue
Bourjois Compact Powder in 71 Beige clair (for breakout days, as this has heavier coverage but still looks natural)
Went out with my dad yesterday to help him get a lounge suit for my cousin's wedding in Australias, too bad I won't be joining him! >3<
We ended up getting him a jacket and a pair of formal pants from G2000, a shop that's favoured by lots of office workers for their jackets and shirts which are of pretty good cutting and quality.
Its so different shopping for a guy, we zip into shops that have the stuff he needs and if they don't we never linger long enough to browse but just rush off to the next shop. Boring!!!!
And I've just realised that ever since I've gotten my can-can hat, all my outfits seem to revolve around it! Maybe I should move onto the scarf trend instead of getting stuck in a style rut!

Comfy yet chic, wat more could you ask for?
2. Watching Gal and Bijin Tokei
Great place for Japanese street-style inspiration
To me this trend is the epitome of spring
A local brand of bottled green tea, curbs my sugar craving and is an healthier alternative to sodas
5. Fake Lashes
My favourite is still Dolly Wink, but I love most lashes, will be trying out M.A.C.'s No. 7 soon
I love it, moisturizing but not too heavy and has a slight shimmer to it. My favourite part is that it doesn't change the colour of my lipsticks when I put it on. Too bad its a limited edition product.
7. Listening to Music while I dress up and put on my Makeup
Gives me energy and pumps me up for the day
I need heels badly as I'm really short, only 152cm or bout 5ft. 1"
Dresses, rompers, overalls etc. these make for stress-free dressing especially when I have no idea what to wear

A statement from the Japanese company says: "At Uniqlo Atrium we will offer our items such as 'UJ'- jeans [the] 'UT' - T-shirt brand and [the] 'Leggings Collection.'
"The opening of our first Russian store will be even more exciting with the Uniqlo collection created with fashion designer Ms. Jil Sander also on sale."
"We are sure the collection, so well received by customers the world over in Paris, London, New York and Tokyo, will also captivate our new customers in Russia."
Considering that Uniqlo is doing the opposite of what many fashion brands are doing now, which is to pull out of Japan, its pretty obvious that many people in this economy are choosing to buy more affordable clothes these days.

Was pretty bored today, so I went to hang out at Sab's workplace again. It's always fun to play with the ball-jointe dolls there and I still don't understand why people get spooked by them(they're just dolls, nothing else.. duh =.=).
Gossiped, ate sushi, did some cosplay discussion etc.... basically just spent the day with a good friend.... hahaha....
