Outfit | Blue Checks

These blue flats are perfect summer/spring flats. I love them though they are a bit of a bigger 6, they're still delightful and adorable. It's been such a long time since I've been able to take photos for this blog that I had an awkward time finding that rhythm that I used to have a few weeks ago. I ended up finding it towards the end, but it bothered me that it took me even that long. Thankfully, I don't plan on taking any breaks again anytime soon. Anyways, despite being in college, I have a sort of formula for what I wear to classes. It usually includes a dress/skirt, a cute top, a cardigan (for those cold classes), and cute flats/shoes. This is one of my more basic formulaic outfits, but I favour it because the skirt has a cute pattern, the colour scheme (blue, black, grey, and white) is probably one of my favourites next to red, black, grey, and white, the top is simple but has it's own little unique touches, and the flats just add to the eye-catching colour. The shades of blue I wore today include turquoise, ocean blue, mint blue, and then bright blue. Later in the evening, when it did get a bit nippy, I wore a navy cardigan. People say it's restricting to dress within a colour pattern, but I love it. I think it's fun and it's an interesting way to find how different colours work with eachother.

Outfit | Poppy Collars

It's been a while! This one's from a few days ago, before school started. I've been internet deprived since my laptop died. I was able to get gifted a 13 inch Macbook Pro thanks to my grandma and my aunty's boyfriend having a huge discount since he works as part of the Apple corporate team. I'm getting used to using it but so far, I love my Macbook. It's slimmer than my old HP laptop was and it is way easier in general to do anything.

Outfit | 21

So I turned 21 on August 15th aka yesterday. I may or may not have edited these photos while drinking some fine wine so they may or may not be oddly edited. With that out of the way...I wasn't anticipating doing anything exciting or crazy for my 21st, because I never do anything on my birthday. If I want to do anything, I usually have to plan it and I just don't see the point in celebrating another year closer to death so yeah (well that took a turn for the worst!) but this year I was sort of excited because my uncle bought me this amazingly fancy and gorgeous frock and I thought I would wear it out to lunch with my dad and some relatives. This dress is absolutely divine. It's lacey and soft and such a gorgeous shade of creamy peach. I love it. 

Turning 21 was interesting. People still got surprised that I turned 21 and one cashier at a Trader Joe's I went to, to pick up some wine and some other things, said he got drunk with his girlfriend when he turned 21. I was too embarrassed to say that I'm spending my 21 alone, watching Netflix, and talking to my cat (crazy cat lady status, here I come!) so I lied and said I went wine tasting. He said it was classy and I felt like less of a person because I lied and he was so nice. Ugh. But despite how boring my 21st sounds, I actually enjoyed it. I enjoyed the quiet company of my cat and sipping red wine dessert wine and writing. It was nice and I can definitely see why writers tend to steer towards light drinking while in writing mode. I did take a nap though and wake up with a huge headache which wasn't fun. But, bottom line, I don't think that to enjoy your 21st, you need to go out to every bar and get piss drunk. You can easily have a quiet night in all to yourself or plan an outing with friends. Copious amounts of alcohol aren't needed. Though, they do tend to make everything funnier. 

So, I am a year closer to death and I don't think I've changed A LOT but I have seen some differences in who I am now as opposed to who I was last year/last summer. The me now knows more about what I want, has a better understanding of people, has a better idea of what I want to do with my life, knows how to edit videos a lot better, is open to experimenting with different fashion styles and makeup choices, and has a very solid idea of who I am and who I want to be farther down the line in my life. I've lost a few friends (they didn't die, they just failed to mature and I didn't want to surround myself with people like that) and you know what? I'm not even sorry for losing them. I want to surround myself with people who know who they are and are able to mature and encounter conflict without reacting like a high schooler and unfortunately for those friends I lost, they failed to accomplish any of that. It sounds harsh, but I couldn't have that. Although to be fair, the first friend I lost threw our friendship away for whatever reason but I'm betting on maybe she wanted to be the cutest (and only) Asian girl in the room, which is sad because clothes may alter how someone perceives you, but your personality makes the outfit. Like if a girl is dressed in a cute dress and cute boots, my first thought is: ADORABLE until I see the scowl and the poor posture and it only worsens when she opens her mouth and it turns out she's rude and judgmental. Yeah. That girl suddenly goes from cute and adorable to leaving a bitter and gross feeling in me, like I had just eaten a rotten mango or something.

I'm a lot happier this year than I was last year.

Life | VidCon 2013


This past weekend I went to VidCon in Anaheim. My friend and I drove down to Southern California during Industry Day (Thursday). VidCon is a YouTube conference that was started four years ago by the Vlogbrothers, John and Hank Green. I went last year and absolutely loved it so of course, I went this year because I had made so many friends last year and the year waiting for this past year's VidCon. It spans four days with the last day taking place in Disneyland. As much fun as I had at this one, there were something around 13,000-14,000 people attending this year, majority of which were incredibly young and VERY loud and rude teenage girls. Now, I have no problems with fangirls, I'm one of them, but I do have many problems with fangirls who are rude, scream every two seconds ignoring where they are, and who have no problem with blatantly following their favourite vlogger into their hotel and even going so far as to trying to follow them to their hotel room.  That wasn't a problem last year and I believe it has to do with the fact that the Green brothers expanded the number so that more people could come, which is great of them and all but I think there should be some rules and things in the Agreement thing we have to accept when we buy tickets. I also think there should be an age limit for attendees like no one above the age of 18 should be allowed. I say this not to be ageist but because I noticed A LOT more parents and kids than last year and people I know who went previous years have agreed. I'm just complaining and I understand I may make a lot of people unhappy with what I said and you know what? I don't care. I don't think this is a thing for a bunch of underage kids to go to. Especially when the huge majority are rude. If you can't take the time to be courteous to fellow fans and other vloggers, then fuck right off. 

Moving on from that sour note, here are some pictures and some lame outfit pictures from my trip.

Wes Aderhold and Julia Cho (Wickham and Charlotte from "The Lizzie Bennet Diaries")

Tyler Oakley with Jack and Finn (JacksGap)

Jon Cozart aka Paint

Outfit Details: Navy Jumper (thrifted) | Striped T-shirt (thrifted) | Blue tights (Target) | Black oxfords (thrifted) | Black waist belt (thrifted) | Teddy Bear ears ring (Forever 21)

(Although if I'm being perfectly honest, I'm cheering for Sansa, Dany, and Margaery)

I think I look really cute in both pictures with TomSka hahaha.

Steam Powered Giraffe. HELLS YES.

Allison Paige (Gigi Darcy in "The Lizzie Bennet Diaries" and "Welcome to Sanditon") and I. She's too gorgeous and pretty, I can't even.

Kyle Walters (Ed Denham in "Welcome to Sanditon") and I. He's adorable, right!?

Joel Bryant (Mayor Tom Parker in "Welcome to Sanditon") and I. Joel Bryant is just, too amazing for words. He accepted my business card and we talked about ukulele and singing (which his wife does) and he was just such a cool and chill guy. Definitely one of my highlights from this meet-up.

Jason Munday and I. I couldn't find my friend to take a picture so he offered a selfie. I think next year, I'll just take selfies with everyone.

Kina Grannis! She's so pretty and adorable and talented and she called me cute! AAAAAAAH!

Jon Cozart and I. He was an absolute doll and his shirt was adorable. 

Mary Kate Wiles (Lydia Bennet in "The Lizzie Bennet Diaries") and I. She said she loved my hair colour. I may or may not have internally flailed.

AAAAAAAAAAAAH! Maxwell Glick (Ricky Collins in "The Lizzie Bennet Diaries") and I. He is my absolute favourite and I was so terrified that I had already missed him but then there he was, in front of my friends and I. He is so nice and so talented. Everyone should go to his youtube channel and SUBSCRIBE. No seriously, he's hilarious, dorky, has amazing taste in music, is adorable, and has a wonderful singing voice. 

Tom "Fae King" Milsom and I. He seriously reminds me of someone who'd be in the Fae as like some sort of prince or king. And he's SO tall!

Taken outside of King's Road Cafe in LA.

Outfit Details: Peter Pan collar floral top (thrifted) | Denim shorts (Forever 21) | Polka dot nude tights (Target) | Coral flats (Forever 21) | White Sunnies (Subblime) | [not pictured] Red cardigan (thrifted)

I almost bought this skirt but I can't justify spending $70 on a tutu. Plus, if something is more expensive than ModCloth (It's $60 on the site), there's a problem there. 

And lastly, a shot my aunt took of me during our lunch at King's Road Cafe.
