Hakuna Matata

Here we are again, bidding farewell to 2013 and welcoming the new year ahead. All in all, it has been a year full of new experiences and countless unforgettable (and maybe slightly regrettable) memories. Thank you to all my wonderful followers for allowing my blog to grow tremendously this year!

Oh I had possibly the worst day in my entire life so far yesterday. Let's just say discovering that you've been a victim of fraud isn't nice. What a way to end the year eh? Not doing much on NYE this year.. just playing Pokemon and GTA with the bro and Tom. Staying in for once perhaps? Ugh, that's like the number sign that says we are finally getting old and not wanting to go to crowded places just to countdown. Perfectly fine with staying in and welcoming the year ahead on the couch. Okay, there might be drinks involve later but at least I'm not suffocating to death trying to wedge my way through large crowds.

And nothing exudes positivity like the phrase hakuna matata!

All seeing eyes..


Nothing more than strangers
Passing by out on the street
Memories are fading though
It's only been a week
All the little things are gone
The things we used to be
Nobody could take us down
There was only you and me

And without you I can't be
You're the universe to me
You're the air in my lungs
You're the fields where I run
You're the sky where I'm floating

Don't want to be a stranger
Want to be the one you need
I can be your world, your life
Your lover, all for free
All the little things come back
The things we used to be
Nobody can take us down there
It's only you and me

5 more before new years

I hope everyone have had a safe and joyful christmas. I'm very grateful for Sophie and her family for letting me stay with them over Christmas here in Liverpool. Finally experienced proper christmas for the first time! Oh I also had an amazing christmas dinner. Which reminds me, I better be hitting the gym after this holiday is over..
And because it's christmas and everyone should be receiving gifts.. I'm giving away 5 extra free pairs of eyewear to my lovely readers courtesy of Firmoo.com! And this time, there won't be a contest or anything like that.. I'm just randomly picking from my existing followers list :) Why? Because you guys always make my day with your cute little comments!

Winners are as follow and will be contacted immediately (yep, immediately! Do drop me a comment with your email address if you didn't receive anything) after this post is up. Congratulations to..

Will be updating again soon. Perhaps it will be a more personal/inspirational post next.. I miss doing those but I really do need more than 24 hours a day. Again I say, if you want more little peeks into my life.. follow me on Instagram!

Post birthday giveaway!

Well, it was my birthday yesterday! I am officially 19! Love the picture below that Matthew sent me from NY :) he wrote happy birthday in the snow..
Do I feel older? NO. Well, I've had a pretty decent celebration this year. I love all my gifts though.. It ranged from proper partying to getting a giant teddy bear all the way from HK! Love love love it but I'm really stressing about where to put all my gifts. My room in my hall is only that big :/ I have way too much stuff as it is and I really have no idea how I'm gonna put all those extra clothes..

Never mind, I'll find a way I suppose.
JUST LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THAT! :3 oh and my brother and his friends made me such an amazing cake! I still don't want to eat it yet cause it's way too pretty..
MEGA LOVE FOR ALL OF YOU WHO MADE MY DAY!

Special shout out to you grey eyes ;)

Firmoo + All black OOTD

First of all, Happy December to everyone! As some of you may already know, December is my birthday month :) well.. actually, it is my birthday in exactly 12 days! And though I have 3 assignments due before we get off on the 13th for Christmas, I've got all my parties planned for this week.. starting with tonight (I'm celebrating mine a week in advance just because everyone will be back home on my actual birthday). I swear I'll be exhausted but it'll be worth it. Well, I hope so at least..

One of my many early birthday blessings this year includes a pair of amazing Firmoo glasses from Firmoo.com. If you haven't heard about their First Pair Free program, head over right now and get your very first pair of Firmoo for free! Click here for more info/details :)

This is the pair that I've chosen aaaaand I'm loving how well it fits me! I've always been into the hipster-type of glasses and this is just so classic in tortoise palette.
I've ordered this pair for anti-reflective/anti-radition as well so no one can say that it's pointless wearing glasses when my eyes are perfectly fine. I mean, I've gotta keep them 20/20 y'know? Having to spend hours and hours in front of my Mac doesn't really help.

And of course, no post of mine is ever complete without a mirror selfie :P
Glasses from Firmoo
Sequined jumper/sweatshirt from Asos
I've been wearing these glasses for the whole day now and I have to say, they're so comfy it's as if I'm not wearing it. Ge love love for this pair of glasses 

Go ahead and head over to Firmoo.com for your first free pair! Oh and if you're not too sure what frame suits you, they have the Virtual Try-On System to help you out :)
Also, stay tuned for a surprise for you lovely readers! And I'd like to thank Firmoo for their awesomeness.

For all you bloggers out there, head over here for something awesome ;) x
