Food & Friends (But Mostly Food)

Liz, V and I in the same place! At the same time! Four years of friendship in the making! And all I have to show for it is pictures of food, but is there really a better way to christen a friendship? A: NOPE

I’ve hung out with Liz and V on separately, but this marked our first time seeing each other collectively and it was a momentous occasion ♡ I also met Catherine for the first time and she is the absolute sweetest! So ridiculous about about shopping, makeup and shopping for makeup – a kindred spirit who really Gets Me and my terrible retail decisions. Together our quartet of hungry friends descended on NYC to eat eat eat! Continue reading

~Baby, don’t cryyyyy toniiiiight~ THIS SONG IS EVERYTHING. I can’t believe it took SME a year to let EXO release it, because it’s so good. so heartbreaking. The harmonies! The rap! It’s perfection and pretty much everything that I want a pop ballad to be. The vocals are devastating enough to my well-being, but it turns out that the lyrics are based on the original version of The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen and I. Am. Done. ACTUAL SOUNDS OF DISTRESS. I was already extra excited for the prep-school album concept and now there’s a possibility that all the songs on XOXO are inspired by folktales or childhood stories?! Someone loves me 8)

Clearly, I am really! enjoying! this album. It’s all I’ve been listening to since it leaked was released leaked. It’s got a lot of solid tracks on it and it’s a great way for EXO to come back from their year-long hiatus. Wolf is questionable, but if you can get past how ridiculous it is to listen to the rest of the album, it definitely won’t disappoint. I look forward to them promoting some of the other songs on XOXO, namely Don’t Go, Heart Attack and Baby. I love both versions of the album, but the Korean version is definitely getting more plays on my iPod. The vocals work a little better and Chanyeol singing is the most wonderful surprise I have ever been given?? Breakout star of the album ♡ AND OF MY HEART 두근두근 ♡. I’m really glad EXO finally gets to promote as 12 :’)

On a related note, MBLAQ’s new album sounds great! Didn’t expect less from the likes of Primary, Zion. T, and Simon D, but the new album’s got some seriously neat and unexpected JT vibes. Also BEAST COMEBACK IN LESS THAN A MONTH??? Countdown to the start of my emotional rollercoaster. WILL I SURVIVE THIS SUMMER? (spoiler alert: I DONT)

PS: Upcoming posts: a lovely date with Liz, V and C, new beauty purchases, TVB drama ranting and finally finally getting around to sorting through my California photos. I’m making an attempt to write shorter posts and more frequently so please look forward to it!

Don’t speak so easily of love

Lee Hayi - Rose

♥ LEE HAYI ♥ She is absolutely the loveliest and I adooooore her. I can’t say I’m madly in love with the album or any of the singles, but I’m head over heels (hi heels?! HAAAAAA) for her styling and all of her concepts so far. I wish Rose had more OOMPH to it because the snippet in the teaser was incredible, but the full song is rather anticlimactic. I kept waiting for a huge chorus or bridge to blow me away, but it never happened so that was a bit of a letdown. Rose is hands down a much better title track than It’s Over though and I was ready to celebrate the revival of Teddy’s ability to product music, but I have a feeling the dance beat was his idea so I’m witholding the excitement. I really want to hear the song over an orchestral background. Continue reading

What’s In Your Bag · March 2013

I am utterly and entirely incapable of stopping myself from carrying so much stuff. I don’t know how other people survive with just their keys & wallet, but woe is me, for I cannot. I have resigned to the truth and I’ve accepted that it is my tragic character flaw to be a stuff-carrier. I just get it in my head that IM GOING TO NEED THAT and then it gets out of control. Anyway, I thought I would share a peek into my bag because I love creeping other people’s Continue reading
