Recent Buys ♡ // {Goals + Food Snaps}

First things first, how is it already April??? 

Seriously, the time has gone so quickly, especially this semester. Funnily enough, this week for me, is the last week and the last days of classes (hooray)! Though, the downside is that, this means that April is FINALS week. Which means, that I'm going to busy burying myself with papers, notes and coffee, and hopefully acing my finals. :/ So this means, that this post will be pretty long and picture-heavy, like the usual.

Anyways, if you have read or been following my blog, you might have known that I kind of have a shopping problem, especially when it comes to clothes, and surprise, surprise, this post, is going to mostly dedicated to my recent buys/haul.

And because I'm a such a shopaholic, the things you seen here, were actually bought around the beginning and the middle of March, and now that a month has passed, I actually have new clothing pieces that are currently tucked away. [☉。☉] (I need help!!!)



All the items from Forever 21.
So these three items you see here, are all from Forever 21. What I got were:
1. T-Shirt // "No one is perfect"
2. Crop Top // "It's just that I literally do not care at all."
3. Acid-wear Jeans

A sweater and a necklace.
Closeup detail of the necklace.
I'm actually surprised I got these items because they are from H&M and I never find anything from that store. What I got were:
1. Salt & Pepper Sweater
2. Spiky Silver Necklace

Shoes from Ardene's.
So I know people give flak for Ardene's shoes, but I find them comfortable, they can easily be matched with outfits and best of all, they're very affordable. What I got were:
1. Gray Slips-Ons
2. Black Flat Runners

Surprisingly, from my haul, I didn't buy anything that's pink, whoa. From all of them my favourite item has to be my acid-wear jeans, since it's very comfortable and it's my very first one! :D (I know, I know, pretty sad.)

Goals, Goals & Goals

Since school has basically finished and after finals I have free time, I decided to make monthly goals for myself! :D 

1. I need to get a job
-Like seriously, this way I won't feel guilty buying things, plus it will make me come out my shy shell that I have sadly reverted back to after I left my old job.

2. Try yoga for the first time
-I think it will be fun, plus it will help me learn how to become flexible and learn how to relax when I get anxious in situations.

3. Find volunteer opportunities
-New experiences, will help me grow and mature.

4. Attend classes that will help me lead to finding my career path
-This is so important because honestly, what I'm studying (health science & psychology), I can't even picture myself having a career in the fields. Don't get me wrong, I find the subjects that I learn fascinating/interesting, but as a lifelong career? I'm too sure.

5. Do something new
-Anything really, I need to venture out more.

6. Learn how to put eyeshadow on
-Hahaha, I really need to learn how to, because I want to learn how to create other makeup looks.

Of course, no blog post of mine is completed without Food Snaps

Seafood Udon at Bubble World!!!

Milk Tea Bubble Tea :)

Fries with omelette and bacon :A:

Salmon with rice from Denny's.

Hopefully, I will be able to update more in this month, but I'm not too sure, since my finals are spreaded out pretty evenly for once. 

As well, I know my blog posts has tended to sway away from just being a "beauty blog", but I like adding other segments to it, like lifestyle touches, hahaha, to me, it makes it so much more personable.

I'm going to end this post off with my favourite song at the moment, enjoy! :3

Ellie Goulding - Love Me Like You Do
