Thank You & Updates!

First off, I would like to thank Cydia and Lisa for tagging me for these awards. So we're supposed to post up the awards on our blog, then list 7 interesting facts. 

The Facts:
    1. I have an unhealthy obsession with cute stuffed animals. I love collecting and often run out of space for them. They also all have names. Many have "birthdays" but after a while it was really hard to keep track. Imagine having that many kids, lol!

    2. I LOVE spicy foods. I love spicy noodles, fries, vegetables, pizza...the list is endless. I actually have a hard time eating noodles if they're not spicy. Of course I have to compensate for it by drinking tons of water afterward, but it's so worth it.

    3. I think aliens really exist. Yea, yea, there are theories that try to prove that they're fake, but I'm a believer. Seriously, there are so many different galaxies out there, we can't the only ones.

    4. I like kung fu. I think it's really cool to kick ass. LOL. Really though, I've always like it and even took lessons at one point. I had lessons from a monk that's part of the Shaolin Temple, here in NYC. I think it was up until I got too busy with school work that I had to quit lessons. I also enjoy kung fu films, as exaggerated as some are.

    5. I like bubble tea, without the tapioca. Weird, right? I don't know, but they give me headaches sometimes (maybe from all that chewing) so I've just grown accustomed to not having them in my drinks at all. Of course that's not to say I never get them.

    6. When I was 14, I decided to give myself a haircut out of boredom. I started out by just layering, playing it safe. The next thing I knew, I had a bob, LOL. When I was 17 the same thing happened again, but the damage wasn't as bad. I still had semi-long hair. =) Seeing it might be a 3 year pattern, the next self haircut should be within this year. ;p

    7. From the time when I was younger, up until recent years, I have always disliked the color pink. I just thought it was too girly for my liking and that all the other girls around me were way too obsessed with it for no reason. However, pink seems to be growing on me. >_<

      I tag: (no particular order)




      *Giang, mentioned above is having a giveaway! Definitely check out her site, she updates on the regular. =)

      I went to MAC yesterday and picked a lippie from their Liberty of London collection. Yea, I got sucked in by their packaging.

      Gorgeous coral color, don't ya'think?

      My current nails:
      Color: OPI Meet Me on the Star Ferry


      I also wanted to share a few pictures of my recent shoe purchases. I really have to stop with all the shoe buying, lol.

      Nike blazers! Took me so long to find these in my size because they usually make them for guys so the smallest size would usually be a men's 6 or 7 which is a women's 8-9.

      Here's the detailing of the shoe:

      I love that these are grey, so they pretty much go with my entire wardrobe.

      Next  up, are these cute boots I got from ZARA.

      Loving the stud detailing on the back. My boyfriend doesn't like these metal studs, but whatever, I'm diggin' it. ;p


      So I went to this chocolate place with my boyfriend yesterday and I just wanted to put up a picture of how cute the chocolates are.

    Mini Shoe "Haul"?

    So last week, I went shopping and went a little crazy with the shoe buying. Maybe it was because the weather is getting warmer and we're getting closer to spring/summer but I couldn't resist buying sandals and flats. I really need to cut back on my spending for a while. What is a girl to do?

    Within a week, a bought 4 pairs of shoes:
    This pair is really comfy because theres an elastic band that allows the shoe to stretch (and retract?) while you're walking.

    I like the that the detailing is simple yet not too simple. Can't wait to wear this in the Spring! :)

    I wanted to get a pair of sandals this year because last year I couldn't find any that I liked.

    Again, I like the simple yet not too simple design.

    And I like the the height of the wedge heel. It's about 1.5" to 2". I think it's the perfect height.
    I saw this while browsing and it was on sale. Such a good deal, how could I resist? Now I just have to find an occasion to wear it!

    I like strappy shoes lol. If you haven't noticed by now, I like simplicity. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? 

    The heel isn't too high, should be pretty comfy! 

    And well, this pair, I've been wanting to get these FOREVER! Literally, for YEARS but I have grey ones and blue ones as well so I didn't really need them. But this year, I just took the plunge and got it. I need to saveeeee!

    So I guess this was a mini "haul"? lol I hope you all are enjoying and making the most of this beautiful weather we've been having. Until next time . . .

    FOTD, OOTD, and lashes on crack? LOL

    Hey lovelies, this is just a quick update before I resume my schoolwork. -_- is how I feel right now. I'd much rather be blogging than finishing my drawing assignment for my still life class.

    But anyway, here's the FOTD:

    This is just an easy neutral look that I wear on a daily basis.

    Next up, is what I wore:

    The dress is from Macy's and the shoes are from Steve Madden.

    Sorry, the pictures aren't that clear, I'm still working on finding the right place and angles to take these photos. And it was night time, so the lighting was bad lol.

    Recently, I've noticed that my lashes have gotten longer, or maybe it's just the way I'm applying mascara. No idea, but I just wanted to include some pictures.

    Left eye:

    Right eye:

    That's it for now. I hope you ladies have a lovely week and enjoy the nice weather!

    xo, Diana

    Rekindled Love: Sephora by OPI- Opening Night

    It's been a while since I've worn this nail color, but I still love it so!

    I'm holding a beautiful bracelet created by Winsley.

    Here's the polish in another light.
    I just love how dark it is, but not quite like black nail polish.

    Hmm, not much has been going on lately besides school. Midterms and papers are hitting us hard, but we'll still try to update often. I went shopping today after my Money & Banking midterm. I felt like I had to unwind after staying up until 4am studying, lol. 

    Oh, and here's a picture of us from dinner a few nights ago. (We had sushi again. >_<)

    For the next post- maybe a clothing haul? 
    or outfit of the day?
    Tell me what you like.
