QUIET WALKS AROUND TOWN

Tuesday, January 15
Crosses + holograms. Ugh, one slight problem though: my ears are virgins.
I keep telling myself I should just buy any earrings I like first, in case I pierce my ears in the future..
Saw this construction site in the distance as it was glistening in the sunset. 
Clearly, my photo is doing no justice to the actual scene that I saw!
  
Fun fact: I like shopping on my own. 
As much as I love shopping with my friends and having another person around to talk to and help make important life decisions ("SHOULD I BUY THIS TOP?? YES/YES??"), I find myself heading to town on my own a lot more recently. Though it may get quite lonely and frustrating when deciding if I should buy something (that I end up walking around the shop multiple of times and making faces at my own reflection in the mirror as I go on with my internal struggle of BUY NOW, WORRY LATER vs SAVE THE MONEY, GODDAMMIT), I like it. 
It's quite therapeutic, don't you think? Just walking around to your favourite shops with your earphones plugged in. There's no rush when it comes to looking through every single rack of clothes and how many times you want to visit the fitting room! 

Last monday, it was my first day back at school for semester 2 and it ended super early. 
So, I thought why not head to town and check out if there was any rad sales going on! Didn't get much except a $5 grey beanie from H&M! 
♢♢♢ 
But something super unexpected happened there! When I walked up to the cashier to pay for my beanie, she said, "Oh! You are the girl from Lookbook!" I was so shocked!! But I was definitely very happy. I squeaked out an awkward "Aww ahaha hello!" and asked if she had a LB account herself. She made my day. ꒰•̤▿•̤*꒱
♢♢♢

And... the rest of my mini haul is from Diva - an ankh necklace, amethyst quartz necklace, and a dainty daisy ring! Best part was that it was $6, $9 and $6 respectively! It's always so awesome to think about how much the original price was and how much you got it during the sale!

  1. I enjoy shopping by myself too :)
    It sort of reinforces my 'stand' that my style should be truly personal and not so much influenced by anyone else's opinion..even if I do ask for and appreciate the input my friends/mom give.. Anyway, is the sale still going on at Diva? And ahh I wish I could meet you in person too..!

    1. Glad I'm not the only one who enjoys shopping alone! Yeah that is super true - when I shop alone, I can do things at my own pace and not worry about what others say about what I want to buy!! I always feel worried that I'm taking up people's time too!! And haha aw, I would love to meet you one day! :) x

  3. I've gotta say--recently I love heading on mini shopping trips by myself. As much as I love the opinions of my friends, sometimes it's kind of relaxing to just explore by myself :)

    Love your blog!!
