SO, 12+ hours of much procrastinating (I am pro!) and slow packing, three hours in the car with Mumma and a haircut later: I am back on home turf after just over six weeks straight at Uni since my last visit! Got my hair cut yesterday, but I'm currently still in the "Do I actually like this?" phase. I'm sure I'll be fine once I've washed it myself and gotten to grips with styling it! I got a fringe cut in and had my layers thinned out, if you were wondering (:




(Tunic, H&M;
Bodycon skirt, H&M;
Polka dot tights, New Look;
Necklace, Disney Couture in Hong Kong;
Stag ring, Topshop.)

It is SO good to be home for Christmas. I can't even describe how nice it feels to be back and sat enjoying real heating. I'm spending my day at home sorting my laundry out (yes, I brought it back: true student!) and watching copious amounts of TV, so I'm wearing a pretty basic outfit. Still love this H&M tunic; I want to buy so much more in this colour once money permits! I then counteracted the baggy tunic with my patterned bodycon skirt. I actually need to go and buy a new plain bodycon skirt; they are honestly the most versatile skirts to wear, but mine has stretched beyond belief in the wash ):

I've been taking advantage of no Uni lectures and seminars to rewatch Boys Over Flowers :D As you all know, I'm a bit of a drama series junkie, but since being back at Uni, I totally fell out of watching my Korean and Taiwanese dramas (unbelievably predictable but an ultimate guilty pleasure!) so I'm going to get the ball rolling with those again. Does anyone else watch Asian dramas? Any new recommendations, other than Mischievious Kiss?

Finally, a week ago, my Christmas giveaway closed (: In total I received 173 entries, which I put into RANDOM.ORG, and the winner of the Christmas goodies is:


I have emailed you for your details, so please email back as soon as possible so I can get the prizes sent out for you in time for Christmas! Thanks again to everyone who entered and Tweeted, I didn't expect to receive so many entries at all!

  2. You look so wonderfully comfy and chic! Also, is it weird that my eyes zoomed right to your cuticles in that ring picture? How do you take such good care of them? Hubba hubba

    I also like your room. Maybe that's weird (or creepy) to say. I've never had a room where I could customize to my liking and make girly.

  3. From what I can see in your pic, your haircut is cute! :)
    Pretty pretty pretty! Love your necklace!

    I'm going to take the Christmas Break as a opportunity to watch some Korean dramas too :) Have you seen 'My Girl'? Really funny and angsty at the same time.
    I want to watch 'Coffee Prince' and 'Stairway to Heaven' xxxx

  4. Love your stag ring! Dorothy Perkins do one thats more like a stag's skull and antlers. Can't decided if it's beautiful of grotesque.

  5. katie: thank you! i get bored of my fringes really quickly, i had one back in may and got bored after about a week, so god knows how long this one will last me!

    alyse: thank you! oh gosh, i don't do anything fancy to my nails, maybe my l'occitane hand cream?! thanks aha, i had it redecorated last winter, and i'm changing it again soon i think!

    vicky: n'awh thank you! i was planning on taking some close-up shots yesterday but it was too late by the time i had switched my laptop on! YES, i absolutely love 'my girl'! and i started 'coffee prince' but never continued... really nice soundtrack (:

  26. I can not wait to be home for Christmas! So happy for you. I'm a pro at procrastinating too! Haha. It's so much fun, not. ;) I love that ring and about the Asian dramas, I miss watching them! I haven't watched one for YEARS.

  27. I'm so jealous that you get to be back home! I have one more week of finals to go :/ My best friend LOVES the drama Autumn's Concerto and tells everyone watch it, so I'm guessing it's really good? Haven't given it a try yet. Your haircut is very cute! :) How long are you back at home for christmas break?

  29. michele: aw when are you headed home? LOL i put off packing by doing the strangest things, cleaning my bathroom and bedroom multiple times, watching back-to-back episodes of pokemon... you name it and i probably did it! thanks lovely (: i used to love them when i was about 14/15 but find it hard to get into a really good series recently!

    amaris: good luck with finals sweet! oh i watched autumn's concerto two or three years ago i think, was so sweet and had a nice soundtrack too! i'm home for three and a half weeks (:

    rosie: thank you lovely!

    kylie: i tried watching the japanese version after watching the korean one but it just didn't compare for me ): i love lee min ho too much i think aha!

  30. I love the ring. And that relaxing feelnig of going home where you can just flump and not worry about anything! I hope you have a lovely time at home :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Love this outfit, I need to wear my body con skirt more, I always tend to think of it as a 'going out' skirt! Oh and this might sound weird but I'm wearing the same colour nail polish as you and I have a chip in the exact same place! Thought it was freaky, probably not!

    Enjoy being home/warm/well fed!

  33. Hi Michelle!

    I just discovered and love your blog! I think your haircut is adorable, and I have enjoyed reading some of your earlier posts!
    As far as Korean dramas go, I've only seen the Pianist (with Minho from SHINee), but I have a couple of friends who enjoy Boys over Flowers. Sorry, I wish I had other recommendations.. I do love K-pop though ;)

    Your ring is fabulous, by the way!

    xoxo
