I have been away for quite awhile, I was busy with job hunting and all that. I was so discouraged for a little while because I did not get any call back from companies. However, the calls came pouring in this week. I went to a few interview at the beginning of the week. And yesterday, I landed on one of my dream jobs with one of my dream companies..
I am super duper duper super excited. I can't believe this is happening to me! I had no experience in fashion or merchandising whatsoever, but i got the job! and I will work hard to achieve my goal. I am so thankful for Cathy and Melissa who interviewed me. They are kind and wonderful women. I want to thank them for believing in me~
Last but not least, I need to thank God for leaving the best til now. And this is the first time that I got a offer within 1 hr after the interview~ I am sooo glad that I did well; I gave my best. I am more proud of myself than ever! Even more proud than finishing engineering~
Thanks to those who had wished me good luck!!! alll ur blessings worked!!!!

Sorry. I have been away for quite awhile.
I was so caught up with school and everything.
I didn't decide to write until I got my parcel this morning from American Apparel.
I have to say it again, American Apparel never disappoints me any purchases I make.
What I got this time is their famous 3D Flower Mesh Jumper which I got it in white and their top rated Nylon Tricot leggings in black.
I will talk about the leggings first because obviously there is more to say for the jumper. The material is 80% nylon and 20% elastane. The material feels kind of like swim wear. It's super stretchy and fits your legs like a glove. Although I think I got one size too big, the fitting is still gorgeous. Some say that they don't wrinkle at the knee; it wrinkles for me for the obvious reason. I will get the xs next time. I didn't want to go through exchange again because that would take too much effort. lol~ O~ I have to mention their elastic band around the waist area. It's super heavy duty! I am more than satisfied with this pair of leggings.
Alright~ to the flower mesh jumper. As I've just mentioned, I got it in white!! When I took it out from the package, I thought, "Wow.. this thing is hella heavy!!!" I love how heavy it is. The material is 90% nylon and 10% elasthanne. OMG~ it's meshy but it's soo smooth! There are elastic bands at the wrist and waist area. Also, there is no need of ironing for this jumper! excellent because I hate Ironing... It's also a hand washing material. say NO dry clean only materials. (a little story about dry cleaning clothes, there are so many so many tops out there in the market that cannot take hand washing or machine washing apparently. Whenever I shop now, I tend to avoid "dry clean only" clothes because that would simply increase my cost on dry cleaning and it would take longer for my clothes to get cleaned. Normally when I hand wash my clothes, I can probably wear them the next day.) Anythings, this jumper goes well with EVERYTHING. skirts, jeans, shorts. Anything! I am sure I don't have to elaborate much on this jumper because it's so FAMOUS~
Higher contrast on the photo so you can see the flower mesh better.
I am so happy that I finally decide to get this jumper. I have been considering for over a year now~ I don't know why it took so long. I am known for my impulse buying! Anyhow, until next time, guys.

So everyone knows about the place Pandora... where is it? it's really not a real place. Because only the avatar people know where Pandora is exactly. LOL~
However, ladies out there should get themselves familiar with another PANDORA.
The Givenchi Pandora.
It comes in all size. Large shoulder Pandora, Medium shoulder Pandora, Small Mini crossbody Pandora. They all look identical except for the size. However, the Pandora is available in all sort of leather. Regular lamb leather, Patent leather, wrinkled leather, rabbit fur, pebble leather, textured leather. The price range is from 980 USD to 2400 USD depending on the size and the type of leather. From what I've seen, Barneys NY and Bergdorf Goodman have the most to choose from in terms of size AND leather.
My favorite one?
Of couse is the Mini Pandora Pepe Messenger =D

CAUTION: I have been getting a lot of mixed messages and comments lately regarding this online store not shipping out products, not replying to any orders inquiries. Some people are saying that this company is still running fine and is a trusty one. Just shop at your own cost. I do not want to label this online shop to be fraudy or not. Nevertheless, I DID receive my parcel.
I received my Superstrands Clip in Extensions today.
I received my Superstrands Clip in Extensions today.
What I got is the Deluxe 20" 10 Pieces Clip in Hair Extension in Colour 1# Jet Black.
These are about 180g in weight and are quad wefted meaning you get four wefts sewed together as one.
Also, they are 100% Remy hair.
On the website it says it will include
However, what I got in the package was a 5" instead of the longest 8".
Nevertheless, it has enough hair in my opinion.
As you can see, the packaging is SUPER crappy. It's just a cardboard tied to the hair extensions put into a plastic bag. There is no instruction manual, no comb, no extra clips, no anything except for the hair extension you ordered. I have to say that I am quite disappointed with the packaging because it certainly "debrands" the product even though the quality of the hair is average above.
I actually cannot comment on the clips yet because I have not worn these extensions for more than an hour yet. But they seem to be very sustainable and heavy-duty in my opinion. However, things can happen and they can break, I am sure.
The hair is very soft, silky and true to colour. I ordered the darkest colour because I thought my dyed black hair is already very dark. Yet, jet black is even darker than my dyed black hair. I have yet to find split ends in these hair.
One thing that worries me is that the hair kept shedding ever since I got them. I don't know if this is a normal thing for hair extensions.
Anyhow, I am quite satisfied with these hair extensions as per now.
I definitely need to bring them for a cut before I actually wear them since they are too long to blend into my real short hair at the moment.
After the cut, I will post some picture of me with these extensions on. By that time, you guys will prob have a better view on how these extensions sit on a real head.
Anyways, if you want to check them out, go to http://www.superstrands.com
Next time, after these wear out, I will prob try the extensions from Hello Gorgeous because I heard they sell the thickest and finest quality hair extensions. If I could have found out sooner~ Anyhow, I couldn't wait for 5 weeks anyways.
Until Next Time guys!
With Love, Christy
