SELLING MY BRAND NEW HUNTER BOOTS AND SANDALS!

So.. Some of you might have seen me in my Hunter Boots on Instagram and now you wonder why I claim that I'm selling my  BRAND NEW boots. Fact is, it is indeed new and it is not the one I wore. 

The story goes, I was excited for my trip to Sydney and I thought to myself, finally I have a reason to buy the boots that I've always wanted but have no excuse to. I am someone who shops online a lot and I would always prefer to get the products straight from the original seller/store than getting it from anywhere else. I decided to get my boots online from HUNTER's website and later saw a pair of sandals that I just could not, not buy! I referred to the size charts and measured my feet size over and over again to make sure I didn't get the sizing wrong. I'm a size 36 and it is a size 3 on their site. 

I happily ordered and waited eagerly for them to arrive. It was a quick 3 days! When the parcel arrived, I had to pay 20 bucks handling fee for each item and on top of that a 7% gst. 
Well, I'm not familiar with these fees but it was definitely my first time having to pay handling fee and gst for a parcel.

I was bursting with excitement and quickly tried them on, honestly I was very happy with the quality of the products, it was worth every penny. However, my boots were a little tight and it kind of squashed my toes together. It was bearable but I thought that perhaps a size bigger would be more comfortable.

Moving on to my sandals, the moment I put my feet in, my heart sank! My toes were jutting out. I tried to convince myself for the next three days. Standing in front of the mirror and trying to walk in my room hoping that somehow the sandals might grow magically.

Well after a week, I could't deceive myself anymore. There was no way the sandals would fit and the boots will not become bigger.

I mailed HUNTER's customer service to enquire for an exchange and they said an exchange is possible as long as I get the items back to them in 28 days. But I have to absorb the shipping fee and pay another 20 bucks of handling fee and 7% gst, when they mail me back with the right sizes.

I don't have much choice, I brought the items to the POST office and guess what?!?! The total shipping fee is almost $200!!! I was completely lost! If I add another 30 bucks I could have bought another pair.

After contemplating I decided that it is really not worth it to pay so much for an exchange.

Nico suggested that I order the right sizes all over again and sell the ones that I have.
I did so and now I have 2 pairs of boots and sandals lying in my room~

Oh wait! I re-ordered the sandals and boots in size 4 and who would have guessed, the boots is too big! God damn it! 
Sandals fit perfectly though! I decided to stick to size 3 of my boots. -_-

Yup so that is why I am putting up these babies for sale right now. And they are in 100% pristine condition, only worn for perhaps 5 minutes in my room.

the perfect pants

A perfect fit and perfect cut is all one could ever asked for if he/she is a pants lover. 
It will be an extra bonus if the pants possess some unique details. I do not like to repeat an outfit or item, most of my clothes will only be repeated 2-3 months after one wear. Other than jeans and tees, the rest will probably end up in the preloved bag after being worn twice.

I'm not sure but I've got a feeling that I'll be repeating this pair of pants in no time and that is not my usual way of going about. I wish it would come in more colours! 

Sydney in squares

I was looking through the photos I've taken during the recent Sydney trip, a lot of them are just snippets of what D and I do offline and while we are not shooting but experiencing life and doing the usual stuff that people do. Except we do it with extra FUN! 

I realise that most of the time when work gets involve I became too focus on the quality and placement of pictures. Thus along the way I lost ability of capture the essence of experiencing life.

 When I decided to collate the random shots that I have in my iPhone, Fuji Camera and some shots by D into a collage. I felt that some of the random shots portray a whole different perspective even though the quality, in terms of pixels and resolution is not that great. I guess that's why sometimes in life, things does not have to be perfect.

 Well~ This pretty much summarised DANG'S entire trip in Sydney! It was a hell lot of fun! And we function pretty well together I must say. We are wrecking our brains for a few more upcoming trips!
Stay with us aite!!!

liese

Hair has always been an important element in portraying a certain vibe/character of a person and I am fully aware of that. However I have not really thought that the slightest difference would make such an impact
liese2

I have always maintained my hair with dark tones and in jet black some of the time.
liese3
I was very comfortable with dark tresses and didn’t quite want to step out of it.
My hair color has always been somewhat the same.

This summer, Liese has given me an opportunity to step out of my comfort zone. Tried their new Creamy Bubble Color in Milky Beige, a color dedicated specially for the summer vibes.
liese5

Pretty sure that Liese is not a foreign name to many, known for their fuss free application and trendy colors. As the name suggests, Milky Beige provides an almost creamy shade of yellow that goes well with Asian skin tones.
liese6

That said, color results varies according to the present hair color you have. I was not able to achieve the lightest shade and optimum result of Milky Beige because my hair was dyed jet black more than 3 times in less than a year. However I’m pretty satisfied on how it was able to lighten my hair by a tone or two. It certainly brightens the whole look and lifted that dark and heavy mood my tresses dwelled upon.
liese8

The crown of my hair also appears to be lighter as they are my natural hair that has not come into contact with any hair dyes, thus it was able to absorb the color more effectively.
liese7

As compared to other DIY hair color I have tried, I’ll definitely vote for Liese as the most convenient and fuss free DIY hair dye product. I do not have to deal with the usual dripping of colors that will stain my skin, sink, floor and anything that comes into contact. I simply apply them like a shampoo; it is so lightweight I can just leave it on my head without it falling all over the place.

***Do note that bottle should always be upright when dispensing, image above of bottle lying down is for visual purposes. Position of the bottle is important as it may affect the consistency of the foam.

The density of the foam is thick and creamy but light enough to remain afloat.

It wouldn’t fall even when I turn it upside down!

I had a really easy time with Liese Creamy Bubble color, no mess and not much cleaning up needed. More information on Liese can be found here.
contest final
 Before I go, I’d like to share that Liese and I are collaborating on a  #allthingsyellow giveaway contest on Instagram. Simply follow @liesesg and post a photo of your yellow summer must-haves items with hashtags #liesesg #allthingsyellow.


Keep a look out for this photo!!
Till then, Enjoy Yellow!

I had my first ever airbnb experience in this beautiful home. A very different feeling from staying in a hotel. Both are great in their own ways but I personally think that going for the experience and living as part of the community gives you a little more insight to life in that country. Definitely worth exploring~
