七夕情人节

昨天是'七夕情人节' 是中国的浪漫传统节日,   也是牛郎织女的爱情传说
大河之东,有美女丽人,乃天帝之子,机杼女工,年年劳役,织成云雾绢缣之衣,辛苦殊无欢悦,容貌不暇整理,天帝怜其独处,嫁与河西牵牛为妻,自此即废织纴之功,贪欢不归。帝怒,责归河东,一年一度相会。
希望昨天大家都跟家人,爱人或朋友们过的很愉快哦!


Yesterday was the Chinese Valentine's Day, and I hope you all had a lovely time with your loved ones and family :)


Love,
Lissy

Cherry Blossoms



Just a few snapshots I took today of the cherry blossoms in our front garden as Melbourne finally showed the coming of Spring with a beautiful sunshiny day.  Also have a poem below to accompany the photos.

Cherry Blossoms Adrift
Pink petals passing
Scents above so high
Painted porcelain perfection
Blossoms caress the sky

Swaying silent shroud
Suitors strolling by
Pink petals passing
Lover's gentle sigh

Pastel hues falling
Slow fluttering grace
Pink petals passing
Lining streams in lace

Pink petals passing
Smoothest transit by
Soft essence floating
In most subtle lullaby

Inducing springtime slumber
Upon a satin shore
Sailing with the current
Pink petals pass before




Next time,
Lissy

Review: Romwe Single Pocket Light Green Shirt

Received my first purchase from Romwe the other day, Romwe is a China-based online store that sells clothings, shoes and accessories, and I quite well known among fashionista's for their:
- large range of styles
- cheap price
- range of sizing
- free shipping with no minimum purchase
- 20% off coupon for your first purchase!

Now onto what I got from Romwe.  I'd had my eyes on this shirt for quite a while, but they only had size large left, so I browsed other online stores like Sheinside and Asos for a similar shirt, but was unsuccessful.  Luckly, when I was browsing Romwe a few days later they had it back in stock! So I chose my size, clicked 'add to bag' and paid right away!

Single Pocket Light Green Shirt $34.99USD here

Actual item:
Came nicely in a zip lock bag with information about returns  

love the details - mother of pearl-like buttons and white edging

I'm really pleased with the quality and price of this shirt (bought it for only $27.99 after my 20% off coupon), so I'll continue to order from them in the future.  I also received it earlier than expected because they stated that delivering to Australia would take 5-15 days, yet it only took a week to arrive, great service.


Haven't worn this shirt out yet, but I will once spring's around the corner.  If you have time, I do recommend you check out Romwe, and you'll probably spend a few hours on it like I first did, and don't forget your 20% off coupon :)

Toodles,
Lissy

I'm back and giveaway winner!!

Back from my short hiatus due to assessment overload, and I think I did quite well in all 4 subjects.  Now it'll be a quiet weekend for me since I just have to read this context novel for English, other than that I'll be visiting the RMIT open day on Sunday to grab a pre-selection kit for the design courses I'm interested in, any Melbournians going to be there?

Anyways back to announcing my one year giveaway winner!

Be Right Back

Going to take a hiatus from blogging for around a week due to an overload with sacs: geography, business management, english, and health all in one week kill me now, but I'm only going to study for business management and english so I'll be alright, because I'll be bullshitting my way through the geography sac on population and health sac on global health #modelstudent

Now I bet you're thinking that I must be either really dumb to do such subjects or just want a relaxing last year in high school with bludge subjects, and the answer is B.  Since I was forced by my wanna-be-private-school to do five subjects this year when I already did two year 12 subjects in year 11 last year, I have a total of 7 subjects when the normal number of subjects is 5-6 ( ☌ω☌)

Anyways, just came back from a geography lecture which I nearly fell asleep in, but I survived with some milk tea I bought earlier and here's my ootd, got quite a few stares from old grannies at the train station maybe it's because of the tiger or the 'japanese girl 1984' part, who knows..
jumper: WC
jeans: Uniqlo
bag: Portmans
scarf: made by me
oxfords (not shown): Urban soul


don't forget my giveaway which ends soon~


That's it for now, I'll be back soon with a review on a shirt I bought from Romwe!
Byee
