It just didn't work.

Understand this.
Nothing is wrong with you.
Or him.
Nothing is wrong with anyone.

When someone falls out of love with you, it's hard.
We tend to think crazy things, that we are simply unlovable.
He seems perfect, you feel perfect, so why can't this be perfect?

We fail to think that they fell out of love with you
simply because he's not meant for you.
That you two simply don't connect well.
Instead we search within, thinking the problem is there.

Nothing's wrong, not him, not you. 
It's the connection. 
It just didn't work.
Simple as that.

There's only one person in the world,
who can love you the way you're meant to be loved.
This guy's just not the one.

FASHIONSPIRATION: TVB Hong Kong Actresses Awards Dresses

I've always been obsessed with Hong Kong Dramas, ever since I was young.
That's why I've always wanted to move to Hong Kong...
Though I don't plan on moving there anymore, what hasn't changed
 is my love for the city, for the dramas, and
 for the beautiful actors and actresses.

I have missed out on the 2013 TVB Anniversary Awards as I was overseas during the time it was broadcasted, but I'm still highly curious as to what they wore last year. 
So I did some searching to satisfy my re-born obsession with Hong Kong dramas and actresses. My favourites are Myolie Wu, Nancy Wu and Kate Tsui, but also Linda Chung.

Why love usually doesn't work out

Your thorns don't hurt by Vanilladisaster
by Vanilladisaster

Here's one big daily thinker life thinker for you,
seriously, please take the time to read and digest this.
Hopefully this will guide you to happiness 
because this is how I found happiness.

I finally understand why my mum always told me to date when I am older, not just because she wants me to focus on my studies first but, most importantly, she doesn't want me to get my heart broken. There's different views out there where people encourage you to experience it so you know how to fix yourself... or know what you want in a guy. But I don't like jumping into the deep end. I like taking things one step at a time, heartbreaks included. 
So to address the question of this post: Why love usually doesn't work out... when you're still a teenager. Let me throw another question into the air: How do you learn to love someone when you don't even know how to love yourself? The most important person in your life should be yourself, selfish as that sounds, it's actually not that selfish at all. Without yourself, what is there? Nothing. You gotta give yourself a lot more credit than most of us do.

New Obsession: Style Nanda

Little did I know I had found the paradise of perfection.
Hair, clothes, makeup... goddesses or angels. I have no idea.
But their style is the epitome of bloggers.
Mother, forgive me but I have found my new lover(s).

About 2 years ago I went to Korea and was looking for a bright coloured lipstick that would actually stay on. After much searching I came across 3 Eyes Concept's department in a shopping mall. Their lip paint was perfect for what I was looking for. A beautiful dark orange, almost red. 
Everything else about them is just as amazing and now I'm completely in love!! The 3 Eyes Concept is a beauty brand branched out from their clothing brand Style Nanda. And the models for these two co-brands are so beautiful: Sora Park, Minhee Jung, Jiwon Kang!!! Absolute perfection!

The Secret Garden

by applesttar

The girl who found the key to the secret garden,
hid there trying to run away from the world beyond.
She tries to shut out her loneliness but no beauty could hide
the emptiness she carries inside.

This is my new attempt to have more fun, and bring more of me, of what I love. My passion with not just fashion but photography and stories. Over the past I've been so hyped up with trying to please people, trying to copy the other fashion bloggers, I had lost my sense of touch. This is what I love and I hope you love it too I really don't care whether you love it or not. It's time for me to embrace who I am and what I love and sharing them is part of the fun.  
The story of the girl who shuts away her feelings, I think is unintentionally/subconsciously a representation of me. Though not the loneliness part, I am very happy with all the friends and family currently in my life. There is no such thing as loneliness to me. But it is me when it comes to shutting out negative emotions... I don't even know if I'm shutting them out, or they simply don't exit... I've always thought break ups meant tears and death but I've never been happier.

Only Human

Music is always so beautiful, expressing feelings you thought
unexpressable, communicating messages so lovely to the
ear. Eliciting thoughts and emotions you never
 knew were there. That's music. And Christina Perri is a
 musician that creates such magic.

by ElenaKalis

My little brother walked into my room as I was on my laptop and told me to open up a tab. He typed in something and just told me to listen to it, "I think you'll like it," he said. And indeed he was right. Christina Perri's new song 'Human' is so tragically beautiful. And the visual expression of the song is nothing short from the beauty of the song itself either. A minimalist music video. So simple. So moving. And it is usually the simpler things that draw such deep responses from me.   
I don't want to think of the song as just another melody of a lover's heartbreak. Being only human means we shouldn't push ourselves too far sometimes, love, study or career-wise. And being an ambitious Sagittarius, who's known for being unemotional, I fail to understand that it's okay to break down sometimes, to 'feel'. Certain emotions make you understand certain things. We have emotions for a reason. And it's okay to feel the bad ones sometimes, as long as we don't let it control us.

That Rare OOTD

Now that I've shut Infatuations by Elle down I wanted
 to recap my favourite issue and favourite photos from that
 issue. After all, this blog has been deprived  of OOTD
 for way too long.

Love Yourself

Haven't done any 'Daily Thinkers' for a while so at the end of this
 post I've included three beautiful quotes to get you thinking
 and feeling. Today's post is all about loving yourself. Three beautiful
 quotes to accompany three journal entries I've posted
 in the past few days on my DeviantArt account.
