Once upon a time I was a girly girl who loved dressing up and shopped for nothing but pink clothes, accessories, shoes and purses. To be honest, I never really succeeded at pulling off a particular style such as lolita, emo (yep.. she said it) or gyaru, I rather mismatched and mixed different styles. One summer, I literally walked around with a BTSSB Bunny Bear Backpack on my, well, back. Luckily, I was friends with people who were just as crazy as me at that time, so nobody made snarky remarks. Eventually, I let go of the idea of ever becoming a lolita and ordered gyaru clothing from Japan instead, my favourite brands (still!) being Cocolulu (which pretty much resembles my current style) and Liz Lisa. While I have a bunch of Liz Lisa items and still can't walk by a store without buying anything, I'm the absolute anti-Liz Lisa girl, it's too girly, too frilly but yet so incredibly cute. So when I heard they were launching their very own makeup line - like, two years ago - I was so ready to jump on the bandwagon once more. (I've already reviewed the brand's very own eyelash line).
I noticed I never finished my travel post series on my trip to Hawai'i way back in 2012 and we're already 26 days into the new year - two years later, though. Maybe because it was getting too much for me to write and for you to read, but before I continue my Asia series, I'd like to finally wrap this up and tell you about my favourite place on O'ahu: the North Shore, the infamous spot that makes Hawai'i the birth cradle of surfing, which is one of my biggest hobbies and inspirations. I had the opportunity to go back to Hawai'i this year, but I noticed there's so many things I've left unseen in Japan that I decided against the beautiful pearl of America's Polynesia. In case you wondered where I've been: I'm trying to figure out where I wanna go with this blog. At this point I'm pretty much over dolling up for photos that all look the same, I still enjoy taking product pictures, though, but my lifestyle has changed a lot over the past two years and I'm just not into spending money on make-up anymore unless I'm on vacation (and that's when I go all-out), which is what I mainly focus on: Work and afford amazing trips. I'll be redesigning Fenua Beauté soon and there will be a lot of changes to the name, the style and the appearance. There will still be beauty posts, equally as much as travel posts.
