I always feel guilty when I'm behind on my What's Lovelies. Let's amend that in a backwards manner, shall we?

What's Lovely for Saturday, August 7, 2010: Wonderfully drastically short haircut and the discovery of amazing foundation (even though it's my first time trying this new Clinique foundation, I'm currently loving it-- if you have problem with oily skin and redness like I do, I'd recommend this)

What's Lovely for this past Tuesday, August 3, 2010: Particularly heavy and dense humidity, the kind that makes breathing something like drinking through a straw, but it leaves traces of mysterious fog hovering over plains and reminds you of hot Thai nights (click to see slightly bigger size)

What's Lovely for August 2, 2010: Having your backyard invaded by a neighborhood kitty

What's Lovely for August 1, 2010: Blasting Cher, Mika and various musicals at top notch volume while driving down the road (but seriously though, I can't stop listening to this song on repeat and I think I fall more and more in love with Mika and his GAHHHAMAZINGness)

I LOVE your new haircut. You look amazing in it. Also, the picture with the bangles is superb. These were delicious lovelies.

Omgosh. This post is so wonderful is so many ways. I will always have a strange crush on Mr. O'Toole. And thanks for sharing the Mika vid! I'm always into new music. Btw, I had that Flight Against the Concords song from your last post stuck in my head all day. xD Your friends look so fun too! That sounds like a fun day, just trying on expensive clothes with friends! On my to do list now! The employees there must've been like "-_-" Haha. And I love your hair! It's lookin gooood. :]

Your new hair cut is the cat's pjs! I love it! I hope someday you own one of those Burberry trenches because it looks fab on you!

Poppy said...

Your hair is primo, I love it! And I've had that clinique make up recommended to me a few times now (my skin hasn't realised I'm no longer a teenager and teenage skin is not appropriate upon my face any longer) and I'm really gonna have to get round to buying some. It's so expensive though and I just can't afford it right now. =[ And the women in the shop that sells it, know I can't too!

And I'm glad you appreciated the 3 references in one post. I do try. ^_^
