shanghai world's fair

hey guys, sorry about the lack of updates. i just came back from shanghai a few days ago and on the plane, i vomited and got sick and blah blah blah. the main reason i went to shanghai was to go to the world's fair (it's now better known as the world expo). anyways, it was sweltering, packed with people and....not really that great. i mean, yeah, it was good but in china, it was seriously overhyped. i only went to 10 country pavilions and the best by far was Italy. Italy's was actually really good and quite amazing. of course, i did some shopping (perhaps too much) in shanghai, loading up on zara and h&m because we don't have it here in australia.

Still Italy: Dolce & Gabbana

Still Italy: Ermenegildo Zegna
Still Italy: Prada

France: this was part of their Louis Vuitton section. I didn't really see the point in having Louis Vuitton have a display area, but it was quite cute. Please excuse the crappy photography. I had no idea how to work the camera and what setting to put it on.
France: Still the Louis Vuitton section. Once again, please excuse the crap photography.



Ahh, I'm so sorry! My last post was like THREE WEEKS AGO! I have a legit reason, ok? I'm at the snow, there is nothing to post about that...
I completely forgot to say something before I left...
Anyway, how is everyones holidays going? I don't know if the Northern Hemisphere is on Summer Break yet, but we've got our winter break now in Australia.



my friend did a project for photography on 'aspects' and i modelled for her for 'lips'. this picture is my favourite of me. she's an amazing photographer, my modelling skills are not so great. :)

I was first going to buy the OPI nail polish colour, "We'll always have Paris" because that's a quote taken from Casablanca (Best. Movie. Ever.) but it turns out the shop was out of stock of them (naturally) so I opted to buy these cute minions. Kudos to Isabelle for writing about the Shrek nail polishes...the colours are so pretty and pastel. I also got a pack  of OPI nail polishes for my birthday, courtesy of a friend of mine. The colours are all very bright (except the top coat). I also have a random pink glittery mini OPI nail polish I got last year from a friends party.

I kinda painted the nail polish onto pieces of paper so you can see the colours. I have school tomorrow and we aren't allowed to wear nail polish so there wouldn't really be a point in me painting it on and taking it off...plus, I am kinda crap at painting my nails. ):

Yeah, I didn't paint any of the red nail polish on because I couldn't open the bottle. Sad.

This is kind of off topic but the other day I saw The Runaways, it's an AMAZING film. I began watching it, not really expecting much but I was blown away. Dakota Fanning was gorgeous as Cherie Currie. Kristen Stewart has won my respect in playing this film role, she is epic. It was a pleasant surprise seeing Riley Keough, grand daughter of Elvis Presley in the film. Overall, The Runaways is probably one of my favourite films now, the music was great in the movie (I really appreciated it when they played Pretty Vacant by Sex Pistols). If you haven't seen the film, you definitely should.

Here's a random photo I took in a dressing room the other day:
