I've A License to Thrill

Hong Kong was always so ridiculously hot. It even went up to 36 degrees at one point. I had problems with immigration for the first few days (had to queue up at the government office at 6.30am), and then my mum fell sick after or several days, but it was an experience.

I did alot of shopping though.

Sasa in Sheung Shui

I spent alot of time in Mong Kok. I thought I would show you my outfits. I didn't take many outfit photos :(


awkward

Outfit: Shoes/Top/Vest/Bag: Hong Kong, Shorts: Marks and Spencer


outfit: everything bought in HK



Outfit: Vest/bag: Hong Kong, Skirt: Marks and Spencers

I really love my hair in high buns, but I got my hair cut, seriously never going to get my hair cut again when there is a language barrier. I wanted a trim just a cm or 2 off and he took around 7cm off :/ and then thinned my hair, I hate my hair being thinned out. I want my hair back to this length. I was really upset, he had caught my ear piercing aswell in his comb and tugged on it really hard when it was freshly pierced. It was honestly the worst experience.


Outfit: everything from Hong Kong.

I'm an XL in HK clothing. It's kinda depressing since I fit most M clothes in UK. It was kinda a shock when shop keepers would exclaim why am I looking at such small clothes for myself... whilst I was over there I had lost weight too.


I was really happy to go back to Hui Lan Shan and have my favourite Watermelon and Aloe drink.
I alos bought some awesome shoes.



So the past couple of days have been quite eventful and hectic. I moved into my flat for university, and I flew back from Hong Kong by myself. 

did you guys miss me :p?

I just recently had a haircut and kind of missing my long hair now but I always said to myself it will grow again so don't worry!

Hello!
how many adventures .. I'm sorry about your mom, but now he's better, right?! I hate going to the hairdresser! Very nice photos and the drinks ... good!
Even here in Italy did a crazy hot this summer, now it's better ..
I missed you

Piperita Patty said...

Of course I missed you! I wanted to hear about HK. I'm sorry to hear it wasn't everything nice. In particular the weight thing...so depressing! I have always to choose XL or XXL for a normal fit on asian clothes, and I'm not considered fat at all here in Italy!
It's nice to watch your outfit photos ^^

Danke für dein Kommentar<3<3
Wow, die Bilder sind toll *v* Ich würde auch gerne mal nach Hongkong ;o; Naja vielleicht irgendwann^^
Ich liebe deine outfits, so cool :D

DWei said...

Bleh... I'm kind of jealous of you. I love Hong Kong. The malls and transit are way better than anything we have over here.

And why would you mind if it's hot? Just stay inside where there's AC. :P

What the heck!? You look like an XS to me! Asian brands make sizes way smaller than normal.

I really like your hair now, although yeah, hair dressers do not seem to understand what 2cm are, ha!
