Bubble Tea and Perfumes!

One of my favourite drinks in the world is Bubble tea. Something that I haven't had in the longest time but the other day my mom surprised me with a Taro flavoured one that she bought from a new Chinese cafe that has opened in town. It wasn't quite as good as what I'm used to in HK but it was still yummy!

I also went out at the weekend to a (re)freshers party which was animal golf super hero school themed. I avoided wearing a white shirt and stuck with my sheer one instead and found a pink tie from my little sister's room. I wish I was still a fresher!

Yes, I'm still a sucker for Hello Kitty.

  1. Omg, YUM! I absolutely love bubble tea, though I've never been a fan of taro. I'm more into the fruity ones - like green apple!

    You look so cute! I love your outfit. Especially your skirt! WHY IS TOPSHOP SO EXPENSIVE HERE IN NY?! But I don't suppose it's any cheaper over there, is it? I've always wondered about freshers week, and I wish we had that in America. It seems like to much fun. It sucks that our drinking age is 21. :( You Europeans have so much more fun.

    Your perfumes are so cute! I love the DKNY Be Delicious one. It smells like apples, my favorite! And yay! Giveaways. I think I'll inconspicuously enter, ROFL.

  2. so love this outfit! Wow!

    The bubble tea sound quite intriguing. What a beautiful giveaway!

  3. You look super cute in that pink tie! & I've been looking for a fresh, every day kind of perfume. How awesome that you got the free bottle.

  4. I love bubble tea! It's just so difficult to find where I live. =( But the perfume sounds lovely! What a wonderful giveaway.

  5. Bubble tea and perfume. What a lovely day! I love your outfit, too. I wish I could pull something like that off!

  6. i love bubble tea. my favourite flavour is taro :)

  7. Ooh, thanks for the giveaway!

  8. mmmhmmm the perfume looks like it smells yummy !
    i remember that dkny contacted me abt the sponsor too, but they cancelled it because i live in indonesia :(

  9. nice going with the tie for a pop of color :)

  10. Hello!

    By you mean freshmen in high school? Lol, sorry I'm a bit confused! >_< My favorite perfume isn't one that can be bought at a counter, lol. I'm not sure if they have a Bath & Body Works in the UK (I think they do...right?), but if they do, check out their White Citrus perfume. It's not too light, yet not too strong. Perfect for days and nights! I love it sooo much! =D

    Please enter me in the contest as well! My e-mail is: ciararae09[@]gmail[.]com

    Have a great day!
