ARTEMIS

artemis happy
After a pretty rubbish couple of weeks, I'm back and with a happy smiley post to get back into a positive mind frame (thanks for your well wishes guys, everything is ok). I must admit I've not had blogging on my mind for a while so it was time to take some new outfit pics today and get back into the swing of things. It does feel really good to be back with a fresh new blog post featuring my awesome new t-shirt.
Artemis tee
Artemis Sailormoon t-shirt and floral
Growing up, I used to get lots of Cantonese dubbed animation sent to me as a kid from Hong Kong which my grandparents recorded daily (my male cousins were all about Dragon Ball Z). I think the general idea was that my sister and I could improve our Cantonese and we used to anticipate a brand new VHS in their regular care parcels. Sailormoon was our absolute favourite and I couldn't resist the charm of this cat print t-shirt which features Sailor Venus's cat, Artemis. I found this tee over at Romwe and it instantly went into my shopping basket. It shipped really quickly too from the US so I was excited to come home to it a few days ago. Bearing in mind it only cost me about £6.50, the quality isn't fantastic but I don't really mind. Even though I'm in my er...late 20s now (yikes) it makes me smile! Definitely much needed.

I really need to catch up with the new series of Sailormoon which I watch with English subtitles. I'm used to the Cantonese dub though, so it's not quite the same! I always think of the series when I spot crescent moons, remembering trips to China town with my parents and buying holographic Sailormoon collectors cards or if we were really, really lucky, a Sailormoon movie on VCD - oh yes those were the days!

  9. Here's a comment in sporadic bulletpoints:
    1. Um there are so many stunning flowers over in the UK! Sakura and now yellow blossoms? I gotta come over the springtime someday. :P
    2. I really dislike the English dubs of Sailormoon. The girls sound rather stupid.
    3. I tried to read your blog in Bejing but couldn't get on (along with Google, Facebook, Dropbox) so I thought I'd leave comments all over your posts because I'm now so very grateful for being back in HK where I can Youtube to my heart's content.

  10. Oh Sam you're awesome. Here are my responses to your sporadic bulletpoints:
    1. Yes Spring and Summertime blooms are really lovely in the UK! Come over and we can go explore!
    2. Me too - if I can't get Cantonese then Japanese is cool. It's all about those over the top non-speech sounds!
    3. I'm glad you're back too and I can't wait to catch up on ALL your recent travels!! Yay!

  19. I knew you would be a fan! I've watched maybe 2/3 episodes but I keep forgetting to watch it! It's the same nostalgia watching it now - so so good!

  20. They had Luna too but the t-shirt didn't look as good. I love that you know what I mean when I say crescent moons bring back some serious memories! I so want to watch some Sailormoon now.. Thanks for your ever-lovely comment! xxx

  21. Thanks Valerie! I didn't really say much about the skirt but I'm so pleased with it. Denim skirts are quite good all year round aren't they? Can't wait to wear it when it's no-tights weather!

  31. Yay skirt twins! It's such a nice shape and fit isn't it? I've seen really similar ones in Topshop but this UO one is the better design I think! x
