Huge revamp... and why?

Hey everyone! Just a heads up that I've changed the name and design of my blog completely, and hopefully for the last time. (No, you do not have to 'refollow', I am simply renaming the blog!)

Original URL and title: dailydoseofgenius.blogspot.com (Your daily dose of girl power)
New: sunlight--streaming.blogspot.com (the light that shone)

I guess it's only after I've been writing (for about a year) that I realised what my aim in blogging fashion and beauty was. 

It was never about putting on a different appearance, or being different, or fitting into society's standards of beauty. It was always about having the real you still evident underneath. I just wasn't sure how to go about it. 

And now I know. You can see from my fashion and makeup styles that most of it is minimal. And that's the style that I really truly enjoy. So without further ado, I present to you...

the light that shone
sunlight--streaming.blogspot.com
Fashion and beauty - trends, tips, recommendations and reviews, but natural, the way it should be

The reasoning behind my new name: In photography, light shouldn't overpower the photo, nor should it be devoid of proper lighting. Instead, there needs to be a proper balance to give the photo an organic feel, and it is this light that I hope to write with my blog.

Thanks for sticking with me for this long - and here's to a long future! :D

Note: I will also be tackling my banner and blog theme, however that will come within the next few days.

Till next time!

Journal post 20 - Day Out with friends

Wow, has it really been a month since my last update?! Ahhh... I bet you guys are thinking:

SHAME ON YOU SHAME ON YOUR FAMILY SHAME ON YOUR COW Mulan references for the win

But really, I have been busy out of my brain with schoolwork. :( Even now I'm working on a Chemistry assignment (shhh)

I also owe a lot of reviews -pokerface- I'll be writing them up soon, and scheduling them instead. 8) 

Now let's start! 

Before my friends and I met up, I bought some macarons to eat~ They're from Breadtop and the introductory special was $1 per macaron and for 10 macarons bought, 2 were given free!

 
With two of my close friends, I went to the CBD to eat and take purikura. That's pretty much all we did, but it was so much fun pulling silly expressions and editing random emoji and deco onto those images! 

We ate at Ichiban Boshi, and had the most amazing melon soda drinks~




And then we took purikura! We spent two hours at the machines, and it was surprisingly tiring... Though that was probably because while editing, I was perched on the edge of the seat which was meant for two, not three people haha...

We also tried the claw machines which I failed at so I was pretty annoyed (luckily I only spent $2!) 

I bought quite a few staple items from Dotti (lace tank, white tank, black tank) which in total was $20! And I went to Morning Glory to buy a notebook to stick all the purikura in. I also bought a mask~

What did I wear~? 


I really like the houndstooth and red colour trends! So elegant and very fall ^_^ I also received my products from Sasa.com (two boxes of sheet masks and moisturiser~) which I will also review shortly.

So how's it been for you guys? ^_^ Busy? Fun? Let me know in the comments below! ^_^

Till next time~!
