Fashion Illustration

I'm busy (again) with Uni. I know it's strange but I always feel happy that I can be busy doing fashion. People ask me why I love fashion as they could see I'm not exactly a shopaholic girl - the kind of girl the people often think about when it comes to fashion lover. I love nice clothes, that's true. But I love making nice clothes even more. I'm happiest when I'm with fashion, that I can draw something and make something. 

Here is the fashion illustration project at uni. We have to do 4 but the other 3 are still in process. We have to do a fashion illustration based on the signature style of a famous illustrator, I chose RĂ©ne Gurau, his work is fantasic!


Dreamers Guide.


How are you guys doing? I hope everything is well ^^
It's been a long time since the last time I post something but as I mentioned before I don't have time for blog anymore, but don't worry I still love blogging and everytime I got time to do it I feel very happy. My 2nd year as a fashion student is going really well, I just got results of my 1st term yesterday and I passed everything with not-so-bad marks, have to say I was lazy as usual lol.

Anyway I got an illustration that I did the other day and few pictures of...my face. Hope you enjoy! This weather is so cold really have no motivation to do anything nicely.

I just really into floral lately...

Me and my baby boy! We were trying to make a horror movie poster. Look how big he has grown now! Can't believe I have had him for 5 months already, he's a very happy bunny!

Essie "Cute as a button" - A gorgeous bright coral shade that goes on very nicely with one coat and create the gel like texture so nice I love it!

I wear red lips quite often, it just never been too much for my face and is a wonderful weapon to fight the tiredness in this weather. And a pink blush! I still love my No.7 Limited edition cream blush and my HG powder blush Nars Angelika. 

Hope you are all well and stay warm <3


The beauty of so many things

I rarely have time to blog these days. I do miss blogging and wish if I have more time for it. Here are some pics from Instagram. Follow me @theavu I update very often on there.

Sketching of a finished project. This time I tried to combine both hand drawing and computer. Need to work a bit more on the figure though.

I love handmade stuffs. The rabbit ones are from Fushigi shop, others are my own creation. Let me know if you interested on buying one, available in many colors.

The beauty of a mess on my desk. I always make sure I have everything I would need around me. Lip balm, hand cream, hair comb, my bracelet, tape measure and of course one of my most favorite mask Skinfood Aloe Vera.

A starter dish at a birthday dinner I attended recently. Doesn't taste as good as it looks though.


Uni and Photography!

I've been MIA for a looooooong time. Really sorry for no update at all but if you follow me on Twitter and Instagram @theavu you would know I'm still alive.

So I'm officially a 2nd year Fashion student now! No more Fresher, no more "1st year student doesn't know how to do this shit". Second year is extremely hard and stressful and at this stage I personally think who don't have a passion for what they are doing will find themselves lost. Luckily I'm not! I don't have enough time to sleep and play around like 1st year but I'm more excited about all the projects. No more nonsense stuffs. Because I'm enjoying my course so much so if you guys see me hardly update I really sorry but it will happens because I'm also looking for an internship for my placement year as well. Woo hoo fashion industry here I come.

Btw for a very long time no update I did finally got time to do a photoshoot with one of my new model name Lan Ly. She's gorgeous but this is my first time working with her so it's not my best yet. But still! Hope you enjoy this photo inspired by the lovely autumn. I'll post more in the next post! Thank you for stopping by.xx


A little day dreamer.

So, if you follow me on Twitter you might know I finally, after so many practice, hard work, with a very little money to collect all I need step by step, I finally open my handmade shop!

I feel a little bit sad because uni will start soon so I won't have much time like I want to create new stuffs D; But never mind! I can do it, no? After so much thinking I decided to sell through Etsy, actually I want to sell on Big Cartel but you know I don't really have an audience to support me so Etsy seems to be a better choice now. But in very near future I'll start selling handpicked items on Big Cartel so stay tuned for that :D In the mean time please visit my shop at Etsy, I'll list more creation soon! 

Yes I know they are simple and my skill is still not very good but I'll practice more! Aren't they pretty? Perfect for a simple necklace to wear everyday ^^ 


Cherry for Autumn?

Hi there~

Bad news is my Macbook pro is unrepairable and I have to sell it for a very very cheap price and have to save up to buy a new one. Yes I know you may recommend me to get a PC laptop for cheaper price, but seriously for the same chip, graphic card etc PC laptops are NOT cheaper than Macbook pro. Not to mention I really like Mac OS and Mac's screen is the best I've come across. I heard nice things about Dell ultra sharp but to be honest the price is actually higher so why not another Macbook? I'm working on many stuffs like fashion, graphic design and photography so I think I need it. But this time I'll make sure to buy Apple care. You never know what will happen.

So this time I'm still using my Dell mini, you know Dell mini is very weak it basically can't even run a HD clip smoothly so no Photoshop for me T.T I really miss blogging but I can't bear posting un-edited pictures on here, I just feel like I don't respect my viewers. But I found an website that allow me to edit pictures so I decided to blog a little bit about make-up trend this autumn.

You might notice gothic make-up is making its way back so dark lip is a must. But what's to choose? The best video you can watch about this is from Lisa Eldridge (yes that's her again), she has done a vid since last year I think about all kind of dark lip and how to wear them, also she teamed up with ELLE US for a new tutorial and introduce some new products. She has mention my all time favorite dark lipstick which is Revlon Black Cherry. I love the color, textures and especially the price. For all the drugstore lipstick I've tried, Revlon is the only one brand makes high-end quality lipstick, I'd never buy any lipstick from Mac because Revlon did a lot better. Here is me in Revlon Black Cherry. I recommend you leave the everything very natural : minimum eye make-up (I don't even wear any in this pic) groomed brows and a bit of of contour/bronzer is enough, no blush because it'll be too much, do not over bronzer because it'll look cheap and nasty. All about the lips.

Btw I know not everybody dare to wear dark lipstick, so why not try a lip balm? Korres makes awesome lip butter with hint of color, the one in Wild Rose is perfect for those who want to try this trend but don't want full dark lip. And two brighter version that's worth trying is Burberry Lip Cover in Bright Plum - a vibrant reddish plum which will not too dark, and from the high street Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in No.1 - a classic red but in the dark side which totally wearable. 

It's autumn, my favorite season of the year, and I already feel the sadness in the air. Good sadness, Precious sadness. Put a dark lip on, ladies!


A new chapter.


Long time no post (why do I say it all time *slap*). 

If you follow me on Twitter you might know I'm stuck in so many shitty things. I won't tell you the details but biggest thing is my Macbook broken itself (actually I found out that someone split some juice on it, don't know who because I lend it for some of my friends) then I sent it to repair, hopefully get it back in next week. I'm using a Dell mini which I use to read ebook ( like a lady), it's damn weak so I only can access internet and that it. No photoshop. I feel like someone chopped my right hand.

And you might notice I have a Seal Points Netherland Dwaf bunny named Totoro ! He's so precious! And I don't want to lie and sound like a crazy animal lover, my bunny is very playful sometimes crazy but I guess we are learning how to bear each other lol. This is one of my illustration about his mom - Willow and his siblings. I gave it for the breeder to say thank you. I feel I'm lucky that I sent email for him that day through pet4homes, he is a very nice guy and most of all, a true rabbit lover. Totoro is a very healthy and beautiful little bunny (soon to be a fat one I feed him like a pig lol).

Anyway I capture this moment while he is sleeping (silly bunny slept with open eyes lol). He is so cute I don't even...!

So that's it. I hope you guys enjoy this post, I'll try to blog more ok? And don't forget that I'm still working on my handmade shop, it's soon to be opened I'm very excited. Thank you for stopping by xx
