Its like you have x-ray vision...






(H&M Sheer Blouse, Velvet Leggings, UO Socks, Black Docs)
Although, I've been bumming it lately to school, I found time today afterschool to snap a few shots of me in my sheer black button-up which I rarely ever wear out. Thought it worked perfect with my velvet leggings and finished off with my classic Docs. I hope you all enjoy! Sorry I've been busy. School is kicking my ass! I'll try to update as much as possible when I find free time or when I take study breaks. xoxo!

What camera do you use? Who takes your pictures?
- When I do self-shoots at home, I use my Canon Rebel EOS XS which is a DSLR. I've been experimenting with lighting lately so expect more self-shoots because I also don't have time to meet up with my photographers nowadays because of school. When I do have a photographer, it is usually my boyfriend unless I mention otherwise. I have worked with photographers like Christopher Captain, Natt Lim and Cimon so far...If you want to do a shoot with me, shoot me an email at curiouserlia@hotmail.com.

What projects have you been featured in?
- I have been asked to model some tees for Umbrella Clothing, OneUpDaily Clothing, test shoots for both Christopher Captain and Natt Lim in L.A. and random photo shoots with #ASIANGIRLMOB. If you are interested in working with me, shoot me an email at curiouserlia@hotmail.com.

How do you make your hair wavy?
- I make my hair wavy using a lot of different methods. It just depends. I use a 1" barrel and wrap my hair around it not using the clamp. I also have a clamp-less barrel with two different size barrels from Conair (I forget the name) I think its called Infinity and I just wrap my hair around it to get tighter waves. For natural beach waves, I french braid my hair when its damp after a shower overnight and I just take out the french braid and waaa-laaa!

How did you get your hair to grow so long?
-It took me a while...I simply just leave it alone. I let it do what it wants to do. I don't cut it.

I hope this answers most of your questions. These are just the questions I get A LOT in my Tumblr ask. If you have any more questions, just ask at http://curiouserlia.tumblr.com/ask and I'll try my best to get an answer back.
Enjoy!

Valentine's Day!




(I have a thing for Gucci lol...that's my friend, Jacob's, wallet)

I know this is a late post but I had an exam to study for which I took yesterday and I got a B (yay me!) so I didn't have time to post about Valentine's Day so here it is...spent the entire day with my boyfriend, Jordan. We didn't go all-out fancy (because I just didn't want to do that) so for lunch, we went to In-N-Out and after that we watched The Vow. It was a really good movie. I loved it. I was bout to cry! Haha! We also walked around the mall (Del Amo Mall) and shopped around. For dinner, we went to eat at this place called Stacked. It was a cool restaurant. You can order from the iPad. I thought that was very neat! As far as the food goes...I didn't like what we ordered. The first couple bites were amazing but after a while I got tired of it. I hate when burgers are overdone (too many sauces and fancy shit). I just like my burgers plain. That's just me. But other than that, it was sweet of my boyfriend to take me somewhere new. If you're reading this...THANKS BOOBEAR! I LOVE YOU! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! THANKS FOR SPENDING THE ENTIRE DAY WITH ME ;-*






(H&M Top, American Apparel Riding Pants, Jeffrey Campbell Lita's, H&M Sunnies, Forever21 Bangles, H&M Gold Chain, Louis Vuitton Speedy 30)
This is what I wore that day. Pastel Pink for Valentine's Day teehee!
Enjoy!

My Next Shoe Splurge

So this month, the Cement IV's are coming out and I collect J's so of course I'm going to cop.

After I get these on February 18th and after I spoil my boyfriend and shower him with birthday gifts beginning of March (His birthday is March 13th), I will most definitely cop these next two pairs of Jeffrey Campbells as soon as they come back in stock on Solestruck or if I find them somewhere else...

Right now I am saving all my paychecks and so far, I'm saving well. I cut down on spending money on little shit like food and accessories. I gotta save up at least $400 for my boyfriend's birthday gifts, $200 for my VIP Paid Dues ticket and after that I will use the following paychecks on my shoe splurge because I deserve it (hehe!) Shoes. Shoes. Shoes! Shoes!!!! I LOVE SHOES!!!!
