The thank u note

tumblr_nw7sqeKfmX1twftujo1_500

i first start this blog to share some positive energy in my life and recently i realize the past few posts are so pathetic and full of complains about the wrongs of my life.

I dont have any excuses about that but now i have to tell myself to change and try to see the wonderful in the world and live.

for the last 2 weeks i ve been having insomnia, it is not because i drank too much coffee or anything ( i quit coffee for like 2 wks now) . I only thought it was stress until 2 days ago , i came down with a really bad flu and fever.( Just for ur information, i had a fever only 1 month ago  and back to uni, i only got sick once a year and i drunk,smoke and clubbing all the time)

The i realize i never admit to myself that my anxiety is actually taking over. i never thought my anxiety is this serious,  i guess my body did realize it .

i dont really know what to do but actually live more positively from now on, surround myself with good energy .

for once  , i will have a thank u note everyday to see the good in all the bad of my life.

i know i am scared of so many things .

I dont trust anyone but myself not even my parents.

i told myself every time my life couldn’t get any worse but life just kept having me in the most challenging position.

i worried i would never be successful and employed again, an i even though through when i want to die and wrote a suicide  note already. For now, nothing is changed but an adult realization.

i have thought of giving up but the little self-esteem i have in me kept me going for so long .

Today, i want to thank myself for holding on for this long.

ANd i will say this to myself , u r gonna to be  okay just hold on.

the worst JOB interview ever

( this is part my life and maybe some others people’s life )

 

How many job interviews can u do in a life time ? the answer would be countless unless u r an entrepreneur then u ‘ll free from the hustle!

First of all, i have went to many job interview to know what kind of manager they are and what kind of people u will be working with ( not to be cocky but the key is to look them in the eyes……..)

This friday, it ‘s pulling the whole day and still i managed to go to the interview at Onlylady.com in Beijing. ( i am just gonna the name out there since i gotta the right of speak and i really dont give a F***)

I was worried i was going to be late so i called ahead to let the HR know then i managed to find the company in a samll alley way .(they got like a Villa with their two-part of the business (onlylady&KIMISS)

waited for a while and got my interviewer。。。

i said Hi ,didn’t really get a greeting back (okay, it raining and its friday so whatever ..)

Then she went straight to ” lets hear ur self introduction then”

Sure, did those loads of time in UK how hard to do in Chinese.

BLAHBLAH…(u get how u need to show u self to impress someone)

While i am talking, she is literally reading my CV without acknowledging me , i mean WTF, what the point of me talking if u dont even pay attention to it….(should just give u a minute to read the page or …..)

what annoys the most is she just give me the look of “u r all right and i am better ‘

Then she is like ‘so u dont really have like two months experiencing working  in CHINA then”

i am like ‘yeah’  just moved back to China or like 7 month so ….(but since when working experience in another contury doesn’t count as working Experiences !!!! i mean hello!

So lets continue, just forget the fact i worked during every uni holiday in UK.

Then she starts to judge  my salary exception which i wrote 7k up (in RMB) , i dont really get why since their job subscription clearly wrote 6k-8k. i fucking wrote a number in between so if u cant offer that much money dont write that much to confuse people. Truth runs both ways/\!!!!!!!

What annoys me the most is she just keeping giving the vibe that i am not great like her.

U know how i get the vibe ? she just kept bragging about how she manage the whole team and got all the connection by herself ….i mean WOW,real impressive !

Then she continues like ” do u have other questions ” i am like i did asked a few but u answered them by telling how great u r so i am done……

In the end ,i just want to get out there and have a cigarette .

i have never met someone like that ,girl! u need to learn how to respect other people .

I have done many interviews in UK and Korea, i never met any manager that shows no respect and interest on the interviewees!!

They all shows their interest and what i have to say and my understanding about the job and the company. Some of them even take notes.

i dont know its a culture thing or i just have shit luck but i was pissed and i have to talk about it cause this is not okay and in someway this is why bully happened in workplace.

so i said it now, i have to ,i cant stand people who doesnt respect others no matter what ur social status is and  in what kind of situation .!

 

 

so next time we will have something fun ~

The take overs in fashion

when u r business major,u tend to think everything in a rational way or that is what u should be.

with my remaining passion towards fashion industry so far, i will discuss some crazy things in fashion industry by uactually put my degree in good use.

 

Brand take overs

Coach buys Kate Spade New york.

Well, hands down for Coach, great business move  as far as i concerned.  This is for sure a well thought take over.  From a business point, Coach does targeted more customer segments than Kate Spade. THe classical Coach bag and the new come back collection with a series of celebrate support ,also, have mention Ariana Grande ‘s dog. Who thought of that.

Kate spade, on the other hand, well, decent price and weridly though materials on their accessories . It’s hard as rock in a bad way. Besides their fun, bright theme park style, they do lack of copmetitive advantages compare to other brands ( cue the Moschino show).

So in conclusion, it’s win for both sides. BUT we all have wait and see for a long run…

 

Kors takes Choo

I was a bit shocked when i heard about this ..

why Choo,why, just WHY!!!

i dont really know what actually happened in the Choo house but i really though Choo is doin fine with its Shoe collection . ……..

OKay, now i kinda of get it , i mean besides that, Choo didn’t really put out some high profiled items out there. Yeah, they did luch that collection of  Candy clutch. But Kors sales more on thoes.  Still, Kors does give out some “cheap products ”vibe……

all in all,  personally, i do think Choo is trying to expand their markets. We will come back to this in 6 months….

So if u r here to judge my thoughts then go somewhere else caues my editor already jumped on that.

If u r here to offer more data and share ur thoughts as a customer. Then fire away.

 

Stay icy~

 

 

Did i tell u I am Chinese……

(Did i tell u i speak Chinese and I interns in Hearst Magazine China and this is the kind of article my editor ask me to write and also, i felf bullied and left out in my internship …….so there u go enjoy the death of my writing&fashion  passion

Anti-bully

it is a tough topic to talk about, so i will skip my usual jokes.

Firsly of all, this is happening in every cultural, every industry and most imprantly ,everyone’s personal life.

For me, when i reflect on my life. i have a period that i balmes myself for whatever happened on me (the reason for my depression)

(okay, i’ll fucking skip those misreable past since i need to move on)

And with all the experiences i went through, i am as well a victim of bully.

For the record, when u r been bullied u will know. People may  not realize they r bulling someone but the victim will know.

There are so many reason that people are been bullied but for whatever reason ,IT IS NOT OKAY.

# u r the newbie

#u r fat

#u t the DUFF

#u r not from here

#  u r from the hood

………

take a look of people around me and tell me if u felt down simply because someone’s comments

People who are famous, they r bing cyber-bullied by those who hide behind a screen

……..

so whereever u r, stand up and speak out

 

 

 

 

Ink-ed

Nothing will be right unless something is wrong

            U will be no one  until u r somebody

                    we will own nothing unless we lose something

I will be alone until i find a way to see through the darkness

                                we will always be hurt unless we choose to let it go

There will be no answers towards happiness until we start to question the bitterness 

Life is a myth until we learn to regulate it by our own rules

Breaking News in Fashion

Follow up by Trump’s election, it’s an endless of March and statement making. I don’t need to tell u the various of political moves  fashion industry presented to show their strong options on the Trump family.

Instead, there are some rather curious news i read (mainly from Twitter) in fashion had me wonder how far this industry can go.

#1 See now Buy now

Well, i think this is a new business structure which was introduced last year by Burberry.  It becomes quite huge in 2017.

U may think this is to benefit the customers but think again, it’s another brilliant idea for boosting sales. And yet, it is not as successful as the business planned. Let’s just say it is not every brand’s cup of tea unless u r Tommy Hilfiger.

I am quite glad to find out that a lot of brands re-consider this ‘new’ trend.

I mean as a regular shopaholic  i don’t really mind when i get pieces off the runway as long as there are shit loads of people praise about it. 

#2Body confident

The way i approach this which is about control ur body with a healthy lifestyle.

If u r not happy about it then do something about it such as work out and healthy diet.

U do realise those plus-sized people who talk about body confident are famous , popular and financially  stable right?We may have more to lose.

And to hell, if u r bullied or laid off because of ur body size, maybe u should really take a look of urself and think about your lifestlye then make some change. Not to body shaming anyone but blindly follow this whole body confident thing is not the right way.

#3 Uniqlo is threatening to leave U.S

Do we really superised about this? I just want to say “International” might have a really different definition in Trump’s dictionary ( could be in the T-terrorist section)  

#4 3D printing

Hey, think there will not be any sweatshop scandal ( Yo, NIke) and i assume we can figure out a way to make them environmental sustainable.

#5 Rent designer Jewelry 

GO to switch.com  $29/month 

#6 The Pepesi Ads 

Only because it is involved Kendall Jenner so its  fashion.

All i can say is the company might need to hire new R&D team or variety race of people or just read the news more.

#7 Robot on Logistic

Remember, we are joking about how Robot gonna take over the world. It’s happening!!!

Take a guess about who is ready to embrace this ? Yeah, it is Amzon. Amzon’s  logistic  department is stepping up the game. ( hey, Topshop, watch and learn! its been a month) 

Remember, u can really know what is going on in the world through Twitter. ( lets hop the whole fake news thing will not happen again)

Okay, i am just gonna go to send an email to Topshop customer service now.
