FRIDAY JEANS




Vintage Polo shirt / Mango jeans / Zara heels / Louis Vuitton Bergamo 

Friday equals boyfriend jeans. It may be very obvious but I'm really veering towards this comfy denims lately. Can't be more happy to dress them up or down for different occasions. Today I happen to sport it with a classic button down shirt and slip on some glitzy heels.

Hope you all like it :)

HAPPY COLORS



Promod jacket / Topman shirt / Zara skirt (old) / Massimo Dutti shoes / Michael Kors Runway watch

Almost all of my outfits lately have been neutrals..quiet or maybe understated. To be honest, I rarely wear a lot of colors. But who says grays, blacks, whites and neutrals aren't happy colors? 

As for this look, I love combining different textures...Black leather jacket, snakeskin skirt, together with these shoes makes the look complete! Happy weekend!

IHOP HITS TOWN

New York Cheesecake Pancakes
Big Steak Omelette
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Belgian Waffle Combo
Appetizer Sampler
Swiss Mocha

International House of Pancakes (IHOP) Philippines

If you still don't know, I have the hugest biggest largest romance when it comes to breads....and pancakes are no exception. Many have been raving this American franchise restaurant and a 1 hour queue is not bad at all than we expected!

Super fluffly pancakes, awesome syrup selections, sweet and savory palate left me satisfied as a child and I couldn't wait to try more! I just have to deal with the guilt afterwards!

Tempting much? :)

SAME BUT DIFFERENT



Zara shirt/ Forever21 sweater/ Uniqlo jeans/ Zara flats / Tory Burch bracelet

One of my favorite style looks is simple layering of collared shirts and sweaters. Even if the weather is against me, I don't mind at all!

Just another take of the same color combinations.

WEEKEND



Mango blazer/ Men's tee / H&M skirt / Zara shoes / Tory Burch bracelet

I certainly love maxi skirts as much as I love jeans, casual and comfortable.. and this actually sits tight in every move which makes it all worth to wear. just throw over a blazer to feel more dressed up! 

Happy weekend! :)

TIE IT UP




Vintage plaid shirt/ Forever21 denim shirt/ Zara skirt and shoes/ Swatch watch

As a child, I remember myself tying a jacket around my waist and it was a pure utilitarian thing since I easily get cold. In effect, free kid...no more trouble running and playing! Seriously.

A lot have been reviving this trend and it's either you like it or hate it kind of thing. What are your thoughts? :) But growing up in the 90's, I still sort of love it. I did it then and I'll do it now...

And before I forget, I also want to greet you all a HAPPY HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! This is just a casual outfit I plan to put on. What's yours?:)

BASIC OR NOT




Men's shirt/  Marks & Spencer skirt/ H&M belt/ Zara heels/ Swatch watch

At first, I'm quite skeptical with the skirt having the thought if it would last me for a long time - Basic or not? Well, it did actually occur to me that it will..I think I fell in love with it. And I guess we all need one of those pieces that will challenge us to experiment and create new looks. Now I am back to my old palette, and I wore it with a loose button down shirt and my favorite two toned heels.

Also, since the hot weather prevents us from too much layering, simple half tucking gives an illusion and I always love doing it. Do you love it too?

CNY 2013


Topshop sweater / H&M jeans / Zara flats / Christian Dior bag

We always celebrate Chinese new year by wearing something red so I decided to go with a simple red sweater! To give a unique take on such a simple look, this jeans just makes the whole outfit work. I can't describe how much I love patches!

Let us welcome the year of the water snake! Wishing everyone full of peace, good health, prosperity and lots of happiness :)

MY EVERYDAY NATURAL MAKEUP



IN THE MOMENT:

Urban Decay Naked Palette / Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation / Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes / Mac 217 brush

Similar to clothing, everyone has their own signature look when it comes to makeup. These are the days when you just tend to grab easy and comfortable pieces and wear it in less than 5 minutes or so. 

In the same manner, I always find myself gravitating to these items for an everyday look. Recently, I've been in the phase of using Lancome's Teint Miracle Foundation for a light and natural looking skin that almost every brand has been introducing lately. This truly works for dry skin with its hydrating properties. For eyes, I usually sweep one to two shades on my lids and a darker shade on my upper lash line with the famous and trustee Naked palette. This has been with me for at least 2 years now..having Naked 2 still waiting inside my drawer! Oh dear how long does it take to finish them? For my favorite eyeshadow brush, I'd have to say it's the 217 from Mac. It is an all around brush - good for all over the lids, crease and for blending! For mascara, I wasn't convince with Lancome's Hypnose Doll Eyes even after watching so much good reviews until I tried it. It lengthens, volumizes, and It just works amazingly! It really does give your eyes a doll-eyed effect. 

To complete the look, a touch of my favorite blush and lipstick which I'll be sharing some time soon!

What's your everyday natural look? :)

ALMOST BLACK


Vintage blazer/ Topman shirt/ H&M jeans/ Promod shoes/ Forever21 neckpiece

Similar to any white tees, I suggest that grays are indeed a staple to everyone's closet as well...And today is just another coincidental happening of combining basic blacks before the weekend's Chinese New Year celebration! Paired it with heels to offset the masculine look :)

I hope you like it! xx

NO GRAY AREAS



Zara sweater / Mango skirt / Bruno Magli shoes (old)/ H&M necklace / Tory Burch bracelet

I think there is not one item that I've tried on more than sweaters and on the contrary, this completely reached out to me. I'm conquered by the thought of mixing some sporty and feminine pieces and this look immediately came together in less than 5 minutes. It's nice having the black and white trend back for summer! 

No gray areas, except for my nails...Thanks for reading:)

SECRET ESSENTIALS


Bioderma Crealine H2O Cleansing Solution/  Lancome Visionnaire Advance Skin Corrector/ Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream/ SK-II Skin Signature Eye Cream

Currently on my table. 

 I'm sure a lot of you are already familiar with Bioderma's Crealine Solution as it is massively hyped. But allow me to justify the facts, this product in my opinion is on top of my list. This dual purpose cleanser/ makeup remover does sinks deeply into the skin and hydrates..totally leaving me fresh and clean.  I can't describe it completely though, but the formula is identical to water, gentle and fragrance-free. I've been using it for almost 3 months now and I don't expect myself getting off this band wagon anytime soon.  

Next up is Lancome's Visionnaire that a lot of people have been recommending as well. It claims three things: wrinkles, pores and evenness. All I can say is you have to use it for at least 3-4 weeks to see improvement! 


When it comes to eye creams, I do prefer thick consistencies as I am troubled with dry skin. For a change, I tried using SK-II's skin signature eye cream. What convinced me is the formula but it somehow gives a little stinging sensation when there is direct contact with the eyes. Still, great product but I suppose I'm going back to my tried and tested Bobbi Brown's Extra Eye Repair. 


As you may have noticed, I am very much impressed with Bobbi Brown's skincare for a while. I've shared this hydrating face cream previously and I'm still on the same container. But I'm planning to get their extra repair line for it does improve and hydrate my skin even more.


What are your thoughts? xx
