How to pick heels Top 10 Tips on Picking the Right Pair of Heels

 

Have you ever taken those type of quizzes that let you find out what type of heels you should wear, based on your personality?

For the rest of us who can’t do without them, here are some of my tips on picking the right pair of heels, so you don’t regret your decision to swipe that card.

OOTD: At the Derby

Who goes to the Derby? Me! Who goes and bets on horses at the Derby? Me! Who loses? Me. But, who also has a pom-pomique fascinator? Me!

 

This year, I wore a 3-year-old white eyelet dress, one that I still normally wear to work.  I decided on the demure look this day, and complemented it with neutral shades, so as not to draw attention away from the fascinator.

Link Love: Hosting the Perfect Cosy Get-Together

 


July 2014 Combined new Link Love: Hosting the Perfect Cosy Get Together

 

For the past 5 years or so, ever since I’ve lived abroad and then came home to live with my parents again, I’ve been wishing for my own place. Just a nice, little abode that I can call a place of my own, where I can have moments of silence just to read, or a cosy point for friends to get together and enjoy one another’s company.

 

While it’s going to take me a while to get there, here’re some tips for those of you lucky ones who have reached that stage of life, where you can host small, intimate parties for your loved ones.

 

1. If you’ve bought a new pair of shoes to go with your outfit, Jillian from Coffee, Light and Sweet tells us how to break into them without any pain.

2. The people at Pinkous let us in on the code to hair colour! Bookmark this page and bring it to your stylist at your next dye appointment.

3. Keira at A Pretty Penny lets us in on 10 beauty cheats that every girl should know, perfect for that last minute fix!

4. This may be an older post, but the tip is still highly relevant. Sasha from So Sasha tells us how to turn your preloved, used up candle into a brush holder. What a great way to recycle and decorate your dresser or powder room!

5. Finally, Nicole at Vanilla Extract teaches us how to keep our wines chilled but not diluted.

OOTD: Making Waves

I must admit it: Shopping is my drug! I don’t get into serious trouble like Rebecca Bloomwood, but I totally understand when she sees something and then tells herself she really needs it.

 

Like this dress I saw while window shopping at the mall one day. Yes it’s a joke. Window shopping at a mall? Hah, as if that ever happens!

3 Ways to Wear Prints

 

Skirt Print 3 Ways to Wear Prints
 

Believe it or not, everyone can wear prints, even you! Yes, you! Maybe you’re not so keen on bright, bold colour blocking. Or maybe you just prefer sticking to something more understated, something that can take you from day to night, from weekday to weekend. But prints show off your attitude, girl! Here are three ways to wear prints, whether you’re the sassy babe, or the more casual, low-down type.

 


 3 Ways to Wear Prints

Dress | Romwe

Hat | Romwe

Bag | Romwe

Earrings | Style by Stories

Lipstick | Lipstick Queen

Heels | River Island


 

If you like bold colours, why not go all out and accessorise with a vintage bowknot hat? Any jewellery you wear should not take the attention away from the dress, so pearl earrings can do the trick! Show off those gams you’ve got with power heels (sandals are a great chance to let the world lay its eyes upon your magnificent pedicure). A small body bag fits just about enough to bring you around town, and a pink lippie adds that final touch of colour to your complexion so you aren’t overpowered by all the jazz!

OOTD: The Back Slit

What does one do when one’s sick of staying bedridden due to a back injury? One leaves said bed and gets some air!

 

I hurt my back quite suddenly – and unexpectedly – and the doctor gave me some painkillers for it. But this was Day 3 of being on meds and staying at home all day, so I went out for a quick brunch with the sister at a Chinese restaurant in town. Because my back wasn’t all healed, I totted a clutch and kept things light.

Giveaway: Anna Sui + Crabtree & Evelyn

 

DSC 6993new Giveaway: Anna Sui + Crabtree & Evelyn

 

It hasn’t been an easy journey for the blog so far, and today I’d just like to say a big thank you to all of you who have been supporting me and believing in me. Today’s giveaway is nothing extravagant. As an established beauty blogger, I get sent beauty samples every now and then. But I only have one face, and can’t finish using every single product in my stash, which also includes products that I buy on my own.

 

The Anna Sui Rose Cheek Colour is in shade 300, consisting of very lovely shade of pinks and shimmer that would suit every skin tone. The Hand Therapy from Crabtree & Evelyn is another skincare product that I love, especially since I stay in an air conditioned environment quite often to beat the heat. This tube’s in the revamped packaging!

OOTD: The Pouffy

We’re still in Australia this time, but now we’ve moved on to Darwin! I didn’t get any outfit shots taken in Cairns because the weather didn’t allow for it (or rather, I didn’t pack for the unexpected weather).

 

We stayed in Mary River Wilderness Retreat, where our doorstep opened right up to green lands, grazing wallabies, partying parrots and the bright blue sky every day. Hooray to no flies! This was no place for heels, and so take them off it was!

I love the Mimco Rebellious Wrist! In fact, I saw it at the airport’s while shopping around and just knew I had to get it the moment I saw it. It’s such a statement piece! You know how when you go shopping and your eyes land on something unexpected, and your heart just skips a beat? That’s exactly what happened. And it wasn’t even duty free!
