How to Pack for a Staycation – Beauty Edit

 

DSC 8645new2 How to Pack for a Staycation   Beauty Edit

 

Hello beauties! As you’re reading this, I’m probably updating Instagram with my staycation pictures. That’s right, Mr. Ratatouille and I are making up for future lost time, as our work is going to separate us for a while in the coming months. Of course we’re dreading it but we refuse to sit around and mope, so we’re celebrating being together whenever we can. And what better way than some alone time, away from prying eyes?

 

As with all staycations, I always pack a bunch of things, such as skincare and makeup. Over time, the number of things I carry have reduced and today, I’m going to show you how you can pack for a staycation using a cooler bag.

Review & Tutorial: The Laneige Sparkling Party 2014 Holiday Collection

 

DSC 8592new Review & Tutorial: The Laneige Sparkling Party 2014 Holiday Collection

Now take me away.

 

Hello mid-November! The more each day passes by, the more it’s time to sparkle. The year-end season is always my favourite time of the year because things start mellowing and everything just becomes more relaxed. This is how the entire year should be like!

 

I got my hands on this collection a day after my company’s disco themed dinner and dance (what a waste, I know) and immediately fell in love. It’s seriously got everything you need in it to sparkle and yet it’s not over the top. Before I dive into the review and let you in on how best to use this, might I just add this little message: Get it while you can!

 

The Laneige Sparkling Party 2014 Holiday Collection is a cute little box of 2 Water Drop lip tints, 2 glitter nail lacquers and a glitter eyeshadow duo.

Chamomile Scrub Recipe with Rose, Himalayan Pink Salt and more!

 

Title Pic Chamomile Scrub Recipe with Rose, Himalayan Pink Salt and more!

 

Himalayan salt has been one of my current favourite ingredients, especially for making scrubs. Not only does it have all 84 natural minerals found in Mother Earth (it’s got a long history of being around for 250 million years), it’s also got a lovely pink colour. When I made this scrub and used it on my legs, I found it promoted healing of the wounds at the back of my heels.

 

Today’s scrub is best used when you need to relax, as it features rose and chamomile. Here are some of the things you’ll need:

Workplace Essentials Vol. 002

Previously, in the first installment of this new series on the blog, I picked out some pieces from The Style Store and put them together, showcasing them as a potential part of your perfect office outfit. Today, I’m going to be sharing about my current obsession: skirts!

 

 Workplace Essentials Vol. 002

 

I love skirts. They’re feminine; come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and prints; and the men don’t get it. That makes it feel like they’re exclusive! Some women out there aren’t the skirt type of girl and that’s perfectly OK. Not everyone’s a shorts type of person, or a tank top kind of person either. But me? I cannot survive without them.

 

Of course it’s definitely more convenient to be in pants because you can take bigger strides or run after the bus, but skirts add this certain ladylike feel to your entire look. Pair them with heels, no matter how high (or not), and nobody would ask you to help lift that box.

 

Today I’m going to show you some common styles that suit the workplace. Most of them are from Zalora, where you can actually get many things at an affordable price (and reliable shipping). Do check out their online fashion magazine in Singapore too, where you can get some ideas about what to match your skirts with.

 

The Classic Pencil Skirt

 


350 Workplace Essentials Vol. 002


 

Pencil skirts are a great way to add formality to your look. They go well with blazers and any tops you might have for the office, even frilly ones. Pencil skirts tell others you mean business. They show others that you’re confident enough to be wearing them despite knowing how challenging they can be, especially since they do restrict some form of motion. For those of you who work hard to remain in shape, pencil skirts also let others know (and remind yourself) that you’ve got your life in order – even if you really are in fact having a little break down. The best time to wear them are when you have to make a presentation to a group of people, though really, I wear them almost every day.

Say hello to my first fashion collaboration! A friend of mine, Camy, posted in a Facebook group to ask if any fashion bloggers wanted to collaborate, and I seized the chance. After all, fashion and style are all about having fun, getting to know people and letting your creative juices flow. So I jumped on the bandwagon.
