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.
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!
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.
Australia was such a great much-needed break! We finally had some time away from everything in Singapore – the heat, humidity, people (crowds), stress, too-heavy workloads, commute time – you name it, we dropped it all and left it.
Sydney was our first stop, followed by Cairns and Darwin. The weather in Sydney called for layers and covered feet most of the time and the coffee was amazing. If you love snooping around in vintage stores, this is the city to be in!
Hello from Sydney! When I packed for our trip this time, I didn’t really think it would be so cold, and I definitely didn’t think it would rain so much! But the weather is still better than what we have in Singapore and once our trip is over, I’m not so sure I can get adjusted back to the climate at home.
We’re staying at a lovely little house just along Abercrombie Street and today’s outfit was taken in the middle of a small street somewhere nearby. The thing about Sydney is that even though it’s a city, it’s still not as crowded as Singapore – and I LOVE IT.
Today I’m feeling a little pensive but am also very grateful for the break I have from work. What is life, after all, if we can’t take some time out to pause and actually live it? This month’s Link Love blog entry is about the things I currently love doing, or wish I had more time for; Capturing moments that last forever, creating memories that live in our hearts.
Attention, si vous aimez faire du shopping – en ligne! I’m a definite shopaholic at heart, mind and soul. But I also hate crowds, the humidity in Singapore and forgetting to bring my credit card out when I need it to pay for purchases. That’s why I stick to online shopping most of the time – no, wait – actually I kind of do all my shopping online, now that I think of it.
But what if you don’t have a credit card (maybe you’re too young to have one, or you need to get a supplementary card from your parents), or don’t want another one to fatten up your wallet further, but you’d still like to bag that online-exclusive discount? I have just the thing you need – MatchMove Wallet!
I’m really excited to present MatchMove Wallet to you today because it makes shopping such an incredible experience and comes with a whole bunch of benefits that normal credit cards don’t. First of all, let me introduce to you what MatchMove Wallet is all about.
Shopping is such a delight, especially when you can do it at your own time, place and comfort, and with an ease of mind.
I love it when conversations at my workplace turn into beauty talk! The most recent breakfast did-you-know topic was on gelish and how harmful this manicure technique is to the nails. Applying it on isn’t so bad but taking it off – let’s just say it strips your nails of all its sturdiness and leaves it soft, like bread dipped in milk.
My most recent gelish was done using a bright red polish and had a snakeskin pattern on the odd finger.
Knowing how destructive the removal of gelish manicures can be, plus the fact that they cost at least $20 per soak-off, I decided against paying a visit to the nail salon. Instead, here’s what I did and what you can try: Paint over it with a darker nail polish shade and let it grow out.
I finally got down to making my next video, just when I needed to get my photo taken for my new passport (next major travel trip in June)! Your passport photo is one of the most overlooked pictures you can have. I know some people don’t really bother dressing up for it – who else looks at your passport besides the customs officers, right? But I learnt from a past episode of Tyra Banks’ America’s Next Top Model that one look at your ID picture could be all it takes to make a difference. Besides, you can print out several copies of that one picture and use it for other purposes, such as your work pass or resume.
This video was such fun to film, partly because Mr. Ratatouille was my videographer and he really cracked me up big time. You’ll see me talking here and there in the video too, and that’s me giving him instructions – we’re both newbies to this filming thing. A couple of my fingers have bruises on them, souvenirs of my recent snorkelling trip.
Read on to watch the video and see the list of items I used, plus some comments I have on the overall look!
I did my second-ever video, this time on a dramatic cat eye look for Asians. The front part of the video where I applied foundation and drew in the lines for the liner aren’t included, as they weren’t filmed. My SD card had filled up pretty quickly with photos and pictures from my recent trip to Malaysia!
A little bit about creating this look:
Start with the end in mind. As an Asian, I have the typical hooded lids many Asians have. So, I begin by drawing the outline of the cat eye first and then filling it up with black – lots of it! The black colour should be visible when the eyes are fully opened, and give that extra pop of feline seduction when eyes are closed. Liquid liner on top of the gel liner helps to add an extra depth to the black shade, while eyeshadow on top of this helps to seal everything in and prevent creasing or smudging.
Hey guys! I finally got down to filming my very first FOTD video! It’s taken me 2 years to finally do this and I really don’t know why it took so long. If you’ve been following the blog, you’ll know I recently got the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette and I just can’t seem to put it down whenever I need a good neutral look.
Here’s the video, but I must warn you that not everything I did was filmed. It’s after all my first time doing this and it was quite spontaneous, actually. Hope you like it, and please subscribe to my new channel!
