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

 

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.

 


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!

Review: The Neutrogena Deep Clean Eye & Lip Makeup Remover

 

Neutrogena Deep Clean Eye & Lip Makeup Remover

 

The very first lesson every girl has learnt in the makeup world is this: Remove it at the end of every day. Ever since we’ve dabbled in the world of foundation, blush and eye colour, we’ve been told how important it is to take it all off again. And so on top of finding that perfect facial cleanser, we also need to now consider makeup removers. Oh, what a chore!

 

My favourite makeup remover is the Shu Uemura Ultime8 Cleansing Oil, which has made it into my list of favourite beauty items. It’s expensive but every make up maniac must have a good makeup remover! The only thing about this cleansing oil is that it gives me blurred vision during the day, so I sought high and low for a remover specifically for eye makeup.

 

I wasn’t willing to splurge again on a second makeup remover, so a trip to the local drugstore was sufficient. Thankfully, I found the Neutrogena Deep Clean Eye & Lip Makeup Remover!

OOTD: The Back Slit

 

OOTD: ASOS Open Back Shell Top

 

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

 

Giveaway on Laced Ivory

 

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

 


OOTD: The Pouffy Chicwish A-Line Midi Skirt

 

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!

5 Classic Gold Bracelets/Bangles of the Moment

 

Classic Gold Bracelets

I love you Cartier but I gave my money to Chanel.

 

Is it just me, or does everyone own a piece of jewellery that they wear all the time – even in the shower? I used to have a necklace, bracelet and a ring on me and never took them off but as I write this, only the necklace has stayed (you’ve seen it in all my previous my outfit posts). The bracelet I wore was a gift from Mr. Ratatouille. It broke one day and I never got down to getting it fixed at the jeweller’s. The ring was my 21st birthday present from an aunt and godmother and holds a special meaning to me.

 

I know I should mend that bracelet but I just can’t help window shopping around for another one. Here are 5 classic gold bracelets I found (not including the Cartier Love Bracelet, which I can only dream of):

This was probably the best day we had in Sydney. We visited Featherdale, a little farm off the city centre, that housed some of Australia’s most common and treasured wildlife. I got to pat a furry koala and had fun feeding and playing with wallabies running freely around the place!
