Where on earth have I been?!


Gone off the grid once again just as I've stated in my previous post that I was going to post another video. Excuse me while I laugh at myself.

Have no fear for I am still here! *cheese*

I've been doing a revamp of the site, put up a new theme, downloading things I need to make my blogging experience fun!

My mind keeps changing on my video background as my room is furnished awkwardly. I'll have to shift things around so I can film again properly.

I've just finished taking a lot of pictures of beauty products I purchased myself and can't wait to share it on the blog.

I'll be back soon!

Soft Peach Tone Makeup Look using Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette by Too Faced Cosmetics

Soft Peach Tone Makeup Look using Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette by Too Faced Cosmetics



After dealing with such headaches when it comes to upgrading software, I'm finally able to upload my first YouTube video! It's a little bumpy because I've never needed to edit with a voiceover before. I don't know if I like doing voiceovers or not...it feels awkward...haha! But I do love to edit for fun even though I've never uploaded my other videos publicly. But here it is now, open to the public.

The highlight of the video is the Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette by Too Faced Cosmetics. Yes, I'm very late to the party. Around 5 months late, maybe? But it's finally in my hands and within smelling distance!

I've said that I was going to upload a review and swatch video but I ended up filming the tutorial first because it was much faster to edit. I wanted to put something up as I promised the review 2 weeks ago...lol...and then my FCP & OS had to be upgraded at the same time. The review video and post should be up soon. Stay tuned!

Disney Princess Fashion Series

Disney Princess Fashion Series


Disney cartoons have been a part of my childhood since I can remember. I just love the old, classic fairy tale princess stories even though I didn't have the urge to dress up like one of them. Although, I was quite obsessed with Belle's golden dress that I asked my mom if she could stitch one for me, and she did! I think I was 6 at the time? Well, I still have that dress and it's safely kept in my treasure chest.

I've been wanting to do a Disney fashion inspired post for a long time now and what better way to do it than through Polyvore? You could spend hours on there, it's not even funny. Actually, I have made these fashion sets two years ago and never got around to publishing it here on the blog so here they are now. Also, I was thinking on whether or not I should do a Princess Moana set but the movie hasn't been released yet and I want to see all her outfits on screen before making one.

If you don't know who Princess Moana is, she is a character in the upcoming Disney animated film "Moana" and she is the first Polynesian princess to join the princess lineup. It will be released around November 2016 and I just can't wait for a new Disney Princess film!

If you are a Disney fanatic like me, I'm sure you can identify which outfit set belongs to which princess without looking at the names. I wanted to imitate the feel of all their outfits that were shown in their films and make it possible for day-to-day and party wear. Enjoy scrolling through!

Polyvore Post: Inspired by Pantone Color of the Year 2016 - Rose Quartz

Polyvore Post: Inspired by Pantone Color of the Year 2016 - Rose Quartz


Surprise! I have returned from the cave I've been dwelling in.

Remember when I said some beauty product posts will be coming up? Yes, that was last July. (lol) Well, the nearly one-year hiatus has come to a close and I'm back to actually publish these posts. I was actually debating on whether or not I would make video reviews and swatches about the products or just posts on the blog. Clearly, the debate lasted quite a while. I've decided that I will do both because it sounds like fun!

Anyway, as I prepare those posts and videos to be finalised, here's a Polyvore set inspired by one of Pantone's Color of the Year 2016 - Rose Quartz. The other color is called Serenity and I tried making a set from it as well but I didn't really connect with any of the items in that color on the site so let's just enjoy the beauty that is rose quartz for now.

Favourites from the Pre-Fall 2015 Collections [Part 2]

Favourites from the Pre-Fall 2015 Collections [Part 2]


After even more centuries have passed by, here is Part 2! Have you already seen Part 1?
  • Absolutely loving Monique Lhuillier’s Pre-Fall 2015 Collection! If all my chosen picks could walk straight into my closet, I would be grateful. From a chic city chick to a fairytale princess, the collection has it all.
  • Oscar de la Renta - Don’t you just love the hot pink lining that is trying to peep through? I personally would not wear the colour in full force, so I’m loving the subtlety.
  • Badgley Mischka - Such beautiful fabrics! The black/navy blue with silver detailing caught my eye immediately. Don’t you agree that it would make you feel regal? I do!

Favourites from the Pre-Fall 2015 Collections [Part 1]


It's time to gawk at new runway looks! The Pre-Fall 2015 collections look fabulous, to say the least. I will be sharing my favourites in 5 parts so keep an eye out.

As I mentioned before in a previous post, following the updates of seasonal collections is insane! I still don't know how people do it. Obviously, people who have staff. I need staff. *rolls eyes at self*

Haha, just kidding! While it would make posting a breeze, it's not what my blog is about. I let two seasons pass by as I couldn't find one item I liked. I know...what? I know you know what I'm talking about. Finally, I found eye candy in Pre-Fall 2015.

Favourites from the 2015 Academy Awards Red Carpet

Favourites from the 2015 Academy Awards Red Carpet


HAI everyone! This blog has awakened once again. Oh look, it's 2015 already...where on earth have I been?! Apologies for the absence but life got in the way for a bit. I know. Isn't that annoying? I've decided to change the format of some posts so let's see how it goes. :)

Let's start the blog this year with a post on my best dressed favourites from the 2015 Academy Awards. My top favourite this year is Jennifer Lopez in her beautiful Elie Saab gown. I usually wouldn't choose a dress in that colour but I will have to ignore that as the design speaks for itself.

My second favourite is Rosamund Pike in that red wonder by Givenchy. I have been loving that type of detailing on the waistline as it makes your waist appear smaller. We all want that, don't we? ;)

Have a look at the rest of the list and see if your Best Dressed choice made the cut!

Holiday Gift Guide for Her 2014

Holiday Gift Guide for Her 2014


Good day, one and all! It is 11 days till Christmas and I’ve decided to put together a quick little gift guide for you if you are still scrambling around for gift ideas.

I guess I can call this a "favourites" list as well, since I have tried & own most of the products mentioned and can vouch for their quality.

I have put the prices as well to give you an idea on their cost, not including the shipping fee, so keep that in mind if you intend to purchase online. You'll notice it jumps back and forth between $ and £ because I browsed many websites looking for some of the items. Oh, and one random €! I've added little tidbits on some to give you more suggestions from the same category.

Oh I know, most of the items I've listed are expensive and not everyone can splurge like crazy. I wept as I typed them in. Want. Need. Where's Money. So I've scoured around Pinterest for some fun DIY projects you can do instead! You will find that at the bottom of the post.

I hope you like it! Happy shopping & happy DIY-ing!
