Thursday, 31 December 2015

ending twenty fifteen with a quick round up of my favourite products discovered and purchases made this year. of course they are picked in accordance to colour to suit the monochromatic/ minimal its theme (let's be honest here). have i mention that i'm starting to become a korean beauty junkie? more on that when back from seoul shopping. before i sidetrack any further about korean culture, these are a couple of curated products i've been reaching out for and would consider them rather inseparable to my lifestyle.


Innit Bangkok

Sunday, 20 December 2015

an outfit throwback featuring innit bangkok latest collection. having to work with them previously on a series, they figured i love all things minimal, black and pleated. they sent me this piece without revealing and i have to say, thank you for curating the package according to my aesthetic. pleats are one of my favourite texture, as it combines the idea of both structural and fluidity — bringing in the idea of duality in a garment. innit bangkok constantly takes pride in constructing their garments in various ways and this cardigan is no exception as it can be worn as an outerwear or dress.


Minimal Nail Art

Sunday, 13 December 2015

jeanyipnail 01 jeanyipnail 02 jeanyipnail 03 for my third gel nail session with jean yip singapore, we worked on a trendy nail look. with references from korea, i finally conquered the ombre and shattered glass — two nail trends i have been meaning to try for months. to give it a feminine touch, jean yip's nail artist recommended to lace up one. impeccably skillful and patient, i doubt i will frequent other outlets/ home services any time soon.


NARS x Steven Klein

Wednesday, 9 December 2015

NARS has collaborated with iconic American photographer Steven Klein. the dark, edgy yet arresting images from Klein's cinematic moments are well translated into this collection. i'm a huge fan of Steven Klein's work as the narrative behind each image is so strong and perhaps empowering. i thought the collaboration between the two creatives was interesting as both Klein and Nars are clearly drawn to strange and unexpected beauty. all products are available at sephora. which is your favourite shade? 

on the table — 01 magnificent obsession red lip set: lipstick in flamanco, velvet matte lip pencil in mysterious red and velvet lip liner in misdemeanor 02 limited edition killer shine lip gloss: fast life (iridescent dusty rose) and special force (wild strawberry) 03 limited edition killer shine lip stick: b├ęsame mucho (deep rose-beige) 04 nail polish: black fire


Finishing Layer

Thursday, 3 December 2015

living in this slightly oversized zara blazer a little way too often and ain't guilty. i now realise the reason for my outerwear obsession — i like the fact that it completes and polishes up a sloppy look — like a cheatsheet to dressing. it is understated, modest and nothing too baring. also i've recently painted my nails in NARS black fire (under the steven klein collection), so obsessed with this shade xx


+82 Playlist

Sunday, 15 November 2015

curated a korean specific playlist to share with y'all what i've been listening to and absolutely loving.


Connected via Changi Portable Wifi

Tuesday, 10 November 2015

with holidays around the corner, i'm pretty sure most of y'all will be travelling out of town. when i travel, i love to still stay connected with my family and friends, perhaps read an article or two during long bus/ car rides and of course sharing what i've experienced via social media. during my trip to Hokkaido, i kept connected with the Changi Portable Wifi Router

what's great is that Changi Recommends provide convenient pick up/ drop off at their 24/7 counter located at all three terminals — so basically pick up before you depart, and drop it off when you've landed. the portable wifi allows you to connect up to 8 devices, which you could share/ split the cost amongst with your family/ friends. very affordable and cost saving in my opinion. in terms of wifi connectivity, i did not experience any major disconnect. however i do think it will be slower if you are in a forest/ outskirt area. for more information, head over to their website. happy holidays in advance!
