What I Wore at the Gala



Events are always a good excuse to play dress up especially when comes to a formal gala. Yes, you heard me right, a full on black tie event that I may have bended the rule a bit by wearing separates instead of a full on gown. Thankfully I didn't as 90% of the ladies wore a cocktail dress anyway.

As I didn't have time to really go out a buy a new outfit, I figured I'll just rummage through my closet and see if there's anything I could wear. Luckily I have this lace mesh bralette that I got at Topshop not so long ago and this flared skirt from Zara that I got during my last trip to Hong Kong. The shoes oh my gosh, I've been getting a ton of compliments on these and I feel bad for those who are asking because I bought it on sale at Nine West over a year ago. I call these my barbie heels as they make your legs look like Barbie. Trust me, this is the only way I can describe it.

What You Need To Wear to Yoga Class

What You Need To Wear to Yoga Class



I'm a big fan of yoga and I find that it's the only exercise that I've managed to stick to for over a year now. Perhaps because I can see how it sculpts my body in a way that I wanted especially when I do it consistently. I have my days when I just couldn't drag myself to go but hey, it happens to the best of us.

The thing about yoga is that in order to practice it without all the fuzz, you have to wear the proper outfit. When I was a beginner, I couldn't be bothered to invest in a proper attire. I was literally wearing your average t-shirt and shorts only to find out later that I can see my underwear in the mirror. Not a good look. 

So let me give you the basics of what you need to wear to get you started.

A Fitted Tank - I like mine with a sports bra built in so I wouldn't have to bother about getting a separate one. My favorites are Lululemon Power Y Tank and their No Limits Tank. It comes in a wide variety of colors and I literally want to collect them all.

Yoga Pants - Lots of yogis wear bright and colorful crop pants which I wasn't a big fan before but now I'm totally obsesses. My favorite is the Teeki Hot Pants. I have yet to try Dharma Bums but it's definitely on my list.

I hope this has been helpful and let me know if you want to find out anything about my experiences in practicing yoga.

NARS Cruella: Best Red for Fair Skin?

NARS Cruella: Best Red for Fair Skin?




I love a good red lipstick especially one that is flattering on my skin tone. I have a fair skin and though most people would say that any color would suit this type, if I'm not feeling it then I'm not going to wear it.

But NARS Cruella is different. It's a shade that I could wear everyday and feel good about it. It's velvet matte finish that leaves a stain on your lips even after you wear it for hours. I'm a big fan of lipsticks that does just that, then I wouldn't have to constantly check in the mirror and reapply. We all know how troublesome reds could be but believe me this doesn't budge and you can even eat a burger with it. Wouldn't that be awesome?

The Happiness Project: One-Sentence Journal

The Happiness Project: One-Sentence Journal



I know I know, I'm so late in this bandwagon but hey, better late than never. 

Earlier this year I picked up The Happiness Project 5 Year Record Journal. After seeing a lot of people getting into this I've decided to keep one of my own and thought that it would be good to look back on what I've done on the exactly same day in a different year. I know lots of people got the Q&A version which is identical to this one, but I just find this looks a lot better.

On each page you'll get an inspiring quote and 4 lines to fill in your thoughts. So far I have been consistent and I find that it's best to do it just when you are about to dose off. That way you can reflect on what transpired and jot down the highlights of your day.

Which Nail Polish Color is Best for Which Scarf?

Which Nail Polish Color is Best for Which Scarf?



If you follow me on instagram you probably know by now how addicted I am to nail polishes. I have over 120 bottles as of my last count and for most people this is a ridiculous number. But hey, yolo. But the thing that most people don't know is that I also collect scarves. And what I like to do is to match these two together to compliment my outfit.

I like scarves that are both textured and patterned. Recently I got this COS cobalt blue scarf similar to this and I'm in love with it. I like to pair it with Essie The More The Merrier or with Chanel Holiday because I find that just compliments the color very well.

For a patterned scarf like what I have here from Zara, I like to pair it with Revlon Colorstay nail polish in Bold Sangria or with Estee Lauder Pure Color in Beautiful Liar. I just find that these are fool proof colors when it comes to this.
