[LOTD] – Easy Breezy Weekender

Standard

I always like the Covergirl slogan “Easy breezy, Covergirl” so that was what I was trying to achieve – an outfit that embodies a easy breezy laidback charm.

P1140884

The look was crafted in mind for a weekend date with the girls or even a casual date with a special someone.

P1140886

Outfit details:

White tank top, New Look

Grey culottes, Platinum Mall Bangkok

Denim wrap blouse, Primark UK (at 3 pounds, it’s an absolute steal. Best part, I got it more than a year ago)

White canvas purse, Fendi

Silver ballerina flats, Tods

P1140893

The outfit was oh-so-comfy, a definite sense of relief from my typical work ensemble of shift dresses and heels.

P1140897

Freedom is when I don’t need to break my ankles from prolonged wearing of heels!

P1140900

Adorable floral buttons add a sweet, Cath Kidson-ish feel to the light washed denim material. Too pretty to be true.

Korea Trip Stash!

Standard

An Yeong Haseyo!

Korea is really the land of skincare and my skincare heaven! there’s so many variety and product range is soooo extensive that by day 1 shopping i feel that all these products are just gimmicks and walking down myeong-dong is like a competition to see which skincare brand has the best marketing to draw in customers… but still i am a good tourist and i bought loads!

and all those who serve me in shops are PRC.. by default i am also a PRC to the sales assistants so i always have to correct them.

want to see what i bought from my korea winter trip? these includes things for my friends so not all is mine k

i have took photos according to brands and here’s where 90% of my shopping goes to

LANEIGE

i also bought a zara bottom and a fluffy sweater and food stuff for colleauges and family.

i didnt bring my credit card so no aftershock next month. think i spend SGD1,000 ++?

[Review] Vichy Bi-white Med Deep Corrective Whitening Lotion

Standard

IMG_1548

got this in one of the Bellabox and was happy cos i love to try whitening products and toner is one of the fastest running out items in my beauty stash.

 

Vichy’s Bi-WHITE MED Deep Corrective Whitening Lotion was specifically tested on sensitive Asian skin, which means that it’s formulated for you. Including the amazing Vichy spring water as a base ingredient, this moisturizing lotion is fast penetrating without ever leaving a sticky after-effect. Amazingly, it targets pigmentation at its source by using DRM-WHITE technology, which controls the biological signal that creates excess melanin and darkness in skin tone deep at its root. The result: clean, bright, light skin is revealed with remarkable softness. Hypoallergenic and paraben-free.

PARABEN FREE 🙂

it as a clinical medical smell. not sure if you understand like antiseptic? but its very slight so im fine, i would prefer products with 0 frangrance.

IMG_1550
colourless thin liquid and i usually pour it on a cotton pad first then wipe on my face

it doesnt contain alcohol so it doesnt have the cooling feeling on my skin.
i noticed in Singapore humid weather it does take longer to absorb and i have to pat into the skin. even then my skin is still super moist.

IMG_1554
i feel its pretty good and i use it about 1 a day and i feel my skin is refreshed and fairness maintained.
it doesnt sting my pimples and cuts which is awesome too.
skin does feel bright and light 🙂

[LOTD] – Floral Peplum

Standard

It was a bright and sunny day, and what better reason to dress up for such glorious weather?

As you can probably tell by now, I love colours and prints. I am hardly shy of wearing both of them at the same time, and to add a cherry to the metaphoric icing, this lovely dress came in my favourite peplum style.

Here’s the break down of my outfit:

P1140844

Paintbrush-inspired floral peplum dress, H&M (yes, second H&M dress in a row)

Black pumps with stacked heels, Salvatore Ferragamo

Gold patent clutch, YSL

Necklace, Dior

Watch, Tissot

P1140850

It’s pretty safe to say that I adore this outfit. It was fitting for a lunch with girl pals and possibly a night out in town as well. It was versatile, and still pretty me. My broad smile probably says it all.

P1140860

P1140840

Yes, almost all that I was wearing were purchased during my Europe trip and I can truly feel the hole in my pocket. 😦
