Wardrobe Essentials- Flats Flats Flats

Anyone who knows me will know I mostly live in flats. Simply because I walk TOO FAST. and after my ankle injury I simply cannot wear heels for a while. Other than boots, most of the shoe collection consists of flats in different forms.. like Tods, Converse (lows and highs)….simple and easy. So when London Fashion Week started, I decided to wear flats all the way. So many beautiful women wearing stack high heels running around fashion week, please allow me to say, they DO. NOT. run around in those. well most of them don’t. but anyway, my pair of suede flats are just perfect. simple and I can keep it casual but not in a sneaker-w...

Wardrobe essential- pull on flat boots

OK – shoes. I have to say, a pair of black suede pull on flat boots are the world’s easiest shoes to wear. it simply goes with everything and anything. Problem is there is rarely a pair of comfortable and reasonably priced simple pull ons that can go with your wardrobe. But lately, I found this pair on one of my favourite online shops ASOS and I’ve been wearing it almost everyday with everything. Just to give you an idea, I like doing it my way- easy and comfortable. so I had been wearing them with my grey high waisted stretchy torn jeans (I ripped the other side of the jeans myself because I like it that way more), also from ...

Spice up the heat!

I’ve heard so much about how beautiful lingerie can make a woman feel sexy and empowered.. I have to say, it does take a while for some women to get to eventually appreciate the power of a set of sexy lingerie. And when a sexy woman designs some already sexy lingerie….? Ooh la la it’s on fire! So when I heard about the super-hot L’Agent by Agent Provocateur (Agent Provocateur’s sister lingerie collection in collaboration with Penelope and Monica Cruz ) campaign film, written and directed by, and starring, Penélope Cruz, with choreography courtesy of The Tracy Anderson Method..I couldn’t help but take a look at the teaser o...

Confession of a Shoe-aholic

  Shoes. where do I even begin. Other than owning way more than enough shoes I should have, I’m constantly on the look out for new shoes, new brands, new designs.. basically in another words “expanding my collection”. Bionda Castana is a brand that you must know if you love shoes as much as I do. I first learned about the brand Bionda Castana during my days in ELLE HK, but it was a very new brand back then and I only had an opportunity to email interview the designers. It wasn’t until earlier this year that I finally met Natalia (one of the designers of the brand).  It is not difficult to understand the designs of the shoes...

Truly Yours

I’ve mentioned in earlier posts, that for my beauty regime (if there is even one) is extremely minimal, so as my daily cleansing regime. I had a bit of struggle with over-the-counter beauty products because my skin is quite sensitive, until SaraJane introduced me to her own brand Tru. I was a bit scared to try out a new brand, but for some reason, SaraJane’s passion triggered my curiosity of whether it truly works as it says. As said on the brand, The Tru Brand is what SaraJane Lynch genuinely believe, and hoping to convince women to believe that it is a brand with products that truly works. I had given my fair time of trial to...
