Blue Jeans, White Shirt. (And Red Lips)

Sincerely hoping someone got my reference to Lana Del Ray's song in the post title here...
So ahmm I can't seem to stop wearing these jeans, but it's OK, because you guys know how hard it is to find a good pair of slouchy girl's boyfriend jeans, right? Right. It's like, can'…

Sneakers + A Whole Lotta Lips

When this bag first came into the stores, I could not stop looking at it. I have this affinity for anything lips (seen hereherehere, and here) so while the bag is admittedly not particularly the cutest or the prettiest I've ever seen, it IS in the shape of lips. Just on that basis, I feel …

Lipsticks In Acrylic

Alright, OK, I'm late in the acrylic game, I know it. 
I've always stored all of my makeup products in this big structured portable makeup bag, the kind that makeup artists bring on their job. It's very convenient for me because as weird (and odd) as this might sound, I don't own a…

Happy Back To The Future Day!

It's October 21, 2015, guys. The future has FINALLY arrived.

I think 99% of urban kids of my generation must have watched the trilogy of Back To The Future; it's totally iconic and helped shape the future. Which is NOW, obviously. 
(Note: Statistic is not based on any study, but purely int…

Denims

I went to a birthday party at a fire station last weekend, guys. A fire station! It was two hours away from where I lived so I had to wear something comfortable for the day trip there. 
I just realised I had the same denim shirt and jeans on in this post, taken last year, but, well, it IS a super …

2 Transitional Autumn Lipsticks To Try: Revlon Super Lustrous Rum Raisin & Berry Rich

First of all, let me clarify this: Malaysia does not experience autumn. No, I wish. We have two seasons all year round, and they are: (1) hot and humid, and (2) hot and humid.
Wait that's one. Right, sorry, my bad, it's just one then. But we do get a little rain now and then, so thumbs up …

Belted Blazer + Chunky Gladiators

Just another casual weekend strolling in the city, you know it.
OK no just jokes; I took ages to dress up, surprise surprise. But anyway. Seriously, guys, I am obsessed with these shoes. Which is funny because I would have never ever ever considered anything too chunky. Before I went to Tokyo, that…

Beauty & Style Extra Readings (plus a food and a travel one)

Do These 'Magical' Recipes From The Internet Really Work? The two-ingredient banana pancakes resemble Asia's "lempeng pisang" more than anything (we have more than two ingredients though) but hey it's a recipe worth giving a go if someone says it's good enough for dinn…

How To Conceal Stubborn Breakouts

My skin has thankfully been kind enough lately; I no longer experience the nasty breakouts that used to feed drama to my early 20s years. That being said, I still get nasty spots here and there which would spawn those annoying lingering scars. 
The worst part is when a breakout is just starting to…

Little Photo Diary: Near Sumida River, Asakusa, Tokyo

[Say wicker-camera cheese!]

I feel like it's been ages since I came back from Tokyo. I mean, two months can hardly be considered as "ages" but, it just feels that way. What can I say, I'm a professional wanderluster.
It was late in August and such a gorgeous hot day out. It's …

Pajama Vibes

I definitely caught the stripes bug in Tokyo back in May; it was like instead of painting the town red, the super trendy locals of Tokyo had painted the town...stripes? OK that doesn't sound right, but I think you guys know I mean. 
I got so into the whole striped trend that my August-Septembe…

L'oreal True Match Foundation in N7 Nude Amber

Honestly, I think L'oreal True Match foundation is a real drugstore gem. But, let's just say there is a 'but'... (or two or more).
When I purchased L'oreal True Match in N7 Nude Amber about two weeks ago, I genuinely thought I have never, ever tried it out. Sure, I remember hav…
