Favourite Outfits of 2016

I remember last year in December when style bloggers were making "round-ups" of their favourite outfits of 2015 and feeling ridiculously jealous, thinking, "Why didn't I do a round-up myself??", because I thought it was a brilliant idea. It would have given me the chance to…

Cosy Hidden Cowl

I feel so grateful and like my old self, recovering from the nasty cold I had contracted on Saturday (from people who never learned to cover their mouth while coughing, like is it not about to be 2017, people?? If you haven't learned by now when will youuu).

This morning I woke up feeling well…

Split Decision: Denim On Denim

I don't know why so many people hate on denim on denim, but it's totally OK that they do, of course - everyone's entitled to their own opinion. But one thing's fo sho, I'm a total staunch supporter of the "Canadian tuxedo", as some of you might know!

It's not easy…

Peach Mesh Dress (Mesh, Guys. MESH.)

Who knew I'd like anything mesh? I mean, mesh? MESH?? 
It was unthinkable, yet made so much sense as an addition to my wardobe. And - surprise surprise - I want more mesh stuff now.

I had no idea how I would wear it or what I would wear it with but I did know I wanted to wear it somewhere spec…

In Retrospect: NARS Velvet Skin Tint in Med 2 Annapurna & Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet in 40 Beige

Honestly, wearing makeup is fun. I usually hold a private party for one (one = me) while applying it, too, usually blasting my fave songs of the moment and singing along to them - I even snack whilst doing my makeup at times! (Is it just me?)
Finding the right match in foundations, however? A comp…

When Will My New Favourite Come Along? | Floral Ruffle Dress

I find that putting on a flowy, long-sleeved maxi-dress is the easiest way to achieve 'fast modest fashion' - but seriously why is it so darn hard to find a good-looking, affordable, long-sleeved maxi-dress?
Whyyyyyyy?
Perhaps I'm just picky, but I can't seem to find another good o…

Casual LA

Shah and I wanted a chill, relaxing vacation for a few days to celebrate our 7th year anniversary (PS: It's normal to anually be surprised at the number of years you've been married to your spouse, right? Like all couples experience that?) and we got it in Bukit Tinggi, which is located ab…

Sweet Bell Tiers

Truth be told, I wish I could look like this every day.
I'm not talking about getting away with wearing the same exact outfit every single day. No, not that - but even if I were, of course I am a hundred percent aware that I can't, because unlike the Duchess of Cambridge, me recycling outf…

Quick Update: A Little Mustard & Striped Jumpsuiting

Shah and I are so thankful as we recently celebrated our 7-year anniversary! We knew we wanted to go for a little vacation somewhere nearby - with two hours of driving away at most - but for some unexplainable reason we left the planning till the very last day before our anniversary, and had the h…

The "I have nothing to wear!" Edition: Lips & Stripes

I've talked about recycling my clothes for my blog and the problem of dressing up with the existing items (Tip: Own versatile pieces!) but I'm at the point where I'm like "I am SO READY to own new clothes again."
PS: It's a good point of the year to be feeling this way, a…

InstaLiyana: November 2016

If you guys don't know this about me already, my favourite social media platform is Instagram; I don't feel like my day is complete without scrolling through my feed and liking photos! <---does anyone else think this is some sort of unhealthy condition that I have, because I kind of do,…
