Not Colonel Mustard - It's LADY Mustard.

Mustard is like fuchsia for me; I always want more of it in my closet, but, I don't know, as much as I like mustard—seriously into it—not many mustard things please me. It's an almost annoyingly difficult colour to work with, but I can't decide if it's the colour mustard that's…

Statement, Chunky & Ripped

I'm not going to pretend like I'm the first person to mix something grungy and edgy like the ripped jeans with something a little more feminine and fancy like this statement necklace together, and talk about "juxtaposition" or whatever. But I think there's a reason why we kee…

Favourite Drugstore Liquid Foundations

I seriously wish I could live on just drugstore foundations. FYI we don't actually call them "drugstore" foundations here in Malaysia, because we call those stores "pharmacy" here, but since nobody ever calls them "pharmacy foundations"...

The only reason I can…

How I Store My Shoes In A Practical (and The Least Glamorous) Way

I had a surge in the number of shoes I own since my first trip to Tokyo. Obviously the reason for it is seeing these kickass cool kids of Tokyo in their kicks, getting inspired by them all and going "I want that" and "But I might need those too" and buying all of them without c…

Birthday Girl

I had a very, very special birthday on Wednesday the 13th. Thank you so so SO much to those who wished me, either by messaging me personally, through Facebook or by commenting underneath the video of me extremely enjoying my best friends' rendition of Happy Birthday on my Instagram.

Let The Cat Out Of The Bag

I can't be fancying up every weekend you know; there are days when I'm like "Ah screw it I'll wear whatever rags I want!" Well, only to change my mind two seconds later, of course—I still want to look cute and all. So on this kind of days I guess I just need to strike the rig…

Princess Floral Lips

I first wore this dress on one of my best friends' wedding day, and someone commented on how "princess-y" it is (still not sure if it was a compliment or an insult, but I'm viewing life positively, always). That isn't actually a bad fitting, because I do feel a little like a …

Contributor to Yahoo! Style UK

One of the most exciting things about 2015 for me was definitely being asked to contribute to Yahoo! Style UK; I remember reading getting an email from them and reading it in disbelief like it was just yesterday, even though "yesterday" was two and a half months ago.
It's definitely …

Melaka (& Its Pink Wall)

A couple of weeks ago I went to Melaka for an overnight trip. It was meant to be a quick one with Shah so I didn't put that much thought into packing (zero makeup, too), and I even left my camera at home. But we couldn't resist! Melaka, or Malacca City, has always been a favourite city of …

Teal Steal (Oh, and Happy New Year!)

Happy 2016, everybody! Can you believe that it's already the third day of the new year? Time sure flies! I had an utterly amazing 2015, by the way, with all my Japan trips as the obvious highlights!

I hope you all had a fun and safe time ringing in the new year. Shah and I did nothing but loun…
