Evian x Elie Saab A Tribute To Purity

elie saab1Evian x Elie SaabHave always loved Elie Saab’s creations! Love the way how his designs are very timeless, with elegant dresses that celebrate the feminine side of women, using the finest fabrics and intricate embellishment, it is dresses that women would fall in love with over and over again.

evian_es_75cl_HDWhen such a beautiful fashion brand collaborate with an esteemed water brand like Evian, one can imagine something beautiful and pure would be created – the Elie Saab Evian bottle! Derived from naturally filtered water of the glaciers, Evian water emerges as pure as nature would have crafted it. Both brands share a similar philosophy. The delicate Elie Saab lace and the refined silhouette of the Evian bottle combine to create a common vision of purity. Just love the lace motive designs on the bottle. Now, this is bliss in every drop!

Want A Bite of My Lipsticks?

Make-up changes everything – your appearance, your look and your mood for the day. A woman can never have enough of make-up. Having said that, I believe in make-up that looks more natural than anything else, but I also love to put on a bold red lip, once in a while (depending on occasions). There are those times when you buy a certain item and it just sits there for ages, crying out lonely voices to you, but there are times when some items which you will keep going back for, again and again. I guess make-up is supposed to be fun (like style). Better not be too serious about it *_^

Above is my wish list for the time being. Would love to try out some of the items here.

1. Immaculate liquid powder foundation by Hourglass. So much rave about this product. Love the fact that it is free of harmful chemicals and it is anti-aging and has skincare benefits too! Here for more.

2. Signature Real Complete Blending Primer by Missha. Saw some videos on this and it makes the skin glow. Not too sure if it will work on combination skin like mine? Here for more. If you are a big fan of Korean brands, here is a good place to start.

3. F80 Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush by Sigma. I have been wanting to try out a stippling brush. Perhaps this is one I can start off with? Here for more

4. Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder by Chanel. Tried on one of these previously at a counter, the texture and finishing seems quite nice, though I am not a big fan of powder myself. Here for more.

5. Luminizing Face Enhancer by Cle De Peau. Alternatively, I wouldn’t mind trying this luminizing powder. Don’t you just love the bling bling eye-catching casing? Here for more.

6. Marvelous Moxie Lipstick by Bare Minerals. Love the fact that it’s all natural and chemical free. Here for more.

7. Pastille Cremes Lipsticks from Bite. Now this I would LOVE to have one as they look so luxurious in terms of texture and very pigmented as well. The fact that they are made of food grade colouring, really make them much more appealing to me, and sounds yummilicious too! (We ingest so much of lipstick, they should be SAFE, I feel. Here for more.

Well, no matter what look we choose, be it all natural no-make-up make up look, or a glam up red lip look (or anything in between), GIRLS just want to have FUN, don’t you agree? Do let me know if any of you have tried one of these products, and tell me what you all think?

Just have fun with your make-up *_^

A Sunny Orange Afternoon

These are unbelievably juicy and delicious! See, they are so nice that they scream, “Eat Me!” The colour orange is such a sunny pop. It can brighten up any occasion. What’s more, it’s full of healthy-licious fiber.  Though I personally can’t carry this strong colour that well, but I absolutely love that pop of sunny orange in these pictures. Head over heels with the orange heels with all white dressing!

Yay! Have a bright cheery Friday and stay luminous  *_^

[Colour Inspiration] The Colour of Serenity

Today I am feeling GREEN. Any shades of green would send one’s heart flutter to a whole new world of serenity and tranquility. They do eventually calm my nerves of going through a crazy traffic early this rainy morning here. My day wasn’t exactly rosy but now, it is better already! It’s wonderful how colours can be therapeutic after all.

Hope you have your favourite colours in life. Stay luminous and happy always *_^

2. Harper & Harley by Sara Donalson: This Australian blogger has a cool sense and minimalist approach to her sense of fashion and style, which I absolutely love. Her look is pretty much monochromatic – basic black, white and grey. Lovely pictures too. Here for more.

3. Zanita Morgan: A photographer herself, she models and blogs her way to really nice world of writing and picture posting. Love her blonde look, at times, the styling can come across as Marilyn Monroe (if need be). Here for more.

4. Shine By Three: A fashion creative director, law student, stylist and photographer, this young girl has got some really nice pictures of herself. Interesting style, very structured at times, but can be very  feminine on other occasions. She loves strong bold colous, especially orange. Here for more.

5. Kayture by Kristina Bazan: A model and fashion blogger based in Switzerland. she is one hot and lovely young lady.

6. Wendy’s Lookbook by Wendy Nguyen: A psychology graduate and a strong believer in social work, Wendy’s lookbook is a treasure trove of great sense of styling, nice pictures and always a good polished look. She also offers amazing styling tips on her youtube channel. Videos are usually very nicely done. Here for more.

7. Park Sora of Stylenanda: Stylenanda is a huge Korean brand name in the fashion and beauty industry. Co-founder to Stylenanda, Park Sora is a beauty that is so doll-like that one can’t seem to comprehend, her fair white-face-make-up is her signature look, but it works for her. Stylenanda is a clothing, fashion online brand, and they even have their own make-up line called 3 eyes concept. Here for more.

8. Karla’s closet: I love her curve, her fashion style and her styling. She also has her own line of accessories to go with her online fashion boutique. Lovely pictures indeed. Here for more.
