ISLANDERS

Wilfred romper  │  Loaffler Randall sandals  │  Louis Vuitton bag  │  thrift store kimono
I grew up going to the beach during the weekends as a kid. Weekend staycations were a norm for my family back then, and father dearest would bring us to the hotels in Batu Ferringhi. Of course the beach were much nicer back then. Fast forward 10 years, I don't go to that part of the city as often anymore. However, when I do I love dropping by at one of the resorts for some outdoor finger food or alcohol. Listening to the sea breeze definitely brings back memories.

AEON NEKO SUNGLASSES

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

Sometimes it is good to support indie startups through innovative campaigns. AEON Attire is one of them. I was approached by this Canadian lifestyle brand a few months ago to help raise funds for their brilliant ideas through Indiegogo and realised them. Fast forwards a few months, they managed to raised a substantial amount of capital to realised this AEON sunnies program, aimed to provide the market cheap but great quality sunglasses. Out of the 12 unique designs, I decided to choose the Neko, which is a pair of retro looking shades. Every time I put it on, I like to imagine that I am sitting on some cafe at the Distillery District, sipping my chai while enjoying the outdoor breeze. Oh how much I miss that part of the world where outdoor sitting is a norm.

BLEACH

Linen oversized shirt from dad's closet│ Nasty Gal shorts │ Giuseppe Zanotti heels │ Ralph Lauren bag
I have been busy with my day job lately and also, playing dress up in reality. It has been fun. What's not to love right, when you are learning and pursuing a career in an industry that isn't in line with your degree. Hallelujah! Of course it is not all fun, fun, fun. There are still deadlines, revenue concerns...the usual stuff.

M Boutique x Indie Candles

Before I do some serious restocking of Diptyque or Voluspa candles, this handmade candle that I purchased from a boutique hotel in Ipoh shall suffice. With a sandalwood lemongrass scent, this is what I call aromatherapy at its best. I feel like having a Thai massage now.

#journeysto100pounds , NOT!

Food; things that merely remind me of Toronto. Don't even get me started on how much I miss it there, food wise especially. I understand the whole reverse culture shock matter, and it takes time to readapt. Hence to ease myself from Hogtown's food culture withdrawal, I came up with a compilation of the food culture here at home sweet home. I am pretty satisfied to be honest despite of what others might think. You can't exactly compare every possible flavours and authenticity out there. Live the moment, enjoy the food, and be happy.

CARTE BLANCHE

Sunday, July 27, 2014

La Notte t-shirt  ⏐ wholesale lace skirt  ⏐ Saint Laurent bag ⏐ Stuart Weitzman heels
I am channeling carte blanche lately, staying true to the campaign I came up for work. There is something about an all white outfit that makes it better than an all black one. The whole get up gives out the aura of a very clean and polished look. Now I finally understand the mother's white attire philosophy. But of course, I still love black. Stark contrast between the two but I absolutely love it!

LOVELY LACE

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Topshop camisole  ⏐ wholesale lace skirt  ⏐ Chloe bag  ⏐  Nose sandals
I have been wanting to find the perfect lace skirt, but to my disappointment, none fits right. Zara ones are gorgeous of course, but they always hang at my bum because sadly I have a flat ass. Frustrated, I flipped open my laptop, googled 'pencil lace skirt' and decided to make this $7.00 purchase from a random website. I gave it some thought for five minutes before submitting the order and said to myself if it fits, great; if it doesn't, at least I won't be losing too much. One week later, I got my parcel. It was my best and one of the cheapest purchase ever. Talk about cheap solutions!
