Everyday is a fashion show and the world is your runway.

What do you think of Coco Chanel's infamous quote?
I see it this way;  everyday is your opportunity to shine and the way you dressed shows the world a piece of your personality.

TAKING THE CONCRETE OUT OF THE CONCRETE JUNGLE

Three views, one rush hour, one iphone camera. 

1. Trees shadowing the flyover.
2. A Moorish former train station.
3. The Petronas Twin Towers at dusk with the KL Tower at the backdrop.

Rush hour can be brutal in the city that I am currently based in but sometimes, 
its uncommonly spectacular views make the evening commute a little easier.

Notice the caption? Seeing social media nowadays is getting all too mainstream, you see people getting ridiculously obsessed over the number of likes, the number of followers they have; I ask a simple question. Do you get inspired or do you inspire. Similar words but means a world difference. 

 -  Former/latter.  So which are you? -

C/meo Collective top  ⏐   Front Row Shop skirt   ⏐  Jeffrey Campbell heels

Entering into a space of concrete and clean lines, I would like to believe I am wandering around the Rothko room of the Tate Modern admiring the individuality of each iconic paintings. It makes me feel calm and that doesn't happen very often given the fact that I can at most times, be very uptight.

THE OCCASIONAL CARB LUNCH

Rosti, lamb sausages and a carnivorous croissant. Lunch just got a little better despite cafe-esque food getting way too overrated. Locally, cafe-esque food gets a bad rep as they are always act as a complement to the signature caffeine beverages served in house. However, I believe the ones I frequent have a good food-beverage quality ratio. I grow up loving sandwiches. Perhaps, I may be bias.

NAILSINC x VICTORIA BECKHAM

Nails Inc. by Victoria Beckham - Bamboo White

Inspired by the traditionally minimalist Japanese aesthetic, the Nails Inc. collaboration with Victoria Beckham and her Victoria, Victoria Beckham collection reflects one of the chicest beauty launch of the year. Both parties collaborated and created a limited edition duo of nail polishes that complement the designer's Spring/Summer 2015 ready-to-wear collection. 

The one I procured is the Bamboo White variety, which is a bone shade with a slight pink hue. I absolutely love it, despite it being very similar to my other nail polishes. Looking at it on your nails gives you a false sense of calamity due to its undeniably subtle tone as opposed to its very loud counterpart; the judo red. The bottle itself comes in matte black and is created with fine Venetian glass, and is packaged in a stunning white box. It's definitely one fancy little thing. 

I always believe that a woman's attraction to particular shades can speak volumes about their personality. For me, my preferred hues can be awfully boring. I have a subconscious tendency to prefer neutrals and rich wine shades. 90% of my nail polish stash is made up of these hues and I am never able to sway away from it. Maybe once in a few months, there's the occasional glitter involved. Then again, it's a pretty rare occasion.

It's rare to experience pure solidarity in a cafe during the weekends I happened to be in the city centre with the beau one early Sunday morning, and we decided to drop by at this cafe for breakfast. It was the perfect morning; black coffee, steak frites, scramble eggs and the rare morning breeze.

The reason I love heading back to Penang is because it feels like I am going on a short getaway when I am not. I would either spend the day near the beach or the old town. One of the weekends, I managed to drop by Suffolk House for an afternoon tea session with some familiar faces. Other than the surprising entrance fee and mediocre afternoon tea set, it was a relaxing place to spend the afternoon basking in the sun at the colonial facade.

Boutique by Topshop top  ⏐ J.Brand jeans  ⏐  French Sole ballerinas


For the past months, I have been trying to live by the philosophy of essentialism (More about the heart of 'essentialism' in the future). Plain tees and a pair of black jeans, I am ready to step out of the inner quarters of my lair to the outside world. It is a combination that I would wear everyday if the humidity permits. Jeans aren't always the best option out there when the temperature is at a soaring 30 degree celsius.
