  1. Fashion For Kids

    May 23, 2016 by barbara

    I was reading this article from Who What Wear about how soon would you dress your child in designer clothes.  I have been seeing photos online of children dressing up like the adults and with coiffed hair.  There are also a number of instagram stars with thousands of followers. Unless you are born with a silver spoon, I don’t think one can afford designer clothing all the time especially children who grow out of their clothes very quickly.  As for me, I like to buy brands like Zara, H&M and Mango for my kid.  I love their style and they are easy on the pockets too. What about you? Do you dress your kids in designer clothes?

  2. Denim on Denim Trend

    May 16, 2016 by barbara

    I used to find wearing denim with denim pretty boring and would not wear anything in denim from head to toe.  A denim dress or jumpsuit is different though.  What I mean is wearing a denim top with a denim pants or skirt or shorts.  I think pairing a lighter denim top with a darker denim pants is not too bad.  Denim on denim trend is back this season.  What do you think of the double denim trend?  Can you pull it off?

  4. Kate Middleton’s Fashion

    April 26, 2016 by barbara

    Recently the Duchess of Cambridge paid a visit to India with the Duke of Cambridge Prince William. The fashion world went into a frenzy after photos of the duchess emerged.   I must say that she has such a great fashion style. Besides clothes by Anna Sui, Alexander McQueen and Jenny Packham, the Duchess wore clothes by famous Indian designer as well.    I love her effortlessly chic style.  I was so impressed with her when she demonstrated her ukulele skill during a hospice visit last year that I went to check out the guitar center ukelele tuner.   She is inspirational.

    April 20, 2016 by barbara

    One of the latest trends this year that I simply adore.  The puffed up designs on the sleeves add a sophisticated but fun edge to things.  We will be seeing lots of ruffles, puffy sleeves and high-collar necklines this season.   Here are some of my favourite looks.   Have you got them in your wardrobe?

    April 8, 2016 by barbara

    Have you been seeing women walking around in their pjs lately?  If you are like me and were wondering what’s going on,  well wonder no more.  The PJs look is in right now.  Not only would you look chic in the bedroom, you can even do so when you are out.  I still cannot embrace this style yet.  What about you?

  7. Eyeliner Hack For Those With Single Eyelids

    April 3, 2016 by barbara

    If you struggle to put on your eyeliner because you have single eyelids or mono eyelids, or your eyelids hide your eyeliner (story of my life), well, here is a hack that would help you to draw really fast.   Use gel or liquid eyeliner to draw a thick arch so that when you open your eyes, you will have perfect lines.   I have tried it and it works! Yay.

    I like to use Missha eyeliner from Korea.  It is precised for drawing thick and thin lines and strong against water, seat and sebum.

  8. How To Stay Safe When You Run

    March 29, 2016 by barbara

    I run a couple of times a week and on weekdays, I use the treadmill due to time constraint.  I love running outdoors and I usually go do it once a week.   However, at times, I feel unsafe running by myself.  Well, if you are like me, you can now feel confident during your run with this Booby Trap Bra.  It is a sports bra with special pocket to hold either a small knife or pepper spray.   This soft sports bra offers great support and is available at BoobyTrapBras.com.

    H&M just launched their first range of bridal designs in its 2016 Conscious Exclusive Collection.  This favourite high-street brand’s bridal designs are very affordable as the gowns are priced from £149.99 to £399.  These pretty gowns will be available from April 7.   The bridal gowns are made with over 50% sustainable materials and were modelled by Julia Restoin Roitfeld, the daughter of ex-French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld.  I bet the gowns will be sold out before you can finish saying Hennes & Mauritz.
