JAPAN - Travel Journal.
28 May 2015

"Sometimes I look at people and make myself try and feel them as more than just a random person walking by. I imagine how deeply they've fallen in love, or how much heartbreak they've all been through."
- Tokyo, February 2015.

A small piece of what we had on my last trip to Tokyo is these pictures left in my pocket camera. I miss Japan.

 Happy Valentine's Day.

Gone Maybe Gone
01 April 2015

I'm back in the 501CT craze! This year, it turns out to be one of the must-have pair of jeans everyone should have in the closet for a laid-back yet super comfy daily wear. Currently Levi's just launched their perfect tapered fit jeans called 501CT, which we can customize by wearing it downsize for slimmer look, upsize for baggy boyfriend jeans look, or actual size depends on which style we want to achieve.

So here I am wearing my upsized Levi's 501CT with cuffs for a baggy boyfriend jeans look, and I'm finding out ways to wear it with heels or sneakers, jacket or blazer, day or night, casual or going for special events. Here's a few ideas of working out boyfriend jeans on any occasions…

501CT do’s: 
- You can mix it with basically everything. 
Since I picked a bigger size, I avoid bulky tops which could make me look shapeless. 
- It goes with heels and sneakers, wear whatever you want anytime you want it. 
- Some tips on picking shoes if you have a petite body type like me, pointy heels is your hero. 
- Do you know that rolling your pants to ankle gives an illusion of longer legs? :)

heels by Staccato. Heels and rolled-up jeans will do the tricks for your petite figure.

And here's another alternative of a boyfriend jeans paired with sneakers, blazer and a felt hat. If you notice, I can simply switch it to sneakers - jacket - beanie hat combo for more street look and heels - blazer - felt hat for a formal occasion, all with the same top and jeans. :)

You can get this pair of 501CT in the all Levi's stores, go and customise it in your own style! :)

RIOTOUS 2015 // No. 1
14 March 2015

Top & pencil skirt by RIOTOUS


 shoes by Maison Margiela

Hey all! It's been a pretty long time since the last post, I just went back from Japan. So many things to do, and I've been working on my newest collection for my line RIOTOUS and this post is the first sneak peek. So excited! 

The first look is a transparent top with accent in the front, cowl neckline and bow in the back, and a midi pencil satin skirt with a slimming silhouette. Please do follow the instagram @RIOTOUSthelabel for latest update on the collection :)

I have so many things to be updated, especially I have to tell you that I'm in loooove with my new camera, Samsung NX 3000, the one I use for this whole post. It's a light mirrorless camera with a good quality for blogging. Will share you more review on this camera, meanwhile you can see the result on this blog and my instagram!

The last thing and the most dramatic change I got this week is my new haircut :) It's been so long since I had a short haircut, and not only I changed my hairstyle, I also have a new routine. Last week when I cut my hair at the salon, the hairdresser told me that my hair is so dry because of the coloring, bleaching and all the styling I did to my hair. I never really took a good care of my hair (guilty as charge), I barely have time to do hair mask at home, yet I style it with straightening and curling iron almost all the time to 'tame' my frizzy hair. But 'tidy' looking hair is not enough if it's not healthy. It's not going to stay tame for long, and it comes back to being frizzy and dry... The key is to take care of it and keeping it healthy before it's damaged! So the hairdresser asked me to start a new routine as simple as using conditioner every time I wash my hair, for a healthier, shinier, and of course a better-looking hair. So I got myself this Pantene Total Damage Care 10 shampoo & conditioner to moisturize my dry hair, and smooth the outer layer of hair cuticle, giving it a shiny and healthy look, and preventing it from breakage and split ends. And it's true, my hair is so much more manageable now and it looks so much healthier :) Yeay to a fresh start!
