Things I Like #21


Dior So Real Sunglasses in Bleu Marine and Pink Gold; Aquazzura Christy Lace-Up Flats; Céline Trio Bag; Stuart Weitzman Lowland Boots; Sophie Hulme mini box leather Albion Tote;
This has turned into a designer wish list special. I've been hunting for the Dior sunglasses for ages and still can't get my hands on them. Solve out everywhere, from the UK to across the pond. Sad times but one day I will get my hands on them. who doesn't love rose gold? I personally didn't like the look of the Céline trio bag on bloggers online and in store but when I had saw someone using it in real life, I wanted it. It was the way she had styled it. I didn't think grey and gold would go so well together but Sophie Hulme had nailed it. I do need a boxy, structured bag and this is the one I want.

Lace up flats with gold hardware, do I need to say more? I think I have found the perfect over the knee boots that wouldn't make me look like a stripper. I've recently purchased a pair from Forever 21 but they're starting to rub and blister my feet badly. Wish I didn't purchase them now.

Is there anything on your wish list right now?

London Fashion Week SS16 Favs



I was in London for London Fashion Week but had a little incident which meant I was running around London like a headless chicken. Don't ask! Looking at all of the designers' ready to wear collection, I have noticed there's a lot of more colour than in NYFW. I wasn't feeling most of the collections. I had only liked three designers out of the whole five days and they're featured below.

Let's just say, these three designers are on point.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner



I had finally purchased the Kat Von D Tattoo eyeliner! There wasn't the original left in stock in store but they did have this limited edition and thought why not as I have been wanting to try this for ages. Pen eyeliner are always a hit and miss. This one, is a hit! I've been wearing this ever since I got back to the UK 3 weeks ago.

I am able to create many looks quick with this with ease. The pen tip is a brush rather than felt tip and allows you to draw thin to thick lines and doesn't require much skill to master. Upon the first stroke, it wasn't the blackest as shown in the photo above. A second stroke is needed to make it more pigmented and leaves a matte finish.

Dries quickly and is very long lasting. Smudgeproof, waterproof, and doesn't budge on oily lids. I'm not sure about the 24 hour claim. At the end of the working day, it still looks good. It will only disappear if you rub it vigorously. When I say vigorously, I mean, till your skin gets red. You're not going to do that on your eyes, especially if your eye make up is on fleek. Did I really just say that?

It comes off easily with makeup remover. I wouldn't say it's one of the best eyeliners I have tried but I only use this if I'm in a hurry in the morning (which is most days). I will still repurchase this but only if I was across the pond. The original edition is $19. It is too overpriced here on eBay.

Have you tried any Kat Von D products?

New York Fashion Week SS16 Favs



I've finally caught up with New York fashion week after seeing bits and bobs on social media and around the net. There definitely has been some great pieces and some of my favourite designers didn't live up to my expectations this time round. With every fashion show, there are new brands you discover and begin to love. I had a favourite item from every designer but didn't get that certain feeling with most of the collections as a whole. Not sure how to describe this feeling. I wasn't that impressed with the majority.

I have chosen my 5 favourite designers below where I had fell in love with the whole collection. It's not in any particular order. Just by looking at the selective images I have chosen, you can see what fashion and style taste I have.


Herve Leger by Max Azria

Jonathan Simkhai

Vera Wang


Marchesa has got to be my NYFW SS16 favourites. The intricate detailing, appliqué, choice of fabrics and colours, it's just perfect. Elegance to another level. Fashion week in London has started today. Let's see what it brings!

Are there any designers that caught your eye during NYFW SS16?

Brand Focus: Victoria's Secret



I remember the days when Victoria’s Secret wasn’t available in the UK but then when it was, it was London only. Now, I can easily get my hands on this brand easily. Whenever I see VS anywhere, I instantly think of the models and wish how I can have a body like theirs. I’m just dreaming right now and you must admit, they are hot!

I didn’t really get the hype over the brand until curiosity hit me like the plague. Every time I had visited the store, I would just visit the beauty section and have slowly started to accumulate a collection of their lovely scented body products.

It was only recently I’ve started to explore the lingerie section. Whilst I was in Toronto and shopping at the Eaton Centre, I only had the intention on purchasing the sports range but decided to browse the store top to bottom seeing what else they had to offer. Immediately, I had fallen in love with everything else. Ended up purchase a lovely lingerie set and had to purchase a different set back in the UK as my size was unavailable at that time.

Victoria’s Secret items are cheaper across the pond as I had ended up splurging an extra £20 in the UK. The sets are expensive but I’m weak when it comes to pretty lingerie. This makes me want to get a set each month as a little treat to myself which I might actually do.

Do you like Victoria's Secret?
