the day before it all disappeared

Cozy sweater, faux leather pants and biker coat combo is probably one of the most loved and worn outfits in the fashion blogosphere since last year. But surely, it works! Both coat and pants are inquiries from the current Zara sale, and both became my wardrobe stables rather quickly after! They simply go with everything, which makes getting dressed in the morning (and in the dark sometimes too!) just that much easier...

P.S. I'm flying home tomorrow to spend the Chinese New Year with the family. So do expect some oriental photos coming your way!

the life saver

I know I know it's that faux fur coat, AGAIN! What can I say?! It's such a life saver in this hideous weather. Since I'm freshly recovered from a 5 day long fever, can you really blame me for holding on to it as my life depends on it?!

Ok, so for those Dutch viewers: indeed I didn't take these photos recently! Wish I could take the advantage of the beautiful snow and shoot some outfit posts in the "winter wonderland". Unfortunately, I've been sick as a dog for a nearly a week and the idea of stepping out into the cold, even for just a minute, frightens me senseless. So bear with me..

Truth be told, I have not been able to wear anything else but this awesome faux fur coat ever since the postman dropped it at my doorsteps. Nor I want to wear anything else but this really. Honestly, it's the warmest and coziest thing I ever own. Not to mention the fact that it's the damn best thing to cuddle up with when napping on the train. A sweet dream guarantied!

So it's been 3 days since we took these photos, and believe it or not the same field has transformed completed to something else. The entire country was hit by snow storm yesterday, which covered up just nearly everything in sight! And all of sudden this post no longer seem to be relevant. Gotta hurry up and do some shoots in the snowy world while it's still here and pretty.

Till next time!

the single tree and the lonely heart


Photographed by Bart Rondeel

Ahhh..the weather was so gorgeous last weekend, we couldn't pass on the chance to soak up some sunshine while it lasted. Although I gotta admit, it was possibly the coldest day this winter so far, but clearly that wasn't enough to stop me from taking a bike ride through the endless field near my town, AND shooting an outfit post for y'all! So stay tuned for that!

Breathtaking view, isn't it?!

oh that leopard

I thought I'd take the animal print obsession to the next level. Been eyeing the Mango one for a while before coming across this River Island number on Asos. They're very similar, but the latter one has a slight darker tone and a more slouchy casual vibe to it which is just right up my alley. I gotta admit, it's not the warmest thing in the world and definitely not substantial enough to walk about town in. But certainly it's nothing a faux fur scarf can't fix! Best buy in 2012 hands down!

I'm pretty sure I was wearing shockingly similar outfits back in my late teenage years. Funny that no matter how much we claim we've grown older, wiser and known better (especially when it comes to the fashion sense), once you let your guard down just that tiny bit, we all fall back to where we started.

the gaga hair!

So, ideally I would be wearing a pair of black stilettos which I did originally put on with this outfit. However, it proved to be the biggest wardrobe malfunction of the year. Those thin, high heels of the stilettos pinched through the fish tail like daggers, which left the dress with so many holes that I wanted to cry! Hence the platforms!

P.S. My ombre hair seems a lot more yellow in these photos after I photoshopped them. Wasn't sure if I liked it at the beginning. Then decided they are well deserved a Gaga moment after all.

Till next time.

current skincare routine!


I've been meaning to write a post about my current skincare routine for ages. However there always seems to be something more important or interesting to attend to at the time. But it's a new year and a new start (how cliche!), I finally decided today is the day that I show you my winter saviors. So without further adieu, Ladies (and gentlemen if you've wandered here by accident) meet my current "best friends".

Evening skincare routine:

Firstly, I'd start off by taking off my eye make up with coconut oil or whatever bi-phase waterproof makeup remover I have available. I found this step is crucial for removing all traces of makeup effectively. Secondly I'd cleanse my whole face thoroughly with massaging a bit of Pai Camellia&Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser on a dry face, than wiping it all off with a hot wet face clothe. Then, I would move on to toning the face. Currently, I'm using a simple rose water which primarily only contains spring water and rose essential oil. I've got this one (above in the pink spray bottle) from a Chinese beauty store (something like Sephora) back home, but there are plenty of similar products available, such as the Eau roma water from Lush. Then I would use my night treament/serum- Estee Lauder advanced night repair which contains amazing anti oxidant properties that my face needs to repair itself with in the night time. Additionally, I'd dot a little bit of Origins super spot remover on necessary areas when I detect certain naughty spots are coming out. After that, time for eye cream. I've been using Origins Firming Eye Cream with Rhodiola since last summer and it's been an absolute dream to apply it everyday. Finally, I'd finish it off with a moisturizer. My current love is Avene skin recovery cream. it's a light weight yet very hydrating cream. I adore the fact that it calms my face without any irritations or greasiness.


Morning skincare routine:

I'd start by cleansing my face again with the Pai gentle hydrating cleanser with a hot wet flannel. And boy, don't I just love how it feels in the cold winter mornings! Then I'd move on to toning with the same rose water. Once it's dried, I would use Origins "Make A Different" plus+ Rejuvenating Treatment. It helps to keep my face plumped and hydrated. It follows by the same eye cream and moisturizer. From time to time, I would replace the Avene recovery cream with Origins Vitazing SPF15 when I don't feel like using any foundation. Because of the tint and glow Vitazing brings to the face, I could get away with not much of additional face makeup, so ho-ray to that on the lazy days!


I'm very happy with my current skincare routine. There are no major complains or problems, just the occasional spots  appears now and then depending on my diet and fact that I'm stressed or not. But the products that I mentioned above seem to keep my face hydrated and clear throughout these cold winter days.

I will write up some individual posts on above mentioned products in the near future since I highly believe they are great enough for some spotlights on their own.

Till next time.

So the weather has been crappy lately in Holland in the past few days, which made the usual outfit shoots just that much harder. We decided to explore the possibilities of taking some photos inside my house for a change. And I guess they didn't turn out too bad?

Oh, and a proper (colored) outfit post of this look will be uploaded shortly. So stay tuned!

Is it Spring yet?

Featured items: biker coat-Zara/ sweater and boots- Tommy Hilfiger/ hat- H&M


I was quite aware the fact this biker coat is rather popular in the blogosphere when I purchased it, however I don't think I fully understand just HOW popular it is! Oh well, it's all for a good reason I guess. Zara has definitely brought its "A" game in the past few collections, which reminds me that gotta take another look in their sale section while it's still going on.

It's a known fact that I don't do color often, especially pink, especially this time of the year. But I do enjoy a pop of color every once a while, to give myself a lift if you know what I mean...And the toughness/darkness of the coat certainly tones down that extreme girlishness this hot pink number brings otherwise.

Till next time,

XOXO
