Am:Pm - Golden Days

If you are someone who struggles for an outfit perfect for both day and night, or that you are not sure how to mix and match with one signature item, the new Am:Pm series will be perfect for you.  Or to be more accurately, this is something I have been looking for.  I live far away from the city centre.  And that's why I always need an outfit I can wear for daytime office work and afterwork party life.

Without further ado, let's get started with Metallic Pleated Skirt!

Metallic items have been on the trend for a while now.  But the thing about metallic items is that you don't need many of them, or you don't wanna get many of them and end up chucking them away because they are out of trend the next season.  So here's the day and night styling of the same pleated skirt!

Haircare Tutorial

My hair is long, super long (I literally just measured it and it’s 77cm (approx. 30 inches)).  I am 160cm so my hair is like half of me.  And like every other girl, I dyed it, I bleached it, curled it, permed it, straightened it – every possible damage, you name it.  I had even got wax strips on my hair while me and my classmates were messing up some truth or dare during class, which ended up cutting a damn bunch of hair.  Yet, I am lucky enough to inherit strong hair from my mum.  But somehow the genes are not enough to sustain so much damage that it started to get serious dead ends and lose the natural shine.

So if you wonder how I regain the shine and health of my hair, that's the haircare routine I do, daily.  Yes, daily.  Hair is not something you can change in a click, it requires time and accumulation of efforts, so much efforts.

Where it all Begins

Where it all Begins

Cracks did not just appear from nowhere, there are always two sides to it.  

Guys resist temptations while girls embrace loneliness, they say.
But before that, ask yourself,
whether you have kept yourself lovable and attractive enough that no one can replace you.

 Or whether you have spent enough time with her, loved her and cared for her.

Ask yourself.
Hold on and never run away.  Go back to where it all begins.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

It’s been a while I talked about my thoughts.  There are a few reasons for that.  The biggest reason among all is that I haven’t let myself think.  I am someone who needs private time, a lot of private time - a lot of private time to think, reflect and move on.  One of my favourite quotes, which I think apply to everyone is that,

Along the things and events you experience every day you accumulate memories, some good and some bad.  Slowly your bag of memories gets heavier and heavier every day, until one day it starts to drag you and make it difficult to move forward.  By this time, you should clear up your bag.  Leave things behind, especially things you have been blindly insisting, and move on.  Only after you start to let go will you be able to move far and move quick.

Wear Your PJ Pants Out

There are always days you can’t be bother to think what to wear, or you’ve been thinking the night before but still have no idea what to wear.  I guess that’s how the pyjamas pants trend comes by.  So that’s the deal - simply pair your pyjama pants with some formal or daily items and you are good to go.  But of course, that’s only when you actually wear pyjama pants.
Before I start rambling how rush I usually am, here’s my 3 outfits I’d rush out of my door with the same pyjama pants!

Smart Casual, Be Smart and Casual

Since I was talking about balances just now, here’s the fashion balance - balance between smart and casual.  Disclaimer: this isn’t the usual “smart casual” you work place looks for, but some kind of “smart and casual”.  Not too “smart”, but with a touch of “casual” in it.

(Totally inspired by my friend, who was trying to handle “smart casual” with a smart shirt and casual slippers.)

Following from the Part I of #FollowDearPostmanToTaipei, here’s the Part II of it!  Don’t think I said it last time, but we actually went there for 6 days.  That’s how chill we want our trip to be.  (Oh, by the way, fun fact, my mum asked me how “chill” is spelt and why everyone is using that word LOL.)  Especially for places like Taipei - with nothing really exciting going on - we thought we might as well just chill and enjoy.

#FollowDearPostmanToTaipei: 1

So as I said in my previous blog post, I let myself take a lil social media detox during my trip at Taipei 2 weeks ago.  No Instagram, no Facebook, no Snapchats but me and food in this peaceful island.  And like, it was just so perfect.  6days might not be a long break, but definitely good enough.  Without further ado, let’s get into it.  Our 3rd #FollowDearPostmanTo, to Taipei Part 1!

The Valentine's Day Outfit Formula

The Valentine's Day Outfit Formula

Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice - That’s literally my valentines formula.  Sugar for a bit of sweetness, Spice for a bit of sexiness and of course everything nice and romantic.  I would have to say this post can only be a reference since at the end of the day I can’t represent your best style or what your other half would prefer.  Wear what fits you the best and let Cupid do the rest.

However, I did do some research with my guy friends around as to what they will prefer.  And the answers to this are (mainly): Velvet, Dress, Slim-fit, Cropped.  Something sweet with a slight touch of sexiness.
