They say ‘Never judge a book from its cover!’ But these pink books aren’t placed on top of my most-loved shelf just because they have contents I’m fascinated about. I adore their covers and how they could match perfectly with the scarves/handkerchiefs I owned. Unbiased book reviews could be easily found under one minute on Google, these are my opinion-based reviews with a little bit of mix and match. And no, you do not need to put in that much effort to match your whole look daily with a book you might spend up to a week reading. (However, that could be quite a challenge though.)
IT by Alexa Chung
A type of book for people who wish Alexa Chung has a blog, I am one of those fangirls; her style, her photographs, her illustrations in the book kind of say already how much of a style icon she is. Reading her book is like reading one of those style Magazine I guess, it doesn’t bore you and it could be easily understood. A good book for an hour trip somewhere or a day spent in a coffee shop you love. Yes you can definitely finished this book in less than a day!
It’s a short french love story you can take along with you to the beach on the weekends and finished it by the sea. No, it’s not a happy book, in fact it’s very sad and much more pessimistic than I thought it would be, but the language used are so beautiful it deserves a glass of cosmopolitan to go along with as you lay down and read. That’s how I read this book.

Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann
I bought this book from a second-hand book store around two years ago, I never heard of it before until its pink cover grabs my attention that day. The author described the sleeping/diet pills as ‘the dolls’ and how they could turn the girls’ life into tragedy within twenty years. The book started from the 40s towards the 60s period). The first time I read this book, I couldn’t put it down at all, it’s not very common for me to finished a 400 pages book in just a few days unless they’re very interesting. However I didn’t enjoy the film so much, maybe because the book have a lot more details and a slightly different plot compared to the film, you could feel the darkness coming from each character’s feelings in the book. I got the pastel pop floral fabric from somewhere around Shinjuku, on my visit to Tokyo last year.
Book clutches are no longer necessary the next vacay you take ♡♡♡♡♡♡
Getting all dressed up on Fridays even if you aren’t going anywhere after work is a happy way of celebrating the weekends. This Friday I’m going for the 70s look with a glimpse of the 50s and kisses of florals as I spin myself around!
(Cat-eye sunglasses from Onion BKK, spaghetti top from New Look, floral long skirt from Love 70s Chiangmai, beige leather clutch from Viera.)
When you run out of ideas on things to wear, floral patterns can be another choice to choose from your wardrobe, simply because they’re one of the classiest pattern any woman with any look can pull out during the day they’re stuck on their morning styling routine. Cat-eye Sunglasses are also my favorite kind, the slightly lifted ends are as sexy as the sharp cat eyeliners, they kind of bring out the mysterious, feminine side in you. Lipstick used in this look is MAC Paramount (satin).
Nothing is better than spending your Sunday afternoon getting your nails done, professionally with someone who deserves to touch them because makeups will be washed away after that party you attended but pretty nails remains for days and days. Some patterns can even survive for weeks but that’s rarely, unless you’ve found the right nail salon that can surprise you with creative nail designs. Which I’ve found one, I have my very own favorite salon I got my cosmic nails done for Cheeze #132 article (The Nail Spell no.1).
