Red and Beret

29aug_1

When you run out of ideas on what to wear, grab a simple white top and a denim overall skirt from your wardrobe, wear them with bright colored lipstick and your favorite accessories. With denim and white, there are just so many ways to style the look. I wanted my look to be plain simple with just one bold color from the red. The beret gave the look a little identity, to me just that single accessory makes me feel like I’m an artist in Paris for the day.

Monday Pampering

monday-morning1105BLOG
Happy Monday! This must be my first ever beauty post. Apart from lipsticks, I am not that much of a make up addict. But I do love pampering myself (especially on monday mornings!) These are products I LOVE and cannot leave home without!

Chanel Hydra Beauty Nourishing Lip Care: I use this on both days and nights right after the shower. I guess because it exfoliates the dead skin on your lips a little, the only time during daytime I’d prefer to use is after the shower. It’s not a glossy balm so it’s very comfortable to wear. But then again it’s for people who doesn’t have the driest lips, it’s more for those who would like to maintain their healthy lips. Apply them at night, wake up with soft and kissable lips the morning after 💋💋‍‍💋‍

Dior Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm: I have no heart for other daytime balms after I found this baby. This will not only soften your lips magically but it also gives you a light sheer pink color, naturally pink that people probably thought it’s your real lips color (secret told). I apply this throughout the day and on days I am too lazy to wear colored lipstick. I think this can cure chapped lips much better than the Chanel one, it smells great too! The downside is that they have little bit of colors when you apply and is quite glossy so I’d prefer Chanel at night.

I am a big fan of clean, fresh and fruity perfume with a little (very little) bit of sweetness. Before these, Dior Addict Eau Fraiche was my all time favorite signature scent, I finished the third bottle and I still wanted to buy another one! The longevity is poor though, none of my perfumes ever lasted long enough because I can never stand the strong ones. But this scent is just something I love so much without even needing it to last that long (though if it does I would completely ditch the rest of the perfume I have).

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream: This is another cool, fresh with a twist of floral, fruity blackberry and pear kind of perfume. I love how it’s not as sweet as the original Marc Jacobs Daisy but still remain the youth you could feel from wearing this throughout the day. Like a morning freshness, the top note is quite fruity and flowery, then it dries down to a soft floral scent with a hint of lychee added to it.

Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay Cologne: The latest addition to my perfume collection, I know it’s not a perfume but this EDC lasts longer than my other fragrances! It’s very obvious you cannot wear all your favorite perfume at once or it’s going to make your day a big disaster. However, with Jo Malone you can! Well you can choose to wear different colognes combined together to create your own original scent. I think this Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay is unisex, I wear this sometimes before bed as well. It’s fresh and relaxing unlike other perfumes I own. It has this naturally fruity taste of blackberry and grapefruit on the top note and dries down to a clean smell of bay leaf and cedar wood.

My favorite combination is to apply Jo Malone’s Nectarine Blossom & Honey Cream (best skin softener) on first, because Blackberry & Bay isn’t a sweet perfume, when there’s a mixture of Nectarine Blossom & Honey on the skin, it gives an overall scent a little feminine but not overpowering that you’d get a headache. To me I find this brand least artificial compared to other perfumes I owned.

Pastel Boy

When you say boyish look, it doesn’t always have to be dull and monochrome all the time. A little pastel can be fun too! Newsboy caps I wore on my outfit to Chiangmai months ago doesn’t look as boyish as it is now with the fringe I’m having. I guess I’m starting to enjoy my new haircut now! I match the cap with my black Toms shoes again cause the material and the color is pretty much the same. I added the pastel into the look with the tee I chose to wear. Though the pattern seems more like a men’s t-shirt, the screening of one of my favorite characters ‘Barbapapa’ (made it now one of the most-loved items in my wardrobe!) matches my pink Vivienne Westwood watch quite perfectly.

Casual Saturday

Hello! This was my casual look on Saturday. I always love dressing up on the weekends, but what I pick for the look will usually be fun and comfy. I’m in love with my new denim culottes from Zara. I find skinny jeans casual but not relaxing enough for a sunny day off in Bangkok. ☀️ Also, since I got my hair cut short (and finally permed last week), I decided to wear something that shows a little bit of the neckline and shoulders with this new baby pink top from Chalotte Irony💖

The Spring Bling

The Nail Spell #3: The Spring Bling
My article for Cheeze Magazine No. 134
Nails designed by Amy | Layout, written and illustrated by me

This is my first time writing an article in Thai, I realised that I can truly make it more fun with Thai language even though I’m not an experienced Thai writer. Here’s the translation of the article:

If you’re not a big fan of baby pink then The Nail Spell #2 from the last issue probably made you feel sick. I’ve been so into the 90s pastel so much that I’m starting to crave the brights and the bolds! Recently this series called Mad Men have been my weekend addiction, it’s a series that reflects the 60s lifestyle so well. I’m in love with one of the character called Betty Draper, not just from the style she kills but I honestly couldn’t take my eyes of her nails! Her simple but classy oval shaped reddish-magenta nails in almost every episodes of season one that went so well with all the costumes she wore. So I’ve come to realised that, if it was red, I wouldn’t even pay attention to it, though it’s so iconic, we’ve seen red nails so often that we might secretly thought in our head that red nails are the natural color every girls around the world probably have since nail polish was added to their life-vocab back when they were 15.

Plus, floral have been my recent new love from bags, clothes to hair accessories. Floral pattern is one of the all time classic compared to being the last episode of a pastel girl. And because of that I couldn’t resist having them on my nails too! But just normal flower prints you can just simply look up on Pinterest isn’t enough. I went straight to my super favorite nail salon and let Amy design her kind of floral nails for me!

The best part of Amy design is that it’s not even necessary to have flowers on every single nails, she added her style into it as well as adding the Bébé de Juillet kind of glitters, so fun and vivid! Sometimes it’s too boring when you floral everything from head to toe, wouldn’t you like to try styling the pattern with some other prints or mixing it with some bold colors like magenta? Styling your nails is just the same as styling your outfit of the day ladies!
