Seeing YELLOW!

I like Jessica Alba's latest ensemble.
I like the color-blocking she has going on...
And I now have reference to pair my own so-damn-bright-red-pants with something brighter!
But nothing got my attention more than that little yellow bag.
For I swear...I have NO yellow bag..
So I am entitled to go buy one.
And no this is not an haphazard decision, I've done my research!
No..seriously...I have been promoting yellow.
I have been crushing on yellow dresses previously this month...
But a yellow bag is much more easier and can be worn from Spring to Summer regardless of the temperature.
Thus a yellow bag results in a better investment.
And even fall collections have featured bright yellow, so more bang for your buck!


I still haven't decided so below all are the options I am considering.
I think this is by far the cheapest option.
This beauty is from H&M and costs 30 euros.
I think I could shove my whole life (e.g. books, articles, lunch, shoes, wallet, gloss, lotion) in there!
So that's a plus.

My second favorite option is from Aldo.
It costs 55 dollars, and it has those fab nautical stripes.
Its rather casual, so I'm not sure I could use it everyday.
Office appropriate? Don't think so.
Still it looks really nice. 
Another cute lady like purse is this one from
It's 50 euros, but so chic, however the color is more mustard than yellow,
So it's ranked in third place.
My last option is from the giant
It's in sale, so my heart is racing!
However it seem kinda small so this baby is ranked at fourth place, retailing for 33.62 euros.
I know I've carefully weighted my options here, 
But as soon as I hit the shops I might go totally overboard and forget all about my analysis.
Point in discussion here, I want AND shall get me my freaking YELLOW bag. Period!

And in case I actually win the lottery and become a trillionaire  I shall buy myself 
a nice Louis Vuitton in this dazzling Citron (aka Yellow) color.

Pull and Bear

I've been gone for long huh?
I'm sorry....I am too caught up in exams and all that I need to do for school...
But no I have not stopped obsessing about all the nice stuff money can buy!
I haven't gone shopping a great while..but I am not blind and unaware...
I've got tons of stuff I want...
Besides...I found this new shop....Pull and Bear...
Awesome stuff they got there...This is my current wishlist...
All from Pull and Bear!

This mint green lace dress is soooo adorable and cute! 
It's perfect for on a I shall totally want it...
Hopefully BF likes it and won't say I look like a granny :P

I like this sweater! It has such a funky twist with those embellished shoulders!
Besides I've got no black sweaters...
So basics are a must have!

And of course, we need an orange-ish coral tangerine..whatever the color is called blazer.
And yes, they have it!
Still debating internally if I want a poppy pink one...

And for those totally obsessed with bags like myself...I spotted this beauty.
She is totally waiting on me..
And I am totally dreaming of her...

For those that can't make it to the shops like me...please suit yourself online: Pull and Bear!

Today was a really nice day!
It was 'warm' :P t least for winter weather....and best of ALL..
It was quite sunny!
The sun make me makes me sing, smile and skip and hop...
I am 100% sure I was not made for the cold weathers..
I know I've said I want a bright pink blazer..but let's rephrase.
I.WANT.AN.ORANGE.BLAZER. Like now! To wear in this sunny weather.
To remind me of the sun when its all cold and rainy.
Besides orange perfectly complements those with an olive undertone and those of us that are brunettes.
So don't be shy.
Grab a nice tone of orange to make your day POP!

Truth or Dare

So I've been nosing around and taking a look at the beauty aesthetic of some designers.
I've noticed some crazy eye make up and I've seen new and interesting stuff.
My favorite make up look is the peacock.
The peacock includes, emerald green, purple, gold and black.
It is DRAMATIC for sure!
I would totally do this for a night out with the girls, 'cause I'm not so sure BF would appreciate this :P
I really like how this combination brings out the best for dark eyed people, like myself.
So I surely will try this one,
and hopefully our friend Yuhklop will do a tutorial.
Cross your fingerssssss...!!!!

So far that I can remember, me and my friends always use black eyeliner.
We used to come to school and do our make up, which always meant black eye liner.
So this new take on the basic black eyeliner sure appeals to me.
I am not so sure I can pull it off, but I like the Cleopatra look these double black lines give you.

The following look is rather tricky. It is mint green eyeshadow on a plain face.
I will try this using a warmer shade or more blueish shade.
So this one is the most daring one for me, decide for yourself if you shall try it or not :P

I've been doing this lip stain thing since last year so I so love the rosy stained lips.
This is a total DO!
Just look for the right shade for your skin.
Fair skins, look for a rosy color like the one below, 
For those with an olive complexion  look for a more peachy pink.
And dark girls look for a deeper, near purple but still pink, pink.

And finally this is my favorite look.
This is what I call, my school look. Or my no-time look.
A bare, fresh face. Barely there make up!
Just grab a moisturizer and a lip balm. 
Try using a luminous moisturizer like L'oreal Youth Code.
After these two steps, add a little brow gel in your natural brow color and we are good to go!

So what do you think of these make up looks?
Are you digging them like I am?

I want scarves?

Seriously, I am not a scarves-person.
I think they choke me. They remind me of the cold, which I hate!
Scarves even make me look fat! 
I can't stand them...or the fact that I need to use them.
That is till today.
My cousin and I are both obsessed with this leotard printed scarf I bought last year, which for the record still smells like her, so now it's like she's so close I can smell her...:P
And since I know she sooo loves that scarf, I was online looking at scarves...
But really even I am now in love with these River Island prints!
Scroll real fast.
The one below can be worn with your winter favorites.
Black and gray and all the blue stuff people seem to own for winter.
But the pinks hints that you are eagerly waiting for Spring!

The following three scarves fit the mint/pastel trend I've described before. 
If you are not a fan of following trends, this is a simple and less pricey way to show you can be playful.
I personally like the second one, it has the more mint green fabric, 
plus the print has something oriental to it,
which would perfectly complement my split-eyes and fits perfectly with my favorite lip shade: red. 

As I predict, yellow is gonna be all that this summer, or at least I am so loving it!
So why not add a yellow scarf? 
I soooooo like this one. This is my second favourite choice after the green/oriental scarf.
This scarf is a pick-me-upper.
I your feeling blah, wear it. If your outfit feels blah, WEAR IT!
And if you are not sure which one to buy, take this one. It can be worn for years to come.

All these scarves, including other prints can be found at River Island.
I am total puzzled but delighted..
For now, I shall enjoy that one scarf me and my cousin ADORE...
Which 1. sooo reminds me of her and, 
2. reminds me that I'll say you soon!

5 key pieces for Spring

I know promised this post via twitter 2 days ago, but I got caught up with schoolwork.
I am starting to feel that I'm working for Miranda (The Devil wears Prada), only I never get to see her...
So I have no idea what she wears in my situation...:P
Anyway let us strategize how to spend our hard-earned money!

Like most of us working our way to the corporate world,
our budgets are not as dainty as we would like it to be.
So it makes no sense to even suggest you to go buy a total new wardrobe,
and I know the probability that you will mix and match is substantial.
Believe me I myself like to find key pieces that vamps up my closet so I don't end up spending too much :P
Well let's start the counting. These are the items you will need to update your closet!

A bright yellow dress

The color of this dress will revive you dusty, dark and beige winter closet in no time.

This dress, depending on the style you buy, can be worn on different occasions.
You can style it for a night out, for a casual Saturday or even a date.
I've spotted this amazingly cute yellow dress on the runway last September.
Designer Oscar de la Renta made this wonderful item.
Of course if we cannot afford such astonishing prices, 
we shall look meticulously for a look-a-like that is within our budgets. 
Be smart ladies!
In case you don't like yellow, don't fret. Orange is also huge!
And mr. de la Renta has a fab orange dress of the same collection.
Use it as a general indication..:P

Flowery bottoms
I can bet on my precious hair that you have heard about this trend.
Wherever I look there is someone with a flowery bottom even at campus.
I have seen tons of pictures everywhere of those flower-printed pants!
I am not sure these will be in my best interest, for I am short and curvy,
But I found an alternative way to wear a flowery bottom.
Because yes, I too like to make my day by dressing vibrantly.
At D&G they came up with the flowery a line skirt!
Now that I can wear with confidence!
This look is from the 2012 Fall collection but you can draw inspiration from it starting this Spring.
If you wanna rock the pant either ways,
here is a cheap way to jump onto this trend without much regret.
H&M, 14.95 in euros.

Something peplum
For those of us, who have never ever heard of peplum before (I know I haven't) it is quite a pleasant surprise. The so low priced fashion giant Primark had peplum shirts since last year.
And luckily moi has one already, conveniently in blue which fits the ocean trend of this year!
So my tip is go with your guts, you see something you like it, buy it.
Don't care if no one else is wearing it, yet!
But back to the main story, I spotted a couple of awesome options online.
The lucky ones in the USA can rush to Target and grab this peplum shirt by Jason Wu.
I envy you, because it is not available online..and ticket prices are not cheap.
You see even Jason Wu is digging the yellow thing!

Pastel mints
Okay, you are not the over-the-top here I come girl? 
Well in that case, fashion has not forgotten you,
These spring pastels are everywhere, especially in mint green!
This is the fabulous Chanel's take on the pastel mint trend
And here we have it at Louis Vuitton.
This whole collection is to die for!
I would kill for any one of those pieces! 
This shirt is 19.95 at Only.
No real commitment, just a small price.

Statement collar

Last but not least we got an update on you regular button-downs.
Many designers have added what are called statement collars to make these shirts more interesting.
The one below is from Louis Vuitton Spring 2012. AGAIN. 
You see how fab they are, they have a two-trend-in-one going here!

And in case you want to cheap out more, just button up your shirt and add a statement necklace.
Like in the show of Carven for Spring 2012.

So tell me, which one of these trends are you looking forward to try?
