It seems like I have taken a mighty long hiatus! I wish I had some proper excuse – like school, or a wasting sickness – but in truth I have just been gone skiing. After a week in Val Thorens and another in Val d’Isere, I am rounding this season off with a third and final (!!!) week in Flaine. There have been talks about a short trip up to Ben Nevis in Scotland, but I’d have to assemble all my gear before then for that to happen. I’m pretty fed up with rentals. Right now the only things I am short of are skis and bindings, but (unfortunately) I have also picked up snowboarding. I would have to decide between purchasing skis or bindings for my shiny new snowboard if I want my bank account to maintain a semblance of respectability (actually, it’s already too late for that).
Rest of the weekends have been interspersed with visits from various people and also a trip to Sweden. We (although by we, I mean my long-suffering partner since I can’t drive) drove down to an Acne outlet where I managed to find some cute stuff! I’m pretty sick of winter already, although this Zara jacket makes up for it somewhat. And my Skovgaard pumps actually managed to worm its way out of literal storage, so hurray for warmer weather!
Got a marble obsession like I do? Check out these marble-printed items that are not as cold and hard as they look.
- Safe House White Marble Duvet : At US$350 a pop, this bedsheet+duvet set better feel like I’m lying down on the manly chest of Michelangelo’s David when I head to bed at night.
- Designlykke’s DIY Marble-Print MacBook Air: When it comes to fuelling the obsession with marble print, Henriette knows what to do with marble-print stickers. Looks like I’ll be hunting for some over the weekend!
- Charles & Keith Marble Print Loafers (S$49.90): Bloggers in Singapore have been spotted with the hottest shoes from Charles & Keith. This marble-print loafers would go swimmingly with my cracked-print top from Cameo the Label.
- Case Scenerio ELEMENTS iPhone cover in White Marble (€25.08) : While the EXOvault iPhone case is still my go-to camera case, I guess I can make the exception for the marble-print iPhone cover from Case Scenerio.
I might try my hand at the DIY once I get my hands on some marble-print wall stickers. Stay tuned for it.
Admittedly, I’ve been really obsessed with cracked print and marble print ever since Alexander Wang dished out his first collection for Balenciaga and who can resist this gorgeous print from Australian brand, Cameo the Label? I would have bought every single cracked print item in this collection if I could afford it but since I can’t, I had to pick just one and this top would go with the rest of my wardrobe pretty well.
As you might have noticed, I’ve really been trying to get back into the momentum of blogging regularly. It’s been a hectic the few months; priorities and commitments aside, blogging is still something that I really enjoy and hope that everyone visiting our humble little blog enjoyed our posts too.
Keep those comments coming cause we missed chatting with you too.
I’ve always been a fan of neoprene and the boyfriend was surprised when I mentioned that I just bought my first neoprene item from ARC the label. Speaking of neoprene, they had that in the bag strap of my new Aide de Camp Madison bag, I’ll be doing a proper review of this handy camera bag soon!
Tried to spend a little more time on my makeup today and attempted a gradient eye makeup with NARS Khao San Road eyeliner, Outremer eyeshadow and Pandora eyeshadow duo. Is anyone actually interested in a tutorial for this?
My nails are also a lot fancier than usual although I couldn’t find time to go to a manicurist before Chinese New Year. The designs might look complicated but they are actually transparent nail wraps from NCLA. I’ve tried plenty of nail wraps before and they usually end up with bubbles on the side but the NCLA is just the right thickness and the foil stretches and adheres to different nail shapes. The transparent nail wraps are available on Zalora and I would love to get my hands on the more designs.
This is me trying to catch up on blogging and yes, this is my current hair colour. In fact, this was taken right after Venetia and I walked out of Hairloom. Peter gave me a fresh new colour and covered up purple which was fading into an embarrassing copper-tone mess. I wish you could see how the resulting blue blends into the turquoise, sea green and yellow.
This post is also an experiment as the photos are all taken with the iPhone 5S. The camera is so amazing compared to my old iPhone 4S and I’m honestly wondering if it will replace my DLSR altogether. The post-processing was also completely done on the phone (except for the url at the bottom right, still haven’t figured out a way to do it properly on the phone) and I am really loving the filters from VSCO cam.
