Back to Black Outfit Lookbook

Someone dear to me had created this awesome video, which highlights urban street style - sick combos of studs, stripes, and prints. It is her first experience in cinematography (and she's only 15!!) and let me tell you, it is just a bright beginning for her. Keep your eyes peeled for her!

What to Wear? Spring Whites

Although wearing crisp white can be tricky (i.e spillage, stains, etc), nothing is more chic than sporting alabaster shades this spring. Zara offers variety of choices - monochromatic head to toe whites or with flower patterns and other spring colors. Which one is your favorite?

Remember my deep obsession for cupcakes? Well, now there is the cookie version!

Enjoy! But warning, this post might cause monstrous appetite for saccharin.


City Neighborhood Posters

Recently, I visited a close friend in Toronto for her birthday. Feeling uninspired, I thought my options for gifts were limited but I came across this poster and it was perfect for her . Secretly, I want one for myself too.
How about you, any creative gift ideas? Would you hang this up on your wall?


please note that the item was purchased with my own money and this post is not sponsored by the company.

So here is some outfit inspiration for a Moroccan sojourn.

Do or Don't: Bathroom Workspaces

Having a neat, clean and un-cluttered office space is key to productivity. The trend, however, is combining two concepts of home office+bathroom. Tough to say if it is a genius way of space-saving or just purely impractical. Would you turn your bathroom into a workspace?

My first cupcake experience was later in my teenage years. Growing up in the southeast hemisphere allowed me to experience different kinds of indulgences and so cupcakes were so foreign to me. Now I am northbound, almost every single bakery around my neighborhood offer an ubiquitous red velvet/chocolate/vanilla variety of this treat. It became excessive.

However, upon finding this, my curiosity for cupcakes reignited. Okay, gotta go! Severe sugar craving strikes again.

Splurge or Save? Booties with Buckles

As a fan of buckled booties in general, it is hard to decide if one should splurge or save. Especially, looking at the current trends, buckles are here to stay.
Both options are incredibly chic, with prominent buckle fixtures that is perfect for both city or desert (aka festival) wear.

So what do you think? Splurge or save?

Dream Destination: Morocco

Morocco has been on top of my traveling bucket list. The souk, the food, the tea, the architecture, the mystery... Everything just seems so enticing.
How about you? What is the destination of your dreams?

Coachella Chic

Marking the beginning of festival seasons, Coachella Music Festival jump starts tribal prints, geometric shapes, straw bags, flower head pieces and fringe accoutrements. I foresee summer uniforms!
