[Fashion] Sparkling Pink X Turquoise Dress

15 Mar

Pink & Turquoise is one of the prettiest combinations.

It is a cheerful duo, vibrant, fresh looking and feminine at the same time. I remembered I was running out of idea of what to wear to a wedding lunch, and when I saw this turquoise dress, I have decided to style it a little bit differently with a statement necklace full of pink and turquoise stones, then top it up with a silk scarf to create a soft romantic look.

There are so many ways that pink and turquoise can be used together, do you like the combination too? Let me know in the comment box below 🙂

The Magnificent Palace of Versailles

14 Oct

Nothing quite compares to the palace of Versailles.

A stunning example of French Baroque architecture, Versailles is one of the most popular, history-steeped attractions in the Paris environs. You sure want to spend a day exploring this golden palace.

It would be safe to say that the word “gold” beautifully and aptly describes the entire palace at Versailles. Gold is a reference to the reign and the majesty of Louis XIV, known as The Sun King, the longest reigning king in the European history.

King Louis XIV had transformed the hunting lodge into something no one would ever surpass: Versailles.

Built to astound, Versailles is impossible to see in a day, with its vast interiors and enormous gardens. Louis conceived the Versailles Palace, located 13 miles southwest of Paris, which had been the political capital of France from 1682 to 1789 and the opulent home of many French kings. Generations of architects, landscape designers, sculptors and decorators worked on the palace, one of the most magnificent estates in the world. It features 700 rooms, 67 staircases, 2,153 windows, 27 acres of roofing, and 55 fountains.Millions of visitors flock yearly to this palace, attracted by its borderline gaudy, over-the-top decorations. It has been an enormously costly place ever since Louis XIV began its construction during the 1700s, setting the international gold standard for “high maintenance.”

I was so amazed by everything in Versailles. While we walked passed the corridor, I couldn’t help but stood in front of this statue for a long time to adore every stroke of the master craftsmen who created it. And there are hundreds of them…

Chapel of Versailles. This is one of the most impressive sights in Versailles. Every day at 10am, the court would attend the King’s Mass. Because the French Monarchy believed that the King was chosen by God, the paintings and sculptures in the chapel represent the idea that the king was God’s lieutenant here on earth.

Hall of Mirrors, in the 17th century mirrors were among the most expensive items to possess. So it seems natural that the principal features of this hall are the seventeen mirror-clad arches that reflect the seventeen arched windows overlooking the gardens. Each arch contains twenty-one mirrors with a total complement of 357. And when coupled with the gilding, the mirrors look MAGNIFICENT!

The Queen’s bed-chamber. Most recent restoration work involved new wall coverings and the application of fresh guild on hundreds of door and window frames, moldings and ornamental carvings. Nineteen royal births took place here. The bed itself is dwarfed by the size of the room and the height of the ceiling.

Galerie des Batailles. A gallery with 118 paintings to glorify French military history from the Battle of Tolbiac to the Battle of Wagram.

Studying history and visiting museums are among the favourite things I like to do. I sort of regretted that I wore high heeled boots to Versailles, it makes me look like a complete idiot walking on pebble stone outdoor and just when I finished touring the palace, I could hardly feel my feet…

Fortunately, the pictures come out to be nice.

Everything about Palace of Versailles is beyond comprehension. The scope of the creativity, the talent of the artisans, the time and the expense involved boggles the mind.

Everybody Wants To Be A Socialite

10 Aug

Socialites.

They are famous, beautiful, extremely wealthy, elegance, successful in career, happily married and almost perfect in every way!

How we wish we can live like a socialite!

In today’s fashion editorial, I am trying to play a role as a socialite. This is also one of my contest entries for the H&M’s Breakthrough Fashion Blogger of the Year. I worked with a new photographer Andy this time, and the end results are very different from my previous photoshoot. Hope you will like it.

The Socialite

She puts on her best smile and pretends that she has so many friends. High society frequents her parties and her name itself is the talk of the town.

People has their eyes dazzled by her charm and charisma, some casting envious eyes over all the good things she has in her life.

She looks so fine and her struggles can only be kept as secret. Deep loneliness burns within her and she feels like her whole life is merely an illusion. She can laugh so hard until it hurts, trying to carry on the act.

Nobody understands. And none can tell.

If you like this outfit, it’s from H&M. It is a love at first sight for me, although le husband thinks it resembles Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street. To me, how you carry a style is more important that the style itself. So… ya, I think I am started to have some potential in me to be a real socialite 😉

God bless all of you.

My Perfect Day

23 Jul

Having children had transformed my life at a cellular level.

“If you were wise enough to know that this life would consist mostly of letting go of things you wanted, then why not get good at the letting go, rather than the trying to have? These exotic revelations bubbled up involuntarily and I began to understand that the sleeplessness and vigilance and constant feedings were a form of brainwashing, a process by which my old self was being molded, slowly but with a steady force, into a new shape: a mother. It hurt. I tried to be conscious while it happened, like watching my own surgery. I hoped to retain a tiny corner of the old me, just enough to warn other women with. But I knew this was unlikely; when the process was complete I wouldn’t have anything left to complain with, it wouldn’t hurt anymore, I wouldn’t remember.”
Miranda July

The biggest part of motherhood transformation for me, is about discovery (or re-discovery). The world has been made entirely new by the presence of my children in it. I had forgotten how wonderful and magical fireworks are. I am as surprised as them every time we go exploring through the little garden and find bright green caterpillars resting on the leaves. It’s beyond imagination that we should be so lucky to blow bubbles in the yard and spot airplanes flying through the sky. And sometimes, when we are very lucky, a red dragonfly would land beside us. The world is insanely, incomprehensively amazing when you are being directed by a three-year-old and one-year-old.

Everything about the world is just so beautiful.

And a perfect day for me, is able to spend time with them, tell them stories and laugh over tiny silly things: such as when someone sneeze and we will all giggle and say bless you!

(I know, it all sound a bit boring and cliché, but being a mother makes you look at life rather differently.)

I no longer stick to my own agenda and the urge of chasing productivity has lost almost entirely. I am humbled. I just want to express a relatively small portion of me to the world, to love people well, to spend time with those that are important in my life. So motherhood constricted me, but it also makes me focus. Never in my life I am so clear about what really matters and what doesn’t.

Some days, I feel stronger and wiser than I have ever been.

Some days, I feel so stretched out and weak.

Some days, it is just perfect.

Like this particular day we spent cuddling in the hotel room and celebrated Annabelle’s 1st birthday.

Sometimes I would think about how I used to be before the children come, especially at night when everyone is asleep. And I realized that I don’t really remember my old self. Motherhood is the beginning of permanent transformation. I did it three years ago and it is the most amazing blessing I’ve ever known.

Thank you so much for reading.

God bless you.

Workwear Staple [Pencil Skirt X Stiletto]

8 Jun

Pencil Skirt copy

Been consumed by work lately and these series of pictures pretty much give you an idea of what I have been wearing and doing.

Pencil Skirt Millionmars 4

My go-to colour when it comes to work is definitely black. Black is just so bold and professional looking. When I wear black I don’t even need to worry about spilled coffee 😀

Pencil Skirt Millionmars 3

Pencil Skirt Millionmars 1

Today I am wearing a pencil skirt and it is a tricky one, cos’ the slim-fitting design makes ones body look tall and slim but at the same time restricting the leg’s movement. Like if I drop a pen on the floor, I need to put my legs together and tilted a bit before I can bend my knees and gently squad down a little (just a little) to pick up the pen. And maybe this is the whole point of a pencil skirt: To make every move smaller, more gentle and therefore MORE GRACEFUL!

Pencil Skirt Millionmars 7

Pencil Skirt Millionmars 8

This is a piece of workwear that I like so much. It is chic yet filled with classic detail such as the line of small round buttons at the back. It does take forever to button them all without pairing the wrong ones… *kidding* It is easier than it looks actually 🙂

Pencil Skirt Millionmars 6

On serious working days, I always like to have my stiletto on. It somehow empowers me and makes me feel taller *ahem* Believe it or not, I can mobilise easily in this pair of 4.5inch heels. Call me crazy, but I wore this pair of shoes and walked 4 hours non-stop when visiting an exhibition. People (especially females) adores me, and I am very proud of myself too… Hehehe…

Pencil Skirt Millionmars 9

We were rushing to work on that particular morning and Kelvin helped me took these pictures with his quick fingers at the hotel lobby. This is a sincere work done in less than 5 minutes, I hope you enjoy these photographs as much as we enjoy making it.

If you are planning to invest in a new workwear staple, I will definitely say: Pencil Skirts!

They are timeless.

Working is a part of our lives. And a job is not just a job. It says a lot about who you are. No matter where you are and what kind of job you are working on, I hope you reap what you sow and I wish you the very best in all that you are pursuing.

God bless you.
