The end of a stressful week is finally here! I finished watching Iron Fist and have moved on to 13 Reasons Why. Yup, I have been doing a bit of Netflix binging as I find it a stress relief, whereas, blogging could actually be a bit stressful at times! Mary Kay’s Light, Reinvented spring collection is bursting with pinks and pastels and a little bit of brightness is really what I need in life right now. This collection was released back in February, but I’ve only gotten around to trying them out until recently.
I don’t really accessorize. When I do want to dress up a bit, some of the pieces I wear are from Pandora; and I have quite a long wishlist now. Funnily enough; I love their rings, earrings, and necklaces a bit more than their charms. Pandora’s 2017 Spring Collection contains a mix of bright colours and pastels.
So I’ve been looking into building a capsule wardrobe, and as un-minimalist as I am, the concept seems like a fun challenge and will probably help me figure out which pieces in my closet shouldn’t stay anymore and I can spend less on clothes. I want to look fancy without the flamboyant colours and want pieces that work for something fancy or something casual.
And I’m ashamed to admit I have clothes in my closet that I bought but never wore out. I pick up things where I can go “OOOH I’ll look so good in this in the office,” but in my work place, we don’t dress formal. (Or I’ll be met with questions such as “where are you going tonight?!”) Yet, I feel like I work better when I dress better – and I want to reduce time and effort in pairing up clothes when I have my capsule wardrobe handy. Basically, it’s having 30-40 essential pieces of clothing (including shoes and bags) to rotate and mix/match with to create different outfits. I’m going to be realistic and generous to my self; I probably need around 40 pieces.
I’ve finally crawled out of my hole and back on here! I almost forgot how to blog and it was almost hard getting back into this routine. I’m also back to wearing a lot of makeup and look like my face didn’t go through hell. Some of the lipsticks I’ve been trying out are the new Lise Watier Rouge Intense Suprême Lipsticks. I’m quite happy to be wearing a lipstick that isn’t a liquid or a matte; cream lipsticks have always been a favourite for me!
Hi everyone! *sighs* It’s been 5 years and 1 month since I started my blogging journey here! That’s like, half a decade, and I’m surprised I managed to make it this far. My brain has a bit too fried lately to do any makeup or skincare reviews (rest assured, there IS a lot coming,) but just want to ramble on here for now, show an #ootd, and feature my latest water bottle, gifted from Copper H20.
