BUYING MY OWN PRADA BAG

BUYING MY OWN PRADA BAG

 

I can’t remember how I came across it, but I discovered the online luxury consignment store, TheRealReal, last week. They only sell 100% authentic goods at much much lower prices than their original retail (since it’s all second-hand). I don’t mind sifting through second-hand items at all if it means coming across fashion gold in the form of VINTAGE. I looove shopping for vintage pieces. I guess that’s mostly because the pieces carry the appeal of being rare/uncommon and there’s just something about a design that can stand the test of time and still look wonderful and inspiring despite the fact that it’s not what’s currently trendy. Another big plus: it’s pretty much the most environmentally-friendly way to shop.

CREATING MY STYLE GUIDE

As I mentioned in one of my latest posts, I’ve been loving Daria Andronescu’s Wonder Wardrobe ideology lately.

Most importantly, what you put on before you leave the house is due to 1. Your shopping habits and 2. How you outfit plan. ย These should be strategically done in order to optimise your wardrobe.

MY MAKEUP EVOLUTION

MY MAKEUP EVOLUTION

I’ve always had a fascination for makeup even as a child. My addiction, however, started a little over 2 years ago. It all began with Maybelline everything, most especially their BB cream and one particular lip liner that was practically just a nub when I permanently “borrowed” it from my mother.

I’VE STRUCK YOUTUBE GOLD

Lately I’ve been coming across a few really good YouTube channels so I thought I’d make a little list of them all here, cos they are just too good not to talk about. Steering away from my usual YouTube diet (hours on end of all the well-kwown beauty gurus like Carli and Tati), these channels just bring uniquely valuable pieces of media to the table. It really amazes me how an everyday folk can almost 100% independently produce and distribute their own personal content that could match the likes of what we’re shown by big media production companies.
