Wedge sneakers: Pull & Bear
Sunday, January 19, 2014
I've been asked a lot about the ombré glitter nails I wore throughout the holiday season and I wanted to share how I did it with you :) I've been inspired with the holiday season's glitter craze and I once saw a picture of this design with red nail polish. I wanted something more light and less bold so I opted for a cream base instead.
Before anything, I always start with a base coat to strengthen and protect my nails from discoloration (You know how you get those icky yellow nails after removing your polish? This is one way to prevent that). After one coat of the base polish, I applied three coats of the cream colour, I got mine from RedEarth cosmetics. I did three coats because the colour was way too light and sheer and I wanted an opaque base. After allowing it to air dry, I moved onto the clear polish with silver glitter from Sinful Colors. I started to dab a few onto the bottom part of my nails. After dabbing, I lightly drag the brush upwards, making sure that most of them are still on the bottom and only a few are dragged above. I apply another coat of the glitter polish still making sure that it mainly stays on the bottom, then I scrape off the remaining polish on the bottle and drag from bottom upwards. You can even apply a few more glitter above if needed, this really depends on you. I decided not to add a clear top coat because the glitter polish is enough, but you can go ahead if you want to. You can experiment with this and maybe try to do it upside down, heavy glitter on top and gradually fading below, or you can also cover your ring finger with full glitter for a more "off-the-moment" look :) Enjoy!

Tank top: H&M
Vintage Floral Skirt: Bambah Boutique
PS This skirt is my favourite clothing item right now! I got it from Bambah, a lovely vintage boutique located at Jumeirah Beach Road. You should go and visit, you won't regret it. They have amazing pieces and the good part is, you won't find someone who owns the same piece as you do, Bonus! ;)

Winter is slowly coming to us now, and this type of mid-season weather is just perfect for those relaxing beach days and walk around the park. Where I live, we don't experience Fall or Spring, it's either summer (extreme summer that is) or winter. I'm excited to start bringing out my boots and cozy jumpers but before the summer season ends, allow me to indulge in my shorts and cut-out tank tops. I'm loving my DIY cut-out tank with a trippy ribcage print at the front. I bought this on my last trip to the Philippines and actually got it from the men's section, it was a bit loose so I decided to cut the armhole even more for a cool beach cover-up. The shorts from New Look, was a gift from a good friend of mine and they matched perfectly with the tank-top's colours. I finished my look with my trusty Vans sneakers and my fave leopard Vans cap.
Are you guys excited about the upcoming winter? Or are you secretly hoping it won't come so you can show a little peek of your toned body? ;)

I'm more of a jeans, loose-tee and sneakers kind of girl and this day was one of those where you just want to get ready and head out of the door instead of making three or more outfit changes and poses by your mirror.
Since I'm always after the comfort factor and opt for basic silhouettes, I try to incorporate some fun prints into my everyday looks. So I combined this loose stripe tee with my fave floral vans sneakers. Comfy top, check, fitted yet super cosy jeans, check, fun kicks, check! Okay grab some breakfast and out of the door! (I would never forget food, it's that important to me)
