Why I Don't Eat Maggi Cup Noodles.

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

The last time I remember eating Maggi Cup Noodles was in 2008 in Bangkok, because by the time I checked in the hotel, everything was closed and the roadside food looked like stuff thats been re-fried 15 times, minimum. But aside from that, I don't eat cup noodles. I know it's an awesome 2 step of pour hot water and add powder that only takes about 5 minutes.

But this only takes 8 minutes.

What She Wore 10: Print on Print, Work to Play.

Friday, July 22, 2011


Ok, this look may not be kosher in most office environments (save the Media line)...

Photobucket

...but keep in mind, I don't work in one ;)

I enjoy throwing on  suit jacket as it adds an instant sharpness to a casual look.

Photobucket

Black Suit Jacket - G2000 Women
 Ring - Bazaar Find.

And the best part is when it gets too hot, you can just slip it off and fling it over your shoulders for that sexy devil-may-care swag.


Photobucket

Printed Bow Top - Rope Picnic, Japan.
Aviators my cat broke- Eclispse, Singapore.
It's Summer so bright and bold colors are the best accessory for the shameless!


Photobucket

Red Clutch Wallet - Marc Jacobs, London.
Red Lips - Laura Mercier Portofino Spring Collection in 'Sunrise'.
Orange Gel Nails - OPI Color Couture, Bangsar.

And for those too shy to call much unwanted attention with brazen colors,
you can swap your denims and blacks for more neutral shades!

Photobucket

Light Brown Printed Shorts - Momeo

All in all, have fun with prints!
A lot of people snubbed the print on print trend, but I find it really do-able if you go for small ones (Banish leopard on tiger striped from your mind NOW pls)
But if you do, I'm not hatin' because Summer is indeed a reminder about not taking yourself too seriously, no? ;)

Photobucket

Top that off with a simple wedge and you've got a date with Summer Cheer and Comfort!

Photobucket

Wedges- Bisbee, Plaza Damas.

Recovering Love Junkie.

Friday, July 15, 2011

Would you choose to live through a lifetime of lovers, weaving the spines of the greatest tragedy lined love stories;
Or would you prefer to nestle in the warmth of a familiar and dwell in the soft happiness of everyday?
I find the grass will always seem greener and one is not necessarily better than the other,
if you are impartial to Life as a gamble anyway.

So, which will you pick, given a choice,
A double sided coin of Magic and Misery
or the practicality of an everyday happiness?




I'm not picky and eat whatever plate that I'm served.
And for the first time, I  have a prime cut of Practicality.

I'll tell you how it tastes when I'm done eating it.

Summer 2011 Color Story; Laura Mercier Portofino!



My sister is back from Seattle and while hitting up Bangsar Village 2,
we went 'Nauti-gal' and said hello to Laura Mercier!

Photobucket

Hot?
NO, we are going for warm tones! ;)

You see, it's still cold in Seattle, so I had to dip my sis in everything sunny in KL!
And that was made easy with the Laura Mercier Portofino Summer 2011 collection!

Photobucket

Well captured, I'd say as I imagine a holiday at Portofino in Italy would embody just that.

Photobucket

Something nautical inspired, something flambouyantly warm yet mutedly elegant in it's boldness.

The Bangsar Village Laura Mercier counter carried more of the Portofino collection than I could justify buying for my make up collection, sadly :( *I WANT IT ALL*


Photobucket

But I'm a totaly sucker for Limited Ed's so I had to get dusted with their Riviera eye make up palatte!

Photobucket

Vanny, a Laura Mercier friendly and informed staff, offered to help me out with the Portofino eye make up and luckily she did because I now know a brand new way to wear my eyeliner;
in mystical blue instead of black!

Photobucket

*boring girl  make up technique GUYS should skip part entirely*

She lined the top and lower bottom my eyes with a navy blue pencil before dusting it over with the limited editions Riviera palatte's dark blue. After that she lightly blended in some of the nude over my lid and used the light blue for the waterline of my eyes. The white made a perfect highlight for my brow and nose to finish the look :)


Waiting in boredom didn't suit my sis...

Photobucket

.....so she got her pout prettied up with the Laura Mercier Portofino's Sunrise Cream Lip Color!
And how could I resist being a copy cat and us looking like twinsies!

Photobucket

The color went fabby with my orange mani! (Notice the blue cat eyes!)
I know Springs IT color is orange but it doesn't translate to make up for the fashion faint-hearted.
So orange based colors like the Laura Mercier Portofino Sunrise will keep you tastefully trendy ;)
And to get you even trendier yet, Laura Mercier is giving away....

Photobucket

Coppe&Sid: Optical Glasses for the Niche Non-Masses

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Photobucket
I want to act professional and stand neutral to introduce this brand but I can’t;


Photobucket

Photobucket


From the moment I spotted and tried on every single piece in their Cosmopolitan collection I became
a CoppeSid convertee.

Photobucket


The pieces are inspired by the lifestyle and named after 15 major cities and it represents a contemporary take on the classic quintessential designs.; Amsterdam, Hong Kong, London, LA, Melbourne, Milan, Miami, New York, Paris, Singapore, Sydney, Seoul, Tokyo, Toronto and Taipei.

Photobucket
How Cosmopolitan! Yes or yes?

So, when celebrity stylist Ryan Ho managed to get Mr.Coppe himself to do an interview with me while he was in Malaysia, I cleared my Saturday schedule for a sit down at Malaya Optical’s Damansara Uptown outlet.

The man behind the glasses.

Photobucket

Gualtiero Coppe has been in the luxury eyewear line for 20 years and has the experience of working with the most acclaimed fashion brands and also the best recognized companies for design and eyewear. He started this Cosmopolitan series with Sid Fiz to produce accessible luxury eyewear for the niche market of people who refuse to compromise quality and style over a brand name.



3 things to know (then covet) about CoppeSid!
  • Authentic Craftsmanship.
A lot of designer brands have digressed to outsourcing their labour in places like China and bank in on their commercial fame. Thus, we are paying the high price for a low production item. However, CoppeSid is not only made in Italy, it is also done entirely by hand! So at least you know every dollar goes into the authentic craftsmanship that is held to high European standards.

Photobucket




  • Unique process.
Multi colored layers in plastic eyewear adds that touch of uniqueness many desire in an object as personal as glasses. Most brands use an adhesive substance to merge the color blocks before cutting the shape. Instead, CoppeSid use a special frictioning process so there is more flexibility in design as seen in these pieces.


Photobucket
Amsterdam (Black)

Notice how the plastic curves where it converges?
That requires a special Coppe & Sid frictioning technique!


Photobucket
London (Havana)

One for the vintage darlings!
You'll be hard pressed to find such flexibility in design elsewhere, nor affordably so.





  • Lucky Luxury Trademark.
The company trademark of a royal blue square is also integrated onto each pairs tip as a touch of luxury as it is made from Lapiz Lazuli, a precious stone that is often deemed as a harbinger of good luck.

Photobucket

Photobucket
After much friendly bathering about the inside of the luxury eyewear trade in Italy, Mr.Coppe told me the Kuala Lumpur inspired piece was just released recently in May and is now available along with Berlin, Bangkok and Auckland!

Can't wait to try it on myself :)))))))))))

Photobucket


Coppe and Sid Cosmopolitan series is available at all MALAYA OPTICAL outlets (click for Uptowns GPS location) and also selected stores.
