MINTY

October 27, 2012

I am determined to add some colorful and playful pieces to my rather basic and neutral wardrobe this season. The Mint Sweater is from JCREW – every single American is raving about JCREW so I finally jumped on the bandwagon since they are offering free international shipping at the moment. I bought some “iconic” JCREW sweaters in different fabrics such as cashmere, merino wool and cotton blend, and hands down cashmere blend is the best. This one in the picture is called Jackie Pullover which is made of cotton. It has a slim fitted silhouette that comes in a rainbow of colors. The skirt and the shoes are new pieces that were featured in my September wishlist.

Hello everyone, Happy New Year and I hope you all had a nice Christmas break! I did. I was in hiatus for two weeks and during which I did absolutely nothing other than sleeping and eating, which is exactly what an ideal break should be for me . I had planned to blog more unfortunately that didn’t happen..but I did manage to overcome my laziness and wrote a few blog posts which I will be posting them up in the next few days.

I went to a wharf near my home to watch the fireworks on New Year’s eve, and before it was flooded with people  I had quickly taken a few shots.

Lace Tee by Bec and Bridge – one of my favorite Australian designers, bought it from GrandSocial.

One of my readers asked me what are my favorite perfumes. It is quite hard for me to pick because my preference for fragrances changes in different seasons – I wear totally different perfumes in winter time to summer time .

In this post I am just going to show my all time favorite classic perfumes. They  have been around for a long time – with a new perfume being released every week I have yet to find any that could replace them. I will always re-buy them if they run out.

I don’t have a preference for a particular scent,  the ones I picked fall into different categories:

STEP OUT OF SHOWER - does it make sense? I am obsessed with this scent though!

Amazing Grace by Philosophy: My top pick. I love it so much I even bought a roller version of it so I can carry it with me everywhere.

Banana Republic: It is also beautiful, definitely good value for money.

VANILLA – with a hint of sweet note

They are my “dating” perfumes, the kind of scent guys are attracted to. I use to wear them religiously when I was dating my bf (now hubby) haha. He loves them

Addict by Dior

Armani Code by Giorgio Armani

CITRUS AND JASMINE

Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana – citrusy, perfect for summer.

Daisy by Marc Jacobs – Jasminey, although it is such a common scent there is something about this one that makes it so appealing to me. I am pretty sure my next perfume purchase will be the Eau So Fresh Daisy by Marc Jacobs

NEROLI / ORANGE BLOSSOM – I am totally crazy about this scent right now.

Orange Blossom by Jo Malone – the best one in the market! To me  it smells the most pure out of all the orange blossoms in the market.

Neroli by Laura Mercier – this one is not in my all time favorite fragrances list. I don’t like it as much as Jo Malone’s – it is more warm than JM so I reach for this one more in Winter.

On a side note,  I like to layer Orange Blossom with French Lime Blossom or Nectarine Blossom and Honey by Jo Malone – they combined into the most unique and captivating scent.
