Content in Hawaii - USA VISUAL DIARY

Feeling happy is an understatement.
I feel content. Content is when you're in a state of peaceful happiness. Sure there are things still going on in my life while I was in Hawaii but knowing that I've achieved yet another one of my biggest dreams, I feel like I can overcome any situations in life. Just seeing the sunset makes me feel sooooooo extraordinarily happy.

I feel content. Even though I can't share it with two of my favorite people in the world, but I'm forever grateful to have spent it with one of the people I love so much, my grandma.
Anyone who knows me knows how close I am with my grandma, so to spent a whole month traveling with her was nothing short of amazing. She's so caring and I admire her so much, I learn so much from her and I wouldn't trade our times together for the world.

I feel content. Beyond happy and forever grateful, for all the things that happened in my life.
For all the struggles that brought me to where I am today, for all the memories that I'm able to cherish my whole life.

And in that moment, I swear I feel like nothing can bring me down. I feel content.

Aloha Honolulu - USA VISUAL DIARY

How can I ever stop admiring the beautiful things mother earth can offer? Hawaii shows me so much beauty in one place and brought so much joy and color into my life.

Honolulu got all the things you want, a mountain view, the bluest ocean and the city life. Very unexpected. So many things to offer to the tourists, anything you want to explore, buy or see is there in Honolulu. 

I'm so glad to have walked around the Waikiki area all by myself, just soaking every single thing in. Peeled my eyes so that I won't missed a thing!

Valentine 2016

A late post but not going to be missed. 

Happy belated Valentine's day, loves.

This Valentine, I spent with the people I love most and the one I care so deeply.
Not going to missed a moment, I stayed away from my phone and tried to make every second captured, in my heart and in my memories. 

This Valentine my favorite scent is the Givenchy eaudemoiselle; floral and very light.
And staying comfortable, this Cosabella lace bra is perfect for the Valentine's day in.

Stay lovely.

Favorite Noms with Moms

Throwback to a lunch I had with my mother in Paul, Pacific Place.
It was soooo good. I'm addicted to the orange, carrot and ginger juice. Also the salmon avocado toast was amazing. I forgot the exact name but ugh, how I wish I can have that for lunch right now!

This hump day, stay positive and drink some tea.

My twitter bio is a saying "drink water and mind your own business today"

I feel like it is so true, some people and myself need a reminder here and there to stay hydrated and minding our own business. 
It might be something we do consciously or unconsciously, it's not always a bad thing but sometime it'll help lessen our stress and ease our heart. 

Staying positive is not easy sometimes but it is easier than worrying about something uncertain, and just know that everything happened for a reason. Do your best and never lose hope. 

Stay Positive.

Stay Stylish,

Family Wedding

My loves.

My family is very close to one another, aaaand we had a wedding last night! 
Another one of my cousin got married, whoop whoop. It was soooo exciting. I cried when I saw her in Kebaya. Everything became so real and in my head I had a really fast forwarded flashback about our childhood and oh my god, I miss those moments. Now we're older with more responsibilities and our own dreams. I hope that we're still going to be close with each other until we're grandma and grandpa.

Happy wedding, Mba Nia! Wish all the happiness in the world for the both of you. xx

Stay Stylish,

Cushnie et Ochs 003fw16-tc-21116 Cushnie et Ochs 007fw16-tc-21116 

Something about this collection that screams femme fatale to me. The sleek hair, the sexy pointy shoes, the leather and the cut. The clothes exude confident, that's the only thing matters really.

I love the flow of the dresses, the fabric are very well thought of. No beading or applique needed for extra umpfh but enough for an outstanding collection.

Marchesa F/W 2016 NYFW

Marchesa 004fw16-tc-21116 Marchesa 006fw16-tc-21116

Oscar de la Renta F/W 2016 NYFW

Oscar de la Renta 006fw16-tc-21116 Oscar de la Renta 028fw16-tc-21116

Had to talk about Oscar's show with Peter Copping as creative director. Living up to Oscar's legacy must have not been easy. But Peter shows how he is trying to make it possible whilst still having his stamp on it. Oscar always make sure that his clothes complements the women. Peter stays true to it, he has some pattern and lace, also working with different fabrics and beading, that are oh so gorgeous!

Rodarte F/W 2016 NYFW

Rodarte003fw16-tc-21116 Rodarte006fw16-tc-21116 

I feel like Rodarte is going to be that one designer that gives me endless inspirations. From the set to the clothes to the music, Rodarte exude inspirations and imaginations. From the moment that I first read about the Rodarte sisters, I knew they were going to bring something different to the industry.

Red Valentino F/W 2016 NYFW

Red Valentino 004fw16-tc-21116 Red Valentino 006fw16-tc-21116 

"Don't give them what they think they want, give them what they don't know they want it yet"

And I feel like this collection give me exactly that. Very unexpected, but yet exactly what I want from Red Valentino. Young, edgy but yet lady like and classy, classic and chic. And this collection exactly just that. Wordings on clothes can easily become too in your face and not classy but the font and placing in these clothes are so classy that you can wear them to a red carpet and for lunch. I love that the denim and yellow mustard brought so much youth into it and the stripes just stands for a classic clothes that will lasts. I think the patches are really cool and they are made into something that is very Valentino. Continuing with previous collections, floral are there some elements of studs.

Maiyet005fw16-tc-21116 Maiyet022fw16-tc-21116 

 YES. I love this modernized MOD look from the 60s. One of the chicest era! I'm down for the preppy look mix with edge. I'd wear these clothes errday. 

Also, talk about the fabric... Soooo amazingly tailored. Love it.


The Row001fw16-tc-21116 The Row016fw16-tc-21116 

 The Row women are what I dream to be, simple. My style is not simple, I can never go out with plain clothes and no accessories. I feel weird not adding more drama to my outfit. Thus seeing The Row for me is soo refreshing. Their silhouettes and fabric choices speaks for the brand's identity and its designer. And we all know, the Olsen sisters are one of the most stylish sisters in the world!

Carolina Herrera F/W 2016 NYFW

Carolina Herrera000fw16-tc-21116 Carolina Herrera003fw16-tc-21116

 Carolina Herrera is such an iconic woman. She is one of my fashion inspirations, her style is strong and classy. 

The collection is feminine with mostly pastels and cool tones. The applique and sleek designs are flawless. I feel like the designs are modern and inspired by the like of, Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly.

Jonathan Simkhai F/W 2016 NYFW

Jonathan Simkhai004fw16-tc-21116 Jonathan Simkhai008fw16-tc-21116

Embroidery cut outs, fur, fringe, oh my!

Every silhouette in this collection will make every women feel stunning! The hour glass figures are shaped through the stitching, peplum and cutouts. BTW I am loving the necklines too, really flattering.

Sally LaPointe F/W 2016 NYFW

Sally LaPointe000fw16-tc-21116 Sally LaPointe004fw16-tc-21116

 When people asks, in fashion do you prefer comfort or looks? I'd always say both! I believe fashion should be about expressing yourself and feel comfortable. Some fashion items might hurt, like heels. The key is to know your body type and what your body can handle.

This Sally LaPointe collection shows how fashion can be both comfortable and sexy at the same time. I can't wear a deep plunging neckline because I'm a bit busty, so I'd opt for a straight across dresses or something that would cover the cleavage. And since this is a F/W collection, these turtle neck sweaters would be perfect whilst elongate your neck. I'm loving the leather jacket and the black overcoat with fur sleeves, so chic!

3.1 Phillip Lim F/W 2016 NYFW

3.1 Phillip Lim000fw16-tc-21116 3.1 Phillip Lim005fw16-tc-21116 

What can I say, leather clothes are my thing. I'm so ecstatic about the collection. Very New York; tough, rich and intricate. The coats are stunning and the velvet give an elegant touch. I'm not really into the zipper neckline and open toe shoes. However, the patterns are such a classic so if you want to splurge on it, it'll be worth it.

Prabal Gurung F/W 2016 NYFW

The play in textures is beyond belief, and Prabal succeed yet again. 
His collections are always jaw dropping, and no doubt he's one of the most amazing designers in the industry. 
He always keep it fresh and amazed us with his latest ideas. This time around, his collection is so intricate, but yet the women look so graceful. 
The high slit, the undone button, the leather elements, the fur, the knitted aaand the distinctive cut - on the jackets especially, all comes together into one cohesive collection that everybody lust.
