My Birthday Wish List 2014

Here is a more realistic wish-list of mine. Although I would like to think that dreams do come true and my dream wish-list could become a reality, we're not in a fantasy world where money grows on trees (and no, the fact that they are made of paper, which is technically from trees, does not make them easily picked at!).

This year, I wanted to focus on the things I already love and love to do. I really enjoy reading, but I'm a pretty hard person to buy books for because I go for specific genres and I cannot just read a random book; I normally have to go through a whole aisle and read the preface to see if I would enjoy it. With that said, while staying in the reading category, I went with books that are more of coffee table books that no one could go wrong gifting to anyone and definitely gifting to me!
Another favorite activity of mine, that I always invest my time in, more than once a week, is watching movies!  The two up there are movies I've wanted to watch and I pretty much know I'm gonna love so I might as well have them on DVD now! Then of course, just the little luxuries I enjoy, which are jewelry and perfume! :)

The Chic Gladiator

 One of the most exciting days of shopping was the day I found open-toed shoes that actually fit my not-so-attractive flat feet; I discovered these perfectly-fitted Steve Madden gladiator sandals. I have to admit, the day I found them was so full of excitement that I did not care about when or where I would wear them until the day I was cleaning my closet and re-discovered them a month after the purchase. (I know..)
It took me about an hour of sorting through my clothes then bam! Folded high-rise jeans and a blazer! You can't go wrong with a blazer -it's casual and perfect for anything, and the sandals would just add that touch of high fashion that will spruce up a casual outfit.
The blazer I dug up is by John Paul Richard which can easily be removed and show off the dog printed collared top I got at JCPenney by Anna B. And we can't forget the second star of the outfit, the high-rise jeans which are from Old Navy .
 The accessories include an Onyx cocktail ring by Kate Markus, a  Michael Kors silver watch and the Prada Saffiano Bowler Bag
 And of course, the star of the outfit: the gladiator bootie by Steve Madden (a similar style: Steve Madden Alexxia )

Urban Decay NAKED 3 Swatches & Comparison

Ladies and gents, the Urban Decay NAKED 3 Palette!
We thought we've had enough of Urban Decay's "NAKED" makeup, but obviously we did not express any form of tire when we found out that UD was releasing a new palette; the newest addition to the NAKED line -NAKED 3!
Upon seeing the press photos for the new palette, I was not intrigued at all because it looked quite similar to the Naked 2. I snubbed it. Not until I read more about the palette that I started to feel excitement. On the Urban Decay website, the Naked 3 is described as a rose-toned neutral palette, and that's when I was sold! I am one for everything rose-toned when it comes to eyeshadow. I prefer rose golden tones -browns with hints of pink- for my eyeshadow as I find that it compliments my lid color more than any other colors; even brown looks kind of harsh on my lids.
After finding such information, I jumped and signed up for e-mails on to ensure that I get the word once the palette has been launched. Sadly, signing up was useless! If it weren't for Instagram, I would have never found out that the palette had been launched! I have some Instagram friends to thank for that. It was 8:00am and I had just woken up. As usual, I go and check Instagram and as I was scrolling through, I stumbled upon screenshots of the Urban Decay website's announcement of the palette's launch and I immediately ran to the dining room where my laptop was, almost slipping, and bought two palettes just to make sure. I got reaaaallly lucky that I saw the screenshot on Instagram early because a little over an hour after purchasing, the palette was sold out! Of course.
As I had mentioned, I felt skeptical about purchasing the Naked 3 because of its similarity to the Naked 2 according to the press pictures before its launch. After two days of worrisome, waiting by the door for the mail man, waiting for the palette to arrive, I was finally able to see it for myself and compare. I'm glad to say that I had nothing to worry about!
Once you see the palette in person you will see that Naked 3 is simply rosy and just that will show how different it is to the Naked and Naked 2 palettes.
The following pictures show the palette on top of each other to enable comparison. As with anything, the camera cannot do 100% justice to the colors, but I can assure you that there is barely a similarity to the Naked 3 with any of the other Naked palettes.
It's simply rose-toned!

The palette retails for $52.00 USD and can only be purchased on as of right now. I have heard from UD employees that it will be available in stores mid-December, but I can almost guarantee that it will be available before Christmas; it just has to be!

Autumn Day in the Foggy City

A casual outfit that keeps you hands-free in the chicest of way, thanks to the Louis Vuitton Eva Clutch in the classic Damier Ebene print.

The accessories can sometimes make the outfit, and in this case, indeed they do. If I took off the scarves, the gold watch and the Eva clutch in its crossbody form, the outfit will simply be a jacket and boots. But here we see that the color combination livens up the 'jacket and boots' look.

Getting into the small details. Fortunately, most of the pieces are easily found at many stores as the trendy combination is quite common nowadays. Some of the pieces I remember purchasing are the jacket (, boots (Marshalls), watch (DKNY), jeggings (Target) and the Eva clutch (
Autumn colors done the simplest way!

My Holiday Wish-list 2013!

This wish-list is obviously on a much lesser humble-note. I guess it would be something of a dream-wish-list as I am aware that it is quite impossible to get every single one of these products, but I will be quite content with either one of these --Probably more if I get the Prada wallet haha.

Here's a breakdown of the products:

Jo Malone "Blackberry & Bay"
Jo Malone has been my only fragrance destination since I discovered it at the Nordstrom in Westfield San Francisco exactly a year ago. I have smelled and sampled at least 20+ of their scents and I have fallen hard-love on the "Blackberry & Bay" scent. I am almost done with the current bottle I have since it has become my chosen cologne for everyday so I will need one very soon.

Prada Saffiano Wallet
Since I started using wallets I have always owned black ones, which are very hard to find inside a handbag that is parallel to the looks of a black hole, so to banish such dilemma, I would really like a colored wallet -preferably red. I am a pretty matchy-matchy person even with the accessories inside my purse and since my makeup bag is Prada, I would also like my new wallet to be Prada. And plus, I am madly in love with Prada's iconic saffiano leather.

Jeffrey Campbell "Everly" Boots
I have always wanted Jeffrey Campbell shoes -and yes, even the iconic Litas, but let's be real, not everyone can walk in them, so why bother? I opted for the very trendy Everly boots and I am quite excited to rock them if I get the chance to get ahold of a pair.

Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronze Universal
Need I say more? If you are a beauty junkie, you will be familiar with this sought-out bronzer that is nothing but goddess in a tub. Oh the looks I could do with this one product! This product I could probably get myself, but when given a chance to get it for free, why not? haha  

RayBan Large Aviators
If you know me personally, you may know that I love sunglasses and have been hoarding them since the day I got contact-lenses. The iconic RayBan Aviators are a pair I need to hopefully complete my collection.
