Top: Light blue denim shirt with star prints from OLD NAVY

Dress: Navy blue printed tank dress with in-built bra from UNIQLO

Leggings: Blue ribbed leggings from UNIQLO

Footwear: Black slouchy faux suede boots from AMAZON

I must say that the UNIQLO heat tech bra tops and dresses are a life saver this Winter. I’ve been wearing them almost everyday under my clothes. I have 3 tank tops and 2 dresses which I layer on for warmth and to hide/hold in my fats hahahhahahahaa

Today we took a bus from the Monroe Park & Ride to New York City itself. The journey took about 90 minutes and we alighted at the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

We were on a budget so we mostly did free things like walk down Times Square, 5th Avenue and also Central Park. I did my next NYAW feature photo shoot and we also met up with T’s cousins for dinner.

It was a beautiful day and warm outside so this is what I wore:

Top: Black & white polka dotted top from UNIQLO X LULU GUINNESS

Accessories: Orange polka dotted hair bow from thestreetsofbangkok

Bottom: Black skater skirt from TOPSHOP

Leggings: Black polka dotted leggings from DOROTHY PERKINS

Footwear: Black slouchy wide calf boots from REPORT (on Amazon)

Woohoo! I found time to blog today. Although it literally takes me less than 15 minutes to take photos and do a post via my iPhone, life has taken a hold of everything else and I haven’t properly sat down to compose anything. Hopefully I’ll have time to do at least 2 posts a week. Oh gosh! I’m so behind in everything I do outside of work that I just remembered that I haven’t mailed out the presents for the giveaway! Oh man! Sorry guys! I promise they’ll be in the post by the end of the week!

So anyway, hello 2012! You kinda suck already. But… Bleagh! I’ll have time to rectify that! I will, I will, I will!

So… Here’s a new outfit! Technically old because I bought it almost 6 months ago buy never got round to wearing it! Thanks to Rydwan for taking these pictures very quickly!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Peach lace and tulle dress from RODARTE FOR TARGET

Accessories: Black distressed leather belt from TOPSHOP; Black calculator watch from CASIO

Bag: Black PU leather Skull bag from Fashion_372146750 on eBay

Footwear: Brown vintage-inspired distressed boots from RUBI SHOES

Pink & Booties

Pink & Booties

This wasn’t the outfit I envisioned when I decided on what to wear today. I first put on a bright pink leopard print polyester top from RIVER ISLAND and decided that they didn’t go with my F21 leggings (VPL and all that). Also, I came to work without the long cardigan. It just got cold in the office and I had it hugging the back of my seat. Today, I also have a new photographer. I say thanks to Stephanie from Corp Comms… my colleagues are awesome.

My Stuff: Make-up Removers

I like wearing make-up and on most days, my eyes are really made up with the full works – mascara, eyeshadow and eyeliner. Removing make-up is a chore. I share a bathroom with 1 of my sisters and thankfully, she’s a cosmestics and skincare product freak. If it were left up to me, I’ll buy the cheapest thing on sale and depend on it. I’m not particular about facial scrubs or wash but I do have a few favourite products that I actually do stock up on my own.

In a previous post, I mentioned the L’Oreal Visible Radiance Renewing Gel Toner. I like this product because a) I need a toner for my oily combination skin b) Gel toners are great as they are not harsh on aging skin c) it’s not expensive at all!!

The other stuff I like and are within my budget are:

  • Kao Biore – Biore Cleansing Oil
Biore Cleansing Oil

Biore Cleansing Oil

Just squirt some into your hands, rub it all over your face, wash off with water. Then finish with facial wash. Great for full make-up days.

  • Boots – Essentials Fragrance Free Eye Make up Remover Pads

These round little discs help remove waterproof eye make-up well. Press one against your eye lid, gently wiggle it over your eye and wipe over your lashes. Unfortunately, I’ve run out of them and I’ll have to wait till someone buys them for me from Thailand or England (or wherever there’s BOOTS).

  • Kao Biore – Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Sheets
Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Sheets (Regular Pack)

Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Sheets (Regular Pack)

They come in several different packaging. A pack of 10 sheets – convenient for travelling; and a big utility pack of  48 sheets. I buy the utility size refills as I already have the nice box to pull it out of. This is great for those lighter make-up days. Just wipe your entire face with it, then cleanse with a normal facial wash.
