Hello this is the first outfit post of 2013! I’ve been away in Beijing and Hong Kong. It’s been freezing cold and I think I caught something in the pollution. I’m back and happy to be back, despite the good respite from the toil and grind of 9-to-5! (Actually it’s 8.30-6 for me)

Do ignore my weird expression – something’s not right with me because I’m ill but please enjoy my new HELL BUNNY dress! I have lost count… 4th?

Thanks for the fast fingers, photographer Eng!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: EDEN floral butterfly skull summer dress from HELL BUNNY (I got this from Sirens & Starlets)

Outerwear: Black cropped cardigan from WAREHOUSE

Accessories: White vintage necklace off eBay; Black calculator watch from CASIO; Blue ostrich skin tote from MARC BY MARC JACOBS

Legging: Black opaque tights from DOROTHY PERKINS

Footwear: Black square studded loafers from STEVE MADDEN



My gel nails (purple with gold french tip) was done in Hong Kong at Lisa Nail in Sheung Wan where my cousin Dawn lives.

My Stuff: Gym Essentials

Here’s a what’s in my bag post. I’ve been meaning to do one for a while now. Mostly, I’ve just been blogging about my make-up pouch but how about a peek into the gym bag which I tote around at least twice a week?

Bag: Grey single pocket nylon tote from MARC BY MARC JACOBS

Toiletries pouch: Red polka dotted oval-shaped pouch from CATH KIDSTON

Toiletries: ORIGINS No Offense alcohol-free deodorant; Natural wood wide-tooth comb from THE BODY SHOP; KAO Essential Damage Care Nuance Airy Shampoo & Conditioner; DERMALOGICA Special Cleansing Gel; ORIGINAL SOURCE mango & macadamia shower smoothie

Shoes: Light Pink NIKE shoe bag; Dark Pink NIKE FREE HYPER TR sneakers

Bottle: 16oz NALGENE water bottle (I literally guzzle water everyday and I’ve started carrying this in my handbag too)




I didn’t buy most of my toiletries. I’ve had a good steady supply of travel-sized ones since I started subscribing to BellaBox and Glamabox. Most of the stuff they put together are actually very reputable brands and I never had to worry.

So what are your gym essentials? What do you normally bring to the gym or your workouts?
