I’ve been trying out this new look without the eyeliner and if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’d probably have seen it. I ran out of my favourite Maybelline eyeliner and they don’t sell it in the US! I’ve tried similar ones – fine, felt tip and black, but it’s just not the same so I’m just trying to do without it until my new supply comes in when my family comes and visit next…   

What I’m wearing today:

Outerwear: Red plaid shirt from H&M

Top: Crimson tank top from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Crochet rocket pop brooch from TWINKIECHAN; Set of 4 acrylic bangles from PRIMARK

Leggings: Grey/Black geometric print leggings from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Brown bow-tie ballet flats from OLD NAVY

Another day in the life of a housewife living in the Mojave desert. I wore this to go pick up pizza and do errands at the Dollar Store!

Anyway, to beat the summer heat – more t-shirts and more shorts! I got these Old Navy shorts recently when they went on sale at $8 (originally $22.94) and like my cuffed denim shorts, they are a LIFE SAVER! I think the cuffs actually make them more “polished” if I can use that word to describe it. More, you know… dressy and less sloppy? What do you think?

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey TENNIS band tee

Accessories: Brown pleather belt from STEVE MADDEN; Set of 4 bangles from PRIMARK, Black bow headband with skull & crossbones from FOREVER21

Bottom: Barnswallow (That’s a COLOUR??) Cuffed-Twill Boyfriend shorts from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Tan Bow-Tie Ballet Flats from OLD NAVY

IMG_6005So today we take it outside. I’m just experimenting. Are you sick of seeing our hall tree and our “mud room” yet? It’s not really a mud room, it’s just a vestibule outside our bedroom and where you enter from the garage. I usually do my pictures there because that’s where my shoes are and right outside the bedroom after I get dressed. It also doesn’t hurt that there’s a set of full glass sliding doors letting the light into the house.

We have a little yard outside our bedroom and Max is probably King of the area because he likes lying out on the flagstones in the day. My problem is the wind and the weird angle at which the sun hits our house so I have to catch the right time to take these pictures. I’ll probably try it out a few more times just for variety if not anything.

IMG_6006What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Maroon & blue printed short sleeved dress from PRIMARK

Accessories: Gold bow stretchy belt from BCBGENERATION

Bag: Black kiss-clasp purse from PAUL FRANK

Footwear: Black wedge pumps from ZIPIA

IMG_5653This has been my default “travel tote”. I just dump everything I need when I’m out of state/country. Everything from my wallet and phone, to wet wipes and facial tissue, a spare cardigan or a bottle of water! I love that it’s so summery! Do you like carrying large bags?

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Charcoal grey cotton jersey JULIA dress from Patricia Valery on etsy.com

Accessories: Set of 4 bangles from PRIMARKLilac acrylic statement necklace from TALISMAN’S (at Far East Plaza)

Bag: Pink and Beige large canvas tote from KATE SPADE

Footwear: Sparkly purple patent leather ballet flats from STEVE MADDEN

These shoes are quite bad for walking too long in. They’re sparkly and pretty BUT it’s constructed with a very stiff manmade material that give me blisters – maybe because my feet are too wide. My little toes on the ends will develop bunions if I wear them for extended periods. I do love them so much and carried them from Singapore to Las Vegas because they are pretty! LOL! Got them from Zalora for a steal!
