And deep inside, her soul...

Happy Monday, everyone!
 
I am pretty much the type of girl who just wakes up and go, so what way is there to hide that non-presentable bed hair? I came across this super light-weight and breathable beanie while I was in Korea, and it is just perfect for the Edmonton weather we have right now (and of course for coverin' that bed hair). If any of you are looking for cool hats and stuff, do check out the collection they have at ASOS. Free shipping. Who doesn't like free shipping?!
 
And so as promised, here's a post that features a shirt from B+AB. Their designs are really unique and you can really dress up or dress down with their line. Nude and earth tones are always the easiest to wear in the Fall, so keep scrollin' down for more images. To play up the oufit, style it with bold colored accessories and there you'll have it. Casual, chic, and again, comfortable.
 
Oh ya, so recently I came across this really inspiring Christian beauty and fashion blog, and so I just thought I'd share it here. I found the blog through my lovely friend, Sarah. For all you women out there, do check it out! Beauty comes from the inside, so keep smiling =) Enjoy the gorgeous weather, everyone!
 
Also for all you ladies out there, I'd really want to remind you with this quote:
 
Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes.  Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. -1 Peter 3:3-4
 
Outer beauty fades. Inner beauty stays. Have a great week!

PS: Excuse how wrinkly my stuff is. Apparently, I'm a very lazy person when it comes to using the Iron or steamer.

Hi!

Summer is almost gone and regrettably I didn’t end up enjoying it much. I’m also a bit behind in terms of posting as well…work got a bit too crazy. I haven’t been shopping much except for acquiring a rose gold watch (finally) by Marc  Jacobs (Katy I blame you! lol) and recently, a coat for fall (which you might see in later ootds, but I prefer makeup posts more tbh).

And yes… I know my hair is getting really long but I was hoping to trim it after my cousin got married because I wanted to curl it hehe.

However…makeup wise. I have been constantly lusting over the Suqqu and Tom Ford collections. The quality of Suqqu lipsticks...let’s just say they are in their own league. If you try one, you won’t go back to anything else I guarantee. They are soo pigmented and creamy. The color selection though is rather “safe” but as I find with most high-end brands, keeping it “natural” is key. I’ll do a post on my Suqqu collection later on. But here, take a look at the Suqqu 2013 fall collection at Selphia. And the Tom Ford collection with two trios, one called “She Wolf” here at the beauty look book, and the other “In the Pink” here. God they’re just so pretty. Oh, and I might as well add the Lunasol 2013 Summer one too, by the lovely Reika sadly it’s limited edition and sold out everywhere :(.

P.s. Has anyone picked up anything from the Marc Jacobs range at Sephora? 

P.s.s. I had no idea my smile is so goofy HAHA

Funky Twist ft. Joyee

Hello all you lovely readers out there. Hope everything has been going well as the last few weeks of summer comes to an end. Is it just me, or did summer just zoom right by? Oh man...how depressing.

So for the past few weeks, I've been trying to follow a strict, but healthier diet. On top of that, I've been doing a lot more cardio and some weight training in hopes of toning up, gaining some abs, and losing some of that jiggly wiggly. I must say though, disciplining yourself takes a lot of effort. Some days I would fail and wake up late enough to skip the most important meal of the day-- breakfast. Then just end up being lazy for the rest of the day, and just sit at home. Anyone on the same boat as me?

Anyways as promised, here's a post that's a bit more colorful than some of my previous posts. Ok...maybe not just a bit more colorful...but ya. Some of these pictures might be a bit hard on the eye because of the high contrast, but just bear with me. I've been dying to do a post like this. If you ever want to make your outfit pop, just put together opposites and contrasting colors on the colorwheel, and there you'll have it. Just becareful though, cause it would either be super pleasing to the eye, or you will get horrified stares. This post features my friend Joyee, who put together, styled, and modeled the outfit. You guys can check out her style on her instagram (@joyeecheng).

Many of you might be wondering where Doris went, and I reassure you she's still alive. Haha. She's just busy with work! She will be posting soon! On a random note, I legit need to clean my room...so I guess I'll end the post here. Enjoy the rest of your summer, everyone!

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well- Matthew 6:33
