Zalora X Daniel Wellington

Zalora now has Daniel Wellington watches on their website! The styles are classic and will never go out of fashion. You can customise the straps and even wear their jewelry. If you are keen do check out the link I will put at the end of this post. But for now let's look at their watches! 

Classy Glasgow-Watch Rose Gold 26mm
This watch is so versatile you can pair it with jeans and a t-shirt or with a dress. The stripes detail on the watch strap and the rose gold hardware boasts both class and a laid back vibe. I would recommend this watch as a gift for someone who wants to stay casual and sophisticated at the same time.

Classy Winchester-Watch Silver 34mm
Are you a girly girl who loves looking put together and pretty in pink at the same time? This watch is for you. It features silver hardware and a pink stripe that runs along the watch strap. Perfect for outings with the girls or a casual lunch date with your significant other.

Classic Black Reading Watch 36mm
Do you know of an older gentleman or simply someone who wants to look extra good for clients? This classic number is for you. It has an elegant but yet understated design featuring rose gold hardware and a leather strap. Perfect to go with your suits or dinner dates.

Classic Black Cornwall Watch 40mm
My favourite, I love the NATO strap and the silver hardware on this number. It is both stylish and sleek great to wear it out to work or for play. You can imagine a spy wearing this watch while on secret missions around the world. Play the part of an international woman of mystery with this dark mysterious time piece.

Working Out With Dumbbells

The chinese new year is almost over and so here is a workout video!

It is my first work out video I did focusing on using dumbbells you can adjust and use heavier dumbbells for your own routine.

I have since switched to these neoprene ones I got from qoo10 website.

What is the difference between neoprene and vinyl you may ask?

Well as a dumbbells non-expert I researched a little and discovered that vinyl gets sticky as you sweat and use it it also attracts dust. Whereas the neoprene one remains dry as you exercise and does not attract dust the surface is not as sticky compared to the vinyl one. Neoprene costs more but is a better investment if you intend to use weights for a long time.

One tip for people that do not like to exercise is to get attractive workout gear. Places that I like to get workout gear include Cotton On and H&M. I usually buy the sales item since I don't want to spend a bomb on workout clothes and I don't own any gym membership. Exercise in these clothes so that you associate workouts with it. Than when you are feeling unmotivated and you wear the exercise clothes and just spend your day going about your routine you will slot in exercise time automatically. Your mind has already been tuned into working out when you wear these exercise clothes. Alternatively you can use music to condition your body to work out so every time you play this tune you will think of working out.

If you still cannot get motivated to work out slot in 1 or 2 minute workouts such as doing 20 squats, 20 reverse crunches or 20 waist twist exercise all spaced out throughout your day. These exercises require no equipment and you do not need to leave home to do it.

Actually all my exercises do not require you to leave home to do it but if you prefer working out outdoors its an option for you you can use the weights available in the gym. I also like to get a bottle of water ready to stay hydrated during my work out.

Have a great day! Stay healthy and hydrated!

Everyday Make Up Using Tartelette In Bloom Palette

I have been using this Tartelette In Bloom Palette for months now and I must say it is the holy grail for fans of neutral shades and gold. This shade of golds in the palette is perfect for inner highlights and all over the lids for a nice shimmery effect. 

The shades glide on smoothly and I love how it stays on the whole day with my Urban Decay eye primer. 

I usually do not apply false lashes or mascara I wanted a realistic representation of how I do my eye make up.

Non Comedogenic Skincare & Make Up for Clear Skin 2016

This are the products I used to create my non comedogenic look. If you have not you can watch my video here to see the products in action.

Some of this products are not labeled non comedogenic but it does not clog up my pores so I have been happy to use it.

I am using:

Vive Face Tonic in Beng Kuang
This toner is refreshing and light it comes in a nice fragrance too. I bought it from Batam and it is very inexpensive. The lemon version is also just as good.

ZA two way powder foundation in OC00
I have talked about it before here it is a lightweight foundation and I like to use it to set my make up. It gives it a nice matte finish and my skin stays oil free for a long time.

Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturiser for combination skin
Not too greasy for my skin and is not thick upon application. My skin can still breathe under this moisturiser the scent is not noticeable as well.

Elf Flawless Finish Foundation in porcelain 
Offers thick coverage and glides on rather smoothly when applied with a sponge. But I usually use my fingers and you can tell from the video you need to blend it out carefully. It is not as liquid like as I would like it to be but compared to the Revlon Colour Stay Foundation (you can see photos of how it looks like when applied here) I would say this is a good non clogging foundation.

Elf Warm Bronzer
Not too dramatic looking this bronzer gives my skin enough glow. I like to use the lighter shades to highlight my cheekbones for a subtle effect.

Clarins UV Plus Anti Pollution Sunscreen
I have been using this for months now and it is the best sun screen although it is on the pricier side. It is lightweight and spreads evenly on the skin. Provides excellent coverage and does not make me greasy. It also does not clog my pores which is a plus.

The Face Shop Concealer Dual Veil in V201
This is my favourite concealer if you have followed me in the past you would have seen me using a similar concealer before. I like that it combines both cream and liquid concealer in one. Great for travelling and multi purpose use. You can buy two shades darker and use it for a contouring stick too for precise application!
An additional product that I enjoy using is the Innisfree Volcanic Clay Mask. It helps to unclog the pores and makes the skin look fairer. So I use it on alternate weeks.

I hope you find this helpful.
