[Style] Floral Sweater~

Merry Christmas everyone!! :)

Hope you are all having a lovely day! This isn't going to be a particularly Christmassy post, just a quick update on what I've been hungering after so brace yourselves...

I absolutely lovelovelove this sweater, but it looks like it's no longer in production anymore, which sucks. I also really adore this one too:

If anyone knows where I can get either of these, please let me know~~

Recently I purchased this lovely floral sweater from China.
It took like, 6 weeks to arrive but I'm pretty happy with it, apart from the bottom of the sweater which has the distressed holey thing going for it. Looks kinda cool at first, but seriously annoying when the threads get caught by anything and rips - one of the ladders already looks like I did a number on it with a pair of scissors!

Here's a piccy of me taking it out for a test run:

I'm at a tea house in London called Yumcha, which has these amazing compact teapot/teacups - you can see how the teapot sits in the teacup in the background of the pic. Anyways, as I mentioned, this wasn't a particularly Christmassy post but oh well, I guess I have a lot of catching up to do here! *pats neglected blog*

Wishing you all a wonderful day~

Winter Skin Remedies


Merry Christmas Eve! I feel like I ought to make a new intro post now, having been away from blogging for so long.

Anyways, this post will be about my experiences with dry skin *cough* eczema *cough* in the winter, along with some remedies if any of you guys are unfortunate enough to suffer the same affliction.

Growing up, I was prescribed loads of different steroids and moisturisers, most of which didn't really do anything to soothe any flare ups. I tried Chinese herbal treatments, which tasted really nasty and seemed to work, but only for a short period of time since part of the problem was my lifestyle - I didn't take the problem seriously enough and kinda thought it would just go away on its own. Wrong.

It was only when I started to do my own research and to take an active role in sorting my own skin out that I've finally found some results.

One of the things I learned that hit me the hardest was that I had to say goodbye to most of the cosmetics and creams on the high street since most of them are scented and contain all sorts of irritating chemicals. Now, I check the ingredients of anything I buy and if it's a cream or a cleanser, I make sure it's fragrance free or is hypoallergenic. A few days ago, my mother and a family friend recommended Aveeno products, which are oatmeal based and have been very kind to my skin so far, so they get a huuuuge thumbs up from me!

In the case of prescriptions, I found that Diprobase and Epaderm have been the best ones so far. E45 actually made my skin worse, and Doublebase wasn't great either. I only recently learned that the reason why E45 didn't work is because it contains the chemical sodium laurel sulphate (SLS), which is a naughty irritant - explained here (not the most credible source of information out there I know but hey, a study is a study).

Knowing this now, I am more determined to go the natural route and to look into home remedies. So far, I have personal experience with: 

Argan oil~

Argan oil is good for your hair, your scalp, and also for your skin. It has a slightly nutty scent, and absorbs really quickly into your skin without leaving a greasy residue. I bought some in Morocco and can't recommend this enough, although it is very pricey in it's pure form. There has also been a considerable amount of research done on this oil, and a quick skim through reveals that there are loads of health benefits! (I didn't read any of the articles as they looked too intimidating! ^_^:;)

Coconut oil~

Coconut oil is another oil that I've quickly taken to, after scouring the net for folklore on skincare. Again, this is an oil that can be used on your hair and your skin, but it does leave a little bit of a greasy feel after application - although you will definitely smell most delicious! It also stores well, lasting up to two years due to it's stability. I bought my tub from Holland and Barrett, and I have to admit that it is pretty pricey, but you do get 16 ounces which lasts a very long time. I've been using it for a month now and my skin has never been as good as it is this winter.

Home remedies:

There are plenty of websites that offer home remedies for you to try out. Here are a few of them~

myhomeremedies probably has the most number of remedies on any website
care2.com has a few yummy looking scrub recipes
howstuffworks offers a general introduction and humorous comments

Finally, a tip from my dermatologist:

If you have dry skin/eczema on your arms/hands, a top tip that has worked wonders is to buy cotton gloves or stretchy bandages, cover the afflicted area with your moisturiser of choice and then put the glove or bandage on before you go to sleep. When you wake up, your skin should be softer and nicer! :)

Good luck this winter~~

[Style] Vintage with a black ribbon!

Hey there!!

I came across this image when doing a search for heels with ribbon laces, and liked the look so much I decided to give it a go myself!

Image source
White Retro Ring, Black Ribbon, Stradivarius White Top, H&M High Waisted Black Skirt, Embis Black Heels
OK, so I don't own a white retro ring, a Stradivarius white top, a H&M high waisted skirt or Embis black heels, but what I DO own is a black ribbon, a Primarni (Primark hehe) white top, a Moda Vera high waisted skirt and a pair of Clark ribbon heels, so here we go:

Sorry the quality is not great...I'm using my phone camera at the moment!
Hewwo :3
OK...after my exams I'll invest in a decent camera and retake these photos...
*dies of shame*
Well worn but well loved!
And the obligatory selca ᵔᴥᵔ
Hmm, I think the model pulled that outfit off better than I did, but nevertheless it was funfunfun to have a go! I've come to realisation that I can't go on for much longer using my phone as a camera...so if anyone has any decent camera recommendations, do let me know!

Until next time, lovelies! (✿◠‿◠)

An Interview with Glitters For Dinner


It's never been easy to sell clothes. Like with creative writing or the music industry, all of these markets are heavily saturated with aspiring young people trying to make it big. When boutiques know they are competing with the likes of fashion houses and high street stores, they have to find new ways to get noticed, to stand out from the crowd and boy can it be hard. But as we all know, the Internet can be a wonderful thing, and with the rise of social media, some stores have found it much more economical to scrap the traditional model of owning a physical store by moving everything online.

I recently had the pleasure of talking to Melissa, owner of Glitters For Dinner, a cute online boutique from Australia that's thirteen months old and operates exclusively through Facebook. Having started her store by herself, with no experience at all, she has come a long way. she has had to do everything from accounts to sourcing to brand building - in fact, she even models her own clothes!


Melissa Jo, modelling her Digital Sky Crop
Profile of an owner:

My name is Melissa Jo, I've always had a passion for fashion. I love music, Kate Moss and old Hollywood stars. I'm the mother of four beautiful cats, so when they aren't taking my time I'm blogging, reading fashion magazines or designing!

Glitters For Dinner

Sometimes, we spend ages trying to think of the perfect name for something, but at other times, it just falls into place without you even trying. When asked what the inspiration was behind the name Glitters For Dinner, Melissa says: "Have you ever come home from a shopping trip shaking with excitement? Just itching to model all the new good in front of a mirror? Well every shopping trip makes me feel like that! One day after a particular shopping trip, a friend of mine said, 'Now we've got glitter for dinner!' ...and the name just stuck!"

"GFD launched 13 months ago and we basically started from scratch. We had no prior knowledge of clothing businesses, although we've heard all the stories. We started by sourcing some amazing vintage places. I didn't realize I had an eye for vintage until after the clothes started selling. With a lot of self advertising, inviting different people to check our page out, a LOT of time and effort, we started growing a fan base."

Promotions have played a huge role in the success of GFD too. By holding giveaways with other already well established online brands, GFD have been able to tap into other fan bases and increase their online presence.

How I first heard about GFD!

Online versus High Street

Peter Pan Dress
You may think that opening a store online would be easier than operating one on the high street. For instance, you don't have to worry about rent, electricity bills, cleaning, or security. You don't have to put clothes back on the railing after customers have tried them on, and you don't have to worry about the layout of the store. In fact, an online store is a completely different experience. Normally, with a website, you'd still have to worry about layout, presentation and server fees, but if you are fine with sacrificing that for wider social access and a free webpage then Facebook is perfect. For Melissa, "The biggest difference is that, I feel, our Facebook store is a more personal experience. I personally speak to everyone of my customers as they were my friends. I message them and I am always in touch with them. Unlike other online stores, I take a personal interest in customers. As we keep growing, I will keep trying to be in touch with everyone!"

Melissa tells me that the most challenging thing about GFD was brand building and gaining loyal customers. "Being an online store, you have to work even harder get yourself out there. Unlike the use of a window display, or the simple presence of an actual store, I have to constantly promote GFD, and keep coming up with fresh new ideas to keep my 'audience'. It's just like entertaining a crowd!"


Quickfire Q&As

Galaxy Sleeve Baseball Tee
1. What do you love about your work?

I love the girls, I've become good friends with some of them. They are incredibly amazing and supportive. They allow me to do what I love and more importantly to love what I do. I feel so blessed to have these people in my life.

2. Can you tell me about a typical working day for you guys?

If we don't have buying plans or photo shoot at the studio, each day is completely different. But what we do almost everyday is get online and constantly promote the brand. Sharing new photos, comments etc. Responding to the emails that we get regularly, making sure our customers are happy!

Also 2 nights a week, I would go to bed really late, because I will be up all night doing my accounts, which is a very exhausting job. It's my least favourite part haha.

Luckily I have heaps of help from my boyfriend and my wonderful posting staff who are completely supportive of what I do. I actually feel like its more of a team effort now, than just me against the world!

3. I hear you are designing your own line of clothing; do you have any sneak peak photos?

It's been delayed for so long, we have a few patterns completed. One of them is the classic peter pan collared dress with a full skirt, I can't disclose anything else because things are constantly changing...however this design is one of my favourites!

We hand design the garments as well as select the fabric. Besides sewing, we get involved in so much, it's been an incredible learning experience.

Vintage Black Sleeveless White Collared Mini Dress
4. What do you think it takes for an online store to become successful?

I just think that you have to milk every moment. There are millions of competitors out there. You have to make sure you are ready. Also it's very important to keep up with news and current trends all the time. Education is the best way to get to know your customers!

5. Do you have any advice or tips for young people who want to start their own online store or fashion line?

My advice is to take time, don't rush through the process. Do not expect overnight success, because it never happens. Also it's so important to stick with things even when it seems like nothing is happening. Be a decent human being and having a loving attitude towards your customers. And for Pete's sake get a decent camera. People come to you for the clothes, NOT for the artistic image!

6. And finally, who do you look up to in the fashion world?

Carrie Bradshaw she's my absolute favourite. She's fictional but I don't care!


Thank you so much Melissa for taking the time out of your busy schedule to give us an insight into your life. If you'd like to visit her store, then follow the links:

[Review] Cellnique D'Sensi Calming and Hydrating Cream

Hey guys, sorry for the long absence ~ this review is way way overdue, so I pledge to make it both in depth and full of lovely photos! :)

Today I will be reviewing the D'Sensi Calming and Hydrating Cream by Cellnique, a skin care company based in Malaysia and Singapore.

Let me begin by giving you a quick overview of my skin type. I have sensitive skin that suffers from redness if I come into contact with an irritant, and it can get very dry too, especially around my neck and lower chin so I need to moisturise it very often. Of course, my T zone also gets oily in the summer but my skin is best described as sensitive rather than combination since I grew up with mild eczema.

A sophisticated dual-action moisturizer with extraordinary soothing and hydrating properties. Multi-active Desensitizing Complex and Yeast Extract are infused to neutralize outbreaks of redness; provides lasting relief to enraged skin by raising skin tolerance threshold. Its exceptionally high concentration of Hyaluronic Acid and Trehalose magnifies skin hydration and reinforces skin protection barrier.

• Diminish symptoms of skin sensitivity: redness, burning, stinging, tightness, tingling, itching and flaking.
• Skin is less reactive to external aggressions and different stimuli or irritants.
• Excellent soothing effect to reduce the discomfort and itching sensations.
• Deliver long hours continuous moisturization
• Skin texture becomes more youthful, sensuously smooth and supple!

RRP US $57.00

Cellnique is a skincare company that specialises in dealing with problem skin ~ on the website, you can find out information about the following skin issues: acne, aging, congestion, dehydration, discoloration, open pores, sensitivity and scarring. As such, it is easy to go through the pages to find the treatment that best suits your skin type ~ this can be done via the menu too on the main page. I find their website very easy to navigate and was impressed with the presentation of the products and the detail on each product page.

The lovely Livia from Cellnique was kind enough to send me this product for review so all views expressed from here on are my own and unbiased! ^^


The packaging of the product is minimalist and professional looking, going for the appeal of functionality rather than being colourful and pretty. I was hoping for a dispenser rather than a jar since I believe dispensers to be more hygienic but as jars are the norm for these types of creams it was only a minor quibble. Also, I think the English grammar could be improved a little bit on the descriptive paragraph of the packaging...

This cream uses much fewer ingredients than the last cream I reviewed, appears to contain no metals, and there are a lot of listed ingredients that are natural extracts too, so this cream should be kind to sensitive skin ~ especially if it is free from artificial colourants, alcohols and fragrances as the description says.

The fragrance is light and refreshing with a subtle hint of cucumber. It's sweet and slightly floral ~ a pretty generic and safe scent! In the photo below, you can see that the colour of the cream is a very pale apple green, and the consistency is thick and gel like. It is cool to the touch, and upon application, I could feel the gel cooling and refreshing my skin. There is a slight sticky residue, which is quickly absorbed, leaving no greasiness.

I found that my skin felt soft and plump, especially on my cheeks which are now years younger! This cream was kind to even the most sensitive parts of my face ~ my neck and lower chin, but they did not react to the cream which is a major plus! In addition, the cream successfully moisturises and soothes my dry areas, making them appear calmer and less visible. So in essence, this product and I will get on very well. In fact, I've been using it for a few weeks now, and my skin has not complained in any way whatsoever.

However, at $57.00 this is definitely not student budget material! It's one of the higher end creams and aimed at working women in their twenties onwards so if you are on a tighter budget then I would not recommend this product for you. However, I do like this cream a lot, even more so than the No7 Beautiful Skin, so it is a shame about the price!

Rating: 3.5/5 (one star knocked off for the price!)

P.S. My thanks again go out to Livia, who so kindly sent me this product to review.

7 Deadly Beauty Sins

Hey guys!

I came across this from Yuk-Lui's blog and it looked kinda fun so here we go!

1. GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?
2. WRATH: What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with? What product has been the hardest to get?
3. GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?
4. SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?
5. PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?
6. LUST: What product did you lust after before you bought it?
7. ENVY: What items would you most like to receive as a gift?


1. At first I was going to say my Rimmel Kohl Eyeliner, but on second thoughts, my most inexpensive beauty products are probably the nail polishes I bought when I was travelling in Bulgaria. Seriously, they retailed for like, the price of a bag of crisps. Totally wish I'd bought more now!

My most expensive beauty item would have to be my HerStyler hair curler...although I haven't used it in over a year now since I've been wearing shorter hair styles! :(

2. Mascara mascara mascara!! The hateful substance refuses to co-operate with my non-existent lashes ~ I'm sure I'm not the only one who must feel this way. As for the hardest products to get, I guess BB Creams since the decent ones are manufactured in Asia and I believe the online price and shipping is too huge for my student debt to cover.

3. My most delicious product is my Narcisso Rodriguez perfume ~ it's my signature scent, but get this, I recently found out that I'm allergic to cinnamyl alcohol, which just happens to be one of the ingredients used in the perfume! HMMM...

4. I neglect to cleanse, simply because I am not in the habit of cleansing my facial skin that often. My skin has always been pretty good in terms of dirt/oils/spots, and since I haven't needed to cleanse it in the past, I don't feel the urge to incorporate it into my daily routine.

5. Without a doubt, it has to be eyeliner. Eyeliner is the one beauty product that totally transforms my look from sleepy eyes into a fully alert. Plus it adds a bit of intensity to my look. In terms of make up, I can happily go out with just eyeliner on, as I do think that less is more.

6. I spent a few years lusting after the Narcisso Rodriguez perfume before my parents got me it for Christmas two years ago:

7. I'd love to receive an Urban Decay palette, but one can dream... ^^


Feel free to post your answers in comments or on your blog, and if you do so, please link me to them so I can read! :D

[OOTD] My Orange Dress

So, last night I went to a grad house party, and the theme was to wear bright colours to warm up the winter. Since I hadn't planned on anything fun this term, it was a bit of a struggle to find something that could work in my warddrobe, but I hope that the following outfit embodied the theme:

Orange Jane Norman dress
Pink cardigan from Terminal D

I actually really like this combination!

A close up of my face... >_<
I'm only wearing eyeliner and some L'Oreal Infaillable Goldmine eyeshadow.
I'd like to learn how to do more than just eyeshadow and liner...!

The camera cut out my shoes! :(

The radiator was too warm so I couldn't sit on it for too long!

Shoes <3

I'm actually really pleased with this combination as I never thought pink/purple and orange could go together. Also, I think the night went really well too! I met lots of new people and finally got to hang out with my lovely lab mates outside of the department! :)

[OOTD] Valentine Outfit

Hey there! Happy Valentine's Day for those of you that celebrate it! ^_^

Today, I went to my college's Formal Hall, and since it was a formal occasion, I got to dress up! If you want to see photos from it, then check out my diary post, but anyhow, here is my outfit:

With college gown, and without...

I'm wearing the Fatal Dress by Wolford, which is an "opaque, seamless tube for an individual style. Can be worn as a skirt, top or dress. Sensually soft, made of exclusive Velvet material." I came across this at the Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet during my summer internship in Liverpool, and fell in love with it straight away. Luckily, the dress was 33% discounted at the Outlet! :)

You can do a lot of cool stuff with this dress:

But obviously this video is there to try to get you to buy more than one colour... T_T

If you only have one colour, then your options are limited, but so far, I've been able to turn this into a ruched mini dress, a respectable length dress, a mini skirt, and a pencil skirt. Maybe I'll do a showcase post in the future? ^_^

Anyway, this is the first time that I wore my Albano heels out, and they definitely got a lot of attention!

I kinda ran out of time and also don't actually own/use any foundation/BB Cream so kept my face bare but moisturised. I curled my eyelashes, added eyeliner, a flick of Dior's Diorshow Waterproof and a pair of false lashes from the Eylure Natural range. For the eyeshadow, I just used L'Oreal's Infaillable 027 Goldmine and left my lips blank. None of that really shows in this photo, since it was taken at the end of the night (and I have huge shadows under my eyes >_<) so oh well...!

Anyway, goodnight, and as always, comments = love love! :)

[OOTD] Snow Day

Hey there, remember when I told you about the shorts and boots that I bought a few posts ago? Well, I finally got a chance to wear them today, and guess what? I teamed them up with each other!

Song of the day: This Is War by MBLAQ (a little depressing but pretty beautiful ^^)

If you've read my diary post, then you will know that today it was a super snowy day in Cambridge, and that I had a lunch date with some friends! I felt like it would be nice to wear a shirt that I'd bought over Christmas and to dress it down with the shorts and boots. Here's what the overall outfit looks like:

Customary mirror shot.

Necklace: Pearls from China
Tank top: Primark
Shorts: Bay
Boots: Office

Eeek, didn't realise how creased the shirt was!

You can see the detail of the shorts better here. The boots have a four inch heel, and were 17% of the original price! Thank you January sales!

My outerwear: Coat from China
Accessories: As seen here

I'll do a post soon about the coat that I bought - it's pretty awesome as it's a 2 in 1 in that you can remove the fur lining and wear that as a separate jacket! :D

I was going to post about the coat earlier but I broke my camera whilst taking some photos of the coat... :(

Anyway, that's all for now! If you have any comments or critiques then do let me know! ^^

[Review] No7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream for Dry / Very Dry Skin

Oooh lah lah, my first review! ^^
No7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream for Dry / Very Dry Skin gives rich, intensive hydration to instantly nourish, energise and smooth for flawless make-up application.

No7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream is the second and final step to complete your Beautiful Skin routine, through perfect moisturisation. With three formulations to suit every skin type, Beautiful Skin Day Creams lavish skin with TLC to hydrate, energise and balance.

With the added protective power of SPF15 and 5★UVA technology, the multitasking moisturisers help skin fight the harmful effects of the sun and keep you looking as young as possible. There’s also a range of night creams for every skin type, too, for truly tailored skin nutrition 24 hours a day.

RRP £12.50


The packaging was a simple design which looked like it was going for functionality rather than something that would look pretty on your shelf. I like the pastel colours on the box and product jar.

The consistency of the cream was medium: not too thick, but not runny either. Personally, I prefer my creams with a heavier consistency as I tend to associate that with a higher emollient content and with a higher degree of luxury. There was also a slight floral fragrance, but nothing too overpowering.

Upon application, the cream felt light, non greasy and was quickly absorbed by my skin. My skin felt softer, smoother and even glowed, but there were still a few dry patches on my lower face that meant I had to re-apply the cream two or three times (and even added my own moisturiser on top). My cheeks and upwards are less dry than my lower face so one application of the cream was enough.

I have been using this for the last couple of days! It's softening effects survive the strong air conditioning unit in our lab, lasting until the afternoon and only then do I feel as though I need to re-moisturise. Can't test the SPF 15 effects right now since it's going to be a looong time before we get any sunshine here! -_-"

Finally, in terms of price, at £12.50 this is one of the more expensive high street day creams on the market. Boots give out £5 vouchers for their No 7 range every now and then, so I got mine with one of those! ^_^

Rating: 3.5/5

[Haul] Boots, shorts, and super sensitive skincare

This is going to be an uber post of the things that I have bought in the last few days, starting with Friday when I came across a really cute pair of shorts from Bay that were sitting in a thrift store just waiting for me to buy them:

I've been trying out a few looks with them, and so far I really love wearing them with a white tank top, black leggings, heeled boots and long necklace ~ when I get a new camera I'll try to take a few outfit photos. Even though they are out of season, I've been wanting a striped pair like them for ages now so could not resist!

Next up is a pair of heeled winter boots that I got in the Office sale today. If you haven't been there already then you are definitely missing out since they had a sale where their flats and heels were £12 or less! Unfortunately this sale ended today but the salespeople told me that you will be able to find them online.

Now, onto the cosmetics:

Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips (to get rid of blackheads)
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (a cleanser for super dry skin)
Nivea Daily Essentials Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes
No. 7 Beautiful Skin Day Cream (for dry or very dry skin)
MUA Makeup Academy Professional Eye Primer

I never used to think much about taking care of the skin on my face until I started to read beauty blogs ~ my skin was always super dry but moisturiser and sleep would usually do the trick. I figured that right now, things were fine so why bother to put effort in? But since prevention is better than cure, I've now decided to take an active interest in the maintenance of my skin, so will hopefully be doing a few reviews on some of the products that I've purchased, especially the dry skin products since I haven't seen that many skin care reviews that are for people with extra dry skin.

The lady that I spoke to at Boots was also kind enough to give me some free samples of a skin recovery cream from French company Avene:

Sorry about the slightly blurry photo!

Again, these are targeted towards super sensitive and dry skin, and are used as moisturisers after cleansing. Can't wait to try them out! :D

[Fashion] Dragon Dress!

This is going to be a series of posts in which I rave about an outfit that I really like! Whether or not I'd actually wear it is another question though...

Song of the day: Warrior by B.A.P. I am so addicted to this song right now!!

So without further ado, let me present to you Wang Luodan and her outfit at the 2012 CCTV Spring Festival Gala. I can't get over how much I love this!

Wow, that piece of arm bling is so freaking HOT!!

Although that arm is pretty much useless now other than as decoration.

Not so sure about the plastic strap but other than that, this is such a beautiful shoe! ^^

Yeah, I don't think you'd be able to move your arm with that on...

Erm, a more Photoshopped version of the first pic?

Verdict: I'd never wear it, because firstly, I'm not tall or skinny enough, secondly, my skin isn't nice enough, and thirdly, because I think that you may as well give up on the use of one arm for the duration of time that you have that badass blingery floating on it which makes me think that maybe this outfit really was just meant to be looked at, rather than worn. But nevertheless, this is still absolutely stunning and if I could pull it off, then I would definitely (metaphorically...) sell my arm to be able to wear that hehe.

Anyways, that's all for now! I do have a review for the MUJI eyelash curler that I bought a few weeks ago, and a coat that I want to show you but my camera broke last night so I can't take any photos! *sniff*
