[Inspiration] Photographer Crush | Fiona Quinn from New Zealand

New Zealand is a perfect canvas for great photography and this time around, our crush brought us exactly there, all the way to Auckland, New Zealand where this photographer, Fiona Quinn captures her beautiful editorial spreads for magazines like M2 Women's Magazine, Remix (just to name a few) and shoots for lookbooks, advertisements, campaigns, among others. We especially love her clean, easy and detailed studio captures of makeup and beauty shots for beauty brands. The makeup looks are vivid and pop right out in front of you. 

We love some of the regal, haunting beauty or a little experimental moody looks of the visuals done by Fiona as well. They look really enticing and seem to lure you into that fantasy world, momentarily. A great escapade, nonetheless. We are pretty sure there will be more exciting ones to come out of her. 

Let's go to the land of Lord of the Rings and see more, shall we?

[Inspiration] Flying Solo: Hailey Clauson By Gemma Booth For Marie Claire October 2014

Now this could be interesting! Wearing your earrings solo instead of a pair? We never really thought of it, perhaps we should give this a try one fine day (doubt that we have got the guts, but hey, what's life without a little crazy adventure, right?!) 

Have any of you done it before? 

We sure have not...

The Latest From Burberry Fragrance: My Burberry

"My Burberry
is the true embodiment of our brand in scent, in design and in attitude
A fragrance that takes its lead from the iconic Burberry trench
has to be outstanding in every way"

Christopher Bailey, Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer, Burberry

Walking in the London garden of white roses and sweet pea, I brush my fingers gingerly across the petals, the afternoon rain has just subsided, the water droplets glide innocently onto the grass that greets them, with a warm welcome. The clouds have dispersed to reveal the glorious sun. The scent in the air, is moist and damp, but fresh with the most beautiful clean and elegant smell of roses and sweet pea. This is the only scent I vividly remember, that very afternoon. I remember wrapping myself tightly, hugging my Burberry trench, and walking across the street, to my love who is already waiting. He brushes the little droplets off my trench coat, gives me a kiss on the cheek and smiles, whispering into my ears, "You smell deliciously lovely, my darling!" That was indeed, my perfect afternoon walk in the light afternoon rain. 
Now, here comes the sun! How magical.

Dreaming of A White Muted Kind of Saturday

Our habitat is like a vast empty space in the whole wide universe, until we decide to fill it with things that we love. We are creature of habit, and more so, one that loves to accumulate things. But what if the things we acquire in our life time, eventually become more meaningful to us, or conversely, become meaningless to us, once we begin to detach ourselves from them? 

We are not making sense, are we? 

Saturday seems to have this sort of effect on us ... always making us think a little more, ponder a little more, and wonder what life is all about after all. Is it the things that we own because we love them? or it is the things that we collect to subconscious define who we are as a person?  But things themselves have no meaning until we attach a meaning to it, no? Like that special locket or bracelet that is handed down to you as an heirloom... perhaps that piece of ornament you picked up during one of your travel trips abroad?

But one thing is for sure

Suit Up And Look Awesome For Fall With Bonobos

Nothing says a gentleman better than a perfectly fitted and comfortable suit. Think SUITS the TV series and the images of "Mike" and "Harvey", the two always-perfectly-suited-up suave men in suits from that hit series immediately pop into our head! Ooohhh, love that series, by the way. We LOVE men in suits, the well-dressed ones, of course and this fall is looking really enticing with the latest Fall 2014 Men's Suits Collection by Bonobos. (here for more)

The world of men is full of a little mystery here and there when it comes to fashion (some men may not even have the slightest clue, or even be bothered *_^) yet it can be very simple and straightforward, if one knows where to look to dress up smart, to fit different occasions and purposes. One thing is for sure, style, comfort and fit, we feel, for men who love to suit up, do play an important part.

Bonobos believes in style should not be complicated and it is all about finding and knowing yourself and what fits. Bonobos offers well-crafted and great fitting clothing for men, and they don't just stop there, In fact, they are known for their Guideshop concept (personalized shopping experience, that try-it-on-before-you-buy approach) and super Ninjas customer service representatives to help you along the way! (no joke *_^). 

Why Mick Jagger? You will see...

[Inspiration] Arizona Muse by David Bellemere for Porter Magazine #4 Fall 2014

How you ever had that feeling that strong women are rather very appealing and hypnotic? Well, at least those who have a strong makeup look on? We find that element in this editorial from Porter Magazine #4, featuring the model, Arizona Muse by David Belle yet it also brings out the soft feminine side of the woman, right?

Glowing In The Sun

There is something very alluring about the pictures taken, perhaps it is the make up done by Lindsey Warren, that soft wash of cheeks and lips, yet, at times radiantly golden glow complexion in reflection under the sunlight, the eyes with the little eyeliner and coats of black mascara that accentuate the whole eye-look, the eyebrows are so primly groomed and of course, that beautiful flowiness of the hair looking all effortless by Maxime Mace. Could it also be the skillful lens of David Belle?

[Inspiration] The Fun of Phone Casing

As we were strolling around at Sunway Pyramid few days back after a long day seminar, we chanced upon a pretty interesting small little outlet at Asian Avenue, where one could find all sorts of variety of cute little things and fashion wardrobe (and food stalls), this particular outlet is called Facttor: 

What caught our eyes there were the custom-designed iPhone casings that one can either purchase off the shelf or have them make your own ones with your favorite family pictures and what not! How fun is that?

We spotted a few of our favorites, which include the superheroes Batman versions and the Captain America one! Aren't they just cool? In fact, we came back and did some research and found more lovely iPhone casings on IG. These ones are more fashionably feminine and stylish too *_^

Come, let's check out more, shall we? Just for the fun of it, since today is Saturday *_^

Mood Inspiration | Tuesday Raining Blue

Today is quite a day.
It's been raining for almost big part of today
we felt a little BLUE...
that denim blue that seems to creep ever so silently into our mind
we could not help but to be pulled into this world...

Let's take a break and have a cup of tea, and think of all things blue, shall we?

The one good thing about denim or jeans is that one can easily dress down for a casual weekend out, or one can even dress up a denim look with heels and accessories, it's all up to your mood and style for the day.
