Greek Goddess for Halloween~
At first,I wanted to be a vampire.
But wanted all bloody and gore,but I didn't have the right makeup with me.
So I settled for this:)
Feeling much better now and I'll be all well tomorrow.

I've said I'll show you all my vintage collection of clothes.
And this is one I bought 3 years back for prom.
Bought it from those expensive vintage stores.
But when I saw this,I knew I had to keep it:)

Finally it got worn out today again.
Staying home today though,not going out.
Halloween is not a huge thing here,but knew I still wanted to dress up.

Had fun today with my sister helping with the photos.
And I posted up a lot of them,was so hard to scale them down.
But I hope its okay with you all,not boring you. heeee

Please eat more candies and caramel apples for me.
Or eyeball cupcakes too!
Happy Halloween to everyone ~

Giveaway winner will be announced tomorrow on Sunday.

Sunlight shines through the scattered window glass

edit:I just realized that this is kind of a repeat from one of my previous post. Guessed this is done slightly different here. It's one of my favorite looks of all

Shirt:ralph lauren mens shirt,vintage
Skirt:same one as previous,vintage
Burgundy red t-strap heels:Clarks
Specs:online store
Hair clip,handmade,

I cooked pasta(planned for lunch at work actually)

Sorry about the pale face and no makeup. Yikes !

I'm still sick today.
Went to the doctor's,waited for over an hour.
But its good,as I was given 2 days of rest:)

And I might be a little slow in visiting your blogs.
As typing on the laptop drains away my energy too.
Thanks to everyone for your well wishes!
Big kiss to you all.

I've promised an outfit but I'm really not well to grab clothes and photograph them.
So I leave you here with an outfit back awhile.

But this is one of my favorite outfits.
And sadly I only have one photo of this.
Promised a proper outfit post tomorrow.

Swaps are such a fun thing for me to do nowadays.
Be it clothes,accessories,shoes etc.
Its always fun to receive them and to interact with bloggers from everywhere.
So I'm opening up the doors to anyone who wants to do a swap with me.

I do have some clothes and maybe shoes that are up for swaps.
I know I could actually sell them and earn some extra cash
but swaps are more fun,that's for sure !

And I'm deciding now on a vampire or a greek goddess for Halloween.

Blog giveaway is ending tomorrow ! So don't miss it:)

Beautiful sunset but lost of its warmth now

I've gotten sick today,down with flu and fever.
Outfits will resume tomorrow.

(from top left:YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick in #2,Laura Mercier Illuminating tinted moisturizer in Warm Radiance,Julie Hewett Cheek and Lip shine in Peachie,NARS blush in Orgasm or Deep Throat,Laura Mercier lip stain in English Rose )

These are the few makeup products
that I've been wanting to try so badly!
Heard so much reviews on them,be it youtube or websites.

But some can't be bought here in Singapore.
So I need to save money to buy all of these.

YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick:This one is a must buy! Even though its expensive,the color comes out so beautifully and that its not too drying as well.

Laura Mercier Illuminating tinted moisturizer:I want to do dewy makeup from now on. And I know that this is going to be the 1st step.

Julie Hewett Cheek and Lip shine:Love love any product that can be used in more than one way. For this,its a worth buying product.

NARS blush:I love love the 2 colors stated above. Loads of reviews on them(despite their funny names),I adore shimmery blush and been wanting to have them. But sadly,its not found here.

Laura Mercier lip stain:lip stains or lipstick ? I love both,but for something quick and go. I love this and Laura Mercier is being a hot fave of mine to own.

Rest time for me now :)

This week so far has been alright.
I'm running low on cash now.
But due to some things I forgot to do,I didn't make my lunch box for 2days.
So from tomorrow onwards,I'm making my own packed lunch to work.

It will go on till I have my paycheck into my bank account.
Which is like 2 weeks away:)
I'll take photos of what's in my lunch and show you all.
Just really easy and simple fare which fills my tummy.

It goes here for my Le Sac dress I got from American Apparel.

Its a really comfortable and beautiful piece.
But I just don't seem to reach for it every time.
I should now more,don't want to hide such a lovely dress:)

Borrowed my mom's denim jacket today.
I love it that it fits so perfectly and its not loose or oversized.
Work was nothing much today.
But I was really excited to get home today.
Special HUGE shoutout to Joelyne of The Sydney Girl:)

Telling yourself that eye is not in the prize

I was abit on the lazy side today.
So I didn't take an outfit post,but a vlog !!
Really hope you all enjoy:)
I did a video of what I carry in my bag on a daily basis.

Realised that the sound goes faster then my mouth.
And I don't know how to fix that.
So it doesn't really match,but the vlog still works fine.

If you all want to do this too,I want to see yours too!
Let me know.

More outfits during the weekend and I'll be replying to all your blog awards.
I'm always so so slow on this,my apologies:)

Have a great weekend everyone ~

Running in the fields with my dreamcatcher in mid day

Knitted sweater top:thrifted,vintage
Leggings:random store in town
Necklace/accessories:Flea market and all else random
Sequined headband:won in giveaway,gla.MAR.ous
Boots:vintage,Oppt shop in town

Thanks Valerie for the photos!

Sorry about the slightly dark photos.
Sister was trying something different.
And my fringe was so flat then it covered my eyes.
I'm eyeless today!

What's next being a hippie for me?
Red Indian/Native American culture really interests me so much.
Guess that's what inspired what I wore today.
And I've ever thought of getting a tattoo about it.

These boots are the only boots I own now.
But they always pair nicely with many outfits I wear.
And it was quite a steal for these,only about usd$15 !

This week has passed so fast and tomorrow is Friday.
Love love the weekends and I know I've said this countless times.
Time to unwind and relax.
Any suggestions for the weekend ?

I'm so excited about this !
Thanks so so much to Maria of Lulu Letty for featuring me as Blogger of the week!
I'm really so honored and shocked then happy and you're the sweetest person I know:)
She also does have amazing style.
You can head down to her blog and read on the interview.

Plus,thanks so much to Betsey J and ThingsIlove for the feature too.
On the beautiful 'What's in my bag' tote
