Chanel just released their latest commercial for the new Gabrielle bag, and it is featuring none other than Pharrell Williams. I'm a huge fan of Pharrell, and I lover his style and vibe that he adds to any outfit. Needless to say, he is truly an icon which is why I was so excited to see the huge fashion house Chanel team up with him to produce this video. Pharrell is also the first ever male to model one of the fashion houses' bags, so that is something to add to the history books. He's previously modelled alongside Cara Delevigne in a campaign for the iconic fashion house, and has really become a face for Chanel. This combination is one that I'm living for, and I can't wait to see the future collaborations between the two.

If you haven't heard of Coachella, you've been living under a rock. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, more commonly known as Coachella, is a huge festival that takes place over two weekends during spring. The festival started in 1999, and has grown immensely during the past few years. Not only does Coachella offer a wide range of music, with everything from rock, indie, EDM, and Hip Hop, but it also attracts artists and bands from all over the world. This year the festival was headlined by some of the biggest names in music, including Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar and Radiohead, but also featured several smaller and upcoming artists. Needless to say, Coachella has something to offer for everyone.

This weekend was the opening of the festival 2017, and since this festival attracts celebrities and fashionistas from across the globe, it also offers some great street style snaps. Coachella has truly become the place to be, and has turned into one of the biggest festivals in the world. In the past, festival style has been primarily boho chic, but what I love the most is that the festival has become a melting pot of styles. I've put together a few of my favourite street style snaps from weekend 1 of Coachella, featuring a handful of different styles.

Going to Coachella is at the top of my bucket list because of the great music and style, and I would love to visit the festival in the near future. Let me know in the comments what your favourite festival look was, and what you would wear if you were to go! x

Outfits

( Shoes - Yeezy 350 Boost V2 / Knitted Top - Yeezy Season 3 / Leather jacket - H&M / Jeans - Monki / Sunglasses - Gentlemonster / Backpack - Gucci / Fishnets - Calzedonia )

Our first day in New York was nothing short of perfect. The sun was shining throughout the day, and I ended up having to take my jacket off after only a couple hours. I expected it to be much colder, and ended up dressing too warm. As always I decided to wear all black. I absolutely love the knitted top I'm wearing from the Yeezy season 3 collection, and it really makes this outfit special. Since we were walking around all day I wore a comfortable pair of sneakers, threw on some sunglasses and I was ready to hit the town. I also ended up doing some shopping, but I will show that in another post!

Tomorrow we will keep exploring Manhattan, and hopefully check out some more cool stores.

My favourite trend as spring approaches is socks. That may sound a bit vague, but I love how socks can change an outfit completely. Whether it is a simple pair of white socks or rainbow sequinned socks, they add character and make an outfit intriguing and unique. What I love the most about this trend is that there are no limits! You can pair socks with heels, loafers, your favourite sneakers, any shoe you want, and it won't fail.

I have a lot of funky socks that I've bought during the years, and if you're looking for places to find fun and interesting socks I would recommend checking out Monki , HappySocks , TopShop , and your favourite boutiques. There are so many different colours, patterns and styles out there so go crazy!

What will you wear your socks with this spring? Let me know in the comments below!

Kanye West released his highly anticipated Calabasas collection yesterday on March 29th, and it sold out in FIVE minutes on Yeezysupply.com. Yes, you read that right. By now you can't have missed the huge impact Kanye West is having in the fashion industry, causing chaos every single time something new drops from any of his collections. I'm a huge fan of Kanye, and I am really enjoying his approach to fashion and the industry itself. I own a few pieces from several of his Yeezy Season collections, as well as a few pieces of his tour merch, and when I first saw Kanye himself wearing this new Calabasas collection I loved it. It is definitely a very simple collection, with a limited colour palette, but definitely fits the aesthetic that Kanye has developed.

Kanye has been seen wearing multiple other pieces branded "Calabasas" so maybe we are in for another release in the near future? So far the new Calabasas YEEZY Powerphase sneakers have gained a lot of hype, and many have commented on the similarity the new shoe has to the Reebok classics. Personally, I don't mind the similarity, and for the price of $120 USD I think the Powerphase sneaker is definitely worth it. Although this might seem like a high price to pay, the Yeezy 350 boosts retail for $215, and re-sell for almost three times the price. It remains to see how the Powephase sneaker develops in the sneaker world.

Beauty
STEP 1: Prime and Cover

I always use the Chanel Hydra Beauty Flash Primer before putting my foundation on. It creates a really natural glow and makes your foundation stay on all day! I then use my trusty BeautyBlender with my Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser in the shade "Sand". This is definitely a light coverage, but it creates such a beautiful glow and is incredibly light on the skin. It is my personal favourite!

STEP 2: Conceal, Conceal, Conceal!

I have pretty good skin, and I don't get that much redness or blemishes that need a lot of coverage. One thing I struggle with is eye-bags, and I've found that the Maybelline Age-Rewind Concealer does a great job of covering them when I'm in a hurry. Mine is in the shade "Light/Pale". You should always use concealer one or two shades lighter than your foundation. That way your concealer won't just cover your imperfections, it will also help to give your face some dimension.

STEP 3: Set it 

To prevent creasing and keep my concealer perfect all day I use the Laura Mercier Translucent setting powder. This is a product that I swear by, and will continue to use forever. I take a little powder on my BeautyBlender and dab it in the same areas where I applied concealer.

STEP 4: Lashes & Brows

Perhaps the most important step: lashes & brows. For my eyebrows I use the Chanel eyebrow pencil No.40, and for lashes the Diorshow Iconic Mascara. I've been using these two products for about 2 years, and will continue using them for a long time because of how well they work for me. I love products that I end up re-purchasing, especially when they seem to never fail me.

STEP 5: Bronze, Blush, Highlight!

I recently got the Laura Mercier Master Class Second Edition palette, and I've used the bronzer, blush and highlight that it comes with ever since. I love adding a lot of highlighter and bronzer to create a lot of dimension. I've always had a hard time with blush because I find that it easily becomes very apparent, and I prefer a subtle hint of blush rather than a popping pink. Recently I've experimented with blush more and more, and I'm starting to love it!


STEP 6: Slay all day 

Throw on some lipgloss and setting spray and you're ready to go! I'm using a gloss from Buxom and setting spray from Urban Decay to finish off my look, and then I'm good to go for the rest of the day! This is such a simple look that takes me about 5-10 minutes to do when I'm rushing out in the morning. This is probably the easiest look ever, but it definitely makes me feel great and confident every day.

This song went viral after being performed by an accapella group at the Women's March on Washington. You can watch the original video HERE

When I first watched the video of this song, I cried. I cried because it was powerful, beautiful and empowering in all ways, and seeing women from different states rehearse a song online and then come together to perform it to spread such an important message is incredible to me. I just came across this video where they have recorded the original song with a huge choir, and I had to share it. I think it is so important to support women all over the world, and I know we still have a long way to go before gender equality is reached, but small things like this song makes me hope that we can get there soon. I could write about this all day, but I'll leave it for now. Don't miss this video.

Movies

( Image 1 / 2 / 3 /4 /5 / 6 )

I've always loved going to the movies. There's something about sitting in the dark, cozy with some popcorn, and not knowing what to expect out of the movie you're about to see. Recently there have been a lot great movies playing here in Hong Kong, and I've been in and out of the cinema so many times during the past month. I've rounded up 3 of my absolute favourites, and if you get the chance to watch them, PLEASE do!

1. Hidden Figures

I can't even express how much I loved this film. I cried multiple times throughout the movie, and couldn't stop talking about it for days afterwards. The movie is about a team of African-American female mathematicians (Played by Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe) who worked as "computers" at NASA during the U.S. space program. The film is based on a true story, and tackles the extreme racial segregation that black people, and women, experienced during this time. The soundtrack is made by famous musician Pharrell Williams and is also absolutely amazing. I can go as far as to say that this might actually be my all-time favourite movie.

2. Hacksaw Ridge

Also based on a true story, Hacksaw Ridge is a film about WWII American Army Medic Desmond Doss (Played by Andrew Garfield) who refused to carry arms during his time in the army. The story follows the story of Desmond and all the obstacles he had to face from all the other soldiers and his commanders in the army because of his decision. Desmond T. Doss later went on to receive the Medal of Honour for his bravery, and became the first man to receive it without firing a single shot. I'm usually not too keen on watching war movies, but this was truly something else. Not only does it deal with the horrors of war, but also belief, hope and love. Andrew Garfield is an amazing actor and really nails this role. Definitely a movie to watch!

3. Logan

If you know me you'll know that I absolutely love Marvel movies, and I've seen every single one of their movies and TV shows. The X-Men series haven't been my favourite, but I've always loved watching them regardless. When I read that "Logan" would be the last movie that Hugh Jackman would do as Wolverine my heart dropped. He's been amazing in the role, and it is impossible to imagine anyone else playing him. This movie is based in the near future, I believe the year 2028, and Logan and Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) are the only mutants left. The movie follows the sick and old Logan, caring for Professor X, but after finding a girl with similar powers to his own, he's given the task of getting her to safety. This movie was rated R, and I didn't expect a lot of violence, but the movie was actually quite dark and very brutal. A lot of violence and a lot of blood and gore in true Wolverine fashion. I loved this movie, and it was the perfect way to end the Wolverine series. The cinematography and feel of the movie were also gorgeous, and overall a stunning performance that you can't miss!
