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!

One of my latest street style inspirations is Sofia Richie. I love the way she adds an edgy vibe to a very relaxed outfit, and how she mixes high fashion, luxury brands like Gucci with simple denim and sweats. She has definitely become a fashion icon during the past year, and I love looking to her to find a simple, yet exciting outfit.

Sofia Richie is the 18 year old daughter of music legend Lionel Richie, and is often seen hanging out with Kylie Jenner and her famous squad. She's a model and influencer, and despite being so young, she's building up her image and is becoming a regular both on and off the runway. She is without a doubt someone to watch, and I will definitely be keeping an eye on her for more inspiration and eye-catching outfits. If you want to do the same, you can find her Instagram HERE !

Fashion, Inspiration

It is late at night and I've once again found myself in front of the computer, endlessly scrolling through online shops like Net-a-Porter and Mytheresa looking for outfit inspiration and beautiful clothes. I decided to put together four different outfit ideas that my browsing session fuelled, all aligning with my own personal style and aesthetic. I realised that all outfits had a lot of black colour, but since I mostly wear black I feel as if it is a quite accurate reflection of me and my style.

Which outfit is your favourite? Let me know in the comments.

( Shirt - Kanye West Saint Pablo Tour Merchandise / Shoes - Common Projects x Lane Crawford)

A few weeks ago I had the chance to explore the coolest location I've been to in Hong Kong so far, and managed to snap some pretty sick photos as well. These two photos were taken in an abandoned school, filled with graffiti and street art in different colours and styles. Needless to say, I had to pose in front of it to get the perfect outfit snap.

This outfit has become a regular in my look book, mainly because of how simple yet fun it is. I absolutely love the iconic print on the back of this shirt, and the pop of colour it gives to this look pulls it all together nicely. The shoes are my current favourites, white Common Projects sneakers, and I can't emphasise enough how comfortable they really are. I never expected these to become a pair I wear on the regular, but I've found myself throwing them on almost every single day. This look will definitely be re-used during many lazy days to come!

By now I'm sure that no one has missed the incredible influence high fashion brand Gucci has had on the fashion industry. Celebrities, fashion bloggers, and collectors all over the world are fighting to get their hands on the recently released, vintage inspired garments pictured above. Creative director Alessandro Michele has taken the brand from a classic high-end brand, to the trendy it brand that everyone is talking about.

Gucci was never a brand that I'd consider one of my favourites until the brand completely shifted gears and started producing a range of clothing that caught my eye. I'm absolutely in love with the old-school vintage print, and I'm not alone. These hoodies and t-shirts are sold out almost everywhere, and selling for a very hefty price-tag on eBay. Unfortunately the brand also comes with a price that will make most wallets close and run away forever, but a girl can dream, right? What are your thoughts on these pieces? Let me know in the comments!

Music

Ever since the Weeknd dropped his album "Starboy" I haven't been able to stop listening to this song. I often get tired of songs very quickly, but for some reason this one has been on repeat for the past month, and I'm sure that won't change anytime soon. A$AP Rocky, who makes an appearance in the music video, is a fashion inspiration to me, and someone I follow quite closely, so when I saw that he was in the video it instantly made it 10x better.

If you've been on social media the past week there is no way that you have missed the incredible hype around the collab between perhaps two of the most iconic brands in our century: Supreme and Louis Vuitton. The two brands are incredibly different, but have combined their own unique aesthetics to create a striking collection that has taken the fashion world by storm. Supreme started off as a small skateboard brand, but has grown into a cult classic during recent year. The iconic, red box logo can be seen on people all over the world, and has become very recognisable. Louis Vuitton on the other hand is one of the most famous luxury brands out there, and is known for its traditional pattern and sought after bags.

When I found out about this collaboration I was incredibly excited since it is something completely new that hasn't really been done before. I find it to be very innovative and exciting, and I can't wait for the collection to be released (rumoured release is in June as of right now). Depending on what price the collection retails for, I will definitely try to get my hands on one of the iconic pieces. The phone cases and the t-shirts are definitely items that I'd love to sport, whereas the bright red duffle bags could be a bit more tricky.

All in all I absolutely love this concept, and I hope to see many similar collaborations in the near future. Hopefully this collaboration will be the foundation for more sick collections. What would be your dream collab? I'd love to see one of the huge luxury fashion houses like Fendi or Prada collaborating with a smaller brand. Let me know in the comments what your thoughts on this collection are and what your dream collab would be!
