My best friends and I got together to do an impromptu shoot using flower crowns made from fresh flowers.

It’s super simple to make and you get a really pretty outcome! Its perfect for a music festival or, even if you just feel like being a forest fairy for the day!

All you need is :

    1) Fresh flowers

    2) A pair of Siccors, (big ones preferably, the stalks and wire were pretty hard to cut!)

    3) Brown/Green wire ( I got mine from Daiso in the gardening section. I suppose you can purchase these at any gardening store, or any DIY store!)

    4) A black hair band or wire to wrap the flowers around.

All you really need to do is to gather the flower selection and wrap the wire around it to secure it properly. I chose really small flowers like baby’s breath because it looked so delicate and fresh, and to balance that “freshness”, I picked flowers that were slightly on the duller side. After doing 2 of the flower selections, I tied them to the 2 ends of the hairband using the brown wires and started to bend them inwards to meet in the middle. Voilá!  There you have it, a perfect flower crown.  You can do more than 2 sections, depending how thick you want the crown to look. I don’t usually do DIY things, so for my first DIY project, it was SO EASY. I’d definitely be making these again!

The flower crowns really brought my inner flower child/hippie out. Enjoy!

gardens by the bay part 1

Recently, I went to the Gardens by the Bay, and they just so happened to have their tulip display out! Might I just say, that Tulips are probably my new favourite flower. I love how they are planted and grow in huge bunches.  I took so many photos of the beautiful flowers, that I need to split this trip up into 2 posts. IMG_1809

Theyre so dramatic. I was really quite amazed by how beautiful the colors of the flowers were. Sometimes, natural beauty just cannot be recreated.

My Moods

 

Hey there,

 

I decided to create 2 boards to illustrate my current moods for fashion. I suppose it could be because of my holidays that I’ve been feeling pretty relaxed lately, more so than ever. I don’t usually like pastel shades, but some how, this season I’m leaning more towards it. Perhaps its the “chill” mood my holidays have placed me in. Anyways, enjoy ❤

tarte review

IMG_1102 IMG_1106 IMG_1111 IMG_1113 IMG_1117I just got my very first Tarte Gifts from the Lipstick Tree Achiote Color Collection. I’ve heard so many people raving about this brand, so I thought Id just give it a try. The set comes with 3 products, the Maracuja divine shine lip gloss, Lip luster, and the Amazonian clay 12 hour blush!! I was most excited to try the blush, and true to its name, it really did stay on for about 12 hours straight, despite Singapore’s horrid weather. First things first,

Achiote is from a tree found around the tropical regions of South America, and is known for its vibrant and pigmented colour produced rom the seeds of the fruits.  Its such a pretty colour! urucum-achiote urucum powders1404623-main-LheroSo, it came like this. Wonderful packaging. I really am such a sucker for pretty packaging. I’ll buy it instantly. I’ll start reviewing the lip products. For the lip gloss. I noticed that there actually isnt really that much product, which im not exactly happy about. Its only that small bit above the beautiful flower design. Which isnt a lot really. However, it went on smoothly, and has this really minty/peppermint smell to it! I really love the flowers so, that won me over. The lip luster smells and taste the same too. Im not really a lip person, I actually really like my lips to be neutral toned. BUT! I must admit, this lip luster is like a lipstick and lip balm combined. Which makes it really attractive for me since I LOVE lip balms. The color goes on really well and stays for quite a long time.

The BLUSH!! Oh man, the blush is something I need to rave about. This blush stays on the whole entire day. Its pretty impressive since it stayed on for so long despite me sweating like crazy (I had cooked lunch that day). The color goes on incredibly pigmented. A little goes a long way I must say!

Overall, my initial experience with Tarte cosmetics has been a great success and I definitely hope to be purchasing more from this brand. Unfortunately, the Sephora here does not bring in Tarte. Hopefully, I’ll get to get some new products soon!!
