Lookbook: Le Chic Sport

Lookbook: Le Chic Sport

Hi my loves!! It’s the last day of 2014 and also my very last post of 2014! It’s been a whirlwind this year, there were highs and lows, I was working full time and also worked on my blog. My blog didn’t progress as much as I had wanted it to, due to some hosting issues and me losing almost 2 years worth of content and also the fact that I worked full time. As we all like to say, 2015 is going to be different! I have many exciting projects lined up and I have many travel plans for next year! I feel that for the first time in my life, I’m finally free and able to do what I really want to do, my priority for 2015 is my blog and also myself. I’ve always been a girl who likes to take care and maintain myself but I don’t feel it’s enough anymore, I’m going to improve myself and be the best possible version of myself! Which means, I’ll be spending more time on doing things that make me happy, like going to the gym eating healthy, it will no longer be something on the side for me, it will be my main priority.

For my last lookbook post for 2014, I wanted to do something fun and sporty. I purchased this cropped sweater from H&M in New York. The fabric is rather hard to describe, I would say it falls between plastic and cotton? The moment I saw this at the store, it caught my eye and hundreds of images wen through my head on how to possibly dress this sweater. I paired it up with riding pants from Zara, which is almost like a scuba diving suit material and heels. Finishing it off with a pair of nude heels from Aldo just completes the look and turns it from normal to chic. Of course, I couldn’t leave the house without my trusted Michael Kors sling bag!

Lookbook: White Christmas

Lookbook: White Christmas

Hi my loves! Hope everyone had an amazing Christmas and Boxing Day! I’m sure all of you feasted on some deliciousness over the past few days! I certainly had my fair share of home cooking, junk food and chocolates, I do feel terrible but I must enjoy myself at least once a year. 🙂

Last year I had spent Christmas in Taiwan, even though it wasn’t a white christmas but it was certainly cold and rainy. My wardrobe consisted of scarves, beanies, coats, leather jackets, sweaters and boots. I’m not sure why but I do feel more christmas spirit when it’s cold and I’m all layered up before I step outside. It was my first time in Taiwan and thank goodness there’s no snow because I’m not sure how well I’ll handle that kind of cold. Now that I’ve spent Christmas again in Durban, I’m almost not used to it anymore. It was extremely hot on Christmas day, 40 degrees and counting. I think it is the hottest I’ve ever experienced here in Durban! It was definitely a good day for the beach!

Since there was no actual white christmas, I opted for an all white outfit with minor red details. I absolutely love my Kate Spade bag that I purchased from New York, the colour is so bright and really lifts an outfit. I kept my look simple and elegant, it’s perfect for a work or even a dinner party (just make sure no red wine is spilt). I paired my high-waisted white skirt with a lace crop, the lace crop itself is very casual and I usually wear it with jeans. The skirt changes the look completely, paired with some heels and you’re good to go.

Chanel Chance

Chanel Chance

Hi everyone! Hope you’re all having a great week so far! It’s Christmas Eve! Since I won’t be posting tomorrow, I wish you all an amazing Christmas (if you are celebrating) and those who are not celebrating, hope you enjoy some time off during the festive season!

So today I decided to post something I’ve never quite done before, I decided to get all up close and personal with Chanel Chance. I must say that I have quite a big perfume collection, sitting at about 17 bottles of perfumes, but there’s always one bottle that I tend to gravitate towards when I’m looking to spray myself in the morning before I leave the house. Of course this all depends on my mood and what I’m wearing at the time (that’s quite important in determining what perfume I will be using). I love fresh and feminine scents and there’s no better way to describe Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche, it’s my all time favourite scent! It always makes me feel beautiful, feminine, fresh and without a doubt, it always brightens me and lifts me up. It’s bold but yet so subtle and leaves the person who gets a waft of it when you walk past wondering what scent you are wearing.

Of course, I won’t leave the house without my Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipstick, it’s in the colour Boy, it gives my lips a subtle nude pink and also extremely moisturising. Those two products are firmly in my staples list. What can you not live without?
