If your eyes are a camera, then you can truly find beauty in ANYTHING that you do … including CLEANING.

I was cleaning the glasses for the holidays and of course I got sidetracked by how pretty they were.
Before I knew it, I was grabbing my camera and taking pictures of the glasses instead!

Skirts seem to be constantly changing up their styles now. We’ve gone from a typical pencil skirt, to sheer maxi skirts, to high-low skirts.

Recently I came across this while surfing through the Forever21 site: the asymmetrical skirt (some call it “the waterfall skirt“)

Pretty right? Ironically, I was thinking “well, can’t you just twist a high-low skirt to the side and pretty much get the same effect?” I tried it out and I kinda like it! Plus, you can choose which side to have shorter or longer.

Might sound a bit weird, but you never know until you try~

I always say, “never buy something if you can’t match it with AT LEAST 3-4 outfits.

Be smart with how you shop.

Sure its nice when you find that amazing top that you’ve already visualized the PERFECT outfit with because it has the right fit, the right colour, ect … however, you probably would only wear it with that ONE specific outfit.

I think this is a BIG NO-NO. sure that’s really awesome, but is it worth it?
Wouldn’t you rather have something with more versatility?

Okay, sure the splurge of that one super-duper AMAZING totally feel-good outfit isn’t bad to do rarely (I mean, don’t we all need those from time-to-time?), but NOT regularly. Not unless you’ve got the money to spend and not a damn to give. However, if you’ve got a budget, and can be a sensible person, realistically, this is the way to go. (I’ve met people who have the same outfits in different colours and bags and shoes to match each of them which just makes my jaw drop thinking of the amount they’ve spent on these name-brand clothes!)

I speak very highly about this because I’ve made the mistakes and I’ve definitely changed my ways of shopping. It still happens to me once in a while when I buy something on the spot, feel guilty later, and end up returning it to get my money back (always know your return policy!).

Who says you can’t stay trendy even while shopping sensibly on a budget?

What is it like for you financially when shopping? Any tips you wanna share?

Its official! It’s my favourite thing to come out this summer! I am LOVING this trend!

Sheer tops are a girls best friend. Why do I say this? Because sheer (as well as chiffon) is the easiest thing to throw over on top of literally anything you’re wearing. Its so light, you almost don’t even realize you are wearing it.

It’s great when it’s a hot day and you feel like only wearing a tank top, but you still want to be covered up. Bam! Sheer to the rescue, while still looking super chic to boot.

CLOTHING TIP #1: Please ladies, let’s remember that sheer means that it IS see-through! be sure to cover up under (we don’t need to see that hot pink lace bra from Victoria Secret!) ! I recommend nude color tank tops because they work the best!

CLOTHING TIP #2: These type of tops are also GREAT transitional pieces for your fall/winter wardrobe for layering! Now THAT”S making an investment worth your while!

I have yet to really know the difference between chiffon and sheer completely, so if im wrong, please DO correct me! (Aren’t they pretty much the same besides the actual styling itself?)

How do you feel about the sheer clothing trend? =)

Super quick clothing tip =)

Ever find something you want or need to wear, but it has wrinkles and you really don’t have the time to iron it?

Take that article of clothing, place it as close to your shower as you can, and let the water run on high for a few minutes. Boom! You now have wrinkle free clothing while showering.

It actually worked for me today on my run to work, so that’s why incase you didn’t know, try it if it happens. Not clothes with A WHOLE BUNCH OF DEEP CREASES THOUGH. Just those small noticeable wrinkles that annoy you.

Chriselle Lim also did a video on it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXspt4vFx7o&feature=plcp
