Outfit // Earth Hour 2014


crop top: missguided // leather skirt: thrifted (similar + similar) // belt: brands outlet (similar)// sunglasses: missguided* // wedges: new look (similar + similar)

This is an all-black look spreading awareness for and inspired by Earth Hour 2014.
Basically, on Saturday 29th March (today), at 8:30-9:30pm (local time i.e wherever you are) do your part to conserve energy, turn off your lights and light a candle for an hour! Can you do it?

Also, it's finally spring/Easter break and although I'm super duper happy that school is out for 2 never ending of pile of revision that I have to get through is seriously deteriorating any motivation and willpower I have to work D:

Oh and, if you don't have a (faux) leather skirt or a black crop need to get one. I've been wearing mine to death.

Review // Revlon Lip Butters in Peach Parfait & Berry Smoothie

I know that there are tons of reviews on these products but since I got these for Christmas (which now seems like aeons away), I thought I'd show them anyway (:
I received two - Peach Parfait and Berry Smoothie.


A normal lip product tube that twists up with a plastic, quilted embossed casing that I think is actually quite nice. The casing are different coloured depending on the shade which is good to tell them apart. The lid clicks when you put it over the tube which is good because then you know that it's sturdy and won't fall off whilst in your bag!


These are described as 'lip butters' and to me, they are like tinted lip balms, although not quite as moisturizing. It's very easy and smooth to apply as it's quite creamy which means no tugging - almost like butter, except without the oily-ness :P Both shades are quite sheer (the swatches above consists of about 3 to 4 swipes) but this also means that it's great to apply on the go when you don't have a mirror and it's also buildable to your desire - perfect for casual daytimes. The wear time for these are about 2 hours - which is not bad for a balm like product - until there's need to reapply.

Berry Smoothie

This shade is my favourite out of the two! It's also more pigmented than Peach Parfait. There are no sparkles or shimmer in this one, and the shade isn't as bold as it looks in the tube. A berry colour (ever so slightly darker than it looks on the picture).This is definitely a my lips but better kind of shade as it gives it a tad more colour and makes it a little glossy. Noticeable, but subtle.

Peach Parfait

On the swatch it looks like a peachy shade but honestly, it's so sheer that the peachy-ness doesn't show. Instead, what you do get is glossier lips with hints of gold shimmer (as you can see from the tube). Not so keen on this one as I'm not a huge fan of making my lips shimmer up close, but it's still nice when I'm feeling lazy and want something simple and easy.

Just in case some of you still think I'm sane...

Final Verdict

I'm loving the formulas of these as they're smooth, creamy and semi-moisturizing. The shades are sheer which for me, isn't a problem because it's great for natural everyday looks. I'd highly recommend Berry Smoothie to everyone and Peach Parfait only if you don't mind shimmer...All in all, a great product and I really want to get Candy Apple next!
Oh and, be careful not to put them in extreme heat because they melt relatively easily and it gets all over the side of the tube which is not good....

Have you tried Revlon lip butters? If so, which is your favourite shade; if not, would youuuu?

Wishlist #25 // Spring Maxis

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 

With spring well and truly underway, it's time to break out these flowy maxi dresses as you go picnic-ing in the park or stroll along the beach. Look chic and beat the gradual heat! Especially for you petite girls, these maxi dresses will give the illusion of a taller silhouette!

1. Tiered Maxi Dress - OneStopPlus ($69.99)

I just love the simplicity of this dress. The neutral, earthy brown means you can pair it with almost anything. Dress it up with chunky jewelry or dress down with natural makeup, beachy waves and sandals! This dress is super versatile and leaves loads of room for experimenting!

2. Cut Out Waist Chiffon Maxi Dress - Urban Outfitters ($39.99)

Now who doesn't love tasteful cut outs? It reveals just enough to keep people guessing ;) I imagine this to be more of a night time dress - especially with the sheer overlay!

3. Must Be Fate Maxi Dress - Nasty Gal ($68.00)

The style that immediately comes to mind is bohemian chic. With the sheerness, floral pattern and thigh-high split...this will work wonders as a cover up if you want to hit the shops or stores right after a trip to the beach!

4. Adventurer Slit Maxi Dress - Forever 21 ($22.80)

What caught my eye was the tribal printed bottom half. The word adventurer that this dress is called is perfect. Don't you just wish you could travel the world with this? 

5. Love Crop Maxi Dress - ASOS ($20.70)

You can't go wrong with an all white maxi dress - especially one a strategically placed side split! You could rock this in the day time, but personally I'd reserve it for the night and glam it up with gold jewelry and a bold red lip a la Hollywood style!

Will you be picking up any maxi dresses this season? Which one is your favourite?
