Last week I had to attend Presentation Day (aka award ceremony) at school. It was nice to see several people I haven't seen for weeks and collect my award. For this, I wanted to look put together but still casual at the same time since it was held during the day. I have always loved classic silhouettes but adding a twist to them to give it a modern edge. The trousers were a slim fit and had leather panelling which gave the classic trouser a modern edge, but still gave it a classic look. I also created a cuff with the trousers to create a casual-cool look. I also went quite minimal by finsihing the outfit with a messy bun, a gold sports-lixe watch by Casio and my favourite pair of shoes. I also broke up the monochromatic palette with some bright summer nail polish.

Hi everyone! I know it maybe nearing the peak of the holiday season but I also know that many people do leave their Christmas shopping down to te very last minute. So I have concocted another gift guide for under $50 (you can also see my stocking stuffers for under $20 here). On that note, tell me what you would want for Christmas down below in the comments.

No doubt that in social media, it was the year of instagram. It has no doubt changed the landscape of social media since it has allowed us to use a different medium to connect and discover. For a while, I had an instagram account for a couple months with really using it, it wasn't until this year I started to use this app. So I thought I would share some of my favourite images I captured this year.

For years, I have forgone wearing a watch just simply because it had felt annoying to have some heavy ‘thing’ to wear around my wrist. However, in the last year, the fashion world has seen a resurgence of watches and I cannot live without it. Like I said in this post, my must have accessory is my watch. It is practical (especially for those times when I’m rushing to catch the train) and it is an essential layering piece.
With the wide array of watches out there, it can become quite overwhelming. However, when you do find the right watch, it can act as an extension of your personality rather than just an accessory. There are four factors in which you need to take into consideration: lifestyle, skin tone, wrist size and personal style. Find the right watch after the jump.

Thank you so much Shenita Goode of The Goode Style and Christine of Petite Hues who nominated me for the Liebster award! For those who don't know, The Liebster Award is an award for up-and-coming bloggers with less than 200 followers. For a blog which has only be launched a little over a week ago, to get some sort recognition amongst the blogging comunity is definitely exciting - so thank you Shenita and Christine. So how this works is that once you are nominated, you have to answer eleven questions that the blogger has posed for you and then I nominate eleven more blogs. So after the jump I'm going to answer Shenita and Christine's set of questions.
