Punk Revival

Love this yellow studded belt from Forever21. I wore it yesterday with a black and white outfit and the Day-Glo yellow is simply striking. This reminds me of a Kate Spade clutch in a similar color which I didn't buy eventually. At only S$13, this belt is definitely a more economical option and achieves the same punk graffiti look. The studs are an added bonus!
Also available in Day-Glo pink and orange, red and black.

Face Roller

I bought this face massage roller at a shop in Far East Plaza yesterday. By rolling this religiously around the jaws and neck for ten minutes every day, the face will supposedly become slimmer and dreaded double chins will be prevented from appearing. I have a friend in Taiwan who swears by this and indeed she has a very slim jawline.

According to the instructions, the roller is supposed to be rolled up and down the jawlines. However, I would suggest rolling it upwards only as rolling it downwards seems contrary to the objective of achieving firmer skin.

The shop also sells arm rollers and leg rollers that will supposedly improve blood circulation and reduce cellulite. All these rollers are retailing for less than S$10 each (except for the leg rollers which cost more than S$10) and I think, worth a try. Aaah, the things we do in the name of beauty.

Planner 2009

My Hello Kitty craze has struck again. It's an on-again-off-again affair with the cat with no mouth. This 2009 planner (or Schedule Book as the Japanese call it) has a red PVC cover with an machine-embroidered outline of the feline on it. The corner of each page shows Hello Kitty and her sister playing in the park, on the swing, and playing on the see-saw in a frame-by-frame mode. Just flip the pages and the cartoon can be seen!

My Outfit Today

I wore this to a cocktail cum Thomas Wee preview last week. A black dress with a ruffled front, a pink shawl from Pedder Red to add color to an otherwise safe dress, a limited edition pink Purple Anemone clutch and my favourite Purple Anemone chunky bracelet.

I'm not usually a shawl person but couldn't resist buying this shawl a few months ago as the color was just so alluring. I have debated internally and with friends if I should be wearing one to a cocktail (is it a faux pas or only something only older women wear?). In the end, I just wore what I wanted!
