London and Paris Pictures and Loots

Bonjour! Yes finally I am sharing with you the trip I just took to London and Paris. Both cities are beautiful in their own way. London is industrious and business-like while Paris is all about meanings and romanticism. I love the contrast!

Anyway here are some pictures for your eyecandy :D

I went totally crazy with winter hats! It wasn't that cold but hey I got a perfect excuse to sport this warm fuzzies in London , I can never do that in Malaysia where it's hot all the time. 
This one is from Dorothy Perkins and makes me feel like JLo. Nora Danish was caught sporting one too(below).

So here are some pictures of London


Crepe, Music and People-Watch. What else is more fun?

The must-have shot with a double decker

The gate to Birmingham Palace.

These are some of the things I got from London shopping trip at Oxford Street. London offers cheaper perfumes, clothes and accessories compared to Malaysia. My favorite stores are Primark, Forever21, HnM and Boots.

For RM 60, this is a steal! I have worn this perfume, Sunflower by Elizabeth Arden since college and I love to layer it with Pretty, also from Elizabeth Arden. Super girly and florally smell!

I love how the packaging of Maybelline Mascara is different in each country. How come ours don't come with lace trim and a modern shape? 

Bought the scarf from Zara and the white beret from Mark and Spencer

The elite shops for their groceries at MnS. The store sells more than just cookies and clothes here. Fresh produce and cheeses are also available!

So then, I travelled to the city of Love.*Swoon*. Paris was what I imagined it to be: very poetic and symbolic. People look for beauty and inspirations all around them. Everything is so detailed, rustic and pretty!  Ah, so romantic! I'd love to live there!! 

The train station in Paris. The first sight of the beautiful intricate architecture

A pink cafe! How cute is this? Cafe culture is big in Paris and places like these are never empty with people-watchers and Parisians looking for inspiration-or just a cuppa.

This floral shop caught my eyes. Heavenly filled with hydrangeas and roses. So pleasing to the eye.

Bonjour Paree! Can I please stay here forever!!?

Parisians love their sucre (sweets) and take their chocolate seriously. This chocolatier outlet displays a never ending types of chocolate in different shapes and color.

One of the tube entrances that caught my eye, because it was made of silver and sparkle-y colored glasses.

The Louvre. If you love art, this place is a must-visit!. I was just excited to see the Mona Lisa.

Can you see the mysterious smile on Mona Lisa? I thought the painting was bigger. It is now covered with glass so pictures are allowed.

Me under the glass pyramid of the Louvre

In the section called the Medieval Palace.

Chilling by the lake near the Louvre. The ultimate spot to layan jiwang.

The Sunset in Paris.

As I walked by, my breath was taken away by the sight of Eifel Tower with the backdrop of the sunset.

Gorgeous, no?

Sparkling Eifel Tower.
 The tower lights up every hour for ten minutes and I was lucky to witness that twice. People go "Oooohs and Ahhhs" over it, so it's hard to miss! It was really beautiful.

The next day, I bumped into a wonderful vintage and antic flea market.

I got this turquoise bracelet for a bargain. Everytime I wear it, it reminded me of Paris. I just love the wiring details and the statement size of this bracelet.

The flea market in Paris sells many unique items, like....


Old records


and vintage brooches!

One thing I love about Paris is just how fashionable every one is! People are so well-presented and chic. It is, after all the city of fashion. I never feel overdressed at all, and that is wonderful!

I hope to get back to Paris one day. Oh, I absolutely love the beautiful city of Love: the chic people, croissants, chocolate crepe and the ambiance of romanticism.

I promise I'll share more London and Paris loots in my next post! Stay tuned

Runway Makeup: Inspired by Myer's Gold Rush Look

Inspired by the picture above, I created a runway look for my sister, Shazreeyana.

Thanks to my beautiful sister for being such a sport as a model!

We have been goofing around playing doll-up and so let the pictures do the talking:

What do you think of the runway look? You can definitely tone down the black eyeshadow for a more wearable look. I hope you're inspired to combine black and gold eyeshadow because it does give a Diva Glam impact! Gives me the Gold Rush!

My sister created the Twiggy (below) look on me. Stay tune for pictures of Twiggy black crease look on me :D

UPDATE: Oh, the twiggy look is up! Click HERE for more pics of this look by Shazreeyana on me :D
