Beverly Hills 90210

Day 2 of our trip was spent driving around Sunset Boulevard, grabbing lunch at The Beverly Hills Hotel, browsing the shops along Rodeo Drive, and strolling around Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Being a huge fan of Old Hollywood, a visit to the Beverly Hills Hotel has been on my bucket list for the longest time. That's why as soon as we finalised our flights to the US, I made sure luncheon at the iconic "Pink Palace" was part of our itinerary.

Strolling Around Venice Beach

Kicking off my US travel posts with photos from our first day in LA.

No trip to La La land would be complete without a visit to the iconic and bohemian district of Venice. Since our accommodation was just a stone's throw away from the Boardwalk, we thought we'd spend our first morning there, soaking up the very laid-back California vibe.

As we were still a bit jet-lagged, we decided to take it easy and have a relaxing morning by the beach, people watching, listening to the street performers and enjoying a nice spot of brunch at one of the many delectable eateries along the promenade.

Online Shopping at BeautyMNL

Sharing on the blog today my newly found shopping haven,, the country's #1 online shopping destination for makeup, hair care and skincare. A few of my friends have actually given positive reviews about the site so I was looking forward to trying it out for myself.

As with every first time purchase on a new website, I usually just order one thing to see how the entire process goes. I bought a bottle of COSRX's BHA Blackhead Power Liquid, a product that's been on my to-buy list for the longest time. Containing 4% Betaine Salicylate, this chemical exfoliator gets rid of blackheads quickly and clears clogged pores.

Part of their A/W16 STYLE HEROES collection, the Pinny dress (otherwise known as the pinafore) is the ultimate in versatility. Whether you want to elevate your look with a dressy blouse or go casual in a simple tee, transforming your outfit is as easy as switching the tops you wear it with. Read on as I show you how to style this season's must-have pinafore in three different ways:

Look 1: Fall Style in the Tropics
Just because we don't have four seasons doesn't mean we can't style our looks accordingly. So what's the best way to sport cool weather outfits whilst in the tropics? Instead of piling layers and layers of clothes, the trick is to choose garments that have an Autumn/ Winter feel.
