My new Black Lace Skater Dress - Devilplus Haul

I've recently discovered a new online shop called Devilplus- what a name right? Apart from the shop's cool name, they also have fabulous dresses and apparel for everyone. I was a bit wary of ordering online because I've had my share of online shopping mishaps (think wrong size, wrong colour, wrong everything) and so I was initially skeptical. I ordered a High Neck Black Lace Dress because I've always wanted a black lace dress for parties and for work. I thought the high neck was a nice touch, although I have slightly wider shoulders than most girls.

Nonetheless it arrived and I'm surprisingly impressed. Note that this is completely my honest experience, and not just some phony write-ups that some people do. Here's the stock photo compared to what I received!







I'm so happy with it- it's really high quality and the lace feels soft and smooth. It looks EXACTLY like the photo on the website and I'm so surprise that online shops can serve this quality to customers. Honestly, I'm so happy with it, though I wish sometimes they can make the dresses a little bit longer. I absolutely love the style too, it's quite elegant and feminine and not too revealing at all. The lace is so edgy and I think the quality is great, especially for the price.

The shipping was free to Hong Kong- so I didn't pay a cent. It arrived well within a week of my order. I'm so happy with it. You guys should check it out if you want something quick and elegant for work. They have so many working clothes. Devilplus also sells a variety of fashion dresses, such as cocktail dresses and maxi dresses.

What do you think of my new dress? Yes or no?

Off Shoulder for Summer !

I've recently been in love with off-shouldered everything- tops, dresses, cute shirts… you name it, I've searched it up. I love the off-shoulder trend because it looks so effortless, casual yet has a slightly sensual vibe to it. It is appealing without trying too hard. It makes any outfit a little bit more spicy and sexy, don't you agree?

Here are some of my favourite off-shouldered tops. They pair so well with a short skirt or a pair of jeans. I've even bought myself a red striped, tribal off-shouldered top. I've styled it with my white skirts from Dorothy Perkins, so it elongates my lower half.






Here's the top I bought the other day. It's red and tribal and off shouldered, but with straps. I love the straps because they're not too revealing. I want to buy some proper off-shouldered tops though.


What do you think of this trend? Happy summer girls!

Should You Consider Giving Your Fiancée A Vintage Diamond Engagement Ring?

If you are having trouble picking out the perfect engagement ring for your fiancée, it may be a good idea to think vintage. If you have never previously considered doing so before, we suggest you keep reading this article and see some great reasons why it can be everything your average engagement ring isn't.

As the ring is such a powerful and memorable symbol for your love, it can be important to get it right from the start. Maybe you just need to look at a range of stunning vintage diamond engagement rings to let them speak for themselves. If so then, discover elegant vintage diamond engagement rings from Kalmar Antiques. By visiting their website, you will get a glimpse into a range of designs from all different time periods. With heaps of history and meaning behind every diamond ring you can get your fiancée something completely unique; a treasure!

What’s the big deal with vintage engagement rings anyway? 

Well, when you buy vintage, you are buying an extra special ring which is at least fifty years old if not more! Whilst most represent the values and nuances of a historical era, you will also get glimpses into some of the finest designers and jewellery artists in recent time periods. If you are considering buying a vintage ring, knowing where to start looking will help get things started. Some great places to begin are with reputable internet retailers such as Kalmar Antiques, estate sales, specialist vintage retailers and even pawn stores. One important reminder is to always do some background research into a seller’s reputation before you purchase however. There are a number of fakes and replicas in the market, so learning how to spot the real from the fakes is crucial.

How can you tell she will love a vintage engagement ring? 

You can go to certain places if you know exactly what time period you are looking for. If you know which era your finance is in love with, this will be a major help. Is she a fan of Art Nouveau? Maybe she loves the Edwardian era? Do the stunning gemstones found in rings from the retro time frame dazzle them instead? These are all things you will need to consider. If you are still on the fence about buying an engagement ring of antique or vintage value, here are some great benefits…

Benefits to investing in a vintage ring for your engagement: 

 1. They have truly one-of-a-kind designs. When buying vintage, you are getting something which has no authentic replica. Unlike the big manufacturers and lots of shop-brought engagement rings, your ring will be completely unique – what better symbol to represent your love!

 2. The detail will be amazing. Due to the time and love invested into these rings by individual designers, you will see some beautiful workmanship.

 3. There will be a deeper story and meaning to your ring. Knowing the history of the engagement ring will really bring the finer details to life.

 4. There are types of vintage rings that are more affordable then you think! Instead of creating your own ring, this is a more affordable option that still gives you a completely unique feel.

 5. It's also more environmentally friendly. Due to no new materials being required to create the ring, you are doing your part to help preserve the earth’s precious metals.

Banggood Dress Outfit- Black and White Dress

Hey girlies! Today I want to share with you another outfit post- and this time it's time to don out the formal, girly, polite dress. I recently bought a awesome black and white chiffon dress from Banggood.com- an online retailer which sells amazing clothing and cute dresses. If you need any dresses for casual or formal events, they're probably the best place to go as they have so much choice. In fact, they have so much choice that I spent way too long choosing an item… and I mean it!

Their clothing is high quality, which is a rarity. I've bought some truly awful things online before. This dress is of good quality and has no loose seams. It is thin and light, perfect for the summer. I absolutely love it's pattern and it makes me look very professional yet cute. It looks professional and smart too. I think it would look good for professional girls, or for anyone with work to do like me.

Onto the dress- what I got looked exactly like the photo. I think it's perfect for petite girls, who are around my height (5'6) or shorter, because shorter dresses flatter slightly shorter girls. Even if you're tall, they have plenty of longer skirts and dresses. I've chosen a few of my favourite dresses which I think are absolutely lovely!

Here's what I received in the mail compared to the stock photo:

What do you think of my new outfit? I can't wait to wear it to my internship or a date dinner I'm going to, or for work. I'm working all summer, in various internships, so I'll be a busy bee!

Hopefully I'll survive the summer without buying too much stuff!

Blue Lace Dress Review- Everpretty dress

I recently bought a dress from Everpretty - a dress shop selling high quality prom dresses and cocktail dresses. I wanted a longer dress on purpose because I'm interning this summer and need a dress to go to work, and I'm out of blue dresses. I'm a huge fan of blue, and the lace dress that I got fits me so well. It's really soft and comfortable, and surprisingly stretchy, so I'd definitely recommend getting your true size instead of going up or down. 

It costs me €35.99 but it's definitely worth the money, because the dress is super high quality. I think what you get depends on the price, so this lace dress is definitely one of my favourites. I was worried it would look old fashioned because it's so long and my legs are (maybe) my best asset (not that I have any other assets). But I think longer dresses give off the elegant lady-like feeling more so than other short dresses. I usually wear shorter dresses, but this long lace dress really makes me feel like an elegant person.

So I started my internship today- I'm working until the middle of August and I can't wait for it to be over. The internship is daunting, I have to wear formal clothing everyday and wake up at 7am every morning. For a person who hasn't gotten used to the weather back home yet, and also for a person with severe jet lag, it can be quite tough. I'm so tired sometimes, but hopefully the internships I'll be doing will be worth it in the long-run. At least it'll be a CV boost, but I know it's long and hard work. Sometimes I even have to do overtime and work until late at night. I'm a bit worried now, maybe I'll go to the gym at the evenings.

What do you think of my new dress? More fashion to come over the next few weeks because I've bought a LOT of work clothes online. And I mean a lot!

Time to become an office lady! And don't forget to check out Everpretty

June Wishlist from Zaful

It's finally summer and I've been scouring online stores looking for some new shoes. I've recently been in love with sandals and open-toed shoes, because they're so versatile and chic. I also like beige and pale coloured shoes, because they give off a very summery vibe. It's finally time to store those winter boots in the basement and take out those lightweight sandals that are oh so comfortable.

I've picked some shoes that I totally love this season from Zaful, a cute boutique store which sells lovely shoes and clothes. I love their selection of shoes which look amazing and is quite affordable, though I haven't tried it myself. Their site seems pretty decent and easy to use. They also have a great selection of swimwear and accessories, as well as dresses and shorts. But shoes are still my favourite.





I love how Zaful sells such fashionable shoes at affordable prices. I want to buy them all! My favourite pair of shoes has to be the Rose ankle strap shoes from above, because they look like something from a princess movie. It's so girly and cute! I also have a penchant for ankle heels and chunky heels, because they make everyone's legs look longer and leaner. I also love how heels makes you feel instantly more alert and confident when you wear them.

Which pair of shoes do you love most? Let me know!

Sage shampoo tryout- AA

I recently received an email asking if I wanted to try a new plant-based shampoo from Amphora Aromatics UK, a beauty products shop from my lovely England. They are selling a new type of shampoo, and I've chosen to try out the Amla and Sage shampoo. Well- what are my thoughts? Firstly, it smells really good- it smells like a natural perfume almost, and it isn't sickly or sweet like other shampoos out there. Also it made my hair really soft and shiny, but I'm not sure if that's the effect of the shampoo or just because my hair's too oily!


What can I say? I've never seen a Sage shampoo before, and it's a good try. They have many different shampoos and different smelling products, such as Cedarwood and Peppermint and Peony, which sounds so cute and lovely. I don't know what those are like, but they might be worth a try if you're adventurous! 

I've just ended my stressful exams so that's a wrap up for this year! Another year gone! And I've ended with trying a new shampoo. How funny! 

Check out their Facebook https://www.facebook.com/AASkincareUK/

Let me know your thoughts! I'll be blogging so much more this summer, as my holidays have officially STARTED! Yay!

Wishlist from CNDirect.com !

Hey guys! I've been browsing a wholesale site called CNdirect.com lately and can't believe the lovely cheap prices! They're probably one of the most affordable clothing stores I've seen so far. Although I haven't gotten anything off there yet, I might just try it after my exams. I've beens so stressed- I just had 4 exams and I'm waiting for my last one on Friday. This is like a semi-short moment of break. To be honest, they haven't exactly gone very well this year, probably due to my poor planning and revision technique. Oh well- hope the last one goes well! 

Hope you like my wish list! Let me know what you think and don't forget to check them out if you want. They're so affordable!

Outfit for my summer internship- haul from Wholesale7

I've been trying out a new wholesale shop and I want to share with you my honest thoughts. The shop is called Wholesale7- and they have the biggest range of clothing ever. Arguably more than other shops online. What I love about their website is that it's so easy to use! Honestly, their site's one of the easier ones to use, compared to other sites I've been on (and there are so many). I also love the fact that they put the weight of all the clothing on their site. This is so important, because without the weight you wouldn't know what materials they are made from, and whether it is good quality or not. Remember to check the weights of the clothing before you buy, because it's usually a good indicator of the quality. 

Nonetheless, I've tried ordering an item there and it has finally arrived. The shipping took 2 weeks, so it was relatively quick. I'm quite impressed by the quality of the Black Striped Long Sleeve dress- it's such a bargain at only $14.87. I chose it because it looked formal and I needed an outfit for my summer internship. 



Moving on to the actual review. When I got the package I was surprised as it was super heavy. The material of the dress is cotton, and it feels so good on the skin. It's soft yet stretchy and I love the waist bow, which I had to tie. I also liked how it's quite long, although I would prefer it to be shorter. Their sizing is very accurate- actually I'd recommend going true to your own size since their sizes are accurate. The dress is stripy and very classy, and looks super formal. I can imagine me wearing this after work or something.

I love how the quality of the dress is so good. Again, I'm surprised as I've had some pretty bad experiences buying online. Wholesale7 is trustworthy and reliable and they gave me a shipping number after the order.

Also the dress looks EXACTLY like the picture. Exactly. No difference at all. I'm so happy!

My biggest tip? Check the weight of the item before buying, and check the sizes carefully. The material is also super important. I've had a pretty good experience so far! And this is totally my own opinion, I'm not endorsing anyone here!

I can't wait to wear it for my internship! I think I'll buy something else on the site and see how it goes next month, since they have so many long-sleeved dresses which I love. They're definitely affordable, and more so than other shops. What do you think of this outfit? Yes or no?

And check out Wholesale7.net because my experience was pretty good!
