High-end designer fashion- featuring Dezzal

I've recently discovered a new site called Dezzal (http://www.dezzal.com) which has a great variety of dresses. They are not cheap, however, as they are quite high-end and expensive. This is good, because most of the online shops these days sell low-priced items which of course aren't always good in quality. Dezzal's dresses seem to be quite well-made and fancy. I might even say they're a bit posh!

I like the website because it is very user-friendly. It is very easy to use, and all you have to do is browse through their categories of dresses. The website is well-designed and functional.

Designer items are their focus. They sell bottoms, tops, dresses and even designer clothing. For example, they have a range of items from Biemei, Ecosciy and a bunch of other brands. I'm quite impressed with their selection. I particularly love their minimalistic and elegant style.





What I like most about their shop is the range of elegant clothing. For people who like high-end fashion and go for elegance rather than cuteness, this shop is perfect. I particularly like lace and delicate chiffon materials. I usually go for those. Their shop has so many lovely items that I really wish I owned.

Overall, Dezzal is definitely a site to check out if you have time. Browsing through their site makes me happy, because I can admire all their high-end fashion.

Put Selfies On Your Phone Case- Caseapp Giveaway !

What's the best way to relieve stress? Take selflies! Just kidding- but making a new iPhone case from Caseapp also works! Caseapp is an amazing shop which allows you to customise your iPhone case, and I've decided to upload ALL my favourite selfies and photos with my best girl friends (and the occasional guy). It's such a great memory to have, and I'm glad that I can carry my photos around all the time. Every time I look at my case, it brings a smile to my face.

The quality of Caseapp's cases are very good. You can choose between a matte or a glossy finish. I chose a matte finish as I like the texture. It's really good quality, and you can even choose a silicone case upgrade for extra protection. They even allow you to customise iPad cases, Samsung cases and laptop skins, so it's a very versatile site. I love the matte feel of my new iPhone case. It looks amazing, and I've received so many compliments.

I've made my photos stand out against a super pink background. I love pink, though it's quite girly. And the hearts were a funny valentines day project, because boys sometimes do suck. Anyways, these cases make great presents don't they?





They have different collage styles that you can choose from, which means that you can have total freedom in choosing whatever design you want. I'm in love with my new case, because it looks pretty and I smile just looking at it.

April Wish list

My April wish list contains cute items from Banggood, a lovely online shop that sells many clothing, tops, apparel, jewellery and much more. They literally have everything you can ever want or need, all for a very reasonable price. I know it's always scary to buy things online, but with that amount of choice, it might be worth the risk. 

They have so many cute tops and dresses, and best of all they offer low cost shipping to anywhere in the world. I love their dresses and tops, especially some of the ones I've picked below. Aren't they stunning? You can shop for maxi dresses, office skirts, formal wear, casual outfits and everything all in one place. I really like these pieces- which suit my style. 


I prefer to go for elegant pieces or long-sleeved dresses. I love how they're modest, but chic at the same time. I'm not one to reveal a lot of skin, so their clothing really suits me. 

Speaking of which, look what I found yesterday- such a cute blouse!

Isn't the cat collar blouse cute? I love it! Definitely another on my wish list. 

Designer Wedding Dresses - Cocomelody


I'm browsing lovely designer wedding dresses, from the bridal shop Cocomelody. The shop sells a wide range of luxurious wedding dresses of all shapes and sizes. They even have a designer collection featuring Lily White, Grace Luxury and other big names in the wedding dress industry. I'm in love with the white, pristine feeling of the dresses. I love white dresses in general, as they're pure and innocent. Weddings are so glamorous really! 

They have such a huge range of styles. From vintage to elegant, they have wedding dresses that suit everyone's needs. 

I've just picked a few of my favourite styles. I wish I would be able to buy a wedding dress one day for my special day, if I ever get married! 







Not liking the elegant style? Cocomelody also has a fantastic range of convertible bridesmaid dresses which will suit girls who like more flexibility and change. The dresses are more colourful and bright than the regulars, so will suit people who want a bit of jazz in their weddings.

Library woes and some Personal Rants ~

I've been so sick lately, which is not good because it's EXAM SEASON. Yes, it's that time of the year where all the things you've done in the past few months all comes together… I'm trying to keep myself together and not get sick, but it's hard when all I do is sit in the library, daydreaming of the hot guy next to me (not that there are any in the library) and thinking of how nice it would be to finish my exams and get out of here.

No, really, I've been missing in action. Saying I'm a bit stressed is an under-exaggeration. My degree is hard, my exam technique isn't great, I'm really worried. I know this is somewhat of a long post, but it's been a while since I've sat down and typed out my thoughts. It's a free-flowing exercise of sorts. It helps with everything. I just feel very hollow sometimes, when there's no one around me, or when there are a million people around me but I'm all alone in my head. It's not a bad thing, but sometimes I wish I was somewhere else.


I bought a giant duck from the gift store for about 10 pounds, just to cheer myself up… Isn't it cute? It's definitely not as cute as my dog though, who is relaxing at home whilst I study my brains out. I'm really nervous, it's only a few weeks until my exams. I hope I don't go crazy before the exams :(

Everyone's really hardworking in my university. I'm surprised, but I guess here I'm quite average. I am not the best, but I hope I'm not going to fail my exams. I need to de-stress really badly. I have tried retail therapy, but it doesn't seem to be working. Maybe I should spend more money on shopping online, as it does seem to cheer me up - though it's terribly distracting.

I've also been SINGLE for way too long! Sometimes, I just wish there's someone to take care of me! But I guess I have lovely girl friends here to support me, which is something I'm very grateful for. My parents are also amazing, and they're visiting me in the UK for a day tomorrow. I'm so excited to see them, although I am embarrassed to admit that I've not been my best self lately. I just need a break, and I can't wait for summer. Summer will be fun, though I have to do some internships. It will be much easier than exams though.

The future's also so uncertain… I don't know what I'll do after graduating next year. Maybe I should continue doing another degree… but time seems to be running out. I'm so worried sometimes…





These are some of my favourite pictures from my year. Since my term is coming to an end, it's about time to do a yearly catch up post soon. I took these pictures in London and Edinburgh, and it was amazing. I met some lovely new people, new friends, and had an alright year. One thing that is new is that I've been single for the first time in many, many years, so this year is definitely an unusual year. I've decided to focus on myself instead of a guy, which really opened my eyes to what's out there… I love the city of Edinburgh, it was magical. I even went inside a little alleyway which had fairy lights all around the area. 

Isn't life strange? One year it will be happy. The other year, it will be sad. This year has definitely been somewhat of a highlight and a lowlight, because I've been rejected, pursued, heartbroken, enlightened and also extremely grateful for my support system. I love my girlfriends, they're there for me when I need them, and I can't help but say how much I love them. 

I love blogging for all of you too. It gives me so much pleasure and happiness, chatting to all of you, knowing that what I write will be read by all of you girls. It means a lot to me, so thank you. Thank you for sticking with me for these 5 years since I've been blogging. 


Edinburgh is so beautiful. I went there last term, so it was a while ago, but I like how the buildings light up during the golden hour. I've managed to capture the city at it's twilight moments. It really lights up. I think it deserves to be called one of the best cities in the UK, although I haven't been to too many. It's one of my regrets, not being able to travel as much as I'd like. Perhaps I'll go somewhere alone next year, and escape reality for a while. I hope I can go to Greenland to see the northern lights. They're so beautiful. I like colours and abstract things, not concrete, artificial glows. 

All I hope now is that I pass my exams! To all of you out there with finals, stay strong, healthy and idealistic. Remember, the exams do not define you, and neither do your grades. I have to admit, however, that it does matter a little bit, at least for now. I'm going to try my best, and forget about it because after all it's the effort that counts. 

How do you beat stress? Give me some tips!

The Most Amazing Spring 2016 Trends Worth Wearing


Ask a girl who has the slightest interest in the fashion weeks and shows, and she will agree that the spring is one of the most experimental and fun seasons of the year. From some amazing colours and patterns to some unique ideas, there is so much more for every kind of fashionista that you would be spoilt for choice for sure. Of course, not everyone can buy everything, which is why we have sorted these amazing spring 2016 trends from the runways that you can invest right away. Let’s get started.


Stripes are here: Spring 2015 had a lot of check prints, mainly the gingham that made an insane statement. This year, the focus is on stripes, which stand on their own. Starting with bold colours to amazing creative mix of shades, there are some amazing ideas for every girl out there. If you have never invested in striped dress, rest assured that the number of choices this year will spoil you. Some of the designers you need to check for some ideas include Christian Dior, Alexander Wang, and Dolce & Gabbana.


The white shirt movement: Most of the spring trend checklist includes this one particular trend, which is about the white shirt shift. Basically, a white shirt mostly is used like a classic, which you team with your suits for a formal outing or with your casual skirts for simpler looks. Thankfully, many designers have envisioned it in different ways for the spring this year, with cut-outs, varied materials, asymmetrical designs and much more. These shirts are classic in many ways, and some of them can be exclusive in many ways. Designers worth seeing for this trend include Anthony Vaccarello, Vera Wang and Proenza Schouler.


Ruffles for all: There is no denying that ruffles have a feminine, almost girly touch, which makes the idea quite exclusive. For spring 2016, many designers have worked with ruffles in varied tones. From minimalistic touches to more extensive designs that boast of genuine ruffled elements, the choices are many. Some of the best designs were spotted at designers like Rosie Assoulin, Balmain and Roberto Cavalli. With a pair of sneakers, a ruffled skirt or dress can be a perfect pick for the spring. For more designs, you can check Ralph Lauren and Chanel, and for summer sneakers, click here.


Bonus trend: One must also mention the amazing use of pleats this year, which emerged as one exclusive trend in many ways. Designers and top names like Gucci, Hermès and Carolina Herrera have worked with pleats in the most stunning way, using it exclusively for dresses. You can complete a nice pleated dress, with a pair of high heels and a hair up-do.
Hope you liked this post, until we meet again next time!

From Nothing to Cleavage- Upbra review !

I'm SUPER excited to be reviewing the best push up bra I've ever had. I'm sure some of you have seen the UpBra on Youtube and in various blogs, because it's currently the hottest, and I mean hottest push up bra there is. I've been eager to buy one of these for ages after watching so many videos of girls looking amazing in them. Seriously, even if you have no cleavage or no boobs like me you will be able to get a nice cleavage line using the UpBra. It sounds like a miracle, but it is actually true.

I got two nude UpBras in the mail, shipped all the way from the USA. It only took around a two weeks to reach the UK, so I'm very pleased with their shipping time. On their website you can see so many before and after videos of girls wearing the UpBra. The bra works by pushing your boobs in, as well as up, which creates the best cleavage line that any bra can do. I'm surprised no one thought of this before, especially since normal push up bras are so ineffective.

Warning- pictures of my boobs below (not really, but kind of)! 









Overall rating: 5/5

Effect: As a girl with a small chest, I am SO pleased with the UpBra's cleavage-making effect. Seriously, I feel like I actually have a cleavage now, although by no means is it amazing. Of course, it will work much better if I'm a bit larger up there, but I'm still so happy about the UpBra's enhancing effect. Who needs plastic surgery now!

Comfort: It's SUPER comfortable. It is one of the best strapless push up bras I have ever worn. They stay up without making you feel odd, and the cup sizes are perfectly sized. The plastic inside the bra also feels soft and comfortable. I am very happy with how comfortable these are, and they're very soft and feels great on your skin. I wouldn't have gotten a better bra. It also doesn't feel hard like other push up bras that I have from H&M and Topshop.

Style: They come in 3 colours: nude, black and white. I can't think of anything more versatile than these colours. I own two nude bras because I love how nude bras don't show through in white dresses. And I love wearing white. These bras also come in detachable straps, so you can style them in multiple ways depending on your dress. The best part is that they go well with any outfit, strapless or not.

Quality: The UpBra is very well made. It is definitely worth the price, because it is extremely well-made. The fabric feels strong and smooth and the straps are well made. They are also very strong and the bra doesn't feel flimsy at all. In fact, it is top quality, given the price. It's definitely worth it because it will last for a very long time- such a great investment!


I was so excited when my Upbra arrived in the mail. They're like a godsend. I sometimes hate my small chest because they don't look nice in a strapless dress. This bra solves my problems. I have to admit, I did think of getting plastic surgery at one point, but with the Upbra, even small-chested girls like myself can get some cleavage.

UpBra has kindly given me a 10% discount code for all of you: WB-10P-12. Don't forget to check them out, because their bras are the best push up bras I've ever tried!
