I love these serums as they're super hydrating and feels great on my skin. These serums compare to the expensive Shiseido ones that I get for like 10 times the price. These products really work well for my skin and are super cheap and affordable. I really like the basic ingredients of these skincare products, and I'm really impressed overall.

As for the toner and moisturiser, my skin feels really soft after using these products for a few days. I'm really impressed with their texture as they kind of remind me of the more expensive products that I've tried in the past only without the hefty price tag. I love the toner most, as it's refreshing and improved my acne a lot.

Hope you can check them out!

Best Sweater for This Winter- Harley of Scotland Review

You know what they say- no winter's complete without the cozy sweater you wear all the time at home or at play. Today I want to talk about one of the best sweater brands that I've come across recently, and they're called Harley of Scotland

A bit about the brand- Harley of Scotland have been producing high-quality sweaters since the 1930s based on the classic style’s of Scotland’s northwest. They produce seamlessly knitted classic jumpers in a variety of yarns from Shetland wool to cashmere. I love their long heritage and history, as well as their range of practical, stylish and comfortable knitwear for men and women. Their styles are timeless, elegant and classic, and are guaranteed never to go out of style for years to come. 

The brand is currently selling through Bosie which retails their sweaters and cardigans (click on the link to check them out). Take a look below at how I styled this gorgeous Women's Harley of Scotland® Shetland - Winter White from Harley of Scotland!

As for the quality, this jumper is made from Shetland wool. Shetlands are world renowned for their superior comfort, colour and handle.  I have to say, this sweater feels different due to the unique feel of their yarn, which is milled in some of the softest water in Scotland. The yarn used to create a Harley Shetland is sourced from a 200 year old local spinner, which means that the sweater made using the best quality materials.

The quality of the knitted sweater is excellent and second to none. In fact, the knitting is some of the best quality that I've ever seen- the stitching on the sides are detailed and tight, and the whole sweater feels like it can last me for years to come.

The sizing of the Harley of Scotland sweater is on the relaxed side. I got the Size Medium which fits a UK 8-10, and the other sizes comes in looser fits. I actually love the relaxed design of the sweater, shorts and a comfy pair of trousers for a nice "indoors" look. I reckon this sweater would also look great with jeans or leggings, and layered under a giant winter coat.

Overall, Harley of Scotland has a beautiful range of sweaters, and they come in lovely candy colors such as pink, pastel green, yellow, red and grey. They also stock many other types of cashmere items, such as shawls and sweaters and more which make up their luxurious collection. I particularly love their Shetland collection as all the designs are extremely well-made and comfortable. Overall, I'd highly recommend trying a Harley of Scotland sweater when you want to treat yourself to something new this winter.

How To Decorate Your Work From Home Desk- Bullsoversheep Review

I've been working from home a lot due to the coronavirus situation, and I want to talk about how I decorated my workspace so that I feel good everyday sitting at home. I recently purchased a lovely leather desk mat from Bullsoversheep, a gorgeous shop that sells leather accessories made by Denis in his workshop. Leather accessories are trending right now, and they'd make lovely gift ideas for someone who wants to spice up their workspace or home computer area.

My large leather desk pad arrived after my order within a few weeks as it's specially made and customised to suit your needs. Denis engraved my initials on the corner of the leather desk pad, and made sure it was in the color that I wanted. The desk mat comes in a variety of sizes, from small to large. I got the largest, which costs 80.81 GBP. I'm really impressed with the affordability of the leather desk mat, as it's really high-end and good quality for what you pay for. Take a look below!

As you can see, my beautiful leather desk mat looked lovely on my bed as well as my tabletop. I decided to put it under my computer and iPad so that my desk feels extra soft and luxurious. The leather quality itself is really good as it's made from a soft crazy horse cattle leather which looks lovely and natural. There are some natural patterns on the leather, which adds to its rustic and stylish feel. The leather itself was rolled up beautifully, and unfolded after you opened it.

As for the details, the leather desk pad had stitching across the edge of the pad. It is made with a lot of care and attention, and each stitch is perfect and contrasts the dark brown leather colour. I really love the leather desk mat that Bullsoversheep made as it's really beautiful and feels so soft! I use it everyday and it really adds something to my otherwise ordinary desk.

The shop's customer service is amazing, as Denis really responds to each and every query on the site. If you want your leather item customised, he can make it if you tell him what you want. The shipping for me was smooth and nothing went wrong, and Denis made sure that my item arrived perfectly. It's well worth the wait as the leather desk pad is the most beautiful pad that I've ever seen! 

Please visit Bullsoversheep and check out their affordable leather accessories range! 


Fun Finds: My StrawberryNet Shopping Experience

I've always wanted to buy reputable brands like high-end skincare lines online but have been too afraid of doing so because of all the fakes and counterfeit products on sites like eBay or Amazon. Today I want to review my experience shopping at StrawberryNet, a legitimate and easy-to-use online retailer of high-end branded skincare, makeup and hair products. 

I tried StrawberryNet because of two reasons. First, I wanted to buy some Shiseido skincare products as they're trending right now and I have no more face creams left. I've been desperate to get some but they're simply too expensive in my local Hong Kong shops. I also needed some eye creams for my dry and dull eyes. Secondly, I wanted to find a great retailer that sells brand products so that I can order some for my boyfriend who lives abroad in the UK. 

StrawberryNet delivers worldwide and it is free of charge for orders above HKD $300. The site is reliable and safe, and promises to deliver the items without any hassel. All of their items are branded, and they have incredible discounts all the time! I was curious, so here's what arrived in the mail one day after I ordered! Take a look below!

I ordered 4 things, of which 2 are from Shiseido, 1 from Lancome and 1 from Estee Lauder. As you can see, they're all big brands that are famous, and I am happy to say that the products are exactly as described on the package. There's no fakes, counterfeits or torn down labels when you shop from StrawberryNet. Everything's legitimate and real.

I'm really happy with the delivery speed and discounts offered by the site. I got 20% off my entire order plus another 10% off with a special daily discount, which means that the items are like 30% cheaper than what I can get in the normal shops. StrawberryNet is famous for their incredible prices and discounts, which are different everyday! I can see how I can become addicted to shopping from them.

As for the shipping, the items arrived within 1 day of ordering in Hong Kong. I'm so surprised by this speed, as it's great to be able to instantly use the products that I ordered the next day. It's crazy how fast they are, and I think they deliver pretty fast if you're outside Asia too.

Overall, I'm super impressed and happy with my new skincare products. StrawberryNet is a saviour if you're looking for a fast way to get branded products at a discount. For all of you outside Asia, this site is a must try too!

As a lover of leather, the best gift idea to get someone would be a leather accessory that they can cherish and use forever.

Today's focus is on the brand AMLeatherCrafts, an Etsy shop that sells lovely leather wallets, notebook covers and binders for everyone. The brand is founded by Alex Mamonov, who creates leather products in Russia. The brand uses only natural leather which comes in a variety of colors and styles, and are all minimalistic, beautiful and lovely in design.

The A5 size of this notebook makes it fit into any bag easily, and the design of this glamorous, luxurious leather notebook is second-to-none. I love the colors of the exterior, and the papers are of excellent quality. It's made from a lovely tanned leather which is buttery smooth, thick and doesn't bend or lose shape when I touch it. It's also got this lovely clasp buttons on the front for me to open and close the notebook. It's very aesthetic to look at!


I adore soft-touch leather notebooks as the exterior is really elegant, soft and cushiony. I love the outer texture of AMLeatherCraft's notebook as it's soft, smooth and feels stable. I can take notes all day with this notebook without feeling like it will break under my weight! All of their notebooks are well-designed, high-quality and outstanding.

The inside of this binder features a 4-ring binder plus lots of pages for you to write on. It also contains a pen compartment, a card compartment and also a side slit for you to place any rough notes, paper and pieces that you may want to carry on you. As a future PHD student, I really appreciate having so much space to carry my notes in.

Overall, the quality, design and feel of this lovely A5 binder is amazing and second-to-none. I'm really impressed with AmLeatherCrafts's products and this would make the best gift idea for anyone who loves writing or needs a new notebook that can last for years to come. It's definitely a notebook that I'll use for a very long time.

Spotlight on Yak Wool and Cashmere Sweaters- Mongolian Handicrafts Review

Hey everyone! Can you believe it's already June 2020? I can't! But this can only mean one thing- summer is flying past quickly and soon it would be time to take out those winter clothing and prepare for the cooler months. I'm so excited to share with you my new favourite brand and introduce you to somewhere you can get the best yak wool and cashmere sweaters in the world.

A bit about the brand- Mongolian Handicrafts is an Etsy shop that sells totally natural, sustainable and gorgeous sweaters and knits for men and women. The founders wanted to create clothing that is inspired by nature, using totally natural and pure materials to make lovely clothing that are warm, durable and fabulous. The shop works with the Mongolian nomads to ensure all trade they carry out is fair. Not only is the wool ecologically friendly but it can also increase the income of the herder families.

I want to talk about this gorgeous cashmere sweater that I got from Mongolian Handicrafts which keeps me warm during my evenings. It is totally gorgeous and a true tribute to the meticulous and detailed handicrafts from this brand. Take a look below at this amazing sweater!

As you can see, this sweater's quality and design is fantastic. In terms of the quality, the sweater is thin, lightweight but super warm as it is made from a light cashmere material. The cashmere is totally natural and feels extra soft on the skin. The threads and everything are sewn really well, and this sweater would last me for years to come. I also really love the light grey colour of this jumper as it pairs well with anything, including my white shorts, a skirt and jeans. It's extremely versatile as well as fashionable!

Mongolian Handicraft actually specialises in a variety of yak wool clothing, which is something I want to highlight in this review.

Benefits of yak wool versus cashmere

As yaks live in high altitudes in very cold climates, their wool needs to be able to withstand the cold harsh winters where temperatures could reach -50 degrees celsius. As such, Mongolian yak wool contains unique properties such as a high ability to insulate the body as well as a super soft, ultra luxurious touch.

These days, yak wool is becoming the warmest trend among brands that value sustainability as much as style. It is also environmentally friendlier than cashmere because cashmere comes from goats that live in small, cramped areas. Their heavy hooves trample the soil under their feet, and this means that the land that they're on is over-grazed and has led to the desertification of many regions. Yaks, on the other hand, have a softer footstep, which means that none of the land that they live on will be deserted.

Even the toughest yak wool is similar to cashmere meaning that it's soft, warm and easy to clean. In fact, it is even easier to clean than cashmere, as well as more durable and soft. This is because there's more amino acids in the fibres. This little-known material is literally a hidden gem, because it's easy to clean, odour-resistant, anti-microbial, stylish and totally warmer than cashmere.

Overall, I'm really impressed with this beautiful sweater from Mongolian Handicrafts. Their quality is fantastic, and the material feels excellent on the skin. It's one of the best sweaters that I've ever owned, and I truly think that the brand's ethos and mission will make them one of the best brands on the market.

The Most Comfortable and Colorful Yoga Leggings Ever- Liquido Active Review

Hey everyone! I've been working towards my fitness goals by doing a lot of yoga lately. I've started yoga for around a year now, and I have to say, my fitness levels are looking better than ever! Yoga is such a personal journey for me- it came to me during a time of great stress and sadness, so it means a lot for me to further my practise and improve.

I want to talk about my favourite new yoga outfit from Liquido Active, a Brazilian brand that specialises in the best yoga clothing for women. The brand's goal is to provide stylish, unique and one-of-a-kind yoga clothing for women, of which are practical, comfortable and super stretchy. I love how they have a variety of fabrics to choose from, which all vary in terms of stretchiness and softness. 

I chose this gorgeous pair of Ultra High Waisted Eco Legging Pink Way to match with this amazing Crop Eco Top Petit Rose. Take a look below at some of the photos from my recent vacation in Hong Kong!

As you can see, the crop top is perfect in length and design. It's made from a breathable, stretchy fabric which includes 88% polyamide and 12% spandex, which creates a soft smooth feeling across the skin. The crop top is beautifully coloured, super girly and also stylish. I love the soft padding inside too, which adds to the silhouette created by the crop top. It's so perfect for yoga and those morning stretches, and can be worn as a standalone top too!

As for the leggings, I have to say that I'm amazed at the softness of Liquido Active's range. The fabric that I chose was the "Freedom" fabric, which consists of 90% polyamide and 10% spandex. The result of this combination of fabrics means that the leggings are literally the softest pair of leggings that I own. It's silky smooth and glides across my skin so well, it feels like I'm not wearing anything when I do yoga.

I'm really impressed with the "naked" feeling that these leggings give. It's like a second skin, and I didn't expect it to be this soft and good-quality. The leggings are made really well, and the seams and everything were in place. It looks sturdy and durable, but I'd say it's more suitable for yoga and indoor activities rather than rough, outdoor sports.

The design of the leggings are beautiful too. Liquido Active doesn't repeat their prints, and this gorgeous pink legging is special because it's so stylish and cute. It pops out and stands out amongst the crowd. My friends and I planned to go on a yoga retreat soon and this pair would definitely make my yoga outfit pop! As for the print, it's really stunning and something that every yogi needs in their wardrobe.

Overall, I'm super impressed with Liquido Active's range of yoga clothing. There's something for everything since they have so many designs. Their range of leggings particularly impresses me, as the prints are bold, unique and colorful. I also really love their fabrics, especially the "freedom" range as there's nothing I've worn that beats the feeling of wearing one of their leggings! It's simply so silky and smooth, almost like a second skin.

I'd highly recommend you check out Liquido Active's range!

Best Leather Gift Ideas - DaniTruno Review

Hey everyone! Have you struggled to find the best leather gift ideas for this season? Have you wanted to give someone a special gift that will last for decades? Look no further, as I'm going to give you two lovely ideas for the next time you're in need to give someone something special. I want to talk about two accessories from DaniTruno, a lovely handmade leather accessories brand that is sells gorgeous, lovely leather products.

A bit about the brand- DaniTruno is a Ukraine-based leather brand founded by Dani, who specialises in creating leather crafts. They also have an Etsy shop which you can check out. Dani makes amazing leather crafts such as wallets, folders, belts and cases for everything you can think of. He is super talented and makes everything himself, and can even customise any leather accessory that you want. 

The first gift idea that I want to talk about is a leather card holder- such as this one from DaniTruno. Take a look below!

You know what's essential for university students like me? A wallet that is durable, stylish and easy to carry. Seriously, this is the best accessory that you can have- you can store your credit card and student card in the slits on the slits, and you never have to carry a proper wallet around with you all day. Who likes carrying wallets in their pockets anyways? They're bulky, heavy and gets in the way of everything. What's more, there are times when you just can't carry anything because- you don't have any pockets!

This leather cardholder is made from genuine calfskin leather. The brand has tanned and black versions of all their wallets, and also has different types depending on what size you want. I got this brown cardholder because of it's small size- I don't like those floppy wallets where you have to open and close it as they're too hefty and inconvenient.

My new wallet feels slick, smooth and perfect to touch- that's what leather's for! As well as the smooth touch, the wallet has a perfect fit - it fits within my pockets without any problems. I'm happy with my new cardholder since I can drop in and out of my pockets without worrying about whether it will fit or feel heavy. It would make such a lovely gift for anyone!

The next gift idea that you can get your loved ones is a Leather ring binder- such as this one that I've got. I purchased this binder as a gift for my father for father's day next month, and inside I placed copies of my important documents. I wanted it to contain the important documents inside, but not be so nice that we would never use it. The binder was great, as was the shipping and packaging. It came in a lovely box and looked elegant and gorgeous.

In terms of the quality, DaniTruno makes top-notch stuff as this leather ring binder was made of soft, warm calfskin which felt amazing to touch. I'm really not a fan of plastic binders as they break and feels flimsy. This substantial binder carries a lot of A4 papers without being too bulky or heavy, and can last for years to come. It's a staple for anyone working in an office, or studying at a university as it carries papers with a lot of swag and style. The craftsmanship of this folder is gorgeous and everything is made to perfection.

Overall, I'm very impressed with the quality and the craftsmanship of these lovely leather accessories.  DaniTruno makes some of the best leather gift ideas that you can get, and I'd highly recommend checking them out if you are in need of new gift ideas for your loved ones.
