My Big Fat Choker Haul - Born Pretty Review

I've lately been obsessed with chokers - they're stylish, cool and give off a really rocker/ edgy/ sexy vibe without being too overly done. They're also super versatile and can be worn with pretty much anything- deep-V cuts, high-neck sweaters- you name it, chokers will go with it. Seriously, they're my favourite pieces of jewellery lately and I have been looking online for different styles that may suit me (for more, see my Instagram).

Born Pretty store, a super affordable and cheap jewellery shop, sells a TON of choker necklaces for a really affordable price. I am not exaggerating- the chokers they sell go for around $1-4 USD and that's really affordable for such a delicate and beautiful piece of jewellery. I went a bit crazy and bought 5-6 chokers from their site, all for under $10. Can you believe it?

Here's what I got, and what I thought of the quality of these gems.

From top to bottom: 

What can I say? These chokers are fantastic quality, beautifully designed and exceeded all my expectations. I ordered them without really any knowledge in chokers, nor have I worn any before. However, after receiving my Bornpretty haul, I became officially addicted to choker necklaces. They're really well-made, light and delicate. None of them were cheap or loose, or broken at all, and all were in perfect condition when they arrived.

I'm most in love with the Black Lace Choker and my Brown Leather choker- these two pieces stood out for me, since they're special. The black lace choker was only around $2-$3, and it was SO beautiful and delicate. In fact, it looks super stylish with a black top or something dark. It's also a bit gothic, which I really like. I also love my brown leather choker since it's very unique and interesting- I received so many compliments asking where I got the necklace, and it goes well with my brown V-neck sweater.

The other chokers were pretty and cute too- I like the dual-layer choker since it's a bit more fancy and elegant. It would go well with a blouse, or something white. I also like how there's hundreds of choker styles for you to choose from on Born Pretty's website. I absolutely love their choker trends, which are all hip and cool.

I highly recommend buying chokers from Born Pretty store- I've been shopping from them for nearly 2-3 years now and they never fail to disappoint me. They're definitely my to-go place for jewellery.

Top 5 Laundry Tips For Cleaning Work Out Clothes

After getting done with your fitness regime, you feel refreshed, energized, and accomplished. But when it comes to putting those sweaty workout clothes in the laundry, sometimes no amount of washing seems to remove the smell from tees and sweatpants. 

Here we have a few tips on getting the smell out of sweat out of your workout clothes.

1. Avoid sitting around with gym clothes on: You gym wear is certainly not just comfortable but those neon colored clothes certainly make you look cute. Obviously, you might find it fun lazying around in them. But wearing your sweaty gym clothes for hours together harbors bacteria, leaving you at risk for infections. Take them off once your done with working out!

2. Hang them Dry after taking them off: Before putting off your gym gear into the laundry basket or into your gym bag, make sure you dry hang them for a while, as soon as you return home from the sweaty workout session. This will do wonders in extending it’s life span.

3. Pre-treat them: Soak them in a mixture of vinegar & water for about 30 minutes before washing. This will keep your gym wear fresh and flunk free!

4. Wash with hot water: Turn your workout clothes inside out before placing them in the washer and use the hottest water that the fabrics can tolerate. 

5. Hang it under the Sun: After washing, rinse and hang them out to dry in the bright sunlight. This helps remove all odors and smells in a natural way.

Alternatively you can always dump them off to one of the online Laundry services, like LaundroKart who do free pick-up and deliver for your laundry.  Get more Info about Laundrokart.com here. 


Stay fit and happy gymming! 

Introducing Bidvine- the fastest way to get services

Ever wanted someone to teach you piano lessons, or clean your house but can't find anyone in a short amount of time? Have no fear- for there's a new platform in town that helps you do just this. Bidvine is a new London-based local services app, which connects customers with the right service providers.

How it works- imagine you need a service like housecleaning, but you just don't want to use classifieds or am too lazy to look around the internet for services. Bidvine allows you to submit a request for services after answering a series of short questions, and then it spins your request out there and let private service providers or individuals submit their price to you. It's a bit like Tinder but for local services instead.



To try it out, I've decided to request for piano lessons in my local area. The user-friendliness of the site is amazing- I simply had to answer a few questions on my preference and what my requirements was, and then a request was submitted to their website. It was simple, quick and efficient. I'm waiting for quotes to arrive, but it updates me as quotes come along via email and even text.

Once matched, all you have to do is contact the professional, and then they match you up and voila- it's all done. They even have recommendations for the other services that they provide, such as interior painting, guitar lessons, wedding DJ, steam cleaning, massage, nutritionist, portrait photography and more. It's a faster way to get services for a cheaper price. You can even review the service online, similar to review systems on Tripadvisor or Airbnb, to make sure the sellers are credible.

I would recommend this service to people who want a quick and efficient way to find services. For students like me who are freshly at university and want someone fast and close by to help me do something, or teach me something, this app is the way to go. It's also sort of fun too, to be receiving quotes and to be able to compare prices from everyone.

Overall, it's a simple and easy to use platform, and quite an innovative one I must say!

Jumpsuit Wishlist 2016 - StyleWe

All I want for Christmas is… Jumpsuits! There's a hot new shop in town and it's called StyleWe.com -  they sell a more high-end sort of clothing (including loads of jumpsuit styles) which gives off a more sophisticated and elegant look. They're definitely not the cute sort of shop, which means that I will definitely be buying from them soon since I'm in need of more clothes. In fact, StyleWe has a lot of cool jumpsuits and playsuits, which means that I've been recently browsing on their site A LOT.

Jumpsuits are a versatile style because they're the easiest way to look stylish without any thinking. Let's face it, we all want to look stylish, and sometimes pairing items in your closet is just…hard. I'm lazy to pair up outfits sometimes. With a jumpsuit (usually longer on the sleeves or the pants) or a playsuit (usually short-sleeved) it's like you can be effortlessly chic in an instant. Your whole outfit is already put together since they're already matching.

The only thing bad about jumpsuits is the fact that taking them off is a hassel- if I had to go to the toilet I'd have to take everything off! But regardless, I think it's worth the trouble, especially if you have a formal event to go to and want to try a jumpsuit for a change instead of dresses.

Here are my top 3 jumpsuits from StyleWe- and ones that I'd love to have for my Christmas stockings!

5 Christmas Wardrobe Essentials 2016- Gearbest Wishlist

Hey lovelies! It's finally December and I'm slaving away at my internship back home. Since I've got a spare moment here and there (and my internship isn't that busy) I've decided that the best way to waste time is to go online shopping since it's nearly Christmas! This means that it's time to change my wardrobe and stock up on cheesy clothes.

Recently I've been liking the shop Gearbest, a huge shop that sells pretty much everything you need (including clothes, technology, apparel, jewellery and household items). They're currently having a gigantic Christmas promotion so I've decided to make a wish list of what I want from their shop, as well as what to wear for Christmas.

1. Christmas sweater - you can't escape the typical "ugly" christmas sweater during this festive season. No matter if you're a guy or a girl, you will definitely be in place to get a few of these babies. I'm definitely getting some of these for my boyfriend since he'd look cute and cheesy as heck in some of these darling sweaters. They're funny, sweet and kinda …. Christmassy.


2. Stockings- if you're anything like me and hate trousers, you'd be well placed to buy a few pair of stockings for the cold winter months. Since Christmas is around the corner, why not try something a bit more fancy and cute? There are specially made christmas stockings up on the market, and trust me they're super funny and cute

3. Red Dress - the statement piece for girls who love partying during this christmas season, a red dress will make you stand out from the crowd. Go for something more bling and sparkly, such as a sequinned dress or something bright red to live up to the christmas cheer!


4. Cute Boot Cuffs - what's better than boot cuffs to cheer yourself up this Christmas? Add some colour in your boots by wearing a pair of boot cuff socks with a christmassy pattern, which will add some cuteness to your outfit. It's also a great way to stay warm during the colder months!


5. Christmas Socks - when it comes to socks, nothing is more cheesy and cute than a pair of colorful snowman socks, or something christmas-like in design. I love christmas socks since it cheers whoever is wearing it up, and they also make excellent gifts!



Hope you have a great time shopping for Christmas goodies!

Wedding Dress Wishlist 2016

One of my best friends recently got married, and I can't believe it because she might be holding a wedding party soon! It's the first time anyone I know has gotten married, so I'm quite surprised to be honest. I'm getting old… and it's time people started settling down. I recently came across a beautiful site called Amandadress, and they sell the most gorgeous and stylish Cheap Elegant Wedding Dresses that you can imagine. I thought, what if I get married? What dress will I want?

I think I'd go for something elegant and classy to suit my normal style. I'm not one to reveal too much skin or anything, but I'll settle for something more modest but sensual at the same time. I like these wedding dresses best from their site:


The last dress I picked is particularly suitable for a beach wedding. The shop has loads of special Beach wedding dresses which are shorter in length (to avoid the sand and water) and also so girly at the same time. I love lace so much- it's one of my favourite materials and ever since I've gotten older, I just fell in love with lace more and more.

What do you think of my picks?

Prom Dresses

Are you looking for a dress for a special event? Watching your budget? Dressfashion is a great site that sells lots of cheap formal dresses, ranging from Cheap Prom Dresses  to wedding dresses. If you're looking for something sultry and sexy, look no further than the site- because they have literally thousands and thousands of dresses for you to choose from.

Prom dresses in particular are hard to buy because of the fitting and design. For the fit, you don't know whether it fits you right or whether the style fits your particular body type. For the design, you can't really choose the perfect design out of hundreds and hundreds of choices. But their shop makes things much easier- for starters they have a returns service which means that you can always return the dresses that you don't like.






For the design, they provide many for you to choose from but it's all sorted into categories so it's easy to use and find. The dresses also are custom made for your measurements, and you can get the dress in roughly 20 working days, which is quite fast.

Check their store out!

I received two pieces of jewellery from them to give my honest thoughts, and I'm pleased to say that I'm totally in love with my new accessories. The first thing I got was a rather delicate bangle bracelet which was in Rose Gold color (one of my favourite colors of all time, because it's so girly and feminine) and it's so easy to slip on and off because it's flexible. I love how delicate their designs are- the bracelet is really thin but stands out on your wrist, and also has beautiful details on the clasps in the end. It's such an exquisite piece and looks great on literally any outfit. 

The second piece of jewellery was beautifully designed- it was a 3-piece embellished ring with little diamonds all along the ring. I've never seen this design before, and it looks gorgeous on my finger! It looks like one piece, but is actually three gorgeous thin rings. Again, I'm impressed by their design and quality- it's top-notch and stunning. I reckon it's one of the best rings I've ever owned since it's super comfortable, fits right on my finger, and is so shiny and sparkly that it lights up the room. 

Overall, I'm so happy with their delivery speed (fast) and their packaging. As you can see, they came in really classy boxes with ribbons and a black cushion to support the jewellery. I told my boyfriend that this would make a perfect gift from men to their significant others, and it's so true! I think as a girl, I'd love to receive a Libby May London piece for my birthday or anniversary, since they're definitely on the middle/ high end of jewellery. 

Register for 10% off their line on their site today, and don't forget to check out their social media for more lovely jewellery! They have a lovely Instagram feed, and I'm a huge fan of their posts.

Personalized Cupcake topper - Christmas Party Ideas

I recently have been planning a Christmas party with my friends and I wanted to do something a bit more original and unique. It's always the boring christmas pies and mulled wine, and I needed an idea to make our party different from all the others out there.

I decided to make personalised cupcakes for all my friends. My Cupcake Toppers is a lovely little UK company that specialises in making personalised, festive cupcake toppers for all occasions. You can shop from pre-made and designed cupcake toppers, or upload your own photo to put on your cake.

Their website is super easy to use. You simply upload a photo and then choose from a variety of shapes and sizes. You can also choose different types of paper to print your design on, including rice paper and pre-cut papers. They have designs relating to computer games, christmas, festive seasons, film and TV and special occasions. You can even print your company or business logo on the cupcakes, so they're perfect for business events. Best of all, they're all edible so you can gulp them all up!

So without further ado, here's my cupcake toppers on some cute cupcakes. They're a little bit different from the photos that I uploaded as the colors are a bit faded, but overall, I think there's definitely no problem in the printing. I mean, the best part is that you can totally use these toppers to decorate anything, even cakes or larger desserts like panacotta or creme brûlée!

YoShop Christmas Wishlist- Super Fun Shopping App

I'm absolutely loving Yoshop- a new shopping app which you can download from iTunes. They're an interactive online shop where you can play games to get discount codes, lower the price of an item and also to get super awesome bargains, including items for as low as $0.99 if you get enough of your friends to "drive" down the prices. Honestly, their little app is awesome because you can browse for thousands of items straight from your phone, which is always a plus side since it's so convenient.

Yoshop also has a Community section, where you get to interact with other users on the app by posting photos and reviews. Each post can get a huge number of LIKES and comments, so it's kinda like Facebook but for fashion. Isn't it a great concept?

I've picked some of my favourite pieces of clothing from their shop for you, so you can see the range of items they have in store. I've actually ordered from Yoshop before and did a review HERE, so do go and read it as it's completely my point of view. I'm surprised by their quality and customer service, as it's surprisingly good!

Fashionmia Dress Review and Vlog

Fashionmia never fails to disappoint me- this is the second time I've ordered from their online shop and I have to say, I'm very pleased with my new navy wrap dress. In fact, it's the perfect summer dress- casual, thin, light and not see through- which is fantastic because I hate it when dresses I buy online are too shin and you can see your underwear through it. This fashion clothing dress from Fashionmia is perfection- I look much slimmer in it, and it is definitely perfect for the summer months despite it being long-sleeved.


I absolutely adore their clothing- my tip for shopping online is that you have to read the specifications carefully, and remember to pick out the materials that are high-quality, rather than something lightweight and cheap. However, their prices are affordable and they do sell really cheap dresses in the price sense. I'd recommend going for materials such as Rayon, Dacron or Jacquard, rather than say Cotton Blend or Polyester, because those are usually cheaper and less firm.

I made a video review of it - completely honest thoughts girls!

My Christmas Earrings - Bornpretty Haul

It's finally the end of November, my dears, and it's time for some lovely earrings haul. I recently bought some cute earrings from Bornpretty, a really great jewellery store that I've been shopping from for the past few years. Yes- I'm their loyal customer- they're so cheap and affordable and they have hundreds of beautiful, dazzling accessories for show. Seriously, check their range out and you'll know what I mean! I bought around 4-5 pairs below, and a cool Galaxy ring which I fell in love with when I saw it on their site. 

Bornpretty are having a Black Friday sale, so they're lowering prices drastically. In fact, their earrings are really affordable to start with- they cost around $1-$4 USD per earring. They ship worldwide for free- and there's no minimum order at all for free shipping. This is super convenient for people like me, who hates paying for shipping. Don't you think shipping costs are always not worth it?

My favourite earrings from my Christmas haul is probably the cute cat earrings and the elephant earrings. I love little animals on my ears, because they're really cute and charming. In fact, I'm going back to my home over Christmas and meeting my boyfriend, so I'm quite excited for this. I'd have to look extra good, so I'm definitely wearing my elephant earrings when I'm back home.



What do you think of my earrings?
