Recipe For A Great Week || Links a la Mode

  Recipe for a great week begins with having a fulfilled weekend. Over the weekend, i had so much fun with friends…I was out all day on both Saturday and Sunday with a lot of food, music and laughter, what better way to start the week than reminiscing over the great times we’ve had together these past years of medical school and catching up on posts.   Check back for more of my weekend outing and outfit in the next blog post (on Wednesday). In the meantime, below are last week’s links a la mode roundup covering topics on food, fashion …

Products For Under Eye Dark Circles

  One of this week’s links a la mode posts was about makeup products for under eye dark circles. Neutralizers, correctors, concealers  and it got me thinking about products for under eye dark circles. Products to treat or get rid of the dark circles not just makeup products to cover them up.   I’ve not had any serious under eye dark circles but a friend has and we used just castor oil to get rid of them. She’s Asian, the effect was very obvious especially because her dark circles were more conspicuous than mine. Another oil that has worked for me …

The Pain That is Closet Organization

  Closet organization is one area that gives me headache till date. I love seeing well organized closets because they make selecting outfits a bit easier; the processes involved in the organization is where the headache begins. One of my aunties actually told me one day that it seems to be a problem passed down to the women of my family (my father’s part), lol we just hate folding or arranging our clothes, we will rather just dump them in one corner of the room till they are needed or someone else arranges them. Meanwhile my mum doesn’t mind spending …

Breaking Outdated Fashion Rules

  Breaking outdated fashion rules was one of the topics in last week’s Ifb links a la mode featuring my post on How to create collage with Photoshop. The post wasn’t exactly about breaking fashion rules in general but about breaking the author’s fashion rule of always buying certain fashion pieces in black. It got me thinking of all the fashion rules that have been set and broken over the years. Flash back to few years ago, would teenagers or a 20-something year old even consider a flare jeans outfit or wide leg pants outfit as stylish?    There was a time matching colors in …

Learning is Constant – IFB Links A La Mode

  Learning is constant in our lives even when we aren’t students at college, we will always be students of life. Learning is one thing that isn’t always planned. We learn from our surroundings, from experiences, from other people and nowadays, thanks to the internet you can find a tutorial to almost anything you want to know. Talking of finding tutorials for everything, I’ve been searching for a way to get my featured image or the first image in my post’s rss to display alongside excerpts on blogger dashboard. While i’m no longer using blogger, i still have my feed …

The Art Of Recognizing Fabrics

   The art of recognizing fabrics isn’t something i posses or particularly pay attention to. I mean,  i can recognize some fabrics but there are a whole lot of fabrics out there that i know because i see them often but have no idea what they are called. You might be wondering why i chose to talk about recognizing fabrics on the blog today. I recently read a post on how to fix a boucle snag in last week’s Ifb links a la mode (which featured my post on how to use an editorial calendar to improve your blog).   Honestly, i …

Post Valentine – Let’s Talk Style Icons

  Style icons – I bet you have a few running through your mind right now. Truth is, the phrase “style icon” is one of the overused phrases in fashion, what does it even mean? If you look around on the internet, you will see style icon defined as – a person who is highly fashionable and/or a person who is popularly known for their sense of style. To me, a style icon is a person who is able to influence people’s style with their own personal style.   There was a hot debate on the internet sometime in 2014  regarding New York …

Fashion Books and Fashion Films – Are they Necessary or Overhyped?

  Fashion books and fashion films aren’t new to any of us. From time to time we see post roundups on fashion books to read, fashion films to watch and so on. Honestly, i haven’t read any fashion book before but if i’m to pick up one right now, it will definitely be How to be Parisian and this is mainly because the book is very popular meaning it’s probably a good read, it covers more topics than fashion only and i also like the minimalist cover. I will probably also consider the #girlboss book just because i like any …
