White lilies

White lilies remind me of my mum.  They are her favourite flowers and growing up, I remember how she would always pick up a bouquet from Woolies every other week.  We didn't have a huge space, but I loved the way white lilies would instantly brighten up our home.  To me, it was her signature touch.  Mum's favourite lily variety are tiger lilies.  I actually find the name to be quite fitting with who she represents as a person.  She wasn't a traditional asian tiger mom, per se, but - for anyone who has met my mum, she is the tiniest person who looks extremely soft and dainty from the outside, but intensely full of fire and strength within.

To be soft, but strong: because so much of life is characterized by supple softness, growth, and the ability to adapt.  By watching my mum, that's ultimately what she has taught me to aspire to become.

No matter how old you get, never lose your sense of wonder.  

I recently collaborated with Macy's to showcase their new line inspired by Alice Through the Looking Glass, just in time for the new movie! These were some of my favourite pieces from the new collection.  I older I get, the more difficult it is for me to actually find fun t-shirts that I actually like... Maybe that's why I end up shopping in the kiddies department sometimes?? But honestly, no matter age you are, when you find t-shirts looking as cute as Alice + Cheshire Cat, you'd be down to take on your summer adventures in these cute Alice tees, too!

They say your skin is your canvas and make-up is simply a way to look and feel like yourself, but simply more confident.  That's why I'm collaborating with Bobbi Brown and Macy's to show you the secret to beauty… By simple being who YOU are.  Most days, all I need are a few dabs of my Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick (in Natural 4) and a dash of lip color.  Pair it with Bobbi Brown lipstick in Carnation and you have the perfect, fresh faced, girl next door look in seconds. 

Honestly speaking, I rarely ever wear a face full of foundation.  I usually use my foundation stick to touch up on problem areas the same way I would use a concealer, but I really like how this product also allows me to layer the formula depending on the amount of coverage I need on my skin, from spot treating to full coverage.  The compact nature of this foundation stick is perfect for my on the go lifestyle - I never have to worry about it leaking or getting confiscated at airports while travelling.  It's the perfect formula that blends flawlessly without ever masking my skin.

Natural, simple and effortless.  Find #YourPerfectMatch at Macy's.
