JORD Watches: Go Green With Style

Filed under Jewelry & Accessories 

by Vie on April 7, 2014


I received a very nice gift from JORD a few weeks ago and I simply love it. Everywhere I go, I always get good compliments and everyone wants to know where I get my new watch from.

Before I start reviewing my watch, let me tell you a little bit about JORD and what makes them so unique and lovable. To be honest with you, I’m not so much of a wrist watch kind of girl, but after looking at JORD watches, I’m at awe because they’re all made of wood and that makes them so interesting and different. Not only the material that impresses me but also the sleek, sexy yet simple design. It’s pretty much a watch you can wear every day and at the same time on special occasions.

The JORD team was kind enough to let me pick my favorite style and I chose the Ely series, only because they look very sharp and I can just imagine how it will hold my wrist beautifully… and I was right! When the package arrived, I was so excited I couldn’t wait to resize and wear it right away (which I did the next day!)

Ely watch is made of natural wood with 4 choices available, the natural green & maple (like the one I have), black, cherry and maple. All look simply fantastic and to be honest with you, I had problems choosing just one so I let them decided for me and I’m very happy with mine. The Ely watch is very light and totally lovable – I wouldn’t recommend you to wear it when you’re under water as it will probably damage the beautiful wood and we wouldn’t want that now, would we?

Enough said, check out some of the pictures I took and get ready to fall in love!

If you’re one of those people who choose glasses over contact lenses, then you might find this information useful! I’m wearing glasses myself, especially when I have to drive at night and sometimes I do wonder why I can’t seem to put my glasses in comfortable and correct setting, even though I think everything is already checked and good.

That until I found these helpful tips and I simply can’t just ignore them. I need to share it with my lovely readers, so here it goes!

Fall in Love With the Queen: Cleopatra’s Gold

Filed under Beauty 

by Vie on January 22, 2014

One of my dream destinations is Egypt. This country has so many hidden and most exotic secrets, and to me it is something exciting and of course, breathtaking. When talking about Egypt, we definitely can’t count out the famous, lovely and amazing Cleopatra. For years, I have been in love with her makeup and now over a century later, her style and beauty still live on! One of the most distinguished look from Cleopatra’s eyes is the playful curves. I find them so sexy and alluring. To have a beautiful and flawless makeup like Cleopatra, there is only one rule (well make it two), you must be brave in playing with bold colors and eye-liner. Lots and lots of them. To create those smokey cat-eye look isn’t easy but that doesn’t mean it is impossible. What’s great about this type of makeup is that you can play with pretty much all colors, although blue, gold and purple are among the favorites. I don’t know about you but I’ve always thought Cleopatra = Gold. However, here are some of the looks that I think are amazing.

Who can forget the lovely Elizabeth Taylor in her superb Cleopatra role? For this, a combination of blue + grey blend so beautifully and to add up the dramatic look, you definitely need a Kajal eyeliner, which is the best choice to create intense and cat-eye impression. Brands like Bourjois, Guerlain offer best Kajal liners!

Now that we’ve seen the classic Cleopatra look, how about we move on to a more “modern” and daring ideas?

However, for those who are a bit more down-to-earth and would rather go for subtle yet still seductive, you can definitely go easy on the colors and focus more on the curves. Here are some of the looks that I love, that you can try day or night!

Cleopatra Makeup

As if you didn’t know already, I’m quite obsessed with this legend and I love pretty much everything about her. To me, Cleopatra is a symbol of womanhood and endless beauty. Not only that, she is also playful and at the same time, strong. I hope one day I will be able to visit her beautiful land and who knows maybe I will get lucky and get my make up done there! Anything about Cleopatra, I’m always up for it! Dresses, makeup, and even Cleopatra slot games!

So what do you think ladies, you think you’re ready to claim your inner-Cleopatra with me?

Tidebuy Reviews: Reasons Why I Love Maxi Dresses

Filed under Fashion 

by Vie on January 12, 2014

I’m a big fan of dresses, and lately I find myself wearing more maxi dresses. I love maxi dress for the instant feminine look. They accentuate the body and hug the figure just right. If you think that in order to look sexy you need to show more skin, then you are wrong. There are two types of maxi dresses, the loose or the body fitting type. You can also find so many different prints and colors, whether you’re an animal-print kinda girl or flowers/stripes,  maxi dresses are definitely a good choice for all seasons. Recently I found this website that offers a lot of good looking dresses with very affordable price. I’m proud to introduce Tidebuy to you, because now you can upgrade your style easily and at the same time, not spending that much.

Here are some of my favorites!

1. Bohemian/Paisley prints.

If you’re looking for something more glamorous but down to earth at the same time, you can go for bohemian/paisley prints because they serve the purpose right. I’m totally loving these three prints with different neck-style as well. What do you think, ladies? ready to add some drama to your fashion?

2. Plain Maxis.

Feeling less adventurous? then you should consider getting a plain maxi dress instead. You can always add a little bit of eye-catching accessories or find maxi dress with a little bit of fancy decorations such as ribbon hems and perhaps a little bit of lace! Then you’re closer to looking superb!

3. Animal prints.

The bold and the beautiful, that’s what animal print is all about. You may lay low on the accessories now because these prints are fancy enough and the last thing you want is to be a walking display.

So what do you think ladies, are you ready to be the most stylish one this year?

6 Things to do When You’re Alone on Christmas

Filed under News, Tips & Trends

When it comes to Christmas, we automatically think of warm and cozy feelings with family and friends. Unfortunately not all of us are lucky enough to celebrate this joyous season with them. Mostly it is due to distance and crazy air-fare tickets. Today I will give you ideas on how to still feel joyful even though you are far from your loved ones. Here are things I would do.

1. Watch Christmas movies.
Christmas Movies

There are so many good movies with Christmas theme. One of my all-time favorites is Love Actually. I have a ritual to watch this every Christmas whether I’m alone or with friends/family. Besides that, there’s also the classic It’s a Wonderful Life. I can never get enough of this black & white film.

2. Bake cookies or cake.
Christmas Cookies

Do it with all your heart and if you’re up for some challenge, make some decorations! Trust me, once they’re all done, you’ll be so satisfied and proud of what you can do! It is always fun to bake, you’ll be surprised at how creative you can be.

3. Christmas carolling.

If you love singing, why not share your beautiful voice by joining the carolling team? Not only will you be able to spread some joy, you’ll also have a good time getting out of the house! Who knows, you might meet your future bff  out there!

4. Wine by the fire.

It is nice to have alone time once in a while and Christmas can be a good time for it. Have a little bit of self-reflecting moments and just enjoy the quietness. Have a glass of wine and sit by the fire, learn to get to know yourself and enjoy your own company. Soon you’ll find peace and hopefully Christmas harmony.

5. Write real letters.
Letters

It’s been a long time since people do snail-mail, which is quite a shame. On Christmas, think of people you love the most and start writing them real letters. Not only will you feel good but they will also appreciate it very much.

6. Take some crazy pictures.
Self Picture

Put on some cheerful Christmas songs and snap some self-photos! Be as silly and as crazy as you can be and make yourself laugh! It’s a very fun and “healthy” thing to do.

There are so many things you can do, but those are my top 6 and I hope they help giving you ideas. However, if you’re still feeling mellow and sad, you can always email me! I’ll keep you company : )

Have a lovely Christmas, my lovely readers!
