October Fragrances: All About Pink!

Filed under Beauty 

by Vie on October 1, 2013

When it comes to October, 3 colors come to mind — pink, orange and black. Pink for the breast cancer awareness and orange black for Halloween. Since it’s still the beginning of the month, I figure it will be fun to talk more about pink because being a girly girl is always a pleasure. Today I’m going to specifically talk about new fragrances, and I’m sure you’re gonna love them because not only are the packaging super sweet, but the scents are also amazingly great. Here are some of my favorite selections!

October Pink Fragrances

1. Jimmy Choo Exotic 3.3oz. US$88.
Not only is he good with shoes, but he’s also good in fragrances. Beautifully packed and inspired by the colorful python skins, this special fragrance is created for strong independent women who are free-spirited and confident. This fragrance is a natural blend of Blackcurrant Sorbet, Pink Grapefruit, Tiger Orchid, Exotic Passion Flower, Tart Raspberry, Patchouli. He certainly doesn’t name it Exotic for nothing ; )

2. One Direction Our Moment 3.4oz. US$59.50.
Love their music, love their scent. I’m talking about this well-established band that’s recently released their very own fragrance. Dedicated to all fun and cheerful ladies out there, enjoy this gorgeous mixture of Pink Grapefruit, Wild Berries, Red Currant, Jasmine, Freesia, Frangipani, Musk, Sheer Woods, White Patchouli. Just one spray and it’s “What Makes You Beautiful” ; )

3. Lancome La Vie est Belle 1.7oz. US$85.
What makes this fragrance so special is not only the pretty bottle and the scent but also the fact that it’s a glitter perfume! How cool is that! We have seen a lot of glitter body lotion, but glitter perfume? Not so much! La Vie est Belle is beautifully made of iris and patchouli with a hint of sweet gourmand. Life is beautiful, indeed!

4. Coach Poppy Freesia Blossom 3.4oz. US$85.
This perfume was released a while ago and I just needed to include this because this cute little bottle is simply amazing. If you’re a floral and also a fruity kinda girl, you will definitely enjoy this soft breeze from Poppy Freesia, because they got the best of both worlds! Say hello to Bergamot, Cassis, Raspberry, Mara Strawberry natureprint®, Apricot, Star Jasmine, White Orchid, Tiare Tahiti natureprint®, Freesia, Vanilla, Brown Sugar, and Musk.

5. Kenzo Couleur Pink 1.7oz. US$64.
I’ve always loved Kenzo fragrances. As a matter of fact, one of my favorite scents is Flower by Kenzo. Not only do they come in super adorable bottle, but they smell so refreshing too. And now, Kenzo has a newbie named Couleur Pink and I certainly can’t wait to try it! Expect delicate scent of Rose, Angelica Seed, and Saffron from this elegant bottle.

6. Victoria’s Secret Victoria Eau de Parfum. US$68.
I’m also a big fan of Victoria’s Secret perfumes. They’re so feminine and fun at the same time, which is why I’m so curious to try this new Victoria perfume, especially since they described it as “A sparkling blend of red berries, Victoria rose and crème brûlée”. Another floral fruity to spray, ladies!

Spring 2014 RTW is all about mellow in yellow and today I’ll share fun and fancy looking collection from Moschino Cheap and Chic. Still showcasing fun and cheerful sunshine color, Moschino takes “Barbie goes to Miami Basel” as their theme and as you can see, it’s all about having fun with your girlfriends in pool while enjoying delicious cocktails. You’ll find not only yellow but also different types of happy colors such as pink, orange and blue. Plain, plaid, words and plants… they have it all, and of course we can’t forget the flirty little feathers and super cute flamingos!

VieCouture Style Focus: Watches

Filed under Jewelry & Accessories 

by Vie on September 17, 2013

With so many advanced and hi-tech gadgets in the market, more and more ladies leave their watch at home, because they can check the time on their phone, iPad or other smart devices. Little do they know that watch is considered to be a prime accessory. Not only for the functionality but also for the fashion value. This gives me enough reason to make watches as the style focus for today, and I have Ernest Jones to thank to. This UK based company offers more than just designer watches but also high quality jewelry. So here are some of good looking watches that I find from the site, watches so divine you can wear them day or night.

1. Fun and Fancy.

If you consider yourself a fun and fancy kind of girl, you should go for a strap/leather watch. Take these watches for example, Vivienne Westwood, Folli Follie and Marc Jacobs — not only do they look fashionably stylish but at the same less formal, which is the look you want to achieve. Such a perfect sidekick for your daily activities!

2. Formal and Elegant.

Nothing beats formal and elegant than a good shine of gold and silver, which is why you would want to circle these watches if that’s the case. I like Tissot for the unique circle chains, Folli Follie for the glamorous pave crystals and DKNY for the soft and elegant rose gold color. They blend beautifully in your office meetings or high-end parties.

3. Smart and Casual.

Going casual is always a smart choice, especially if you look for comfort. For this type of style, you can count on these 3 designers to bring you not only fashion but also function. That’s right ladies, these watches serve their purpose right — giving you daily comfort and at the same time, bring out the high-style in you.

Oatmeal Magic: Say Goodbye to Your Rashes

Filed under Beauty 

by Vie on September 16, 2013

A few weeks ago, I had serious rashes on my face — particularly on my cheeks. I wasn’t really sure what caused them, whether it was sunburn or others. I refused to go and see doctors because I know they will prescribe me some anti-biotics and soothing cream. Since I’m more of a natural kinda girl, I did some research on safe and natural remedy for rashes and found several recommendations; aloe vera, vitamin E, and oatmeal came on top of the list. So I decided to go for oatmeal because they’re easy to find and relatively cheap. After applying the oatmeal mask for about a week, my rashes are totally gone. Natural remedies may take more time to work but the result would be amazing and normally they don’t have any side effect, which is good!

Oatmeal

So, here’s what you do:

1. Scoop 3 tea-spoons of oatmeal in your bowl and pour a little bit of hot water.
2. Stir it up evenly and make sure it’s not too watery or too thick.
3. Wait until it cools off to room temperature.
4. Apply the oatmeal on the rashes area and wait for 10-15 minutes.
5. Wipe them gently and rinse with clean water.

I started doing this twice a day — in the morning and in the evening and trust me, ladies, you won’t believe how amazing the result is and judging from the time-frame I had, it only took me a week to get my smooth skin back. Not bad at all, right?

Casino Royale: How to Look Like a Casino Goddess

Las Vegas TV Series

If there’s one TV series that I never get tired of, it will be Las Vegas. Not only do they have drama, romance and action, but also a few tricks and tips on gaming and gambling. However, the fun doesn’t end there, you are also offered with fabulous fashion and beautiful people. So if you plan on going out for a casino night, you can definitely learn a thing or two from this show. And if Las Vegas isn’t enough for you, there’s always James Bond movies that offer you brilliant casino fashion. Take the classic 1971 “Diamonds are Forever” or the newer Bond in 2006’s “Casino Royale” for example. Low-cut dresses, elegant hairdo and some serious looking jewelry. May I say that the Bond girls looked absolutely stunning.

Diamonds Are Forever 1971

So, it’s obvious that there’s a lot to talk about when it comes to casino fashion and today I’m gonna give you a little bit of recommendations on what to wear. As we all know, there are different types of casinos. Those with the casual/smart dresscode and those who only welcome formal dresses and suits. If you like playing dress up, then go for the high-end formal casinos.

Ladies, this is the time when you want to look as glamorous as possible, because casino is not just about the game, it’s a lifestyle and a place where you can show off your high-fashion trend, think of this as one of those red-carpet moments. So, I would recommend you wearing your famous cocktail dress and color your lips red (if possible). Another thing you would want to consider is definitely some eye-catching jewelry and accessories. So if you decide to go for your classic little black dress, do yourself a favor and crown your neck with some shiny blings. However, bear in mind that you shouldn’t give yourself too much stress when dressing up, because the purpose of going out to a casino is to have a good time. And remember one of the golden rules in fashion — less is more! you’re not a walking mannequin, so do not overdress yourself. Be elegant and at the same time, approachable. Here are some of the examples I would go for:
