I know it's supposed to be summer, but on this part of the world where I am, I would be crazy to wear shorts. Oh well, on the good side I had a lovely bowl of hot soup. Guess there's always a balance to life.

julia roberts x mario sorrenti for w magazine

Love this Mario Sorrenti cover for W of Julia Roberts - amazing!

beauty most wanted

I'm not really a make-up person, if I can go by the day without anything on my face except serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen I would totally go for it. For days that require makeup here's some of my beauty must-haves.

Makeup: NARS blush in Orgasm, Smashbox Photofinish Foundation Primer, Aesop Rosehip Lip Cream, Tom Ford lipsticks

Skincare: Anything Origins, Aveda Foot Relief, Aveda Body Moisturizer, Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion, face masks

Haircare: Anything Nioxin, Aveda Rosemary Mint shampoo

Still in the midst of looking for a good concealer and a new fragrance. Wish me luck!

warm clothings, please

I have a really bad habit of underestimating the Europe weathers. Gosh, I really need to stop bringing thin clothings and stock up on my winter clothings before I catch another crazy cold. It's funny how I never forget to bring my trusty sunglasses. It's not only a great accessory but it shields my eyes from the sun and crazy wind! It's Sunday over here and all the shops are closed. Boo to me but yay for you because I'll be able to update my blog. Ps. Doesn't Claudia look great here, I think she's just stunning.

Okay, I bought this amazing apple strudel tart (baked fresh daily and runs out uber fast!) from Maelu, and Blake is making me feel like I might have to reconsider my eating choices.


Hello from Munich, Germany. Enjoyed the day strolling Marienplatz and Maximilian Street for some light shopping. The day ended with a rather delighting discovery within the vicinity - a beer and sausage garden that the locals go to for a quick bite. Where are you this weekend?

como shambhala, bali

The one annoying thing about me is that I just can't stay put in one place. I have to leave, somewhere, anywhere. This brings me to this post - an escapade - the kind of holiday that doctors would probably recommend. I fondly remember chatting with this lady on a flight (looking pretty fit mind you) about her trip to Sri Lanka for a yoga retreat and I thought hmm that would be nice - the concept of just packing up my bag (more like) bags and head for a retreat (somewhere, anywhere concept) and "escape" the world for a few days or a week.

Due to my tight schedule, I would prefer somewhere close by and while googling I found this amazing place - COMO Shambhala, a private estate located amidst the serenity of Bali’s stunning landscape near Ubud - a sustainable and holistic retreat that takes rest and relaxation to a whole new meaning. Absolutely breathtaking! I'll see you soon or a next best version of you soon.
