Trends This Summer: Unique Wooden Watches by JORD

Hey! Hope you are still enjoying your summer time! (In Melbourne we are still suffering from the wind tho) This time I shot my OOTD in a 60s American restaurant in Melbourne called Soda Rock Diner. Can’t tell how much I love the retro vibe there and it totally matches with my outfit! What is more, this time I am holding a GIVEAWAY collaborating with JORD watches. Their minimalist while classic design is such a perfect match of my retro outfit, and the wooden material also bring up the summer mood! Let’s see how it works!

The watch I am wearing is from the CASSIA series, I chose the Walnut & Vintage Rose color as it brings more vintage feelings while the wooden texture kind of reminds me of sandalwood: one of my favourite scent ūüôā The full Roman numeral concave dial in the is beautifully reflected in the domed sapphire glass. The metal and wood link interlaced band integrates seamlessly into the rounded case. What is more, JORD provides engraving service for every watch sold, they are just trying best to make your watch unique ūüôā

Summer, Summer, Summer

My life in the past three months are packed with chaos, excitement, worries… good things and bad things came together and I had to make more efforts to settle and calm down than usual. I mean, it’s not my very first time moving to a new place and start a new life (actually I moved quite frequently these years), but it is the time that I came to a place with so many pressure behind me with an unknown future. I am at that awkward age that can no longer call myself a kid who has plenty of time to waste, but in a new place, there is very little I can do. 2017 is kind of an exhausting year, I realised that I become lazier to pick up the things I love such as blogging, photography and lots of other new things. Sometimes I am afraid of being a boring person but there are already so many things are taking up my time and exhausting me from the inside. I think that is the¬† post-graduation syndrome they called.

I am that kind of people whose emotion can easily be affected by weather, so I kept wondering if moving to Melbourne (the weather here is just like London you know) is a correct decision for me. But thinking of the silver lining: it’s still summer here, so I literally have spent my 2017 with sunshine, beaches and tropical greenery ūüôā Happy 2018 to you all and let’s have a great year ahead.

OOTD: Let’s cross the sea

Long time no see, and belated congratulations to my 1-year-old blog FASHIONMIMO!!!

I started my half-year internship one month ago, right after I came back in HK.¬†As¬†a newbie in PR industry, everyday¬†is a challenge, plus my bloody insomnia came back to visit me again… Recently I really have that feeling that maybe I will be able to write¬†something like Eat Pray Love after this period. Yeah you could expect my next post will be all about meditation, yoga and stress relief…

Photo journey: The last week in Lion City

Still can’t believe that I’m already¬†flying back¬†and about¬†to have my half-year internship. I don’t know how to conclude my 4-month exchange life (or say 4-month vacation) but Singapore has been treating me so good. I won’t forget all those crazy but awesome things happened here ūüôā

Even though¬†I always grumble¬†about how boring the life here is (I’m sorry haha), I realized there are still lots of things haven’t done when I was about to leave. So I used my last 7 days¬†here to explore more great spots in the Lion City.

So¬†regret that I’ve just discovered Bukit Timah at the last moment! Those restaurants, the saddle club and the floral market… and I spent a really good night at Tin Hill Social last Friday. They have several¬†indoor/outdoor areas for dining and bar. It would be so relaxing¬†to chill at the outdoor area with live band at night ūüôā (@Fashionmimo)

City Hall is another great spot that I didn’t explore much before. Especially the Raffles Hotel and the Chijmes: historical buildings with fine restaurants. If you are a tourist and are looking for something about the “old” Singapore, you can’t miss it! (@Fashionmimo)

Denim X Denim

Recently I found out some old pics about Denim. It was 2014 when I shot some pics for my layout design assignment and till today I still find these outfits interesting.

I always believe that if you wanna wear denim smart, just wear it on another denim! BUT! Just be aware of the colors and designs of your denim clothes, I don’t suggest you pairing your loose shirt and loose pants together…cuz sometimes it could be really awful… (@Fashionmimo)

OOTD: les cheveux court

First post in October! Just realised that there are only 3 months left for this year, it’s just too fast!¬†I keep wondering why time passes much much faster now than when I was a kid, anyone feels the same?

In order to get rid of my tangled long hair and to welcome the upcoming turtule-neck season(:D), I cut my long hair short. And¬†have to say, it’s super cool to have a carefree and neat hairstyle! Especially good for those¬†mornings when I gotta rush to class after maybe like 4 hours sleep, I don’t even need a comb ūüėÄ

It rained a lot in Hong Kong these days, then after this maybe we will eventually have the cool autumn. So let’s see what my OOTD is for the pre-fall weather.

Shirt from M&S, pencil skirt from ZARA. Heeled sandals and clutch are from MOUSSY. (@Fashionmimo)

Maybe some would ask: WHY pencil skirt AGAIN?? Well, I have to apologise for my pencil-skirt fetish(lol) but I’m always in love with their nice cutting!

IMG_8031

This time I chose a longer one with side slits. The thick fabric brings more vintage feelings to the whole look. (@Fashionmimo)

Also I need some petit flowers to avoid being dull, ring and necklace are both from the french brand Les Nereides. (@Fashionmimo)

OOTD: Summer Outfits

It has always been a problem to¬†cool myself down under the sticky hot weather. You know, no one¬†would¬†really care about what you’re wearing¬†when it’s above 30 degrees Celsius all the time. When everyone is stinky and sticky then you realise¬†FASHION is not needed anymore (laugh).

Just kidding, I still need to blog¬†and THANK YOU¬†Alison and Tori for modeling this time ūüėÄ Wondering if there’s anyone like us struggling in the hot weather, let’s talk about our summer outfits! To be neat and comfortable, that’s my summer dressing rule.

The cold colored denim and the white dress could be a good match. (@Fashionmimo)

Peach Smokey Eyes

This time Alison shows her summer time makeup about peach smokey eyes.

Inspired by the floral makeup looks in bridal runway shows, the light coral/ peach/violet colors could be a new attempt for everyday makeup.

There are only two¬†points¬†to notice: 1. rather than earthy smokey eyes, it highlights the “light” and “sweet” concepts, so try to avoid thick eyeliner. 2.For a runway makeup, the glow and light skin tone is truly important. In this case¬†luminous foundation and simmer stick could improve the dull complexion.

As you see, despite the eyeshadows, we put more efforts on the primer, foundation and highlighter. For everyday makeup, we don’t want to make it too heavy, so the right products seem to be more important to brighten the skin tone.

Spring Look in 10 mins

This time my friend Alison would share her SUPER EASY make-up video about how to look natural/fresh in spring time.

Wondering if the cherry blossom is still blooming?  Then why not put some light pink on your face to make it glow, too?

#Brightness is the whole concept of this look,¬†I feel blessed to have a highlight stick with me, it’s super powerful:)
