Disconnect: Solange Knowles + Alan Ferguson


The very first thing I did when I saw Solange Knowles' wedding photos was to text my brother Charles:
"When I get married, I want to be as bad-ass as Solange."
Bad-ass is definitely an understatement.

Happiness: Ran Hwang's Becoming Again


Concluding this year's theme of "Transition", I had the pleasure of attending the launch of Becoming Again last November 6 at Third Floor Hermès.

The most beautiful oftentimes come from the simplest and most basic of things--take for example random and mundane knick knacks such as buttons and pins. That is exactly what Korean artist Ran Hwang created in the art space Third Floor Hermès. Add in colossal curved Plexiglas panels and technicolor lights, you have a mirage of extraordinary landscapes, scenic nature, and flying Phoenix bird. 

This is my favorite art installation by far. The attention to detail and the intricacies of design are breathtaking, obsessive and beyond incredible. You get drawn in, just marvelling at the visuals transition to various episodes from a Phoenix, to blossoming peonies. I made a short video of Becoming Again and check out the rest of the post after the jump.

Disconnect: From London With Love



I am truly a sucker for festive ad campaigns. Just take a look at this one from Burberry featuring a very cute Romeo Beckham. Beckham not only inherited his dad's good looks but he got some pop star moves from his mum as seen in his breakdancing. Ah, this video makes me giddy for Christmas! I can't wait anymore!

Disconnect: The Zellweger Debacle


Last October 20, the whole world was shocked to see a dramatically different Renée Zellweger in the 21st Annual Elle Magazine's Women in Hollywood gala. Zellweger's new appearance received a huge backlash with critics suggesting she has gone under the knife.

I decided to go down memory lane and relieve her glory days.

Disconnect: BANKS


It is incredibly empowering to see women in music nowadays. Not that there weren't any empowering women before. My earliest memories of music were that of powerful female vocalists such as Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey and women with sass such as Salt-n-Pepa, TLC, the Spice Girls. And then there were a mixture of both with Christina Aguilera, Aaliyah and Destiny's Child.

In reality, there is no shortage of inspiring female artists. They are everywhere, in every genre of music and in every variety. I found myself drawn to the beautiful Jillian Banks or just BANKS. Her music is dark R&B, pop alternative with elements of electronic and trip hop. If you listen closely, you can see influences of Aaliyah and The Weeknd in her music.

Disconnect: Ellie Goulding


I am quite surprised I haven't written about Ellie Goulding. I had the opportunity to see her perform live last June and it was amazing. I wasn't really a fan of hers before seeing her live but she clearly made me into a convert! She was incredibly sexy with her dance moves, infectious with her energy and empowering as a woman--so much so that I started running because of her. Have you seen her Nike ads?

She's the coolest chick in the block.

Disconnect: Tavi Gevinson


I remember mentioning a couple of years during my blog's beginnings that I wasn't a huge fan of Tavi Gevinson. Not that I hated her. In fact it was the opposite, I find her work admirable. I just wasn't checking out her website everyday to read every single post.

But it is undeniable the success she has achieved since she started her blog, Style Rookie. She has also come a very long way since her granny chic days. I love how she has finally developed her own style and in turn, changed her focus from fashion to pop culture and feminism.

Happiness: Chuck Grant


Cool girl Chuck Grant is slowly gaining prominence in the world wide web as an up and coming photographer. The almost 25 year old is Lana del Rey's little sister and just like her big sis, she dabbled into a bit of modeling on the side. 

For Nylon, Chuck Grant takes front and center stage as Lana Del Rey snaps and interviews her little sister.

Happiness: Lipstick Collection 2


Oh hi!

I know I have been MIA for the most of September and I'm really sorry. September is always crazy, short and busy for me. It's my birthday month, first and foremost and I guess it's a transition month for the most part. I can't seem to pinpoint the exact reason why I am unable to post on this month. I'm just so busy. I thought that I would be able to squeeze in some time to do some scheduled posts but I wasn't able to. I am on my second week of holiday from work. Initially, I signed up for extra work hours but apparently, they decided to cancel my class so I'm free for another week. So I decided to work on my blog for this week before I get back to work.

Another reason for me not being able to post is that I've always been in some sort of a block for the past few months. I think I have an idea why I'm stuck and I am trying to work my way around it. I have been working on this post for a couple of months now and I'm finally getting my way around posting my second lipstick collection; and don't forget to check out my first collection here.
