Office Hours

On me: Piperlime top, Michael Michael Kors bolero, Forever 21 bodycon skirt, Forever 21 purse & Olsenboye wedges.

Today's outfit is a work inspired-comfy-yet-sparkly theme. I think the addition of a glitter top is a surprising twist for an office apparel. I love this top, not too loud but can be tamed with appropriate corporate colors like black, maroon, navy blue etc. And it could be worn for happy hours after work or date night. My wedges - yup that tall black one is unexpectedly comfortable. Wedges are structured shoes that will follow your every move at work without giving you pains instead of the stiletto ones w/c undoubtedly is best for special occasions and parties. A simple yet striking approach at work clothes is a great way to show your style - at least for me, that's the way I like it. I can't say no to glitter either. :)

By the way, I will be launching my jewelry website soon! See and hear all the details at the official Instagram page. A giveaway will happen on the launching date! And of course, I will also host a contest here and there. So many things will happen so be sure to follow.  See you there! 

 More cute work clothes at ModCloth & at Piperlime.

MY Konjac Sponge Review


Sponge comes in a completely sealed packaging in soft condition. After use, hang the sponge to dry. Sponge will shrink when it's completely dry. This is perfectly normal. Rinse and allow sponge to fully absorb water to reuse the sponge.

Natural konjac powder made from konjac potato, and it has the addition of bamboo charcoal extract

Rinse and allow sponge to fully absorb water. Sponge can be used with or without your favorite cleanser. Gently massage face using sponge in circular motion. Rinse sponge after use and hang it to dry.

I was impressed at how soft and how slippery this feels on my face. While working and rubbing it in, it generates freshness, more like a good cold feeling in my face, almost like it is freshening you up without trying too hard. I also extend it to my neck, moving in concentric circles, working it on my pores with soft strokes. You don't need to press too hard. After drying, I feel that my pores are tighter and all that's left is a moisturizer. I actually skipped the toner on this one to experiment - it has the same effect with all the natural and organic ingredients, so I then just applied my usual moisturizer. There was one night that I deliberately skipped my moisturizer to see if this works overnight without it. By next morning, my skin still feels smooth, the nutrient properties worked miracles on my dry skin.

Although I got a sponge that is directed towards oily skin, I can still say that it worked and I didn't experience any reaction at all. I don't use any cleansing brush like Clarisonic & such so I can't compare it with them. But, on the other hand, I can say that this works so much better than my drugstore facial scrub. Using that everyday seems a bit harsh to my skin so I stopped it and opted for this instead. I was a little bit worried about hanging it to dry because then bacteria will grow given the moist nature it has but the company said it could be boiled before use and they suggest getting a new one after every 3 months. 

To purchase and try this out, check them out on Amazon.

Propresser Garlic Press Review

Looking to squeeze a garlic press into your budget? The Propressor Garlic Press gives a most impressive performance. Made of beautiful stainless steel, it turns mincing garlic into an easy 1-2-3 task. Just place the garlic clove in the press, skin and all, then squeeze the handles together, and the garlic comes out minced and skinless. Then, just remove the skin from the press and throw it away. It cleans up very easy and comes with a small brush to aid in cleaning out the grating. 

If you have a pressing need for this, you can get it for the incredible price of $18.99! You can reward yourself with one of these at

Our rating is 10/10, we just love it, it makes mincing garlic so easy and no joke. I am not getting paid to say this. Try it out for yourself and be amazed.
