Wedding Season

GARDEN ROMANCE

"Marriage is just the garden gate. along the path there will be weeds and flowers. pull the weed. cherish the flowers."

GARDEN WEDDING truly SIGNIFIES THE MEANING OF A MARRIAGE. BRINGING OUR CLOSEd ONEs BACK TO mother NATURE, allowing them to sign off and move one step away from the hustle bustle whilst we gather and CELEBRATe LOVE in a discrete, intimate and Muted way. Where love meets nature.

It's simple, raw and beautiful how NATURAL SUNSHINE LIGHTS UP THE ceremony INSTEAD OF crystal CHANDELIER, HOW regimented row of TREES replaces PHOTO-BOOTH and fancy backdrops. How laughter in the air and sound of rustling leaves takes over staged gigs.

SHE WALKS DOWN THE AISLE wearing A SIMPLE white gown so long it drags across fallen leaves WITH FRESH BLOOMS HELD IN HER ARMS, HANDPICKED BY the GROOM right from THEir GARDEN. complemented by soft windswept hair, HEALTHY glow (as the sun hits) AND a bright smile from cheek to cheek.

wedding is a one in a lifetime OCCASION. Honour love with demure lace gowns from milly bridal.

 

Peach Morganite

I've always seen Peach as a fruit, not anymore.
 

Morganite (also known as Pink Beryl) is part of the beryl family, has great reminiscence of Rose Quartz and Pink Spinel which the latter is rare and only accessible by the Queen or Beyoncé. The natural peachy pink hue pairs beautifully with rose gold which makes it extremely well known among young couples in USA. It isn't surprising to us that rose gold and peach morganite engagement rings hold a royal status in the wedding industry (omg did I just say that).

Everything rosy goldy and peachy nudey will continue be a trend until YouTube gurus stop decorating their home with rose gold touches. ps I love Zoella. Just if you're wondering how do these couples settle on the perfect shade of peach, here goes the color chart of morganite which puts everyone on the same note. Instead of, "the tub of peach body butter from body shop".

 

We recently came across the Myraygem website, where a well-researched article about Diamond engagement ring caught our attention. We've shared many gem articles throughout the years yet learning about gem is a lifelong process. Just like anything else in life, as I said in our previous post, I'm still learning how to fry an egg. Damn it. Our research on the Morganite and Diamond engagement rings thought us that Morganite is a quirky gem as the color changes through heat treatment. 

Morganite has a lower price point among most gemstones. For this reason, we foresee how Morganite will continue to be celebrated for the upcoming years. In the meanwhile, I shall start saving for a Morganite nose ring and a tub of eye cream. Just if you missed our skincare update, have you left us any recommendations?

 

ps As you're reading this, I've just arrived Shanghai for work.
See I wasn't joking about working for the ring & eye cream.

Survival Kit : Sweater

Sweater

how many is too many? we have 8 for the upcoming fall & winter. kinda guilty. kinda not. we are all sorted from monday to sunday with help from yoins.com.

 

With the objective to not freeze our toosh in the upcoming winter, we've drawn down to 8 key sweaters that'll bring us through every occasion from bed to business table and kitchen floor to dance floor. I prefer slightly fitted sweaters that sits on the body yet stretchy enough for an extra layer right under. If you can't tell, I love a good sleeve detail. Tip: Well fitted sweater with sleeve details that hugs nicely and goes slightly beyond the wrist area makes you look slimmer. They'll look amazing under coats too. A shy peak of what you're wearing under.

Several factors we took into considerations whilst building this sweater block. Firstly, they must go with all the coats that I own because I have color OCD (self-proclaimed) where any outfits with a combination of more than 3 colours make me anxious. Secondly, they can't be all black because wearing an all-black outfit in the winter will make me look miserable. Lastly, they must look polish enough for work. No offence but sweaters have a cosier look and doesn't look the most professional at work (especially over-sized & chunkier ones).

Step 3: Pattern/Texture. Went for classic stripes (who doesn't love a good stripe top?!) and a fluffy number solely because this toughie needs some cutesy in her life. Have you seen my fried egg PJs? love.

Step 4: Wild card. I'd go for a sheer or ripped jumper, but the weather is freezing here I'd be sucking up my own stupid decision. Therefore, this adorable over-sized sweater with hearts printed on the elbow. 

Step 1: Base colours. We have 4 coats in total: black, navy, grey and beige. Bottoms we have are in the same colour family so it made sense to have these colours as our basic blocks. Here's a guide on finding your right colour.

Step 2: Fun colours. That'll be mustard and white. Mustard compliments my wardrobe and complexion perfectly whilst white works great to break up dull pieces. Already picturing myself wearing the navy coat, white sweater and navy jeans with patent platforms. werk it.

 
 

We love pairing fitted knit with a pair of high-waisted denim and smart shoes.

Thinking of getting this green cropped knit sweater because we have a gorgeous olive bomber that would look sexy over it. Alright, we shall go grab a hot drink because it's freezing. In the meanwhile, there are ladies sweaters online to get you started. Hopefully this article gave you inspiration on various cute sweaters how to start the sweaty-fundamental.
