The Cobbler - Red Stiletto

An unexpected delight - Such was my feeling when I got this pair of heels. Thanks to Groupon, I got it at a very favorable deal and this was shipped almost immediately from Singapore upon placing my order. Honestly, it wasn't my original intention to get this red stiletto but rather lack of options since the one that I like was out of stock. However, I'm very pleased that it led me to another option which I would have never chosen out of my own will and now, surprisingly, I'm in love with it!

Lots of my clothing are in black so this pair of heels certainly add some color or "character" to my otherwise boring and dull outfit. It goes well with LBD for evening wear and dinner or even casual wear with a pair of jeans.

Spice Up a Black Shimmering Clutch

Black is my all time favorite because you can't go wrong with black, anytime or anywhere. However, too much black can be boring so I tried something fun to add colors to my outfit - pin-on fabric flowers for my shimmering black clutch that goes with a LBD and a matching pair of heels.

Red Rose
Purple flower and Golden-Beige flower 

There are many fabulous tutorials out there on the internet to make these flowers. Just do a quick search and there will be abundance of results.

L'Occitane Cherry Blossom Hand Cream

Finally! I bought a tube of hand cream from L'occitane after months of hesitation. This cherry blossom petal-soft hand cream is so delicately scented. It contains a cherry extract from Luberon, France and it is also enriched with Shea butter which moisturized and protects the hands. I love the smell and the feel on my skin after applying it on my hands. Now this will be added to my favorite product list in addition to Crabtree & Evelyn - La Source range.

Baby Roma Tomatoes & Shrimp Salad

Salad is a healthy snack. It is also great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I like my salad with minimal dressing and most importantly quick and easy to make.
