Fashion Piece Translator 4 - Hashtag by Lily

I am back on schedule! Today with a new edition of the Fashion Piece Translator. When you are not that wealthy to buy whatever you desire, you need to be creative, finding ways to substitute the designer pieces that you love so much. That is what the Fashion Piece Translator is all about (every Tuesday on the blog). Making it convenient for you to get inspiration from the expensive brands or the affordable pieces. In either way, it’s fun to see the resemblances and its price differences right? ;)

Every first time of something is exciting and a memorable moment. In my 7 months of blogging, I am delighted to have experienced a few ‘first times’ that definitely has enriched my blogger existence. The first time that I got invited to a bloggers event, the first time I had a shooting date with a blogger, the first time I attended a fashion show, the first time I was recognised by a follower, the first time I host a bloggers event (oke this one is still yet to come, but I am already busy with the organisation of it ;)). Yes, I have shared all those moments here with you, so here I have another first time for you today. That is: the first time I visit a ‘press day’!! Continue reading


When we booked our vacay, we just wanted a relaxing few days off to somewhere with a lot of sun and a nice beach. And indeed it was the most beautiful beach I have ever seen, but Mexico was so much more than just that. I was pleasantly surprised with the diversity that Mexico (Playa del Carmen) has to offer. From mysterious Maya ruins, astonishing natural cenotes to super friendly Mexicans and everything in between. Yes, after spending 9 days there, I can come to the conclusion that Mexico made it into my top 5 favorite destinations so far!

final day in paradise
It is such a bitter and sweet day, when you realize that it is already your last day in paradise. Bitter obviously because you just don’t want to leave a dream that you are living to go back to reality. And sweet because you are grateful with an opportunity like this and try to enjoy the beautifulness one last time. Soak in that vitamin D as much as possible and trying to take everything in before it is too late. Continue reading
