To remove or not to remove the plastic holders of your earrings?

Last year 19-year-old Chelsea Smith, tweeted that she realised the round plastic holders behind earring can be taken off and are unnecessary. But as I always believed things are always made for a purpose. 



If you would take a closer look at the earring designs which have these plastic backings are usually bulker and heavier. These plastic disk actually provide support to the earrings preventing it from drooping on your ears and not just a smart marketing plan to make the earring look nice on their holders in stores.

Fashion accessories that are appropriate for work.

I am sure that many of us would like to look our best at work.

Looking good doesn't only makes us feel confident, it  also presents a well groomed employee. Any employer would appreciate this as their employees represent their company. Studies has shown that dressing appropriately increases the chances of getting a promotion.   
Sure you know how to pair that outfit just right but what about fashion accessories? What are the dos and don'ts in a corporate environment.

Keep the bling bling for parties
Casually styled fake diamond huge necklaces and statement earrings are a no no for work, they are loud distracting and down right unprofessional. Please save these lovely pieces for dinner parties. Opt for stud diamond earrings and simple pieces such as our 
Diamond Bow Fashion Stud Earrings

 Don't be an all in one band in the office.
Everyone knows that the office is more often then not a quiet place. Don't wear dangling earrings or a huge chunk of bangles, these make a noticeable bunch of noises when you walk pass. You wouldn't want to notify everyone about your presents would you?  Opt for a classy bracelet like this, Classic and timeless piece.
Spring Breeze Crystal Bracelet

 


These are a couple of the don'ts now lets take a look at the dos...

Wear a timepiece at work  
It gives people the vibe that you are a responsible and aware of time. Your watch doesn't have to be expensive when you are just starting out.
 Get a pair of pearls 
Yes, I know some of you would say that pearls are for old people on the contrary they are awesome for interviews, business lunches and even with evening wear. It doesn't matter if you have real or faux ones on, pearls bring out the elegents and sophistication of a women.
Golden Grid Statement Bracelet
 Play with colours
Lets say you have this lovely blue dress add a yellow statement necklace. Let your accessories express your personality through colours but keep it simple and clean cut. 
and finally please remember that less is more 
At most wear 4 accessories at once for example ( watch, earring, necklace, wedding ring). If you wear a pair of earrings go with either a  necklace or a bracelet. 
Wear no more than 3 at a time for work, maybe 4.  (Watch, earrings, necklace.  Ok, fine, 4: my wedding rings.)

How to make Valentine's day special on a budget in Singapore

 

After a festive Christmas, in a blink of an eye Valentines day and the Chinese New Year is just around the corner.Living in a city where our daily expenses keep rising doesn't help at all either.

Fear not here are some ways to warm up that special someone's heart ...

Valentine falls on Saturday this year, that great news because that means you could spend the whole day together.

1. Take your date to the marina barrage where you could have a picnic and fly kites by day by night you could enjoy the lovely skyline of the city and star gazing by night
There is a restaurant located downstairs and just a short walk away is gardens by the bay and satay by the bay. 



2. Valentines is never completed without flowers and chocolates, these days we are spoiled for choice for delicious and yet affordable chocolate such as those imported chocolates from Choc Spot located at Nex Shopping Mall. You could buy a single rose instead of a whole bunch. Minimize instead of do without.
                                          

3. Make your own gift instead of getting something off the shelf. Write your a love letter on a self made card. Or cook a homemade meal of your favorite dish together.

4. Cuddle up to your favorite movie at home and turn off your phones so you will remain undisturbed.While ordering pizza for a nice quiet evening.

Glisten Jewel has brought in some lovely pieces for the special occasion for lovers. Bring a smile to your girlfriend's/wife's face with these affordable necklaces which come with a gift box. Each necklace is going for $6.50 each.

How to pull off hair accessories


Like any other girl, I am a huge fan of hair accessories, it compliments your hairstyle while keeping in neat and out to your face.


When it comes to styling your  hair it all depend on which cut you are wearing. For example if you have a pixie cut hairbands and head warps can totally rock this style.

When it comes to hairbands we are definitely spoiled for choice from the pretty floral 


to the adorable yet classy hair bows...






Hairbands are definitely an effortless and fun way to jazz up the pixie cut...

If you have a bunch of lovely curls, hair accessories are an awesome way to arrange your hair in a very flattering manner.

Twisting a bunch of your curls and pining it with cute bow gives you an elegant flair. 

Pins come in all sorts of stylish, chic and bold designs, it is as easy as mixing and matching the appropriate designs for  the  right  occasion.

Leather bows gives a very bold and edgy feel.


Shiny glittery ones are awesome for dinner parties or when placed appropriately for work. 



For long hair, play with the extra length cause you have more options...

Scrunchies are cool for side ponytails.


Chains are an awesome way to "decorate" your hair if you are not really in the mood to do anything else.  It looks cool and would make you the hit at any party.
