Jazz up outfit with a scarf and a yellow bag for work

fashion accessories Jazz up outfit with a scarf and a yellow bag for work
I dress according to my mood and right now, I’m in my lazy-to-dress-up season when it comes to my work outfits. I swear I’ve been repeating my outfits too often just because I’m too lazy to bother. Some weeks, I just want to wear a certain no-brainer dress every day. Or my oversized roomy top. But just recently, I put on my comfy grey top with my jeans and thought, heck, the color is so dull and I should jazz it up a bit. But how? Then I remembered I have many scarves which I rarely use. Throw in a brightly colored bag and hey, I think I can pass off as some random Japanese tourist! LOL.

Go Hyun Jung Salt Water Beauty Secret Celeb Secret: Go Hyun Jung uses salt water for acne

Go Hyun Jung, the highly acclaimed Korean actress who was also a runner up for Miss Korea in 1989, has always been admired for her youthful appearance. She shared many beauty tips in her skin care book titled Go Hyun-Jung’s Texture, which was a bestseller with 30,000 copies of the first edition all sold out in just two days of its launch in 2011. The book sold out so quickly because many were interested in her beauty secrets and one of her tips include using salt to treat breakouts. I did an online search on the topic and it appears that many have had success with this relatively unknown beauty secret.

What is clean eating and my 5 clean eating habits

fairy tale food book What is clean eating and my 5 clean eating habits
I wonder how many of you have been reading this blog for a long time. Like since end of 2006 when it started. Not many my guess. But even if you’ve not been with me right at the beginning but started reading this space some years ago, you may have noticed that I’ve switched gear quite a bit and all the adjustments have something to do with changes in my lifestyle. Most obviously, I’ve slowed down on my posting schedule. Behind the scenes, I’ve actually been culling many old posts to position this blog as one focusing on green beauty. Perhaps a natural progression from going green is my latest interest in clean eating. I think someone just said “HUH? What in the world is clean eating?” Well, that’s the topic I like to get your attention on today. (^_^)

Just for lunch: Tony Burch Marion Nylon Mini Tote

Tony Burch Mini Tote Bag Just for lunch:  Tony Burch Marion Nylon Mini Tote
Just to let you know, I haven’t slack in packing my lunchbox to work even though I haven’t posted any new lunchbox ideas. I’m still diligently preparing my own lunchbox every morning and lunching in almost every single work day except when I have to eat out due to an appointment. In fact, I am so serious about lunching in that I’ve been scouring for a decent lunch tote for awhile. I had very specific requirements: it has to be small yet roomy for my needs; it should be sturdy for long term use; and it has to be in black to fit all my work attire. Well, I managed to snag just a bag like that!
