Look post : the dress

 I've never been too keen on taking pictures. I'll be the first to admit I am not photogenic. And, while I have grown to be ok with that (my talents lie elsewhere ), I  certainly enjoy seeing look posts on other blogs. Seeing what other people are wearing on a day to day basis is inspiring.

Since I have not yet mustered up the courage to do a regular look post, I have decided to do something slightly different. I wore this outfit to a Sunday lunch recently. I was immediately obsessed with this printed dress the moment I saw it. While it is perfect for summer; I can also wear it in the cooler autumn weather with stockings and a coat.

The shoes and necklace are some of my favourite statement pieces. I love the lace up and suede detail on the shoes and the necklace made me think of those Pichulik necklaces I have been dying to get. The snake skin detail on the side of the bag gives an otherwise very plain bag that wow factor. I cant wait to experiment with all these pieces and find new ways to wear them.

How stunning is this bag!?

If you have posted a look on your blog recently please leave me the link in the comment section. I would love to read it. Other than that, have an amazing day!

Review : Nutri Women Skin Rejuvenation Serum

If you follow me on twitter (@CkoBlog ) you would know how much I have been raving about Nutri Women products. For the past month I have been trying a few of their products and so far I am most impressed with the Skin Rejuvenation Serum.

"Helps reverse signs if ageing. For hydrating, tightening and brightening ". While the packaging is is pretty self explanatory, I have to admit I was not too sure about this serum. Partly because serums have never been a big part of my beauty regime. Nevertheless, I wanted to give it a fair chance and, since I am awful at following through, I was especially diligent with this one.

After a few weeks of using the serum I am happy to the report: the packaging does not lie. My skin is visibly brighter and tighter. I also feel like my skin looks alot less tired (although it could just be wishful thinking).

Nutri Women products are exclusive to Dischem and with a slogan like "beauty from within" I figured it was worth a try.  I use it in conjunction with another Nutri Women day cream but I'll save that for another review. I'm definitely going to continue using this serum.

Have you used any of the Nutri Women products? I would love to hear your thoughts on it.

Style crush :Twinning

I am a firm believer in the power of fashion. There have been days when I have felt at my worst; and a fashion blog or a magazine cheered me up. There have been times when I have been completely uninspired and all it took was an episode of fashion bloggers. Yes, fashion has power indeed.

However, nothing is more strikingly inspiring to me than street style. Seeing how regular ( and some not so regular) people share their ability to turn an idea into a work of art. This is where my most recent style crushes come in. Sisters Cipriana and Takenya Quan. While their style is very cohesive there is also a very strong sense of individual style.  Everything from their manes to their impressive footwear; I love it!
