    Shoes for Outfit 1: Sam Edelman
    Shoes for Outfit 2: Ritmo
    Shoes for Outfit 3: Nine West

    Today’s blog post features three easy stylish looks from Club Monaco‘s latest Spring Collection. Club Monaco has been one of my favourite brands for the longest time (now, even Imran’s too!): if my personality can be manifested into a brand, this brand would be it. There’s just something so homely, inviting, and warm about their stores which I really admire, and if you shop Club Monaco, you can see this translating onto their designs.

    Each look you see has me pairing 2 key items from the Spring Collection – what I love about Club Monaco is it doesn’t take a lot to make a complete look, a top and a matching skirt/ jumpsuit, or a basic top with a basic pair of shorts. If you take away the pieces individually, you can pair each item differently, and get another complete look. I would take the red ruffled blouse and pair it with tapered jeans, and I would take the embellished jacket and pair it with a pair of denim shorts! All key essential pieces that can be styled in many ways!

    Daryl and I will be working with Club Monaco over the next few months, bringing to you guys what Club Monaco stands for, and introducing the brand’s philosophy towards life! We did a super fun interview with the folks at Club Monaco, read it here! x

    Laneige – Two Tone Tint Lip Bar

    This is the moisturising version of the cult Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar. If you’ve always had trouble perfecting that natural gradient ombre lip, the precise V-shape design and formula of the lip tint bar leaves a rosy tint on the inner parts of your lips without drying them out.

    Lancôme – Blanc Expert Cushion 3.0 High Coverage

    The latest cushion foundation from Lancome offers an even lighter application with the same high coverage! With promises of flawless, weightless and lasting coverage, this compact cushion foundation is a triple threat!

    Fresh – Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Face Mask

    Harnessing the benefits of citrusy fruits such as lemon, orange and clementine, this mask is jam-packed with nutrients and supplements for glowing and revitalized skin. Despite having the scent of marmalade, this mask is a breeze to apply and rinse off!

    The first sensitive-dry bodycare range by The Body Shop is enriched with organic almond milk from Spain and Community Trade honey from Ethiopia. The Almond Milk & Honey soothes and restores any sensitivity or irritation to your skin.

    Dior – Lip Sugar Scrub

    This dual-function lip product exfoliates and moisturises your lips, providing a smooth canvas to layer on a lipstick or gloss. The lip sugar scrub is packed with with grains of sugar that melt into your lips, leaving your lips soft and supple. What sets this lip scrub apart from other scrubs is that you don’t have to wipe it off and this can be used to achieve a “no makeup” look.

    Tory Burch – Love Relentlessly

    What can be more romantic and sentimental than basing your perfume off your parents’ love story? The designer also named the perfume after her father’s signature used in his love notes! With a fun mix of fiery pink pepper and patchouli, this is a delight for your olfactory senses.

    M.A.C – Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson

    The annual Mac Campaign is back yet again and this time they’ve partnered with Taraji P. Henson to Jussie Smollett to help people living AIDS or HIV. If you weren’t already aware, since its launch in 1994, all proceeds from the Viva Glam campaigns has gone toward the cause.

    Featuring hints of peaches and osmanthus, this modern perfume exudes an elegant sweetness. If floral and fruity fragrances are your thing and you like your fragrance to last all day, then this scent is the one to get!

    Kiehl’s – Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution

    If you’re prone to acne scarring and pigmentation, this water-based serum corrects your problem areas with continued use. To maximise the efficacy and potency of the product, use this in conjunction with sunscreen over a period of time.

    Make up store – High Tech Lighter in Mercury

    Don’t be put off by the colour of this so-called highlighter. This swatches beautifully on the skin and enhances your complexion. Thanks to its silky soft formula that provides a sheen, this can function as your eyeshadow, blush or even lip gloss!

    Albion – Embeage Excia Conectar Range

    This luxurious and decadent Japanese skincare line for your skin uses our body’s natural bio-antioxidant called DHEA. This anti-ageing ingredient aids in diminishing oxidative damage and impedes maturing internally/on a genetic level. Add this range to your skincare regime for that added glow and luminosity.
