Off Shouldered Obsession With Zaful

Off shoulder, off-the-shoulder, cold shoulder - whatever you call them, there is something about this style that I just can't get enough of. It's feminine, it's pretty, it's subtly sexy, and I am obsessed. Fortunately, Zaful has plenty of affordable and beautiful choices.

Jord Woodwatches: The Perfect His & Hers Watch

As soon as my Jord watch arrived, the husband excitedly opened the box and lo and behold, there was this gorgeous timepiece in the most beautiful box. I unintentionally ordered the watch a couple sizes too big so it fit the husband quite perfectly. Soon enough, he was calling it 'my watch.' And because I love him, I told him it's his now. And because he loves me, we share. Haha!

If you've been following this blog for a while, you'd know that I have an affinity for borrowing my then-boyfriend's watches as seen in blog posts HERE and HERE. So it's quite interesting to see that this time, now married, I get to share my very unique watch with him.

SNOW AND SKI AT MT. BULLER - An Adelaidean First Timer/Beginner's Experience (Plus Mt. Gambier Stopover)

The snow was exactly how I had imagined it to be - pristine white, soft, and utterly beautiful. It was our first time to see snow and we were off on a skiing adventure. Skiing, on the other hand, was NOT how I had imagined it to be. If you're a first timer/beginner and are planning your first snow adventure at Mt. Buller, then read on for a detailed copy of our itinerary and budget breakdown.
My first snow experience!

Sugar Loaf at Hallett Cove Conservation Park

One of the best things about going around Adelaide is that you can easily feel like you have transported yourself to a whole new different world - if only for an hour. For today's post, we travel to one of Australia's best geological and archaeological sites. But don't take it from me, I'm no expert and surely can't explain how over a history of millions of years, nature took its toll and resulted into this beauty (check out official South Australia websites for more on the history). And geologists and archaeologists might be able to explain their different scientific theories and histories, but really, we cannot even begin to grasp the wonder of God's marvelous creations. How beautiful are the works of your hands, oh Lord?

McLaren Vale Getaway: Itinerary and Budget Breakdown

For our first wedding anniversary, K and I drove down south of Adelaide to McLaren Vale for a holiday. Because our anniversary fell on a weekday, the internet wasn't too helpful when I googled "what to do in McLaren Vale" since all the events were held during the weekend. But since we had already booked our stay and we would be happy exploring on our own anyway, we pushed through. So if you're looking for a guide of where to stay, what to do (on weekdays and other days), and how much you can expect to spend, read on.

Irresistible Me Diamond Hair Styler REVIEW

I won't pretend to be a beauty blogger but I couldn't resist reviewing this flat iron from Irresistible Me because it was, well, irresistible. *wink wink*
Natural, untreated, "virgin hair" curled with Irresistible Me flat iron

First of all, let me tell you about my hair. It's natural, untreated, "virgin hair". It's very black, very thick and very straight. In other words, very stubborn. Don't get me wrong, I love my hair but it definitely takes forever to style in curls and more than twice the amount of product to keep it from straightening itself out. In fact, running a hand through the curls will be enough to straighten my hair out if you don't put enough product. So if you want to know how this flat iron fared, read on!
