Mermaid Curls with Elona Fusilli & Penne | Hair Tutorial + GIVEAWAY!

I have always been a hair curlers/straighteners dummy. Never been really able to use it no matter how Elle taught me lol, so every time I was having a photoshoot or an event to attend, I HAVE to go to the salon to get my hair done. Not only it costed more, it was also quite a waste of time, considering Jakarta's heavy traffic.

Now, thanks to this Elona Fusilli & Penne, I am no longer subjected to such things!
Say hello to (waving) wavy hair!


Elona Fusilli & Penne

So what is this Elona Fusilli & Penne exactly? It's basically a 2-in-1 auto curler and straightener, which has been my favorite hair styling tool since 2014. It's very fast and easy to use, even for a hair curler newbie like me, and the result is amazing! It takes me only 10 to 15 minutes to create salon-like pretty hair and now I never travel without it. :D

rosebullet Edit Tokyo | Pastel vs Monochrome Sisters Style

 Calling all Japanese fashion lovers to take a look at this fabulous brand birthed in fashion city Tokyo:
rosebullet Edit Tokyo
orchardgateway B1-02/03 (linked to Somerset MRT) / Wheelock B2-06
IG: @rosebulletsg
FB: /rosebulletsg

Yes, rosebullet is now available in Singapore! It also has stores in Japan, China, Hong Kong and Korea. At rosebullet Edit Tokyo, you can shop these Japanese labels: rosebullet, Feroux, Kikka and Jenevieve je. Aside from the pretty clothes, they also have Japanese lingerie and Tabio socks in store:
 The lingeries are sold as a set (bra + panty) at reasonable prices. For example, these cute sets up here cost S$69.90 (left one) and S$49.90 (right one).


S$49.90 /set

S$39.90 /set (left) and S$49.90 /set (right)

Now the Tabio Socks here are made in Japan and they have no sizing because the quality and elasticity of the material is good.


Romantic Pastel

rosebullet sent us these beautiful apparels so we decided to play around with them. Starting with this minty floral pastel set! (ˆᴗˆ◦)

On Jess: Pearl Necklace S$59, Mint Floral Dress S$209


On Elle: Mint Sleeveless dress : S$249 Pearl Multi chain necklace: S$79 Beige knit top : S$139


Love how beautiful the color, floral print and rose-shaped laser-cut fabrics are. The attention to details is top notch, you'll find quality intricate fabric with unique designs here. As the brand name suggests, Rose prints are a favorite in their collection. We also dig the super soft beige knit top! The overall look is very classy and feminine, also thanks to the fit and flare dresses which hug the waist perfectly; not too tight yet accentuate our body silhouettes pretty nicely. The inner mesh under the dress gives volume to the skirt. Also, the length of the dresses are not too long, it is above the knees with a high waist line, this cut is flattering as it makes your legs look longer!



Sassy Monochrome

Moving on to the edgier side of the brand. Yup, if girly-kawaii is not your style, you can also find this bold, modern, chic style in rosebullet.

On Elle: Knit Top with inner Organdy peplum S$149, Gingham Midi Pencil Skirt S$199, Bijoux Necklace: S$89

The top is actually a two-piece set of a tank top with flare ruffle organza on the bottom, layered up with the fit-body lightweight knit top. The vertical ribs on the knit top give a slimming effect. Worn together with the gingham pencil midi skirt, they create this body fit peplum look which is ladylike, and yet very stylish, professional and mature.



On Jess: Chiffon tie-front blouse S$149, Gingham Cropped top S$159, Black Skirt S$149
The layering game in this monotone set is strong. Just like Elle's up there, Jess' top here is also consisted of two pieces of clothing: a cropped tie-up long sleeved chiffon blouse, layered with a gingham sleeveless cropped top. Combined with the high waisted a-line skirt, they create this bold, clean-cut yet youthful look. Overall, It's fun to create different looks with these items; there are many ways to mix and match! For example, you can also wear the two gingham pieces below (cropped top and skirt) as a set too.

All in all, this Japanese brand offers wide selection available from daily wear to glam party style and they're best known for their layered style, play of colours and prints, and use of good materials such as organdy, soft wool, etc. All of which created with good fit so not only they look nice on the eyes, they also fit your body lines well. ♡ 



So, which one do you like the most? The Pastel Romantic or the Sassy Monochrome look?
rosebullet has posted our photos on their Instagram and Facebook, so for the Giveaway, make sure you follow them there, like and post your comment on the style you like the most (don't forget to leave your email address). (ˆヮˆ)づ♡

York, England


Hello from York!
Well, actually I'm typing this in Newcastle, back to our airbnb. We only had a one-day trip to York yesterday! By 'we' I mean my bf, my bf's family and myself. Yes, sadly no Jess this time. :(

Talk about this trip, I almost canceled it due to our recent unfortunate event (the ticket was already bought before that), but after some consideration and input from close relatives, I decided to 'just say yes' :)

Anyway! Here are my outfit and some snippets of my York trip that I've already posted on Snapchat (elleandjess)! If you want to see some videos, follow us there! x

From Newcastle to York by train~
 Apparently we are allowed to take our pets on a train, even this big. Yay to that! :D
 First view in York, this peaceful park.
 And this river <3
 Ok, I'm gonna have to ask you this, what is so interesting about this pic above? Why are many of my Snapchat followers screenshotted it? One even DM-ed me saying the boy is so handsome hahaha, ok maybe that's why.
 Went to this section of York where there are so many cute restaurants, shops, and cafes!!
Visited The Cat Gallery and bought this mug and some wet food for the kids! :D
 Stop and eat sandwiches!
 Ok, gotta be honest here, the sandwich was not as good as it looked.
 The weather was starting to get colder, so we bought some ice cream to heat up our body's temperature. It failed tho.
 Doesn't look like it, but this is actually a castle.
 Visited McArthurGlen outlet!
 There is this shop that sells geek stuffs, like Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Batman, etc.
 And also unique stuff like this contact lens case!
 Random mini GOT figures!
 I got Viserion and Ned Stark! Hahah not bad. I was aiming for White Walker, Joffrey, and Daenerys though!!
Ending my York trip with a bowl of Japanese food haha, was craving for rice, that's why! xD

On a different note, there's a RAMADHAN SALE going on in GOWIGASA.com!
Make sure you don't miss out!


XOXO
