I have been reading and finding the right journals for my assignment since this morning. Let's not mention the number of journals that I have read here but I'm so glad that I've finally found a few that are related to the research topic that my group mates and I are working on.

It's been a while since I've written this kind of post, yes, on the weekly-outfit-inspirations that I've promised to update weekly (but failed). I apologise for not fulfilling my promise. It's just that the workload from school has been insane, not forgetting to mention the load coming from my part-time job. Well, I should be grateful that I still have time to come here and say hello to y'all.


 I know I haven't been updating my blog as frequently as compared to how I used to. But I just want to tell you that I'm still the old Jessica, the one who cares about this blog, and more importantly you. I'll never forget my roots and the very motive due to which I founded this blog. 

I don't really have plans for this weekend since the haze is so bad these days, so I figured it might be a good time for me to share with you some of my school outfits. 
On Monday, wear gratefulness.
Don't think about the Monday blues. Be grateful that each day you are granted with the strength to wake up and see the world. 

My kinda go-to outfit when I don't feel like dressing up at all on a Monday.
Woke up like this sweatshirt from Fashion Valet
Shorts from Forever 21
Sneakers from PUMA  

Here are some other ways that you can rock the sweater!

On Tuesday, wear happiness. 
Always remember that happiness is a choice. You are the only one who can control your own happiness, so never let anyone or anything dull your sparkle.

As you can see from my outfits, I don't really have a specific style. I'm just someone who dresses up according to my mood, and someone who dresses up the way I feel like at that particular point of time. Although I like being in monotonous outfits (like the one above), sometimes I also enjoy incorporating pastel colours into my coordinates, because why not? ;)

Knitted cardigan from China 
Tee from online (I don't remember which online store I got this from, sorry!) 
Baby blue pleated skorts from Anticlockwise 

Showing you some of the alternative ways to wear the tee and the tennis skirt! I believe the tee will just go well with any kinds of bottom! :)
On Wednesday, wear faith.
Yes the workload might be heavy and the work might be a hard nut to crack, but keep your head up and have faith in yourself. Believe in yourself, you can do more than you think you can.

Yup, I wore a black sweater again, but I decided to pair it with a tartan-printed skirt to add some colours to the entire outfit.

Tartan-printed skirt from Taobao 
Sneakers from Adidas Originals 

On Thursday, wear confidence. 
Self-confidence is the best outfit, wear it and rock it. If makeup makes you feel confident, put it on. If wearing sneakers makes you feel confident, throw them on. Don't let the opinions of others consume you and drown your inner voice.


I guess this is my favourite outfit of the week because I'm still kinda obsessed with button-down skirts. The pinstriped, collared-shirt adds a sophisticated touch when paired with the denim skirt, which makes it more appropriate on days when you want to look more presentable for semi-formal presentations / meetings.

Denim skirt from Bershka 
Watch from Daniel Wellington 
On Friday, wear passion.
If you have a dream, then chase after it with passion. Passion never fails. It's only your passion will take you forward and further. 


I don't have classes on Fridays, but I usually spend my day completing my work. Since it's Friday, I decided to wear a something light and bright to usher in the weekend (but sadly, half of my Saturday is dedicated to reading journals lolol). Anyway, I've been loving my new DISC sneaker wedges from PUMA. It's one of the most stylish yet comfortable sneaker wedges that I've ever owned. I can totally envision myself in many kinds of outfits with this pair of sneaker wedges!! Can't wait to show you the ways I would style these babies. Here's one for starters!  

Double-layered top from TheStageWalk (Available in 3 colours!)  
Joni jeans from Topshop 
Sneaker wedges from PUMA 

On a side note, my fringe is getting longer and I'm glad to see that my hairstyle is finally transitioning to something fresh and (hopefully) better. Also, my purple hair lasted for more than 1 month and it is now gradually fading into a soft reddish pink tone. The fact that the colour has stayed on my hair for this long has definitely impressed me! Thank you Centro Hair Salon, you guys are amazing!! 


I hope you guys like this post, leave a comment and let me know which outfit is your favourite! 

Thank you for reading and love y'all!  


In life, you will come across two main types of people: the angels and the devils.

Well, let's talk about the angels first.

They are...

People who support you on your darkest days. 

People who actually know you and believe in you. 

People who praise you when you are doing well and advise you otherwise.

People who offer you help when you need it.

People who feel genuinely happy for your success. 

People who treat you truthfully and never backstab you.

People who appreciate, care and love you with all their heart.

You know, I do believe that there are angels in this world. 

And you should always be grateful and cherish them, because angels are hard to find in this world. So hard. 

While there are angels, there are also devils. 

No matter how hard you try to avoid them, it's sad but true that we are bound to meet devils some time in our life. 

They are unavoidable. They do exist in your life; they might even be someone who is just beside you. 

These devils try their very best to bring you down. 

They can't stand it when they see you climbing to the top; they just want you to stay and keep them company down in the valley. 

They hate it when you have things that they CAN'T possess. 

Ironically, they hate it too, when you have things that they CAN possess.

So they spend not-so-precious time and effort to come up with wicked ideas to sabotage you. 

They would create and spread rumours about you, gossip about you behind your back and convince others to join in their hating game. (On a side note: Those people who don't know you well, but choose to believe in the rumours, are idiots.)

All they ever wanted is for you be hated, not only by them, but every single idiotic "recruit" they may chance upon. 

You used to care, so much, about what these devils say about you. 

You used to be so bothered about what these devils say about you. 

You used to think that you should explain yourself to them.

But you know what? It's time to stop giving a shit about all that.

These devils aren't worth your time and attention at all. 

They just won't quit. They never quit.
The more you feel affected, the happier they are. So just let them say whatever they want, just let them be.

Bear in mind that what they say about you does not reflect your personality and values as a person.

You wanna know how to deal with these devils?

Do yourself a favour: walk away from them. There's no need to explain yourself or try to please them at all. You don't need these devils in your life. 

You can't control whether or not you will run into such despicable devils, 
but you do have some say in choosing who you want to surround yourself with. 

Get around people with positive minds, people who uplift you, inspire you to become someone better, people who bring out the good in you and ultimately believe in you. 

When you hear rumours about you, just laugh it off and move on. Oh, and be grateful that you weren't born as ignorant as the people who spread the rumours.

Spend more time with those who love you.
They certainly deserve more.


Here's the last and final blog post about my trip in Tokyo, which was way back in May.

I woke up feeling a little sad because I knew it was already my last day in Tokyo. And I just wasn't ready to leave this beautiful country yet. I wanted to stay there forever. :(

As much as I wish for a few more forevers in Japan, there is no running away from the fact that it was time for me to go home, to be back to reality. So on the last day, I told myself to really live in the last 24 hours in Japan, to take in the beauty of Japan as much as possible, and to enjoy every single moment I have left in Japan.

I miss waking up to such a beautiful weather every day in Tokyo. T_T 

Got dressed and headed to Harajuku with mummy and Melanie's family.

Our brunch place - THE GREAT BURGER in Harajuku.
It's situated in a backstreet which is pretty hard for foreigners to locate. Big thanks to Melanie and her family for taking us here!!

Welcome to The Great Burger.

The signature dishes here are, of course, burgers. But if you are craving for pancakes and the quintessential American-styled breakfast platters, The Great Burger has them hot and ready!


Love this little corner selling souvenirs in the restaurant! The smileys instantly lifted up my mood as soon as I stepped into their presence!

Mum's Double Cheese Omelette with Hash Brown and Bread. The omelette was a little too milky for her liking, but everything else was good!

My first reaction was "Omg, this is damn huge!!". Melanie, her sister and I ordered the same burger hehe!

I think The Great Burger truly lives up to its name as the burger was nothing less than delicious!!! The first bite was already an one way ticket to heaven. Also, it's extremely filling due to the generous portion. 

Though the pricing was relatively high, I think it was all worth it for the best burger in Tokyo!

After brunch, we strolled around the city and took as many pictures as possible in every corner - literally every corner!


With my hipster bae, Melanie.

Eh nope, it's not a housing area ok!! It's actually a fashion store displaying its clothes in its own unique way to attract curious customers! How cool!

This stunning and magnificent architectural building in Omotesando belongs to PRADA. Holy moly.

We stumbled across Ben & Jerry's as we walked through the streets in Omotesando. Originated from the States, Ben & Jerry's offers a plethora of premium ice-cream and Greek yoghurt. Really wish they'll set foot in Malaysia! 


To be honest, I don't think it's particularly impressive, it just isn't bad, that's all. 


The colourful skirts are actually kinda cute but I don't think I will be wearing them in Malaysia lolol.



Animal facial masks - fulfill your dreams of being the animal that you always wanted to be HAHAH. :P

There's this huge Pokemon Store in Narita airport - Pokemon fans, what are you waiting for?

So that's all about my Tokyo trip!!! (If you wanna read all my Tokyo posts, you can click on the label "J-Tokyo")

It was the most amazing trip that I've ever had in my life. I felt so, so grateful that I had this opportunity to fulfill my wish of travelling to one of my dream countries this year. Thank you Melanie and her family for making this trip even more wonderful. Without them, my mum and I will be so lost in Japan hahahaha. Honestly, there are still so much more to explore in Japan and I really I hope I can go back soon!! 


Hello people, I am here to blog about the Innisfree's Beauty Picnic that I have attended last Saturday!! To me, it was a very inspiring and informative event, and that's exactly why I would love to share it with y'all!

I'd been looking forward to attending this event ever since I received the email invitation from Innisfree because "beauty picnic" sounds pretty interesting to me hahaha! I was also expecting a lot of healthy refreshments since the event will be held in Organica Lifestyle. If you haven't already known, Organic Lifestyle is a health cafe located in Bangsar, which was founded by Shantini Ingkaran (a former practicing lawyer who reinvented herself as a wellness trainer).

Being the first nature brand in Korea, Innisfree was introduced to the world since 2000. Innisfree products are made from the natural resources, such as the chemical-free green tea, camellia petals and leaves from Jeju Island in Korea.

Look how beautiful Jeju Island is! I hope I will be able to pay a visit one day! ♥


Introducing the new Sparkling Mineral range from Innisfree! The products from this line are produced with the Sanbangsan Mountain's hot spring water, which is rich in minerals and carbonic acid - good stuff for your skin!


The set-up is just so pretty!! It made me feel as if I was actually in a picnic! 

Light refreshments were served before the event starts. The green juice actually tasted so good!! 



Once most of the bloggers arrived, we were directed to the 2nd floor for a short therapy. We were seated in a big circle and were asked to relax ourselves by closing our eyes, followed by a few breathing exercises guided by Ms.Shantini. Ms.Shantini believes that beauty comes from within and that we must always seek and retain inner peace within ourselves.
If there is light in the soul, there will be beauty in the person. 

Here's Mr.Johnny Nam, Innisfree Brand Manager, giving his short and humorous speech. He also mentioned that there will be a new Innisfree store opening in Malaysia this October!!! Are you guys excited as I am?! 

We were then given the chance to try the new Sparkling Mineral products right on the spot!! 

Removing my makeup using the Innisfree makeup remover wipes! :P 

Us with our face without a single trace of makeup - we were ready to try and test the products!! :P

First step - Cleansing with the Innisfree Jeju Sparkling Mineral Powder (which contains 2 different sachets in a pack)
You can easily pamper your skin with a relaxing spa-like treatment with this carbonic acid powder pack! 

Dissolve sachet #1 in some water. 

Then add sachet #2, but expect effervescence. 


Then, soak your face into the water!
I actually feared doing this... T__T For those who have the same phobia as I do, you can wash your face with both hands instead of soaking your face right into the water lolol.

While using the solution to wash my face, I could feel a sparkling sensation all over my face. Then I was told that the solution actually helped to promote blood circulation to the face area.

Then, we were told to apply the Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum. This star product from Innisfree contains 100% green tea essence which is purely derived from fresh Jeju green tea leaves. With a water-like texture, this product helps to keep the skin moisturised and nourished without leaving your face feeling sticky. 

The following product was the Innisfree Jeju Sparkling Mineral Skin Toner. It's loaded with 88% sparkling mineral water, which helps to smoothen the skin texture and enhance the absorption rate of the skin care products in the upcoming steps. Anyway, I really like this product as it instantly rejuvenates my skin, rendering a minty cool on my face!! 

The Innisfree Jeju Sparkling Mineral Essence is bottled in a foamy texture, and it will quickly melt on your skin like snow when you massage it on your face. 

To prevent the loss of moisture from the skin, apply this all over your face after the toner and essence! 

While the Jeju Sparkling Mineral Lotion is designed from normal to combination skin, those with drier skin can use the Jeju Sparkling Mineral Cream, which is richer than the lotion.

Last and final step - spray the Jeju Sparkling Mineral Mist to give an extra boost of hydration to your face!! This product can be used before/after makeup. 


We were also given some time to do our makeup with the Innisfree cosmetics!! Jxhia and I are in love with the Long Wear Cushion and lip tints!!

What's a picnic without some food and beverages??? We were even given the chance to make our own salad and sparkling juice! Ahhhh, I feel so healthy hahaha!

Eat good, feel good. 

Meet the cute puppy, Waffle (Ms.Shantini's pet)!!! It's soooooo cute, sooooo fluffy and soooooo lovable!!! 

This cute fluffy ball literally melted my heart lah!!! Chenelle, Jxhia and I couldn't stop playing and taking pictures with it hahahaha.



It was truly an one-of-a-kind experience. This event was not only fun, but also very interesting and enlightening as well!! We totally had fun trying and getting hands-on experience with the new products. A big thank you to the team from Innisfree for all the efforts. I think they have done a really great job, from planning to organising the agendas and setting up the place with all the beautiful props and products. Also, thank you Ms.Shantini from Organica Lifestyle for inspiring us to nourish our body starting from within!

 Looking forward to attending the next event from Innisfree!
