A VERY BELATED 2015 RESOLUTION. There are quite a lot of resolutions and goals that I am gonna set for myself in 2015. I have been thinking over in the past weeks of what I am not capable of and what I am in need to improve. For some sensitive resolutions, I am gonna skip the convo in blog, but for my long-time-no-updates blog or even physical issues that I am encountering, here are the 5 resolutions I am planning for. I hope I can finish them in the first half of the year, hopefully.

1/ Revamp! The structure of this blog is way to messy for myself to find the articles back, and i seriously need a better arrangement and editorial plan with the categories and labels organised, and of course planning for SEO, where I should steal the tricks from after my last training lesson. Lets finish this resolution asap and start writing more posts up here.

2/ Invest in quality instead of quantity. Of course I am talking about shopping. and yep, I have been buying quite a lot in 2014 and they are stacking in my closet without being touched. Looks like I should have think twice before buying.

3/ Go green & lose weight. Go green for detoxifying my body after eating McDonald's french fries, which I probably cannot resist. Lose weight is basically my every year resolution, and this goal will never disappear unless your weight goes under 100lbs.

4/ Think big & Be creative. I am not the person who loves regular work, the more ad hoc the more competitive things will go. Trying to think a step more can hopefully make things less boring.

5/ Start learning a new language. Probably Korean or French. This have been on my list for quite a while, and the more languages you knew the more chance you will have! >> I don't know why this is always my theory.

6/ Extract my wisdom tooth.  Should be teeth, as there are three of them. Argh. It's gonna hurt. Ew.

Not like usual, I am not going to show you my personal style today, but to introduce you a site that I am in love at the first sight. A site that can help you achieve a New York style home with indulgence - is an e-commerce site that is very taken away from the trend of "fast fashion". Their "limitless essentials" products are being produced with special editions of signature designs on a regular basis. To maintain their high-quality goods with a distinctly urban identity, they are manufactured in the Garment District in New York City. Every item that they produced can be worn in endless ways & endless occasions, and are conceptualised with versatility and utility. 

I have been in love with their products, and here I have chosen 6 items from that I particularly love.

p.s. It's been quite a (LONGGGGG) while for me to write up here, my last update here was in Sept. Sorry for not keeping you all posted, but when you have to work till 9pm almost every night in office, I dare you don't want to turn on your computer at home, but instead getting yourself a nice shower and lie on the bed immediately (by that time it's already 1AM, every one wants to have their beauty sleep). Anyways, since I have just been to Korea last week, I got loads to show you later! If you want more instant updates from me, remember to FOLLOW my Instagram @thetallnshort

THE NORMCORE. Not saying that I am tired of fashionable clothes, but there are always moments that I am rushing to catch my shuttle bus for work, otherwise I am gonna be super late, like going back office at noon, so jeans and tees are my day-to-day best friend. This trend had been categorised as "Chic" by Harper's BAZAAR US #theList a few weeks ago (See the article here). That's part of the reason why I embrace this normcore trend which makes me self-complacent on my day-to-day not-so-suitable working outfit, like what I am wearing in this post. I am proud of this outfit #SorryNotSorry, oops.

FYI. For those who doesn't seem to know what is NORMCORE, here's the newest dictionary meaning:"Normal + Hardcore = Normcore". Normcore (noun) 1. A fashion movement, c. 2014, in which scruffy young urbanites swear off the tired street-style clichés of the last decade — skinny jeans, wallet chains, flannel shirts — in favour of a less-ironic (but still pretty ironic) embrace of bland, suburban anti-fashion attire.

GUCCI PREMIÈRE EAU DE TOILETTE - the everyday fragrance that have a more subtle scent that can freshened up yourself . I feel empowered every time when spraying toilettes on, not to say which brand that I am particularly in love with, but I can ensure you flower blossom/ fruity sweet scents are my all time favourites. 

Back to the topic, as the face of the original Gucci Première Eau de Parfum, Blake Lively, the couture style icon crowned by different magazine publications, reprises her role for this new, softer Eau de Toilette. In the video below, Blake again brings her own brand of feminine strength and assurance to the promotional campaign for this launch. I just simply love her from Gossip Girl, Serena van der Woodsen. Anyways, you can get Gucci Première Eau De Toilette in Sephora. If you wanted to know more about the toilette, click to read more below.

VOGUE SPAIN SEP 2014 "TERRITORIO NEUTRAL". This is one of the editorials that made me want to own all these tops, jackets and minimal accessories into my closet. There are no secrets that I am always in love with the new normcore style, one of the style that is going to be hit according to Harper's BAZAAR US. FYI. Normcore is the unisex fashion trend characterized by unpretentious, average-looking clothing. Here in this editorial, these oversized knits, cashmere blazer, turtlenecks, cocoon coats are almost the basics that you are going to need for this winter, which you think they are normal, but they're actually not if you dare to make a little twist.
