7 days, 7 inspirations

1) my interview article w/ Anna-Karin Karlsson published in Neighbor magazine
Neighbor is a Korean luxury lifestyle magazine
remember this post I originally published 2 months back?
I translated the interview in Korean and wrote a little background of the designer
and now it's out featured in Neighbor magazine for August issue
(officially out on the 1st of August but I got one yesterday)
so if you want to read what my interview was about,
click the link above (post) for original interview

The collection can be pre-ordered at
so check it out and see the full collection photos
they are so fabulous just like the fashionista designer herself! :)

2) shrimp fried rice
obsessed with fried rice even in this high heat of temperature + humidity (my mom made me this for lunch)

3) do you love bike?
I do, even though I may not be so great at exercise
but I do try to live my life in a healthy way
health + beauty = all connected
I can never go on a diet by eating just salad or drinking water for alternative meals

shirt NIKE
shorts FOREVER 21

4) Girard-Perregaux
WW.TC Only Watch 2011

this exceptional watch is going to be auctioned on
September 22nd, 2011 at Monaco profits donated to
research into duchenne muscular dystrophy

-titanium oxide used in the middle case
-tinted sapphire crystal used in the back case w/ water resistant of 100 metres
-automatic self-winding movement

they are quite experimental looks

brunch w/ urban bloggers (Urban Space bloggers meeting)

my nail looks these days
used CND effect to finish off looking shinier
added some sparkles by putting on
glitter liners and nail stones

didn't intend to but my look became kind of

as soon as I arrived @Urban_Space
at around 1:40? (arrived kind of early...
originally we were supposed to meet up at 2 PM)
I saw these three products waiting for us
you can think of facial toner as the mist type,
shower gel great for cooling off summer heat,
& mask that can be used like facial scrub product
(all available at

there were originally 10 invited bloggers
as you can see if you count the bags
I was among 8 bloggers who actually came
(while waiting for others, I drank hot herb tea
since I was too cold at every places I went that day being too cooled
from non-stop air conditioning)

there are three types of toners
but the one I received was
it is perfect for those who have oily skin like I do
(and for others who have acne troubles-blemish)
I decided to use this as my body mist
after I take a shower I sprayed on all over my face,
legs and arms so I can feel non-sweaty but instead very refreshed
120mL it is 41,000 Korean won

body wash was very moisturizing and was great for detox
It is so affordable being 25,000 Korean won at 240mL
(what I love about every product sells at Urban Space is that
I can feel as if I'm at the spa using these products)

this product won beauty awards for home spa treatment already 6 times
great for moisturizing, peeling effect, softening
and for reducing wrinkles (I say 'anti-aging' needs to start as soon as possible)
the price is 63,000 Korean won for 120 mL

Pangea Organics promote
"Accentuate the Positive, Eliminate the Negative"
I love how the brand donates 5% of its sales to
(that's a lot if you think about it)
Women for Women International and The Jane Goodall Institute

one more thing I love about the place
you can test every product as you wish
and go wash your hands right away using Mistral hand wash
at the corners it provided with
(on the second floor the spa uses pangea organics handwash-in foam type)

look at all those jojoba oils :)

outside look of Urban Space
looks so beautiful with all the products displays
and the gardens' harmony right?
hope you can feel the message of all the
being pure, natural and organic these brands portray

what it says
1) every visitor gets hand treatment service
2) after you sign up for the Urban Space membership (easy process)
you get samples that works for your skin types/conditions

so after we were all met with each other (us bloggers I mean)
we walked the street across to find one brunch cafe
called "Oasis"

by the way one of the bloggers suddenly called ourselves
"urban bloggers" in a way to call ourselves bloggers for Urban Space
quite loved the sound

i ordered iced green tea latte

today's lunch pasta
(which was plain cream pasta w/ mushrooms and bacon)

let's take a look at all the food we ordered at our table
(most ordered french toasts and pasta so I'll show you
my side of table's dishes only;
we used two tables so yea you see what I mean)

pancakes are always better to be dipped into sauce
as you cut the slices
if you put the sauce the whole thing
it's too wet and spongey aren't they?

hawaiian french toast

scarf ZARA
dress H&M
sunglasses LOUIS VUITTON

the "how should I pose?" pose... ha...

thanks to Urban Space for lovely brunch & meeting :)
