NO KA’OI | NET-A-PORTER $135.27
I have always thought that I should invest in a yoga mat, as I do find it kind of unsettling using the general mats at the gym. I scoured though Net-A-Porter and found this beauty!
Made with microfibre and padded with sponge, you will surely feel comfortable throughout your yoga or other exercises. To keep it from moving about, the back has a gum-like texture without imposing the cushioning effect. Machine washable approved, this convenient mat is highly functional and affordable too!

ORAL B | PRICELINE $44.99
I have been using this for over a month now, and to be honest I have not been consistent with the application. Results will vary from person to person, depending on ones’ stains. For me, I do not see a major difference though there is a slight colour change to white after each usage.
What I love about the strips is that it is quite thin, very flexible, so after a few seconds you almost feel nothing is on. Moulding perfectly to the shape of your teeth. It may taste a little funny at the start, because of the tooth whitening gel. It does contain hydrogen peroxide, so be wary if you have very sensitive teeth/gums. I use mine once a day for 30 minutes, but if you want best results, use twice a day and complete 2 packs.

ET CLUB 825.000 RP
Indonesian meanings: Kayu wood ; Barong mythical lion-like creature
When I first laid my eyes on this bag, I knew I had to bring one home. The stunning wooden case, brings a youthful but also exotic base, making it perfect for any occasion. I am not sure what wood they used, unfortunately. What I love especially, is the two colour contrasting knobs and the gold chain, which you can wear as a side bag instead of as a clutch.
There were other bags similar to this, but what bought me is the addition of a Barong on its front. It truly makes it a playful, statement piece, though I do have opposing opinions on the inside texture. Can’t wait to pair it with summer dresses this season!

Other than the eye-catching pink against the black, this packs one mighty punch through a run! I bought this specifically for the half-marathon and I found that the lunarlon foam provided a sturdy support. My ankles were strained after the run, but because of the breathable mesh support my recovery time was less than 2 days.
Extremely lightweight which also provides flexible control, in turns and speeds. The LunarGlide 8 wraps around the foot perfectly, best purchase yet for this year.

AN ORGANISED LIFE $49.95
Well smack, it is halfway through the year and in need to find myself a new diary. The monochrome theme, is far beyond being understated, it is minimalist in a stylish way. If that makes sense? I am definitely excited for their 2017 diary.
Delivered in a black gift box with an accompanying pen. It was extremely cute when it also came with a ‘thank you’ note. Each page, back to back, has a per week schedule outlined. As well as a calendar, pages for notes and monthly overviews, etc. The blinding is great, as it does not break pages off and can lie flat on a desk.
Currently, the main website is out of stock so best to find another retailer. It is a fashionable statement and makes it quite enjoyable filling the pages. Makes a great gift as well!

MARC JACOBS | SEPHORA $25
After almost a month, I have used this rollerball up and I am sad that it is over… the not-so-over-the-top sweet scents of blackberry, grapefruit and pear made everyday smell and feel like I had carried flowers with me. Extremely airy if that makes sense.
Other notes of lychee, jasmine and undertones of white woods, musks and coconut waters made this fragrance a great everyday wear. Not to mention the elegant, gold cap and glass bottle designed with laced daises and golden hues. I absolutely loved this, I felt like a weight was lifted from my shoulders and it actually made everyday a bit brighter.

ELIZABETH AND JAMES | SEPHORA $17
After purchasing a sample, I may consider the full size. If you have not seen the full-sized bottle, it looks beautiful. Clean, pristine, sweet and delicate, just like this scent.
What you will instantly notice, is the feminine detail of peony and chic muguet. It is not overpowering, but just enough to highlight. I have been using it has my everyday scent, because of its timeless simplicity and its effortless blend.

BEAUTY BLENDER | SEPHORA $20
Cute teardrop-shaped compact, keeping you looking chic, comes with a handy inside mirror as well. It is no ordinary compact either, the back is vented and it comes with a clear separator keeping your blotters fresh. The shape of the two sponges given, I find is convenient in reach areas of the face and makes use of the whole sponge.
I say you should convert to this sweet game changer, as you won’t waste paper as you can keep reusing this provided that you clean it often. Soft blots is all that is needed and be sure to keep it dry before usage. Absorption of face oils is perfect and it does not disturb your makeup.
