Milch ~ Bikini Heaven

Hi ladies!!!

I’m here to introduce to you an awesome bikini shop!

Milch located @Scape Underground B-27 is the brainchild of my personal friend, Joey. She’s passionate and believes in quality over quantity. Which is why Milch provides a variety of bikinis and monokinis in many gorgeous designs but only in limited quantity. One such example would be their star product, the vintage high waist bikinis which are making a huge comeback in the current trends.

Milch have kindly sponsored me and some other gorgeous bloggers two sets of bikinis each. But to put in a fair word, before this I’ve already purchased some items from her shop before this collaboration. If you noted the colorful checkered vintage crop swim top I wore in Phuket Day 3, that was from Milch!

Milch logo ends with a little puppy as Joey herself is a dog lover and have a super adorable Pomeranian.

Milch also ensures that her customers only buys what looks nice on them! She ensures that I try on the pieces that I’ve chosen and that I could fit before allowing me to bring home as I’m blessed with a well endowed chest. Even before if I wanted to purchase something from her, she make sure I head to the changing room first.

Below, is a red polka dot bandeau bikini (U.P $29.90) that I’ve chosen out of the two sponsored sets. The other is the high waist set.

Here’s the high waist piece that I’ve tried on. It’s a bandeau bikini top with a black ruffled high waist bottom (U.P $55). For those who are well endowed like me or just wanted extra security can opt to transform the bandeau into a halter with an additional bikini string.

I’ve actually never done a bikini shoot before as I don’t exactly have the best figure out that. But I figured that taking bikini shots at the beach is better than taking it at home. Haha. Which I’m glad I did because the photos turned out well and I’ve got myself a new blog banner at the same time. 😛

So here’s the set of me wearing the red polka dot bikini.

Me trying to do the fling hair thingy. Turns out pretty good. Hehe.

My current new DP on my social media platforms. The angle is just right.

I like this shot as it gives the illusion that my tummy is flat. I swear I did not photoshop this as I’ve edit all my photos on MTXX on my ipad. All I did was layer on filters and smooth things out. 😛

A more cool looking shot that has a closer look at the bikini. The bandeau top is in between a half and 3/4 cup for me. Pretty secure with the addition of the bikini string for extra support. Wore it for the whole day and there’s no hints of slipping and I don’t have to pull anything. 😛

20130624-163253.jpg

 

Red Polka dot is supposed to be a cute design. So I decided to do a subtle cute pose. Haha.

20130624-163302.jpg

 

Now let’s move on to the star product. The Vintage High Waist Bikini. I’ve picked out this Aztec bandeau top with the black ruffles bottom as it’s a good choice to change the tops. With the black high waist bottom, I can just wear any bikini top I like.

The ruffled details on the front also made the high waist black bottom a little more interesting.

And here’s a walking out of the water shot. No there’s no haze when I did this shoot. It’s just the editing. 😛

Noticed the hand harness that I’ve worn? I’ve purchased this from Milch previously!

 

20130624-163330.jpg

 

Milch carries a range of feet accessories for you to dress up your feet when you’re at the beach. However, I’ve always wanted a hand harness in similar design so I requested for a customized order. Yes, all the accessories at Milch are hand made.

20130624-163315.jpg

Sitting by the beach and waiting for a hunk to approach me shot. LOL. Joking. 😛

20130624-163247.jpg

I personally really like this shot with the wind blowing the hair. Hehe.

20130624-163307.jpg

Ending with a candid shot of me after attempts of flipping the hair. I really like the smile I had on that showed some teeth. And this is really rare cause I don’t usually smile with teeth.

LookBook: Girlish Preppy

It’s had been so long since I last did a look book post. Have been lazy on dressing up and putting on makeup recently. 😛 I even gone bare faced now to work, unless I’ve an event after.

Anyways, was out to the S.E.A Aquarium with the Cousins* last Saturday so I took the chance to dress up.

I name this the Girlish Preppy look.

Outfit Breakdown:

Beret/Bracelets – Forever 21
Top: ZARA
Skirt: BKK
Knee Socks: New Look
Shoes/Bag: Scape Underground

Here’s the make of the day. I opted for something more colorful, more cheery for the eyes and kept the rest simple.

Here’s a closer look at the eye make, it’s a blend of light green, teal and lilac. I used a light shimmery cream shade to highlight the brow bone area. The light green on the inner eyelid, and the inner side of the lower lash line. The teal is on the outer corners.

If you’re wondering where’s the lilac, I used it on the lower lash line and in between the green and teal as a blending color. When using colors, always remember to blend the colors together so it won’t look patchy!

For the eye make, I’ve used 4 colors from my Sleek Mediterranean Palette L.E palette. I’ve also lined my eyes thinly with the Fantastic eyeliner in Secrete Khaki from Kick It Side for a little definition. Mascara wise, I’m using the DollyWink Volume Mascara. Primer wise, I’m using my HG NARS Eye Primer.

For blush, I used Sleek Santorini Blush applied lightly, lips wise I used Rimmel London Lipstick and ZA lip gloss in a baby pink shade.

Foundation wise I had on Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation, set with Urban Decay Razor Sharp HD powder. I’ve also used the YSL Touche Eclat for concealing and highlight.

Hope you like this look!

XOXO,
Joyce.Forensia

BATA’s Spring Summer Bloggers’ Style Contest

Hihi!!

Recently I was invited to Bata’s Spring Summer’13 event to check out their new collection. At the same time, I was invited to join their Blogger’s Style Contest by picking out a bag and a pair of shoes to show of my style for spring!

I personally feel that Spring Summer should be colorful in different bright hues and of course my favorite pastels! Pastels tones more for spring and bright hues for summer! And here’s what I picked up! A bright green clutch that is perfect for a day out or when hitting the pubs at night! I’ve also picked out a super comfy pair of leather flats in cream with mint tip to complement the whole outfit.

How long have it been since you last stepped into a Bata’s store? If you haven been to one in a long time, I urge you to check out the latest Spring Summer collection in the stores and I’m sure you will be surprised. Bata have stepped up their game and came up with a great collection. Do check them out on your next shopping trip and I’m pretty sure something will catch your eye!

Now I need you to do me a favor by liking the above photo at this link! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=477376138983711&set=a.477375752317083.1073741832.225091904212137&type=1&theater

The contest is ending this Friday, 22nd March and I need more likes! So if you have a little time to spare, it would be great! Thanks in advance!

XOXO,

HELLO, SHIBUYA TOKYO

Have you checked out the HELLO, SHIBUYA TOKYO pop up store located at the main atrium of Plaza Singapura yet? If not, do check it out before it ends on the 10th March which means two more days!!

A blend of fashion and culture, HELLO,SHIBUYA TOKYO brings you brands available only in Japan. If you love Japanese fashion like me, you can’t miss this.

Special collaborations with the popular Hello Kitty can be seen in the form of nail stickers. Nail stickers in many fashionable designs are available at affordable prices. Do check them out!

Unique fashion pieces only available in Japan now readily available on our shores, though for a limited period of time.

Specially for the show in Singapore, we have Hello Kitty Nissin Noddles in Chilli Crab flavour, at $2.50 each. These are limited edition, have you gotten yours yet?

Are you an avid Pokemon fan like me? Though nothing like what we have seen from the animes, this figure of Pikachu modeled after a real rat is worth a look.

Or perhaps, you could head down to get one of those limited tote bags (available for purchase) for HELLO,SHIBUYA TOKYO. I think the design is simple and chic.
