Last min Valentines Outfit Ideas- 1 Top 4 DayLooks
Saturday, 14 February 2015 | 17:25 |


Happy Valentines Day to all the wonderful couples out there!
And not to forget, Happy Single Awareness day to everyone else too!!
(Haha yesterday, I told my friend Eileen that tomorrow is Single Awareness Day since she said it's Valentines Day tomorrow and she was like 'HAHAHA I am very aware')
Funny girl!
She's single and ready to mingle ya'll!

Oh my... yes I am late again!
It's my yearly routine to do up a Valentines day Outfit ideas post for you girls because it's one of my fav parts of the year.
Spent our 6th Year Together 2 days ago, Roses and teddybears are everywhere, and now it's Valentines Day!

Didn't have time to snap photos for this post till the sun finally rise this morning because it was too hazy for me to go out yesterday afternoon.
Can hardly breath even though the PSI was super low compared to last year's
But I hope i'm not too late for those girls who are nocturnal and only wakes up at 3pm haha
Or those who lives in another part of the world where it's still midnight or something!

I have always wanted to do a post on how to pair 4 different styles with just 1 top or 1 skirt that most of us already have in our wardrobe.
Here's the day!
Hopefully it gives you a little guide on how to pair them according to specific kind of dates you will be going to, or some inspirations to put together your whole outfit.
Just pick out any white top or white bustier/bralet you have from your wardrobe and work with what you have with the help of this post!


I've decided to pair the outfits with this  Furry White Bralet from Statement Muse because it's so versatile.
Since it's furry and cropped, you can dress it either up or down!
They also have a Black and Red version of it so go get them before it's all gone for CNY!


Since i'm the type of person who fancies casual dates over super high class restaurants,
Here are  4 looks that are gonna be for those who will be going for casual afternoon dates or just a fun day out with your friends!


Here goes!



Perhaps you will be surprising your partner with a little picnic that you will be preparing, or pastel colors are just your personal style!
I've always wanted to do a Pastel Picnic with my girlfriends with all the pastel sweet treats and decorations, but we never find the time to haha.
We will soon after they have ended their exams!!




I've put together this last min look by just pairing my furry white bralet with a pastel blue checkered mini skirt.



I'm seriously loving how cute but affordable this skirt is!
It actually comes with a matching blue checkered bralet and the whole set costed only $15.

I personally feel that a knit outerwear for a picnic in Singapore would be too warm so just leave that out if you want to.

But for the sake of those living overseas, you can pair this look with a pastel outerwear like I did!
Depending on where you live, you can layer it according to the temperature your city.
like leggings, thigh high socks or boots!


Added some accessories so it doesn't look too kiddy.
Necklace is also from Statement Muse @ Space Invasion!

A pair of Lilac Babydoll Heels that I have not worn for a REALLY long time, to finish off this sweet look.



Something a little fun and flirty for those girls who loves a pop of color.

I've decided to go for a 50's retro vibe with this Polka Dot Tapered skirt which I scored at the previous Space Invasion Mega Sale for only $15!



Since the orange was too much for me to handle, (haha)
I threw over this Denim Outerwear which my boyfriend lent to me since my only denim jacket which I wore when I was 10 is too small for me :(





Carried a white heart sling and white chunky heels for a more retro vibe.


And you're ready for some FOOD!!
Burgers, Fish & Chips, Root Beer, Tacos, Pizza, Nuggets.
How can fancy food which costs $1000 be compared to all of these!?

Unless you are not planning to eat like a wildboar, you can replace that tapered skirt with a flare midi skirt instead so your tummy wont show at the end of the day hahaha
(judging from so many of my eating experiences)





For those who likes floral, or love the edgy look.
This is perfect for a cafe or a casual restaurant afternoon date with your partner or just a chill day with your girlfriends.
Somewhat one of my fav dates to go to because COFFEE!
No, i'm not a coffee addict, but I love sipping some good coffee occasionally!



Paired my top with a pair of chiffon rose themed skorts, and a gold bucked belt to cinch my waist.
Since most restaurants or cafes in Singapore are air conditioned, i've added on this knitted blazer cardigan.





I used to hate this blazer cardigan so much because it's doesn't really look like a blazer, neither does it look like or as is comfy as a cardigan.
But i'm loving the gold spike accents on the shoulder though!
I'm glad i'm finally able to bring it out today.



New velvety red boots that are super comfy, which i've thrifted for $20 a few days ago.
Can't stop wearing this everywhere I go!

, Since the whole outfit looks kinda heavy on my body, I'm topping it off with a wide brimmed hat for an accessory for my head to balance it out

What I love about this look is that you can transform your whole outfit  from day to night by just changing up the floral skorts to a darker colored skirt!



Perfect for those who likes simplicity, and prefers comfort over anything.






Denim never goes out of style and matches with everything so i'm pairing my furry white bralet with this denim tapered skirt that is a little bit special because of the fake tie sleeves. 



Carrying this white sling bag again because with a sling, your hands will always be free all the time which gives you so much room for activities :P



If you will be doing loads of activities like going to an amusement park, maybe high heels won't be too appropriate for the date so i'm pairing it with this comfy white strappy sandals with a tiny heel just for a little bit of height.

If you don't have a denim skirt, denim shorts is perfect too!
Just tie a button down shirt over your waist and pair it with a pair of combat boots to jazz the outfit up a bit, and you are ready for a day of fun!


So here are 4 different styles i've put together for different kinds of casual dates!
You don't need the exact item or the exact color and prints as mine.
They are just some ideas for you to put together your last minute Casual Vday Outfits by just working with what you have in your closet!


I did a Valentines Day Makeup Tutorial last year so you can check it out here if you want:
http://www.lindsayvoitton.com/2014/02/valentines-day-makeup-giveaway.html

It's more of a night look. Try going less in the day!
Please don't mind my overly drawn eyebrows,  yes I know they are like crayon drawn. It was last year and seeing it now, they are overly disturbing to look at HAHA
And also I realize that my grey lenses totally look like those round lights they shine at you when you are at the dentist lol.
Dafug was I thinking.


And also 2 more Valentines Day posts from last year!

Since Valentines Day is here, most of the posts on 9gag are about Valentines Day.
And I have already seen so many comments and different life stories on the Valentines Day posts about guys/girls getting dumped or got cheated on by the love of their life, getting into depression, their life crumbling into pieces to the verge of committing suicide.

Not sure if some are trolling, but it's definitely heartbreaking to know that there are many people out there who feels Valentines Day is torturing, reminding themselves about what and who they have lost.
But don't give up!
Enjoy this day with your friends or just by treating yourself with a lovely home spa! :)
Because in order to stay happy, you gotta love yourself first.
Positive Vibes will give you a positive life!


So hopefully every single one of you, attached or not,  will be having a great day today :)

I'm so grateful for my boyfriend for snapping these photos for me early this morning.
Couldn't thank him enough for everything..

Anyway just a sudden realization.


14 times in total.
Because.. yeah it's Valentines Day.

See you on my next post

Oreo Crushed Brownies for Lazy People
Saturday, 31 January 2015 | 04:54 |


(If you look closely, the top part of the cake is kinda gone cuz it was devoured by me once it was out of the oven)

Just made some oreo crushed brownies cuz bf and I are such sweet tooths and he has been treating me like a princess, cooking good food for me the past few weeks. 

So I was thinking why not do up a little tutorial too and put it up here for those who wants to bake something for their bfs/gfs this Valentine's day! 

Btw, just a disclaimer:


Hahahh



And yup only for lazy people (like me) or someone who just want's the fast & easy way out!
Because making it from scratch is only for professionals :P
And I'm definitely not one of them, so don't blame me if yours doesn't turn out looking like you expect it to be!!

It's my first time adding crushed oreos into my brownies so I was praying it will turn out fine.
Not really a tutorial though because I'm making it from a box so the instructions given are either common sense or already written behind the box.
But oh wells!! Just documenting it for fun :P

Professional bakers, please don't scold me!!



Here are the things i used to make my oreo crushed brownies!



Used 2 boxes instead of 1 because we are greedy like that.



Simple instructions, simple ingredients!



Since i'm using 2 boxes, i used x2 of each ingredient required.
So 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 cup of vegetable oil 



Your baking pan and Baking Paper
Oh!! And if you are using 2 boxes, it's better to use a larger baking pan or it will take a long long time to bake.
Mine took quite a number of tries to get the brownie to bake all the way through because it was a little too thick



Mah baking tools!


Oreeoooss!


And 2 eggs!
(One only required if you decide to only use 1 box)


Break the egg, and stir it gently
Don't whisk it vigorously though cuz we don't want the brownie to be fluffy, but dense instead.


Adding all of them in the bowl!







Hahah!
Next, just mix the flour in!


Not really a lazy-person move because a lazy person would use a mixing machine instead.
But just stir them goodness in till..


...it becomes a smooth viscous texture.

Try to get rid of any air bubbles too!

(Seriously don't know why I am typing all of these because the photos are kinda self-explanatory hahah)


Now for the best part.
Oreos!!
Cuz everybody loves Oreos.. right?

Btw I came across some people in the 9Gag comments asking if they are the only ones who hates oreos and how they are over rated.
SERIOUSLY THO T_T why would you say that!?



Haha okay so next, break them into chunks!


And get ready to pour those addictives into the brownie mixture!




Stir to distribute the oreos evenly.
How sad, I forgot to leave some extra chunks to sprinkle them at the top of the mixture once it's in the pan.
I swear it would make a huge difference to the appearance of your brownie!


You can use oil or butter, but I personally prefer using baking paper to line my pan so it's easier to transfer my whole brownie onto another plate once it's done!


Super fast and easy.
Just trace around the base of your baking pan, cut around about 2cm larger, and cut some strips about 4-5cm in width for the sides.


This is how it should look like!
I always feel that we should always use a rectangle/square pan for brownies so we can easily cut them into squares.
But it's fine, a round pan for me will do!!

Pre-heat your oven according to the temperature & time stated on your box.
For me, it took WAAAYYY longer and a few tries until it was fully baked


And you're done!
Your Oreo's that are submerged in your brownie mixture will definitely melt while it's being baked which makes your brownies taste like Oreo's!
But if you sprinkle your Oreo's at the top layer before putting it in the oven, (which I didn't), it will turn out looking really pretty.

(Yes I went out to get more Oreo's while baking so I can decorate it to look photo worthy haha)




Loving my own DIY jar mug.
Will post a complete tutorial on making your own once i've mastered it!

Oh! And they've included this Hershey's Chocolate Syrup in the box.
If you want EXTRA chocolate, then pour that onto your brownie!
But I already felt that the Oreo's already made my brownies extra chocolaty so i'm I prefer it the way it is.

So just a few reminders for my next try and also some things for you to take note  :
1) Use a rectangle baking pan
2) Use a larger pan so the mixture can be cooked all the way through
3) Leave some Oreo's for the top layer

Prep time was only about 15-20 mins!
It's my first try so it didn't turn out like what I visioned it to be.
BUT THE TOP LAYER IS SO CRISPY AND CHEWY I LOVE IT SO MUCH T_T
Try making it yourself and you would know what I mean!

I mean.. you could never go wrong with a box brownie.. right?
haha
