TF3 - Dark of The Moon (but CARLY is bright)


Well, well, well... These mean machines from Cybertron have come a long way. After watching all three movies, my excitement has transformed into boredom at TF3 – Dark of the Moon. These are all about violent duels between Autobots and Decepticons.

Fortunately, one aspect caught me by surprise. It is Carly Spencer played by our very own ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY. I am just speechless. Her character screams feminine and sexy for all woman kind! J This is further complimented by her equally sexy car, Mercedes SLS AMG. This ‘package’ just burned out Megan Fox





As with previous TF movies, this is very action pack. 3D viewing is way to go if it is within your budget.

Goodyear Vector 4Seasons


You have been a loyal user of premium brand tryes for more than 10 years. You have been satisfied and comfortable with your choice. Then the economic uncertainty dons. They have taken the decision to discontinue your tyre size due to low demand. You are unable to use other sizes as it does not meet your car specifications.

The moral           : Premium brands are unappreciative of loyalist as they always prioritise profits.

What to do now? : This is a good reason to change to economical tyre brands. Sometimes they are almost as good as or better than premium ones. They usually have a larger customer base and rarely abandon customers. They also have bigger sales and support networks. If luxury cars can choose them as OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer), they are definitely not sub-standard or low quality.

During economic uncertainties, try using all-season tyres such as Goodyear Vector 4Seasons. These will be cheaper and less troublesome than having seasonal tyre sets. Now, you have surplus finance to go for that desired fashion shopping spree. What am I saying here? Just kidding ;-)

AMY WINEHOUSE - Uniquely messed-up

RIP AMY WINEHOUSE 14 SEP 1983 - 23 JUL 2011 

I hate waking up to this type of news repeatedly. Why is this happening? Why they leave us so soon? Why they are not given a chance to improve or get cureL? Arggghhh...

I am aware of her messed-up life. This is not the reason I am not her fan. She is just not my celebrity type. Undeniably, she sets all stars apart with her unique beehive hair and Cleopatra-like eye shadows style. These projected her singing talent. Britain will be quieter without her notoriety. She will most certainly be missed from fashion news. RIP AMY... L
  
Before her bizzare style tranformation, Amy was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in Sept. 2004 for her album ‘Frank’

Amy was named Best British Music Act at the ELLE Style Awards in Feb. 2007

Poor AMY singing about her ordeal...? L

Green Lantern - Green is in!



Hooray! One more comic superhero brought to life at the silver screens. Who better to play the role of the woman behind this successful superhero than the stunning BLAKE LIVELY?  Do we adore her? I do! J Though her character, Carol Ferris, is reminiscent of Serena Van Der Woodsen, she still gets my thumbs up for her role. What disappoints me most is the lack of life and colour of women’s costume and fashion L Maybe this is not the highlight of the movie. Other than the green themed costumes of the Lanterns, women’s fashion is to the minimum. Nevertheless, improving in this aspect will do no harm. It may life up this movie more ;-) 

Being green and able to conjure anything makes the Green Lantern makes the perfect guardian of nature. As with all superhero movies, the fight between good and evil is expected. However, the element of personal character building and discovery certainly makes us reflect. These make it different from other superhero movies that I can think of that I have watched. I do not want to be a spoiler. You have to watch to know more. I must disagree that the portrayal of good is beautiful and bad as ugly. L This may mislead viewers in relation to reality. This is definitely bad!

In conclusion, this is a very good superhero movie and a must for this summer. Rest assured that RYAN REYNOLDS will not disappoint J

Royal Elegance in Temperley Moriah or Dstysionist Whitennis?






 White has been approved a seasonal extension! Fashion duchess did it perfectly at Wimbeldon 2011 with Temperley's Moriah dress. Unless you have a slender physique like our fashion duchess, this layered skirt section is extremely hazardous and a 'NO, NO'! If worn by the wrong fashionista, she may end up looking like a cake or mermaid with scalesL


Maybe you can try Whitennis (WHIte TENNIS)? It is inspired by the tennis ball. Rest assured you will not end up looking like one. Its strap lines give you a slender feminine appearance. The unique sleeves can be detached for variation and sexy appeal. Lets play ;-) !

Tone down my duchess...

A full view of her dress our duchess wore at ARK. This design emphasises all her strengths. Such glamour...

Links of London Effervescence Stiletto earrings worn again to celebrate Prince Philips's 90th birthday at an intimate family meal at The Waterside Inn in Berkshire! Here again we see our fashion duchess signature style. You already shine with your style. This ensemble is too bright, your duchess. You have to tone down because too much of anything is bad. Notice the centre front attachment of her dress to project her height. It balances the frilly neckline of her blouse. Apart from the colour of this dress, it gives our duchess her desired elegant image. Way to go again, your duchess ;-)

Fashion is U, NOT what is on!

 For Clive Davis' Pre-Grammy Gala earlier this year, US singer Ciara ensured all eyes were on her by keeping the lacing on her gorgeous micro mini Emilio Pucci dress loose and pairing it with lashings of diamond accessories.

Kylie, meanwhile, took a more conservative approach when she wore the same dress to a theatre opening night last month; pulling it in tighter, and adding two actual feathers for a neat styling one-two.




The usual frustrating scenarioL: You came across a celebrity image. You love it! You purchase her frock. You don them feeling full of confidence. Later, your mates make fun. Worse still, they gossip. Feeling frustrated, you try to figure what went wrong in your hard earned investment.

Why celebrities look good in that and I DO NOTL? These reasons are below:

1.    Professionally styled – Most celebrities have sought fashion stylist or designer services. Their ensemble has been designed or selected to suit their personality or image. Their hair style, earrings, handbag etc. are set for them professionally.

2.    Personal touch – As evident in this example, one dress or apparel can be worn in many styles. It really depends on YOU.

3.    Everybody is different – The celebrity image that you saw may have a different physical appearance to you. What suits them may not work for you.


The solution:

1.    DO NOT follow blindly – This is self-explanatory.

2.    Follow your heart – Celebrities’ image is a guide. Conclusively, you must feel comfortable. That is KEY!

3.    Seek professional service – This is for the serious fashionista. If you do not have a mate in this field, lucky you because I am available!
