We're entering June and that means it's time for a May Favs post!
One of my favourite #TTR outfits of May has to be this.
Clan Straight Legs Culottes in Nude Pink!
Currently on backorder now along with all the other colours – Navy, Camel and Ash Blue.
Lace top (omg can't even remember the name cause it's been too long) is an old design from TTR. I think 4 years back if I'm not wrong. 😂 Should we bring it back again?? I really like it leh.
Another item I got really obsessed with is this Burt Embroidery Top. After I wore the White, I went to the website and kept the Pink for myself too. Lolz. 😶
Last but not least!!!
Tropez Eyelet Bralet in White! Sadly this is sold out on site already but we might be opening backorder for it…? Join the waiting list if you want backorder for this pretty eyelet piece!
Bet some of you saw this coming. 😂
Of course I had to include these Taggloo Ear Poms. It's been worn to death.
I had such a struggle trying to pick a fav between the three colours I kept. White was the most worn butttttt I think Grey looks cuter!!
I wore the White ones out with ZL once. The other day I met him wearing the Grey pair and he actually noticed that the Grey pair longer and furrier. 😱
This coming from a guy who didn't even realise that my hair colour changed from brown to pink. VERY IMPRESSED LOLOL.
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer is also what I've been loving this month! ✨
It's one of those things I had no intention of purchasing before walking into Sephora. Squeezed a dollop onto the back of my hand and I WAS SOLD.
The texture is gel-like and transparent. And it makes my base glides on so smoothly. And it's oil free! Really liking everything about this except for the smell. Haha. It smells a little plasticky but I guess I can live with that since this product is so amazing.
My current go-to for setting powder is the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores.
Anything which promises to make my pores go away? YES PLEASE.
The translucent powder is extremely fine and it really does what it says. They give off a blurring effect and my pores magically look smaller whenever I use this.
I use this with a non pore minimising primer and it works just as well!
Compared to my Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder, this is slightly more milled and the texture feels way finer. I also like that it has oil controlling properties.
Super recommend this!! 💕
I WAS SO HAPPY WHEN I REALISED THAT MY FAV MASCARA CAME OUT IN BROWN. Sorry for shouting at you all in caps but yaaaa I was so excited to see this at Watsons!
I got this same mascara in black a month ago when they didn't have it in brown.
This is your regular Heroine Make mascara BUT BETTER. Cause you can remove it with warm water and facial wash!! 🎉
I really love Heroine Make's mascaras because they are so smudge proof and natural but they are such a bitch to remove.
And I obstinately refuse to buy specific makeup removers just to remove them.
This is such a star!!
And it's in brown!!!!
It's called the Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara Advanced Film in Brown. Go grab it from Watsons please. So good.
Skincare wise… This was a surprise favourite.
Don't even know the name cause all Jap words haha.
My skin went crazy last week just before my trip and none of my moisturisers reacted well with it. Every single moisturising serum/essence/lotion just made it worse. It was dry and itchy and red and patchy and I just wanted to cry.
Decided to give this a try when I was walking around NTUC (lol sorry auntie life) shopping for my travel necessities.
AND IT WAS SUCH A LIFE SAVER. Or rather, skin saver.
This formula is really gentle on the skin but it keeps my skin soft and moisturised at the same time. My skin was so calm after I applied this and I was really thankful to have found a moisturiser which doesn't further aggravate my sensitive skin. 🙏🏻
A vvvv good and basic product to have in your skincare routine and it helps that this is so affordable too!!
Was very desperate for a mask to calm my skin last month and found this Leaders Insolution AC Dressing Skin Clinic Mask. This does great in making the red patches go away.
But am not a fan of the strong scent. It doesn't smell bad but anything which is so perfume-y just makes it seem less legit…? HAHAHA. Idk. I have weird logic. 😂
Initially only bought one to try because it's expensive at $3.70 per mask. Then it worked so well that I went back to Watsons and stocked up on this. Lol.
Another Origins mask made it to my favourites this month.
This Out Of Trouble wash off mask has a minty/herb-y smell to it and it reminded me of a DrX blemish mask I used to own and love!
Had a few red spots which subsided the next day after I put this on. Pretty impressed by this cause I wasn't expecting much hahaha. I only apply this on my problem spots tho. And my tzone!
Have a few other non #dayrebeauty favourites to share but lemme settle dinner first!! 👌🏻
An item I've been wearing every day ever since I received it in the mail!
Used to own a DW but the battery ran out and I never bothered to replace it. And also, stopped wearing it cause it seemed like everyone else owns a DW watch. Haha. 🙃 Recently the DW marketing team emailed me and asked if I would like to pick out a watch to feature on my IG.
Was so exhilarated when I found out that they carry mesh straps now! Mesh straps are my fav kinda straps for watches.
They are so feminine looking and can suit both dressy and casual outfits!
Am not obliged to post this on Dayre at all, but thought it deserves a rightful mention in my May Favs post because this is something that I would definitely purchase for myself even if they didn't send it to me. ☺️💓
This is the Melrose Petite and they have it in a really gorgeous black face too. REALLY HAD A HARD TIME DECIDING BETWEEN WHITE AND BLACK. 😩
I have a discount code for 15% off till 31 July if you're keen to make any purchase off their website. It's <17Joyce>!
Found this pouch somewhere at home a few weeks back and I was so happy. Bought this when I was in Aussie two years back cause I wanted a roomy yet handy pouch to carry my makeup items around, and this one is of the perfect size for me.
Then I guess it got lost somewhere amongst my pile of things for a long while. So glad to have found this again while decluttering!
Love it for its spaciousness and detailing. The workmanship of this is really good as well. Ahhhh I really adore this. 😍
The size of this is really good. 👌🏻 I can throw everything in and there's still room. Lol. The only downside is, I can't bring this along when I use small bags. The upside to that is that this doubles up as a small clutch. Hahaha. So I guess it all balances out. ✨
Fav convo of the month:
"You smell like a fish tank.."
"Huh????? 😨😨😨 What do you mean?"
"Oh actually… Not fish tank. I mean you smell like you just came back from a swim."
So now I always ask him if I smell like a fish tank. Who wants to smell fishy please. LOLOL. I think he meant that I smell like I'm freshly bathed….? 🐳 Sometimes the things he say can be exasperatingly funny.
