Travel

 photo DSC_0418_1.jpg
I just got back from Singapore a day ago and I had a splendid time spending the holiday with my boyfriend and being around people who were so lovely that made my holiday a great experience. I think I spent just the right amount of time in Singapore to keep me sane. I'm going to be travelling again this week to Chiang Mai with my family. Rather tired but am quite excited to go to Chiang Mai as it is going to be my first time there. I decided to update my blog before I leave for Chiang Mai but I won't be blogging about my trip to Singapore as I didn't take much photos - just wanted to enjoy every moment as it it. I will most probably be blogging about my trip to Chiang Mai so stay tuned for that! I was quite disappointed at the range available in Singapore. I was expecting a better and bigger range of products from different brands but it turned out to be very much similar to the range available in KL. I did get a few items from Singapore along with some items I recently bought here in Penang. My favourite at the moment has got to be the faux fur ankle strap heels from Charles & Keith. It's currently unavailable in Malaysia and I'm not too sure if they will bring it in but whoa, I love the shoe. The earrings came along with the choker as it was a buy 1 free 1 promotion. Honestly, other than the heels, the other items were meh

Oh I did buy a cute itsy bitsy tiny little Elmo soft toy from USS that I just love squeezing, thats another thing from Singapore I really like. Other than that, the shopping experience in Singapore was not as good as I hoped for it to be (P.S - I did go to Orchard Road. Didn't go to Bugis coz I didn't enjoy it the last time). Maybe I just didn't visit the right places. Overall I had a splendid time at Singapore and was definitely one to remember. Till here, I will blog when I am back from Chiang Mai. Hope you're all well!

 photo DSC_0446u.jpg Oh look, I'm wearing jeans! Like, hey, I'm wearing pants! Seriously though, I've been getting into wear this 'long pants phase' at the moment. I'm an island girl who lives in an all year round summer country and it is very rare, and I mean really rare, for me to even purchase pants. Its always either short skirts and shorts for me but I'm kinda liking this small change. This is my only pair of ripped boyfriend jeans and I really like the fit of it. Paired it with this lovely and super comfortable heels to again, try to take away the stumpiness of my short legs. Oh by the way, sorry for the constant hand-in-hair shots, the wind was blowing my hair like mad.

Right, I wore this when I was out with Claire, my awesome-possum bestie who came back to Penang. It was nice to spend time with her and just catch up and talk about nonsense like the possibility of asking Snape or Lucius Malfoy to donate hair to Voldemort. Who even talks about rubbish like that?! It has been so long since we hung out together and of course with Kieran as well which adds on to all the nonsense. Its really nice when you find someone you can really talk to, emotional and retarded conversations.

Here is a mandatory shot of us both (below)! Selfies can be seen on my Instagram. Anyways, in two days I'll finally be going on my first holiday with Kieran.Personally, I think if we went on a holiday alone when we first started dating, it would be horrible because what if we spent all the money and ended up not being together after the holiday? What if we didn't know about each other's annoying habits that might annoy each other? All the possibilities of it being a crappy one was high and I didn't like that idea. Also because after 3 years, you know what your partner is really like and you know that you're in love (for real) which makes the holiday way better. I'm really looking forward to spending nice quality, alone time with him outside of Penang. I have to go dig out my luggage and try to do some packing now, so till here, you'll hear from me after my holiday! Follow my Instagram @ncavien to keep up with my little Avien Adventures (hahahaha how lame can I even get?! I need to hashtag that) to Singapore. Oh, I'm also going for a family holiday right after I come back from Singapore so there will be loads to see on my Instagram and also on my blog. So stay tuned and I hope you're all well! Nx

I think if you scroll through my Instagram or my blog, you would know I'm not a big fan of pants or anything long of sort that would cover up my short, stumpy legs. I'm a short girl - 158cm short - and most of the times pants or anything covering up my entire legs could and most probably make me look shorter than I am unless I wearing some sort of platform or heels. Taking small steps to learning how to find and wear the right pants that suits my shorty legs. Anyway, I finally had the time to go watch Avengers: Age of Ultron with Kieran so I decided to put together this simple pant outfit. The movie honestly, in my opinion, was good, but not as good as the previous movie. However, I'm bloody excited for all the other movies leading up to the final one. Okay, back to this outfit shall we?

The pants - leggings - are honestly quite comfortable. It's supposed to be tight and body hugging but I personally prefer sizing up for this particular leggings because I think it just looks better. Again, it really depends on you body type and whether you like it or not. Decided to take my Longchamp out after what seems like forever of not using it. Oh and the shoes, really comfortable, not even joking. Bought it off Zalora where you can get 15% off with the code ZBAPPK4.

Also, I've been featured on Tally Press's Top 10 Malaysian Female Fashionistas which was through a voting poll. I came in 5th and thats really awesome, so thanks to those who voted and to everyone who still continues to read my blog and follow me on my social media platforms. Its just a very short write up but I still feel honoured to be on the list among the other Malaysian fashionistas who are part of the list. Until here, hope you're all doing well! Nx
