I would like to turn my blog away from beauty product reviews and incorporate more health and lifestyle posts. My definition of beauty has changed quite recently. I believe health is the single most important aspect of life. When I don't feel good, I am basically Mrs grumpy pants and it affects everyone around me. When I'm healthy, I feel great and I'm happy and in turn, that helps the people around me. You get back what you put out!

Remember my part 1 x-23 post which detailed my design and thought process for my costume? Well I finally finished my costume some months ago and managed to shoot in it with the one and only Darkforce cosplay in his amazing wolverine cosplay. Do we make a sexy team? Michael from Vestiige photography took charge of the artistic direction for this shoot and we explored a new location, the old abandoned Boral factory.
I'm currently working on getting my abs back for Supanova with intermittent fasting (leangains) paired with bulletproof coffee in the mornings.

In my opinion, green eyes are probably the hardest colour for asians to pull off. Somehow I even think purple/pink lenses look more natural than green, but I was intrigued when the lovely girls at Klenspop suggested their best selling Bunny 3 Color Green lenses for review.

The third and most glamorous of my minimalistic picks from Tobi.com is the Goddess-like Wilhelmina maxi dress. This piece is right up my alley. When in doubt I always go for a white dress to make a statement. This dress is made of a stretch jersey material which is thin and curve-hugging, but does not look it. I love that I can wear a regular bra underneath it! I did make one alteration where I tacked the front sections together higher up to cover my chest more decently. If you are well endowed you probably don't need to do this.
I kept my regular mess of hair deep parted to the side and slipped on some nude heels and gold waterfall earrings to enhance the 'glow'. The beautiful yellow sunlight helps too! Thank you Oscar for capturing these shots, we make a great team.

Grey has a cool air of mystery about it. Grey eyes, grey hair and this Veronica cut out dress from Tobi.com are my obsessions at the moment. Sleek and chic, it features a side twist detail and a sexy slash across the abdomen. I prefer to dress down this piece with ankle boots, a leather jacket and a dishevelled bed head of waves. Throw on a blazer and it can also be appropriate for work!
All photos taken down the road from my place on the fishing jetty. Perth is a-ok. I often Snapchat the views @kimmimod, let's follow each other! All photos taken by Oscar, much kudos for your labour of love and thank you for the fun times.

Since my huge closet clean out, I've been hard pressed finding comfortable outfits to wear out at night. Long gone are my high heeled, bandage dress wearing days! Luckily Tobi approached me to style 3 pieces from their site, and being on a lifestyle minimalist kick, I chose 3 classic monochromatic pieces. The first and my favourite is the Adriana wrap dress. I love the loose, kimono style butterfly cut which is as comfortable as it is classy. Usually I avoid deep V necks but this is one of the rare dresses where my lack of cleavage works in my favour!
As the dress has a casual, baggy cut, I added in some horizontal lines with some strappy stilettos, a simple leather chocker and my Trifoglio watch. The sleek side parting is also a new hair venture! What do you think?
All daylight photos taken by my amazing friend Oscar who spends his precious weekends shooting with me. Please check out his work!

And now for something a bit different, behold my first male product review! When it comes to male vs female targeted products, I feel like the only major differences are the packaging and the scent. This set confirmed that to a T. Rumour had it that the BB cream would be a darker shade than normal Korean BB creams, read on to find out if I found another darker BB cream to add to my collection!
