Taula is a luxury jewellery e-commerce that specialises in gold, diamond and precious stone accessories. The name 'Taula' is derived from the Sanskrit word 'Tola', a Vedic measure that refers to 10 grams of pure gold. On the Spanish island of Menorca, the Taula stone megaliths represent what's believed to be an ancient temple of healing and a place for divine worship. This name reflects purity, empowerment and timelessness, characteristics the brand look to install in every one of their pieces. 

The lovely designer behind Taula sent me this gorgeous pendant in pink to complete my Pink Paradise wardrobe essentials. The Geode, originating from Greek for 'earth-like', is a type of rock filled with minerals and what's great about it is that every pendant made from this is unique and one-of-a-kind. Set in 18K yellow gold vermeil, the pendant complements well with my mum's yellow gold chain necklace and bracelet, a perfect example of what Taula is all about, a balance between mixing affordable pieces and luxurious goods together.

Shopping via the e-commerce site is also pretty straightforward and fuss-free. What entices me for any e-commerce site is free shipping, and Taula provides complimentary shipping worldwide, and a guaranteed 7-day return policy for any exchanges or full refund. With an uncompromised quality assurance for all jewellery, you can rest easy in knowing that any items purchased will be worth every cent.

Assembling an outfit with Taula's Grand Geode Vermeil Pendant as the main centrepiece, Aere's Viola faux leather skirt (from their second collection) came to mind. In the sweetest shade of blush, the skirt needs no sprucing up, and works wonders in exuding instant elegance. It comes with an inner lining, so your legs won't feel warm or sticky under all that heavy faux leather, a detail I felt was really well thought of (this comes from owning a few faux leather apparels with no inner lining that just clings to your skin, not attractive in this humid weather of ours). Kudos to Aere for that!

Aere is available on Fashion Valet. Visit their listing page here


Catch you guys next weekend, and hope you have a lovely week ahead!

Paying homage to my favourite colour yet again, this time round featuring Aere's Rosea Top. What sets it apart from the rest is the faux leather zipped cuffs, a superb added detail that makes it really easy for when taking ablution, and this is based on my personal review. Many a times sleeves get stuck mid-way (can't say I have the skinniest of arms) and the struggle to pull it up makes the job tedious. Honestly, it's either I start exercising, or all long-sleeved tops should feature hidden zippers, and you know I ain't giving up on junking. (I know you're thinking, "Well then go buy a bigger sized top, solves the problem!" And my reply would be: "Buy for me!")

Visit Aere here (pssst: they ship to Singapore for free!)

That aside, my love for gladiator sandals is still very much alive, even though I can barely last an hour in these Schutz heels. In fact, it is the most coveted shoe style this summer (although it's perpetually summer all-year round here in Sunny Singa) and here's more options for you to choose from. Flats or heels, these gladiators will sure to amp up your ensemble.

Hope you guys are enjoying the long weekend break. Cheers to the arrival of June, and I hope to see you next time, in shaa Allah.

It's been a long while since the 1st (refer to last post), and I couldn't be more sorry that my time to blog now is limited thanks to a new office job I landed myself in at the beginning of this month. It's been exhausting! You have to understand that this change is new for me, this 5-day work week commitment. My last year in school saw a 3-day curriculum. After graduation, I've only been working part-time retail for a max of 3 days a week as well. Being an adult sucks huh.

Anyway, @thehashtagsg is an Instashop that provides modest wear clothing for locals. I love the lace details on the sleeves, and it doesn't hurt that I felt pretty in it too! Do visit them to see the other colours this dress is available in, and lend a support.

Till the next time!
