SLEEPING MASKS TALK

Beverly Ville

Let's talk about sleeping masks shall we? From different combinations of skin types to over a hundred choices of masks to choose from, finding the perfect mask for your skin can be a real pain. I've boiled down to 3 of my all time favourites which are all quite different, and I hope this will be helpful for you! I tend to lean towards Asian skin care products as I feel it is more suitable for my skin. However, what works for me may not work as well for you! I suggest that you request for little sample bottles before purchasing the product.

Beverly Ville

1) innisfree Orchid Sleeping Pack – When I first tried this, I immediately fell in love with the scent. This mask's texture is more jelly-like based, it harnesses the potent antioxidant benefits of the Orchid Elixir to reverse damages caused by the sun, pollution, and other free radicals. I tend to reach for this the most and I use this 3-4  times a week and the scent actually puts me to sleep. My skin feels rejuvenated and fresh after using this mask.

2) Origins Drink-Up Intensive Overnight Mask – Yes I know some of you may be thinking that this isn't an Asian brand. This however, works wonders for my skin. From what I'm told, I have really dehydrated skin. Sometimes I wake up and the areas around the tip of my nose and mouth are peeling. But after applying this mask, my face actually feels refreshed and moisturised in the morning - no flaky skin too. Plus, I cannot even begin to describe how delicious this mask smells, it's like an apricot/mango smoothie. p.s: I use this mask once a week.

3) LANEIGE Water Sleeping Mask – Ah, this mask is probably no stranger to many. This hydrating  mask is suitable for all skin types plus it doesn't feel sticky. There is a very mild scent and one bottle lasts a long way. After using this mask, my face is visibly brighter and moisturised. I alternate between this and the innisfree Orchid mask and there's no winner. Both works equally well for my skin!

I hope this may be helpful to some of you, I'm no beauty expert and this is more of what works for my skin type!

Hey my loves, I hope you guys had an amazing start to 2017!  Dan and I have been busy planning this year's travels and I'm so excited to announce that we've locked down 4 countries so far! (whee hoo) I've also been occupied compiling the footage I shot from the last 2 weeks of December, the vlog will be uploaded on my very dead Youtube channel before the end of this month. And yes, I wanted to thank everyone of you who have followed my journey ever since I started this blog – hello to you if you're new around here! 2017 is going to be an amazing year, #yas!

FIND WONDER.

Beverly Ville
And here we are again, closing up another chapter whilst opening another one altogether. I'm not gonna lie, it has been a truly amazing year for me. I remember stating in last year's post that 2015 was more of a continuation into 2016 and indeed, it felt just like that. I will not be doing a photo timeline here (on Instagram Stories instead) this year, but let's take a walk down memory lane together. 

January- February: Bangkok - Chiangmai - Bangkok | March - April: USA | May: Cebu, Phillipines | June: Bangkok | July: Guangzhou, China | August: Batam | September: Vietnam | October: Batam

I've never travelled so much within a span of 10 months but I loved every moment of it. 2017 is going to be nothing short of amazing - new projects, clearer goals and exciting travels.

Beverly Ville
These are the best parts of my #2016. 

-My relationship with Dan has grown stronger than ever. 
-My eldest sister Amanda, got married in the States, and I had the honour of being one of her bridesmaids.
- I got to snowboard with Dan and my family for the first time.
- I've travelled to beautiful cities with amazing friends.
- I've lost some friends but I feel lighter and happier.
- I have my dream room to work and create in.
- I've had the best ever Birthday and Christmas celebrations with loved ones whom I hold so dear to my heart.
- Knowing that there is no greater power in the Universe than the power of love.

In summary, I hope 2017 will be a kind and fulfilling year for all of you reading this. Remember, make space for what matters and you have to do what you dream of doing even while you're afraid 💫

Merry Christmas everyone! I've had an amazing time with my loved ones, and I hope you guys did too! In true holiday spirit, I've recreated last year's look. No doubt, I'd go for a silk piece this time. Don't you just think that emerald green and gunmetal grey go so well together? That explains last year's color palette choice too. I love how GRANA leaves us spoilt for choice in their wide selection of colors and fabrics. I've chosen yet another silk dress, (I know guys, I can't help myself when there are festive colors involved) which I will be styling in a NYE's post! And as there can never be too many Christmas parties, cart out with some holiday pieces with the code 'AMELYNxGRANA'!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

All my love x

Beverly Ville
For those who are in need of last minute gift ideas, here are some gifts for both him and her! The items I've listed below make great gifts and stocking stuffers as well, they say it's the little things that count am I right?

Beverly Ville
for Her: innisfree Green Christmas scented candles and nail polish set. Nothing sets the mood right like festive candles do, a perfect duo for a cozy night in or over a dinner together. Get them at your nearest innisfree store.

Beverly Ville
for Him and Her: La Senza plaid panty and ASOS boxer briefs. Now these are without a doubt essentials, and I mean what can go wrong with little gingerbread men all over your undergarment? Get his here and hers here

Beverly Ville
for Her: Handmade earrings by Envet. Envet is loosely translated from an African language meaning "and bold". I personally love handmade jewellery, there is always a unique touch to every piece don't you think? Get them here.

Beverly Ville
for Him and Her: Travel size masks are definitely travel must haves, there's no reason why your skin should lack the TLC whilst abroad. Get them here.

I hoped this little guide is helpful to some of you! While there's still time, let's make sure everyone gets a little something for Christmas. In the mean time, I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

COZY IN CASHMERE

Beverly Ville
Don't you just love being in your coziest sweater to laze around in, on a December morning? Waking up, making tea, finishing up that chapter from the night before and wrapping presents for Christmas, all in the comfort of your favorite cashmere piece. I mean, I could stay in this all day if it was sweater weather. This may not be a Christmas sweater but it makes a great Christmas present to your loved ones, and yes they have men's sizes too. #cozycouple or #cashmereforchristmas maybe?

THE ROSE SILK SLIP

As you guys know, I've been on a blush pink streak recently and when you dress in blush pink from head to toe – you definitely have an obsession. Also, when you own a dress in 2 colors, it's without a doubt an essential (not even guilty). It's finally the best month of the year, the air is cooler which makes it the perfect time to layer up. You can choose to layer with a sweater like I did above, or just wear it as it is here. GRANA is one of the brands I truly love wearing. Their pieces are timeless yet classy, ideal for dressing both up and down. Not to mention that they're known for their quality fabrics, extra points for that! You've got to own your own piece to know what I'm talking about, I mean Christmas is around the corner and everyone deserves a little treat for themselves, yes?

Have a lovely sparkly December everyone!

STAR DUST AND BLUSH DREAMS

"Second star to the right, and straight on til morning – Peter Pan"

Still my favourite quote of all time from the Disney classic – Peter Pan. There is just something about stars that make you feel in love; make you dreamy; make you feel that touch of magic and that is exactly how I feel when I had this dress on. When Privacy Please released their star print dresses, I was over the moon. This is the dreamiest dress I've ever worn and I might just wear it again on my birthday. It is in the perfect silhouette, and the twinkle of gold and silver compliments the blush so well. December is just a few days away and it is my favorite month, there's my birthday and there's Christmas, I might just vlog during this time (more on that in another post)! Let's not forget that there are still sales from Cyber Monday, do make full use of it to shop for Christmas outfits! 💫

It has always been all things blush and silk, wearing this color palette all year round and I still can't get enough of it. One of my favourite casual combos yet, and what's better when the location matches your outfit. This is my first ever silk robe and L'Academie has definitely aced it with the perfect robe. Completely obsessed with everything about it. I love how it's the ideal travel piece, comfortable yet a statement. Funny how it also reminds me of lazy mornings in a loft, dancing and twirling away to La Vie En Rose on the vinyl player..

Today's the perfect day to get your dream robe or anything really – y e s it's Black Friday
(pssst, don't wait as there's up to 65% off + free express shipping!)
