Style Essentials

All the fashion gurus were correct when they said that one needs to invest on basic pieces like a plain white top or well-fitting pants.

So yeah, a roomy black bag that can be used along with almost any outfit, and a silver, “grown up” watch that exudes srs bznz haha.

I’m unsure though whether a curling iron can be used to straighten hair, especially those with big barrels. #BeautyNewbAlert! Not that it would make so much of a difference considering I am very clueless when it comes to hairstyling.
