Haul: Mango Online

1. Tropical top,
2. Loose-fit snake print shorts,
3. TOUCH Leather platform sandal,

I've seen the printed floral top too many times online and while passing by local MNG stores. I finally gave in and bought it online (at a nice discount!). Because the weather's been really hot, I got a pair of shorts in a snake skin print as well. I almost never wear any shorts so it's about time I added a few summer pieces to my wardrobe. Lastly, platform sandals- never wore them but am willing to give the style a try thanks to inspiration from fashion blogger, Rumi Neely and her Isabel Marant platforms.

Kimono Art: Mamechiyo x Shu Uemura

Mamechiyo, a modern Japanese kimono artist, collaborated with Shu Uemura early spring 2012 where  her kimono prints were featured on the Japanese cosmetic brand's best-selling products: cleansing oils; and some others. 

I've seen the Shu Uemura products in person and was very tempted to buy every bottle from the Mamechiyo collection but I refrained as I do not use Shu Uemura products. They were stunning though! 

I personally love kimono prints and have been a fan of Mamechiyo since I saw one of her kimono designed exclusively for Blythe dolls. Seeing such beauty come to life on a piece of clothing really is inspiring.

Arrived: ASOS package

I made a pretty large order on because I was lucky enough to receive a gift coupon worth £65 from someone special :) So I used it all up in one order spending it on some Asos Petite white T-shirts, a neon yellow clutch, Asos Petite jeggings and some toiletries that were on sale. 

Shipping was very fast, taking just 3 days from the UK to Malaysia. I did not pay more for express shipping and it was just the standard free shipping but with tracking. I am thinking that if an order is above a certain amount, tracking will be provided and it will be shipped faster. I am not entirely sure about this but am pretty certain that's the case because I have another package that's due and it is just a pair of shoes just under USD30. Ordered it a day before the larger haul and it still has yet to arrive + no tracking number. 

Either way I am very happy with the items and fast shipping. Will post a more detailed review on the items soon.
