Tools on Tour by Lottie London is the perfect travel companion for the woman who needs to look put together at all times: the compact brush set contains a mini brow brush, smudger brush, eyeshadow brush and powder brush. This and a bunch of makeup is all one needs to look like a million bucks - even while fighting jet lag. Best part? This is a truly affordable chic set!

Where's the genie in this bottle?
They say a Bkr bottle changes the way you hydrate yourself - forever! That's quite a power punch in a bottle. It looks so hopelessly lovable that, for once, you never have to be reminded to tank up. Practical tip: this has a firm handle you will never have trouble keeping in place. Comes in a bunch of cute colours and designs.

Chest of drawers that's a treasure!
I love furniture that looks this artistic - comes with its own pops of colours and patterns (Arabic-styled). And the woody hold-together gives it such a classy feel! I'm wondering what all can be crammed into the drawers and the answers are easy enough: 'secret' notebooks and all those knick-knacks that I don't seem to find a resting place for. The chest top can have a flower vase (fresh florals please!) but otherwise be left minimalist.... who needs more flourishes?

A shoe story to slip your feet into
Sandals, laces and an earthy tone. Enough to make me sit up and take note. These sandals, that promise to make your feet breathe easy, are perfect for summers, and the elongated laces look stunning (but watch out, don't walk around ineptly in them - you may just trip inelegantly!). The no-heel pact means walking will be a breeze. My next pair of mall crunchers and brunching buddies.

Charmed by the charms
Pandora is one of my all-time fave brands. I have so many of their charms - my existing silver bracelet (and, by extension, my wrist) cannot get enough of them. The new collection has some winners - also loving the double-layered leather bracelets in pink and blue - and I need to get at least a couple to keep my collection updated.
