    is a virtual space where Liyana Aris documents her evolving modest personal style, which is based on the art of looking casually stylish while still remaining modest and doing it all on a budget; about 93% of her closet are filled with affordable things. (PS: The remaining 7% has a lot to do with her secret addiction to Adidas shoes and her occasional splurges on discounted high-end bags and clutches, shhh.) [+]

    Beauty & Style Extra Readings (plus a food and a travel one)


    The two-ingredient banana pancakes resemble Asia's "lempeng pisang" more than anything (we have more than two ingredients though) but hey it's a recipe worth giving a go if someone says it's good enough for dinner! And the three-ingredient Japanese Cheesecake? I mean, dayummm.

    Totally not saying I'm the most perfect traveller ever but I usually try my best to hold on to this mantra: don't do to other people what you don't want them to do to you.
    Also, if you're obviously not Italian and have a distinctive accent from a certain country, hence clearly a tourist yourself, don't stand outside a restaurant in Venice, Italy that's filled with people and claim loudly, "This looks like a tourist place. Come on, let's go." Nu-uh, gurlll. (True story; not sure if I'll ever get over this girl)

    Pin away, peeps.

    I genuinely like Rachel Zoe's style AND I legit use Downy in every laundry I do (their fabric softener in the light blue bottle and pink cap has the BEST smell) so I think a Rachel Zoe-Downy collab is top notch!

    I learned an amazing trick from this article, which you can see in my recent post here.

    Dreaming of the day when I have every single one of these lining up in my makeup bag, just waiting for me...

    I personally love looking at swatches and oohing and aahing over them so this post is right up my alley.
