5 classic types of bags for women

The bag you carry is both a fashion statement and a practical accessory. So wouldn't you want to invest in a few classic pieces that take you through the ups and downs in trends over the years? New bag styles are ever evolving, but there are some that brave the test of time to emerge crowd favourites because of their versatility, timeless aesthetics, and functionality that cater to many women.

Here, we round up the 5 classic types of bags for women that you can always count on for every occasion. And because we are in love with Victoria's Secret supermodel Miranda Kerr's personal style, this post is dedicated to all the bags she carried. Ladies, take notes:


1. Handbag

A handbag, particularly a structured one, adds instant polish to an outfit, so you look well put together even in loose cuts and casual fabrics. 



Miranda always looks impeccably stylish. Her personal style veers towards ladylike or girly, with the occasional edgy piece. Here, she turns to her regular feminine look, teaming a burgundy Louis Vuitton handbag with a loose grey long-sleeved top, floral pants, and nude pointed pumps. Who says fall is the season for dull colours?


2. Tote Bag

The store-everything tote serves as a gym bag, outing bag, shopping bag, and even as a work bag. Go for lusher materials such as leather or suede for formal occasions, and hardy materials like canvas or nylon when heading to the gym.



How NYC does Miranda look here! Her sleek, urban-chic outfit is minimalist and practical, striking a perfect balance between classy and casual in a breezy white sleeveless Equipment button-up and cropped A.LC. tuxedo-striped pants. She played up the polish with a pair of black patent pumps, Stella McCartney sunglasses and a glossy black leather tote bag from Celine. This outfit comes to you office-ready.


3. Shoulder Bag

Mention shoulder bags, and Chanel's quilted shoulder bag easily comes to mind. The shoulder bag is a breezy, chic companion to pretty much any outfit, and it's no wonder that this bag has lasted through the decades.



Got a hot date or hitting town tonight with the girls? Steal Miranda Kerr's style here! Her outfit for a night out involves a teal chain strap purse that punches up her sweet girly ensemble of pink pants and plain white t-shirt. Keep things simple and classy with minimal makeup and a sleek up-do.


4. Clutch



One of the things I like about Miranda is that she can be sexy without revealing too much skin. Here, she flaunts her curves in a gorgeous pastel blue and white crop top and skirt, showing just a slice of her narrow waist.

Also, I love how she made her white Smythson envelope clutch fit into the geometric theme of her outfit, and completed the look with matching white pointed pumps. It's hard to pick a favourite Miranda outfit, but this one is definitely one of the top, in my book.


5. Hand luggage



Miranda does Parisian chic here in a classic combination of a striped t-shirt, dark wash denim jeans, and a Louis Vuitton hand-carry bag. She gives the outfit extra oomph with bright red pumps. This is one celebrity airport style that can be easily recreated even on a budget. Just replace the designer bag with another structured hand luggage for a polished look.

Welcoming MR HIRO JUNIOR our new Golden Retriever

Kitkat, Brownie, Bold, Jolt and etc were the names we considered.
We decided to named him HIRO (my idea #proud) - Complete name is HIRO JUNIOR.
Because, Neymar Jr mah! Hahaha! #NeymarIsHandsome
Hiro is a masculine Japanese given name with multiple meanings, dependent on the characters used.
 裕 means "abundant". 寛 means "generous, tolerant" and 浩 means "prosperous."

Hiro is only 3mths old and he is this huge. �� #goldenretriever


What a handsome name right!!! Decided to give him a Japanese- name as, Mayo also sounds Japanese LOL!

Now we have Gucci Bieber, Mayo Cyrus and Hiro Junior. Follow the boss @MonsterGucci on instagram.

Honestly, I was kind of scared of him when I first met him. He was so huge!!!
I afraid he'll attack me. Anyway, yes, this is an insane idea, Obviously not my idea.
Bf has been thinking about having a large-sized dog since few years ago. The reason why he haven't really got one was because,
we we expecting Mayo to get pregnant !! However, unfortunately, after two heat period, Mayo is still not pregnant.
Then, one day coincidentally the pet shop called bf and said
"There's a really nice Golden Retriever in my shop. You have to come and see"
"The Best Golden Retriever I have ever seen in Batam", "Very healthy and really cute"
"If you decided to buy, if there's any dog show event coming up, please allow us take him to the show for you"
Nah! Bf was totally sold. LOL! He decided to go down and see. He dragged me along too.
Mannnnn he was really cute! His paws were huge! I was surprised that he was only 3 months old.
Well, without hesitate, bf start to talk about when to pick him up and etc, I was like ---> "Man! Are you SERIOUS?"
He decided Friday! He said, he will come and pick him up, this Friday.  =O I didn't talk too much.
I was totally blank.



He transferred the money,very excited and have been looking forward to pick Hiros up since then.
I am happy when bf is happy. But, something is wrong lah! Muahaha a part of me is feeling guilty.
We're very busy with our career and when we're not so busy we'll be still busy, travelling. =P
We won't have so much time to play with them. Luckily they have each other !! feeling less guilty now.
We already have Gucci and Mayo and now, we have to love Hiro too!
Man !! We weren't ready. Well, I AM NOT READY.
I told him, if you really want to raise him up, you have to give him the best. I wonder if it is me or Libra.
It is either don't buy or buy and give him the best. No, nothing in between.
I always told him, jadi orang jangan tanggung tanggung. Kalau mau naik business class, tanggung, beli pesawat aja satu. Muahaha!
Don't be half-hearted. Either sit in economy class (cheapest) or get a plane. LOL, I see no point in sitting in Business class.

He always reply me "Stupid mind". Hahaha! I don't like to be half-hearted.
That quote reflects very often in my daily life man!
Like either wear very simple shirt looking like I am a drug addict or dress like I am going for a red carpet event.
Casual outfit is not in my dictionary LOL!

Back to main topic, yah! He still decided to bring him back.
We were very curious and wonder how Gucci and Mayo will react when they see their new friend, Hiro.
Gucci is a fierce dog, he bites.
Mayo is the bitchy and noisy want.  She barks at strangers oh! She love attention!
I blame everything to BF! He wanted to have pet but never really sit down and train them properly duh!
Surprisingly all of them get along pretty well. At first they will disagree when Hiro put his paws on bfs bed.
But now, they play together, they sleep together, everything is fine.
Guess what? The brave and naughty Gucci is afraid of Hiro! or maybe not afraid, he always compromise.
On the other side, Mayo, who always get her food/toys that she want without fail from Gucci, become very angry!
You know, Hiro is just a puppy! He knows nothing and he love toys! Mayo will snatch the toy from Hiro
and if Hiro refuses to give up the toys, Mayo will bark at him like she was scolding him.
Hahaha she's soooooo cute! For the first time she shows her teeth to other dog. Grrrr! We find her very cute OMG!


Their life have been so far so good. Bf is building a house for Hiro in his garden.
He's not toilet-trained yet and haih! The busy bf is always not at home to train him.
So he planned to put Hiro outside during the day and bring him up to his room at night.

Honestly, I do not wish to have any dog. They are cute. I am super happy and love to play with them.
But it is sooooooo saddddddd to know that, one day, they will leave us.
Gucci is the oldest and whenever I think about him leaving, I will cry like hell. T-T
I HATE THIS FEELING. I love them so much! I don't want them to leave!!! #tearyeyes

Now, my second theory, I told bf "Why you want to raise them when you know one day, they will die?"
He asked me back "You will die too, why your mum give birth and raise you up?"
Then I stunned. Hahaha!

Well, what's done is done. I will cherish them, try to spend more time with them and give the a happy life.
I know right, I said I don't want to have any more dogs but somehow I wish Mayo will give us some puppies.
Haha This Libra is xiao! Want don't want want don't want! #BadDecisionMaker

Singapore Deal/ Voucher/ Coupon Website Honest Review

Hey Hey! I am finally back, blogging !!
Well, where should I start? So, you know! My bf is a very spontaneous person.
He always plan everything last minute! He suddenly ask if I want to go to Japan?
I didn't take him seriously since the price you pay for being last min is really high!
#SuperDislike Anyway, to my surprise, his dream comes true. He booked the flights =D
Well, since I am not paying, of course I don't mind. LOL! Then we booked the hotels ourselves.
 Initially it was just bf and I. Then, his two friends cum business partner decided to join us!
The more the merrier and yes WE WENT TO JAPAN yay! #achievementunlock

Will blog about Japan on a seperate blog post. -Haha totally not related with today's topic.

A few days before we depart, I went to buy some vouchers from deal.com.sg as I have some credits.
Ended up only paid SGD 5 (deal voucher initial price SGD 45) for facial, hair wash and
back treatment at Skinologies located at Rendezvous Hotel Singapore.
I just want to go for a pampering session before my holiday.
Btw, I am so used-to hard selling. Others may complaint, I will too.
But in this case, I didn't expect too much.



Everything was so-so. Will I return? definitely NO. The service was too simple.

The deal that they offered was only SGD 15. Dirty Cheap!
You Save $465.00 Normal Price $480.00
Tempting isn't? another factor that made me decided to get the deal is that,
they are located in a 4-star hotel, it won't be that bad.

However, unfortunately, the service was way below my expectation. I told you,
I didn't expect much and, this is even below my "expect not much" kind of expectation.
The lady who served me was actually kind and of course did a lot of hard selling. Almost fork up another 80 dllr to upgrade.
The reason why I didn't was because, it was too easy to negotiate. Hahaha! I am really good at negotiating.
Initially she said, I will need this treatment this this this and I need to pay SGD 200+ to upgrade my package.
Then I insisted my budget is below SGD 100. Then she give me the shock expression and said my idea is impossible.
Then I said, fine, just go with what I have paid, SGD 15 for SGD 480 worth of treatment.
Then suddenly she said, can wor. Even lower the package to only SGD 80.
Man. I should have said my budget is below SGD 50 loh! Haha I super dislike this kind of pricing.
Usually they don't have a price list/guide. They will just anyhow give you one price.
If you agree, they will earn a lot, if you negotiate, they give discount, will still earn but lesser.
So, I decided to think twice and say no, no, no to upgrade.

So, the facial was super simple, no significant changes after the treatment. Definitely not worth SGD 480.
The scalp treatment was MESSY. Super messy. the hair treatment was done on a bed and it was uncomfortable.
The wash and blow was seriously bad. Even HDB salon could do better job. I have a long and thick hair and it will take forever to dry.
So guess what? the person ask me to blow dry my hair myself. HAHAHA yes, 400+ worth of treatment.
The back treatment steps was only apply mask, roll crystal ball on my back and that's it. I don't remember much.

Yeap. That sums up to my what? SGD 1300 worth of treatment. Definitely not worth it.
Haha imagine, only paid SGD 5 and still, it is not worth it. LOL! Luckily I didn't upgrade.

Here's the thing, I love TRYING. I am a very curious person.
Unless it is something very good, I may revisit or I will simply stop going and try other place.

The good thing about deal website is, they have tons of good deal and mostly they offer really low price.
Some are even free. Well, not EVERYTHING is worth it though. Do your research.

Before you buy, please please please
consider the VENUE, TIME and read the T and C very clearly.
I bought a buffet voucher that worth SGD 32 and wasted it
as the timing is not suitable, venue is relatively far. #regret.

There are several good deals though. I always look for wax or IPL deal on deal website.
I tried Brazilian waxing at Plush! Located at the newly opened Orchard Gateway.
They stated that their usual price was SGD 80 and I only need to pay SGD 25.


1. Price is acceptable.
2. Accessible location
3. Award winning wax parlour
4. Why not!

So I went and tried, Oh! I was pleased with the result. #happy
Anyway, it was really a good deal. I have never try the 1 year unlimited IPL kind of deal though.
Heard that the "UNLIMITED" stated is actually limited to 1 session per month.
12 session ya say 12 session lah. what 1 year unlimited. #marketing #okay #understand

Well, if you haven't or have already tried getting vouchers from deal website here's my suggestion:

1. Love the deal website. Be polite, they are just middle person. Instead, thank them for bringing in so many deals!!
Want to complaint? Go directly to the merchant.

2. Be smart, read the T&C carefully. Some give you very nice price but is
EXCLUDE of tax & other charges, you might end up paying a little bit more on spot.
Some requires you to show your ID, some deals are valid only if you are Singaporean / PR.

3. Location, they are having promotion, why? because they are new, because they are far, because no nobody knows them.
That's why business not so good or there's many other reason, Just look for merchant that's near to you.
I personally only look for deals around Harbour Front, Vivo City, Orchard, Somerset, Plaza Singapura,
ION (very rarely), Ngee Ann City, Bugis, Liang Seah Street and etc. These are the places that I often go.

4. Be prepared. Almost all spa parlor or places that offer "service" will do hard selling. If it is good, reasonable go ahead.
If not comfortable with upgrade, package or etc. Just tell them no money. Haha.

5. Invite and earn credits!! Whenever there's good deal, I will share it on facebook, if people buy deals,
I earn some credits that can be offset on my next purchase. #workinginstyle hehe.

The deal website that I frequent a lot is
AllDealAsia.com - very easy to find deals.
Deal.com.sg - they have tons of deal.
Groupon.sg - they works with mostly premium merchant.

HAPPY DEAL-ING!
