I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.



Rose gold-tone headphones


Neutral Rose
A handbag staple, right next to the eyeliner. Doubles up as cheek-pinching equivalent of a blush colour – just apply with your fingers like war paint and pretend you totally had breakfast.
Three     Hits Wonder
The classic three that took me through Paris Fashion Week and any other high-intensity moments.
Stainless Steel watch
Platform pumps
Kurt Geiger


Parisian Red
The forever classic, this Red means business. I always like to add a flick of eyeliner, which adds a hint of flirtiness and confuses the husband greatly. Also known as lazy-day colour when you don’t feel like applying makeup on the rest of your face.
Polka-dot skirt
Saint Laurent
Hoop earrings
Dinny Hall


Atomic Orange
Proenza Schouler
Bucket bag
Shimmer brick-compact
Bobbi Brown
COS x Hay
Enamel Ring
Delfina Delettraz
Pop and pizazz in one bullet, for days when I long for human interaction – it sure is a conversation starter. Add softness to the strength by applying with a blended edge and wear against minimal makeup.

I feel like a big part of the process of becoming an adult, is the ability to brutally edit down some very broad choices in life to an easily digestible-yet-not-so-round number of three. How many little pigs? Three. Musketeers? Three (not sure if those particular ones are life choices…). How many people in a priest, a minister and a rabbi joke? My point is, three is a catchy number, and that’s the number of takeaways I can find in my past 7-days Deliveroo log, and number of words in one of my favourite phrases: Just get naked. (Or I’m lovin’ it)

I’ve spent most of my 20’s leasing space in the beauty pouch to what would now be collectively a sizeable lipstick assortment, which, if laid side-by-side and compared, would simply divide into three categories: the everyday, classic red, and the pizazz. As shown above. The dark purple gothy glittery number doesn’t even make it into the bag.

So this is a story we shot during PFW, celebrating Bobbi Brown’s new Luxe Lip collection as one of the digital ambassadors, and also an semi-official dubbing of the three colour categories that I’ve nailed down and can now move onto my next ‘three favourites’, in the grand path of becoming an adult.

In collaboration with Bobbi Brown & Shopstyle.

  14. Hey Shini,

    I love the way you layer your outfits. I’ve been thinking that for a while now whenever I see you posts on Instagram or Fashiolista. It could be said about almost any of your outfits, but these ones in particular work beautifully with the lipsticks. I personally prefer a nude look, like Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution in Birkin Brown, I’d totally recommend the range, but I’m glad I’ve discovered these Bobbi Brown ones here. I love her products so will probably try to get my hands on this soon. And you look gorgeous in these photos, as per.

  17. Three is the number of kisses we exchange when meeting friends here (being the Netherlands). Nirvana, The Police and the Beastie Boys were three-man bands, Muse still has three members. You’re right, Shini, the universe wants to tell us something!
    That said, I can’t make up my mind which lipstick color is my fave. Three is still too many options for my indecisiveness ;-)
    However, my favorite outfit in this post is the all-white look, without a doubt. Sooo sleek and fabulous, especially with those shoes!

  18. Hehe 3 is my favourite number as well and im super ocd about having things in 3s. For example i just bought 3 bars of chocolate. obviously you gotta eat all 3 at the same time too.

    all those 3 shades look so good on you, especially the atomic orange!

  19. Great editorial <3 Empowering women to put in effort and hardwork.

  20. Ah! I’m trying to bring everything down too… not because I’m getting older (though I am), but because I’m tired of hauling everything around. Might just need to get rid of the pungent pink color I have from college fraternity parties that doesn’t have a label on the tube itself. I really want to try the Bobbie Brown lipsticks-the red is gorgeous! x

  21. Hey Shini. beautiful post but a lot of the links on the second image go here: http://www.filippa-k.com/en/woman/trousers.

  22. This first look is very cute, all these colors match well together!

  23. Bobbi Brown is such a great brand!


  24. All these colors look amazing on you. I’ve found the perfect red but I really need a neutral rose color…I’ll look into trying that bobbi brown one!

    Red is my everyday! To the point when I don’t wear ir to work people ask me if something’s wrong ;)
    My pizazz is a darker, burgundy colour and for dating nights I use a nude so the bf doesn’t complain too much. My corals, oranges and pinks are kind of abandoned…

  26. Beautiful imagery (as always). And I think I need this orange in my life asap! :)
