The Green Raybans

dress, raybans, fashion blog, interview, blog

snow, sweater, fur, coat, winter, fashion blog, blog

Two best friends Eli & Nicole,  also known as 'The green raybans' started their blog in 2011. Just wanting to express their opinions about the fashion industry. Now their blog has grown through out the years, with readers all over. Just knowing that they living from across the world from each other, and still maintain a blog together is amazing. This is basically my first interview,  so I hope you all like it, enjoy!

What made you two have the idea of starting a blog together? 
We have been good friends since we met and it seemed like such a great idea to start a fashion blog! At the time of starting our blog, we both had developed a keen interest for writing and fashion so this blog seemed like a good platform where we could share our common interest for the industry and do what we love.

Fashion icon?
Nicole: Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington, Miranda Kerr and Rumi Neeley.

Eli: I would say that Audrey Hepburn is definitely my fashion icon, but I do adore plenty of other peoples fashion!

Favorite blog? 
There are heaps of blogs that I love reading, but our favourites would probably be FashionToast, HowTwoLive, and The Blonde Salad, BryanBoy, and Aurora Mohn.

What do you love about blogging? 
Nicole: There are so many things that I love about blogging, yet so many things I dislike about the industry as well. My favourite thing about blogging is being able to write about something I genuinely love and its so great to be able to share it and read all the different opinions from fellow bloggers as well. It's also great making friends with bloggers in the blogging community.

Eli: I love getting all the lovely comments, the fact someone actually notices really makes my day. 

Whats your opinion of your own sense of style?
Nicole: My style constantly changes but it has always remained very colourful, and full of prints.

Eli: In my opinion I have quite a simple, preppy and very girly sense of style. 

What is the typical blog post on your blog? 
Nicole: I love using polyvore as a medium for my posts so many of my posts usually include a polyvore set. But usually just runway and lifestyle coverage and things that inspire me.

Eli: I often blog about lifestyle and do outfit posts. 

Favorite designer brand? 
Nicole: I currently have a major love for Alexander Wang and Kenzo. 

Eli: I don't really have one particular favourite but some are Ralph Lauren, Elie Saab, Chanel and Louis Vuitton. 

What is your dream job?
Nicole: As cliched as this sounds for any fashion blogger, my dream job would definitely to be a fashion journalist working in New York City! But that's definitely a dream job since it's a very tough industry to get yourself into.

Eli: My dream job would be to work in either the fashion industry or finance.

Some of the things I got for christmas 

  1. Long champ Handbag: Le pliage in Navy blue
    I was ecstatic when I saw that I got it, I have been asking it for so long and I finally got it! 
  2. Viva La Juicy Nior
    This perfume smells AMAZING, well all of the viva la juciy perfumes smell amazing, well done juicy.
  3. Ciate Advent calendar 
    I know that you're supposed to get it before christmas, but I didn't mind. All the mini nail polishes in there were gorgeous!
  4. The five people you meet in heaven by Mitch Albom
    Mitch Albom is one of my favourite authors, his books arent just stories they make you really think about it, which I why I love his books so much, my favourite book from him  is The time keeper I definitely recommend it to everyone.
  5. Yankee Candle: Merry Marshmallow 
    If you all didn't know I have an obsession with candles, I love burning them in my room because it makes my room smells so nice. I tried burning the Merry Marshmallow and it my room literally smells like marsh mallows.
  6. Revlon Lipstick (830 Rich girl red) 
    I got this from my friend and other beauty products, I absolutely love this shade! wore this for the christmas dinner.

Well recently I have been filming a lot of videos of different events and my everyday life and editing it, and it's just a hobby and something I enjoy doing. I also ski every year,  and my family does so I would use this when I go skiing. I will probably post one of my videos once on here maybe. This was one of the biggest gift I got for christmas this year, so I was over the moon when I saw it. 
  10. Watercolour + paintbrush set 
    I got this lovely watercolour set from my cousins, I was so happy because sometimes in my free time I try to draw or paint, and I didn't have any water colour so the addition to the art collection is great!
  11. H&M bracelets 
    This was part of the stocking, It was a few bracelets that my mum bought me, all of it was so pretty.
  12. Starbucks Christmas mug
    This was actually one of my favourite present, the mug is so cute! it's not too much but the simpler the better, the handle is a pattern of a candy cane, how cute is that! 

I am so grateful for everything I got, and I hope all of you had a great christmas with your family, Merry Late christmas everyone!

How to make Nutella hot chocolate

Since it's winter season for rest of the world except for south east asia. who doesn't love a perfect cup of hot chocolate or any hot drink. however, why not twist it around and try something new, if you like Nutella you would love this Nutella hot chocolate. I know this isn't a fashion post, but it's the christmas season so why not, and yes I have a mug about calorie, no shame :3

  • Nutella 1 tbsp or 2 tbsp
  • Cinnamon 
  • 1 cup of milk
  • whip cream 
  • Saucepan
  • whisk
  1. First of all heat up your stove, and wait for about 5 minutes for it to heat up. Then put the Saucepan on top.
  2. Pour the 1 cup of milk into the Saucepan (if you're making this for more than 1 person add 1 or 2 more cups of milk). 
  3. While waiting for the milk to heat up, add 1 tbsp of Nutella into the saucepan (If you want a stronger taste add another tbsp) 
  4. Whisk the milk and the Nutella together until it blends and makes a brown colour just like hot chocolate. 
  5. Add a pinch of Cinnamon into the Nutella hot chocolate, and blend it together.
  6. Turn of your stove, and pour the Nutella hot chocolate into your mug. 
  7. To finish it off put whip-cream on the top of the Nutella hot chocolate and sprinkle the Cinnamon right on the top.

Tell me if you try it out! What do you think? should I do more posts like this?

BKK Round 1

So as you can all see the title of the post is 'BKK' yes I am in BKK right now but by the time you're all reading this I'll be back in Singapore. I have been incredibly busy seeing friends and family, so I didn't have time to blog at all. However, now I have some free time before I go to bed. If you didn't know I am thai and I recently moved from Bangkok to Singapore, some of you might think that it's not a big deal, but it was a HUGE deal to me, probably the worst news of 2013 at the time, but now I've changed and its different. I am starting to like singapore, with all the new friends I've made, and how easy it is to get around (It's impossible to get anywhere in Bangkok because the traffic is the worse and it's not as safe as Singapore ).  I will be in Bangkok again this month, because I am coming back again for new year yay. 
Dinner at Greyhound (if you look closely, half of my face is on the left side) 

I have had such a great time here in Bangkok, I have always loved this city, and it's character. Also, on how it is so loud and busy all the time, I've learned to love it. I got the chance to visit my old school, friends and family. 

Camwhoring sesh (me in the middle)
Seeing my family was so nice, the last time I saw them was probably since the summer which was quite a while away. It was a great day overall catching up with everyone, and especially seeing my grandparents. So before I went to see them I was preparing for all the questions on how singapore is or if I like singapore better than Bangkok. Well obviously both cities are different in their own ways. A long day of eating and talking. It was the most chillest (is that a word?.. I don't know :3) day ever. However I was extremely excited to see all my friends, some of them I haven't seen since the summer, like one of my best friends who went to boarding school, so it was so nice to catch up with everyone. I also got to give the christmas presents to all my friends in Bangkok, after three days of intense christmas shopping. That day was also such a fun day, got to see all my friends, had delicious dinner, and had a sleepover with one of my best friends who I haven't seen in 5 months, and of course whats a sleepover without watching a chick flick. However, since my friend just came back she was extremely tired and fell asleep at 8... but then I fell asleep too. Now for my last full day in Bangkok, it was also the chillest (sorry I had to) day. Had Japanese food (favourite food of all time) and watched frozen, which was the cutest movie ever, the songs were such happy songs, the movie was just uplifting, and just made you feel happy (Well done disney). 

Just to remind all of you it's christmas soon!!! I am so excited literally my favourite time of the year. So I now have an excuse to have my Nutella hot chocolate (best thing ever), If you all of you want to see the recipe on how to make it tell me, and I'll be sure to write a post about it. Well, thats all for now, Thank you for reading!

How are your winter holidays?

Tory Burch Spring 2014 Ready-to-Wear Collection

Tory burch's Spring 2014 Ready-to-Wear Collection really caught my eye, the hint of green, and light coloured outfits through out the runway. It is classic and simple, which makes more people want to buy the clothing. My favourite outfit is the middle outfit. I adore the trousers, the green checkered pattern with and white lining on the side. The best part of the outfit is the purse, the flower pattern really emphasises the "nature" point of the outfit. On the other hand, the outfit on the right, has a hint of contrast to the middle outfit, the middle outift has a hint of white and different colours that probably represents 'nature', but the right outfit, has only one colour and one colour only, white. In my opinion, white is a very elegant colour, it gives the feeling softness and quiteness. Which is basically the definition of elegance (I think).  

I remember when I was 13 and my mum started to buy from tory burch and I always ask her if I can have it but she would always say no, which is what you're supposed to say when your 13 year old daughter asks you if she can have a designer hand bag. Now back to the topic of the runway. I would definitely wear all of the outfits from tory burch, it is one of my favourite designer brands, maybe because it's not the most expensive and that I'm only a teenager. 

I absolutely love every single outfit in this photo, the outfits all can fit a different category. The left outfit can be worn to a gala, or a day time event, or even shopping, however it is more on the posh side than casual. Also my favourite dress out of the whole collection. The outfit in the middle is more on the casual side in my opinion, it can be worn any day. The outfit on the right seems to be very formal, can be worn to meetings, work, or even a formal dinner, definitely another favourite outfit in the collection. Also, of course I'm not going to miss out on the shoes, I have seen a pattern that most of the shoes are either white or a bronze colour, which is a great pair to match the outfit. e.g. the middle outfit is all white and is not the brightest outfit, so a pop of silver shoes to match with really makes a statement. 

So I did say that I was going to try to post a blog post everyday, but I am so busy christmas shopping, that by the time I come home I am extremely tired, I will try to post as often each week. however, by the time all of you are reading this I will probably be in Bangkok, visiting family and friends (I'm thai if you didn't know that) so keep visiting my blog for a travelogues, and ootd's with my friends in Bangkok. 

What is your favourite outfit of the collection?

    This is my absolutely favourite christmas movie of all time. It's funny, adorable and a great movie! Also Will Ferrell is amazing at acting, and he is always so funny

    I also love this movie so much! it's such an entertaining movie. It is a classic christmas movie!
  3. The Polar Express (2004)

    I remember when I was younger, I would watch this all the time during christmas season, it has always been a favourite.
  4. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
    I am not going to lie I was a little scared of this movie when I first watched, it's cause I was so young, but now I love it! it's a great story and gives you the christmasy feel in a different way.
  5. The Santa Clause (1994)

    This is such an adorable film, I recently watched this and now its on one of my favourite christmas movies!
  6.  Love actually (2003)

    This film has comedy, romance and the christmasy feel all in one movie, and I love all the actors in it! such a great romantic - comedy film. The best part is that the story revolves around christmas

    I remember watching this last year and got so hooked to the story, everyone should watch this!

    I remember watching this movie ages ago, I don't remember much but I remember loving it so much! I think I'm gonna watch it again this christmas season :3
  10. Four Christmases (2008)

    This movie is such a funny movie! it's all about this couple missing their flight before christmas so they would have to spend time with their families, but have difficulty with both sides of the family, I definitely recommend!

The "LA look" via instagram & youtube

I know right now its december and its the winter season, but it's summer weather all year here, so read this post as if it's summer soon for all of you and you could take ideas off this, but if it's summer all year for you too then great!

I have been noticing a lot lately about the "LA look" the skater skirts, with doc martens and muscle tanks. I honestly love the look. It can be casual, formal and especially made for a more hotter climate. Which is good for me cause I live in a country thats 40 degrees Celsius everyday. However, Most of the looks I've seen is from Instagram and youtube. I am obsessed with youtube I probably subscribe to over 200 people. My favourites are the beauty guru's like Macbarbie07(Bethany Mota) (I met her :3) or stilababe09 (Meredith Foster). They give me lots of ideas for makeup, fashion and products that I might essentially like, and of course they live in California. The youtuber that has a strong "LA look" is Alexa Losey (smokeypinkleopard). She probably lives in boots, because all of her lookbook videos are basically her in boots all the time, I love it! heres examples of her videos.

Now on to Instgram. You all probably know this person, Kylie Jenner. She is the ultimate LA girl her style is spot on, on what I think the "LA look". Also, it could be because she was brought up in LA her whole life and as we all know she caught up to the style. Her Instagram photos are so nice, some of them don't even look like she took it from her iphone because the photos are so clear and HD. I have been noticing that she uses Flannel shirts as an accessory, that she ties around her waist, which I think is a great idea and also what every other LA girl wears :3 Here are some photos from her Instagram that shows her 'style'

kylie jenner, LA style, indie, hipster, high end, friend, jenner, kardasian
As you can see with these pictures her style is absolutely gorgeous! elegant in some photos and casual in the others. Well those are the perks of being a Kardasian (well jenner but you know same thing)  and having Kim, Kourtney and Khloe as your sisters. Also, shorts are essential where I live, wearing long trousers in singapore will probably make you melt because its so terribly hot.

To end on a light note, have a nice holiday everyone!

What do you think about the "LA style"?

  2. The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On an Open Fire) - Pentatonix
  3. Snow in California - Ariana grande
  4. Shake up Christmas - Train #throwback to 2010

December Wish list

December Wish list aka Christmas wish list

  • Dresses - I am someone who wouldn't really buy dresses while I'm shopping, because I always think "when am I ever going to wear this" even though they dress looks so nice. So now I decided that I should start buying dresses, because why not you never know when theres gonna be a time when you have nothing to wear to a fancy dinner. Also, whats not to like about dresses.  
  • Phone case - Not any phone case, I've really been wanting the leopard print Kate spade silicon phone case (sorry for the obsession over Kate spade).  
  • hand bags - I've been really wanting a new hand bag, because I tend to have smaller hand bags, so a bigger one would be a nice change, and of course a Kate spade bag would be quite nice :3 
  • Beanies - Even though I live in a country where it's summer everyday, I do tend to visit countries that have a colder climate. I probably only have one or two beanies because I never use them here #problemswithlivinginahotcountry, but they are so nice I can't resist!  
  • A watch - People these days tend to look at their phones to check the time (I do this too). but I still love watches, I was never really a big fan of watches but some of them look so nice, and basically its an overly priced accessory that you can tell the time with. I have been loving Michael kors watches they are absolutely beautiful. 
  • Beauty related products - It would be nice to have a few new make up products added to my collection, e.g. the naked 3 palette I am dying to get, but I don't think it will be out in singapore yet, but I hope it will soon.   
  • Shoes - I used to hate shoe shopping, I don't know why I think its just that I was too caught up on buying just clothes. However, I am slowly transitioning into a shoe shopper, as you can see on my wish list just a few pairs of shoes I've been wanting.
  • Candles - I have been obsessed with candles lately, I always have a candle burning in my room everyday, especially during this time of the year where I burn my candles a lot more to create the 'christmas smell'. Since theres no bath and body works here in singapore, I have been loving yankee candle. Their 'christmas eve' scent smells just like christmas, it smells amazing! So it would be nice to get a few extra candles so when I run out I'll have more candles to burn! :D
What is on your wish list? and what do you all want me to write next?

Kate Spade Spring 2014 collection

ImageI absolutely love Kate spade's Spring 2014 Ready-to-wear collection, its elegant but fun at the same time. The thing about Kate spade's designs is that they are always so colourful and who doesn't like clothes that are colourful. As a teenage girl, looking at Christian Dior or Alexander Wang doesn't really make me go WOW I want all of that. Kate spade's collection makes me go WOW I want those clothes. In my opinion, They remind me of dresses from the 60's, the big glasses and colourful dresses. The dresses are definitely in my wish list (dream on emma).

I feel like these outfits are the more sophisticated looks of Kate Spade's Spring 2014 collection. My favourite is the first look and the third look, those outfits are to die for. However, I live in a tropical country which means that its about 40 degrees Celsius all year round, which makes life harder every girl/women who want to dress up including me. If I did live in a country that had four seasons I would love to wear these outfits. I really like how the third outfit has a pop of pink, because the rest of the outfit is just black and white. Well done to Kate spade to note out that it is spring the collection can't be black and white. Other than that, I recently started using my Kate spade wallet I got in New york during the summer, and I am in love with it! Image

Thank you for reading!


#ootd What I wore for christmas 2012

#ootd What I wore for christmas 2012

So basically, this is what I wore for christmas 2012, I'll be sure to post what I wear for christmas 2013. This whole outfit is from top shop, it wasn't even on purpose. Red Leigh jeans, blue peplum top and a red hand bag from top shop too (which is not in the picture).

4 outfit ideas for christmas day/eve/morning + extra items related to christmas

  1. Image
    This first outfit is for someone who wants to feel cozy and warm at home, with a christmas sweater, hot chocolate, a candle (that smells like christmas of course), beanie, UGG boots and comfortable leggings.
    ☃ Ted Baker Maysi fairisle jumper
    ☃ Designers Remix sage stretchy suede leggings
    ☃ Ugg classic Bailey Brushed Suede Boots
    ☃ Passigatti BOMMEL hat
    ☃ Yankee candle christmas ever jar candle
    ☃ Snowflake glove
    ☃ Snowman Mug

  2. Image
    This outfit is perfect if you're going to a fancy christmas party. A dress with some glitter is never bad (even better because it's christmas). I love the butter London nail polish, it would really make red pop in the outfit, and of course black wedges.

  3. Image
    This outfit is if you're going to a non-fancy party, but you could still dress up a little. With the red skater skirt, is perfect for the christmas season, but wear tights underneath if it's really cold where you live. A white blouse with leather collars and the Jeffrey campbell platform boots will add edginess to the outfit. To add the "high end" into the outfit, pair it up with a Vintage Chanel Classic quilted Bag, and of course Perfume by Daisy by Marc jacobs is a must.

  4. Image
    This outfit is if you're out and about, The jacket is perfect for this occasion, so match it up with a nice blouse or shirt. Since you'll be walking around comfortable but stylish boots are a must. Coco Chanel Perfume. To add colour to your outfit pair it up with a Balenciaga bag preferably red (cause it's christmas).Thank you for reading, hope you got a few ideas from my outfit ideas :)

"first post"

The typical tourist photo
The typical tourist photo

"The first post"

Introducing myself

Never have I ever thought I would start a blog. I tend to try new things most of them time, or try new hobbies. Once I started to get into art I painted everyday when I got back home from school, and I thought my paintings were good....I guess I was wrong, but I don't think it was that bad.

I am that asian girl, who tends to act like a white girl. I love Starbucks, but I love rice and everything asian related (especially noodles). I currently live in the small country so called as singapore. Some people I've met around the world don't even know where singapore is. It's tiny. By tiny I mean really tiny. You can't spot it on a map unless you zoom in. Singapore is a country (island) below Malaysia. Also, I've heard that singapore is the richest country in south east asia, I'm not sure if that is true but I have been seeing a lot of ferari's around singapore lately. However, I've only been in singapore for 3 months. My real home is Bangkok.

Bangkok, a bustling capital in beautiful Thailand (sorry for bragging I love my country). Its a lot like singapore, but not as "green" as singapore. before singapore I've always lived in bangkok. If you ask anyone in thailand if they think of moving to another country most of the answers will be no. I was shocked when I heard I was moving to singapore, I thought I would be living in Thailand until I graduate and hopefully to go to university in america. I'm not very good at "change" I get too used to something and want it to be the same forever, but moving to singapore gave me a reality check that change can be a good thing and judging from it now it is a good thing. I have met such amazing friends in singapore, and I have so many more opportunities here. Overall, I'm really starting to like this place.
