Let’s take a few minutes to frolic with her through Versailles in head-to-toe Dior. Consider this your daily dose of glamour: “Secret Garden – Versailles,” Dior’s new film directed by Inez & Vinoodh.

My Weekend

I ordered the Chicken Katsu Set again (120g P325 -if I’m not mistaken) . Each set meal comes with Miso Soup, Steamed Rice, Unlimited Cabbage (which you can mix with Yabu’s Sesame dressing, which Stan and I truly enjoyed), Japanese Pickles and some sliced pineapples and watermelon. The best Chicken Katsu I’ve ever had. Have to go back for the Jumbo Prawn Set.

Here’s the link to my previous Yabu post:

Finally! Will do a separate post on this AMAZING product.

Saw this gorgeous skirt from Mango. How lovely.

Last but not the least. LOVE.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

The Saffiano Lux Tote from Prada (which I’m dying to have!)

The design and classic colors of the Prada’s Saffiano Lux Tote offers a lifetime of luxury and will never retire in style.

What better weekend accessory than an oversized tote bag.
