Sneaking into my grandmother’s bedroom at the age of 4, I’d hurl myself onto her dresser, slop on some make up, try on the pair of Lacoste glasses she always wore and stare into the mirror, grinning from ear to ear.

It was at this tender age that my love for fashion and beauty began. A self-confessed shopaholic (my grandmother says it’s in our blood, she’s a notoriously big one!), like a frenzied antique collector, it’s the thrill of the hunt followed by the immense satisfaction of finding the perfect missing piece.

Just as a picture paints a thousand words, an outfit acts as a visual fabrication of one’s persona. As a young professional making my way through the big, bad world, fashion has always been a means of self-expression and a way to stand out from the crowd!

I’m a big believer that less is more and love pieces that are easy, versatile yet elevate an outfit in an instant. I like to keep it minimalist, sophisticated but always with my own quirky twist!

In Carbon & Pearls, I hope to share with you my latest fashion finds, style trends and tips (and have a laugh or two) by yours truly, moi!

Enjoy reading!
