Hello guys! Guess what happened. It was so amazing and surreal that it felt like a dream come true. It was such an incredible honor to be a part of the NUYOU Magazine cover issue. This post is specially dedicated to the NUYOU team. We feel really grateful to be invited to be the guest cover of their magazine. The honest, we are kind of guilty because we both are feeling a little bit shy to openly express our gratitude for the people, friends, family, love and experiences around us. In this post, we’re not just saying thank you to the NUYOU Team, especially the talented stylist WeeChee, but we would also love to personally thank our readers, especially the community that believe and has always been supporting us from the beginning. It took us a whole lot effort and time to build our business.
All things aside, lets get back to talking about our cover photoshoot. The shoot was extremely tough, probably the toughest shoot we ever had. It was a 12-hour shoot along with the team of NUYOU that includes the professional styling crew, makeup artist, hairstylist, photographer and assistants. There were some complications during the photoshoot such as problems with the lighting, dryness, sweltering weather and mosquito attack(haha). Depite the complications, we really enjoyed the experience. We learned that teamwork makes the dream work. Without co-operation real success is impossible.
So, how does it feel when your dream comes true? It was a sweet mix of pure happiness and self pride. And the best part is, when you share the story with everybody around you, it gives them the motivation to go ahead and pursue their dreams. Achieving one of your dreams is something important. Always remember that enthusiasm is key. Yes, enthusiasm is often neglected as a force, without enthusiasm, its hard to achieve your goals. The only thing that holds you back is the effort of taking action. You know what they say, actions speak louder that words.
Once again, we want to express our gratitude and aprreciation to everyone who participated in our blogging works and projects, and we hope that it would ultimately result in an even larger success due to any future potential collaborations.

We've all had that feeling first thing Monday morning -'Monday Blues'. Most of my friends always complaints why the weekend has gone and how it can already be the start of the working week. But I don't think we have to be this way. I believe one small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day, and you don't need a new year to make a change, all you need is a Monday! I know it seems easy and breezy for me to say, but trust me - it's better to be this positive way.
Oh yes, almost forgot this post is about my refreshing look for Monday. I always dress like Monday is a brand new day to make a change - with my perfectly makeup and hairstyle, an outfit like I'm going to see my enemy. In this post, I wore a long brown coat from Martine Rose, White T-shirt from Ottolinger and skinny jeans and black ankle boots from Ann Demeulemeester. I love this brown long coat because it helps creating looks that are inspiring and different. So guys, Monday is here. Let's start this week with some dose of humor, shall we?

Good morning and happy Friday! I showed you guys a preview of this outfit on Instagram (@evangelineyan) but I love to share them on the blog because I can upload many more and also I can share you all the details of what I wear. In this look, is all about my love for oversized blazer, the huge trend of this season. This oversized blazer is full of fun details and I'm loving their silhouette and the fabric is perfect for spring and summer. Also, I love how just a piece item can makes your whole outfit outstanding and fashionable. I was wearing the oversized blazer with an oversized white shirt from Raf Simons and a pair of boots, and voila!

Thanks for stopping by and hope your week is going well!
I'd never thought I'd say this, but I'm currently obsessing with this pink bag from Gucci. Most of you guys know that I am not a huge fan of pink. My style is usually kinda edgy and causal, so pink definitely isn't a color expect showing up in my outfits. But the best part about fashion is there's no "rules and it is full of fun. Means, you don't have to style yourself in a distinctly feminine way with pink. In this outfit, I wanted to neutralizing the pink bag, so I wore a distressed dress in black, matching with an oversized parka and a pair of boots to create an edgy-chic outfit. As you can see, the ensemble still remaining my edgy style but with the new pink popped up.

Okay, I usually like to keep my private matters private. I don't really like to share too many personal opinions on social media platforms except some funny quotes that speaks my thought clearly. But I thought I could make an exception this time to share my personal thoughts here.
I have faith that true beauty is not related to how hot your body is or what color your eyes are. True beauty is about who you are as a human being, confidence and your moral compass. Back to when I was a teenager, I believed that it was more important to be beautiful on the outside - to have sharper nose, slimmer face, longer hair and bigger eyes. In fact, I was having the strong feeling of inferiority about my appearance. I wasn't tall enough like those supermodel and I wasn't pretty enough like her and this and that. I didn't even know how to love myself. Over a span of time, I'd realized that how could I think in that way, such a shallow dumb b*tch. Why I compared myself to friends around me? It drove me crazy and made me cried in middle of the night most of the time. It took quite a long time to convinced me to believe that above all things physical, it is more important to be beautiful on the inside - to have a big heart and an open mind and confidence. Because we really are living in a society that focuses so much on physical appearance. If you pay more attention, most people's inside are ugly and disgusting. Even pretty people have very unattractive insides.
To me, beauty is about being comfortable. It is about knowing and accepting who you are. I am happy being who I am. I'm confident even though most of my friends still thinking the way I'm wearing my clothes is weird. I don't really care, I live honestly and truthfully, and I think that is a reason why I was chosen to Paris Fashion Week, and chosen as plenty brands of ambassador and won my dream job - fashion buyer. It's just bonus that I have an incredible twin sister, Cherrie. She is a professional full-time fashion blogger. I am so lucky enough to have her in my life because she never control me at all. She doesn't like my manager who always complaints my Instagram are boring and lack of communication with my followers. Means? I seldom post about food, coffee, selfie and you know what I am trying to tell. '' Why Evangeline is wearing a super-duper oversized cardigan for? She can't even use her cellphone in that cardigan.'' Hey, I don't even care what you say. I don't really mind her style is better than mine or her face is prettier than mine. I don't want to be a crazy b*tch again.
Speaking about my style, I love the current me, truly deeply madly. In this post, I'm wearing Balenciaga blazer and paired with vintage trousers and Ann Demeulemeester Boots to create the girl boss vibe but in slightly more edgy and masculine feel.
