Each Day is filled with new challenges and exciting experiences that we just want to fully enjoy and take in. Recently we have the opportunity to collaborate with Coach on their #WhatsYourSwagger social campaign and we got to choose the Swagger bags to show off our individual personalities. Yeah, that's sound really interesting! As you might have already known, Stuart Vevers is the new Executive Creative Director of Coach. His Coach Fall'14 debut collection is luxurious, every pieces are effortlessly cool and functional, which is something new for the brand. We believe the Swagger bag will become Coach's IT bag. It is perfect bag for everyday use. Personally we love useful and practical bags where we can throw in everything we need to rock our day. We got out Swagger bags in matte black and pastel blue, we decided to style it an effortless and casual chic style, and another in a more glam-casual style in leopard coat and little black dress. 

As mentioned, we got the Swagger bags to show off our personality. I've customized my Coach Swagger with my daily essentials; my camera, headphones, sunglasses, cosmetics, fashion magazine and snacks. It's just like my swagger. 

Another Coach Swagger, just like my swagger: the Beatles gramophone record, headphones, camera and sunglasses. 

So, tell us #WhatsYourSwagger?

We didn't review any face oil on blog before, but we won't act like face oil is some hot new thing. It's been around for beauty industry and has become increasingly more mainstream these days. I mean, who would ever want to add extra oil on their skin?! And why do we need to add face oil to our skincare routine? In fact, face oils actually make your skin super soft, glow and never greasy. Think of face oils like vitamins for your skin and adding them to your skincare routine can make your skin even more gorgeous. One of the most luxurious product I've come across has to be the Lancome Absolue Precious Oil Nourishing Luminous Oil. For those who are really serious about their skincare, one drop of Lancome nourishing oil is all you need. 

Lancome Absolue Precious Oil Nourshing Luminous Oil is a face oil that nourishes and revitalizes skin. The formula contains even plant and essential oils, including rose essential oil to accelerate cutaneous barrier repair. The other plant and essential oils are rich in fatty acids to hydrate skin and ensure cell cohesion. Besides the immediate hydrating benefits, the nourishing face oil also helps to smooth the appearance of fine lines, plump up the skin and improve elasticity. 

It should be applied between toner and serum and its function is to help skin look radiant. I applied 2-3 drops after my toner but before my serum and moisturizer, and simple massage the face oil into my skin every night before bed and in the morning to achieve a radiant and healthy glow. It's the best face oil I've ever used. It sinks into my skin so quickly, and the texture is light and it is not oily or heavy at all. It's incredibly hydrating and your skin will not look oily or greasy.  

It is probably one of the luxurious products I've ever put on my face. It's worth it and I swear it gee my skin a beautiful slow and make my skin look radiant. If you're into face oil, this is the one.

It has been a beautiful, busy and crazy day during Berlin Fashion Week. I were invited by Pearly Wong to attend Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin. It was my first trip to Berlin and this was my first actual time attending the Berlin fashion week and I was looking forward to discover new german fashion labels. The MBFWB is held at Brandenburg Gate, it's such a wonderful place and I truly wish to being able to come back and spend some time there to explore all the different areas and hidden conners. There seem to be so many interesting cafes, restaurants, boutiques and landmarks, that don't look special from the outside but it’s so refreshing to see a whole new culture. 

My first show at MBFWB was Pearly Wong. It's been freezing there in Berlin, making me want to wear something light, so I chose this beautiful leather coat from Pearly Wong F/W'14 collection. Since I know that I'll be freezing in winter, so I wore a high neck long sleeve and leggings underneath the chiffon dress for added warmth. I don't want my whole outfit look bulky, so a coat with a sleek cut can lengthen and slim down my silhouette. 

The MBFWB was amazing and it was fun meeting the locals and being able to relax in the beautiful lounge. Here are some pictures during the MBFWB. 

Fashion week however always keeps us busy, but I can't be more thankful enough for the opportunities.

Duo Gigs has been featured on a variety of different magazines and websites. We just updated our Press Page for you guys to check it out. We are so excited to keep living all these amazing experiences together and hope to surprise you all the time with new adventures. Before publishing the rest of our posts from our Europe trip, I would love to share with you a quick update about the backstage of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin. We've been leading with the MBFWB team and Pearly Wong team. It's a great opportunity to follow them to get to know more about the backstage works and fashion shows. On that day before the fashion week, we were following the teams and other designers to the backstage. The team gave us a brief introduction about the stage lighting designs, sound systems, designer time slot schedule, and designer discussing with the Maybeline makeup team and L'Oreal hair team to see what's the model's hair and makeup would look like. I was so impressed by how the team is so efficient and quick. Usually we just attending the fashion show, but this little backstage trip I have learned more. 

The next day I was reporting live for Streething during the first day of Berlin Fashion Week. Before the fashion show starts, I got my passes to Pearly Wong backstage for a little backstage report. Seriously everyone in backstage is busy with their own tasks. From the hair and makeup tests, runway rehearsal to showtime, designers and production team work together to make the show a reality. I'm seriously so impressed and excited for all the fashion shows! It's going to be amazing. 

It's been nonstop since we've stepped off the plane, but I'm absolutely loving every minute of it. 
Stay tuned for the next coming Berlin Fashion Week post.
