It’s no secret that the Loewe Puzzle Bag (THB 97,900) has gone viral in the past couple of seasons, but the more I see it on others, the more I decided I want one for myself. As I’m currently obsessed with soft-hued accessories, this caramel-nude colour effortlessly fills the bill. A stylish item to add to my handbag collection, the bag is trimmed with leathered patchworks and zipper details, giving it more dimensionality. With its high-quality grained calfskin, this luxurious bag is also practical for my everyday life, considering those fabulous events I need to attend. — Chanya Ormtavesub, Staff Writer
There is something really calm and charming about these Resort queen earrings (THB 2,650) from LA JEWELRY that make me want to get my hands on them. Like a pause of droplets that are slowly falling down, this ornate pair of earrings is crafted from lightweight glass and sterling silver. The deep blue colour also adds a senate, sophisticated accent to its dangling silhouette. It also features a white marble stud, making the design look chic and fresh. These delicate earrings are definitely appropriately stylish for any occasions. — CO
The dreamiest way to tell time this week definitely comes by way of Piaget’s mesmerising new Green Borealis watch (THB 1,740,000). Inspired by the Northern Lights, I was really struck by the captivating beauty and sense of mysticism of this timepiece. Bearing a shimmering blue, green, and deep purple feather marquetry dial, it’s a watch that allows its wearer to go stargazing from the wrist, with a twinkle of polished white gold hour markers mimicking a starry night sky. Saying goodbye to counting down the minutes to lunch, I want to get lost in time within this beauty instead. — Lisa Gries, Staff Writer
Born with dry, sensitive skin, I’ve always been on a lookout for a moisturiser with natural-based ingredients that can tackle my skin concerns without causing an allergic reaction. Recently, Herbivore Botanicals Rosewater Moisture Crème (THB 1,850) has come to my rescue. Infused with rose waters, white tea, and rice extracts, the nourishing and moisturising cream helps reduce redness and smoothens dry, uneven patches on the skin. I usually have it on at night, so that its aromatic rose scent can work a little magic, helping relieve my mind before lulling me to sleep. — CO
I’ve been searching for a new iPhone case for a while now, and this Mikiwuu Ocean Lover is a lovely alternative to my current plain one. Available in turquoise green and sky blue, this sparkly number is inspired by the seascape, with a cute design of palm trees and a lighthouse. Bringing a balmy touch, the liquid glitters float around as we move the smartphone. Designed to cover edges and curve in the front screen, this case helps shield against any accidental scuffs and scratches, too. — CO
