BAZAAR Web is introducing an exclusive collective called the BAZAAR #DigitalDiary where we go into the lives of new-age girls, local by heritage and international by culture. Stay dated with our #BAZAARDigitalDiary hashtag for a delectable churn of our local millennial ladies. Watch this space as BAZAAR has the best of the new breed.
To premiere our series, BAZAAR introduces the globetrotting @gemlim, Gemma Lim – she’s got a stylish edge like no other, the brains of a genius – a graduate from the London School of Economics, a life as cultured as it gets and an international circuit of friends from across the European continent and beyond.
Invest in the unique – your belongings piece together a visual story of your life.
Eclectic and bohemian
I bought the studded Chloe Susanna boots four years ago and they have not left my feet since.
Re-done Levi’s, handmade FEIT trainers and 1920s silk kimonos.

Girl crushing on Pandora Sykes at the moment (@pandorasykes).
Minetta Tavern in New York for the Black Label Burger.
Formentera is the smallest of the Balearic islands and is simply magic. Spend the day soaking up the sun at Beso Beach before feasting on freshly caught seafood in the secret garden at Can Carlos. You can then burn off the calories at Blue Bar, where locals dance barefoot to live reggae and salsa.
Jordan Betten’s use of exotic skins (leather, alligator, snakeskin, fur) in his clothing and accessories is truly an art form in itself.
For the ultimate digital detox, stay at the Jeeva Beloam Beach Camp in Lombok- it’s like being on an episode of Lost/ Survivor.
London will always have a special place in my heart.
The Exumas in the Bahamas is every beach hippy’s, and my, dream destination.
What makes a woman powerful?
Self confidence, positivity and an opinion.
Three Power icons growing up?
Leandra Medine for reminding us that fashion IS fun (and for singlehandedly making wearing denim overalls at a post-toddler age acceptable again). Mark Zuckerberg for transforming the world of digital connectivity. Mama and Papa Lim for…everything?
