Hello hello!

3 04 2014

It has been a while! If you are reading this, thank you thank you thank you for still taking the time to give this lil blogger a chance. Don’t let me bore you with why I was missing in action, I am just glad to be back here and having a platform to write again.

So excited I don’t even know where to start! What have I been up to…

Last thing I ate:
Home made mini apple muffin, an oldie but a goodie recipe that I shared with you guys back in 2012! Speaking of which, clearly I am not on my wheat free diet anymore. I did use whole wheat to bake it though…

Last thing I watched:
The Voice ! Used to not get what the hype is all about, b ut now I am a fan! My favourite part is the relationship between the coaches – love love love them. Oh and whenever they steal.

Last time I ran:
Happy to share that it was only yesterday. And in about an hour, I am off to my gym for EPOC workout. I will be posting more about this EPOC workout shortly so stay tune !!

Last time I cooked:
Do salad and grilled cheese count as cooking? They were damn good though, I made pesto grilled cheese yesterday, and kale salad with honey balsamic vinaigrette yesterday – with boiled egg for extra protein!

My one last news:

Did I really just watch the finale of Gossip Girl…?

31 12 2012

I know I am late, forgive me, when did this episode air?

It really is the series finale? I feel like I’m saying good bye to a group of friends!

Truth be told, it hasn’t always been good.. But I do think that the show picked up this season so I guess it was a good time to end. What are you guys’ thoughts on it?

What do I have to say about it…?

Serena’s dress is GORGE. It’s so her, don’t you think?

 





Birthday Wish.

27 02 2012

My twenty-something birthday is coming up in a few days, and I don’t quite know how I should be feeling. Usually the first few months of the year is my favourite time of the year, with Valentines, my birthday, my anniversary, and the blooming flowers, with summer just few months away. But this year, I’m not quite feeling it, at least not yet. I haven’t even made up my mind on how to celebrate it yet! So to get myself in to the spirit, I made some wish list which usually is the sign of materialistic self absorption, but since I’m not actually giving it to my friends and family, I think it makes me only a little materialistically self absorbed.

Birthday Wishes.

– a simple, but really beautiful tank top tunic. I think this is a must-have item in our closets that are usually overlooked because of its simplicity. Don’t get it confused with wife beaters, because while it is comfortable, they are not too versatile. If the material is beautiful, and it fits right on your body, I think this tank top tunic has so much potential. I can see myself wearing this with leggings, a blazer, and some really fancy necklace all the time. I can even wear it to work because the material is fancy enough for business occasions!

– a super comfortable pair of flats in the prettiest colour of the rainbow. If you have been reading my posts, you will know how crazy I am about this, and I have yet to find them and purchase them. Since I moved, I actually have zero pairs of flats with me. And as many sandals. So whenever I need to step out of the apartment briefly with no socks on, my only option is to wear my heels. Or my runners with no socks, like we’re back in the 1950s… So yes, I need flats.

– a high waisted pair of shorts in pretty colours, including black. It’s a cute look, and I can still wear my boots with them! (Did you know that was the reason I don’t wear as many jeans? Because its cold, and I need my boots to warm me up, but the jeans inside boots look is not really for me because my calves are huge). SO owning more of high waisted pair of shorts would give me a more varied look, without taking away my warmth!

– a long sleeve, short flowy dress. This is currently my favourite look, inspired by Kourtney Kardashian. I’m a sucker for boyfriend look to begin with (like boyfriend sweater, or boyfriend shirts), and this is a more sophisticated, more feminine version of that, while still being extremely comfortable. It’s sexy in a playful, classy way, and it’s so versatile because I can wear it out, or to work. I just wish I can find more of it!

– a pair of sexy heels with toe caps. I honestly have no idea what the function of toe caps are, but I like how it looks. Having the toe cap in metallic like the one here adds that futuristic feel to it, without making it look out of place.

– a colourful purse, mayyyyybe a satchel. I used to be a sucker for a pop of colour in my look (seriously, I used to take my yellow Kenneth Cole with me everywhere, and I mean everywhere!) but since I invested in some brand name bags, I started playing safe because I wanted them to be timeless, but I really miss my pop of colours!! I’m thinking either red, or again, yellow.

– a shooting star. I could really use a wish right now… And I wouldn’t mind getting that necklace too.





Dresses of the Season.

13 12 2011

I don’t usually shop in Club Monaco… Not that I don’t like it, I think their stuff is great. Plain colours, but attention to the details of the style, which in my opinion is spot on. I think this is the store for me, love it. But the reason I own nothing from there, and will stay that way is because they are not exactly in my price range, but let’s not talk about depressing things like that.

Did you know they make such amazing dresses?

This was the dress that I fell in love with at the store, Melissa Strapless Dress. Oh so gorgeous, although I am sorry to say that it looked better on a hanger than styled like this. Regardless, it was love at first sight. The colour, the flow, the slit, the strapless, everything was spot on.

The salesperson came over and tried to sell it, even though I was ready to whip out my credit card there and then to make this baby mine. She asked me if I had any events this winter to attend at all, and all I could think was, I wish, I wish. So no, in the end, I did not end up getting it because this was ridiculously priced, and like how she reminded me, I have no occasion for this dress in the foreseeable future. Dang it. So gorgeous though. LOVE.

Second dress, Tamara Dress. You can’t see it here, but it has a very sexy back. Happens to cost more than the first one, and I know for a fact that I will never be buying this Tamara, no matter how pretty it is. It sure is pretty though.

Definitely will be checking out Club Monaco more now, especially if I have an event to attend that requires a full gown. Spend carefully this holiday though everyone!
