Sooooooooooooooooooooo it’s been the longest time since I’ve updated the blog but for a while I was really bored of my closet and had nothing to wear, especially in the sort of in-between-season weather HK was having a few weeks back..and then this last week I’ve been super sick with bronchitis mixed with my usual asthma..and I’m still not really over it yet – still coughing like a 60 year old smoker and it sucks like shit.
ooooooooookay so enough of that complaining. Nothing else has really been going on lately. Well PB finally got a TV for his apartment..it was unexpectedly huge and now makes his apartment look tiny haha. We also got this super awesome Lack TV table from Ikea for HK$249..about US$30 which is dirt cheap. God I love Ikea..and when me and PB go, we don’t do the 500DOS thing..more like we pick out everything we would have in our future giant apartment/mansion.
Oh yah and this H&M dress in these pics are a new-ish buy. It’s kinda hole-y and awesome. I got the largest size cos I wanted to wear it as a dress but the knit is kinda heavy so it gets kinda..droopy after a long wear. Also, the knitted loops keep getting caught on my bag making them pull but I guess the hole-ier the better?
Me and PB new Vans :D
Oh so i finally got a pair of polka dot tights. I’d been looking for these for ages and I never thought to just check H&M duhhhhh. My jumungo thighs stretch the polka dots out so PB thought the dots were HANDS lol.
Typical HK street market in Central.
LOL but did you guys notice this super cute granny???? She’s holding two melons/pumpkins on her shoulders LOL. She was standing there chit-chatting with her GF (granny-friend) for like at least 10 minutes lol
The crowd outside a Wan Chai bar on a Sunday watching the Pacqy fight. Do you spot someone in the crowd????
We went to this really good dimsum place called Che in Wan Chai where they’re famous for these CHA SIU CHAN BAO. No idea what the English translations are but they’re basically like cha siu baos (pork buns) but with the sort of bor lo bao (pineapple bun) outer layer. Too bad I don’t eat pork..but I do rmb back in the day that these are seriously good. For a meal with 9 people, we ordered 15 buns haha.
ehaehahehaehahe..where’d you go there PB!?!?!?
LOL the cutest 2 month old baby. He was constantly in shock :O
I recently picked up some very awesome supplies to make these new DIY studded cuff and necklace. I’ve worn the cuff a couple of times and since the studs are plastic, they’re not painful or anything and its very comfortable. The necklace is something simple and kind of subtle. I haven’t worn this one out yet but I wear a lot of black so most of the time you can’t see when I wear black necklaces on black tops but this would look awesome worn with a plain white tee.
BTW, I’ve noticed a few people saying that I should start an Etsy store or something for all the stuff I make. Well I’ve been thinking about this whole store thing for a really long time..and I do have something in the works but for now, if there is something you see that you would like, feel free to shoot me an email letting me know which item you like and we can discuss pricing etc. I’m also open to customization..so if there’s something you like but wish it was different in some way, I’m always open to hearing suggestions.
After seeing this CKane for Topshop tote on a couple of blogs I had to make a stop by the insanely awesome Page-One bookstore and pick up a copy myself. I don’t think you get this in America or Europe but in Japan they always have these catalogue-magazines of different brands’ collections and most of the time they come with some sort of free gift. Usually the gift is kinda of shitty quality but I was surprised this CKane tote isn’t toooo bad. Definitely not too shabby for Denise!
AND FINALLY, this sort of thing has been popping up here and there on the blogosphere but ever since I picked up my first issue of Nylon back in like early 2005, their last page has always been my favourite feature. I’ve been meaning to do this sort of thing for the longest time but I’m never at home during the day to get good light.
Also, it couldn’t have been a better timing because the amazing ladies over at Hearty Mag are doing a “Dump your Bag” contest. Click here to find out all the details and to see the amazing prize from Stussy you could be winning!
Warning: I’m like one of those old ladies who carry around everything in their bag. My bag is constantly heavy (sth which PB hates hehe) and I like stealing coins from around the house so that always adds to the weight (hehehe ninz heehehehe). Also, carrying around the DSLR everyday is NO fun for my shoulders and with the studded/metal thing still going strong on bags, my BAG itself is always heavy to begin with -.-
Clockwise from top-left:
Mulberry Bayswater, Purell in Apple scent (YES someone ship over more of these for me?), WESC headphones, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, DIY fluffy cosmetic case (see below), hairpins, dayquill, random mirror, keys, Extra gum, D&G wallet, ventolin inhaler, Hi-Tec pen, l’occitane handcream, Revlon lipstick, Carmex, Loewe cardholder thingie with my octopus card, random Guerlain Idylle perfume sample and Tempo Tissue <3. And now, inside my fluffy monster of a cosmetic bag. (which I made myself..and tutorial coming up soon on Ladylike – check back soon)
Aquaphor sth, Neosporin, Shu Uemura cream rouge, Clinique compact, baby tiger balm, disgusting nail file, baby Tylenol bottle, baby jar of Clinique dermawhite foundation, contacts case, Maybelline define-a-line eyeliner, another Revlon lipstick, Clinique moisture-surge, L’oreal eyebrow pencil and lastly, Clean&Clear Advanced acne treatment pimple cream (this is my life).
Completely gross and disgusting in there no? I mean just look at my nail file..which I actually ended up throwing after I took that picture haha.
And finally FINALLY, the winner of my contest back from like almost a month ago is……………….
