Woohoo yay an update that isn’t more than a month late. Wahahah and there’s so much to post today! Thankfully my life has started to calm down and I’ve been lucky enough to be less stressed at work and have been given the chance to relax more, especially during the weekends. That teaching job that I was doing on Saturday mornings has finally finished. I love kids and all but 3 hours nonstop (literally NO BREAKS) from 9.30am on a Saturday morning teaching English to Chinese kids a range of 7 to 13 year olds just did not make me feel good. Every Saturday at 12.30pm, my voice would be dying from screaming non-stop at the 9/10 year olds. So fking glad that’s over. However, I am thinking about teaching at an art school sort of thing or just those weekend arts & crafts classes for kids. At least that’d be more in my common interests and hopefully there wouldn’t be like 25 9 year olds not listening and throwing things at each other.
OHhhhhhhhhhhh yah and here’s my new hair. lol I’m so boring, I just dyed it depp-blue/black but it just came out pretty dang black. When it’s really really sunny out then you can kinda see hints of blue but most of the time it’s just flat black. I also chopped about 2 inches off my hair but that’s also unnoticeable and not much of a change. I think this is the most I could do to it right now. I’m still very protective over my hair and do NOTTTTTTTT want to chop it off anymore. What do you guys think?
H&M sweats, F21 tee, Zara boyfriend blazer, Luna Bi circle scarf, Converse chucks.
Weee so I pretty much recycled this same sort of outfit for 3 or 4 days haha. Forgot to bring extra clothes with me when I stayed at PB’s place over the weekend. Some people have asked about PB so let me just lay things out. Yep, PB lives in HK now and he has his own place. Just recently his neighbour moved out so we moved into that guy’s place cos it’s much bigger. We now have an actual living room with a sofa and a much bigger bedroom that has a king-sized bed! So awesome that we found that affordable place that comes with all the furniture AND it’s pretty dang close to where I work so I can sleep in more in the morning before work :D I normally stay at PB’s place during the weekend and at my mom’s place during the week when I have work.
Oh and these are the sweatpants from H&M that I was talking about a few posts back. I decided to be adventurous and wear these out during the day with flat chucks instead of heels. I felt kinda fat and baggy all day but ah well I think it worked overall. At first I thought I’d never wear these sweats without heels but when I’m going to work, I always wear flat shoes/sneakers cos I’m normally late for work and needa run from the train hahaha.
Last weekend was awesome. PB and I had a really relaxing and fun weekend. Lots of walking around and we ended up watching The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. The movie was great and the whole time I was super sad about Heath Ledger and when Johnny Depp says “Nothing is permanent, not even death,” I swear I choked up a bit and ALMOST teared. Otherwise, the imagery is so colourful and fantastical and the costumes are beautiful. Lily Cole was surprisingly good and looked gorgeous throughout. Sidenote: I’m definitely a huge huge fan of the doll-face models like Jessica Stam and Gemma Ward (sad face Y.Y).
Soooooooooooooooooooooooo busy playing on my iPhone on the bus.
Spotted these two trendy lil locals in Causeway Bay. If you can see, his friend also had the same matching patent spikey knapsack. I thought it looked pretty dang cool but I would never use it hahaha
PB overload XD:
90% of the time, PB is photographed with/around/eating/thinking about food.
Curry in a Hurry! PB making an extremely difficult decision.
I love fashion just as much as any other “fashion blogger” but I gotta admit, my first love will always be design. I’ve often thought about ditching design for a career more focused on fashion but I don’t think I would ever be able to make the switch. Anyhow, I just wanted to share with you guys some design books (plus a Jewellery book) that I’ve been dying to get my hands on. If I were super rich, after buying shoes and handbags, I’d probably splurge a good amount of my money on books. I can’t wait till I’m older and have my own apartment where I could have a huge shelf of books where hopefully I’d be organized enoguh and have them all either arranged by height or colour.
On Feb 25th, I’ll be going back to my family land of Singapore to visit my cousin’s new baby and to see my grandma and everything. I have to admit though, I am equally just as excited to be visiting my darlings Topshop and Forever 21. I can’t believe they have those in Singapore and not in Hong Kong! We need Topshop and Forever21 soooooooooo badly!! However, the bad thing about opening those stores in HK is that it wouldn’t make me feel special anymore lol. Before H&M opened in HK, I always thought I was sooooooo cool wearing stuff in HK that no one else had cos I bought my stuff from NY. If Topshop and F21 open up here, literally everyone and their mother will always be wearing something from there.
Anyway, back to my point: so I’m going to doing a fair bit of shopping when I’m back in Singapore. Unlucky for my wallet, I recently fell in love with a bunch of stuff from Asos.com. I just wish shipping wasn’t so freaking expensive -.- Anyway, so I’ve decided that I’ll only be getting stuff from Asos if, for some odd reason, I didn’t get anything in Topshop or F21.
Here are some of my picks
TBA handmade collar silk dress | Warehouse silky paperbag waist shorts | Asos lace full skirt
Asos floral button tshirt dress | Staple contrast mesh sleeve tshirt dress | Asos cuffed jersey trousers
Asos bow-back skater dress | Love Milly tulip skirt dip dye denim dress
I am sooooooooo dying for the bow-back skater dress and the mesh sleeve tshirt dress (although I think I can easily DIY this) and the beaded silk-collar dress is to dieeee for. Okay bahhhhhh nvm I just want everything.
Wanted to share this awesome shoe I found in some super old design magazine at work. How crazy and sculptural is this? Reminds me so much of something insane that Gareth Pugh or RIck Owens would do. What do you guys think? Designed by Bart Hess.
Sooooooooooo I finally started watching Glee and I am sooooooooooooo in love. Such an awesome show. In 3 days, I’m already on episode 10 and right after I finish typing this post, I’m going to catch one more episode before I sleep. It’s getting late now, eep, it’s 12:53am already..but there’s always time for Glee :D
Anyhow was watching forgot what episode (I think the one with the diva-off) where Rachel (the nose.) wore this amazing Marc by Marc Jacobs dress. I remember wanting this so bad last Spring/Summer 2009 and after seeing the dress on her, I’ve started dying for it all over again. I’ve searched everywhere online but it is so impossible to find it. I did find something similar at Topshop (third pic), which hopefully I will find in the store, but does anyone know where I can get the actual MxMJ dress? If I can’t find it, I’m thinking about just sewing up a cream lace t-shirt dress with black strips myself but really, I’d prefer the real deal. Please help!
Obi says HUH?
See you guys after my Singapore trip!
