2011 Recap

Just a short post to remember 2011. An eventful year, been through many ups and downs of life. I really hope that I have learnt a lot about life through all these experiences. I have been happy, excited, surprised, anxious, sad, melancholy, grieving...a blast of emotions went through my head and heart at different times of my life.

I also take this moment to remember my father who has left us so suddenly, which has made me thought of how very very important it is to treasure your family and friends who are dear to your heart.

This song is for you my dad...we've been thinking of you so much...pray that you are in a good place in heaven...but wish you are here with us...

DIY Friendship Bracelets

I have been working on this project for quite some time now to kill my free time during weekends. Friendship bracelet is the hottest trend right now and a great way to brighten up your wrist with colors! lots of colors! Friendship bracelets make good companion with watches and make them look not so lonely :P

I have been inspired to take up making friendship bracelets as a hobby when I learnt how to make them from Honestly...WTF. This blog provides great source of ideas for those of you who loves to DIY =)

Apart from the usual chevron pattern, I tried some special patterns I saw on the web like the two bottommost bracelet.

My friend actually thinks that the last bracelet looks somewhat familiar to her and relates to something she usually works on; an eye diagram... hehe =0

Some beaded bracelets adds shimmers to your wrist as well.

This is a fairly easy DIY to learn although my earrings need extra touch-up to make them look lovelier, a pair of tassel earrings are especially sexy to wear...

What do you think of my DIY items? Are you inspired to make them as well? 
Have fun DIY-ings! =D

Been Accessories Hunting!

I seem to have this kind of rotation in shopping trend that I notice of myself. I was previously very into makeup and thus every thing I bought is related to makeup. And then, I start to realize that I have been wearing the same old clothes to work, then I start to concentrate on buying clothes again :S

Lately, I have been obsessed with collecting jewelries and accessories such as necklaces, earrings and especially rings. You may think that I must have missed out bracelets and anklets too...Well, I have been working on something, which I will show you guys soon I hope!

I have gotten these lovely cuties from my holiday in Australia.

I bought this set of earrings because of the mini Eiffel Tower stud earring. *hearts*

These long owl pendant necklace is a steal at $5 aud from Diva.

Turquoise or blue are very in this season and this long necklace especially comes with mixture of cruise inspired charms.

My rings collection, though not much but enough for me to pair them with different outfits.

How and where do keep your accessories when you go traveling? I keep mine in this cute little pouch to keep them safe and sound.

NOTD + Review - Spearmint Nail Polish

I have posted this on my twitter before, but I just want to repost this again, just in case some of you are not following me on twitter :P

It's a gorgeous bright mint color perfect for summer and holidays. I like Rubi nail polishes for being true to the color seen from the bottle but it smells of chemical so horribly when you open the bottle and lingers on for some time when you apply it on your nails. The smell will go off eventually.

You may need to use base coat and top coat in addition as the nail polish cracks easily and it will be an ugly sight to see :S I usually apply two coats for even finish.

I also found a simple tutorial here on how to apply nail polish the right way...


Please follow me on Twitter here =)

FoOd...*yum - yummy*

I don't normally post on food, but here are some random photos of what I love to eat :P

Steaks and Lamb Chops from TGI Fridays are irresistable!

Marche offers great lunch menu of Chicken Breast and Pizza ~~

Love Paddington House of Pancakes for their savoury and sweet selections of pancakes =)

Daorae is my favorite place to go to for Korean BBQs *hearts*

I stumbled upon Style Scrapbook a few years ago and I have been addicted to following her blog and observing her street style ever since. She has never failed to impress me with her great fashion ensemble and her journey to acknowledgment in the fashion industry.

I have been inspired by her wearable street style fashion that guides me to create my own style. Wearing two watches is one of the style that I love. I am also into her neon watches paired with assorted quirky bracelets.
