Jewellery!

The fingers need twiddling. While the Significant Other twiddles HIS fingers on his Xbox console, I thread, twirl, snip and tweak my beads, pearls and gemstones. I have been pretty much a crafty person as far as I can remember, inherited much from my beloved late mom :)

A few pictures :) *psst, they're for sale too. Just email me.

Photobucket
Smokey quartz, Swarovski crystals and Czech glass earrings.

Winter Sonata
I call this Winter Sonata because it somehow reminds me of winter :) Made of Polish and Swarovski crystals, Swarovski pearls and smokey quartz to match the earrings.

Photobucket
Made from amazonite faceted ovals and beads. I personally love this piece because its got the ethnic character and does not overwhelm my Thumbelina frame :)

Fashion powerhouse getting sued ?

Posted on Channelnewsasia.com

"Chanel does not do knitting"



I can't help but laugh at this whilst nomnomnom-ing my Fillet O Fish Macca's brekkie at my desk. Not a pretty sight with tartare sauce on my lips, mouth full with yummy soft bun and chuckling like an old fool with no teeth.

World Tricot founder is suing Chanel for 2.5million Euros after she spotted a crochet design in a Chanel boutique. I was chuckling to myself because, I am imagining old ladies, sitting around a table, or in front of the tv on a rocking chair knitting. Then the end products sold to high end luxrury powerhouses. Hmm... should I dig up my mom's knitting craftworks (hey, she made awesome pullovers with cable designs and all you know!) and then try selling to Armani Exchange? Or learn to knit - actually I can knit, but all I can make is miles and miles of shawls/scarfs, mummy bandage - this one must be hilarious if knitting was invented during the times of Pharoahs (think King Tut with a turtleneck).

The company, used to have 90 employees in 2001, but now they're only left with 12 after the clash with the Titans. Haiyah, thats, 12 more people who will end up jobless if the company go bust. Then its back to knitting pseudo-designer baby booties and cashmere berets in front of the tv or the front porch.

Work formalities

Was fashionably and embarrasingly late. Got lost and drove along the same road TWICE. I hate the CBD. ERP gantries everywhere and everytime you make a wrong turn, you get out of the restricted area and then you have to pass yet another gantry. My stomach does a squeeze and a flip everytime I drive under those big blue things and my IU unit go 'beep'. STOP TAKING MY MONEY ALREADY!

Here's what I wore for the appointment.

Photobucket
I love the graphic prints on this dress.

Pardon the blurness, the SO took this photo and I was giggling at something he said.

Dress from this shop tucked away in Chinatown. Me and the group of girls I was with after having a birthday champagne brunch at Senso, stumbled along this shop on the way for our foot massages. Three of us got the same dress! Cute or what!

Jill Stuart!

I cp-ed two eye-jellies from a friend who went to Japan recently.

Photobucket
Photobucket
*LOVES*

Verdict: Smells yummy, texture super smooth when swatched. Colour payoff is pretty good, applies sheer when you want a nice soft shimmery colour and intensifies** when you pat more on.
** Not the kind of intense colour you expect from a MAC eye colour though.

Here's a swatch of two colours under normal lighting, no flash.

NTS: Bring camera at all times. The HTC Diamond has the suckiest camera quality EVER.

R had a mission. Buy new top for her tea party this Saturday. OK, I think something simple, clean lines and definitely one for both work and play. R looks good in teal! This soft knot top is light enough for not-so-blistering-hot days and doesn't cling on the bulges (and adds a bit of structure which I like)

Photobucket
Told you my hp camera suck!

I was wearing the pregnant woman dress from Cotton on, my red+white nautical wedges from Charles& Keith, waist elastic belt from Chinatown and my trusty Balenciaga.

Photobucket
Argh! Ugly picture again!

Miss Loveforheels didn't indulge in anything that day despite the gorgeous dresses that called out my name, brushing my skin with their pretty chiffons, polyester blends and synthetic cottons. Hurhur. Just you wait ladies, I'mma coming for you when I get my paypacket! Rah!

Got a red soled surprise!

It has been a year of dating and the significant other, otherwise known as Mr Big or better known as Mr Incredible, surprised me with an abso-fuckin-lutely gorgeous pair of Christian Louboutins. I couldn't say much but I was (and still) all smiles and simply put, in ecstacy :)

29th June 2009

Of Sci Fi soap opera and zebra pate.

Super casual day out to E@L's with SO.

Photobucket

almost fluorescent yellow MNG top - $9

light blue Zara denim shorts - $49 (???) courtesy of SO and his "those shorts will look HOT on you" days

While the boys were cursing and swearing at Cylons and hybrids, I kept myself busy giving myself a manicure with my new nail polish :) Decided to go for the lovely shade of fuschia for the whole summer look.

nice?

June 28th, 2009

20 mins till E arrives with R. Me no drive, me in pain thanks to the weekend huff-and-puff @ Sentosa. We're heading to Queensway to get R's $20 jeans. "Cheap cheap, good good, last long long" As R says... cool!

Queensway is a good place to get sports gear, jeans (if you don't mind the no-brand jeans for a steal) and stuff, you'll never know what you may find for your needs and tastes. Cowboy boots? Lumberjack Jeans?

I ended up getting 2 pairs of FBT running shorts at $12 each. one in total black, and the other in black with a hot pink stripe almost on the trim of the shorts. Matchy-matchy with R! We're not planning to tell S about our matchy purchase (hehe! we love you, S)

Photobucket

Then we headed to Far East Plaza for some 'old school' eats at Cahaya Restaurant. I think the last time I had a meal there was at least 3 years ago. Nothing personal, but the food there isn't as good as I remembered and the smell of food just sticks to your clothes even if you just walk pass the eateries.

We wandered through the shops and there is this outlet which sells Mondo shoes at a bargain. Its like a bargain bin in a whole shop! Shoes as cheap as $3, $9.90 or $15.90 If you look around slowly, you might be able to find pretty heels, wedges, or strappies. I found silver pointy heels, with silver heels (very fierce) at $15.90 per pair, awesome black strappies at a steal for that dressy night out, platinum peeptoe wedges which can bring you from work to play. I dug up some treasures for R (new bf lah, totally inspired to look pretty you know!). She ended up with 2 pairs of shoes at $25!!! Bargain or what!

At this point, I was feeling kinda jealous that she got an awesome loot and I remembered that I was supposed to check Heatwave out for black strappy heels. I have trouble finding strappies which won't make my toes look like crinkle cut fries even more than they are now. I found this backless strappy black pair which is so so pretty :) at $39.90 after discount. Yay!

Next stop, Skin Food. Needed to get nail polish. Naked toes with no colour look ugly on me. With the current economic crunch, I decided to give my own pedicures and manicures and save that dollar for other indulges :)















So we ended the day with some tea at Starbucks United Square, a cuppa Camomile tea for R and a cuppa Berryblossom tea for me... Life's tough :)

Shoppaholic goes budget!

I love shopping*, well, so does any other woman. I'd call them a liar if they said they don't like to shop. Whether its shoes, bags, clothes, makeup or even books and stationery, its still shopping! Inspired by my ever so enthusiastic girlfriend, R, I decided to to drop the emo, and blog about my wardrobe, tips for finding the awesome-most deals and steals and Sales Sales SALES!!!

Not everyone can afford a $400 dress paired with $200 shoes (even if they are already 70% off retail price...) In my humble opinion, looking good doesn't require you to break the bank. All it takes is a good eye and open mind to the endless possibilities the fashion and retail world has to offer! :)

Here's to shoppaholics (including those who are in denial of being one)! xoxo


*understatement, really, I LOVE shopping

A Brand New Year

A new lease of life, a new love a new blog. A new space in the cyberworld that allows me to keep my anonymity, peek around and pen my thoughts.

Life has been kind :)
