Less Is More

This shall be my first outfit post. I'm trying out different blogging styles and content. Do let me know what you'd like to see more of (e.g ripped stockings how-to?). I welcome critics too.

Top from m)phosis
I love this top for the details on the back. Made of cotton, it is subtly translucent without attracting too much of attention. Best part? It only cost me $17.50, on sale.

Simple eyes and bold lip colour, hassle free face.


Ten Rules for being Human

Hi everyone, I stumbled upon this online and thought it's pretty interesting. Hope it will encourage some of you out there like it had for me.


Ten Rules for Being Human by Cherie Carter-Scott

1. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it's yours to keep for the entire period.

2. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called, "life."

3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error, and experimentation. The "failed" experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately "work."

4. Lessons are repeated until they are learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.

5. Learning lessons does not end. There's no part of life that doesn't contain its lessons. If you're alive, that means there are still lessons to be learned.

6. "There" is no better a place than "here." When your "there" has become a "here", you will simply obtain another "there" that will again look better than "here."

7. Other people are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.

8. What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.

9. Your answers lie within you. The answers to life's questions lie within you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

10. You will forget all this.


I like the last part haha.

Happy Valentine's Day!

My boy surprised me this morning with heart shaped toasts at my doorstep! There wouldn't be a better way to start my day.

Boyfriend delighted upon receiving a fake bouquet of roses I made for him.

For occasions like this I like to be a little more crafty though I'm not exactly the most creative person out there. In the end I decided to make a fake bouquet. Not just pleasing to the eye, but edible and usable too!

Idea adapted HERE.

For the one I made, 4 coloured pens were turned into 'roses' by wrapping green fabric tape along with a single rose stalk. The flower jar was filled with plum centered candies then I took old bouquet wrappers to cover the fillings. Secured with mafia string. Sprayed those flowers with a perfume of my choice so they smell just as good as real ones.

Had a wholesome lunch at Marche restaurant.  
My valentine's day outfit consisted of a fitting dress (tailored) that flatters my frame, some pattered leggings with plain flats and a turban! Yes, I fell in love with that $5 turban recently and I knew I had to get it. It's comfortable and keeps my hair in place.

Visited the Underwater World; I have been wanting to go for some time.
Shall end my entry with a quote:
"The most exciting, challenging, significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you that you love... Well, that's just fabulous."


Reunion Dinner

Update on my flowers:

Everything in the vase displayed signs of withering except for these.



Every year, my CNY consists of a small family dinner and visits to a relative and maybe some good friends. This time happens to be a bit different. Had the opportunity to fly over to Hong Kong to have renunion dinner with my closest relatives there.

Cousin from Shanghai

Feels great to meet up with relatives and cousins I've not spoken to in years. I have always been envious of people with big families.


What The Hell

"Really Avril? 7 years ago, Avril Lavigne made a song called "Don't Tell Me". it was about Avril respecting herself and not mess around with her boyfriend, this time she didn't "throw it all away." But now, What The Hell is about her having sex 24/7.  All of you are saying she's "growing up". Yeah, growing up means that you're 25 and you're making songs like you're 16. Money changed Avril Lavigne, not her age. I'm a huge fan of Avril, but I miss the "Don't Tell Me" Avril."

I love receiving flowers. I mean, who doesn't? Flowers might not be the most practical gifts, but a bouquet full of them is absolutely lovely and pleasing to the eye.

Every time I receive flowers, I'm bound to face a dilemma - whether to leave them perfectly arrange and wrapped or move them into a vase. Either way they'll wither eventually. Am I the only one facing this problem?

Fresh flowers can really brighten up the overall feel of a room!
In the end I'll always chose to place them into a clear vase. Then I'll pray that they'll stay this way for as long as possible.

Nothing lasts, not in the name of nature. They're not supposed to anyway. Guess that's what makes them so precious and beautiful.
