Talk about double checking. So I was invited to a birthday party through text messaging and absent-mindedly thought July 30 is a Saturday. Lo and behold, I was at a mall gift-hunting this Friday when the birthday celebrant called and asked about my whereabouts. It turned out that the party had started and I had no hope of catching up. So much about anticipation and sent my heartfelt apologies to the birthday girl, promising a celebration for deux.

On another hand, I tried to wear this silk Chloe blouse that I bought ages ago. The billowy shape is quite challenging as I'm not exactly size zero and I'm petite. But I also think that fashion should be fun and there's always room for experimenting, don't you think?

Have a lovely weekend to everyone!

I swear, people stopped and stared at my glasses whenever I walked past by them at the mall. I decided to give them a try after seeing them on numerous bloggers. I liked how it kinda "hid" my face, like a mask, that made me comfortable. Today was a humid day and I wanted to be comfortable at work so I wore this very casual dress and added some leggings to make it "work appropriate". I know you've seen just about everything I wear in this post but I do get attached to some of my clothes and accessories that I always repeat them :)


Also, I'm excited to travel again to Hong Kong and then to Macau ( I've never been there) but this time, I'm going by myself. Some people say, travelling alone has the greatest impact on their lives. At some point, I realized that what I wanted 5 years ago was not the same as what i want now. Call it a cliche' but i feel like rediscovering myself again and hopefully the experience will improve my "shy personality" haha. Is this what they call mid-quarter life crisis? Hmm.


Some pictures of my trip with my family last March:

Had this oriental tuna sashimi for lunch. Lately, I've been destressing over food because work has been so busy this week

I love the cut out design of these shoes, they look vintage-y :)

Would you believe that I picked this dress up at a supermarket? It was such a steal that I went back for it after my culinary class and my classmates proceeded to tease me that I was preparing for a "date". The color has such a calming effect on me that I semiconciously chose it for another busy and stressful day at the office. But then, I make all sorts of excuses to dress up and my day becomes fun when I feel nice in what I wear.



How about you Lovelies? How do you choose what to wear for the day?

Hi everyone! So how was your weekend? It was the perfect weather to just stay at home, eat something hot and lay back in comfy pillows. Snuggled with the dogs when they were afraid of the thunder, watched a dozen movies till I fell asleep and sipped the perfect cup of coffee while watching the rain. And oh, indulged in this teenie yummy cheesecake to cap off the weekend :)

Have a nice week ahead lovelies!
p.s the downside of staying at home is that you get to browse all this online shopping sites. especially net-a-porter and luisaviaroma with their sales. its crazy :)

I'm quite obsessed with this editorial from Vogue Korea. Everything is just perfect! The clothes, the makeup, the location. Oh, if I could only wear something like this everyday. Nevertheless, it gave me an idea on how to pack and revolve my wardrobe for my next vacation. First two pictures are from the Vogue Korea website and you can see the rest of the editorial here.

And this is my take on the whole nautical theme. I don't own much tops but when I saw these on sale, I immediately thought "sailor stripes!" and bought it even if the lady on the register is buying the same top as I am. Now where could I get that fabulous sequined jacket to go with it?

I love windy days. There is something poignant about leaves rustling and trees swaying in the wind. Not to mention how cooler the temperature is. But I do hope no one gets hurt ( as there is a typhoon raging in some parts). Be safe everyone!

P.S I am going to singapore with my bff next month. Can you guys help me by suggesting places to go, restaurants to eat, and shopping places? Any suggestions will be welcome!



Also, I would like to thank the lovely blogger Lydia of Turquoise and Lily for her blog award. From the bottom of my heart, thank you very much!

I actually don't own much violet in my wardrobe but I super love the prints in this dress, I am smitten by it. I think this piece is a keeper in my closet and I can see myself wearing it again and again.


Also, some carnations for everyone! I was pleasantly surprised to see this in the market this morning (it is not a native flower here) so I scooped a bouquet or two, placed them in a tall vase and immediately felt them lighten up the house.

Happy Weekend Lovelies! May you have a good one ;)

Last Saturday, a British friend asked me how was it like to live in the province (I'm based in the province because this is where our family business is). "Is it like the country?" he asked. "Definitely quiet, like the country, yes" I told him. But who doesn't like quiet sometimes, right? There's always the big city to run to on the weekends when I need some urban buzz. And Starbucks :)

So here I am, trying my hand on something vintage. I have this dress for years already and everytime I clean out my closet, I never seem to give it up. There's a quality in the cut and fabric that vintage dresses have and it must have been nice to dress up like this everyday. I wore this for some cake and coffee yesterday, and since it was a holiday, enjoyed a much leisurely break.
Have a great day lovelies!



p.s ( sorry if the photos are blurry, i really didn's see the focus mode of the slr was on manual)
