Me and Daddy
The thing about young parents is people often mistaken your father as your boyfriend, or maybe that just even more paramount in countries like HongKong to have young girlfriends? anyways just a tad weird!

sequins BEBE dress
B2 black heels
CostaBlanca Chain belt
Izzue knit Circle Scarff

J'adore L'or

I spotted this beautiful gold fabric (and it's stretchy!) on sale and I just KNEW it's fate.
it's meant for me to make this number !
I made a tiny change after; slimmed down the sleeves
Inspired by the Marc Jacob's Gold dress that Serena Van Der Woodsen wore.

here's a pic of her posing for vanity.
a little too glam to not share!

ESSO & DIOR


I Died a LITTLE when I saw those skirts in LOULOU's november issue.
I HAD to make them.
$11/half metre
I santa-fied my new jacket, a little :)
what do you think?
Last but not least. My new gold fishies!
They're my Christmas present from my boyfriend (along with food, tank and etc.)
We've always had an inside joke that I'm his fish (he loves fishing) and that he caught me.
before I opened the big wrapped present,
he said " if you can guess it, which I know you won't, I'll buy you another present"
and low and behold i blurted out FISH TANK?
hehehe.

oh ya and I got the present early because I'm leaving for HONGKONG (again) soon time!
for my uncles wedding:]

for those whose been following my blog for a while, y'all know I used to have a huge fetish for fruit smoothies in the morning. Now, I have an obsession with juicing the following:
Most asian people know bittermelon is one of the most disgusting tasting vegetable alive; but it's SOOOOOO good for you! Benefits? Detoxification, good for your skin, helps you lose weight, and generally better for you in all aspects of health!
so.

I am

TOTALLY

IN
LOVE

with Burlesque.

Did I mention I totally forgot it was Christina Aguilera?! She played the character "Ali" who was so innocent and beautiful and all I could think of is didn't Christina have a baby and have pierced lips nose . . .

But I have a new found respect for her.
her "mutant lungs" didn't come from no where, "it's dedication".

p.s. Harry Potter wasn't that bad. I totally expected some really corny fantasy type of thing. But the graphics was good... I even wore my pajamas to the theatre incase I'd fall asleep which I DID NOT ! Thanks boyfriend for dragging me along.

so the metre of studs is 66% off at fabricland. HAD to buy it.
Since I'm always making dresses, thought I'd make a top for a change.

  1. I simply used a tank top I had and traced it on my silky mustard yellow fabric
  2. cut it out
  3. then sewed on by hand the studs fabric around the neckline!
just felt a little festive here. hehe.

I was browsing on polyvore and I found a similar top at 995 dollars!

lets play house.

So almost seven months with THE boyfriend,
we have already been talking about our future together; which we've come to agreement that due to our alcoholic behaviours induced by society's elephantine value in martinis and well- alcohol in general, home bar furniture is a must. I suggested a full time bartender.
we also agreed we'll spend much time in the kitchen
we're both such foodies but.
WITH OPPOSITE taste buds! So we're gonna have two fridges.
He can't stand my vegetable and cakes and cookies and I can't stand his meat and Chinese food haha.

okay I've been kinda going crazy with DIYs, so here's another:)
enjoy!

You will need:
  1. use scissors to cut out a shape of your choice on bristol board to create a stencil (or if you have a stencil you like already just ignore this step.)
  2. squeeze out acrylic paint (retarder is optional but it keeps paint from drying as fast) of any colour
  3. REMEMBER to put bristol board inside your tights so the paint don't go through -as you see I obviously forgot and got PAINT stain on my bed sheet, my friends wouldn't believe it was just WHITE PAINT STAIN-.-
  4. Your ready to use your stencil and paint wherever you desire the shape to be
  5. be patient and let it dry before turning over to complete the back side.
this is a project for the patient minds, took so LONG!
