NOTD: Sonia Kashuk

Image
Love this colour for fall/winter....
This is the first Sonia Kashuk polish I've worn, and I like it. You just need one coat with this colour!

Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday. Thoughts and prayers to those affected by Hurricane Sandy....

In red

Such a crazy weather we're having over here lately! Anyhoo, just thought I'd bust out this coat for a pop of colour. (And look....with the green background, I'm ready for Christmas!)


Hope you are all having a great Sunday, wherever you are:) Mwah!
P.S. To those who are in the path of Hurricane Sandy, please stay safe. Thoughts and prayers to you all.

A little bit grungy

Image
Just take me to Seattle and play some Nirvana!

(I should note that I was actually in my teens when grunge was big, and never really knew what the whole thing was about.)



Have a great Friday, everyone, and may you all have a fab weekend:)

Currently Loving #6

Image
The last time I've done this was in August, so I thought I'd share some of the stuff I've been loving lately. Mind you, some of these items are ones I've loved for awhile:)

1) I went from the first-generation iPhone 3G to this, so I was totally blown away. Not only is the OS awesome, I also now have access to LTE, which means lighting fast connection. Woohoo!
2) JK Rowling's The Casual Vacancy and Sylvain Reynard's Gabriel series are books I highly recommend. 

I wholeheartedly agree with JK Rowling when she (jokingly) said about her book, "But I would have nothing to say to the person who didn’t cry at the end of this book. Nothing."The ending just tore me apart. 

If you loved Dante's The Divine Comedy, the Gabriel series is definitely for you. Not only are the books well-written , the theme is all about forgiveness and second chances, and really, I think we can all relate to that. The first book is also set in my hometown! How cool is that!
P.S. I lo…

This hole in my heart that goes all the way to China!

I bought this jacket awhile back, and finally wore it for the first time. It's faux leather, but iz soooooo nize!!! Gotta love some perforation...for ventilation, of course!

PS You get a prize if you guess what song the title came from:P




Here's to a great start to the week, y'all:)

Splash

Just another basic outfit, but I think the colour of the jacket makes it less blah...right?... Right?



Have a great colourful weekend, everyone:) Don't party too hard:P

Obsession #17 and Thursday Inspiration

Image
Can't get enough studs, ladies and gents! These just look weird and dangerous...perfect:P


Jeffrey Campbell Stud-Back Edea Wedge-Sneaker

I would also like share an outfit Cara Delevingne wore that I really loved as soon as I saw it: Have a great Thursday, everyone:)

Blinged out

Image
My motto in life: When in doubt, wear something with studs! Right? Just brightens up the day a little bit....




Do you guys like to wear  studs for everyday wear, or do you think it's too much?

Have a Happy Tuesday, y'all:)

Red and black

Image
The title reminds me of the Red and Black song from the musical Les Miserables sung by the Enjolras character:
Red - the blood of angry men!
Black - the dark of ages past!
Red - a world about to dawn!
Black - the night that ends at last!



Speaking of Les Miserables, are you guys looking forward to the movie as much as I am? They recorded the songs live while filming! How awesome is that!




"They don't like my jeans. They don't get my hair."

Image
Don't tell anyone, but I stole the title from Pink's song "F***in Perfect". I love this part: Done looking for the critics, cause they’re everywhere
They don’t like my jeans, they don’t get my hair
Exchange ourselves, and we do it all the time
Why do we do that? Why do I do that?



If there's one message I would like to impart to my kids, it's not to care what others think and do what makes them happy.

Happy Friday, everyone!

Change of pace

Image
I don't normally wear too many dresses and skirts on this blog, even though I do like them. I thought I'd wear something different today though, just to give you guys (and my jeans) a break:P


With the length of this skirt, I would normally wear heeled shoes, but alas, comfort won over style.

What is your preference- dresses, skirts or pants- for everyday?

Happy Turkey Day

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canucks!

5 Things I'm Grateful For (not just for today but everyday):
1) My family
2) My faith
3) Books
4) Music
5) Internet :)
Really....being able to wake up everyday is a blessing:) There's so much in this world to be thankful for, and we must not take them for granted. (Admittedly, I forget too sometimes....)

Thanksgiving also means eating a lot, and here's my perfect "eating" outfit...the top is so loose you can eat as much as you want! Bwahaha!


Have a great Monday, everyone:)

This is how we do it!

Image
Just thought I'd show you all how the "photo shoot" usually happens around here, from beginning to the final shot. The shots are usually done with the camera set on a ten-second timer, and you know what I found out? A lot can happen in ten seconds!





The final edit:
Sigh...such is the exciting life I lead. Trying to avoid getting hurt by a toddler is a struggle everyday!

Obsession #16

Image
Oh Mulberry, why do you have to make all these pretty little things?

all images from www.facebook.com/Mulberry


I'd be happy with owning just one of these...sigh....

What are you guys currently obsessing over?

Grin and bear it!

Image
I don't why I always have this smile on my face when I take the blog pics. Am I just too happy, or perhaps, I'm unknowingly trying to audition for a teeth commercial?




Happy Tuesday, everyone:)
