Mesh

I don't usually wear white, but my younger sis gave me this top and this is the first time I got the chance to wear it. I quite like it!

This was what I was wearing in the vlog I just posted previously:)


Hang out with us! (Video alert)

The last time I've posted a vlog here was during our Florida trip in 2017, so I thought I'd post another one. This is a day-in-the-life, recorded on Sunday, which is usually a family day for us:)

Hope you like it:)

Inspiration: James Jacques Joseph Tissot

Image
I first discovered Tissot (1836-1902) when I saw his etchings at the AGO during the late 90's (I think) and instantly fell in love with his work. It's one of those "Holy Cow! This is just too amazing" moments for me, you know?

The romantic in me also was really enamoured by love story between him and and his muse Kathleen Newton, an Irish divorcée. (You can read more about it here).

Unfortunately, I don't hear much about James Tissot's works these days, so I thought I'd feature him here, as his work is one of the reasons I became interested in fine arts (aside from Van Gogh). To this day, I still look at his drawings and paintings for inspiration...for what is possible.

Do you have a favourite artist?

It's gotten a bit warm-ish that I can finally wear this jacket that I got for a steal...yay! This is my new fave because orange.





March Break 2019 (Picture Heavy)

Image
I can't believe it's the last day of spring break, you guys! Wut?!?!?

Anyhoo, just thought I'd share some of the shenanigans we've been up to, including our usual Great Wolf Lodge trip.













Hanging out with my mum and younger sis


Watching Captain Marvel


Are any of you on vacay too? Have you seen Captain Marvel? Thoughts? :D

As of late...some phone pics

Image
Just thought I'd share some pics from my phone. I sometimes like sharing these as these shots really serve as an honest visual journal:)

1) Eating at Jollibee

2) Art journaling
 3) Being sick and staying home:(
 4) Visiting our fave aquarium store (Big Al's)
 5) Reading up on Basquiat

What have you been up to?

Obsession #47

Current stuff I would like to have:)
(The clothes are actually more of a sewing/knitting inspiration...outfits I would like to make soon and add to my closet.)




New in...when it feels like winter will never end

Image
It feels like the cold weather will be here longer than usual, so why not a bright jacket to "brighten" up the day, eh?


This black jacket was one I got during Boxing Day, but frankly, it's not as warm as my other jackets, so I wait patiently when I can wear it. Soon, I hope.
What are your new purchases?

You should really pay attention.

Soooo....when I took these pics, they looked ok to me. Fast forward a few days later when it was time to edit and upload them here, I then noticed that my sweater was partly riding up on the chest area. I thought...should I even bother?

 I'm still posting them here because I really love this sweater:P And honestly, I will never be one of those fashion bloggers who are always well-dressed and put-together. I'm ok with that.
