Interview – Thu of Just tututiny

Hi all,

I’m back with another interview.

 http://justtututiny.blogspot.com/

Today I will be interviewing Thu of Just tutiny. Ever since I stumbled upon her blog I have loved her OOTD and she is informative with the way she words each piece and each trend she wears πŸ™‚

So onto the questions πŸ™‚

1. Tell us what your blog is about and what inspired you to start blogging?

My blog is about my day-to-day personal style and my thought process behind choosing each outfit. I love researching about trends and use my blog to share my findings with my readers and blog friends.
 http://justtututiny.blogspot.com/

My inspiration came from fellow bloggers of course and also because I wanted to have an outlet outside from work, family and school so that I can connect with fashion forward individuals.

2. How do you choose what you blog about?

The focus of my blog is usually on fashion trends and deals & steals. So depending upon what is in style and on sale in a particular season is what I usually blog about.

3. Your blog has a lot of OOTDs which are great inspirations for people. What is your favourite blog to read? Or which blog makes you inspired?

Gosh, there is so many to name, and it obviously changes on a day to day basis because I get new readers that gives me great inspirations and ideas all the time πŸ™‚ If I had to choose one I would have to say Cupcakes and Cashmere – her website was my very first blog read and I was hooked since then.

(P.s I just checked out this blogger πŸ™‚ and she has great style :))

4. What is your favourite eye palette?

The only one that I use is Stila in moonlight.

5. Makeup, shoes, nail polish or bags?

Shoes!

6. I have to throw in a random question – what is the scariest thing you have done?

Skiing down Black Diamond, which happens to be the biggest mountain at that particular ski place that we went. It was my very first time on the slopes too, I almost broke my neck!

(Whoa that’s pretty game! haha)

7. What’s your favourite destination to visit?

Toronto – for the exotic fruits that are imported from Thailand.

8. What is on your latest wish/lust list?

A sequin clutch

9. What advice do you give new bloggers who are starting out their own blogs?

Have fun with it. Write about anything you want to and the readers will come. You also don’t have to blog everyday to have a successful blog but just make sure that when you do that you reciprocate and support other bloggers that visit your site.

(I like this advice actually πŸ™‚ Support other bloggers!)

10. Lastly, tell us something about yourself that most people wouldn’t know?

Well, most people don’t know this but I am a very busy bee: I work full time, attend law school at night, have 2 kids and now am a blogger. Many think I am crazy but I love what I do and will continue to do it because I have made some great blog friends and hope to continue these friendship =)

{Thu with her cute little daughter – can’t get enough of her}

Wow this girl has one busy schedule and still manages to maintain her blog! I definitely give her props for that! Hope you enjoyed reading the interview πŸ™‚ Oh and her daughter is so cute! She gets featured on her blog with a lot of style and flair πŸ™‚ She is going to be one stylish kid πŸ™‚

Anyone else who would like to be interviewed – let me know πŸ™‚

Boxing day sales

Okay if you have read my previous post, I said I wouldn’t be attending boxing day sales. Okay so I lied.. well I got tempted and failed .. I woke up super early on Boxing day and then went online to see what time shops were opening! Myer was opening at 6.45am and David Jones at 7am so since I was already up I though to myself “What the heck – lets see what Boxing day sales are like” haha

I drove there and got there in time – Myer was already opened so I browsed through. I looked at different dresses but didn’t end up getting any. As I walked around the shopping mall I waited for different shops to open.

Here are some of the items I picked up :

Β For my bro – just a simple top and he loves Tokyo

Β  For my sis – she loves baking!

Β For moi πŸ™‚ Some cute inexpensive earrings

For those who did attend BoxingΒ Day sales – what did you pick up? Β 

Holidays

Hi all,

Hopefully you are enjoying your holidays and going somewhere nice and warm and sunny.
This is what it currently looks like in Melb –

Well that’s what I had to encounter last night driving through that storm!

Today is Boxing day! This is where the sales go crazy and shops open at 5am! I will not be joining them this year. Well maybe I will later on in the day but I will not be lining up in this weather to get the sales. I might have to opt to online boxing day sales hehe.

Will you be attending the sales? or opting for online?

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

Bottled stars

Hello all,
It’s officially holidays here!! Woo hoo πŸ™‚ So this is a gift idea πŸ˜‰ May take a little while but I think it’s very cute πŸ™‚ I got gifted one ages ago. It’s a jar of bottled stars πŸ™‚

What you will need:

Empty glass bottle

Long paper strips

Stickers for decoration

Patience πŸ™‚

Method:

1. Get long strips of paper at about 1cm width and about 20-30cm long. (You can actually use old wrapping paper and cut into strips or use any colored paper)

2.Β MakeΒ a flat knot at the end to start the star. Should look something like this.

3. Proceed toΒ fold the paper around the edges of the the hexagon shape. It should go naturally and cover the whole shape.

4. With that last piece of paper – tuck it into one of the edges.

5. Time to make the star – pinch the corners together

Β =

6. Do that with all corners to make the star.

7. Put the stars in a jar and decorate the jar! Hey presto – you have a cute decorative gift πŸ™‚

Let me know if you give this a go πŸ™‚ Happy holidays everyone!! πŸ™‚

 

Holiday nails

Just a quick NOTD. I have been loving glitter on the nails lately. Maybe because its the holiday season! I can’t wait for holidays πŸ™‚ No one can focus at work πŸ™‚

I used Sally Hansen’s crackle polish in silver as the base coat and topped it with Wet n wild sparkly nail polish and then topped that with konad prints in white stars.

Just trying to shop at the shopping centre is chaos here! Everyone doing last minute shopping and the queues are ridiculous! Plus shopping hours have extended to 9 and 10pm!

Soon it will be Boxing Day sales! Will anyone brace that day’s chaos and try to get some bargains??
