Bags and bunny

Hi all,

We had a scorcher today. The hottest day ever in November!! 40 degrees for a spring day! Crazy! It was spent inside air conditioned building and drinking bubble tea 🙂

My bunny Sashimi had a baby bunny 🙂 Aww love spring!


We also had a crazy one day sale in the city and it was crazy!! I think it could be even equivalent to Black Friday shopping by US standards hehe


Hope you are having a happy Thursday 🙂

Any ideas for names for our new addition to the family?

Blue dress

Hi all,

Hope you had a lovely weekend. Mine was spent gorging on bbq food at my friend’s housewarming. The view was beautiful and the weather was beautiful too.

I tried on this blue dress and discovered that this color really suits my skin tone. After shopping for a while now, I notice there are specific colors that work for my skin tone and others that don’t. I think shades of purple and blue really work for tanner skin tones where as browns and some pinks do not work that well.

Have you thought about what colors suit your skin tones?

Paparich and mustard

Hi all,

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you who are in US and Canada 🙂

We don’t have the pleasure of that holiday down here but that doesn’t mean we can’t be thankful for what we have 🙂 It’s good to reflect on what we are thankful for – keeps us in perspective with our life 🙂

So I’m thankful for my friends and family who love and care for me so much. I’m thankful for being able to eat this delicious bowl of curry laksa from Paparich.

I’m thankful for a stable job so that I’m able to purchase clothes like this mustard dress 🙂

and be able to do my nails in this mint and dark green color.

I’m thankful for life in general and that I don’t have to struggle with my life where others may have to. So never take anything for granted in your life.

Leopard and tea

Hi all,

Today it was a lovely day and I got to spring out this leopard sleeveless top and pair it with my jeans for a casual Friday look.

I have been seeing a lot of hype over Breaking Dawn Part 2 but I can’t stand it.. Edward Cullen just doesn’t do it for me and I can’t stand Kristen’s acting. On another note I finally finished reading the 3rd Hunger Games book. Progressing from the 1st book – it was exactly like the movie. The 2nd book was really hard to get into until you got half way and the 3rd book was not like the first two at all. With risk of giving away spoilers I will let you decide whether you liked the books yourself 🙂 If you like war books – you will appreciate the 3rd book 🙂

I will leave you with some instagram pics 🙂

The view outside right now 🙂

This is what’s in my bag

And I love green tea with mochi! (Japanese sticky rice sweet)

Hello Weekend 🙂 Do you have any plans?


Green flowers

Hi all,

I got this cute green and black dress on sale. 50 percent off from a place called Factorie.

I didn’t get to take a good picture of it on a whole but in future I’m sure there will be more wear from this dress 🙂

Hope you’re having a great Tuesday! Weather is picking up here but so is the hayfever 😦
