So of course I had to start the year with eating! Especially one of my most favourite cuisines and dishes : Malaysian!

Laksa

Nasi Lemak

And I thought this was the cutest store display!

New years resolutions!

1. Continually blogging – as I enjoy it as a medium to display my life in pictures and remember the good times πŸ™‚ Kinda therapeutic too!

2. Start running again! That nike app on my phone isn’t being used as frequently as I would like

3. Travel more!! I will start the year off in Indonesia from next week onwards so I’m looking forward to that πŸ™‚

What are your new year’s resolutions? Do you think there is a point to make resolutions?Β

Jewellery haul

Just went shopping and picked up some great jewellery pieces. I’m already in love with this peacock ring and have been wearing it often πŸ™‚ It actually goes well with my minty polish πŸ™‚

I also picked up 2 necklaces. One is blue and green with different charms on it and the other is a little more feminine with charms on it too.

I also picked up this bangle collection with a heart, bird and pearl charms. The label said Antique Rose. It actually does look quite vintage and feminine. I can see it paired with a feminine dress.

Happy Tuesday to you all and hope that yourΒ long weekend break has given you the motivation to work harder πŸ™‚ Hehe at least its aΒ short week!

Market shopping

Hi all,

I don’t know about you? But I love going to the markets and searching for new treasures. This weekend I was able to go to one of the biggest markets we have in our area. It was extra hot today though so people were selling things fast to get out of the sun!

Β 

I picked up these earrings πŸ™‚

and also the last Harry Potter book – The Deathly Hallows. I have read it before but a long time ago and I’m slowly getting the whole set. Basically brand new – $3 can’t go wrong πŸ™‚

Happy weekend everyone! Any good markets in your area? Do you go? Any good finds?

NOTD – Minted

Hi all,

It’s nearly Friday πŸ™‚ At the moment my NOTD is by Sally Hansen – Minted. I bought this over in the US when I went to CVS. Today I’m wearing my shell bracelet – gifted from a friend and this peach colored bead bracelet. I think the colors go really well with each other. Last of all is my heart necklace! I actually bought this from a market and has been a favourite casual necklace for a while! This weekend is Chinese new year! Can’t wait to gorge down food!

Also I just learnt how to make this beaded bracelet from Carrie. The tutorial is from here. It was quite easy to make and fun πŸ™‚

I adjusted the way I did it because I didn’t have the same materials. I used glass beads which were bigger than the size 8 seeded beads and I used wire instead of waxen linen cord πŸ™‚

Overall I’m happy with my home made bracelet and layered with other pieces I think it will go well as an added accessory to my collection πŸ™‚

Will you try it out? Let me know πŸ™‚
