FALL INs


i personally think that, whether consciously or not, everybody follows fashion. and seriously, there's nothing wrong about loving fashion at all. i dont understand why there are people who just wont admit to it. anyways, got Neiman's newsletter last week, which included a link to their new catalogue. i screen capped a few of my favorite trends, pictures, accessories to share with you all...have a look:

looks like this trend won't be dying any time soon! and it's perfect this way because i LOVE leopard prints. yay!
leggings can look frumpy and sloppy, but when worn right, it's the perfect piece that can accomodate pretty much anything. i'm considering zippered leggings for this fall, but still haven't found the perfect pair yet.
LBDs are always in. it's a sure bet. my footballer dress from a few posts ago's perfect then. it combines the strong shoulder (which is very much still the craze) and it's black! woohoo!
but not just any motorcycle jackets. a touch of femininity is key! also, it should be worn with softer pieces, which i find more interesting then the head to toe biker look.


gorgeous dress, beautiful shoes and stunning picture in general.
i just liked this picture a lot. =]
clothes are either super loose or very close to the silhouette. strong shoulders, see?
classic with a twist
leoparddd =D
i want these engineer boots! they look so nice


Kimberly Ovitz "Martin" dress
the back detail reminds me of that Club Monaco dress i tried on some time ago. beautiful!


to end it nicely,



short post, sorry!

DIY

isn't this picture too pretty? i see this every single morning before going to the office, and i'm still in awe every time.

was flipping through september issue of In Style magazine at work and i just had to snap and share with you guys.
isn't this headband too cute? and instead of paying a hundred bucks for it, i'm sure we can make one just like that with a plain satin headband and a loose zipper you can buy at any fabric store. i will definitely try this out and post a tutorial on how to. please look forward to it =]
this is cute too. and totally do-able.
for those who like more bling, here's another barette alternative
this one looks so cool! i dont know if i have the style to pull it off. and the leather puncher seems hard to find. i've never seen fabric store selling those. if i can find the puncher, i'll try this one out as well. =]

Random:

as you might've noticed, i like taking pictures of my boyfriend driving. he looks so handsome lol! sound totally crazy over him huh! >_<"
Hi!
Photobooth is so practical! =D

Blow it!

last week was a longgg and strenuous work week. it seemed like it would never end...but fortunately for me, it did! phewww....my fridays now consists of visiting my grandparents, do grocery with them, have dinner with them and just hang out. it's quite fun to see them as they're always so cheerful and have tons of things to tell me. after leaving their house, we went straight to TD's house for a game night (or what was left of the night). while guys were slamming their fingers for a little WWE, us girls played Guessture. after 1 year of research, Maya finally found her game!!! it was in fact removed from the shelves for some major revamping. anyways, we had tons fo fun playing. at first we tried the Easy cards...but the more we played, the better we got. at the end, we nearly finished the Difficult cards as well. playing hard = hungry! went to Julep for some more relaxing time. damn...we're always there...

SATURDAY: had tons of errands planned, it was a little hectic. went to the currency exchange bureau in chinatown for some HKD and while at it, me & bb went for some dim sum at Kam Fung. not a good idea when you're only 2 people. we got full so fast. couldn't enjoy the food as much as i wished. while we're there, why not go for a trim? my hair was so long and the ends we're splitting and my bangs were a little too long. we dropped by our usual spot and i got my hair done. arghhh i regret it so much now, it feels like a lot shorter than what i initially wanted. =[ boohoo ok so i'm a little drama queen. so what! hehe met up with our little crew for some chinese fast food downtown. 
our boys
TD & Sim
bb's so focused on his shanghai noodles
yummm

my mountain of a Pad Thai. lol i could only eat 1/3 of it. i should've taken a side view picture of the dish.
Maya & Bella had mountain dishes too haha.

later that night, Maya had the urge for some crepes and requested for some Rolopan (3723A St-Laurent, corner Des Pins). us girls always get what we want in terms of food. lol and so we went. 
displays at Rolopan remind me of japanese restaurant displays. realistic and so colorful.

last week, my Skinomi shield arrived in the mail

i thought it was gonna be hard to apply but it turned out to be the easiest thing everrr. spray both side of the shield and just place it on your phone. you can move it around still and readjust it all you want as long as it's still wet. anyways, i'm really happy with the product.. it helped me get rid of that bulky hard cover i had to use to protect my phone. now with the new shield, i can poke it with my keys or scratch it with my nails all i want. it wont leave even a tiny mark. awesomeness! =]

thats all for today. i think my post is already too long, sorry to bore you all my ramblings.
