Jungle Everywhere...

I haven’t been able to put a post lately since I’ve been traveling and now I’m finally here in the HOT city of Bangkok.  All I have to say is I LOVE IT! Being here with my family, shopping till my feet hurt, eating spicy thai food and wearing dresses everyday… life is just AWESOME for me at the moment. I love the weather here even though its extremely hot and humid.. its way way (x1000) better than Hobart so you won’t hear me complain about the weather for awhile now :)

I’ve been here for few days now and I’m enjoying every moment of it. I’m leaving for home day after, can’t wait. I just hope the weather is warm and sunny there too (fingers crossed)!

So today, just like yesterday and day before and the day before that, we went shopping. That’s all we do out here. Its funny because I’ve been traveling to Bangkok every since I can remember and its practically my second home but if you ask me which places to visit in Thailand, I wouldn’t know. The only places I’ve been to are the shopping centers/malls.

A for Awesome, B for Boots and C for Clutch!

Since I'll be traveling back home in a couple of days (very excited), I had to do some shopping for my family so yesterday was a perfect day for that. It wasn't really cold nor was it really hot.. it was just PERFECT, just the way I like it. 
Before I left I told myself that today was just meant for my family and had planned not to enter any of my usual stores just so I don't get attracted. But guess what? I did end up going to all the stores and buying atleast one item from each store. 

dammit...mission failed!

Don't forget to ENTER HERE for my GIVEAWAY for an awesome Valorie clutch (similar to above) and Glamour t-shirt!

These boots were made for buying..

Yesterday, I finally got my Kelsi Dagger knee-high boots that I had ordered a week ago. It came in this really nice silver box. This is one shoe that I had to really think about because I already own a knee-high boots but with no heels. And when I'm in Uni, I prefer flats over heels becuase the university I go to is not ideal for heels unless you drive there, then you don't have to walk up the cliff (bit exaggerated). The boot was for $200 but I got this boots on sale for just $85, isn't that awesome? This was the other dilemma, it was cheap and in my size so I couldn't resist not buying it.
It was meant to be!
Now I cannot wait to wear it!

I also got the Adorable Blog Award from Zahra and Sophie from Le Tacchettine. This is my second award and I'm very excited since its just been a month since I first started blogging. And its an honor to get two awards :)

first ever GIVEAWAY!

I had to wake up early today around 8am.. yes! I know its not that early for some of you but it is for me. My day usually starts at 10am or sometimes later. I'm not a morning person, that's why I usually pick evening classes so I can sleep as much as I want.
So this morning when I woke up, it was really cold and gloomy outside but I had to go to the library to find some books for my paper that's due soon. All the books I needed was checked out by someone else which meant I woke up early for no reason. So my morning kinda sucked but that didn't last very long becuase when I got home, I saw a package for me from Jessica Buurman from or She sent me these really awesome Valorie clutches and cute Glamour t-shirts to help me with my GIVEAWAY. I just couldn't resist so I had HAD to try it on :)

Weee-bit of SunShine

After days of continuous rain, the SUN decided to come out today, and along with it some SHINE. I felt like I have emerged from a cocoon of cozy robes and blankets to my cute blue dress. 

 It wasn't really warm as you might think but it was relatively warm.. I know you probably think I complain about the weather a wee bit much but you have no idea how crappy the weather in Hobart is. 17 degree Celsius on a good day is not a very good day. 25 degrees would have been nice but with a weekly average of 12 degrees, 17 is HEAVEN.

I love this place, its small and perfect (reminds me of back home) but the weather just makes me regret coming here in the first place. Every time I see the weather forecast on the news, it takes me back when I was deciding where to go for my uni. 
Should have looked at the weather forecast, or even the globe for that matter. Tassie is pretty close to Antarctica and that would have been a big hint on the weather. (LIGHT BULB)

Porcelain Skin, Candy Lips and Bubblegum tongue…

 The pictures are from W Magazine March 2011 Issue. In the above picture, she is wearing Chanel’s silk tulle organza coat with feather collar and sleeves; Eres’s silk bra.

I know this is a little late but I want to rant about my obsession with Mila Kunis. I have always thought she was cute in the 70s show but after watching the Black Swan a few weeks back... 
she was so darn sexy SEX-SAY!

The fact that she is on almost every magazine cover shows that the whole world is in love with her. I thought the her role in the movie was perfect and no one could have done a better job. Maybe Brad Pitt could have becuase he is awesome AWESOME. This guy can be anything actually- a Greek guy with long hair, a Nazi hunting American with a funny accent, and I am sure he could have pulled off being the Black Swan.
Anyways, back to Mila. She's the type of girl that makes you want to change your sexual preference. 


When I think of her, Bruno Mars songs comes to mind.

Candy Nails

Its finally been one month since I first started this blog and I want to take this time to thank all you beautiful ladies who are kind enough to follow me. I can't believe I have over 100 followers and it is definitely more than what I expected to have.

Thank you for all the sweet comments.
I'm looking forward to writing more posts and reading yours as well.

Since I have a big HUGE paper due in 2 weeks time, I've been stuck in my room in front of my laptop every day from morning to night. And the weather is making it worse since its been pouring continuously and freezing cold which makes me feel like jumping back to bed. 

Taking a break from my work, I got a chance to paint my nails which took seriously really long. The right hand was the worse because I got the nail polish all over my fingers. My left hand just couldn't stop shaking. Its not all great but these are the only colors I have so tried to make the best of it :)  

P.S: I'm planning to have a GIVEAWAY soon. 

P.S.S: I just started a Facebook Page so please "Like" it if you like it... :)

Silver hearts!

So the reason for my late post is that lately the weather here at Hobart has just been horrible. I absolutely hate the winter weather here becuase its unpredictable even when you look at the weather forecast before leaving the house. So lately, its been either raining or its been really really windy... and when i say windy, I mean ice-cold wind. Every time I get out of bed, I feel like jumping back in but I couldn't since I had to go for my classes. Anyway, this is what I wore yesterday. I was warm upper body but my legs seriously froze from the damn wind :)

Mother's Day Special


 The picture above is of the two most important people in my life - my baby sister and my beautiful mom. And since tomorrow is Mother's Day, I've decided to dedicate this post to her. My mom has given up so much for us and this is one of the few ways that I can show my appreciation. 
No matter how much I write it will never express how much she means to me and how much I love her.

It might seem a bit off topic from my other blogs but it is indeed most relevent. My mom is the one who has inspired me to "dress nice". She has always encouraged me to pursue what I love and enjoy, and knowing that I love fashoin, she has always been supportive. I do the majority of my shopping with my mom and we can pretty much walk the whole day from one mall to another.

"A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take."
- Cardinal Mermillod

Have you made any special plans for Mother's Day?
