Why I Don't Like Being Called Skinny

Jan 27, 2014

This is pretty different from what I normally write about. It was something that was recently on my mind and I needed a medium to express my opinions. It's lengthy too!

Our society today has built such an ideal look for women that is constantly being fed to us through the media. I think it can generally be agreed upon that among numerous cultures today, a skinny girl is preferred. I so happen to fall under that category, and it just so happens that I don't like to be reminded that I do.

Where It's Warm, I'm There

Jan 25, 2014

I wanted to do several outfit posts this entire week but every morning, I ended up throwing on a sweater, jeans, and my chunky winter boots. Winter is the season for me to dress simple - comfort and practicality over style to stay warm. After experiencing winter for so many years, you may think that I would have gotten used to it by now. Never have I experienced temperatures close to -30 and below. If it's cold enough to freeze my skin, I'm going to bundle up as much as I can.

Radiant Orchid

Jan 18, 2014

I saw all these blog posts on Pantone's colour of the year and it got me curious on what the buzz was all about. I can confidently say that I absolutely love the colour! Great choice, Pantone.

After looking at the colour for awhile, the shade looked extremely familiar to me and I then realized that my prom dress was in this colour! I'm a little hesitant to post my prom pictures but continue scrolling down this post to view my dress. Well, I might as well share it if this post is all about purple!

Purple IS my favourite colour for the longest time now. I actually don't think the colour suits my skin tone well but it's so pretty!!! Here are a few items that I found in the colour radiant orchid (or close to). I would get everything on my list if I could!

How to Add a Scalloped Hem

Jan 13, 2014

I've been really into doing DIY things lately (especially since I am broke after the Christmas holidays and can't afford to buy things myself). I hope you enjoy this one!

I really have loved this type of hem for the longest time but I don't see it very often among clothing stores. It adds a sweet touch to an outfit, doesn't it? When you can't buy it, then you make it yourself!

Challenges Accepted

Jan 10, 2014

I have officially completed the first week of my second semester! Honestly, my semester seems so relaxing because I have Mondays and Fridays off. Hooray for 4 day weekends!  I think what I'm most looking forward to this semester is not my long weekend but rather that I can sleep in for two extra days. Let's hope that I don't begin to slack off! Challenge 1: still try to treat Mon and Fri as school days this semester. I have so much time now so I was planning on heading to the mall today. I got all dressed up and then being my indecisive self ended up staying at home. Well, here's my outfit!
