Power Plate

Hola!

Sorry I've been so hopeless at updating.

Since my last post, I have made some progress! *pats back*

Bought myself a pair of running/walking/training shoes. I got the Skechers Shape-Ups Liv. And it's ohsem. That spring-y sole makes walking and running a bit more comfortable. It does need some getting use to - that spring-y sole actually works your calf muscles. The first few days of wearing them, I felt some tightness on my bottom and calf, but now they are just so comfy.

So, now that I've got my shoes, I ought to be working out more right? And I have! *beams*

I've enrolled myself into a powerplate class! I go three times a week and ohmygod, I love it! One session is only for 30 minutes but because you're doing squats and lunges on the vibration plate, you'll be panting and sweating 10 minutes into it. *My stamina is na-da these days* Not to forget, you'll be swearing during the session.

"Why do you do this to yourself?" "Kalau teruk macam ni, biar je la gemok, asal happy" "Remember this pain - and stop stuffing your face!"

After my first proper session, I couldn't walk, go up and down the stairs, get up and down from sitting position without looking like a granny. Mom commented, "Ini lagi teruk dari beranak ni!" =___=

But, I just love the feeling after a workout. I dont think I have lost weight or inches yet, but I feel tight all over. You know what I mean? The flabby bits dont feel too wobbly. Haha.

Oh well, losing weight is painful. I hope I get this in my head the next time I reach for that chocolate!

Fashion Styles: Blouse

If you have been following me on this blog, you’d probably know that I’m such a girly girl. I just love being a girl. Seriously, what’s not to love? We have the best in fashion. Fashion is dedicated to us, women! From hair bands and clips to shoes and stockings, and everything in between.
I had many fashion phases growing up. The “Clueless” inspired fashion; checkered pants, preppy blouses and small furry backpacks, short dresses with platforms ala Baby Spice and so much more. But, as I grow older, I stuck to a classic and simple style. My husband loves it when I’m dressed in a simple skinny jeans/pants and blouse. And that has been my staple since I got married. I admit – I would love to be more adventurous in my styles (like in my younger days) but I don’t think my husband can tolerate that. Lol.
Over the years of experimenting, I have learned what’s good on me and what’s not, what I like and what I dislike. I prefer blouses; smart casual mostly to cotton tshirts. After turning 3…

Hello Rizman Ruzaini, Bye Bye Syaiful Baharim!

Shocking kan? After my last post on Syaiful Baharim.

So what happened?

Ok, yesterday evening me and mom went to Jakel to get the lace. Sampai je Jakel, pegi la kat tingat kain exclusive tu, focus hanya untuk mencari lace. I wanted a simple, CHEAP, non-beaded lace. Any kind, asalkan cantik. The SA who helped us, who happens to be the owner and Mom's friend, mestilah tunjuk yang beaded Solstiss je. Without a doubt, Solstiss lace IS exquisite. Memang tengok muka automatically berseri-seri, bibir tersenyum-senyum. But, boy, the price! MasyaAllah..!

I was actually quite good; I actually said NO because the laces that she showed me are all very expensive, jenis ribu2 PER METRE! And I was looking to buy 4 metres of lace! So I said to Kak S (the owner), I prefer the simpler one, no beads, tak payah la Solstiss2 ni. So, she showed me some, plain, simple and sweet, I didnt have a problem getting just that.

Then.....

Kak S: Who's your designer nanti?

Me: Syaiful Baharim..

Kak S: Oh, Syaiful. Di…

Bollywood-Style

Inspired by my friend's wedding saree, I went searching for this beautiful material.

And look at what I found!

This one just.takes.my.breath.away.! It's white and heavily beaded, perfect for a simple baju kurung. I would probably use this for my akad nikah. That is if I had another chance of doing my wedding all over again :p



This light brown+gold-ish sheer saree screams GLAMOROUS! Imagine that for your reception dress, with some gold detailing, you can be one glamorous bride! *love*



I love this grey beaded saree as well. Very very chic! And the best thing about grey? It matches a lot of other colours to bring out different moods.



Like if you pair it with this pink saree for your bridemaids/entourage/family members, you'd achieve a very chic but sweet look.



Just look at that detailing at the bottom! That's just grand!! I would probably use this for my tunang. Oh, or baju raya also nice! Hmmmm...*thinking*



The last two sarees would be nice either for an engagement do'…
