Lanterns & Frames

I've been doing some small improvements around the home this past week.

It all started with the frames arrangement in our hallway. You can actually see a peek of the frames here.  Not a great picture, I know.

But, the arrangement was getting a bit boring and bare. So I decided to add on more frames and to change it up a bit.

So, I had some existing frames in blue and an ornate mirror in pink on hand. Since I didn't want to get more Ikea white ones, I decided to just spray-paint them white.

And here they are after the first coat. I have to say, the frames are looking awesome already.

Since I live in a condo, I have to make do with the small space. Would love to have my own work space one day! 

These babies are getting their final coat after this and then they'll be ready for hanging!

On the same night, I also managed to turned two pelita minyak tanah into tealight lantern holders.

So pretty kan? I just love candles, they really do transform your space.

As you can probably see, one lantern dah berkarat dah pun. I got them over a year ago and just chucked them outside on the balcony. But, fret not, I'm gonna spray paint them in pastel hues. Wouldn't that be amah-zing?

Can't wait to see them all done and purtyyy (hopefully!)

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

And look at what I found!

This one! 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'…

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.


Kak S: Who's your designer nanti?

Me: Syaiful Baharim..

Kak S: Oh, Syaiful. Di…

Be Prepared on Your Wedding Day!

So useful, this!

Print this and give a copy to your maid of honour/best friend/sister or whoever that will be close to you on your big day.

Often, brides forget the food and drink bit, but trust me, have some snack handy. Because you WILL be hungry. And don't forget straws! You don't want to ruin your lipstick :p

Okay, everything else is self explanatory.

You're welcome!
