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!)

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.


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!
