Hallway of Frames

The frames are finally up!

Remember I spray painted the frames white in preparation of this? Yeah, I finally put them up two weeks ago.

I really took my time doing this (almost 3 months!) and it is sooo worth it!

I chose my pictures carefully, thought long and hard about the design of the picture mat and tried and photographed many frames arrangement!

And here they are in our hallway. I couldn't be happier with the results!

In case you're wondering, I didn't drill any holes in the wall. Did that before and felt that it was all a bit too messy.

So this time around, I used 3M tapes for frames and they work like a charm!

And since I'm in a sharing (and chatty) mood, this is how I ensure that I get my frames to be exactly where it should.

I arranged everything that I want on that wall on the floor first. I measured the length and width of the wall and mirrored the measurements on the floor. I then measured the centre frame, the one with the heart-shaped inside, in order to make sure that it will be right in the middle of that wall. And when I get that main frame centered, I simply played around with the other frames and went with the ones that I think look the nicest!

Before I started attaching the frames to the wall, I measured again and made a mark for that main frame.  After that, I just followed the positioning on the floor and stuck each frame one by one.

Simple, isn't it? A lil bit of math and whole lot of gut feelings!

P/S sorry for the crappy photos, I only realised that my phone camera was dirty when my husband pointed out that my photos turned out blurry! All this while, I thought it was because of the lighting! #totalfail

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…


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'…
