I don’t think I’ve said it before but I’m kinda proud to be categorized in the league of the 40+ beauty and fashion bloggers. You would think that I’m embarrassed, given my past inhibitions about my age but the truth is, I’m not. I was just hesitant about revealing the numbers because I didn’t want my blog to come across as age-inclusive. I like to think that what I blog about can inspire women of varied ages plus I really don’t feel that old.
It’s been a while since I was excited about what I wore and it’s all thanks to this new pair of sneakers—the Puma Future Glyde Lite Lo. I haven’t worn sneakers in years and it’s because they’re so flat and they don’t enhance my height. LOL. However, I changed my mind recently and went sneakers hunting. I picked this pair because it goes with my new Marc by Marc Jacobs Preppy Nylon Isa Backpack. I also had approval from my husband who helped me pick this design. So come with me and check out how it fits with my outfit of the day!
Many people tell me they want to have joy in their lives but it seems to elude them. These people seem to think that joy is something that finds them. But instead of waiting for joy to happen, you can choose to live each day with gladness in your heart. Yes you can! Stop agonizing over what you don’t have and begin to be joyful in what you already have. That’s a start! You certainly don’t need to have a perfect life before you can have joy. And if that’s still too difficult, perhaps you can consider wearing one of these handmade fashion accessories to remind you to choose joy.
After almost six months with us, Gracie has grown. Grown a bit too fat to be carried around for long that is. HA. My hubby has been asking me to get her a doggie carrier for months but I’ve not paid heed because I’d thought it’s okay to carry her around if I need to. But after some encounters when we brought her out, I think he’s right that putting her in a bag makes it easier for us to go to places where dogs may be frowned upon. So I finally succumbed and got her a simple dog carrier from Pet Lovers. Not the best looking I guess but it’s functional for our needs.
I’ve always had a certain fascination with Indian fashion, especially in their strong play of colours and masterful applications of embroideries and appliqués. I remember being enchanted by a dress worn by a little girl, so much so I wanted to make one for myself. I don’t know if I’ll ever get down to having one but if I do, I’ll definitely want one with a more contemporary flair. Something similar to some of the collections I’ve spotted from the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) Spring Summer 2013. Like this yellow mid-length dress from Virtues by Viral, Ashish & Vikrant. Totally love how its avant-garde design incorporates the rich Indian crafts and textiles.
