I finally got round to acquiring a wraparound watch, after a prolonged procrastination. Okay, it was on sale at Shopbop and I thought, well, it goes pretty well with the color of the bag I was getting. So into the shopping cart the La Mer Simple Wrap Watch was added and it arrived three days later, fitting both my bag and my wrist very well. Sweet.
Just before writing this post, I weighed myself—a whopping 51.6kg! That’s an increase of 6kg in a space of a few months! Oh grief! I no longer can slip on my jeans but instead, I have to literally jump into them. And the belt, which I used to put on to tighten the pair of jeans to my waist, is now history. *sigh* I’ve been telling myself that I need to shave some of those kilos off my butt and I need to do so fast but all the time, not controlling what I put in my mouth! So here’s a random post to show you what I’ve been feeding on.
I haven’t been shopping at Etsy for a couple of months. As a matter of fact, I haven’t even visited the site for awhile. But I did today and was blown away by these handmade embroidered silk ribbon necklace pendants! Embroidered rose, daisy, iris, lily, daffodil, sunflower, hollyhocks, chrysanthemum, and more! Wow, they are SO SO pretty! I probably never mentioned it but I have a soft spot for any type of embroidery work. Yes, and I even did embroidered craftwork some years back and I’ll show you one of my pieces in a bit if you like to see. （＾＿－）
Satchel was my kind of thing like 20 years ago? Ha. But somehow, the appeal lessened down the years and it took me a lot longer to want to get hold of the classic Cambridge Satchel, often described as “The Brit It Bag”. But I jumped at the chance when I saw this pink shimmering bag in metallic leather at Shopbop and decided to get it with the gift certificates I received as part of my monthly fashion collaboration with the online store.
We don’t get spring here. No birds and blooms. Nah. But that doesn’t mean you can’t breathe some spring into your wardrobe. This season is all about fresh hues and bright colors! And even if you’re not fans of spring colors, you can add a bright spot to your ensemble with an accessory of citrus, yellow, teal, green or any cool sorbet shade. Or dump your dark nail polishes for some candy colors!
