Peeps, it’s still Chinese New Year where I’m based and as I’m typing, I can hear some “lions” dancing in the distance. It’s good thing CNY happens once a year but a stretch of 15 days is really too much especially because it gives many of us a valid excuse to indulge our tummies. But too much of a good thing in the tummy isn’t always fine for the waistline or the hips. I realized my tummy is no longer flat! And so to conceal the bulge, I’m resorting to loose outfits!
What? Wearing leather jackets in hot, humid Singapore? Are you mad? Well, no actually. I think it’s perfectly fine to wear them indoors, especially when the weather is all wet and cold. Anyway, I can wear my leather jacket to work but I’ve decided to keep it as a weekend gear instead. I mean, there has to come a point where I don’t look like I’m going to work every day right?
I realized that we have very talented ladies in the blogging circuit and I’m not talking about makeup skills or photography flair. I’m talking about ladies who are gifted with deft fingers to handcraft works of wearable art like this colorful nest of what looks like eggs but are really skittles! Delicious looking? You bet! And no, you can’t eat those skittles because they’re baked from clay with no sugar added. Ha!
It’s no secret that I love handmade jewelry but within the category, my heart goes to those that are vintage inspired, particularly those that look rather aged. There’s just something enchanting about them – maybe it’s because of the antique feel, perhaps it’s due to the nostalgic inspiration or it could be just the dreamy appeal – I’m not exactly sure. But one thing I know is that they make great conversation pieces because they usually look quite unique.
