Back to blogging: Why I was away for so long & my Chanel hoards!

Tags

,

Well, I started another venture which is close to heart.
I’ve been tutoring for such a long time and when the opportunity came for me to start a learning centre to help more students excel in their studies, I jumped at it!

It’s not easy opening a brick & mortar business.
I’ve learnt not to procrastinate and take responsibility for everything that involved the business.
For the past 1 year 7 months, I’ve been breathing, eating and sleeping Tutelage (the name of my learning centre). There’s not a day that goes by without thinking about how to improve the business.
It worn me out so much that I gave up Mollylodge (my baby), my social life (quite non-existent to begin with), my free days (even public holidays) and health altogether. I fell and still am falling ill every other week due to lack of sleep or exhaustion from work.
Despite all these, I still love where I am now and I’m really proud of myself for making it this far. My desire to succeed gets even stronger owing to many detractors who did not believe in me. As for those of you who believe in me, I’m really grateful for the belief and will continue to work hard!

Now that business has stabilised, I can finally return to my love for fashion. I’ve gotten into this bad habit of hoarding lots of pretty clothes, bags and shoes to make me feel better for working so hard. Such a vicious cycle I know. Mental note to self: stop hoarding and start wearing them!

This is what my spring/summer outfits are like. Pretty pastels cardigans and crotcheted floral white as snow skirts. I’ve always loved midi skirts that go beyond the knees, though they are not universally flattering for everyone since they do not elongate legs. Still, there’s this old world charm and romance about them that captivates me for whatever reason I can’t think of.

My other favourites of the collection that is available for sale at Mollylodge! :)

Neglected Space

Finally getting my lazy ass to update this space that I’ve neglected for the longest time.

I won’t deny that orchestrating long posts kind of turned me off from posting so tweaking my mind a little into updating with short entries might just do the trick.

Love is in the air!

Shuffling between balloons, dresses, shoots and emails has been nothing short of occupying every waking hour of mine for the past weeks.

I should resolute to manage a blog post or two, albeit a short one here. How is your February coming along? It’s just so lovely for me. The boyfriend told me to leave my Tuesday free and I’m incredibly excited every single day now. I know people always find Valentine’s day commercialized and unnecessary. I beg to differ! We are always so caught up with work and do not make it a point to celebrate the relationship we’re in. These special days, just like Christmas and New Year, are like alarm clocks to wake us from the daily drill and drone so that we do special things together and etch these precious memories that we can tease each other about from time to time.

Yes, that’s the vintage seashell purse that just arrived the other day. I’ve been dreaming of such a purse for the longest time and it’s like a dream come true! Never gonna let such a gem leave me ever!

Happy Chinese New Year!

Happy Chinese New Year to all who are celebrating! I’ve been taking as much rest as I can these couple of days and finally squeeze in some time to blog! Decided to wear these yet-to-be-launched pieces from Molly Lodge for the reunion dinner and discovered that quilts go so well together with fur. This is the most luxurious fur I’ve worn to date and I can’t wait to put it up for sale!

What else do I love about this outfit?

This gold plated cuff the boyfriend bought for me a few days ago! I’m already conjuring images of me pairing it with long, flowy maxis or vintage white tops.

There is nothing more I love than to spend the evening outdoors. After the rejuvenating Bali trip, we made a pact to spend more evenings in the park or beach instead of hitting the weekend crowd in town or slouching in front of the TV at home. Turns out to be one of the best post-holiday resolution ever.

Anyway, I’m going to embark on my new venture really soon and most of what you see above are going to be up for sale in limited pieces. Stay tuned for more updates! What do you think of this beautiful pair of heels as a giveaway?

Hello 2012!

, , , , , ,

As with everyone else, my past week was brimmed up with lots of gatherings which left me with perpetually no time to update this space. Nonetheless, I was really persistent to get the outfit posts going, so my poor boyfriend had to be dragged along in the unpredictable weather, hot and sunny one moment then cold and pouring the next, to snap these pictures for me! I also find that the park has been topping my exhaustive list of places to gather picture-perfect sunlight, to the point that we’re nonchalent about those commando mosquitoes leaving itchy spots everywhere.

I love this pair of shoes from Pazzion! It spins such wearable vintage vibe that I can pair it up with any outfit in the wardrobe. On a separate note, I think 2012 is a tough year for me, with lots of changes laid out in the year plan. Resolutions shall remain as they are as always, I wonder if I’ll ever get them done. Anyway, I’m working on a giveaway post real soon, can’t wait to share with you!

Last week of 2011 and I’m savouring every second I spend with my loved ones, especially friends who are always busy all year round. Maybe that’s the reason why I look forward to Christmas.

me: I just love the Christmas songs and deco and everything that encompasses it this year! Christmas is just so special! Awwww… (self-indulging in my love for Christmas)

boyfriend: You say the same things every year..

me: Really I do?

boyfriend: Here, get a recorder for your Christmas speech.

Digging out these month-old photos we took near Royal Cafe, one of our favourite lunch hunts!

My favourite dish has gotta be this!
