Stripes, bows and ballet flats


Banana Republic cardi, Urban Outfitters top, f21 shorts with bow, Tiffany & Co double ring necklace, f21 stackable bangles


my staples - ballet flats


more necklaces than earrings


Latest acquisition - J Crew bow headband and Marc by Marc Jacobs Lil Miss Marc bangle

I love stripes and bows and lately, I'm experimenting bold clashing polka dots with stripes.

I love scoring good bargains. The UO top cost a mere USD$9.99, the shorts, USD10 and the flats - I can't recall but something crazy like USD8-13.

I love heels but can never survive in them so I wear them at most twice a week and mostly live in flats.

Much as I believe in investing in quality ballet flats like my Miu Miu's or Cole Haan's, I do buy a fair number of random and extremely affordable flats. I am currently looking around for a quality pair of ballet flats specifically from the little 'r'. Couldn't find one during my last Hong Kong trip - hopefully soon. Yes! Hong Kong is in the plans again!! I can't wait!

Perfect timing

Sometimes I really do love how friends can knock so much sense into this tiny head of mine. At the perfect timing as well.

That magazine in the bathroom, left on top of the pile, was deliberately left there for me. I read the article twice and went OMG. This is timely advice. A few days later, we got onto that topic and I said, Ooh I read this article in your mag in the bathroom and it really helped. She said, I meant to ask you to read it. I read it twice.

Good friends are true blessings from above. The other day, a close friend of mine told me that I'm a really good friend and it really made my day. I have a few treasured good friends around me and it's good to know that I am one for them too.

On the same topic of 'advices', I meant to post this earlier but never got around to doing it. Well, better late than never :)

“The first thing to do to become happier, paradoxically, is to accept painful emotions, to accept them as a part of being alive. You know, there are two kinds of people who don’t experience painful emotions such as anxiety or disappointment, sadness, envy; two kinds of people who don’t experience these painful emotions. They are the psychopaths and the dead. So if we experience painful emotions at time, it’s actually a good sign. It means that we’re not a psychopath and we’re alive. The paradox is that when we give ourselves the permission to be human, the permission to experience the full gamut of human emotion. We open ourselves up to positive emotions as well,” – Tal Ben-Shahar, Psychology Lecturer at Harvard
