Strawberry Vanilla

Hellooo~ I'm back with an update. July seems to be one of the months that I am more active on social media. Cleared my final assignment last week and now I'm sad to admit that it's kind of boring now. Besides having dramas and shows taking over my life, next up would be the final exams and then all of these would then be over.   
Oh yes, by the way I'm currently re-watching all of Harry Potter movies! Getting all excited when the Order of the Phoenix fight the death eaters and tearing when Sirius was hit by the killing curse. :') I've just finished watch Order of the Pheonix and I'm about to start the next one while waiting for episode 7 of the Korean re-make of Fated to Love You. 
P.S:If you have no idea what Korean drama to watch, I'd strongly recommend you to watch Fated to Love You with me. It's a cliche romance comedy drama but who seriously.. Who cares when the lead characters have so much chemistry? :D 
(Please watch it with me, so I can have someone who could understand the agony I am in every Wed/Thurs.) Hahaha. 


Honestly, I couldn't wait to share with you guys this set of photos because it's a set that I really love. Always love exploring new places for outfit photos and I'm just glad that I found it here. The white walls and the lack of crowd is definitely a great place for photos. 
Believe it or not, but the best buy from this outfit would be my hair band which I scored it at only $4 from Colette by Colette Hayman. The midi skirt was love at first sight, I went straight to the cashier after fitting and my shoes were also a great buy back in Bangkok City last year. 


Details: 

- Crystal hair band (Colette by Colette Hayman) 
- White basic top (Dorothy Perkins) 
- Pastel pink mesh midi skirt (Dorothy Perkins) 
- Pony Bag
- Mickey & Minnie flats 









Some of my favorite things: 

Pony Bag
Cupcake pouch 
Minnie Handphone Casing
Handcream from Crabtree & Evelyn 
Versace Absolu 
Urban Decay Naked 3 palette 
YSL lippies 

I hope you guys are having a great Summer wherever you are~ Feel free to leave me a comment, or you could just tweet me or facebook message me.

Leafy Greens






Outfit details: 

Sweat heart Sundress (Dorothy Perkins) 
Black Cardigan (Patch)
Black platforms (Charles & Keith)
Unicorn Clutch (Infinite Pixie) 

Discovered this gem hidden in an alleyway a few weeks back and I knew I had to go back to snap some pictures. Oh, I almost fell on my way there because of my platforms (HAHA, what a klutz). This outfit was inspired by a friend who never fails to wear a cardigan over a sleeveless dress. :)

R R Rant: Boobie Woes

You read it right, I'm talking about boobs right now! I intended to keep this to myself but I thought ranting would be the best to vent my frustrations now. So bear with my, breasties

So recently there is this person who is annoying me. This annoying person, let's just call her K.
K is a person is seemingly self-conscious about herself. She takes interest in keeping a good physique, health food that I bring to work and also fashion. So whenever she asks about workout & dieting tips or fashion advise, I'd willingly share my knowledge with her. 
Anyway previously, she claimed that she needed to reduce weight so I introduced her Blogilates and Jessica Smith for simple exercises that could be done in the comfort at her home.
Her excuse was.. "Huh.. But I don't like to exercise."


Also, there are times that I thoughts she's weird. Note that I'm not close with J, I barely knew her.
On my work days, I'd usually pack homemade salad because I insist on eating healthy. Whenever I open my lunchbox, I could almost see K's eyes lighting up. She would ask me a tonne of questions like where can she get the granola bar that I'm eating, the recipe of my salad, where I bought my salad dressing and on and on. There are some days that she go out of her way to compliment about how awesome my salad looks and its making her tummy growl, I'd ask her if she wanted to try out of courtesy. (Of course, she went right ahead without refusing.) But this is fine because I invited her to taste my salad.

Well, the most annoying part has yet to come. Let's rewind to last week... 

It was a typical work day in the office, K suddenly came beside me and she started squishing my arm before giving a suggestion she thought was wise.

K was like: "Clarie, have you seen a nutritionist to see how much weight you can lose? *gives a serious face while studying my body* I believe that if you become slimmer you would look better." 

Seriously.... You are not self-inviting to my inner-circle are you? First, who gave you the permission to touch me or have any skin contact with me??!!  (Get your hands off me!!!)
Come on auntie, we are not even close for goodness sake! What makes you think I am in for discussion about my weight with you. And bitch please, of all the people you are worst when it come to diet. You have the least self-control, constantly snacking on unhealthy snacks not forgetting that MacDonald s is your favorite food. Now, who needs a nutritionist more? 


And yesterday K decided to she take another chance in knocking the doors to my circle by asking me an awkwardly outrageous question. I was wearing a  black mashed top with a floral skater skirt and one of my colleague commented that I looked slimmer than before. But I told her it's the top that made me visually slimmer. K who sat at the corner decided to get involved  by stating her disagreement. She just had to made a comment and give her piece of her mind... (Actually, nobody asked for your opinions, how about you just shut up?)

She said.. "Hmm I think your breasts are too concentrated in the middle. Maybe if you exercise more and slim your boobs you will look slimmer. "

Yeah she just did. SHARED HER BLOODY PIECE OF MIND WHEN I DIDN'T FUCKING ASK FOR IT. My boobs are concentrated? Of course it is, that's what bras are made for right???!!! My boobs are in the right  place and it's where it should be. If not what? Am I supposed to leave my boobs hanging outside of my bra?


I stood there dumbfounded by the ridiculous comment that she just made and she continued with her crap about how she have fuller breasts when she was pregnant (Auntie TMI! Nobody is interested!!!). I felt relieved for a moment thinking that it's all over until she diverted her attention back to me, shamelessly probing..  "I'm just curious but what is your cup size uh? Got F or not ah, like Jolin? "

SO WHAT YOU ARE CURIOUS AUNTIE??!! I DON'T LIVE TO SATISFY YOUR CURIOSITY!!! This is just plain rude! We are not even close or connected or what so ever, give me a damn good reason that I should answer you? Do you think I'm stupid enough to tell you and let you broadcast to the whole whole?
In my mind, I was thinking. Yeah my cup is F... U C K U. Hahaha. Well I didn't bother replying because I know what might come next.

"Oh so does the gene runs in the family also? "

"What do you eat to have boobs like this? "

And blah blah blah... ... She'd be sure to question me like I'm some offender.

I DON'T KNOW WHY BUT THIS IS HOW MY BODY IS STRUCTURED IF YOU WANT BOOBS MAYBE YOU CAN CONSIDER PLASTIC SURGERY!

Oh yes, she even tried to apologize to me with minimal effort.
"Eh, no offence uh. I hope you are not offended what I just said." 

Yeah yeah yeah, that was so convenient of you. If you thought that it's offensive, you wouldn't have asked me in the first place. It's like killing someone and then tell them that you're sorry for killing them. WHAT FOR?



So today, I intentionally wore something that has a lower neck-line because I wanted to see what else she has to say. True enough, she didn't disappoint because I just knew she couldn't help herself.
She commented that I was very westernized but when I asked her why she didn't say much AND THEN.... somehow or another, she managed to pick up where she left off last week... (She certainly has ZERO creativity in starting a conversation.)

"You know you have pretty eyes? If you slim down you will be prettier."



Yeah right, maybe if you shut up you'd seem less ugly. SERIOUSLY, WHEN ARE YOU FUCKING GOING TO STOP AUNTIE K? AND WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU TO JUDGE ME OR MY BODY?


I don't need you to judge my beauty.

People like her should cease to exist, she doesn't think about what place she is in to have given suggestions or comments. I don't need your shit advise or comments because I worked hard for what I am today and if I were to get the same shit again next week, I'll be sure to fire back. Seriously, just stfu bitch.

Buried My Flaws Deep Beneath

Time is passing in a blink of eye, we've reached the halfway mark of 2014. How is it going for you so far? 
It has been three weeks since my last update. Other than being tied up school and work, I've been very busy catching up on Reign & Game of Thrones as well. Hence, the lack of posts. 
(GOT is a must-watch! I haven't read the book but the show is just so epic!) 
My apologies, but I'm back with an outfit update~

Twirling in the (another )new maxi skirt.
Yes yes, it's another maxi skirt. I tried to stop adding any more maxis into my wardrobe but I just couldn't help myself when it comes in this shade of blue~ Well, if that's not crazy enough, I have another skirt of the same design but with a different colour.
Everything aside, I really adore this piece because of it's light-weight material and it suits the summer season anyway. But I guess this shows my undying love for maxis~ Love 'em so much cause they cover so much of my flaws (aka unflattering legs).

 

Details: 
White basic top (Scored it at only SGD$9) // Dorothy Perkins 
Mesh Pleated Maxi Skirt // Dorothy Perkins
Shoes // Charles & Keith 
Bag// BKK (It's not from H&M although they sold something similar previously)

I have more photos for this outfit because many of it turned out miraculously good, so I decided to share~ Let me know what style are you into this Summer and what do you think about maxi skirts. I'd love to know. 




Once again, a huge Thank You for visiting my blog.

FAV BOOK + OOTD: FLOWY MAXI SKIRT

Hello internet friends, how is everyone doing? 

I hope everyone is doing great~ :D 
I'm back for another outfit post but before that I wanna share with you one of my favourite book and that is... The Art of Communication II by Taiwanese author Kevin Tsai; otherwise known as Cai Kang Yong. 
Well, I chanced upon the first book a couple of years back on playstore and decided to give it a read. Yeah I know... I didn't even own a physical copy of the first book back then but I'm glad he decided to release a part II to it and I managed to get my hands on it. 

Speaking/talking/communicating is something that we do everyday but we put very little thoughts to it because we don't know the art to it. I know I'm not exactly good with words but somehow or another, I realised that the importance of communications is key to building good relationsips and doors to more oppotunities. To be good with words is a virtue and I'm sure that we all know some people in our lives who are always benefitting from it. 

For me, it's H. H is just simply fantastic with words, till the extend that it doesn't feel like a chore when she asks for a favour. It all happened when H was about to attend a themed party, she wanted to dress up as Amy Winehouse but she was missing a hair piece to complete the look. So knowing that I have a collection of head pieces, she seeked me for help. 

She didn't start off the classic way by saying. "Can you do me favour?" Instead H took a different approach and she said something like, "Hey, I know you have a extensive collection of head pieces and I was wondering if you have a statement piece that I can borrow?" 

This may sound shallow but a twist of words with the same underlying meaning can make so much difference and it just makes me more eager to help. Anyway, H was really sincere because she was ready to travel to my place just to collect the headband from me. But sadly, I couldn't find anything that suits her. 

What I'm trying to say is that, we should all take a little more time to think and about what we have to say. There is nothing wrong to being direct but it may be the tone of voice and the way that the message is being conveyed might be hurtful to the person who is listening. Think before you speak because most of the time things that are blurted out so quickly might be hurtful to the one listening and you might unknowingly made an enemy. But if you are like interested in communications like me and you happened to be able to read Chinese texts, then go pick up this book. Because I assure you that it's gonna be a great read.

Alrighty, enough of my blabberings. Moving off to my outfit~


 Yeah, it's true that I am still not over the maxi skirt craze. I have 5 maxis in my closet till date and I'm guilty for buying the same design in different colours. I just wished that I could twirl all day in my skirt~ Anyway, this orange maxi is one of my current favourites because of its lightweight material and I'd probably be wearing this again tommorrow for school. :D

It's pretty awkward to be smiling with my teeth. :S 






Great shots are really hard to capture and these are the only 3 that I picked. But funny faces on the other hand are so much easier. Hahahaha Have a great week everybody!

Baby, it's cold outside.

On a night like this, I lit up my favourite candle, listen to the raindrops tapping on my window pane while I cosy up in my warm bed writing this post. So glad that I managed to make it home in time from my night jog before the rain started pouring. Oh these little things makes my day. A cup of hot chocolate would be perfect tonight. 



Anyway, I wanted to share some of the souveniers that I got from 3 different people who travelled out of the country last month.

1) A hand made bracelet & heart-shaped keychain (Godfather's recent trip to Eastern Europe)
The cute bracelet was something special that he picked out from along the streets during Easter Day and the key chain was from Budapest. Looking at his pictures

2) Postcard & coaster from Melbourne
A classmate went to Melbourne recently and he visited most of the places that Running Man filmed during their trip there. Saw a couple of familiar places that I've visited when I was a kid and it brought back so many memories.

3) Dainty bracelets & One Direction Merchandise
S came back from London with these! 8D S is really thoughtful because I told her once that I accidentally broke the bracelet that she got me from Taiwan and so she bought me a pack of 6 bracelets. (If one broke, I still have 5 more. Haha.) Well, she also got me One Direction merch because she thought I was a fan, she must have misunderstood me when I told her I liked a couple of songs by them. Haha. But still, thank you for paying attention to every little detail <3 nbsp="" p="">
Speaking of travelling, I'm almost done with university and would be gruaduating at the end of this year and no concrete plans were set for travel yet. I wanna do something memorable for myself before officially starting my career and I'm very tempted to sign up for internship or a work exchange in a foreign country. I did some research and reading, I was read some of the job scope and I doubted my abilities. Haha.
There is another way which is through Au Pair, where you mainly deal with kids by taking care of them. The only kid that I hang out with frequently is my baby cousin and I can't say that I'm great with kids. Playing and keeping company with her is a fine but through Au Pair I'd need to cook for the kid. Well, the best I can do is scramble eggs, salad, pan fried garlic prawn and black pepper mushroom, I'm sure no kids would love that. 
But even if I don't accomplish it this year, I hope to go on a work exchange before I turn 30. I believe that it would be an incredible experience to immerse in the culture of a foreign country and this is the best way to be independent. 

Can't wait to broaden my horizons and to see the world~


And this is what I've been complanining about. Awkward bangs and messy hair.


Oh yes, if anyone went for a work exchange, please feel to share your experience and which country you went for the exchange. :>

 OOTD: 
Black laced tee and colored jeans from Dorothy Perkins. Heels by Edge from Zalora. Pony bag from BKK

There was a phase in my life where I kept going for skinny jeans & jeggings and eventually I grew out of that. I guess there is no particular style that I stick to, I used to love dresses but I learned to appreciate skirts and now my current obsession is the maxi skirt. 

I used to wear pants a lot (those were the size 20 days) because I really loved how convenient it is. I was day-dreaming about wearing something comfortable but not too casual, that's how I remembered the existence of this purple skinny jeans and I went to dig them out to see if it still fits. 
Besides the waist area being a tad too loose, everything else fits. Wore a laced top with the pants to give a touch of femininity and to complete the look I threw on a pair of heels which I got from Zalora. 



Matchy toe nails with the heels.

So yesterday, while shopping in town, my aunt & I had this strange encounter with this guy who kept staring at me like a creep and tried to followed us around. Also on the same day, I met 'THE ONE'. The one that I've been searching for. 
.
.
.

Presenting to you... MY DREAM MAXI SKIRT~ 
I've been looking around for something similar and I finally found it! The color is perfect and so is the material, cutting and every other thing about this beautiful piece~ But sadly, it isn't mine because I'm not ready to pay $120 for it. We had to part our ways eventually. ):  
For anyone who is interested, my dream skirt is from Marks & Spencer (now only left with UK size 8 and 12)  

I'm still thinking about this gorgeous skirt right now and you probably wouldn't be able to imagine the pain of parting with this pretty one. (Pardon me, I'm just being a drama queen.) 
And if you came across a maxi skirt similar to this, please let me know! 8D

I'm gonna resume watching Criminal Minds Season 5 now~

Sweater Weather

Back when the weather was chillier, throwing on a sweater was the best to keep warm. Paired this $4 light grey top from the morning market in Bangkok with my ASOS-Club L bubblegum skater skirt. 


Outfit details: 

- Light Grey Sweater : BKK morning market (right below Glow Pratunam) 
- Skater skirt in Bubblegum : ASOS - Club L 
- Hot pink satchel - Comoditee Gold
- Black platforms - Charles & Keith 





School is officially out and I am so free now. Call me a weirdo, but I kinda miss having assignments. But seriously, what is school break without going overseas for a vacation? It sucks to not be able to travel during long school break. But for now, my part-time job and 9 seasons of Criminal Minds are taking over my life. On days that I'm not working, I'd most probably be stuck at home having a Criminal Minds marathon.

To put it simply, I don't have a life. 


I've also been noticing that my blog has unusually gaining more hits. Thank you for reading this boring blog with the lack of eggciting elements but I'm sure that there are some people who likes it blend right? Haha.

A big HELLO to youyou and you from around the world! Let me give you a big virtual computer hug *hugs* Thank you for chancing upon my blog and I hope you'd find what you needed. If you happened to read my posts from 2 years back, please pardon my bad writing skills.

I shall end off with a song that I really like that was recommended by a friend (I love people with great taste in music.)

A P R I L

April is the month that I turn twenty two. What remained the same is only my relationship status,  I'm pretty sure I'm a different person that I used to be. Happiness used to be everything but I have higher expectations of myself now. Of course, I wouldn't trade my own happiness for anything else but there are things that I believe is more important now. 

At 22, I won't even ask for much. I am just grateful that the people whom I cherish dearly are still here with me. Their existence is the greatest gift for me. 
Not forgetting readers who constantly leave me a comment on my blog, be-friended me on Facebook and liking my photos on Instagram. I wanna say THANK YOU! Thank you for taking the initiative and thanking you for wanting to know me. 

Contrasting to last year's lavish dinner party, I didn't exactly planned for my birthday this year. I was so busy mugging for my exam and I simply couldn't be bothered. I even thought of staying home to finish revision (what a geek). Finally, an idea struck me last minute which is to visit the National Museum. 
The last time I've been to the museum was 3 years back on a school field trip and I decided to go back again to explore the place hoping to be inspired. I've always been a fan of museums because of its historical value and it beautiful classical architecture. 

Had my birthday lunch at Food For Thought in National Museum before we began exploring the place. It's such a pity that we didn't have enough time to tour all the exhibits, I hope I'd be able to go again soon. 


I ruined my bangs! But since it's my birthday, please unsee my wonky bangs. ;)



With my BFF/Yubo. 


Get ready for some major picture spam. 

Outfit details of my Birthday Suit: 

\\Pastel blue knitted top// H&M
\\Nude maxi skirt// Dorothy Perkins
\\Shoes// Pazzion
\\Lil orange bag// Charles & Keith
\\Earrings and bangles//Lovisa 






And Yubo finally presented my gift during dinner time. Hahaha. It was awkward because I murdered her surprise for me. She came all the way to my house, wanting surprise me when I got downstairs but.... I destroyed it. HAHAHA. I was supposed to text her before leaving home but seeing that I'm already running late, I told her that I was at the bus stop waiting for the bus while I was still at home. That poor girl bought it and she fled to the bus stop, worried that she might miss me by a minute. HAHAHA. It was so hilarious and because I was caught red handed for lying.

That is my flimsy hand-made card along with my gift wrapped with newspaper. Imagine the 'surprise' receiving that.



 There is a reason for my laughter there. Hahaha. Let me show you the card she made me... ...



Yes.... I know I can be a little bit crazy sometimes and I shall leave you with one nice picture of me before I end the post (please forget about me being weird)...
