i have a thing for... A 3-COURSE MEAL CHALLANGE

first of all, i would like to thank friends who gave me positive feedbacks about my little blog. it is soooooo encouraging to know friends who has great taste and sense are reading my random scribbling! your comments are very valuable to me so please keep talking!!! :)

okay so, today is officially the first year wedding anniversary. to objectively express my 'love' and 'thankful heart' to my husband for putting up with my hot temper and take-it-for-granted attitude, i have decided to cook something nice for him. therefore a week ago i started going through recipes and thought Jamie Oliver's are quite a good idea to try out.

right, the pictures might be very much misleading coz i am quite sure i won't be able to achieve this quality... but then we got this new grill thing at home and it would be a waste if i never start to learn how to use it. fingers cross, i won't be eating instant noodles tonight instead or having fireman in my house... lol (i have linked the captions with the recipes feel free to click on them if you are interested)

i'll let you know what's the result later on...................

i have a thing for... THE PERSPEX PERSPECTIVE

another trend i have spotted recently is the perspex heels - well not just for heels but you know how i can't help focusing on shoes - they are seen from the runways to the fast fashion brands like zara. they are so desirable... looks like ones stepping in the air... floating~~~

do you like pink? i probably like pink more than i know.
i refuse to like this colour in the past becoz it was too feminine to me. however, this season's dream like palette leads me to rethink this colour as my new fav - especially the rose and coral pink tones that matches so well with all the other pastel tones.

metallic rose and rose gold are replacing the regular vintage gold, bringing more warmth and softer than ever.

i have a thing for... BEING NERDY

books books books... don't they look familiar to you??

no, they are not the ones we used to read/tear/burn/keep dust/put under desk legs. these are actually clutch bags!!!

they are designed by Olympia Le-Tan. this quirky accessory has appeared on the red carpet, carried by Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman. i love old books, i used to collect old children books when i was studying in london, bought a few here and there while traveling to different countries, especially attracted by their cover and vintage graphics and colours. sometimes their smell too. hahaha!! i even thought one day i would design book covers...

michelle williams carrying 'the misfists' and natalie portman carrying 'lolita'

this clutch is definitely an object of desire!!! apparantly they sell it in i.t., gosh why does it always take me forever to notice these treasures???
