Gratitude

So I wrote a long post on my monthly favourites page for the month of August and then my computer crashes! Now I cant remember those carefully thought words anymore so I shall leave that for tomorrow maybe.

This post is solely meant to thank a few bloggers/Youtubers that have been more than helpful with the progress of my jewellery line. In no particular order, the people responsible in introducing my jewellery line to the outside world;

Charlotte from CosmeticsCharlotte72

Vivianna from ViviannaDoesMakeup

Nicola fromΒ  Non-Optional

Eda from Edaburgh

Michelle from DaisyButter

They have done reviews, features, outfit of the days etc. all involving my jewellery line. I’m absolutely flattered and thankful for the exposure!

traditional outfit from Malaysia, Le Sensible necklace from my line

It was Eid celebration last Thurs, hence the pics of me in my traditional outfit. I went to the Malaysian Embassy to celebrate it with fellow Malaysians. It was bittersweet as I couldn’t celebrate it with my family, 6000 miles away. But all is good when you have good food at the embassy πŸ™‚

Have a great week!

New Project

27 Apr

Recently I’ve been occupying myself with this new and exciting project that I’m going to share with you. It has taken me awhile to write this as I’m a little paranoid with how people might perceive it. But like the saying goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, what I can only do is not afraid to share mine.

I think it has been 2 months now that I’ve started making and designing my own jewellery. I promise you its not as fancy as it sounds. My designs are simple and wearable with a few unique pieces. I have made in total 10 different items, but I shall share 2 of them for now.

The stone used is Jasper Natural Stone, it has a unique colour, I think the pictures are not doing this stone justice! It is a dusky pink colour with little specs of light green. I would say the 2nd pic is the closest to the true colour. The little pearls are actually freshwater pearls. I made everything from scratch, excluding the drilling of the holes for the stone. Apart from that, the connecting, cutting, wiring are all handmade!

Styling : Would look great with a light-weight collared shirt; unbutton the first few buttons to show off this unique piece.

Turquoise has always been one of my favourite colours for jewellery, especially during summer. The shiny gold colour of the chain brings out the matte turquoise colour really well. The beads are all natural stones. It is a wrap-around bracelet, so you can make it into a necklace too since the length is long enough.

Styling: Turquoise and gold go well with cream/white/off-white clothes. Wear this with a simple cream blouse and jeans for daytime casual in the sun.

I do sell a few of my pieces to close friends and family. I have not expanded this business yet as I am new to it, but it is a dream of mine to move this business forward eventually πŸ™‚ All of my pieces are made-to-order.

I may show a few more pieces in the future but for now, here is a sneak peek…

Disclaimer : The crystals used are real Swarovski Crystals

Papa Tee

20 Apr

As I’ve previously mentioned, I ordered stuff off ASOS last week. So usually international mail would take like what 2-3 weeks? I know our mailing system in Malaysia isn’t that great but I was pleasantly surprised when I received this package last friday but only had the time to pick it up from the post office yesterday.

I ordered on the 10th, and it arrived in Malaysia on the 14th (as stated on the stamp), was held up at the post office on the 15th and carefully made its way to my house on the 19th! So basically it took 4 days to arrive! I am beyond impressed! I guess it’s not as frustrating as I thought for people here to be getting their ASOS orders.

I may have sounded unenthusiastic when I last wrote about ordering this, mainly because it was an uninteresting purchase but secretly I have had high hopes for this package. So you can imagine my disappointment when the t-shirt I bought was not what I expected. It was the wrong fit….as in TOO BIG. It’s not even a size too big, it was humongous!

As you can see I’ve opted to demonstrate how big that t-shirt is, I’ve tried it on and I could make a long tunic out of it or maybe a nightie! The one on the left is one of my t-shirt and even that t-shirt doesn’t exactly snug my body perfectly. It’s like baby t-shirt and its daddy!

I started writing this long email to ASOS stating how could their sizing differ so much from the usual. I bought that t-shirt in size 12 (I’m usually a size 10)Β  just because I wanted my t-shirt to be slightly loose and also I know cotton would shrink in the wash. Words like “unreliable”,Β  “standard sizing” and “disappointed” was mainly what flooded that email. So before I hit the send button I thought I would check this item on the website again.

And GUESS WHAT?

It clearly states…… Oversized T-shirt

My god I am so dense! Clearly it didn’t occur to me oversized would be OVERSIZED even though I stared at that same thing for days before ordering.

My friend used to call me a malteser. You know like the chocolate, not the dog. At least I hope she meant the chocolate?

Brown on the outside BLONDE on the inside. (Geee..thanks Asli,if you’re reading this).

So basically I deleted the email, every last word felt like it was mocking me. Imagine if I were to send that email, probably would get a freebie. Hehe.

My mission for today is to shrink the life out of that t-shirt! I’ll soak it in hot water for a few hours and maybe I would have to do a little sewing.

Oh and another purchase was that ring. I’m not too sure if I love it or not. It is bigger than what I thought (as usual), but I like the colour, very summery! The quality isn’t that bad too, very heavy! I think I could work it as a statement piece!

That’s all folks! I have some shrinking to do!

Again, I’ll be leaving you with a song that has been overplayed by me πŸ™‚ I’ve always preferred any acoustic version.
