According to the instructions, the roller is supposed to be rolled up and down the jawlines. However, I would suggest rolling it upwards only as rolling it downwards seems contrary to the objective of achieving firmer skin.

I'm not usually a shawl person but couldn't resist buying this shawl a few months ago as the color was just so alluring. I have debated internally and with friends if I should be wearing one to a cocktail (is it a faux pas or only something only older women wear?). In the end, I just wore what I wanted!

During my last holiday in China, we went up the Kanas mountains and the beautiful scenary was majestic. However, it was at this place in Xinjiang that I breathed in the fresh air and suddenly felt thankful for everything I have and resolved to be a better person. It was at this place where out of the blue I experienced an epiphany after climbing up the steps to reach the top of the hill:
Today, I remembered a couple of charms that my parents bought for me a few years ago. The charm was in the shape of a vaseful of flowers with the words "Thank You" engraved on it. Instead of being appreciative of the charms, I told my parents that I did not know what to do with them. Who would want to wear charms with the words "Thank You" on them?
Just inspired today, I made a necklace this evening with the floral "Thank You" charm to remind myself to be thankful for all I have. I am grateful for my family and boyfriend, friends, colleagues, and even basic things like shelter and food. I'm also thankful for everything that I can do.
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity....It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow." - Melodie Beattie

Went for the SGX Bull Charge run yesterday and a primary school class gathering after that. It was our 2nd gathering in 20 years! It was hilarious that most of the girls wore black (we think that that's because we want to look slim for a class reunion after 2 decades! haha). Our conclusion was also that guys tend to age slower than girls - guys seem to look younger!

At the Wuyi night bazaar in Urumqi, I ate mutton, grilled fish and other seafood from the road stalls and quite a fair bit of fried silk worm cocoons as well. That night I ended up with swollen eyes and a blocked nose as a result of a food allergy or food poisoning (I was very thankful that I could still breathe through my mouth otherwise there would be more adventures to the local hospital). As my mom was saying back home, why did I have to eat 8 pieces of the insect when 1 would do to try the taste (Ans: I did not want to waste so much food).
I bought dried raisins and walnuts but my favourite purchase is this brand new pair of velveteen mid-heeled Mary-Janes from a stall at the Wuyi night bazaar. The shoes are labelled as "gong yi bu xie" i.e. handcrafted fabric shoes. It's comfortable and so economically priced that I didn't have the heart to bargain for it (only S$3). This will look wonderful on its own or with a pair of colorful striped socks. I only regretted not buying a few more pairs since I've only seen them more commonly as flats.

I thought my search has come to fruition when I found this B Store by Buddhahood pair in black and grey at Sole 2 Sole months ago and was so excited! But alas, it was not to be as the pair in my size was sold out:
I also found wingtips either in all black or all white in other boutiques but nothing as chic as this 2-tone pair. If you know where to get duo-tone wingtips, please let me know!

The white and navy dress below looks similar to my Marc by Marc Jacobs dress. The only visible difference is the ribbon in front: the MJ dress does not have a real ribbon, instead it is a 2D sewed-on ribbon. This looks great too though:

This piece of work is like my dream furniture: it's green (my fave color), it's in one of my favourite shapes and it will fit perfectly with my new home decor (house decoration in progress). This is totally whimsical and absolutely rocks (pun intended again)! :)

I love these! They are as great as promised! They are cute, but not overly so and definitely great fun to wear!

By the way, I have not worn the pink shutter shades yet. So far, I've been too chicken to wear it. I can see clearly through it, although it may look better perched on top of my head. :p
