Yup! I finally got my pre-ordered Royal Blue Tri-Colour Nubuck Mini! It's from the Fall 2012 collection and was freshly delivered to my friend's office in HK (to avoid the astronomical duty if shipped directly to China) and brought back to me last friday!
I can't be happier with the colours (can you see how mesmerizing the royal blue is in nubuck leather?!?). In fact, I'm carrying it today to TianMa Golf Resort for a fun day at the pool with Ayden.
Have a good weekend!

Exposing your back (and only your back instead of exposing your back/front/legs/etc...) with either a dress or top can be very seductive! I especially like it when the rest of the garment is not skin-tight, but rather flowing to give innocent approach.
I found this picture while searching for "backless dress" and thought it was the cutest pendant necklace to wear with a backless dress! It reminds me of the little horse logo of Hermes Baby collection.
Having that said, I think this look will be great with any delicate necklace worn backwards with a v-back top/dress. Care to try this summer?

I'm on a detox. The 14 days Total Body Cleanse from Renew Life to be exact. In my quest for a "dream body", I thought I could give it a try!
See, although I'm not a believer of diet in general, this is only requires me to take some organic herbal supplements and follow a "suggested" diet, which consists of fruits, veges, fish, eggs, chicken, turkey, nuts, whole grains and "good fats". Not too bad right? I least I don't have to fast or be on some liquid diet.
Well, I soon realized that I'm not suppose to have coffee or chocolate for 14 days (yeah, I was kinda in denial)! So I "suggested" myself to give up chocolate and keep my daily dose of caffein...with the weather so hot, I don't mind having watermelon for dessert anyways.
Turns out fruits as dessert suck! Today is my 3rd day and I'm really craving for some dark chocolate...isn't it suppose to be good for the body & brain?!?

(Sass & Bide Sing, Brother! Collection)
I was first drawn to them a few years ago with their harness detailed tops and dresses. Their latest sing, brother! collection was just a extension of all the good things they do best: sequins, cutouts and asymmetric lines. Just he kinds of stuff a cool girl (yes, we've determined that earlier this week) like myself would wear!

I was just on my way to meet up with Taylor at the studio when I was told that she's at a sample sale!
"What?!?! You're at a SAMPLE SALE? What sample sale? SERGIO ROSSI?!? And you didn't bother to call me?? OK, never mind...I'll be there right now!"
And the sample sale was actually right next to our studio...how convenient! So, unfortunately for me (and fortunately for my wallet), most styles in my size were sold out. Still, I was able to leave with 3 pairs that I love (instead of 10 pairs).
The only thing better than a sample sale is a SHOE SAMPLE SALE! I love shoe therapy!

(Vogue Paris June/July 2012)
There are blogs that I follow strictly for the beautiful photography (Statement Shoes & The Pootsville Times to name a few) and others for the ingenious writing. Garance Dore falls into the latter category.
The latest post from her blog, Deep Thoughts: Body, is so funny yet true, I couldn't resist sharing with all of you:

Ok, so maybe I'm missing the mile-long legs...maybe makeup is not bare enough...maybe I still need to work on my nonchalant attitude. Maybe I'm still far from being an Alt!

To the greatest dad:
Thanks for giving me a warm bottle when I get cranky
Thanks for changing my diaper when I'm all pooped up
Thanks for playing SuperMan with me when I got bored of my iPad
Thanks for disciplining me when I bullied other kids
Thanks papa for holding me and never letting go
Happy Father's day!

My friend decided to host a slumber party at her place since the boyfriend is out of town for a week. All girls, Sex and the City (all seasons + the two movies), lots of champaign & snacks and (for some reason) an aerobics exercise tape!
It almost feels like we're 15 again! To the exception that I didn't actually sleep over...you know, mommie duty!

The name says it all: that universally flattering peachy pink with light shimmer...just the colour we get after a session of steamy sex (am I allowed to blog this?!?). Anyways, it's a cult favourite and the brand has now expanded to almost 5 products, including lipgloss and nail polish. And if that's not enough, you might want to try Super Orgasm, with extra oomph and extra gold shimmer!
