Got this from Red Carpet Fashion Awards. Serena is reverting back to her old ways and becoming a paparazzi magnet?

Material Girl

with one comment

This is the dress I REALLY want but can’t afford. (It’s not that expensive, just out of my price range currently!)

These are the dresses I REALLY want but cannot bear to spend the money.

Losing Weight

leave a comment »

I’ve recently tried to diet (yes, that damned word!) as I gained a considerably amount of weight when I joined the workforce. The inactivity, drinkings, binging and always justifying comfort food made me a hefty girl. I am not those lucky few who can eat anything, don’t exercise and not put on weight. Well, I was fine with the extra weight I put on, my boyfriend wasn’t and so was others. Someone called me a “lump of flabs”, “plump  and chubby” (bitch!) ; it is also not easy being friends who are all skinny and hot.

Well,  my weight is permanently fixed at 57 kg and I can go no lower, only more. BOOHOO! So, my aim was to just lose the extra I gained. I think with all dieting, it has to be a healthy balance of exercising and controlling your food intake. I’m not a nutritionist, I believe in enjoying my food and I tend to gorge myself silly at times. But for the sake of fitting into my clothes, I have to watch what I eat. I am a strong believer of exercising too, I cannot stress this enough. I don’t believe in starvation.

So, I’m back to my pre-work weight of 57 now, lost a couple of kilos in the past month! Was gonna write on what I did, without suffering or beating myself up, but wasn’t sure if it was right.I mean, I’m no Gisele or some skinny model but I do truly enjoy my healthier lifestyle.

Probably will write on a easy, foolproof salad recipe and the most effective way to lose weight from jogging.

Anna Wintour on Letterman

leave a comment »

Anna Wintour is absolutely amazing, I’m in love with her. She has this icy-queen reputation and describes herself as…. “lukewarm royalty from outerspace”. She’s funny, sweet and very inspiring.

“I’m very decisive and I try to give very clear decisions for the people I am working with. So sometimes, they’re not getting the answers they’re looking for.”

Can’t wait for the September issue!

Dream wedding

with 2 comments

This is my dream wedding, it’s perfect! By the sea, casual, relaxed and small. SMALL! I don’t want my wedding to be a circus or a reunion. I want it to be intimate and sweet, probably just 30-50 people? How about you? How will you want your wedding to be?
