{ clouds and tooth } September 16, 2009


I remember when I first lost my first tooth that it was a cloudy day. I was standing by the gate, and staring at the sky with a string from my mouth. Being too afraid to visit the dentist, my traditional parents did the traditional thing of tying my very shaky tooth to a string. The other end was tied to the grilles of the gate and with one fast motion, my Daddy pulled open the gate and I remembered wailing like a little baby. Luckily, my Daddy was there to comfort me and gave me a cotton wool to bite on.


The evening then saw showers and a nice balmy night for sleeping (without a threatening tooth). Now, I still look at the clouds and think of that day (aka my 1st experience of extracting a tooth).


I wish it will rain soon…

{ little princess } March 17, 2008

There’s always a little princess in all of us, I believe. No matter how weathered we may have become surviving in this societal jungle, we once were (and still are, for some) Daddy’s and Mummy’s little princess. An endearing title that some lovers adopt for their gentler other half.


Be it the elegant Princess Di in real life, the gentle Snow White in fairytale land, the sci-fi Princess Leia in Star Wars, or the bubbly Princess Consort in Princess Hours, a girl can most definitely find a princess to identify with…even if it only means imagining being surrounded by bling and donning the much coveted crown!

{ retro gold } January 25, 2008


A splash of vintage gold goes a long way this season, what with yellow, petrol blue & neon being the must-have hues this year. With these statement pieces in retro gold, you can inject a dose of the seventies hell-may-care glamor or take a romantic literal lead into the imagery depicted on the necklace.


And because these necklaces are what every cool girl has (at least one!), I’m bringing them back as must-have extras for dressing up your plains, jeans or simply adding an attitude to your color combination. To avoid: dangling earrings when donning these necklaces. (They are eye-catching enough!) Simple studs will do. Now, isn’t that easy? It’s wear and go!
