{ ring! ring! } June 26, 2009

Somedays, I wish to wear a simple ring…a casual fun finger-wear that I can touch and feel when I’m thinking on bus trips, or mindlessly finger as I gaze out of the window at the moving scenery.

These simple creations are grouped together for easy viewing. Price stated is for each ring. Do let me know which ring you fancy in each picture. All rings have an adjustable nickel-free band if you are sensitive to this metal.

{ earth, water & flowers } April 22, 2009

 

This title bears a tad resemblance to “Earth, Wind & Fire” right? Ok, a tiny tad. More aptly, it’s this week’s upload on flower-themed creations with this month’s dedication to Eco-Chic.

 

Today is Earth Day! And what a beautiful reminder to do good to the place we share. To continue the thread on sharing, here’s a simple picture I took of a dainty little yellow flower by the roadside. I’m just hoping that wildflowers will not disappear or that flowers have shorter blooming cycles since winters are longer and spring is late to come. Don’t you think such simple, spontaneous beauty is inspiring and it would be truly disastrous to not find them anymore on the streets, growing by the corners, waiting to be discovered and admired?

Green Tip: I save water (and money!) at home using the water leftover from rice to water my flowers and plants every day. It’s really good for them as the water contains the “polished-off” nutrients from the rice and thus a natural fertilizer! Totally organic! You can also use used grounded coffee or tea leaves after your daily cuppa. And those who come to my little apartment thought, “Green fingers”. But the secret is out!

 

For today (April 22), don’t drive. Take public transport. Or do something “green” that you don’t usually do. Join the eco-movement! I’m sure, like me, you would like to admire these floral blessings. pling‘s little dedication…hope you like them!

We have always been inspired by Nature, one of God’s many gifts to mankind. Besides animals, films and music, pling has looked to flora and its faithful companion, butterflies, for inspiration. In one of my travels, Rome in particular (of which I’m sharing 2 of my pictures with you here), I was lucky to chance upon a huge garden of lavender in front of Galleria Borghese (a museum) and a tiny garden of wild flowers on a hillside, facing the ancient city.

 

 

Such was the beauty around us! If only we can always find time to stop and admire them…well, at least with these accessories, we can wear them and borrow Nature’s beauty to adorn our everyday lives.

Let’s play house!

 

These precious handmade necklaces conjure images of staying at home and doing things that you love! Some of the necklaces are toys themselves! You can have fun while wearing them out. Show off to your friends and let them have a go at it too! A gleeful attitude is all you need to wear them. So, deck out in your favorite pair of jeans and let them speak for your day! Afterall, what’s life without a little bit of humor and jolly playtime?

{ 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!

Go on a nostalgic journey when you were still a little girl…ogling at granny’s gleaming gold handbag and those large frame spectacles that are making a comeback now…dialing a rotary phone that’s oh-so-cool and going ‘Hello! Hello!’ while cradling the handset that was too big for your tiny hands…hiding under the soft, warm patchwork blanket that mummy or granny has made specially for you.

 

These retro accessories remind you of a bygone era. I love retro and vintage clothings, home decor and lifestyle items. Why? Because they have history. Because they have a story to tell. Because they are usually colorful, bold, subtly embellished and absolutely cool.

 

How then do you wear these retro accessories? The key is keeping the rest of your outfit simple. Not too much bling-bling or complicated prints on the rest of your outerwear or you risk looking like a X’mas tree. Let the piece be the statement itself. And most importantly, wear it with attitude!

 

Spice up your style, get creative now and let’s go retro!
