The look - Lace, Red, Leopard

Zara lace top, leopard flats and denim shorts; Celine Nano in red; Kenneth Jay Lane necklace

Hung out with husband and Little A all afternoon on Sunday (yesterday). We went to have Japanese lunch at Senayan and strolling around Senayan City in search for.. nothing in particular actually. It was fun though. We got Little A a construction vehicle toy, which he absolutely love other than Lego. No workout this weekend, I feel like I've cheated when I had such a big and unhealthy meal throughout the whole weekend. Oh well, tomorrow is another day.

Spring 2013: Mod and Bold

Two trends for Spring 2013 are Bold Black-and-White and Mod. While I'm not one to wear 'current trend' head-to-toe, I find this particular piece captures the whole idea of the two trends I'm talking about:

The stripes skinnies! (Although I'm more inspired with Beetlejuice with this piece.. I love it!) They're bold black-and-white, with a stripey mod accent to it. Perfect.

Get the look below from ASOS.com 

Here's my take on the trend. Mine (below) is from Zara.
H&M t-shirt, En Garde Artilleries necklace, ASOS flat shoes

Moi?



People say the above cartoon version of me looked so much like the real thing it's not even funny. Haha. What do you think?

Valentine's Day

One thing you must know about my life partner aka the husband is that he's not the typical cheeseball romantic kind of guy. So it is out of his character to be the 'rose and chocolate gift bearing' guy. But, when he surprises me with little gifts which I know he put a lot of thought into, I appreciate and loved it even more.

We're also not one of those couples who celebrates Valentine's Day religiously. Oh no. Don't give me flowers and chocolates on Valentine's Day, I'll shoot you with cheeseball arrow. Anyway, this particular Valentine's Day I decided to make a Red Velvet Brownies with White Chocolate Buttercream frosting for him (part of the reason is because I wanted to try a new recipe for my baking business' new menu and who would be better to be the guinea pig other than the husband?) cut heart-shaped on behalf of the 'special' day.
 

But lo and behold! When husband got home last night (oh, he said the brownies were absolutely delicious, so it's a go for our new menu.. check out Little Sparrow for more info) he brought me a cute little gift, which to my surprise, something I've been wanting for quite some time..



Thank you, husband! What a wonderful surprise ^^ going to the moon and back just doesn't really add up to how much I love you!

Life is Kind

Wow. It's February already. Through all the ups and downs that I have to face starting 2013, I still am grateful for everything that we may or may have not yet accomplished. I still am super grateful for everything that we have. I still am absolutely grateful for the beautiful life that we get to breathe in every day. I am super grateful to have a loving husband, amazingly smart and adorable son, awesome parents and brother, wonderful best friends..

I'm hoping (and crossing my fingers) that 2013 will be an eventful and wonderful year for us. There are still so many amazing things to look forward too. And bless us, we are fortunate enough to (insya allah) get to travel abroad this summer (crossing fingers so tight my veins hurt). The 'when' and 'where', I won't reveal too much now because I believe in that whole "I don't want to jinx it." Haha.
