Remember that time I forgot my dad’s birthday?
Oh right that was two days ago.
So I may have come home from dance on Thursday to my wonderful father making dinner for my mum and I, when my mum said “have you wished your dad happy birthday yet?”
Infact, I had completely forgotten! Giftless, cardless, and a horrible daughter, today I set myself on a mission to make it up to him. Okay, that may have overhyped it… just cupcakes guys, no flash mobs or laser light shows.
We all go through stressful times in our lives. Usually, exams are a blast for me (‘study’ periods, time off school, waking up late and having to focus for only a few hours :’) ), however this time around, that hasn’t been the case. I can’t quite describe why, but I’ve been swaying back and forth across the border between “life is great” and “what’s the point in anything” for a while now. I guess it’s mix of everything, newly frequent dance classes, real exams that mean [very little but still] something, a quest to constantly be constructive and productive, and a very foggy, hormonal, not-yet-developed teenage brain.
I wouldn’t describe this situation as feeling like chaos, or a cliché whirlwind. Instead, it feels more like a wasteland. Like piles of faded-brown scraps and debris littered across a desert, as far as the eye can see; and your job is to pick up each piece of rusted metal, every last sundried magazine clipping. It feels like life is one big task that seems so impossible, filled with thousands and thousands of little things we must do… Yeah, the teenage heart ain’t fond of responsibility.
Despite it all (oh, this difficult first world teenage life we live), we push through; and here are somethings that have been keeping sane/happy/alive: Continue reading
To defend my lack of studying, I’ve been coming up with some jewellery designs over the weekend to make me feel more ‘productive’. Though I didn’t come up with an abundance of designs, it gave me an awesome opportunity to continue practicing shooting in manual mode on my camera.
Step 1: Survive the global apocalypse of the planet Earth
Step 2: Find a zombie (that shouldn’t be difficult)
Step 3: Get bitten by said zombie
Note: if living in the pre-apocalyptic era, simply follow this tutorial for similar results- minus the living-dead part.
Icing made of Milo. Made liquid by some milk. In less than a minute.
the future is now.
Ahhhh the summer time. For most, that means vacations, beach time, and finally getting to take off layers of clothing.
In Singapore, where its 25-30° C on a regular basis during ‘winter’, summer means more humidity, more heat, and more hoes wearing even less clothing. #croppedcroptops
And more sweat.
which you can see in the video.
In all seriousness I hope you’re all having a fantastic summer (or winter, which I’m currently experiencing in New Zealand- my first winter in two years!) and you’re enjoying life in every aspect!
This spring we’ve been seeing the traditional florals in cooler, resort-style shades as well as black and white colour-blocking and geometric prints. Sooo, I came up with a fairly simple nail design inspired by this spring’s trends.
If you don’t have a striper brush or dotting tool, watch the linked cutepolish videos for a full DIY tutorial!
Much love & happy painting ☻

The last favs video of 2013, uploaded on the last day of 2013.
Aaand as promised, here are some additional faves ^^
Oh my, who knew a warmer screen could improve your life so much! This nifty *free* app thingy adjusts your
computer screen so that when the sun sets in the country you’re in, you’re screen has a warm orange-y tint. At first it’s a bit strange, but you’ll soon realise how much stress and strain on your eyes is relieved during your late night interweb adventures. It doesn’t sound amazing, but just try it and your life will be a little bit better. Trust me.
There isn’t much else I’ve been loving around the web, except for a few imgur posts (here and here), including this 2013-made classic.
I hope you’ve all had a fantabulous 2013, and if not, we’re in 2014 now. Everything that’s happened this past year is behind us. Apologise to who you need to apologise to, forgive who you need to forgive- even if it’s yourself- and start doing what you know in your heart you should be doing.
wow so deep
Here’s to another adventure!
Much love & God bless,
