So my family left last Wednesday morning and it’s been a week since they’ve been gone. Never gets any easier. I’ve washed their dirty clothes and bedlinens but I’ve left them untouched in the guest bedrooms. Basically trying not to reset the rooms so that I can hold on as long as I can. It’s been so quiet and I’ve been all mopey. Save for a short trip to the grocery store and post office, I haven’t been out all week until today. T and I went to Benjarong – a thai restaurant near our house. So yay! Not in sad leggings and baggy sweatshirts today.

This is what I wore yesterday. I was a little busy bee helping T set-up his office (mostly cleaning up after him), then I went out to get groceries. I usually only buy groceries on Wednesday unless I need to get something that’s at a really good price – yesterday it was 79c Pilsbury cake mix and Gardein for only $3.49 per pack at Smith’s. My sister Rachel wanted 10 boxes of WHITE cake mix which she uses for her rainbow cakes. Apparently they cost about $5 each in Singapore but I only managed to get 9. I guess other people had the same idea.

Other than that, T and I also went out to Mantra Masala (just about 10 minutes from our house) for Indian food before heading to catch Interstellar at Town Square. Dinner was good even though it was quite pricey for the location and we ordered only vegetarian but because it’s near where we live, we’d probably go back. T asked for 8/10 spice level but said he could probably handle 10/10. Made me so proud! Whahahaha!!!

The movie afterwards was 5/5 in my books because it’s been a long time since I’ve seen a science-fiction movie that could suspend my disbelief. Compared to Gravity, I liked the soundtrack and effects so much more. Oh and earlier this year, when T went to E3 in LA, we stayed at the Westin Bonaventure – which was where the NASA space station in Interstellar was supposed to be. It was so obvious because I thought the hotel was quite weird and creepy to begin with. It had strange pods and all these concrete upper floors.
IMG_9080So anyway, this is what I wore yesterday:

Top: Heather Grey Pocket-Front Cropped Tee from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Pink bangle from SONIA RYKIEL POUR H&M; Pastel floral necklace (gift from T)

Bottom: Lilac with blue dots ROCKSTAR skinny jeans from OLD NAVY

Bag: Beige bag with Pink bow from BETSEY JOHNSON

Footwear: Dark Beige moto boots from MADDEN GIRL

IMG_9039IMG_9037So I was off to the Post Office again today. I’ve been selling on Vinted and so far, I’ve made about 5 sales. I like the Post Office on Russell. I go there often because I also send things out for T. It gives me the opportunity to get out of the house, you know?

Anyway, this is what I wore today:

Top: Grey striped 3/4 sleeved boatneck sweater from NEW LOOK

Outerwear: Light grey cropped motorcycle jacket from ADIDAS ORIGINALS

Accessories: Blue and Pink jewel statement necklace (gift from Pris Boh)

Bottom: Black full midi skirt from ASOS PETITE

Bag: Pink bow and black trim beige bag from BETSEY JOHNSON

Footwear: Tan Bow-Tie Ballet Flats from OLD NAVY

This pineapple-print skirt has been worn only a handful of times since I bought it. I’m thinking of doing a clear-out sale on eBay to sell some of my things – maybe about 20-25 items. I have a lot of clothes that I don’t wear as much, and are no longer suitable for my lifestyle. $5 and $10 items – clothes and accessories. Maybe. I’m not sure yet. But if I do, this pineapple skirt should go because I think someone else would use it more often than I do. Also, I could use some shopping money for winter clothes.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey tank top from OLD NAVY

Outerwear: Pink 3/4 sleeve cardigan from WAREHOUSE

Accessories: Rainbow-coloured felt button necklace from MIAOW & SQUEAK; Natural bamboo weave bangle from THE ISLAND SHOP

Bag: White pleather bag with pink bow and black accents from BETSEY JOHNSON

Footwear: Black gladiator wedges from KENNETH COLE REACTION

IMG_7950So the secret to taking good selfies is a weird angle huh? I can’t see my double chin in this photo! You know, I have to say that while I like looking at those posed or curated blogs/instagram pictures, it’s a little disconcerting when the person is unrecognisable. I see that happening to a lot of wedding photos – the contouring, falsies, air-brushing and what-not. Why do you want to not look like yourself so much? Maybe a little tweaking or colour-balancing is okay but I’ve seen pictures where their entire face shape is different. I do almost no editing because I’m just lazy like that. These days, if there is an “enhance” button, I’d click it. If not, you get the actual photo – warts and all. Besides, I don’t drive to the park to look wistfully  just so I can take mood pictures with nice backgrounds.

Anyway, I have a huge head. I don’t like taking photos with the myspace-style angle (aka top angle down) if I can help it. When T does it, he always makes me look like a bobble-head doll because he’s almost an entire foot taller than I am. But when I get him to put the camera nearer his navel, the photos come out all blurry or weirder. HAHAHA!IMG_7959

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Neon Yellow Fit & Flare Ponte-Tank Dress from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Rainbow-coloured felt button necklace from MIAOW & SQUEAK; Black dangly shards earrings from somestreetstallinTaiwan

Bag: White pleather bag with pink bow and black accents from BETSEY JOHNSON

Footwear: Black strappy heels from KIMCHI BLUE (URBAN OUTFITTERS)
