An Exercise In Trivial Pursuits

Fat-shionista #500

Hey after 500 outfits posts I’m still here and guess what? I’m still fat! I do feel somewhat fitter and healthier these days though. Since I’ve started the blog, I’ve been more conscious about staying upbeat and happy – frivolity is so underrated these days. These random outfit posts have served as an outlet to express… uhm I have no idea what but it makes me so lah dee dah happy just doing it. Also, the Not Your Average Women shoots I do on my little iPhone at the interviewee’s homes are still inspiring me. I’ve quit smoking, drinking and am a vegetarian (in general… I wouldn’t reject a broth made with meat if you slaved over it and served it to me at your home or pick out bits of bacon out of a salad lovingly made just for me. I just won’t consume flesh when I have a choice.) AND… here’s the thing… I turn 35 in exactly 1 month! Yup so this is 35. Take a look, feel free to gawk.

When I was growing up, 35 meant tight short curly hair, bright red lipstick, 3 kids, a husband, 2 family cars, a mountain of bills, and no social life. Guess I kinda-sorta hit some of those “targets”. *koffkoff* Life has been kind. I’ve been blessed with so many trustworthy close friends that if in a pinch and I need to delete a porn stash (if any… no really there aren’t and this is where it gets boring right?), I can count on them not to judge me. Also I have my family (and the would-be new family stateside). My career has been exciting and I’ve loved my work as well as enjoyed the company of my colleagues. In fact, I look forward to socialising at work everyday. Best of all, I’ve never had a boss or superior I didn’t like. I feel like I’ve been riding on a high, especially with my current job.

Yes life has been good and it’s getting better, especially with T. But if you wish to help make my life more beautiful, please head over to my Amazon Wishlist and buy me something for my birthday (or save the link for Christmas, maybe?). You have a month to save up and plan (I do tweak it every so often so don’t buy just yet.) I thank you from the bottom of my heart in advance. Much love. Heh.

Anyhooos… here’s the outfit I’m wearing to commemorate my 500th post (actually it’s what I wore to work today. HEH):

Top: Black/White polka dot top from UNIQLO x Lulu Guinness

Bottom: Black custom tea length tulle skirt from MTcoffinzUnderground on etsy.com

Accessories: Black straw weave belt with gold shell buckle from FRENCH CONNECTION; Handmade paper heart “Once Upon A Time” brooch from Lost In The Forest on etsy

Footwear: Black ASHIKA SCOOPED BALLET flats from ROCKPORT

I haven’t been inspired enough in the last few days and I’ve just been plucking things off the rack without much thought. Dressing up is tough (yeah… just like walking, right left right left). I slept much better last night and only had to get up once, so I don’t look as bad as I did in the last few days.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Multi on Grey 3/4 sleeve top from FRENCH CONNECTION

Bottom: Blue ankle grazer jeans from NEXT

Accessories: Bracelet handmade by JUANITA TORTILLA; Gold bow necklace from DIVA accessories.

Footwear: Turquoise blue LEIA flats from CAMPER shoes
