I’ve got nothing to say except I’m grateful that I can afford to replace my lost phone and continue taking pictures to blog. How frivolous and fluffy is that?

Hello! I’m back! I bought a 2nd hand iPhone 4 (not 4s) for S$300 and I’m going to try to keep up with the 1 post a day again. The camera quality is definitely poorer than the iPhone 5 and it’s rather slow to react. But hey! It does the job and I don’t have to relearn a new interface. Also, I synced my iPhone 5 with iTunes on my Macbook 4 hours before I lost the phone, so it’s still up to date. I’ll have to be extra careful with this one. Can’t afford to lose it again!

So anyway, my hair has exploded. Is it me or does my face look a lot rounder with this hairstyle? Heh… maybe it’s just me pretending that I’m not gaining weight. Who knows?

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Custom made copy dress (fabric from SPOTLIGHT Garden collection)

Outerwear: Lilac short sleeved cardigan from M&S FOR WOMEN (MARKS & SPENCER)

Accessories: Lilac ROXIE flower clip from MAD RABBIT KICKING TIGER (Gift from Junmin)

Footwear: Black ballet flats from GEOX

Not sure what the theme is but I piled on the arm swag this morning and I’m so happy! I love accessories! They are so fun! I’m glad there are lots of trendy and quirky things you can buy in Asia for cheap!

In my former job, my first Principal (or was it the VP?) told us that we shouldn’t distract the students by wearing too many accessories – I was just wearing a pair of dangling earrings, nothing more. I was quite afraid of getting into trouble and I didn’t dare accessorize (only wearing a watch or a small fine chain with a teeny-tiny pendant). I didn’t really wear bracelets or bangles (although I really love them) because I was told by a senior teacher that they make too much noise. Also students will stare at your hands when you write on the whiteboard, instead of paying attention to you. I don’t know if that’s true, what do you think?

Maybe I’m making up for it now. Today I’ve gone apeshit with the accessories! HAHA!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black tank top with red sequin hearts from NEW LOOK

Accessories: Ducks Charm Bracelet from WOODWOOD; Rock Love Music ring from INDIESIN; Stack of 7 black/bronze/silver bangles from NEW LOOK; Red & Bronze “Vivienne Westwood” bracelet from eBay; Black faux leather cuff bracelet from YOYOSTORE2010 on eBay; Black plastic bangle with ridges from THEBLACKGROUND: Black & gold skulls, lightning bolt and hearts earrings from PINKZOMBIES on; Copper chunky ring from ISLAND SHOP; Red round plastic ring from thestreetsofbangkok

Bottom: Navy stretch jeans from RIVER ISLAND

Footwear: Black ballet flats from GEOX
