It’s been almost 2 months but I’m back (for a little while anyway). If you’ve been following me on instagram, you’d know that I’ve taken ill quite a few times during the pregnancy and we’ve gone away on a 2-week roadtrip last month (our token Babymoon). I haven’t really done any outfit posts because a) lack of motivation b) it takes too much effort to put myself together when I feel icky all the time c) don’t have that many clothes for this stage of the pregnancy. So in other news, I’m almost there and the baby can come any day now if he wishes (we hope he stays in there for a few more weeks to strengthen his lungs though).

In view of the arrival of baby G, I’ve decided to try to be as frivolous as I can these last few weeks. I’ll have to swap out cute shoes and purses for a diaper bag and easy to wear foot coverings for quite a while, I suspect. T surprised me with this awesome Betsey Johnson Gumball Machine bag recently and it made me perk up! I’ve been so unenthusiastic about everything since we’ve been told that I need to eat/drink more to help G grow and increase the amniotic fluid so he can turn. It seems like the Summer heat does get to me and I eat a lot more during Winter.

So anyway, what I’m wearing today:

Top: Black cold shoulder top from eBay seller dhd-batteryshop

Accessories: Purple shades with gold “eyelash” accents from eBay seller zerouv; Black & yellow geometric acrylic statement necklace from H&M

Bag: Pink Gumball Machine bag from Betsey Johnson

Bottom: Dark-blue denim shorts from OLD NAVY Maternity

Footwear: Pink Jelly Sandals from eBay seller greenlimeorangeIMG_2256

I’ve been trying out this new look without the eyeliner and if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’d probably have seen it. I ran out of my favourite Maybelline eyeliner and they don’t sell it in the US! I’ve tried similar ones – fine, felt tip and black, but it’s just not the same so I’m just trying to do without it until my new supply comes in when my family comes and visit next…   

What I’m wearing today:

Outerwear: Red plaid shirt from H&M

Top: Crimson tank top from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Crochet rocket pop brooch from TWINKIECHAN; Set of 4 acrylic bangles from PRIMARK

Leggings: Grey/Black geometric print leggings from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Brown bow-tie ballet flats from OLD NAVY

This used to be something I do for fun because it’s so frivolous, it makes life a little less mundane. But with the recent developments with health issues, dressing up and documenting what I’m wearing has taken a back seat. While I’m not bleeding to death or suffering severe pains, there is just a significant enough discomfort for me to avoid wearing more than jumpers and leggings. It’s been a little harder to stick that smile on for the camera too.

But I’m not one to allow myself to wallow too long and to some extent, I find it rather self-indulgent too. So while I go get my blood drawn again for the 3rd time in 2 weeks for more lab work, I kinda dressed up for it today.

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.

IMG_0228The weather in Las Vegas today was awesome! Just 2 days ago on New Year’s Eve, we had a super cold front and it snowed! Where we lived, there were only flurries but other parts of the valley experienced heavier fall. And that was the day we went to the Premium Outlet North where all the shops are not connected and you had to walk in the open. My mum and sisters were bundled up with scarves, gloves and beanies! Today however, it was just warm enough to get away with a jumper and a scarf – it was about 6 degC and if you’re in the sun, it’s totally toasty.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey HEART & SOUL jumper from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Brown pleather belt from STEVE MADDEN; Pink & purple floral barrettes from H&M; Purple scarf with sequins from DELIA*S

Bag: Pink EMERALD AVENUE AMY crossbody bag from KATE SPADE

Footwear: Grey MAIA boat shoes from LeBunny Bleu

So life has gotten the better of me recently and I’m updating less here – which is a fantastic thing! After T’s Playstation Experience exhibition, I’ve been busy with my family coming over, then preparing for Christmas dinner and also getting ready for Christmas in general – writing Christmas cards, putting a list of gifts T wants to get for his family (most of them mailed out of state) etc.

But now, back to regular programming before I disappear again for the year end holidays…

OMG! How cute are my new shoes? Thank you, Le Bunny Bleu for my grey Maia Boat Shoes. Flats are great for me since I’m always pounding the pavement and on the move. I hardly have the opportunity to wear heels these days and they’re not exactly the most practical thing for a housewife who lives in the desert. Then again, while I don’t have a lot of shoes, I do not lack any cute ones either. Really happy to add these to my collection – cute colour and how sweet is their little bunny logo??

IMG_96612 posts in 1 day! OMG!!! Heh… just trying to catch up and I do like today’s ensemble. Especially my new floral crown and geometric necklace. They were recent purchases that I got from the H&M at Caesar’s Palace here in Vegas. But, here’s a little ranty tanty – my necklace was supposed to be on sale for $3 and when I got home I found that I’ve paid full price for it despite seeing the price flashed on the cash register and asking TYLER (YOU TYLER YOU!!) to double check. He told me to rest assured that he’s keeping an eye on it because it happened several times and he had to manually discount the items. I ended up paying almost $13 for it. I won’t trust you again Tyler from H&M at Caesar’s Palace! The good thing is that I like the necklace enough that $13 is no biggie.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey geometric print long-sleeved crop top from MOSSIMO SUPPLY CO

Accessories: Dark blue floral crown from H&M; Black & yellow geometric acrylic statement necklace from H&M

Bottom: Black full midi skirt from ASOS PETITE

Footwear: Black wedge pumps from ZIPIA
