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.

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

IMG_9659Back to regular programming! Frivolous posts and all!

I spent the last weekend helping T at his booth at the 1st ever Playstation Experience. While he’s done several trade shows this year, this is the first one in our home state. I was honestly very skeptical before the event because there wasn’t very much hype unlike E3 or PAX. We were however kept sufficiently busy with a steady stream of people at the 2 terminals trying out the Axiom Verge demo. It also helped that T’s new business manager Dan lined up a lot of press coverage. It’s their first event together since signing a contract several months ago. I’m very grateful for all the help that has been rendered and I do see my husband being a little less nervous because really, all he wants to do is to make the game. We’re both very relieved that someone really connected is there to take care of the PR and design business strategies.

So anyway, T’s game has a playable demo in stores across the US right now. Stores like Target, Best Buy and Gamestop with Sony Playstation kiosks would have it! EXCITING TIMES!

And this was what I wore to yesterday when we picked Dan up from his hotel and sent him to the airport:

Dress: Mint Green Louisa dress from Hell Bunny

Outerwear: Blue denim jacket from High Sierra

Accessories: Gold & lilac statement necklace from H&M; Bright pink floral headband from ASOS

Leggings: Red opaque leggings from Uniqlo

Footwear: Dark beige moto boots from MADDEN GIRL
