I’m typing this post out as I wait my turn at my neighbourhood clinic. I’m not at work today and I had a really bad night yesterday. I had these sharp pains in my lower abdomen (not like the menstrual ones) and now I feel like I did 100000 sit-ups yesterday. Miserable. I don’t know what exactly happened. A case of too much cake?? Highly likely since I’ve been warned my low HCI levels.

Anyway yesterday I got showered, dressed and out of the house in 15minutes! This is what I look like on lazy crazy unplanned days:

Top: Dark Olive Green pleated ruffle top from CLUB MONACO

Accessories: Green and silver Multi-strand necklace from DOROTHY PERKINS

Bottoms: Blue ankle grazer jeans from NEXT

Bag: Black quilted clutch wallet from RIPCURL

Footwear: Gold ballet flats with bow from PRETTYFIT

Hello there. It’s been a while. Work’s been busy busy busy and I reckon it’ll stay this way for a while longer. In the meantime, I’m going to try to catch up on some blogging.

The GREAT SINGAPORE SALE has started and it’s evil. I’ve spent $21 on a Ripcurl clutch purse, $50 on bras & panties at LA SENZA, and $50 on accessories at DIVA. The discounts were too awesome to refuse. Damn.

Swingsation!

I got my make-up pouch last night and I haven’t decided what to do with it. Currently it holds a whole bunch of make-up but I might use it as a lunch bag or even better… A clutch for casual going out days. It’s really well-made and I’ve shown them to my colleagues today. The consensus is oooohnaaaaise!! (Thanks to Gina Koh for taking this photo of the Mosaic team)

The picture was screened really well and it’s really clear. I don’t normally carry so much make-up with me but I just tried putting in many things to see how much this bag holds. If I use it as a make-up bag, I’ll probably leave it for when I travel. It will also double up as something to keep home close to me when I’m thousands of miles away – i.e. the photo in front. I can’t decide! This bag has multiple usages!

Thanks Nina for sending me this bag!

My make-up pouch is awesome! It holds A LOT!!
