Of Chocolates, Cookies & Candies

The Internet is one crazy playground. Not only are retail fixes mere clicks away (poor wallets) and infinite information within one’s grasp, the world wide web with its vast expanse and reach is quite likely also the most efficient enabler when it comes to reconnecting one with one’s past. As it did in the case of Marlene and me. You see, Marlene was my classmate for the most part of (our Malaysian equivalent of) elementary as well as high schools. At the time, we weren’t particularly close. I was intimidated by her confidence and gungho personality while she, well, let’s just say I was neither the easiest nor nicest person to get to know. In fact, I’ve been told I was quite the snotty bitch brat back then (not by Marlene, of course). Suffice to say, we had our individual cliques and that was that. Years later, as in two years ago, I stumbled upon her super duper oh so fabulous blog, Chocolates Cookies & Candies and immediately reached out to Marlene whom, by this …

And The Award Goes To … Me!!!

There are awards and there are awards. There are those which, to be perfectly candid, irk me in their somewhat pesky nature, not dissimilar to chain letters and mass advertisements. And there are still others which appear wishy washy and dubious. Today, however, I’m talking about the Versatile Blogger Award which, my friends, is no insipid title of a suspicious nature.

Share 7 things about yourself (perhaps little known facts?). 3. Name 10 bloggers you’ve recently discovered or perhaps already follow regularly. 4. Nominate those 10 bloggers in turn for the Versatile Blogger Award. 7 things about myself 1. I’m ambidextrous. Growing up, I figured if I learned to write with both hands, should I …

2012 ~ Rewind, Recap, Review

This is the time of the year when many a blogger would post a montage of her (or his) personal favourites spanning 2012.  Since I’ve only been at this for a scant two months, I’ve barely sufficient outfit posts to fill up a week let alone encapsulate an entire year SO I’m taking an entirely different route to this.  I’m going to feature the outfits I like best from twelve random bloggers.  Some are a tad more hyped than the others, and certainly their aesthetics run the gamut but all are irrefutably talented and adventurous and most deserving of limelight. So here we go, in no particular order:- Adeline Rapon pulls off mixed prints with panache which, oftentimes (but not always), only the French can display.  Her style is so distinct and whimsical yet not so out there that I can’t imagine myself wearing parts of the outfit, or, the outfit in its entirety, for that matter.  And there’s also just a nuance of vintage that makes her fashion compositions so fresh (contradictory, I know). …
