How I Dress My Inner Child

How I Dress My Inner Child

  Hello there inner child, Can you hear me calling you??   It’s so nice to be back writing on the blog (and jumpstarting things with a post on how I dress my inner child).  I honestly can’t even recall the last time I posted something (wait, I do, it’s been seven long months).  I could tell you that a million things have happened since we last spoke, causing my extended absence  but that’d be an excuse.  The truth is I simply haven’t been able to write.  Each time I attempted to articulate my thoughts, I’d sit in front of my laptop and simply stare at the blank screen until I gave up.  I kept telling myself to step away.  To come back to it later when I felt as though I had something authentic to say.  And that was so wrong.  What I really ought to have done was to sit my ass down, and type away.  Yes, just that.  Type away, regardless of what nonsense I’d spew and allow the creative bits of …

Doing The Ombré

I used Nyx Alecto to fill in the rest of the lips and then added a dash of Nyx Hubba Bubba Waouh in the centre of both upper as well as lower lips for contrast. Make sure everything is blended nicely. Tadah 🙂 it took less than five minute to create this look. Is the ombré effect something you’d fancy? And try? …

Oh Me, Oh My Malaysia, Making Me Proud

It would appear that fashion has (finally) permeated the walls of what was once an incredibly conservative, tight-lipped community and I. Am. Glad. Stunning ~ photo courtesy of 4Eyes. And all the following images, proudly showcasing a fondness for the flamboyant and a healthy addiction to shoe porn, were taken from homegrown street style blog, Garbagelapsap.  So proud. Makes my heart go boom boopity boom. Happy.  Very happy. Love, SG

Majulah Malaysia

I was born in Kuching, the capital city of Sarawak which is one of the 12 states making up the country of Malaysia ~ a thriving but small nation located in the heart of South East Asia.  Yes, born and bred and (for the most part) proud of it. This is such a moment. Street style a la Malaysian.   Love, SG
