I must share them with Ricky and not gobble them all up in one go ><

Ella also got me more bling for my bracelet.  I think it’s pretty much full now woot!

Christmas and New Year

January 2, 2011 6 comments

Hope everyone had a great Christmas and new year!!! Mine was very quiet this year, though my whole weekend was full of meaty BBQ goodness!  Too bad I didn’t bring my camera, and photos taken by other people have not yet been uploaded.  I think I really should invest in a new camera…

On another note…

My 13″ Cambridge Satchel Bag arrived at Ricky’s doorstep just after Christmas!!

Thanks so much ^^

I first saw the Cambridge satchel on Joey’s blog, and naturally I went and browsed through the website, and became mesmerized by the  purple.  I love purple!!!!

I showed Ricky, who goes “Yeah that’s nice.  You want it?  This can be your Christmas present”.  LOLS And so that was that, I took up the offer and now I have one, with “Ah Mi” printed on it hahahaha

I took so long thinking whether to get the 11″ or 13″, but Ricky insisted I should get the 13″.  It’s a really good size, as you can see it’s slightly bigger than a medium sized Gucci.  The leather is soooo beautiful and RAW.

With love from Secret Santas, and the family.

Of course the festivities wouldn’t be complete without alcohol right?

Ella was very generous and gave us some plum wine, though we shall save this for another day.. it’s just too precious to waste…teehee

Now I have a more colourful Pandora as well ^^

I received this growing wish flower from Secret Santa, and thought it was really interesting.

My growing crystal 🙂 It’s sprouting after just 24 hours!

It takes 12-15 days to reach full size though.

You should take some time to open this pic up and read the instruction.  It’s so FOB HAHA

Some more additions into my daily life :)

December 8, 2010 1 comment

My glasses arrived today 🙂  Though my contacts won’t arrive until tomorrow, while I’m at work =.=

Another pair of Prada’s, this time not so bling.

Makes me look so “I am so smart, S.M.R.T” doh

Ella gave me an early Christmas present.

Charms for my bracelet!!!  *Loves* ^^

I also got myself some make up brushes.  I don’t want to spend too much on them because I know I won’t look after them, and I have no use for good foundation brushes that don’t streak because I don’t use foundation anyway.  However, I heard their foundation and concealer brushes were pretty good too 🙂

I kept eyeing these Ecotool ones for blush and eye make up until I finally bought them today.

6 piece eye brush set.

Comes with highlight, crease, shade, smudge and blend brush.  It’s even embossed into the handle!  Not many brushes have that!

Ecotools joined with Alicia Silverstone, best known to me for her role in:

CLUELESS!! OMFG best movie of my childhood apart from Sound of Music.  I need to watch that movie again… like.. whatever. ( pic taken from igossip.com)

Anyway the blush and finishing brushes are super soft, no wonder bloggers rave about these.  They really are a bang for your buck.

Vivian the receptionist at work got me all into studs because she loves jewelry while I love eye make up.  Too bad it’s harder for her to get into make up than it is for me to get into jewelry =.=

She helped me buy the 2 on the sides.  So pretty!!  I bought the black pearls today.  I always held off buying jewelry because they get a bit exi for me since I get allergic to anything other than surgical posts, 925 silver or 18k gold.. My neck even dies from Swarovski stuff =.= Sort of runs in the family… Then Vivian goes and tells me she buys them on sale at the jewelers and online for cheap.. gah..

Nevertheless, I finally have studs 😀

Weekends

September 5, 2010 1 comment

Some random pics while bumming with Ricky.  Ricky was trying to copy my tired face BUAHAHAHAHAHA looks more like pouting!

I also recently cut and dyed my hair at Boom.  I’ve been wanting to try ash brown for quite a while but never really got around to it until that day.  Result is sort of weird?  I asked for a not-too-light ash brown (since I need to work and stuff) and I think I got what I asked for in a strange way XD

The colour shines a million different colours depending on the lighting.  In the picture it does look lighter and ashier, but in real life, it looks brown and a nice brown at that.  You can only see the ash under flourescent lighting.   I also think that my tips are dead (not from the dye but from before) and the colour doesn’t look as strong at the tips… then again this could also be because of the lighting issue.  I think this will fade to an orangey brown.

I also got around to cleaning my silver jewellery, after learning that my sister cleans hers quite often (and she never cleans!!! XD)!

all clean 🙂

I also had a very very tarnished piece that I was determined to make shine again

Look at that!!

This silver polishing powder I got for free from a silver jewellery shop in Tsuen Wan HK saved it 😀

Just put some powder onto a towel and rub.  All the tarnish goes away 🙂

Ingredients are mostly calcium bicarbonate and talc

I was given this by Ricky’s mum and it has powder on a cotton wipe.  It’s pretty good as well and has lasted me a long time with 25 wipes.  It’s pretty good but the powder isn’t as strong as the other stuff since it couldn’t save my tarnished necklace

Ricky’s mum also got this one for me.  It’s good for just dull jewellery but doesn’t do anything for tarnished jewellery

Tada!! After a good 20 minutes of rubbing, then some soaking, and finishing off with some rubbing again, good as new!

My new product

August 25, 2009 2 comments

Slowly recovering from my cold, but still suffering from residual hayfever-like symptoms!

Just thought I might like to share my newest creation that I made while at work ahahaha.. ~5 hour project!!  It’s been a while since I’ve made jewellery.  One thing I love about making these things are that I can safely say it’s ME!  100% individual design that symbolizes myself~.  Be it ditsy, dumb or vain 😛

I can’t say they are well made, they are quite.. how to say.. unrefined.  Definitely can’t sell them anytime soon just because of lack of quality control + creativity XD  I would like to learn how to make jewellery properly one day, but for now I shall just have to make do with what I have taught myself.

P1010998

Let’s just hope the design holds up when I wear it.  I still have the finishing clip to add onto it, shall do it when I have time.
