My Valentine's Gifts - Heart Shape Necklace and Heart Shape Starbucks Card



As years go by it has become less and less significant to celebrate special days: birthdays, Halloween, anniversaries, and Valentine's day.

I'm not sure if I'm getting boring or older. -.-

Part of me felt I could still get excited over these celebrations if I inject some passion into my life. Or maybe if I have an enthusiastic partner who share the same passion as I once did for all these special days. But then people change and so did lifestyles.

So it's in a way really sweet to still receive some special Valentine's gifts this year. Unexpected gifts are always the most welcomed.

I receive this sweet sterling silver Valentine's necklace from Ollie Jewellery.

Love the packaging






The Two Hearts Pendant is super cute, very refined and delicate. Shiny and not cheap looking at all. The pendant is only priced at RM65 at the moment, a further RM20 discount from its original price.

If you're looking to buy some last minute Valentine's gift for your love ones and girlfriends, consider buying from Ollie Jewellery. They even ship free for anything above RM100. And isn't silver all the rave at the moment. Honestly,  it's really affordable for the quality you're buying considering how much more the market is charging for silver jewelleries these days.

Speaking of heart shape item, I'm really physced about receiving this year's Valentine's edition Starbucks card. It's literally heart shaped and it's small and comes with a hole so you can attach it to your keys.

They have four designs and the quote "I [HEART] YOU" is sold out in most branches. You would have to top up a minimum of RM100 for each card so getting all four of them was way too expensive. I was looking for it in various branches when I received this as a gift. Thank you xoxo!



Last I checked Plaza Mont Kiara's Starbucks still has some stock of "I [HEART] YOU" cards left. No, Starbucks didn't give me anything to write this, I just like collecting some of their seasonal cards.

[Hippie] Feather and Jumpsuit

Nicolekiss Hippie OOTD

Jumpsuits are one of my absolute favorites attire to go to whenever I ran out of ideas what to wear. It fits all themes casual, semi-casual, casual formal and downright laid-back.

I pair this ghetto with a elastic headband with two gorgeous strings of feathers that fall from either side of my temples.

[Ash Blonde] The Straight, The Curly and The Not-So-Neither

After being really blonde, I went through another bleaching session again and this time came out an ash blonde. Still a lot more work to go but it was getting there.

The Straight
Ootd. New look. New hair. #haircolor #ootd #lotd #outfitoftheday #lookoftheday #fashion #missselfridge #ashblonde #grey
This hairstyle requires so much blow-drying it's only worth it when you visit the salon and get people to do it for you.

The Curly

Under certain light it looked ash blonde, but when exposed to sunlight it looked bright orange blonde.
The curl I was playing with here was inspired by the long bob lots of Japanese girls have in Tokyo. In fact, it was what inspired me to cut my hair in the first place.

Le blonde is going to Japan. I can't wait. #giro #tokyo #sushi #japan #japanese #japanesefood #hokkaido #kanto #kansai #travel #kobe #kyoto #osaka #yokohama #takayama #sapporo #nara #fuji #mountfuji #onsen #ryokan #kaiseki

My poor attempt to blow-dry my hair straight. I wasn't very determined at it. So it came out not so curly, not so straight.

[Blondie in Me] Floral, Lace and Elegance

It was a point in time when my hair was going through a bleaching process that would take several months before it would reach the color I desire, which was somewhere between ash, ash blonde and platinum blonde.

So for a period of time I had to be a blonde, which I didn't really like because it was difficult for me to pull off elegance and sophistication in a bright orange blonde hair.

But not for wanting to try. So these are my OOTDs in those times.

Tried out a dress from #jaspal. So in love with it. But didn't buy it cause I'm trying to save. #goodgirl #selfpat #shopping #fashion #instafashion
Not so much an ootd. I tried this dress out in Jaspal and thought it's worth a blog feature. I didn't buy it because I was punishing myself after spending too much money; still, it's such a lovely dress.

Arrival of Godiva - Winter Gold Hamster

I've always had commitment issues when it comes to personally owning a pet,. So far the pets I have owned have been taken care of by my love ones; even the tropical fish I once owned.

Mainly it's by my fear of taking care of another living thing and failing miserably.
Like my mom has always suggested, I can hardly take care of myself. :S

Then there's the travelling life I had been living in the past for many years. I was never in the same place long enough to keep in touch with a friend, how was I supposed to keep a pet alive?

Over the past three years, gradually, at least, I have toned down my travelling a whole lot; and was able to form stronger bonds with my couch at home. So was the story of the arrival of Godiva.

I got a new pet! Everybody, meet Godiva. 1 mth old Winter Gold hammy. #cute #cuteoverload #hamster #wintergold #godiva #pet

Yes she's small. But you have no idea how big of an impact this decision was for me. For the first time in my life, I have to take care of someone else other than me. To nurture it, feed it, love it and be there for it. It might not be much for most of you out there who have owned a pet since the age of 11; but THIS IS A HUGE DEAL FOR ME.

Godiva: Mommy, I'm shy. I don't want to take photos. *hide* *run* *twist*  #hammy #hamster #hammie #pet

Cute overload. Godiva is a girl... #wintergold #hamster #godiva #cute #cuteoverload #nofilter #noedit #nomakeup

So in love with this little furball. Grrrr... *cubit*

These photos were taken when Godiva was one month old.
She's this tiny winter gold hammy that's so damn adorable.
Right about this she's three weeks old and has this greyish/blackish hair spot growing out of her; I read online that it's caused by breeders breeding it with Winter Grey hamsters. :(

But she's still so adorable despite the grey patch and loving her indefinitely. I feel like I'm going to be a bad mother because I'm spoiling her so much already.

So far I've gotten her a running ball, an OVO home complete with a tiny house inside, a running wheel; other than hammy dry food, I also got her popcorn (that I popped for her every other day), pumpkin seeds, fruits, berries, grapes, bag of peanuts (solely for her)

This outfit is about connecting with your inner child innocence, or dressing like one. Another representation of innocence is Eve (as in Adam and Eve) who has always been portrayed as a feminine figure with curly blonde hair.

Stick to white or nude color that symbolizes purity.

Gypsy Headband: How to Wear Your Hobo Headpiece

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

Gypsy headband requires a certain style to pull off.

You can go for the generic gypsy style which usually consists of loose blouse/top and pale or pastel colors. Make-up that not too heavy, focus on eyeliners and nude-based eye shadow (coffee, brown).
Opt for peach or nude blush depending on your skin tone.

If you're up for it, set your hair to amp up the mood. I'm using Tsuyagla Wave from Kumiko (Popteen Star Model) to create a mermaid wave with my ash blonde hair.

If you've noticed, I had the headband changed because there was a missing feather.
