[Fashion]How to Pack Light And Still Look Stylish

4 Dec

Hello December!

Year end is always fun. For it’s filled with travel plans, parties, family dinners, friends gatherings and more… Now how do you pack it all and look fabulous without checking in too much luggages?

Pick the “Multi-functional” Pieces

Pick the basics that can go well with almost anything. For example, pack a black dress that can be dressed up or down. Pair it with a fancy coat and a pair of red heels for a nice dinner; swap the heels with a comfortable pair of black flats and a wool sweater for travel or hanging out with family.

Follow The Same Colour Range

Pack majority of your clothing in the same colour range, so it will be easy to mix and match them with one another. You can also add colours that are within the same palette. For example, pick mostly black and white items and add some accessories that brings out your personality.

Anti-Wrinkle

Technology has created fabrics that are almost impossible to wrinkle. When you pack, choose those clothes that are wrinkle-resistant. Fold them up in your luggage and they will be ready to wear when you unpack.

Choose Statement Pieces

Go for sweaters and coats with special textures and create a statement. Pieces like this can be styled differently and it adds interest on their own. Like this you don’t have to pack additional layering pieces.

Divide Into Sections

Organize your things in small bags or pouches. It will make your luggage look tidy and easy to find what you want. Confine items would take up unnecessary free space, use shoe bags to organize shoes and bring extra larger bags for laundry.

For a short work-and-play trip, I paired my V neck black dress with a colourful oversized coat and a black clutch purse. Just by swapping the coat with a black blazer, I am all good for a formal meeting.

This coat is a love at first sight (I styled it differently HERE), it keeps me warm in the flight cabin. However, tying the belt in front makes my upper torso looks big, so I tied the belt at the back and made it into a bow🙂

Red heels are basics. They go well with almost everything. I have got this pair from Charles&Keith, the design somehow makes the legs look longer.

[WORK]培养做事高效率的习惯

2 Dec

millionmars-work

动作迅速是良好的行动表现,相反的是懒散怠惰、拖泥带水。因此,雷厉风行是振奋精神、改变行事风格的重要标志。一是严如雷霆,二是快如迅风。雷厉风行的人通常可以按照制定的目标,迅速的落实各项任务部署,井然有序的达成目标。

动作迅速是一个人在行动上展现出的魅力,做事和说话一样,有人啰里啰唆,使人茫然,有人则简洁扼要。动作迅速的人能带给他人充满自信和干劲的感觉。动作迅速的做事是种好习惯。养成后,会自然散发出果断、精进的气质。

想要培养做事高效率的风格:

1. 把工作分类

先做紧急的工作,后做不急的事。在零碎的时间里,做更加不着急、又可以细分成零碎的工作,比如校对、核帐。先做紧急的工作,会在各方面显得更有效率。做零碎的工作可及时发现问题,为以后的工作节省时间。

2. 不懂就要问

在工作问题上要放弃面子观念,无论身处何种级别,都难免遇见让自己焦头烂额或不得其解的事情。出现这样的情况时,要及时向同事或上司请教,不要担心会被别人笑话。若是一直弄不清问题所在,无法迅速解决问题,拖延太久,自然达不到雷厉风行的效果。

3. 对自己要有信心

很多人有好的点子,也想表达自己的看法,但是又担心被人笑话或太出风头而成为众矢之的,所以有想法也不敢表达、不敢尝试。时间一久,自己都忘记原本想做的事。引用一句戴晨志老师的话“不要让不好意思成为你人生的绊脚石,凡是让你觉得不好意思的事都要马上去做,否则时间会把你的勇气完全消磨掉。”记住,YOLO (You Only Live Once)!

个人内心的标准决定我们是什么样的人,只要自动自发的培养雷厉风行的作风,相信在不久的将来就会成为这样的人。当你习惯雷厉风行,自然会拥有果决、正确的判断力。

一天一点,让我们一起将自己培养成高效率的人!如果你喜欢我的文章,记得留言让我知道~ 赞下去是最简单和直接的支持啦!

Perseverance in Raising Gifts of Life [Casual Red Dresses]

20 Nov

It is not easy since day one.

As a mother.

millionmars-padini-kids-2

Ultimately, our children are gifts to us and we have only a small window of opportunity to mould their characters.

What makes the job of parenting difficult is accepting the fact that we are imperfect beings trying to raise others imperfectly.

What we need to demonstrate to our children is that we are raising them with humility while acknowledging that we don’t do everything right all the time.

If you are not defensive but ask for their cooperation in doing what is right, even adolescents will appreciate it.

From the book Why Your Children Love You by Eliza Lian-Ding.

millionmars-padini-kids-5

A lot of times, we are just trying our best to be good mothers. To be honest, most of the time we really have no idea what to do… When you see your children fighting with each other for a toy, what do you do? When your child refuse to take a nap or brush her teeth, what do you do? When your child screams at you at a crowded public place, what do you do? No matter how many parenting books you read or how many parenting seminars you have attended, you can never be well prepared when the child arrives. For every child is different and so as every parent.

Life just changed.

And so as you.

I truly cherish every moment I got to spend with these two little girls. They have (in a way) made me a better person in general. I  have learned to be (and not just act as) a mother and my life priorities are all different now since they came into our lives.

Now as the girls grow, we are having more fun while playing dress up. Their father buys them a lot of clothes in pairs, so I have decided to UP our dressing game a little bit by wearing the matching outfits as we go out🙂

Their cute casual dresses are from Padini. You can shop it HERE.

My dress has been blogged about HERE when I was in Sydney earlier this year. Instead of its original braided belt, I pair it with a tassel belt this time.

Most of the time, they were having fun together. But getting them to pose properly for a picture is still a real struggle.

Like what was written in the book “What makes the job of parenting difficult is accepting the fact that we are imperfect beings trying to raise others imperfectly.” Many times we experience failures, we are clueless and we have our own weaknesses. To make parenting simpler, maybe what we need to do is to tell ourselves and our children that Mummy is not always right, mummy could be wrong too. When we started accept ourselves and acknowledge our own weaknesses, we will be more able to rectify and make the necessary change to be a better version of ourselves.
