[Fashion] Sparkling Pink X Turquoise Dress

15 Mar

Pink & Turquoise is one of the prettiest combinations.

It is a cheerful duo, vibrant, fresh looking and feminine at the same time. I remembered I was running out of idea of what to wear to a wedding lunch, and when I saw this turquoise dress, I have decided to style it a little bit differently with a statement necklace full of pink and turquoise stones, then top it up with a silk scarf to create a soft romantic look.

There are so many ways that pink and turquoise can be used together, do you like the combination too? Let me know in the comment box below 🙂

Practice Tough Love

6 Feb

Hello Everyone! How are you?

red-dress-girl-6

I have just got back from my long Chinese New Year holiday feeling all rejuvenated and ready for all the goals and challenges lined ahead. Can’t believe we are in February of 2017 already! For the past one week, I really got the chance to unwind and did some serious thinking about my life. Been reading a lot of books lately and one of the book that I read is Life Lessons From The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, written by Robin Sharma.

One chapter that really struck me is about “Practicing Tough Love”

Perseverance in Raising Gifts of Life [Casual Red Dresses]

20 Nov

It is not easy since day one.

As a mother.

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.

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.

6 Unique Ways To Start Having More Fun

9 Sep

So the story goes like this, one day when I was working at my desk, trying to re-design the interview form for my company. I wanted to include a question about “what the candidate does for fun”, to further understand how the candidate spend his/her free time enjoying life. I then turned to my colleague and asked her: So what do you do for fun? 

She looked at my for a moment and burst into tears. She told me she doesn’t have fun anymore. She is a wife, mother, and a working woman. She forgot how fun looks like.

Unfortunately, too many of us are just like her. We are busy for the children, taking care of the house, career, house chores… And we forget to have fun. 

Therefore I decide to have some fun every now and then. It can be as simple as eating my favourite chocolate ice cream, hanging out with friends, work on a passion project, or do something I have never tried before.

I notice that I become a better worker, spouse and person if I have fun in my life.

So today I would like to share with you six ways to add fun into your life:

1. Count Your Blessings

Be thankful for what you have in your life. People who count their blessings rather than complain about their troubles just naturally have more fun. Prevent negativity in your life and start writing down all the blessings in your life. You would realize life becomes more fun without much effort!

2. Daydream

Daydreaming is my favourite. I use to think that daydreaming is your mind’s way of sending your soul a message. It is the starting point of all wonderful things and inventions. If you daydream in a positive manner, you will be amazed at how creative your mind can be and the secrets it will tell you.

Take some time off to sit and be quiet and just let your mind wander. Daydream about the kind of life you would like to have, things you want to do. Anything is possible in dreams. Pay attention to what your mind is telling you, write it down in a journal.

As the saying goes, “If you want to know where your heart is, look to where your mind goes when it wanders.”

3. Design A New “You”

Oftentimes we can’t imagine ourselves stepping out of our comfort zone and doing something new and different. We get so locked into what we know that we can’t let go of who we think we are.

So this exercise is simple, think about designing a new “you”. Make up another self that you wished to be. By doing this, you will be more free and able to be anyone you desired.

This should be fun and freeing, so take it easy and make the new “you” to be anything you want. What characters would the new “you” have? What does the new “you” do for fun? How does the new “you” dress?

4. It’s Okay To Have Fun

So many people don’t give themselves permission to have fun because they think it will detract from their responsibilities.

Life is meant to be fun. What kid doesn’t love to see their mother or father having fun, especially if it’s with them?

Yes, we all have things that we are responsible for—kids, parents, house, job—but we need to remember to add in fun and give ourselves permission to have it. You’ll be a better person for it.

5. Yes You CAN

What we tell ourselves becomes our reality. If we think we can’t do something, then we can’t or won’t even try.

For example, let’s say someone suggests surfing as something you might find fun. If you tell yourself that you can’t even swim and you will never find balance on a surf board, you probably won’t even try surfing.

Stop reinforcing these limiting beliefs and start telling yourself you can do it.

6. Dress Up And Show Up

We all have a personal pool of quicksand inside us where we begin to sink and need friends and family to find us and remind us of all the good that has been and will be.

Take on every opportunity to dress up, put on your favourite jewellery and perfume. Go out and meet people, observe how people are having fun. And learn how to genuinely appreciate the good things and good people in your life.
