Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you my must have items for school. You do not necessarily bring all these stuff but I would strongly recommend that you do! Let me explain to you whyyyyy :)
You want to have folders that hold your lecture notes, assignments, class notices etc., if not , it is highly possible that you would lose your papers or give them wrinkles. The best way to organise your papers is to get another box file that is categorized, so that you can insert your papers accordingly while getting home. Doing that every night will help you store your papers better and avoid missing anything!
2. Agenda / Daily Planner
This is really essential for me. I highly recommend an agenda to bring along with you, whether is it a small and handy one or larger ones that allow you to look at your daily planning. A way of organizing your agenda is to use color codes for different items, say Red for tests & assignments, Green for holidays, Blue for school events, purple for other social /out-of-school activities. This could help you with planning your work when you can have an overall idea of your week schedule by a quick glance through the page.
3. Post-its / temporary stickers
You want to prepare some post-its for reminders, points-to-note, important notices etc. You never know when you need them! You can stick them everywhere, on your handouts where you find some areas important / must revise for exams, or on your planner telling yourself deadlines and special events. Trust me, they are kind of helpful in some ways! It is best to put them into a small pouch.
4. Pen Case / Holder
You want to have a pen holder big enough to hold several things : Pens, Pencils, Ruler, Rubber, Correction Fluid/tape and highlighters. If you are a lazy person you might just want to carry with you a pen, but for me, I love highlighting notes, again in color codes, to define which are important points and which are for other purposes.
5. Your phone with planner apps
This is again optional. I realized that there are lots of planner/ organizer apps available at the app markets for smart phones, which I really recommend downloading just to backup your schedule. I recently downloaded an app “CalenMob" which allows me to enter my personal schedule for every day and check it out by viewing monthly, weekly or daily. I think it is really nice and I found it quite user-friendly. In my opinion, I love to input my daily schedule into my phone so that I can do quick checks if my planner is not with me.
I hope this is helpful as I know that school has already started for some of you. Anyways, enjoy school when you still have the chance to study! Good luck in projects and exams!!!!
Our Beach Escape at Khao Lak, Phuket, Thailand
Summer 2012. 31/8 - 4/9
In late August I went to Khao Lak, which is somewhere in Phuket, Thailand for a little escape from life in Hong Kong. It was indeed an amazing trip I had with my boyfriend, where we swam and suntanned a lot. The resort we stayed at was La Flora Resort & Spa, and this place was beautiful. We stayed at a pool-access room where we can get to the pool from our room. Fantasticccc!!!! Food and drinks were really delicious, especially Thai specialties- Tom Yam Gong. Staff was nice and so as people in Thailand! The resort is famous for its spa & massages, and of course we did went for these relaxations! I also did a manicure , yay!
It’s jus a short review on my trip. I miss this place a LOT! I wish I could spend a month here and I am never gonna get tired of it. Hopefully when I got spare times I would travel to this wonderland again. <3
Back to School / Fall outfits
Which one of these are your go-to looks for school / the coming fall ?
TIP: You wanna dress in style but not too dressy for school because it sounds a lil inappropriate
My Go-to style this fall would probably be sticking with deep reds, camel & navies knitwear , which matches with the cool weather and look extra cosy. One color I would also love to try out is cream/whites, best to pair with black or denim jeans. ( Im not a jeans type of person, but this season I would love to try out different looks with jeans and see how it feels..) For shoes, I want to go with flats & boots, since heels are not comfy to walk on, especially for school. For nails, I would pick up some plummy/ dark colors…#563 Vertigo from the Chanel Fall 2012 collection is one of my new faves!
I am recently in love with more laid back styles that look effortless and carefree, instead of trying too hard to look edgy and stuff. Anyways I believe many of you are longing for Fall to come! So get ready and shop for your favorite outfits and rock your closet!
**Don’t forget your cute backpack!!
- Check this out from Chriselle Lim’s youtube channel, which she demonstrated on how to decorate your old backpacks and make them look stylish & chic!
HOPE YOU’D ENJOY SCHOOL!

Wht abt you? what are your summer essentials?
Quick tip to secure your fabric tapes in place, which is easy and reusable <3
DIY Tape holder - for your decorative tapes
Do you have tons and tons of tapes like these (masking tapes, fabric tapes, laces etc.) that you could not store appropriately because they roll here and there in your drawers? I used to stack them up but it turned out really inconvenient for me to choose and take the tape I want. That’s why I took a piece of useless cardboard to turn it into a tape holder which costs less than a penny.
What you will need:
1. Useless cardboards
2. Wide tapes
3. Useless paper / colored paper ( for wrapping the holder ) (optional)
4. Your pretty deco tapes!
Hope you like the easy DIY!
MAKE A WISH. BDAY CARD.
It was my bff’s birthday few days ago.. I was thinking of making something more 3-Dimensional this time. sooo i came up with this!
You can definitely go with any color and designs, but I decided to stick with black and white with a touch of gold so to match with the Chanel gift box and bag.
What you will need:
1. Paper card
2. A candle in any color
3. Felt pen
4. Ribbon (again in any other colors)
5. Hot glue - to adhere the candle
Have fun in DIY! :-)

I MUSTACHE YOU A QUESTION.
OK so I don’t know WHY did mustaches became so popular recently. They appear everyyy whereee! Nail designs, necklaces, charms, decorations….
Well anyhow I have to admit they’re kind of cute! Don’t you think so? :)
I especially adore those mustache pillows..those customized TOMS as well!
A Hint Of Turquoise
A little green, a little blue, which makes the amazing color turquoise for this summer! I am personally addicted to this color recently just because it matches with white so much! Plus I couldn’t find any other colors as special as turquoise which matches my skin tone as well.
I love how this unique color stands out but also blends in so well with almost any color you wear, no matter black/white, warm or cool tones.
How would you like this color to glam up your outfit? I heart arm candies in turquoise, also scarfs which can definitely make a statement on simple outfits. You can also take a turquoise clutch and match it with blue shoes… anything.. I just LOVE this color right now!
(click photos for a closer view!)
Leave a comment below if you have any other favorite colors or ways to wear something turquoise!
Other than DIY Ideas, the FOOD RENDEZVOUS series will also be launched from today onwards, sharing with you my deli food and drinks every week! (Hopefully I’ll be updating on Sunday nights)
Cause’ I haven’t recorded meals this week.. there’s not much to share lol
anyways.. here you are ;-)
Have you ran out of ideas on how to decorate/ wrap a birthday present for you friends or family? I found wrappings a great waste and expensive when the receiver just rip it off at instance, so why not save money and DIY your own parcel pressie? This idea is not something new, but I came up with it coz of the materials I found at home, which are exactly what I wanted for this DIY!
I bought a big pile of recycled paper for sketches few years ago, and I could not use up all of it, so I turned them into wrappings.
After wrapping the present up, I got some postal chops and a brownish-colored ink pad. (Purchased from City’super)
