Dog Eye Stockings...Wait, what?!

THESE ARE TO DIE FOR!!! Okay, I hardly start a post with such creepy enthusiasm, but you are insane if you can't appreciate this pair of awesome fancy stockings (way to go, insulting my readers, I swear I've consumed too much sugar today). These are by QooQooFashion, an Etsy shop by graphic designer Alyona Bauska.

Bruton Stroube: Breakfast Interrupted

Recently came across this amazing video by Bruton Stroube, the most awesome people on the planet. They are creatives specialising in advertising, and this video is probably their best work IMO. Check it out! Flying bacon! The only time you can see pigs fly. Teehee. Also see their behind the scenes video below!

A Beautiful Mess

Sore fingers and sleepless nights, I haven't experienced this since secondary school when I was up makings and selling rings. Nostalgic! Sneak peek of my army of friendship bracelets that are going up on sale soon. Let's hope they sell well!

Confetti System

Paper and confetti. Two of my favourite things in the world. Put them together and what do you get? Amazing works by Confetti System! They are a duo that has made confetti and tissue paper look like expensive works of art that are beautiful and oh-so-to-die-for. They've worked for Opening Ceremony and J. Crew displays, and I hope one day we can see their works in Singapore (dreaming, I know...)

Work in Progress: Friendship Bracelets

Friendship bracelets have made a comeback. I used to wear them as anklets in secondary school! Ahh...memories. How I wish I could be that young again. But anyway, these were pretty easy to make, though all that finger work has made mine totally sore and unusable for the next 2 days. Tutorials up soon! For now, plans for these are basically made to sell, for charity! I'm heading to Myanmar to build a library for orphans so we need all the money we can get. Hopefully I can make a decent amount from this so they have a pretty library to grow up in.

USB Locket by Emily Rothschild

Amazingly brilliant. I wish I had $240USD to blow on this :( I won't ever lose my flash drives again! Sigh...temptation after temptation presenting itself to me this past week. I will persevere!

New kicks & bling

Been awhile since I used my camera to take anything, but I found my 50mm lens recently so I played around with it. Here are some pics of my new purchases! I probably shouldn't be too happy about spending money but I am...it's a sin.

Bimba & Lola purchases

Prettiest bracelet that went really well with the sweater I wore when I bought it. Maybe that's why I bought it...

New black flats from Topshop. Mine wore out a few days ago which gave me an excuse to buy new ones.

Steve Madden glitter flats I've been meaning to post for ages!

Look at all that bling!
My dad has forbidden me to buy any more shoes. And my boyfriend has forbidden me to buy any sweaters. It's just something I can't resist! At least I don't lust for diamonds or jewellery right!?

Paper Goodness: These Are Things

I'm a real sucker for paper and all things print. Even more when they are silkscreened. There's just that special feeling that I get when I smell fresh paper. I call it my designer's vice! I came across These Are Things from a friend on facebook (yeah, all my friends are equally print crazy designers...) and I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF IT! Check out how amazing their silkscreened maps and posters are! If you must know I am also a poster freak. I dream of filling the walls of my house with framed letterpressed/silkscreened posters that I cannot afford. Hehe. But the couple from These Are Things have made theirs very affordable and I might just get these two featured below!
