Life Update

Living life on a rainbow recently.
Career change and work challenge makes me excited.
Everything outside my comfort zone is making me high.
Don't be fooled by the monochromatic picture and I'm not on drugs. haha!

Subconsciously juggling work and studies like a clown. 
This final module is way tougher than I've expected! Journey to Masters graduation seems bumpy.
Totally beaten down by my not-good-enough English literacy (#sarcasm) with understanding on all reading material like a 3-year-old.
Everything worsens when Baidu translate decides to tell you that 'Emancipator Rhetoric' is Italian, with the meaning of Chicken Rice in Bean Paste.
You know life is good. Joke aside, 解放的修辞 still doesn't make sense. Baidu translate failed my entire August.
Fingers crossed for a better September.
Stocking up on coffee mix and warm cuddles before heading back to Hunan! :)

Avoiding A Wardrobe Malfunction At Homecoming

. . .

To make an impression at the upcoming Homecoming dance, one of the best ways to do this is to choose a jaw dropping dress that will leave your classmates (or crush! ) in awe.  Instead of dressing up as a can of tomato soup, I'd recommend finding inspiration on social media from how bloggers or fashion icons dress to impress. 

. . .

. Work Out Your Style Preferences And Skin Tone .

The style of dress that we choose for our big night is going to be dictated by both our taste, as well as our body shape. There are plenty of information available on the internet that suggests certain styles of clothing for different body shapes. After deciding on the style of dress that flatters our figure,  it's time to choose a colour that best compliment our skin tone. 

. Finding The Perfect Dress .

With internet shopping, we now have access to so much choice that it can be hard for us to know if the online retailer we engaged in is reliable. It is advisable to do some research and go through reviews before taking the plunge.  Honestly, "see-through" doesn't tick any box on my checklist. Unless that's the look I'm going for. *wink*

Huge benefit from shopping online is that we get to consider brands and designs we haven't previously thought of, just like how we can get high-quality homecoming dresses in 2017 only at Prom Dress Shop that you will not see elsewhere. Preparation work can be done way in advance, giving us plenty of time to return/exchange for other style/size.

. Accessorize To Perfection .

Now that we've decided on our perfect homecoming dress, it's time to choose appropriate accessories to give our outfit a finishing touch. I'd say go minimal with shoes and jewellery, avoid over-accessorizing, keep things simple and functional because we will probably have a date to hold.


After all, it's about having fun. Have you found something snazzy to wear to homecoming this year? Clock is ticking. I shall hunt for a date before it's too late.


What You Need To Know When Shopping For An Engagement Ring


A proposal of marriage is a massive step that a lot of people decide to make in their lives, and there can be a lot of pressure on you when planning how you are going to ask the question. One of the biggest decisions to make is on the purchase of the engagement ring, as you will want to choose a ring which is going to knock your future wife’s socks off! You can get some good advice on the Forbes website on purchasing an engagement ring that you may find useful. If you plan accordingly and shop around, you may just find the process is not as daunting as you first thought.

Know What She Wants

If you have discussed marriage in the past with your partner and looked at rings, you may already have a good idea of her taste in rings and know what she would like. If you are not sure though, you will want to try and discreetly speak to her friends and family and use their knowledge to help you decide what style of ring will have her feeling like a princess. Make sure that you only include friends and relatives that will be able to keep the secret, or your plans could lie in ruins. One of the most important things that you will need to know is what size her ring finger is, and by knowing this you can get a ring in the correct size so it fits like a glove from the moment you put it on her finger.

Shop Around

A quick search of the internet will show that there are more retailers selling diamonds and rings that you can shake a stick at. It is important to find a reputable jeweller who is fully accredited and is trusted within the industry. You can check out the diamond engagement rings in New Zealand, and other such retailers, who have built up a reputation of offering quality jewellery at affordable prices, as well as exceptional service. When you are searching retailers make yourself a list of the most reputable ones that you find, and then contact each one and explain your requirements. You can then see what each has to offer and compare both the rings, as well as the prices.

Make sure that when you are choosing the ring that you prioritise what your partner prefers, and keep your taste out of the decision. Remember, if you want to make her feel like a princess and give her everything that she wants, her dream engagement ring is the first step in spending the rest of your life together, happy and contented. But dear husband to-be, don't forget that marriage isn't entirely about the ring but the life that both of you are ought to create together. Happy marriage! x
