AS mainstream at it sounds, I revisited my 2016 resolution and reflected on it. Can't believe I've only had 3 resolutions last year because it felt like 30. Thankgoodness I've achieved everything except for learning how to bake like the mother of cookies. Year 2017 was a year of self exploration. Also the year which marks the end of something which has been holding me back eversince. Didn't focus too much on growing but we all know that GROWTH isn't optional. It came along as I focused on understanding my true self. It's an adventure that'll never stop because true enough, I haven't been focusing on myself at all to deserve what my mind and body contributed to me these years.


I'VE never stopped working. My plate was always filled with things I love but there wasn't a slot for me to step back and do nothing. Being productive is absolutely great but it hit me real hard several times last year where I was shaking with tiredness and my sight got blurry but I bit the bullet and powered through still. This could sound insane but at that point of time, my mind was telling me to go forward and I felt it was the right thing to do. Don't get me wrong, my body was in good shape and I was physically the fittest and healthiest I've been in years. Mentally very strong as well. In honesty 360/366 days were spent feeling grateful and bloody happy.

. 02 BAKE
Back to when I was a teenager, my 'career' goal for life was to be a housewife.
Amazing how a person could change over time. wheresmyreportwhathousewifecomeon.
Baked chocolate chip cookies a few weeks back and for a virgin baker dang were they presentable.
For the next bake, I'll be cutting 50% off the recommended sugar input because I'm an old lady that doesn't have a sweet tooth.
Jokes aside, time to get back into baking.
If you have an easy chocolocate chip cookie recipe, please share.

That's all for now as things get dirty and messy in the kitchen.
List of resolutions to be updated as at when anything hits me. Because how is 2 ever enough?
What are your resultions for 2017? x
Happy March Love.

5 Piece French Wardrobe . Update 02

.03 Highwaisted Jeans

Frantically abused this sexy mother since early September. Had one final slot to fit as we were 6 months into the challenge. Can't go wrong with a pair of classic deep blue jeans am I right? Disposed my previous pair from Pull n Bear that has totally lost its shape that was well ready for retirement. Found a successor :)

.04 Nude Sandals

. Nine West sandals .

Another wardrobe essential that has been lacking in my collection. How bitchy-pants is it to say 'collection' when our intention is to purge life. Lmao. Spent quite a bit of money on these babes but they got scuffed after a few wear and the heel part got so screwed up. Wouldn't recommend buying these if you are planning to spend some cash on this particular pair from Nine West. Walking in stilettos have always been my forte but not anymore. Anything under 4-inch and comfortable is indeed hard to come by.

[Fabulous option under RM100. Use 'ZBAPQLL' for extra 15% off]

.05 Navy A Line Skirt

. Nichii skirt . [similar]

Probably bashing the beauty of my favourite skirt. How does one take outfits shots with a camera stand without looking awkward and pretentious? Do share. Clean and classic silhouette in this gorgeous royal blue shade which I somehow call NAVY. Pretty sure I haven't stopped wearing it since getting it in June. Crease-free and looks great with almost everything.

Just in case you're wondering, here goes part 1 of '5 Piece French Wardrobe Challenge'. Proud to say that 5PFWC has changed the way I live. In terms of how I allocate funds for shopping, how I organize my wardrobe, the way I style existing pieces and most importantly how I'm more conscious of consumerism and fast fashion as a whole. Considering picking up the challenge once more for the year 2017. In the meanwhile, nerd is taking a short break off the challenge due to upcoming festivities whoohaass.
