.01 Travels

Currently at the 3rd phase of Back-to-Back travels.
A 4th phase coming up real soon and I'm not at all complaining!
Expecting a getaway to somewhere tropical and hair caressed by salty wind.
Our recent trip to Taipei was magnificent. Gorgeous food and the weather was beyond perfect. Took some really good shots of the city from my eyes.

The more I travel, the more I enjoy the art of packing light. Packed everything in a carry on but plan changed because I had to lug my laptop along for work and assignment, otherwise a carry on would suffice. By the way, how gorgeous does this skirt looks? I'm in love. Outfit post coming up real soon.

.02 Work

Work schedule gets back on track.
May or may not sound like a nut head but trust me, having a schedule packed with things to do and places to go fuels my soul. I have a feeling the 2nd half of year 2017 would be lunatic. Can't wait.


.03 Life

Slacking on exercising for the past 2 months didn't do my body any good. Not that I've gained weight but I feel like my body isn't as strong as before. Posture starts to get slouchy and most parts of my body feels flabby. Committed to make a change. We shall see.


That's all for now.
Lunch break is over and I have a meeting coming up in 30 minutes.
Can you believe it's May already?
Someone please stop the clock from ticking! x

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.

.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. 

Have you started doing Chinese New Year shopping? x

Edit // Shoe Edition

I once own 5o pairs of shoes.
Decluterring and going into Minimalism is amazing.
But I might lose my identity by just living with just 3 pairs.

Before you start judging my mental health, what you are seeing is already the 'decluterred' version of my shoes closet.
Took the plunge early this year and gotten rid of half of my life. The process did involve a few boxes of tissues and de-stressing pillow spray.
With a whooping 24 pairs laying around, I decided detoxify my shoe closet once more before the year 2016 ends.

After the final cut, we are down with 14 pairs of shoes that I've gotten the most wear out of.
It is surprising to know how my shoe closet sits on the very both end of the spectrum. 
Either vans or strappy heels.
What I love about decluterring is that there is no fixed rules.
Every individual is different and I'm happy with the results this time.

If you fancay, some of these shoes are still available online and hopefully you can get your hands on them.
Secretly eyeing on The Modern Oxford from Everlane
Still justifying whether or not to get it to fill the first spot of my '5 Piece French Wardrobe Challenge' for the next 2 quarters. 
Perhaps I should do an updated shoe situation by the end of 2016.
By the way, '5 Piece French Wardrobe Challenge' is going strong. Remember to come back to see what I end up with!!
