Self-trimmed Bangs

May 11, 2013 § 1 Comment

My friend who is a hair stylist taught me a trick to keep my bangs in shape. That is to trim a little bit once a week so that it looks like it hasn’t grown out. It’s fun but i usually ended up chopping off more than intended. However, i’m hooked onto it and its a weekly affair now! I think i’m getting better each week.

Am working on something big (in my own context) –re-skinning my mood board at work. Hurray! This may take awhile though.


Customised sticky notes

February 23, 2013 § Leave a comment

I recently came across a free sticky note printable on How About Orange and it reminded me of all the little notes we used to print and stuck them on the documents at work. And i thought maybe i should customise my own ‘to-do’ stickies to brighten up my workspace. I somehow got carried away. With some free vectors and awesome fonts, TADA! Sticky greetings for my colleagues! I hope it perked up their day. You can make some of yours today!stickies

Absolutely loving it!

I can’t think of anyone who doesn’t. NUTELLA -it’s truly one of the greatest inventions ever!I can’t thank Mr. Pietro Ferrero enough for bringing this yummy hazelnut with cocoa spread to the world. And also the clever people who thought of ways to make all sorts of mouth-watering goodies with it. Just type ‘Nutella’ on Pinterest and every possible recipe with the goodness of the cocoa hazelnut pops out.

One of my favorite desserts has got to be the Nutella Cake from Gastronomia da Paulo. Heat it up and watch the oozing chocolate drown the warm chocolate cake, then attack it with your spoon. Oooooh! I might just get a tub of it later. If you would like to get into the Nutella mood, click here to view the boards on Pinterest. Start salivating!

I managed to gawk at his work before the exhibition ended in Singapore. It’s more awesome than awesome!

He may be eccentric, but his work oozes confidence, cheekiness and raw fun. Other than the Marilyn Monroe series, I absolutely love the one of Sidney Janis. It’s so intense I could sit there all day staring at it. Love it!

Someone lodged a complaint – I need to learn how to cook. So I drew up an ambitious plan. But I’ll only post it if they are successful. To start off, cream of Portobello was pretty good. (Smiling from ear to ear) The recipe is from Noob Cook. She’s got lots of yummy stuff for everyone to try. Go see.

Sleeping in an Art Gallery

We finally got down to hanging up all the pictures and now it feels like we are sleeping in an art gallery. Loved it that it turned out nice. It was a stressful first night because we were afraid they might just fall off the wall while we sleep. I guess we will be fine.
