Going mobile

I have been usin my iPhone for close to a year now and I can say that I have been attached to it a lot that I ended up using it more than my lappy (sorry!)

So finally I had the chance to stunble upon this cool app -- blog booster that allows me to blog from my phone! How cool is that?! Now I shoukd not have an excuse for not being able to blog more often!

Though I have to warn you right now that since I am using a touchscreen type of phone ( touchscreen phone users you know you are guilty with this as well), my grammar or spelling will be horrible. I know I should proofread before posting but I also know that when I get excited, I hit publish immediately! So pardon me for that!

Hopefully with this app in my phone, I can blog more and let out my thoughts!

Another Re-post: Dressing yourself up in GOLD

Girls and boys love accessorizing.

It could be a fancy cap, a necklace, a mobile phone or any item that can make you stand out of your group and be noticed.

Usually, our accessories can vary - it can be very high end (which can be for long term use) or a bargain (since fashion does change over the season and at times, just months, we just 'go with the flow').

As for me, I love jewelry (necklacesearrings and bracelets). I do have to admit that my knees go weak for G-O-L-D!! My husband and I would always pass by the jewelry shops in the mall to check if there's anything I might fancy or if they have new collections out.

We go to the shops so often that we have been friends with the shop attendants (hint: doing so, they can give you good! good! discounts being a 'regular').

While browsing through the internet, I saw these pictures that designers and people do to incorporate Gold in their things!

Re-post: Real Women, Real Bodies

I have pulled this out from an old blog that I have maintained. I have written this piece September 2009

How comfortable are you about your body?

I know I'm not --- but I try (",)

I guess it's because of those size-zero models who sashay along the runaway, showing off their neck and rib bones, slipping into those uber beautiful dresses which makes you think how can a dress like that fit an 'average girl' like me?

However I stumbled into this article while browsing through Facebook:

and saw her picture:-

Lizzie Miller

The model's name is Lizzie Miller. According to the article, Lizzie was considered big that she cannot even model plus-size lines! Imagine that!

This photo made me realise that we all have the same problem... love handles, big thighs, flabby tummy, stretch marks and the list can go on... but like what they say, 'Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder'.

Hope to see more of this!!!
