What's new

Hmmm. I like the fact that this week is such a short work week. (triple yay!)

Perks of the job: Be part of Marc by Marc Jacobs fashion show last Tuesday. It was sooo good. I like that their spring 2011 collection has so many wearable pieces. Ultimate lust. They're a burst of colors and a good balance of neural hues like grey.

Do you want to know how they recreate all that frizz?

Tadah! (Snapped by my trusty BB bold)

Anyway, so what's new? I'm officially a year older. (haaaaappppyyyyy birthdaaaaaay to meeeeeee) Bummer. But this year despite having most of the usual suspects not in town - I still managed to feel loved. Ally and Sammie came by with cake while I had my clay mask on (IMAGINE THE HORROR?!). I was literally unable to laugh or smile. It was funny though. This birthday I really don't want much - I just want to be happier than before.

Talk when I've something exciting to update.
You have all my love xxxxx

2 months, 8 weeks, 61 days

Many have asked me time and time again, "Are you ok? How are you dealing with the break up?". A month ago, I was shrugging it off, talking about it here and there and today I finally felt like I could talk about it. You know, without hate.

The breakup wasn't immediate like a tsunami, it felt like a slow and deadly flesh-eating disease that chew me inside out over time. There were couple times I couldn't deal with it at all, I had to hide under sheets and cry but these days I don't cry so much anymore. I still think about the past some times but it doesn't hurt anymore. That's progress, IMO.

I don't know about him. A month after the breakup, I decided to unfollow him on twitter which honestly helped me A LOT. They were right, if you really want to get over someone, you need to stay away from the person even if it means virtually. Facebook updates were a hit and miss.

In short, the breakup didn't uprooted my life. I was very fortunate. It just uprooted me from all that compromising state I was in. I was really rolling in the deep. I am scarred but I believe some day someone's gonna walk me out of it. Out of all that second guessing and insecurity. He just didn't want to be the one and it's okay.

It's been 2 months equivalent of 8 weeks and equivalent of 61 days...... I'm clean of the achin'.

On Stranger Tides

I cannot live without painting my nails. When my nails are naked, I feel like I am too. And I swear by O.P.I. I like the fact that O.P.I brings a dash of fun and pop culture to nail polish by collaborating with famous celebrities and hit televisions series.

Inspired by the highly anticipated Disney movie "Pirates of the Caribbean: On stranger tides", O.P.I launches 6 mystical colors that embody the wild escapades of Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz.

OPI "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" Sikver Shatter nail polish.

OPI "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" nail polish in Steady As She Rose, Sparrow Me the Drama and Planks a Lot.

OPI "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" nail polish in Skull & Glossbones, Stranger Tides and Mermaids Tears.

The colors are inspired by a world filled with mythical mermaids, gleaming treasure and high-seas adventures. With shades ranging from safe and lavender to Khaki gray and pastal pink, these colors are evocative of a warm, tropical setting, with a classic nautical influence, says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI executive VP and artistic director

Which color are you lusting for? I particularly love Mermaids Tears and Steady as she rose! Can't wait to get my hands on them when I see them in Singapore.

Happy April's Fool Day!
