WILW and Oh how pinteresting - Special Edition


Hi everyone! It’s been a month of no blog post. Month of April was a very good month for me. It’s quite overwhelming but I’m very thankful and grateful for God’s blessings. Too many good things had happened and I’m looking forward for more. So in lieu of these good things ofcourse lots of work that leads me to no post mode.

I miss participating in WILW and Oh how Pinteresting by The Vintage Apple anyways lets jump in and lemme share with you some good things:



First like I said I’m loving the month of April, it’s like a valentine's month for me. It’s because I’m officially engaged with my hubby.





April 11 is the official date where he proposed and gave me this lovely engagement ring. Which I considered  the most beautiful ring! And this day was the most memorable day ever! And we’ve shared this special moment with our special friends…this is the most beautiful night I’ve ever had!


April was also a cooking month for me, I’ve cooked a lot last month maybe because I was in cloud nine and was really inspired to cook and bake. Here a sneak peek of some food goodies I made. Watch out for the coming recipe!

We have been busy with our business; in my part I’ve been busy in organizing and taking some pictures for the ad. Here’s some of the shots that I took and loving.


Ofcourse, not to forget I have been loving the weather, it’s hot in the morning but breezy in the afternoon. And you know the deal during summer, it’s time to hit the Jumeirah, Dubai beach again!



I have loving this poster and cards that I saw in the mall, its so true!


And lastly I have been loving my latest mission which is – hunting for a car. Though its not my forte, but surely its fun to look around and see all the latest cars.


Its pinning time!

 



Since summer is here I have been looking around for a lookbook inspiration



This is so cute! my next DIY project


Loving this sandals! Love the colors!


I have also been checking some ideas for engagement photos


And lastly, for my other half...


I hope your month of April was as good as mine!!! what have you been loving lately?
 Keep smiling and spread love!!!

WILW and Oh how pinteresting - Spring edition


Hi everyone! Its Wednesday! Finally!!!! as you can see with my exclamation point, I have been waiting for this day. I don't know with you guys, but I personally feel this week is kinda slow and tiring. Well anyways, I'm glad its Wednesday which only means, its' time for WILW and Oh how Pinteresting by The Vintage Apple




As you notice in my previous post, I am in a spring cleaning mood. And I'm loving the outcome! Its' nice to have an organized place. And the most exciting part is linking/participating with Jen of iheartorganizing. You can see my post here and here.



Since its already hot here, I'm currently obsessed with sorbet.
 
Carrot, beets & guava


If you follow me in Instagram you must have already seen this, I am in love with our new collection. Isn't it so adorabale and it  look so elegant and unique.


And I'm also loving this spring color nail polish from Covergirl. The color is lav-endure, and I totally recommend it. First the color is to die for, its so opaque and pigmented and it last for the whole week.



its pinning time!
Hold on a second, as you all know Pinterest recently updated their site. And one of the changes, is the method of how we imbed images in our blog. Honestly, the recent revamp in their site is much way better. But in terms of embedding images, I honestly prefer the old school. Well anyways, if you want a further tutorial on how to embed image please visit Michelle's blog here.
 



I love spring, especially I love redecorating our house and give some color. It's just so refreshing in the eyes.



Who doesn't love tulip.



In fashion, I am gravitating towards pastel colors.



Love this top!



In my shopping list. My goal this season is to add some colors in my jewelry collection.



And this is my decorating inspiration right now



Perhaps once I have a baby girl...



Even in place, this picture just makes me want to go to carnival...



I love how pastel colors are being incorporated even in food.






And lastly, just an inspirational words. I will definitely print this out and update my seasonal picture frame artwok






Keep smiling and spread love!!!

Toiletries and medicine cabinet organization {link up with iheartorganizing}

My spring cleaning mood is still activated, which is a good sign (crossed finger I hope it continues forever :D) It just makes me feel good to accomplished small projects which I always say – "small thing makes a big difference after all".

This time I was inspired by Jen of iheartorganizing. For me, she's the queen of organization. Well this is my first link up with her, and I'm very excited!

This time I tackled our toiletries and medicine cabinet.



 This how it looks like before:


Ahhhgghh!!! I hate it! things are not in the proper place. So here's how I started:

1. I removed all the items, clean it and sort it. For the medicines, I always check the expiration dates.
2. I purchased extra containers and label it accordingly. Containers are cheap tool in organizing.
3. Arrange, organize, arrange, organize! That's the key.

And finally, here's the outcome!

I'm very pleased and now everything is in place.
You may also want to check out my previous post here, where I tackled a quick 15 minutes or less spring cleaning.

Stay safe! Keep smiling! spread love!!!

15 minutes or less spring cleaning

Time flies! hello march and good bye! What?!!? I can't imagine, I didn't even have time to really sit down and enjoy this month and blog! Well anyways, for this last day of March, I'd make sure that for once, I will have time to enjoy, touch base and give some love to my blog.

It’s getting a bit warmer here, which means only that spring just hit the door. For me springtime does not only means warmer and colorful days, it also means spring cleaning. So as a warm up let’s do a 15 minutes or less spring cleaning, shall we? It’s never too early or should I say too late to jump on spring cleaning, small things makes big difference after all.

Some chores that will only require 15 mins or even less of your time.

1. Clean and organise your makeup bag or your everyday makeup container.




I don't know with you guys, but in my case since I'm always in a rush in the morning preparing myself to work, my makeup bag and container tends to be a mess and disorganise. So what I normally do, I always clean and organise this every Saturday.  I empty the container/bag. I take an antibactiral wipes and clean each of the makeup.  I'm segregating the items and if I'm not using it, I will put it back to my makeup drawer or I even throw some that are not working with me. I also like to take turns with the product, meaning every week I always take other makeup from my makeup drawer to use for the coming week. In this way, I make it sure that I will use all the makeup that I have. 


then viola! a clean and organise makeup bag/container.



2. Clean and organise your night stand drawer.

My night stand drawer contains items that I will most likely want to reach before sleeping.


So first empty the drawer, wipe the drawer and each items using your antibacterial wipes or solution. Segregate. Do an inventory and analyze what items you're really using and not. For the items that are not supposed to be in the night stand drawer, you need to make sure to find a proper home for these items.


3.Organise your cabinet/dresser.

This took me the maximum 15 minutes (I think even more) of the spring cleaning challenge. Coz it is so difficult to decide which one I should let go and keep.

So first you want to take out all your clothes. Analyze or I even fit some. This way I can proceed with the next step, which is - DECIDE. Decide whether its' a YES, NO or MAYBE. Yes means I'm keeping it, No means I'm donating it. and Maybe means I have to think gazillion time (wink *) ). So from there I segregate my clothes into 3 groups (Yes, No & Maybe).  Once I have decided, I will arrange it, put it back in the hangers or fold it nicely.



One thing that I prefer when organising the dresser, is to put the shirt color coded. I swear this small tip really makes a huge difference.




I hope I gave you some idea for a quick spring cleaning. 

Keep smiling and spread love!!!

Style to steal

Who doesn’t like a branded or signature items?!!? Well I guess no one; I do sometimes splurge myself for the things that I’m really dreaming/wanting, but not all the time. (Or else my wallet will dry out ;D) Branded or signature items are nicest thing of them all but not the price tag underneath. That is why I am in constantly looking for a better deal without sacrificing the quality and the style that I want.

You may recall that back in my post here, I am gravitating towards the leopard prints style. So from that day, I was in a continuous hunt for my current obsession. And I am happy to say that I successfully found the things that I want and the most exciting part is that I got it in much better price point. Why spend a lot if you can get it in cheaper price, right?

So without further ado, here are the items that I successfully found:


 As you can see its a big price difference. But design wise it is pretty close (especially the Munro and the Fioni). Honestly I really LOVE these flats, especially the deflex, without exaggerating its the most comfortable shoes I ever had. As the name explains, it a flexible flat. It is so comfortable and very soft. I have been using this non-stop. 

 
They are currently on sale right now, so please get one, I swear you'll never regret it. They also have other designs in the same concept "deflex", I tried them but honestly though its comfortable its not really flattering in my feet, not unlike the leopard print. 

Here are the other things that I got, which are also in a better price point:

from forever21, not available anymore but this is also nice.


Scarf from H&M (Its currently on sale!)



Iphone case got it from the street vendor in China. I really love this! and I also love the price!



You don’t have to spend a lot, fashion is not about the name/brand  or the price tag underneath, its about how you put it up together and how you carry it.

And finally, I want to share with you all this nice quote from YSL



 Happy Friday!!! keep smiling, spread love! and stay FABULOUS!!!

Party pinspiration

I threw a simple surprise birthday party for my friend at our house. Though I have a limited time to prepare (since I just made everything after my office work) I was still happy with the outcome! Our small gathering was just filled with a magic touch of pinterest inspiration :D

I just decided to serve finger foods, since I don't have enough time to cook main dishes.


I served: baked french fries, black olives, black olive paste, cherry tomato, slice of cucumber and carrot, store bought Pâté, and sun-dried tomato with turkey and cheddar cheese skewers.

Variation of Chicken cucumber salad and hummus









Cherry tomato with cucumber slice, black olives and feta cheese skewers.

That's it! It was definitely a sweet and simple small gathering night! Let me know if you want me to share the recipe or how-to for the foods that I served. Or please do share some of your pinspiration project lately.
