:: cat print ::

Yesterday I was wearing this same shawl:
Shawl by Radiusite bought from Maria Elena, the famous blogger during a preloved party

The shawl is fully printed with cat print and one of my colleague who passed by said, "you are wearing cat print, just like Victoria Beckham's dress."

When it comes to the Victoria Beckham who is famous with her fashion sense I immediately googled Victoria Beckham cat print dress and here it is:


Cat print doesn't see the limelight so much as compared to other animal prints but they are too cute. I'm going to find and have more cat print in my wardrobe to reflect myself as a cat lover... and 29th October (two days ago) is National Cat Day.

I did wish our cats "Happy Cat Day", hope they got the message :-D

Some cool facts about cats:
- Cats sleep 16 hours of any given days.

- Cats have dreams. They start dreaming when they reach a week old (hrmmm...this may explains why they sometimes twitch in sleep)

- Cats make about 100 different sounds. Dogs make only 10.

- Cats spend nearly one-third of their waking hours cleaning themselves (totally agree!)

- Cats can see anything up to 120 feet away and their peripheral vision is roughly 285 degrees.

:: the one about the high heels ::

"Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world" - Marilyn Monroe

If there is one thing that people would remember about me I guess it would be the high heels. I wear high heels to office almost everyday because to me, an outfit is never complete without a pair of them. I'm used to receiving question like "how do you walk in that?" (even from our company's GCEO) or remarks like "I know it's you just by listening at that footsteps" so I'm proud to consider high heels as part of my personal branding.

I started wearing high heels constantly when I started working with TM in 2003 so the 10 years of experience is indirectly an answer to how I can walk or even run with them. As much as I agree that comfort is the first element to look for, no doubt there were situations where design rules the purchase decision. I bought my high heels from all over the place without considering the brand or the price tag as long as they are pretty, outstanding or eccentric. Thanks to online shopping sites, buying shoes nowadays is just like buying any fashion item. Just trust your gut or measure your feet and voila they are coming to you in clicks away.

My most favourite online shopping site for shoes is definitely Kiss & Tell. Five (5) pairs of my shoes today are bought from them because no matter how high they are, the element of comfort is always guaranteed. As one happy customer, I could say that Kiss & Tell is one of a kind because they offer first class service in terms of delivery and customer checkpoint. I was really impressed when they sent me an email to check whether I have ordered correctly because the size was different from what I normally chose, when the shoes were meant for my boss who is a size 8. Such personalisation is definitely two thumbs up so Kiss & Tell, I will come back for more ^_^

Their shoes are packed inside pink boxes individually or together wrapped in dustbag and also come with a pair of extra heel tips.

Another additional point for Kiss & Tell is the outstanding and exclusive designs. These two babies are my latest purchase and I could not say anything else except "loving them to the max!"
Note: gel pads are bought separately from Daiso.
Shoe shopping tip: buy 1 size smaller for peep toe heels.
"There is an element of seduction is shoes that doesn't exist for men. A woman can be sexy, charming, witty or shy with her shoes"

:: create your own watch strap ::

Just like other weekends, I stayed up late last night to have my own sweet me-time. I went into my little wardrobe room looking at things and there were the watches, one of it with the handmade studded strap I have made and blogged about many months ago. I was actually looking for an activity and when my eyes saw this particular watch, given by my-then-boyfriend-now-hubby for my birthday many years ago I somehow got a "light bulb" (just like how Gru said it in Despicable Me, if you noticed the scene). The watch has three sets of interchangable straps in white, black and monogram; and me being me, decided to make the fourth one in red so I could match it with my red outfit next time :-P
The Before and the After pic.
It is just a simple one actually, made in less than 30 minutes but the key message that I am sharing here is creating our own watch strap according to our taste, colour, preference and theme is limitless. All we need is a bit of time and effort. 
3 basic items needed:
1. Felt fabric for the strap (other materials: leather, ribbon, printed fabrics)
2. Velcro to secure the strap
3. Ribbon as the deco (other materials: buttons, studs, crystals, etc)
3 easy steps involved:
1. Cut the fabric into a long strap
2. Sew the ribbon to the strap
3.  Stick velcro at each end
Easy? ;-)
...and look who accompanied me last night in his sleep...
That's Neslo.
...and here is my small collection of watches, with different look and style...
I am planning to have a new strap for another watch later, but in more complicated look. Will blog about it once the project is done.
By the way, if any of you is also into DIY / handmade accessories like me, do share your links at the comment section so I could visit your page. Let's support each other because as we know it, sharing is caring *wink wink*
Last but not least, 
to my blog readers.
Thank you for reading :-)
