True but..

My Christmas tree at home is a small green one. And we're going away on Christmas so I might just buy some cooked meals to celebrate but we now have pudding and wine to go with anything. :)

You Should Have a Purple Christmas Tree

For you, the holidays represent a time of creativity and expression.

There's no way you'd do something bland simply for tradition's sake.

You are an independent person, and you definitely do the holidays your own way.

And you're decadent enough to go way over the top with any unusual holiday ideas you have.

Your purple tree would look great with: Purple lights and ornaments

You should spend Christmas Eve watching: A Christmas Story

What you should bake for Santa: "Kitchen sink" cookies - with a ton of things in them

For the Big Guy

Been browsing around Pumpkin Patch and found these lovely.

We are not due to buy Jens anymore summer clothes so I'll just contend myself with looking. If ever, we would be buying him winter clothes soon if there are specials as he has grown out of his winter clothes. But it'll have to wait - storage is essentials and we are running out of space. Not that we are keeping Ferrari parts at home. It's just Jens stuff is growing every month.


Shoes in VS Fashion Show

Saw some awesome shoes used in the VS Fashion Show. Thought of sharing it here.

Although, I myself wear neutral coloured shoes, I like candy coloured pairs as well. I just don't see the point of buying multi-coloured ones as it would be un-appropriate in my industry - or my fashion sense that is. I always stick to basic colours (as some of the pleasanton motorcycle accident attorney would have done). But, window shopping is always a treat.


Fabric Shoes 2

I always like Fabric Shoes especially on Espadrilles. Some that I saw locally has some fibre on the heels. I wanted to buy but the practical side of me thinks that I can only use it in summer or dry season. It also means that it would be a waste to use in my hometown as you have to walk on the ground dirt.

I saw these pair in shoeblog and I really like them. They will surely hold a good weight that has just been under a quick weight loss.

Shortie Shorts

In my side of the world, it’s summer. And what’s in now is denim shorts. You can have it just above the knee or too low to show your butt cheeks.

Prices range from 50 to I think 500 bucks, depending on the brand. But it was shown on ACA how to transform your last year’s denim pants to this years “in” short pants. The tools needed? Scissors, grater and fork. No we’re not eating it. First cut the pants up to the length you prefer and to give it a rugged worn look, run the form on the hem – that way, you can either let them loose or fold them up. You can also run the grater on the part that you want to show some hidden flesh.

I think for some the shorter, the better. It's not as if you're going to wear them to the communion invitations. Mulling mode if we'll attack one of my demin pants or shorts.


Is It or Is It Not?

The gossip labelling Demi's body to he Anja Rubik's is really degrading. I think, W and Demi wouldn't stoop to that level to show how fit Moore is. I mean, they are high profile institutions not some no-name wanna-be's trying to catch media attention. I would say it has been polished to show some imperfection captured by the camera (and take some un wanted pounds that exercise and maybe weight loss diet pill didn't eliminate) but hey, almost all of the print and visual media do that now a days. Even the junk mail I get are glossed up.

Anyway, Demi Moore and W know the truth and at the end of the day, it's them who'll carry the guilt but is guilt is used in Fashion and Movie?

Marry Me?

I didn’t see the movie The Proposal in the cinema. So I waited for almost 3 months (if my memory serves me right) for the DVD release but I didn’t buy it either when it was out. I just rented one last night (overnight for new releases).

I enjoyed it although there seems to be not enough romantic or life changing scenes to make them realise that they love each other at the end. I know it’s a movie length not a life time. It didn’t fall short of my expectation as I didn’t have any. I just want to see more moments of Margaret and Andrew together. Well, I suppose seeing each other naked was enough or is it not?

I realised that since the movie is not just focused on the two of them but also with his family and the lack of it on Margaret’s side. I think it is sweet that she realised how special he is from his family and friends. When she realised it, it reminded her the feelings of being loved and having a family. Not just your typical rom-com, I would say.

I think Sandra Bullock is really sexy in the movie. And I love the Louboutin pumps she’s wearing on the poster.

Looking back, there are lots of scenes that I like. And I might buy a copy of the DVD in addition to my collection of light rom-com movies.

Talking of shopping, I haven’t bought any Christmas gifts yet (I think, laptop would be out of the picture). I’m planning on buying presents from New South Wales on our holiday.



The hunt for the elusive sling/body bag is still on. I haven’t bought any yet. I might have found one that I like the style but I don’t like the price. Now, I’m mulling over this one in ebay.

It’s not dear but my question is, will it be appropriate for any occasion. I don’t want to amass body bags anymore than necessary so I want to buy something that will be suitable for all occasion and places – travel, casual, beach, work, shopping, etc. I’m into body bags now as they are quite handy especially for a Mum like me with a very handful toddler.

Maybe, I can have a go at it when the bidding time is nearing its end as I am not buying anything anyway (especially acne treatment – I’m over that).
