Long Weekends

I could have gone to the beach or somewhere far from the city for the two long weekends that came last month, but I was just lazy to plan anything.  I probably spent more time complaining about not being able to go on vacation vs. planning or going on one.

I decided to stop being so whiny at times when I can really tell myself to shut up and just keep myself busy. Like maybe dig into my plastic bin of projects and go on a tv marathon (hello, Revenge). So I did both and finally got around to making this pearl collar:

Yes, I’m not over collars yet. They are so pretty and they might as well be the equivalent of wearing a tie to make things more “office-friendly”.

I’ve been meaning to finish this lil baby for a long time now, but I was just really lazy. And somewhere along the way, I realized that the first one I made had an odd shape and lost interest when I had to re-do everything. Since I haven’t found the kind of pearl collar that I like, I might as well continue, right? Glad I did!

Another craft project I had in mind was to make something out of a crate I got from a gift packaging last year. I couldn’t decide whether I should make it into a closet drawer or something until I saw this:

And so Funny got a bed upgrade that day:

The mattress was originally propped up higher than the crate, but my brother said that Funny likes to lean towards stuff when she sleeps, so I removed some of the cushions and did not take out one of the sides.

Here’s an example of leaning against “stuff”:


And speaking of getting stuff done–guess who ate her words when she said she won’t be reading A Song of Ice and Fire until the HBO series is over?!

I can’t help it! 🙂

I had so many questions after watching season 2, so I decided to pick up the books. I said I would only read the corresponding book after each season, but after Clash of the Kings, I just can’t stay away! 🙂 As you can see, my cat and I have the same reactions when it comes to Jon Snow/Daenerys chapters. Haha.

You know November’s gonna be awesome despite the retrograde when you’ve got two long weekends making way for it!


Hello Second Half of 2012

It’s the second half of the year and I just need to revisit my list of to-dos (okay, resolutions–but there is a semblance of urgency in “to-do”) and I just want to say–I’ve done a pretty swell job so far, except for visiting a new destination. Which is okay, because I’ve got six months to do that!

I’ve been in all sorts of moods lately, and most of the time it’s that kind of mood where you can’t really pin down if you’re just anxious, sad, bratty, or just in need of a LOT of chocolate. Or an exaggeration of everything. Haha. I would normally go out and buy something random, but I’ve been forcing myself not to buy anything unnecessary (my trick is that I always think that it’s going to that “go somewhere new” fund, which works like 70% of the time..hahaha) and wear LOTS of color.

I made a cuff out of old necklace beads, a piece of fabric, and some velcro.

And I’m still obsessed with cute collars. I found an old pair of plastic earrings I bought in Bangkok a couple of years ago. I pinned them on my collar tips and they turned out pretty cute!

I also gave in to reading A Game of Thrones since I was getting so much spoilers from friends who read the book. I wanted to not know what was going to happen in the series but I just wanted to know the back stories so I wouldn’t confuse the characters further or think that Ned Stark’s real name is Neddard. Sorry.

Since I can’t have a direwolf in real life, I am calling Funny my direcat (I know, the puns are getting painful!) and made her a scarf out of scrap fabric, just so I can Instagram it and caption it “Winter is coming!” 😐


Yup. Told ya I’ve been “busy”.

Morning (Wardrobe) Problems!

I think when I say “I’ve nothing to wear!?” it means “I’m not inspired!” or “I don’t know what I have in my closet!”

Shopping ban’s not yet over. I’ve a couple of unfinished DIY projects too. That means I have to make do with whatever is in my closet. And I have to make an inventory of my closet. And I have to do it soon, because I can’t be late for work again. and I can’t go out looking like a slob. That’s just not how we roll.

Ah, problems. Haha.
