leave a comment »

Hafsteinn Juliusson is a product designer from Iceland and these are 2 examples of ides from him which i think are really quirky yet can ideas these this work?

Yeah the jewelery actually is a living thing that grows hence dont forget to water and feed it yeah!

Indeed a brilliant ideas i find this one. Anyone who has an addiction to junk food, this is a good solution to keep indulging and loose the pounds. I’m curious how would the chips taste and how is the texture like when you’re actually eating PAPER!!!!

An affair to remember.

leave a comment »

The whole reason my family made the trip down south to Singapore was to attend my brothers registration of marriage.

And as always, i was assigned family stylist by noneother then myself. I’m glad i could help everyone be their best on that special day. You can see me in action helping my mom out with her makeup. I also helped her with her hair. I’m getting the hang of using velcro rollers now. I also helped my mom trim her hair so that she’s have more layers to it which would really help bring out the curls on different layers. As a result she looked beautifull. My younger bro looked polished with his purple shirt which he and myself went looking for it high and low. I was very particular in looking for that exact colour and when we finnally found it, we were so pleased to know it was on sale. So basically our efforts paid off really well. As for dad i wanted him to try a sleek striped shirt which would complement my moms outfit. As for the cople of the day, i’ll lets the pictures speak for themselves. Just so you know i had nothing to do with their outfits for the day!

The food that night was not bad. It was a mix of Itallian, Western,Chinese, Japanese, and Thai cuisines. That’s a lot right? Well it was a good mix i have to say. There were pasta with seafood marinara sauce, teriyaki chicken, roasted lamb with brown sauce, soft shell crab with chicken floss, japanese tofu cooked in a thai style gravy, chinese style veggies and some seafood starters with salads. All in all, it was a great night as i had a chance to see my parent on the dance floor in action for the first time.

It has been some time now i haven’t been updating my blog. Past few weeks have been busy but somewhat eventfull. I had the clear off any outstanding jobs for my former company and was busy at my new office as well. In between, i had a short trip to Singapore to attend my brothers registration of marriage (ROM) to his college sweetheart. It was a nice dinner at this beautiful place which looks much better in the night when it was darker since you couldnt see the unsightly tiny bits stuff floating on the waters by the seashore. Yeah a romantic outdoorsy place by the sea. Congratulations to both of them!

On a more serious note :P, as if i need to mention anymore, i assumed the role of a personal stylist to my family. Will be posting the pictures for that on another posting. As well as a few more functions that my family attended where i lend a magical touch to my mom.

For now that shall be all. I’ll be back with pics soon..

Fashion Moodboard’s

leave a comment »

I’ve recently stumble upon a very interesting website called Polyvore. The site lets u assemble you own moodboard’s as i call it for you outfits of choice. Please visit the site and follow the simple instructions on how to use the site and have fun. I did and i can’t get off it since.

Above is the two choice that i have made for myself for my brothers dinner function next month.. most likely i will go with the first choice altough i must say the second choice is really much cooler. But it is easier to put together the first choice. we’ll see how it goes next month. Until then i’ll be on Polyvore playing away……

Green + Gold Combination…

with 2 comments

green + gold

Ta da!

This, i would like to be known as my first official attemp at styling someone, (its my mom actually nonetheless i treated her like how any professional would :P) the occasion was for a relations 60th birthday celebration. I styled her from head to toe, including her hair, make up, clothes and accessories.

01. The front and back view of the not bad at all for a first time hair do. I’ve never used velcro hair rollers before so i had my reservations but i must say i’m very pleased with the result. Not much heat was applied which is good for the hair. All i did was blow dry the damp hair, which an anti frizz hair serum was applied to before since her hair tend to be frizzy. After drying, i placed curlers in place and allowed it to set overnight. Refer to this tutorial for guidance (they used hot rollers but i tried it with velcro ones ). A simple process which took me about an hour to do.

02. The rattan clutch which is suitable for any day functions or even night functions depending on how you match and pair it with the whole look. Since it was a day affair it not suitable to carry a flash or heavily embellished clutch.

03. & 04. Inspiration came from these beautiful clutches from Kotur. They come in a variety of colour but the natural wood colour ones are the best.

05. The Basket Bag my mom used to carry to work when she was a teacher back in her younger days. It is still in good condition except its missing a cover which was removed to re-use it now as a flower arrangement basket. How creative.

06. A full body shot pose. The shoes were so sweet.

07. Mom and Dad at home posing for me.

08. Mom at the birthday party looking beautifull then ever.

my logo
This weekend will be an eventfull one. Putting my design and stylist skills to good use. The victim none other then my beloved mother. But i’m sure she’ll have a blast of a time herself. Mom grew up with 5 boys in her family and with her own family she had 3 boys. She’s been surrounded by boys and you can’t blame her if its rubbed of her a little.. but looking back from the photos’s of her back in her younger days i cant helf but admire her sense of style. Shoe may not be a fashionista back then but somehow she has a sense of style. I will post the picture up sometime soon. She has this red rattan basket like bag she used to carry to work and i have to say i like her sense of style.. but its sad that i dont see that side of her now but i’d like to see it come out.. My mom is almost 60 and if i can tastefully style her and help her find that person she was once before… then i know where i stand with my skill.. i will post up pics of my weekend escapades next week.. till then i shall be excited as ever.. 🙂

i’m back…

leave a comment »

its was long ago that i wrote down here that i was going to kick start the year 2008 with a bang and this is sure one hell of a soft bang… hardly a bang i would say. But I’m back… at least that’s a start right.. many things had been happening lately… Imissed an opportunity in applying for a job in a fashion merchandising company, a rather important and famous one here in Malaysia. Just when i got serious about it and they closed the job application. It was rather a sad day for me when i found out. Well the job hunt continues. 

I’ve manage to sew a scarf or rather a… wait I’m not sure whats its called. I’m sure its not a scarf, that sound a bit girlie for something a guy would wear around his neck. this i would consider my first foray into the serious world of fashion. I’m planning to construct this new dress i design. I’ll post some pictures up when its done.
