Note it Down

Briefly mentioned in my previous post here,

Let me formally introduce you to my notebook-cum-planner-cum-diary-cum-life!

Here are the pages with the New Balance Feral Collection adverts… cut and modified to fit the pages. Doesn’t exactly leave a lot of space for notes but I don’t care. It looks pretty (:

So here is how it starts off…

The notebook has completely blank pages then I measure and mark the corners of the boxes for each day. The boxes are then free-handed… cos rulers are so le-chey (cumbersome).

Days and dates are added accordingly. And depending on what ‘speaks to me‘ from various magazines, I cut them out and add them to the book for variety and colour! (:

Everyone needs a bit of colour in their life.

Every two pages/weeks or so, I insert a “break” and dedicate a bit more space to things that deserve the space. hahas.

And the rest of the space is kept for meetings, assignment due dates, to-do lists, appointments, etc.

You like?

Little, somewhat time-consuming (these things don’t magically cut themselves and become self-adhesive on its own y’knw!) things make me happy. (:

Take Me Out

I don’t know why, but outfits like these are relegated to my room. In front of the mirror. In the middle of the night. That IS my messy room by the way 😀

I don’t seem to be able to TAKE! (forces legs to move) IT! (gaahhhh, no don’t scurry to put on another outfit!) OUT!

It’s not that it’s a genius outfit, it’s just a whole load of colour and prints which I have never seen myself in outside. Plus my friends might think I burnt a brain cell or two – I usually go out in black, grey, light silver, white, brown or the like.

These are a few of my favourite things

These are A FEW? of my favourite things?

I was looking up some photographs when I found Jeong Mee Yoon’s “The Pink Project”. Yoon was inspired by her 5-year-old daughter’s love for pink and decided to photograph all of her daughter’s favourite pink objects – be it toys, books or stationery. She went on to photograph other parents’ daughters and sons together with their favourite items.

W. O. W. these kids sureee are lucky. They boys even have a hint of smug on their faces! I like spending money and shopping for myself, but I love buying/making gifts too. But having a kid is like, buying stuff for one whole other person! How will I bear to spend thattt much! I can’t imagine.

But why the pink for girls and blue for boys? What about all the colours in between! You know how infants have their photographs taken right after they’ve popped out, the girls are always in pink and the boys are always in blue, and all the gifts from friends and relatives are all colour coded.

When I have my own kids, I want colours like magenta, plum, lime green, canary yellow and all the other yummy colours.

Actually, I need all these colours in my cupboard now.

I put all my clothes into to cupboard, one consists of all the clothes with black and dark colours, the other with white and light colours.

You will see that I am in dire need of a wardrobe detox when I put up pictures, haha.

I think if I laid out all my favourites they’d form a very depressing grayscale. When I have an option of colour/print v black/white, I usually opt for the latter thinking it’ll be easier to match. Hell yea, now I have a lot of things in the same colour to match.

But it’s okay, I will stock up on PRINTS and BRIGHT HAPPY COLOURS on my trip to Hong Kong, in EXACTLY A WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!
