Lion & Skull Rings

Gold rings don't have to come in pure elegance. They might, like these, appear in a rock gothic way definitely not for the feint-hearted...from Stephen Einhorn....


Gosh...wish I had the money to have these....love em!! And I bet Mary-Kate Olsen would love em too....;p What's more interesting about these rings, is that they come sealed inside a romantic heart packaging that has to be broken open...a heart that is meant to be broken? Hhhmm....:)

Before They Scream 'Happy New Year'...

...let me make some wishes....


hhmm....I hope my wishes come true...:)

Well, HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!!!! As the new year unfolds, may you be blessed with the new beginnings..may each new day bring us new joys and new hopes....:)

XOXO,

-Diana-

Out of the Navy Blue

What a fortunate day to have no plans of shopping but came across a charming shirt on a 50% discount. Yayyy!!

Yes, I plan to wear it with my yellow tights and leapord-print flats...

My First Win on Ebay!!

I've always been curious on how it’s like to shop on Ebay. I was lucky enough to have Intan lending me her account so I could browse and try to watch and bid and, you know, all those things hehehhe. After a long struggle and being outbid almost all the time (this seriously pisses me off), I finally won and got myself a mini hat for ONLY $0.99 hihihihi....’m so happyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy....


We'll see how it works on my head 2 weeks from now....:)

What I Need From Topshop

It's new year tomorrow...so having new items would be great hehehe...

The Navy Pinstripe Blazer...the black kimono sleeve dress...

Printed leggings...and my favorite, the metallic fringed floral scarf...

Congratulations, Eci!!

Today was a big happy day for my dearest friend, Eci, as she finally got married to the love of her life....sigh, lucky her...:) Her wedding was in the morning, so I thought of wearing something light...I didn't have much options though as most of my dresses are in black, so this is what I wore...


Btw I took Intan along since I didn't wanna come to the wedding alone...my lil' sis did a better job than I did by wearing this simple yellow dress that looked lovely on her...:)


I do consider myself a romantic person so I get touched very easily when it comes to love and romance especially weddings hehehhe....Congratulations my Eci, may your love be full of passion, be timeless and forever remain...love you....:)

Embellish My Head

I admire how Tarina Tarantino mixed tulle, ribbons, velvet, swarovski crystals, glass pearls and even skull-shaped ornaments to create such gorgeous, delicate and sweet hair accessories...they're not within my means but they do give me a lot of ideas for some DIYs....:)


Black Out

It's time for a night out!! :)

Happy Girlfriend & Sister's Week!!

Got this from a random email, but felt that the message was too sweet to be ignored...here's to my girls...:)
“I am only as strong as the caffeine I drink, the hair spray I use and the girlfriends I have.”

Why do we only have parties for each other when one of us gets married, pregnant, has a birthday, or retires?

What would most of us do without our sisters, confidants, and shopping, lunching and traveling girlfriends?

Let's celebrate each other for each other's sake!

Someone will always be prettier...someone will always be smarter...
Their house will be bigger
...they will drive a better car...
Their children will do better in school
...and their husband will fix more things around the house...

So...??? Let it go, and be happy! Love yourself and your circumstances.

Think about it...
The prettiest woman in the world can have trouble in her heart.
And the most highly favored woman on your job may be unable to have children.
And the richest woman you know, she's got the car, the house, the clothes... might be lonely.
And the word says if 'I have not Love, I have nothing.'

So, again, love yourself...love who you are. Look in the mirror in the morning, and smile and say...

“I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!”

Winners make things happen, losers let things happen. Be blessed ladies and pass this on to encourage another woman...to the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world….

Love you my dear girlfriends....:)

Death by Chocolate

Chocolate has caused me death, because the supposedly mouth-watering chocolate waffle ice cream turned out to be in poor taste. Such a disenchantment....:(

Anyhow, today was an incredibly pleasing day as I unintentionally met a lot of my friends in Pondok Indah Mall...Intan, Didiet, Jengay, Dhanika, Iki, Indira, Ramin, Pute, Ramin...woah...that's a lot for a coincidence heheh....



My actual plan was to get some black satin trousers but ended up in me buying a black blazer instead…forgive me Sharjeel for I have committed a sin again heheheheh … (why am I laughing??)

Happy Birthday

Yes, happy birthday to me....yay. Birthdays are supposed to be happy, but for me, well, let's keep it quiet this time. It’s been a very tough year I must say, so I’ll spend my time today to do some reflection on my life and what I should be improving....

Btw, I got a gift from my parents…

Guess you know what’s inside heheh…but yeah, I've directly put them all in my savings so no shopping for me this time…now that's an improvement already...:)

Ps: I met Woro aka Mrs. Pradono today....she looked lovely as usual....:)

Buckle My Dress

I came across an old dress of mine today, which fortunately has this buckle detail that makes it perfect for some fun...


So just thought of doing some layers to it...hhmm...

Lorick for Gossip Girl

I heart the series Gossip Girl, and it is undeniably true that the main spotlight is not on Serena, Blair, nor the story, but the…what people? Yes, the fashion. And for our information, those Waldorf designs on the movie are actually real life creations of Abigail Lorick from New York. The brand; Lorick.

Lorick says:

"It’s not enough to wear beautiful clothes, you have to act the part."

So here are some tips to be a Lorick Lady:

  1. In the presence of others: Never stare.
  2. Posture: Never Slouch.
  3. When invited: Never ask who else will be attending or what will be served.
  4. At an event: Never over stay your welcome.

Please Stop...

I know that this cyber space lacks the protection of our exclusive rights. I mean, when we can simply use a nickname and hide our real identity, well wouldn’t it be easy as well to just use other people’s artwork without permission? You know, as if I can hunt them down for real and take legal action. Hmmphh…I wish I could. Well, I can actually....but....never mind....heheh. So, knowing all the consequences, I should have realized that these sort of things will occur when playing in the world of internet….

Nevertheless, knowing all the realities one can face, I still get pissed after so many times spotting my artwork on someone else’s page. It’s like…”Man!!! What the..!??”

I found this girl using my photo as her friendster background…how sweet…in a way…

Origami Skirt

My frequency of shopping is higher than the times I actually go out dressed up. As such, my favorite items are usually left unworn. Like my black origami skirt that I adore so much…it’s been hanging inside my closet ever since I bought it and waiting for the chance to be finally introduced to the world...hehhe...

Anyhow, I am very much inspired by the Olsens, that I’ll probably wear the skirt in Ashley’s way.


I guess I'll need to buy these...

Those Happy Tights

Playing with colors is certainly not a sin. But when you’re wearing colored tights, do keep everything else but the tights black or neutral-colored, please. You may go wild sometimes, but for me, I'll let the tights do the talking at all times…:)

Your True Style

Our laziest times of dressing to the nines and put on something neat actually signify the moments where we in fact present our true style. You know, things that you put on automatically without thinking too much is just who you truly are.

I love to doll up, wearing this and that, but there are times when I just have to rush or don’t feel like putting too much effort on my outfit as I am just going out to drive my mom somewhere. Well, at those regular times, I always turn to jeans and long-sleeve tops, either shirts or sweaters. I know it sounds boring, but that package is the most comfortable clothes I can ever imagine. Another element, a hat!! You know, to hide the un-brushed hair heheheh…



What about you?? :)

.

All I Want For New Year...

Main target:
- yummy purple satin turban

Happy Eid Everyone!!!

There's nothing much to say today besides that I woke up pretty early and had my favorite Burger King's Mushroom Swiss burger for lunch....

Have a nice day people...:)
