i love pink

Yeah, I admit. I love pink. Proof of that are my pairs of pink high tops, pink flip flops, pink mules, and pink ballerina flats. Though, it wasn’t always so. Actually, I used to hate pink. I was such a tomboy that I would not be caught dead wearing pink. But that was before and no longer. I looove pink! Well, at present anyway. Another color I find myself being drawn to lately is lavender. I even bought a wonderfully soft lavender lace fabric on a whim. *sigh*

Anyhoo, I’ll be posting up a storm soon. At least, I plan to… I hope to… *sigh.* Have a great week! Thanks for dropping by.

DIY: Little White Dress (part 4)

So, here’s the fourth installment of the DIY: LWD (proposed four part) series, as promised. Though, I could still think up several more ways to wear the dress, modify the look, really. Well, in any case, I’m sure I’ll be talking about it here. So, I won’t say that this would be the final installment of the LWD series just yet.  Anyway, as I’ve mentioned here, I planned on adding appliques on the upper part of the LWD’s bodice. Well, I did just that. Here’s the work in progress. SAM_5967 And as proposed, I’ll be the one to wear the dress this time around. Now, the thing is, with the new design I had in mind, there’s simply no occasion, special or otherwise, in my simple existence in which I could wear it to and not seem overdressed. You see, I bought a gorgeous lavender lace fabric a while back and I’ve been itching to use it, one way or the other. So, the new design I came up with turned out to be too dressy than I had hoped, with the lace and all. And I thought, the only time I could probably don the outfit is when I get an invite to a wedding or such. But no such luck. So, I thought a photoshoot would suffice, if chanced upon. And chance upon it I did. As summer draws to a close, Nashy, Mauski and myself have been planning some day trips to various beaches. So, I thought I might slip  in a photoshoot session in one of these trips. With that in mind, I prepared some accessories to go with the beach setting. I made an anklet, a toe ring, a hand harness, and an armband. And just the previous weekend, on Saturday, that opportune time for the photoshoot came. Without further ado, here are the photos…

Yeah, I know. Awkward, as always. *sigh.* Anyway, these were taken by Mauski, by the way. We did these just before heading home. The beach was a two-hour or so drive from the city and we missed our bus. Nashy didn’t go with us that day, busy. I’ll be posting some pictures of that trip here in a future post. But for now, ciao! *update* Oh, by the by… here’s a quick recap of how my sisters wore the LWD…

So, there. Thanks for dropping by! Such is life…. Jette

Happy Birthday Mum!

I’m not as vocal as Kat. But here, I can say “Luv yah!” I’ll admit. I’ve realized, we’re helpless without you… Thank you so much!

Here’s for many more birthdays to celebrate!

Such is life… Jette


nude + color

Yeah. I’d have to admit, I’m a fan. Of Blake Lively. She’s really beautiful. And she’s married to Ryan Reynolds! Hah! Yes, I had been a Van Wilder fan. Perhaps still is. I just love that movie! And, Ryan Reynolds. I can watch that movie over and over, still. I’ll not get tired of it. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds make such a lovely couple, yeah? Anyway, hope you had a great day peeps!


DIY: Braided Back Tee

Had a great day at the beach today, with Nashy and Ms. Mimi. It’s been a while since I’ve gone swimming, and today, I made up for lost times… kind of. Perhaps, I’ll jabber about that on a later post. For now, I’ll just be talking about this tee…


It’s The Mister’s and I’ve had my eye on it for the longest time. It’s an old shirt, which I think had been a favorite of his. But from the moment we spotted it on the shop’s rack, I had been secretly hoping to own it. Basically, I love the shirt’s color…  But it was too big for me. Then recently, I finally found an apt style  to turn it into. I got the inspiration from AquiSo, I plucked up the courage to ask The Mister for his favorite shirt. And few snips here, some braiding there, and a few sewing here, I’ve made a new beach cover up/ tee.  Unfortunately, my restyled shirt didn’t turn out as great as I’d hoped. But I love it nonetheless. I debuted the it today at the beach. I paired it with a customized camo shorts that The Mister designed.

Lookie here…


Anyhoo, I’ll be posting more photos of this trip in a future post. It was a lovely day and I did a lot of swimming, which leaves me wondering why I didn’t crawl straight into bed as soon as I got home. In fact, I don’t feel tired at all. That’s weird. Especially for me… Oh well…

Such is life… Jette
