10 Things and An Award

This is a long overdue thanks to the lovely Sweet of  Confessions of a Drama Queen  for giving me this award:

Thanks, Sweet! ;)

With this, I´m supposed to list 10 things that makes me happy. Instead, I´m listing 10 things that I´m loving right now in no particular order. Let´s get the ball rolling, shall we? ;)

1. Chocolate Painted Toenails

Perfect for my burnt bronze feet, don´t you think? ;)

2. Japanese Street Style Fashion

When looking for inspiration on how to dress up casually, I always go to Style Arena. Tokyo´s major street style fashion site. The Japanese really know their fashion.

3. Daniel Henney

He´s an American-Korean famous model and actor. He is FABULOUS, appeared as Agent Zero in the movie X-Men Origins:Wolverine and cute in the Korean bilingual movie Seducing Mr. Perfect. You can watch the trailer here. He´s my no. 2 crush, the hubz comes 1st of course. ;)

4. Unakite Necklace

A gift from my friend H when she visited her home country Lebanon. She told me it was handmade by a friend of hers who´s a stone collector. All the more sweeter. :)

Unakite has a special significance:

¨ Belief also prevails of its property to help release conditions that have been inhibiting personal growth. It helps people to live in the present and not to dwel (as usual) in the past. The soothing energy of the stone, like magic, insure healthy reproductive system, particularly in women.¨

My friend knows me well. Thanks, H! :)

  5. Chocolate Cupcakes

I can eat these everyday (sans that creamy choco frosting). I want my cupcakes simple and uncomplicated, hence, without the creamy icing on top. That way I can save lots of calories even if I binge on them non-stop for days. Fine, who am I kidding? haha!

6. Spaghetti Bolognese

Instead of oregano I use basil and added diced bell peppers and carrots for that extra crunch when you bite. I had spaghetti bolognese for three days in a row since last Friday and I´m still craving for it until now. Oh so greedy me, that´s why I´ll always continue to be round... in the face, in the middle and in almost everywhere. ;)

Update: I had to remove the spaghetti photo because of copyright infringement. Sorry about that.

7. Lace up Booties

They´re by Erdem. Brown and paint splattered. Perfect for stepping on those reddish- brown autumn leaves on the street. ;)

8. Layering and the Leather Jacket

Except for Chanel´s hairy ensemble, all these layered looks  are so chic! I hope to do this kind of layering with my black leather jacket without robbing the bank. ;)

9. Clutch

Ooooh la la! Enough said.

10. Gray and the Padded Shoulders

top- Zara

I love gray and I have a lot of that color in my closet but are shoulder pads still in? They´re so huge in the late 80s and they made a comeback late last year until early this year. Great for us pear shapes because we can  finally say that we have broad shoulders albeit temporarily. Just don´t overdo it, okay?

And now... passing this award to :

Style Nuggets
Glisters and Blisters
I Am Jing Plojing
Parade of Dresses
A Bit of Our Life and to
Colours and Photographs

Ladies, it doesn´t have to be 10 but I´m curious what are you loving these days. ;)

Hope you all liked my list. Ciao!
