because movement is seductive

1) When I grow up, I’d like a tire swing behind my house, just like in this photo (via Another Day to Dress Up)

2) The Sartorialist slays me with his captions. This one: “On the street…The Dancer, Berlin” – makes me imagine that she’d break out into a move right after the photo was taken. And the question marks on her shoes is almost too perfect!

3) Ah, a couple that plays together! Sweet. (via A Cup of Jo and Once Wed)

Taken from here, found here.

I’m a daydreamer today, kinda wished I had taken the day off work.

On another (not so dissimilar) note, it’s my birthday tomorrow and I just cannot believe that I’m turning 25. It’s surreal, strange, I don’t know what to feel about it.

La la la! Happy Monday!

And on that (completely different) note, congrats Stephie on the launch of Monday Flying – her spiffy new website about lifestyle, travel and cities!

My family in Perth, Australia

Me and my mum in India!

No idea where this is! Somewhere with a giant hand.

My parents in..London i think.

Found these old photos and decided to scan them. My mom wore such amazing outfits then! I wouldn’t mind wearing some of these now! Unfortunately I can’t find the photos of her in her teens – she had Cher-type long hair and wore bell-bottoms all the time! My mom’s damn cool yo! I want her outfits in the 2nd and last photo! Sadly she didn’t keep her clothes..I swear I’ll be keeping my clothes for future daughter!

I think the last photo was taken in London. My mom told me that they didn’t have money to spend so they ate bread for every meal. My dad used to be from SIA so the flights were free! Man those days were good eh?

Ah…these old photos are making me so nostalgic.

Penny wise, pound foolish.

Erfen always says this about me, I’ll scrimp and save when it comes to say, lunch, but then I go and blow all my “savings” on shopping and the like. When I first started working, I went a little bit crazy due to the sudden increase in monthly income, and would spend more than I should have on clothes and some other frivolous stuff. Seeing my decreasing bank account sobered me up a little bit, and I succeeded in tightening the purse strings a little! Really! But then May came along, and because I’m always so happy in May, and think that I deserve a little treat because it’s my birthday month, I’m embarrassed to say that I spent WAY TOO MUCH this month, and it’s only the first week!

Terrible, terrible nabbycat.

But since the milk’s been spilt, I guess there’s nothing to do about it but tell you about my purchases!

Lucyd Acyd Bandage LeggingsLucyd Acyd Opiates Sweater Dress (Mine’s black)

nicolethen‘s spring floral romper

This awesome Baggu backpack that I had a dream about after seeing it on For Me, For You. (And really, if something appears  in your dreams, take it as a sign that you have to buy it!)

And those are just the online purchases! No wonder I am a broke, broke girl! *turns out pockets* And really, online shopping is just so evil!

Also, I have two tickets to a classical concert next Monday. Perchance that any of you are classical music fans and would like to go with me? Let me know if you do! It’s by a French pianist who will play Romantic pieces from Chopin, and a few more composers! I don’t know my classical music but good music is good music right? Promise that I’m not boring company! 😛
