Detachable Sailor Collar

Very much in love with my recent purchase from The Naked Lace Co. It’s a detachable sailor collar that I had slightly modified from her original designs to fit daily wear ^-^

It was some months ago (or maybe a year ago, I cannot recall anymore) that I saw Warukatta’s ig post from her trip to Japan and she was wearing this cute sailor top. I dropped a comment asking where she got it from (wasn’t really expecting any response given how famous she is nau) but she actually replied back! She said it was a detachable sailor collar from WEGO. That’s amazing! One of my claim to fame experiences haha. Anyway let’s not get sidetracked XD

From then on I’ve been trying to find something similar but failed. I actually found The Naked Lace Co’s page already but I don’t think I was employed back then and messaged if I could instead promote her stuff on here and IG (whaahaha). I got no response so I was too embarrassed lmao!!
But now I have it and I’m so satisfied and happy ^____^ This detachable collar goes really well with lots of my wardrobe pieces! It goes well high neck or turtle necks, non-collared dresses and so much more~ On my next pay day I’m definitely getting a another one in white for my black pieces.

Only thing to consider is how to make them stay put. As they move quite a lot and you have to adjust them here and there but other than that I’m really happy I got this!

New Chapter Begins

Hello, I think I’m happy and motivated enough to blog here again. I have some identity crisis going on that just makes me run and hide away from all the things I love to do. It’s just mainly LIFE happening or adulting on the most part.

I always pride myself being adaptable but I guess I’m not as resilient as I think I am. When things don’t go the way I want them to I frustrate, refuse to function, sulk, then blame people how miserable I’ve become. I’m still under this cycle but I acknowledge it now and becoming aware is always the first step to change for the better ahah.

In any case, let us not dwell on negativity! Tons of stuff happened while I was gone. I blogged on Medium for a bit! I really love the app. I can blog straight from my iPhone which is very on the go. However I ceased updating it because life just got more intense. Haha.

Here’s a quick recap:

  • ♡ I got two bearded dragons (bday present for myself)
  • ♡ Passed my six months probation at work! Yay £50 pay increase lmao
  • ♡ I got two frogs (Keroppi and Keroro); they died after almost a month with me :(
  • ♡ I got my nose pierced
  • ♡ I got my first tattoo!
  • ♡ I got two frogs again (Momo and Koppi) still alive as we speak!
  • ♡ Bleached my hair to blonde
  • ♡ Applied for an internal position at work and got accepted

So that’s basically it. Haha.

Style wise, I think I’m ready to move on from just wearing black and tone down to wear muted and earth tones. I just don’t have the dedication and time anymore. So instead of everything revolving around my style, my style now revolves on my daily life/routine- which is work and pets. I also think fall is the perfect time for the transition along with starting my new role in my job.

If my positive outlooks become consistent, I might post here again often so hopefully that will be the case.

Hanami | 桜

🌸🌳🌸One of my dreams has always been to witness cherry blossom trees blooming in all it’s glory! It partially came true when I went last Wednesday to Regent’s Park and went on a little stroll by myself ^_^ I honestly thought I won’t be able to make it as I was ill for a week or two and have gotten very lazy going out. But I’m glad I went out of my way and forced myself to central London only for this.

The trees are no longer in complete bloom, rather, they are now starting to wither. I will try again next year. Hopefully that time, I’m with friends, and we’re all going to have a picnic underneath the trees! Cause I feel like it’s the proper way to celebrate it. Haha.

For now have some selfies. I took a lot just because.

Sweet Spring。✧♡

Distracting myself from real life struggles and priorities, I decided that window shopping is the way to go lol. I’ve been really struggling looking for clothes that I really really like and it’s been a while since a piece of garment within my reach and budget has made me sleepless and brought out the desperate shopper in me. And you know how it is with clothes, you can never really have enough until you finally found your a timeless pieces (which is highly subjective, any brand and line may claim their clothes are timeless but it doesn’t mean they really are lol).

Anyway, yeah I decided to ask myself, what do I really want to wear? Living in the city, I do have all the high street brands at my disposal but why am I not thrilled to do anymore ootds or outfit posts? What type of clothing will bring back my love for dressing up like I used to? So what do I do, head on to Instagram and check which users makes me happy to see their ootd’s and clothing pieces.

Ultimately, I’ve narrowed it down to @nyeong.e’s which made my life so easier as she actually has her own shop and models the clothes herself (and her boyfriend). The prices are not too bad as well when converted to £.

Here’s the selection of clothes that really caught my attention and would definitely wear (if the fit and look are faithful to pictures!).

These pieces reminds of Yohji, Comme Des Garcons, Casey Casey, Muku, Muji, to name a few.

Good thing about Nyeong-Closet is that they do ship worldwide. I’m still in the process of contacting them how as I’m having difficulty signing up to their website. I’ll give an update! If everything fails, might use for their services.

Ahh just when things are starting to look up a terrible thing happened!! I got suspended at work! Ahaha. It’s not like I misbehaved or something. I made a careless mistake that led to something serious. I think it’s because of my clumsiness. But Adam believes I am in no way at fault (thank you for cheering me up!!). It was just truly unfortunate, I guess. It’s been three days now, and still no update regarding the ‘investigation’. It’s really put me down and made me doubt my self since I’ve been working really hard to ace my under-probation performance. My supervisor knows how much I want to progress and he’s always been pleased with my work ethics, I’m so sad as well to let him down.

I don’t know if this will lead to termination but I guess I should start looking for another job. This time off has given me some time to reflect why I shouldn’t be sulking and convince myself that if ever, this is just another chapter and even though it’s hard and painful sometimes, I do have to trust the process (in the big scheme of things).

Adam rushed to me when he found out, he's been cheering me up and giving me moral support all this time, so even though I'm worried and sad, I really can't be that down. *u*

The biggest thing I feel guilty about if ever I lose my job, would be that I convinced my mom to move here in London because It’s nearer where I work haha.

Ah life..*sigh*


Last Wednesday, I received a call from the office asking me to discuss the matter. As of yesterday, they officially welcomed me back with the good news that they're no longer taking the matter further. I am happy and sad at the same time. Happy that I won't lose the job and current stability it offers. Sad that I still don't have anywhere to go and a part of me wants them sack me any way? I know I'm not making sense. It's a conflict.

Room Update

I’m really happy at how my room looks at the moment. I got the duvet set on Depop and I totally underestimated how much change it can bring to a room. So I think one of the lessons I learned is that if you spend a lot of time inside your room, invest in a good bedding materials as it really freshen up the space.

Adam rearranged the table’s position, it just made more sense to have it against the window instead of direct opposite our bed. It freed more space and suddenly it isn’t so cramped compared before. Also I do love that if take I mirror shots the plants will be included as well haha. If I’m going to be honest, a lot of consideration has been put to how picturesque the room should be. I don’t know. I’m just a really visual person.
Pinterest played a huge role and it really helped me making decisions when buying stuff. Still, I think there’s a lot of room for improvement (pardon the pun). One of our neighbours threw their shelf away and we asked permission to adopt it, the thing is I really don’t have any use for a shelf aside from it being a TV table. I’m thinking of filling it with curious oddities (i.e. stuffed crow/raven) however that will of course cost me a fortune lol. So if you guys have any ideas or recommendation please just let me know!
