cosy home

Szechuan food doesnt sit well with me.
I have been at home, avoiding all outside contact because of my poor rumbling tummy. I am not sure if i am actually hungry or if the spice is still burning my stomach walls.
Anyway, that aside, it is the weekend and i am going to share some lovely home inspiration pics for a good pick me up. As you would know by now.. i am a homebody and would love to curl up at home for any given chance. These pictures are so comforting, courtesy of Decor 8. Or you can also checkout my lovely friend, Jen's blog, on what she did to her wall.

That's all for now. Have a lovely weekend .

my cool wall

Top Gear has a cool wall on its program, i have mine too!!
Not cars though, but various items i found lovely and interesting. Some of these were recently accquired from the craft fair last saturday.

I put them up on Monday when i had an awesome day off. I cleaned the house, slept in, cooked and i thought to myself, " why not adorn my wall as it is very plain and empty "? !
here it is

It features a range of mixed media, including ribbons, fabric cuts and prints from etsy.
What's your idea of a 'cool wall' ? And how do you style it ?

what do you do with a earthy brown chunky winter cardi ?

Here are some ideas
I have been scouring through Polyvore for winter dressing ideas. Honestly, i am overwhelmed. There are way too many combination of clothes and inspirations... This particular Japanese giant cardi caught my eye. It is slouchy with style, thrown in with some romantism. I could also wear this to work if i want... =)

Luxuriously soft gorgeous Italian leather boots...

My latest aqcuisition : some lovely black boots from Zomp..
I was buckling under pressure when i saw that the shop was having final season clearance sale . So i went in 2 days in a row trying to figure out which pair i should buy..
Eventually, i left with a slim fitted long black boots with stable heels.  It made me even taller, which is a good thing as i hardly wear heels.. But alas, people at work thought that i was way too tall.. I was literally toweing over the guys.. hmm
anyway, that is not going to deter me from wearing it frequently throughout winter..
i love winter .. because i get to don all these lovely wool coats and strut in boots !
By the way, here are some ways i can wear it - courtesy of polyvore again
I need inspiration to help me dress these babies up =)

~ I guess i am going to have a fun winter ~

Giraffe cafe

Recently, thanks to Jennifer, i have been introduced to a lovely cafe at little lonsdale st ~ Giraffe cafe
This place is so quaint with a gentle cross play of japanes zakka and scandinavian style.
It has a lovely ambience and decor, i feel like packing my bags and move in immediately !
I can forsee more visits and even a knitting catch up despite this place being packed all the time.

The best item on the menu.. sesame chicken noodle salad.. thanks to Jen too =)
I need to learn how to make the creamy sesame sauce at home.
Once i figure that out, i will definitely share it here
That's all for now
