PINK TOAST

Just two days ago, the four ladies at home were doing shopping over whatsapp as early as 5am because the man was doing some last minute shopping before he catches his flight back home. For 3.5 hours the father went around, took some pictures in the shops and we'd pick what we want over the family whatsapp group. Come to think about that morning, it was actually quite strange because the house was still dark, everybody were in their own rooms and it seem like the house was still on snooze. Yet the most active thing in the house were the iPhones. It was so busy i thought the radiation might just kill me before i get to meet and embrace my new loves- the dress, bag and shoe of course.

Thankfully, everyone survived that morning.
By the way, those are peanut butter & banana toast on my ears, they're a pair of earrings by a beloved friend for Christmas. They don't only work as earrings but are really amazing in the mouth too. Like the real spread and the real fruit and the real toast. Either that, toast with nutella & banana or strawberry are equally fabulous. Take my advice, your day will surely be made as soon as you treat yourself to the awesome mix.

These days, i've been eating, catching up with precious friends and eating even more while exercising my jaws away. I have finally visited some great cafes with even greater lemon tarts that "tastes of pure lemon flavour, it has that zingy sharp awake-your-tastebuds kind of flavour, with enough sugar to make the bitterness palatable but still allowing the sharpness of lemon to linger on. The custard melts as if thick cream and the buttery pastry delivers a crumbly contrast. This is my perfect lemon tart." That is just the right way to describe the lemon tart that i had from Bakers & Cook. Although it was quoted from a food blogger, AZ√ČLIA, i could completely comprehend every word that was typed to describe the memory i had of the tart. Yumz.

Before i go on and try to be a food blogger and tell you about all the quiche, waffles, danishes and other pastries that i had in the last two weeks, i shall put the food talk on pause. May you not feel too hungry after reading this post if not then drop everything and go make yourself a toast right now.
Have fun growing a tummy with me!

White Head Structure




Black maxi dress: Miss Selfridge, Earrings: Topshop


It has been so many weeks, i could barely remember when was the last time i had my last post up and i'm so sorry about the really long hiatus. This time i'm done with my submissions for foundation and here i am about to show and tell you a bit about what have been taking up my time away from you all.

This project was called the "White Wearable Head Structure" and we were only suppose to work with  any kind of typically white paper. As for the joint methods, if i remember correctly, we could use any way except for tying. For my headgear, i chose the baking(off white+semi hard) and tissue paper(blueish+soft) mainly for the difference with the colors. Used the white glue, hot glue, stick glue and masking tape as the joint methods, and wires to build a strong structure below all the whites.

If you're wondering how it should be worn, the neck area of the structure was made to the size of my neck and the continual flow of the form rests on the shoulder. A wire ear support is also attached with the whole structure for it to stay steadily on the head.

Overall, this headgear was inspired by the research that i did which came out as mostly organic forms and the texture from the fish scales. The most laborious process of this project was probably the rolling of the papers, stripes of thick and thin, tissue and baking papers for the fish scale inspired texture and the irregular size stripes to wrap around the wires.

Personally, it was an enjoyable project to work on and if i were to create another headgear i would consider making one that gives more three dimensional impact. What do you suggest?
