In The Night Sky: Woodstock Fashion

Ever since I watch After School’s In the Night Sky music video, I’ve been into these Woodstock era clothes. They really have cool fashion and good tunes back then, though their life style is freaking me out - taking heavy amounts of drugs, getting half naked, and jamming to some of the most amazing music all day long. Now, I never intent to adopt the hippie lifestyle, but I did appreciate the hippie inspired fashions.

They always have on tie-dye t-shirt, frayed jeans, fringed leather vest, feathered or bead hair accessory. Today, this style is back with some modern hippiefied touch. What I like about it is how it looks ‘unkempt’ yet so stylish.

Last year runaway collection~

Emilio Pucci 2011 Collection

Roberto Cavalli 2011 Collection

Some celebrity with Woodstock inspired style.

I should get this fringed top first eh? Or leather fringed bag?

Or this biker-chic vest?

Or some tied-dye shirt~

And need to buy lotsa accessories too~

Ah, I really thought this style suit me at the moment, cause now that I've put on weight, loose fitting clothes are my only solution~ kekekekek. Lagipun, bagus untuk muslimah, bukan? :DDD Now, the question is, can I pull this kind of look? How do I adopt it into my wardrobe without making a  fashion disaster? I hope our hijabies fashionista will try this look soon so I can have some inspiration~

p/s: Hey, anyone care to tell me the difference between boho, hippies and gypsy? I'm kind of confused~ :DD

Fly Me to the Moon

Okay, I've been listening to this soulful cover of an old song, Fly Me To The Moon by Olivia Ong. Now, I don't listen to bossa nova genre a lot, but once in a while when I'm in 'that mood', I'm going for more peaceful  tunes. So I was obviously in 'that mood' lately when I got it re-peat-peat-peat-peat on my itunes for  a week now. The song is so sweet and Olivia's voice is oh-so-dream like - the combination is too perfect!

And I found this! A Fly Me to the Moon cover by Jason Mraz, the version I would listen to when I'm not in 'that mood'. How I wish he would make an official record for this song :DD

Sing along everyone?

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On jupiter and mars

In other words, hold my hand
In other words, darling kiss me

Fill my heart with songs
Let me sing forever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore

In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you

Sweet huh? And Olivia Ong will be coming to Kuala Lumpur this coming February. Anyone want to take me there? :DDDD

New Year's Intentions

Hello 2012!

So it’s been a year now since I started this blog. How has my blog affected my life so far? I’m not sure, but it keeps me motivated enough to accomplish something every week. I did trying to do something exciting or go somewhere interesting every weekend - though only a few managed to get onto this blog. I just want to share with others the things I see or feel at certain point of my life. And make connection with people with the same passion. A place where I seek for solutions and inspirations and nothing else.

I won’t call this as New Year resolution because if I put it that way, it will never work. This is my… err New Year Intention, yeah. So this year I hope that I can  want to:

1. Grad! This! I really really hope that I can finish my thesis writing soon and grad this year! Then hopefully get a better job! Amin~

2. Make more saving (read: stop shopping unnecessary thing).

3. Drink less coffee - You know how they say coffee have a good effect on your health like help reduce the chance to get cancer/Alzheimer/stroke, prevent depression and energy boast? The later is why I think I need my daily coffee. I drank coffee at least once a day before going to sleep (okay, I need some energy boaster just in case I get a nightmare, so I got some spare energy to fight whatever it was in my dream, kekekek). Normally, I had coffee in between my work, before and after lunch. Now, just how much caffeine have I consumes this past one year? I’m not saying that I’m gonna stop drinking coffee (I don’t think I’m ready for that, yet :D) but I need to reduce it a bit. Say, one cup a day?

4. Start exercise - Thin doesn’t mean that you don’t need to exercise! Exercise is very important for everyone to keep ones in a good health. I know this fact but still, I never exercise (only during a time when I get so motivated to have a flat stomach that I start do sit up for, err…. two weeks? :PPP). Okay, dancing to your favorite songs in front of the mirror doesn’t count as exercising. So many excuses I’ve created to avoid exercising: balik lambat from work lah, hari nampak cam nak hujanlah, takde kawan nak jogging sama-samalah, bla bla bla. So now that I think I should start to live a healthy life, what is more convenience for a lazy buzy girl like me than to start running on a treadmill? I actually can easily do this every day. Getting off late from work? The treadmill isn’t going anywhere! Hari nak hujan? No problem, you can still run thousand miles even if it was raining heavily outside! No one to accompany? Ei, hello, mana ada orang lari on treadmill beramai-ramai. Okay? No more excuses! Now I need a pair of good running shoes. And a good sport outfit. Looks like there is some shopping to do, hooray!

5. Cure my sinusitis - Because I keep ignoring my sinus, now I think it’s getting worst. Normal flu medicines (Clarinase, Clarityne, Loratadine) are ineffective to me. I’ve tried the smoke treatment before but it makes me suffocated. Anyone knows other great way to treat sinus? I don’t care if it is internal and external cure, as long as it work and easy for me to do the treatment by myself. Came across this article and maybe it worth a try? And there is a lot of pills/supplement like Ezibreathe.  Anyone has tried it before? Does it work?

6. Make as many posts to this blog as possible :D And from that, I hope to make new friends with the same passion and interest. And of course build beautiful memories with the existing one~

So that’s all I can think for now.  I hope this year will be a great one for me and for you too. Be good people!

p/s: those cartoons are only meant for jokes. I don't hate New Year's Resolution that much~
