Mon Monogram

I thought my next blog post would be after my finals. However, I just had to blog about this moment. 

Ever since last year, when I learned about Louis Vuitton's Mon Monogram from a fashion history book, I've been hankering to possess one. It is its history that fascinates me. Timeless design accompanied with the customised mon monogram service makes it precious and meaningful. Words cannot describe how exhilarated I was when I eventually placed an order. After more than a month of waiting (which was supposedly to be 2 months, but it arrived earlier, so yay for that), this bae's finally here. I can finally see it in actuality. It's so gorgeous and one-of-a-kind, simply incomparable. My first ever personalised mon monogram by Louis Vuitton.

Three Stripes

This is me blogging, 2 weeks before my upcoming exams. I know I have to make an announcement on my blog to avoid any possible assumptions, because I'll be disappearing for about 2 months due to AS finals exams. I'm nervous. At the same time,  I'm making one of my life's biggest decisions -- applying for university. Positive vibes must conquer my entire mind, body and soul to assist me in getting through this period (and eternally). 

I've been buying loads of Adidas products due to their recent crazy sale and I love all my purchases. These Adidas slippers/slides/sandals are my current favourite footwear.  Since this outfit was worn last Sunday, I've already posted one of the photos on twitter. To my surprise, I've received quite a number of compliments from my friends and followers regarding how I've matched the sandals with my outfit. I find these sandals can be very edgy depending on how you style them. Birkenstock has similar sandals as well and I'm thinking of getting them. Another of my purchases from Adidas includes this men's tee. I never knew men's tees could be so comfortable to wear. I actually bought two different colours from the same range of tees. 

This outfit was actually from a spontaneous shopping date with Hui Yee. We literally planned it last minute and headed to town by ourselves. Hence, I didn't dress up much. This is basically what I'd wear during a laid-back Sunday. No make up (except for brows) and my Uniqlo jeans - my comfiest state. On the way back from shopping, we found an empty white house which I reckon is a super photogenic place to shoot for any ootd. Using my new investment -- Canon EOS 70D, I took a series of shots which I love so much, all credits to Hui Yee!

Finished my AS trials last Friday and am having a one-week holiday now. Sounds great, yet a bigger challenge is ahead of me - finals are in a month's time. And hey, September's here. It's insane to realize how fast time flies without us noticing. Recently, watched a movie called Lucy, I'm sure most of you guys have heard of this movie. I loved this movie so much that I actually watched it twice in the same day. 

"Time is the only true unit of measure,  it gives proof to the existence of matter; without time, we don't exist." This line inspired me so much. Appreciating every moment and living it. I'm really disgusted by people who idle their days away and still complain that there is not enough time and life is unfair etc.. Now, you know how it is important to mingle around with positive people rather than negative people. 

Let's talking about this outfit. These pants are actually from H&M and they were distressed by me. I saw that the trend of distressed jeans is going viral nowadays and it's funny that the more distressed it is, the more expensive. So I thought why not make one by myself. Though I was really uncertain and doubtful about my skills of cutting cloth, I love the outcome and I'm kind of proud of myself!

PS: It was Malaysia's Independence day yesterday! Here to wish my country, happy Independence day!
