The Current Obsessions

Oh TGIF (hip-hip, Hooray!)
I hope everyone has fun and exciting plans for the weekend.
As for me, I hope to take a few hours away from my work to reconnect with my social life and maybe revisit the gym. Aha!

Tonight, I plan to meet with the boyfriend for a yummy meal, followed by AVATAR. I swear, I'm the last person on earth who hasn't watched that movie. Hopefully, it will live up to the hype.

Since its the end of the week, I want to share what I have been obsessing over lately. Now, my obsessions tend to change constantly but...for Today:

JADEAfter I saw pictures of CHANEL models on the runway, rocking this gorgeous hue, I was in love.
Craving this shade of green on accessories, clothing or even nail polish. To me, the green colour of jade is so fresh, and it radiates a peaceful zen.

Why? Simple.
I like almonds, I like dark chocolate, thus, I love dark chocolate covered almonds.
They make a great snack or treat.
If you munch in moderation, there are health benefits too.
Dark chocolate is packed with antioxidants and minerals, while almonds reduce cholesterol.
Good to eat, & good for small amounts, of course.

Move over Lindsay Lohan. Hello Charlotte Casiraghi!
A different group of elites have taken over my addiction to celeb gossip.
Charlotte Casiraghi, daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco, has classic beauty and grace.
Not to mention, she has been named one of the world's best-dressed, by Vogue and Vanity Fair.
All that, and she has royal blood running through her veins.
A perfect modern princess.

No thanks, to Snooki-Style bee hive.
Yes please, to the sex-kitten Brigitte Bardot tease that is unachievable on my flat and stubborn, Asian hair. Mousse, Hairspray, "volume injecting" shampoos & conditioners, you name it, I've tried it.

So, What have you been obsessing over lately?
Have a great weekend.

The jade is so pretty! I'm not sure I can pull that nail polish color off though! Right now, I'm totally into leggings, jeggings, stockings, tights. BUT I'm trying to be frugal so I'll have to deal with looking!

I'm obsessed over red! red lipstick, red heels -classic & sexy!

& I love that color jade, seeing those photos are making me want to purchase a jade colored nail polish!

Speaking of hair, I'm asian so ofcourse I was born with straight black hair... unfortunately Imma dumbass so over the years of bleaching, dying my hair & straightening it it's really damaged & just plain dull & ugly, I'm constantly frustrated over it! lol but yesss volumized hair is the sex!

Great list! I'm definitely loving jade nails at the moment. And thanks for your comment! I always use a hot bean bag, but this time I used the SoftHeat Heating Pad. It helps a bit, but my cramps are so severe that hardly anything helps; but fortunately, I'm passed the horrible stage now :) xx

Rachel Bilson is the absolute cutest! And I so love volumized hair, cos mine is just plain and boring straight. I've tried setting it before and though it did work, it's just too time-consuming!
