Monthly Faves (Jan2010)


Hello Monday, we meet again... >:(

Oh, but happy first day of February too!! 

Since its the first day of a new month, I had this idea of sharing a few random things that brought me a bit of joy in January.  In other words, throughout the past month of January, I was flaunting the following.. 

PASHMINA SCARVES not only kept me warm against the cold Vancouver winds, but they also added colour, texture, & glamour to my otherwise simple outfits.

Sorry black leather, I have dumped you for my 
COGNAC LEATHER BOOTS
Since my wardrobe is stocked full of black & grey coloured clothes, I relied on my cognac leather boots to provide colour contrast to my dark outfits, all month long. 
They scream classy, cool, & casual.
~

As I have written before, my Asian hair rebels against every 
volume-inducing hair product on the market.
Fortunately, I have found a way to fake it.
CURLS, CURLS, CURLS
The curls give the allusion of of pumped-up voluminous hair fast & without the use of many products. 
(I use heat protectant & curling iron)
~

So Impractical, obnoxious, and ridiculous, yet they were my favourite of favourites. I usually like to wear gloves that have separate openings for my fingers & thumbs. However, though these SOCK MONKEY MITTENS restricted my fingers, I always had them on, and they were always keeping my fingers warm. How could anyone say no to two buttoned-eyed sock monkeys?

This February will be busy. Here are a few events I'm looking forward to in February:
  1. Lunar New Year
  2. 2nd year anniversary with my BF 
  3. Valentines Day 
  4. Olympics in Vancouver [ meh:/ ]

Wishing you a happy Monday, & a Fantastic February!

I love Feb for the same reasons (expect the anniversary part - congrats to you two)! Curly hair is one of my all-time faves ... I know what you mean about asian hair rebelling against it. I'm still trying to figure out how to get the perfect curl and make it hold for more than 1 hour!

Hahaha, the sock monkey mittens are sooooo freakin' cute!! I love your cognac boots!! I think black boots are kinda overplayed, but it's always nice to spice things up with something of a different color for an outfit. Gotta stand out from the other girls, right? ;)

I'm SOOOOOO EXCITED FOR Tet, as well (is that how you say it? Tet?) Although I'm far too old to get those "li xi" (sp?) red envelopes anymore, it's always nice just to see the little ones all happy in getting them. Congrats on your 2-year anni with your bf! =)
