It's Been Forever

Wow. I haven't written in this little piece of internet space in like... forever. I just had the urge to write something, pen something down. I'm not even sure what will come of this. Perhaps, a few months (or years?!) down the road, I will look back at my posts and wonder what I was thinking. 

I haven't anything original to post, no new looks or photos. I know this is a little ridiculous but it HAS been a good whole year (and maybe 3 months). Nothing much has changed except I'm hoping to move into my own little pad by the middle of the year so I'm finding and pinning dream homes and dream rooms. 

Also, can I just say that I'm so uninspired lately. I don't feel like wearing anything special (except Singapore's uniform of a trusty pair of denim shorts and a grey tee). I really ought to dress up a little more. I did go for a couple of friend's weddings back in December (last year - 2013) so that did bring some of my dresses out of the dark but other than that, it's been my company's grey polo tee and jeans during the weekdays and the denim shorts and grey tee combo during the weekends. Someone, please kick start my fashion engine again. Send me links or pictures that inspire!

Signing off now (and hoping that I will be back with better posts soon). Better late than never you know! 

Leaving you with kisses x x and a few pictures of inspiration for the home. Have a lovely weekend! 


What Love is All About


Picked this up and thought it was lovely. So I'd shared it with you. I'm so loved up right now but the reason for that, -another time then. ♥

Original post here.

Love shouldn’t feel circumstantial. It shouldn’t feel as if I love you more than you love me or vice versa. There shouldn’t be conditions, levels or lesser degrees of love. If there are then whatever you’re feeling is something else. Maybe lust, maybe like, maybe comfort – but certainly not love. The effort shouldn’t be one-sided; all of the little things can’t come from one contributor; and if you hurt, your companion should as well.
Love shouldn’t make someone feel like a bother. We shouldn’t be able to empathize with a pesky gnat at a picnic, being shooed away. Love shouldn’t be treated like hard labor, and it shouldn’t feel like it either. It shouldn’t make us sad more often than happy, or lead to bad times outweighing the good.
Love shouldn’t consist of waiting around to hear from the person you care infinitely about. That’s the worst. Sitting by your phone, waiting on pins and needles for something – anything from them. The phone might vibrate, but it’s beyond disappointing when it turns out to be a text from somebody else. It aches your heart to know that they’re somewhere out there, completely unfazed by your absence. We can convince ourselves that the subpar phone service failed to deliver our lover’s text, or prevented their call – but we know the chances of that are slim. And sure, we could just contact them, but when you initiate conversations regularly, it’d be nice to have that attention reciprocated. Love shouldn’t feel like being wide-awake until 3am; wishing, hoping, praying for a measly phone call from the one you adore.
Love shouldn’t keep notes on every blunder ever made. When a mistake occurs, retaliation should never be a thought. The pain felt by your companion’s mistake shouldn’t make you want to get even. If you know how much it hurt you, why would you want the one you love to experience that same agony? Those feelings are poisonous. A desire to exact revenge or document every error is a surefire sign that you’re involved in something other than love. Instead you’ve got yourself a contaminated, breakable link that the Grim Reaper of Love is ominously stalking – preparing for its imminent death.
Love shouldn’t feel like uncertainty. It shouldn’t feel like a battle. It shouldn’t feel like a tug of war, with two people trying to make the other “love” them more. Maybe you’ve mistaken your physical infatuation, or crush at a time of vulnerability for love. Those things are flimsy. Those feelings are fragile. The first storm will either demolish those relationships, or leave enough water damage to rust and wither them away.
Love shouldn’t feel hopeless, because it’s never is. In love, a pair can be down, but never knocked out. Love should make all things possible, even if they aren’t necessarily looking good today.  If I love you and you love me,we will prevail – but if we don’t, we won’t. Love shouldn’t feel like we won’t. 

Little Miss Trouble



Nothing is ever as amazing as God and His Grace and His amazing timing. I met up with Janie yesterday and it was lovely having fellowship with her and blurting/ranting out things that have been weighing in my heart (and still are). But the second I got home and did my quiet time, this verse jumped out at me.

John 14:1

'Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me (Jesus).'

Elements


Is it just me or is Lindsey Stomp simply amazing. I love this video (and the rest of her videos as well!)

Suddenly this is THE soundtrack to listen to while churning out email replies at this unearthly hour. ♥


Graduation 2012


And while I'm at it (that is, updating this little space in the world-wide-web), I thought I'd go ahead and upload some much-delayed graduation photos:

 Proud Mom and Dad? Err....









My Amazing Sisters. ♥






 Many kisses! ♥
