H&M : Achievement Unlocked!

CEEEELEBRATE GOOD TIMES!! COME ON!!

*crowd goes wild*

Before you congratulate me on winning any contests whatevernots, I didn’t :D

Nor is this the sort of “spent-more-than-rm1000-on-a-single-receipt level of achievement either.

Today I went to H&M to look for pants and you know what? They have my size!! And I don’t mean in the children’s department!! *thrilledbeyondallreason*

Previously, whenever I went to H&M, my browsing and purchases would be limited to the kids section. Luckily their teen clothing selection is just as stylish. However, bringing a set of clothes sized 12-13 years to the fitting room kinda makes you feel… meh… on the inside. Once in a while, I’d wander over to the ladies section but even the smallest size would be a tad too big.

However, today!! Ahh..today glorious today!! I passed by the pants on the rack and thought… hmm.. let’s give it a go. And voila! IT FITS! You have no idea how happy I was!! Like..this rarely happens!! MAK SERONOK NYAH!! Hahahhaha!!

So I got myself pants (plural please, they were on discount :P) and went around the other aisles and EGADS! What’s this?! Dresses come in my size too!! #addtocart

So what does this mean? Have I grown (sideways)? Doubtful. Has H&M shrunk their sizing to suit the more petite Asians? Are their cuttings different from before? Oh heck, I honestly couldn’t be bothered! *happy*happy*happy*

Hahhahahaha :D

Nothing beats retail therapy!

 

This… is…

SPARTAAAAAA!!! *screams in all macho glory with spittle flying everywhere*

Ok, ok now let’s try that line again but this time…

THIS. IS. DOODLE!!!! *skips about and throws confetti all around*

Hahhahahah, ok not much of the spittle effect (thank God) but maaannnn it feels good to be back!

HelloooOOOooOoo!! Boy do I have a kabillion stories to share with all of you. Where do i start, wheeere do i start…

OK, from the top!

WORK
I’ve resigned from my full-time-oh-so-comfortable-been-there-for-almost-a-decade job.
Yes, I did it. I’ve been wanting to do it for quite a while. Unfortunately, back then, I didn’t have the guts to take the plunge. I kept mulling over the idea, throwing what-ifs and what-nots… and then, a friend resigned from her job. We share a similar passion, all things kids and parties. She took the brave step, and seeing that, I felt inspired (and in awe mostly). I mean, berani weiii!! So i thought to myself…why not, right? Rezeki itu, Allah yang tentukan.

I came home from work tired, weary and out of sorts one day, and asked my other half… can aa? should i? what do you think? can i?
He said YES!
Needless to say I submitted my resignation letter the next morning *grin*

And you know what? It’s one of the best decisions of my life, ever!

So now here I am. A full-time WAHM. It’s my dream come true!! It’s what I’ve always ALWAYS wanted.

Party Fluff is now not just a passionate hobby, it also pays the bills hahaaha! Hence you can imagine I’m working on party stuff with more heart and soul. Ooh, and I also have my very own working studio now! I’ll share more on my little studio in another post :)

Meanwhile, do check out Party Fluff’s official website (buat sendiri k, so please do let me know if you spot any errors). We have party packages available, a gallery of previous parties and more!

 Apart from Party Fluff, I’ve also ventured into a new career adventure (because life gets dull without new challenges, hahahaha)! I’m now proudly a COWAY Health Planner!! Yeaaappp, you read that right! Apart from doing parties, I do water and air purifiers :D :D :D

I know i know, it’s like two completely different ends of job categories but you know what it has in common? I get to meet people :) Yup. I get to meet old friends and make lots and lots of new friends! As cliché as it may sound, I actually really do enjoy meeting new people. Perhaps one day, I’d get a chance to meet you too :D

Oh, in case you’re wondering what in the world is COWAY, you can check out my official COWAY site. Will write more on my COWAY adventures later on!

FAMILY
Chempedak and Pomelo are no longer babies *cries*

I just can’t get over the fact that Chemps will be going to Standard One next year. She has to go to big kid school. Where life starts to get unfair. Sigh. Camana dia nak gi beli food kat canteen? Can she even reach the counter? Nanti orang tolak-tolak, dia tak dapat beli food pastu dah habis time rehat! *mommy nanges berjurai*

Pomelo is now a cheeky little 2-year-old who just loooooves football and is fond of playing tricks on people. Yes, he does that. Among his favourite antiques is he’d pretend he hurt his foot, going OUCH OUCH OUCH and even walks with a limp towards you. The moment you come over expressing concern, he giggles and runs away like nothing happened. SABAR JE LAH.

The husband has just finished his final exam and is now in the process of doing up his thesis. *smiles proudly*
PhD is no joke. I get stressed just looking at him study! Rajin gila nak ambik exam lagi semua. I’m waayyy over all that hahahhaha! Even if you offer me a scholarship to sambung study pun I’d say thanks, but no thanks! :D

Oh! And we now have a new addition to the little family. No, no, I didn’t get pregnant and give birth while i was away from the blogging world. (If only it was that quick and easy! hahaha!)

Everyone, meet Bunny Jr.! Chempedak’s pet rabbit!

Cute kaaaaannnn!! She’s so fluffy and adorable!! (biased statement di sini)
She doesn’t like to be carried around much but loves to come over for loving rubs and would snuggle up next to you if you’re sitting on the floor.

Why is she called Bunny Jr.? Well, Chemps named her pet and according to her “Sekarang dia small lagi, so nama dia Bunny Jr. Nanti bila dah big, jadi Bunny je lah.”

Chemps just loves her to bits! So does Pomelo but unfortunately he love to SHOW his love by grabbing Bunny for major hugs and squueeeeezes. Kesian si Bunny. Hence no pics of Pomelo with Bunny, because most of the time they’re together, we’re screaming “IHSAN NO!! KESIAN BUNNY!!”

ALL OTHER STUFF
What else what else… well I guess most of my updates revolve around work and my family. To detail everything out in one post would be close to impossible, hahaha! To be honest, I’m actually a lot busier now than I was before! I send and pick up the kids from school, attend to them after school, and try to grab the free hours doing Party Fluff and COWAY work. It’s not easy, and I have to schedule my days properly to ensure that I meet my customers’ orders in time, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything else. As hectic as my days are, I get more time with the kids, the husband, and I’m doing what I love most :)

It’s nice to see you again Doodlers :) I’ve missed writing in this silly ol’ thing and hearing your wonderful comments.

Till the next post!

Much love,
-me-

Bagging some women bags

Hellooooo my Doodlers!! OH MY GOD IT’S BEEN AEONS!! I missed you all so muuuuchh!!

I’m just drowning in work, I think sometimes I forget what it’s like out there in the fun fun world where people are actually living their lives.

Anyway, I need a breather. So, I’m gonna write about something that makes me happy. My chill pills. My BAGS! Bwahahahah… hey, don’t judge, I know you love your bags too. Heck, they’re pretty much our best friends, the way they go eeeeverywhere we go. Not to mention us wanting (borderline needing) them to match our various outfits.

To be honest, I don’t have that many bags. I’m not kidding! Look look.

my stashSee? These are all the bags I have… at least… I think so. * ignoring the bags left at mom’s place *

If you’re a guy reading this post and wondering why in seven heavens do women need to have handbags compared to men well it is simply because we have tons of items that are highly important to us. Things like our such as our huge-yet-extremely-crucial-to-be-this-size purses, make up, car keys, cell phones, sunglasses, phone charger, tissues, breath mints and and if you’re a mom add on diapers, change of clothes for emergency cases, water bottles and a whole lot more. We always keep ourselves prepared in any situation and stuffing all the items in a bag is what we do best.

To me, there are 3 types of women bags that are definitely seen as a staple in my fashion closet. The first bag is the shoulder bag. Sold out there in the market with many unique designs for you to choose from you’ll end up thinking you might as well just get them all! Hahahah! You can opt for a longer strap for a comfortable day out or choose an elegant handbag to portray your inner femininity. Besides that, the shoulder bag is the most versatile type of bag for women to style according to various settings such as at the workplace, dinner events, a casual day out or even while doing errands.

My favourite slings, can’t live without ‘em!

Perfect for any casual day out

The second type of must-have bag for me is the tote. Designed to satisfy your stylish craves while satisfying your need to fill huge items (or a kabillion mini items) into your bags. I know some women prefer to fit their change of clothes (gym buffs mostly), notebooks, files and even laptop in their tote bag without having to worry having a bulging handbag. The tote bags are seen to be a woman’s substitute sleepover luggage bag where they can carry it all around town with confidence.

Structured and strong, can be filled to the brim!

Last but not least, every woman needs clutch bags. Clutches are the perfect handbag for when you would want a simple yet trendy looking type of purse to carry along. Sometimes, there are days where you just want to carry your mobile phones and wallet on a day out in town.  When it’s time to get all sophisticated at dinner parties, the glitter designed and embellished clutch bags are the perfect choice. If glitters and shine are not your cup of tea, you could always opt for a plain coloured clutch to match with your outfit for a relaxed appearance.

So now if you suddenly have an itch to treat yourself to a new arm candy, those three types of bags up there are easily found in an amazing range of colours and designs on ZALORA. Do check them out, as they’ve got bags online from local and international brands too!

Shopping has never been easier. *grin*
