3 for $13 Haul from Lovisa

I love my rings like I love Pringles; I can’t stop at one. Okay, that wasn’t the best analogy but I needed to fit something in and I was having the hunger pangs (as usual).

Anyway, going back to my favourite accessory: there’s something alluring about how the tiniest details can add so much flair to your outfit. I think my obsession began when I started shopping at flea markets and discovered how you can pair so many cheap accessories for different looks!

So when Lovisa had their 3 for $13 sale, there was no way I could resist. I mean, I’ve always been a fan of their chunky designs and statement pieces, but I honestly don’t believe in spending a bomb on something that’s relatively smaller compared to my other accessories, and is just sitting on my finger all day long. This discount, though, means that selected pieces go for a mere third of their original price; a real steal! 😀

The Simpsons™ LEGO® Minifigure Series

I’ve been obsessed with collecting mini figurines for the longest time. You see, while most girls my age were ooh-ing and aah-ing over the latest Barbie Doll (with curls, curves and all), I spent much of my childhood going after the most minute details in my Hot Wheels and plastic action figures. I was a real tomboy back then and proud of it. 😀 Oh, and did I mention that my favourite TV show of all time was none other than The Simpsons? 😛

So when LEGO announced that they were releasing a new line of mini figurines in conjunction with TV’s longest running animated sitcom, I was undeniably excited. It wasn’t before long before I got my hands on all 16 characters with nothing but sheer feeling of them blind bags (and a little bit of cheating in between):

Dressing up for a Sikh Wedding

Weddings are such exciting affairs; from the elaborate ceremonies to the vibrant displays of tradition and culture, one can say that going to one is indeed an eye opener.

And, of course, there’s the part that thrills the inner fashionista in all of us: dressing up for the Big Day!

When we found out that our gal pal from Junior College was getting married in a traditional Sikh marriage ceremony, we set out to pick our respective outfits. And, mind you, dressing up for a wedding, and a traditional one at that, is a different ball game from, say, simply putting what they call your “Sunday best”.

A part of the marriage ceremony (or Anand Karaj) takes place on temple grounds, specifically the main hall, which means we have to abide by a certain dress code i.e. loose fitting clothes which cover our shoulders and legs, and a scarf to cover our heads.

So here’s what I picked to wear for today’s feature:
