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):

Hello Kitty Bubbly World-Inspired Outfits

Psssst. After taking the world by storm as classic fairytale characters and circus stars in 2013, Hello Kitty is back. And this time, she’s dressed as her friends from Sanrio in conjunction with her 40th anniversary this year.

Dubbed the Bubbly World collection, it sees the world’s most feline making her debut at McDonald’s outlets island wide, not only as other characters like Purin and Maru but – wait for it – shaped as a cute bubble:

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:

Autumn Winter 2013 Collection @ New Look (OMY Blog Club)

Call me crazy, but I’ve never been big on autumn and winter.

It probably has something to do with the (slightly) traumatizing experience of my winter holidays, when I had to trudge through ankle deep snow while freezing in sub zero temperatures. Besides, how many of us actually relish the idea of looking like a penguin who’s trying to impersonate an overstuffed dumpling?

So for the majority of my life, my sunny, tank-top-filled wardrobe and the dark, heavy textiles of the chilly seasons have been pretty much incompatible. That is, until New Look rolled out three new looks (pun unintended!) for its Autumn Winter 2013 Collection.

My 1st Craftholic

I finally caved in and bought my first ever Craftholic last weekend

Working in a nine to five job means that I’m desk bound most of the time, which creates fodder for back aches and the like, especially when I’ve a longstanding tendency to hunch after sitting still for a prolonged length of time.

So why not get one of those cutesy cushions for my seat and, at the same time, brighten up my humble lil space at the office? Enter Craftholics. 😀

Hello Kitty Fairy Tales Plush Toy @ McDonald’s (Valid from 30 May to 3 July 2013)

It doesn’t take much to get a girl’s attention; hang out with your girlfriends and you’ll find that your day has been punctuated with oohs and ahhs at anything and everything that catches their fancy. 😉

The same thing happened to me the other day when I swung by McDonald’s for my fix of French Fries.There it was: the world’s most iconic pair of cat ears, embellished with a little bow, sitting atop the crew’s head as she bustled about dishing up servings of Mc Goodness to the customers before me.

It could only mean one thing: Hello Kitty’s back in town, and this time you can enter the world of the Hello Kitty Fairy Tales!

I’m feeling pretty excited right now, because I’m gonna try something different for today’s post!

I hope you’ll like what I’m about to share here, especially the ladies 😀
