The cardigan and jeans are from Dotti, my favourite haunt, and the shoes are from Volley. comfortable outfit for the recent dreary weather.

The 100 Days Project | Introduction

Yes, It has been FOREVER.

Yes, I have no excuses.

Yes, I apologise, again.

I'm Sorry! I have neglected this space for too long. The combination of a new job, assignments and an abnormal length of procrastination has allowed me to leave this blog unattended for 8 months, but I'm back, and this time I'm gonna have to be consistent for this project that I have decided to take on.

The 100 Days Project is an idea that I had when I was packing my room. Amidst the mess, clothes and makeup, I just realised that I have clothes that I hidden away, makeup I don't remember purchasing and things that I just generally don't need. 

I am going to attempt to dress purely from the closet that I currently have for 100 days. (Mind you, I have a wedding to attend around the 60th day, so I might make an exception for a special occasion) but for the rest of the days, I am going to wear whatever I own. 

In terms of makeup, I've started working in a cosmetics company as a makeup artist/beauty assistant, so I went a little crazy when I first started, but I know I don't need new makeup, so the 100 day ban is going to apply to that too. (Products that I get free doesn't count, heh )

As I have a uniform for work, the 100 days will not be consistent, it will be whenever I'm not in uniform, which is about 3-4 days a week, so hopefully I will be encouraged to update this lovely space and I will try my very best to not repeat outfits, but I will definitely repeat pieces in different outfits.





Wish me luck!

Food-iing | Izakaya Sakura















Having lived in Perth for over 10 years, I have driven past this restaurant time and time again, and for some reason, I always thought it was closed. Having heard that not only are they still open for business, they are also one of the best Japanese Restaurants in town, I had to give it a go for myself.

An izakaya is a type of Japanese drinking establishment that serves food to accompany the drinks. They are casual places for after-work drinking.

I got that off Wikipedia. 

Izakaya Sakura seem to have countless amount of dishes, all squished into a two sided "bigger than A4, smaller than A3" menu, and with that many dishes, I was glad there were five of us, as I wanted to try everything.

Most memorable were: 

  • Mentai Mochi: The gooey mochi and the strong mentaiko was delicious, but a little bit is more than enough.
  • Grilled Squid: We could not stop eating these! addictive!
  • Lotus Root Chips: It's like real chips, but healthier. (At least that's what I tell myself)
  • Hand Rolls: It's like a neverending treasure find with the amount of fish they put inside, at least until you finish the entire roll.
  • Sashimi: A good selection, and amazingly fresh!

I'm sure there are many more dishes that are amazing, but after having the spread we had up there, we couldn't have anymore, so we ordered dessert. (Pretty sure that whole "Another stomach for Dessert" thing is true)

The green tea mochi was creamy and refreshing, and as they were quite generous with the green tea ice cream, we were all satisfied and happy.

Will definitely be back there a few more times with friends and family, with amazing food and impeccable service, its no wonder that bookings are absolutely necessary.

Jibber-iing | Happy 2015

First things first, HAPPY NEW YEAR! albeit a little late...

I have been fairly behind on a number of things; like assignments, wishing everyone happy new year, behind when I was counting down, and last but not least, late on blog posts.

I don't have any excuse, except writers block and I honestly needed the last few months for myself.

So here's to 2015, resolutions are overated, so I'll just say this:

trying my best is not good enough any more, I will do it, I will finish my assignments and get the certificate, I will work harder on blogging (and hopefully vlogging, we'll see how that goes) and I will strive to be a better person as a whole.

What are your resolutions or do you think they're overrated too?

Food-iing | Fitzgerald Seafood Restaurant





On nights where we are completely lazy to cook, Fitzgerald Seafood Restaurant is probably our first pick. (Second being Siena's, foodication coming soon)

This was one of the nights that we decided, no cooking, lets eat out. We frequent this place a few too many times which brings me to dishes that we would normally order. 

The Hot and Sour soup is a must have, this soup makes its name proud. Pig's Stomach is probably my favourite internal organ, not for everyone, but our entire family loves it. Sweet and Sour pork ribs, slightly different to the ones without bones, but delicious all the same. (My favourite is at James St Kitchen, but as they closed down a while ago, (it is now Meet Fresh) we come here for it instead). Finally, their spinach broth with three types of egg is pretty amazing. 

Great for those lazy nights, and with fruits and desserts after the dinner, its a complete package.
