All Striped Out

SONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCI have always loved stripes although if you check my closet, you wouldn’t have guessed it. So, I was quite happy to find this top on sale from Portmans & was able to wear it this Saturday past. The boxy non-constricting style, as well as the nautical colours gave it a vibe synonymous to the beach & resort- it was perfect for the rare hot weather like yesterday. I paired it with my white Saboskirt shorts, Varinas & also this chunky necklace I bought yonks ago from Mossman. Have a great weekend guys!

Langkawi

I’ve been to Langkawi before but never with the girls. The last time I went, I stayed here in Tanjung Rhu & blogged about it a little here right after our Japan trip. Because the resort was so amazing, G & I never ventured out to the main area of the island until our last day, so exploring it with the girls once again was a treat. Of course, most time was also spent by the pool/beach tanning. Our main goals for this vacation were simple: close proximity to the beach in a quiet, secluded place. We enjoyed every minute of it. Our days were blissfully unscheduled and relaxing – here’s a little glimpse of what they looked like.

Back

Back from my one week Hens trip over at Langkawi Island & I’m super well 🙂

Thank you so so much to my bridesmaids- Mimi, Tammi, JJ, Sandra, Michelle & Delinda for making this bachelorette trip so unforgettable. It’s been a while since I spent a weekend with just my girlfriends – hanging out by the beach & pool, laughing, enjoying the sun whilst drinking, gossiping, playing funny games & eating our body weight in Malaysian street delights (more often that I’d like to admit)

A very special thanks to Mimi my Matron of Honour & more importantly, my BIG sister, for taking the time to organise this trip with the girls & finding one of the most surreal places to stay- Vivanta Rebak Island Resort by Taj. You have done so much for me all these years & always looked out for me- a big sister where I can find solace & mend a broken heart, a friend to cheer me up, a protector & a motherly figure when I needed Mom. Thank you so much… I love you so so much & this trip would not have been possible without your awesome organisational & persuasion skills & of course you. You made the awesome choice of Langkawi too! A very special place to me 🙂 Now it’s even more special because of this trip~

Tammi, my bridesmaid, also my sis-in-law, for staying the rest of the week with me over at the Sheraton resort. Super impressed that you tried that dirty street food with me more than once (especially the ice cubes!) Going to miss our HBO late nights in our cosy beds without the boys, wining & dining in the evenings by the pool/seaside, our swimming ‘lessons’ & tanning time!

JJ, my bridesmaid, my J-Boog– thank you for coming on this trip despite commitments to your business (Natural Wellness)Things have been stressful for you & taken a toll on your health, but even so, you soldiered on & always pull out that sexy priceless smile…I am so proud of you my girl & glad that I can in some ways, also make you smile & take the pain away, even for a bit while you were on this trip (try to push Michelle into the pool again?)

Sandra, my bridesmaid & my #Bokaybitch, thank you for being there. You made such a big commitment recently & I’m so grateful you made it to this trip despite your busy schedule with work. Thanks for being there all the time when I need to vent about anything & everything, anytime of the day. You know me inside & out (waxing details too?) & I could not go through this wedding without you by my side 🙂 (hold my hand ok?)

Michelle, my bridesmaid, my dragon lady, my No.1 bitch. I LERR YOU LAH! You made this trip super fun larrr & I think it’s safe to say, everyone agrees. Without you, there will be less laughter (& bitchiness, sunglasses OFF) & we would not have known Mr Loo (summer romance) You are one of a kind & I am so lucky & blessed to know your unique soul & have you as a friend. ❤ Have you thought, maybe the ‘feistiness’ came from your bitchy relative we met on the boat? Ok don’t kill me.

Delinda, my bridesmaid & my kid sister-always (no matter what your size is or how tall you are now) Love you so much kiddo & super grateful you came on to this trip. For an 18 year old, you are super level headed & have a kind heart. I am in love with your mind (partly thanks to my influence of course haha) Thanks for being so patient with me & being my squire like, all the time (you are my Podrick) I really hope Michelle didn’t damage & pervert your mind too much? (Nipple flash!)

Thank you for taking some time out of your life & loved ones, to spend it with ME hehe, moreover, a trip overseas as well which is a big commitment to make. Thank you for surprising me & making me laugh so much that my insides hurt.

I will remember this trip for the rest of my life & re-tell it in stories to my children one day 🙂

SUMMER ‘SONG’ (of Style)-SPIRATION

I don’t think I can ever say this enough – I love her! 🙂Aimee is my ultimate girl crush- & I can’t begin to imagine what the guys must think of her!

What is there not to love- great looks, great style, great TAN, great LEGS…most importantly, awesome-down-to-earth personality! & you can really feel that from her photos/videos too! I think, she’s the type of person, if you met in the streets, she will be nice enough to have a little chit-chat with you! 🙂

Love, love, love her style! I am always inspired by her choice of bold colors & outfit choices, as well as her sister- Dani’s style for a more edgy, rebellious look 🙂

Anyway.. summer is around the corner for us Aussies.. so here are some of her styles that inspired me..
