Millenial

This is officially my 1000th post, you guys! IKR?!?!? I honestly didn't think I'd be blogging for this long.  Thank you to all of you who take the time to read my little musings and comment...you all rock:) 

What better way to celebrate than to feature the Olsen twins again on this blog who have been my fave fashion icons for forever:)

Anchors aweigh!

So....I feel like this winter will never leave us, guys! We just had an ice storm, and it's the middle of April...sigh....Well, one thing that's sure to make a girl feel good is having new stuff in the closet. (Yes...I'm shallow.)

shirt my mom got from Marshall's, H&M pants, Ugg Australia Adirondack boots


And another lovely gift from the hubby...almost scary how much he knows what I like and don't like.
Muji Water Repellant Trench Coat
Love this coat soooooo much. I've been wanting something like this for awhile coz I think it's such a timeless piece, you know?

Anyhoo, I hope you are all having a better weather than us over here!

Second time's the charm.

Do you guys remember this dress I sewed awhile back?

I really didn't like it and never did wear it again, so I decided to turn it into a skirt.
skirt I sewed (self-drafted) worn with leather jacket from Urban Outfitters, Muji shirt and Doc Martens
I re-sewed the four bottom panels and turned it into one that looks a bit like a kilt. I attached a kilt buckle and used a kilt pin which were surprisingly easy to find!

 In progress:
hand-sewing the buckle

The waistband after
I must admit I'm quite happy how this turned out. Definitely will get more wear than the original!

And speaking of second time, I knitted another one of these:)
used the Pussyhat Project pattern

Smile like you mean it

I've mentioned in this post about my obsession with the band. What's a girl to do but buy some band merch, of course...bwahaha!

(purchased from The Killers store)



Let's all enjoy some more of their music, shall we?

New in...in cherry red

Just had my birthday a few days ago, and this is a new addition to my small bag collection...a birthday gift from the hubby:D Thanks, hubby!
Dr.Marten's Large Kiev backpack

I love tote bags, but have really been using backpacks the past few years. It's much easier on the back and very handy for travel. Do you like backpacks?

Two birds with one stone

I'm one of those moms who like matching outfits...not for the kids, mind you, but for me and my daughter...bwahaha!

This is the latest thing I've finished knitting...a sweater to match the jumper I made for my daughter awhile back.

sweater I knitted using Mary E. Jacob's Love Birds pattern, worn with BDG jeans and Vans slip ons



Here's my daughter wearing the jumper I made her using the Love Birds Jumper pattern by Arenda Holladay, who is also my teacher in one of the knitting courses I'm taking. She's awesome.

In progress:


If you knit, I highly recommend joining The Knitting Guild Association. For a small yearly fee (currently $25US), you get access to Cast On Magazine (where these patterns are from), and be able to enrol in courses & certifications (for a reasonable price) such as the Master Hand Knitter program (am slowly plugging along on the last level, you guys), and Swatch to Sweater (learning to design a knitted sweater, which I'm also currently taking). It's such a great non-profit organization!

I am a member but am not sponsored or anything. Just really love knitting and this group. TKGA has really helped me become a better knitter:)

Currently Loving #41

Just a list of stuff I've been loving lately:) As usual, it's all over the place.

1) The Killers
I've always liked the band, but guys, their music has turned into an obsession! I think The Killers might have taken the place of Coldplay in terms of being my #1 fave band.

There's just something so melancholy and tragic and honest in their lyrics.




2) American Gods
 I just recently finished Neil Gaiman's book American Gods so I decided to give the show a try. Oh...em...gee! It's pretty bang on when it comes to the pivotal moments in the book. Not for the faint of heart, but it's a lot tamer than Game Of Thrones. I think I have one or two more episodes left, and can't wait for Season 2. Yay for finding another great series!
Ian McShane was perfect casting for Mr.Wednesday. He's just a superb actor.

3) Pacific Rim: Uprising
My boys, especially the middle child, really wanted to see this so I decided to take everyone. It's just a fun movie, y'all! Different from the first movie but still a good watch. Not the best lines, but love the fight scenes.

 4) Softymo makeup cleansing wipes
I was in a hurry to pick up cleansing wipes when I was in an Asian beauty store, and the clerk suggested this. I ended up loving it. It's great for taking makeup off and it doesn't break me out.

Super easy to make, and yummy to boot...well, to me anyhoo:D

 6) Soak wash
I've always been a Eucalan fan, but I wanted to try the Soak no-rinse soap for my hand knits, and it's also great. Love the Yuzu scent.

What have you been loving lately? Are you The Killers fan?
