Fashion Valet’s 1st Birthday Bash

Mimpi Murni together with Tie The Knot & Vanilla Floral sprinkled our fairy dust to come up with the decor for Fashion Valet’s 1st Birthday Party held at Publika last week on Wednesday. Being the largest Malaysian fashion online shopping website, when they throw a party, they make sure to throw it in grand way so myself, Sherly of Tie The Knot & Aida of Vanilla Floral put our heads together to work some DIY magic that reflected Fashion Valet’s sense of elegance & fun combined with our love for all things pretty. I hope the guests saw that & that the team of FV loved it. For more pictures do check out the Mimpi Murni FB page (like it while you’re there!) & let me know what you think k?

Vote For Me! Cosmo Malaysia FFF

This is a little late but guess who was nominated to be in this year’s Cosmopolitan Malaysia’s Fun, Fearless & Fabulous finalist? Yup, that smiling mug above is yours (chubby) truly. Thank you Naziehah for your nomination & Anida for being so awesome during the photo shoot! I learned that posing without any props whatsoever has got to be one of the most awkward thing ever & that I AM VERY AWKWARD as pictured above & below! :P

My awkwardness aside, Cosmopolitan Malaysia does this FFF competition annually by compiling 12 inspiring women from all walks of life who embody fun, fearlessness & fabulousity (to borrow a term from Kimora). I feel so very honored to be nominated alongside such impressive women who are at the top of their chosen careers, not to mention a little intimidated! Although being called a “craft activist” is pretty awesome & I loved it when Anida asked me what do I think makes a woman awesome (the ability to love, dream big, create adventures & a great sense of humor of course!). I’m grinning from ear to ear as I type this by the way. Hehehe.

And so my lovelies, if you can spare a minute or two, please vote for me by grabbing a copy of the November issue of Cosmo Malaysia, filling in the form at page 79 then sending it in OR vote via SMS. The instructions are pretty simple (pictured above) but in case you the picture doesn’t pop up, here are the instructions: First, you have to register as a voter via SMS. Type COSMO <space> your IC # <space> your full name (example: COSMO 821215145038 LIZA RAHIM) then send to 32733. Upon confirmation, type COSMO <space> FFF <space> Nominee Code (example: COSMO FFF W04) & send it to 32733. My code is W04 to vote for me. Thank you so much for your kind support!

2012 Calendar Round-Up

This is serious. Every year around this time I go on a calendar hunt. You’d think a calendar is a pretty simple thing to get right? Not for me because I need a calendar that I can proudly hang up in my craft room so it must be handmade, unique & because I’m a sucker for memorabilia, it has to last a lifetime so quality is important. Thanks to Oh So Lovely Paper’'s fantastic 7 (SEVEN!) part calendar round-up, here are some great calendars that I’m lusting after & one of these will be mine pretty soon but I just can’t decide… they’re all so purdy! Care to help me decide?

 The Wild Unknown

Update: I've made up my mind & I'm going to go for the Lisa Rupp calendar. I got one from her last year & loved it so much (in fact, I still love it) that I think I want to start a little tradition. Bad news though... the calendar design I want is currently out of stock till after Christmas, so I'll be stalking Lisa's Etsy page till it's back! Sigh, the things I do for a nice calendar.

Craft Party #4 Pictures

all done too

Thanks to everyone who came & partied with us at Craft Party #4. Nisa, Afzan, Domino, Aini, Irene, Aleena, Cheryl, Cheryne, Sufi, Samantha & a few walk-ins whose names I can’t remember now, I hope you had as much fun as I did & I can’t wait to see you guys rocking your “new” refashioned tshirts! Do send pictures if you have the chance ya?

A shout out to the team of Tongue In Chic for inviting us to take part in Chic POP Street Market & giving us such an awesome space to party at plus all the extra craft goodies for the “buffet”. Gwen & Karen, you guys rock!

If you've noticed the blog has been getting more & more quiet lately. It's mainly because I'm in the midst of working on decorating an event which is happening next week + another side project that's near & dear to my heart. You'll hear more about it when the time comes ;)

In the meantime, enjoy the pictures & have a great weekend ahead!

Ni Hao Shanghai

buildings copy

Wonder why the blog has been so quiet lately? Well, at the last minute my hubby said I could follow him on his conference trip to Shanghai, so what followed was a whirlwind of activities to get ready. Getting my visa sorted, shopping for warm clothing, making sure our cat would be well cared for & finishing outstanding orders all within a short time span. By the time our ride to the airport rolled into the driveway, I was really ready for a holiday!

All in all, I LOVED Shanghai. I’ve been to Beijing & was expecting that same chaotic, overwhelming experience, with lots of difficulty getting around but was pleasantly surprised that Shanghai feels a lot like being in Europe & we had no problems getting cabs & communicating with the locals.

Anyways, this is just going to be a short post as I have lots of work & emails to catch up with plus an event or two to get ready for, but I’ll be back soon with more pictures to share (along with the Chic POP Craft Party pictures). Have a great week my lovelies!
