Okay, this video is not about getting rich quick. It’s about learning a new skill that has been making waves in the world right this second! It’s what runs your blog, your favorite social media app, your go-to websites, and many more things that you honestly can’t live without if you were born in this century.

cheaperthanyouare asked: Hi. I've only seen one picture of you. However, my goodness, you were born to have that cut. (Or possibly any bob?) Well done!


Answer:

Thank you very much! I’m thinking of keeping this haircut now! :)

"There could be something 10 times greater than what you’re doing, but you don’t realize it because you’re fixated on the thing you feel like you should be doing."

Love this blurb from The Great Discontent interview with Merlin Mann.

It’s a good reminder to stay foolish and curious for what comes next. Try new things, experiment, don’t be afraid to step away from what you think you’re supposed to be doing.

Style Inspiration: Mischa Barton for Keds

Wherever she is, I have no idea, but her Keds ads are as classic to me as those shoes. Having a Ked’s moment because I’m saving up to buy me some. :)

New Chop

I’m no extreme self-loather, but I’m perfectly aware of my flaws. And probably the only party of my body I rarely have complaints of is my hair. I’ve worn short hair in the past (like, from 2008-2009, I copied Rihanna’s very popular angled bob during her Good Girl Gone Bad phase), but worn it longer since 2010 so its easier to manage. A lot of people surprisingly loved my new cut, and I think I’m going to maintain it for a while.

Lucky’s September issue marks one year of editor-in-chiefing for me. It’s been an amazing journey, thank you all for your encouragement and inspiration! As the magazine about personal and street style, we couldn’t have done it without you 😘 (at Lucky Magazine)

I looooove Eva Chen. Certainly a woman of style and substance I can look up to. And oh, I will scour Booksale for every single back issue of Lucky she directed as its new EIC. But I’ve been a Lucky mag reader for a while now, so this is pretty much my norm. :)

Back Into Shape

I mega MISSED blogging! It’s been a year since I put up my blog, myremarkabletwenties, and I can honestly say that the past months I’ve been “outie” has been a wonderful joyride of both challenge and bliss. Right now, I’m crazy about Tracy Anderson, Gwyneth Paltrow’s fitness main woman. I’ve gotten hold of her exercise videos, and damn, can this lady whip you into shape or what. After 3 short weeks of doing her workouts (I’m sad to say I could only workout for a max of 3x a week, I leave the house so early for work and come home so late!), my butt is rounder (forgive me for the straightforwardness, hahaha), my arms a bit shapelier, my back a lot stronger and my legs —- MY LEGS! —- look so good in a bandage skirt, a swingy dress and straight leg pants. 

UH - MAY - ZING. I love Tracy soo much that her January 2013 Redbook Interview is posted on my bedroom wall. Love, love, love! 

When I master The Method for beginners, I will def. transition to her advanced modules.

Fitness is a huge deal for me. I love feeling strong: being able to lift and carry heavy purchases and office files is already an achievement for me. And I hate getting sick and having no energy at all. Exercise is among the best ways to stay happy, healthy and engaged. Spoken like Tracy would herself. ;-)
