Cobwebs Away, It’s 2017!

I think I’m starting to dislike myself for not updating this blog at all. I have multiple drafts but nothing finalized hahaha. Seriously…this habit needs to go, especially since I’ve been meaning to polish my writing skills. Not that writing these posts will help me much, but at least I’ll get the ball rolling and continue writing all the same.

Sometimes, I wonder if I should practice writing by hand instead (would you believe it, I had to google up what’s the right phrase for that…I almost typed ‘via hand’; my goodness! I really need to buck up on my English) because my handwriting is atrocious due to lack of practice. More than half the time I’d end up squinting at my own doodles because I couldn’t make head nor tail of what I had written down during meetings at work! Tsk tsk

I’m horrible with New Year Resolutions, so I think I won’t create any crazy ones this year. It’s not like I’d follow them anyway so what’s the point? Instead, I’ll keep it simple. My resolve for this blog for this year is to write at least two posts per month. It doesn’t need to be a long-ass post, nor does it need any photos unless I really want it to have photos. I think that’s my biggest stumbling block when it comes to writing down postings – finding the right photos for the post. Which is rather ironic considering I aimed to write more and not upload photos.

Looks like it is time for me to draft out some random topics for me to write about, be it for fiction or life musings. Event updates and product reviews are excluded from this; these types of postings will come as and when it does anyway!

So, if you could challenge me to write something about myself, what would that topic be on?

Affordable. Fashionable. Hooked.

Being a thrifty shopaholic, I’m always on the lookout for great deals, bargain buys, and ‘worth it’ apparels. And trust me, nothing says awesome more than Hook Clothing.

For those who have been around long enough to recall the days of ‘blogshops’ this online boutique may sound familiar to you as “Tanks For 5” instead. Yep, they have rebranded themselves as they are now catering for more than just RM5 tank tops.

I once wrote about the top five shopping sites to look out for based on my own personal experience and review and guess what? I’m still raving about them now!

Fashion, Indie, Lifestyle. An Online Blog Shop called Hook Clothing

I had tons of fun buying from the website, and their services are quite efficient as well!
My last purchase with them was during the infamous Black Friday sales. Or, as they put it, Black FriYAY sales 😀 items were going off super cheap, and they even threw in a couple of freebies for those who managed to grab them off the website. I did snag a few myself; wasn’t too keen on snagging ALL cause well, I’m just not that mean hahahahaha.

I was amazed that delivery was quite speedy, considering that sales day tend to be over-clogged with hoards of women attempting to buy the whole shop down! But I got my package in less than a week. Kudos to the folks at Hook Clothing! 😀

The staff were exceptionally sweet on this. I had 22 items in my shopping cart (crazy, I know) and apparently it couldn’t fit their packaging paper well. So it was all folded up in one huge bag and then stuffed into the delivery pack.

Personally, I have no issues with it. As long as my items arrive safe and sounds it’s all good to me! But thanks for the sweet note all the same 🙂

One thing I’d like to highlight here is that most apparels at Hook Clothing cater for the Small to Medium-Small body sizes. It breaks my heart to say this but most of their tops couldn’t fit me well at the moment. I’m taking it as a challenge to work out and slim down but until then..*sobs*

Can’t say that I cannot completely fit into them, cause I can. But my unsightly blobs will be jutting out hahahahaha. So I’d rather not.

That said, loose flowing tops and their racerback tops are still fine! I have lost track on the amount of tank tops I have bought from them over the past few years (I love these tops) and they’re still pretty awesome! If you’re not sure whether the tank top suits you, just drop them a message seeking for fashion advice. I’m sure they’re willing to help out however they can 🙂

My personal advise would be to check carefully what fabric is being used for the tank top. My favourite are stretchy cotton and ribbed cotton so far!

Here’s one of the tops I had bought over the crazy Sale Day: High Neck Draped Back Tee.

Sadly, it’s no longer available. A pity, I would’ve loved to purchase more of this. It’s certainly a really nice loose flowy soft cotton top to wear over a hot sunny day!

Here’s me attempting to pose with the top (unglam shot cause I wasn’t able to wear makeup then due to a minor skin recovery on my face)

My back felt so breezy! Hahahahaha 😛 It is still a modest top, and I would suggest pairing this up with a caged bralette or a sports bra to avoid showing off your bra hooks (unless you want to that is!) to the whole wide world when the wind blows your way. But honestly though, best buy yet!

I have tried on other tops too, like for example the Chiffon Backwing Top that I wore during the Kancil Awards night. Paired it with a pair of black palazzo pants and heeled pumps; I’m all set for the night! 😀

Hello random #OOTD selfie from the typical ladies room \o/ image is pretty crap but you get the #OOTD idea hahahaha 😛

Now for the awesome possum part. If you haven’t bought anything from Hook Clothing yet, you are entitled to a 10% off from your purchase now! No strings attached 😀

Simply key in this code: silvennia before you Check Out to redeem this lovely discount.

Bear in mind, though, that this only applies to first time users. So if you are in throes of despair because you had forgotten to buy extra tank tops in your previous purchase, it is time to hunt down ‘first timers’ to be the buyer!


What are you waiting for? Happy Shopping y’all!

#QUOTES : Live Love Enjoy

There is always that one quote or multiple quotes that would trigger the determination and positive emotions in you. Whether it is to boost morale at work, strengthen your self-esteem or even some random quotes to amuse yourself for the day…quotes are great.
I have my fair share of quotes that I’d like to live by if possible, and these two are but a few of the many that I have. What’s your special quote, and why? 😉

no one can make you feel inferior without your consent

Let’s face it. We all had our painful moments (or at least, I do!) where we would feel small, insignificant and diminished in the presence of others. Whether the action was intentional or otherwise, it still hurts.

Try instead to look at things differently.See it in a different perspective; yes, perhaps even with rose-coloured glasses. Still hurts? Smile and vent your emotions in a positive manner (take up writing, dancing, drawing…anything that can help you ease the frustration before it becomes dangerously explosive).

Me, I prefer gaming. Whether violent games (lol) or cognitive games like Hidden Object Games (HOG) I often find solace in this digital space. The sad corner where a single player can have fun 😛

gaming inspirational quote

Again, I love to game. Not a full time hardcore serious gamer, but sufficient enough to find happiness in the little achievements in life.

  • Got a new office chair? Brilliant! +5 concentration
  • Bought a little cactus for your workplace? +2 concentration +10 HP +5 happiness
  • Too much work? – 20 HP -5 stamina

^ so if that happens, how would you deal with it? 😉
