I received my December shipment of my Helene Jewels Arm Party Club subscription earlier this week, which is pretty early for December. I suppose that’s because it’s Christmas soon and the postal service will be super busy around the world. I haven’t sent my Christmas cards yet, so I am already feeling intense guilt that everyone will get their cards late! :(

Helene December-6

Anyway, I was pleased to receive my box and was excited to see what I would get. I ended up getting the Grass Green Victoria bangle. The green is powder-coated brass. It is very solid and the green finish is flawless. There are six small cameos placed evenly around the bangle. […]

‘2 minutes and 40 seconds’ will return in 2015 after its success in 2014. Thank you to everyone who participated this year! The segment will not return on the 1st of January (which is in two weeks), but it is scheduled to return the week after (8th January 2015) and will continue to be posted every second Thursday from then. I am looking for interviewees, so to apply for a possible interview, visit this page.

Sayli blogs at Pensieve and we met online quite a while back. I hosted her blog at some point as well! She’s returned to blogging, and during the time she’s been away has been working on a Bachelor of Engineering.

I’m Sayli, a 21 year old Indian currently in final year Bachelor of Engineering. I love web-designing, cooking and baking. I’m currently preparing for entrance test to study MS in USA :) I also like to read books, play chess and spend time with family and friends.
I’m a very sensitive person and friendly. I can’t tolerate rude and hypocritic people.

I can imagine destroying any kind of obsession is difficult, and in each case, depending on what you could be obsessed with, it is different. I have had recent obsessions with clothes and accessories, in that I buy anything that is remotely cheap, and think, “Wow, I now have loads of things to wear”. The uncool thing is, I’m a serial bargain hunter, so I look for things on sale almost all year round. My habit was particularly awful though, because getting more bang for your buck was something I took literally. If something was on sale, I wouldn’t just buy it — I would buy all associated products and walk out with a giant load from that store.

In essence, my habit of buying cheap things encompassed the following:

  • Buying stuff I don’t need
  • Buying cheap stuff I don’t need
  • Buying cheap stuff in bulk
  • Buying things in bulk
  • Buying things I don’t need in bulk

This post is another entry for Manda’s A Day in the Life linkup. Feel free to view my previous entries.

This is the last A Day in the Life post of the year. Manda has decided that she no longer wishes to host the linkup and has kindly passed it on to me to host. After sorting out a few bits and bobs I should have a page ready for it, and I would love for you to all participate in 2015! It was lovely seeing the number of people who participated this year, and I really want to continue that.

I am writing this for Saturday the 13th December.

I woke up at about 11am, and ate a lot of apple danish for breakfast. I tend to eat less healthy foods on weekend mornings. Sort of like my treat/cheat day. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and tired. After messaging some of my friends on my phone, I put my sleep tracker on and decided to nap. I didn’t intend to nap for that long, but I set my alarm for an hour. I woke a little past 2pm. […]

I actually really hate the colour pink. I am not sure when I began to dislike it, since my first prom/formal ball thing/dance dress was completely pink. I didn’t pick it out though, so I suppose it doesn’t matter. Pink is Lilian’s favourite colour but I have never really liked it. I had always liked blue.


I steer clear of pink clothing because I don’t think it looks good on me, or I just don’t feel good wearing it. Whether it’s hot pink or light pink, I just think it’s yucky. I owned light pink lipstick once and I thought it looked horrid on me. However, for this Fashion Friday I decided to wear pink accessories to match my light pink top. […]
