How To Video: FIFA World Cup-Inspired Nails

So this is my second video tutorial on nails, FIFA World Cup 2010-inspired nails to be exact. I’ll give myself a pat on the back. Hehe. But then again, I didn’t finish the video because… I had to go. However, I was able to show all the steps – except for the final product! And then, I couldn’t take a picture now because… more on that story later after you’ve watched my how to video first!

I have to rush this one in time for the FIFA World Cup 2010 finals tomorrow – or in other parts of the world, later on! Yes, the FIFA World Cup 2010 is coming to an end with the final match between Netherlands and Spain. Who will win the World Cup this year? Who’s your team? Honestly, Netherlands seem to have the edge but I always go for the underdog. So I’m hoping Spain wins this – even if they beat my fave team Germany. Hehe. Well, let’s get to the nails then…

Opening of Louis Vuitton at Saint Tropez Villa

Saint Tropez is one of the places I would love to go before I die… of course hopefully sooner than later-so I can enjoy the beautiful scenery of Saint-Tropez le vieux port, beaches of Grania and the Cannons of the Citadel. Oh and did I mention that its one hot spot considered as the playground of jetsetters, models, celebrities and millionaires/billionaires? Saint Tropez is the perfect place to go to when we’re experiencing the colder months of the year on our end. Well of course, there’s also one place I’d like to visit when I get there. I would definitely want to see the newly opened one-of-a-kind Louis Vuitton in the area.

One of the latest Louis Vuitton boutiques embodies a quaint little villa in the tropics with a facade that’s so warm, welcoming and has that homey feel to it. Just check out this video of the opening of Louis Vuitton at Saint Tropez Villa. Oh how I would love to have those Louis Vuitton balls and I super want that Saint Tropez Neverfull (with red print) as well!!! Eeeek! Will Bernard Arnault please invite me? Hahaha… in my dreams, I know. 🙂

What I Wore: Fourth of July

Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts. It’s been a busy week (ahem mahjong week – lol). We’ve been out up to 4am almost everyday (and last Sunday 5am) keeping friends company. And then the past few days I’ve been rearranging the house – again – I know! It’s still a couple of months to go but I have already prepared the two guest bedrooms for our future tenants. LOL! Does it show I’m too excited? Can’t wait for my friend and some relatives to get here! So our master bedroom is our bedroom/office at the moment. Thus, my studio will have to be put on hold. In the future, I want a custom built-in on one wall that hides all the computer and stuff – just like those things I see at HGTV. 🙂

Anyhow, I’ll be busy again this week because we’re having friends over from Maryland – where we once lived. In fact, I now have to rush to the grocery to buy some stuff. So just to give you something before I get going, I’m sharing what I wore last Fourth of July – umm… actually Third of July – afternoon ’til night – as we waited for the fireworks at Southlake. It has become our tradition to watch the Fourth of July fireworks at Southlake, Texas. It’s just so fun… I’ll tell you more about it when I get the chance – hopefully soon. For now, let me share with you what I wore.

Nothing biggie – but I chose to wear a Red, White and Blue top in honor of the occasion. And oh, pardon the hair because it was a bit windy. We got a cool breeze in the afternoon after the early afternoon shower. It was the perfect day to go on a picnic and wait for the fireworks because it wasn’t hot unlike the previous year. Anyway, I have to go. Until next post!

On MFJ: Marc by Marc Jacobs top; Tart leggings; Mossimo wedges; Tory Burch Nico tote; Rogan for Target sleeveless hoodie; Amrita Singh bangles; necklace from dear friend Chloe (mwah); Chanel bow drop earrings; Jacques Lemans chrono gold watch.

Red, White & Blue Outfit: Happy 4th Of July

Sorry for the lack of posts recently. I’ve been trying to rest and so I haven’t been spending much time in the computer. I still owe a lot of outfit posts and other fashion-related news. Heck the photos from Fall Fashion Shows in Europe are still sleeping in my computer. I had to scour through four hundred emails so you can just imagine how lazy I’m feeling right now. LOL. And of course, last but not the least, because of what I’ve gone through the past few days. I’m actually used to it because I deal with it every so often. However, out of nowhere… and I totally feel stupid for not remembering about this certain checkup about 3 or 4 years ago… I remembered that my Doctor found something rather unusual and I wasn’t able to follow up until now.

My hormones/blood are still being tested and I’ll get the results by next week. I’m actually hoping the results aren’t great because if they were normal, I have to undergo other series of tests… including a minor surgery if they still couldn’t find the culprit. I’m hoping it won’t be the minor surgery – not that I’m scared or anything but I don’t want it to reach to that point… more time and money will be spent… sigh. But oh well, I just want it to be treated soon… perhaps it’s why I’ve been writing dramatic posts. LOL! Feels like I’m saying goodbye. Haha. No, not yet Lord. Anyway, I won’t say anything specific yet. I will tell you all about it when I find the results. For now, I’m showing off my red, white & blue outfit to celebrate the occasion. 🙂

Happy 4th of July Everyone!

On MFJ: Callanan Hat; Target Aviators; Chanel Earrings; Forever 21 elephant necklace; New York & Co. necklace; Forever 21 red tank; Forever 21 blue white racer back; Forever 21 gray harem pants; Old Navy gold sandals; Goyard St. Louis PM tote; Amrita Singh bangles.

Be back next week for more posts! 🙂
