*Eeeeek!* ; the sound one makes when he/she is unable to contain the excitement from extreme cuteness. Haha. Okay so my 'coolness' level just dropped to the lowest level. But I can't help it. I am in love with these bunnies to death!! They have been making me smile and giggle since this morning when I started drawing them. This post is especially for you girls (and guys who appreciate kawaii things) out there who had a bad day.. Who is going through rough times.. And for those especially who hasn't been able to smile much lately. I want to introduce you all my imaginary bunny friends, Loop and Giggles. (Oh my gosh I just made that up, but I like the names already!) Giggles should be the shorter one (because he makes me giggle) and Loop is the one with the bow tie. I honestly don't know how I came up with this idea to draw characters and add them to my weekly outfit post. But I did! And I thank God for giving me the imagination to do so. 

Also, I want to thank Covetz for this super cute mint top! It gives me the vibe of a clown (in the cutest way imaginable excuse you! :p) because of the collar which is seen very often on clowns. I love the colour especially. Yup, I am still in love with mint hues. :) 

Psalms 34:5
Those who go to him for help are happy, and they are never disgraced.

I found these photos lying around iPhoto, untouched and edited. So I edited them and now giving them a place to call home. Haha. I believe I took them for a reason so they kind of deserve special treatment. (I talk about my photos as if they were people, weird). 

Just random objects/things that has been part of my life this month. Description; the view from my window, breakfast, a sketch I'm still working on, lunch, rain marks on my roof. 

Psalms 35: 28
I will tell of your goodness and will praise You everyday.

Thank goodness it's friday! Well, at least to me it feels like a friday. My college schedule for this semester is all topsy turvy and my actual Fridays no longer feel like, well, a Friday. That's cause I have classes on Saturday. Lame! And now Wednesdays and Thursdays are kinda like my 'weekend'. So, yay for now! Because I get to sleep in tomorrow :) I am currently laying in bed, snuggled up in my pjs, having chocolate and a glass of cold milk, preparing myself to watch Flipped, a movie I recently just downloaded! Has anyone watched it? Ahh, I savor these kind of days. Especially after having a long week busy with work. It's nice to push all of that aside and enjoy the simple things in life. 

As for this outfit, I honestly had a pretty hard time matching a top with these Su-Estilo lilac pants! (yes, they are pants). However, I recently got this floral top from PhatCulture; a treat from them for modeling for their online store. Just good timing, I must say! I think the florals compliment the purple hues well. Also! I can't get enough of my new CuteGrannyVintage bag! It's an addiction. x 

Psalm 105:4
Look to the Lord and His strength, seek His face always.

I couldn't wait to use the straw bag from Cute Granny Vintage so I brought it along with me to church this morning! The weather was quite terrible today. In terms of the scorching sun melting me away into a puddle of sweat (I exaggerate too much). But the blazing sunlight definitely made the photos look extra pretty, no? I mean, look at the grass! Its shiny and reflecting so much light. I really like the effect! Anyway, I am going to get ready for bed now. I have a long day tomorrow at school. I hope you all had a lovely Sunday! Would love to hear if you did something exciting! Or anything at all :)

Psalm 37:4
Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.

Something that I have been meaning to share here! But as usual, have been too busy juggling everything else that life has to offer. I am thankful I finally found some spare time! Lets cut to the chase shall we? :) Quite recently Destiny, owner of Cute Granny Vintage approached me and asked if I would like to collab! It was a definite yes from my side. I am an all time vintage lover ( even though if it doesn't show as much ), but I really love old timeless things! So, I was insanely happy when I got her email. I got this sweet rattan bag as my first item. I am so in love with it! Really.. It's quite the perfect rattan bag ever. Donned with lace all over! Just to sweeten it up even more! Sigh, I can't wait to use it. Thank you so much Cute Granny Vintage!  

Putting clothes and sponsorships aside, Destiny is one of a kind. She's one the most nicest little lady I have came in contact with. She's really so genuine and lovely. When we chat via email, her personality really shows and I can connect with her. She's super understanding; especially when she knows I'm busy with work, she'll send me encouraging emails that always make my day. I'm so glad God brought her in my life. Yes, collaborating with CGV is great, really. But to know someone like that and to be friends with her, means so much more to me. 

Luke 6:31
Do to others as you would have them do to you.

It's pretty late now. Past my bedtime and I'm so sleepy! But I feel the urge to write this before I forget
and lose the words that are floating about in my head wanting to escape. (Where do I even start...) Okay, I'll start with, "thank you!". Yes. That is the main reason why I am even blogging now. To those who actually took the time to read and comment on the previous post; wow. Just wow. I honestly never thought people would even bother reading such a long post full of text! I am so touched by every one of your comments, girls. It's quite comforting to know that I'm not the only one who felt that way about blogging. And it opened my eyes to see how blogging affected us all in a similar way. What I'm truly touched about is your motivating and encouraging words. I thought I felt better after releasing my thoughts there. But boy. I feel so so so much better after reading your comments! I don't know how to thank you girls enough. For being here for me. 

ps; My blogging mood has switched back on (thanks to you girls) and I'm so excited to show you what's behind all that fuzziness in the picture above. I'm currently very busy with school work and other stuff that life brings. So the next post might take awhile! But soon I promise :) Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.

This is the most naked post I've ever done. I just feel so strongly to let it out here. In my own personal space where I can just let out my inner thoughts and feelings. Apologies if you are already feeling bored. This might be the most boring post to some of you who read my blog. A post with no photos to look at; just a lot, a lot of text. Ok so here I go.. I don't know how many bloggers out there feel this, but I'm pretty sure there are a lot of them who feel this way, but never really let it out. But I think its time to write about it and just get it off my mind. So this is how I feel. As a blogger, I strive for 'perfection' in my posts. I am always trying to come up with creative ideas and photos that will 'please' the audiences eyes. I don't know who reads my blog but I do check my statistics and the numbers are growing by the day. People from around the globe and places I don't even know of, visits my blog. The thought of that is quite intimidating actually. Because I am very aware that there are quite a number of people who read my blog, I feel so obliged to make the statistics grow even more. Yes, I admit it. I am.. a people pleaser. Don't get me wrong please! Of course there are times when I just want to create creative posts because I felt inspired in one way or another. But sometimes.. even when I am tired and I have no inspiration (we are human, it happens!) I try to 'force' myself to crack something genius up. And people, that is very, very exhausting. I tend to forget that I am only human. I need my rest. My 'off days'. Sometimes I cry because it is all so overwhelming.. It feels like I'm in a race to finish first. And this race is never ending. And I'm competing with myself. How weird is that! 

So yeah. I just thought I'd share something that has been in my mind for quite a long time now. I still don't know who is reading this and who might stumble upon it. But, it doesn't matter really. I don't want to get caught up with silly blog statistics. I didn't start this blog that way! I started blogging because I wanted to share things that gave me inspiration. And Twist Chic is a personal diary that has been opened to the world. I want to share my gifts and talents that God has blessed me with. I want to share my life lessons that I go through, hopefully I get to touch someone out there who is going through the same problem. I want to inspire people who needs inspiration. I want to create beautiful things when I feel inspired, going at my own pace. I want to live how God wants to see me live this life. I want to make my God famous. And His name is Jesus. 

Taken from the song Albertine by Brooke Fraser, I am holding on to this verse:
Now that I have seen, I am responsible
Faith without deeds is dead.
I am on a stage, a thousand eyes on me
I will tell them, Albertine.

Oh I just love dressing up! Whenever I get the opportunity to play dress up, I try to wear things I don't usually wear. Like socks, long sleeved blouses and anything that is too hot to wear in this country of mine. I don't usually dress like this to college. Not because I don't want to, but cause it's very uncomfortable walking in it under the hot sun in between classes. By the end of the day I get all sticky and tired and gross (haha!). But by getting sponsored clothing, I have no choice but to wear them! And I'm glad that I am obliged actually. It gets me motivated to plan and think of what to wear it with. Keeps my creative juice flowing! I am so grateful that I'm able to play "dress up" at least once a week. Definitely something I look forward to every week.

For this outfit I paired this Su-estilo asymmetrical skirt with a Su-estilo sheer blouse. I was inspired by my younger years when I was still in uniform. I used to wear white crisp collar shirts, navy blue knee-length skirts and shoes with socks to school. I hated it. I used to think it was so horrible looking. Socks with shoes!? Skirts below the knee!? Gross.. Haha. Little did I know I matured and started to fall in love with those things I used to hate. I miss school now. Sigh. 

Proverbs 20:9
Who can say, "I have made my heart pure; I am clean from my sin"?

Absolutely love this dress from Su-estilo. I felt so goddess-like in it. From the pastel colours to the tiny floral patterns to the deep-v cut at the back of the dress; so romantic! It would definitely make every girl look so stunning! I'm also making full use of this floral wrath I made. Thought it would finish the look better. Hey! I just realized, I'm clad in floral from head to toe! Yeah, that's how big of a crazy floral lady I am. Oh and I'm pretty happy how the pictures turned out. Even better than what I expected actually. Thanks dad! 

Jeremiah 29:11-12
  For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.  Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you.

Phew! I made it through the first week of college. And I just realized that I'm very exhausted. I can feel the pressure already. First week and my brain is going cluttered! I just want to cry! Sigh. I don't know if its a 'good' stress, but whatever it is, I have not felt this way in the longest of time. At times like these I just feel so weird and depressed. I know all I can do, is just lift it all to Him. I know I can't rely on my own human strength. I will crumble if I do. Letting God take the wheel is what I am going to do. 

On a much happier note, I just want to say thank you and a happy mummy's day to all the mom's out there! Thank you for being so amazing and wonderful and supportive and motivating and loving and beautiful! Sometimes we take our mom's love for granted. And we don't appreciate what she does for us. Even the simplest things like preparing a meal for the family, driving us here and there, feeling our forehead to see if our fever is subsiding.. We forget to say thank you and we don't acknowledge her loving actions. Lets all remember to give our mummy's some good loving back too, shall we? She deserves the world. 

Loving these pieces from Reverie and Su-estilo! The orange crop top is such a unique piece. What got me hooked on this piece is the back of it; a deep 'U' cut that adds a little bit of sexy! And this ballerina skirt (totally reminds me of Black Swan!) is perfection! It's dark and haunting and lovely and feminine at the same time.
