Work-in-progress, grrr, grrrr, where’re my legs???

 

I have a guideline for buying navette rings, or Revival type styles. Even though the latter is not popular in Singapore, where revival jewellery is seen as old-fashioned, or just “too much” in a day’s work…

Truth be told, my guideline is the Olsen girls. If I cannot imagine the ring on any of Ashley Olsen’s fingers, or the pair of earrings on Mary-Kate’s ears, I cannot find a reason to buy it. I could plaster a dozen photos of the way the sisters wear jewellery here but I refrain (unless you say I should so I don’t appear starstruck). It is embarrassing at my age.

Seeing how fast the social media paradigm is changing our style landscape, perhaps in five or ten years, Singaporean women will realize revival jewellery is not ‘ethnic’ or oldie. They will be able to tell the difference between “too much” and personal style. Or personal style and store-bought style.

A little birdie told us that the shopping paradigm of the future is one of DIY or customizable offerings, and this will be a big wave across both everyday and luxury shopping. The success of Pandora is just the beginning. The brands that last will be the brands that know how to show people how to be personal. We will look at one another and immediately be drawn to the other’s difference (the easiest way I can think to describe this is like when you are in Harajuku), as opposed to convenient labels and… pigeonholes.

Soul is a very lovely thing. It is probably the only thing lovelier than youth. Because all of us (can) have it, and have it for a long time.

Will Aimee Mann’s style ever grow old?

GUP is a photography magazine I like very much. It features interesting new work with a human dimension first and art second if this is possible. I have two subscriptions, Granta and GUP, and one supplementary credit card from HY.

Who else makes it work but us, living in a small, 90% sunless space with a big love for the bigger earth? Not to mention the ambient light these lamps provide – very photogenic and powerful for potheads. Dreammmy.

Consider these if you walk by too many dark areas and want (to grow) a lucky bean.

Stage 1 “Grin” Proliferation begins by installing a plant light, and a handsome one of course.

Because Mother Nature is picky.

I am beginning to think plants are like us beings. If they wear the right outfit they look spiffy.

Sometimes all you have is a light bulb and you want to be a trailblazer.

I collect these great artists and imagine them in my hallway, but I know the best art is light.

Then daylight streams and dreams waltz. Another night.

I know the best art. I know light. Together is many nights, sharpened and broken by stars.

A tunnel of lights is hanging from the balcony.

They call out to passers-by, passengers on buses,
a taxi too fast.

My intention has always been to find a home for you,
now older I know the walls are too.
The home will come for you, you, and you:
each of us mourning for the other
when we are for me.

Each gesture small
a song in a voice box
one day a birdsong.

Dark Light, or Special Gifts

While light is always relative and gradual, darkness is absolute.

 

Philosophy aside but how often have we felt darkness to be darkness, and light to be a million other things/words?

2014 is a happy year for me, but I still regard winter as my awakening. See that’s the paradox of living. The necessity of creating a winter if you crave one. The imagination of an unending summer if you are deep in routine, habit. Together, we live on, a dream before the nap, and a dream upon wake, truly a-wake when a-sleep.

Desperado Meaning

Desperado meaning.

I think this is the Xth post titled ‘Desperado’.

I am obsessed with this word. It resides in the little known bird of the inner eye.

I cannot languish enough but pine, dream-cry and scratch at the surface of what it means to bleed desperado.

Mens Solid Silver Cuff Bangle Solid, classic silver twisted cuff bracelet bangle for all types who love the luster of old silver. At 6mm wide, its design is the classic rope twist, with a distinct middle 'ethnic' coil. The silverware is malleable, to adjust for wrist size or wear along any length of the arm.
