make up is interesting!

i recently came across a collection on Polyvore made by "sparkles of cream" (not real name), a make-up artist from the states. And it really showed me how interesting make-ups can be,
maybe you'd like to see it?
your eyes will be entertained. enjoy.

i had never liked animals, never.

but I always thought that having pets will be good for a child's growth;
you know, help them to get in touch with their emotions, and don't grow up to be a cold-hearted person nor a distant person, like me.

so I've been telling myself that when I have kids, I'll have a dog at home.
and I also hope that my husband will be one who like or love animals. haha
(and yesterday when I told my friend about this, she was like: "what? is it because of 'Marley & Me'?" haha I've not even watched the movie yet.)

I'll learn not to be scared of animals anymore, cos up until now, I figured that i sort of like animals and sometimes I think they're cute,
however, once they GET MOVIN' towards me or just show signs of life, I immediately build a wall around me, one that will make sure they won't go anywhere near myself. (or I'll run, or I'll hide, or I'll go someplace higher, or ask someone to shoo the 'dangerous moving object' away.

yup anyways, I will learn to love animals, and some of them are really adorable.
Take a look at these photos:

(do you know? otters hold hands when they sleep, so they won't float away from each other)

mandarin ducks, just look at those colours!

a lizard is actually a beautiful creature, I especially like the shape of its feet

gorgeous octopus

innocent piggies

hey beautiful creatures, I'll learn to love you someday!

hello there! this weekend i'm going to an event called Masquerade; it's a dinner party cum performances where the audience is supposed to wear a mask as a dress code. We were each given a plain black mask as our entry ticket and we can decorate the mask according to our own liking, and those who come with the best masks will win attractive prizes. I decided then, since I'll be wasting my time there (I'm just being frank here, haha, cos actually I don't really want to go to this party, just want to support my friend who's organising the party), I might as well don't waste my chance of winning something nie, right? :) So, this morning I was awoke at about 4.20 a.m. and I decided to do something useful. Since studying isn't the most attractive thing to do early in a Saturday morning, I then came to realise that I have not spiced up my mask for tonight's party at all!! Hence, I quickly turned on my creative muscles and was enthusiastic to embark on the intriguing project.

First, it involved gathering of beautifying materials around me, those whose existence I can still remember.haha and so i have a collection of:
white faux fur (from my friend's surprise birthday property), purple fake crystals (which I thought can bring me some good luck), UHU glue, a roll of silver ribbon (from last year's play that I joined), pink alphabetical velvet stickers (which I bought from this cool scrapbooking shop), silver and purple glitter glue, toothpaste box, correction liquid and other stuff that turned out to be NOT useful in the end.

Next step is to find some inspirations, and here are some of them:

you should also check out this site, the colletion is just gorgeous!

tis is my masterpiece:
not bad, huh? :D

My dream, going-to-be home!

criterion 2: wood/ gray bricks

hey there! so uh, I've always been fascinated and excited about how my future's gonna be like. well I guess many people are, right? and I like to believe that it's gonna be a great one. and I know it'll be. cos I'm the one in charge of it (teehee!) and I'm painting it really lovelily..(haha is there even such a word? :p) but nevermind... moving on, here's a list of things of my preferences for my future home!

criterion 4: white

kids room? :)

criterion 7: cottagey/ villaish atmosphere

criterion 5: bright

criterion 1: spacious

this is..well I just like it, not too sure it's gonna be in my bathroom though.

criterion 2: wood/ gray bricks

criterion 9: verandah

criterion 4: white

criterion 3: big glass windows

So basically, my home is gonna be:

1) spacious
the ceiling must be so high that if a giant were to come to my house he wont have to break my rooftop garden

2) wood/ gray bricks
I like the idea of having a house that has the relaxing-holiday mood, but maybe I can deal with having this criteria only for my villa, cos you know, sometimes we need to have that stress level for us to keep striving for our best in work/ studies.haha

3) big glass windows
I like the sun, I want to enjoy the scenery from the comfort of my own home. I want the sun to shine into my house so maybe we can try to help the environment by saving energy during the day, right? :) but they'd have to be unbreakable! haha at least to a certain great extent.

4) white (mixed with gray, brown, pastel colours, dark green/ tosca, beige/ cream, light purple)
white always give the pure and artsy feeling, and it's perfect to be mixed with a more elaborate set of furniture. white is distressing for me too, I guess...?

5) bright
it has to be really bright for when I'm doing work or having house parties or whenever I feel like being shone upon (eg. when I just woke up in the morning) Wait, but sometimes I enjoy those romantic-dim-lights-you-just-feel-dreamy-and-sleepy kind of lights also! soo...oh well! My house's gonna have two sets of lights then. hahaha

6) piano
I love pianos (and other musical instruments), they give that instant boost on the elegance level and intelligence level of the house (yes, houses have different intelligence levels too!) and that sort of sophistication, yeay!

7) cottagey/ villaish atmosphere
complete with open air spaces, if possible with the big green wide lawns, where we can run around or lie down at night to enjoy the starry sky.

8) library/ study
I must have this, with the ladder to climb also (umm..maybe that's a little to much.hello this is a HOUSE not a school or public library. get real!)

9) verandah
I would revive the English culture of having afternoon tea with my family whenever we can. Maybe once a week at least? and I'd like to sometimes have breakfast at the outdoors, enjoying the weather, and our beautiful garden as well.
10) dance studio
if I have a daughter/s, she/they'll attend ballet classes and they can practice at home to. or if they've become teenagers, they can practice for their performances in the studio as well. I have always had a passion for dancing, and I think I'll always have it until a very very very long time. So, whenever I'm free, I'll come here to learn some steps and keep the good posture. yup!

These pictures are some of others' homes I found online, and I think the interior designers are really cool. I love them. They give me ideas of what I really want for my own house. Maybe they can be your inspirations too? Anyway, enjoy!
