1. Suede elbow patches on a sweater. While these are more for looks, I love functional design aspects like this. Martha Stewart has a great, downloadable DIY pattern here.
2. Essie’s Wicked, which is my ideal vampy nail colour for this time of year, and Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua which was a good amount cheaper in the Penang airport duty free, and feels heavenly on the skin.
3. I stand by gold-filled jewelry, which never wears off in the local heat! Last night, I made a morse code bracelet for a friend’s christmas gift, and unfortunately ran out of supplies to make one for myself! Will be getting my hands on more soon, please let me know if you’d like me to make one for you or place a bulk order.
Back from the family vacation! The hard sunlight, dust and traffic made Penang seem heavy and hard, and Langkawi was a bit too manicured for me, but Alor Setar (my dad’s hometown) was comfort, cute kids and good people all the way, topped off with food I remember from childhood. I promised pictures, and they’re coming soon!
