Must Love Glass

The moment I first laid eyes on Cinderella's glass slipper from my fairytale book, I immediately fell in love with it... and one day vow to have one. And my ardent desire for this particular glass slipper effused to other glass items which I now long for as well.

Words into Reality

The beauty of my desktop wallpaper is essential. I am in front of the computer 6 times a week and 8 hours a day, so I really put a lot of effort and thought into choosing my desktop wallpapers. I also change it every so often, so that I won't get bored of staring at the same scenery over and again. This obsession of mine gave me this brilliant idea (well, at least for me) - I'd add some quotes into the pictures, and these quotes would serve to guide me and inspire me. Since I would be seeing a lot of it, those words would be implanted into my mind and I would unknowingly be living by those words. And the rest I leave to God and the Universe. They will conspire to turn this words into reality. So far... I think it's working!

Giovanni Boldini

Boldini's paintings captured fashion at it's finest. He did portraits of nobel and prominent women who wore such elegant and stylish frocks. The lacy, flowing, ethereal designs could have served as inspiration to a number of designers of our time - Valentino, Marchesa, Versace, Givenchy and Elie Saab, to name a few. See the similarities in the details.


And now...
