Shorty

I'm short and I gained a noticeable amount of weight. Which is clearly not good BUT I am slowly watching my diet and will get back to the gym when I can. I feel utterly gross about my body at the moment. Anyway, big changes in life! I have a full time job! Yay me! I don't know how I'm gonna handle it but, I will try not to kill myself (so bloody dramatic). Its a huge change for me, where soon I have to move out and live on my own... Ahh, no longer a child. Right, the other day I was out with my nonsense friends for Syiok Sendiri 4 (which was awesome, btw) and I decided to take a spin with by adding an old pair of short gladiator heels to my casual outfit.
Top: Loose folded shirt, Topshop
Bottom: Distressed denim shorts, Cotton On
Bag: Mini circle sling bag, taobao.com
Shoes: Gladiator heels with double ankle strap, Zalora

These heels are old but gold. I bought them back in 2014 and it is still in amazing condition and take note, I'm not someone who takes care of things well so its crazy how new the shoe still looks. I think a good way to not look hoochie when wearing heels with shorts is to not wear heels that are too tall or shiny. Keep it minimal with a strapped sandal heels or edgy with the gladiator style. Remember to stay away from shiny heels when in shorts! Oh and if you have the app WEAR, follow me @ncavien. Till here, I hope you're all well!

Dust It

You know sometimes, there are opportunities that come your way and immediately you would say yes to as long as you're earning money even though it might not me the most rational decision? I'm that kind of person - greedy for money (or as we Malaysians like to say 'money face' or 'kiam siap'). Its a habit I have adopted since college, constantly saving money back then and now constantly wanting to take up extra jobs just to earn extra. To be frank, it is a very bad and unhealthy move. I tire myself out so much where even when I have off time I'm thinking about work. My boyfriend probably understands how stressful it can be dating someone like me. Another offer came along (I've yet to get more details) and immediately I thought 'Yes, another side job, more money!'. Horrible. I then calmed myself down to really think about it before making a decision which could potentially kill me before I turn 30 years old. 

Anyways, I just wanted to get it out there to those who think like me (or more like greedy like me), to just really think about it before taking up an extra job. Do you really need it? If you do, by all means go ahead. If you don't, save yourself from the stress. You don't need all that stress at such an early age. Slowly move up the ladder, be patient and work smart (and hard at times). You'll make it there someday. Okay, enough rambling, here are some new outfit pictures for you guys!
Top: Ruffled cropped top, Zara
Bottom: Striped culottes, Love and Bravery
Bag: Mini sling bag, Mango
Shoes: Thick platform creepers, Unbranded (Platinum Mall, Bangkok)

The top actually has really thick black straps but I decided to tuck it in and make it into a tube instead as I think it is more flattering on my body. The thick straps make my arms look really fat. Till here, I'll be back to rant again with new outfits. Hope you're all well! Nx

Breathe

First of all, I would just like to apologise for the lack of update here on my blog. I've been working and recently I went on a trip with Malaysia Airlines to Borneo Jazz 2016 and to Mulu to explore the caves and experience mother nature. If you follow my Instagram you would see a couple of shots I shared of the caves I visited. It was such a wonderful experience and the best part was being able to explore and experience it with a group of really nice, fun people. Honestly, I was lost for words (well, not literally, I just kept on going OMG hahaha) when I was in the caves. Its a must visit, even if you're not an adventurous person like me. Anyway, that aside, I recently bought a new bell sleeved top which I've been really into lately. Here is how I styled it my monochromatic way.
Top: Bohemian bell sleeve top, Forever 21
Bottom: A-line mini skirt, Topshop
Shoes: Slip on sandals, Charles and Keith
Bag: Mini round sling bag, taobao.com

This top is a very bohemian styled top which you would usually see at Coachella paired with nude coloured skirts and gladiator sandals or boots. That isn't really my style so I switched up with my black pieces for a monochromatic look. I gotta be honest tho, I did photoshop some bug bite marks off my leg which I got when visiting Miri/Mulu. Pretty sure they are sandfly bites but my goodness they look so gross and red. I have absolutely no clue on how to get rid of them. Till here, I will update again soon. Hope you're all well! Nx
