I know I'm supposed to be researching for my Global Environmental Politics essay (thats due this Mon), but I'm somehow 'researching' for bags instead. You see, Mom called me today to ask if I wanna get a Balenciaga...but really, I just want the Celine box Bag. I mean, I've been lusting for it like since forever.

I've always love CELINE simply because it's a fairly understated brand as compared to the likes of Louis Vuitton and Gucci et al, and plus I LOVE LOVE LOVE Phoebe Philo. Like a lot. And the Box Bag's definitely the kind of classic bag that I can see myself using for the rest of my life. It's versatile and unlike the Miu Miu which my parents got me for my 20th birthday, it definitely goes well for both formal and casual occasions. I can see myself carrying this to the mall (in jeans/denim shorts/summer dresses etc.) or heading out to the office in my corporate attire.

But my sis was quite vehemently against me getting the Box Bag. Her justifications? It's tad too expensive for a small bag and plus, it looks cheap. Cheap?!?!?! Are you effing sure? Just cos it doesn't have the brand label plastered on the bag itself....But I gotta admit, I did spotted the neon versions of the Box Bag in Sportsgirl. Imagine paying $4k for the real deal when you can get one for $34 from a high-street label. But of course, it doesn't come in luxe leather. Thats for sure.

One other bag that I'm currently lusting for? It's the Hermes' Constance bag. Pretty similar to Celine's Box as it comes in a structured shape with a long sling, but the Hermes is definitely more distinctive for its gold-plated 'H' hardware. I think I've fallen in love with it the moment I saw Diane Kruger toting one.

Mom also asked if I want the YSL Muse. Ok, I think my sister can probably shut her trap now 'cos the YSL Muse is not just a classic, it is HUGE and yes, very well-suited for daily use. I've managed to feel the leather of the bag when I was at a YSL boutique the other time and oh God, it's really soft. I've always told myself that I have to get the Muse the moment i start work. Well, I'm gonna graduate next semester. Is that a good reason why I have to get it? Shrugs :<

P.S: I'm totally chuffed to know that I actually have one follower (well, at least I do know someone's following/reading my blog!) :> Thanks Alex! You made my day <33333

It's Spring Break right now and my brother Gabe flew over to Melbourne to spend a week with my sister and I :) We didn't take much pictures cos my brother is pretty much camera-shy, though he did pose for the camera when we were at Brighton Beach. I've always wanted to visit Brighton Beach, having heard so much about the colorful beach houses. And true enough, the pictures turned out to be so pretty and nice.

 My outfit for the day! Oh, I'm also diggin' this whole side braid look these days :>

My gorgeous brother :)

The colorful beach houses! 

Prior to our Brighton Beach trip, I was at a PR firm in the morning. It was for an internship interview (really hope I'll get it, fingers crossed). And boy, the mere thought of shopping for corporate wear is driving me crazy. I think I'm already eyeing on a few key corporate essentials. But that said, I'll probably do a concise blog entry on corporate wear so do keep a lookout for the next post! :):):)

heartbreak warfare

How do you get over a broken heart?
My life is seriously in a rut.
Side note, I need to watch The Painted Veil. Ed Norton is HOT
