Most Painful Ear Piercing, EVER

The lady who did my piercing gave dotted marks with a red marker on the spots that I requested. At this point, I was still questioning myself to proceed or not.

She smiled at me. “Looking cute is painful,” she said.

Holding back my tears from dropping onto my cheeks, I legit shouted at PIM 2’s third floor. “Fuuuuuuck!!!” my eyes were glossy.

Hopefully you can tell that it’s on a part of the ear bone, which is known to be a sensitive piercing area. So imagine how painful that felt. What was I even thinking???

Here’s a minor tip for a distraction to whoever might go through a painful piercing; go help your girlfriend shop afterwards. It worked well for me.

Cozy in Neutral

Hair braided overnight, my go-to matte lipcolor balm from Silkygirl in “Vogue”, and a neutral pallete outfit is how I normally dress for work. I’m on the night shift this month, so you might think it’s rather ridiculous to wear make-up but by the time the clock strikes at 4am, I do not look like this.

I’ve been away for a while.

Call it a creativity-block, loss of passion or simply feeling lost. Figuring out what to cover has been hard. I tried, I really did. But I was stuck in a funk. Not just at blogging, but even at life – searching, identifying what I’m most passionate about is still an ongoing process. So I got a new do and it brought a new vibe. I even read through Kayture’s most updated posts to give me inspiration. She pretty much said (almost) everything that I’m feeling and thinking.

I can’t promise a consistent flow because I want it to really express myself. Please bare with me, luvs.

Xx, Mirel

Hola lovelies!

I’ve missed it here on chocomilala 😦 So I hope you’re doing well ❤ Here’s a random thought: Am I normal for having 2 bowls of spaghetti for brunch? Most probably not…

On to the real talk! A while back I was featured in a new blog called MY LIPSTICK STAIN (Instagram), which was established by two of the sweetest and kindest chicks from Malaysia, Atul and Zahin. Their blog is all things beauty, so for all of you beauty lovers you should totally check MY LIPSTICK STAIN out.

Typical Saturday Work Look

image
I work on the weekends. For some reason, the office gets extra hella cold by the end of the week!

A cardigan over a top or just a sweater, with a pair of pants and sneakers, topped off with simple accessories = my typical look for work on the weekends. But last Saturday, I decided to jazz up “my typical look” with these Talbots heels. Now that I’m looking at this outfit, I actually look like I made a tad bit of an effort when I got ready, haha. It’s casual with a little jazz.

How would you dress for work on the weekends? I’d loveee to hear your opinions, lovelies! PS. guess who’s baby picture is that lol.

Stay fab, xx Mirel

Moodboard.1

Ah.. Tumblr. What an inspirational shit to have an account on.

I’ve been using Tumblr for a few years now. No, I’m not Tumblr famous or anything like that. I use it to find inspiration and trigger my creativity (whenever it’s dead) on things I’m passionate about. BUT that doesn’t mean I wanna strictly look and become like the girls you’d see.. Last night I went on a Tumblr-mode after a long ass hiatus. These six photos bring out my current mood where I wanna switch up my style, start journaling again with a more creative approach, then find ways to improve my makeup skills and stop having an uptight facial expression in photos. Haha. The thing about inspiration, we tend to use it in an indirectly manner mixed with our individual approaches.

Anyways, I just wanna share my current Moodboard 🙂 What’s yours? Hope your 2016 has been going great and smooth.

FAV. Hush Puppies Shoes

Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

Have you ever bought a pair of shoes JUST for a particular occasion, so you keep it on your shoe rack but never touched it until, THAT occasion came around???

Well, mine is this pair of Hush Puppies Shoes. I got these (on sale in Kuala Lumpur) and patiently waited to wear these till I go to work.. Yas lovelies – I have a job now!! December has been an absolute rainbow 🙂 Anyways. I think these scream total classic with the leather material, golden bow and short heels (about 2 to 3cms). Reminds me of the kind of shoes Audrey Hepburn wore in her movies.. The right shoes really bring MMPH, mentally and physically 😉

Is there a pair of shoes, be of any kind, that mentally and physically bring mmph to you? Lemme know what it is! Merry Christmas & Happy New Year ❤
