fare thee well iphone.

OK! I'm now back to blogging. I've been too lazy this holiday and have been going out to London a lot to meet my bff so didn't manage to update. But I'm back now :) Thanks for all those comments! I am going to reply them one by one now :)*

So me and my boyfriend went to London for post Christmas shopping on boxing day,, meeting Larissa and Sharon. (please check out Larissa's amazing blog here!) It was a horrible day in London. There were people EVERYWHERE. What makes it even worse,, the tube was ON STRIKE - so NO tube service at all. You could imagine how bad the traffic would be. It took us 2 hours to find a parking space. Then you need to queue to get in Selfridges. Big sales everywhere,, but it was really hard for you to look around as it was SO crowded anywhere. SO I didn't manage to get anything nice. And highlight of the day: My iphone got stolen! Someone stole it from my pocket :( It makes my Christmas not so perfect :( but well at least I'm physically ok. Anyways,, it was such an experience - boxing day in Londond,, haha.


underdress: Initial @ Hong Kong
knit top: Initial @ Hong Kong
leggings: H&M
ankle boots: All Saints
Hat: random boutique in Hong Kong

-

So as promised,, this is what I made for my boy for his Christmas present :) a DIY snow globe.

What you need:

- distilled water
- glycerin (can make a visit to the Boots, its for slowing down the snow in the water)
- a glass globe (can be any container as long as there is a cover for it)
- small waterproof ornaments
- fake snow (I used some glitters instead)
- super glue



This is the final product :)
hee,, I'm glad that he likes it :)

-

New Year's Eve is coming! What are your plans? 

with love,, es.

  14. That's awful news about your iPhone! ): my cellphone got stolen recently as well... but it wasn't anything great like yours but it still makes life so much more difficult without fast and easy communication! Hope you're able to find a good replacement soon. I also really love your outfit :) I bought a pair of ALLSAINTS clogs and I gotta say...theyre super comfy!

  41. You look sweet and comfy!

    i love sales to get some great things at really low prices, but today i went to a mall and got a headache for just how many people were there!
    I also was caught up in the middle of a strike in November in London and it was chaotic, the buses were all crowded and even some roads were closed to help the party... Though I still love London :)

    Happy New Year!

  57. ESTHERRRR! Happy New Year!!! (Well, almost- 2010 has another hour left here in Italy...) I'm having a grand old New Year's Eve- we have Harry Potter on the TV (woohoo!! LoL) and my family came over for a "fun" meal (consisting of all little "tasting" foods- chips, crisps, Italian rice balls, cheeses, etc) and card games! It gets intense here... ahaha. How is your New Year's going? OMG I feel so horrible that your IPhone was stolen! That is horrible! Stupid horrible person that took it! Will you be able to replace it?

    I love the boots you're wearing in the picture, and the snow globe is an ADORABLE DIY gift! I must give it a try!!!

    Happy New Year's!! xoxo
