Superheroes !

I don't really know why but I keep buying little superhero inspired clothes for my baby boy. Maybe cause they are all cheap and whatever he wears, I think he looks cute. So far I have Superman, Spiderman and a Batman one, but the Batman one I'm still not 100% happy with because it doesn't have a cape and hood like the Spiderman and Superman one does.

Well, he seems to be getting the idea of trying to be a superhero. 


I'm fllllyyyyyyiiiiinnnnnnggggg!!!!

Turban style

I have always liked the very glamorous look of the turban. When I think of turbans the two first things that come to mind are majestic Indian Maharajahs and Elizabeth Taylor who favoured the style.

Over the years the style has appeared in may different ways and can 
be worn by both men and women of any age.

Miuccia Prada also included the look in her Spring 2007 show. That is a few years ago now but it is a look that is timeless.

So one day recently when I saw some of my silk scarves which I never use, I thought to myself, 'I must figure out and learn how to use these.'

 So I went onto youtube and started searching for videos on how to tie scarfs and started trying out a few different styles and love how easy it it to change your look with just a square piece of cloth. This was my first look wearing a self tied turban and I went to my friend's child's birthday party and many complimented me on the look.

I also had a two toned bawal scarf my friend Datin Juma gave to me a while ago as a present and starting experimenting with that too. I realised her designs work really well too because of the different tones on the fabric when you tie it up you get nice different shades. To add a bit of bling just add a brooch to the front.

I then visited her push cart at the Curve and bought all the ones I like, which was quite a lot ! She has so many different colours and she has ones that are two toned, three toned, 
mixed colours - lots to choose from!

One of her latest designs is called Bawal 205 and this design is brilliant because the different colours along the sides of the scarf mean that you can fold it four different ways and you will get four different colour combinations. Yay! This is Datin Juma modelling the different ways she wears the Bawal 205.

( all photos of Datin Juma credited to her facebook page - Tudung Aidijuma )

And this is me trying out some different ways of tying it up, as both a full turban, half style turban and another one where I tie it around my ponytail too. It's all the same scarf but just folded in different ways so you get the different colour combinations.

 As a special gift for Raya, I have three Aidijuma Bawal 205 scarves to giveaway ! Yay !

20 by Rizalman at Tesco

One day just recently, I went to Tesco to get some groceries when suddenly as I was walking in I saw a bunting which read '20 by Rizalman for Tesco'.

What?! Rizalman, one of my favourite Malaysian designers has done a collection for Tesco ?!!
Oh my God! I have become even more blur since baby. How could I not know about this?!

I quickly looked around their apparel section and found the collection.

I loved what I saw. And immediately knew I would be leaving Tesco with more than just a few groceries.

There are 12 designs in this collection which is a special collaboration between Rizalman and Tesco for Raya 2012 and it is to celebrate his 20 years in the Malaysian fashion industry.

I bought a few and as soon as I got home I checked online to see all his designs.

 I am so glad he did this much more affordable and accessible collection for his fans and also for general lovers of fashion and style who love getting glammed up and what better time than this festive Raya period. All prices range from RM 180 - 250

These are my personal favourite pieces from the collection. They are all classic, modern yet glamourous styles which can be worn for years. And cause the fabric is all polyester fabrics, I don't have to worry about my baby drooling or throwing up on me cause I can just easily hand wash the clothes and they will be fine. I think about these kinds of things more now since baby. All you mothers reading this I know you know what I am talking about! I know my son is going to try and pull the bows off. Sigh.

And the cuts of all of the clothes are nice. I tried on the skirts and love how they fit me just perfectly.
So happy to see Rizalman managed to keep the cuts of the clothes nice even with much cheaper fabrics.


I also really, really, really want these two but alas, i have tried looking for them and after having someone check for me, they told me the two words i really hate to hear when I want something.


Sob sob sob... cry cry cry...

(i tahu tak guna sedih ke merajuk ke sebab tetap sold out... but still...waaaaah!)


Anyway the four baju kurungs I do have from this collection are now hanging in my wardrobe,
 waiting to be worn.

YAY !!!

So there is still time, but I don't suggest you wait too long. Check out your nearest Tesco now!
