Pop of Colour.

What not to love with a tier of colourful towels rolled up together.

Overwhelmed by the minimalist concept idea, I tend to buy things in monotones with the same texture; hoping for synchronization in overall looks. End up, the whole picture will not turn out as what I hope for. It was like missing the 'wow' factor. Frustrated by that, I did some research on 'Minimalist Home Decor' and found an interesting fact.

Add a little pop of colour in any area of your house. For example, use a brick red throw on a black leather sofa. For instance, it will freshen up the looks of your living room and spice up the mood. If bright hues aren’t your thing, try out gray shams and sheets speckled with soft lilac.

Amazingly, this small elements add drama to a room and the entire house!

Bits & Tips : Charming Side of an Empty Bottle.

As a big fan of soy sauce, there's always a big bottle of it in my cupboard.

I rarely throw an empty soy sauce's bottle into wasting bin. There is something really charming about glass bottles. Old-fashioned yet modern, simple and clean. What I love most about glass bottles is that it is so incredibly easy to reuse and repurpose them.

All you need to do before reusing them is to wash them in hot, soapy water. Scrub off any stickers or labels and voila, you have lovely, glass bottle to use any way you’d like. If you’d like, you can stick left over bits of wrapping paper or applying any decoupage technique.

Using soy sauce bottle as a flower vase is a clever way to repurpose an empty bottle rather than throw it in the trash.

Simple Thing That Makes Me Happy.

I used to arrange my clothes by colour coordinated. Line up serving plates by sizes. Hanging towels by length. Only by looking at my organized drawer, will draw smile on my face and brighten up the whole day.

Since I got married, I've been swept away by the hectic life of juggling between work, being a housewife and a mom. My used-to-be-organized closet has been cramped by my husband's sweatshirt and washed out denims. There are stack of baby diaper on my dressing table. It will take nearly 10 minutes to search for our TV's remote control that lying under a mountain of laundry or if we're lucky enough, it will be found inside our son's mini truck toy.... and the list goes on.

I am not happy.

Until I stumbled across this phrase while surfing the net the other day.

Then, I decided to create this blog.

To celebrate the reunion with my long lost crush;
