My Shoes and me

I love shoes.

Who wouldn't? When I was in my mid-twenties, I loved buying Ferragamo. Ferragamo patent pumps in different colours were my pride and joy. I would spend my weekend polishing and loving them. As number one come along, four inches heels are lowered to two inches. By the time number came, two inches turn into flats and finly evolved into crocs.

I don't know when would I ever get a chance to wear fancy shoes again as practicality overpower vanity. This is life for me now. But who is stopping me from drooling and hankering them secretly on my heart?

Midweek Inspiration

Workload is picking up, people is bringing you down.  This is reality but I have to live with it.  I am not complaining, I rather embrace it and full use of what we have.

I like to encourage myself and you, if you are reading this. Smile, you know you are special and a limited edition.  Happy weekday!

Tissue Box by Alicia

I had a flu in mid-Jan on my birthday.  The flu was was so bad that it lasted for weeks and after that my body went into a stage of strange starvation.  It is as if has an unlimited desire for food and the hunger pangs came without  warning, if I did not eat in time, body turn cold and shivery.  This went on for quite a few weeks and thank God I managed recover completely before Chinese New Year.

During the time I was sick, I used a lot of tissue paper and realized that I hate the normal commercial box packaging that came with it.  On the other hand, if I were to buy those with plastic packaging, the plastic wrapping gets out of shape as the tissue papers were drawn out piece by piece.

I started to wonder if there is a solution for it. A reusable tissue box that is pleasing to the eyes and a decorative item in the room.  I made the first prototype during my Chinese New Year holidays.  It was horrendous.

Then the second prototype -

I put it up on FB and the respond was overwhelming.  I was encouraged and made this latest version.  How does this look?  The third prototype, give me your comments.
