Radiance Stud Earrings ⎥  Spicate Howlite Bracelet
"The collection titled "CRANE" is inspired by Feng Shui and spiritual Pagoda Architecture. The 12-piece collection incorporates Lush Green Malachite, Rich Matte Black Onyx, and White Marble Howlite Semi-precious gemstones, alongside industrial rope, and in contrast luxurious silk rope. Crane includes choker necklaces, bold statement pieces, and effortlessly experimental jewelry. Staying true to the Woudenberg aesthetic, Crane is avant-garde and androgynous with each piece as experimental and effortlessly sophisticated as the next." - Wondenberg


It has definitely been awhile since I come across a jewelry line that is avant garde and minimalist. Emily Wondenberg of WONDENBERG definitely captures this aesthetic well. Toronto based, Emily is a self taught fashion and jewelry designer with an educational background in Fine Arts and Graphic Design. I absolutely love her collection; simple yet speaks volumes. Going through her website was a fun process, getting awed by all the statement necklaces and one of a kind bracelets at every second.

Amidst all the packing chaos, I am finding time to get some fresh air and have brunch with some friends. Never in the world would I ever thought packing is stressful. Well, unfortunately it is. The condo unit is currently at a very untidy state to the point that my OCD self is absolutely disgusted by. These days, I find myself in the bedroom a lot since it's the only place that I find solitude is considerably tidy. With everything lying around, it's an accident bound to happen. Five boxes, four luggages, and tonnes of paper bags to be sent to Goodwill. My clumsy self has already gotten me a few bruises. I am currently so worked up by packing, I don't even have time to digest the fact that I am about to leave a place that I called home for six years soon. #firstworldproblems

This is Not A Toy is the world's first exhibition featuring a collection of contemporary sculptures, figurines and artworks created by artist including Takashi Murakami, KAWS, FriendsWithYou, Coarse, Huck Gee and Frank Kozik. Curated by John Wee Tom and Sara Nickleson and guest curated by Pharrell Williams. The exhibition explores the conceptual toy as a form of art object as well as a contemporary cultural signifier. My favourite was of course the limited edition Chanel Be@rbrick. 

Deux.

"Dressing well is a form of good manners", quote Tom Ford. So here's the occasional "dressing-well-because-it-is-ego-boosting" attitude. Mixing luxury, contemporary and high street together in the likes of Givenchy, Helmut by Helmut Lang and Topshop for a rendezvous private VIB Rouge event hosted by Sephora with a friend before heading over to an outlet mall so she could shop her frustration and irritation away. Unfortunately, we female gender have our moments. Within 24 hours, I was with another friend exchanging deep life thoughts over tea and macarons. 

Two days. Two friends. Two discussions about life, career and men.
