Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men

Remember Dhini’s trench dress from “50 Shades of Black”?


and the Hussein Chalayan muscle dress from Coming of Age?

Put your hand up if you’re as shocked as I am at the speed of which January is cantering past our very eyes. Even yesterday, I was wishing people “happy belated new year” (surely you’re allowed to say this for a month!) but within 24 hours I won’t be able to treat 2013 as a newbie anymore. The year has already begun! Out of my 3 New Year’s resolutions, I have fulfilled 2. Hooray, a pass for Cecylia! I’ve started to flex my digits at the piano and pay my deserted closet more visits, to the extent that my hideously filled wardrobe is morphing from an ugly duckling, into a swan of moderate attractiveness. When the closet room transforms herself into the beautiful bird, I’ll give you a virtual tour. I promise. Pinky promise. Another great blessing which sprung out from January is that I’ve become more fulfilled in my balancing act of juggling vetting, styling and blogging. A super thankful heart and a deep desire of self-improvement probably have been the key catalysts. I have a few exciting projects in the pipeline which I’ll share with you in due course. It seems that Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was right after all, why dream small when you can dream big? Duh!

Everyone I’ve spoken to so far is optimistically excited about 2013. What about you?

如果你也觉得一月份超快得飞去了,请你举手。就连昨天,我还在祝贺人“迟来的新年快乐”(你能在新年的第一个月中说这句话吗?),但在过24小时,新年就不再是“新”的了。年初我保证了自己3个新年决议,其中我才做了2个,至少及格了。。。开始弹琴了,钢硬的手指变得弯曲了。我的衣房也多被拜访了,被忽视的衣服又一次得到宠爱,甚至我的衣房都变了个样。它从丑小鸭即将成为一般般的天鹅。等它变成一只漂亮的鸟后,我会给你个网游。保证。另一样让我感恩的事是我对我难以平衡的工作生活改变了态度。现在的心只充满了感激。我的博客过段时间会有一些使人兴奋的消息,到时候我再告诉你们。Johann Wolfgang von Goethe,著名的德国作家,曾说“别做小的梦,因为他们没有能力移动人的心”,愿这句话激发我们。你对2013年有什么感受?

Oh I would love the virtual wardrobe tour! And organisation tips if you have them. I’m always drooling over Ikea catalogues with everything so organised…never stays that way for long in my wardrobes though! haha!

Hope January has been good to you :)

Aww I know what you mean! I need to clean it out/up and show it to you. Ikea is great for inspiration- how do they keep everything so clean?!

I think it’s because they showcase less junk…haha! easy to be organised when the wardrobe doesn’t overflow :P
