journey :sleep deprived

day one
I need to sleep! I've been up since yesterday morning and haven't slept since. I can't wait to get on board the fourteen hour flight ajead of me to rest,,although I know I won't fall asleep. I have what I like to call plane-sleep-phobia. The most I can take is a fifteen to twenty mind nap,and yes I've tried the sleeping mist. Right now I am very tempted to ffind the spa in this airport.

finally,finally. i'm not quite sure what the weather is all about lately, dust and more dust. Still,it is summer!

So how do you like packing your stuff ? Pour moi, packing a few days in advance is ideal. Sometimes, if i've got lots of time on my hands i would write down a list of the things i need not forget. Finally, although im not the best 'packer' there is, i like doing it on my own to know where everything is. But the best packing of all is that done at the end of a vacation, a suitcase filled with new goodies.
a few tips from independant traveler :
+ Rolling your clothes: Rolling works well with pants, skirts and sports shirts. Lay the item face down, fold back the sleeves and then roll from the bottom up.

+ Fold Clothes Together: Take two or more garments, for example trousers, and lay half of one pair on top of the other. Fold the one on the bottom over the pair on the top. Then take the other and fold it on the top. This gives each pair some cushion where you've folded it so it's less likely to crease or wrinkle in the folds.

finally, a tip from me: always pack shampoos,perfumes,liquids in 2 plastic bags to avoid unnecessary explosions.

Another thing i do before i leave is purchase a few summer items. This year i didn't have the time to do alot of pre-vacay shopping. I just know these are going to be my summer sandals.

finally,before i forget~ last night was Noon by Noor's fashion show. Everything was tres chic and luvly. from the STC opening to the glow-in-the-dark iced drinks. a great beginning to the designer's line!

last night i also found hundreds of hair-styling tutorials on youtube, so when you've got nothing better to do bring out all your bobby-pins and experiment!
this one was my favorite, minus the haircolor and leaves..i think its very pretty.<3

p.s. my borders are a result of fooling around with a new tool at photobucket.

to: my blog

dear blog, i'm sorry for being such an awful owner. Ive seriously had no extra time to do anything lately. Things will get better between us once im done with this semester, c'est promise!
I have been super-loaded with assignments and a very fulltime schedule which leaves me too lazy to do anything every night. Forgive me nyxxie for the late response, here it goes :
These are the rules:

1. Link the person(s) who tagged you
the luvly nyxxie
2. Mention these rules on your blog.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.

+ I can never mess my bed up during the day.When i take short afternoon naps on my bed i'd cover up with a throw or something but never pull the quilt out of order. I hate messy beds. Obsessive Compulsive ? maybe.

+ When sitting in the passenger seat with someone driving, i count light poles on the street,or bushes.

+ I still love tom&jerry. Sometimes when i have nothing better to do i look them up on youtube and watch them.

+ I love eating ice.

+ When im really embarassed or being scowled at, i must smile. I've had this problem since i was in the third grade. The principle once called me to her office for getting an F in math. She kept asking me why I was careless, and all i could do was smile until she let me go. I didn't say one word.

+ I cant walk straight.seriously. Whenever im walking by someone they end up getting closer and closer to the walls beside them, and end up switching sides with me. I have balance problems, thus i can't even ride a bicycle. Thank god ive learned to balance myself on a horse.

4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them.
im breaking this rule.

a while ago i accidentally found a tv program that i fell in love with. Dress my nest , by Thom Filicia. The designer basically take any outfit picked by the candidate and designs a room according to that outfit. Although i hate the attitude, his work is pretty impressive.

meanwhile,i've been trying to enhance my skills with a software im a newbie to. HomeDesigner by Better Homes.I'm gonna need sometime to master it, but i can tell i'll have a lot of fun experimenting with it. It's also great for visualizing my ideas sometimes.

my latest creations involve a thank you card i made for a baby shower, and an unfinished layout banner pour mon amie :

we're having a mini pool party tommorow morning, so must get sleep to save my energy! au revior dear blog.
