I have always been interested in using silk flowers as a form of decorations around my house and enjoy arranging them in ways that make the whole room brighten up. The thought of using fresh flowers instead is definitely appealing but I have never gotten to it due to time limitations (i.e. much more maintenance needed with the real deal). In addition, I was not confident handling fresh flowers as I did not have the experience doing so. Therefore, when I was invited to attend a floral workshop by A Better Florist, I was truly delighted. Finally an opportunity to pick up the basic skills in an activity I have thought of learning many times previously!
The Trainer Preparing The Materials For The Flower Arrangement Workshop
All The Attendees Listening Attentively To The Trainer’s Instructions
The Trainer Demonstrating How We Can Arrange The Flowers Beautifully
After a detailed demonstration of how we can prepare the different flowers before they can be arranged (e.g. fluffing the carnations so that their petals can open up nicely and plucking the outermost petals of the roses to reveal the blemish free firm inner bulbs), we started creating our own bouquets.
I had a really fun time doing the arrangement and this is what I eventually came up with –

It felt amazing to walk down the street in a lovely bouquet of blooms! Thanks to A Better Florist for the workshop experience.

I am obsessed with white outfits recently and have been wearing them all the time. There is something so sleek and classic about white that makes this color appropriate to wear whatever the season is.
My husband and I went for a spontaneous trip to Johor Bahru, Malaysia over the weekend. As it was a last minute decision, we were limited in our choices of accommodation in the area we wanted to stay in. Therefore, we were pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel we have selected turned out to be a beautiful place to stay for a short vacation! Apart from its convenient location and clean rooms, what I loved most about the hotel is its small but tastefully decorated lobby. First impressions do count and I was delighted with the overall ambience upon stepping into Geobay Hotel.
If you are still procrastinating, here are some last minute gift ideas with my picks from Amazon.
Hi everyone! I have finally settled down in my new abode after a whole week of packing, moving, cleaning up and replenishing on home necessities. The whole process has been quite tiring but I must say it is definitely rewarding as I am really happy with the environment! Although I love my new home (especially the large walk-in wardrobe!), I can’t say that it is going to be my permanent home as my husband and I are likely to move should our family expand. But for now, we are happily enjoying our new home and here are some pictures that I would like to share and document on this blog!
