things i love thursday.

22 January 2009

I do feel like I haven’t done a proper TiLT list for ages (well, in blog years, I suppose), so I shall resume the (somewhat) weekly routine! Showing gratitude is always important, but particularly in more stressful or busy situations when you tend to be so engrossed by work that you forget all the good things that have happened. So let’s TiLT away, darlings!

heart5  heart5  heart5

heart5 The historic inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th president of the United States of America. No need to explain any further. Oh, and that the lovely Michelle Obama, one of my idols, is now the First Lady. Nothing could get better than this, no sir-ee!


heart5 Getting such lovely emails asking advice! As pompous as this may sound, I am quite flattered that these readers came to me for advice. And every question was so fun! So thank you for making my week more interesting, loves!

heart5 Michael Buble. The man is amazing; I think I swoon every time I hear him sing. In fact, I’ve just bought every album he’s ever recorded for my ipod. I guess you could say I’m infatuated with his voice. Do listen to his albums; Call Me Irresponsible is my favorite – his rendition of Everytime is definitely worth your 99 cents on iTunes. 


heart5 Getting the latest issue of Elle magazine in the mail! I’m in love with the cover; Kate Hudson looks absolutely, drop dead gorgeous. In that smoldering kind of way, where she makes tailored menswear look so sexy. I would love to own the outfit – though I would substitute the lacy number for a lacy camisole. Stomach exposure may be pretty on a cover, but in real life, I’d prefer reserving that for the beach. Before I go any further on this tangent, I should like to mention that I had flipped through a quarter of the issue and I already love everything.

heart5 C.O. Bigelow. I love the intense tingling of minty goodness on my lips. The tinted gloss in plum and the gold, butterscotch-flavored gloss are absolutely fabulous. I love that barely-there shine; it’s alluring, non


heart5 Dancing around for no particular reason. Which I happen to do more often than I actually say. If I hear something with a good beat, regardless of my whereabouts, guaranteed, I will start to dance to it. Warning: It first begins as a strut/gait in time with the music. Then it morphs into full-on dancing, with only the slightest restraint since I do keep in mind that there are others watching (not that I care…). ‘Tis such a bad habit – I can’t stop myself!

heart5 Waking up all warm & cozy. One of the things I dislike about winter is waking up shivering and cold, despite the heap of blankets piled on top of me. But on those days when it’s particularly snowy outside, the heater is on full blast, so I wake up with toasty toes and a smile. A great way to start the day, I say!

heart5 Dressing up. As in what a woman would wear to the office, that is! Black pencil skirt, stiletto pumps, and a blouse tucked in. And a coat of lipstick. I really would wear this every day if I could!

… so what would you put on your TiLT list?

    such a fun post! i love your list. oohhh, waking up warm in winter is on my list too. i love that feeling of not wanting to get out of bed because you’re so taosty. And dressing up, of course! But for me it’s more in the fashion of Japanese street kids, rather than officewear. i love crazy fashion! and as always, i love your blog, dear!

  4. 22 January 2009 9:50 am

  7. 22 January 2009 11:47 am

  8. 22 January 2009 12:48 pm

    Great list! I dance around for no reason too, it’s really hard not too. And I love waking up warm, I refuse to get out of bed until I’m all toasty, haha 🙂

  9. 22 January 2009 1:02 pm

    I love your tilt list so much! I love the idea of writing down things you love instead of things you hate, it makes you see life in a much more positive way<3

    Your way of waking up sounds so nice! It’s so cold here right now and my double blanket doesn’t help much. I think tonight I will put the heater on max.

    My tilt list? hmm
    1. blogging
    2. drawing more
    3. reading
    4. watching random tv and movies
    5. drinking ice/hot chocolate coffee

  10. 22 January 2009 1:37 pm

    Mmm yes there is little better than sleeping in all warm and cozy on a snowy morning, except to do so with a cute boy! hahaha

  11. 22 January 2009 2:01 pm

    cool cool post! and such an awesome blog. I love Kate Hudson too, and I agree with you that she looks amazing on the ELLE cover!

  12. 22 January 2009 2:55 pm

    i love that kate hudson cover also..truly gorgeous!

  13. 22 January 2009 3:09 pm

    i know it is just soooo cliche to say, but she really is the chicest First Lady since Jackie O.
    Things I Love Right Now….Weeds, my silk robes and my dogs!

  14. 22 January 2009 3:36 pm

    Great list! Hehe I’m a “chair dancer” when I’m at my desk at work–I’ll bop my head and tap my feet and lip-synch to lyrics. Pathetic, I know, but it suffices until I can really let loose on the dance floor and go out salsa dancing.

  15. 22 January 2009 3:59 pm

    The Obama family looks so amazing!

  16. 22 January 2009 4:14 pm

    I’ve never heard of C.O Bigelow, but I guess I must try it sometime.

  18. 22 January 2009 5:24 pm

    I JUST discovered your blog and it immediately became my hands-down favorite. Great written content, diversity and excellent taste. New big fan.


  24. 22 January 2009 8:11 pm

    my tilt: getting my wedding dress back from the dry cleaners and it being in beautiful pristine condition! I thought I had trashed it beyond repair. Thank goodness for good dry cleaners!

    As for your last one: that is my favorite thing to wear to the office! you will find me in a variation of that quite often. 🙂

  25. 22 January 2009 9:04 pm

    I love how your “Things I love..” posts just make the day seem a little better and brighter. And just helps me find the better side of the day and to look on the bright side. 🙂

    My additions to TiLt would be:
    – Caramel coffee (Sooo yum)
    – New choreography! (I’ve a dance concert coming up, and I’m doing up an item again. I’m so excited!)

    SEAH :p

    My favourites:
    Being warm, so agree, I come from a tropical country!
    Eating chocolate, must stop as belly is gonna catch me!

    *Watching TV w/my mother dearest, and acting goofy during commercials! (my mom is hilarious)
    *Noticing a handsome boy checking me out! and then blushing : s
    *That peaceful feeling when I leave church on Sat mornings 🙂

  35. 23 January 2009 7:23 am


    And thank you for your lovely comment. 🙂

    I like lists myself too, I think they help you get organised, but also, it is good to remind yourself of what matters and brings you joy…

  36. 23 January 2009 11:01 am

  39. 23 January 2009 11:34 am

    i love your list. ❤
    dancing around spontaneously is so much fun. but what i do that’s kind of weird is dance in my seat. like i’ll be on the bus or train and start humming to myself and then start dancing around in small jerks.
    ahahaha, sometimes i think people notice…but even if they do, does it matter? there are definitely crazier people on public transportation!

  40. 23 January 2009 11:59 am

    Cute post!! xoxo

  43. 23 January 2009 2:25 pm

    It has been so hot here that I wake up REALLY warm & not very cozy :/

  44. 23 January 2009 2:58 pm

    I have exactly the same embarrassing-dancing-in-public-for-no-particualar-reason habit! haha.

    lovely post as always darling!


  45. 23 January 2009 3:45 pm

    Oh I enjoyed the Presidential Inauguration – it was very historical! And I love getting my magazines in the mail too.

  46. 23 January 2009 5:01 pm

    Love this idea and your TiLT choices!

    Mine are as follows:
    1) dark chocolate & red wine
    2) packages in the mail (and mags too of course!)
    3) brunch with my family 🙂

    Great post!


  47. 23 January 2009 6:25 pm

    Amen to dancing around for no reason. You should try tecktonik flailing. Very fun. Michael Buble is such a stud, too bad he’s such an ass too. When I worked at HMV, he stopped by and was so rude to everyone. A friend of mine had the pleasure of dealing with his bitchy divaness at a radio station here.

  48. 23 January 2009 8:51 pm

    What a fun & creative post!
    My TiLT: (even though it’s friday; TiLF then)
    -Just blog surfing
    -Wearing my new uber-warm & cozy cable knit sweater
    -Eating a grilled cheese from my new panini press :]
    -The feeling of water droplets in my hair
    -Drooling over cute peacoats
    -Magazines/packages that arrived today! =]


    P.S. I’m finally back on the “blogosphere” – new updates on my blog!

  49. 23 January 2009 9:54 pm

    aww i love reading everyone’s TiLT/TiLF lists!! 🙂 thank you! i hope it makes you all feel a bit happier!

    and to trisch: what a pity. really. i still love his voice, though!

  50. 23 January 2009 11:11 pm

    I like this list! It’s so fun and free.

    Saw your name in Just JR’s blog and I will definitely be back for more!


  51. 24 January 2009 1:04 am

    My Thursday love: smoke and espresso and leather jackets.

  52. 24 January 2009 7:37 am

    I love that you enjoy my art. Your Blog is fabulous as ever. It really is amazing.

    Viva Obama.

  53. 25 January 2009 4:55 am

    Mr. and Mrs. Obama walked past me when I went to the Inaugural Parade… it really made standing outside for 12 hours worth it! 😛

  54. 25 January 2009 2:34 pm

    i love c.o. bigelow lip balms, too. it’s my next go to after my neutrogena. and they’re even better when they go on sale at bath and body works.

  55. 25 January 2009 7:42 pm

    nina – i know! the butterscotch one i just purchased was only $3 something at bath & body works! 🙂 i was quite happy when i bought it! & it smells soo delicious.
