Moon Princess

I'm a self-confessed girlie-girl. I love anything pink, Hello Kitty, flowers, scented candles, sweet smelling soaps, lip gloss, nail polish, you know, all things cute and feminine. I was a tomboy through and through when I was little, and there was a phase when I avoided femininity at all cost, because I think it's weak and silly. Now that I have grown up and gained a little bit more wisdom and maturity, instead of rejecting the fact that God created me as a daughter of Eve, I embrace femininity and womanhood with all my heart, my soul, and my closet!

My friends and colleagues, even my boss, know that I have extraordinary love for cute and feminine little things, so I often receive them as gifts. Look at this pretty compact mirror! It's from an office colleague who just returned from a trip to China. He gives this similar gift for all of us girls at the office, only with different pictures. At first I received one with some animal pictures over yellow and gold background. Ungrateful me, being Miss Picky (and Pinky), asked him: "Don't you have anything pink?" He said no, but five minutes later he returned to my desk and exchanged the yellow mirror with this princess one. I think it's the prettiest of them all, and the only one with a princess picture on it! I feel soooooo special! Thank you, Om GusLuk! I love, love, love this! That's why I just have to share this with you friends!
Btw, it's the Chinese Moon Goddess character, Chang Er. The Chinese has a folklore about her and celebrate the Moon Cake Festival every year like I wrote in this post. I hope you don't think my rambling about a piece of compact mirror so excitedly too silly! ^_^

Though I don't think of myself as a REAL girly girl, I do have a thing for cute stuff. Isn't it great when people know that, cos then you get cute stuff as pressies! :)

this is such a gorgeous compact!

Catherine: Then I think I'd better make sure I don't lose it either, since I'm still using my old mirror, hahaha

Laura: Yep, that's rite, and what girl doesn't like presents? Tralala...

I was just like you when I was younger, I scoffed at being a girly-girl for trivial reasons but as I grew older, I embraced being a woman, and yes, I love girly stuff as well. That mirror is just adorable, I love it! I bought a compact like that (though with a different design) when I was in Hong Kong as souvenir presents to my friends, and they loved it. But silly me, I forgot to buy one for myself haha!

Cheers,

Kileen, you are my favorite fashion blogger, so a comment from you, which means you read a post of mine, really made my day! Thanks for stopping by! Pliiiiiiiiz continue to do so!! ^____^

WI: I can relate! I too buy many bags from Jerusalem for my friends, and when I'm down to the last one, I realized that I'll have none left for myself. Boohoo!
Aaaah, so I'm not the only one I guess, who at first rejected femininity, I mean. Hmmmm, if many girls go through that phase, then I think a little research in that particular topic is needed, heheh.

Hey Girl, LOL
Yes, you are one of my favorite fashion blogger :D You are welcome...I stretch my pictures too but will do waht you say. I prefer the old blogger but if the new one will help me with my pics, I'm all for it LOL. I'm glad I can make your day. Any comment from you makes my day because it means you read my blog :D

LeeAnne, Style N Season said...

Oh Sophie, you just made my day again! Here I am on a lazy Saturday after breakfast of some eggs and noodles, in front of my laptop, listening to a Youtube video (yep, listening, not watching), then I read your comment, and I was like "Oooowweyyyyy..!!"

Thank you very much! I never thought anyone would say that. In fact, I think my approach of modest clothing might scare some away, haha!

And I do read your blog! Even if I don't always make a comment! :)

Thanks, Sophie! ^__^
