THINK GLOBALLY, ACT WOMENLY

Today is International Women’s Day.

Official holiday in countries such as Afghanistan, Armenia, Cambodia, China, Cuba, Laos, Mongolia, Nepal, Russia, Ukraine, Vietnam and Zambia, here’s to celebrating all inspiring women and their achievements for the world.

According to the UN’s site, these horrible things are still happening in the world today:
·      Up to 50% of sexual assaults are committed against girls under the age of 16. (Oh, come on!!!)

·      Globally, 603 million women live in countries where domestic violence is not yet considered a crime. (WTF?!)

·      Up to 70% of women in the world report having experienced physical and/or sexual violence at some point in their lifetime. (how about some R.E.S.P.E.C.T here?)

·      Over 60 million girls worldwide are child brides, married before the age of 18. (Seriously?!)

And as former US First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt ever said “Do what you feel in your heart to be right-for you’ll be criticized anyway. You’ll be damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.”

 

ALWAYS DRESS LIKE YOU ARE GOING TO SEE YOUR WORST ENEMY.

SHOULD AULD ACQUAINTANCE BE FORGOT?

Let’s toast for a very happy new year. 

Supposedly to be my last blog at 2012, I personally can’t be more happy to welcome 2013. Lots have happened this year, and as my hubby always said “everything happened for a reason”. Although I’m the kind of person who’s always seeking for an answer “why?”, but lately I’ve learned my lessons well. One day, we’ll all know the answer. 

Karl Lagerfeld once tweeted “I design like I breathe”. Well, I believe I write like I breathe. There was a time earlier this year when I just wanted to stop writing forever, but I couldn’t. Those words were flying inside my brain. Then, I found tumblr. Perfect releasing tools to keep doing what I love.

Support from my family, friends (real ones), and you (yes, you) really means a lot for this blog (please click the LIKE button on the right column). Anyway, this blog hasn’t reach her first year yet, lots to catch up. But boy was I surprised and happy to see one Russian lady liked my tumblr (thank you). 

Someone once said that happiness is small and achievable goals. I am doing it, so I guess I’m achieving exactly that. Here’s to 2012. Cheers!!!

Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief she is beautiful.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

THE BEST THING IS TO LOOK NATURAL, BUT IT TAKES MAKEUP TO LOOK NATURAL

Treat your makeup like jewelry for the face. Play with colors, shapes, structure – it can transform you.

FRANCOIS NARS

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others. For beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness. And for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
