why do boring colour blocks when you can do cool prints?

Am in green today. With many patches of shades of green on my top too. I like prints. So should you.

I have an obsession with pants. This obession is mainly how I am consumed with a need to find the best fitted pants ever, to my body shape that is. It is always so easy to find a dress, or skirt, or better yet, long skirt that is figure-forgiving and hides all your flaws. But I think I am speaking for all the women out there, that we wish we could find a pair of pants that well, skims the curves and hides all the flaws there is to hide – saddlebags, muffin tops – the names are many and nasty too.

Also, is it true that certain pant cuts are suited to certain body types? like how high wasited pants never look good on people with fat thighs? Or how cigarette pants are only for cigarette-slim pins? AH. The questions and answers are ridiculously hard to come by without any empirical evidence! This will hence be my next pet project, busy schedule aside, to try out different pants. And then prove everyone (everyone who has been telling me about the right cut for the right person when i insist it’s the right fit) that it’s the right FIT, not the RIGHT CUT – and everyone can wear pants of any cut!

First up:

The high-waisted wide-legged straight

The high waisted super wide leg flared

The low waisted wide legged flare

The harem pants, or pantoloons (is that how you spell it?)

I really like harem pants. ALOT. I like pale pink. I also really really like shiny sateen. Put them all together and you know i am dying to get a pair of these.

 

The highwaisted skinny pants hybrid

The cigarette! and Ms. Audrey Hepburn herself

    

And alot of recent additions: Jeggings = jeans + leggings

 

 Wish CHERRY LUCK (:

Olivia Palermo

with one comment

 There is something about Olivia Palermo that really appeals to me. The fact that you do not hear much about her, or maybe how she always looks fresh from a bath, or that she is always going easy on makeup. There is also something very comfortable about her face that while she’s really pretty, she also exudes an aura of calm that’s a sight for sore eyes. As Bernie of OCEAN Thirteen says ” ‘NUFF SAID” (:

When was the last time you decided to do nothing but romp around in bed?

And even if you’re romping, do it with style at home.

The weather has been really hot recently, after seeing plenty of rain. Do you know in Hongkong, it’s still cold at this time (now) when spring/summer would have otherwise already arrived in previous years? Global warming is really a concern and we really need to do something about it.

As a voracious reader, CHERRY has came across an article recently about how the consumption of meat is one of the major contributing sources of greenhouse gases. In fact, the amount of greenhouse gases arising from the entire livestock industry (from rearing, harvesting, processing, transporting etc.) is more than all the amount of greenhouse gases arising from the transportation industry! Such is the magnititude of the comsumption of meat on Earth right now – quite disgusting, no? All this when consuming too much meat is not good for your health too. Personally, I have banned myself from KFC chicken for the cruelty to animals and am now really glad I did – think of all the greenhouse gases emitted from the transportation of the chickens, killing of chickens etc. Currently, chicken and fish are about the only meats I consume most. Occasionally I have my bah chor mee and duck confit, anything else is a no-go. I plan to cut out the types of meats I consume as a slow and sure way to control my personal meat consumption. 

What I am trying to say is if everyone just could cut out one type of meat (preferably red meats because without which you would still survive and that it doesn’t do anything fantastic to your health) we could reduce the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by decreasing meat consumption demand.

It is more than an environmental issue, or just a health issue. I think it’s time we all stood together to take a united stand on something this important to our present, our future and our very existence. I mean, if we can’t even stand together on the same page to do something that can only be all good for us, then what hope is there left for humanity?

Oh well, let’s just see what we could do with another ice age.
