Fashionista Cherieladie #5

By |September 1st, 2014|

Every time I craft the Fashionista post on my blog, I get reminded that yet another month has gone by. There is only 4 more months left for 2014 but it felt like the year just started not too long ago! A friend, R reminded me in my last post that I once quoted to her, “Never get so busy making a living, that you forget to make a life.”. I need that reminder again.

August have been a relatively busy month and I didn’t have the chance to take much #ootds actually. If I did, most of them were all seflies. Selfies in the toilet, selfies in the lift, selfies in the mirror in the house. If you realized.. I have been trying to take nicer ootd shots but this month, I land up with mostly selfies because I don’t have time. I’ll try harder next month. Honestly, it […]

Fashionista Cherieladie #4

By |August 1st, 2014|

Another month has passed and a new Fashionista Cherieladie post is here! July have been a totally busy month for me and I’m up in my neck with work and clocking in as much sleep as I could. I was just so tired everyday, I hope august would be better. Even though my brain tells me I’m dreaming, I am still hoping that things would ease up a little and I could cope better.

So, August is here and I haven’t forgotten about the fashionista post despite all the hectic schedules and here goes!

Everyone loved the outfit I put together last month when I attended a wedding, so here’s another simple, understated outfit that’s similar yet, totally different. Yeah. #samesamebutdifferent

Which brings me to a point that another colleague pointed out the other day to me. She said, “Everytime I see you, you are wearing something different!” It […]

Fashionista Cherieladie #3

By |July 2nd, 2014|

Hey hey! It’s my 3rd fashionista post and honestly, I have had a lot of fun taking pictures of my #ootds and dreaming up outfits. There are days where I totally feel like slacking, especially across stretches of weeks where I constantly am exhausted from work and being sleep deprived, but the mere thought of sharing those outfits with my readers here put some adrenaline in me!

This month, I am a little late with my post and didn’t make it to post on the 1st of the month. I was fire-fighting on my work till 1+ am earlier, and just had my fill of dinner/supper and finally have some time to myself to blog. I really missed my personal laptop quite a bit because I haven’t been doing much on this space. Enough of rant, here’s the outfits for the month of June! I have quite a few new […]

Fashionista Cherieladie #2

By |June 1st, 2014|

It’s the first day of the month again (whaaaatt?!  It’s JUNE?!), so it’s time for a fashionista cherieladie post once again! I’ll try and collate all my ootds of the past month and post it on the first of the month, just to share my outfits with you guys. A lot of you requested fashion-related posts because you guys feedback to say you like how i dress… but actually, I don’t think I can write anything in that genre so a simple ootd post I’ll do!

Anyhow, I still can’t believe that there are still people asking me what it means, it means outfit of the day. So, if you like anything that i shared and would like to know where i get them from, just ask away.

I strongly believe one doesn’t need to buy expensive clothes to look good, so I don’t really own anything expensive. 🙂

And oh, I didn’t […]

    Fashionista Cherieladie Post #1- because i am yummy mummy (wannabe).

Fashionista Cherieladie Post #1- because i am yummy mummy (wannabe).

By |May 2nd, 2014|

I have been wondering about my blog voice – does my blog represent who I am? I think it mostly does and I think by reading my blog, one can really know how I am exactly in real life. I don’t blog with an alter ego and I’m pretty much what you read here. Or at least, that’s what people have been telling me.

My blog is my thoughts, out loud. And simply, just that. So, I thought it would be good to showcase a well-rounded Cherie on the blog as well. Include some of the stuff that I post on my social media in my day to day life, and since I am a yummy mummy wannabe… I am going to create this “Fashionista” category and do a monthly post on my #ootd and #wiwt for the month that has past.. (i actually do have a #fashionistacherieladie hashtag as […]

Outfit of the day (ootd).

By |February 6th, 2014|


Honestly, my outfit of the day (ootd) isn’t much today. it’s not even anywhere fashionable. it’s just a plain dress (although its a sentimental one), but i wanted to document it still. because i was on the train today and SOMEONE OFFERED ME A RESERVED SEAT!


I spent the entire train journey home wondering if i looked horrible or terribly preggers or something. By the way, if you are wondering.. i’m not. I’m still thinking about donning my bikinis in the upcoming BKK trip.

So, errrmm. do i look fat or something? If you think i am, do tell me so! At least it can be a source of motivation for me to do something. *looks at ushape in the living room and wonders if i should go on it again*

or maybe i think too much. maybe the lady was just being nice and […]

a whole new meaning to monday blues.

By |May 20th, 2013|

it’s monday and im sure a lot of you are feeling the blues.  but you know what? you cant be more blue than I am after a 16 week break.


im officially back at work today after maternity leave ended mid last week plus some days of leave to bag myself another weekend. and as for the blues, im joking!


im generally quite chirpy and smiley today and here’s the ‘monday blues’ im actually referring to!

my #ootd – decked in blue from head to toe.


gotcha! its always easy to look at the negatives and wallow in it but staying positive does make my day a lot brighter and lighter! although im almost sorry this morning that I gotta leave the kids behind and head to work. I had a really breezy day today with just one meeting and sorting out some IT […]

my maternity fashion.

By |October 27th, 2012|

maternity fashion is the topic i’m gonna talk about today! I’m passionate about it because I believe in looking good regardless.

I almost never get a seat on the trains, even when my tummy is swaying on the trains in the faces of the commuters. I even once had a guy standing beside me snatch the ‘reserved’ seat when its finally vacated. goodness really. I think there could be three scenarios:
1. they are blind
2. they lack the basic courtesy or empathy
3. they simply don’t bother or dont think I deserve the seat

I secretly suspect its also partly due to my dressing. I think I don’t dress like the typically pregnant women in loose fitting clothes. almost 95% of the time, I’m in fitting clothes that clings on to my skin.

ootd: necklace from diva, blank maternity tank top from asos maternity, stretchy skirt from pull & bear, Casio […]

about the lace collar

By |May 17th, 2012|

I find it an interesting 'accessory to own, and bought it even though it's expensive by my standards.

and this post is for since she asked for more pictures of it.

worn all buttoned up. you can easily spice up a simple blank tank top to make it look smart, or pair it with other colors for interesting details.

upclose on the lace details.

lace details at the back.

slightly more casual look with a few buttons undone.

or unbutton everything!

super versatile piece. I super love it.

took it off since I'm heading home!

how? nice? not nice can tell me. it's OK. hahahhha.
