Rule #46 The Joy of being Low Maintenance

Inspired by: http://thoughtcatalog.com/johanna-mort/2015/03/19-things-only-women-with-a-low-maintenance-fashion-sense-understand/

1. You have three hairstyles: down, ponytail, and bun.
True! 

2. You have one pair of shoes that you wear with 95% of your wardrobe.
True!

3. Most of your outfits are just some combination of t-shirts and jeans.
T-shirts and shorts. Hehehe! 

4. This makes getting ready massively easy. What are you going to wear? Throw on the first pair of jeans and t-shirt you can find. Put on aforementioned shoes. Boom. Done.
Yes, super fast and easy! 

5. Sundresses are also great because they look like you put more effort into getting ready, but you definitely didn’t.

6. You have to be very clear with your hairstylist that you need a cut that’s easy to maintain, because you’re not about that life. Your idea of styling your hair is making sure the part is nice, and if you’re feeling fancy, throwing a clip or headband up there.
True!

7. You find make up a little terrifying. You understand the basics, and might even throw some on before leaving the apartment, but you once watched a YouTube clip about contouring and contemplated the existence of witchcraft.
No interest in make up. 

8. Whenever you hear that you have to wear heels to an event, you get considerably less excited.

9. Then you get all dressed up, and get kind of excited! Heels aren’t so bad! Your legs look so much longer! You should wear them more often!

10. And then about half way through the event, you remember why you hate heels, and wish you could just 127 Hours your feet, and hack them off with a dull pocketknife. It would probably hurt less than wearing these shoes for another three hours.

11. You envy that somehow men can get away with wearing Converse with a suit for certain occasions, because that’s the dream, honestly.
Yes, man fashion are more easy and simple. 

12. When your friends want to go out, your favorite thing to wear is a cool jacket over a t-shirt and your nicest-looking jeans.

13. Your friends relish the days when you let them dress you up. It’s like Christmas, but with dresses! And heels! And eyeliner!

14. Every time you dress up, you get a semi-Cinderella moment from your friends. Wow! You look so different! Who knew you had such a defined waist under all those sweatshirts! You should wear that more often!

15. The back of your closet is where all of your “nice clothes” reside. You pull them out for weddings and funerals, and that’s about it.

16. When you first got a job/internship that required you to dress “business professional” you cried a little bit because honestly what could you wear.

17. Then you figured out that you could rock “business professional” by mixing and matching a handful of items, and you’ve already mastered that technique.

18. You own contacts, but will often just wear your glasses, because you don’t feel like exerting the effort.

19. Going to the gym at the end of the day is really just an excuse to wear your comfy gym clothes for hours leading up to it.

Last day of 2016

Today is the last day of 2016. Always feel really grateful for a good year well spent.
In 2016, I went Japan with bestie and 3 small trips. Until now I am still missing the warmed tamago that I ate in Japan conveyor belt. Looking back at my photos, I realized I went BKK twice this year. LOL! The only thing I still have not accomplished is travelling with my love. One day I believe I am able to achieve it.

Attended a very spectacular traditional Indian wedding. Met many new friends, increased my network and went for many food hunts and interesting places in SG. Hence my weight have been going up or keeping stable. Was feeling lucky to be able to attend NDP live twice in the new location; Sports hub.

This is also the year I learned to detach from my Mum outing gang and found my own nua-ing gang to kill time. However I still prefer to kill all my time with my love. Developed a few interests but have yet to get started on them. Most probably 2017 is the year to stop procrastinating and get started on them!

Happy new year if you are reading this! Wish you have a good 2017 ahead!
