Pink and Polka

Don't be fooled by the sunlight, I'm not experiencing hints of spring by this, and in fact it was rather windy, with cold breeze blowing. It was warm enough for me to walk on the streets without my trench on however, which was just what I needed. Wearing my recent acquisitions as you've seen previously (this cute blazer is still available at I'm surprised by the soft material of this blazer, almost like silk. Have you ever felt that uncomfortable feeling when wearing a blazer and you can't raise your arms up because it's too tight around the shoulders/arms? Sometimes I wonder if it was just cause I have enormously large arms. But now I've come to think that maybe it's all in the fabric, because I find it easier to move around in this blazer.

Anyway, how has your weekend been so far? Mine's pretty good, though I feel really guilty. For the past weeks I've been trying to be on a diet. But just when I start to make progress, good treats present themselves; there was Valentine's day of course, and if you've read my previous post then you know what happened; then Penguin's cousins invited us for an Indian dinner (my ultimate favorite!), their treat; and suddenly, my boss decided to treat the whole office to a buffet dinner tonight. Ugh, I don't have enough courage to say no. How could I? I've gained so much weight since I started blogging and it shows in my pictures (see my archives if you want proof). Do you guys have any tips or suggestions for me? I need to stop eating too much. Badly. Haha.

Cheers, Carla

    You look super cute and sweet there.

    See you!

  7. I love the way you wore this beautiful blazer! So pretty! And you're right, there are certain fabrics that make you feel less comfortable.. this look is amazing, you look very pretty! Oh, about the diet.. I've tried this thing where I eat only raw fruits&vegetables for 6 days, like carrots, tomatoes, apples, bananas, melons, cucumbers, etc.. and then the 7th day I have a "day off" where I eat whatever I want. I must admit, it was insanely hard for the first week, but then when the 7th day came, I didn't even want to indulge in any food. I lost about 6 pounds in 3 weeks, and it made me feel better. It did work for me, I don't know how this does for other people, so this is just what I experienced :)
    Good luck!
