346



I went out on a date with Irfan yesterday, so as usual I drove to his place to pick him up. While I was waiting for him outside his house, 
I got an Instagram notification telling me that @duckscarves mentioned me on Instagram,  I was like 'omg omg what's this' and then .. 


 this : 





I WAS FLATTERED. 
I mean, I posted that photo a month ago and D reposted it. 
But, the thing is,  I was out wearing the exact same outfit I wore in the picture.  
HAHA. Look : 



 And it was too late for me to change because I was already out. Hahahahaha. Now the whole world knows that I'm an outfit repeater ! But lol, it's okay. #noshame
Could have chosen a different day to repeat an outfit but noooo, it just had to be yesterday. Sigh, what a coincidence. *inserts laughing crying emoji*


This time around, Irfan and I didn't go to our usual place. We went to Curve instead and it was refreshing to go somewhere new for a change! We didn't walk around much since we spent a lot of our time talking over lunch but it was nice to be in a different setting. So from the photo above, you'd expect the burger to be Irfan's, right ? Wrong. Irfan's the posh classy boyfriend eating chicken and veges and mashed potatoes all fancy schamancy with proper cutlery... I on the other end of the spectrum, am the girlfriend who is stuffing herself silly with fries and a cheeseburger in her hands (with the veges from the burger taken out because well.. ew vege. I can tolerate lettuce tho). 
We definitely balance each other out hahaha. 

Irfan catching me in action with my camera haha. 


We watched Child 44 and I thought the storyline was good but God, the movie was really long that it felt super draggy in some scenes. 
The main actor looked so familiar to me that I had to Google him when I got home and turns out he was Tuck in This Means War ! Hahaha. 

I miss Irfan already, but what's new. I miss him the second I say goodbye to him haha. I miss talking to him and laughing at his (lame) jokes and having silly harmless arguments about little things like the difference between 'multiple' and 'a couple'. We could be doing nothing and it's still going to be a good time. 

Oh and quick shoutout to Nadia for quoting me on Instagram ! It was a nice surprise to see that something I wrote was worth uploading on your feed. Hahaha. 
If anyone's wondering which blog post that came from, it's this one : Money Makin' Money Savin'



I also can't wait to share with you guys my March - April favourites ! I've been loving quite a few items lately (beauty wise, especially) so keep an eye out for that. 
Post should be up before April ends. Have a good week ahead ! x

  4. Izza can you help me, I nak beli duck scarves but I'm torn between toffee pudding, hazelnut latte and caramel latte. I like alllll. How did you end up with toffee pudding eh? Its so hard tau to choose. And how did you see the difference? I hate seeing the colors on the website, lain gila hm.

    1. Hi ! What I did to see the real colours was I looked at the #duckscarves hashtags and Vivy's Instagram a lot. I chose Toffee Pudding because I fell in love with the colour and Vivy wore it so much in her ootds dulu (see the photos here : http://www.izzaatirah.com/2014/11/busy-bee.html).

      I know how you feel ! Colours on the website lain gila. And yeah it's a really tough decision but think of what would look best with your skin tone and which goes more with your clothes :) If it helps you could look through my Instagram / blog posts to see the toffee pudding colour, Hazelnut Latte is more of a nude more than brown and caramel crunch is like a darker shade of brown, kind of like the colour of famous amos cookies haha.

  6. izza are you going to join the duck flatlay challenge? can you give me some tips how to take a flatlay? i really want to give it a try but im soooo bad at taking pictures hahah

    1. Haha noo I don't think so, I want to but I doubt I could win since I won the reposting contest already, so I'm sure they wanna give a chance. But take inspiration from Vivy ! Her flatlays are the bomb. Just make sure everything goes well together and you take photos with natural lighting (sunlight from the windows or etc), don't put too much stuff in one flatlay and remember you don't always have to arrange them straight to look nice, experiment with it and have fun :)

  7. Izza do you know how to earn reward points on FV? Is it gonna work if I create a new account?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh you need to buy things from FV to get reward points. If you buy something from 80 ringgit, you get 80 points. That's how it works. I don't get what you mean by is it gonna work if you create a new account though.. It should work with everyone who has an account (?)

    1. Maximum a few days, don't worry. Fashion Valet is very professional, if your status is still the same by tomorrow afternoon, you should email them or give them a call :)

    2. After you ordered yours dulu, you email apa for payment proof? The receipt or the screenshot or what? Haha I'm just worried in case my payment tak dapat ke :/ maybe im just a little excited kot hehe

    3. I didn't email them cause I paid via online banking. Haha should be fine la, their customer service is good.

  14. Izza did vivy before this is a chinese related sort of? I know this dont sound relavent to you but seems like you know her long time ago. Bcs I see like she does not go through her confinement time like wearing jeans and go out just after a week of giving birth. Hahaha call me lame but a pure malay women wont act like that I mean at least after a month of giving birth

    ReplyDelete

    1. Her parents are both Malay but I think she has mixed ancestors somewhere (probably on her mum's side). Here's the thing about confinement, it's mostly tradition. The purpose of confinement is to let the woman rest and recuperate after giving birth. I think it's fine if we don't follow the 'pantang' procedure 100% sebab most of it is adat in the first place. It doesn't matter if you're pure malay or half malay or anything, ada je yang follow the pantang 100%, and ada je yang still buat the pantang but only with what she's comfortable with. I've heard of pantang rules that are ridiculous like 'sleeping separately in different beds with the husband' and 'shouldn't bathe right after delivery', which completely contradicts to what Islam wants us to do itself. Islam teaches us to keep ourselves and our surroundings clean at all times, and Islam teaches us to be there for our spouses and to avoid separation, so how is sleeping in another bed going to help. I'm not anti-pantang, but I believe that a woman can do and not do whatever she's comfortable / uncomfortable with. In the end, your health comes from Allah anyway, going out or wearing jeans a week after delivery isn't going to affect her unless Allah wills it. Bukan about pure malay ke tak.

  17. Hi izza I really like how you pakai balik the same outfit. And out of all the sudu girls I feel like you're the only one who does that???? Like the others ada repeat but it's not the exact outfit yknow? And I feel like I'm close to you in some way from reading your blog???? I baru teringat that I pernah nampak you during Ramadhan last year kat KLGCC, I berbuka situ and you were 2 tables in front of me and I remember from your newer posts you said you have RBF, you really meant it like damn girl garang nye muka you but you were pretty and time tu you tak pakai tudung lagi and believe me, I totally zoomed the hell out of my phone camera to sneak a pic of you and send to my friend. Haha. Anyways, I nak tanya, where you beli your tudung? Online and offline. I know you buy duck and poplook but you ada any cheaper alternatives tak but still nice materials? I nak pakai tudung soon so now looking for nice ones that I might wear. And also, you tahu tak apa beza tudung bidang 40", 45" and so on? And also, you pakai tudung ikut style siapa? I rasa you je pakai tudung nice sebab cover dada and also belakang (judging from what I see in your photos), and since you tak buat youtube tutorial I nak tahu you follow from who mana tahu orang tu ada buat tutorial ke kan? Hehe sorry I talked a lot. I tak nak send a lot of comments so I think better if I gather semua and tanya all at once haha have a nice day izza and Ramadhan Kareem :)

    1. Hi ! Hahaha thank you. Nah all of them repeat outfits too, it's just that they can change it up a lot more cause they don't have a certain colour scheme that they like to wear like mine is neutral colours so that's all I wear but everyone else pretty much likes wearing colours other than that too so that's why my outfits are all the same hahaha. It's good you feel close to me ! That's what I want people who read my blog to feel, like we're all friends here who help each other out and be open about things yknow. And ala why didn't you come up to me and say hii !! Hahaha omg if you datang je dekat i, we could have taken a picture together !! Tak payah nak zoom like crazy for your friend also hahaha.

      As for tudung, I have a lot from @jetaimeshalws on Instagram. They're chiffon and they're good quality, around 20 something per piece. Also, if you go to tesco or anything ada macam kedai tudung by the side ke apa, just go in and look at the tudungs and feel the materials. I personally like the pashmina kind, and I have a black one that I bought for 10 ringgit and it's my most worn tudung when I go to classes. So happy and excited for you that you want to start wearing tudung !! <3

      I'm not sure about the 'bidang' tho ! I think the bigger the number, the bigger the size but don't quote me on that I might be telling you nonsense. I'm not sure who I ikut specifically.. Haha I know quite a number of people who pakai tudung and I take inspiration little by little from all of them, but once I start wearing I think I sort of developed my own style. Mula mula je you feel like you need to follow how people wear it but once you've found what you're comfortable with, that's your own style :) And not all the time I pakai cover dada (which should change !) but if my tudung tak cover dada I make sure my top is loose. As for belakang, I either make sure my pants are too tight or my baju is loose that it covers.

      Haha it's okay, I appreciate you taking the time to write to me ! You have a nice day too, salam Ramadan ! xx
