Guest Post!!

Hello everyone! I am mongs from my thrifty closet. I'm a stay at home mom of two boys. I really enjoy blogging and it has been a great journey of discovering myself and getting to know wonderful people including Shia. Shia has a humorous and unpretentious style of writing, which I love. Thank you to Shia for allowing me to post at her blog today.
I live in Singapore, a cosmopolitan city on a tiny tropical island. I enjoy fashion, history, art, architecture, vintage, photography and design. My interests are sewing, refashioning and thrifting, so my blog centers around these things, mainly my personal style and how I try to be creative with my thrifty closet. Sometimes when I do outfit pictures, I like to bring my readers around my favorite parts of Singapore.
As a stay home mom, I try to be resourceful and frugal. So I wear mostly hand-me-down and thrifted clothes. Sometimes I refashion second hand clothes to suit my style.

this top was thrifted at $1 and refashioned into a dipped hem top
this necklace was refashioned from a Eiffel tower souvenir keychain
a thrifted Mila dress with a hand-me-down scarf bow.

Thank you very much for reading this post. And thank you Shia for your generosity and kindness! Have a nice day!

12 Things You Need for Successful Weight Loss

1) Get your head in the game! Weight loss doesn't happen without dedication.  You have to have the mindset to get it done.  I've said in the past that motivation for me is like a light switch ... when it's on it is ON.  Even though motivation is one of the key things you need ~ you also need patience, understanding, time, and willpower.  You have to make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. 2) Track your progress! Tracking keeps you honest to yourself.  Without tracking you can sabotage yourself into overeating.  For example, tell me EVERYTHING you ate on Friday off the top of your head, not so easy right?  Also, there are tons of apps out there that you can quickly track or you can do it the old fashion way of writing it down.  Find what works for you and do it daily.  Also, as a rule I normally track my whole day in the morning.  Breakfast, Lunch, Snack & Dinner.  This also keeps me in track.  I can budget out my day and make changes if things arise or when y…

It's Okay Thursday/Hello Monday #5

... to be so productive that you "forget" to blog!

... to have tire issues on April Fool's Day and have to preface every text with ... this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

... to buy 11 items from the dollar days area at Target in an effort to get organized.  {hmmmm ... maybe a good idea for a blog post.}

... to forget to finish this post!

Hello Monday#5 It is truly amazing how much better my makeup and hair look on the weekend. So if you have never tried Starbucks Via Iced Coffee - I highly recommend. So I just watched Into the Woods over the weekend.  Why did the music sound EXACTLY like Sweeney Todd? Seriously I even googled that sh!t and came up with nothing. Why is it on weekends I am all about managing my down time  like it was my last meal or something.  Um no, I cannot do XYZ,  that is a total lack of consideration to my weekend of staying at  home and doing nothing for 48 hours straight.  
How are you doing today?
