Quiet Times – Dido

Ask me where I go tonight I go back to today last year.
Me and you had to make each other happier, now there’s hope with everything.

Its hard enough to feel the world as it is and hold on anything.
Without these quiet times coming round here.

I’m gonna have to run away, I’m sure that I belong some other place.
I’ve seen another side of all I’ve seen it keeps me wondering where my family is.

It’s hard enough to see the world as it is, and hold on anything.
Without these quiet times coming round here.

Now I miss you…
Now I want you…
But I can’t have you…
Even when you’re here…

Suppose I have to take you with me, broken mind I’d rather leave you here.
To forget everything you’ve seen and known erase every idea.

And you walk up in the street, and hold my hand and smile.
Well, I won’t be taken in, cus I know how it turns out.
And it takes me back to these quiet times coming round here.

Now I miss you…
Now I want you…
You’re not coming back…
And I need you…
But I can’t have you…
Even when you’re here…

Now I miss you…
Now I want you…
You’re not coming back…
And I need you…
But I can’t have you…
Even when you’re here…

Xin chào các bạn

Đây là post về fashion thứ 3 trong năm 2017 của mình. Lần này TV lại tiếp tục cổ suý phong trào vintage với đầm sơ mi màu xanh navy, nón vành rộng và túi mây nhỏ nhỏ xinh xinh. Đầm này nguyên thuỷ không có dây nịt thắt ngang eo, có thể mặc kiểu dáng suôn rộng thẳng xuống, nhưng TV thấy là có chiếc dây nịt thắt ngang nhìn sẽ đẹp hơn, có điểm nhấn và nhất là nhìn eo được nhỏ hơn. Các bạn có trao đổi thêm gì thì comment bên dưới cho TV nhé.

How much is too much? [Fashion post]

fashion post

fashion post

[Tiếng Việt bên dưới]

Hello guys

It’s Sunday again. And as of my commitment, this is the second fashion post after the last one.

In this post, I am wearing a pink off-shoulder dress, a burgundy hat, flat sandal and a little rattan bag. I think it brings up some sort of both vintage and countryside flavor there. Probably I’ve always been loving vintage and anything countryside though, which kinda makes me left out of this too vibrant city. I’m just kidding. 🙂

I dressed up this one to see my ex-colleagues in a café, and it didn’t go out of any of my expectations; I’d got teased about how I looked. They said it was “too much”. I would expect that, so totally felt no offense. And also, we gangs actually never give kind comments on each other. You know what I mean, when it comes closer, insulting and sarcasm have become an important part of the friendship.

But then, how much is too much? (Question)

(And my answer is) As long as you like it. You’ll just not get enough from it.

I have passed the time when I easily get embarrassed because of some sort of undesirable comments, just because now I know where I am, who I am and what I am doing… As long as I am not disturbing or violating anyone’s privacy or even eyesight… (I hope not lol😅). I’m also aware of different opinions. One or two or three comments don’t represent everything, it’s just personal idea… Even it’s good comments, I don’t have much trust… As long as I know who I am, I won’t necessarily need being flattered or brought down… As long as I know I’m OK, it means I’m OK; if I feel it’s not OK, it’s not OK.

Cheers,

Truc Vien

Hello mọi người,

Hình fashion hôm nay TV đóng vai bánh bèo nữ tính nhé. Lâu lắm rồi mới mặc màu hường thuỳ mị thế này, lại còn off-shoulder nữa tạo vẻ hiền dịu nữ tính hết chỗ chê.

Lúc phối màu thì có sẵn cái nón vành màu đỏ burgundy, TV thấy khá hợp ý. Ngồi nghĩ thêm một hồi nữa thì quyết định nàng đầm trễ vai và nón rộng vành này sẽ đi với em túi mây be bé, tạo một vintage look luôn. Về giày thì TV phân vân giữ giày sandal bệt và một đôi high heel. Cuối cùng chọn đôi sandal thấp này vì thấy nó casual hơn, sẽ mang đến cho look này cảm giác bình dân nhẹ nhàng hợp với kiểu countryside hơn.

Các bạn có ý kiến gì thì comment bên dưới cho TV nhé.

I go simple [Fashion post]

[Tiếng Việt bên dưới]

Hi guys,

Its been ages since my last fashion post I guess… I’ve recently committed to myself that I’ll make a weekly fashion post, every Sunday. I’m just gonna try to stick to this…

I think I’ve been trying to change my spontaneous personality into something more consistent. I’ve been experiencing that sort of spontaneity half of my life and deep inside I start feeling bored about it… I hope that this boredom can hike me up in a way.

Anyway, either it’s hiking me up or not, I’ll stick to a Sunday fashion post as my small step. I have experienced how well these small steps go and build up into something bigger. Well, even though sometimes it takes ages for me meanwhile it would take people only months lol. At least there is some movement ehem. *sweat*

Regarding the photos, I’ve gone simpler than any time in my blogging life. A loose white shirt + jeans + high heels and a neutral bag were already able to make me good to go. Ah, I wouldn’t forget a messy hairstyle which is my all-time fave which I believed can give me an effortless look *sweat*. Meanwhile I’m actually looking forward to managing my messy hair better than this lol.

Hope you guys enjoy the photos. Tell me what in your mind if any.

Best,

Truc Vien

Xin chào mọi người,

Dạo gần đây TV nghĩ là mình cần viết đều đặn hơn, làm gì thì đâu ra đó ra ngô ra khoai một chút. Cho nên sắp tới TV định hướng mỗi tuần sẽ có 1 bài blog về thời trang vào mỗi Chủ Nhật. Hi vọng sẽ được các bạn ủng hộ.

Bài viết lần này là sự trở lại của bài thời trang sau vài tháng vắng bóng và mải mê viết về chuyện yêu đương *cười nhăn răng*.

Về outfit kì này thì nói chung là tuổi tác càng “cao” mặc đồ càng giản dị đi. Ngoài ra TV còn thích mặc đồ rộng rộng thoải mái nữa, đặc biệt là trong thời tiết nắng nóng quá cỡ hiện nay tại SG 😅. Áo sơ mi trắng + quần jeans hình như ít khi nào bị lỗi mốt, TV thấy khá dễ kết hợp. Áo sơ mi rộng còn thường sẽ mang đến một cảm giác “effortless” cho người mặc nữa. TV đang dự tính sẽ tìm mua/tự may thêm vài áo sơ mi vải mềm hơn nữa để mặc cho mát trong mùa này. Các bạn nhớ theo dõi các bài thời trang tiếp theo của mình nhé.

Nếu có comment gì các bạn để lại cho TV bên dưới nhé.

My challenge – Day 6

Hey guys,

So I skipped one day yesterday of the challenge. Gonna make it up tomoro for a full 7-day challenge 😅. Its never easy to make something become a daily habit. We would get thousands of reasons to refuse doing that some day 😔. Today Im going more basic with just a blouse and black denim pair. Ive got bad hair day today actually. Gonna try out the egg yolk tip my friend Andy gave me the other day to see how its gonna work. After that maybe I will have another challenge called oneweektips. Oh no, cannot be. I actually think of hairstyles challenge. One week 7 styles.

Ok wont keep you guys here too long, here is my OOTD. Hope you enjoy.

One week challenge – Day 5

Hi guys

Its my day 5 of my one week photo blogging challenge (OOTD). Today is jumpsuit and offshoulder top. Well, off shoulder top is still so hot till even now.

I shot these photos late afternoon today cos I had to find out how to copy photos from my iPhone to laptop. Hmm. Im defenitely no a tech person at all. Took me 2-3 hours to sink in that until my friend Andy the Savior randomly came online and rescued. What a good fate! Lovely life!

Hope you guys enjoy the photos. Ah, I made a short upclose video of my makeup as well. I tried new tips of makeup recently and found it works. These days are my best makeup days actually. The looks I created deliberately to be soft, not too much, I think it would be great for a dating session, since I know lots of men dont like much makeup on their partner.

My challenge

Hi guys

I have to confess that im a lazy girl at heart. I was really excited with every kinds of new projects at first and very often, I ended up dropping them halfway. I hate that. So I decided to have some mini-er projects for myself and force me to do every day. I learn that I shouldnot go with those projects which I can forsee Im not going to handle very well. I guess this one gonna be a good and easy to handle one for me: One-week photo blogging challenge. Ive done this for 3 days. Really wanna keep it. Hope you guys enjoy.

Day3: copying style from Blair Waldorf of Gossip Girl. An effortless look which I really love. Lately Im really obsessed with effortless style.

1st half of 2016 – A look back

So, we’ve officially moved to the 2nd half of 2016. I can’t even remember how I got through the 1st half, anyway, I’m not gonna try to remember since kind of believing I did it fine, and I have lost the interest to look back what  was done lols. Anyway, I guess I saved something, these fashion photos I’ve started re-blogging since last May. Today I would like to take a look back on those.

Prejudice

I heard that in the Bible, there is a line to the effect that if we want to reach Heaven, our souls should be like children’s ones.

A child’s soul. Innocent and carefree.

In fact, a lot of us just cannot have our souls that purified. We have so much judgement and prejudice deep within… We see people and the world through filters of prejudices. Our brains keep working constantly to label those prejudices on someone or something we met. Most of us would be proud that those labels should be right, just as how it was right… And never think twice… We don’t know that we have been so wrong. Things change, people do change, the whole universe change. Even a cell, the cell of the one minute later is one totally different from the one of the previous minute… Since the elements inside it do move which caused changes! Not to mention a whole human, a whole city, country or a whole race. Why must we need to label, then treating each others unfairly…? Labeling someone bad, we treat them badly. Labeling someone good, we give them love, respect and preference. For case 1, how many of us have done a poor judgement on people and regretted afterwards…? And have anyone realized that labeling don’t work all the time…? For case 2, have we ever treated someone so well that later on we realized they just don’t deserve any bit of our love, our respect? Prejudice is always dangerous. It does hurt ourselves and other people.

Lately I’ve tried my best to stay away from personal judgement and often take note to myself that being biased can just make us partially blind. However, unfortunately, prejudice is always way easier than a thorough investigation and compassion practice. Since it’s just right there to grab.

OK, too much of the headache things already, just want to share with you guys some photo-shoot throwback made in 2014, when I was still young and pretty and silly. Hehe. I guess next post I’m writing about traveling instead…

Healthy living

I have started living slowlier for a few months so far. Particularly, I quit work and working as a freelancer now, working on literally WHATEVER I LIKE, leisurely, and of course, I do blogging. Since then, I’ve got more time to read books, research on the subjects that I was dying to know, pay attentions to family members, friends, relationship as well as support them whenever they need my help, and last but not least, I’ve got some time to THINK. Consequently, the world seems slowlier than ever. We “sip” each other bit by bit. And these sips cannot be more interesting. I see the world, I see myself, to some certain level, which was hard to see when I was working my ass off at the office and come home damn late just to get the rest of the day done and to start another nasty morning hating getting back to work. Now I enjoy getting around Ho Chi Minh City on a bus or Uber/Grab taxi, seeing things on the road side with my eyes wide-open and having no fear of bike accidents, my mind is much free to wander, reckon. (I really wish that public transportation will soon be more popularly used in Vietnam, currently, lots of people stick to personal vehicle.) I’ve also got to walk more, and I do enjoy walking between to bus stations. I never know walking could be this comfy and regret that I took too long to realize bus is a very good option to travel around Sai Gon. Getting by  bus may cause some passivity and take a bit longer time, however, I don’t really mind, since I am the Queen of Time right now. OK I was far away from the healthy living topic. Thanks to the slow living, I have my brain “rested while working”, meaning letting it heading to a deeper level of everything (working-without rushing too much while seeing just the surface of problems like it did before), meanwhile it takes more time to rest thanks to our slowly lifestyle, I’ve actually felt so relaxed. And stress equals almost zero. Bye bye to stress and nightmares. We all know how stress is harmful to our physical body as well as our mind right? Accept it or not, we only need a happy life at the end of the day. Don’t believe that we just need to be happy, not rich or well-recognized or high social position? Watch this TED talk here about a longest study on happiness, at the old age, people don’t find that fame, hardworking-ness or wealth important, it’s happiness which needs to be considered as a top life goal. And the talk also reveals how to achieve happiness and healthier status (transcript here).

Do you want to slow down to achieve happier and healthier life?

Minimalism

It’s raining here, making everything so bleak here… My mind just flashed the friend who just went through her Dad’s funeral in my last post, she must be feeling so depressed…

Well, let’s change to what I intend to write about today. I actually had another OOTD photo shoot this morning. I quite like it then picked up to 20 photos,that is a lot more than anytime, since its too many, I’m still in the process of editing them, I don’t think I can make it today. Also, I want to have diversified topics for my posts, not just fashion shoot, so today I’d like to upload this post of Minimalism which I came across and collected yesterday, coincidentally that I pumped into 02 articles about this topic last night, one about fine art and one about fashion. Let’s scroll down to enjoy the photos.

P/S: To those who are not familiar, here is a very short definition of minimalism I’ve got from Google:

In the visual arts and music, minimalism is a style that uses pared-down design elements. 

A minimalist is one who practices minimalism in life/music/art…

My quick thought about minimalism: I’d rather live as a minimalist to avoid too much noise, chaos out there in the world. But in terms of fashion, I personally think it’s plain to not put onto our outfits any accessories (yup, because I’m kinda accessories addict) although these pictures down there look quite good.

What do you think?
