Random Facts + Liebster Award

Liebster Award blog
Ok, here it is. It took me long to post this as I was hesitating that nobody really wants to know 🙂 But it’s a nice feeling being thought by a fellow blogger and got nominated for Liebster award. Besides, it’s fun to answer them. I hope you will read through it.
But I will also show photos of how my day went yesterday with the boys. Had awesome time at the mall, eating Asian food and ice cream. I guess I have all the excuses to eat ice cream these days since everyday is a scorcher. I wore a white frill top from my favourite Atmos&Here and stripes shorts. Got to use my new Givenchy Antigona bag too.
