DIY: Distressing your boyfriend jeans

You see, finding the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans is not an easy task, and I'm never one to spend a ton on ripped denim that I could easily destroy myself. lol. When it comes to boyfriend jeans, I still like them slim. Many come just a tad too baggy and aren't the best for showing off your shape. I have a pair of skinny fit in my drawer for some time now, the reason I'm not wearing it anymore because it was my Uni time's jeans. Whether the jeans got smaller or I'm the one who got fat. You got the idea. So, I've been in a so-called 'diet' programme for couple of months now, not a food diet in particular but it more to supplement consumption and in order to see my changes in term of the 'I'm-less-fat-than-before', I would like to try on my skinny fit jeans to see whether it still fit me!

Surprisingly the 25 size skinny fit jeans suits me again very well but since this old jeans look truly old, I wanted to do something different with it, and I realize they are perfect starter for creating my own boyfriend jeans. They are still fitted around the butt and thighs but loosen up just enough around knee and calves- perfect for a skinny fit for boyfriend jeans that still show off the goods. 

So grab that old pair of loose jeans hidden in your closet and give them a sweet little makeover with easy tutorial. 

First, try on your jeans to have an idea of what areas you would like to distress. If you would prefer to make a mark rather than simply eyeball where on the jeans you intend to distress, use chalk or a pen. 


Cut straight, horizontal slits over the areas you want to distress. The slits should be 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch from each other, which will make pulling out the blue threads even easier. 

Use the tweezers to pull the blue threads, but only in the areas you've cut. It's okay if you can't get them all, or if you have blue fuzz in certain areas. It's all even out in the wash-pun intended!
Do this until only the white horizontal threads are exposed. Continue to do this distressing anywhere else on the jeans that you like. And if you're feeling real spicy rip holes in the knees! But hey ladies, if you don't really want to exposed your skin like me, I have a better way to style the old jeans without showing off your skin. 

I used a very old white t-shirt and sew it under the jeans around the distressed areas. It's very easy.

Pull out the rest of your outfit and voila! You're ready to rock n' roll. 

I also include my video on how to distressed your boyfriend jeans. Enjoy!

Saving the best for the last-Me!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. B's nature of work leaves me with no choice but to be independent. His work schedule knows no weekends and public holiday. But a kaki jalan I am by nature and nurture,what if it's only me and Aulia'? bring it on! Nak keluar jugak! I thought  it was impossible at first but naaa, practice makes perfect, I am so used to it already, you'll be surprised of what I can do with only one hand. Haha The skills develop naturally. From folding stroller and do groceries shopping while pushing the cart and her stroller? I have done all that. But there are time I do need hands from strangers, and kudos to Malaysians, they're helpful. And I think this is the perfect bonding time because Aulia' is with her baby sitter during the weekdays. Her new doll with blinking eyes and annoying sound..  So there are times, I'd love to doll up, but now I have a plus one! How? I doll her up as well! luckily she's a daughter, dear God thanks

Carnaval Churrascaria

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. Last week we had an invitation from our boss for a departmental dinner.This is the third time I join in with the whole Renewable Energy team for official  makan-makan . So we had this dinner session at a weird place named Carnaval Churrascaria, (I still had a problem of pronouncing this restaurant's name) somewhere near to the Atria Mall in Damansara Jaya SS22, Petaling Jaya. Carnaval Churasscaria is one such Brazilian Restaurant, decked out with Brazilian national colour of yellow and green. It is a brazillian style where all the meats are grilled and the waiter come to each table with knives and skewered meat and slice it for us.. For non-MEAT lovers, you may opt for the non-meety buffet..they actually have rice, pasta, potatoes, salads and some seafood. For those who loves garlic bread, you should try their garlic bread which mixed with cheese..Two thumbs up!! yummy!  

Aulia' birthday party

Assalamualaikum wbt I am finally getting around to share few photos from Aulia's birthday party from a couple weeks ago. We had the greatest afternoon at my in-law's place with siblings, cousins and relatives celebrating our little girl turned TWO and Eid:) I think it's really fun to throw parties for our baby. I know she won't remember it, but it's her birthday and in my opinion, it's more about celebrating everyone in the family and we all made it! What a great year! I am so thankful my in-laws help me with last-minutes stuffs. Sunday morning was hectic! SILs had to pick up the cake and the boys spent the morning finishing off some of the decors (tied the banner together, arranging the furnitures, etc.). The tables, catering foods, fruits, candies and chocolate fountain were also delivered that morning. I took a few pics beforehand, but too busy with Aulia' to take any pics during the party. (My BIL manage to took pictures of the party. Pheww!).
