Thrifty Saturday: 3 Easy Ways to Create Your Own Co-ords

PhotoGrid_1411823307303As aforementioned, I am currently obsessed with co-ords. The trend is still going strong and these matchy-matchy separates are ubiquitous in every major retailer’s shop and website.

DSC01041Happy Tuesday everyone! Yesterday was Mid-Autumn Festival, and as always, I never remembered to get mooncakes in advance. So Mr. D and I decided to do a last minute snowy mooncakes hunt.
