Lookbook | Black & White


Last weekend, despite the haze, Jasper and I went out to take the Monochrome Lookbook that's currently up on my Youtube channel. Watch the short clip below! 


Pictures below are some shots we took as and when we filmed. 

These looks are recreation of what I've wore previously. I'm a total criminal for repeating outfits. 
I wanna put in it a lookbook to sum up my usual black outfits so here it is.

JASPER'S BIRTHDAY / NEW HEELS


Time Check: 26 September 2015, 11.31pm

I have so much to update you guys on my blog. So many things are happening!

Let's start with Jasper's birthday that was last weekend. We went to Kushin Bo to have Japanese buffet. The highlight of the buffet was snow crab and we tried to eat as much as we can. I don't think I took any photos of the buffet but snippets will be up on a vlog soon!

In short, they have a good variety of food but we mostly hit on the snow crab (ate them with all ten fingers) and the sashimi. The chocolate was also the highlight of the dinner. 

Also, I purchased this Aldo laced-up heels on a whim. It costs $159. A little scream crying out from my wallet that day but I love it!

Lookbook | Black Dress Nude Heels


Time Check: 19th September 2015, 12.24pm

I looked backed at my blog archive for 2014 and realised I've had 82 entries last year and 19 this year. Bad girl Lydia. You can do better than that. Also, I realised how much I missed my long hair! So I've just been reminiscing on the past where I had "long and luscious" hair. Hahaha.


The laced-up heels was honestly, honestly a impulsive splurge on a Thursday night after work. I was battling between the black and the nude pair and decided to go with the nude cuz it made my legs look leaner.

Sunday Brunch


Time check: 14 September 2015, 6.56pm

Today was bad. Sinus hit like a movie star since morning until 3pm for me.

Anyways, last Sunday's babe plan to go to the beach was a no-go. And of course it's because of the haze. So we went for brunch instead at Jimmy Monday. Had the Berries Pancake, the food looked appealing but I'm not sure I'll go back just for the pancakes. Maybe for the all-day breakfast next time? 

Our usual no-smile shot just for me. Thanks babes.

Lookbook | Switching it up


Time Check: 12 September 2015, 7.17pm

I'm so glad to be back!! Buying the camera honestly makes me so motivated to use it to take photos and make videos. 

I feel like I matured a lot more over the past few months and I've realised a few things. 

The situation you put yourself in almost dictates how you feel about yourself. 

This is a little complicated to explain but there was a drastic difference about how I feel about myself before and after I changed my job. I was really negative about myself previously and I felt like nothing I planned to do is going to work out in the end. But now, it's the complete opposite. Which is a good thing! 

So bottom line, choose to be in a happy place and a position where you could feel good about yourself. 



Recently I've been really into pulling over a long vest no matter what I wear, be it a casual t-shirt or a spagetti top. It switches up the casual vibe to a more formal/office appropriate outfit. Okay, maybe the  slit on my skirt is a tad to high for office but I could still get away with it.  (hushh...)

Life #5


Hello!

As you can obviously tell from the photo, I'm really excited about my new camera! I finally bought a new camera! Yeah! I bought Samsung NX3300 from the IT show last week at Suntec City. Thanks to my babe, Rini, for telling me about the IT show. :)

The camera I used to have is NX3000 which Jasper bought for me as a birthday present. I was so sad when I spoilt it back in San Fran. But it's okay. All's good. I bought a replacement.

Just wanna give a little casual shoutout to this new baby.


For obvious reasons, I really love the NX3000 and now the NX3300. It's the best decision I've made to tell Jasper that I really wanna buy the NX3000 and he eventually bought it for me on my birthday.

In other news, I changed my job. That was another best made decision of 2015. I'm at a much happier place, which is all that matters. I also picked up sewing, which I consider a baby step towards starting my own business. 

Also, in other news, I'm planning to create new content for my Youtube channel which is really exciting. It's something I always see myself doing but yet, always putting off the idea somehow. But I'm really working on it this time. 

Consistency is always an issue for me when it comes to my blog and I really work on that as well. 

---

Wouldn't be this happy without the encouragement of Jasper who is with me every step of the way and my critic when I get too fickle about my decisions, my sister who is always my critic but wants me to be happy no matter what and Clarinda, who critics me gently if not, not at all. Muacks!
