Lookbook | That awesome jumpsuit


Okay let's do a quick time check: 26 October 2015, 10.30pm

Right now, I feel like I'm trying to complete a late assignment that's overdue real soon. Ever since I bought my new camera, I promised myself that I was going to do more lookbooks and really try to take every opportunity I have to vlog. I kind of see vlogging as a way for Jasper and I to remember the good times and reminisce as and when. ;)





Time Check: 30 October 2015, 11.04pm 

Post was incomplete the other day. Forgot what I ended up doing, but I have a strong feeling I went to the kitchen for some seaweed shaker fries takeout. Who could resist? I know this year hasn't end just yet, but just thinking about it makes me sad. I don't want it to end so quickly. It really has been quite a revelation this year. So many things has happened. I felt happiness, sadness, moodiness, negativity, fear, hope, positivity and gratitude... I feel like sharing and giving so much but it's like time has always caught up with me and eventually won the game of "whose done more?". 

I'll be doing more "check-ins" on my blog from now on, just because I think it's a great way to track what I've been up to, my reflections and just thoughts on certain things that pops up there and then. It's personal and hopefully we could connect better. (ET finger pointing with you) 

Also, I'm feel apologetic to let you guys know that there won't be a October Monthly Favorites on my Youtube channel. I promised myself that I would at least have a monthly favorites video, but I'm still trying out a couple of products so I'm pushing it back. But! There will be a sephora haul coming up!

Lookbook | Midi Skirt


Time Check: 25 October 2015, 9.07pm

Contrary to what I thought about October, it has passed amazingly quickly. Which, of course meant that I was surprised in a good way. Recently I realised that I'm the kind of person that would very much like to have a deadline to anything that matters. It just gives me something to look forward to, knowing there's an end to things rather than a open "deadline". So you can say I prefer a 'yes or no' question rather than a open-ended one. Just like when we were in school. I prefer to cut to the chase. 

This post is going to be a pretty long one I suspect. Just because I haven't been posting much here and I always like to have a quick catch-up on what's happening in my life at this point of time. So here goes... This month has been about mainly two thing: 1. Starting my shop 2. Choosing our future home 

Having a full-time job, I've just really been struggling to maintain my energy level when I get home to work on my online shop. And of course, progress has been slow and sometimes I tend to doubt myself if I could really do it. But Jasper would always remind me that it's okay to start slow but at least you're starting. So that's comforting and motivating. 

Today we went to choose the unit where our future home would be. It's a happy and sad thing because we got our second first choice. Did you get it? It meant it wasn't our first choice. But it's okay, home is where your heart is and anywhere is fine with Jasper. 

Okay, that's about it. 


I always find myself gravitating towards pretty skirts and heels over tops and when I went on to lulus.com.. no surprise there. Also, I'm absolutely in for the navy greens and blues so when I saw this midi skirt, I knew it belongs to my wardrobe. Well, part of the reason for being so sure about you is because the color compliments tan skin tone!


Part of what's fun about styling is you really get to understand your body better and know what fits and what doesn't through experimenting with different colors and cuts. Sometimes pieces seemed to look awkward on me but I know that it's all about proportion so I just winked it and try to pull them off!

Lookbook | Boyfriend Jeans Again


Contrary to the usual photos I posted both on my blog and my Instagram, I'm actually pretty smiley. I'm not sure why I'm picking this up and sharing it with you all but I just feel that we choose what we want others/the public to see when they see our photos on social media platforms. 

A public persona is one thing but the genuine personality that exudes from a person could be entirely different. I believe there's many sides of a person. A side that only shows around their family. A side that only your lover will see and perhaps another side of you would show up in front of your friends. 

Let's just take me for an example. Unlike my somewhat 'why you always look so unfriendly/unhappy/angst' face, I'm actually quite friendly and nice once you get to know me and talk to me. (i don't usually smile in my ootds cuz my cheeks will fly up the roof if i did. so pardon me kay.)

Okay, that's that for a little side talk. 


Did I already mention that I'm a serious repeat outfit offender? Okay, but now you know. I pulled out my boyfriend jeans again yesterday cuz it's easy to look 'cool' in them. (insert winking smiley)

It's been kind of a thing nowadays that Jasper and I would wake up mid-day, doll ourselves up and head out for brunch. (nothing fancy. could be just the usual $3.50 laksa) But I have to say we went to Rocky Master to try their laksa for $9.90. Erm, it's safe to say we're going back to our $3.50 next week. 

Then usually after brunch, we'd explore the area and take photos. Usually we really don't take that long to get a couple of nice shots before we continue to walk around. (we definitely trying to get out of our comfort zone to explore around for good lookbook spots)

LOOKBOOK | LACE GAME


Honestly, I didn't think I'd be this excited for this lookbook. This outfit was unexpected last Sunday. I was actually intending to was a floral dress which had become too cute for me now and I had to change out. 

I bought this lace top on the second floor of Bugis Street and I was battling with the lady (nicely) and with myself on whether I should buy this top. Why I would not buy this on usual days - 1. off-shoulder top  2. it has lace  3. i just didn't think i could pull it off. 

But of course, after I put it on, hmm~ not so bad after all!
