My First Hair Perm-and-Dye at X’Pect Studio

You know how to tell when a girl has just gone through a major breakup? She changes her hair. But oh no, it’s not just a normal cut-and-blow session at the salon. Instead, it’s a drastic do-whatever-you-think-looks-best-on-me kind of gamble with the most expensive stylist around. The worse the breakup, the worse the heartache and the more money she’s going to spend.

 

Anyhow, I suppose you can tell that I’ve had quite an OK romantic life seeing that my hair’s been all sleek and straight (read: boring) for as long as I can remember. Actually, it’s more of needing to save up than anything. I mean, I’d rather spend my hard-earned cash at Shu Uemura or on a lovely vacation at a Balinese villa. That said, you don’t always need a crisis to get your hair done!

 

I popped by X’Pect Studio one day after work to see what I could get out of a hair makeover. I was tired of my flat, limp hair and wanted something more voluminous and alive. My stylist for the day was Lee, who was very accommodating and gave me lots of options to consider. In the end, we decided upon a layered style with soft waves.

Maku Store Singapore X Laced Ivory: A Collaboration

 

DSC 8223new Maku Store Singapore X Laced Ivory: A Collaboration

 

Audrey Hepburn once said, “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says, ‘I’m possible!'” On the more literary side, Shakespeare himself expressed, “We know what we are, but know not what we may be.”

 

Today I’m very happy to let you all in on another piece of good news: I’m collaborating with Maku Store Singapore for the next few months (at least) as one of their preferred bloggers in Singapore! I never thought the day would come, when I would be able to partner up with fashion brands for Laced Ivory, and I’m just so thankful that all these have happened!

Say hello to my first fashion collaboration! A friend of mine, Camy, posted in a Facebook group to ask if any fashion bloggers wanted to collaborate, and I seized the chance. After all, fashion and style are all about having fun, getting to know people and letting your creative juices flow. So I jumped on the bandwagon.

Link Love: Life as a Blogger

 

Link Love October 2014 Combined copy 1024x1024 Link Love: Life as a Blogger

 

Many people assume that being a blogger is easy and pretty fun. Well, the first part isn’t all that true, especially since most bloggers do this as a sideline, and have full-time jobs like I do. The second part about blogging being fun, well, let’s just say that if we didn’t have the passion for it, we wouldn’t be doing it!

 

Today I’m featuring a few of my latest finds on the web. I love being a part of the blogging community, because I feel that somehow, bloggers do add some value to people’s lives! These 5 today have given me ideas on how I can make my own life more fun, and I hope they’ll inspire you too!

The Alice + Olivia FW 2014 Collection

 

Look 1 Custom 682x1024 The Alice + Olivia FW 2014 Collection

 

If you’re one who likes bold, contrasting colours, structured silhouettes and intricate detailing, you might want to check out the Alice + Olivia FW 2014 Collection, designed by Stacey Bendet. I popped by the store last week and caught sight of so many pieces I wished I could bag home.

 


 

Metallic is the new black, or so they say. The new collection prominently features butterfly prints and bohemian motifs, and is all about being bold enough to showcase the inner you that is subdued and mysterious. Glitter and sequins add dimensions where necessary, and the combinations of colours bring each piece to life. For the not-so-daring, there are also a few which are more prêt-à-porter. Check it out!

Workplace Essentials Vol. 001

I’ve always kind of wanted a home office. Or an office of my own where I call the shots. But the more I think about it, the more I can’t help but feel there’s a chance I might actually end up being depressed most of the time if it were true. I mean, not being able to hang out with people I like, my friends at work or just to meet new people with interesting personalities? That must be a hell lot of boring.

 

If you’re like me and you have a job, chances are you also have a workplace. These are my picks for the blog’s new series: Workplace Essentials! Everything featured in this series is stocked up in The Style Store so you can browse the entire catalogue to your heart’s content too. Of course, if you haven’t learnt by now, if you subscribe to the blog, you’ll get your free copy of my ebook on workplace styling.

 


350 Workplace Essentials Vol. 001


 

My favourite is the pair of Kate Spade Pave Stud Earrings. That green and that bling! What a great way to get people’s attention – and in a good way too!

 

What about you? What’s your favourite item in this list?
