Outfit Today — 31

Had another outfit shoot recently with Vivien, an old friend of mine.
Wearing the coolest shades from Indiesin
and a men's vintage blazer.

We walked around Dempsey Hill for quite a bit before we
found this beautiful house with mint green walls.
What a pretty colour.
Don't see it much in Singapore!

And excuse my tousled hair. It's not very flattering in these shots.
The truth is that I have very straight hair. And so no matter how much I curl them or
try to lock them down with hairspray they never lasts long!
So after I get my hair and make-up done at home
and by the time we get to the shoot location.. My hair goes down..
But the nicely taken photographs made up for it I think!

I can't get enough of quarter pants lately.
People might think it would make your legs look shorter,
but if paired with the right pair of shoes. It gives a sophisticated edge I believe!

And yup, I was crazy enough to wear a turtle neck in this
summery weather.

Unique shades right?
They are from Indiesin
I bought these quite some time back, but they still never fail to
make every outfit look better.

Photographs by Vivien Tan

It's been a while since I saw her! I'm glad this shoot gave us a chance to catch up a little.
Even grabbed a quick cup of iced teas and coffees after
from Jones at Dempsey which was incredibly refreshing after walking in the sun.

Happy New Year guys!

Rakuten Singapore — Online Shopping Time!

Sponsored Post

☆ Happy New Year ☆

The new year brings new pages and new chances,
including chances for you to give yourself an excuse to shop!
(Haha please excuse me)

And here is where I would like to introduce

Rakuten is mass online store that mainly imports
Japanese goods to global regions.

With courtesy of Nuffnang, I got do a little shopping on Rakuten.
And I haven't had so much fun shopping online I must say!
They seem to have everything!! Literally.

Look at the categories they have ↓↓ 

To be frank, personally I am not a big fan of online shopping.
I think I mentioned this on one of my recent posts,
I always become a little skeptical when it comes to shopping online.
But I really enjoyed my shopping experience on Rakuten!
本当に何でもあって楽しかった ♪

Here's to share with you what I got from Rakuten:

First I bought a pair of super cute socks from Happy Socks.
Oh I just love Happy Socks! Look at these playful colours and designs!

And I ended up inviting my sister on my shopping spree on Rakuten,
so together we decided to get this ↓↓

It's a Macaroon making kit!
Apparantly this Japanese kitchenware brand Lekue has a lot of stuff
designed and made easy to use!

I would say this was my most exciting buy!

I splurged a little on some skin care products.
Been wanting to try out the infamous snail masks!

I decided to buy some things for you guys as well!
Happiness should be shared right? Haha
I made these selections myself!
