On The Loose

Tuesday, 19 May 2015

picked out some outfits from the styletribute office after a meaningful in conversation session with miroslava duma and dion lee at lasalle singapore. i'm thankful to gain industry insights after each conversation with the designers and creative directors. i think what stood out the most was thakoon's. he said wanting to be famous is too boring, don't you want to have a skill too? this statement is extremely relevant to today's context where people are chasing fame on instagram – obsessing over daily content creating, taking photos, number of followers and observing your likes count by the minute. i've been there, and yes i'm guilty of such behaviour but at the same time i've been making an effort to not allow instagram to consume me. i mean really, where is this going?

side note / i feel like i've lost all control and intimacy between my followers when i allowed advertisements to be part of my instagram feed. this upsets me and i'm still figuring out how i should balance this. any advice?

three trips to bangkok this year, and each trip i never fail to enter A Laboratory, a store in chatuchak weekend market. they sell comme des garçon – esque apparels for both ladies and men. the quality of their clothes are very well made and constructed. this store is slowly filling up my wardrobe trip by trip. 

speaking of which, this love for drapes and shapeless silhouette started a couple of months back. being petite, i realise it's a norm or rather an unspoken rule to wear figure hugging clothes to better define our bodies. but well i'm going against it. i don't see why i have to follow these certain golden rules. i guess what i'm really trying to express is the fact that, i am comfortable in my own body and i do hope to inspire people to feel the same.

Yankee Candle Summer 2015

Tuesday, 12 May 2015

yankee candle's summer 2015 fragrance collection brings forth the summer spirit and fun that is synonymous with playful beach days and boardwalks adventures, in its classic jar and modern tumbler forms. the scent of beach holiday reminds me of the summer exuberance of fresh ocean air. i like the fact that each scent brings you to places you missed or have yet to experience. each bottle is like a mini time travel in a jar, not to mention prices are very affordable and are great as gifts :-)
