Adieu 2010 and greeting 2011 with a bang!

A way overdue post.

While there are more distressing and tear-jerking moments last 09 compare to last year, I still thank 2010 for bringing me a lot of realizations, lessons and
insights about life.

Did the bravest move by leaving home and work in a foreign country completely out of my comfort zone.
Ditched my hard-earned job and made the most difficult decision to leave my comfortable and good life and exchange it with something really different and unknown.
But im glad that I took this big step in my life. It somehow made me recognize how responsible and mature I can be living independently.

Im still besieged and overwhelmed with everything that’s going on.. im still anxious of the idea of what this path that I chose will bring.

But im ready whatever it is.. And nothing can stop me from finding my own true happiness.

My 2011 is gonna be fabulous and full of bliss. Im claiming it. 

I hope the real Santa would visit me tonight and grant me the gift I’ve been hoping for the whole year ‘round.

It’s my first time to be away from my family on Christmas. Sigh. And living on your own with no special someone to celebrate it with, makes life lonelier.. I won’t let myself dwell on these downbeat thoughts.. Christmas is just too joyful to pass up, besides I’m still thankful that I have handful of friends to celebrate the Christmas Eve with.

Anyhow, Merry Christmas everyone and God bless! 

Gossip Girls

I miss our fun get-togethers.
The endless stories and gossips about our lives and other people’s lives.
I miss how we share our dreams and aspirations.
On how to get the right guy or on how to be rich and fabulous.

In rare times that we ran out of stories,
I miss how we just bully each other without getting pissed and upset.
I miss the complements we throw at each other,
may it be our outfits, our new nail color or our new haircut.
On the other hand, I also miss how brutally honest we can be.

Inspite the distance, im still thankful to have them.
These are my girlfriends that I so dearly miss.
Hugs and kisses to you girlies.
<3 <3 <3

Black is the new pink.

Jayda was right, pink is was my color. From my high school days to my early working days, my closet would be dominated with nothing but pink. This color makes me happy and there’s a certain comfort
that I get when im wearing this shade.
that's until I met black.
I’ve never been more comfortable wearing black.
its like my refuge when Im having a bad day, my cushion when I feel plump, and my added confidence when I feel beautiful.
You can never go wrong with black, especially if it’s the lbd that were talking about. It can be mixed and matched with any other hues. It can make your face stand out and the most of all,
it can help you cover your flab. Fantastic.

I had fun joining Indarapatra's LBD challenge.
Thanks for the wonderful words Jayda. Lots of love.

And of course, joining the challenge wouldn’t be possible
without the people behind these pictures.

The photographer and the first lady.
Thanks a bunch, till our next photo shoot and ice cream spree. 

Steals and Bargains

If there’s one thing Singapore would never run out of,
it would be a good SALE.
Different brands from clothing to gadgets to home decors offer discounts all-year round. So If you’re eyeing for that particular suede shoes this month and your budget is a bit scarce.. just wait for the next month 
or two and it will definitely be on sale.

This month was a bit of a splurge. I almost spent my whole pay check shopping and wandering from one warehouse sale to another.
First was the Loreal and Maybelline warehouse sale at Expo last Nov 15-17.

Here are my grabs.

Nothing beats a good foundation so I just bought a couple of them so I can have variety to choose from.

Then we went to Zara Warehouse sale at Mcpherson Rd last Nov 25-27. Prices range from $5-49. All shoes were priced at $15. Really cheap!!

My steals?

Silver skirt that can be worn as top too. Black sandals for just $15 
(original price is $89.90). and a black boat-neck top. I also got a tester-pack perfume for $10 for him. <3

I was expecting to see bags but the sale was more on clothes and a bit of shoes. No fitting rooms provided so you have to really think of ways to fit the clothes without getting peeped on. 

And finally, the much awaited yearly IT Show in Singapore was held in Expo last Nov 25-28.
I got myself the pink camera i've have been lusting for the past weeks. Yey!! 

Oh, and the suede shoes that I mentioned earlier. Here it is.

Got if for $20. Harhar. :)

Bag Love

i soo love bags.

aside from diamonds,
shoes and bags are certainly girls second bestfriend.
We can never leave home without ‘em. A stylish bag can perk up the simplest outfit effortlessly.

Found these gorgeous bags from Bag Lady in
Bugis at a bargain 
and now, they're my new bffs. ;)
I never thought the first bag looks like an Alexa Mulberry bag until jayda
asked me to check this post from cherry blossom girl. J

Red Pucker

I just love women who can don a red lipstick without looking like a tramp. It can make you look classy, sophisticated and sexy instantly, with the right shade of course.
You must always check the best shade for your skin tone. There are varieties of reds available, from plum red, brown red, cherry red even the “Red” red. 
MAC, Bobbi Brown and Revlon are amongst the brands that has the best assortment of red lipsticks.
You can consult their crew to learn the right shade for your skin.

Me? I found my shade from MAC. Russian Red Matte.
Here it is.

I don’t know why many women are scared to try it on. Believe me, it can do wonders to your face and to your look.

Warning: Make sure to find the appropriate red that will suit you. You wouldn’t want your guy singing “im in love with a stripper” instead of “ms independent” right? :)
