School's finally out (still left with finals tho) so yay I finally having some time to play dress up. This week's inspiration is from my insta feed and snapchat that is filled with Coachella. I can't fly to Cali for Coachella but since Singapore is summer all year long, it gave me a good reason to go bohemian with my dressing.
Love my outfit sooooo much!!! Since is a two piece, I can mix and match with my other clothes too :D
I've been to Christmas Wonderland at Gardens By The Bay twice last year and thrice this year. This place will always be my favourite to soak in some festive christmas vibes. It's the 4th day of Christmas so I guess I'm not that late to wish a Merry Christmas! :)
Visited the newly opened National Gallery Singapore during the week. Formerly the City Hall and Supreme Court buildings, the museum is housed in glorious classic european artitecture, which made the visit there felt like a time and space travel back to the nation's founding days.
Wore a fuzz free easy slip on black slit maxi from AllWouldEnvy which was a steal at 20% off on Black Friday :) The cut in neck details was absolutely flattering, the dress was so flowly it made me felt like dancing in it and the slit at the side added a subtle surprise as I moved :)
¡Hola! It's December so I'm back from the hiatus with more outfits posts since it's the hols yayyyy and I'll be heading out more to catch up with all my friends :)
For this getup, I stepped out of my comfort zone and gave the pigtails a try which added a smash of fun to the whole outfit :) The wide leg pant is from MotelRocks which was such a steal from ASOS at about 70% discount YAY plussssss is soooooo comfortable that I can sleep in it!!!
Ever since Summers started, I've been swarmed with work and ashamedly, neglecting this space.
I'm back (yay!) with some short updates on what I've been up to recently!
I recently joined Grana as Brand Ambassador for their Pop Up Store in Singapore! The job opening was like a god gifted opportunity as I was really really really suffering at my previous job plus I've always wanted to explore the fashion industry! "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life."
I've never felt such great content from a job before but this has got to be my Dream Job. This is exactly what I envisioned myself in when I graduate: Events and Fashion. Maybe is luck, maybe is destined but whatever it is, I am grateful for this opportunity.
So what is Grana?
At Grana, we make Wardrobe Essentials from the World's Best Fabric that could be purchased at an affordable price.
A very good example will be The Light Washed Skinny Japanese Denim on me which is only SGD55! Good things must share and I'm not saying this because I work for them!
Do drop by and feel the quality of our products yourself :) We are located at Working Capitol (1A Keong Saik Road) and will be here till 17th July! We also extended our visit in Singapore and will be saying hi at Orchard Central till 5th August!
You are beautiful. You need to stop being so concerned about how you look. You are afraid of stepping out of the house with spectacles on, without eye linear or without your colored lenses. Dressing up is like your social barrier, a delusion you created to look better than who you originally are. Do you really need to keep those guards that high? You need to stop looking at the ground, avoiding glances of others because you feel so insecure about yourself. Chin up and smile!
You are self-conscious. You are constantly afraid of what others might think of you, you often sink into the background because you feel that you are not "pretty" or "smart" enough. You are quiet in social situations because you struggle to get your point across.You often feel that your comments and inputs are useless and superficial. Yes, you might not be as knowledgeable as others but take it as an opportunity to learn. Don't just sink into your small corner and be oblivious and uninterested about what is going on. Don't dwell over all those blunders you made, take it as a lesson and not make them again.
You feel inadequate. You put yourself on comparison with others, with your peers, with the people you see on social media, every single damn day, every single minute and second. You see the good in them and used it as a way to reflect your flaws. You view yourself as worthless in contrast to people around. You just don't feel good enough. However, if you were to constantly compare your self worth with that of others, it will never be a winning game. Instead, you should be comparing who you are today to who you are yesterday. If you are better than who your younger self then you are improving and taking steps towards being a better you.
You are sensitive. Don't let words of others bring you down. You need to filter out comments that are worth remembering and not let negative ones affect you. Stop replaying those hurtful words in your mind, don't let others define who you are. Don't ever ever ever let anyone dull your sparkle!
My dear, just remember, you are not what you tell yourself late at night nor when you compare yourself with others. You see, the problem with you is that you let your insecurities eat you up. You fail to see the beauty in yourself, as yourself. You need to accept and love yourself. In case, you've forgotten, you have a lovely smile, a kind heart, a radiating and warm deposition that allows you to connect easily with others. You are a giver of good vibes, you bring joy to people around. You're such a blessing to people around but why can't you see how you are a blessing to yourself too.
You were the happiest when you are overseas, waking up everyday excited for new adventures. However, why did you lose all of that enthusiasm when you are back at home? Don't let days past. Get out and find gems around. Keep your curiosity and adventurous spirit burning. Make time out for your passion, for moments that your soul crave. Draw, sing, bake; make time for them.
Love yourself and be happy, pretty. It will get better but first, love yourself, get up and start fighting.
