WHO WHAT WEAR: Zara dress and pumps, Celine Trapeze, Michael Kors watch

These film captures are oldies but goodies. I forgot all about them since taking them in JULY!! Seeing this dress hanging in my closet reminded me that I have not yet posted these. ūüôā

Can you guess that these pictures were taken at Marina Bay Sands?

I hope to come back and blog more frequently since I am back from my wedding and honeymoon!!

Tourists for a day



Photography by Nicholas Teo

WHO WHAT WEAR: Topshop stripe top, Zara skorts, Converse sneakers, Kanken Classic in Warm Yellow, Michael Kors Watch

How’s everyone’s week so far? It’s almost Friday so hang in there if you are having a crazy work week!

My awesome friends (our Maid of Honour and Best Man for our wedding) gifted Nic and I with an all access, all day pass to Gardens By The Bay. So we played tourists in our own country for a day and had all kinds of fun exploring the misty Cloud Forest which explains why I look like I’m bathing in mist or smoke in half the photos.

What I really loved about the day trip was visiting the Flower Dome. Flowers of every species and colour were beautifully laid out and the temperature inside the Dome was perfect. Perfect for the plants/flowers, perfect for me.

Hope you like the pictures. If you haven’t already visited Gardens By The Bay, you should really plan one! It’s a nice breather from city life!

the beautiful matrimony of S & S


Photos by Nicholas Teo

These¬†pictures sum up the glorious day when two of our good friends got married. It was a sweet and beautiful day graced with perfect weather with¬†beloved family & friends who love the couple¬†and it was surely Jesus who was present and very much in our midst that special evening as I could remember witnessing such a tangible presence of God’s love as they exchanged their vows and lit the unity candles.

I love that the wedding was an intimate affair with abba and I wish for the same for my upcoming wedding!

of stripes and staples

Photography by Nicholas Teo

Wearing: Zara striped tee, Exhibit skirt (also as seen here), Topshop ballerina flats, LV Speedy tote, Michael Kors Watch

Nic and I went for our first hotel viewing earlier last weekend and also checked out a¬†bridal studio and somewhere in between these appointments, we took advantage of the strong sunlight available and sneaked in a 5 minute shoot of my outfit.¬† As usual, I was wearing¬†my to-go outfit of stripes & staples…

I have¬†lost count of the number of striped tees, shirts and shorts hanging in my closet. This Zara striped cotton tee is the newest addition to the stripe family. I love that the fabric is thin enough to wear on a hot hot hot day (34deg Celcius!?!) in Singapore and warm enough for a movie date. Although it would have been fun to layer¬†a¬†floral¬†blazer to¬† this outfit, I’m thankful I didn’t¬†lest I¬†faint from the heatwave this June!

The Michael Kors watch is something I decided to treat myself to after lusting for it for so long. I love the gold bling against my fair skin. It’s a simple watch and quite a resistant one too because it endured quite a few hard knocks since I bought it last weekend. This should be my staple time-teller/accessory for now.

Ballerina flats has always been my choice of flat footwear especially when I’m running errands or when I’m too lazy to walk around in heels. I have 5 pairs on heavy rotation and they all look similar with the only difference between the material used (pig skin,¬†calfskin,¬†suede, satin etc). All 5 pairs have bows and they are all black. The other ballerina flats are leopard printed, red bow-ed, and I even have a nude colour-ed pair. I must take a picture of my ballerina flats lined up in a row and you’d see what I mean when I say these flats are a staple.

What I’m eyeing are these great alternative to ballerina flats in the form of¬†white flatforms by Gail Sorronda¬†and these Shakuhachi wedges seen here!

In mint condition

Wearing: H&M Mint Peplum Blouse, Zara leather skinny pants and heels, Topshop Arm Party

Remember my recent post on The Peplum? I managed to snag the H&M mint peplum top in my size after all! This is one way of wearing the peplum top…instead of wearing it with a pencil skirt which I had originally intended to, I decided to go with a pair of¬†waxed leather skinny pants.

Please excuse the craziness happening in the post with copious amounts of air kissing/ walking/ hair tossing and the likes. I was trigger happy hanging out in the sun (in leather pants! whooopie!) and just generally happy to not be holed up in office that day.

The achievement of the day was managing to coax Nicholas to let me shoot him and his customised Converse high cut sneakers. I’m so proud of him.¬†He¬†had sewn¬†on¬†a myriad of¬†brightly coloured threads at the¬†back of¬†his sneakers¬†and he has received so many compliments so far (see the black & white photo). Yay to more customisations!
