Dots and Hearts 😍

Everyday is a heart day. We don't need a special day for that. That's the official excuse of someone who didn't find the time to blog before the big hearts day! 🙄

Totally meant to do the shoot earlier but I was too bitter for V-day alas, life happened! I rarely go to this mall but it was fun discovering this mini theme park when we were doing our special Retropop classes for gym membership promotions a few weekends ago. The best thing about this SM By the Bay is, there's no entrance fee! I did see a love lock section somewhere here too so it's quite a place for lovers - if that's your thing. 😛

Anyway, not only do I have a date reco for you but also a cute date outfit in this Zaful number. The frills, the dots and hearts? It's just impossible not to 😍 in this set. This post may be a little late for V-Day but it's still the cutest summer matching set you'll ever have. Right? And if you fancy getting a pair, check it out in the link below.

P.S. All styling are by yours truly. This post was made in collaboration with Zaful. You may use ZafulChen to have additional 10%-20% off. :)

TrioThursdays: Trail Blazer

One night when I entered the gym and the sight of my crush greeted me in one of those arm machines, I still remember how his eyes were fixated in one item of clothing that’s hanging in my gym bag – my glen plaid blazer at work. Is it just me (haha!) but it’s as if I can already read his thought bubble about me “Oh, she’s that power woman at work.”

Okay, so maybe I’m just willing for him to think that way because unfortunately he still hasn’t talked to me (but I’m positive he will VERY SOON, haha!) which means he has zero clue about what I do except for the fact that I teach a dance class in the gym. BUT, it’d be wrong for him not to think so especially for some big shot like him in the journalism world. :P  Because, inasmuch as you know you like me babbling about my crush, I’m gonna segue now to today’s topic – blazers and its power association.

As Vogue said, you don’t need a complete suit to channel power - just a good blazer. A good blazer can take you beyond the usual 9 to 5 of interviews and presentations to looking polished even in the happy hours. You could tell how I’m such a proponent in my earlier posts like here. And while you know that it’s not the first time I tackled this plaid blazer trend, I’m reiterating now how this is such a “buy now, wear forever” piece that should be in your closet specially that blazers will be a major trend this S/S 18. So for fresher ways to wear it, here are my three latest looks for today’s hashtag. Enjoy :)

Blazer: H&M; Top: Topshop; Shoes: Missguided
 Look #2: Plaid and Pinstripes

#TrioThursday: Polka Dot

Not really celebrating Chinese New Year but from where I am right now (blogging from Kuala Lumpur, you guys!) where the festivities have begun, you can just simply tell that this playful dress from Zaful is the best featured dress for today's hashtag. (Red and polka dot, right?)

This is one of my favorite maxis of the moment. Here are the three ways I've accessorized it so far.

Once again, apologies for the lack of posts. Just got back from a winter trip to the Fragrant Harbour and posting this quick update.

Here are all the looks from my recent escapade with the family. <3

#TrioThursday: Navy Blue and White

Warning: This post is a poor attempt to update this blog from an addled brain caused by a crazy traveling schedule that has just started today. Currently, blogging from my hotel room here in Jakarta for a business trip where I desperately tried to make the post in time for the hashtag's day but failed to do so. 

Some of the looks below are way back from 2016 but the point of this set is simple: this highlights how your navy and white items (breton striped top, a blazer or a ruched printed gingham top) can be accented with touch/es of red - even if it comes in the slightest form such as a lipstick shade. 💋

Will still try to come up with content in the coming week while being on another vacation (this time with family) but just in case it won't happen, you can always find me active in my social media. 😉

V-Day Promo Wishlist

As a single woman, I used to dread V-day and all its hullabaloo. But there came a time when you just stop caring about it and instead be happy for other things like what? Like the sales happening in my partner's sites. Haha! Here are my picks from Zaful, Rosegal and Gamiss that are surely guaranteed to make you look stylish - with or without a date this V-Day! *wink*

Zaful and its POLKA DOTS. I am loving this prints right now and some trendsetters feel the same too.

Rosegal and its YELLOW SWIMWEAR. Coz as previously mentioned in my post, yellow will be big this spring/ summer.

Gamiss and it's VINTAGE SUNNIES. Just refer to my previous post here. Now here are my picks.
