HEY HEY! So I’m back in Singapore! It doesn’t matter how long I’ve been away from home – once I plonk my ass on the couch in front of the TV, it’s really as if I’ve never left. It has been an interesting summer. I visited two places I’ve never been to before (Berlin & Göteborg), but unfortunately no pictures until I manage to extricate them from my now-defunct hard drive.

I packed surprisingly lean for this trip. Half of my suitcase was filled with things for friends and family and the other half with T-shirts and sweat shorts. There’s even a pair of trainers (!!!) which I ambitiously thought I’d put to use somehow. Seeing my pot belly below though, maybe I should really go out for a run or two.

Manage to get this dress from Topshop on sale. I absolutely abhor sale shopping. It’s not that I’m too snooty to score a discount. It’s just that whenever there is a “sale” sign anywhere in the shop, it seems to bring out the animalistic instinct in shoppers. Everyone assumes that they have free reign to throw whatever they want on the ground and rearrange whole sections entirely. I think I would have an easier time sorting through the belongings of a hoarder, than to find anything I want during a sale. Sale shopping is like a timed challenge to me: how many items can I find that I like before my patience and my sanity begin to frizzle?

My eyeliner even matched my bag that day – I had a pink eyeliner (maybelline hyper glossy liner in hot pink) on over my usual liner.

    Ugh that’s what I hate about sale shopping too. So messy especially at the Topshop in Chicago. Glad you found something nice though!

    I agree, messy sale racks are the worst! It looks like it paid off for you though, that dress looks lovely :)

    Aww thanks Mani!! I kinda regretted the purchase…. After I brought it home I realised that it absolutely reeked of BO!!! Whoever tried it on last must have really smelled. It took two whole cycles in the washing machine to get rid of it. :S

    I had to suck in my stomach so much when taking the pictures. Maybe it’s high time I look into shapewear… ;_;
