My hair colour is finally washed out enough to see the blue clearly and I’m really loving it. I think I keep gravitating towards blue cause it’s really flattering for my skin tone.
The awesome 20-something degree weather in Singapore didn’t last long which warrants some off-shoulder goodness. Gotta love the Laurie top from eightslate.

If you’ve been following the blog all these years, some of you might remember that I chopped off my waist-length locks back in 2010. Trust me when I say that I’ve been trying to grow it back but it becomes really unmanageable when it grows past the chin.
My hair would start acting out at that length, and curling at the ends. Blow-drying it doesn’t really help as the humidity would usually make my hair frizz by midday (if I’m lucky).
I was gifted the GlamPalm Hair Straightener by Hairloom as I’ve been complaining about my unruly hair and am I glad I did. Prior to using GlamPalm, I own about three other hair straighteners and I have the usual complaints about them – they take too long to heat up, snag my hair while straightening or just plain doesn’t work.
I honestly hate having to style my hair in the morning cause honestly, we could all use that five minutes of extra snooze. But the GlamPalm made it so easy for me to style my hair.
It comes with two hair clips that allows me to section my hair, and it has a pretty good grip so it’ll work well for those with thick hair too. The comb works really great in untangling the strands before I run my flat iron over it. Most of the time, I have to run my hair over with the flat iron several times before it straightens completely but I only need to do it once with the GlamPalm; cutting down my styling time and reducing heat damage to my hair as well.
Here’s to attempt number 234,263 at growing out my hair and I’m pretty confident that I’ll make it this time.
The GlamPalm Hair Straightener is available at Hairloom for a special price of $250 instead of $265! For those who are interested in knowing how you can learn to style your hair with the GlamPalm, I have a little something in store for you in March! Stay tuned.
It’s great to be back in the groove of blogging after a long time and even better when I get to wear stuff that I just bought. Nothing like the smell of new bags! *sniffs*
Also, new hair colour! I’ve been stuck with relatively normal colours for a while now and having a little colour back in my hair was a welcoming change. My stylist, Peter from Hairloom decided to give me a turquoise mixed in with a lovely silver and blue-black which will fade into a lighter colour.
I didn’t discover the awesomeness of dressy track pants until I was in Korea. I needed something to hide my bruises and was easy to slip on so this pair made of cotton drill (instead of jersey or terry cloth) was the perfect choice for me. Having pockets on womenswear is really hard to come by too so I wouldn’t pass up the chance to have a place to put my hands. #thestruggleisreal
I’ve been wanting a Prisma Marion bag from Alexander Wang for a long time but there were just too many hardware colours and materials to choose from; I finally settled on the Alexander Wang Prisma Marion Neoprene Bag which is mostly made of fabric and has black leather corners. Being the klutz that I am, I scratched my bag the first day I brought it out. Does anyone have any ideas or tips on removing those scratches? I’d love to hear them!
I don’t think I’ve ever taken photos of my work outfit…until now. That’s only because I have a talented intern to abuse while she’s still around (hello Leona!) but photos aside, it’s been a real pleasure working with a passionate and driven young girl like her so please check out her blog and YouTube channel.
I’m in love with these detachable collars. They go under my tops and dresses, giving them an instantly preppy look without making it unbearably hot.

Dead grass… dead grass everywhere! Singapore’s been experiencing a horrid dry spell that petrifies frogs (true story) and causes human beings to spontaneously combust (not true but likely to happen) and it’s been hard to dress up in this weather especially when the only colour in your wardrobe is black.
When that happens, chiffon and skirts are your best friends. Throw in some sunglasses and sunscreen for good measure.
Ever since I got my tiny Jason Wu Mini Miss Wu bag, I’ve been travelling light but sometimes you just need to bring along an iPad mini which doesn’t fit into a tiny bag. The Sophie Hulme Envelope Clutch is roomy compared to the Mini Miss Wu and can even fit my Fujifilm X100 camera. The best bit is its versatility; I can carry it as a clutch during dinners or attach the shoulder strap to wear as a cross-body bag during the day.
