Not too sure if any one is still reading but this space has always given me good memories. Once in a while when I'm feeling nostalgic, I'll still look back at the entries to recall the good times. The past couple of months have been pretty crazy and am glad to finally be able to take a breather from work, to recharge before getting back. It's the third day of the Lunar New Year today and it has been going well so far. This occasion, has been as usual – quiet, simple but somehow better this year to know I'm spending it with Dean, together with my family :) 

Happy new year guys x

Police – My game, My rules

 photo 0106141DSC04008.jpg

 
Eyewear to me is probably one of the most practical accessory one could carry. All thanks to Police eyewear, I had a brand new pair of shades (seen above) to bring to Korea just two weeks ago and it came in handy for the Sunny and cooling weather there!

A couple of weeks earlier on, I actually headed down to the office to take a look at the range of eyewear by Police and I was particularly interested in the above model (model S8299) which I'm sure you have seen it around – one of the most classic models of Police eyewear! You might have also seen it on posters around whereby it features Neymar, the international footballer and budding style icon and Police's classic blue shades! In case you are wondering who is Neymar, he's the new face of Police 2014 eyewear and he is the most talked about personality with Champions League and FIFA World Cup 2014. Neymar Jr’s partnership with Police marks the coming together of two of the biggest icons of the season.

I was delighted to know that I could bag home a pair of shades of my choice and that would definitely have to be the above model! Love the style, the shape and I had such a hard time deciding which colour I should get because it came in four absolutely gorgeous shades. Settled for the gold shade in the end because most of my accessories are gold in colour and I could definitely pair this pair of shades easily with most of my outfits. Additionally, I really like how sturdy this pair of shades is, given its lightweight. You might also be interested to know that it's made of metal and polarized, mirror lens!

Police is definitely a brand that speaks of street style with that slight hint of rebellion. Inspired by American “on the road” spirit, its brand personality is aggressive, non-conformist and even a little hedonistic. You will be surprised to know that Police has created in time a wide-ranging lifestyle concept over the years, which now includes perfumes, watches, jewellery, small leather goods and apparel – Police eyewear is known to be a fashion statement accessory for many!



More pictures of this classic pair of shades.

AMPed x #Digitalfashionweek

Back to do a thorough update on #Digitalfashionweek!

As you know, Digital Fashion Week (DFW) was a collaboration between DFW Creative, youtube, google+ and Twitter to bring to us the latest fashion by local and international designers. Consumers were able to watch live action such as backstage, runway shows etc on the various social media platforms instantly just when the event was happening as well. It's an major partnership because this runway helped to raise profile of each city's home-grown designers via the convenient digital platforms, featuring collections of Spring/Summer (S/S) and Fall/Winter (F/W).

Was very privileged to be invited to attend one of the shows – a S/S collection by local designer, Pauline Ning, and witnessing top models strutting down the runway showcasing Pauline Ning's next season's collection. Have to say a big THANK YOU to AMPed for the invite! 

If you didn't know, AMPed is a phone application that you can easily download on your smartphone, allowing you to stream and download seamlessly on your mobile devices from a music library of millions of songs and get the latest music news and reviews on their website. What's amazing is that they have a mammoth repository of millions of songs available for you any time, from good'ol classics to the latest song you've ever heard! I've the application and I must say both the selection of songs and streaming speed so far, were pretty impressive. Furthermore, you get to get/win first-hand exclusive invites to music events and meet-and-greets with artists you love -  I've received tickets to Nelly Furtado's showcase previously (AMPed had Lady Gaga previously as well), read more about it here! Do you know AMPed is recently being featured as The Straits Times Digital Life  Editor’s Choice and they were compared amongst all other music apps (Spotify, Deezer, KKbox) and was picked as Editor’s choice?

 photo 0911131DSC03268.jpg

Anyway, you must be wondering how AMPed came into place with Digital Fashion Week. I was puzzled initially as well but later found out that AMPed is not just about songs streaming and download. Just as what its tagline says – AMPed is "more than music" and for this event, AMPed partnered with DFW 2013 and worked with the Music Director, Mei Wong, to introduce 13 runway playlist for the shows, each styled together to suit the respective designers' style, mood and collection. Ms Mei Wong actually put together a list of soundtracks – created by downloading the different styles of music on AMPed and mixed them in a set- no doubt a music director! These soundtracks are also available exclusively on AMPed and to those fashion funky peeps out there, you know where you can get the uniquely created runway soundtracks for your own needs. And by the way, Pauline Ning's runway show was entirely represented by AMPed soundtracks!  ;)

Calling to fashion and music lovers, here's an inspiring video put together by AMPed x DFW that you should not miss ;)

I have never thought a music application could do so much and AMPed definitely proved to be 'more than music'! I always think music plays a great part in our lives, even if one isn't a music lover. If you've noticed, music creates an entire atmosphere, fills the empty spaces and in fact, music is all around in us – think about house parties, cafes you dine in, retail shops in shopping malls, during photoshoots (I always like to play songs during shoots with the team! heh), in the car, at events and dinners, at spas and facials etc.. I only realised how important it is to add music to our lifestyles recently and with that said, AMPed could provide songs whenever, wherever you need them. ;)

Last but not least, If you are a member of the PREMIUM account of AMPed, which is called WhAMPed, you get to enjoy a special song identification feature that recognizes songs you play it, even when you sing or hum it!

AMPed is free but for music lovers, I definitely urge you to join AMPed as a premium member! You get to enjoy various exclusive features and services ;) Simply do an in-app upgrade under settings and for SingTel users, it's even easier for you – just charge it to your mobile bill by calling *247 (Turn on 3G/4G and  turn off WIFI when doing so).

Perks of this application that you should not miss!

I left immediately after for Topshop Afterparty at Knightsbridge Orchard and came back in the evening to catch Pauline Ning's S/S showcase together with my plus-one, Shi xian. She's helping me with the styling for Klarra and I thought it will be a good chance for us both to get some inspirations from the shows ;)

#DigitalFashionWeek x Topshop

Outfit & Necklace from Topshop, shoes from BCBGeneration by Vince Camuto, clutch(upcoming) from Klarra.

It's the Digital Fashion Week! As quoted from the website, "#DigitalFashionWeek is the world’s first shoppable live streaming fashion week. A joint partnership between DFW Creative, YouTube, Google+ and Twitter to bring the latest fashion to consumers in real time." And oh yes, Supermodel Naomi Campbell was here in town and she made her SEA runway debut yesterday at the Digital Fashion Week wearing designs from Zenchi! 

Today marks the second day of DFW and a handful of us were there to catch the Topshop Season's Runway Edit – featuring a series of their Fall/Winter designs. A big THANK YOU to Topshop and Divisioncom (especially to Teresa and the boss, Mr Douglas Khee) for arranging a fitting last week at Topshop Knightsbridge, making sure we will all be nicely dressed for today. Bagged home this lovely set of outfit (above) – put together by the absolutely stylish personal shopper Melanie and I can't tell you how much I love this set! A gorgeous F/W collection for sure and I left the event earlier on with another big bag of loot once again!

Alrighty, my eyelids are getting really heavyyyy… ending the post with a couple of photos and I'll be back for more again. Till the next, ciao ;D

Thank You, Miss Selfridge!

Went for a fitting last week and was introduced to a brand new collection by Miss Selfridge, inspired by Cosmo's Shelly Vella. Great thanks to Mei Ting from Miss Selfridge for picking out this dress for me and I love, love, love it! Absolutely exquisite and intricate beaded details and easily one of the most gorgeous pieces I've ever owned.

A lil on this exclusive collaboration between Miss Selfridge Yasmin Yusuf & Cosmopolitan's Fashion and Style Director Shelly Vella:
Inspired by Shelly Vella -  Cosmopolitan's Fashion and Style Director Shelly Vella's enchanting journey through India with Miss Selfridge's Yasmin Yusuf inspired this beautiful and bohemian 30-piece festival collection.  Feeling completely overwhelmed with ideas and inspiration from their travels, they imagined an exclusive collection that would bring together the beauty and texture of India in a wearable capsule range. Nine months later the collection was formed.  It's all about adding unique accents to ordinary pieces: the dress with the ruffled hem, the sequin-laced dress, the embroidered leather jacket, the embellished bag.  Sun bleached colours, delicate detailing and fluid lines make for timeless lust-have pieces.

Think I've put on a bit of weight – boohoo, but am happy to be owning one of the 30 exclusive designs and I can't tell you how much it has made my day! Thanks Miss Selfridge & Thanks Mei Ting for seeding me with this outfit! ;)

Vince Camuto Spring’13

SPONSORED POST

   photo 080413_MG_3645.jpg

Just a couple of weeks ago, Vel and I had a filming for Vince Camuto. You have probably seen this brand around because of its prominent locations at ION Orchard and Takashimaya Shopping Centre.

A little background before I go on. Vince Camuto is an American women's footwear/fashion label that recently came to Singapore and has its first outlet opened just last year. It's named after the its founder (yes, Vince Camuto) who also established the Vince Camuto Group, where he started his Vince Camuto line and acquired licenses of multiple international footwear labels. Not only does Vince Camuto carry their own exclusive line – Vince Camuto, they also hold the master license for Jessica Simpson and footwear licences from reputable labels such as BCBGeneration.

As they always say, heels are a girl's best friend. It is a ladies' heaven when you step into Vince Camuto because you will be absolutely spoilt for choices! I was overwhelmed by their extensive range of footwear and the gorgeous range of fashion accessories like handbags, jewelry and such. You will definitely love Vince Camuto's latest Spring Collection as much as I do. The collection is in bold, lovely and gorgeous hues,  which is exactly what we need to spruce up our wardrobe.

Vel and I will be sharing a video each, showcasing different themes and styles. Vel will be sharing on footwear styles for your 'dates' this Spring whereas I'll be sharing on styles to spice up your corporate look. Stay tuned to the video below because I'll be featuring four different shoe styles for you corporate ladies! ;)

TIME CHECK: 10AM
Preparation begun at 10am at bebe and we were very lucky to have one of the luxury Japanese make up brands - Lunasol as the makeup sponsor. My look for the day was corporate, so I had brown hues and red lippy. Love how red lipstick creates this confident, sophisticated look for almost anyone. ;)

GUESS Spring’13 Collection

SPONSORED POST

I believe most of us ladies enjoy dressing up for occasions and some of us enjoy shopping for clothes, some shoes, bags and of course the fashion jewellery/accessories. I suppose a handful of us spend most of our time shopping for apparels to ensure that we are in different outfits/styles (especially for office ladies) or most at least not in the same outfit everyday. Apart from the need to have various outfits, I personally think that it's equally important to get the right accessory – in this case, bags. I personally think that bags play a huge role in complementing our individual outfit/style and unlike apparels, the right bag can be absolutely versatile for you to match most of your daily outfits with!

I'm probably similar to some you ladies, am one who needs a bag, or at least a clutch/pouch – something to carry, every time when I'm out on the streets. And for some reasons, I tend to feel a lil handicapped if I don't have anything to carry with/on me. And because I do bring quite a bit of things along with me when I'm out which I do consider them as 'necessities' as well apart from basic necessities such as phone, wallet etc, bag is definitely an important accessory, at least for me ;)

Apart from its functional use, bags are also fashion accessories and help to complement/showcase your individual statement style, manifest your personal charm and image! And not sure if you can comprehend this, but when you are in a rush and you step out of the house quickly, only realizing that you holding an unmatched bag only when you're halfway on the roads will kill the outfit style you've been putting together all night, boo. So the key for us is to find the right bag and we'll be doing a lil shopping today. You might have already seen this #GUESStote circulating around and hope I'm not too late in sharing this! There will be a special treat for you ladies because at the end of the entry, YOU will stand a chance to:
- Bring home a brand new GUESS bag
- Have a one FULL PAGE feature as a GUESS model in a leading local fashion magazine with me :)

Before I start on the bags, here're some pictures I took during a meeting with the Guess Team at their gorgeous showroom (in their office) together with other bloggers, Qiuting, Sophie and Rachell ;)





Thank you Sally from GUESS, who organized a cozy and intimate afternoon tea session with us to introduce Guess Spring'13 Accessories Collection. You will love them!

Very excited to be featuring GUESS new accessory collection this Spring and you can expect to see a series of classic and playful accessories, accompanied with preppy hues, bold and fun colours!  Not just fashion bags for work, but you'll be treated with modern and chic designs for casual fridays or even sport weekends. As they say, It’s all about the mix of materials, soft volumes and metal details. Will be featuring 5 of my favourite bags from the collection below and to win a bag of your choice + a feature in a local fashion magazine, all you have to do is to GUESS which is my ultimate favourite design out of the 5 ;)

***

WILCOX MINI—–—–—–—–—–—–—–—–



Love that this is made of soft leather-like material and of course, it's gorgeous cognac (some sort similar to Camel Brown) shade which is absolutely versatile in my opinion. This shade can match up almost any outfit! Besides that, i've always been a fan for sling bags this size especially for travels or for a casual weekend out to the beach or park. You might have spotted this bag on my instagram/@beatricesays – carried this during filming in the wild for the Maybelline's Wild Cats styling VLOG ;)

***


WILCOX SATCHEL
—–—–—–—–—–—-


This is the similar to the Wilcox Mini featured above, just that it's in the Tote version. Made of soft leather-like materials too, this is probably one of the most effortlessly chic bags you could own. Love it that it's huge and we ladies can store countless of 'necessities' in it, and that it's available in this lovely camel brown shade too. Perfect one for complementing contemporary styles!

RUMI TOTE—–—–—–—–—–—–


Another tote that was love at first sight for me. ;) Always wanted to get a structured yet modern looking bag for work-out/ golf sessions but didn't chance upon any I've favoured until this! Adore the pure white shade and the contrasting studs which chic-up the bag, definitely modernized your sports outfits! Oh yes, it's made of a waterproof material too ;)

***


TISBURY TOTE
—–—–—–—–—–—–-



Who says handbags for work and events must be small and dainty? We could add a lil edginess, sophistication or a whole different character to the corporate look with the Tisbury Tote from Guess! Oversized and two-tone are the two highlights of this design and i'm in love with its python texture and the contrasting patent handles. You know you can store a whole lot of things in this bag ;)

TISBURY BOX SATCHEL —–—–—-—-



Classic design and you'll love the box-shape! It looks much smaller as compared to the tote above but you'll be surprised by how wide the width is especially with the box-shape design. Versatility is its middle name and definitely one which exudes classy-ness and elegance.

***

And now, the exciting part:
Bring home a brand new GUESS bag & Have a one FULL PAGE feature as a GUESS model in a leading local fashion magazine with me :)

Hollyhoque

 *Waves from Genting*

Am currently in Genting together with the ReelityTV's crew, bloggermates, a couple of readers and we will be here for the next 5 days. Probably the longest stay in Genting but this time we came here with a purpose and we will be filming a gameshow for Resort World Genting! Filming begins only tomorrow morning and I've a feeling that one of our challenges would be the thrilling rides. Not really a great fan of those rides especially the Free Fall Ride, but let's see how it goes tomorrow. ;)

Pardon to those who sent me an email, been having back-to-back events and haven't had time to sit down to do my emails. Will do so whenever I've time so please be patient with me ;))

When it comes to online shopping, it's no doubt who are the bigger players in the market. One such local brand is none other than Hollyhoque (pronounced as 'Holly-Hock') and I'm sure you are familiar with its name. I personally got to know of Hollyhoque a couple of years ago, and they are known for its sweet, feminine and casual style. They are very well-received, recognized amongst the teens/young adults and with a surge in popularity, they have also invested their hardwork and time in opening their first ever brick-and-motar store. Congratulations Hollyhoque ;)

Just last week, I paid a visit down to one of our most popular shopping districts – Far East Plaza, to specially check out Hollyhoque's fashion boutique. The entire boutique is designed in a whimsical theme, very cozy and spacious at well. The boutique houses an extensive range of in-house label designs and you can certainly expect to shop from a range of classic favourites, together with brand new designs that might not be even released online! As always, one great thing about shopping at brick-and-motar stores is that we customers get to have a feel of the pieces, and at the same time, having the option to try them on before making our purchases. Definitely help to minimize post purchase dissonance!  

 


They have an array of accessories available for sale, such as bags, necklaces, bracelets etc.


A collection of self-manufactured shoes to complete your outfits too. Guess which pair I took home? ;)


One of my favourite pumps ;)


Took home this pair of wedges, love the design and its platform! ;)


Another Hollyhoque dress that I bagged home. Love every thing about this effortless boho chic T-shirt dress, its prints, its design, its cut and it's currently one of my favourite dresses in the wardrobe. This piece is still in stores, and this design comes in a sleeveless style as well. Feel free to try it out at their boutique and grab it before it goes OOS ;)

Glad to see that our very own local fashion brand has taken its business to a whole new level, creating an even more wholesome experience for their customers. Do support them and check out their store for more exclusive and upcoming designs ;)

To all readers,  just quote my name/blog to any of our staff when making payment and you are entitled to 10% discount store-wide at the boutique only.  Valid til 4th December. Happy shopping ladies!

Some random updates on the go.


Ethan's family just got another new pup, a pure goldie named Carefree and look at how cute he is! For some reasons, Carefree and Trigger are always fighting and the little one is extremely aggressive (so he's kept in the cage as you can see above, although he should be let out to play in the day) Carefree is currently housed in this small cage first because he's still young, and Trigger is housed at another area with a bigger cage. But I heard from the housekeeper that Trigger has a new routine task ever since Carefree arrived – which is to walk over to Carefree's cage to accompany him first thing in the morning whenever he's let out of the cage when the housekeeper wakes up. Aww, that really warms my heart to hear and although I can see that they are always rough with each other, but the big boy (now 21kg) is constantly looking out for carefree. :)


Hello you big boy ;)

Attended ELLE'S Halloween Party on actual day, 31st October, courtesy of Sue Jean from Mediacorp. It was a Canon-sponsored event and I was there on a task actually, to sort of teach attendees some of my favourite poses for the night! I must say I had a good time that night, especially with the company of my dearest friends and I got to meet the Hot & Sexy Jean Danker who hosted the event. Good times pals!


Am excited that our first batch of self-manufactured designs has arrived! Couldn't wait and wore one of our designs out for that night, it comes in sizes and colours so do stay tuned to Klarra for the launch of it! Love this elegant bodycon piece. ;)

Had the opportunity to attend another event hosted my Mediacorp for i-weekly just two days ago, and it was a beauty workshop hosted for the public, partnering with brands like Panasonic, New Look etc.

Met two of our very own local gifted Deejays from Yes933 radio station, Jiahui & Cruz Teng ;)

Will be updating more on the above events again, and see you back here soon again!

Menya Musashi

Today's update came a lil later than usual as the past few days were exceptional hectic. Spent Saturday mastering the 'Gangnam Style' dance for Ethan and my friends' upcoming wedding specials.  We had a filming under the hot sun which another of his friend, Bob will then put together the clips to replicate the PSY MV and I can't wait to see how it turns out. It was definitely one of the best workouts anyone could have done – My back / legs started to ache the very next day. But actually, it was so much fun and I wouldn't mind doing it again!

*

Had a quick dinner with my dearest mommy-girlfriend, Linny just last week too and am amazed how much we can catch up within a short 2 hours. Additionally, I received a belated birthday present from her that very night – Naked Eyeshadow palette from Urban Decay, which made me on cloud nine because it has been something I've been wanting to try too. Love the neutrals! Thanks for the pretty gift, my dear :)

***

Just last week too, we organized an outing to celebrate Yixiong's belated birthday (though he has the same birth date as me) as it's pretty difficult for Linny&Yixiong to join us as and when especially after Baby Evangeline was born. They are the first couple in the gang to start a family and it's so amazing to witness how they cope with their kid, the new phase, basically, everything. Definitely helpful for us to learn the ropes too. heh

The celebration was held at Menya Musashi, a Ramen restaurant located at Raffles City which we heard raves about it – It's always packed with people and you probably have to queue every single time. We tried making reservations but they only allowed us to be seated when everybody arrived, so we had to forgo the table first and re-queued later on. Queue was pretty insane and we waited for about half hour before we were ushered to our seats. Glad to have Baby Evan joining us for that day too because she definitely kept us occupied during our waiting time!


Love this lil lime green lady bug.


We decided to test out the guys' paternal instincts and Ethan kinda semi has it based on the left picture, but not so much on the right picture. :p


OK. Vincent was worst and it was totally hilarious! The left picture shows how he received Baby Evan even after testing out a few different arm positions, and that was the most comfortable way of carrying her. We all had such a good laugh!


"Hey, where's my food??"


*BANGS* "No food, No shoot"


"Yay, I got my food!"

The restaurant specializes in 3 different soup bases – white, red and black. I had the red one, which I personally thought it was the best outta all, but yet again, I don't exactly think their ramen was fantastic – soup was a lil too starchy for my liking (a couple of my friends shared the same sentiments). But Haslinda and Yixiong love the ramen there so I suppose if you are a fan of thicker soup base, you might want to try this ;)


Three Guys & a Baby – this scene was too weird that I just had to capture it down for keepsake. They said it reminded them of a movie though I'm not sure which.

Outfit of the day: Scallop ends peach top from Pearlavish. Great cut, especially at the waist area ;)


Outfit of the day: Matched up a versatile and flowy blue midi dress from Pearlavish with my own studded vest. Love the shade and how it can be easily paired with outer apparels ;)
