Sunday with the man and also the girlfriends @evonnz and @trishaliang! (See how much I love you all? Editor's pick today and first thing I do is to mention you two.)
Couldn't have been a better spent Sunday even though I had advertorial deadline looming upon me. I kept telling myself "I WILL DO IT WHEN I GET HOME" but FML obviously my bed was the first thing that called out to me once I reached home at night 😴
But now I'm awake at 4/5am! Edited some photos and started working on the blog post. Which I'll carry on in a bit but first let me share about my Sunday!
The best kind of Sundays are the super impromptu kind. I was meaning to stay home and work all day long but a call from @kenshinjeff aka @evonnz's husband to YZ, and ✨POOF!✨ We were on our way to Adam Road for nasi lemak at 11.45am!!!
What diet you tell me.
Forever not going to be skinny.
Apparently the nasi lemak at Adam road is some famous thing and even before we arrived (just in time for the food), Yang had already been queuing for close to an hour wtf.
Here is said nasi lemak. It's called Selera Nasi Lemak at Adam road food centre.
According to YZ, he prefers Punggol Nasi Lemak still. I personally felt that this was pretty good but since Punggol Nasi Lemak is much nearer to my place, I don't suppose I'll be visiting Adam Road very often. Also, Punggol Nasi Lemak definitely has the better deep fried chicken wings! 😋
Hungry girls with their even hungrier partners. 😁✨ The last time we had a triple date was like months ago so I thoroughly enjoyed myself today!!
So the girls wanted to head down to town to check out (yet another) MT tape exhibition and all of us trooped down to ION Orchard together! I honestly just had one thing in mind:
From ION's mailer above: FREE SCENT LIBRARY FROM PENHALIGON'S?? 我要!!!
Ever since I got myself a bottle of Penhaligon's Artemesia, I've been in love with their scents!!
But the fragrances at Penhaligon's are really not cheap so any chance to grab samples (just gotta share any blogpost from ION Insider) is awesome! Especially when it comes in such a nice little tin. You get ten of Penhaligon's fragrances!
I recommend you try Artemesia (my favourite), Peoneve (not included in scent library) and Quercus. These are three of their most wearable fragrances to me 😍
Nearly wanted to get the boyfriends and (one) husband to all share the blogpost on their Facebook page too so that we could get another three more scent libraries. But we decided not to in the end! 🙈 That's 3 more for y'all to redeem, guys and girls!
Anyways, Penhaligon's fragrances are unisex so they are for both men and women! Though some scents are obviously more feminine and others more masculine to me.
Whatever it is, I'm very happy with the pretty little scent library! #cheapthrill
Mr Forever-On-The-Phone and myself.
ION was surprisingly uncrowded for a weekend! YZ and I are very hardly in town during the weekends cos I prefer to avoid the crowds. It wasn't half bad at all today! I could do this more often! 😁
My casual coordinates for a Sunday. Top, bottom and shirt (that I used to tie around my waist) all from #thevelvetdolls (that's www.thevelvetdolls.sg for you if you're new here) and the skorts are fresh in and about to be launched some time this month! 😍
I haven't carried my LV backpack for awhile but I thought I'd bring it out for some fresh air today since it suited the more laid back and relaxed look. Got it at a steal at a 2nd hand shop last year, I should carry it more!
I really should re-make this top. It's one of my favourites! So easy to pair too. And the upcoming skorts are 😍😍😍👍👍👍 Love the flattering fit and the soft textured fabric! I'm quite fussy about fit if I do say so myself. But this one makes my waist and bottom look smaller than they really are 🙈
This week has been quite a horrible week. It's been so hectic I haven't felt like I could really just let go of everything and relax, plus I've been bickering non-stop with YZ over every single thing. 😴 I really hate expending so much energy on arguments, it leaves both parties mentally and physically drained. Call it wedding nerves or something I guess. It's less than four months away and suddenly doesn't seem so far off anymore.
Just praying that everything goes as smoothly as possible.. And I can't wait for it to be over and done with, really. There's still so much more to be settled FML!
1. My wedding gowns
2. His suit
3. Our wedding rings
4. The guest list & invites
5. Deco and styling
8. Photo montage??
9. Hair & Make-up
10. Everything else
And the five kg I need to lose 😒😒😒
*pulls hair out*
I'm gonna tackle everything one by one. When I can.
Meanwhile.. I'll go get some sleep and wake up to work on my advertorial draft.
💕 Thanks for the editor's pick, Dayre! 💕
I feel like I need an obligatory self-introduction post, but I think my posts pretty much speak for themselves.
But first, look for me on
