[AD] SALON VIM X THE VAUNT CLOSET

November 29, 2012
My hair was very dry and a bit damaged due to all the chemical services I did for the past one month so I had to go back to my favorite hair salon : SALON VIM to fix it!
Not very obvious in this picture, but my hair’s super hard to manage and the ends were very dry!
Quite bad right?
When I walked into Salon Vim, I literally whined to my hair stylist Fiona 
“Please help me my hair is soooooooo dry!!!!!”
She’s like OKAY NO DYEING OR PERMING YOUR HAIR TODAY!!! I’ll only help you trim and do treatment.
She’s like my hair’s mama, take care of my hair all and ensure I don’t damage it further <3
So after she trimmed my hair, we proceeded to the usual Redken treatment which I blogged about here! This is the first step (:
This time she used 3 shots which target my dry ends! It’s my 3rd time doing this treatment so far and I’m still loving it. It really helps to soften my hair and makes it more manageable.
Waiting for the first step treatment to set in before hair wash. Did I mention I love the head massage there????
I secretly didn’t want my hair wash to end cos the head massage is really relaxing. I’ve got a stiff neck due to all the late nights I have with my laptop so I’m always looking forward to massages!
Fiona mixing my cocktail treatment (:
And here’s the final result….
My hair is a lot more manageable, more bouncy and lighter! Fiona always does an amazing job to my hair and I always leave Salon Vim feeling SUPER satisfied. 
UH HUH OH YEAH *FLIPS HAIR*
Fiona was also very kind to let me take home Redken hairspray to use when I tong my hair (:
So glad that my hair is healthier-looking and lighter now!!!

I love the combination of denim and black chiffon. Would match it with a pair of denim pants to enhance the look!

โ˜†GC WEEKENDโ˜†

November 28, 2012
BONJOUR~~
I had a really great weekend last week! So to kick start my “TGIF”, Mich and I went to Marriot Hotel for high-tea buffet!
And here’s her trying to get more tea I think, DRAMA QUEEN TITLE GIVE YOU OKAY.
Hahah look at the caucasian behind. He’s totally like…OHLAWDY what’s this girl doing?!
The spread was good! Mich and I love it. There were teochew porridge section, a small section of seafood and not forgetting salmon, small jap section and a few asian counters which include Singapore cuisine and Hong Kong cuisine! The dessert section was pretty damn insane, I LOVE!!!
I didn’t go to the counters to take pictures cos personally I think it looks a bit rude. Like people trying to scoop food to their plate and you’re there taking photos. ALSO I JUST WANT TO WHACK ALREADY LUH. Buffet eh, the food is like screaming “EAT ME NOW BITCHHHHH!!!”
There was even a Rojak counter whereby you have to DIY!!! They have all the ingredients in small bowls and you just gotta pick what you want mix it altogether with the sauces. Makes me feel likka pro, not kidding!
MM AHEM I THINK MY ROJAK IS HAWKER STALL WORTHY
*Strikes a smug*
It’s damn good okay, I couldn’t stop eating and I kept telling Michelle I’m gonna open a rojak stall already!!
Tq for taking time out to lunch with me despite having exam next week. All the best if you see this โ™ก
I think Mich and I are pretty similar, like our thinking and our relationships so we can hit off very well. She’s a very cute/cartoon character as well, so it’s really fun being with her!!
DESSERT TIME OOOLALA~~~~
The tea is freaking awesome too!
If there was one thing in the world I can’t live without, that would be desserts!
Headed off to Gushcloud office at night for Thanksgiving dinner/drinks (:
Priddy Donzy and Freda…and my sticky wet fringe. Thanks ah rain.
Gushcloud holds a mini gathering aka “GCweekend” on the 3rd Friday of every month where they convert the backyard into a bar, and that was actually my first time joining them after being with Gushcloud for close to half a year.
Thank you Carmen for inviting me, it was really fun <3 Can’t wait for the next GCweekend already!!
Even got special dance performance by Narpal which we all couldn’t stop laughing!
Last minute decision to club cos Donna wanted to and I promised her I would if she wants to go. Hence, the flats, HATE CLUBBING WITH FLATS. I don’t like feeling short with everyone towering over me. I don’t even mind wearing maxi dress or what, just no flats!!
All the colourful heads again! They make me look like a boring Jane ๐Ÿ™ Hahah I wish I had the balls to go pink or something but nope… balls too small. And I care too much about having damaged hair. 
Aaron!
My TJM fashion show model, remember???? The one at Zouk! Handsome right? But sorry, attached to my friend Gerri Berri already ^^
Daryl!! 
First time meeting him and I like his character already! Super cute and fun, plus damn easy to talk to! (: People like him kill the inner autistic side in me lol, good good!
Jiawei and Tammy!
Hahah #siaoliao this girl.
Didn’t get to see Sofie and the rest but at least the night ended on a very good note (: yeah except for that sticky wet fringe of mine -.-
Went over to Daniel’s the next day *YAYYER YAY*
Wanted my complexion and feet to rest so it was a dress down Saturday!
Thank God for good hair day and Iphone filter ^^ Only had concealer, blusher, and lipbalm on but still look ok! 
FINE I ADMIT I THINK IT’S GOOD LUH, NOT OK. Hahahaha
Went to buy christmas deco and christmas tree for his house! And I bought back two new friends.
Brown is called Hippowoods, have yet to name the white one. Polarwoods?
Mm the name is actually inspired by Daniel.
Daniel : “EH, I THINK I STILL GOT MY GOLFING SKILLS” *playing golf in his room with his imaginary golf club*
Me : “Wah you think you tigerwoods ah? More like hippowoods”
I just bought Hippo kinderbueno so I anyhow bomb one.
Me : “OKAY I’M GONNA NAME MY TEDDY BEAR AFTER YOU, YOU AND HIM ARE NOW HIPPOWOODS “
Random right? But better than him giving lame names to my bears like… BABA -.- That’s what he named my panda from Hongkong
Polarwoods and Hippowoods got first class seats ^^
So anyways, we went for dinner at La Petite then headed back to set up the christmas tree FROM SCRATCH. It was a lot of effort but the satisfaction you get after seeing a beautiful tall tree is…unbelievable. 
NICE RIGHT? Feeling the christmas season already!
Some clay mask before sleeping (:
Woke up at 8am to accompany Daniel’s brother for his band photoshoot and yes, this is my get-ready-in-10-mins-face.
Washed up, changed up, concealer and pam… gone in 10 minutes. LIKE A PRO! Hahah.
Really love this weekend though it was pretty simple (:
I’ve learnt something and that’s not to keep your expectations too high and you’ll learn to be contented with a lot of things! 
I hope your weekend was great! 
JUICE 77 {DIAMONDS IN THE SKY} IS LAUNCHED!

ROASTING WITH WEARERUBBISH

November 25, 2012
Every morning a girl starts her battle by dressing up in her
battle gear. There is a WAR within every wardrobe.
Let your battle gear start with……..



“I believe every girl should dress like she’s going to meet her worst enemy everyday. If you have to fight today, thrash it in style. After all, who are we without the outer skin we wear? “
We are rubbish is everything I like. It sets itself apart from other blog shops, in tune with the latest trends, has gorgeous models, and takes really nice photos. Most importantly, it caters to all sorts of different style.

PERFECT FOR CHRISTMAS!
If you don’t already know,
WE ARE RUBBISH is a Singapore based online
destination for fashion-forward, free-thinking barbies. Founded in 2010, WE ARE RUBBISH started a Livejournal E-store selling
highly curated selection of vintage pieces. Now, W.A.R offers a wide selection
of the most desirable trendy pieces and occasional coveted vintage clothing and
accessories available online, as well as unique new designer inspired pieces.
See the latex pants that Eunice (the model) is wearing! Jordus, the owner of W.A.R sent me one too (: Really love it, super my style!!
Glossy, perfect fit, highwaisted and LOUD!!!! <3
If you’re like me and love matching with basics, then W.A.R is really the place to shop at!!! 
Cheap and nice (: and of course we should never neglect the style factor in dressing up.
Besides the boyfriend blazer, party dresses or basics for matching, they have PERFECT outfits for school that would capture the right amount of attention. Here’s another butterfly sleeve top they sent me and I love it.
So girly yet chic!
CAN’T WAIT TO VISIT W.A.R ALREADY??
LIKE THEM ON FACEBOOK FIRST FOR PREVIEWS AND NEWS UPDATE FIRST!
They have also launched a new collection so don’t hesitate now.
Be there or be square!
Of course, all my readers get a little more love (:
And thank you Jordy for sending me those items, especially the flawless disco latex pants!
_________________________________________________________________________________
And as my blog title “Roasting with WeAreRubbish” suggests, I wore my latex pants out to Roast Restaurant with Vera on Thursday!

It was really comforting to meet a good friend since I had a pretty rough week, plus I haven’t seen Vera for ages. Simple brunch but fruitful + happy day for us :*
Lush greenery, perfect for girly brunches! We plan to come back for dinner and see if it’s nicer at night!

My roasted chicken.
It wasn’t very nice but alright I guess?

And Vera’s sea bass which was quite good!

The main course wasn’t fantastic but what I really really liked were the desserts from 1-Caramel!

Both were nice!

Roast is located at One Rochester in Rochester park!
The nearest mrt station is Buona Vista and it’s right beside Star Vista (:

  

Floral bralet – Bangkok
Leather jacket – WELUVMEOW
Disco pants – W.A.R
Fur sling bag – H&M Bangkok
Pointed heels – M.phosis
This was later at night with Jia (: Tried Paris Baguette at wisma and I like the mango thingum!!!

Jia in TJM‘s sold out knotted maxi dress (:
Really thankful for these girls in my life cos my awful week was turned around within a day just by meeting them. 
I know I haven’t been updating as much as before and that’s because I’m really very very busy with TJM. It’s a bit less busy now cos Juicesea4 backorders are closed and I’m only left with the last backorder to settle. I’ll definitely blog about my Gushcloud weekend soon (: Super fun Friday with the GC family!
Meanwhile, have a great week (: and do check back this space.
