Saturdate with Daniel!

September 22, 2013
MY DATE WITH SUSULAN!!!!
I’m sure many of you miss this kinda post on my blog cos it’s been a SUPER long time since I even went on a date. Ever since Daniel and I broke up in Feb, I didn’t go out on a proper date with other guys cos I was just uninterested in other guys. A lot of my friends kept telling me “just go out with other guys la! give them a chance and give yourself a chance.” but I just didn’t. Honestly, there were quite a number of guys going after me then (idk how to put it in a less shameless way please pardon me) and some of them were in fact pretty eligible guys to say the least but I just wasn’t…feeling it. I didn’t want to lead them on also cos it’s really unfair to them that I go out on a date with them knowing nothing will transpire between us.
 Hence, it’s been what, half a year since I went out with a guy I like. And thank God, the guy is still Daniel (:
LOL SOMEONE REALLY NEEDS TO BRING ME ON A SHOE SHOPPING! 
This pair of sandals are really worn to death!
My susu!!! Always my source of joy (:
Watercolor romper is a sponsored piece! Will blog about it next (:
We caught “We’re the MILLERS” and it’s SUPER funny omg!!!!! YOU GUYS MUST WATCH IT, I GIVE IT A 10/10! It’s perfect hahaha. And it’s really damn funny until I suddenly laughed out loud unglamourously in the theatre. I felt so embarrassed after that cos it was a really horrible laughter hahaha. But my point is, you gotta catch it if not it’s your loss!
We cabbed down to Tanjong Pagar after that for dinner!
MANBOK!

My susu cooking the meat for us both :*
So this sums up our date! Nothing extravagant, just something simple and I’m already contented. So glad we both enjoyed the korean dinner! And thank you for sending me home after that though you live miles away (Thomson and Jurong = LDR!!!!) Can’t wait for our trip happening in 10 days’ time!!!!! 
NOTE BLOGSHOP OWNERS!
Actually I’m looking for clothes sponsor for the trip cos I really don’t have the time to shop for new clothes. So, if any blogshop is interested in sponsoring me clothes for my trip in return for ig and blog shoutout, do email me! I know it’s super last minute so I will be cutting 50% off the usual advertorial rate. I’ll let you know then what kinda clothes I need for the trip (: 
ps. confirm will have nice pictures for the posts one cos it’s a super beautiful place!

Lastly, I’m launching a new collection on TJM tonight at 7pm!


HAVE A GREAT WEEK AHEAD TROOPS!

SALON VIM F/W ’13 PHOTOSHOOT {BTS}

September 20, 2013

Early call time at 8am and everyone was so listless and tired!

My first look :  glamourous. I look like DA CHANG JIN or those ancient Korean court ladies no????
HAHA LOOK LIKE RIGHT????! 

Corde werking it.

So this is the overall of my first look. Not that da chang jin after all hahah.
Hair – SALON VIM!!!
Make up – Maz from Shu uemura  
Clothes – Love Bonito

My second look :  Retro!
I LOVE THIS LOOK. JUST LOOK AT THE PSYCHEDELIC MAKE UP AND POOFY HAIR!!!
I think Maz is an amazing make up artist (:

And a group picture with all the gorgeous ladies! Such a fun bunch to work with. They are really friendly and nice throughout the whole shoot. Thank God they are all outspoken if not I’d have been super shy and reserved (which I usually am with new people) the whole time!

Miyake looks like a doll and she’s super fair and… her face shape is just perfect! Me love!
I don’t think I will get my hands on the final photos but they will be up on Salon Vim website soon (: Thank you Salon Vim for this opportunity for picking me to be your “glam” look girl. I’m really flattered cos there so many other bloggers I can easily think of who can pass off as glamourous more than I can. And also it was a great experience to do a commercial aka non-blogshop shoot cos it is a whole new different dynamic of posing (it was a bit hard for me to stray away from blogshop posing since I’ve been doing it for the past 4 years for TJM and used to for others). And it was definitely fun working with Corde, Miyake, Rachel and Evonne. All whom I’ve met for the first time and absolutely a joy to be around with. 
Super relieved that 3 out of 4 of my assignments are down and I’m only left with one more! It’s really been a very stressful period for me. Swamped with school assignments, and busy with TJM weekly launch, preparation for new JUICESEA design, and other commitments like blog advertorials(coming up soon), putting my upcoming overseas trip together and making all the necessary bookings. *PULLS HAIR* I don’t even have time to go for facial or replace my fugly manicure. A few other things are also making me frustrated and edgy, making my overall mood very bad. And I had a very bad night with D last night, plus I’m down with a stomach ache and headche. Really hope all this shit ends soon and PLEASEEEEE let me have a good weekend at the very least.
May we ALL have a great weekend k!
Oh last but not least, new arrivals will be up this Sunday (:

Sombre Hair!

September 18, 2013
OFF TO SCHOOL AND THEN TO SALON VIM TO GET MY SOMBRE HAIR~~
I really love this tribal jacket from TJM‘s latest collection but I don’t understand why not many people are buying it cos I really LOVE it!!!! Even Daniel thinks it’s nice! Like it’s super versatile and goes damn well with basics!
So back to my Sombre hair.
Sombre actually means SOFT OMBRE which means it’s a subtle kind of ombre coloring, and it’s the latest hair trend for F/W2013. Scroll down to see the end result (:
I also tried the new Keratase hair treatment. Did the combination of weakened hair formula + dry hair serum! Love Salon Vim for always introducing new treatments to cater to different needs. 
Redken cocktail treatment & this Keratase treatment for strengthening hair, and my favorite Arimino Privy treatment for softer hair!
And tadah!!!!! MY SOMBRE HAIR!!!
So the technique for my hair is from dark to light color (:
TQ Daniel for accompanying me 😀 and on a random note, I LOVE THE ORCHARD ROADSIDE $1 ICE CREAM HEH.
Good lighting + good hair = camwhoring
GO GET YOUR SOMBRE HAIR AT SALON VIM NOW!
And remember to quote my name to get 10% off (:
Call them at 68847757 to book an appointment!
Besides getting me prepared for F/W ’13, this hairstyle was also done in preparation for the shoot I just did for Salon Vim today! Haven’t done a commercial shoot in ages so I was really excited. Though it was a super tiring day but I really had fun with the girls and SV crew shooting 😀
Will blog about it soon. Meanwhile, here’s a photo to make you come back to read hahah.
POODLE ME!
TATA,
SOPHIA
