Jean Yip: Be the cover!
Leather jacket from H&M, Black tank from H&M, Jeans (they're my favourite pair!) from Topshop
A few weeks ago, I had the amazing opportunity to have my hair cut, styled and shot by Jean Yip SG! It was a great experience meeting new people like Nicole, Galissa (the other model) and especially Mervin, the creative director for Jean Yip! He gave me a excellent cut and dye job that included some highlights! Never really liked venturing into dyeing my hair in the past because i never knew what colour suited my skin tone etc etc and i didn't wanna end up looking sloppy with a bad dye job but i'm so glad i did this because it turned out SO WELL! Also, I'm super particular with hair salons after my last disastrous haircut AKA the reason why i have short hair now but i felt so at ease while Mervin was cutting and dyeing my hair! I love their service and their staff was real friendly. (They kept offering me multiple cups of yummy coffee while waiting for the dye to set heh heh)
Holidays are almost over and i just booked my next appointment with Jean Yip to get my hair back into shape because it has grown since my last time there and i'm thinking.......... maybe an even shorter hairdo? ;)

A lot of people ask me where i like shopping at and with no hesitation, Zara is always my answer. I don't shop there as often as i'd like to but when i do, it's always something worth drooling about.
On a beautiful sunday afternoon, i fell in love. Thick black glossy ankle straps with its uncanny similarity to birkenstocks caught my eye in the corner of Zara and AT THAT MOMENT, I SWEAR WE WERE.....okay let me stop myself here. Let me just say that it was a pair of shoes i just had to have.
Of every beautiful pair of Zara shoes that i own, i must admit: these were the most comfortable of them all. Ive always told myself (about the other pairs of shoes): yes i'll wear it! most definitely! But after one or two rounds they sit on my bedside shelf in their dustbags and i can almost hear they begging to be worn. I apologise, dear protectors of my feet, for you do not protect my feet at all!!!!! After a while it gets a bit painful to walk around in (but then again, maybe theyre just new shoes). I'm all for comfort over style and i'm very glad to say that i AT LEAST have a pair from Zara they includes both comfort & style.
Been shooting lots and have been delightfully inspired by many things and people around me. Currently working on a series of photographs i have been inspired to shoot and i can't wait to accomplish it! I'm starting to realise what i want and it's been eye opening, definitely. Watch this space
of blisters, rain & peaceful nights,
Adventures of Models & Moon Moon: 'SPLORERS
Spending this holidays being adventurous and proactive, rather than lounging my lazy ass on my floral sheets pretending to be productive. I apologise for the scarce updates, though. Twenty-fours in a day is simply not enough, especially when you're swarmed with school assignments. Life of a design student, as we all know it.
Ells, grace and i (or, models & moon moon as we like to call ourselves hehe :p) decided to be adventurous and explore the hidden places of singapore. Away from bustling roads and crowds, we found a little gem. Run down yet beautiful in its little ways, was a lonely little house. It was nothing like i've seen before, though. (Not many houses still look this way) Perfect to take pictures!
Stopped by Kith Cafe for some refuelling (the sun was VICIOUS!). Ells and i got the big breakfast and grace had the Corn omelette. Fact: Big Breakfasts are my guilty pleasure. there's nothing i love more than pure FATS on a plate......and toast.......and mushrooms..... okay, i'm going to have to stop myself here before i drool all over my keyboard. The ice mocha came in a huge glass with tons of chocolate running down the sides (!!!) The best kinda thing to wash down all that fats with! One thing i've come to realise about cafe food is the portions in which they serve their food in. Kith Cafe is definitely not stingy in their portions, because i could barely finish everything on my plate! Definitely adding Kith Cafe to my list of favourite cafes to go back to >:)
Headed down to Jean Yip for a hair appointment in preparation for a photoshoot with them and i'm very excited to share that with everyone so stay tuned!
lots of love & french toast
