Maroon Dawn

Hola:) Back with a short update as usual:) 
Went for a rare movie + lunch date with 1/3 of LFC :)
Decided to watch Girl In A Pinafore cos our school was featured in it!! and some of our friends acted in it also haha:)
Bart Simpson Knit Top in Maroon
Dip Drop White Jeans
Celine Inspired Wedges
EZ Celine Inspired Bag

So.. I have tons of knits (no joke it makes up 1/4 of my wardrobe which is ALOT numerically) but i rarely have the chance to wear it out in spore's weather sigh. It comes in super handy during year end overseas trips though! So i finally got to wear it since we're going to a pretty chilly theater:)

Oh and i have the biggest problem finding white jeans, its torturous omg -_- so when i tried on this pair at DipDrops (taka) and the fit was so so awesome i got it immediately, no regrets at all!! 

Review of TP knit: Made of knit slightly on the thicker side, might be abit hot for spore's weather depending on if you're the type who can stand heat or not. I think its okay for air conditioned places:) Quality of knit is really quite good, the maroon shade is gorgeous as well. Oh and the Bart picture is sewn on tightly, can be seen from the stitches on the flipside. The fit for this piece is just nice, not too small/ oversized:) Overall a good buy for an affordable price (about 27-28 if i rmb correctly) :)

Lunch was at some Hong Kong Style Cafe at JCube! Can't remember the name of the shop :x Kungfu paradise maybe?? Something along that line!

Buttered Bun
My companions for the day, Mui and Tzeshe!
Mui and I were really excited cos they had Liu Sha Bao, its like my favourite dim sum ever!!
There are def better ones around but this was okay too, managed to satisfy my craving hehe.

Fish Baked Rice
Mushroom Baked Rice
Food was okay, not too bad but not exceptionally outstanding, so.. mediocre i would say? Or at least for the dishes i tried. Cos when my parents went there for lunch and "dabao-ed" some food back for us, the TRUFFLE FRIES WAS SO SO GOOD. So if you go there... try the truffle tries!!!

Group photo before mui and ts went home and i joined my classmates who happened to be around Jcube aft finishing cip:)

haha, second round of feasting at Pique Nique XD Me and nikks ordered the Sticky Date Pudding to share:) It was good!!

Nikks and i decided to go walk around the new mall (JEMs) beside Jcube! But the moment we walked it... the shops were all closed due to some fire alert in the building which happened to be in the carpark. So we waited for like 15 minutes before the shops reopened, hence our sad faces haha

JEM has quite a good variety of shops i would say? Shopping and food wise. They had Lovisa, M&S, H&M etc! And a few new food places as well! Def going back to try some of the cafes! Oh and they have Marche too :D Love their Savoury Salmon Crepe and Rosti!!

Okay, till the next post!

Vanilla, Caramel, Velvet.

hello! quick updateeeee

Earring combi. One of my simplest pairings but fav up to date.

Wore Fairebelle/CL's Taylor Swift inspired mesh and eyelet dress(named Jayden Dress in fairebelle's launch i think) out for mel's church event:) It was some kind of food + music bazaar at City Hall:) No pics though, i was mainly watching performances so didn't bother taking pics :x

 Review: Bought this when fairebelle first launched their new website so there was like a $5 voucher of some sort so this dress is really worth it! I absolutely love the baby blue hue:) Its made of cotton, quite cooling and it has eyelet dots all round. Features a double hem design and woven criss cross details at the neckline. The fit is really good as well, i took size S and it fits very nicely. Def one of my fav summer dresses in my wardrobe!

My fav addition currently; Celine Inspired Bag from EZ.

Review: Not kidding when i say this is really one of my favs now:) Its super versatile, i like how it can be used as a tote or sling  (comes with additional straps). Not to mention that the pastel yellow is a super sweet hue which goes with alot of colours! Made of faux leather, quality is pretty good. Oh and despite its medium/not very big size, its surprisingly roomy with quite a few compartments. Def one of my best buys (bag-wise).

Other visuals.

Had my fav sogurt with nikki after PE! There was like 30% off for students muahahaha. 
-spams froyo-
& then cos we're greedy pigs(or at least me la), after sogurt we decided to make an impromptu trip to holland v for some highly raved cupcakes!
Behold, Plain Vanilla cupcakes! A slice of heaven, noms.

I loveeee Plain Vanilla's packaging! Bought a box of 4 and it came in this nice homely brown package wrapped with woody strings. Really gives off a warm, fuzzy feeling, like as if its fresh from a homemade bakery, made with love.

Placed it on a nice plate to insta it muahaha. (@etherealpeonies)
Here are the flavours i got! 
Back: White Chocolate Strawberry
Earl Grey Vanilla
Front: Salted Caramel
Red Velvet

I'd have to say my favs are the salted caramel one and earl grey vanilla!<3 Both tastes so so heavenly i can't even. Beats twelve cupcakes hands down. The cake is more moist and i prefer the texture to twelve cupcakes. And their frosting as well, esp for the salted caramel one i can feel the slight raw sugary taste (which i like) and it literally melts in your mouth. Craving for some of these so badly now!!

Had a nice dinz with seah before a concert :) 
@ everything with fries (Holland V)
Becos im so boringgg in my food choices i ordered the teriyaki chicken sandwich again, which im happy with la it tasted so yums as usual. Seah had bolognese with curry fries which was quite nice just that i think it would have been even better if she ordered the thin fries.
Impromptu starbucks visit with my class! It was the last day of starbuck's one for one offer so i dragged myself there even though my leg was hurting so bad from multiple blisters. (School shoes forever give me problems one le sigh)
Hi we are hobo kids hoboing outside coronation plaza.
Hehe our whole row of starbucks. I tried both mocha and green tea white pudding before, sadly to say i didn't like both -_- Caramel Frap all the way!!! #foreverfanofcaramelfrap
& then there was some youth leaders convention thingy in school, lotsa students from all over the world visited and had booths at the central plaza. My class girls' fav... the french booth LOL.
This french guy is too cute hahahahah.
Quotes mel: "This guy is love at first sight for me!!"
LOLOL hahahahha at least im not so cray over him XD 
Plus mel found out that he has a french model gf and im like, "okay can. game over for you mel hahaha"

anyws, im going for athena fac outing tml cos nics ask me to accompany her! Still kinda eggcited though its not my own faculty's haha! Hope it'll be good:) But actually im kinda going for the food only bwahahah swensens >)

till the next;

Roset Posies

Dress/ Threadtheory
Heels/ H&M

Decided to explore the old railway area one random day. Found this little hideout there, it was after a drizzle so the ground was wet, which i felt added more dimension to the pictures:) It looks like a mini stream doesn't it haha. So i decided to have a little impromptu shoot since its pretty scenic! Donning Threadtheory's Rose Rose, I Love You Dress in Pastel Yellow base. Its made of a denim like material which gives it a semi-structured hold, quite flattering if you ask me! It features a racer cut in at the shoulders and full flared skirt, the classic cutting which flatters everyone. I especially liked the floral prints, super pretty! Its like a splash of blue, yellow and pink in a subtle way which blends together. Loving this number from Threadtheory definitely!

Its available here i think, if you're interested ;)

Hope you guys liked this set of pictures! Will update again with a longer post soon!:)
