Bally showcase with Dior 1 Couleur

Apologies for not posting as often recently! Things have been a bit hectic (excited to announce a new collection soon) but I’d like to share a highlight from last week and a new make up fave!

I got the opportunity to work with Sam Ong, a celebrity make up artist in Singapore, on a Bally fashion showcase! For everyone who thinks it’s all glitz and glamor, check out the storeroom in which we had to do the makeup and dressing in! (It was still awesome nonetheless – imagine being so close to many Bally goodies!).

It was some time back when I got this dress. Great for throwing on with other tops and accessories to run errands with. (It probably wasn’t meant to be that loose either – most things are incredibly loose on me unless they come in XS or XXS eep.)

In Singapore where it’s summer all year round, layering just makes me want to run home and hide in a/c. So time to transform this dumpy loose dress into something more fun, and without a need to layer!

Printable birthday cards

It’s been some time since I designed free printable cards so here’s the next one! (Starting to realize how much I love circles haha).

I adapted this design from an old sketch I did and from the new thank you image on my page – hit subscribe on the sidebar and you’ll see it! ;)

And guess what! Today’s my home country’s birthday. Yes, Singapore turns 47 this year. So – you guessed it – these will be happy birthday cards! (Not in our national colors of red and white though.)
