Summer Lovin' In The UK

Friday, August 21, 2015

My recent vacation once again proved that it's a real super power to look totally on fleek when you're on the go.

Seriously, fashion goals can only be achieved if you're lugging a huge suitcase and sleeping five hours a day - because you're spending the rest of your time picking out the next outfit, doing your makeup, styling your hair and travelling.

Sheesh, just how do these fashion bloggers come up with a cornucopia of stylish ensembles every time they're on holiday?

To top it off, the summer weather I experienced in the UK this time was also pretty atypical. Think low temperatures and extremely cold winds. Oh wait - is that normal UK weather?

This meant that I needed to prepare more covered up clothes like... pants.

Well, I'm never a fan of long garments as they usually bring attention to my not-so-flattering-looking thighs. Pfft!

Thank heavens that fashion labels are now coming up with more high waisted bottoms that are perfect for creating the 'legs for days' illusion. Haha!

So despite the inherent challenges of looking fashion-forward on vacation, I managed to come up with a few looks that I was absolutely happy with. Woo hoo! Let's rock and roll!

Ace That Internship Interview!

Thursday, July 16, 2015

A couple of entries back, I announced that Honeyz Cube 2.0 and its new showroom is finally coming to fruition and what do you know!

My phone and social media channels were immediately inundated with encouraging messages and well wishes. Thanks guys! The influx of positive words certainly boost my confidence and inspired me to continue living the life of my dreams.

As emphasized in my 'How I Found My Dream Job' blog post, in order to score that dream job, you'll need to buck the system, meet amazing people, seize new opportunities and come up with a long-term goal.

And how else to do it than securing a stellar internship with a great company and working alongside your future boss and colleagues? Yowza! You bet your bottom dollar it'll be the perfect place for you to learn the ropes, expand your network and show your prospective employer you are determined to bring the company vision to life.

I've definitely been a job interviewee but I've also been in the hot seat as 'the interviewer' several times and during my stint, I noticed there are a few unspoken factors that leading Singapore internship providers also look out for.

Wanna know what else influences the decision of our potential employers? Read on!

Singapore Best Beauty Blog

My dear friends and loved ones,

After a last minute flurry of activity, with votes coming in left, right and centre, pushing my final vote count to an unimaginable 1101, I still only managed to finish in second place.

As I write this, I'm wiping away a tear from my eye. Not a tear of sorrow, but a tear of joy and gratitude.

I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd be able to garner more than a handful of votes, never mind enough votes to make me a serious contender for the top spot. No matter what happens, what the outcome, I know that I'm truly the luckiest gal in the world. Whee!

Waking up everyday to see your encouraging messages gave me the strength and courage to keep going, even when it seemed like there was no hope. But dear friends, hope is not lost. With your support, I was able to pour my heart and soul into two posts which were submitted to the judges for their consideration. You can read all the finalists' submissions here -http://blog.omy.sg/sba-plus/category/2015-best-beauty-blog/

With the 'Most Popular' spot taken, we can still vie for the judges' choice for Best Beauty Blog 2015.

If lady luck was to shine on me one more time, this will surely be a prize that we all earned together.

The award ceremony takes place on July 23rd, I hope that the next time you hear from me, I will be bringing tidings of joy.

You're my life force, you're my friends. I wuv you all!!

Your friend,
