your lifestyle consultant
Howdy doody, I’m Juliana
Yay! You clicked on this! You must be pretty curious about me. Haha!
So here’s a three thousand-word essay on everything Juliana. JUST KIDDING! Please don’t hit the ‘X’ button yet!
So who am I?
My name is Juliana and I’m the writer and lifestyle consultant of ilovebunny.net, I’m a self-confessed Disney-holic as well as entrepreneur and founder of RESCU.sg, a mobile clinic / telemedicine company in MOH’s LEAP Sandbox.
My previous ‘preneurial endeavours include Singapore’s largest online beauty encyclopedia, Honeyz Cube and party studio, Honeyz Paint House and you guessed it, I have another something special in the works for you right now!
Watch this space!
I know you must have a lot of questions, why Ilovebunny and what’s with all the Honeyz? Well let’s get into it!
The web address is ilovebunny.net because I’ve a ginormous crush on bunnies and as an homage to my best friend, Bebe.
Little known fact, this blog was actually originally called Honeyz!
Using the term Honey to describe ‘an attractive woman’ really resonated with me! I simply went one step further and added the ‘z’ to add some extra panache and extend the definition to encompass a confident and intelligent new-age woman who is not afraid to express her desires, show off her charm and become the belle of every ball.
A belle is a woman who is admired for her beauty and sophistication, not to mention the name of one of my favourite Disney princesses, so collectively, I know you, my amazing readers, as my Honeyz Belles. Welcome to the club!
So what’s this blog about?
I’m a fashion, beauty and lifestyle devotee and this blog is here to help fellow fashion enthusiasts, beauty mavens and wanderlusters punch up their wardrobe, pick out knockout products for their makeup bags, live confidently and fashionably!
Before Honeyz Cube came along, the Internet was my beauty encyclopedia but I could never find a website that was dedicated to beauty reviews and tips for the South East Asian complexion.
The unique combination of lifestyle, diet and climate in this part of the world meant that generic beauty tips might not suit us. As I began to look for my own special beauty regimes and products, family and friends quickly took notice of the ‘new me’ and began to ask me for beauty and fashion advice. Soon I became their “Resident Beauty Guru”. Haha!
Encouraged by friends and family to share my beauty tips as well as my take on different beauty and fashion products and services, Honeyz was born on 11 June 2011 and the rest is, as they say, history!
This is Petite Amie!
A fellow fashion and beauty loving jet setter, she epitomises the modern woman!
What was I doing before Honeyz?
Always in search of new and exciting ventures, I found myself gaining valuable life skills while enjoying my time in various different professions before finally finding my feet.
Where shall I begin?
I enjoyed working in front of the camera modeling and as a local TV actress at the tender age of 16 but my desire to further myself academically led me to eventually enroll into the London School of Economics. This was an interesting time and the skills I learned were invaluable.
To make ends meet while I studied, I managed to use the tools I had acquired from my studies to work as a freelance property agent. It was lucrative, but I yearned for something more meaningful.
After I graduated, I decided to see the world and spent some time jet-setting and travelling around. It gave me a better perspective of things and upon my return, I landed probably the best job for a fresh grad ever! Think 5-star dinners, travel privileges and rubbing shoulders with leaders and dignitaries from 21 countries. Woo hoo!
I was working in the APEC Business Advisory Council and helped to organize and host the APEC meetings and conferences, meeting the likes of Hu Jintao, Stephen Harper, Jack Ma, Jet Li and of course, my favourite, Barack Obama.
I tried to soak up as much knowledge and wisdom as I could before, once again, feeling the need to move on.
All these experiences made me want more out of my life than just running the rat race!
I went on to work in an IT firm supporting their CSR efforts and creating buzz-worthy websites and apps and that’s when I embarked on my first solo venture, Honeyz blog followed by Honeyz Cube and I haven’t looked back ever since.
Somewhere along the way I bumped into a fellow Disney-holic, he asked me a very special question and I said I do! We tied the knot with a very merry Disney fairytale wedding and I’ve been simply overwhelmed with all the love and support I’ve received from all over the world since then!
So what am I working on now?
We live in interesting times but as always, the only constant is change!
Seeing first hand with my family, how frightening it can be seeking medical attention and looking at ways that I personally could make a difference, I realized just that, I could make a difference! It’s as if all my experiences, all the skills and knowledge I’d acquired had been preparing me for this moment!
I started my own mobile clinic service, I started RESCU.sg
In the same way the founder of Uber is not a driver and the founder or Airbnb is not a hotelier, I did not let my lack of medical training hold me back! There was a need and I did my best to meet it!
RESCU.sg was born Oct 2018 and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
I’m sure those of you who have been with me from the beginning will be amused by my unusual journey, but that’s entrepreneurship for you!
I’m still hungry and driven, I’m still working on new projects and I’m still here on this blog sharing everything with all of you!
Life is a journey, it’s about being able to tell a story and so far I’ve loved every second of it, more so because of you, my friends!
Thank you for all your support over the years, you’ve made my dreams come true!
Here’s to many more exciting years together!
