On The Last Day Of CNY…

In a twinkle of an eye, all the lunar festivities are ‘almost’ over. Well technically, tomorrow is the last day. 😛

It was really nice catching up with everyone and of course, indulging in the sumptuous gourmet spread every time we visit a relative’s home. Everyone is talking about new clothes, new goals and new dreams.

I definitely look forward to the promise of a new beginning. Psst! And also wish for a little bit of pixie dust for renewed confidence in everything we dabble in this New Year of the Doggie! Whoopee woofee!

In these last hours of the Spring Festival, I thought we could just recap some of my favorite CNY styles during the first few days of the new year.

Our little island spent gallant efforts creating vibrant and interesting landscapes. So this CNY, I decided to skip around the island, exploring true heartland areas, from our imperial styled Chinese Garden to our ubiquitous yet extremely iconic HDB neighbourhoods in my festive coordinates.

All outfits featured here are courtesyy of our local retailers, The Design Closets and Joop Boutique.

Since the CNY is so close to Valentine’s Day this year, I also included a mini Vday fashion spread taken in a prominent CBD area to extensively showcase all aspects of our Singaporean architecture. Hehe!

Now please join me in celebrating our true heartland areas in oriental style!

You’re never fully dressed without perfume!

Who else agrees?

My everyday scent has to be pleasant yet mellow and versatile. On some days, I’ll even match my fragrance to my mood for the day. Citrusy notes for a more fun and feisty mood or a creamy note for a glamorous demeanour.

I definitely appreciate a nice flacon for the vanity too!

Speaking of pretty flacons, here’s a special shoutout to Aura Prestige for sending these over to Bobby and I! Their rich red hues and elegant designs look perfect for my CNY home decor set up.

This is real life. 😂

Happy CNY everyone!
