Having interacted and covered quite a number of start-ups on the blog over the past 6 years, I admit that I do not stay in touch with many of them. How have they done fast forward years later?
Truth to be told, I’m a changed woman. My shopping budget year-to-date has been largely blown on active wear.
If you have been seeing me rotating around the same dresses or same outfits, yes it’s because I have been distracted at regular shopping. Or rather, it has been sidelined by sportswear shopping.
I discovered yet another place for cheap and pretty sportswear recently – Forever 21! The stores here in Singapore have small sportswear sections that get refreshed regularly. The online store has tonnes of pretty and affordable stuff that call out my name all the time.. especially their pretty sports bras.
I love these strappy bras, makes you wanna train your core muscles harder so as to flaunt the bra top at yoga class: Low Impact Strappy Sports Bra (US$12.90), Low Impact Criss-cross Front Sports Bra (US$14.90)
If you have been reading enough beauty blogs… or have been always paid attention to new beauty products and their launches, you would probably be familiar with the idea of “enhanced” versions. Essentially, the same product gets some refinements or additional ingredients and the brand does a relaunch for the enhanced products.
This season, my two favourite sunscreens were enhanced and relaunched. Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution Day Screen now comes with anti-pollution production, as well as in three shades – Translucent, Fairness and Rosy Glow. Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense has also been reformulated with stronger defense against UV rays.
Launched exclusively at H&M Orchard Building since last Thursday (16 April 2015), this year’s H&M Conscious Exclusive features elegant pieces drawing inspiration from global influences such as signature Japanese draping and African prints and embellishments.
As per previous Conscious collections, all the apparel are made from sustainable materials such as hemp and organic leather.
Olivia Wilde is the face the Conscious Collection campaign this year. The maxi dress above is priced at S$399.
I recently read “Hard Truths to Keep Singapore Going” by Mr Lee Kuan Yew. I’m quite ashamed that I bought the book when it first launched in 2011, only to had it gather dust on my bookshelf. I am glad that I eventually picked it up again 4 years later and I am in awe with the deep insights and candid views of our first Prime Minister.
I was amused by his comments on the ostentatious display of wealth and wanted to share with all of you. Admittedly, it does appear contradictory to post this up since this is supposed to be a fashion blog.
Last week, I attended a fun party organized by Kate Spade to celebrate the opening of the Marina Bay Sands boutique.
The set up of the party was ubiquitously Kate Spade - whimsical prints, quirky bags and fun models!
Bright colours and vibrant prints are set to reign again, bringing home the message that “Summer is approaching!” Two upcoming designers’ collaborations launching in April are flaunting fun prints and chic resortwear.
