June is my favourite month of the year and I am truly sad to see it breeze past. A couple of brands announced collaboration during the month and at the later part of June, we started seeing Fall/Winter collection previews streaming in. Honestly, the weather is sweltering hot that I can’t envision anything beyond jersey, silk and bright colours for now!

And here’s what you missed on my Facebook Fan Page in June!

[26 June 2012] Say hi to the world’s first all diamond ring.. a whopping 150 carat… PS: tomorrow’s blog post shall be about diamonds too, stay tuned! [link]

I am not sure who will wear a 150 carat diamond ring out in broad daylight but here is the link for those who are interested to find out more about this one-of-its-kind jewellery piece!

[21 June 2012] The #MarcJacobs Mini Stam is a classy and elegant bag for working ladies! [link]

I attended the preview of Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter collection and saw a few classic leather bags, such as the reissue of the black leather Mini Stam in the above picture. The Stam bag is probably one of Marc Jacobs’ most popular bags – I think subsequent designs were rather lacklustre – what do you think of this reissue? Would you be interested to find out more about Marc Jacobs bags?

[17 June 2012] Had manicure at a hole-in-the-wall place.. Cost only S$6+ yo get a manicure in HK Island! Say Hi to my hot pink nails from Dior Vernis Cosmo! [link]

Found a manicure place in Hong Kong Island that was really affordable – manicure was only S$6 and pedicure was S$15. The service was so-so but hey, you can afford to do your manicure every other day at S$6 a pop! I took the opportunity to use the new Dior Vernis Gloss shade number 178 (Cosmo). It’s a bright cranberry pink that is perfect for summer.

For those who are keen to know the address of the manicure parlour that I went to – it’s Nail 88 at Sheung Wan, telephone number +852 2851 6711. They also have outlets at Wanchai and North Point. But I need to manage your expectations a little.. it is really a hole-in-the-wall kinda beauty parlour!

[15 June 2012] Friday Lunch Video Treat: Call Me Maybe by the Abercrombie & Fitch boys. [link]

[9 June 2012] Saturday news flash! Karl Lagerfeld is collaborating with shu uemura on an exclusive collection to be launched this November. Will it be available at shu uemura Singapore? Meanwhile, here’s a quick recap of Kaiser Karl’s makeup collaboration with Sephora last year. [link]

After posting this news flash on Facebook, I received the email from shu uemura here in Singapore. It seems that this collection should be available here at the end of the year. I am terribly excited about this collaboration and will definitely share more information as soon as I receive them.

六月天,夏日炎炎,是出国度假的好时间。时间过得悠闲,怎么一晃就过去了呢?过去的一个月活动不多,但是不少时装品牌已开始举行秋冬季预览。说真的,天气如此炎热,真的很难将自己置身在寒冷的秋冬气候。因此,非常佩服媒体工作者,因为需要2,3个月的时间预备杂志的文章,往往得将自己的思维快转,很不容易!六月除了听到H&M 公布与 Maison Martin Margiela合作限量系列外,植村秀也与Karl Lagerfeld老爷合作,将在今年年底推出假日系列。今年下半年,有好多值得期待的事与物。最令您兴奋的,又是什么?
