Dressed in Pink

MID-WEEK  Aloha guys! Wow, it really feels good to be back on my blog. It really do. I've been trying my very best to do regular updates, but when I'm finally home at the end of day I kinda gave in to the temptation of having a little rest on the bed... well, that was the original plan, until it turned into a sleep! Whoops. I've been really busy up to my tippy little toes, always running for appointments and workshops right from the morning all the way till night falls. Everything is good except that I'm still having a little difficulty trying to adjust my schedule to fit everything in, haha!

The only thing that's bugging me at the back of my mind is that I have no idea why I've been falling sick pretty often lately. Just recovered from a bout of flu not too long ago and I had to get another upset stomach yesterday. (Trust me, that's not exactly the most exciting thing to happen..) I couldn't decide if the 2 hours worth of tossing and turning around in bed at 4am was worse, or the bout of nausea that keeps coming back. Thankfully!! I'm getting much better today so I guess it's time for a little rain check on my (slightly) unhealthy food choice. It makes me realise that I've been taking my health for granted on good days.. and when the bug hits me it's really super duper bad. I'm just thankful to have KJ who drove over to my house immediately at 5am in the morning just to take care of me!

June has also been an unbelievably, unforgivingly, smothering hot... month. After KJ and I shot these pictures about two weeks ago, I happily instagrammed about the sweater weather (doesn't the words already sounds so good together).. BUT, unfortunately the cooler weather didn't came back any more. Why oh why? So on that lucky day I was wearing this baby pink short dress (yes I'm pretty sure it's going to be a dress if I can be a little more petite) and it was casual look pulled together with a red jacket and my pair of white creepers.

I would love to tell you girls where I got the dress from because I really think that's kinda cute, but the thing is that I got it out from my cousin's wardrobe (and she doesn't have a second piece anymore). Hur hur hur okay enough of my bad jokes, please be nice. Well so you girls know all about the Carousell app right? My cousin was just posting pictures after pictures of clothes which she didn't need anymore and so, I thought I'll just pop by her house and do what we always do - we exchanged our clothes! That's really one of the best part to cousin-hood, I swear.

In all sense of seriousness, I've also fallen deep in love with babydoll dresses.. I got a whole lot of them in my wardrobe (not a joke) and I just keep wearing them over and over again. They are like the perfect blend of smart casual and casual wear which I find them so incredibly easy to dress up and down in (tip: just with a change between flats and heels). Will definitely be sharing about it with you girls in my next post! Meanwhile, I'm off to catch some rest tonight and I hope you guys have a great mid-week ahead!

Long Lost

ESCAPADE  Been wondering long and staring hard about what I should blog about tonight.., after all it has indeed been some while since I blogged regularly. Is this what we all call the blogging slump? (As much as I hate to admit it.. I guess there's still some truth in that hehe) Been completely over-the-top kind of busy running for appointments.. attending workshops.. meeting my partners and squeezing in a little bit of extra time to catch up with friends. By the time I'm home it's usually close to midnight! To prevent my #FOMO syndrome lately (fear of missing out, that's what I call it) I even decided to quit checking my Instagram feed for a while - overwhelming feed of gorgeous pictures and that can be dangerously addictive if you ask me..

SOOOO, the big thing is that Singapore Blog Awards for 2014 is back!! That's also the one big thing that's hovering on my mind.. to join, or not to join? That is the burning question. The thing is, I've been putting two feet forward in focusing on Amway.. getting myself busy right up to my neck! From a very logical point of view it tells me to skip this year's Blog Awards...(plus, most bloggers may be keeping a lookout for past year's winners and I'm not going to lie that that's about a hundred times the original amount of stress..) 

Then again, part of me still feels very psyched to join in and to give myself a tall challenge. Ugh my heart and my mind is just totally going in different directions.. Guys I really need help and your opinions on this - how will you girls choose?

Everything else aside, here's more pictures that KJ and I took while we were in Boracay! That was the time when I still had my gradient blonde long locks and my sidecut.. (Not missing my hair length a whole lot, but it IS tough trying to grow out a sidecut good lord) Been meaning to blog about these for a long long while and I'm so happy that it's finally up on my blog! Who can ever resist the clear skies, white beaches and the pristine clear sea?
