Fashion @ Singapore Yatch Show

Pictures by KJ
AN EYE-OPENER So last weekend KJ and I kinda spent our Saturday noon at the Singapore Yatch Show getting swooned over and over again at all the magnificent and beautiful yatches on show. If there's something like getting too much a day, this has to be it. We saw so many gorgeous speedboats.. and guess what? They're even cheaper than our COE. (Bet you can't make sense of it too) Now, can someone tell me how are we or how do we even compare a pristine white boat to a piece of paper that entitles us to own a car? That just leaves me feeling a little bit flabbergasted..

Still, we had a fun time walking about and hopping onto the pier to get a closer look at all the beautiful fleet of boats. (The only pity was that most of them were closed for private events.. what a bummer!) Our main highlight at the show was to attend White Moon's "Summer Pea" collection's fashion show and to take a closer look at their clutch bags and jewellery pieces - all beautifully exquisite in its way with a little touch of oriental flair. I think that it's truly inspiring how Eileen Moon, founder of White Moon, is already a owner of her own label. Many of us often dream of designing and creating our own fashion muses, but just exactly how many of us do we really go all out to achieve it? That's worth a penny for a thought..

Meanwhile, here's a quick update for the mid-week and I hope you guys enjoy these pictures that we took at the Singapore Yatch Show. I'm all prepped up to head for bed so wishing all of you a sweet goodnight.

Knitted Nails | THE NAIL SHOPPE

FOR THE ROMANTICS  If there's something like a ranking for different types of nail art, these three dimensional knitted nails would probably rank #1 on my list for the prettiest design hands down. Having not touched super girly stuff like padicures and manicures for the past six years, I'm starting to find myself being completely amazed by all the different types of nail art techniques that I'm learning about each time I head down to The Nail Shoppe (also my super awesome nail sponsor!).

Really, it's quite a strange feeling to be exact with you.. I can't believe that there's so much more to the world of manicures. Well I mean, all along I thought it had only involved painting a layer of color over your nails and that's that, you know? Nothing like gelish nails, acrylic extensions, or ph balancing bonding agents ever existed in my dictionary. So I believe you girls can definitely tell how I'm going "Oh what's this?"... "That's cute! What is that for?"... "Why are we doing this?".. (and God knows how annoying I must be ha ha ha). Plus, imagine how curious I was when I had my first ever padicure done this time round!! I totally had no idea what to expect and guess what? It was an eye opening experience (come on, it's my first time after all....) and indeed a super pampering session for my tired little feet hehe.

My current obsession right now has to stay this set of pretty knitted nail art which Amie did for me. Just couldn't get them out of my mind when I first saw these on Pinterest. How could you possibly resist them? They look so incredibly feminine yet edgy.. simple yet sweet where the design is just so endearing to look at. Though it looks, the process was nothing but meticulous work - Amie had to slowly build up the gel in order to achieve the three dimensional effect while curing them with UV treatment multiple times.

Designs and nail-art expertise aside, one thing that I appreciate sincerely from the bottom of my heart is how Camie is really committed to bringing in the best products for The Nail Shoppe and her customers. While I was there this time round, I noticed that they have specially brought in this whole range of Angel Pro Gel Polishes. As a matter of fact, this special range of gel polishes are free Formaldehyde, Toluene or DBP, and neither were they tested on animals. The best part has to be how they lasts for weeks (you girls already can tell from these pictures, they were just taken earlier on today - which has been about 2 weeks since my session) without any signs chipping or smudging. During my previous session I've also seen Camie bringing in a complete new set of foot care products that are especially meant to be safe for pregnant mummies and customers with health issues such as diabetes and etc. Her attention to these little (but very important) details are what that sets them apart from any other nail salons and it is what that touches me.
