Another week has gone by and we are down to one week before I leave for Chicago! At this point, I’m not sure if I would get around to editing and posting all peektures from Bangkok and winter in the US, but I will always update with my crappy iPhone peektures. :P
So, I currently have a coffee dilemma. My choice of coffee is Nescafe’s Cafe Menu in Vanilla Latte. It’s perfect for me, I lovelovelove the taste and the caffeine content isn’t high. I brought 10 boxes (containing 10 sachets each) to the US when I last went and I had some leftover when I came back. I recently finished all of them, and was searching everywhere to stock up again, to no avail! Not sure what is going on, but only Hazelnut Latte could be found. That’s what I’m drinking now, but I have not given up on my Vanilla Latte yet. I wrote to Nescafe on Facebook, did not get a reply. I will ring up their Singapore office on Monday.
Hazelnut Latte is not too bad, but my first choice is still Vanilla Latte. :(
My Laduree macarons have been slowly savoured, with much enjoyment. :) Yes, I work on a very messy desk. I like to think of it as an organised mess.
I also busted out a new mug to use. I have all four of these — red, blue, green, orange. The red is my favourite and blue is my second favourite. Best mugs EVER.
I have to say, the Hazelnut Latte has a nicer, more consistent foam than the Vanilla one does. Not sure why this is so.
Early last week, Kate and I went out to Gardens by the Bay to catch the last few days of Tulipmania. And this was what I wore.
White tee with lace detail from Promod (few years ago), white denim shorts with embroidery from Bershka (current season), Carmen Harness Tall boots from Frye, Dreamweaver Tassel Bag from Spell and the Gypsy Collective.
And this is bB out and about with my Sony NEX.
I have a tonne of peektures taken at Gardens by the Bay on the Sony NEX. We’ll see if I can get around to processing them at some point, maybe I will do that before I deal with the Bangkok and US peektures? If anyone has any preference, please feel free to comment. :)
After an awesome time at the Gardens, I carried on with my summer shopping at Ion Orchard (again).
I was in a tulip-y mood, and this skirt reminded me of tulip petals! Loved the waist details as well, and it actually stays on my skinny ass. Bought it. :D From Pull and Bear.
This one was very nice but literally falling off my non-existent hips. Passed on it!
I luuuuurve cutwork detailing on clothes. Have not seen many lately that are nicely done… Grabbed it. :D From Pull and Bear.
This dress was hanging on the mannequin and I really liked it. Had to beg the store manager to take it off the mannequin so I could try it. Sadly, it didn’t work for me. The armholes were massive and I didn’t like it enough to invest in alteration fees on it. The material was wonderfully soft though.
And then, I popped into Topshop. I hadn’t been in this store since many years ago, when I used to stock up on their basic round-neck tees. For some reason, they stopped making these perfect tees and so I stopped going to them. I happened to walk by, saw a few Coachella inspired dresses and so I went in.
This dress had very interesting details on the bodice, subtly sexy. But a pity it was too big for me, though it’s not obvious in the peektures. I could grab about two inches of loose fabric around the waist. Passed on it.
And then! I found the perfect bikini! So, so happy! This awesome little find made my foray into Topshop entirely worthwhile. The top ties at the back and neck for a perfect fit. And I just love the crochet effect. LOVE! Sorry, no bum shots. Only one person gets to see those. ;)
I found this old peekture from many years ago, when I went to Tioman with my Architecture classmates. My good friend, Clay, took this of me. Still one of my favourite travel peektures ever.
More boot news! I bought my very first pair of Old Gringo boots! Old Gringo boots are like works of art. I scored these (Grace in black) on 50% off Amazon. They have arrived in Chicago. I cannot wait to rip the box open! Let’s hope I got the right size.
Starting to tidy up miscellaneous things around my desk in preparation of leaving, and I took peektures of my souvenirs from Vienna and Paris. These two adorable postcards were from Vienna. I have a soft spot for creatures with bug eyes. @.@ And I love octopuses and owls! <3
My Laduree charm from Paris. I hesitated a little getting this, because I have stopped using charms on my bags, but it was pretty cute. And I love macarons, so… :)
There was a scorching hot day when I perspired all day while working at home. And in the evening, it suddenly became much cooler. I still felt very warm and sticky, and overcompensated by taking a cold shower, after which I sat under the A/C for a little while. Hence… I caught a cold. LOL! Yes, I can be pretty stupid like that. Took some Airborne and slept in the next day. Was right as rain after that. :)
Yesterday was another errand day. I had planned to go for all my salon appointments, grab some stuff, and go home after that. Brought my beloved Voodoo Crochet Tassel Bag from Spell and the Gypsy Collective.
I took my outfit peektures in this adorable fitting room in a store at Ion Orchard. Isn’t it pretty?
Plain white tee with elastic waist from Promod (few years ago), tulip skirt from Pull and Bear, Carmen Harness Tall boots from Frye, Voodoo Crochet Tassel Bag from Spell and the Gypsy Collective.
After braving the queue for the fitting room, I snagged a few dresses from H&M. They definitely need to be hemmed. LOL.
Kate came out to join me and we went to Bershka again, where I nabbed a beautiful white maxi. No peekture of it yet, but rest assured you will be seeing it in Chicago. Those of you who are following this blog for the fashion peektures, I have good news for you. There will be lots of proper summer action peektures taken outdoors, of my outfits daily, because someone likes to go fishing. I would even be staying next to a lake. :D
ps. I think I have enough dresses now. What do you think? LOL!
Have a good weekend, everyone! <3
