Sponsored review: Kawaii Goods ♥

Hello everyone!
Today, I'm back after two months hiatus with a sponsored review for KawaiiGoods. Some of you might have heard of this brand before, some of you might have not. I am really thrilled to be offered the opportunity of modeling for Kawaiigoods & definitely even more excited when I received the dress a few weeks back. ☆(ゝω・)v

This post was dragged till today because I was busy preparing for my exams. To be sponsored clothing by brands must be a dream come true for some of us here, what's more, it's one with super cute prints on it! Who wouldn't be as over the rainbow as I am?

Sunday Folks at Chip Bee Gardens ☁

Hello everyone!
Two weeks back, Aaron and I went to try one of the best waffles in town as recommended by his friend. Sunday Folks! A localized specialty desserts café. It was located conveniently close to the Holland station so we didn't have to do much walking. And it's been awhile since we managed to find some time to chill at a cafe. We didn't take much pictures though*

DollyWink Guinness World Records Setting Event for "Most people applying False Eyelashes!" ◕‿◕

Hello everyone!  
It's been close to two months since I last updated. I've been putting all my focus into school & work and thus, resulting in this blog dying. And here I am today, finally updating! So few weeks back, Kai Yun and I went to sign up for the DollyWink Guinness World Records Setting event (20th Sep 2014).

To commemorate Dolly Wink's 5th anniversary, we will challenge to set a new world record for having the most amount of people applying false eyelashes simultaneously! (。^ ε ^。 )

High-tea at Brunetti ☼

Hello everyone!  
Last Saturday, my friends and I went to Brunetti to have some high-tea before dinner. The wide collection of cakes is to die for! There's simply too many to choose from. I've always wanted to try out their desserts ever since I took more notice of this shop at Tanglin Mall. Look at the total amount of desserts the three of us chose altogether!

Birthday Celebration at Basilico, Regent Hotel ♕

Happy birthday to me on 8th July ✌
My birthday usually falls on school days or days with events, but this year it wasn't! It was on a weekday and I'm really thankful for the fact that Aaron took a day off from army to celebrate this very day with me. I couldn't be more appreciative and happy at the same time for his actions.  This year, both of us celebrated at Basilico, located at Regent Hotel as suggested by Aaron since I wanted to go for some pasta.

Yukata shoot ❀

image Hello everyone! image
My apologies for a lack of updates! Recently, I've been really busy focusing on my bridging course and it was finally over last Wednesday! All that's left right now are the two exams in July! July also means that my birthday is arriving soon~ (ღ ˘ ω˘) So three weeks back, Kelly Konomi organized a yukata shoot and invited people to join in~ I knew I have to count myself in, because my yukata will definitely rot in the wardrobe forever if I don't do so.

Innisfree lip tint review: Daily lip routine

imageHello everyone!image
I have been trying to be more active in coming up with blog posts less related to food these days since I want the prime focus of my blog to still be fashion and beauty. Today I will be sharing my daily lip-make with lip tints from a popular South Korean cosmetics brand owned by Amore Pacific, Innisfree.

Innisfree (Hangul: 이니스프리) is a naturalism-oriented cosmetics brand created by Amore Pacific in year 2000 to help deliver the benefits of nature from the beautiful Jeju land for your beauty. Many popular and famous Korean celebrities, for example Lee Min Ho and Girl's Generation's Yoona, have also endorsed for this brand. Innisfree is also said to use only ingredients from Jeju Island, such as volcanic clay, canola, camellia and, of course, green tea. Doesn't that sound really reassuring?

Outfit: AMO x LDS collaboration ✞

Hello everyone!  
In order not to make my previous post too lengthy, I decided to separate the blog entries - one for the the patisserie experience and another just for my outfit. Aaron and I coincidentally spotted this perfect spot to have a quick shoot of my outfit after our time at Antoinette. Talk about luck!

Today's outfit is LDS, Love Drug Store x AMO  Let's go!!

High-tea at Antoinette Palais Renaissance ✞

Hello everyone!  
Can I say that last Saturday's trip down to Antoinette was more of a recce for my upcoming 22nd mini-birthday celebration to come in two months' time? The pavilion was already occupied by a group of friends celebrating one of their 21st birthday during tea time so it was basically a no-no entrance for walk-in customers like us. The reason why I've wanted to go to the branch located at Orchard Road, Palais Renaissance was mainly because of the pavilion.

UPDATE: Antoinette Palais Renaissance has been closed but you can still visit their other outlet. For more updates, you can check out their Facebook page here~

La Douceur Patisserie ✞

Hello everyone!  
I have recently returned back from Taipei and here I am, sharing with you one of the must-visit pâtisseries in Taipei, Taiwan - La Douceur Pâtisserie! Just so you do not know, I'm a fan of macarons and sweets!

I've always wanted to take a short afternoon retreat and experience how it feels like to have high tea in another country and with this pâtisserie being frequently on the search online, I know for sure that this is a place not to be missed during this Taipei trip. At the same time, Ladyironchef has always been a blog where I always browse around for places to dine in because of his generally unprejudiced opinions and that was another reason why I've arrived to my decision to visit La Douceur.

Brunch at Lola's cafe

Hello everyone!  
Recently, my boyfriend and I have been visiting various cafes and I always spend some time to pen down my thoughts to share with all of you. This time, we had our brunch over the weekend at the North-east part of Singapore - Lola's Cafe!

We reached Lola's at a late brunch timing and had to wait for approximately more than forty minutes for a seat. The cafe was full house and there was already a long queue of people in line before us. The queuing system at Lola's was quite unorganized and the rainy weather that day did not make it any better, be sure to head down earlier at around 10am to avoid the queues. But I guess good food makes people happier and the food did cheer us up instantly!

Hot chocolate for Aaron! - It's kinda powdery and not one of the smoothest he has drunk~

Caffe latte for me as usual ♥

My Breakfast butter croissant (S$13)

Trust me, this is the real deal! Croissant may be difficult to eat without creating a mess on the table but still, you just have to try this! It may seem like a typical club sandwich wrapped with egg, ham and bacon but the real deal lies in the croissant - it's honey glazed at the bottom. Not to forget that the honey glazed ham and bacon are really soft in texture. I'm in heaven

 Aaron's Avocado egg benedict (S$15)!

I took some bites from Aaron's dish and to my surprise, the Egg Benedict was not to my liking. I can't find out the reason why or perhaps I was just too occupied with my croissant.

I was actually really full after the "mains" but Aaron was so excited and he ordered two more desserts which he gobbled down mostly by himself.

Seasalt chocolate tart with coffee cream (S$5)

For those who love chocolate but have a fear that it might cause discomfort in your throat, you gotta try this! The chocolate is not only light in texture but the coffee cream and sea salt on top just compliment the overall taste as well.

Banana Earl Grey Tart (S$5)

This is a really unique tart where I've never tasted before in my life. The earl grey within gives a really moist feeling as well as its light fragrance as though you are literally drinking earl grey tea. 

Outfit of the day✞ 

High collar heart stamped top ✞ Dip Drops
Past season Car tee ✞ Dip Drops
Past season floral culotte ✞ Rosebullet
Unicorn Tote Bag ✞ Blanc Blanche 

I was kinda sick the previous two days so pardon my dressing.

I wouldn't mind travelling all the way to Kovan just for brunch and I definitely recommend you to head down to Lola's earlier to avoid the queuing. Do share with me your experience at Lola's Cafe!

Brunch: Available from 10am - 3pm
Dinner: Available from 6pm - 10pm

Spring & Summer 2014 Trends in Japan ♥

Hello everyone! 
I realise that I have been posting way too much about food these days. So it's time for me to get back on track onto the fashion side. Spring and Summer is all about going girly, incorporating pastel colours into your clothing and more. But there are bound to be certain prints that are popular and noticeable in this year's clothes design. They definitely have to be these two:

Gingham check & Cherries.

I've gotta say that gingham check (especially light blue ones) is one of my most favourite prints because it is just too cute and simple to coordinate with. To make gingham prints even more interesting, I have also seen designers collaborating them with flowers, cherries and so on for their spring/summer collection. So here are some of my recommendations of clothes that you would love with these prints inside! These are namely the Japanese brands I always look out for when hunting for new clothes.

LDS x AMO's But I'm a Cheerleader Dress

Aymmy's Soda Smily Romper

Swankiss's PV Cherry Soe bustier

Swankiss's Cherry embroidery sleeveless Blouse

Liz Lisa's Gingham skinny Pants

Ehyphen World Gallery Bonbon's Gingham check All-in-One

Ehyphen World Gallery Bonbon's Candy puff Cardigan

Ehyphen World Gallery Bonbon's Cherry One-piece Dress

EMODA's Pin up lady reversible Jacket

Tralala's Gingham x Rose Top

Tralala's Gingham x Rose Skirt

Amavel's Gingham Plaid x Heart embroidered Dress

I just wanna bring all these clothes back home!! 

Do share with me your thoughts about this year's Spring/Summer collection!

Thank you for reading!

[Media invitation] Japanese Sweets Collection at Isetan Westgate

Hello everyone!
It has been a great pleasure and honour for myself that despite starting out my humble little blog only over a short span of eight months, I have been invited by Huntington Communicaations for a food tasting session last Friday, 14th March (White day) at Isetan Westgate, Basement Level one where all the Japanese delights are available. From time to time, Isetan organises different Japanese food fairs, ranging from Hokkaido, Kyushuu and more. This is the very first time that Isetan has collaborated with East Japan Marketing & Communications (jeki) to bring in Japanese Sweets Collection organized by jeki.

Sushi buffet at Sushi Kanazawa

Hello everyone! ✞
It's been close to a week since I last blog and yes, it's another round of food experience. This time round, Aaron and I visited humble looking sushi bar by the name of Sushi Kanazawa, located at International Building. We have visited this place twice and this would mark our third one. Sushi Kanazawa was first recommended by his friend and we gave it a shot last year and we have since officially marked the restaurant as our favourite sushi buffet spot.

The concept here is that the chef can decide what you will have next.

Why do we like it so much? 
First, the sashimi are really of high quality, freshly cut and served on the spot. Second, the rice tastes really different and appetising as compared to other Japanese restaurants out there which might have a slightly too vinegary taste (The rice here is said to be of high quality Japanese grains!). The buffet usually kick starts with a dish of Sashimi Moriawase - salmon, squid, tuna and mackerel.  

Next was salmon sashimi sliced into even cubes paired with ponzu sauce which reminds me of the beef carpaccio from En Japanese dining bar. Mine was served in a little seashell plate. How cute!

Behold the chef's recommendation! Amaebi Mentaiko Aburi! It's beyond heavenly, the mentaiko and amaebi is torched and charred which gives it a strong aroma and it melts literally in your mouth when you place the whole thing inside your mouth. I would have to describe it as umamigasm, yes! So good that I had to order more! The Unagi Aburi was also one of the highlights of our time here~ ↓

Some delicious fruit jelly to end off the sumptuous buffet!

Outfit of the day 

Jetamie set (Hoodie + Skirt) ✞ Ehyphen World Gallery Bonbon
Sweetheart red gingham with bunny Choker ✞ Cutecankill
Holly heart earrings ✞ Cutecankill

I had a change of hairstyle because Aaron mentioned that the Paris inspired Jetamie set would go better with twin braids instead of twintails. What's your view?
