Grooming.

Finally paid visits to my hair and nail sponsors this month. 
Have not been doing so for the past few months because I got too caught up in work.
Started preparing for the shifting of office since March,
finally shifted in May,
settled down in June,
and now it's halfway through July.

Work load has also doubled this year.
But we have not increased our head count at the office.
So that makes us twice as busy.

It's all good though.
Being busy.

Just that I totally neglected my personal grooming and had to live with my ugly bare nails and unkempt hair for the past few months.

I now see why some girls spend so much (both time and money) on grooming every month.
It really makes a huge difference!
I feel so much happier when I have nice nails and hair.
It also increases my confidence when I have to attend events and meet new people.
It is also much easier to take OOTDs with my new hair!

Here's making a mental note to visit my sponsors on a regular basis!!
(Read on because I have awesome promotions to share!)

EWW.
Look at my hair.
Just how flat and shapeless can it get???

Long fringe really does not suit me because my face shape is naturally oval,
and it does not frame my face well.
So I told my stylist at COVO to snip it off and give me a short(er) side swept fringe which is easy for me to maintain.

My hair was not layered previously so I told Yoshi (my stylist) to give it some layers this time round.

So pleased with how the haircut turned out!
Immediately took selfies in my new hair and sent them to Thom.
Hahaha.

Also got treatment done because Yoshi told me that my hair was too dry.
As usual,
the treatment was so extremely relaxing and calming that it almost lured me to sleep.
Also love that the hair stylists at COVO are always gentle with handling my hair during washes,
unlike some other salons that I have been to previously.
Maybe it's a Japanese thing?
Hahaha.

The good news is,
COVO hair salon is running a promotion for new customers!
You get 20% off all hair services (except products) when you visit COVO from now till end September 2014.
How awesome is that!

If you're looking to get a good haircut,
I highly recommend that you give COVO a visit.
They also have really great service.
I went half an hour early for my appointment this time due to miscommunication,
yet they still attended to me in the quickest time possible.

Weekends.

Back to blog again!

How was your weekend?

Here's a short summary of what I did over the weekends,
and some of my favourite outfit photos from past few weeks! 

Got myself a new camera veryyyy recently and am still in the stage of getting used to it.
Photos under Saturday and Sunday are taken by the new camera Sony RX100 ii!

Got invited by Nuffnang, 8 Days and Raffles City for a food trail on Saturday.
Was pretty excited and did not have any breakfast on the day itself because I foresee that I would stuff myself silly at the event.
Brought Sissy along as my plus one and we got to try food from 4 participating restaurants/eateries:
Prego, Simply Wrapps, Poulet and Bangkok Jam.
More details of the event on my Dayre post on 12 July!

We were so, so full by the end of the food trail.

Being a food blogger is such hard work.
Having to churn out food reviews and maintaining their waistlines (or not) at the same time.
So difficult.


Sunday

Visited Jessica, talented baker behind Shiberty Bakes which I'm sure all if not most of you know.
:)
Passed her several TTR items and got to steal some of her yummy macarons.
Hehe.
So good to finally meet her in real life too!!

Did a longer version of our All Day Culottes because I needed to own a pair of palazzo pants.

Get Lucky Midi Skirt in Red and Peach.

This comes in 11 whooping colours at the moment.
LOL.
Overkill much.
I'm still loving it though!!

And if you're sharp-eyed enough,
you'll spot the Cooper Cut-in Top in a new colour.
Which means we're going to bring it back to TTR really, really soon.

The earlier version we did for this had an inner layer which ended below bust.
However, I found it really annoying and therefore we decided to extended the inner layer all the way.
So it is now 2 full length layers!
Yay!

We also got carried away when choosing colours for this top.
"Never mind la anyway this is basic we can do more colours!" was what I said to Jolene when we were scrutinising the colour chart.
Hahaha.



Will be back soon to either post a review on the Sony RX100 ii or my Korea trip haul!
Let me know which you want to see first!
;)
