Gorgeous earrings from F21. They’re a little on the dramatic side, but what I love most about them is that they have a completely matte finish, which ups the glamazon factor by 10 fold.
Also, this looks a little weird and not appetizing, but this is my current favorite ice cream. It’s Thai Coconut (add 50cents for Honeycomb), from 320 Below. It’s light and refreshing, and the best part is that it doesn’t leave that horrible cloying feeling on your tongue as most heavy ice creams do. Super fantastic, I tried their salted caramel which was pretty good too, but nothing beats Thai Coconut with Honeycomb (awesome crunch) on a super hot day. It’s a little pricy at $6.30 (-$0.50 if you don’t want to honeycomb but you’re missing out) per cup, but it’s SOOOOOOOO GOOD T_T ! Do try it out whenever you have the chance! The one I usually go to is the branch at Tampines 1 Basement, promise you won’t regret it :D !
On a random note, I did my very first studio shoot today. Turned out better than I thought it would, but of course that may just be an illusion cause’ I hadn’t had the chance to open the pictures on photoshop for editing. Fingers crossed that they’ll turn out as gorgeous as they did on my DSLR screen! Sneaks tomorrow if I can manage it :D !
Spent today working on a blogger’s logo, with the help of awesome flower-child Lydia. I’ve never met a girl who loves flowers THIS much. Basically bought bunches of flower to dismantle (to my amusement and her dismay), scattered them here and there. I was essentially disemboweling flowers and throwing their maimed bits around. Psychopath much? The end result turned out better than I expected, with the help of trusty photoshop and illustrator. Can you guess which parts aren’t real flowers :D ? Hiakhiakhiak photoshop master is I.
On a shittier note, I have to refund/replace 40 watches because one of the backordered watch faces went completely out of stock without my knowledge. Really glad that most of the customers were very understanding and kind about it; the process was almost completely fuss free! So happy to have reasonable customers :’) !
Okay and now on to completely unrelated but awesome news. I’m having 2 flea booths this weekend (22nd & 23rd Feb) at:
1. Public Garden Flea (National Library, 1-7pm)
2. Three Blind Mice Flea (F1 Pit Building, 11am-8pm)
For the latter (Three Blind Mice Flea), I’ll be bringing all the Forever21, ASOS, UO, Topshop, Karmaloop, Hype etc etc etc stuff to the flea! So expect Flea prices, everything will be $20 and below – mostly $10-$15, nego if you get more – so drop on by to loot them all ok? I’m trying to clear everything I can so that I can buy a ton more when I go to the US in April :D !
Please drop by to support k, plus you come see for yourself and verify that I’m not (completely) dead LOL sorry I feel kinda horrible for not updating for 2 weeks but I was really trying not to die from being sick lol. More updates tomorrow :D !
Nice colour and texture, comes with adjustable straps as well. Really diggin the “dual pouch” feel of the inside – 1 side is a zippered pocket with an additional phone pocket, the other main pocket is not zippered but has another zippered pocket inside. What the hell? Pocket-ception (HA HA HA) ?! Lotsa space to stash all your stuff though. Handles are nice and shiny, not sure if the coating will come off with future use and abuse. All in all, a good sized daily bag :D !
On a completely unrelated note, hope y’all had a blast for CNY! Personally I just ate a lot, gambled minimally (*sad face*) and cooked large amounts of rice (for family dinners) LOL. Nothing too exciting going on nowadays so I’ll ttyl when I have more to ramble on about! Have a kickass week ahead :D !
This is why I’m the best girlfriend ever. Partly because ASOS is a little bitch and keeps selling cheapish but awesome shirts lol. Can safely say that my bf is better dressed than I am. I got myself a pair jelly JuJu Sandals too! They look cute, hope they’ll be comfy :D ! Snakeskin crossover bag in blue reptile print, I really quite like the texture and color. I’m trying to add pops of colour to my mostly black/navy/blue/funeral-type outfits lol.
F21 everything; all day err’ day HAHAHA! Can’t wait for all of them to arrive!
Hmkay I know cheenapok new year is about to start, and I’ve yet to make my resolutions. This year, I will take my commitments more seriously than ever. Goals for the new year:
Hit 6000 Likes on the Nakedglory Fb Page
Hit 10000 Followers on the Nakedglory Instagram Account
Save at least $xxxx for my US trip
Try to get my license (wtf 25 years old still no license how can)
Travel to at least 3 countries
Get my NG accounts in order (LOL)
Stop taking shit from irresponsible/stupid people
With regards to the last one, 2013 was just a tumultuous ride of shitty clients and shitty people to work with. I never imagined that people could be so irresponsible and just generally gross. I tried keeping quiet and pushing gently, but it didn’t work. It’s all work related, hence I tried to be as civil as possible. No fucking longer. I’m going to push as fucking hard as I can because I have other people, other clients and customers to answer to. I’m not going to just sit there passively anymore. I’m fucking 25 this year, I don’t have time for your irresponsible shit and attitude that makes me, my brand or my company look bad. Enough is enough.
Hmkay rant over. The rest of the goals seem relatively reachable. This past month has been quite good to me, I honestly can’t wait for mahjong and gambling this CNY! Super love to gamble, in a non–gambling-addict kinda way lol. Hmkay back to work, ttys!
Took a short trip to Malaysia with the bf & his family. My first trip “overseas” with all of them in one car. It was about 85% fun and 15% massively harrowing. The driving was .. well safe to say it literally gave me nightmares. I woke up twice that night because I dreamt I’d been in a car crash @_@. On a more positive note, LOOK AT ALL THAT CHEWING GUM!?!? Possible enough to drown in.
RIDICULOUSLY good buns. Randomly came across these while following our noses, bought one to try and ended up buying an entire box. THAT GOOD. Super love!
Sat at the wheel while his parents went to buy stuff to prevent the car from being towed -_-. Also, got this fossil Pineapple charm for super cheap!!!! Gonna introduce charms to Nakedglory for further customization of watches :D !
Had better-than-average seafood at a place that took us 1hr+ to locate and one of the best coconuts I’d ever tasted. As you can see, the bf’s face is almost completely inside the damned coconut HAHAHA #glutton
All in all it was a generally pleasant experience, but the driving was bloody terrifying. NEVER AGAIN.
On a less tense note, this past weekend, we were invited to set up at the Public Garden booth at Citylink Mall. I say booth in the loosest sense of the word, cause once we stepped in we were pretty much blown away. Felt so much like we had a little space in a retail store, it was pretty inspiring. Pretty much the most excited I’d ever been to set up haha!
Drove me a little mad trying to find pieces that fit together for our display, check out those planks I salvaged! A furniture shop was throwing them out and the nice foreign workers let me pick out a few :D ! My only regret is that all my wooden pieces are not of the same colour and were therefore not as cohesive as a whole, but I know i’m just nitpicking.
Table cloth from Ikea, random geometric shaped table stand I got for 50 bucks at a vintage store. They were surprised I wanted it because quite frankly they couldn’t figure out what it was. Neither could I, to be honest! I just thought woo this might look good with a coat of matte white paint HAHAHAHA! See?? Being a hoarder has it’s uses. Sometimes.
Just wanted to say thank you all for the amazing response! We literally had less than 10 pieces of jewelry left for our Foundry & Co collection, and I sold more than 150+ watches in the span of those 2 (super long) days! It was amazing and truly motivational, to feel like one day we really could have our own physical space :’) ! Thank you all once again T_T.
Hmkay it’s 2am now, I need to go grab some shuteye before my brain starts shutting down lol. Have a good week ahead, everyone :D !
