A Timeless Piece

{ Crop Top from Nastygal, Skorts (coming up in my new blogshop), Shoes and Bag from Topshop, Outwear from Tobi, Necklace from Online, Cuff from Marc by Marc Jacobs }

Here's another sneak peek of a must-have piece that I'll be bringing into my upcoming blogshop! I have been wearing these skorts almost everyday lately. They're comfortable and have a stretchy waistband on the back so I wouldn't have to worry about it being tight after dinner. Plus, it's a basic that I could pair up with almost anything! It's a timeless piece to have.
Excited yet?

Anyway, I've been looking through my past photos and realized that my boldness in the way I style my clothes has really toned down quite a lot. I used to dress up so much more, trying things out of my comfort zone. But after time, since school started (I guess) I started sticking to apparels more on the safer side. Okay yes, I can't possibly wear my killer heels and dress up all fashionista-like in school. But what I'm saying is, even when the holidays came I still stuck to dressing quite the same, comfortably in my little safe zone. I want to start trying to explore my style once more and branch out to being, and dressing more bold.

The bad part is.. School just started so I wouldn't be able to do that often until the holidays.... I'm sorry for my mindless rambling; but yes. Basically, do expect my style in fashion to be more bold once the holidays are here! (I'll really try!)

The Slouchy Pant

My first video is up on YouTube!
Have you guys seen it?


So I visited J7image to get my hair done again because I didn't think the blonde would be appropriate for BA + I didn't really fancy it. Jayden was my hairstylist for the day and he did a great job! I love my new hair :)

Renee came to meet me at FEP after I did my hair and I went to do my brows at a random store. Drew in my brows for the first time in ages and I think it looks much better! I should start drawing them more often, my brows are always so naked.... What do you guys think?

{ Hat & Jacket from Bugis, Necklace, Crop Top, Heels & Bag from Topshop, Belt from Bangkok, Slouchy Pants (coming up in my new blogshop)}

I'm in love with this absurdly comfortable Slouchy Pants! Will be bringing them in for you guys in my upcoming blogshop which will probably launch some time in November! In the meantime.. You can follow us on Instagram (altho there's nothing up yet...) @thenakedpursuitsg

The BF's Birthday

Today was a really long, hasty, and exhausting day for me. But it was definitely worth it. :)
So I woke up at 10am, got ready, and rushed out of my house. I tricked Darren into thinking I was at school but no - I was actually travelling back-and-forth getting everything ready! So I traveled from Lorong Chuan to Yishun to collect something needed for his birthday, then traveled all the way down to Kent-Ridge to get another thing. From there, I took the train to Holland Village where I got the balloons and then I traveled to Singapore Poly to surprise him! I reached the school at approximately 1pm, which was the time he ended class~


After I had lunch with him & friends, I lied to him again (lying is fine when it's to the other's benefit ok :p) and said I had to rush back to school for a lecture, but I actually had to rush home to prepare for his big surprise. I was heading towards the MRT when he said, "Aren't you taking bus? There's a straight bus to your school". I replied with an 'ooooooh ya', hugged him goodbye, and hid behind the pillar until he left then sneaked to the MRT hehe

Rushed all the way back home and prepared the lights for his birthday which took me agessssss to do. Below is one of the type of lights that I got from Taobao just for this special occasion!

Can you imagine how pretty it would all look when it's lit? :')
So I brought it to the balcony and switched it on and it looked soooo good. But y'know what? It DIED after 10 minutes.

It was actually expensive so FML, I was so pissed. But anyway moving on, I prepared the food! Yes, I cooked. I met up with a friend beforehand and he taught me how to cook just for Chan's birthday! It was actually the first time in my entire life cooking a legit meal (not counting all the maggi mee & oven/toaster/microwave-ready food) and I swear, it turned out super good!!





Chef Young hard at work

I only prepared the prawns before I had to rush to shower and head out towards Chinatown for a meeting with the Mousetrap team!
When I arrived back home afterwards, it was already about 7+pm. Rush rush rush!!!!

so glam

I also added Parsley on top to finish the look but I was too in a rush to take a photo :(

Delicious S'mores for dessert!

Once I was done doing up all the food, I hurried to set the balcony with everything and waited for the birthday boy to come over.
I made him think that I made reservations at a fancy restaurant and that I was running late thus asking him to come over to my place first to accompany me while I got ready.

Selfie #2

Took a few photos before pretending to rush upstairs to pack my bag. I was actually lighting up all the candles! Called him up a little while later frantically asking him to help me find something and then when I "found it", I wished him a happy birthday and said some other stuff and then brought him to my father's balcony(got a favor from the pops and he went out for the evening).
And..... VoilĂ ! The Romantic Candle-lit Dinner :)

Ignore the lame appetizer, it was to trick him into thinking that's all for dinner HAHA
I ate two nuggets only tho 'cause I was super full from all the food-testing while cooking.

My boyfriend's a designer, so on top of everything, I got him a sketch book and decorated a few pages at the back, here's a sneak peek of 1/3rd of it!

Sorry my art skills aren't all that good HAHAHA well I tried :')
And that marks the end of my surprise for him! Happy 19th birthday baby, I really hope you loved everything like how I love you - dayumn, that was smooth ;) ok bye everything is in the letter alr
