Snip Snip!

Sometimes I get utterly terrible days plagued with terrible situations, and sometimes, I randomly get the most amazing luck to counter-balance the bad.

I was having a rough day at work when I decided to meet the Bf on a whim, was browsing at the nearby Kinokuniya shop when I was spotted by Tomoko. That was how I became an accidental hair model/ willing victim for Tomoko to practise her hairdressing skills on. It was only much later did I realise she worked for the amazing hair salon, Kizuki+LIM.

After letting her go wild on my hair, I walked out feeling happier than most other salons I've been to, and with great hair that has lasted. Unfortunately, I didn't take many pics of the place, and though I wasn't asked to review the salon, I enjoyed myself so much that I just gotta write about it!  

I got lost finding the salon, but that's probably because I hardly ever explore Raffles Hotel without good reason
(Pic from :

Super cool architecture! Different areas of the salon were separated by these geometric shaped "walls"/ pathways
(Pic from:

Their reception counter and the place where they stowed my bag before my haircut
(Pic from:

Their washing area with super comfortable automated reclining seats. It's really great for me as due to my short stature, I usually end up shuffling myself awkwardly on those flat chairs for my head to reach the sink. With these chairs, I no longer need to look like a earthworm on drugs and am able to maintain my dignity
(Pic from:

The area where I got my hair cut and styled. The chairs are movable and so is the wall, allowing the staff to play around with the floor space depending on their clients
(Pic from:

Waiting for my haircut! As you can see, my hair looked rather heavy and old-fashioned with the thick, grown out perm.

Haircut after I reached home and being pummelled by strong winds. Still looked good!

Managed to take a pic with the lovely Tomoko! Thank you so much for the haircut!

My hair has remained rather low maintenance and looks good styled or not and even looks decent if I go to bed with my hair still wet from my shower. People have been complimenting my haircut and even the Bf says it looks good, which is rare since he hardly mentions much bout my hairstyles. 

Will definitely return, as a paying customer the next time. 

On a side note, I left my last job. Things weren't working out so I'm looking for another. It sucks quite abit and I'm hoping my next job will work out, but at least the experience has helped me open potential new career options. Lets see how things go in the future I guess.

Party, Concert, Shopping & Valentine's Day

February has been a busy month for me, so I haven't been able to update this blog much. Nearly every weekend was packed with stuff so I have compiled them into this quick post. Will have a more updated post soon.

Went window shopping with my mom and ended up walking away with a pair of Vivenne Westwood shoes that were on sale. Hmm....
Striped top: Can't remember
Skirt: Lowry's Farm
Scarf: The Body Shop
Satchel: Taobao
Boots: Payless

Attended Daisy's 21st birthday party. Spent the entire night clubbing then chilling in the cramped hotel hotel room while gossiping and waiting till morning to grab some amazing Tim Sum. Really fun night with some great guy friends.

Attempted to straighten my permed locks to see how long my hair had grown out. I liked the semi-wavy look that resulted.
Outfit: Top: Lip Service
Jeans: Uniqlo
Heels: Bought in KL
Necklace: Vivienne Westwood

Picture of the people at the party. Really fun night though I think I'm getting bit old for clubbing.

Attended the amazing Spirited Away - The Music of Joe Hisaishi concert. His music always stirs memories of childhood dreams, innocence and feelings of gentleness. The Singapore Symphony Orchestra did an excellent job of performing his music. 

Lots of friends attended the event, but most of us bought our tickets separately, so many of them were dotted all around the concert hall. Luckily I bought a bunch of tickets for some people, so we could sit altogether. Also brought my two little Jiji toys and Tessie brought her Calcifer toy.

I wore a somewhat jumbled together "cosplay" version of Kiki, or at least, how I think her wardrobe will look like when she's older. 
Tunic: Marks & Spencer (linen & cotton mix with a weaved design on the front and brass coloured buttons)
White Jeans: Uniqlo (a more modest, grown up version of her white shorts)
Satchel : Taobao (a structured version of her bag)
Red heels: Salvatore Ferragamo (I actually doubt she's the kind who will wear heels unless compelled to, but I don't have red ballet flats and my shorter, round toed heels need reheeling, so these pumps had to do)
Ribbon Hairband: Taobao (her signature ribbon hairband in better quality materials)

Celebrated Valentine's day with the Bf with a sweet date. We had lunch at this lovely, french inspired restaurant called Poulet before watching The Lego Movie. Cute and inspiring movie with some serious animation with the use of lego bricks.

Black lace bustier: H&M
Tulle skirt: Forever21
Jacket: Jouetie
Beret: Acessorize
Socks: Cosmode
Pink studded garter: Creepyeha
Necklace: Osewaya

Some stuff happened recently in my life, so I'll be sorting them out for abit. I will definitely update as soonas I can while I sort these issues out. So apologies for the late post again, hope you guys understand.
