Attended the Phillip Wain and Vanity Trove Tummy Taming party some time back and I brought a girlfriend, Anna along!

 

We has this fun activity where we had to complete diff challenges in order to collect stamps for our passport! Once we've completed, we were eligible to exchange for diff vouchers!

Both of us did badly for this station! 🙁 our skin are severely dehydrated. Oh no! Totally need to do better and take care of our skin!

They also showed us some tummy slimming exercises and the very interesting TRX machine!

 

We were also shown various treatments such as the Bodycon treatment, Lipo 8 etc. Both Anna and i completed our tasks and we walked away with the Lipo 8 voucher!!!!!

Awesome! I also brought home the Vanity Trove box which were packed with awesome items!

 

 

Thank you Vanity Trove and Phillip Wain for the invite! We both had a great time! 😉

As you guys know, i have the Outfit of the Day entries... Decided to introduce Lookbook entries where i feature pictures of a specific brand...

In this case, i will like to introduce Smitten by Jipaban!

Really comfy clothes, a great variety for all occasions! Here are some of my Smitten outfits!

I adore the Lita Cut Out Frock in this lovely coral shade. Extremely flattering! Gives me a deceptively slim waist 😡

Ching chong boy calls this the peekaboo dress.

This simple dress is suitable for Singapore's crazy weather. Extremely airy and comfy!

 

Paired the bunny tank with the floral white shorts! Never thought i could fit into a size S again! :p

 

I tucked in the floral tank into my high waist shorts here. You could wear it as a dress but it's too short for my liking.

 

I paired my chiffon victorian tunic top with jeggings here during my trip to Genting with LadyIronChef and other Nuffnang bloggers.

I will be posting more Lookbook entries soon! Keep a lookout for them! In the meantime, go get Smitten! 😉

As some of you guys may know, tomorrow is my engagement shoot. Wondering what's an engagement shoot? It's basically a couple shoot before their wedding. It's also commonly known as a pre-wedding shoot. Same difference 🙂

I found out that my colleague's friend is a freelance photographer who specialises in engagement shoots. We met up and discussed and I liked his pictures and style and we decided to make arrangements for the shoot 2 months later.

Time passes by realllly fast and the shoot is now tomorrow!

We have made plans to visit two outdoor locations and one indoor location. Ching Chong Boy and I rented a car and I booked a Makeup artist. Will share their contacts after the shoot 🙂

I took some pictures of the items we were preparing and decided to share it with you guys!

Mad love this bling gown with the sweetheart neckline. Pity it's more creamish peach than white.. 🙁

It's amazing how the universe works. I was just grumbling about my clothes not fitting me well and tadah! Miuee Wholesale approached me and asked if I could help review some of their outfits!

Needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity.

1) I need new clothes desperately
2) I need CHIO clothes desperately
3) I love clothes!

Miuee Wholesale should be a very familiar name to all of you shopaholics. I bought plenty of clothes (including some couplewear) from Miuee.com before and they have always amazed me with their friendly service.

This has to be my favourite item so far! This royal blue dress costs only $18.20! Comes in a lovely green version too! I am definitely wearing this to the next "posh" blogger event or dinner I attend! Material is good and I LOVE the cutting!

The long sleeve off shoulder dress is so versatile for every occasion. I can picture wearing it for clubbing, movies, work etc. As you can see from the pictures above, just pulling up the sleeves and neckline, makes it look different! Accessorize this $16 dress with some bright necklaces and you are good to go! 😉

Here are some of the promotions that they're having currently!
