New favourite; Spathe Public House

Living by my new motto; 
'Life only comes around once, so do whatever makes you happy, and be with whoever makes you smile'
I love having brunch on weekends, especially with my girlfriends aka monsterz
If you dont already know, the 5 of us call ourselves monsterz ever since the bkk trip together earlier this year lol.
(thou we are not really recognized and the boys call us 'dinosaurs' instead haha)
I kinda miss the good old days we spent in bkk, just the 5 of us
Everyday was just pure happiness. 
It's no longer easy to arrange a day out all together especially when we have our own committments now. It takes 2 hands to clap, things will only work out if everyones put in effort to. 
I really treasure these girls and hope to grow old with them like those in Sex and the city! 

On a brighter note, we met up for a short brunch last Sunday. 
Wearing the upcoming Saunter Cut-out Top in white
Perfect loose fitting top for laid back days!

How it looks like when tucked out! 
The launch at 830pm later btw :) 

Visited Spathe Public House located at the shophouses along Mohd Sultan.
8 Mohamed Sultan Road #01-01 
Initially we made reservations for outdoor seats but it was pouring like crazy so we settled inside. 
The rain only stopped after we finished our food, oh well.. 

The rustic interior with graffiti art over the brick walls

4 of us ordered similar mains, it was just poached eggs with hollandaise sauce with different toppings!
And when it was served, we were busy comparing our poached eggs to see if there were runny enough and not fully cooked. To our pleasant surprise, all 4 plates of eggs were very nicely done :) 

I particularly love the smoked salmon which I thought was pretty fresh and the toast was also well toasted. The hollandaise sauce reminds me of the one I had at Penny University, very flavourful! 

Eggs Mushroom $16

 Eggs Royale $18

 Eggs benedict $17

 The garlic fries $8, was nothing short of amazing. Every stick was strongly infused with garlic. 
In fact, I would prefer this to the truffle fries anytime! 
It was super addictive I think I had more than half the basket.

 I would gladly visit Spathe for brunch again for its delicious food at reasonable pricing. 
I'm already planing for a return with my family :) 

 Ootd is necessary especially when they are both decked in Ohvola label! 
On Desiree, Kara Crop Top with Sans Embossed Skirt
On Geraldine, Le Baroque Dress black 

Friends for a decade and counting!


The other day when I wore Hampstons Playsuit in black
Love the quirky aztec print because I don't really need to accessorize with it!
The best part is it's made of v structured yet stretchy material so it doesn't crumple easily :)  

Alright, I'm dragging my lazy ass to the gym tomorrow!
Till then..

Go Blonde; SensualNailsSpa; I.T Store opening; ChockFullOfBeans; #TiffanyTakaXmas

November has been a pretty exciting month so far, my scheduler is fully scribbled with plans and activities. The past week had been really awesome ever since we started attending events because we got to meet some new friends and had opportunities we cannot be more thankful for. Cannot wait for December already!

Remember what I said about bleaching my hair in the previous few posts? So glad I finally did it! Thou my stylist Fiona has been constantly reminding me that my hair condition won't be as good as before, I just had to give it a shot! After hours of sitting in Salon Vim, I finally got the colour I want :)
 Tried a new treatment for the first time called KeraFusion by Kerastase. 
Basically it's a concentrate that will be mixed with a capsule of booster. By right it's just 1 booster per concentrate but Fiona actually gave me x3 the booster. 
That's how bad my hair needs this treatment. 
Its purpose was to reconstruct and fill the protein in the hair that was bleached away which allows my hair to feel more 'alive' after firming it. Exactly what I needed! 

 Really love how it turned out, hope I managed to pull of the 'fake angmoh' look haha 

Wearing an upcoming bomber jacket I love to bits. It's what I would totally wear to keep in warm in lectures/office yet not too casual. Been wearing it out to movies and I think I definitely need more of this in my bursting wardrobe!

And here's what I brought home!
Bain Chroma Riche shampoo that specially locks the colour and keeping its shine at the same time.
Have been diligently using it for the past few days and boy I am so glad Kerastase came up with the dual pump Fibre Architecte leave in serum. It works wonders for my bleached hair.
Hopefully my hair condition will look as if it hasn't been bleached after using these for a longer period of time!
It's time to pamper yourself girls, especially when it's end of the year, everyone just wants to look good isnt it? ;)

Visited Chock Full of Beans for the first time!
#01-2090, 4 Changi Village Road

Located at the end of a row of shophouses! Wanted to visit CFOB because of their specialty in latte art. It was pretty empty but we still made a reservation anyway. 
Silly us didn't check their menu and assumed they serve all day brunch, only to find out it's only available on weekends.. 

Don't know what got into us but we both ordered sandwiches that I could easily make at home haha
They tasted quite ok.. Nothing fantastic about it. 
We should have ordered pastas instead! Will prolly be back for dinner next time since the price is rather reasonable with no gst/service charge. 

After waiting for 30mins, our 3D latte art were finally served ;)
Isn't it the cutest latte ever? Best part is it only costs $6. Definitely an A-for-effort for the talented barista!!

Sean who didn't really appreciate the 3D art and finished the latte almost immediately haha

Outfit shot with the sister before heading to Taka for the Tiffany&Co event! 

High collar top with front and back slits upcoming on Ohvola! 
The material used is really awesome, will stock it up at Kissjane for you to try for yourself before the launch :)

Skirt - F21
Clutch - YSL

Almost 1 more month to Christmas, are you feeling the season already? 
For me, Xmas is the time of giving and I can't wait to go shop for my loved ones already! 
The beautiful Xmas tree right smack in the middle of Taka by Tiffany&Co!
So thrilled, we were invited to witness the light up of the tree together with our partner ;) 

They say kissing under the mistletoe gives the couple good luck heh 
Thankq my dear boyfriend for being there with me, I know it's not your thing to attend events and stuff :')

Pretty ladies, Jade Seah and Joanna! 

Here's the super gorgeous Eunice who can easily be recognized as the queen of modeling for online stores!

With Jessica aka Tippytapp who looked so much like a doll irl! 

And we also spotted our lovely customer Alene wearing an Ohvola design to the event! 
Aww.. She looked so good in this lace frock :) 

Thankyou Tiffany&Co and StylexStyle for having us, we definitely had a great time there! :) 


And so after a month, I finally removed the pop-art nails and went for something simple yet sophisticated. 
It's a set of Zipper x Chanel design ;) 
As usual, it's all hand-drawn by the skillful manicurist! I just cant stop looking at them all day..

Thank you Snspa for giving me pretty nails and keeping them healthy at the same time :) 

Yellow Organza top coming soon on Ohvola as well!

Also last week, we were invited to the opening of the second i.t store at Bugis!
i.t is a multi-label store which carries diversified and versatile street fashion items from in-house exclusive labels such as fingercroxx, 5cm, izzue, as well as CHOCOOLATE.

So with the many different styles under one roof, there is definitely something for you. 
They were all saying Lu was so sweet to shop for her bf while the rest of us were shopping for ourselves! Hah

With Rachel & Joanna, we are now the 3 blondies gushers! 

Happy to see this animal lover Chevonne again after so long :) 

Wore this upcoming drop-waist dress which I'm keeping in both colours! 

My all time fav, Itacho for dinner after which! 

Ending the massive picture post with a selfie of my best friend who was getting annoyed with us hooked on our phones. Hahaha!

Thankyou for reading, have a great week ahead ya'll! 
Till then..
