When the gorgeous Drea Chong told me that once you got your hair dyed you'll never stop, I was apprehensive. Now I know what she meant. Went for a second round of colour touch-up and treatment with Sally at Shunji Matsuo, 313 Somerset. After just 2 months, I just couldn't stand the black roots anymore. Ah, the obsession. Am still heads over heels in love with my violet red hair. I had friends telling me that red fades away fast. I don't know if it's the Biolage by Matrix Colorlast Shampoo and Conditioner that Sally passed to me, or whether it's the dye used, my hair still manages to shy away from dullness and I still get compliments from many people about how they like my hair colour. Probably a divine combination of both, plus Sally's skills. Read more about my recent hair experience in my dayre.

The man finally came home… and now he's gone again. I wish I could say that it gets easier. But it never will. Long distance has its ups and downs. And some times it's healthy to break apart for a while to remember how good it feels to be together.
"... Or we might even concoct a business trip, creating a work commitment that separates us for a while and then bring us closer together, an antidote to routine. All for the pleasure of that phone call and hearing him say, "It's cold, without you."

I've been with Nuffnang Singapore for a while now. And even though I am not as active in the blogging industry as many others out there, it is heartwarming knowing that there is a community for me. That there are people who are working to help me build a teeny tiny piece of me that I always neglect. Other than the introduction of the new bloggerati program, Nuffnang also housed a few sponsors to help make this event happen. Hello Stranger for their Photo Booth (because bloggers, obviously). Maketh Project where I embossed my name on my very own leather card holder. Orange Clove for their customised cocktail reception. Fiona Treadwell for the beautiful display of decor and cacti (which we could bring home to nurture). Here's wishing the Nuffnang team the very best with this whole new rebranding!
Sephora sure knows how to throw a wicked party. The event was on a Thursday and it felt nothing like a Thursday. The music was pumping. Models strutted their stuff showcasing looks by top beauty houses like Givenchy, Urban Decay, Lancome and M.A.C at the Kisshibition Lip Show (watch behind-the-scene here). Choreographer of Beyonce's Freakum Dress, Jonte Moaning made his appearance and he. was. wild. 6-inch heels and an electrifying energy released only on Saturday nights came into play on that Thursday evening. The highlight of the day was when some Sephora staffs stood on the cashier counter and started grooving to the music. They must have been thinking, man I LOVE my job. I would too if it was me. I actually forgot that I had to go to work the next day. Bravo, Sephora! For yet another successful event and night to remember.
"Here's a toast to the good days, the better friends. The ones that you just can't live without. The people that have taught you how to party, how to live, how to have a good time just sitting around. Here is to the people that, no matter how bad things seem, are going to be there for you to lean on and catch you if you fall."
Ps: I'm on Instagram a lot. I'll catch you there, okay?
