This post might interest those of you schooling in poly/uni now so read on x (:

So I bet I've mentioned it a thousand times on my twitter and blog that I've started school about 2 weeks ago. Y'all may think that outfits for school are the easiest to put together but choosing outfits and makeup for school can get quite challenging. You don't want to look too over the top, neither do you want to look like you just crawled out of bed. So I've put together some  items (mostly bags) that are good for school and a school make up tutorial!

ps. they are mostly branded cos I used polyvore to select, but of course any bag similar to these would be good too!!Think big totes, satchels and bagpacks!

Pardon my tired looking face before makeup :/

So I have a short list of to-buy stuff for school.

01 / Water tumbler
02 / Converse shoes
03 / Big black tote
04 /  More basic tees

Hope you enjoyed this little geeky post. Have a great weekend babies xx

Hello, I'm pretty swamped with TJM and school nowadays so the things I can blog about are pretty limited :/
Anyhoos, Daniel and I spent Sunday afternoon shooting JUICE 81 lookbook at an old grungy carpark near my house!

First outfit!

Can you guess where I live now? ^^

Changing into my second outfit. I think the color of the coat is just CRAZY gorgeous!! And I'm not giving up my high boots even in Singapore hahaha

The weather wasn't exactly in our favor so I had to adjust the brightness quite a lot.

#FAIL Jumping shot, which I gave up eventually!


Never a fan of outdoor shoot but I'm gonna do more from now on so it looks more interesting, right?



You will see the final pictures on TJM tomorrow after I've launched (:
That being said, JUICE 81 preview is up on Facebook here !

Hope you get a little sneak peek into my TJM life. MANY people think that owning an online store is easy. Of course owning one is, but managing one isn't. It takes a lot of time (REALLY A LOT!), effort, commitment and sacrifices to run it well. You got to commit around 4-6 hours per weekday to reply mails/pack parcels, then burn easily another 10 hours to prepare for launch, then spend another good amount of time after launch to reply the fast incoming orders right after launch. Sometimes I don't even have time or forget to eat dinner, or like pack parcels until my back aches ( which is damn frequent, but thank God I'm going for a massage soon :D ). Hahah got so many things luh, and I'll never finish typing if I really wanna elaborate on it. BUT, I'm very very satisfied after every collection especially when my effort pays off and I can type "SOLD OUT" at every design status. It's tiring, but TJM is my baby so I love my job and it gives me an inexplicable joy and sense of accomplishment (: And it's only possible because of all your support and encouragement, so THANK YOU VERY MUCH REALLY <3

You have no idea how happy I am when customers tell me how much they love shopping at TJM, sending me emails of encouragement, seeing TJM items on instagram accounts I don't know (cos of #thejuicemarket) and especially when I see JUICESEA strut down different walks of life such as pageants and getting mentioned by YOU customers/readers that sometimes would eventually reach my ears through the word of mouth. I'm extremely thankful, and guess what.... I'm working on JUICESEA5 already. Targeted to be out by April? ^^

The last and one of the most important person I want to thank is my boyfriend, Daniel. Thank you for being so damn supportive over the past 3 years. Thank you for being my pillar of strength when I'm breaking down. Those stressful days when I broke out into tears out of nowhere, helpless and clueless as to what to were ALWAYS there. There were times I would be so busy with TJM I compromise on the time we meet or talk, but you always understood. At most you just threw a little tantrum and that's all. And thank you for letting me go overseas alone to work though you were very reluctant to cos of my safety. Thank you for always helping me whenever you can. I love you and thank you for being part of #teamtjm <3 

(I don't know how this post got so emotional, suppose to be just a pure BTS post hahahah)


It's 2:27am now and I just got to add this part in cos I love today! Met Daniel after school and brought him to Saveur for dindin and he loved it (super happy when people like my recommendation hahaha), then he brought me to Funan IT mall to get me my SUPER belated x'mas present. I didn't know what was it so I kept guessing...earphones, laptop case, external phone charger -.- AND TADAH IT'S SPEAKERS FOR MY ROOM THAT I'VE BEEN WANTING BUT NEVER GOT DOWN TO BUY <3 Very very happy!!! Xie xie ni xiao lan. Then we caught Les Miserables which was good, and now he's crashing over at my place. Can sleep a happy girl tonight, goodnight!!

The WonderBelle

Saw this on my Instagram and like my pants? Read on to find out where you can get it!

TWB is a newly opened online store in SG run by a team of dedicated people we like to call "The Wonder Team". We mail out parcels everyday (THAT'S VERY HARDWORKING, I CAN RELATE TO THAT!!). TWB doesn't have a specific genre of style; we like edgy, we love chic, we do girly, we sometimes want vintage.... Basically, we bring in products that we love and would wear and each collection is different every time! 
We sell what we love and we love what we do! 

Thank you for the lovely pants with intricate lace details! Gonna be wearing them a lot from now (:

And the suede heels I've been wanting to get! Thanks for being my Santa Claus, you're never too late ^^

Professionally done up website!

Here are TWB favorite and hottest items now. You need to get your hands on them!!!

As easy as ABC to get discounts!

Don't forget to join their mailing list to be notified of latest updates and promotions!



Just some BTS pictures of Oreo disturbing me when I'm taking pictures for the advert ^^

Spot a new friend!

Pardon the super messy hair heheh

Kirk's 22nd / People I love most.

Did a shoot on Sunday evening before heading down to meet the most important people in my life!

Been ages since I did elaborate make up, and I kinda miss it! Some more now I have no eyelash extension, I should really put in more effort in my make up (:

Was really excited to meet my babies for Kirk's 22nd birthday dinner. I have the bestest bestfriend who came to pick me up from shoot. Thank you Alist (my friend since primary 2) 

Had Japanese buffet dinner at Irodori Restaurant (located at Riverview hotel) and it was not bad, but still prefer Shinyuu!


You truly deserve all the love from all of us cos you never fail to make us laugh and smile just being the way you are. Really thankful to have such an optimistic, jovial and genuine friend like you, and you know I always have your back.
We all love you heaps!

Mad love my babygirls!

They are, without a doubt, the most important girls in my life and I love them to death. Nothing's gonna tear us apart and I'll do anything for you girls. Gonna mizz this trio combo when Ange's off to Sweden for 6 months :'( I think I might cry when I see her off this Friday.

Impromptu stayover at Ange's!

Our x'mas present from Vera (: Mad comfortable and cute!!! Can you see the ears?!!

And then we had our moments....

We also had a makeshift karaoke session with youtube until 6am!

Y'all (including Kirk and Alistair) mean the world to me and I won't risk losing any of you. I think I'm in a relationship with you guys as a whole cos I really love y'all a lot. Besides my family and Daniel, you guys are the people I love most. Please know that you guys are irreplaceable . Till death do us part? ^^


Launched JUICE 80 (:
CNY coming, come get your clothes!!

First work trip of 2013!

Went for another impromptu work trip just 2 days before school started. Workaholic much~
My plane look :
- draw brows
- conceal
- blusher
- lipbalm

Yeah I'm damn vain luh, take plane also must put a bit of make up. What if Leehom took the same plane as me and sat next to me right? Must be photo-ready lol

Checked into First House hotel. Room is alright but SERVICE SUCKS TO THE MAX!!! First house hotel you better step up on your customer service I tell you. I've never gotten more rude treatment from ANY hotel I've ever stayed at. It's my second time staying, and both stays were unpleasant (first one was cos room was damn gross and old but now they renovated, but the service got so much worse)

For the disgusting service I got, I'm not gonna promote the hotel!!! That's for turning me down when I needed help. 

1. My phone charger was spoilt and my phone was dying. I asked them to send an iphone charger to my room, they say cannot. I went to lobby and asked if I could leave my phone there to charge, they say whole hotel no one uses iphone so no charger -.- fine, i give you benefit of the doubt.

2. Because my phone was dying, I asked them to help me make a phone call to my eyelash parlor to help me book appointment. Also because of language barrier, I asked for their help to call. THEY SAID "NO, CALL YOURSELF. WE CAN'T HELP YOU" Ermmmmmmm?!!!! Wtf, my previous hotels (centrepoint and glow) helped me make countless phonecalls lor bitch

3. Called reception to ask for extra pillow they said "CANNOT, ONE EXTRA PER ROOM (donna got the extra one, I wanted another one for myself)" and then hung up on me. 

4. Donna left her iphone charger in my room after checkout so we asked the lobby staff if they could help us bring it down. Her reply "You go up take yourself!"

It's not all the "do-yourself" attitude I really hate but rather the tone? Doesn't even bother to say like "Sorry Miss, we are busy so do you mind helping yourself"???!!!! Pissed offffff!!!!

Okay enough ranting!
Donna reached BKK at night so after I was done sourcing, I went back to my hotel to shower then cabbed to her hotel to meet her.

Love the basic white racer cut top which will be up in TJM soon with the necklace (:

Took a cab and.......... 

I thought her hotel was damn far away from mine and I was cabbing alone! Super scared I'd get kidnapped or what so I texted her my cab driver license no and car plate number to call the cops if I don't reach within an hour. HAHAH really scared ok!!

Dinner at Huaykwang Terrace!

Food was so so! Still prefer Noi Seafood, also at Huay Kwang area! 

Ysl lippy I bought from the airport! The pink is damn gorgeous!!! :D
Donna stayed over at my hotel at night (: xie xie ni, I was really damn scared to cab back alone!

Then the next day, we went for breakfast at Mr Jones Orphanage!

Romper will be up in TJM soon too (:

I fell in  with this cafe almost immediately after I stepped in! 

My cake paradise!!!! *.*

This place somehow brings back the likes of first love and everything euphoric. Life feels so much happier and slower in the cafe. Definitely going back again!

It's located at Seenspace, Thonglor Soi 13 Bangkok (:
I feel so happy just sharing this cute cafe with y'all!!!

Looked horrible that morning, and I had a bad hair day :(

But still must express my happiness by capturing a "full of bliss" face with asian twist hahah.

I'll be launching JUICE 80 this coming Monday at 8pm. Come get your CNY clothes now (:

Before I go, here's just something I wanna share with you girls!

"We don’t find happiness or chase it.  We don’t follow it and we certainly shouldn’t wait on it.  Happiness is something that we create – all on our own from within us"
