Went for a manicure -OPI Suede & Matte- and watched Despicable Me last night. Entertaining movie, though I preferred Toy Story 3. Maybe I’m just sentimental that way. Shots of my colourful digits, what I wore, and my attempts at capturing my use of that Topshop Eyeshadow trio.

Unlaced the last few stays of the corset back of the maxi dress & used it to tie around my waist in an attempt to make the too-big dress fit better. I like it better than wearing a belt with the dress thats for sure!

I’ve been staying away from making big purchases, in my attempt to save money. That’s right, no bags, shoes or clothes (so far). It’s taking its toll on me, I swear. It is so hard.

But I recently checked out Topshop’s new makeup collection (if you didn’t know, it’s in stores and has been since last week).

The make up range at Ion’s Topshop has almost been wiped out but I managed to pick up an eyeshadow trio. The colours are lovely, strong, vibrant and most of all, pretty darn affordable. With an additional (10%?) discount from my Topshop card, the trio cost me only SGD17.

I would have bought more, but like I said- saving.

Additional purchase was my SGD11 Forever 21 ring.

Also, annoyed at Reebonz’s 100% Indulgence sale. Some sale, it’s got rescheduled twice already and I never had such a hard time adding a damn item to my shopping cart before.

First Day

Posted in Fashion, Life by thisisanexperiment on March 31, 2010

Today was my first official start to my part-time job. We’re working out of a home office right now, but to be honest, it looks infinitely better than anything I’ve experienced as a work environment. I wish I had taken a picture, because that place honestly looks like it belongs in a Home Decor magazine. It was a good start, a little mundane, but the most important thing is that I felt really comfortable, hopeful, and purposeful. I’m excited about the things to come!

Also, Topshop/Topman is having a Guerilla Fashion Showcase on Good Friday, at ION, 12pm. I would go, if it wasn’t on Good Friday. Sighs. Click here to find out how to win some gift vouchers!

say cheese!

Note to self, no matter what I think in the future, cheesecake doesn’t work as lunch.

Just booked my flights to Cairo (flying from Dubai). A stressful and costly event. Hence, I have decided to refrain from manicures and save myself the $10plus bucks. DIY time.

Dear Friends, I will be in Egypt from the 18th to the 23rd of December, if anyone will be in that area!

Note to self: must make appointment to remove milla (millia?) seeds. It is annoying me.

Also, inspiration for today’s outfit. Comfort was obviously on my mind.


Also, Christopher Kane for Topshop is out!

I think I like the shoes best.
