August is upon us!
For once I'm not complaining about a month coming too quickly because…
August is my birthday month.
😀 😀 😀
Although August is gonna be one hell of a crazy ride, I'm sure it'll be a good one!
You're defined by what you're willing to struggle for. ✨
These flower earrings in white are oos already (that's why you don't see it on my listing anymore) but I'll see if I can bring them back cause I got quite a few of you asking about that. 🤗
Time for bed, goodnight friends!
So… August is here and that means it's time to do my Jul favourites?
Meanwhile, on #TTR, we have palm tree prints this week for your vacay outfit needs! 🌴
Wanted to keep it for my birthday but… Can't resist so I ended up wearing it today!! 😂
Attempted a subtle pink eyeshadow look today and I like it a lot!!
I'll share the products I use tomorrow, don't have the shades with me now.. Or maybe I can do it in my Jul favourites post although technically I did this for the first day of Aug. 😂
Packing my shopee parcels really brought me back to the not-so-good old days when it was just me and @jongsy handling every single thing all by ourselves for TTR.
Handwritten envelopes and all. 😂
This selling accessories on Shopee thing was supposed to be a fun and by the way thing in light of my shopping adventures but my brain can't stop thinking of ways to make it better…? LOL. Must be 职业病 cause I keep feeling like I should improve on the packaging and even thought of doing up a simple website for it when I have more time on my hands. 😂😂😂
But then again I have a bit too much on my plate right now so it shall remain a lighthearted side hustle for now.. 😇
If you missed out on the previous round of earrings I put up cause they got squished to the bottom when I uploaded my preloved… They're now back at the top of my selling page again! 😇
When you're around that age where everyone is starting to get hitched or pop babies… This is the response you get when you tell your friends you have something huge/exciting to share. 😂👌🏻
Can't wait to catch up with my long lost @yeomabel this month!
Checked out a cute pastel looking ice cream parlour called Lickety with @jongsy today!
So much love for this adorable place. Happy vibes all over. 🤗💕
Picked my ice cream flavour today based on colour. Purple goes so well with the pastel hues all around!! 👌🏻✨
In case you're wondering… It's not all looks no substance!
This is yam and coconut and I enjoyed it thoroughly although ZL says I need to run 12km to burn this off, plus the rainbow sprinkles. 😂 My PT has spoken.
They have this spot in front perfect for taking #ootd photos!! 😘👌🏻
And there was no one seated outdoors today (too hot zomg 🔥) so we got to take as many as we want, save for when photobombing people walk past us. 😂
We also made this dress in solid colours like white and navy.
Vvvvv tempted to keep both but then @jongsy will say "keep keep keep but never clear your wardrobe 😒". Which is undeniably true also. Sigh. Life.
The ice cream was really not bad. But I'd recommend to skip the toppings. Hahaha. The sprinkles look so cute but errmmmm bite until 牙齿掉 😩
I don't have endless modelesque long legs but I tried la okay…. 😂 good angle saved me a little.
My fav fav fav pair of Keds!
I love the Tournament series the most out of all their models.
This is a full leather pair and honestly goes with 90% of my outfits. ❤️
TTR is gonna have something exciting coming up in collaboration with Keds soon, stay tuned y'all! 👌🏻
Always have a soft spot for white sneakers. 😌✨
This Dayre of mine…
Was having a casual WA chat with my close friends earlier and one of them told me that she just followed me on Dayre (HELLLLLOOOOO 👋🏻). Because a few of her colleagues told her that my Dayre is "very interesting" and she got curious. 😂
Most of my close friends – except for @nakedglory and @jazreeltan – don't have Dayre accounts and so I presume they don't read me…? Haha. Or maybe they all secretly stalking me. Lolol okayyyy KIDDING.
The first reaction that I get when ZL or my friends tell me that they have friends/colleagues/siblings reading my Dayre is always horrified. 😨 Lol.
Idk why but the first thought that comes to mind is always "omg so paiseh they actually read all the rubbish I type on Dayre???"
I mean… I know I have people following me on Dayre but sometimes my content is really got no filter one. I don't bother to type in proper English and some things that I share are actually quite lame. LOL.
Some photos also very cui + no QC. 😂😂😂 Really quite anyhow.
But I guess that's the beauty of Dayre!
Doesn't have to be as curated as IG feed. 😬 And good for dumping many many photos. Hahaha.
Why do I dayre what I dayre?
Sometimes I ask myself that. I also wonder why you guys read my Dayre.
I mostly share about the upcoming items on TTR, the struggles and celebrations of being a self employed, random screenshots of my daily conversations with people, sometimes food (??), sometimes beauty, very rarely about deep thoughts and even more rarely about educational topics.
I guess I don't really think of myself as someone with an interesting personality, or someone who leads a super glamorous or exciting life.
So I'm always in this half awe and half shock state whenever I bump into strangers telling me that they actually read me, and particularly like reading about me and ZL….? 😳
AND I ALWAYS DK HOW TO RESPOND hahahaha so sorry if you talked to me before and my response was just "ooh… haha okay thanks!!".
But actually it's an entire avalanche of feelings inside that idk how to accurately express. 😂😂😂
To me, dayre is like my personal time capsule and a memory bank more than anything else.
If I'm not wrong, I've been on Dayre since 2013! So ancient omg. Hahaha. I used to blog but Dayre is so much more convenient!
From time to time, I would select a random month from my past and read through. Some things which I shared about I've long forgotten. And it brings back good feelings. 😌
All the places I've been with my friends, all the small moments between me and ZL, milestones which TTR has been through.
And that keeps me going. Through times when I'm feeling too burnt out from work to dayre, times when I contemplated on quitting social media altogether because I felt like there are people out there who are secretly reading and judging me, or times when I'm just purely lazy.
Of course I still filter certain content before sharing them, because not everything is meant for sharing on a public platform.
But I'm thankful for Dayre because it's a record of all the good and bad times.
I really love the sense of community here and especially feel the encouragement from my friends from Dayre whenever I share about a bad day or a down moment. Thank you all for leaving little notes to show your love and support for both me and TTR!
And above all, thank you all for indulging me and reading all the content that I've shared on Dayre. 🤗
I hope I'll be here to stay for a long time to come. ❤️
