ASCEND previews and what-nots

I'm so thoroughly overwhelmed these two weeks, even my workspace looks like a mess with PR packages strewn all over, TTR samples all lying around.

See, it's not always IG-worthy. It's a mess.

I have so many things that I wanna share on my Dayre but at the same time, 185927490202 other things are screaming for my attention.

At this moment, I don't have the energy nor inspiration to sit down and take nice photos of the things I wanna post on Dayre.

But I'll get through it, like always. πŸ’ͺ🏻

Woohoo the @/thetinselrack.my IG feed looking real gud. 😍 Did up some exclusive visuals there just for our Malaysian shoppers! πŸ’•

Anyway… Our monthly ASCEND launch is happening this Wednesday at 8pm.

Mark your calendars if you're looking to expand your workwear collection!

Anyway, some of the pieces we have this week can pass off as casual wear too. I love multi functional designs cause it only means you get more bang for your buck no? 😌

This cute asymmetrical pinstripes midi dress also comes in navy pinstripes and plain white!

If I were in the corporate world and I had to attend a meeting, I would definitely wear something like this.

When I tried this on I told @jongsy "omg I feel like a boss in this dress" LOL.

White is also really lovely.

I'm always tempted to keep all these work dresses even tho I hardly have any real need for them because they just make me look so professional and "legit". Hahaha.

There's also a pencil skirt with really pretty waterfall ruffles detailing down front! πŸ™ƒ I would own so many pencil skirts if I were an OL.

#thetinselrack #TTR

There's white!

I've heard you ladies ask for a white pencil skirt which is not sheer.. There you go. πŸ˜‰

And olive! 😍😍

I think olive is my favourite colour for this skirt.

My favourite item from this collection…

This wrap blouse. Which I kept, of course! ✨

Gonna be biased and show you every colour we have for this piece!

A very flattering shade of deep olive. πŸ’πŸ»

I really like how this blouse drapes..!

I'm so boring tho. I kept white. #whatsnew 🌚

And it pairs really well with the Bondi Pants!

Can't wait to wear this out tomorrow. πŸ™‚

And previews are done!! πŸŽ‰

Recently, I keep having to tell myself to worry less.

I'm a born worrier. I worry about everything and anything. For an entrepreneur, I'm surprisingly un-optimistic. πŸ˜‚

It's not healthy but sometimes, unknowingly, I let things get to my head a little too much. Then I catch myself doing it and then I'll take a step back and tell myself to stop worrying about things which are out of my control.

I get especially worried when there are too many question marks and uncertainty in my life. I like knowing how things are gonna pan out but unfortunately that's not very possible. Haha.

It helps when I'm mindful about my thoughts. When I realise that I'm getting worried, I remind myself to focus my energies on doing productive thinking rather than pointless worrying.

I tell myself to stop imagining the worst.

Monday's motivation. πŸ’ͺ🏻

Each time my friends ask me "when is your KL store opening!", I feel stressed.

And then I eat to combat the stress. πŸ™ƒ

Stress because I've not been able to answer their questions. Lolol. The store was supposed to be opened beginning of Sep. Then it got delayed because renovations got delayed and because of the delay we changed the target opening to mid Sep.

Then delay here delay there.

Delay until I don't dare to promise an opening date.

But ermmmmmm I think….. Should be this Sat 30 Sep. 😬

I mean… It better be la.

If delay again I will puke blood and die.

It's such an arduous process, trying to open a store/set up business in another country. I feel like we're so far away and it's difficult to get a hold on things happening there. I would like things to go a little smoother but we have so many unfamiliar things to figure out over there.

But at the same time, there's a whole new world of possibilities out there. So many open doors and windows.

It's a mixture of both excitement and trepidation.

Hopefully this weekend we can 鑺鑺利利 ε€§ε‰ε€§εˆ© open in KL (Paradigm Mall #UG-45A) and then I can update you guys about it!

Keeping all my fingers and toes crossed, 🀞🏻

I'm really liking this blurred, soft glow on my face. I think it's due to the magical combination of the Fenty primer and the CoverFX setting powder… But it might also be due to the new night time skincare routine I'm on. I can't put my finger on it!!

Next time I'll make one change at a time to see which is the one which is causing the change.

After clearing out my lipsticks on Saturday… I have decided.

No buying of lipsticks until I finish at least one of the lipsticks which I own. Lofty ambition, I know, hurhur. πŸ™ƒ

Trying to reach out for the ones which I've been neglecting!

Today's lipstick of choice is the Apieu Colours Lip Stain in CR02 Thai Tea. How cute is the shade name???

It's a liquid lipstick which dries into a powdery matte finish. And I really like the diffused look and warm peachy colour of this. 😌 Guess this one just made it into my regular rotation for a while.

Today's lunch at The Coffee Academics because it's on Entertainer App! πŸ‘πŸ»

#JoyceisEntertained

My usual coffee order here would be the Okinawa but today I gave Jawa a shot and BOY, IT IS GOOD.

I could taste the faint but distinctive flavour of gula melaka. Mmmm. 😌

TCA is so good for their coffee!! Mains can be a lil overpriced but idm cause there's 1-for-1!

Jo's soft shell crab mac and cheese which was a letdown. You can easily find better mac and cheese elsewhere. 😟

The sauce was more creamy than cheesy!

And this girl didn't even realise that her mac and cheese didn't taste like it was supposed to, because she FORGOT what she ordered. πŸ˜‘ @jongsy

My Umami Pasta which was a tad dry before I stirred my onsen egg in.

ZL always stares at me in horror whenever I break my egg yolks. But I LOVE BREAKING THEM INTO MY FOOD. I always feel that it elevates the taste of the soup/sauce. He's a fan of gulping the egg yolk in it's entirety while I scoff at that. Hahaha.

This was nubbad! But would I order it again?

Nah. Maybe not.

I'll stick to the coffee here, I guess.

Tried this dress on today and decided to keep it because it's surprisingly really flattering! 😍😍😍

It's not too hip and tummy hugging and very comfortable to move around in. β˜ΊοΈπŸ™ŒπŸ»

Idk when I will get to wear this out though.. LOL. But just keep first. I'm sure I'll find some occasion to wear it!

And my act yi ge OL #ootd today feat. the draped front blouse. Heh.

Managed to dig out a pair of stripey flare pants from our past collection. My memory is terrible when it comes to remember item names.

But according to Jo, this is the Grande Wide Leg Pants! 😌

I enjoyed putting this outfit combi together! It's so polished! And quite unlike my usual dressing. But now that I'm 28 I better start dressing my age. Lolol. πŸ˜‚

This blouse can also be easily dressed down. I can imagine it with a pair of tailored shorts, a nifty sling bag and sliders for a casual weekend look. ☺️

Tassel fan earrings which I'm wearing will also be in the launch tomorrow. Comes in four colours – red, navy, black and white.

There's also a long tassel one with a cute chinese knot which is removable! Lemme go hunt for pics.

Isn't this the cutest???

Also comes in four colours – forest, red, black and white.

They are really versatile too. Paired them with quite a handful of outfits during our last photoshoot! πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
