i... have been cooped up at home of late.
the lunar new year period spells B-U-S-Y for us in the retail industry; we've been launching more designs and at a more frequent rate in the weeks leading up to the festivities!
and if you don't already know, i'm in charge of the creatives at missypixie so it means tonnes and tonnes of artwork to be done - from lookbooks to previews to landing pages and thumbnails on site - can't even recall the last time i switched on my lappie without launching photoshop :(
plus, my gelish nails look like crap 'cos i haven't had the time to sit at a salon to get it fixed. ughhhh..
but i do hope our efforts are paying off!
are you girls enjoying our lunar collections so far? (crossing my fingers you all are!)
this year, we didn't specifically make any designs super oriental nor traditionally mandarin because we believe in the 'wearability' of apparels! ie. we want you girls to be able to still wear our items after the festivities are over! so we made do with the use of lace, florals, chiffon, reds, etc, on more feminine silhouettes instead.. how's this working out?
if you girls really prefer to don cheongsam-inspired wear instead, feel free to let us know!
there's always the next lunar year for us to improve on ;)
anyhow, i really don't have much to show for these couple of weeks :(
so here's some really backdated outfits plus pathetic snippets of what i've been up to!
me. huge fan of polka dots.
have 'em on phone covers, note pads, pens, caps, and also on my body.
wanted to wear my cotton corset but am tired of pairing it with high waisted bottoms so i wore it underneath my dungarees instead!
conquering a rainy day with bright florals and a colorful brolly.
tried my hand at banana-nutella muffins but didn't manage to get ripe-til-almost-rotten bananas from the supermarket.. so the said fruit taste wasn't strong enough. am gonna try this again til i perfect it!
accompanied the boy to his first studio shoot! he's giving workout tips on CLEO in his capacity as a personal trainer so be sure to spot him in April's issue :))
he's been training me really hard these days via crossfit seshs at the park.. and we've been doing twice to thrice a week runs round his estate. groans. im sure my muscles are building up... somewhere?!
one of 'em solo runs.
took the night off to catch FIR in concert, thanks to free tix from a media buddy!
had fun waving lightsticks in the boy's face and sang til my voice was hoarse.
family BBQ over the weekend! its been a long time since i've went to any of these gatherings and im glad i did!
bestest buncha fun-loving cuzzies :)
that said, eating healthy will start TOMORROW!
it always starts tomorrow, isn't it? hahaha. imma gonna make me some awesome wraps for breakfast!
or will i? follow me at @druggedreams to find out ;)
in other news.. we will be doing another mid-week launch this week so stay tuned to the preview on our Facebook page! now now, back to work.
