La Enchanté Spring Collection

So, it's been almost a year since I've started modelling for La Enchanté.
Though, okay la, blogshop modelling isn't not considered as real modelling in my opinion. But all the same, they require similiar hardwork & efforts behind he scenes (or is it just me who needs hardwork cos i don't know how to model? :( lol)

I've attempted several other modelling jobs or blogshop events before this, and flopped badly for some :/
When it goes onto the blogshop site, I just pray n pray that friends won't realise it's me. I can't bear to even bear to view the finished photos on my own, i wonder how the poor photographer endured through the editting. lol.. But also from those, I've learnt about myself more, and surprisingly, understand myself (physically) even deeper. I always thought we all know ourselves best, but turned out that I didn't really.

This is the longest modelling task I've been through and I'm really glad Chee & I worked it out (rather) smoothly! :D Learnt a thing or two about photoshoots, wearing high heels, stopped slouching so frequently, coordinating outfits etc. Sad to say, some of my friends who model for blogshops could even help to edit the photos after the shoots (they know themselves better than the photographer la) but I know nothing much about editting except mei tu xiu xiu n similar sorts! LOL.

I totally remember the awkward moment (or days actually) it was when I first saw my face on a webpage. Dunno why leh, it's just awkward. Probably lack of the confidence and just very afraid that people will criticise and etc. But thankfully, chee insisted, "ahya, people will focus on the clothing only". Come to think of it now, not sure whether she meant it as sarcasm or console, lol!

Now I'm totally used to seeing many of my faces on the site or fb page.
Like this.

It actually doesn't feel like seeing myself anymore. Seriously. I see it as... just another face?
In fact, I'm more focused on the outfits and maybe the hair. Will keep thinking, "oops, never wear the dress properly", "never stand straight to portray the attire", or "oh no, didn't coordinate the outfit to the best they can be", or "wah, why the hair so messy!" :(

The best thing about working with a good friend, you feel so comfortable and at ease even though you might be totally new to the whole event.
In other photoshoot events, there are usually awkward silence (except clicks of the camera) while the photographer is shooting away when I have run out of new poses :/ But with chee, we can sometimes just shoot in comfortable silence. :) Cos ah, you have to understand that it's very tiring to stand in high heels and smile for hours already, so I'm extremely glad we don't have to do small talks like with acquaintances still.. hehe.

I'm also relieved that we are also very understanding of each others' work commitment and schedule. And that we have trust. That way, it makes coordination and many other things easier. I just have one small 'complaint' though - that is I hope that one day when she's able to "reveal" herself and she should totally model the clothings! She's sucha nice smile and slim face (even her own mother agrees haha) la. Whereas, my face keeps getting rounder n rounder :/ arghs

That pretty much sums up my year of modelling for LE.
It's Spring again and La Enchanté's Spring Collection is so yummy!

My favourite from the collection is actually the simplest design of the lot :)
The Camilia skater dress

Camilla skater dress (white)

Camilla skater dress (black)

Love it so much that I got both the white & black!
Wore them out several times already cos it's so easy to match.

Then the royal pleated mini gown.
Wore it for a wedding lunch previously. but i can't find the pic now.. :x

Royal pleated mini gown

Power girl peplum skirt in hot pink!!
And dark topaz for more tone-down or i-want-a-skirt-that-matches-any-tops-so-that-i-can-save-using-my-brains-to-coordinate (what a mouthful) days.
Love both!

Last but not least, the Freyde pleated dress which was a huge sell-out in one of the earlier collections!
C has decided to bring in a new shade, navy! :)

Hoshi Japanese Restaurant @ IMM

Had a pre-celebration with M few days back.
Was feeling girlish so I wore La Enchante cayla dress even though it was a work day :p

Here's how it looks in full :)

Cayla crochet collar dress (black) Size S

There's still size S left!

Was craving for sashimi so we went to the nearest Japanese restaurant :)
Ended at Hoshi @ IMM.

Ordered a set dinner meal at $42+ for 2pax.
Very much worth it!
Changed the sashimi platter to all salmon sashimi.

Wings wth salt.

Came with 2 sets of pork cutlet, rice and soup too.
The pork cutlet was crispy yet not oily.
Portion was huge too, I had to takeaway the remaining so as not to waste so much food! :x

And since we were at IMM, went Daiso to stock up on all the snacks and what's not!
My fav snack from Daiso..
Limited edition flavours ;)

Had photoshoot with C the next day.
The shoot was a lil' awkward due to a change in studio area :x
Maybe cos I'm not professional lah hurhur.
But still, can't wait to get the photos from her!


Remember to help vote for my Cebu Pacific Juan Blogger Contest video here:
The one with a lady dressed in red and wearing huge shades ;)
Thank u!

Happy CNY & Valentines ♥

Happy CNY & Valentines everybody!
How had the holidays been for you? :)

I have been instagraming more often than fb-ing or others recently!
So add me on instagram, OYHZ for updates :)

It was a pity that it rained consecutively for all the 3 days! And even before cny. I would have enjoyed the visiting more if it was a bright sunny day! But nevertheless, 水为财 so I shall not complain further :)

The cats were all so grumpy looking those few days! lol.

We had half day off on friday, thus bunch of us went for last-min cny shopping. I went to get my shoes, goodies & etc as well.

Here's sookie & I on our way out.
It was pouring that day, so having a bright photo means having more noise as well :x

Oh, I coloured my hair red :D

Bought some CNY goodies for ah ma :)
Those in huge tins are love letters, from namely, swee heng (red ones) & four seasons (floral tin).
The ones from swee heng are great! The fragrance of it entices everyone in my maternal family to take one once I opened the tin. lol. Even those who had said earlier, "don't want la, trying to diet." or "such cny goodies are too sweet for old people like me.." LOL.

The nonya pineapple tarts are my fav this year!

Also, I came home to this lovely present lying on the piano seat.
My valentines present arrived just in time for CNY :)

Decided to get a medium coffer becos I heard miu miu is discontinuing it.
Is that true??
It's such a classic design, how can they! :(

Had a simple reunion dinner at ah ma house.
Steamboat for the adults and bbq for the kids. I had bbq food of cos :p
And taiwan beer to was everything down, ahh.

With my not-so-baby nephews.
The one in front is SO FAT :x

As seen in the previous post, I was fretting over my cny clothings all the way til day 初一 itself!
Finally decided on La Enchante's Olinda dress in crimson rose. Heh.

Here's my ootd shot.

Had our usual routine..
Went to senja kaikan in the morning for new year gongyo.

Wl was doing duty there.

Next we made our way to peach garden for our annual dimsum brunch on 初一 :)
Service and food is good as usual!
And such colourful candies welcoming us :D

Went on to various elders' houses to bai nian after brunch.

It was food/tv/chat the entire day.. I think I had gained abit of weight over the 3 days, woohoo!

KJG is the new LCG man! The ba kwa is awesome!
I heard KJG is the supplier for LCG anyways?

Final stop at my gu gu's house.

She had the white tent put up permanently at her porch/garden/carpark to shelter her posh cars on rainy days, or to hold mini banquets during the festives. lol. Super ka zhang!
The sis and I simply nua at the balcony area cos we were too tired to eat/chat.
Plus it was still pouring, so we couldn't sit by the pool :/

Even cooper was tired-out by 9pm.

初二 was spent eating MORE food, watching more tv, and gaining more weight -_- hahaha.
My ootd for day II of cny :)

In floral frock, black 'snake'-skin clutch and a colourful emsemble on my wrist.

We went for Japanese dinner at raffles city.
Decided on Bachmann Japanese Restaurant cos it had the, erm, shortest queue. Hehe.

Hot soupy ramen on a rainy day is ♥♥♥ anyways!!

Gyozas that are cripsy on the outside, and juicy inside.

All-time fav soft-shell crab :)

Went to join the crowd over at River Hong Bao after dinner.
Our yearly must-do during cny.
But it was pretty boring this year.
Maybe cos I didn't managed to hit any bells at the 'wishing well' :( lol.


Starry dress in coral from La Enchante.
Love the embroidery details ♥

Went out to chill in the afternoon (to prevent ourselves from stuffing our faces with more pineapple tarts :O)




Was stucked in a jam so we had lotsa time to cam-whore. Hehe.
Okay lah...
Even if no jam we'll still camwhore lor >.<

Went to Maybel's house to bai nian in the evening.
Her baby's so cute & obedient (for the period I saw her heh)!

And here's wl again, being so proud cos she's taller than me that day!

Went Bedok 85 for late dinner/supper after house visiting.
My prawn mee!

Felt giddy the entire evening and even right before I slept :(
I was so afraid something's wrong and asked my sis, what if I faint in my sleep ah? Will that happen??
She gave a =.=

Doc says it's vertigo.
Might be due to bacteria in my ears :(
But all he gave me were pills for giddiness and nothing for my ears leh :/
Wish the spinning goes away soon..

CNY countdown~

CNY is in 3 days time but I have not prepared for it! :/
The only things I did were my nails and curls!
Maybe my skin also? Talk more about that later~

I did my usual gelish glitter french manicure a few days back.
I know i know, my nails are very short! Cos I used to play the piano and couldn't keep long nails.. So kinda gotten used to it as I grew up. Now I can't tahan my nails once they grow more than 0.5cm long, hahaha.

Anyway, my manicurist was very sweet! Gave me EXTRA BLING since it's CNY! <3

Did a new pink glitter shade for my feet, to match my mani :)

I suddenly forgot what's the name of this shade again.. :( :( 

We bumped into cai shen ye (god of fortune) after my pedi lols.
Lucky lucky! :D
Pardon my bloated face, cos i only slept like 3-4 hours for consecutive few days prior to that :/

For hair, I permed it last month at Jean Yip.. The curls are loosening now to just the right softness I love :) 

Look at my hair! Not the mussels! (the mussels are really yummy with the vin blanc sauce btw! lolol)

That's my bored look when we were having test shoot.
But I really like the shape of my hair/curls that day! :) 

And my skin has really IMPROVED after taking Brands innershine marine collagen.
It's more supple and smooth now. Even has a slight pinkish glow if I couple the collagen intake with an earlier bedtime :p
My photoshoot went well :)

Now I'm left with things that I need to put onto myself for the CNY - dress, shoes, bags etc.

I have a vintage-looking yellow floral dress which I like a lot. But parents think that I should probably wear something brighter and more cheery on chu yi.
Sister took the coral one which I mentioned previously that I got it as one of my CNY dresses :/

Starry dress (peach coral)

I have a crimson tube dress from Bonito too, but the actually shade is kinda dull.
Might keep it for chu er/san/si!
Or a wedding dinner instead. haha.
Otherwise, any takers?? Going for $33.50.
Mine's in size XS.

Went to town/JB the other day to look at clothings, but the designs are either too song2 for my liking or too exp! (i consider $40+ exp for a dress which I can find similar ones online for $30+ or less!)
So, very last-min, I have to turn to La Enchanté again, my usual supplier of clothings..

Short-listed a couple!
As I scroll through the archives, I found more & more cheery red/pink pieces which I did not noticed in the past :x oops. Now I'm spoilt for choices.
Help me choose!

Olinda dress (crimson rose)

Olinda dress (crimson rose)

Lady lace frock (pink) size S

Sweetheart peplum dress (crimson rose)

I think the blue is nice actually, and still bright enough. But it's sold-out :(

Sweetheart peplum dress (blue)

Estelle floral dress (red)

Lovth Colour Block Mini Dress (Red)

Afraid my ah ma might complain too 'short' though.

Vevina cutout dress (salmon)

Vallerie V-back dress (red)

My hair so damn straight in the past! lol!

Vallerie V-back dress (blue)

Helpie help!

Had wanted to get the vintage chanel medallion tote in black from Reebonz.

Then I saw a rose version and was hesitating between searching for a similar shade or black.

By the time I'm done hesistating, it's sold out le :(

And I need shoes still too.
But shoes are supposed to come after I've decided on the clothings! To ensure they can compliment well!
Ahh, help me on the clothings pleaseeee!
