//Detailed shots of my accessories I was wearing! //
Turquoise Bohemian neckpiece from LOVISA, Triangle stack necklace from TOPMAN and Hamsa hand neckpiece from H&M.
Both alligator and silver chunky ring is from H&M. 

New rings which I got from SCAPE*!

I finally had some spare time to actually update this space over here! And guess what? Exams are finally over and done with! Well at least for this year's end of year exams though. //Sighs// I'm expecting to get even busier and more hectic next year once my prelims and O levels are here. But oh well, we'll see when that comes. This year seems to pass by like a bullet train; and now it's already coming to mid October, oh talk about fast. 
But, i'm pretty pumped for my upcoming trips with the school and family! 
Hongkong trip with my choir mates is in another 2 and a 1/2 more weeks to go! Pretty excited about it as there will definitely be lots of time for shopping and bonding time with my choir mates! Afterwards it'll be the Cambodia Community involvement program trip with my school's student leaders and ambassadors! Lastly, a leisure and relaxing Penang trip with the family. It's been too long since we traveled together as one whole family and so I just cant wait to travel together with them even though it is just to a neighboring country; With these three trips in total, I'm pretty sure I've got my holidays planned out, now it all just has to fall right in place. 
Meanwhile, I just need to make sure that I get consistent results for all my subjects, and to make sure I do well especially for my double math; Elementary and Additional Math. I guess I'll be studying even during the holidays then! Well, since that's what most people say "Practice makes Perfect", I'm gonna put my faith and trust and work hard to pull my grades up and as what Coco Chanel says...

we're constantly chasing shadows we know we can't have

There's been something that I just can't keep out of mind these past few weeks and I just can't seem to understand why, I just keep wondering and thinking non-stop about it. 

Do you ever think to yourself "why am i alone?" 
Be it being single, having no friends or being alone in a crowd full of people. Why is that so? Just why am I the only odd one out?

It's because we're constantly chasing shadows we know we can't have. 
We hold on to the past, we like someone else we know that doesn't like you back or already has someone in mind. We try so hard to impress other people or just to fit into a clique which already knows they won't let you in. We just keep doing things we know we already can't have.
& amidst all this trying, we always tend to forget about the people around us- the people that have always been there for us and the people that care and love us. 
We need to let go and stop holding on to what's not worth fighting for and instead turn around and look at the people around us and embrace them instead for they had always been there embracing you. 
& I'm so proud of you my best friend, for you have learnt how to take a step back and let go. & Now I guess it's my turn.

BROOKLYN28

MY LOOK CONSISTS OF: Top- Topman • Anorak-  Cotton On • Skirt- H&M • Bag- Charles & Keith • Necklace- H&M • Arm accessories- gifted//scape

How i styled the Mesh jersey top; because it was such a casual piece, i wanted to dress it up a lil' so i paired it with this leather sleeved anorak as i did not want to lose the masculine feel of it and wearing pleather on pleather also makes the material stand out. For the accessories, i just kept it minimal with some arm candies, a watch and a gold statement necklace.

Decided to dress a lil more casual and comfortable today as a few of my friends and I were going to travel to the east side to surprise my friend who was going back to his country for quite some time, then we also headed to Bugis- Haji Lane for a while to slack around and also take some shots.
