Crystal's Closet: Weekly Wardrobe (Ep17) with an up close & personal meeting with Michelle Phan!
The only thing I need to be aware of is the wind because the skirt is too light and easy to fly up when the wind blows.
I was wearing my own handmade pearl collar necklace with a navy casual dress. Less is more! Sometimes we don't need to wear many things to make an impression.
Corset top and smiley ring as it was Friday. T.G.I.F! Time to wrap up the whole busy week and chill out. There wasn't any work-party 2 in 1 outfit because I decided to go back and change before heading out to join my girl friends.
So this was my dress for Friday night: red lipstick, curly hair and bodycon black dress. My girl friend couldn't reckon me when I walked into the bar because that was the first time she went to a bar to catch up with me on Friday night. Obviously, that was also the first time she saw me dress up like that. Surprise!
Her story to fame is so inspiring and what attracted me at first was when i knew she is also Vietnamese but born and living in US. She recorded her make-up tutorial videos in her living room in 2006 with a very simple camcorder and set up. There wasn't anything special about her makeup tutorials on Youtube as many people already did that. Only after Michelle Phan made a youtube makeup tutorial to transform herself into Lady Gaga in her song "Poke Face" which was super duper popular back then, she attracted hundred thousands views from the first week. Now? That video has had 20 millions view so far and still counting. To date, she has more than 2 millions subscribers on her Youtube channel from all over the world. Can you believe it? It's 4 times more than Singapore population.
Not just that, Lancome then invited her to be their spoke person. And that was how Michelle Phan got to fame and success right now. She has 4 different businesses to run and earns million dollars from her Youtube, Blog, etc...at the age of 25. She was born in 1987 and yes she is younger than me 3 years old, wtf!
Life has lot of amazing and surprising things and we will never know what to expect. Just keep dreaming, chase for your dream and don't ever stop. That's what I love about this little sweet girl whom I can relate so much to.
That was pretty much how my week went! It was super fantastic. Don't you feel bored of listening the same thing everytime? Lolz! In fact, if you follow me closely enough for the past 5 months since my first Crystal's Closet episode, I do not only have some great weeks but also some shitty weeks. But I'm always trying my best to keep myself positive, motivated and optimistic. That spirit eventually changes the bad situation I'm in to a better one. It's hard to explain in details but I believe it's true.
I hope you guys had a great week too and stay positive always.
