HERWORLDPLUS: SOCIAL MEDIA AWARDS


Crystal Phuong- Herworldplus Social Media Awards

I remember so clearly 6 years ago when I first started working in Singapore, I was struggling to survive in a new country, all by myself, with an entry level job. No friends, no family. Just me finding a way to adapt to a new environment while thinking of how to live by with a couple of hundred dollars a month in my pocket. Every time passing by Forever21 on my way home, I had to remind myself not to be tempted by the gorgeous dresses displayed in the window. I didn't want to step inside as I was afraid that I couldn't help but bring them home. The beautiful clothes were my one week's worth of meals. I couldn't afford it. I made a promise to myself that when I made more money, I'd come to Forever21 and buy all the clothes that I'd ever wanted. 

Fast forward 6 years later, not only have I fulfilled the promise I made to the younger me, but I also reached many milestones in my life and career. Being a fashion blogger was one of them. Being one of the top 4 finalists of the Social Media Awards, organized by Herworld, is another achievement that I'd like to share with you. It's always so overwhelming to be noticed and recognized. But this award is also meaningful to me as my all time favorite brand Forever21, is the main sponsor. It would be nice if I can have your vote.

Last weekend, I had a wonderful time playing dress up in Forever21 to pick out my favorite 3 outfits. I'll be sharing more in the upcoming blog posts. For now, here is an outfit idea for you working ladies. 

Thank you Herworld and Forever21 for choosing me as one of the finalists and allowing me to share my story with you and my readers. Sometimes, I like to look back at my old stories, not to regret, only to see how far I've come.

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE DETAILS



One of the interesting questions that I've been asked recently is "How do you know which dress or skirt to pick among hundreds of items in a clothing store?". This leads me to think: How do you usually shop for clothes? Do you buy new arrival items or do you select the past seasoned ones? Do you plan on what to buy before going to a store or just go with the flow?

Whenever I go shopping for clothing, I always bring my SCMDP rules which stand for Silhouette, Color, Material, Detail, and Price with me. Sticking to these rules save me time from getting distracted by hundreds of other items on the rack.  Any clothes that have beautiful silhouette like this dress, gorgeous color like this skirt, or outstanding details like the shift dress from FewModa that I'm wearing here will attract me instantly.

Finding a perfect dress is not difficult as long as you know what dress silhouette work best for your body shape or size and what color will compliment your skin tone. I usually love vibrant colored outfits, but if they have to be in black and white, they'd better have exquisite details that come with it. This embroidered shift dress is just one of many items that I'm obsessed with on FewModa.com. Trust me, you will get addicted the moment you start browsing their site. To answer your question above "How do you know which dress or skirt to pick among hundreds of items in a store?". The truth is, I don't know because every time I visit FewModa's website, it's not about "what to pick" but rather "Can I pick them all" that's a problem to me.

Thank you FewModa for spoiling me!

METALLIC AND PINK



It's that time of the year when we start planning what to buy for your loved ones (#HolidayGiftGuide is here in case you need it), thinking about what to wear to the parties, and heading home to spend time with our family, we know it's Christmas. The New Year is only 13 days away from now. Where has the year gone? Thinking about how fast time flies nowadays scares me. As much as I love getting everything done as soon as possible, I still wish to slow down time so that we could enjoy our life a little bit more. I sound contradicting,  don't I? 

Besides great holiday sales, fun parties, and delicious food, this season is also the appropriate time for sweaterscoats, and boots. Singapore temperature hardly drops below 25°C (77°F), but thanks to the stormy rains every day during this month, I can still put on some of my favorite sweaters whenever I'm out and about. 

Last weekend, following the metallic and pink dress code, I chose to wear these shimmering sweaters, pink culottes, and silver heels to attend Givenchy Teint Couture Cushion worldwide premier. It was not the most glamorous outfit that you usually see me wearing at a party, but it was certainly the most theme-appropriate one. Besides, it instantly put me in a holiday mood and kept me warm while the rain was pouring down at the time we had these photos taken.

BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION WITH RADISSON BLU PLAZA PHUKET



Birthday celebration at Radisson Blu Plaza Phuket Resort

It was quite a surreal moment for me to celebrate my birthday with one of the best hotels in Phuket last month: Radisson Blu Plaza Phuket Resort. As mentioned before, my first visit to Radisson Blu Plaza Phuket was in April this year and it was a wonderful experience. I chose to spend my birthday at Radisson Blu Plaza Phuket because I knew I would be in good hands. But I didn't expect it to be better than the first time. A birthday cake prepared upon my arrival. A deluxe room with sea view and a private pool. A delicious birthday dinner at their fine dining restaurant. All of these were great surprises that the hotel offered.

The rooms are spacious, the food is delicious, the scenery is breathtaking. Besides the two larger than life swimming pools, we have a whole private beach to ourselves, by the way. Most importantly, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. They always make me feel like home. Believe it or not, after 31 years, this was the first time I spent my birthday oversea. As much as I'd love to be surrounded by many good friends on my special day, I have to admit that having some quiet time with my mysterious man in a private beach resort, listening to him singing "Happy Birthday" to me was the most wonderful celebration by far. Radisson Blu Phuket made it even more memorable for both of us. 

If you ask me for an advice on "How to surprise girlfriend on her birthday?", my answer would always be "Bring her to Radisson Blu Plaza Phuket". 

Thank you so much, Radisson Blu Plaza Phuket for spoiling me!
