Chopard #AreYouHappyDiamonds
















Chopard Happy Diamonds

Most happy when I’m shooting, but I’m even happier when I get to work “Behind The Scenes”, thinking of shoot concepts and having a more creative input into how I want the shoot to go about. I have the amazing opportunity to work with Chopard to shoot a social media campaign for their Happy Diamonds jewelry, and their Happy Sport Mini Auto watches, which you see my lovely model Beatrice and I wearing in today’s post.

The #AreYouHappyDiamonds campaign is all about making one feel confident, energetic, happy, free, and playful – in Chopard’s very own words, the watches and jewelry embody the “contagious joie de vivre” feminine spirit.

In most of the photos today, I’m seen wearing the steel strapped Happy Sport Mini Automatic Watch, which marries both steel and diamonds together to give the overall design a rather sporty yet feminine vibe. All the Happy Sport comes with moving diamonds included in its faces, why moving instead of embedded diamonds? In Karin Scheufele words, “Diamonds are happiest when they are free!”

Chopard’s jewelry also comes in quirky pendants – with diamonds included of course - to give the pieces a more unique and youthful appeal, I mean, there’s my favourite good luck charm pendant dubbed “The Hand of Fatima”, which is literally a pendant in a a shape of a hand, with a diamond included in the middle of its palm, representative of the lucky eye.

Thank you Chopard for working with me on this super fun campaign, and major love to a great team behind this as well! 

You guys get some love too! Present this post or my any of my #dreaxchopard instagram posts, and mention #AreYouHappyDiamonds in Chopard’s Ngee Ann City boutique from 24th to 26th April to obtain complimentary gift. Limited quantities available.

Franklin Wharf










Dress: The Blush IncShoes: El-Ska
Bag: Kate Spade
Shades: Ray Ban
Of all the jetties I've been to in the world, Tasmania's Franklin Wharf has got to be one of my favourites. It is not incredibly posh or elaborately filled with luxury yachts, neither is it close to any islands for one to hop on a yacht to get away to. But I do love it for its quaintness, quietness, the view of Mount Wellington you can get from the wharf, and the surrounding traditional architecture. Franklin Wharf and Hampden Road (towards Battery Square) are just a few of my various spots for OOTD-taking, so don't forget to head down there whenever you're in Tassie!

Today's post features a The Blush Inc striped dress, this time giving the nautical look a more chic vibe feel with its feminine silhouette.

Etam in Boracay























Etam Singapore 
A few weeks ago, Amanda, Christabel and I made a whirlwind 3 Day 2 Night trip to Boracay, Philippines to shoot for French-born swim and loungewear, Etam. It was the easiest trip to pack for: each of us only brought one duffel bag each. Don't look at me, I'm amazed myself! But I guess it's not that hard when all you need to pack are swimsuits, bikinis, and kaftans (we really did intend to spend the entire day by the beach and the pool)!

We stayed at Shangri-La Boracay in one of their amazing Tree House Villas, a vila with a view and living space like I've never encountered. It was only when I finally had time to put aside my camera, laptop and phone, take a short lie-down by our villa's outdoor jacuzzi-cum-deck that I fully realised why people fall in love with the carefree no holds barred spirit of Boracay, and its calming and inviting white beaches.

The values of friendship, love and sisterhood are manifested in the outfits of Etam. Bel, Amanda and I had so much fun dressing up with the adorable prints and designs of their loungewear and classic-but-trendy silhouettes of their swimwear. Most of what you see Amanda and I wearing in today's post are from Etam.
