Happy Holidays from Phuket. Hope you had a Merry Christmas with your family and loved ones. We are loving our relaxing vacation in Thailand. Beaches, pools, and Island adventures is just what we needed.  Staying at the Westin Phuket Siray Bay, our time in Phuket has been lovely. Yesterday, we visited a Tiger sanctuary and dined on the top of  Khao Rang Hill in Phuket Town at Tunk Ka Cafe. The view was amazing and so was the food! I’ll be sharing more of my favorite sites and places to eat in Phuket soon. On the outfit front, I loved wearing Singapore designer Aijek’s flowy white dress on the beach! Shop the dress on Rent A Dress SG  and use 15% off code ‘SOCIALANDSTYLE15’ for any purchases from Rent A Dress SG over $50. What are your plans for the holidays?!

Singapore Holiday Bloggers Brunch!

What I love most about the holidays is spending time with family and friends. When I first found out I was moving to Singapore, I was a little sad that I would be missing the holidays with my family and friends in the States. Thankfully, I have made a great group of friends in SG and we were able to celebrate the holidays together. My two favorite bloggers, Suhina and Richa,  and I decided to have a bloggers brunch near the iconic Raffles Hotel in Singapore. While we all have different styles, we picked outfits that represented our individual personalities and of course had a photo  shoot too (since that’s what bloggers do!) As you know, I love midi dresses and found the perfect ML Monique Lhuillier lippy dress at Rent A Dress SG. I asked my Instagram and Snap fam to help me pick which dress to wear – and everyone loved the Lippy Dress!  As a thank you, I wanted to share a 15% off code ‘SOCIALANDSTYLE15’ for any purchases from Rent A Dress SG over $50. On my end, I am getting ready to leave for Phuket on Sunday and look forward to a week of relaxation. We will be back in SG for New Years and I can’t wait to share our holiday with you on Insta Stories and Snap. Happy Holidays!

#SingaporeSpotlight: Linen & More

2017 Let’s Do It! As we head into the New Year, I’m getting ready for an amazing 2017. While I shy away from resolutions, I decide on 3-5 goals to focus my thoughts and decisions for the year ahead. I typically spend the days before New Year’s Eve relaxing and spending time with loved ones. This helps me to clear my head and allow myself to think about my priorities, goals, and passion. During this time, I also reflect on the direction and purpose of Social and Style. Blogging is a part of my life that takes time and energy. I want to make sure I am using my time and energy wisely. When I started Social and Style, my vision for the blog was to be a platform to inspire readers. From the #PowerWomen series to supporting local businesses, my goal for Social and Style is to uplift others. In Singapore, I am learning more about the startup scene and local small businesses. Each founder I meet, always inspires me with their story and journey. I look forward to introducing you to these entrepreneurs in a new series #SingaporeSpotlight, starting with Manisha Gattani founder of Linen & More!

The Perfect Holiday Gift: Stylish And Functional

Gift giving is one of my favorite things to do. I love picking out the perfect present for my family, friends and loved ones. While some people stick to gift cards, I like to find something that the person will use, enjoy and remember. Personally, some of the best gifts I have received are presents that I use every day. For instance, my friend gave me a personalized mug for my grad school graduation that I use every day. Each morning, as I sip my morning chai, I remember my friend and her thoughtfulness. This holiday season, my blogger friends and I decided to have a holiday brunch at Raffles Hotel. To add to the fun, we had a Secret Santa. Since my Secret Santa gift was for a smart, talented, fashionista – my first thought was something fashion related! Since moving to Singapore, my favorite fashion accessory has been my sunglasses. With sunshine in SG, I never leave home without my sunnies! After a lot of thought, I decided sunglasses would be the perfect gift for my blogger bestie. Since sunglasses can be quite personal, I headed to Spectacle Hut to find the perfect pair!

// WeBarre Singapore GuavaPass //

After joining GuavaPass in Singapore, I’ve tried new classes and studios almost every week. Through the subscription, I’ve discovered classes, studios, and instructors that I love. Although trying a new class is not always easy. Finding the right studio and not knowing what to expect can seem daunting. After a few bumps, (e.g., getting lost on my way to class!), I know what to expect when trying a new class. Now when I try a new class, I get more out of my workouts and have fun. I’ve learned it’s all about mindset, along with a few other tips I’ve put together to share with you!
