Hi…I’m Back!

I want to start this post by saying I’m back and I missed you! Sometimes, you need to take a break from blogging and focus on what matters most in your life. More on that in upcoming posts… While I never expected the break to be this long, I am thankful that I took time to reflect, mature, and be thankful for what I have in life. As you may remember from previous posts, the move to Singapore went smoothly and I am proud of myself for adapting to my new home so quickly. Soon after the New Year, I went back to the US to meet my new baby niece. It was then that I realized I needed to pause and be more present in my life. Blogging had started to become a main priority rather than a creative outlet that I loved. Thank you for all your messages and patience during this time.  So many of you wrote to me checking to see if I was ok and that meant so much. Now that I feel rested, I am full of ideas to write about! While I was away, I learned I loved fuss-free healthy cooking, read a ton of books (I can’t wait to share with you), and most important – I want to get back to writing about topics that inspire readers. Relaunching the #PowerWomen series is something I am excited about, along with lots of travel posts (next up our trip to Bali)!

Singapore Holiday Bloggers Brunch!

ML Monique Lhuillier Rent A Dress SG

Dress // ML Monique Lhuillier – Rent A Dress SG // 

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!

Celebrating One Month In Singapore!

Nin9 Studios Social and Style

Today is our one month anniversary in Singapore! The wonderful friends we have made in SG have made Singapore feel like home. So many people have welcomed us with open arms and gone out of their way to help us settle in. For me, blogging has been a great way to meet like minded creative people and entrepreneurs. I feel blessed to have connected with one of the most talented photographers and makeup artists I have ever worked with, Vinod and Hetal from Nin9 Studios and Makeup and Hair artist – Gayathri Menon. When I mentioned to them my one month in Singapore was coming up, we decided to celebrate! We came up with the idea to do a photo shoot at the iconic National Gallery of Singapore. Thanks to Rent A Dress SG, I was able to find the perfect Badgley Mischka dress for the occasion. Since my Instagram and Snap fam helped me pick this dress, I wanted to say thank you by sharing a 15% off code ‘SOCIALANDSTYLE15’ for any purchases from Rent A Dress SG over $50. I will always remember this celebration and wanted to share more about my dream team!
