The first weekend of CNY is over! How did yours go? Tell me in the comments (:
By the way… here are some articles I’ve written that were published recently on styleXstyle.com!
Lucky Blue Smith and his sisters appeared on my Tumblr dash about a year ago, but only recently did they start making headlines. It’s weird to see someone I saw everyday on my dash and Instagram feed on Vogue.com and runways. Anyway, it was an avalanche of jealousy writing this! I pitched it after writing the Gigi vs. Bella article and basically spent a day stalking all the Smith’s Instagram accounts. Oh, well.
I spent hours on this – it was kind of horrifying coming to terms with how many apps I’d tried, how many apps there are out there, and just how many people use them. Are we really so socially handicapped as a species that we depend on algorithms and technology to find us our lifelong mates?
(Aside, I’ve begun reading Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari (included in my Christmas Wishlist), which my friends kindly got me for my 20th birthday. It’s funny and interesting, but I feel like the humour cushions the harsh reality of modern romance. But it’s an interesting read, I’m about 60% through at the time of writing this.)
Wow, I’m really bringing it for all the single ladies (and guys). This wasn’t that fun to write, but it really opened my eyes to how not-bad it is to be single in Singapore. There’s not much stigma in doing things alone (though it’s growing), and there are lots of events and things you can do alone! Check it out for both date and treat-yourself ideas.
