Call It The Blues

Saturday, November 11, 2017 Simone Foster 4 Comments









What a rough week ! I was down with a viral flu and lost my voice. Felt sick as a dog and yet having to pull myself through the day with daily routines of houswork, dog walks and seeing to the family meals wore me out totally!

The only colour I could see was just the blues... finally as I started to feel a little better - it was time to head out the doors for a little breather and a much needed good cup of coffee!

I have been seeing so many 11.11 sale specials from various online portals that it was driving me nuts! Wanting to buy so many things but it's just the pull and gimmick of getting an item on a sale ( I bet it was not that much of a discount to be very honest) that had me scrolling site after site for great deals and even adding stuff to my cart that I don't even need - just because it was on sale. Then just at the final moment when I was about to click " checkout" I had a moment of awakening and decided to clear the cart instead! And there you go... 11.11 singles day sale, nothing in the cart and no shopping done....

And that's why they call it the blues!!

Tickle Me Pink

Saturday, November 04, 2017 Simone Foster 2 Comments










For some reason ( and this may actually spill the beans on my actual age...) but I started to feel a little nostalgic and reminiscent of the past recently. Particularly so of my teenage years and uni days. 

And so, I tapped on iTunes my favourite band of all time -Tears for Fears, and immediately the memories started flowing. I recall how I painstakingly recorded my favourite songs of the band on a casette tape and played them on my walkman with headphones on as I sat on the school bus every morning who picked me up as early as 6am in the darkness, to head for school.

Their songs were of extreme vision and each song had so much meaning to the various stages of my life. It shaped and impressed the views of the world on me at that time. The struggles of mankind. And to this day, those songs still hold such strong political meaning.

Back to this playful look, its no denying I am into blush pink at the moment and with the embroidered detailing on the neckline as well as the long sleeves, this was a hit for me!

I hope you enjoyed this look and please share with me which is your favourite band of all time. It would be fun for us to reminisce together.

White Lace Blouse with Hollow Design
Here's another treat for you. A trendy online portal I discovered of which the outfits are simply divine. Lately, besides going into the blush pink rage, I am suddenly feeling extremely " laced-up" and this particular top caught my eye immediately as I came across their Facebook ad. That is when I discovered Yoins - a treasure trove of great Fall fashion and more...

Slip Sliding Away:: Gingham Slides and Maxi Dress

Sunday, October 29, 2017 Simone Foster 1 Comments












Another crazy busy week. Somehow I can't seem to find enough hours in the day to do everything that I had planned to do. Struggling as the day goes along and with the sweltering heat ranging from 33 - 35 degrees celsius, if I had the option of running my errands in swimwear I would!! But I don't have the body of a 20 something anymore and before I scare people off the street, I had better stick to my long maxi dresses which offer comfort and cover up!

Found these cute Gingham slides in Cotton On and had to have them. They are so pretty with the exaggerated bow and my bamboo Cult Gaia inspired bag which I got online ( and I believe many bloggers have been trending these all through Summer) was the perfect match for each other. Of course, I took my crap out of the bag before this shoot but believe you me, this bag could fit a fair bit.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this casual look and have yourselves a great weekend ahead!

Blushing Pink

Monday, October 23, 2017 Simone Foster 2 Comments









Celebrated Mom's 78th birthday this weekend ! Was too crazy busy to sit down and get a full post out to you guys. So here's a quick start to the week. I have noticed that I am styling more pinks these couple of weeks, somehow it's my current colour of the month.

I love how a light black and white cover-up works well against the pink to give the outfit a little kick and more so, that it also helps to keep me warm from those blasting air conditioning in the malls. My word - it had been sweltering hot these last few days in Singapore. So here we are again, melting in the heat outdoors and shivering our butt off in the malls.

Hope you enjoyed this post and you can shop this look below.

Top : Cotton On
Pants : H&M
Cover-up : Nordstrom Rack
Bag : Katie Judith
Bag Strap : Shein.com 
Jewellery  : Lovisa
Shoes : Chanel

Jeweluxe Singapore 2017

Monday, October 16, 2017 Simone Foster 4 Comments




What a weekend it has been. My fellow influencer @cherylnicolesoh and myself was invited by Elle Singapore to attend Jeweluxe 2017. A curated showcase of exquisite, elegant, timeless and innovative jewellery, timepieces and fashion exhibition from all over the world, it was certainly a bling-bling night to remember.


Indonesian Designer - Rusly Tjohnardi's gowns was the perfect compliment to the exquisite jewellery showcased on the runway.
We attended Edition Two ( 11 - 15 October 2017) which was a curatorial showcase of European and Asian excellence. We were simply blown away with the unique jewellery pieces - all an art piece of their own. The craftsmanship and detailing of every piece was just so captivating that one can only appreciate why each and every piece was worth it's large price tag.

" Magerit" certainly got me hooked as soon as I walked through those doors.










A most lovely treat to see my name up there in lights! I had to meet the designer herself - Simone!



Her pieces truly reflect her beauty and elegance and I can certainly relate to each and every gorgeous piece in the display showcases.

Yet, another designer which also caught my attention was Doris Baer from Baer Jewels. I was particularly drawn to her water pearl collection. Each and every pearl was as nature had wanted it to be, not cultivated but unique in its own way. All she did was put them together and added a little silver beak and " voila" that pearl actually " transformed" into a little bird... simply marvellous!

Based in Hong Kong, Doris's designs is certainly an epitome of east meets west.


And so, before the night ended, @cherylnicolesoh and myself had to have a picture taken together to remember this whimsical evening.





I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek into Jeweluxe Singapore 2017. You can view more of the designers on jeweluxesingapore.com
