Eid with Adlina Anis

Adlina Anis is certainly no stranger in the local fashion industry.

Her love for fashion is undeniable.

Her designs are unique, timeless and classy yet simple to don.

When I grow up, I want to be just like her.

 

 aa-3

“I’ve always loved exploring new ways of wearing the hijab and experiment with designs and colours. It wasn’t easy to find what I wanted in the market so I sourced for fabrics and made my own shawls. I started getting queries from family and friends and that’s when I thought it timely to start the brand.”

– Adlina Anis

GREAT MOVE, ADLINA!

And this year, I got to say that she impressed me and everyone else even more with her Eid Exclusives.

This is her Embellished Necklace Chiffon Shawl in Seashell.

This one alone comes in more than twenty colours!

 aa-2

I actually went “WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH” when I saw the Eid Exclusives, and I had another round of “WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH” when I saw her tutorials.

I realised how extremely easy it actually is to don the scarves by Adlina Anis.

Adlina Anis never fails to upload tutorials in her Youtube, Facebook and Instagram so that her customers know how exactly to achieve that certain look for a particular scarf or shawl.

Look her up in Youtube!

Here’s how you wear the Embellished Necklace Chiffon Shawl.


Besides the Eid Exclusives which I personally think every Muslim woman must own, you can also purchase her bestseller designs.

Having led the trends for Muslimahs over the last 2 years, you wouldn’t want to miss this opportunity to visit her showroom to feel and see the variety that probably only Adlina Anis can deliver.

Look no further than Singapore. In fact, look no further than Lorong 23 Geylang, because that’s where Adlina Anis showroom is situated.

If I may add, the showroom is air-conditioned and simply awesome, so you can really shop at ease there.

Adlina Anis will help you find the matching shawl for your Hari Raya outfit, so do bring your outfit along when you make that trip down to the showroom.

If that’s not enough, Adlina Anis will even teach you how to style the shawls.

Kiss from a Rose (Valley.co)

Just the other day, I had to attend an event which required me to don the hijab. Now, as you would have known already, I have yet to don the hijab on a permanent basis. I am not saying that I am not intending to at all especially when age is already catching up!

One day, I will. Insya’allah.

So since I am not an expert yet when it comes to the styling of hijab, I would usually spend quite some time to pin it all over just to hold my hijab in place. I would end up poking my head most of the time too. OUCH. How do you Muslimahs even do it? And then I would look at myself in the mirror, give a disgusted look, remove the hijab, and then style the hijab all over again. Just like a bad hair day, I would normally experience bad hijab day too.

Naelofar Pleated Chiffon Hijab is indeed god-sent!

All I have to do is just to put it on and I am good to go! No need for pins and no need for ironing even! Super comfortable, most importantly! In fact, it requires minimal styling so all I have to do it to adjust it a bit so that both the hijab and my face look centralized.

So since it looks so nice, I must take lots of #selfie

Shopaholic Me.

I am a stay at home mummy on normal days. That means I stay at home to perform most tasks.

Let’s not include the days I am out for meetings, events, shopping and more shopping.

Yes, I love shopping so much.

Sometimes, I just shop and forget all about the stuff that I have purchased.

Sometimes, I like what I buy and I will buy the same thing in other colours.

Sometimes I have to shop again for the same stuff because they just go…missing…in my wardrobe.

TRUE STORY.

Going to shopping centres is really fun on days when you feel like you have all the energy in the world. But imagine if you have to walk from one end of the shopping centre to the other end just to shop/look for something. And let’s not talk about their opening hours.

Wouldn’t it be perfect to just face your computer at home, shop online at anytime of the day, search for the product(s) that you need at a lower price, add to cart, click check out, and just wait for the items to arrive?

WELL, YOU CAN DO JUST THAT AT WWW.SGSHOP.COM

THE ENGLISH VERSION OF TAOBAO, THIS IS!

The best thing about SGshop is the fact that you are not shopping at a retail online shop but online wholesalers from Chinese E-shopping websites. That’s right – no retailers and no distributors but direct from the supplier with very low price!

YOU DON’T WANT, MEH?

Now, wholesalers also mean that you are enjoying your items at the wholesale price!

 SGshop has almost everything!

 Don’t believe me?

I SHOW YOU!

CUTE CLOTHES FOR YOUR KIDS?

 SG-1

 

WIGS PERHAPS FOR THAT UPCOMING THEME PARTY?

 SG-11

 

BRIDES AND GROOMS TO BE, LOOK AT HOW CHEAP THESE GIFT BOXES/JARS ARE!

SG-4SG-3SG-7

 

HOMEOWNERS, LOOK AT WHAT I FOUND!

THE DECALS ARE SOOOOOOOOOOOOO CHEAP!

 SG-8

 SG-9

 

CLOCKS FOR YOUR WALL? THEY HAVE APLENTY!

 
SG-10

OR JUST SOME DISPLAY TRAYS FOR YOUR HOME?

SG-5

Step 1: Choose the products you want.

Simply search for the items that you want and click ADD TO CART.

Step 2: Submit your order.

 After you have selected all the items that you wish to order, review the items in your shopping cart and then click PLACE ORDER.

Step 3: Make payment

Click PAY THE ORDER.

To make payment for the order, you will have to first recharge your SG Shop account by transferring via:

  • iBanking
  • Bank/ATM transfer
  • Paypal/eNets/Credit Card

Below is my shopping cart! Bought some goodies for myself and the girls!

 

 sg-12

That said, I was soooooo excited when there was delivery at my doorstep by SG Shop!

 sg-1

I chose to have my items shipped via Special Air.

Besides Special Air, they have four other kinds of shipping methods for you to choose from.

You can read up more HERE 

Once the items reach Singapore, you will be able to select your delivery or collection choice!

They have the following for you to choose from:

  • Advanced Delivery
  • Budget Delivery
  • MRT Station Delivery
  • Self Collection at Warehouse

As for me, I chose Budget Delivery!

My loots took only about 3 working days to reach me!

OKAY WHAT!

So want to see what I bought?

An off shoulder dress and a cute navy blue skirt!

 sg-2

And I managed to get for the Nadyas three of these cute tutu leggings!

 sg-3

 

5 items in all, and they cost less than SGD30!

With shipping and everything, I spent only a total of SGD55!

OH MAI GAWDDDDDDD.

Budget shopping at its best, only at SGshop!

Be A Star!

Just the other day, we decided to drop by Tokyo Star Optical because Hidayat needed a new pair of glasses. So since we have heard of the opening of Tokyo Star Optical’s first store in Singapore, of course we would want to check it out!

What I especially like about the Tokyo Eyewear Culture is the fact that they see eyewear as a fashion staple. What this means is this; you do not wear glasses just for the sake of seeing. Nowadays, different eyewear can match a different outfit in order to exude a different style of personality. Do you agree?

Tokyo Star Optical has an extensive range of over 1,200 distinctive style elements. It is true! We were so spoilt for choices when we were there. You know how you will often go to various eyewear stores only to find the same designs everywhere? Well, I can guarantee you that Tokyo Star Optical will offer you a totally unique collection of eyewear, if you are all for being different from others.

Hidayat had his eye examination done first just to see if there was any change in his eye power.

Well, of course the girls were super excited to witness everything.

 IMG_3058

Next, it was time to choose the perfect eyewear!

 image3

Hidayat could not decide initially and tried on almost everything. One of the staff assisted us all the way and helped us in making the final choice.

He even tried on the shades! Super cool collection they have there , I tell you!

 IMG_3071

We could not stop ourselves from trying out the different kinds of eyewear there.

 IMG_3077

THIS IS THE FINAL CHOICE.

 IMG_3073

SUPER NICE RIGHT?

OF COURSE WE WOULD WANT TO CHOOSE SOMETHING FROM THE TOKYO BEST SELLERS’ RANGE!

Meanwhile, the Nadyas were having fun at the Tokyo Junior section.

 IMG_3067

They tried on so many different kinds of glasses in various colours and designs.

 IMG_3069

Sharleez even asked me whether her eyesight is indeed perfect.

Can you roughly guess why she asked me that?

Come on, no prize for correctly guessing why. LOL.

Yes, she wanted to also own a pair of glasses!

I remember those good old days when I was about the same age as Sharleez. I saw so many of my classmates wearing glasses and most of them happened to also be really smart. I thought it was pretty cool to wear glasses and secretly wished that I would own one pair too.

Just look at my cute patooties goofing around with glasses on!

So intellectually cute! LOL.

 IMG_3059

 IMG_3061

Next, they asked me to take photos of them individually.

Smart thinking, girls! Must be the spectacles. LOL

 IMG_3075

 IMG_3065

IMG_3068

Glasses can be a part of your fashion accessories, but sometimes people will laugh at you for wearing them. And then you will get so conscious and think twice about wearing glasses. But do not blame these people entirely. Looking good in glasses is really about getting the right pair for your face and then rocking the style with confidence. Let’s face it, how often have we seen people who do not look as good in glasses? Well, it is not because they cannot wear glasses. It is simply because the glasses do not suit their face or personality.

In other words,

DO NOT CHOOSE GLASSES BLINDLY.

(OH, PUN INTENDED, DEFINITELY. LOL.)

So how do you do it right, then?

Like how do you even decide which glasses will match you?

  1. Pick glasses that reflect your personality.
  2. Frame shape should contrast with your face shape.
  3. Frame size should be in scale with your face size.

Let me help you out a bit here!

Round face:

 tokyo-round

Square face:

 tokyo-square

Heart face:

 tokyo-heart

Oval face:

 tokyo-oval

And most importantly, do not act any different just because you have glasses on. You know the most common stereotype about people with glasses? They are supposedly geeks or nerds. So yeah, just be yourself even with glasses on and act normally, please.

The best thing about Tokyo Star Optical is,

THE GLASSES ARE NOT EVEN COSTLY TO BEGIN WITH!

I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this brochure, which the kind staff of Tokyo Star Optical gave me.

SAM_0191

That’s right, you can enjoy 2 frames plus lens at just $86 each!

But you need to hurry though as the promotion is only valid until the end of November 2014!

YOU HAVE ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT, MY FRIEND!

“But how long will I need to wait before I can collect my glasses?”

FIFTEEN MINUTES ONLY!

AND ESPECIALLY TO ALL MY BLOG READERS, MENTION ETRANGLE TO ENJOY 10% OFF WHEN YOU PURCHASE ANY EYEWEAR FROM TOKYO STAR OPTICAL!

 Where are they at?

 IMG_3060

Hidayat was indeed a very happy customer of Tokyo Star Optical!

You can be just as happy as him too!

You know what to do. 😀

Get Your Sparkle On.

I grew up to Barbie™.

And I am so pretty sure almost every girl grew up to her too. Don’t lie.

So when I got the tickets to watch Barbie™ Live! yesterday, of course I was one happy girl.

YUP, GIRL.

DID I SAY ANYTHING WRONG THERE? 

 

Barbie-Live-630x210

Actually, I was informed about the free tickets like two weeks ago. I excitedly told everyone around me like Tatek and Nurul. In fact, I told almost everybody..all except for The Nadyas! I figured I would surprise them on the day of the show itself.

Oh believe me, it was pretty hard for me to keep secrets from my girls, especially if the secret involves something which I know for sure they will like. All I told them was,

“Mummy has a secret for you girls. You will know what it is on Tuesday, 10 September!”

Of course they tested their luck almost every single day prior to the big show. You know how super curious kids are. Oh let’s not even mention kids here because even I am one super curious person. I will not feel at ease until I know what the secret is. So do not ever EVER try to tell me a secret halfway. It’s either you tell me all, or you do not tell me at all. My curiosity will not only kill me, but you as well. Just saying. LOL.

And so they went…

“Mummy, please just whisper to me what the secret is all about.”

“Mummy, is the secret Universal Studios?”

“I know what the secret is! But I cannot tell you!”

“Is it already Tuesday? What day is it today?”

CANNOT TELL. CANNOT TELL.

CANNOT TELL!!

I thought I had it all nicely planned. I THOUGHT.

Yesterday, hours before the show, I put this up in my Instagram.

barbie2

And right after I put it up, I placed my handphone on the table and forgot all about it. Suddenly, I noticed that Sharleez had that super shocked expression on her face. Oh-oh.

“MUMMY, OH MY GOD I AM SO SORRY I READ YOUR INSTAGRAM. I KNOW THE SURPRISE ALREADY. SORRY MUMMY.”

URGHHHHHHH. SO MUCH FOR THE SECRET AND THE PLANNING.

Believe me, Sharleez felt so bad about finding out because she knew just how excited I was about revealing the surprise to them. Great. What’s next, right?

“SHARLEEZ, JUST KEEP QUIET AND DON’T REVEAL IT TO YOUR SISTERS. OR ELSE, WE WILL GO STRAIGHT HOME.”

Yup, I whispered that to her. I was actually sort of threatening her. No way would she spoil it for me. LOL.

Finally, it was time to reveal when we went to MBS BOX OFFICE to collect the tickets. Imagine how exhilarated my twins were. They were so pleased with me. My ego got higher. I kept asking them to thank me. Such a great feeling of satisfaction, man. LOL.

barbie1

So anyway, it’s still the September holidays, and Barbie™ Live! is still showing until 14 September 2013.

How to get them tickets? CLICK HERE! 

Tickets are selling at :

VIP – S$125 (includes photo opportunity with cast) A Reserve – S$95  B Reserve – S$75  C Reserve – S$55  D Reserve – S$35

We truly enjoyed the entire show. Barbie™ teaches her best friend Teresa™ to be brave, believe in herself, and embrace the power of true friendship through lesson learned from her Princess movies like Swan Lake, Princess & the Popstar, and Mariposa & The Fairy Princess. So if you and your girl(s) have been following all of Barbie™ Princess DVDs, then you will feel really connected watching Barbie™ Live!

And no, I totally did not feel like a bimbo watching Barbie™ Live!

It’s not just about the good looks in this so-called perfect world because according to Barbie™, nobody is perfect.

NOT EVEN Barbie™.
