Ummmm.... no, mum. No, not quite.

Having recently started full-time work, my appreciation for sunny weekends has more than quadrupled in the span of two weeks. Don't get me wrong; I still do love a good sleep-in, but it is a whole lot easier to roll out before 9 when you've got outfits to shoot and daylight to catch! Yesterday, we headed to Newtown for a change of scenery, with plans to hop across four dessert bars for a little side project I'm working on. Two hours and barely one pit stop later, we're stuffing ourselves with Malteaser and Oreo pies (thank you, The Pie Tin) and calling it a wrap. 
Weak, I know. 
But hey, more reason to trek out again next weekend, no? 

In outfit news, this comfy coatigan with gorgeous back detailing has definitely got me covered this autumn. 
I actually can't wait for cooler weather - so bring on the slouchy, weighty knits, please!

As always, Singapore was amazing!

I arrived home last week with newfound appreciation for comfortable shoes, satiated (for a few weeks, maybe) fish ball noodle soup cravings and of course, a bit of a work wardrobe revamp.

Because six straight days of eating and intense shopping teaches a girl a thing or two, let's go with my top discoveries from the trip:

  1. I will never get enough of street snackfood. I'm talking fried fish balls on sticks, soaked in chilli sauce. Oh. My. Yum.
  2. Trying to get a perfect Instagram photo of ice-cream-filled Taiyaki in sweltering Singaporean heat will almost always end badly.
  3. Bugis Street markets should be one of your first stops for good bargain buys. Far East Plaza, on the other hand, is still one of my favourite spots for shoes!
  4. When a shopkeeper starts a conversation with you in a language you don't understand, don't nod and pretend you do. Conversations and questions escalate quickly, and many awkward, uncomfortable laughs will be had.
  5. I have been missing out on the joy of crispy condensed milk buns all my life. Now on the hunt for the best ones in Sydney... (P.S. If anyone has any suggestions, @chicachia please!)

I hope you're all really well, and I do apologise for being away for too long!
Promise there's a video coming soon :)
