Haze Haze, Blow Away.

Am so glad that the haze seems better these 2 days.
I have been rather upset over the haze issue
due to the inconsiderate comments and snide remarks I’ve been hearing,
be it over the haze or the purchasing/wearing of masks.

No doubt the haze doesn’t kill you immediately,
nor cause major illnesses instantly,
but it is an undeniable fact that the haze is hazardous and will have aftermaths.
Hence, I don’t see anything wrong with people queueing up to purchase N95 masks for personal health reasons or for their loved ones.
It is about taking good care and loving yourself and your loved ones.
I don’t understand why there are people who label people who love themselves as:
“crazy”, “kiasi” and “lame”
Isn’t it unnecessary?
:(

One of the most nasty comment I’ve came across:
“HAHA, I’m so going to laugh at the ones who bought the N95 masks and then the haze goes away and it becomes useless.”
I. just. don’t. know. what. to say.
Le sighs.

I sincerely hope the haze goes away soon.
But meanwhile, despite the improved haze conditions,
please continue take the necessary  steps  and take care of yourself . :)

Unhappy haze aside,
let me just share with you these travel magazine a lovely customer sent me!
Lonely Planet Magazine Asia.
https://www.facebook.com/lonelyplanetmagasia

May/June 2013 Issue.

I also receive Sept/Oct 2012 Issue.
They were really great reads,
featuring lots of handy travel information and beautiful places to visit!
I especially love the sections on “Easy Trips” as they recommend places that makes awesome short trips,
definitely something great for people like me as I could hardly get away from work.
Haha. Suddenly the list of places I wish to visit just became longer. :O
Every flip of pages reveals beautiful pictures of places around the world,
and they sure feed my wanderlust even though I’m not physically there. :)
Thank you Natalie (if you’re reading this), for the magazines and for the recommended reads!
I really love them!
:)

Saturday was spent running some errands and preparing for the SALE post today!
If you haven’t shopped yet, you can grab some great deals here!

Halfway through the errands, my attention diverted when I passed by Uniqlo.
Haha.
And of course, I didn’t leave empty handed.

My Hello Kitty Tee, with the ubberly cute Hello Kitty Uniqlo Paper Bag.
This design was the last piece on the shelf, and it was my ideal kind of Hello Kitty top.
Subtle, with just the face. :)
Oh, in case you’re pondering, yes I’m a Hello Kitty fan!

This is my laptop’s wallpaper and iPhone’s wallpaper.
And the matching Hello Kitty tee really completes it.
So insanely happy with my buy. :)

Dinner was at Poulet, Vivocity.
The boy ordered their Rotisserie Half Chicken with Cranberry Sauce, while I had mine with Mushroom Sauce.

My Rotisserie Half Chicken in a bed of Mushroom Sauce.
The chicken was quite tender but not juicy somehow and the Mushroom Sauce was a tad too sweet for my liking.
The boy found the Cranberry Sauce one pretty good though and worth a try.

We order mushroom soup to share as well but I forgot to snap a picture of it as I was too excited to dig in.
Haha, and I must say the mushroom soup is really good.
It tasted different from all the mushroom soups I’ve had before,
there is so much mushrooms and the cream wasn’t too overpowering nor too thin.
I think it looks really yummy as well because we overheard the table next to us ordering a bowl to try after commenting on how good the soup looks.
Oh, and they actually already requested for bill before ordering the soup.
Haha. Do give it a try if you’re there!

Hello there, I’m Karen!

Hello there!

Karen speaking. *waves*

After much contemplation, I’ve decided to begin my attempt at blogging.  I’ve lost touch with blogging for years as I can barely keep up with maintaining one, but I’ll give it one more try. So do pardon me if  my posts ever get too boring, heh, I’ll do my best!

Since this is my first blog post, let me put up a disclaimer.

I’m a very very long-winded person.

Haha. All my friends can attest to that, and they always wonder why I can’t keep things short and sweet.  I guess it sometimes get so bad that they drift off halfway listening to my stories, but I’m never too tired to continue till the end. That’s just how I am! Some would probably have noticed from Formspring, ask.fm, or through emails I send. Hence, if I ever get too long-winded in my blog posts, I apologise first hand. Ok, I better stop here before it goes on. :)

For the ones who have always been curious about the “Karen” behind the emails and basically almost everything about Fashion Martini, yes, I’m the sole owner of Fashion Martini. Fashion Martini is my baby, started in year 2009, 4 years back. Due to hectic school load, Fashion Martini went on a hiatus for a long long time, until last year when I’ve decided to bring Fashion Martini back in full force. :)

It has been a year since Fashion Martini begin in full force, and I just want to extend my thanks to every single ladies who has stick by and support us since the very beginning. It won’t have been possible without you ladies. :) And thank you for the 4K likes on our Facebook Fan Page (for that, we’ve something lined up for you!)

Moving forward, Fashion Martini is coming up with our manufactured line soon! We’ve already launched 2 manufactured items a while back, in Collection 55 and Collection 59, 2 lovely rompers which I personally can’t keep my hands off, if you can’t remember, let me refresh your memory. :)

Deborah Casual Floral Romper

Joaquin Floral Racer Romper

No doubt Deborah Romper is a remake of our hot-selling romper, but hand picking the fabric for the remake sure was a happy moment for me. :) Joaquin Romper was designed from scratch as I have a thing for anything racer cut in shoulder line. I actually rejected 3 samples prior to the final one (talk about being fussy haha), just to make sure the cutting was perfect.  And based on customers’ feedbacks, I’m really delighted to know that the romper has been an awesome purchase for them. :)

If you are following us on instagram/facebook, you would have known that I did some fabric shopping for our upcoming manufactured lined! I can’t put down in words how happy fabric shopping is, the pretty fabrics (especially florals) chase away any blues literally. Maybe it works just for me (please tell me if you’re the same), haha, I actually visit Spotlight when I visit Plaza Sing to browse the fabrics there for little perks occasionally. #cheapthrillslikethismakesmehappy

So yeaps, remember to stay tuned for our manufactured line!! :)

Enough of Fashion Martini for now! Here is just a snapshot of something I just had on Monday afternoon!

Shiok Maki! – I think this maki needs no introduction as it has been viral on instagram since quite a while back and have since shot to fame. :) Have found this hidden gem a few years back due to a friend’s introduction, but due to the long queues and renovation, I haven’t been back for close to half a year or more! So I’m really glad that I got my Shiok Maki fix finally! Though I have to admit that I was quite disappointed because the Maki has shrunk in size (by quite alot) since the very first time I had it 2 years ago. But, that doesn’t change the fact that it is really shiok, heh!

Collection #23 Preview

Oooops, our bad for not having updated this space!! But we’re back with another smashing update for our upcoming collection!! :)

Have you seen the previews on our Facebook Page yet? We’re super loving the cheery layout we made for this collection! Specially designed to lighten up your boring days. Heh!

The thing we love about this collection is none other than the many colours! I personally feel that dressing up in gorgeous colours never fails to make you look good, unless your skin tone doesn’t match well with the colour you’re wearing. But bright colours just makes anyone look awesome and chic, don’t you feel so? It always kinda puts a glow on your face and make you feel ubberly good about yourself. Haha if you girls get what I mean! :P

So, here are my picks for this collection! :)

Edlyn Polka Dot Skater Dress

Polka Dots are just super love for me, but aside from that, just look at the skater bottom, so so so PRETTY. I like how the skater bottoms sways so nicely when you’re walking in this piece. It makes you feel feminine like, INSTANTLY! Hahaha. It can also be worn for work by throwing on a blazer, so what’s there not to love about this dress? We’re totally loving it!

Roxanne Floral Pleated Ruffles Top

Gorgeous pleats and floral prints, excellent workmanship and superb cutting. Enough said!

Candilicious Colourblock Top (Turquoise, Kelly Green)

For the bright colours lovers, how can you do without this piece?! This piece comes in Mustard and Coral Pink as well, but they will be launched the next collection. This is exactly the kind of clothes I’m referring to when I say it makes you look good without fail. Be it jeans, skirt, shorts or whatever you can think off, it matches to a tee! All colours look good in my opinion! So I’m still at a loss because I feel like keeping it in all colours! :X

Caryn Full Crotchet Blouse

Yes, this is my FAVOURITE this collection. Have been searching high and low for a statement crotchet piece and this is just THE ONE for when we saw it. I bet it will be for you as well. The crotchet pattens are just too pretty to resist, not forgetting that that workmanship is excellent too. For the brave ladies, you can choose to wear it with a bikini for the beach getaways and stand out from the crowd in this piece!

Cheery Rainbow Stripes Tank

In rainbow stripes, this piece is just nothing else but pretty!! We have a thing for rainbow coloured items because wearing it makes us feel SUPER HAPPY! Made of comfort knit, we’re sure it will become a wardrobe favourite in no time. We foresee you wearing it over and over again because this outfit can never fail. :D

Noriko Polka Dot Floral Top

Gosh I can’t elaborate just how much I love love love this piece! It was love at first sight for me and I just got to bring this in. In my favourite high neckline cutting that is always flattering and chic, this piece combines polka dots and tiny flowers so perfectly. So cute and so chic please. Hahaha. I already kept a piece for myself! Yay max!

Marilyn Reversible Bodycon Dress

Omg this dress is REVERSIBLE ok!! How fun! Best of all the cutting and the material use is soooo fabulous. I would say it can’t be love at first sight for a basic BUT this is love at first TOUCH. You girls really have got to own a piece yourself to know why we say that. The material is just too comfortable, to the extent I wish my bedsheets are made of this. Really mega love! For the conservative ladies, you wouldn’t have to wear it alone. Pair it with jeggings and throw on some knitted throwover/sleek blazers. It will be just as chic. :)

Ok and lastly, Zarane Classic Shift Dress! It was a sold out previously in Black and Pink, so we decided to bring in the white one. Don’t worry about it being sheer because it isn’t and this just awesome!

Alrights! We’re really hoping you girls will love this collection as much as we do! Do show us some love over at our Facebook Page ok? There are more items up over on our Facebook Page which is just as pretty but it’s time I get back to editting the photos for the launch tomorrow. Hahaha. :D

We’ll see you at the collection! Till then!! :))

Oh yes, please feel free to spam us any questions on formspring if you have any! We’ll be more than glad to fill you in with any details or information that you want.
