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!
