When a busy, active life demands that you constantly move your feet, you need good shoes that can adapt to your life on the go.

Our feet are our levers, balancers and shock absorbers. Keep them happy and healthy. Wearing heels all day can be tiring and give you bad blisters, so leave the stilettos at home and choose comfortable sneakers instead.
If you ever wished your favorite sneakers could give you the confidence and lengthen those legs like stilettos do, shoe lifts are the simplest solution. Add up to 2 inches (or 4.5cm) taller with these removable silicone insoles that you can wear with almost any regular shoe. The height is adjustable by removing the detachable silicone heel. Works best with high-top sneakers and boots.

I'm blessed! I've always been an adidas girl for as long as I've done sports so I was thrilled to hear that they wanted me to be a part of their new women's campaign. In line with their new Spring/Summer 2012 Sport & Style collection, the campaign is inspired by next generation athletes who embody the adidas brand anthem ‘adidas is all in’. Now I don't know about you, but when I put on my adidas, I feel like I'm ready to take on any challenge! That's exactly what this campaign is about - it's for women who dare.
So a few weeks ago, I did a video shoot with adidas. The video was released 2 weeks later at the media event held at Teeq & Rootz in Kuala Lumpur. Here it is...
Absolutely LOVED the campaign photos too!
Some outtakes from the shoot...
The media event was hosted by Hansen Lee and the show kicked off with this group of fitness instructors who definitely HAD THE MOVES!
Thank you for all the support and the love on my blog. I never expected that it would take me this far and I'm so grateful to YOU, my readers! YOU keep me going and this blog rolling. I'm pleased to share that I'm currently taking a personal training course with ACE Fitness (about time!) as I realized that THIS is what I really want to get into. So here's to another chapter in my fitness journey... Carpe diem!

Have fun shopping!
Being the beach bum that I am, I'm always shopping for new bikinis. Most bikinis come in free size and you can find plenty anywhere but finding the right bikini for your body is important so you can flatter the right curves.
A friend of mine, I'Ling, recently moved to Singapore from Hawai'i and opened a bikini & yoga apparel store with her best friend, Sarah. Both are dancers (mainly pole-dancing), hence they know exactly what to look for when it comes to activewear.
Those who are into pole-dancing would love these Pleaser heels which are also available at the store. These super-sexy high heels come in various styles are comfortable enough to be worn out, all thanks to the pig-skin lining and cushioned soles.
There are at least 3 different styles for the top - triangle cut, bra top & bandeau and for the bottom -itsy bitsy, love without the handles (shown above) & scrunch booty (my fav!).
Store is open between 12pm to 9pm by appointment only for now. Contact the store to make an arrangement before you drop by.

Interested in renting a dress but afraid you might ruin it due to unforeseen circumstances?
When you rent from Dress Sense, you first have to pay the full purchase price, which works like a deposit. After the two weeks’ rental, if you decide that you love the dress too much to return it, you can simply give them a call and keep the dress without having to make another trip down. However, if you want to return the rented item, all you have to do is to bring the item back in good order and you will get a refund (price of the difference between the purchase and the rental price) via the credit card that you made payment with, so there would be no cash involved.
In damage cases, Dress Sense hold the refund while their tailors and laundromat review how serious the damage is.
There are generally 3 levels of damages:
1. If the dress can be brought back to good condition via alteration or laundering, they will retain the respective alteration or laundry fee from your deposit and refund the rest as per normal.
2. If the damages cannot be made right with the above but can still be put back on the selling floor at a discounted rate, they will retain 15% of the dress’s purchase price as a penalty fee to make up for the discount and refund the rest as per normal.
3. If the damages are too serious for the dress to be saved, the dress will be considered sold and no refund will be made.
In all three cases, no additional transaction will be required on the customer’s part. Dress Sense makes all the transactions it easy and convenient.
I have to say, after using their rental service more than twice, you can testify that their dresses are extremely well-made and it doesn’t take a lot of effort to return them well! Check out Dress Sense on Facebook.
I am so in love with these boots from YesStyle.com that I own 2 pairs in both brown and black. They're so comfortable and has a hidden 3-inch wedged heel so I don't feel totally short when I'm wearing them.
Should I get one in white too? ^_^
